Reuni bersama Pecinta Trooper sejati di Surabaya

in-the-middle-of-jungleDear sahabat “da Trooper Bali” dimanapun berada,
Pada kesempatan kali ini saya ingin berbagi kebahagiaan dan kenangan dengan sahabat semua mengenai arti persahabatan sejati.



Selamat menyimak.


Beberapa waktu yang lalu bertempat di Hotelku, Karang Menjangan Surabaya, saya berkesempatan bertemu dengan dua sahabat lama yang saya kenal sejak 15 tahun yang lalu di saat awal awal saya mulai memakai SUV Trooper. Mereka adalah Cak Zainal Mochamad dan Mas Nanang Darmantyo. Mereka ini lah yang banyak memberikan ilmu pengetahuan seputar SUV Trooper, sehingga saya mengerti dan melek bagaimana merawat dan mengerti sejarah perjalanan SUV Trooper sampai seperti yang kita kenal saat ini.DEWA&TROOPER-SILVER



Saya merasa sangat beruntung dikunjungi oleh sahabat sahabat lama ini di penginapan  saya di Surabaya, di saat saat saya butuh teman yang bisa saya ajak berbagi dan berdiskusi mengenai berbagai hal baik itu masalah pertemanan, pesahabatan, hobby, kehidupan dan tentu saja masalah Trooper dan pernak perniknya.

Kamipun ngobrol panjang lebar dan bernostalgia mengingat bagaimana saat saat pertama kami berjumpa dan mengadakan pertemuan hingga 60 an SUV Trooper di Bali pada tahun 2006 yang lampau. Kenangan masa lalu selalu indah untuk dikenang, terlepas dari berbagai hal pro dan kontranya.

Akhirnya kami pun ngobrol hingga larut malam.

Terimakasih Cak Zainal Mochamad dan Mas Nanang Darmantyo yang telah mengunjungi saya dan istri di saat saya membutuhkan teman untuk berbagi.
Semoga persahabatan ini selalu abadi dan tidak terkontaminasi oleh kepentingan tertentu yang dapat merusak sebuah persahabatan.



Salam Persahabatan,

(Reposted) Let’s go to Banyuwangi….! part. 1.

Hi brother of da Trooper and all of “da Trooper Bali”  website visitors….

I am back again to you after a few days busy with my regular job as I have to feeding my family to provide their needs. I just finalized my article of Banyuwangi, as our next plan is to explore the beauty of Banyuwangi. Before we go there I think It is would be worth for all of us whoever will join with KTI Bali to got to Banyuwangi on our next adventure touring.

Lets start now….

After Trooper Indonesia Gathering (TIG) VII which just held in Yogyakarta from 8 to 11 July 2007 KTI Bali members seem not do any activity to trekking or out door. It seem they are quiet busy with their routine activity. But one of the members suddenly call me and encourages to go to Sukamade in Banyuwangi residence for our next out door schedule..

This invitation seem so challenging as some of KTI Bali members never visit Sukamade and me too. I understand and heard that Sukamade and Meru Betiri beach which is so closed with the city. If we see on the map, Banyuwangi it self is a spectacular next door neighbor of Bali and very closed with Jembrana residence, separated by the strait of Bali.  Banyuwangi is a part of East Java province and only about 25 minute ferry ride from Gilimanuk to Ketapang harbor.

Before we go there, it would be good to know and learn about it. About the people, about the culture, about the city, about the arts which is almost the same like the one we may see in Bali, about the history and an interesting legend of Banyuwangi name. I have read a few books about Banyuwangi and compiled to share it to all of you a KTI friends and a visitors of KTI Bali website.

Please enjoy the story….

Banyuwangi city is surrounded by beauty and abounding in history, sights, and in particular, performing arts.  In the city we can visit the Blambangan Museum a home of the ancient scripts and archaeological treasures. The history unfold in the old British quarter with a building that dated back 1766, a time when the British had just started a trading cooperative with the Chinese. There also a richly decorated Chinese temple in the corner of the city.

