Classic VW Campervan for branding & marketing

The current technology enable us to change the colour of our cars for temporary, not permanent, without having to costly & time consuming repainting. Thanks to the cutting stickers & large size computer printing technology. It’s available in many places in Indonesian major cities & the price is relatively affordable. If you have complex graphic design, then you would need the computer printing. If the design is simple, then the cutting sticker  will do just fine.
Teknologi masa kini memungkinkan kita mengubah warna mobil sesuai keinginan kita untuk sementara waktu, tak permanen, tanpa harus melakukan proses pencatan yang mahal & lama. Ini berkat teknologi cutting sticker & cetak komputer berukuran besar. Teknologi ini tersedia di kota-kota besar di Indonesia & harganya relatif terjangkau. Jika desainnya rumit, gunakanlah cetak komputer. Tetapi jika desainnya sederhana, maka cutting sticker akan cukup.

Partying the 17th Birthday in Style

Ariane 18This extraordinary friend of mine, who has the Volkswagen Town in his house & a double sliding 1977 VW Kombi, has a daughter who was about to turn to 17 years old. The daughter, Ariane (named after the European space rocket), wanted to have an outdoor BBQ style party with a VW Campervan, celebrating it with her friends.
Kawan saya yang memilliki Volkswagen Town & sebuah VW Kombi 77 dengan dobel pintu geser (masih ingat ?) mempunyai seorang putri yang berulang tahun ke 17. Namanya Ariane, diambil dari nama roket luar angkasa Eropa. Ariane punya ide untuk mengadakan pesta ulang tahun barbekyuan di halaman rumahnya dengan kehadiran sebuah VW Campervan.

The happiest birthday girl...

Ariane, the happiest birthday girl on earth…

So, the 1963 Red Hot Chili Peppers VW Campervan was brought in with full of force. Please enjoy the photo gallery.

Campervan camping in Gunung Pancar (again)

Here we are, camping in Gunung Pancar again. Gunung Pancar is a favorite place because it’s near from Jakarta, good access road, not too high elevation (only around 400m asl) & not far from a supermarket or convenience stores for the supplies.
Untuk kesekian kalinya, kami kembali camping di Gunung Pancar. Tempat ini sudah menjadi favorit karena letaknya yang dekat dari Jakarta, aksesnya mudah, elevasinya tidak terlalu tinggi (hanya 400m dpl) & tidak jauh dari supermarket atau toko retail.

Pancar M89 10In honoring to two of our college friends; one is still under a medical treatment & another one is having a vacation in Indonesia (he lives in Zurich, Switzerland) I gave them the idea to do an easy camping in Gunung Pancar, bringing a campervan; something they wanted to know. Another friend joining us with his 9yo son & 5yo female Doberman.
Untuk menghormati dua orang kawan kuliah dulu; satu sedang menjalani pengobatan & satu lagi sedang berlibur ke tanah air (beliau tinggal di Zurich, Swiss), saya mengajak mereka camping ke Gunung Pancar dengan menggunakan campervan, sesuatu yang sebelumnya membuat mereka penasaran. Satu kawan lagi bergabung membawa putranya berumur 9 tahun & anjing Dobermannya berumur 5 tahun.Pancar M89 9It was two days after Eid Al-Fitr; the Jagorawi toll road had a 1km long traffic jam before the Sentul City exit, the place was crowded with people, motorcycles & cars. Yes, it was still holiday season. Compared with the last time I came here, this time was completely different; too many visitors, littering garbage everywhere & bad traffic. The good news was we got the best camping spot; the same spot when we were here in January.
Waktunya hanya dua hari sesudah Lebaran; jalan tol Jagorawi macet parah 1km sebelum pintu keluar Sentul City, tempatnya penuh dengan pengunjung, sepeda motor & mobil. Betul, masih dalam masa liburan. Berbeda dengan waktu kami camping di sini di bulan Januari lalu, sekarang lokasinya terlalu ramai, sampah berserakan di mana-mana & lalu lintas yang padat. Kabar baiknya adalah kami mendapatkan spot camping yang terbaik, yang sama dengan camping terakhir lalu.

