Became Fashionable with Henna

Henna, according to wiki is a flowering plant, the sole species in the genus Lawsonia in the family Lythraceae. The word "henna" comes from Arabic name for Lawsonia inermis, pronounced "hinna". In North India, Pakistan and bangladesh it is known as "mehndi".

Natural henna is derived from leaves of the lawsonia inermis plant and is used for making temporary tattoos. The colouring that comes from natural henna is harmless in all aspects and does not last for a much longer period of time.

Henna paste

Henna has many traditional and commercial uses, the most common being as a dye for hair, skin and fingernails. I did dye my hair and fingernails with it sometime. Just now I used it as a body art because I have this henna paste. This henna paste is a gift and just found the right moment to use it for Eid occasion.

In India, typically quite intricate and predominantly applied to brides before wedding ceremonies. In Arabic and Persian speaking countries such as Morocco, and some other countries in central Asia, it is done for any special occasion. It is done during the seventh month of pregnancy, after having the baby, weddings, engagements, family get-togethers, as well as many other reasons to simply celebrate an event. (wiki)

For me.. I did it just for fashion :p

Unfinish yet.. its still wet.. Wait till it completely dry

Actually I did it not in purpose. That day, I was very busy cooking and preparing for the Eid (for next day) ... yeah I am cookin..! nyaahaha.. :p
Then I just thought to try the henna paste. Looks like pretty easy as it has plastic cone so what I need just to use it like a pencil. But it was not that simple. I got blocking-moment lol. I did not know what to draw, what motif.. flower, leaf, dots.. or what.. But then I did it.. Abstract plants and messy here and there. Just look closer through the picture haha..

It looks like this.. I think it looks better when it still wet lol

I think, I should make it one time each sides till it completely dry. Sometime I forgot if its still wet and touched or did something then mess it lol. Anyway.. I like this henna body art. I could make it again sometime.. :p

On and Off Feelings Toward Langkawi Island

About time!

Just now I feel wanted to share my experiences about my traveling abroad.. and I chose to write about Langkawi Island as the start even tho its not the first destination of my traveling abroad coz that would be Kuala Lumpur. As I started my journey from Bandung - my home city - so Kuala Lumpur is the only way out abroad from Bandung.

Arming myself with only my camera phone, I am ready!
Will just mix the pictures I took during my holiday. Since I didn't take much pictures so I will take some from my previous trip hehe..

Sunset Pantai Cenang (Cenang Beach) Langkawi, Malaysia (pic taken in 2007)

The reason I am writing about Langkawi now coz I just came back from there not long time ago. Actually I have been to Langkawi few times. Everytime I went to Malaysia, would spend time in Langkawi for few days or so.. just because Hani likes it there. But the last time was the longest time I stayed in Langkawi.. and that made me sick and bored. Actually I like Langkawi.. first because its beach then foods..

Different color effect from my mobile camera lol strange..
(pic taken in 2007)

I like beach! Not for laying down for sunbath.. No.. I don't need sunbath coz I already have my tanned skin :p and no I didn't swim either last time.. lol. Actually I like to swim on the sea but not alone.. Hani doesn't really fancy on swimming. I don't mind swimming in the pool alone like I used to do that bcoz no friends that really likes to go swimming here.. even tho that would be more fun if I have company.

After sunset. See what I meant? Its blue now which I like :p Crazy camera
(pic taken in 2007)

So my favourite things to do there was.. walking along the beach - yeah its a long sandy beach of Cenang Beach (Pantai Cenang) - and sometime stopped to collect some seashell. Even tho.. I didn't spend too much time on the beach coz the weather were too hot, sweating alot.. well its always hot in Langkawi.. felt like the sun burned inside me too. So just walked on the beach around sunset then had dinner at the restaurant near by the beach. After that would have a little walk before heading back to the hotel.