On the way you will easy to find a “becak” the pushed bicycle with three wheels which push by a man.  It’s about the city. Well, as we drive da Trooper and willing to know and follows the pathways that we can passing by, we plan to go to Meru Betiri and Alas Purwo the national park in Banyuwangi residence.

Banyuwangi name came from the “Banyu” = water and “wangi” = nice smell / floral aroma smell. So if we translate it in English the name of the city is “Nice smell of water”. Do you know why the city call by this name..?  It’s very interesting that you will know why the name of the city is Banyuwangi.

All right here is the full story. Enjoy it. Hope you will open your frame atmosphere more wide guys….

There is three an interesting places in the far east of Java. First place is Baluran, where is the covey of wild buffalo life and under the protection of the government.

The second is Banyuwangi, whereas the people who will cross to Bali Island must passing this city before they jump onto the ferry to cross the strait of Bali.

Banyuwangi the nearest neighboring to Bali, that’s way their culture quiet close compare to Balinese. Especially their dance performance and a little things of their language quiet close to Balinese in some parts. 

And the third place is Blambangan is known by the temple of Blambangan as long time a go Blambangan is the city of the Blambangan Kingdom. Blambangan is a Hindu Kingdom during that time. And nowadays, the temple still standing and be a famous distance of Balinese Hindu Community to their “tirtayatra” (Tirtayatra = Tour to visit any temple with a specific and has an history of ancient Hinduism).

The name of Banyuwangi is start from this epos story.  Start from the city of Blambangan.

Blambangan city not so busy like Banyuwangi but in the past time in few years ago Blambangan is the center and the main city of the Blambangan empire  and has it’s empower during that time. On that time Blambangan kingdom ever trembling the Majapahit kingdom when the king of Blambangan kingdom was  Prabu Bhre Wirabhumi who is more famous with his name Menak Jinggo on the legend, but luckily there is a young man name Damar Wulan with his spectacular ability could kill Menak Jingga and Majapahit avoid from the harmful.

The name of the city of Banyuwangi are raised during the king of Blambangan was Prabu Menak Prakosa who was still the grand son of Prabu Menak Jingga or Prabu Bhre Wirabumi. The area of the kingdom of Bambina quiet big and even that time the king of Prabu Menak Prakosa could attack the Kingdom of Clunking in Bali Island. The selected troopers and a squad were sent to Klungkung, Bali and landed in Kusamba beach, Klungkung. The guards troopers of Klungkung kingdom who keeping the beach could not covered and could not attack against the Blambangan troopers who leads by their king Prabu Menak Prakosa himself. After grab Kusamba beach, a part of the Klungkung kingdom the troopers of Blambangan moving and attack Gianyar kingdom and in the short stage Gianyar also be a part of Blambangan kingdom as the Gianyar squad could not defend  their city line. When Gianyar fell down onto the Blambangan empower, the day was evening so the king of Blambangan Prabu Menak Prakosa order his troopers and squads to take a rest and make a based camp and raise a tents in the grass yard.

After they take a rest for few hours, the king of Blambangan call his assistant Adipati Ragajampi to discuss the strategy that could build to attack the Palaces of the king of Klungkung.

“Tomorrow early in the morning please go and lead the first attack to the Palace of the King of Klungkung. You may bring a half of the squads to empower your attack against them”. The King Prabu Menak Prakosa said.

“Yes your majesty” I will”. replied Adipati Ragajampi.

“Try to make them out from their bunker” While I will follow you with the rest of the squad to make the follows attack.” the King Prabu Menak Prakosa continue his order.

“I obey your order your majesty”. replied Adipati Ragajampi.

Again the King Prabu Menak Prakosa said : “If we won the battle, I will appointing you as a new King of Klungkung and be my representative in Bali…..!’. 

“I…. I….. I appreciate very much your present your majesty. I thanking you by thousand your majesty…” said Adipati Ragajampi with a lot of happiness in his face.

