Berastagi (Dutch: Brastagi) is a small town in Karo Regency, North Sumatra that is famous for Mount Sinabung, Mount Sibayak and their fruit market. Most people stop by in this town while on their way to Lake Toba.

After our failed attempt to get a taste of fresh milk from Gundaling Milk Farm, we retreated and decided to have our dinner before checking in to The Hill Hotel & Resort Sibolangit.

Being in Bali for the first time, I had to research what are the must-buy items/products there. After doing some homework, I found out that handmade soaps are one of the most popular must-buy things there. I couldn’t find what’s the best soap brand or famous soap brand to buy though but a friend recommended me KOU Soap at Ubud, Bali.

The first item in our itinerary was to visit Masjid Raya Medan (Masjid Raya Al Mashun). Also known as Great Mosque of Medan, this mosque already has more than 100 years of history.

I actually wanted to go in and have a look but it seems that it would be hard for non-Muslim to enter. Plus, we were running out of time after getting caught in a massive jam from Kualanamu International Airport to Medan. What seemed to be an hour’s trip became 2 hours!
