My 4 Months Old baby-week 2


Crying is still the strongest form of his communication but he laughs at pleasant surprises and starts to develop his sense of humour
Loves to play a lot
His left hand tries to reach and touch the dirty diaper at diaper-changing time. 
Bears weight on leg and bounces

Loves black and white colours
Loves and pays attention to stripes pattern and piano tuts
Inspects mama's fingers
Pays attention to calendar's sheets blown by 
Loves to see everything from all position
Loves to be carry 
Says aaaaaaaaaak to get attention
Whines before falling asleep
Being the centre of the universe, needs fully attention
No more cries when poops
No more spitting up
No more colic
No more explosive bowel movements
Starts to love yellow color
Starts to imitate lips movement- when his brother eats, he imitates making chew motions- imitates making mouth open when i said O
Makes simple sounds " gaaaa"
Moving its head from side to side while sleeping
Snuffles-blocked nose while sleeping
Stops crying by soothing voice
Stops crying by my appearance

Kiong hee


Once upon a time my youngest boy was born. He had lay down on his tummy to breastfeed for the first time a while after i gived birth.
He tried to lift his head, looked for nipples then soothed his hand on delivery room.

" Congrats for having a clever baby!" Said the paediatric to papa

My 2 weeks old baby slept on his side and lifted his head for 45 degree
He rolled over from front to back by Two months
Then he rolls over and over by Three months

I begin to change my interest and being a proud mom whom proudly presents my BABY

Karena kehadiranmu ketertarikanku berubah deh...
Dimulai dari si dedek keluar dari perut terus inisiasi menyusui dini, begitu ditengkurepin diperutku kepalanya udah berusaha mau ngangkat terus nguyel-nguyel cari susu, sedikit frustasi dedek milih ngemut tangannya..dokter anaknya langsung kasih selamat ke papa, " Selamat ya pak, anaknya pintar!"
Umur satu minggu si dedek udah bobok miring, umur 2 minggu udah mulai ngangkat kepala dan umur tiga minggu udah ngangkat kepala sewaktu ditengkurepin. Umur 2 bulan udah balik sendiri ke posisi telentang tiap ditengkurepin dan umur 3 bulan udah tengkurep sendiri..

Bukan bangga namanya kalo tidak pamer..

On the Life of a Mom

Happiness comes on and goes beyond
As a choice NOT an option.
My sons 
My happiness
Warms my heart and soul
Glowing my days
As time can flies
But each time with you, i wish without end
For being your mom
I forget what i was

Loves to play with me and cries when stop
Excited entering inside his blanket

A trip to the Besakih temple turns out to be quite difficult due the location is in the highest of Bali Island. The road to the temple is likely to climb. The Besakih temple is located in the village of Besakih in Karangasem area in the region of Mount Agung, the highest volcano which is still active in Bali. Located on the highest plateau in Bali makes a blazing sun is rare, the weather tends to be dark, cold, foggy and often rainy.

Far from everywhere ... That's the mother temple of Besakih. Up and down the winding streets, houses are rare one with the other, the left-right gap, as well as the weather that always cloudy and humid shattered our intention not to visit Besakih Temple. The tops of the Palm trees under our foot, the green of the rice fields of Bali as well as the warm silence brings us to Besakih Temple which is the mother of all Balinese temples. Besakih Temple is the oldest, largest and the forerunner of the Temple in Bali, these temple is older than the Tanah Lot Temple and Gunung Kawi Temple. The shape of the temple stairs has similarities to rung Aztecs in Maya. Old, beautiful and mysteriously standing from the time before the Majapahit Kingdom makes Besakih considered to be the mother of all Hindus Temples in Indonesia.

Sacred, everyone are not welcome to climb upstairs the Besakih, those who do not worship but climbs up to photograph by their self, merely a person who does not respect to the culture of others. There are limits which should not be violated sacred, unless we want to worship. Visitors can only round of Besakih and purchase a variety of souvenirs that are provided.

Hotels and Inns around the temple is very rare even though the air is cool and the atmosphere is very calm to stay as serene as the night. Various stories about the Leak and the wizards are felt real for the citizens of the temple. Along the dark of the night, houses which are rather far apart and the Misty Mountains as well as a number of big trees around Mount Agung and Dim lamp of the residents makes the night in a deserted Besakih Temple might be fun..

Perjalanan ke Besakih ternyata cukup sulit, berada di daerah tertinggi di Pulau Bali, jalan menuju Besakih cenderung menanjak. Besakih terletak di desa Besakih di daerah Karangasem di wilayah gunung Agung, gunung berapi tertinggi yang masih aktif di Bali. Berada di dataran tinggi tertinggi di Bali membuat terik matahari adalah hal yang langka, cuacanya cenderung berkabut, dingin, gelap dan sering hujan.