Langkawi is an island with very few places to spend a night drinkin' and dancin' even tho theres more bars opened now.. But since I don't drink and don't like bars so I just stayed in room sleeping.. Actually I would love to spend more time on the beach in the evening even just sit but didn't have company and I was too afraid to sit alone :-/ while Hani was prefer with friends.. So since my schedules just sleep and dining out then sleep for almost.. a month?! That made Langkawi really turn me off. I always feel wanted to excape from there. If I could scream... Borrrrrrriiiiiiiiing to the death! Langkawi really made me sick! I wanna go home!

But then.. WAIT!
When I met its foods there.. Hmmm seafoods really works to change my mind :p I wanted to stay.. Fresh fishes you can choose what you like it to be cooked, grill, steam, fried or fresh.. O_o naaah lol I am not into shushi stuff hehe.. So our favorite are steam and grill.. yummmy! But they don't have sauce or chilli that really match with the grill fish.. Well not what I like.. In Indo.. they serve grill fish with "sambal" (chilli something) or kechup mixed with fresh green chillis, onion, garlic, lemon etc.. Much better! Well I will tell more about Langkawi cuisine later.

Gotta clean your dirty clothes at Langkawi Laundry. No ironing :p

Okay now..
I have to admit.. I ate chocolate almost everyday. Don't blame me! chocolate is everywhere there. There is Duty Free shops nearby. Lots of chocolate variety you can choose. From Belgian, Swiss to local. But I stick on Australia Cadburry Dairy Milk Cashew, 250g for RM 8 at our fav shop, other shop is RM 8.50 even at Duty-Free shop in Kuah lol and Tobleron White Chocoalate Swiss, its white so creamy :p So who can say No :p I brought 9 Tobleron and 3 Cadburry - thanks Han to get it for me - to share it with friends and family at home even tho mostly I was the one who ate it more lol.

The Zon Duty-Free Shopping Complex in Underwater World Langkawi
(recent pic, 2008 lol)

Lots of shops and stalls lined on both sides of Pantai Cenang Road which sell mostly souvenirs in the form of fashion accessories, beads, handicrafts and merchandise also many convenience stores. Also the Zon Duty-Free Shopping Complex in Underwater World Langkawi.

But Night Market (Pasar Malam) is my favourite place to visit. Actually there is Daily Tourist Night Market in Cenang too just diagonally opposite Underwater World and directly opposite Papadam Ria Indian Cuisine Restaurant. Night market in Kedawang is my fav coz its the nearest one from the hotel and been there before :) Always looking for 'sate' lol I like 'sate'.. but not only that I also got chicken grilled and eat it while browsing the stalls so no bargaining lol..

So will I come back to Langkawi Island next time?... Only God Knows

All About Strawberry - Bandung

A welcome sign from "All About Strawberry"

"Think rest and fresh" ... That is what the owner of "All-about-strawberry" restaurant wants for his customers to think when they arrived there. Located on Jl. Cihanjuang Km 2,5 No 17 Cimahi Bandung (you can get there through Cimahi or Ledeng), this place is not too bad for fun games and family gathering. Lets face it, there isn't anywhere decent in big city these days to take children out to be closer to the natures and get a different atmosphere. "Strawberry Picking" restaurant concept seems very popular these days which is a good idea and business.

So here, where my sister, her family (2 kids and hubby) and I, went for the weekend. First time for us. We didn't even know where was the location for sure. Due from my sis-hubby's brother unclear info about the location, we just gambled to find the area. Lucky we found it when saw crowd car and strawberry sign (later when drove home we found several more strawberry farms, so prolly it wasn't the one my sis-hubby's bro told lol).

The entry ticket - my sis hold it for me to take the pic of it. Not focused, abit blurry lol

Before we walked into the place, 2 girls came to approach us and gave us the entry ticket for @Rp.5,000,- ($0.55 USD per person). Its included a voucher for a glass of cold strawberry juice. Nice welcome drink :) But we didn't use it yet, we wanted to save the drinks for the last because we didn't thirsty yet.

The entry gate to get in strawberry farm area - My sis and her older son were checking on it.