Pancar M89 3So we spot the Deep Purple campervan in the same position. This time we rigged up three tents on the flat field below. When the dusk coming by, many visitors disappeared. Only a few families setting up their tents nearby. We enjoying more as the place became quieter.
Kami memarkirkan Deep Purple di tempat yang sama. Lalu kami mendirikan tiga buah tenda di lapangan yang datar di bawahnya. Menjelang senja hari, banyak pengunjung yang kembali pulang. Hanya beberapa keluarga yang bercamping malam itu. Lokasinya pun menjadi tenang & lebih menyenangkan.

Pancar M89 4 Pancar M89 5

One thing to tell is regarding the female Doberman; Gamma. She is very well trained by her owner. She obeys her master’s commands to stay, to sit, to get into her portable kennel, to get out, etc. She didn’t really get distracted by the crowded. She was pretty much focusing to her master. And she was a very good guard dog, guarding us during the night. She didn’t bark at all during the stay but she could detect if somebody has a bad intention to us; what Cesar Millan always says ‘the negative energy’ that dogs feel & see. In this situation, without barking, she will show her stand & if the guy keep approaching, she will bite, a bad bite.
Ada satu hal yang menarik untuk diceritakan di sini yaitu anjing Doberman betina yang diajak camping bernama Gamma berumur 5 tahun. Kelihatan sekali bahwa anjing ini sangat terlatih. Gamma menurut apa saja yang diperintahkan oleh tuannya sekaligus pelatihnya untuk diam di tempat, duduk, untuk masuk ke dalam kandang portabelnya, untuk keluar kandang, dsb. Gamma tidak begitu terdistraksi oleh keramaian melainkan tetap fokus kepada pelatihnya. Anjing ini juga anjing penjaga yang baik, menjaga kami di waktu malam. Selama di tempat camping, Gamma tidak menggonggong sekalipun. Anjing ini dapat mendeteksi kalau ada orang yang berniat jahat, sesuatu yang sering disebutkan oleh Cesar Millan sebagai ‘energi negatif’ yang dirasakan & dilihat oleh anjing. Dalam situasi seperti ini, tanpa menggonggong, Gamma akan berdiri menghadang & jika orang berniat jahat tersebut tetap maju, maka Gamma akan menyerang & menggigit, yang dapat mengakibatkan cedera serius.

Pancar M89 6Bombay Matano 1

Next time, I will bring my Labrador & perhaps my Beagle camping with her & let them be trained by my friend.
Lain waktu, saya akan membawa serta Labrador saya & mungkin juga Beagle untuk camping bersama Gamma & akan memberi kesempatan kepada kawan saya untuk coba melatihnya.

Pancar M89 7Eating, cooking, talking, drinking, cooking, eating, talking, etc. that’s all we did spending the evening & the night. We also set up a bonfire & burned a few marshmallows. It was a dry season so we had no worries of getting rain.
Makan, memasak, ngobrol, minum-minum, memasak, makan, ngobrol, dsb. Hanya itulah yang kami lakukan bersama mengisi waktu sore & malam. Kami juga menyalakan api ungun & memanggang marshmallow. Di tengah musim kering, kami tidak kuatir akan turun hujan.

Pancar M89 8It was a pleasant quick & easy camping with my old friends. Usually I do camping with my family. We enjoy our friendship. By the next morning, we left the place back to Jakarta. Gunung Pancar, for sure, sooner or later, we’ll be back with the campervans.
Acara campingnya cukup singkat tetapi sangat berkesan diluangkan bersama-sama kawan lama. Biasanya saya camping bersama keluarga. Kami menikmati persahabatan ini. Di pagi harinya, kami kembali pulang menuju Jakarta. Cepat atau lambat, kami pasti akan kembali ke Gunung Pancar.

Camping to Wisata Capolaga, Subang

Cardamom (/ˈkɑrdəməm/), sometimes called cardamon, is a spice made from the seeds of several plants in the genera Elettaria & Amomum in the family Zingiberaceae.

The participants of Capolaga Camping event conducted by Alumni of ITB – Para peserta acara Camping di Capolaga dari Alumni ITB. Camping bersama ini merupakan acara rutin.

