Chinese lyrics from TT Player / QQ Music
Pinyin by Anna Wong
All song lyrics Translations (English and Indonesia) by Anna Wong

If you can back to the past, which time you want to go back?

TIme is moving, and didn’t stop in some era. And when you realize it, maybe you are already more than 50 years old. We really didn’t feel it but it’s the reality.

Sometimes, when you have nothing to do, you will think, if that time, I didn’t choose this path, what will happens to my life? I am sure this must be appear in your mind.

If you given a chance to go back to the past, in what time you wish to go back?

I think, if I have a chance to go back to the past, I choose to go back when I am 16-17 years old. When I’m in Senior High School.

That time, I don’t have enough confident and I am not that “famous”. And I choose IT for my undergraduate major. I want to change it to Medicine. And become General Surgeon and doing social work.

Altough I hate Biology that time, altough I didn’t like chemistry, but if I have a change, I really wants to help people in medicine field.

And I will try to apply international scholarship, between China and Korean. I know it will be hard because that time, I’m not that clever and confident.

For Social Work, I want to challenge my self in that time. Can I do it? For a girl who didn’t have confident back then, this is a big challenge. Even speaking in front of people, make me freeze.

18 years old of me, is when I’m starting to develop my interest and build my confidence. So I want to go back before it, to make difference.

I know that if I choose different path from what I choose now, the future will be different. But still, we really don’t know what’s gonna happen if we choose different path. Will it be better, or it will be worst.

And once again, it’s impossible to go back to the past. This questions is just if. Please don’t make it to your mind and heart deeply. Life must go on, and we only able to move forward. We don’t know what’s gonna happen tomorrow, even we don’t know what’s gonna happen in the next second. Let’s do the best for now.

PJJP :: Kopeng # Central Java – Indonesia

Today is another day for outing, morning walk together. And the destination is Kopeng.

The walk is about 5km with beautiful scenery.

Indonesia is a tropic country and the weather usually 20-30 degree celcius. But some place because located in high place, sometimes the weather could be under 20 degree celcius. And Kopeng, a village near Salatiga is one of them. When we arrive in there at 06:30, it has 17 degree celcius with wind. And it’s really cold.

When we arrive there, I saw this 2 cute little cat running anywhere and play.

Then we started to walk. The road is easy with enough up and down hill And beautiful scenery.

this is actually going up hill path, but don’t know after I took the picture, it looks like a tunnel.

We also passed by Flower and Plant Shop, which each shop designated like a flower garden. Surely those who love flower and plant will love in here and buy some plant.

Then we arrive at Kopeng Tourism Spot, and my mom buy some vegetables to cooking at home. A lot of people in my city like to go to Kopeng to buy some vegetables or fruits. While shopping, we can also enjoy the fresh air and the scenery.

After arrive at the car parking, and eat some snack and drink, the leader offer us to go to a beautiful place which is not far from there. We joint the passenger so we don’t need many car to go there and keep the rest in here.

It took abouf 10-15 minutes to go there but the road is very narrow, only enough for 1 car and located higher than before so you have to use a good car and skillful driver.

Panorama Technic

We arrive at Bukit Harapan Cuntel. I have changed my shoes to sandals because I’m afraid if my shoes are dirty so the car will be dirty too. And now, we need to climb a little in the sand and my sandal is dirty too 😜

In Bukit Harapan Cuntel, we can see 5 mountains: Mount Sumbing, Mount Sindoro, Mount Andong, Mount Telomoyo, and Mount Gajah Mungkur.

The scenery is very beautiful. I used panorama to take the picture.

Then we plan to go back to the car parking. But don’t know why suddenly, we are arrived at Merbabu Pass, a basecamp for climbing Mount Merbabu via Wekas.

Becareful if you go there, the road is narrow and uphill, with about 30-45 degrees. You should have a perfect car and skillfull driver.

Mount Merbabu is a dormant stratovolcano in Central Java province on the Indonesian island of Java. The name Merbabu could be loosely translated as ‘Mountain of Ash‘ from the Javanese combined words; Meru means “mountain” and awu or abu means “ash“. Elevation: 3.145m.

source: Wikipedia

We still need to walk uphill to arrive at Merbabu Pass. Again, wrong choice to change to Sandals haha..