So we directly walked to the strawberry farm which is on the back area and saw the sign "Petik strawberry habis" which means.. the season of strawberry picking has over :( only unripe strawberry is left and ready to be picked. We waited too long to go pick them because it was still school holiday season and so many family came there.

The season of strawberry picking has over :( only unripe strawberry is left.

My nephew (older one) was a little disappointed, he loves strawberry alot. And his mom didn't want to buy the strawberry that already packed. Its too expensive she said lol. Well yeah it is.. The price for one pack is Rp.30,000,- and Rp.20,000,- (about $3.28 - $2.18 USD) depend on the size and ripest. And what made me disappointed was.. not able to see the excitement of my nephews when harvest the strawberry by their own. And the point we went there not just bought strawberry but the moment when picking a strawberry fresh from the field and saw my nephews getting busy to do it.. But no strawberry picking today!

Oh well.. Maybe next time kids :)

The strawberry field and the strawberry they sold there.. (aw the picture appeared to small here but click on it to enlarge)

Actually the strawberry field at All-about-strawberry is not so big. No wonder not much strawberry left on the field if about 3000 or 5000 a day customers came there.. But it is not the only things you can do at All-about-strawberry. There are some attractions, kid's outbound such as this big-balloon (Pic display. I dunno what its named lol) and my nephews loved it. Moreover for the younger. He couldn't have this moment often :p (*blames it to his mom). They jumped around and got sweat. Great their mom have prepared everything for them.. changed their clothes and cleaned and sprayed perfume as soon as we got inside the car to be back home :p (otay she is a good mom).

This is the balloon I said.. Yeah that is my younger nephew :p exhausted but he wasn't finished yet lol. The older just showed his legs :p

Tree-house or Rumah pohon in my language :p

This is another game you can find there.. They called it Tree-house, entry ticket Rp.15.000,- ($1.64 USD) but my nephews not going there lol prolly they knew its too expensive for that (or their parents?) :p anyway no kids around there either. Actually this tree-house is kinda cool but why need to pay if you can find another free games there. Yeah the balloon one is free.. and some other games but I didn't check on it. I was just busy taking pictures lol.

Kid's flying fox (got this pic online lol)

Just another kid's adventure games; flying fox, even its not so high and takes about 10 seconds to touch the ground. But well its kid's lol.. Also spider web, wall climbing, walking on the line..

CX Outlet

Oh there is also a factory outlet. After did my search on internet I found the name of the factory outlet, Clothing and X’cessories Outlet (CX Outlet). Typical factory outlet in Bandung :) clothes and accessories (like its name) but again.. I found it on internet websites that the owner of the place best known as a businessmen who made some famous factory outlet in Bandung. Anyway.. I didn't buy anything there lol. And of course there is restaurant there.. but we didn't eat there lol. Not feeling wanted to and no one hungry yet. Actually we didn't really spend so much money there.. Just 5 entry tickets cost only @Rp.5,000,-. For that we got 5 welcome drinks of nice cold strawberry juices, kids having fun, I took several pics, and enjoyed the atmosphere :p worthy eh..

Actually there are several strawberry-picking places around Bandung (suburbs). Even the strawberry farm has existed for long time ago tho. Well done to Wayside whoever you are for making the effort and trying your hardest to keep Strawberry Farm alive but I guess its just all about money.. money.. money.. on this rich mans paradise.

Who knows we will come back again next time.. maybe another strawberry farm.. :)

Wild Horse on the River Cross-Stitch Pattern

Pheew >_< finally I have finished making this cross stitch project. It took me about one month and few days to finish it. I started to make it at the same day I bought its cross stitch kit and almost everyday I worked on it except to do chores or was out. Yeah I was abit in rush to finish it because I wanted it done faster before my trip (yes I am going somewhere.. )