“So do your best and won the battle Ragajampi.” said the King Prabu Menak Prakosa again. “Try to finish and won the battle before I arrive and you could grab and arrest  the king of Klungkung …!!.”  The King continue.

“I will do my best your majesty…” replied Adipati Ragajampi. 

And the meeting is over.

While in the Palace of the King of Klungkung, Ida Cokorde Klungkung  also held a meeting with all of the family and relative of the kingdom. The King of Klungkung has two child who already been growth to a teenager. A son and a daughter. His son name Cokorde Bagus Tantra and his daughter name Dewi Supraba.

As a son of the king, Cokorde Bagus Tantra was a handsome guy. His figure not to high, not to skinny, he was an averages in size. He seem so qute, but his behavior some time not so good. Not good like his father, Cokorde Klungkung the King of Klungkung Kingdom. He easy to jealous if seeing  another people doing the better things than him. His age about twenty third years

The daughter of the King of Klungkung, Dewi Supraba the ages about eighteen years. She is very pretty and beautiful. With a nice good behavior and very helpful, make almost all of the people who met her will felt comfortable as Dewi Supraba love and respect to every one.

The King of Klungkung already been old. About 67 years. His faces have been shrinkage and his hair his beard is white. With sadness he said to his son and his daughter: “Tantra and  Supraba tonight both of you must go out from the Palace and disappear some where. If we won the battle you may back to the Palace.” said the Cokorde Klungkung, the King of Klungkung. 

“Father my beloved one, please allow me to stay. I want to accompanying mother.”  She request.

“Father allow me to go to the battle to attack the enemy” Allow me to battle against them… Cokorde Bagus Tantra requested. “ Cokorde Bagus Tantra also ask.

The King of Klungkung raised his hands and replied.

 “I appreciate very much your willing my son.” But I have thinking about it and decided that both of you must go now. If I die on the battle, at least I still have a son and who will there after will continue our kingdom.  And you can collect your power and get back our kingdom.” The King continue.

 “But father……”

 “Don’t argue with me again” Panglima Cokorde Rai will a companying you to the safe place.” The King of Klungkung than look at his wife and said : My wife, you may join them tonight to the safe place.” He said.

“No my husband. I will join you forever. In a glory or in a losses. I will never ever leave you.” She said.

The King knew very well his wife behavior. Once she decided it would not be change anymore.

The King of Klungkung then call his son : “Cokorde Bagus Tantra, come closed to me.  He order his son.

Last synopsys :

“My husband were not join in those battle to attack Bali Island.” Dewi Surati try to defendant  from her brother.

“I and uncle Cokorde Rai still built a squad and power to attack and get the Klungkung Kingdom, while you are here enjoy life with our enemy. If you still need me to acknowledge my sister, please help me.” He shout again loudly.

“Brother, what should I do…?” She asked Cokorde Bagus Tantra.

Adipati Ragajampi will be come to Blambangan to deserve. And in that time I will attack Klungkung and make a revenge and get back Klungkung Kingdom.” He explain.

Dewi Surati so scare heard his brother plan. With no need by herself she shooting: “Nooo….. It is impossible. I could not do it. I have been help by my husband when I am alone, no food, no one and the rebels almost kill me.” She said.

“Damm you…!!! You would not help me…? It’s fine. I will not push you to do that , but you must accept my judgments for your cheat.” Cokorde Bagus Tantra than go quickly.

“Brotherrr….?!!”  Dewi Surati call his brother, but Cokorde Bagus Tantra ignore it at all.

Cokorde Bagus Tantra run and jump within a second he disappear from the eyes of Dewi Surati.

Dewi Surati just stay alone and the tears drop from both of her eyes. She is so sad facing those fact.

A few days latter…..

Raden Banterang went out of the Palace to hunting the wild pigs in the jungle to help himself to have a fun thru the jungle.

