Crying Out to Heaven

Comments Off on Crying Out to Heaven

Dark Sky

They are celebrating, but I am crying my heart out to Heaven.

Dear Lord, forgive my sins and the sins of others. For those who are crossing the line and commit serious transgressions of Your law, done freely and deliberately with a clear understanding of what they are.

No words can express my heavy heart, my deepest sorrow, my worries of what the future might bring to the next generations. Why do I see looming darkness of evils ?

Melbourne Trams – Very Rough Ride

6 Comments

melbourne-cbd-the-tram

Last Saturday, I traveled from Nicholson st. Coburg to Melbourne CBD by tram. It has been so long since the last time I took a tram and I was excited. As a person who lives in outer suburb, I hardly go to the city, especially by taking a public transport.

The fresh look of the tram and the new Myki card system seem to make everything more up to date following the trend of today’s technology. But soon, I was shock to feel how rough and bumpy the tram run. I was almost sent flying to the floor while walking to find an empty seat and the tram had started to move.  Read more

Pameran Better Homes & Gardens

Kemarin seharian pergi ke pameran Better Homes & Gardens bersama Viv dan Cecilia di Convention & Exhibition Centre, Melbourne CBD (Central Business District). Pertama saya pakai mobil pergi kerumah mereka di Coburg yang termasuk inner suburb kota Melbourne. Dari Coburg terus naik tram ke City (kota). Terpaksa saja naik tram karena susah cari tempat parkir di City dan ongkos parkir juga mahal. Baca lebih lanjut

Kalau Kelelahan Nyetir di Australia

2 Comments

Ingat dulu waktu saya masih kecil, waktu alm. papa nyetir mobil keluar kota, sering beliau itu ngantuk. Kalau sudah terlihat kepala mulai terangguk, mama terus mengeluarkan camilan untuk papa untuk menghilangkan ngantuk. Untung dijaman itu ditahun enam puluhan jalanan di daerah Jawa tengah masih cukup kosong. Mama tak bisa nyetir jadi tak bisa bisa gantian nyetirnya. Walau katanya semakin kenyang orang akan semakin ngantuk, tapi nyetir sembari nyamil memang membuat papa saya tidak ngantuk lagi 🙂

Memanfaatkan Cabe Kering

Cabe Kering

Sampai sekarang di Melbourne sini harga cabe segar masih tetap mahal. Cabe rawit (Bird’s Eye Chilli) akhir-akhir ini agak murah, tapi cabe merah tetap lebih mahal. Yang murah melimpah kalau lagi musimnya adalah jenis Capsicum dan Paprika yang rasanya manis dan tidak pedas sama sekali. Bagi mereka yang tidak suka pedas, kalau memasak hidangan Indonesia yang bercabe seperti misalnya sambal goreng dsb tepat sekali, tapi kalau suka pedas hanya dengan capsicum pasti kurang pas.

Ingat dulu di tahun 1983 waktu pertama tiba di negeri kangguru ini, cabe tidak sebanyak seperti sekarang dan harganya jauh lebih mahal lagi.  Baca seterusnya

Hit From Behind

4 Comments

Last Saturday July 04 about 12.10 pm, I was driving along Springvale rd. (in Melbourne Australia). The area is located around a busy shopping centre. I stopped at the spot before keep clear area on the left lane to wait for the traffic light to turn green. Once it was green I drove slowly forward but had to stop at the spot after keep clear area, as the first car in front was going to turn left to Queen avenue, but had to wait for pedestrians to cross. Suddenly my car was hit from behind…. bang! It was lucky that I did not hit the car in front of me. ( Note: If you look at the photo, my car was  approximately at the same spot as the blue car when the accident happened).

Place of accident

Traffic light intersection of Springvale rd. and Queen avenue. Balmoral avenue is on the left side of keep clear area.

A gemstone cannot be polished without a friction, nor a man without trials – Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Tadi pagi beres-beres almari dan menemukan koleksi batu kepunyaan anak saya dulu waktu masih remaja, sekarang dia sudah dewasa dan tidak tinggal bersama kami lagi. Rupanya dia lupa akan koleksinya ini dan lupa tidak dibawa.

Saya sering baca berita di Indonesia tentang demam batu akik dan rupanya jenis batu setengah mulia ini sekarang sedang di eksploitasi besar-besaran, banyak yang cari dan banyak yang harganya mahal. Untuk kelanjutannya