Jauh dari mana- mana...itulah Pura Besakih. Jalanan yang berkelok-kelok naik turun, rumah penduduk yang jarang satu dengan yang lain, kanan kiri jurang, serta cuaca yang selalu mendung dan lembab tentu tidak menyurutkan niat mengunjungi Pura Besakih. Bisa melihat pucuk pohon kelapa dibawah kaki, hijaunya sawah Bali serta kesunyian yang hangat membawa kita ke Pura Besakih yang merupakan Ibu dari semua pura di Bali. Pura Besakih adalah Pura tertua, terbesar yang merupakan cikal bakal pura di Bali, bahkan ternyata Pura Besakih ini berumur lebih tua dari pura Tanah Lot dan Pura Gunung Kawi. Bentuk anak tangga Besakih bahkan memiliki kemiripan dengan anak tangga suku Aztec di Maya. Tua, cantik secara misterius dan masih kokoh berdiri sejak masa sebelum kerajaan Majapahit belum berdiri hingga sekarang membuat Pura ini dianggap sebagai Ibu dari semua Pura di Indonesia.

Sakral, tidak sembarang orang bisa menaiki anak tangga Besakih, jika ada orang yang tidak beribadah tapi naik untuk berfoto-foto, orang tersebut hanyalah orang yang tidak menghargai budaya orang lain. Ada batas suci yang tidak boleh dilanggar, kecuali kita mau beribadah. Pengunjung hanya bisa mengitari pelataran Besakih dan membeli berbagai souvenir yang disediakan.

Hotel dan penginapan di sekitar Besakih sangat jarang meskipun udaranya sangat sejuk dan suasananya tenang setenang malam. Berbagai cerita tentang Leak dan santet terasa nyata bagi warga Besakih, seiring dengan gelapnya malam, rumah penduduk yang agak berjauhan dan suasana pegunungan yang berkabut serta banyaknya pohon besar di sekitar gunung Agung. Lampu penduduk pun cenderung remang-remang sekitar Besakih ini. Bermalam di Besakih yang sunyi tentu menyenangkan.....

Tiantan Park

Tiantan Park or Temple of Heaven in Surabaya is a replica of the Tiantan Park in Beijing. The shape is similar but different from the number of visitors and the interest of tourists to these attraction. Tiantan Park or Temple of Heaven is located in the tourist area of Surabaya of Kenjeran Park. In The Region East of Surabaya. Admission to the Tiantan Park is the parking ticket we paid at the entrance counter in the tourist area of Kenjeran, Rp. 10.000,-per car. The rest did not have to pay again. Tiantan Park/ Temple of Heaven is the limit back of the Kenjeran area, which is not far from Sanggar Agung and Mangrove.

The atmosphere was quiet, no visitors but me and one spouse under a tree while others was busy did somewhat in their closed car. The Kenjeran tourist area is well-known as a place that is used to date from couples in the sealed car, the motor until pedestrians. Cheap hotels are mess arranged scatters in the region of Kenjeran. Feels a little anxiousness by entering the Tiantan Park of Kenjeran due many cases of motor vehicle theft ever took place. Of course a quiet atmosphere didn't cause a kind of sense of the controversy over the romance. 

Temple of heaven consists of several stairs. I could hear the voice of the Beach...wus wus wus wus....Just by stepping on these first stairs i felt the winds blow, coastal winds are more pronounced when climbing up the stairs until stand in the Tiantan building. The staircase rises to blew to be more toned,  like an increasing button of the speed of the fan, the more wind over the more toned by its stairs.

Spinning ... As a similar round pattern of the Relief  with a lot of vandalism, these wall are written of a racist quote by some visitors. Tiantan Park Kenjeran is often used by the drunken local youth. Alone in a place where there is no activity apparently evoke feelings of insecurity, except at a quiet expensive villa of course. . Touring round around the temples of Heaven while a scavenger is seen to follow behind my back caused a bit of uncomfortable feeling.

Tiantan Park Gate was a little bit open that brought my curiosity to see what's inside, apparently the only clothesline from the bums whom spend the night at Tiantan Park. The Temple of heaven is indeed less functioning, just sort of sweetener only, It has become a home for the homeless shelter, reluctantly I went into. I walked briefly around the temples of heaven twice. Passed many dirt that been filled by the horses, then back to the car and said goodbye ...The Temple Of Heaven...Tiantan Park Surabaya ...

Tiantan Park atau Kuil Langit di Surabaya merupakan Replika dari Tiantan Park di Beijing. Bentuknya mirip tapi memiliki perbedaan dari jumlah pengunjung dan ketertarikan wisatawan terhadap obyek wisata ini. Tiantan Park atau Kuil Langit terletak di kawasan wisata Kenjeran Surabaya. Di Wilayah Surabaya Timur. Tiket masuk ke Tiantan Park adalah tiket parkir yang kita bayar di loket masuk kawasan wisata Kenjeran, Rp. 10.000,- per mobil. Selebihnya tidak harus membayar lagi. Tiantan Park atau Kuil Langit Kenjeran berada di batas paling ujung belakang kawasan Kenjeran, tidak jauh dari mangrove dan Sanggar Agung.