His mind so confuse. His mother push him to find another girl who can give them a child soonest because of Dewi Surati is could not give them one, while Raden Banterang loving Dewi Surati so much. He facing a very difficult situation. To sit on his mother part or to Dewi Surati.

Therefore, he often go to the jungle to make a fun by hunting the wild pigs. But someday, when he ride his horse to the jungle, there a guy who worn a torn dirty shirt stop his step by standing in front of Raden Banterang way.

Raden Banterang very angry and asking: “Who are you…? What are you doing to stand in front of me…?”   He continue with a high tense voices.

“Please forgive me your majesty.” That guy fell himself in front of the foot of Raden Banterang.  “You are in dangerous. Big dangerous your majesty.

“Big dangerous…?” What do youi mean…?” Raden Banterang ask in counfuse.

 “Don’t you know that Dewi Surati is Dewi Supraba the King Klungkung daughter who will take a revenge for their parent day.” The guy continue.

“Hugh’ How do you knew this a beggar…? Raden Banterang asking again.

“Forgive me your majesty.. I’ve been tell by a trader people from Klungkung who make a business trading in Blambangan. He saw  Dewi Supraba in her new name Dewi Surati in Blambangan Palace. He never forget Dewi Supraba face, although she change her name to Dewi Surati and marry you your majesty.”

“Damm you a beggar. If you lie to me I will cut your neck . Because you so brave to cheat my wife.” He continue.

“Forgive your majesty. If you do not trust me, you will see the prove, right now Dewi Surati just put a Keris from the Klungkung Kingdom in pillow case of hers. In the short time you will kill by Dewi Supraba your majesty.

Raden Banterang has a high temperamental and he always judge and finalized the things at once before  he thinking it carefully. In this case he acknowledge the issue without investigate it is correct or wrong issue.  His heart so burn in angry. He abandon his plan to have a fun and hunting in the jungle. He jump onto his horse and back to the Blambangan.

When he arrive in the Palace he just entering their bed room . He is not see her wife.  “Hmm May be she is in the garden.” He said to himself snoozed.

Raden Banterang pull the pillow of them. And yes. There is a Keris inside. He pull the keris and he look carefully that keris in his hand. There is a Balinese words on the handle of the Keris. Yes the keris is belong to Klungkung Kingdom.

“Damm…..!!?! Raden Banterang moaning loudly. He take the keris and put inside of his trouser and run to the garden.

“Oh Raden Banterang my husband… ! What happen..? usually you will back in the evening….”

“Come with me….” Said Raden Banterang so cold.

With no talk, he bring his wife left Blambangan Palace in the horse to the jungle. Dewi Surati so surprise watching his husband face which is seem so angry.

He bring his wife to the rivers in the deep of the jungle where they met in the first time. He down his wife from the horse.

“My husband, why you bring me to this place…?” She asking.

Raden Banterang not answer his wife question. But he pull out the Keris from his wais and said.  : Dewi Suati…!!!!  Tell me the truth….!!!  Who are you….?!??” His order heard breaking the space.

Both eyes of Dewi Surati open widely when seeing the Keris that she knew is belong to his father, the King of Klungkung which given to his brother Cokorde Bagus Tantra when they will left the Palace Klungkung in the night before the battle against the trooper of Blambangan.

Raden Banterang appoint the Keris to the face of Dewi Surati and said “Dewi Surati, tell me the truth who are you…? He shout loudly.

“All right my husband I will tell you the truth.” She said in sadness. She is almost crying….“ I am Dewi Supraba the daughter of the King of Klungkung.  I from Adipati Ragajampi who want to catch me and push me to marry him.

“A very good you may open to me!.” Cut Raden Banterang.

“But believe me Raden Banterang, not a pity in my mind to trying to cheat you as my husband.” She continued.

“Why then this keris is put in your pillow…? Raden Banterang raise the Keris highly.

“No. I don’t know who put the keris in my pillow. It is true that a few days a go my brother visit me and push me to kill you, but I could not follow his order. How may could kill my husband.  Because I love you with all of my heart body soul.” She continue.

