Happy Family

On Eid holiday 2011, I booked a flight ticket to Kupang. Kupang is the capital city of East Nusa Tenggara, one of Indonesia’s provinces. I chose it because that was the cheapest getaway ticket in peak season. Besides, I never been there.

Short story, there were 7 people in this trip. Me, my two sisters, my best friend and her boyfriend, her boyfriend’s friend and the wife. After arrived at the different time, we gathered on the third day. We accrossed to Rote Island by fast boat for approximately two hours.

Our guesthouse owner in Nembrala, Mr. Thomas, told that the beach was quite near. On the way there, I saw a group of three size pigs were walking. The big one as the leader, the medium followed and the littles at the back. In my imagination scenario, they were a happy family which had a wonderful day and ready to get back home. Similar to my feeling that time : HAPPY šŸ™‚

Autumn in Melbourne

My favourite season is autumn. As I live in Indonesia which only has two seasons : wet and dry, it is impossible to see the leaves turn into orange. Luckily, I could experienced it when I arrived at Melbourne on April.

On a gloomy day, I went to the city and headed to Federation Square. I walked further until reached Yarra River, the famous river in the heart of Melbourne. I took a break then captured this lovely orange leaves on the ground.

Best time to catch autum in Melbourne : March-May.

My sister likes to duplicate someone’s pose. Everytime we travel and see an interesting statue, she’ll ask me to take a picture of her act. The picture above is one example.

It was taken atĀ Wat Phnom , the tallest religious structure in Phnom Penh. When you come to the east entrance, you’ll see Dwarapalakas statues (guard of the temple) on the main stairway. There will be a small fee US$ 1 .
