Apple is releasing new patch

If you think that hackers are only targeting Microsoft products, you are wrong. On early November Krystian Kloskowski from Poland who are working on monitoring software security found a "hole" in Quicktime player. Not long after, many hackers took advantages of this hole by attacking users of Quicktime player. Unfortunately, quicktime player are most used by Firefox webbrowsers. This event, ofcourse, bring firefox developers into a head ache while they are trying to campaign a slogan "Safe Browsing".

Apple in this matter tried to resolve the problem quickly by releasing new patch. Now, quicktime users not need to worry about this problems. But until when? nobody will know!

2007 UN Climate Change Conference in Bali

A big conference was held in Bali discussing about Climate Change. One thing that interest me is the discussion about 5 reasons of avoiding burning forest to open new area for plantations.

Most farmers or plantations company use method of burning forest to open new area or land clearing because it is considered as the cheapest way. However, they should know the consequences in doing so.

1. Wood biomass that present in forest keeps nutrition for the land. Land clearing by burning will invoke loss of land quality to prevent erosion and water quality under the land.
2. Burning is obviously produces excessive smokes that can affect global warming.
3. Wood in forest can be used for paper materials. So, why burning them?.
4. Burning will produce excessive carbon that can affect the quality of next plantations. The result of next plantations will be greatly affected.
5. If it difficult to control the spread of fire in the area. Windy environment can spread out the fire to locations that was supposed not to be cleared.

Got Sicked 3 days ago

Whoah.... I was experiencing severe sore throat and flu last 3 days. It made me too lazy to post something. Every time I opened my Laptop and got online. I just spent time checking my emails and replied the important ones. Other than that, I was just lying down watching some tv shows or reading. The sore throat was the one killing me.

Are You an Online Gambler?

If an average time you spend on the internet is more than 4 hours/day (outside your work related tasks), then, you are an internet addict. What percentage of activities do you spend on the internet? If you are an online gambler, most probably, you spend more than 50% doing online gambling when you are online to kill your leisure time. Yeah right, you might say that playing online casinos are for fun, right?

With many online gambling sites are emerging, giving promises and even free gifts, these becoming luring sites to visit. This growing business is opening opportunities for some scammers out there to try to steal your money with unfair game. Worst case is that they steal your money and your identity like credit cards details. That is not fun at all. Thus, make sure that you put your money on trusted online gambling sites.

Pro360 is one of the online casino review sites available. The site will try to rank most online casinos by combination of Editor review and Player ratings. This makes pro360 as a fair and objective online casino reviews because the ratings are coming as well from the players who have tried the online casinos by themselves. What interest me is the bonus and certificates that the site have. This could be a major factor when deciding to put our money. We want to have more bonus to leverage the money we put. In addition, certificates are the one to make us comfortable putting our credit card details.

Where do you put your extra money for your passive or additional income?

As an ordinary worker that put effort from 8am-5pm in the office (well, sometimes up to 10pm), I tend to try to put my savings to some programs that could bring me some passive income. I have tried some HYIP (High Yield Investment Programs) Online and got scammed twice. The good thing is that I only invested there around $10-$50 to test their program. Now, I never trust those HYIP Online anymore. If some of you really get good return, then, good luck to you and stay safe.

I tried also playing FOREX and it really consumed my time to search and monitor the progress. Being greedy, I lost about $1000+ in the process. Finally I stopped playing it myself and put my money in managed fund handled by FXCM. So far, I got a return of 20%-50% a year. Not much? At least I am not wasting my time looking at the chart, news, and reports.
Similar to FOREX, I tried to understand options trading. Option trading is a derivative of stocks trading. I signed up for a virtual trading in OptionsXpress and learn it by myself. In the end, I stopped it as well because it consumed my time to monitor the news and movements everyday. I have read that some people could only spend 2 hours per day and get profit out of that. Well, may be I am not smart enough or discipline enough to just spend 2 hours per day and understand the positions.

From 2 years ago, I put some of my money in mutual funds. I choose big investment houses like Schroders and Fortis to manage my funds. Why? Because it is easier for me to trust them as compared to small investment houses that have just started up and promising big returns. So far, they gave me return around 30%-50% a year for my aggressive portfolio.

Please take note that even I have benefits some passive incomes from forex managed funds and mutual funds, there are NOT risk free. Those kind of investments involve risk of losing money. They put it clearly on the form when I signed up. Thus, only put your additional money that you can risk on those types of investments.

How about you? What programs did you join to bring you additional income or passive income? Please share it with me by putting in comments?

Choosing Your Web Hosting

I have been using web hosting services for more than 5 years now. Back then, I was not really look for hosting companies outside my country (Indonesia) because the difficulty in term of payments. I started to rent a hosting space for as low as 10MB just to host my tiny sites with low costs. The first feature that I look is always a reliable tech supports because I did not know much about technical things. This helped me a lot when installing some script and creating some cron jobs.

Time passed by and Paypal accepted Indonesia to send and receive money. This opened an opportunities for me to choose more webhosting companies with competitive prices. The disadvantages is that some reviews I read is not updated nor objective. Once, I bought a hosting space with very low prices ($1/month for 1G space) and it had a good review. Unfortunately, the reviews were kind of old and I had problem with the hosting company. Their responds to the support ticket that I submitted took days. This was a headache in my part when I wanted to install some new scripts and had problems. Other than that, the hosting was ok to host my simple html or php sites.