Wild Horse on the River Cross-Stitch Pattern

But this is worthy.. I feel so happy and great after I finished it and stare at the pattern. It looks so beautiful and nice also looks so natural even it just made of flosses. I imagine what if it is in a beautiful carving frame and hang on the wall.. I believe it would be looked so great. I didn't have it in a frame because I made this cross stitch not for myself but for a friend who ordered it. So actually I have got some advantage to make this project which are... first, because cross stitch is my hobby so I really enjoyed to work on it and second, I would get paid for this :p Doesn't it great? First time I will get paid for making cross stitch. Usually I made cross stitch just for myself for the decoration at home, a gift for friends and family, or helping them to make it :) My father loves landscape patterns while my mom loved landscape and flowers, etc and myself.. I love everything and make it :p

Unfinished project

Actually, this project supposed to be made by my friend and me, because we make this for our business too. But since my friend was busy and out of town, so I started it first and finished it alone before my friend returned (honestly I am happy to finish it alone.. Dunno why.. But I sometime couldn't trust others to do stuff like this lol shhhhh..)

I don't mind for more cross stitch projects :p

Wanna buy it? Yes - No

Going Uphill to Mt. Tangkuban Perahu

Mount Tangkuban Perahu is one of tourist favorite spots when visit Bandung. This time I had a visitor, a friend from Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) who wanted to go for volcano activity. A fun crazy gurl aka "idoleyes" :p
Well no problem.. I was ready for the action! lol.
But first we had to think how to get to Tangkuban Perahu, whether to call a rental car or just get taxi. Later after few thinking and consideration we ended up to rent an "angkot" (Angkutan Kota - a public transport in Bandung) which arranged by another friend (too bad she couldn't join us that time, coz not feeling well). Thought that would be cheaper compare to other transports. The fare agreement with the driver was Rp.150.000,- back and forth (after all we paid Rp.50.000,- more lol) - oh it was exclude the entry fee.

This is the kind of angkot we had to Tangkuban Perahu (but not that one) - just driver and his friend, my friend and I :p

Well even the car seat wasn't so comfortable and no air conditioner but it was okay lol we still enjoyed the scenery.. vegetables and flowers farm and the weather was nice too. Because it was Sunday (also school holidays) so the traffic was quite crowd and the driver took a shortcut road. I wasn't so sure whether it was faster or just took longer to reach Tangkuban Perahu lol. I didn't really care about it coz I was busy talking and enjoying the view with my friend.

Domas Crater - with a small souvenir stall at the entrance to the crater. The bottle you can see on the pic are sulfur mud which are believed a good medicine for rheumatism, skin complaints or treatments.

Short story, we arrived at the volcano area, we decided - well I did :p - to start the journey from "Domas Crater" (Kawah Domas) which is one of the craters. We took the short way to get there which is not too far from the road.. This is the most easily accessible to get to Domas crater. I asked the angkot driver to wait us at the car park uphill where the main crater, "Queen Crater" (Kawah Ratu) could be seen.
Some vender tried to sell their stuff to us with a high price :) they thought I was a tourist too.. so I had to say.. "Nope I am a local" .. then spoke Sundanese :p
One vender wanted to sell a stone as big as chicken egg for Rp.250.000 ... O_o aw! That is too much for that stone.. So I just tried to bargain for Rp.40.000 hehe.. and then he said.. okay for 100 then 50 etc.. meanwhile we kept walking away :p Idoleyes wasn't so interested to buy it tho.

The first thing to strike you on the approach to the active crater is the stench of sulfur. Then you will see boiling hot water, bubbling mud and hissing sulfur vapor. Below is a short video of Domas crater..

Can you hear it hissing? O_O

Near the entrance, there is a stall selling snacks and drinks. There you can buy eggs so that you can put them into the boiling water. Need about 10 minutes until they are cooked. So imagine the water is hot :p But you will still able to soak your feet in the hot spring which is not too hot to relax you a bit. But I didn't do it there lol too many feet in that small pond :p

Closer - Boiling eggs in hot geyser till it cooked.

