Osama Making Music for Obama

Who would have guessed that Osama contributed to a great piece of music for Obama? This Osama was playing the bass, setting the blues rhythm with Pearl Jam's drummer Matt Cameron, under the direction of Bergevin Brothers and along with many other volunteers, such as the Total Experience Gospel. The hair on the back of my neck stood up when the choir started singing!

MUST SEE MOVIE: SiCKO by Michael Moore

I have just finished watching Michael Moore's new film SiCKO on my computer. Just in case you have not heard: The master copy of the film had the potential of being confiscated by US government due to its Cuban related footage but somehow Moore managed to get it distributed globally via the internet. I wrote about this a few weeks ago.

Understanding Phinisi or Pinisiq: Indonesian Traditional Sailboats Influenced by European Modern Design

I am sure some of you may have heard about the legacy of Phinisi as something Indonesians can be proud of but have you really found out what the word really means and what it refers to? In fact, the word Phinisi originated from the word pinisiq and probably after the word pinasse, which in the French and German of the time referred to a medium-sized sailing boat.

Ice Blink: Documentary on Cruising + Live Aboard Family

Pardon me if I may sound like I have been so obsessed with sailing. I am doing this because sailing has been on my mind for quite a while now and just being honest with what my hands want me to type.

Great Inspiration for Me and Rani

After thinking hard enough, ocean cruise sailing is the kind of lifestyle Rani and I will adopt over a course of 5 years. Out of a hectic life exists a simple and joyful life propelled by the natural force of wind. And this video is just one of many inspiring stories we have discovered.

By watching this video: "Sailing on a 42' catamaran through the Bay of Islands of New Zealand", we hope you will understand what we mean by it.

Sailing Lesson Day 3: I am a Sailor now

Finally, I can call myself a Competent Crew for Keelboat! From now, I can legally offer my skills and expertise to any sailboat owner who needs a crew.

Technically, this means I've learned the basics of boat handling. I can be a useful member of a yacht crew rather than just another body for the skipper to worry about.

14 December: Los Angeles to Mexico City

Our Impression of Mexico Megacity

When descending to Mexico City, a land at 2500m above sea level, we saw the city light from above, which was very very very beautiful. Too bad we didn’t have camera ready. We won’t be seeing this beautiful sight again. Such glitters are unique to this city of 23 million!

We arrived at dawn in Mexico City. The immigration officer talked really fast, somehow I felt that the effort I made in learning Spanish has been futile.

When we took our luggage we found out that Noe’s pack of diapers was torn up. But amazingly the officer returned the scattered diapers into the conveyor belt.

After clearing out the Douana we met Carlos Peralta! He is such a crazy gringo loco who is very skinny and eccentric. He told us a lot of story about when he was in Indonesia and traveling around the world learning arts, including glass blowing art. Carlos stayed with Indi’s family in Jakarta from 1992 to 1993 and has kept his Indonesian lingo polished since then.
