Happiness on Rice Field

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Happy Place.”

Long dry season is tough time to grow crops. But mother nature is generous enough to let us cherish in joy of harvest. These are pictures taken in Sukorejo, Ponorogo. Seeing yellow rice fields along your journey. People harvest the crops in traditional way. In some areas, black smoke is visible as result of burned hays. Trucks, pickups, even motorcycles carrying harvested crops. Economic activity will take place soon. These are happy times. This fortunate soil is happy place for those who place their life on crops. Happy place for anyone has time to enjoy it.

Street Art of Bandung City Zoo

Bandung is filled with restless creative minds. They create fine arts on every corner of the city. Clean walls are rare sight these days. Walls are filled with various forms of street art. May it be mural or graffiti. This kind of creativity is supported by local government as long as the message is positive. So, you will find many galleries of street art in Bandung. One of cool gallery, yet not praised enough, is located at Jl. Tamansari Bandung. The exact place is on the walls of Bandung City Zoo. It is next to my campus, and today I only have little to do. So I captured some street art there and post it. The complete list of photos are available on my Pinterest Board. Enjoy.

Menilik Imlek di Pasar Gede Solo

Ketika Imlek, saya sempat berkunjung sebentar ke Solo. Sayang sekali tidak sempat menikmati malam Tahun Baru Imlek yang katanya penuh dengan lampion dan perayaan suka cita. Sebagai gantinya saya pergi ke Pasar Gede keesokan harinya untuk mengamati keindahan yang tersisa. Yah, nampaknya saya kurang beruntung. Semoga masih ada kesempatan untuk dapat melihat Pasar Gede yang gemerlap dan penuh sesak.

Kota ini memang unik dengan keanekaragamannya. Ragam masyarakat Jawa, Arab, dan Tionghoa membentuk kota Solo yang menyatu.

Selain melihat-lihat hiasan Imlek, saya juga menyempatkan menikmati dawet di Pasar Gede yang legendaris itu. Lumayan sekali buat menyegarkan dahaga. Apalagi matahari pas terik-teriknya.

Tidak banyak lagi yang bisa dilihat. Saya tidak dapat momennya. Tapi semoga pembaca bisa menikmati hasil jepretan yang terbatas ini 🙂

Terakhir, empunya blog juga pengen ikutan mejeng sekali-sekali hehehe.

admin blog ini gaul banget

Gallery of Indonesian Tea

While shopping at Hypermart (Yes! There exist a Hypermart in Ponorogo), I stumbled upon interesting section. Beverages. Among beautifully packaged beverages, I couldn’t stop seeing these classic tea. Fine tea, blended with jasmine. You could smell it few meters away. Above it all, the paper packaged products gave you classic sensation. Try drink one in the morning or evening. You can feel the tranquility of Javanese wisdom.