Ready for some hiking? :p
The way down from Kawah Ratu to Kawah Domas via a forest is about 1.2 km (or vice versa). So if you are planning to go to Kawah Domas, make sure you are quite physically fit and your knee joints are strong enough. It is an up and down terrain with uneven surfaces. Even tho you always able to take some rest during the hike, just sit for awhile :)
Or maybe some people who is crossing you will asks whether it is still far or closer :p Just give them some positive support lol. Like when Idoleyes kept asking "How many long to go?" ... I said.. "10 meters.. well each 10 meter or less you can take some rest" :p
And yes we did take lots of rest.. Well I didn't complain about it.. I needed it as well haha..

Going down to Kawah Domas

Going up to Kawah Ratu (same route)

This is what you will see :) Beautiful view when taking some rest at the canteen on the way to the summit (or down to Domas crater) worth seeing hu :p

Finally when we approached the summit.. We saw our driver :p and he said.. why so long? lol..
Oh well.. couldn't blame him to ask that lol.. took about hmmm I guess maybe more than an hour to get there.. maybe 2?? O_o (That was why we gave Rp.50.000 more to him haha..)
In fact.. It's only need about 30 minutes from the top to Kawah Domas, but that because goes down.. Not the same when it is step climbing, more tiring (an excuse) :p
Oh forgot to say.. there was 2 boys who was following us since we arrived. They are the venders but quite nice too coz they were helping us alot.. well Idoleyes hehe.. *Hi sis! :)

Then for that she bought a souvenir of 20 key-chains from that boy.. and thats too much lol and not bought anything from the other one. Not interested and too expensive for a bracelet :p Oh well..

So then without looking any other souvenir which are so many stalls there.. We decided just went back to the hotel.. Was too exhausted.

I was happy for Idoleyes .. she made it! Shes kewl. I was worried abit coz she had to catch her flight next day to go back home hehehe my bad :-\

Now shes home :p (*peace!!)

Let's Go Fishing

Fishing as a hobby appeals to groups of all ages. You can fish for sport, hobby or you can catch fish to eat. But The best part of fishing is that it is a chance to enjoy the out-doors. Beside you can learn about patience, relaxing, and how to enjoy nature, it is also a great way to spend time with family or friends (depend on who you are going with).

Beautiful background of Alam Endah Fishpond - Padalarang

A good place to start fishing is in small lakes or ponds. Even tho I prefer to fish on the sea. When I was kid, fishing was something interesting me as long not using worm as the bait :p My family lived across the sea so there was a chance to go fishing with my sister and friends even tho mostly just on the sea side wall. We did catch lots of fishes :p but it didn't makes me a pro fishing lol. By the way, It takes lots of practice to become good at casting. Make sure that no one is standing near you to get caught by the hook when you are casting. Don't catch your friend with a hook! lol.

Pretty big fishpond at Alam Endah restaurant and fishpond

I had chance to fish with my friends at Alam Endah Fishpond after my Sunday Market sell. It also has restaurant located in Padalarang (not far from Bandung). There are many choice of fishes you can catch; goldfish, nila (Nile Tilapia), catfish, and bawal. Every fish you catch is not allowed to throw it back to the pond.
And take a look at my first catcht..! a goldfish :p

Woohoo.. My first catch, a goldfish .. more to go :p

But something happened to that goldfish and other 3 fishes. We put those fishes inside a net bag. Then late we realized if that net bag was broke and had big hole so those fishes could release. So we lost it all and had to start over again and got 4 fishes to bring it home.

Have fun and enjoy fishing, and don't forget to help to clean your catch-and enjoy eating it.

Making Cross-Stitch or Strimin

Cross-Stitch or in Indonesia more known as Strimin may be what you are looking for to spend your boring days and it is simple enough to finish in any time. Usually most of people would say, cross-stitch is for old people lol.
Hey .. so what! this is fun :p

According to Wiki, Cross-stitch is a popular form of counted-thread embroidery in which X-shaped stitches are used to form a picture. Cross-stitch is usually executed on easily countable evenweave fabric. The stitcher counts the threads in each direction so that the stitches are of uniform size and appearance. This form of cross-stitch is also called counted cross-stitch in order to distinguish it from other forms of cross-stitch. Sometimes cross-stitch is done on designs printed on the fabric (stamped cross-stitch); the stitcher simply stitches over the printed pattern.