It was in June 2015, a dry season month, on the last weekend before the fasting month of Ramadhan began, we took the two Campervans (Red Hot Chili Peppers & Deep Purple) for camping. There were 36 people in the group consisted of our whole family, with some closed friends of our daughter & friends of ITB alumni with their families.
Pada awal bulan Juni setelah memasuki musim kering, pada akhir pekan terakhir sebelum bulan puasa, kami membawa dua Campervan (Red Hot Chili Peppers & Deep Purple) pergi camping. Rombongan terdiri dari 36 orang yaitu kami sekeluarga beserta beberapa teman dekat anak kami & beberapa alumni ITB bersama keluarga & sanak saudaranya.

The Block F camping ground occupied by tents & Campervans – Area camping Blok F diisi oleh tenda-tenda & Campervan.

We chose a new outdoor place called Wisata Capolaga, located about 3km away from the popular hot spring Ciater (north of Bandung), Subang, West Java. The main attractions of the area are the three natural water falls, which all of them are friendly enough for us to take shower below them, & also several camping grounds.
Kami memilih sebuah tempat wisata outdoor yang relatif baru bernama Wisata Capolaga. Lokasinya sekitar 3km dari perempatan Ciater (sebelah utara Bandung), kabupaten Subang. Atraksi utama tempat ini adalah tiga buah air terjun (disebutnya Curug dalam Bahasa Sunda) yang semuanya dapat dijadikan tempat bermandi, selain beberapa area camping.

Capolaga 6

Recharging the batteries using solar cells – Mengising ulang batere dengan memanfaatkan sinar surya.

To get there is not difficult. From Pasar Minggu, South of Jakarta, it is about 135km away via Purwakarta-Wanayasa, or 145km via the new Cipali toll way & Subang, or 194km via Bandung-Lembang. At that time, the new Cipali toll way was not opened yet, so from Jakarta we took the Cikampek toll way, exited in Jatiluhur, went through city of Purwakarta to Wanayasa town, got in to the popular Jalan Cagak junction, turned right about 9km uphill until we reached the intersection of Ciater. Take the right turn & the location is 3km away from there. Please drive cautiously since there is a narrow & continuously straight downhill road more than 500m long through a village before reaching the location.
Menuju lokasi tidaklah susah. Dari Pasar Minggu, Jakarta Selatan, jaraknya sekitar 135km jika melalui Purwakarta-Wanayasa, atau 145km lewat jalan toll baru Cipali & kota Subang, atau 194km via kota Bandung & Lembang. Pada waktu kami ke sana awal bulan Juni, toll Cipali belum dibuka, sehingga kami mengambil jalur Purwakarta-Wanayasa; dari toll Purbaleunyi exit di pintu toll Jatiluhur, masuk ke kota Purwakarta, ke arah kota kecamatan Wanayasa, sampai muncul di pertigaan Jalan Cagak. Belok kanan menanjak sekitar 9km sampai ke perempatan Ciater. Masuk ke kanan & lokasinya berjarak sekitar 3km. Mohon mengemudikan kendaraan dengan berhati-hati waktu melewati jalan sempit pedesaan yang menurun panjang & lurus sejauh lebih dari 500m sebelum sampai ke lokasi.

Red Hot Chilli Peppers campervan at the Cikampek toll road – Campervan Red Hot Chilli Peppers di jalan toll Cikampek.

We stayed at the Block F camping ground, nearby Gate 2; the only camping ground where we can park our cars in. Getting near to our cars means we can bring additional extra equipment & more food & water for more convenience.  The maximum capacity of the Block F is 50 people, without the cars. If you park the cars inside, then the capacity is reduced. However, there is a parking lot just next to it. The elevation is about 810m asl. The temperature range is 20-31 Centigrade.
Kami bercamping di Blok F, dekat Gerbang 2; satu-satunya area camping dimana kita dapat membawa mobil masuk. Berada dekat dengan mobil berarti lebih banyak peralatan camping, makanan & minuman yang dapat dibawa untuk kenyamanan kita. Maksimum kapasitas area camping Blok F adalah 50 orang, tanpa mobil. Jika mobil diparkir di dalam, maka kapasitas orangnya akan berkurang. Untuk itu ada tempat parkir kendaraan tepat di sebelahnya. Elevasinya adalah 810m di atas permukaan laut. Temperatur berkisar dari 20-31 derajat Celcius.