Based on this experience, it is always better to research more about your web hosting company before you finally choose them. Try to submit ticket or email them or chat with their live support to know their response time before buying the hosting. In addition, there are a lot of hosting review or hosting directory sites available. One of them is webhostingchoice.com . Try to look some tips to find the cheap web hosting there. I like a sentence of

“Just because a host is cheap does not mean that you will receive 'cheap' service, but you must be careful.”

Christmas is coming

Although it is just 6 November now, I need to think a little bit of Christmas gift ideas for my parents, brothers, and some of my friends. Why so early? because I would not want to be in rush for my Christmas shopping in December. You must have experience the crowded store during December. In addition, the most important is that I do not want to miss someone in my list.

Sometime, it is safer to give shop gift cards. This will be a gift certificate that my relatives or friends can used to buy any products they like in under the shop on the gift cards. Of course, I need to give the popular gift cards like Home Depot, JC Penney, Bloomingdale's, etc. Another reason to give a gift cards is that it is easy to handle and send because some of them are gift card online that you could send through email.

Now, I need to start building my list as not to forget my relatives and friends for Christmas gifts. Well, it means that I need to start to save my money from now :D

Borobudur Temple – The biggest Buddhist temple in Indonesia

Borobudur temple located in the Jogjakarta city on central Java and it is the biggest Buddhist temple in Indonesia. Some archaeologists believe that Borobudur temple was abandoned during 14th century following the fall of Buddhist in Central Java and Javanese stated to convert to Islam. It was then that Borobudur was discovered by Sir Thomas Raffles, the British ruler of Java in 1814. Since then, the Borobudur has undergone some restorations and was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I have been 3 times went to Borobudur temple and I was always amazed on how many tourist (both local can foreign) to appreciate the structures and reliefs of the temple.

A quote from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borobudur:

The monument comprises six square platforms topped by three circular platforms, and is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. A main dome is located at the center of the top platform, and is surrounded by seventy-two Buddha statues seated inside perforated stupa.

The monument is both a shrine to the Lord Buddha and a place for Buddhist pilgrimage. The journey for pilgrims begins at the base of the monument and follows a path circumambulating the monument while ascending to the top through the three levels of Buddhist cosmology, namely, Kamadhatu (the world of desire); Rupadhatu (the world of forms); and Arupadhatu (the world of formless). During the journey, the monument guides the pilgrims through a system of stairways and corridors with 1,460 narrative relief panels on the wall and the balustrades.

97e3613 contest result s so far

I joined 97e3613 SEO contest to understand a little bit how to rank high in SERP. It is easy to monitor keyword 97e3613 because not so many sites or blogs are having this keyword. Well, now there are a lot and makes the 97e3613 contest challenging. It is also an opportunity for me to monitor and see how the movement in SERP for 97e3613.

I put a post about 97e3613 on Oct 18 and went straight ahead taking position no 1 in google SERP. It stayed number 1 only for 2-3 days because afterwards many people are joining the contest and my position is keep on moving down.

A week after I read that a person has been registering a domain using 97e3613 as 97e3613 Ltd(I do not put a link as he/she got a link already in my blog comments about 97e3613) as keyword. He or she is putting also 97e3613.html and a lot of words related to 97e3613. I am not sure if he/she did it to join the contest or not. Anyway, This resulted into no 1 in google SERP for 97e3613 keyword. Even until today, that website is still no 1 even if he/she not updating like anymore. It seems that static website overtake blogs so far since that static site mentions a lot about 97e3613 keywords. Blog post with little 97e3613 keyword can overtake that static page, but only for several days until 97e3613 Ltd overtake again no 1 position. Well, this is just my observation as of today, we will see how it goes in the end of contest to know better what factors bring up a site or blog rank high in a certain keyword.

Review on Top USA Online Casinos Website

Top USA online casinos is not just an ordinary online gambling website. It provides informations specially for US players to choose right online casinos.

It would be better if the statement "Reviews of Online Casinos that Accept
US Players." is modified a little bit to make it more stand out. Just to inform visitor right away that the website is about giving information for Best Online Casinos. Most of the time, people are very careful in choosing online poker or casino website. If it is sometime unknown, they will close the window immediately. I am sure that the owner of Top USA online casinos does not want to be mistaken as another online casinos website affiliates.

Overall, the website is clean in design so that readers can read the whole informations without distraction. I like that the webmaster opens new window or tab every time I click on the banner. This way, I could be able to refer back to where I was reading when I clicked on the banner. Here's the site on the site that I review on my blogpost http://www.topusaonlinecasinos.com/

Rain is nothing! It doesn’t make me sick! I just need $1

When I was traveling by car in the city, the rain started to drops. I was stucked in the traffic and watching out from the window of my car. Not long from the time where the rain started, I saw the children were running out from the small alleys on the side of the main road. They were running with a closed umbrella on the hand.

They are what we call “Umbrella Jockey” in our city. They bring an umbrella and lend it to someone who needs it at the cost of $0.1 - $0.5. People usually borrow the umbrella and paid it just to pass by from building to building. Or just to go to the taxi from the building terrace without getting wet. The children will follow the person under the rain.

What interest me is how the children seem do not care when they are totally wet under the rain. I always remember when I was child that my mom always told me not to play on the rain because it can make me sick. But these children, they seemed not to care. The rain is nothing for them; it will not make them sick. They just need $1 before the rain stops!