Here I included some of cross-stitch products that I already finished (click to enlarge)

Sunset cross-stitch pattern (20 x 25cm) in a frame made of wood

Tweety cross-stitch pattern (20 x 25cm) in a frame made of wood

I just realized that I have another hobby that I really like. Making cross stitch. When someone asked me about my hobby, I never mentioned that I like to make cross stitch. And I just realized it few weeks ago when I started to make cross stitch again after long time. I learned to make it from my mom. It was also her hobby in her 30's as I remember. I used to watch her to make it and then I asked her to teach me. She was a good teacher for a young student like I was :p oh and my sister also able to make it and she enjoy it so much too as I do.

I couldn't remember what was the first pattern project I made. But till now I already made different kind of patterns such as landscapes, cartoon figures, animals, flowers etc and different kind of size. For a big size of pattern, I made it together with my sister so would not take much longer to fisnish it. All the cross-stitch I made (or with my sis) are used for personal as a decoration at home or a gift.

White puppy cross-stitch pattern (20 x 25cm) in a frame made of wood

Currently I really in the mood to make this cross-stitch again. But now beside to make it as a hobby I would like to do it for a business too. Perhaps someone would like to buy it :p So I don't need to hang all of it every inches on the wall at home lol. For this, I have my friend - Trie - as a company to do this project. We sure have fun to do this :p

Unfinished cross-stitch project: sunset with a boat (20 x 25cm). Will finish it in a frame too.

Every Sunday morning, an outdoor market with a large number of stalls selling a wide range of beautifully hand-crafted works, jewelry, food, toys, books, second-hand goods, flowers, clothes to shoes & a wide variety of goods; the market has it all at variety and bargain prices. It is a good place to buy the local products, where shoppers can browse among the stalls. Even tho, there are also goods with export quality.

Usually Sunday market is located at the supermarket parking area or a public field or park. There is so many people at the Sunday Market. They usually go with their family or friends for some sport activity like jogging or just for shopping like I usually do :p

Have Fun at Ancol Jakarta

Ancol Beach

Ancol Beach is located in the north of Jakarta. Nearby the beach located an amusement park which you will enjoy and so your family.

This is my favorite picture :)

Ancol is Jakarta's largest and most popular recreation park. Used to be known as "Jaya Ancol Dreamland" (Taman Impian jaya Ancol), its extensive range of attractions includes sea and fresh water aquariums, swimming pools, an artificial lagoon for fishing and boating, a bowling alley, as well as an assortment of nightclubs restaurants, and massage parlors.

You can moving around inside Ancol Bay area by using a car, take a walk or ride a shuttle car which already provided. Inside Ancol Jakarta BayCity area, you will find several hotels such as Raddin Hotel, Wisata Hotel, Mercure Hotel and Putri Duyung Cottages with varied price and facilities.

Aaah.. They are my family couldn't decide whether to go to the Sea-World or beach or dunno :p

I took few pictures from the area when my family and I were going there. It was one day trip as I am living in Bandung and had to go back to Bandung in the evening. Actually the main purpose to Jakarta was visiting my young brother who works in Jakarta. Then we decided to go to Ancol as we thought, lots of things to do in there and my nephews wanted to go to Sea-World again. But their mom wasn't agree because they just been there last month. She wanted to go to the beach area which is not too far from the restaurant at the Sea-World area where we had lunch.

The view from the sea

The dock made of wood, half circling the beach

This is built in the middle of the dock

At the Ancol beach, we just looked around and enjoyed the view and atmosphere there. Some guys offered us for boat ride to see the view from the sea. But we didn't go on it because the wave was a bit too strong. So we just walked along the dock. It was amazing. It made on the sea and the middle on it, there is a restaurant. I dunno whyI like the dock :p and I always tried to take some picture of it when I saw it and of course when I had my camera lol.
