Durian oh.. Durian

Posted by engi at 7:59:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post

One word to describe the taste of Durian is YUMMIE... I just ate it with my sis and Ghos.. it's soo.. delicious!

For people who lives in South East Asia, Durian is well known as "King of fruits". Durian flesh has smooth texture and has yellowis to reddish colour, it taste sweet and delicous. Durian has big round shape with thorns covered it, it has very strong odour. Most people likes this odour but for some people they don't like it because it makes them feel dizzy. For me I'm not big fan of Durian and it's odour but I won't deny to eat it, especially when it's FREE..LOL

Durian contains high amount of sugar, vitamin C, potassium, and the serotonergic acid tryptophan, and it's good source of carbohydrates, proteins, and fat. We can say that it's source of fat! Wow.. it's good for me.. cuz I'm currently (as always T_T) has been underweight. But for you who are in diet program, I can suggest you to minimise its consumption ;) Remember those weight numbers people!!!

My fave is Durian Juice with ice, OMG it's so... delicious!

Well, Durian also able to proceed to become others cuisine such as..

Durian Ice

Ketan Durian (Glutinous Rice Durian)

Durian Cake

All looks delicious rite? Well.. whatever your fave I'm sure  it's delicious since it's made from DURIAN^_^

Under The Dome by Stephen King

Posted by engi at 6:31:00 PM 4 comments Links to this post

Under The Dome is science fiction novel written by Stephen King, published in November 2009. It is a rewrite of a novel King attempted writing twice in the late 1970s and early 1980s, under the titles The Cannibals and Under the Dome. As King stated on his official site, these two unfinished works "were two very different attempts to utilize the same idea, which concerns itself with how people behave when they are cut off from the society they've always belonged to. Also, my memory of The Cannibals is that it, like Needful Things, was a kind of social comedy.The new Under the Dome is played dead straight." 

The town of Chesters Mill (pop. approximately 2000) is suddenly cut off from the rest of the world by an invisible barrier, preventing anything other than a small amount of air and water vapor from passing through. What follows is mostly told from the perspective of Dale "Barbie" Barbara, a former Army lieutenant. After "Dome Day" as it comes to be called, the town quickly collapses into anarchy, as a small war breaks out between the power-hungry second selectman James "Big Jim" Rennie, and a portion of the townsfolk. As Big Jim tightens hold on the town, he begins to spin a tale of propaganda against Barbara, claiming he is a serial killer and partly involved in running a government experiment: turning much of the town paranoid, violent, and suicidal.
The Dome is revealed to be essentially a children's toy, the viewing end of a remote device controlled by the "Leatherheads," humanoid creatures with no facial features and limited concepts of material existence. Their numbers vary wildly, from one to several hundred. The Leatherheads apparently find amusement from Chester's Mill, and feel neither pity nor empathy for the inhabitants, as they don't appear to understand that they exist, albeit on a lower plan of existence (similar to a child killing ants with a magnifying glass). Julia Shumway manages to beg for their lives to a sole Leatherhead who releases the dome, though all but 25 members are now dead.

Another Sad Song

Posted by engi at 5:05:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post

Yesterday, 19th December 2009 I went to my uncle burial, He's my Dad's little brother. He passed away because of accident, somebody hit him by motor cycle while he ride bycycle. The motor cycle front light was off that's why he can't saw my uncle passed the street, the guy was riding in the high speed so it's too late to take the break because he's already hit my uncle. Police officers arrest that guy now. He should pay what he has done.

Nobody thought that my uncle must follow my Dad to the other world. It's only two months from my Dad's death, it was 19th October and now we must cry again. Another sad song has sing...

This heart still hurt cuz you're gone
It's been fragile as ever tho' it looks strong
Nobody knows how hurt I am deep inside
Nobody knows how hard I pretend nothing fell apart

All this fake smile are still on my face
And those real smile have gone along with your trace
I wish you could know how much I regret being lost you
I wish you could know how much I love you

Dad, it's a sad song for you...

Today is Islamic new year 1431 Hijriyah.. For me, this new year become special moment for a big change in my life. Before talking about what changes happening, let's talk about Hijriyah Calendar first^_^

Hijriyah Calendar is Islamic calendar. It called Hijriyah because the first year of this calendar is the year where Prophet Mohammed moved from Mecca to Madinah (in 622 Christian Year). Hijriyah year is based on lunar calendar period. In one year consist of 12 months, and every month consist of 29-30 days. That's why Hirjriyah calendar is 11 days shorter than Christian calendar. If christian calendar start the date on 00.00 hour, Hijriyah calendar starting date when the sun set.