“Lier….” Raden Banterang shout veryloud and make Dewi Surati so trembling. Both of Raden Banterang eyes are red. His high temperament are came out and he could not think clearly what have been they facing actually. He always do a judgement and varnish before investigate and think it clearly. This habit will regret him later on.

“The prove is there.” He shouting even more loud. “But you still try to deny.”   You have to redeem your false and die in this keris. Your father keris.” He said continue.

“Please don’t my husband.” She look at her husband in sadness. “Don’t make my father’s keris dirty with my blood my husband. If you not trust me any more, it is fine but there is another way to prove my love and my loyal to you.”  I could not swim my darling. This river is very deep. The water run so fast. If I jump onto it, I will die soonest, but please give a chance to pry to my God Ida Hyang Widhi Wasa.

Raden Banterang stay stoned at his foot. His heart beating so fast. But since his mind are clamp by a angry and locked by a his high temperament he could not thinking brightly and clarity.

“All right.” I give you a chance to pry and apologize to the God Ida Hyang Widhi Wasa…..!!”  He shouting even more loud now.

With whispering Dewi Surati prying to the God Ida Hyang Widhi Wasa and wish; Oh my God, Ida Hyang Widhi Wasa, please show a prove to my husband how I love and loyal and I never been cheat to him. Please prove that I am a loyal wife of her.” She wish on her prying.

Upon finish prying, she look at her husband and said ; “My husband, be a witness. I will jump onto the river. If later on after I jump the water of the river fragrance the nice good smell of floral, it is the prove that I was a loyal and innocent wife of yours. But in opposite, if the water smell badly, it is the prove that I was a cheat wife and I am guilty. Okay my darling… Good bye my love…….!!!

“Byurrr……” the water in the river are foaming when accepting the body of Dewi Surati. Her body are dived into the water. And never raised again from the river.

Raden Banterang stay stoned at his foot. He watching the river with wide opened eyes, and only a few second there is a nice fragrance of floral smell from the water of the river.” Banyuwangi.” Raden Banterang shouting to him self. Banyuwangi mean a fragrance water.

Now Raden Banterang knew that his wife is true. She is a loyal loving wife. She is not guilty. She is very nice women and could not compare to any one that he knew.

Raden Banterang fall down to the ground. His eyes are wet with a tears. He regret at all. But every things has already done. Thousand regrets will never get back every things that has been done. Dewi Surati the beautiful wife, inner and outer the loving lady has gone. He will never take anyone to replace her completely.

The place that happen then named “Banyuwangi” as like what we known this time. In the modern era, Banyuwangi develop rapidly to the modern and busy city   like what we know at  this time.

A few month latter after the tragedy of Dewi Surati, Cokorde Bagus Tantra and Panglima Cokorde Rai attack the Klungkung Palace. Adipati Ragajampi could not deffence the Palace because almost all of the people of Klungkung backing up Cokorde Bagus Tantra and Panglima Cokorde Rai.

Before the people of the Klungkung get back the Palace, Adipati Ragajampi himself and his family with the rest of his squad escape from the Palace of Klungkung and go to the beach and sailing the sea  back to Blambangan.

Prabu Menak Prakosa so sad knowing the loss of Adipati Ragajampi from the people of Klungkung, and to appreciate his effort the King of Blambangan then assign and give him a place in the west of Banyuwangi until he died.

To remind him the place then called ROGOjampi, according to the local dialect.

That’s about Banyuwangi and Rogojampi history.

Back to our part, we plan to go to Banyuwangi in the near time…..

The last synopsys :

 If Raden Banterang see  anyone make a bad things, without thinking how and why, he will judge and varnish them at once. This is behavior will regret him latter on. 

As a young handsome guy and known as a King’s son, there is so many beautiful pretty women falling in love like crazy to him and wants to marry him, but so far none of them are interesting to Raden Banterang. Raden Banterang still like to hunting do a combat to anyone that seem so strong. He wants a new challenge and to be number one among the people.