Capolaga 8

From this angle, we can see the Block F camping ground clearer – Dari sudut kamera ini, area camping Blok F terlihat lebih jelas.

Block F is located nearby a public toilet (MCK), less than 100m away. There are five bathrooms with squatting type toilet & one bathroom with sitting type toilet. Most of the rooms have light & all have running fresh natural water. Next to the MCK is a musholla.
Blok F tempatnya berdekatan dengan MCK umum, kurang dari 100m saja jaraknya. Terdapat lima buah kamar mandi dengan toilet jongkok & satu buah kamar mandi dengan toilet duduk. Semuanya tersedia dengan air segar pegunungan yang terus-terusan mengalir & juga dilengkapi dengan lampu. Tepat di sebelah MCK terdapat sebuah musholla.

The security gate & office are also located not too far from the Block F, together with the main parking lots & food & souvenirs shops. During weekend, please be prepared that the area will be crowded of visitors & many cars will get in & out back & forth. However, Block F is little separated away & we still keep the privacy.
Gerbang sekuriti & kantor staf juga letaknya berdekatan dengan Blok F, tak jauh dari tempat parkir utama kendaraan & warung-warung suvenir & makanan. Walaupun begitu, Blok F letaknya terpisah sehingga privasinya cukup terjaga.

Goa Badak waterfall – Curug Goa Badak

From there, walking down the hill about 5-10mins, we will get to the 3rd water fall. It’s called Curug Goa Badak (Curug = waterfall, Goa = cave, Badak = rhino, so please interpret yourself). This is the most downstream waterfall out of three; the biggest one, less than 10m tall & the only one with a shallow pool beneath it for us to swim, to play water or to bath. Since it is the closest one to the  parking lot, the waterfall is the most crowded one with visitors.
Dari area tersebut, jalanan menurun sekitar 5-10menit, kita akan sampai ke curug (yang artinya air terjun) no 3. Namanya Curug Goa Badak. Dari tiga buah curug, yang ini letaknya paling di hilir, paling besar, tingginya kurang dari 10m & satu-satunya yang ada kolamnya yang tidak dalam untuk bermain air, berenang & mandi. Karena letaknya paling dekat ke tempat parkir umum, curug ini pun menjadi yang paling ramai dikunjungi orang.

Capolaga 4

Sawer waterfall – Curug Sawer.

From there, walking uphill about 400m to reach the 2nd waterfall; the smallest but the tallest (about 30-40m), called Curug Sawer. During the dry season where the water flow is small, it’s convenient to take a shower beneath it. There are several locations for camping nearby this waterfall. It’s on a valley & the ground is flat. In my opinion, this is the best location for camping, as long as you have no problem carrying all your camping gears, food & water  400-500m away from your car.
Dari situ, jalan ke atas sekitar 400m, kita akan sampai ke curug kedua; curug yang paling kecil tetapi paling tinggi (sekitar30-40m) yang dinamakan Curug Sawer. Pada waktu musim kering, debit air kecil sehingga kita dapat bermain pancuran di bawahnya dengan nyaman. Di sekitarnya ada beberapa lokasi camping di dasar sebuah lembah yang relatif rata. Menurut opini penulis, area di sini adalah lokasi terbaik untuk camping, sepanjang kita tak masalah membawa peralatan camping, makanan & air sejauh 400-500m dari tempat parkir kendaraan.

Karembong waterfall top – Curug Karembong atas.