My Blog got PageRank (PR) 4

I did not realize that my blog now has PR4. I just read in the forum that Google is finally uploading the PR data to most data centers recently to update all PRs. After reading the forum, I checked my blog. Surprisingly for me, I got PR4 :D

To those who still does not know what PR is, you can try reading it at wikipedia page rank. The summary is that the higher your PR, the higher your popularity in term of Google Page Rank algorithm. For some webmaster, PR means nothing! The important is site traffic and how the traffic converts into cash. Well, they are right. But I am personally happy this this PR update because it means something for a beginner like me who just started to make this blog 3 months ago.

So, what did I do for the last 3 months to have my PR increased from PR0 to PR4?

1. I did exchange links to related websites or blogs. Many said that exchanging link with related site with higher PR will surely increase my PR. But I did not find many of high PR blogs wanted to exchange links with my PR0 blog. So, I did exchanges with mostly PR0 as well. Some are kind enough to give me link from their high PR blogs.

2. I put comments on blogs with DOFOLLOW and high PR. They remove the NOFOLLOW attribute because they believe to give rewards to pass a little PR juice to commentators. Ofcourse, do not spam the comments. I always read their posts and only comment when I understand the topics and wanted to comment. In the end, I kept coming to their sites and becoming their loyal readers. We became friends. One of them even put a post link to my site. Thanks mates. My blog is also now has DOFOLLOW attribute.

My task now to keep and even increase my blog PR further. So, those are the two major things that I did the last 3 months. Nothing specials and nothing fancy. I am sure you can do the same :D

Unique Idea where the Lowest Unique Bid Wins

Online bidding is becoming so popular in the internet. Even for small prices of products, you can find it on the online bidding or online Sweepstake. The reason of bidding becoming so popular is because it simple follows the rule of supply and demands. When the supply is rare and the demand is high, it will receive more bids with higher price.

But have you heard in online bidding where the lowest bid wins? It is true, in Bid4Prizes, the lowest bidder will win the prices. So, what is the catch? No catch at all. One thing that you should remember that your lowest bid should be unique. For example, if there are two people bid for Apple I-Phone for $1, then the system will look for the next price which is $2. If there are only 1 person bid for $2, then he/she is the winner. It is so easy to bid or can I say “play”. You might get Free gifts also.

Did I say Apple I-Phone? Yes, the products for bidding are not cheap and low quality products. You can even see cars, High Definition TV, and any other electronics, vacation packages, and Cash prize for bidding. If you still do not understand the concept of reverse-auction game, try to look the 2-minute video tutorial in Bid4Prizes.

Finishing the basic learning to create WP theme

Ok! Now I have finished the tutorials on WP theme, and below is the results. Nothing to be proud of because of its simplicity. But I am proud to myself that finally I got motivated to start learning it step by step. The print screen below is the theme without single image/graphic incorporated. It is just pure coding of colors. I will try to learn designing it with better graphics once I now the basic codes now.

In the process of learning to code the theme, I also learn the basics of php and css styling. I think I love the css styling process instead of table format that the old html used to have. With css styling, I could be more imaginative and easily modify the layout of website or WP blog theme.

Next step for me is to design WP theme using photoshop and code if after finishing the design. I challenge myself to finish them in 2 week aside my regular tasks at work and chores at home :D. The count starts today!

Eat well before you travel

It seems like a usual tips that our parents tell us before we go on travel. But today, I experience the pain myself because not eating well before traveling by car. And the worst thing is that I am only traveling in the city!!!

Yup, I never thought that traveling in the city could be such pain in the ass. It was really happening to me yesterday. I needed to visit some areas in the field and I did not take my breakfast seriously. We went from one place to another by car. What makes it different was that the road is not paved yet. It is just land streets that makes our cars bumping all the way along our travels. The first hour of travel was a nightmare. I started to feel a headache and an ill felling on my stomach. Finally, I decided to tell the driver to stop over and have some food. But I think I was too late, after eating and rest a while, I still feel the headache and stomach problems.

Whoaahh.. I had the feeling of this even for the rest of the day. The good thing is that I feel better today when I woke up. Piuhhh!

97e3613 means. Is it true?

EDIT: one of the comments from this blogpost told me that 97e3613 is the largest number found by 97e3613 Ltd.

Maybe I should re-read it again in the morning, not now when I am already sleepy reading about that magic number 97e3613 :P

97e3613 results as of 31 October

EDIT: Results as of 31 October can be seen at my blogpost 97e3613 contest results so far. I got kicked-out from the fist page. Let us see if the cheat treat below works (by puting more 97e3613 keyword):

97e3613 keyword populating

This 97e3613 is only a test 97e3613 trying to put more 97e3613 keyword in the blogpost 97e3613. The 97e3613 Ltd is still in 97e3613 no 1 for SERP. Even 97e3613 is static site 97e3613 but it has a lot of 97e3613 keyword. Even in 97e3613 the domain and as well as 97e3613 file name.

Watching Transformer the Movie

I know that this Transformer movie has been long launched. Poor me that I just got a chance to watch it today. I remember 3 months ago when it was showing in the movie house near my house, it was jam packed with a long queue. I was deciding to watch other movie.

