Like-a-Brain Flower

Remember the Sunflower post? I said that I’ll post the other photos I took at that day, and I’m ready to post one today!

LAB 1

At a glance, they look like brains right? But they aren’t XD

They are watery, cute, soft flowers with fur. I like to touch them hahaha 😀

I don’t know what they call. My mom said they called “jengger ayam” flowers (“cock’s comb” in English). Is it the name of the flower? I’m not sure. Please tell me what it is.

LAB 2

This is my most favorite photo of “jengger ayam”.Look at the texture of the trunk *O* and the flower’s seeds *O*

My mom asked me to bring the dry seeds but until now I haven’t taken some :s

Bonus (?) :

An insect. I took this picture from behind the sunflower’s leaf XD Flash was used, it was dark over there

Sunflower ♥

sunflower 1

On December 10th, my mom was late to pick me up from school. I waited at the “security post”, about 300 meters from my school.

I phoned my mom, and she said I must wait for about 20 minutes. I get bored easily, so I searched for things to do around me (I was alone there).

Then, this sunflower caught my attention

I rarely see sunflower before, so I won’t miss this opportunity!

I didn’t bring my SLR camera with me, fortunately I brought my Samsung GT-I8150 and I snapped some photos 😀

The position of the sunflower gave me a disadvantage. The flower faced the street, so, I must go to the middle of the street (and took photos) to get the full flower and nice photos. I was afraid of getting hit, so I tried to take photos from the roadside, but I failed DX

When I snap photos, I often forget about my time. Waiting wasn’t boring anymore. 10 minutes had passed, and I hadn’t got anything good. I was very upset and took a brave decision, took a photo from the road. Not exactly in the middle of the road, but it was a dangerous position

It’s a success. I got a beautiful photo of that sunflower! ♥

After I snapped that photo, I snapped some other things around me, which were much easier than the sunflower (I’m going to post them next Wednesday :D)

When I was admiring my work, my mom honked the car’s horn, and finally my wait time was over 🙂

 

Thanks to the sunflower, I didn’t feel bored when I was waiting for my mom last Monday 😀

I saw the sunflower again today and it has already withered. Oh, it’s a good thing that I took the photos at the right time :3

 

What do you usually do when you wait for someone?

Early Christmas Celebration?

My family have a Christian fellowship (it started before I was born), and it grows bigger and bigger weeks by weeks

Last 8th of December, 2012, we decided to have an ‘early’ Christmas celebration, at a comfortable restaurant

FACD 1

It was opened with saying hello each other, talked for a while, and we sang 5 Christmas songs..

My father gave the afterthought for about 15 minutes, then, the Silent night ‘candlelight’ time

CL 1

CL 2

CL 3

There were kids between us and I was kind of afraid if they dropped the candle 😐 fortunately it didn’t happen ^^

After that, we ate. Most of us felt relieved because we were very hungry XD

.

Our stomaches were very full. It’s time for games! 😀

The first game was made by my friends(who used to live near me)’s mom. So, we must make 2 lines, 5 people in each line.

The ones who stand in front got a paper that was written what they should draw. Then, after they drew for about 10 seconds, they showed the drawing to the person behind them, the 2nd person draw again, it happened until it reached the 5th person. The 5th person must guess what it was.

My team won, 3-0 ^^

 

The second game was made by one of the member (I don’t know him well, he’s still new with his family).

The participants must stand in a line. They were given a balloon each. They must blow the balloon, released it, and followed where it went. The first one who reached the finish line would be the winner. It was a fun game, but a lot of people cheating, by throwing the balloon ==

FACD G1

 

The third game was made by my mom.

There were 30 papers, with red and green side each. One be the red, one be the green. The red must flip the green into red as soon as possible. So must the other.

Fast hands are needed here XD

(I also won this match, against my friend)

I took the photo, so there aren’t any me (?) in the pictures :3

FACD G2

It was a fun experience.. Yeah, we went home with exhausted body, but we would never forget about that day 🙂

How’s your ‘early’ Christmas celebration?

 

 

note: all of the pictures here were taken with  Samsung GT-I8150 ^^ The result might be better if I used my SLR but my phone’s camera is good too :3

Dry Ice and Me – September 25th, 2012

I love ice cream, and my mom just bought lots of ice cream yesterday! >w<

But the main topic of today’s post is not about ice cream

Have you ever bought ice cream somewhere? And what do the seller usually give, with the ice cream?

Dry ice!

I love playing with the dry ice. Not touching them >< (my fingers will be frozen and red if I do that :O) but… put the dry ice into a bowl or glass and give water on it! 😀 It’s so fun~

See the dark photos? I took these photo in my living room, it’s dark and I must use fast shutter speed to make the movement frozen. I’ve edited them but the noise appeared (and I don’t like it) :/

 

I used to play with the dry ice until I’m bored and throw all of the remaining dry ice, but yesterday, I made a new innovation too : shampoo + water + dry ice : more fun!