Walk further uphill about 300m to reach the most upstream waterfalls; the most spectacular ones, the 1st waterfall. Yes, actually there are two water falls in one location & to distinguish them, let me call it Curug Karembong top & Curug Karembong bottom (Karembong = scarf). I call it the most spectacular one due to the contour of the rock walls shaped from different layers of volcanic rocks. If you are brave enough, you can try to climb up the walls. If you are strong enough, you can take a shower beneath the top waterfall one, at least 30m tall, letting your body & head get stomped by the falling water. The water is cold & the wind draft will make it even colder.
Kalau kita jalan lagi ke arah hulu, maka setelah 300m kita akan sampai ke curug no 1 yang paling tinggi elevasinya & yang paling spektakuler. Sebetulnya curug ini terdiri dari dua buah curug yang terpisah atas-bawah sehingga penulis sebut saja namanya Curug Karembong atas & Curug Karembong bawah. Karembong adalah Bahasa Sunda yang artinya selendang. Disebut paling spektakuler karena kontur dinding batu vulkaniknya yang terbentuk secara berlapis-lapis & bergerigi. Jika cukup berani, maka Anda dapat mencoba memanjat dinding batu ini. Jika Anda cukup kuat, maka cobalah mandi di bawah kucuran air di curug yang atas, tingginya sekitar 30m. Airnya dingin & hempasan angin akan membuat tubuh Anda makin kedinginan.

Pink Floyd: our 4th Campervan

So, here we are, after 12 months in waiting & expected by many people. Introducing to you our newest member in the Jakarta VW Campervan fleet; Pink Floyd. Yes, as usual, the name is given based on the color (i.e. pink & white) & the rock group band.
Akhirnya setelah 12 bulan masa penantian & telah ditanyakan banyak orang, Campervan kami yang terbaru sudah siap. Sesuai pakemnya, Campervan warna pink-putih ini dinamakan Pink Floyd.

Campervan Pink Floyd: in a picnic mode…

Exterior; it’s a replica of the world’s famous Volkswagen 23-windows Samba. The Volkswagen Samba, in the United States also known as Sunroof Deluxe, was the most luxurious version of the Volkswagen Transporter T1. Volkswagen started producing Sambas in 1951 until 1967.
Eksteriornya mengikuti salah satu model minibus Volkswagen yang sangat terkenal di dunia, yaitu Samba atau juga Sunroof Deluxe. Samba ini adalah model Volkswagen Transporter generasi pertama (T1) yang paling mewah & dibuat dari tahun 1951 sampai 1967.

Pink Floyd 7

“Pink is a beautiful color, because it’s one of the colors that the sun makes at twilight & in the dawns.” C Joybell C

Eutrodicted 1BWC

Originally Volkswagen vans were classified according to the number of windows they had. This particular model had 23 and later 21 windows including eight panoramic windows in the roof. To distinguish it from the normal 23 or 21-window Volkswagen van the name Samba was coined.
Awalnya minibus Volkswagen digolongkan berdasarkan jumlah jendelanya. Model Samba ini mempunyai 23 jumlah jendela, lalu menjadi 21, termasuk delapan jendela kecil tambahan di bagian atap. Untuk membedakan dengan minibus model 23 atau 21 jendela yang lain,  lalu nama Samba diberikan.

 

Pink Floyd 20

From this low angle view, we can figure out how big the ragtop sun-roof is of the Samba model.

The Samba had two pivot doors, instead of a sliding door. In addition the Samba had a fabric sunroof. At that time Volkswagen advertised with the idea of using the Samba to make tourist trips through the Alps in Europe.
Model Samba mempunyai dua pintu ayun samping, bukan pintu geser. Di atapnya, Samba mempunyai jendela sunroof yang ditutup dengan bahan terpal. Pada mulanya, Volkswagen memasarkan model Samba untuk dipakai para turis di pegunungan Alpen, Eropa.

Sambas were standard painted in two colors. Usually, the upper part was colored white. The two colored sections were separated by a decorative strip.
Menurut standard, Samba dicat dua warna. Umumnya, bagian atas diwarnai putih. Kedua bagian badan mobil yang berbeda warna dipisahkan oleh sebuah strip dekoratif.

Nice, neat, clean & modern 1700cc engine, with double-carburetors, dual-alternators, dual batteries & AC. The passengers convenience & reliability are the key here.

When Volkswagen started producing the successor of the T1 (the T2) the company also stopped producing the Samba so there are no Sambas in later versions of the Volkswagen Transporter.
Ketika Volkswagen mulai memproduksi minibus generasi kedua (T2), maka model Samba pun dihentikan pembuatannya. Model Samba tidak lagi dibuat di generasi-generasi minibus berikutnya.