Today my friend came and brought with her this Transformer DVD. We were watching with some snacks (of course). The movie was great in general. The graphics were fantastic. I just confuse sometime which of which when they were fighting because the movements were so fast and the robots looked the same from some angle.

What sticked to my mind now is when the one of the autobots (I forgot his name) was fighting against Megatron. When the autobot was about to loose and was grabbed by Megatron, he kept saying "You want a piece of me, You want a piece of me" while firing at Megatron. Megatron said "No, I want two pieces of you" and ripping the autobot into two. Aww.. that's sad :(

Paperclip Figurine

I am not the person who like to put figurines in my house. But this paperclip Figurine caught my attention when it was on display in small store in Singapore. I like the idea of making this figure from paper clips. Well, the original idea was to make the figurine from the used paper clips. As you know that trough time, the paper clips could not fasten the paper anymore and people will replace with new paper clips. These old paper clips are then collected and strigthen up to make it ready for figure collections.

But in those stores, the artists have been started to make paper clips figurine from new paper clips. Well, you can not blame him/her because maybe it is more difficult to find used paper clips :P

I need to re-start my Asset Management

A long way ago, I have read the book of Robert Kiyosaki. It opened my eyes on how he gives an example of asset management. The major one is that he does not consider a property as an asset unless it gives back money from rent. We usually think that a property is an asset because it increase the value over the time. But we sometimes do not realize that the increase of values does not bring us any profit when we bought it using loans and the interest is higher. Not to mention that other expenses that we need to pay monthly or yearly for the property asset. Of course that the real estate agent will tell you the property is a good investment for your asset management. But try to do the computation yourself before taking any decisions.

In the book, I read how he manage the asset. It is not using any asset management software. In fact, I can do it in Excel. You do not need to attend asset management training to understand the concepts.

The bad thing was when I started to put some of my asset in my digital asset management excel, I got busy and loose track of it after several months. Well, busy should not be a reason.. because what i need is proper time management. Now, I am going to be back and restart my personal asset management.

Portable DVD player

The last few long travels by car at night, I got bored! Simply because I just sit at the back seat and I could not enjoy the side seeings. This is why I am thinking now to have a Portable player. I had searched quite some time to find the model that will suit me.

At first, I liked the idea of small screen Player with hard disk inside so it would come handy along with my travel. However, I realized that most of my movies are in DVD. It would take time to transfer all of them into hard disk. It would be difficult only to select some movies to transfer because I like to watch different movie genres depending on the mood. In addition, my friend suggested me a portable DVD player for practicality because my family can use them as well during daily traffic routines in the car.

Well, I am thinking now to buy portable 10 inch DVD player. The screen is not so small so that I can enjoy the movie during my trips. I will just bring with me my DVD album for different movie genres. Player that comes with TV tuner could be the best choice so that I can watch local news as well.

Vitamin Supplements or Energy Drink?

Today, my friends and I hang out in a nice coffee shop while having friendly conversations. The topic went to whether it is better to have vitamin supplements or energy drinks? Well, that shows you that we did not have much topics to discuss, huh? hehehe.

My friend was telling me that he used to have energy drinks only when he needs to stay awake to finish some work. He can stay up 3 days straight without sleeping because he continuously consume energy drinks. Wow... that is something! I hope the quality of works is as good as the effect of energy drinks on him. He does not take it regularly because he is afraid of the "unconfirmed" side effects.

Vitamins supplements, on the other hand, is something that he takes regularly. But he makes sure that the ingredients are somehow natural.

That natural thing raise a question to myself. How do we know that the ingredients are natural as companies trying to declare their vitamin supplements as natural. Well, the simple guide below that I found in organic customer might help. Company can cheat by putting the descriptions below. That is why it is important as well to buy from the trusted company.

How can I read product labels to be able to determine if a particular vitamin or supplement is truly natural or synthetic?

If a vitamin/supplement product label uses words like "Food State", "Food Source", "Food Base", “All natural” , or “Organic”, can I assume that it truly is what it claims to be? There are quite a few companies that use this kind of labeling, but many of them are not being clear on their labels and other literature that they use a medium of fermented or mixture of foods that have been spiked with synthetic vitamins. Many products contain synthetic vitamins which are put into our supplements even though the label says "all natural." One easy way to tell is to look at the RDA. If the potency is higher than anything you would find in nature (example 1000% Daily Recommended Allowance of Vitamin C per serving), the product contains synthetically produced ingredients, no matter what the producer of that product might claim.

It is all coincident when I got to meet the human's blog author. It is just so happened that I am in his country of resident when I put a comment on his blog. We met, talking about life and of course discussing some opportunities in market niche.

Travel to Vatican City

As you all know that the Vatican City is famous for its magnificent St Peter’s Basilica. Near St Peter’s stands the Vatican Palace, the Pope’s residence. There are a lot of historical buildings to visit there.

However, make sure you read a little bit about the history of Vatican City. You will enjoy more when you get there. You will know what is the story behind each places you visited there instead of just admiring the architecture of the buildings.

The main church is amazingly huge. I was lucky that I can get a good picture of the light passes through the window. Just lucky to have a good timing.

Does Money Equal Happiness?

The truth is that we human beings require each time more that we already have. So, rich people complain that money has stolen their happy days and those who are not so financially fortunate say that only money could complete their life, that they would surely get everything else on their own if only they had the means to do that.

