Rum Raisin Chocolate Ice Cream Chocolate ice cream sure will be so yummy and delicious, especially if added some raisins and one teaspoon of rhum :p~ For the chocolate ice cream, you will need 7 cups heavy cream, 12 ounces semisweet chocolate, 2 ounces (2 squares.) unsweetened chocolate,1 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup water, pinch of salt, 6 yolks (from eggs graded large, extra-large, or jumbo), 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. To make Rum-Raisin Chocolate Ice Cream, place about 1 cup of raisins in a jar with a tight cover, add about 1/2 cup dark rum, cover and let stand for a few days, turning the jar occasionally to keep all the raisins wet, or marinate in a closed plastic bag. Stir raisins and any unabsorbed rum into the ice cream after churning. Or do the same thing with chopped dates, using rum or brandy. Hmmm yummy! But it will be different if we talked about a song. Yes a song that was always on air on Prambors 105,1 FM Makassar or any youth radio in town. At first I didn't know that the artist who sang this song is Ten2Five. Ten2Five is an Indonesian music band. Local band, but got nice songs and music. Most of all their songs are in English, makes people who didn't notice will think that Ten2Five is a band from outside of Indonesia. Hehehe, including me from the beginning :p~ According to their site, the name of the band inspired from the hour they spent together for playing music. From ten to five (10 am - 5 pm), every Saturday, at Perth, Austrlia. And the kind of music is soft, easy-listening, which is really perfect to hear in the rush hour on the road if you stuck in the traffic. Mixed jazz, pop, ballad and R&B. Curious? Better quickly to the music store and buy one. Highly recommended! :) Here's the lyric of Rum Raisin Chocolate Ice Cream. The song talks about first date. So easy-listening and describe how is the feeling on the first date :) Rum raisin chocolate ice cream Sekotak penuh kau berikan padaku Di siang itu Berdua nikmati es krim kesukaanku Dunia serasa milik berdua Saat pertama kali mencoba jalin cinta Lupakan segalanya Nikmati setiap detik yang berjalan Rum raisin chocolate ice cream 4x Bridge: Sekotak memori, cinta pertama, begitu nikmat, terasa sampai di hati

Maknyak Gone From Makassar Today Maknyak gone from Makassar, flew to Surabaya by Mandala Airlines on 17.30. Story details you may read on Adhi's blog. All the pictures were from Adhi's camera, so I have nothing hehehe... The last day of meet and greet with Maknyak was not so hillarious as those 2 days. I joined Adhi and Maknyak on 1 pm, when Adhi and Maknyak had been from eating Jalankote and Lumpia Lasinrang. They were at the internet cafe when I joined them. We get online until 2 pm, after talking and chatting at YM Conference Room with mbak Rieke, tutup_panci and kidy :p After that, we went to the place where Maknyak stayed, and spent some hours until the time she had to go to the airport. To the airport, Maknyak went with Mr. Dean's car, Adhi and me by my car. At the airport, Adhi badly need to go to the toilet. And while he went to the toilet, we must go in (without any payment because we were with Mr. Dean), and left Adhi alone hahahaha.. While inside, we keep messaging Adhi to come in, by some cheat way. First we told him to wait, but when there seems no chance for us to go out again, we told him to fool the security. But he was too nice-guy to do that. He waited (as you can see on the picture above), then he went to buy the passticket hehehe.. Anyway, goodbye Maknyak, see you at your next coming to Indonesia. I hope we can meet again, I was really nice to meet someone like you :)

But I couldn't pick her up because I'll be in clinic on that time, so I sent a sms to Adhi, to give him some information of Maknyak's arrival. I also told him to tell Leo and other Makassar Bloggerians about this. At this time, I only can recommend a place for Maknyak to stay. I joined Adhi and Maknyak on 5 pm.

Last Meet With PSMKGI Activists PSMKGI? What is that? Some of you might questioned about it. PSMKGI is Persatuan Senat Mahasiswa Kedokteran Gigi Indonesia, or in english is Indonesian Dental Student Senate Association. Why this is the last meet with them? Because they will not come here again. Why? Because Hasanuddin University had resigned from PSMKGI. Why? Well, that's a very long story to tell. First thing on my mind if I remember this.. is very sad feeling. To unite 12 universities of dental faculties are not easy. Different thoughts, attitude, emotions and feelings are gather to be one. A national meeting of PSMKGI (Munas PSMKGI) were held here at Makassar, and Hasanuddin University as the local committee. But the meeting gone too "hot" and too emotional. And just because Hasanuddin University's candidate to be a PSMKGI's SekJen not acceptable, they quit without more good reasons. That's a fool I think, and that's a craziest thought I ever heard! And because of the quit, all the people who involved in the organization are gone, don't want have contact anymore with others. And what had happened is they didn't want to continue their friendship as personal too.. Crazy! The dental students who came from 11 universities in Indonesia were almost abandoned. Some of them are my friends. As I've told you from the previous post, I brought them to the sightseeings after the national meeting and before they gone to their cities. And this was the last day.. Sorry the pictures are so blurred, because Wahyu took it so amateurly :p~ This is Wahyu, ex-PSMKGI's Sek-Jen. From Dentistry USAKTI. Actually he got mustaches, but before the picture taken, he already get rid of it.. hehehe so imagine if he still got the mustaches :p~ Posted by Hello Ichi, me, Niam (from UGM, the new PSMKGI SekJen), Andi (from USAKTI), and Hamid (UGM). Before the last dinner. Posted by Hello Dinner we ate at Ichi's home. Posted by Hello

