Story : A Short Trip to Bromo

Well, it’s been a while since the last post, but still…Hello readers!

Tonight I would like to write about my trip to Bromo. Well, though it’s already 6 months ago but I still wanna share my experience.

What a great experience. That’s what I said.

In the end of my research, I decided to join my friends Abi, Jatu, and Mira to go to Bromo. I already said that I run out of money, but Abi lend me some money and he said “We don’t know whether there’s time for us to have a trip to Bromo, because we almost graduate.” I thought he’s right, so I joined him.

Places I Wanna Go ; Part 5

Hello readers πŸ™‚

5 days ago, I watched an Indonesian movie titled “5cm”. The movie tells about a friendship of 4 boys and a girl and they decided to hike to the peak of the highest peak in Java called Mahameru at Mount Semeru, East Java, Indonesia.

In that movie, we can see some beautiful scenery from the hiking track of Mount Semeru including Ranu Pane and Ranu Kumbolo. Both of them are lakes, beautiful lakes at the slope of Mount Semeru. And you can find “Oro-oro Ombo”, it such a grassland with a beautiful scenery too…

But if you wanna come there, you have to be careful. Like other mountains in Java, there are so many mystical things. If you walk toward the last post of hiking track, called “Arcopodo”, you have to be silent, just praying, don’t joke around or else, you’ll face bad things. That’s what’s people around Semeru’s said.

You can go to Semeru or Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park from Malang, East Java, and then you can look for public transportation to Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park πŸ™‚

You can check some pics below…

Places I Wanna Go ; Part 4

So, this is my 4th review about awesome places with awesome scenery.

4 months ago, I lived at a village, in the slopes between Merbabu and Merapi Mountains, Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. It called Wonolelo village. I lived at that village for 1 and a half month for my college task.

At Wonolelo, in the morning, you can see a beautiful scenery of Merbabu and Merapi Mountains. You can see the peak of both mountains clearly. You rarely can see those peak above 10 a.m because those might be covered by clouds. The people mostly work as farmer. They’re horticulture’s farmer.Β  You’re not only pampered by the mountain’s view but also the fields. Very beautiful!

I Found My Passion : Verti-Culture and Gardening

Yesterday, I watched Korean drama “Love Rain” and I love the set place of this drama. YoonA as Ha Na who’s a gardener and works at resort’s garden rises up my old possession as a gardener. Yeah, since few years ago, I wanna be gardener and study about it but I ended up study about Agriculture. But that’s related, right? And now, I lookedΒ  for an extension study about tropical garden. I found an extension program for gardening at College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources in University of Hawaii. But, how to get there, guys? I don’t have much money 😦

Then I looked for a garden center in my city, but I can’t found it, damn!

If I can found it, I wanna work and study in that garden, without payment, it’s fine because I really really want to study about it.

I love to see a beautiful landscape and I love to see the flowers which are blooming and make some beautiful color. How refreshing πŸ™‚ Then I attended a seminar, agriculture seminar, they discussed about verti-culture planting (Verti-culture planting system is a system of planting in the pot arranged/assembled horizontal and vertical or stratified. This is the way to overcome the problem where the planting area is limited. The kind of plants that could be plant in here are vegetables and flowers) actually, it made me interested to do verticulture in my own house. Continue reading

Currently Watching : Arang and The Magistrate

Well, I’m back, after more than 4 months I left this blog, so sorry πŸ™‚

Now, I’m writing a review about a drama, Korean drama titled Arang and The Magistrate. I knew this drama from my friend and the first time I watched it, it’s been the 4th episode. This drama interested me because I already watched a horror movie titled “Arang” and I knew that Arang was a folktale from Korea.

Honestly, I interested to Lee Joon Ki. He has been my idol since I was in high school. So handsome >.<

After watch it, it more interesting, you know. This drama contains a comedy, romantic, mistery, and horror story. Though I don’t really like Joseon-setting-drama, but this drama feels different. I can’t wait to watch the next episodes when I’ve finished “this week” episode, that’s what I felt.

This drama tells about a virgin ghost, named Arang (Shi Minh Ah). She’s amnesia and couldn’t remember her life before her death, that’s so funny πŸ˜€ And then she asked help from Kim Eun Oh (Lee Joon Ki) to find the truth behind her death. Eun Oh, who wants to find her mother in Miryang, found a connection between her mother and Arang’s death, and then he agreed to help Arang. And then, the story’s getting more interesting because Eun Oh found himself falls in love with Arang πŸ˜€

Tomcat Phenomenon in Indonesia ; Paederus sp.

Hello readers, I’m back with my new review about Paederus sp. This beetle has made a big phenomenon in Indonesia especially in Surabaya City as Tomcat. Why? Because those insects have poisoned some people in an apartment. Those people suffered from dermatitis because of them. In 2005, an outbreak in Malaysia has reported.

That’s a beetle called Rove Beetle (Coleoptera; Staphylinidae). Paederus sp. has known by its poison. A potent vesicant contained in their haemolymph which can produce a skin irritation called dermatitis. This beetle can be distinguished from its short elytra (a hardened forewing of insects) from other Coleoptera beetles. It has a black caput, both of thorax and abdomen have an orange color.

Originally, this beetle is a biological control for some pests, but it can be dangerous for human who has contacted directly with this beetle. If you check inside Google with keyword “Paederus outbreak”, you can find many articles or journals which explain about it. And most of them happened inside building. An expert said that this beetle is nocturnal insect and attracted by the light so that it came to the apartment.

What you have to do when this beetle stands on your skin?

Don’t you dare to touch it, better you blow it away from your skin. Because it can secrete its poison when this beetle feels a danger situation.

Music Review : KPop Idols and Their Delusional Fans

Hello readers,

welcome to my blog, again πŸ˜€
Now, I’m going to write about Kpop and their fans. Why? Because Kpop is booming around the world, right now.

Firstly,I tell you, this is just my opinion, so, if you’re not agree with it, that’s your own problem πŸ˜€

What’sΒ  the reason why I write this review?

Based on my analysis, so many illogical fans have been appeared and made a bad situation.

They have been worshiping their idols like a God. In a case, Jessica’s (Girls Generation) graffiti has ruined by unknown people in Australia. I got this news from Allkpop and I read the comments below that article. So many Girls Generation’s fans bashed and cursed the destroyer. They thought it caused by anti-fans and started blaming other fandom (It is a term forΒ  fans of a certain idol). Well, hellooo…What’s the big deal? That’s just a graffiti. That’s a normal thing that a graffiti changed regularly. In my country, a graffiti doesn’t last for less than a month, and that’s very normal. That’s not a bible or Qur-an or a statue of Jesus which will make a big controversy if there’s a person who dare to ruin it. Why do they have to overreact like that?? Continue reading