The truth lies somewhere in the middle.

It is not accurate to say money brings happiness, because it doesn’t. But at the same time one can not claim money has nothing to do with it. We are never really happy, maybe just for the brief moment when we reach our purposes or complete one of our dreams. But then, very soon after that, a new totally different problem or desire arises to take that happiness away. It’s human nature to be unsettled and uncertain and it is not a bad thing.

Whether we want to admit it or not, we all are happy at certain moments in life, but all we say is that we are never happy. There’s always something to inflict with our self-assurance or way of living that makes us nervous, sad or depressed.

And money is indeed one of those factors. Many people need it just to pay for food and shelter and they are happy if it’s enough to provide just that. But others, and I’m not talking here about rich people, they already have some living assurance and need more money for other desires or things they want to buy. And the list can go on and on as we climb social and financial levels one at a time. Everyone wants something, and once they have it it’s not enough or just too much and too stressful to deal with.

In fact, we should be happy just with what we have and stop thinking about money so much. Money is an important factor in achieving stability and eventually even happiness because we let it, we even push it up to that pedestal. Money does not equal happiness, it’s even worse than that: because money exists happiness is harder to reach.

But then again, if not for money, we’d come up with something else that we would let interfere with our life and cause us an infinite diversity of problems…It’s just human nature.

4 Signs You Might Get Sacked

The end of the year might often bring personal revising for many companies. The immediate consequence will be firing people. So that a similar managerial decision will not get to you unprepared, here are some signals you should watch out for.

1. The consultant.
The consultant is that person that comes to reevaluate and to make plans for the distribution of personnel. Sometime, his job can be to tell who stays and who goes from that moment on. His presence is a sign you should have your CV at hand – you will have to convince him of your abilities in the new created structures or, if the situation requires, you will need to convince another employer of your professional abilities.

2. Closed-door meetings.
It can often happen over night; in a department where the boss used to apply the open-doors policy and all of a sudden he appears to be all the time in meeting with his superiors, there for sure something different is going to happen. You can think of asking him directly if they are going to take measures of reducing the number of employees. Experts and practice show that you won’t get a clear answer. There are managers that denied this possibility in front of a large group of people, although later it was proven to be true.

3. A new boss.
If the department you are working n is coordinate by a new manager, then it is highly possible that he will bring along his own team – people with whom he had worked before and therefore trusts. Maybe you professional level is high and no one can argue with that, but the new boss doesn’t know you abilities. This situation doesn’t occur all the times ( the top-manager can accept him in the new position on the condition that he keeps the old team) but then the decision of the manager is heading to this direction, the replacements will not be made at once, but throughout a longer period of time.

4. Change in responsibilities.
Some experts say that if your responsibilities change over short periods of time, without a prior evaluation (that normal brings decisions linked to promotion or salary rise), and the new position is presented as a true opportunity, but you know very well that no one wants that job, then you should keep your eyes wide open. if, on the contrary, you are given less and less work and it seems as if no project is for you or a whole bunch of meeting you would be interested in are organized without your knowing, then maybe it is time to invest in the perfect suit for a job interview.

Funny Picture - El Rastro Flea Market

When I was visiting Madrid for a short time, one of the places I visited is El Rastro Flea Market. My friend who live in Madrid told me that it will be a good experience to visit El Rastro that is open only in Sunday morning and finish the shoppings with couple of beers around the area. At least, this is what he usually does to kill time with his friends.

One thing that took my attention was when I found a beggar along the El Rastro market. The beggar had several signs where people put money on. The signs are "PARA CERVEZA", "PARA WHISKY", "PARA RESACA". Well, I dont understand much Spanish words but my friend told me that it means "FOR BEERS", "FOR WHISKY", "FOR RESACA". What an idea to ask money in the street :D

I took my cellphone and took a picture of it. All of the sudden, this guy brought out another sign and showed it to me "PARA FOTO... EUR50". Whuahaha... I wanted to took the picture as well of this sign but I was afraid that this guy would get mad if I took another picture. Also, I did not want to pay EUR50 only for this. It is better to spend my EUR to treat my friends who have been accompanying me around in Madrid. In any case, I got a funny picture I already.

Trip to Sukabumi, West Java – Water rafting and War game

Sukabumi is one of the places that often missed by the tourists when they visit Indonesia, especially West Java. Sukabumi is only 2 hours drive from Jakarta. To tell you honestly, I also almost missed visiting Sukabumi :P.

I was asked by my friends to visit Sukabumi 2 years ago. We went there by car from Jakarta. The side views was amazing if you if nature. By the way, we contacted an agent first before coming to Sukabumi to arrange the water rafting that we wanted to try. We did not plan to spend overnight, so we just booked for the facilities to do water rafting.

We got at the resort place in Sukabumi around 10 in the morning, the instructor has been ready for us and taught the basic water rafting and some survival basic in case of emergency. We rode up a jeep to reach the river and started water rafting. Whoooah, we enjoyed it so much. We rode down the river for about 12 km. Not very long, but good enough for starters like us to enjoy. It was a nice experience.

After finish water rafting, we still have time before leave Sukabumi. So, we tried War game as well. I could never imagine that in the war game you fell like a real war. I was becoming so afraid to walk or run in open area. I was hiding behind the trees or bushes. Just crawling around to reach the flags of the other team. I knew that I have limited bullets so I need to use it wisely. Well, in the end my team lose because the other team had a great sniper I must say. Even if my friend was hiding under the bushes, when he was raising up his head to look around. Baaaannng, his helmet was covered by red color due to red painted bullet.

