[WSK] Growing Coffee on Jeju Island

Love for coffee is getting pandemic these days. You can find a coffee shop in every block of a sizable office district. Some people go so far as buying espresso machines and other coffee gadgets to furnish in their own homes. (Well, being one of those crazy coffee lovers myself, I am just being envious.)

 

Coffee is a highly sensitive plant, requiring specific growing conditions. It grows in subtropical regions where the temperature stays above 10 degrees Celsius even during winter. That’s why farming coffee has been mostly considered out of the question in Korea.

 

Well, Ms. Roh Jin-Yi doesn’t accept that.


<Most of the world’s coffee is grown in a band around the equator from 25 degrees

north to 25 degrees south of the equator>
Korea’s First Coffee Farmer

The first coffee farmer in Korea, Ms. Roh has invested all her money and energy in farming coffee in a 400-pyeong (1 pyeong equals 3.3 square meters) green house in Jeju City since early 2008.

 

Despite the unfavorable conditions, even Jeju being too cold, Ms. Roh has been persistent in realizing her dream of cultivating coffee. And she has succeeded to reap enough coffee for about 10% of Jeju citizens to sample taste.

 

And last October, Ms. Roh even held the first Jeju Coffee Festival in her own coffee plantation. At the festival, there was coffee tasting, coffee drinking competitions, hands-on experience of roasting coffee beans and hand-dripping.

Hard Work, But I Love It

 

Ms. Roh is currently growing some 25,000 coffee trees in a 5,600 square meters plantation. And it is no easy job looking after those highly sensitive plants. They have to be watered twice a day (at the break of dawn and around sunset) for 3, 4 hours. A storm hits, and the fragile plants get all knocked out of their pots, and Ms. Roh has to spend many sleepless days harnessing them back in. They also need to get nutrition shots at regular, designated times.

 

Roh says she does not expect coffee farming to become a profitable business.

 

“It’s costly to keep the green house warm and it takes 3 to 5 years from germination to harvest. But I’m doing this not because I want to make money, but because I like it,” says the coffee farmer. And adds, “If I make money later, I would like to build a coffee museum,” expressing her ultimate ambition.

 

Many cheers and well wishes to her dream!

Quote of The Day

bismillah..

You already have a fully equipped laboratory in which you can work and study. Your laboratory is all around you. Your laboratory consists of human beings. This laboratory supplies you with every possible example of human action. And there is no limit to what you can learn once you see yourself as a scientist in your own lab. What’s more, there is nothing to buy. There is no rent to pay. There are no fees of any kind. You can use this laboratory as much as you like for free.

bismillah..

Someday – Nina

Someday you’ll gonna realize

One day you’ll see this through my eyes
But then i won’t even be there
I’ll be happy somewhere
Even if i can’t 

I know
You don’t really see my worth
You think your the last guy on earth
Well I’ve got news for you
I know I’m not that strong
But it won’t take long
Won’t take long

Chorus

Coz someday, someone’s gonna love me
The way, i wanted you to need me
Someday, someone’s gonna take your place
One day I’ll forget about you
You’ll see, i won’t even miss you

Someday, someday

But now
I know you can’t tell
I’m down,and I’m not do anyway
But one day these tears
They will all run dry
I won’t have to cry
Sweet goodbye

Chorus

Coz someday, someone’s gonna love me
The way, i wanted you to need me
Someday, someone’s gonna take your place
One day I’ll forget about you
You’ll see, i won’t even miss you
Someday, someday

My last skating..

This is my fourth time of skating. I don’t know what my problem is.. But my feet always get hurt, whether I bound the shoes tightly or not.

This will be my last skating I supposed. 😦

I’m not fond of this kind of physical activities… :,(

What should I do? It hurts so much.

Quote of The Day

It is well to respect the leader. Learn from him. Observe him. Study him. But don’t worship him. Believe you can surpass. Believe you can go beyond. Those who harbor the second-best  attitude are invariably the second-best doers.

Mudah Saja – So7

bismillah..

 

Mudah Saja – Sheila on 7
Lirik : Sumber
Mp3 : unduh

Tuhan aku berjalan menyusuri malam
Setelah patah hatiku
Aku berdoa semoga saja
Ini terbaik untuknya

Dia bilang, “Kau harus bisa seperti aku”
“Yang sudah biarlah sudah”

Mudah saja bagimu
Mudah saja untukmu
Andai saja cintamu seperti cintaku

Selang waktu berjalan
Kau kembali datang
Tanyakan keadaanku
Kubilang, “Kau tak berhak tanyakan hidupku”
Membuatku s’makin terluka

Mudah saja bagimu
Mudah saja untukmu
Coba saja lukamu seperti lukaku

Kau tak berhak tanyakan keadaanku
Kau tak berhak tanyakan keadaanku