Months Name in Hijriyah Calendar:

  1. Muharram
  2. Safar
  3. Rabiul awal
  4. Rabiul akhir
  5. Jumadil awal
  6. Jumadil akhir
  7. Rajab
  8. Sya'ban
  9. Ramadhan
  10. Syawal
  11. Dzulkaidah
  12. Dzulhijjah

Days Name:

  1. al-Ahad (Sunday)
  2. al-Itsnayn (Monday)
  3. ats-Tsalaatsa' (Tuesday)
  4. al-Arba'aa / ar-Raabi' (Wednesdau)
  5. al-Kamsatun (Thursday)
  6. al-Jumu'ah (Friday)
  7. as-Sabat (Saturday)

Back to my story...
I decided to resign from my previous job and come back to my home town, where my Mom needs me  after my Dad passed away. I will working on new project for my future^_^ Workhard is needed,. no problemo.. struggling is always fun for me! Yay!!

Just like Prophet Mohammed's moving event from Mecca to Madinah. I also moving from the city where I worked in to my home town. For my spiritual point of view, my Hijrah (migration) is from my past where I did something that I not really enjoy it to my future where I'd like to take care of my Mom and make my dream comes true at the same time. To be honest, althought in my previous city I feel insecure, somehow I missed my friends there...

My future is started today. Won't waste time anymore.. won't do something that against my heart anymore...  From now on everything will be different...

Colors of Us

Posted by engi at 3:26:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post

A little boy ask a question to his elder sister...

"Sis, why Angels are always identical with white color?"

The elder sister answer, " Cuz they are pure as white paper, the never do sin in their life"

"Then why Devils identical with Black color?"
"Cuz they do bad things, ask human to do evil things in their life"

"So what color should human identified with?"
"Human are gray, they never been black or white cuz they are not Angel nor Devil. Human could be dark gray when they do bad things in their life, could also identified with light gray when they do good things in their life. Only human that permitted to choose the color that they want, so bro... choose it wisely cuz you must responsible with your choice in front of God in the day after"

Resignation Notification - A New Path Ahead

Posted by engi at 12:53:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post

At last.. this morning I sent my resignation notification to my customers. It looks nice, isn't?

My feeling is mix up between glad, sad, and another weird feeling that I don't know what's that... One thing that I believe is 

I've take the right path! 

This resignation is a gateway to reach my dream, a dream that I've been left out along this last 3 years. I'm sure there'll be great effort to make it comes true, but with work hard I'm sure I can make it^_^
Just like Paulo Coelho's Quotes on The Alchemist

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

“When you want something with all your heart, that’s when you are closest to the Soul of the World. It’s always a positive force.”   

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

God knows that all I want is...
To bring back my dreams to my world and a will to repair all the mistakes that I've done...

Home Sweet Home... Not A Dream Anymore^_^

Posted by engi at 12:54:00 PM 2 comments Links to this post
Have our own home will always be everyone's dream. For me, I want to have a small house with two floors, green garden in front yard and wide back yard. Have swimming pool at the back yard will be awesome^_^ A place with good neighborhood where I could raise my future children well. I'd like to have minimalist or modern home design.Let's see... I have some design that I like...

 Modern small house with pool, 4 sides view from different room, a lot of big windows and transparency. Nice!

 This kind of back yard = AWESOME^_^

Eco friendly house... Good Concept!! be honest, to buy this home of my dream cash will be hard for me. My current saving won't be enough to buy a nice house... T_T If I insist to wait and buy cash it will take about 20-30 years to have it.. NO!!! That will be to long T_T I'm sure there will be a way to get mortgage to built or to buy a house. But I don't know where to start to find information about it. I talked to my friend, Dan. He have mortgage since last year, he bought a nice small house in South Carolina when he decide to marry her long term girl friend. According to Dan, to get mortgage approval from the lender we must have A good credit records of our loans including credit cards or others loan. For me good credit records is not a matter^_^ I had good record from my previous vehicle loan. The Lender even offer me  to get another kind of loan since according to them I'm a good customer, LOL

Well, with steady income and good credit record I'm sure that I'm quite reliable. But to find the right lender that suit with my finance condition and needs is quite difficult. Dan advise me to get professional advice. According to his experience he got everything from FiveStarHomeMortgage, they help Dan to find the right type of mortgage that suit his needs, helping to find the right lender so that he can save more money on his home purchase. FiveStarHomeMortage cover mortgage along USA and Canada, it's quite wide range. Wow.. that's what I call complete set!! Can't hardly wait to contact them^_^

PS: Thanks to Dan for this information!^_^