Travel light – Bring your sports towel

I like to travel especially doing some outdoor activities. The problem that I used to encounter was when it came to pack my things. I like to bring most of my outdoor gadgets to enable me to do more activities in the places I visited. But as you know that traveling outdoor should be having your back pack as light as possible since I will involve walking a lot while carrying my back pack.

One thing that seems to be ignored by us and could bring us a lot of hassle is a towel. Have you been in the situation where you are confused to bring a big towel or a small towel? You want to bring a big towel because it will dry you up fast after taking a bath or after swimming from the beach. On the other hand, you do not want to have a hassle bringing back a wet large towel in your back pack that will add up to the hassle.

Well, the good thing is that you can find many sports towel that could resolve your problems. I bought this sport towel 2 years back and it helped me a lot. This towel is made from special material that can absorb a great amount of water considered its small size. I just need to squeeze the towel to dry it up and use it again to dry myself. It comes also with a plastic hard cover that I do not need to bother to put it on my back pack. You can see how small the towel is. By the way, the watch there is just for a comparison for the size of the towel :D.

Trip to Vigan - North of Philippines

Vigan is considered one of the heritage city in the Philippines. I visited the town 5 years ago with my friends. Yeah... it is a long time age. But I bet that the city center buildings do not change much because they want to preserve the old style that the Spanish build hundred years back.

I like the city as it gave me a different ambiance. I can just spend hours walking around the city looking at the different styles of old buildings. And people are still living under them. Well, mostly are store now. If you get tired walking, you can always stop by in the big round about near the city center to get some drinks an local delicacies like empanada. They offer different kind of foods there. What I like is the "cornic". It is a dried corns. Some are added with flavors like cheese, garlic, etc. It just a good snack to enjoy while relaxing

Why it is better to reserve your Hotel Online?

Most of you do not take in detailed plan for your vacation in holiday seasons. You just focus on the place to go and save money in order to buy the tickets and all the accommodations needed for the vacation. When the holiday season is near and you want to pay for the ticket or make hotel reservation you are surprised because the prices hike during the holiday seasons.

I recommend that you plan you vacation in details. In details mean that you know exactly when to go and when to come back. File your leaves in the office once you get the dates because everyone else file the vacation leaves. Having a dates will benefit you a lot when booking a hotel. You can book 1 month early or more and enjoy the benefits you can get.

Just take a look at various Hotel Discounts. You can find on that sites many promos prices available in different hotels in your destination place. These promos are seldom offered when you come right away to the Hotel. Why? Because the hotel knows that if you come straight to the hotel, most of the time, you are desperate to find hotel. So.. prices become less priority for you. The reason also that such company (in this case: "Hotel Reservation" ) can offer lower prices because they are specialized in hotel reservation and vacation packages. That means that the "Hotel Reservation" and can bring tons of guests to the hotels. Thus, hotels are lowering the prices to attract more customers through "Hotel Reservation" site.

Aside from the hotel, it also offers different selections of Motels and Resorts. So, what you need to do is entering the searching criteria in the main page and the site will give you a lot of choices from their updated hotel database collections.

Sofa Bed, It is so relaxing

Aside from surfing the net, I like to read as well. That means that I need to have a good ambiance to enjoy my reading. Recently, I bought this sofa bed and put it in my reading room. Whoaaaa… I really enjoyed it. The price serves the purpose. It levels up my reading experience… hehehe… Maybe I am too exaggerating the situation here.

Most of the time now, the sofa is on bed position because I like to stretch my legs while reading.

Since I am not living in a big house with many rooms, this will serve as well as a bed for my friend if they spend a night in my apartment. Sorry friends…., you need to bare with me until I can save up to buy bigger house :D

Stressed Out? Try Wrist Ball

Most people use this wrist ball to strengthen their arms, especially arms grip. I think trainers in tennis and other racket sports recommend this wrist ball for exercise. The size is small and easy to use. I mean, you can do it as you like... while watching TV, while relaxing in the sofa, or even while traveling. But I personally used it for relieve my stress.

Maybe you have heard about the stress ball. What you need to do is to squeeze the ball. What I like about this ball is that you need to maintain the rhythm to make the inner ball always turns. I don’t know what brand my wrist ball is. I just bought it a year ago along with my kettler ball.

I must admit that at fist, it is difficult to start the inner ball always rotating. But once you get the rhythm, you can keep it spinning all day if you have the strength. You can pace the speed and strength as you like. The more you move the wrist ball circularly, the more resistance you will get. In the end, you have to grasp it more firmly.

Turning this ball and keep the rhythm is what makes my stress gone. This is something interesting you need to try other than your stress relieving method you have.

Unique Bidding Website - What an idea!

Recently, I got my external disk by bidding it on the eBay. Well, with the internet technology nowadays, we can just bid for anything we want online. I am sure that you have heard eBay.

But have you heard about bidding the lowest price and you will be the winner? I was told by my friend about this unusual bidding site that give as well Free gifts. At first, I could not understand the concept of this website. But, I viewed the 2 minute video explanation on the main page. It was very easy to understand.

Some might say that it is like a Sweepstake. But for me, it is like a nice-easy game to play and in the end you can win products or even Cash price.