Then we go back to the car parking Kopeng, and it turns out we arrive at Kaponan. Which means, we go along way around.

Actually I should have arrive at home at 09:00 but now I arrive at home at 12:00 😂.

No More Sticker Visa for South Korea Visa

Starting July 01, 2020, South Korea Visa will stop using sticker visa. According KVAC (Korea Visa Application Center) in Jakarta, Indonesia, they will change sticker visa to visa grant notice which can be downloaded on Visa portal website and print it.

For more information, please visit KVAC website

Picture Source: KVAC_ID instagram

To see the grant notice, use the same method when you check the application status.

The requirement document is the same as before. You can start to apply for single-entry visa 3 months before departure date. But my suggestions is, apply 1.5-2 months before is better. Usually, some people need longer time to approve (usual time is 5 business day).

After you got the notice, print and bring the notice together with your passport. When you arrive at South Korea, the immigration will check both of them.

Usually, people like to collect visa or stamp of other countries. And the more you have them in your passport, the more you like it. But it’s getting lesser and lesser, South Korea without sticker visa and no stamp when you travel in there.

Dragon Boat Festival 端午节 2020

The Dragon Boat Festival 端午节 is a traditional holiday originating in China, occurring near the summer solstice. The festival now occurs on the 5th day of the 5th month of the traditional Chinese calendar, which is the source of the festival’s alternative name, the Double Fifth Festival. The Chinese calendar is lunisolar, so the date of the festival varies from year to year. In 2020, it falls at June 25.

credit: wikipedia, china daily

In Indonesian, the festival is known as “Peh Cun“, which is derived from Hokkien (扒船; pê-chûn).

It is one of the oldest festivals, not only in China but also throughout the world, with a history of more than 2,000 years. In 2006, the traditional festival was listed as part of China’s national intangible cultural heritage. In 2008, it was recognized as a public holiday in the Chinese mainland.

The Dragon Boat Festival commemorates the death of Qu Yuan, a Chu state official and poet who lived during the Warring States Period (475-221 BC) before the reunification of China under the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC). He was exiled after opposing his king’s decision to ally with the neighboring state of Qin, and when Chu was finally conquered by Qin, he committed suicide by drowning in the Miluo River on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month.

The Chu people, who admired Qu Yuan for his loyalty and integrity, threw rice dumplings into the river to feed the fish so they would not eat the body of their poet hero. People then started dragon boat racing to scare off the fish.

Since then, the fifth day of the fifth month on the lunar calendar is celebrated as the Dragon Boat Festival. The following are some customs for the festival.

Dragon boat racing

At the center of the festival are the dragon boat races. Competing teams drive their colorful dragon boats forward to the rhythm of the beating drums. These exciting races were inspired by the villagers’ valiant attempts to rescue Qu Yuan from the Miluo River. This tradition has remained unbroken for centuries.

Eating zongzi 粽子

A very popular dish during the Dragon Boat Festival is zongzi 粽子. This tasty dish consists of rice dumplings with meat, peanuts, egg yolks or other fillings wrapped in reed leaves. The tradition of zongzi is meant to remind us of village fishermen scattering rice across the water of the Miluo River in order to appease the river dragons and fish so that they would not devour Qu Yuan.

Balancing eggs

It is said that you will be lucky in the coming year if you can balance an egg upright during the Dragon Boat Festival. The egg balancing competition will be held at noon in many places.

Have you eat rice dumpling / zongzi 粽子 and balanced the egg today?

Happy Dragon Boat Festival for everyone, with safety and healthy always! 祝大家端午安康!

Yes, I make the egg balancing today. Excatly at 12:00 West Indonesia time. And it last until don’t know, because until 13:00 it still standing.

Zongzi 粽子 has two kind of taste, sweet and salty. The sweet one has nothing inside, and you have to eat it using syrup or honey. The salty one has meat inside.

咸粽子,里面有猪肉 Salty Dumpling with Pork Meat inside
甜粽子,加甜酱 Sweet dumpling with Syrup Sauce