Bubbles! And when they pop, it becomes ‘smoke’

 

You can try it at home too! 😀

27th and 28th of July, 2012 – My Mom’s Friend’s Daughter’s, “SA”‘s Birthday and What I Did On The Next Day

27th and 28th of July, 2012 – My Mom’s Friend’s Daughter’s, “SA”‘s Birthday and What I Did On The Next Day

July 27th, 2012

Nothing was fun on school days -.-

For the first and second lesson, my Religion teacher in class didn’t came in, so there was a teacher who replaced my religion teacher to ‘guard’ us, the students. The religion teacher gave us a task, and we must make a group, both male and female must in the group of 5. The task was to make a quite long essay about our opinion about the quite important thing in my surroundings.

I was in the group with a good writer. But the thing that I don’t like is that he always hears his friend (also in my group – a girl)’s comment and things related and unrelated to the topic, but ignored me. I don’t know, he doesn’t like me or only pay attention to his friends. Yeah, I’m outside his inner circle but please treat the other fairly 😦

The Math and Geographic were boring as usual. The Music, only sang and wrote some things, and computer, like usual.

I had a violin lesson after the school, but I forgot about it at all. My mom called me 10 minutes after the school bell rang, I was in the ‘antar jemput’ car. And I screamed, “Oh, I forgot!” and ran from the car after telling the driver that I wouldn’t go home with it.

After violin lesson, I went home, took a shower and lunch, after that I had a nap.

In the evening, I prepared for my mom’s friend’s daughter SA 😀

My mom and I arrived at the restaurant at 6PM.

The time at the invitation was 5 PM but when I arrived there only half of the room came.

So, the opening was made by SA’s friend. 7 pair of girls and boys came out to the stage. Than, they holding hands, walked in a circle, following the music. After that, they went off the stage, standing side by side on the path to the stage. They held a balon each. So, finally, at 7PM, SA came in 🙂 she was wearing a very nice pink long dress. When she walking passed the pairs of boys and girls, they released the ballons they had.

SA thanked us with 3 languages : Chinese, Japanese, and Indonesian. I wonder why she wouldn’t use English, her speciality. She also sang a song. She has a nice voice 😀

After she sang, she gave pieces of cakes to her parents and grandparents. And she cut the big cake on the stage. I think she should do the cutting first :/

And, the games started 😀

The first game was sit on the chair. So, there were 6 chairs. SA’s boy friend who joined the game were 7 person. There was a song, but when the song stopped, they must sit on the chairs. It’s quite funny, because on the two last rounds of the game, they refused to sit. I don’t know why, maybe they were afraid of being punished or something. And the last round, the one who lost previously sit on the chair. He’s the winner. Weird right? :p

The boys who lost at the first game must do the second game as a punishment. So the 6 people teamed up, became 3 teams. One person in each team put a can of coke at their upper leg, and the other one must zip the coke from there. It’s somehow weird and funny x.x

The third game was for couples. So there were 3 high school couples. Their eyes were closed, and the girls must hold the long marshmallow using their mouth without touching it. Both the boys and the girls must ate it, and the fastest would be the winner. There was something funny there. When the 2 couples ate the marshmallow fast, the other couple ate the marshmallow slowly and enjoyed it. Their friends laughed at them, but it seems that they didn’t realise it. Even the MC gave more marshmallow to them than other couples but they kept eating it slowly without realised it. It was sooo funny! xDD

The 4th game: make a long line from the door until the stage and must touch SA’s feet with their body and things that the participants have. The A group was smart. They borrowed their friends’ belts. The group B couldn’t do anything because they didn’t have idea to do that. And, as predicted, group A was the winner.

After that, SA and her best friend, C, danced in front! Their moves were a bit disorganised but it was good after all. They use KPOP songs (my favorite kind of music xD)

The 5th game was weird. A boy must be tied on a chair and his shirt taken off. The other 5 boys must use lots of lipstick and kiss the tied boy’s body (disguisting!). The one who kissed the most would win. Yuck 😡 I didn’t enjoy this game.

For the last game, the girls move the pingpong ball from the boys’ trousers and make it go out from their shirt. This wasn’t fun, and one of the girl shy to do this :p (Who doesn’t? X.x)

After that last game, here were photo session. It makes me remember that it seems like the theme of this sweet seventeen is similar to a wedding party. Really.

There isn’t anything to complain about the food.The food were delicious, but I don’t remember what were they, sorry :p

After all, I love this sweet seventeen anniversary 🙂

July 28, 2012

It was an event that held on July 27th but it was on July 28th in my country. What was that? The opening ceremony of London Olympic 2012

I must woke up at 3AM to watch it. I was sooo sleepy but it went away after I reminded myself that I really want to watch it.

After a quite long wait, finally it started! :3

I really enjoyed it, but I like the first one best, the one about the history of England.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t watch it until the end. The car that pick me up to school came, so it means that I didn’t watch the closing firework! T.T I want to watch it later, search for it in youtube, but I don’t have time for it yet :/

Tell me about your or your friend’s sweet seventeen birthday party~ ^^ What’s your favorite game in those parties? Did you watch the London 2012 Opening Ceremony? What do you think about it? ^^