In a nut shell, people will bid a low price on the product. After the bidding closes, the person who has the lowest unique bid will be the winner and the product. If it still confuses you, can the video explanation yourself on the main page of Bid4Prizes.

Hand Made Souvenir from my friend

In one of my last month posts, I had a trip to Sahara with my friend. He was born in a small town located near Sahara. That was the reason we did not spend a night in Sahara because we could travel back to the small city and spend the night in my friend's house.

His father was still living in the unique house build (I do not know exactly when) a loooong time ago. Aside from farms as the source of living, they also made hand made souvenirs to be sold in the city for tourists.

My friend gave me one of the souvenirs. I really appreciated it. Thanks man!

Finally my hard disk broke down - Put under air condition and it worked

Well, this is not a good story to tell. I noticed 3 months ago that my hard disk in the laptop started to make a rattle noise. This was quite noisy that usual. Starting from that day I planned to back up the important data every week.

As expected, a week after I encountered the "blue screen" while working with my laptop. I needed to re-start the computer and everything goes well. I might say that almost every week I encountered "blue screen" minimum 1 time.

Just last week, the hard disk finally broke. My laptop did not want to start and kept on showing the blue screen. I was not very surprised with this as I expected it to happen even 3 months ago. I just a little bit concern about last week data. It was not a big deal but I just hope that I could copy the last one before changing into the new hard disk. I tried to restart for more than 20 times but still not showing any good results. The Windows just did not want to load. Even when I tried a safe mode, somewhere in the middle, it showed again the "blue screen".

As time passed, I finally decided to stop trying. I unscrew the laptop and removed the hard disk. I decided to continue putting new hard disk and installing software the next day. To my shock, the old hard disk is very very very hot. And as you can see in the picture, the round part (where the disc is rotating) has been in BLACK color. It meant that the disc kept scratching the cover until the cover burnt up.

I was thinking may the frictions happened because the disc has been expanded due to heat and touches the cover. Desperately to give a last try, I put the hard disk under the air condition and left it all night long. I just hope that the cold temperature will shrink the disc a little bit as not to touch the cover (which were making a noisy rattle sound).

Guess what? in the morning, when I put the old hard disk back in the laptop, IT WORKED. The rattle noises were lessen. Without delaying too much, I copied all the necessary data. I did browsing also for about 2 hours until I hear again the rattle sound started to appear. I finally decided to turn off the computer, throw the old hard disk and put new hard disk.

Now, I am working with new hard disk. Until now, I did not know if I just lucky at that time or in deed, there is a effect by putting your hard disk under the air condition. For those desperate people having the same problem, there is nothing to loose to try this. Just don't put your hard disk inside your refrigerator :D

Charisma Building Tips

I read this article and found it very interesting. The points mentioned are common and can be easily understood by us. We just take them for granted.

If you want to become successful you would be better served by having a charisma makeover than you would be by having a total physical makeover.

Why is charisma important?

Becoming successful always involves other people. Those people may be clients or staff or partners or mentors or your power group or people you network with, but whoever they are, the greater your charisma the easier success will be for you.

Charisma is often believed to be a natural charm that some have and some missed out on but it is not true. Charisma is learned. There are several components that combine together to produce charisma and if you work to improve each of those components your personal charisma will improve substantially.

Let's look at five of the components of charisma.

The Smile

Charismatic people generally smile more often and more genuinely than average people. This smile is not a fake "politician" smile but is a reflection of a warm, positive personality. They are genuinely happy to be alive and they have a positive view on what the world has to offer them.

The Voice

Charismatic people speak with confidence and sincerity. The tone of their voice conveys that inner confidence and inspires others to follow them. Their voice is expressive and their topics of conversation are interesting. People want to listen to charismatic people.

The Body Language

The body language of charismatic people is congruent with what they are saying. If they are talking about happy, joyful feelings they look happy. If they are talking about serious issues they look serious. Their body language always matches and compliments their theme.

Charismatic people are masters of mirroring, matching, pacing and leading. These are body language techniques that help build rapport and then control that rapport so that the other person's sense of comfort is being controlled in such a way that they feel more comfortable when they fall in line with what the charismatic person is proposing.

The Communication Skills

Charismatic people use communication skills so well that other people feel more important or more valuable when they are around the charismatic person.

Charismatic people understand that charisma is all about making the other person feel better, more valuable and happier. They achieve this to the extent that other people start to feel better each time they see the charismatic person, even from a distance.

Much of this is achieved by knowing when and how to listen and when and how to speak. These are skills that can be learned and should be learned by anyone who is serious at becoming successful.

The Passion

Charismatic people are passionate people.

Most people are ordinary. Their lives lack passion and direction. They are going nowhere, living the same year over and over again.

When ordinary people are put together with passionate people who have good communication skills, then the ordinary person gets a lift from the charismatic person's passion and confidence. They feel that by going along for the ride with this person their own dull life will be enhanced and they will be more important.

Charismatic people become the leaders. They set the trends. They have the inspired goals and sense of purpose that others lack.

Spend some time giving yourself a charisma makeover and success will suddenly become a whole lot easier for you.

Trip to Sahara

sahara desert

If you read my post about my filla shoes, now it has traveled to Sahara desert. This is my second trip to Sahara and I still enjoyed it so much. Nothing much to do there but I fell good just by walking on the desert.

