Ternante is more special than any other cities I've been up to during my #PostGraduationTrip. Most of my family are living here in North Maluku. I was at 8th grade the last time I visited the city, and I had no idea at that time, that Ternate
has a beautiful and majestic nature, foods and the people. In this short list of my Unpublished Photographs of Ternate you'll see some places somewhere in Ternate that probably haven't explored yet.
Sure if you have a time to visit East Indonesia, Ternate and North Maluku should be on your list !
Anyway have you guys ever wonder about my last name "DRAKEL" ? Is that really my real name ? How come ? Because most of people that I met they often asked me like the same exact question over and over again.
Well the answer is yes, Drakel is the real name of mine. I got the name from my grand-grandfather whom was a Portuguese, on that time was lived in Ternate in Portuguese Colonialism era. He married with the local which was known as my grand-grandmother. They lived as a happy family ever after, they had once some kids off course one of them known as my grandfather, and so on and on until my father was born. Drakel its like a tread mark to my father's family. Only a "son" that has a responsibility to inherit Drakel's name to their future children. So I am inherited a "Drakel" from my father and It should be like that on and on.
sorry about the story that kind a lil bit personal tho.