When Raden Banterang went to the jungle to hunting the wild pigs he heard a lady voice crying and shouting “ Help…. Help…. Help…. Some one please help me….”

Raden Banterang fold his hand in front of his chest and said :”I am Raden Bantering the son of the Prabu Menak Prakosa, the King of Blambangan. And I hate a man like you who only cold brave to a girls.” He said.

Those bold man so surprise, his face change and seem soscare, but only a second, Raden Banterang already hit both of them in one time and make them throw away with a blood on their mouth and they die together.

After the two bold man die, Raden Banterang look at the young lady who is still trembling after watching how Raden Banterang kill those two bold man only in a second. She is seem so scare. Raden Banterang smile at her and said “Don’t worry I am not a bad guy. I will help you young lady.” So who is your name…?

I am a stupid girl by not knowing that you are Raden Banterang the son of the King of Blambangan.” She said. “I am Dewi Surati.” .”I am only a village girl.” She said again. “ I am escape from my village as my village destroy by those two bold man and their people. My parent are die killed by those two bold man.” I am escape from my village, but those bold man saw me and follow me until you help me from their dirty hands,” She continue again.

“Alright. Dewi Surati. I will introduce you to may parent. Would you like to see them.” Raden Banterang replied.

“No your majesty. It is impossible. And I am very scare to see them. I am only a village girl your majesty.” Replied Dewi Surati.

“it’s okay Dewi Surati. You will stay with me in the palace.” Said Raden Banterang while he push Dewi Surati to agree his request.

“What…. What….. What that mean your majesty…? Ask Dewi Surati.

“I am the open mind people Dewi.  If you like, would you please to marry me Dewi Surati….? Asked Raden Banterang with doubt.

‘Ah Raden….your majesty… you are do wrong choice your majesty. I am only a poor simply village girl. Does not knew any things about the palace. I am afraid would not serve you in the right way your majesty….” Said Dewi Surati again.

“It’s okay Dewi. Don’t you mention that again. okay..? closed Raden Banterang.

He swift his hand and grab Dewi Surati hand and pick her to get into the horse. And those couple move to the Blambangan Palace.

Raden Banterang is the type of a man who can decided in instant. He is so wonder about the face of Dewi Surati. Her face is really really pretty beautiful. He not need to investigate who is Dewi Surati, where she is came from. Completely not needed. He already falling in love with the first sight. He feel so closed and so familiar with this young lady.

But he is not a stupid people. Before he introduce Dewi Surati to his parent, he keep her in one of his shoulder and ask the palace women staff to bring every things needed for women to Dewi Surati, including the women wear to be worn by Dewi Surati.

When Dewi Surati finish making up and properly dressing, every body who see her in proper dress are open their eyes widely, because Dewi Surati is really really pretty and beautiful. Dewi Surati become like a goddess from the heaven. And she is the one who is necessary and good to be the wife of Raden Banterang. She is not only pretty and beautiful, but her behavior also is very nice like the prince of the kings.

Prabu Menak Prakosa who is wants to have a grandchild soon since the beginning Raden Banterang marry her, and he quiet disappoint with the fact and also the King’s wife seem very disappoint.. Dewi Surati very sad as the King wife always shown her disappoint and shown her dislike to Dewi Surati.

Dewi Surati began to keep herself alone. She often sit in the side of the fond in front of her house, thinking about herself who has no child yet.

“The only the King Prabu Menak Prakosa seem still love me, while my husband Raden Banterang also seem so disappoint on me.” She talk to herself sadly.

“Why every body changes…? “ She talk to her self once again. “Oh God, please help me…” She whisper to herself.

The last synoppsys :

The King knew very well his wife behavior. Once she decided it would not be change anymore.

The King of Klungkung then call his son : “Cokorde Bagus Tantra, come closed to me.  He order his son.

Cokorde Bagus Tantra came closed to his father and sit down near The King Klungkung feet. His seem so sad.
