Weekly Photo Challenge: Today was a Good Day

p. bidadariIt was really a good day, it terms of any conditions, the beach, the ocean, the beautiful blue sky and the weather. Bidadari Island in Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT) Indonesia, is one of the best my destination holiday. I am the person who really love the sea and the ocean. Has not have a chance to learn diving, and felt scared when did snorkeling. I was regret because I did not swim in the deeper sea when I went to NTT (because none of our ship cabin crew wants to accompany me). But I still had so much fun, and really want to go to that place anymore. So, when I went to Bunaken Island, Nourth Sulawesi, Indonesia. I have a guide who accompany me to swim into the ocean. And really have unforgettable moment. When we hold our breath for a while and dive into the ocean, then when we swimming to the surface we could see the sunlight falling into the ocean. So beautiful!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

Image

What does selfie mean? According to Oxford dictionary (online), definition of selfie is a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website. Unfortunately, recently I just found out that many of my friends have a misunderstanding about selfie means. They thought selfie is the photograph of oneself (without being accompanied by others) and it has taken by others. So, everytime I upload my photograph and receive a comment from someone who has a misunderstanding about selfie, I’ll try to correct their understanding and give their an explanation about selfie means. I think it is necessary for us to understand about what we say. So, please correct me if I am wrong.

Talking about selfie, I am not used to do that kind of thing. As I remember, if I try to make a selfie, the result always not satisfactory at all. But one day, when I went to some places by myself, there are only 3 options if I want to capture the moment. First, I could only take the picture of the beautiful view of that place. Second, if I want to have myself in the picture, I could ask someone to take my photo, but it is a little bit annoying I think. So the last option is selfie, I have to take my own picture by myself. So that I try to make selfie. I try so many times to get at least one good picture, but as you can see (the above photograph) the photo is still not good. Then, though (perhaps) it was a little bit annoying and embarrassing, I ask anyone I meet to take my photo :D. In my opinion, to memorize the special moment,  I would ask someone to help me in taking my picture rather than I make a selfie with bad result because the moment itself will never be repeated.

Weekly Photo Challenge: One (and Only Mother)

Weekly Photo Challenge: One (and Only Mother)

Since my father already passed away 13 years ago, so I will do anything for her.

She is not perfect but it shows that she is a human. She not always be in good mood because maybe she have experienced a hard life. Sometimes she said that she is ok, but it is a common word for her to say, in order to make us happy and not worry about her. She really wants us to be happy and secure with our life and sometimes it makes her sacrifices everything.

There will be no precious things in this world could be exchanged with all the things that she already gave to us. She is the one and only mother I have. I really hope she always be happy and healthy in her life.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers

I took these water lily flowers’ picture during my vacation in Malang City, East Java, Indonesia. Around Tugu Malang, there is beautiful lily water flower pond that makes me interested to take its picture.

We could take a lesson that beautiful lily water flower can grow in the middle of a dirty pond and moss. As a human being we could learn that no matter how bad or dirty the environment we live in, hopefully we could protect ourselves from the bad influences, and still could be a good human being.

As physically they may not look perfect. But they are the most beautiful children that God ever created. When many people are complaining with their life, these children, Jelita, Ubay and Bella are laughing happily and they are willing to play with us who visit hem. Their cheerfulness is a gift to us. We think, we are the one who give something for them, but actually their smile gives a lot of meaning to us.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

I took this photo when I was on vacation at Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. I always love sunrise and sunset moment, it is the time when we can see the greatness of The God. Plus at that time I have a chance to sleep on a boat in the middle of the ocean. It was a new experience that I will never forget. Since I was in the middle of the ocean, so it was easy for me to see the sunrise and sunset moment.

I took this photo at around 6 to 7 pm. At this moment, I and my friend suddenly stopped to talk, we were both silent and amazed with what we saw at that moment, it was natural painting of the earth and very beautiful. Although many of my friends say this photo is beautiful, but there was nothing like to compare by seeing it directly.


Thank God for the opportunity, so I could see  The Beauty of Your Creation.

This picture shows one of living rooms in my grandparent‘s house in Malang, East Java, Indonesia. Every lebaran day, we are all gather in their very big house. This room is used to greet the relatives who come and visit them.

But now, everything is change. My grandparents is already passed away. The situation is not the same anymore. We as a big family still gather in their very big house, but there will be no my grandfather anymore.

The constant in life is changes. We have to accept it whether we like it or not. It is easier to accept the things that we can not change or adjust our attitude to it.