A vintage car window tray is a time-capsule to bring you backward to 1960-70s where driving-in restaurants were popular; you enjoy the meals in your car & served by pretty waitress in roller skates. “I would like to order a double cheese burger with extra pickles, large french fries & iced soda, please…”

Interior wise; it’s the standard Jakarta Campervan layout just like the other two elder brothers; Red Hot Chilli Peppers & Deep Purple. It has the ‘Rock-n-Roll’ seat-bed, a 55-watt refrigerator, 2ea portable gas stove using butane cans, a washing sink with electric-powered water pump & plenty of storage.
Interior Pink Floyd mengikuti standard layout Jakarta Campervan, sama mirip dengan kakak-kakaknya; Red Hot Chilli Peppers & Deep Purple.

The wide-angle view of the cabin facing forward. The large sunroof is open & the blue sky is your backdrop. Plenty of sunshine into the cabin. The long Campervan cabinets are on the right hand side providing stoves, a refrigerator, a sink & extra storage.

The two rear-facing buddy seats are also storage & portable. You may place them outside adding more seats on a camping location or you may leave them at home if you need more cabin space for carrying cargo.
Dua buah jok buddy-seat di belakang jok depan mempunyai tempat penyimpanan di bagian bawahnya & juga portabel. Di lokasi camping, kedua jok buddy-seat ini dapat dilepas & disimpan di luar untuk menambah tempat duduk, atau sebaliknya disimpan saja di rumah jika kita memerlukan ruang luas untuk membawa kargo di dalam kabin.

As the famous Samba, it has eight ceiling-mounted little windows so called Skylight windows; four on each side. And the best of all, it has an extra large panoramic roof with sliding fabric cover, so called rag-top. At the camping ground, you may lay on the bed at night & looking at stars in the sky. Driving at the mountains, you can also leave it open & let the cool & fresh air blowing in abundantly. Trust me, the children sitting in the back will love it so much.
Seperti di model Samba, ada empat jendela kecil masing-masing di sisi kiri & kanan atap, yang dinamakan Skylight windows. Dan yang paling banyak disukai orang, ada sebuah sunroof panoramik yang sangat besar di tengah-tengah. Tutupnya terbuat dari bahan kanvas yang lalu dinamakan rag-top. Di lokasi camping, sambil baringan di tempat tidur, kita dapat melihat bintang-bintang di langit melalu sunroof ini. Jika mobil sedang jalan di pegunungan atau dataran tinggi, sunroof ini dapat dibiarkan terbuka & udara sejuk segar melimpah mengisi seisi kabin. Pecayalah, anak-anak yang duduk di belakang akan sangat menyukainya.

Psychology of color PINK: Brighter pinks are youthful & exciting, while vibrant pink has the same high energy as red; they are sensual & passionate without being too aggressive. Toning down the passion of red with the purity of white results in the softer pinks that are associated with romance & the blush of a young woman’s cheeks.

Bright pinks, like the color red, stimulate energy & can increase the blood pressure, respiration, heart beat & pulse rate. They also encourage action & confidence. Pink has been used in prison holding cells to effectively reduce erratic behavior.

All of our Campervans are equipped with classic style roof rack & rear rack. Pink Floyd has two separated roof racks; i.e. 2-legs & 3-legs ones. The separated roof rack is to accommodate the middle large sunroof. The rear rack can hold up to two bicycles. The side-awning is also a standard item. It is mounted onto the roof racks. It provides a shade during a hot day or wet day.
Semua Campervan kami dilengkapi dengan rak atap & rak belakang yang bergaya klasik. Pink Floyd mempunyai dua rak atap terpisah, yaitu satu dengan dua kaki & satunya lagi dengan tiga kaki. Kedua rak atap ini sengaja didesain untuk terpisah agar tak menghalangi sunroof besar di tengah. Rak belakang dapat memuat sampai dua buah sepeda. Tenda samping juga merupakan kelengkapan standard. Tenda ini diikat ke rak atap & menyediakan perlindungan terhadap panas sinar matahari atau juga di waktu hujan.
