Bontang, kalimantan timur Indonesia

Do you know Bontang city? well it’s okay if you don’t know. because i know that bontang is just a little town.

i was born in here. i grew up in here. (now i live in surabaya for Study).

Here it is, some words from wikipedia about Bontang :

Bontang is a city on the eastern coast of the island of Borneo in Indonesia, in the province of East Kalimantan. It occupies an area of 497.57 km2, and the population was 140,787 at the 2010 Census. However, the 2012 Civil Registry listed the population of the city as 175,830.

The etymology of Bontang refers to the town’s traditional status throughout history as a humble village populated mostly by immigrants. ‘Bon’ can refer in Indonesian to ‘receipt’ and ‘tang’ to ‘debt.’ Alternately, the name of the town means group of visitors. A coastal town, Bontang was initially a settlement governed under the Kutai Sultanate based in Tenggarong, a city in East Kalimantan.

In 1972 the government of the Kutai regency recognized Bontang as a district, and in 1984 its status changed to town.

The major development of Bontang took place after two major companies were founded there in the 1970s, PT Badak Liquid Natural Gas and PT Pupuk Kaltim. The former was established in 1974. PT Pupuk Kaltim, a company specializing in the production of ammonia and fertilizer, followed three years later.
