Future family member

My wife is currently pregnant (one month) and it's her first pregnancy :yes:
I don't know how to express my feeling, I'm just happy :cheers:

Can't wait to see my kid crawling on the floor, calling me Papa, Romo, Bopo or any other name πŸ˜€


Opinel Garden Number 8

10 August 2010 03:08:57 WIB, under category Uncategorized

I'm a fan of knives and any other sharp blades, but I prefer small knives instead of swords, machetes or bowie knives. Recently I bought a new knife, it's Opinel (garden series) number 8. Opinel is known as cheap but great knife, originally from France.

Here is the picture, but in low quality πŸ˜€

Opinel number 8 (blade length is 8 cm) is rather too big for me, I think I should have number 6 or 7. Next time I will post more pictures of this knife, with better image quality :up:


Juan The Turtle

31 July 2010 16:07:32 WIB, under category Uncategorized


This is Juan, my 6-7 years old turtle. There was a couple of turtle, another one named Jose. Jose was brought by my friend and now has become very big, in my friend's house.

Juan is a dwarf turtle. In its age, it should be bigger that it is now. But I'm happy with this fact because I don't need any larger aquarium. Juan looked dirty in the photo above, it was a moment before I clean up his carapace using teeth brush.

Juan eats "Makura" every day. Makura is special food for turtle, it's an abbreviation of "makanan kura-kura" or food for turtles. Funny but memorable name πŸ˜€

Update: Juan's picture, 2 years ago.


Best Instant Noodle

09 July 2010 14:07:12 WIB, under category Uncategorized

This is Indomie, best instant noodle in the world. Those who leave Indonesia for their study or working abroad, will mostly miss this instant noodle.

I also heard that this instant noodle were produced outside Indonesia, to fulfill demand from some countries where many Indonesian live. They said, the taste are localized so they still miss Indonesia's Indomie.

I had a pleasure to write all about instant noodles, called Ramen Rider. But it's currently discontinued.


Wild Fruit On The Roadside

26 June 2010 03:59:57 WIB, under category Daily

It was early morning and I was walking from the town into my house, it’s about 30 minutes walking distance. In the middle of the trip and after the sunrise, I saw this fruit on the roadside.

Wild fruit and its leaves

I didn’t know what fruit is that. It looked delicious, remind me of the wild marquisa I found on the riverside some years ago –when I was a child. Before I picked the fruit to try how is the taste, I took some pictures of that fruit.

Later, I peeled that strange fruit carefully and found a disgusting form of the pulp. Without trying its taste, I knew that no way this fruit will be delicious.

disgusting pulp

But I couldn’t resist to try it, so I licked its black pulp and there’s almost no taste. Β Just cold and tasteless so I threw it away and continue my walk.

Soft fur on its rind

I use Panoramio to publish those images, if you wonder where did I get that fruit, you can click on the image(s) above and there is a map (Google Maps) that show you where the pictures were taken.

Opera Mini In The Daily Life

07 April 2009 16:04:13 WIB, under category Uncategorized

I must admit that I can't get away from internet. Thus I always find any way to put me on the Net. And Opera Mini help me a lot.

I've tried several mobile browsers but none of them fit my needs. I love its data compression, zoom and panning feature, enable and disable image easily, nice interface and the greatest bless is Link Opera. It safes my life many times!

Now I'm hoping that Opera Mini will be bundled with Fingertouch and Tabbed browsing :up:


My Daily Knives

23 March 2009 12:03:30 WIB, under category Uncategorized

I am a knives lover. Since I was a young boy, I played with knife. Nabbing banana trees, cut down the bushes and other dangerous things (lol)

Nowadays, I always bring knives everywhere. Here are some of them:

Today I bring Victorinox Stay Glow (the green one) and the black flashlight with me. Stored safely in my bag :up:
