A typical rainy day in Jakarta

Yesterday, my colleague and I went around Cawang area to scout for a house for one of the instructors for the training center and while we were doing our rounds the rain poured.
The flooding is a manifestation of the poor drainage system in this country. Imagine this is only about 15 minutes of rain. Can you picture in your heads what happened to Jakarta when it rained here for several days last February? Several areas where submerged in flood water.
It is my earnest hope that everyone will start cleaning their own backyards. Stop throwing garbage just anywhere. A small effort of throwing your trash in the right place will go a long long way for mother earth. This is our planet, we have to contribute in making this a better place to live in.

Jakarta's treats

Take a look at these treats from Jakarta. This country never cease to amaze me because everyday you will unravel something beautiful. Imagine biting into something sweet and at the same time spicy. I'm sure those of you who are have not tried this would squirm. But I tell you, life is too short, so we have to allow ourselves to experience the best life has to offer.

So next time you would ponder on which places to visit... think of INDONESIA...

Mourning for Nemo

Every day I wake up to check the tank where we have several kinds of fish. I am drawn however to Nemo because he is such a doll. Then as the days passed I noticed that his tail had been chipped off, then his flippers and then last thursday he just didn't come up for breakfast anymore. I tried searching for him and then there he was at the bottom of the tank lifeless. There was no hope of rescuing him, and the perpetrator is none other than this eel i called Snakey. Today, the guys who cleans and maintains our fish tank took him away and gave me a new Nemo. Well, I hope things will be peaceful inside the tank now. As what my boss told me, it is the nature of a snake to be a preadator wherever they may be. Well, now that Snakey is no longer around, it is my ardent hope that all the fishes in the tank will live peacefully because it gives someone like me a sense of joy.
