Come Join Us: Pilgrimage to Cuba

In light of our preparation to visit Cuba in December 2006, Rani and I have been reading so many books about the place as well as watching films with the same subject.

If you have an interest in Cuba, Fidel Castro or Che Guevara, I'd like to recommend you to watch a documentary film on Fidel Castro that I borrowed from National Library in Singapore. The film title is "Fidel: The Untold Story", a film by Estella Bravo readily available at Amazon.com. Please, let me know what you think about the film, good or bad.

Rani the Aries and Indi the Virgo

I am not a great fan of horoscopes but I find some 90% truth in what has been prescribed for a relationship/marriage between an Aries (Rani) and a Virgo (Indi).

What is the benefit of being Indonesian? (as compared to being Malaysian)

Other than having the right to own land in Indonesia (preferably by square meters not by cubic meters), what else do you think are the benefits of being Indonesian (as compared to being Malaysian)?

Have you been to Argentina or Cuba?

The great thing about having your own website (or blog) is that you could also post your question and, hopefully, get genuine responses.

So, please allow me to ask you some questions (you can respond in comment section):

Mbak Tutut

I have just received a phone call from Askar, whom I trusted. He made this phone call from Cold Storage Supermarket Takashimaya Ngee Ann City. He said that he just saw Mbak Tutut right in front of him, pushing Cold Storage pushcart and doing her grocery shopping.

First Booger

A few minutes ago, Noe had just picked his nose for the first time. He was using his index finger of his left hand. I hope he won't end up eating his booger instead.

Minangkabau Day 3

The last day Indi was supposed to wake up early for a game of golf, but the rain did not stop so everybody ended up waiting at the café and enjoying a prolonged breakfast amidst the rain. Finally, nearing 10am, everybody decided to cancel the golf game and boarded the bus to lake Maninjau.

It was a long yet scenic drive to the lake. We passed by a vegetable market, and I thought that I had never seen vegetable that fresh before. But who wants to buy cabbages that have been sat on for hours?

Minangkabau Day 2

The second day we woke up and almost late for breakfast. Indi had a quick shower, I didn't and neither did Noe. Noe slept really soundly, and it was rather difficult to wake him up. But we woke him up anyway, and he was quite fussy in the morning because of this. Luckily, Eyang Kakung took Noe to swing in the playground and Noe's back to his usual self.

After Nasi Goreng breakfast, we boarded the bus for a long drive to Bungus Bay. On the way, we saw a lot of unique sights such as graduation parade for religious schools and various kinds of decorated vehicle. After about one and a half hour drive we arrived at the bay and took the boat to Sikuai Island, a tiny island off Sumatra at Indian Ocean. The boat journey took us 45 minutes.
