SANGATTA, EAST BORNEO



Today, September 13, 2009, my hubby got his trips to Sangatta, East Kutai, in East Borneo by Lion Air, from Juanda Surabaya. He was Check in on about 11.00 AM and the Airplane flight was on 12.05 PM. On 14.20 He called me that he has been on East Borneo and has being on the trips to Sangatta. I never know before about Sangatta, yet when I search by google, I find the photo that pick on August 2008, a year ago. I download it, and here it is:

From photo above, we can imagine that Sangatta is the lil city in East Borneo. It is a capital city of East Kutai, a regency of East Borneo province, Indonesia. It has an area of 35,747,50 km² and population 169,564 people (2004). East Kutai is subdivided into 18 subdistricts and there are several coal mining companies has concession around this regency, including Kaltim Prima Coal, one of the largest coal mining company in Indonesia.

Yet, related to East Borneo or East Kalimantan I can explain it from Wikipedia like this:
East Kalimantan (Indonesian: Kalimantan Timur abbrv. Kaltim) is the second largest Indonesian province, located on the Kalimantan region on the east of Borneo island. The resource-rich province has two major cities, Samarinda (the capital and a center for timber product) and Balikpapan (a petroleum center with oil refinery). Ever since Indonesia opened its mineral and natural resources for foreign investment in 1970s, East Kalimantan province has experienced major boost of timber, petroleum and other exotic forest products. The state-owned petroleum company Pertamina has been operating in the area since it took control oil refinery from the Royal Dutch Shell company in 1965. The population is a mixture of people from the Indonesian archipelago with Dayaks and Kutai as indigenous ethnic groups living in rural areas. Other prominent migrant ethnic groups include Javanese, Chinese, Banjarese, Bugis and Malays, who mostly live in coastal areas. This province is the location of the oldest Hindu kingdom in Indonesia, Kutai, the existence of which is attested to by a stone manuscript, or Prasasti, which is now kept in the National Museum in Jakarta. The manuscript is written in the Pallava alphabet and the Sanskrit language. The replica of this manuscript can be seen in the Governor's Office in Samarinda. Inscriptions on seven stone pillars (yupa posts) erected in the fifth century BCE on the command of a local ruler, King Mulavarman, records his victories, his generosity to brahmins, his princely genealogy.

Beside to Sangatta, my hubby also will go to Berau, East Borneo too. Just my wish, he will be back to Surabaya on Tuesday night, September 15, 2009, as his plan, due to he also has been got the ticket for Surabaya at that flight. So we can pass this great and glorious month of Ramadhan together again.