If you come to Makassar, you should see this view, you won't regret it. Only at Losari Metro, Makassar. This is Pisang Epe', a traditional snack from Makassar. You must try this if you come to Makassar. If not, it is just the same that you weren't there. Only at Losari Metro, Makassar. Posted by Hello

The Gift of Written Word... How important is it to write out our thoughts and feelings? I�m so glad God decided to put His thoughts and feelings into the written word! I love to know that He thinks about us constantly and carries us in the palm of His hand. I�m thrilled to learn about His character and read about the experiences others have had in His presence. Words have power�and we have the privilege of preserving them in our journals every day. When we take time to record memories, journal our prayers, and write down our thoughts, we truly give ourselves a gift to be opened over and over again. We can recall times of laughter, be encouraged by God�s faithfulness in difficult situations, and feel a sense of comfort by expressing and managing the emotions He�s given to us. It feels good to revisit the joys and even the struggles in our lives, because God is working in us and building our trust through every circumstance. We never outgrow His gentle and wise instruction. We never graduate from the learning process. As another school year begins, we might all use it as a little nudge to begin an �essay� on the days God gives us on earth. No due dates, no grading scales, simply an opportunity to appreciate the gift of the written word�and a chance to allow God to encourage our hearts and remind us of His unconditional love and continued faithfulness. Our journals can become one of our favorite reads�and perhaps one of our greatest teachers. So.., happy blog-ing, hppy journal-ing! :)

Just Here... It is a really long weekend, and me is just here. Saturday-Sunday-Monday is holiday. Everybody are planning to go somewhere out from the cuty or anywhere else. But here I am at home, just here. Even Kidy got a plan to go with Telkomsel Family Gathering at Lembang. Well great for him becuse he got another DVD player which makes his DVD player becomes 2. So, what did I do? I helped two of my friends, Emmy and Helvine, finishing their assignments. And it all ended on 00.30 am on the next day (14/09/2004). Phew!

Some Stories... First, I want to congratulate my friends: drg. Rahmawati a.k.a Wati, drg. Ira Desti Saptari a.k.a Echie, and drg. Rasymi Rasyid a.k.a Ammy for their graduation to be a dentist. Whoa.., still long journey for me to reach the goal because I just graduate for my BDS (Bachelor of Dental Science) last year, which makes me stay still in clinic for the next 1 year then graduate hehehe. Just be patient. There always the time for everything :) Second, this is what happened on last Tuesday (07/09/2004), I didn't post yet because I want to include this story with the pictures. Takes time to reduce the pixel and size of the pictures. On that day we're going to have dinner with the three new dentist mentioned up there. But while waiting for them finished practice for the graduation, me and my friends went to my home and take a rest there. Well, really take a rest because many things happened. Hahaha :D Here's the pictures and feel free give your comments. Crazy isn't it? :p~
   (left) This is not as you thought hehehe. Erase your dirty mind :p~ They just sleep and pretend something to make you react of what are they did. (right) The picture really shows that we're really tired and let's take a nap.    (left) Bati (pink shirt) wants to try wearing contact lenses but couldn't put them on. Since it was her first time and she afraid to do herself so Husnul (left) and Emmy (right, the one that shows her leg only) helped her to put the contact lenses into her eyes. (right) This scene looked a like a cataract operation hahaha.. it was the effort to put those contact lenses right into Bati's eyes. Hahahaha :D~

Indonesia in Deeply Grieving, Bomb Blasted at Australian Embassy! A massive car bombing near the Australian Embassy in Jakarta, today around 10.30 am, rattled Indonesia's financial markets, driving the stock market lower and prompting the government to warn it may delay the sale of state-owned assets. No diplomats who were working inside the building were hurt but the embassy's Indonesian staff manning the security post outside were injured and one security guard died. The staff were immediately evacuated. Security is already very tight at foreign embassies in the capital. The Australian Embassy's solid fence withstood the impact of the blast but not the gate fence. Scores of buildings had their glass facades smashed and several foreign companies such as accounting firm Price Waterhouse Coopers quickly moved their employees away from the vicinity. Vehicles were wrecked. Over at the hospital, a scene of sheer misery as medical staff struggle to cope with the injured. More than 100 people are hurt and some critically. Indonesians are in shock by the sheer impact of the blast. By the time I write down this posting, I heard that 8 (eight) killed and 168 in severe wounded. Those who are killed, only 4 are identified. The rest is still unknown. Certainly we don't think about death for long periods of time. On the other hand, we do think about our death fairly frequently, even if it is just for an instant before we put it away for our other thoughts.There are many things I don't understand and several things that I truly doubt will happen the way some people think. However, I'm fully aware of this beat-up body that I carry around � based on my Lord's promise � will be replaced with a wonderful new one. Gosh! OMGPDA, what happened to this hectic world? People are so insane, too discriminative to think. Do they think that if they blast the bomb, the international relationship between Indonesia and other countries will be crush too? Do they think that if they blast the bomb, other Indonesian people may be or most of them are the victims? Today, is the most worst day in Indonesia, after bomb blast in Bali and JW Marriot. I wondered, why every year we have to watch bomb blasts? Today I'm grieving here, with all Indonesian who cares about this severe accident which should not happen again! :(
