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 😂.

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

When you want to give up, just remember why you started.

Nowadays, because Pandemic Covid-19, I rarely went to gym or going hash. Because it required many people and we really don’t know the situation and condition. So better be save.

Since May 2020, I started to running again with my dad. And we run about 8.79 – 8.99km.

You know, the first time running, I have this thinking, I won’t running again. Really, all body is hurting and mostly I walk. But then I just think, what’s the purpose for me to running again?

Then the 2nd time, I still want to give up. It even worst. Once I started, I want to go back home immediately.

After the 3rd time, I feel more ease. It feels very light to run.

Then the 4th time, Try to run 3km non stop, and fix my running method. Sometimes, I’m too lazy to lift my foot so it rubs the road. And it dangerous because I can fall.

5th time, try to do the right method, and have a steady breath. And try to run for 4km nonstop.

6th time, this time, as today, I started to use the right method and try to run 4km nonstop and walk 1km then run again 4km. And mostly did it.

This is my best score so far. And because I have stomachache while running so it delayed my time a little. Hopefully next week will be better.

Sometimes, when I’m running, I have 2 kind of thinking.

  1. To give up, and walk instead of running. The first side of my inner thought said, you are tired so just walk, why you should try to tiring yourself.
  2. To continue running, the other side of my inner thought said, you promise yourself that you will run 4km nonstop. So why you started if you give up later?

Even when I wake up in the morning when it’s time to running, I have this thought too, to looking for a reason to not run and sleep again. Haha..

Sometimes, in life we have to choose our own path. And we really don’t know how is the process, and what is the result. And once you started to walk the path you choose, there’s many obstacle in it which make you doubt your decision. And sometimes, you want to give up and change to the other path. But the other path you didn’t choose is gone already.

If you have this thought, just remember, why you started from the first time if you decided to give up before you make it?

So when you want to do something, just remember that we can’t going back to the past. And there’s no people who can not do something, but only there’s people who lazy. I’m sure everyone always start from the very beginning. And as a person, you start to speak and walk from baby, and sometimes you fall. But you didn’t give up. So why don’t learn from baby?

当机会来了,你能不能抓得住,其实就靠平时的积累 —— 肖战

Actually, when the opportunity comes, it depends of how you accumulate the usually you can catch it or not — Xiao Zhan

No matter what you do, some people might see you from different perspective

We live in the world which has more than 7 billion people in this world and we have many different attitude, and many different culture.

Let’s just see the people around us.

Sometimes, when you do something that you think it is good, but not all people see what you do as a good things. Even some people think contrary from what we are thinking.

For example, When a big boss that has already succeed and his wealthy able to live until 7 generations, he started to stop working. He thought that it’s time to take care his parents that already senior and give them best service as a child. But some people might think different. There’s some people who think that his company bankrupted, or he is arrogant, just because he has enough money so he won’t continue to work and have fun instead.

Another example, there’s a couple husband and wife, they live happily. And has 2 children. The husband has a steady work and the wife is a good housewife and mother. Many people envy them because the husband really love their family. Until one time, wife’s friend come and hangout with the wife, and one of them said, do you not afraid if your husband got an affair? Because he’s too lovely to you. And then the wife started to have a doubt, and everytime the husband come back from work, she always interogatted him about what is he doing the entire day. At first, the husband think that the wife only wants to pay attention to his life. But becaue this thing done by many times, he started to feel disturbed and they started to argue.

This is what make some people, have a sudden change in their life. I think this is logic, when people said something about you and you are influenced by them, then your life will be change 100%.

The most important thing is how we behave to some people’s said. People can said anything about us, but it’s up to us how to respond to their said.

This is where we are tested, we want to be ourselves, or want to be other’s selves. If we insist to be ourselves, then what other said to us is just something that passing by. But if we listen to what other said and change ourselves, then we become other’s selves, because what we become is influenced by others and not because we are willing too. And if those people wants you to be broken, then they are succeed.

As a person, we have to be able to believe in ourselves. If what we do is right, then we don’t have to hear what other people said. This is our life, and not other. Eventough we can’t prohibit other’s to talk but we can ignore them.

Criticism VS Gossip

Criticism: The expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes; The analysis and judgment of the merits and faults of a literary or artistic work.

Gossip: a mass medium or rumor, especially about the personal or private affairs of others; the act is also known as dishing or tattling.

For Criticism, if we think it is right and can be benefit to our life, we can use the criticize to improve ourselves to become a better person. But Gossip is just rumor and it might not entirely true. So, we are better to not trust any Gossip or Rumor.

So, no matter what people said, it’s still up to you wants to be yourself, or wants to be other’s selves. Still it’s us who make decision and not others. And the result is based on what we choose. So don’t blame others, when you choose to follow others, because you have a chance to not follow them. And it’s hard, really, me myself also realize this that it’s hard to not follow others, because sometimes our action is based on what other’s see us. But slowly, we will realize this and think before act. Actually, it doesn’t matter, even when others will see us as dumb, or stupid, because it’s our own life. Why should other’s opinion matter? As long as we work hard to achieve what we want to achieve, and always do the right thing, we will be a better person. And sure, we will become happier than before.

Mount Merapi Eruption June 21, 2020 # Central Java – Indonesia

Today, after we go morning walk, when we arrive at home, there’s a news that Mount Merapi has erupted.

Mount MerapiGunung Merapi (Fire Mountain in Indonesian and Javanese), is an active stratovolcano located on the border between Central Java and Special Region of Yogyakarta provinces, Indonesia. It is the most active volcano in Indonesia and has erupted regularly since 1548. It is located approximately 28 kilometres (17 mi) north of Yogyakarta city which has a population of 2.4 million, and thousands of people live on the flanks of the volcano, with villages as high as 1,700 metres (5,600 ft) above sea level.

Smoke can often be seen emerging from the mountaintop, and several eruptions have caused fatalities. Pyroclastic flow from a large explosion killed 27 people on 22 November 1994, mostly in the town of Muntilan, west of the volcano. Another large eruption occurred in 2006, shortly before the Yogyakarta earthquake. In light of the hazards that Merapi poses to populated areas, it has been designated as one of the Decade Volcanoes.

It’s been a long time to have an ash rain, and I didn’t tought this time there’s an ash rain in Muntilan. We just got there, and now we will go there again to eat lunch.

When we arrive there, actually the ash rain has been stop, or maybe very thin, because my car has ash in it’s whole body. At first we can’t see it but because my car is parking, and when we finish eating, you can see that it’s quiet a lot.
