Tumpukan buku APIS

Tumpukan buku APIS

Acara yg gua hadiri di Okinawa. APIS Conference 2009. Dengan berbagai topik paper yg dipresentasikan di sana. Buku di atas adalah buku berisi paper-paper yg diterima di APIS, tebel juga kan? hehe.. ada sekitar 180-an kalo gak salah, dengan rata2 panjangnya 4 halaman. Buku itu disebut “Proceeding APIS” . Beda lagi ama jurnal, kalo jurnal seleksinya lebih ketat ketimbang conference.. *kesian tuh yg Phd. Susah lolosnya..*

Okinawan

bismillah..

@please read it accompanied by this song.. Tersenyumlah.mp3  ^^

It was a great opportunity for me going abroad to Japan. To Okinawa island exactly. A beautiful and quite warm Island. Felt like home. The temperature is not as cold as here in Korea. There feels like in Puncak *a place in Java Island, Indonesia*. But sometimes the weather changes so drastically.. It was hot, but suddenly the clouds cover us, and rain falls. Felt like i was going to get a fever. But luckily I didn’t get it.

Locatio of Ryukyu Islands

Location of Ryukyu Islands

It is located near Taiwan as you can see.

We traveled to a few places there, Japanese restaurants, botanical garden, americana street, Okinawa folks museum, Shurijo Castle  and also the Ryukyus University. I had a nice experience there.. although I didn’t have a chance to go to the famous aquarium, because I have assignment on the conference. I didn’t went to the beach too, may be because it is in winter season, not summer.

But after all it was a great vacation I had after maybe more than two year I never traveled ..hehe..

So, here are my pics.

First Lunch

First Lunch

We had our first lunch here. I didn’t capture the food shape.. 😛 But I can describe it a bit as raws food.. ewh.. hehe

I had my first raw salmon there, feel a bit fishy, but I don’t know i feel full so easily. There is also pork meat there, oh.. Okinawa is famous for it’s pork menu.. 😦 Just get rid of it and I can have my beautiful meal.

The shore reef

The shore reef

After that lunch, we went to the shore reef. There was so windy. I felt like gonna be blown away. Really, the wind blew very hard. But exciting it is.. 😉 I got a bit shot of it, it was not the perfect moment as the wave hit the reef.. so beautiful and splash some water too.. hoho… I wonder where in Indonesia is there a place like this.

botanical view

After the shore, we went to a Botanical Garden. It is like Bogor botanical garden in Indonesia I guess. It was hot there. But suddenly rain.. ewh.. The picture up there is a moment before the clouds covered us. A nice view after I never seen this green place for a long time.. hehe.

monster from bali?

I found this statue there.. I really wonder is it imported from bali.. kkk… don’t you think so?

There are some other unique cars i’ve never seen anywhere else. I will post it next time.

The cute waitress.. oh, I didn’t get her best shot, I didn’t dare to take it anyway.. 😛

The real bento at my face, and it was delicious and make my stomach full.. haha..

And the last thing is young people playin’ skateboard, we were at americana street. I ask to my prof why does is it named as americana, he said because there are many foreign people there, including american, in Korea the place like Itaewon. As I know.. there are an airport base for america in Okinawa island, may be americana is one of the place to live of american people. We ate some takoyaki there too bought by Um*’s prof.

Our stomach were full so we went to the hotel. Rizzan Sea-Park Hotel ^^

the sea from balcony

the sea from balcony

This is the morning view of my balcony, not a very good angle, not all of the views are captured, I guess I had a better one, but I kept it for later.. 😛

A vast sea lay there.. feels so small and afraid of the mightiness. There is one of some other church in that picture, japanese people usually have their wedding there.

shurijo town view

There is a town lay there.. I don’t know the name of the town anyway.. 😛

museum guard

museum guard

There is a figure showing some minister wearing the formal suit. In the museum *where I can’t take pic* there are more detailed explanation of suit people wore on those days.

At the right pic is the real display of person *of course :P* he wear the kimono *for man* and a head ban just like in arabic culture. I become wonder whether their culture are mixed of arabian too? hm.. But really interesting. For the women, I didn’t take any pic, but they use some head cover too different from what japanese girls we usually see in the kimono. The women wore a head cover like in chinese. Zutto.. omoshiroii desu ne.. 😉

There is a pic of a girl who guard the museum too *a cute girl*. I toke although it is not permitted.. She warned me after that hidden shot..*oops..* I can’t display the pic here because it is just.. too.. too.. personal.. hehe..

shurijo castle on mini

There is a miniature view of Shurijo Castle too. With display of many servant there in the field.

A the other building, an outer building of Shurji Castle park there is a map with a terrain view too of the city surrounding the caste. The castle lies on top of the hill there.. can you see it? 😛

flying on the water

And.. here is the final travel before we went to the apis conference first day. The Folk museum of  Okinawa. A great museum, unfortunately I couldn’t take any picture there, not permitted. But before I enter the room there is a view of glass floor, I felt like flying there, walking on top of the glass.. and at below is a fake aquarium with a fake fish too.. looks brilliant.. hehe..

Okay.. that’s all for today post, I should work on again for my presentation, and.. I guess there will be second part of this. Um.. may be next week I will post.. C u then

Okinawan bus driver

bismillah..

It was still rather dark although the clock shows eight o’clock in the morning. I was in the bus near the window, still sleepy. I captured a great moment of truth. A simple thing, but really explains a lot. There was a man there, near the bus. Greeted people of morning, and gave explanation about the bus he is assigned to be driven. He said like.. *I didn’t know what he said, because it was japanese language.. :P* “Good morning, this is the bus for APIS .. bla.. bla..” . He said it continuously, he said it  politely with a smile. He said it with a bit lean posture.

A very interesting view in the morning. He said the greetings to all of people passing by. A great dedication. *sorry if the pic is dark*

It inspired me that doing something doesn’t really need any reaction. If it is a good thing, than do it. Hoping some good replies before doing something brings only disappointment at wrong replies and a fake enjoyment on good responds.

I usually think of something or giving things based on what I will get. I reject do things that is inefficient, but actually if it is good and gives me more experiences why don’t I do it?! I gave something to someone who never says thanks. Eventually for the last thing I gave, he/she said thanks. I never hope him/her to say so, but he/she did.

So does on writing blog. To my friend H.. just write your words, at least it will be your memory in the future. You would smile or even laugh when reading the old posts..*believe me, I did :D*

Giving is not about taking. Giving sure gives you the warm feeling. Giving will gives you something from another source, have faith on it.