This time I and my friends decided not to sleep over there. We just relax and drink a tea while sitting on the sand. It was difficult in the beginning to make a fire from dried branches because of windy ambients. After 15 mins, we finally were able to light the fire and enjoy a hot tea :D

sun set at saharaWe stayed in the sand until sun set and headed back to the town.

Paraglide View

This is one of the experiences that I will never forget. I tried this paraglide when I visited West Java. My friend brought me to a mountain area around 40 km from Bandung. I was told that there will be an instructor who will be my paraglide buddy. That relieves me since I never know how to handle this kind of things.

Actually, I did nothing during take off and landing. My instructor did all the job :D I just participated by running during take off, handle the bar little bit during flying, and offer my butt for a butt landing instead of proper landing.

During the rest of time we were on the air, I enjoyed the view and took pictures. It was a moment of silent that I really enjoyed on the air.

Today I bought this HP Photosmart C3100 "All in one". I am not soooo gadget person but I just need scanner and printer for my personal stuff. Since I got a good deal, I get this device. The design is slim for such a device with printer and scanner in one.

As usual, we all started by installing the driver for this device. The product comes with a CD contains a lot of software. Just imagine that I need to spend more than 30 minutes to install the software and necessary drivers for this HP Photosmart C3100 to work. Well, I can blame also my laptop that is quite slow nowadays. Maybe I need to change laptop as well.

In the end, installing more than 30 minutes for all the softwares that are included are worth waiting. The software includes all necessary tools to work with images, starting from photo album, editing, etc. When I opened the first time this HP Photosmart essential software, it scans all the pictures in my computer and create indexes for future use.

How to eliminate spicy taste from your mouth without water

Have you ever faced a situation where you accidentally eat spicy food or snack and you can not find water to sooth the spicy taste from your tongue?

This usually happens when you are in the car and tried to eat some snack without water. Or it just happen that the water you have if not enough to eliminate the spicy odor in your mouth.

I am a fond of spicy food and I usually eliminate the spicy feeling in my mouth by drinking hot water. Yes... hot water, not cold water. Cold water is just relieving you in a while, after that you will feel the spicy sensation again. In the end, you end up with drinking a lot of cold water. Another way to remove this spicy taste in the mouth is by eating something sweet. I do not really like this idea because I feel a weird taste eating sweets after finishing my spicy food.

I discovered this technique without water accidentally when I was eating sooooo hot food and I was running out of drinking water in the car. To make it worst, I was trapped in the traffic jam. Then... what is the technique?

1. Close your mouth by making a space inside your mouth. You do this by putting your lips together but make sure that your tongue does not touch your upper and lower(inner) mouth.
2. Extrude your lips forward a little bit. Try to maintain the space inside your mouth. It is better if you this while you are away from the public or away from the mirror.. hehehe.. because you look funny.
3. This is the important step. By doing the second step, you will feel your tongue a little bit pulled back automatically. Now, contract more your tongue muscle. It is just like making your tongue squeezed and pulled back more. If you do correctly, you fell the spicy taste even more now. But do not give it up. Hold around 5 - 10 seconds and release the contraction. Repeat this step if necessary until you really feel the spicy taste gone from your tongue.

Well, I hope this technique can be beneficial for you. It never fails me. Good luck and remember to do step 2 and 3 away from the public. Happy eating spicy food!

The Facts on Stretch Marks

After reading this article below, I laugh myself. Stretch Marks are the side effect of growing too fast.. hehehe. In deed, I gained several kilo in the last months. Now, I noticed a stretch mark on my arms.

You can read the ways to prevent or remove stretch mark below. For me, I will just do a little diet. :D


Stretch marks are purplish streaks and scars that normally appear on the buttocks, hips, abdomen, breast, and arms. They are a common side effect of growing too fast. They form when the dermis (the middle elastic layer of your skin) is stretched breaking down the elasticity in your skin. As the elasticity breaks down, the skin tries to reinforce itself with collagen in the over stretched skin, thus causing stretch marks.

Factors that contribute to the formation of stretch marks are:

Heredity - some skin types are just genetically predisposed. If you mother had stretch marks, chances are you will.

Weight - excess rapid weight gain as found in pregnancy and bodybuilding or to the other degree excessive weight loss.

Skin type - Some skin types are dryer than others thus having less elasticity, while well-hydrated skin tends to have more elasticity.

Removal and prevention of stretch marks:

Surgical methods - Dermabrasion, chemical peel, and advancement in laser treatments can be used to treat stretch marks. As with any cosmetic surgery, age, skin type, and even diet will influence the results.

Lotions and Crèmes - Advancements have been made with over the counter crèmes. If you are pregnant or body building, consult with your doctor to begin a preventative treatment for stretch marks.

Diet - Maintain healthy hydrated skin by drinking plenty of water. Hydrated skin keeps your skin soft, supple, and less likely to develop stretch marks. Caffeinated coffee, tea, and soda tend to dehydrate the skin leaving you more vulnerable to stretch marks. Eat foods that promote skin health such as foods high in zinc, vitamins A, C, and D, and protein rich foods.

Remember that not all stretch marks are created equal. They age and heal differently depending on the skin type, heredity, diet, and hydration. In time, they will fade, but the best advice is to maintain healthy skin, which will minimize the effects of stretch marks if they should occur.
