Blood Type Personality Comic (Part 1)

October 31st, 2011 2 comments

Some time ago, while walking together with my friend, accidentally we talked about blood type. At that time also, my friend who studied from Visual Communication Design told me about Personality based on Blood type. Talked about this personality really exciting for us. Inadvertently been almost 3 hours we were in a small dining depot talking about it. I myself have read quite a lot about several types of personalities, but only this time I heard more clearly and more details about personality based on blood type.Interestingly, there is a Korean illustrator making comics about personality based on blood type.

Some time ago I had gathered all comic pages created by that Korean illustrator. On this occasion I will share to all of you about these comics. These comics are a bit intriguing, but also accurate. I wonder how the illustrator really understand each blood type personality & made these comics? Read more…

Feng Shui History and Origins

October 30th, 2011 1 comment

I grew up in families that believe in 风水 Feng Shui. Not only my grandfather and my grandmother that believe on Feng Shui, almost all member from my father’s and mother’s large family also believe on Feng Shui. I personally is one kind of modern people who do not easily believe in such sciences like Feng Shui. I usually need to know fact first before believe in such of sciences. But along with the experience i start to believe there is real truth behind the science of Feng Shui. Therefore, this time I want to write about history and origins of Feng Shui. Feng Shui has a long history, because it is an ancient art and science developed over 5,000 years ago in China. I write this article based on articles and several books I have ever read.

What is Feng Shui?

Hari-hari Membosankan seorang Wanita

October 28th, 2011 No comments

Hari berganti hari, rasa bosan kembali melanda. Ingin rasanya keluar dari semua ini. Ingin rasanya pergi yang jauh di mana aku bisa lepas dari semua ini. Aku ingin tinggal di luar negeri. Ini salah satu impianku. Aku tinggal di kamar yang besar ini bersama adikku yang hanya 1 tahun lebih muda dariku. Kami tidak tinggal bersama orang tua kami. Aku sudah terbiasa tinggal tanpa orang tua sejak SMP. Ini dikarenakan orangtuaku sibuk mencari nafkah dulu. Waktu aku SMP dulu, Orangtuaku harus bekerja di kalimantan. Jadi aku sudah sangat terbiasa hidup bersama adikku sejak dulu. Hari ini aku merenung. Terkadang aku kurang bisa mengenal siapa diriku sendiri. Tapi menurut saudaraku dan teman-temanku :

– Aku ini orangnya sangat suka dengan kebersihan. Jadi aku paling anti dengan sesuatu yang kotor
– Entah kenapa aku ini mudah sekali merasa bosan apalagi bila aku tidak punya kegiatan dan harus berdiam diri di rumah Read more…

Shanghai Metro System Map

October 25th, 2011 No comments

Like other MRT in mainland (China), Shanghai MRT is well known as Shanghai Metro. Shanghai Metro is the urban rapid transit that incorporates both subway and light metro lines in Shanghai. Shanghai metro recognized as one of the fastest-growing and busiest rapid transit systems in the world. Even, the Shanghai Metro was built after Beijing Metro and Tianjin Metro in China, it is now has exceeded it’s predecessor.  I just tried Shanghai Metro couple days ago when i went on trip to Shanghai. Actually, i had a unpleasant experience when using Shanghai Metro. When i tried to go to the Bund at night, i must paid twice because there is a metro station that should be the exchange line station is not connected (the building of each line is separated). So if it is the first time you go by MRT in Shanghai, you must be careful. Just pay attention to the exchange line of each MRT Station. If the dot (circle) is separated, then i don’t suggest you to switch line at that station. It will be better to switch line at overlapping dot station.

Nanjing Metro (MRT) System Map

October 23rd, 2011 No comments

I just traveled to Nanjing couple days ago. Too bad, i don’t have a chance to try the MRT (Metro) there. Actually i have seen the Metro signboard when i walk around Nanjing that time, but when i follow the sign, i could find the Metro Station. Nanjing Metro (MRT) has just opened in 2005. It’s quite new compared to Beijing Subway and Tianjin Metro. But the line has been built is only 2 line (similar to Tianjin Metro). So we couldn’t only depend to this Metro to go every place in Nanjing. The fare for Nanjing metro is varies and it’s distance-based. Minimum fares is 2 yuan (USD $0.30) for one journey.

Travel in China Day 4 (Hangzhou) : Thousand Island Lake, Hangzhou Tea House, Yue Fei Temple, West Lake, Night of West Lake Show

October 20th, 2011 1 comment

List of tourist attraction visited today :
– Thousand Island Lake
– Hangzhou Tea House
– Yue Fei Temple
– West Lake
– Qinghefang Pedestrian Street
– Night of West Lake Show

After a very tired day climbing Huangshan mountain yesterday, we must wake up early today to continue our trip to the next city. We departed from our hotel at 6 o’clock and heading to Hangzhou by bus. Along the way, we visited a very famous scenery place in China, 千岛湖 Qiandao Hu (Thousand Island Lake). This place located at Zhejiang, China. After about 3 hours of trip, we finally arrived at Thousand Island Lake.

千岛湖 Qiandao Hu (Thousand Island Lake)

Qiandao Hu is known as the hometown of Sun Quan, Emperor of Wu kingdom in Three Kingdoms Era. When i search on the internet, i just know that Thousand Island receives about 5 million tourists annually and it has been honored as one of the three best tourism areas in China, besides the capital Beijing and the Three Gorges of the Yangtze River. The Thousand-Island Lake is also honored as “World’s Garden City” and “China’s Best Preserved Ecological Town“. But honestly, based on my opinion i feel that the honor titles are a little bit too much. There are a lot of a place like this in my country. So even it is beautiful, but i don’t think that this place is extraordinary and make it as a place you can’t missed when when you go to China.

Travel in China Day 3 (Huangshan) : Climbing Huangshan Mountain

October 20th, 2011 No comments

I was too tired to write a blog post after climbing 黄山 Huangshan mountain yesterday. So, i just wrote the journey now. On the third day, we departed from our hotel around 7 o’clock and we would climb Huangshan mountain. We switched the bus at the bus station and then go to Huangshan mountain starting point. When arrived, the tour guide ask to us about what way we want to choose. There are two options which are the easy way (cable car) or the hard way (walking). The hard way is climbing the mountain by foot and it is totally free of charge. Meanwhile the easy way is go to the top of the mountain by using RMB 75 cable car. Because i see all the young people in our tour group choose to walk, then i and my girlfriend choose the same way.
