What's for Dinner?

Postingan singkat sambil menunggu waktu Isya. Saya mau pamer menu makan malam hari ini :D By the way, ini sudah pukul 11 p.m. lho, tapi belum Isya juga (Magrib aja udah setengah sepuluh).
Berhubung sedang malas masak, jadi dinner saya malam ini simpel saja:
A bowl of fruit salad with yogurt

Tapi setelah dilihat-lihat, kok kayaknya ga bakal kenyang ya...
Akhirnya saya pun terpaksa bermain dengan kompor, panci, dan wajan untuk menghasilkan tambahan karbohidrat, haha

Jadi intinya inilah menu dinner saya di akhir Mei ini: 

A smiling fruit bowl and spaghetti with tuna sauce

I was surprised I could finish all that.
Itu aja, ga penting emang :D So, what did you have for dinner?
Have a very nice weekend! (I'm going on vacation! Hehe)

White Edensor

Siapa yang tak tahu Edensor (/ˈɛnzər/)?  Setidaknya nama desa kecil di wilayah Derbyshire ini terkenal di Indonesia sebagai judul novel ketiga tetralogi Laskar Pelangi karya Andrea Hirata. Akhir tahun lalu saya berkesempatan melewati desa ini saat mengunjungi Chatsworth House. Ketika itu wilayah Sheffield dan sekitarnya sedang diselimuti salju. Jadi beberapa foto yang saya post kali ini menunjukkan hamparan bebukitan Edensor dan Chatsworth House dalam nuansa putih.

Promoting Peace and Friendship with RocketWorld

So, there's this event called RocketWorld which is organised by The International Society of Greater Manchester. I've just known about it two days ago when my friend asked me to be a volunteer. Why not? I thought. I have plenty of free time, anyway.

The Volunteers
On Tuesday at 7 a.m. we made our way to Maxwell building, spending about thirty minutes walking in the showering rain. A black cab picked us up at 8 a.m. and I met two other girls from Saudi Arabia and Greece. The cab drove us to International Society office where Sam, the coordinator, greeted us. There were also Manuel from Spain, Vasiliki from Cyprus, Yidnek from Ethiopia, and three other Chinese volunteers.

The event involves going to primary school around Greater Manchester and Liverpool and introducing the countries to the pupils. Each volunteer represent their countries and the kids would come and ask things about that country. There's also an enormous earth ball set up in the middle of the hall which is the most attractive thing to the kids. 

Yesterday's event was held at Webster Primary School. It was my first time and I enjoyed it to the heart. It was tiring as the pupils were so eager to learn and asked so many questions, yet it was so much fun at the same time. I got to tell them about the thousands of Island we have, endemic fauna and flora, as well as taught them how to play Lompat Tali which they enjoyed so much! :D

I definitely want to participate again in the near future, insha Allah.

Nice Quotes from "Only Dad"

Saya selesai membaca satu novel karya Alan Titchmarsh berjudul 'Only Dad' beberapa waktu lalu. Novel ini bercerita tentang hubungan Tom Drummond dan anak perempuannya Tally setelah Pippa -istri Tom- meninggal. Ada beberapa kalimat yang saya suka dari novel ini, jadi saya post di entry kali ini sekalian dengan terjemahan bebasnya (awalnya saya menulis paragraf ini pakai bahasa Inggris, lalu saya ganti dengan bahasa Indonesia dan entah kenapa jadinya kaku sekali -_-)

Anybody's Missing Me?

So, here I'm back again. Not really sure anyone has visited this blog ever since my last post but yeah, why should people come when nothing's offered?

No post for the previous month, eh?
I was so busy with my life -well, maybe not- that when I came back to reality a month has passed without me posting anything on this blog. I did intend to at least post one single entry each month -like I did in March, deliberately- but somehow I didn't manage to do it. 

Let's see, what I've been doing the last several weeks: I got three weeks break for Easter, went to a short vacation and had to hand in my research project on 24th. Then the class resumed and things just back to normal.

Not that I don't know what to write. I have a list containing mixed topic with the most obvious one is UKtrip. Sometimes I just hold myself back. How to put it, I don't want people to read me like an open book. This particular idea just come to me at times that I want to be a little bit mysterious, like the certain someone I know. It seems fun, to be able to enjoy yourself without being distracted by the virtual world.

But then again, I'm not gonna neglect this blog for the whole year. Will come back with a real post hopefully as soon as possible. Thank you for reading through this. I really appreciate that :)