Suasananya sepi, tidak ada pengunjung hanya ada satu pasangan dibawah pohon, beberapa sibuk entah melakukan apa di dalam mobil yang dibiarkan tertutup rapat. Kawasan wisata Kenjeran memang terkenal dengan kawasan yang dipakai untuk orang berpacaran, mulai dari dalam mobil yang tertutup rapat, sampai motor bahkan pejalan kaki. Hotel- hotel murah tidak tertata pun bertebaran di dalam kawasan ini. Masuk kedalam Tiantan Park terasa sedikit was-was karena, banyak kasus pencurian kendaraan bermotor pernah terjadi, suasana yang sepi tidak menimbulkan suatu romantisme lebih semacam rasa galau.

Kuil langit terdiri dari beberapa anak tangga, angin pantai berhembus kencang suaranya pun terdengar wus wus wus hanya dengan menapaki anak tangganya. Angin pantai memang lebih terasa saat menaiki anak tangga, tidak akan terasa jika berdiri di pelatarannya, semakin naik ke tangga hembusannya semakin kencang, anak tangga Tiantan Park bagaikan tombol untuk menaikkan kecepatan di kipas angin, semakin keatas angin semakin kencang. 

Berputar...relief Tiantan Park Kenjeran terasa sama, dinding pintunya banyak dicoret-coret, bahkan di temboknya ditulis kata- kata kasar yang berbau rasis oleh pengunjung. Tiantan Park Kenjeran memang sering dipakai untuk ajang mabuk pemuda lokal. Sendirian di tempat yang tidak ada aktivitas ternyata membangkitkan perasaan tidak aman, kecuali di villa yang mahal tentu. . Berkeliling mengitari kuil langit sementara seorang pemulung terlihat mengikuti di belakangku menimbulkan sedikit perasaan tidak nyaman.

Pintu gerbang Tiantan Park yang sedikit tersibak, membuatku penasaran untuk melihat apa yang ada di dalam, ternyata hanya jemuran baju dari para gelandangan yang bermalam di Tiantan Park. Kuil langit ini memang kurang berfungsi, hanya semacam pemanis saja, oh ternyata sudah menjadi semacam rumah buat tempat tinggal para gelandangan, Enggan aku masuk kedalam, mengitari kuil langit dua kali, berjalan sebentar di tamannya yang banyak dipenuhi kotoron kuda dan kembali ke mobil sambil mengucapkan selamat tinggal...Kuil Langit..Tiantan Park Surabaya...

Stasiun Gubeng


Train is one of an special form which is owned by the island of Java but others islands in Indonesia yet. Train station exists along the island of Java, not also in Madura and Bali, in spite of  nearly located  to the island of Java. The latest news is the train will be launched in the area of Sumatra.

Gubeng station is not as big station  as Balapan station in Solo, Tugu station in Jogja and Tawang Station in Semarang. Most of the Gubeng's passengers waiting for trains for departure to Malang, Probolinggo, Sidoarjo, Mojokerto, Kertosono to travel route is not so far.

Kereta Api adalah salah satu bentuk ekslusivitas yang dimiliki oleh pulau Jawa, dan tidak ada di Pulau lain di Indonesia. Stasiun Kereta Api hanya ada di sepanjang pulau Jawa, tidak juga di Madura dan Bali yang terletak bersebelahan dengan pulau Jawa. Berita terbaru adalah akan diluncurkan kereta api di kawasan Sumatra. Jalur kereta Api yang ada sekarang pun  sebagian besar adalah peninggalan Belanda.

Surabaya sebagai kota yang cukup beruntung mendapatkan jalur kereta api tentu memiliki beberapa stasiun sebagai syarat pemberhentian kereta. Salah satunya adalah Stasiun Gubeng yang terletak di Jalan Stasiun Gubeng, berhadapan dengan Rumah Sakit DKT, tidak jauh dari Plaza Surabaya dan Grand City Mall.

Karma Kandara

One evening, we sat on the stairs of Karma Kandara, there was only us while the sun began to sink. The Sea turned the Karma colour into blue sometimes green, sometimes soothing. As the sun began to set, shimmering a grain of gold scattered upon the sea. From the top of the stairs we waited for a beautiful maroon sunset. The warm rays touched our skin. Felt the peaceful and pleasant could be. I thought about a good Karma. Quiet and warm afternoon couple a steps from Karma Kandara.

Suatu senja, Kita duduk di anak tangga Karma Kandara, hanya ada kita dan matahari yang mulai tenggelam, laut Karma yang cantik pun berubah warna kadang hijau kadang biru menyejukkan hati. Saat matahari mulai tenggelam, kilaunya bagai butiran emas tersebar di air laut. Dari atas anak tangga kita menunggu matahari tenggelam. Sinarnya yang hangat menyentuh kulit hati. Terasa damai dan menyenangkan, suasana sore yang sepi dan hangat  di anak tangga beberapa langkah dari Karma Kandara...
