I live near beach at the first of my 17 years, never get out from the island. You can see it here, lucky we have beautiful dry gulf that trap fishes. Since indonesia is archipelago country, rich of spices and herbs, our culinary culture influences directly by geological benefit. And seafood is been my hometribes main cuisine for ages. We eat fish like forever, in every dishes. The activity in the market fish is purely modern savage in pactice they attract me with their habits of yelling and shouting inapproriate words as friendly expressing, i mean really friendly. Most of them, mostly fisherman find it common to express themselves in a harsh way to gain trust and developing friendly relationship beetwen bussines.

Noticed that weird stuff lying arround between those seafood? that’s the stuff the fish dealer throw at fishermans boat to mark fresh fish they want to buy. (Except penises, vagina, monkey, dog, this is the common shouting word-items that they think it’s friendly). They must throw it quickly and have a good aim. Otherwise, other fish dealer gonna take it and you lost your chances for lot of cheap fish. This situation usually gone mad with yelling and shouting each other. There were no riot.

There is a habit people surround my social circles which, most of them rely on zodiac to identify their own personality and daily decision they make. Me too, i’ve been following 5-10 daily zodiac services on twitter, just to make sure is there people before me who most exactly identical in key aspects. Because, maybe we feel like have a clear purpose that already been set at the time we were born, and our job is to continue doing it. Isn’t that great? to be the self that your inner self want to be?. I try some experiment start with my self. I was born at February 10th, 1989. Aquarian, Year of the Snake, and Earth. Earth caught my attention.
Earth made by rocks, and moeslim belief human are made from earth, from rocks. The method is to get involved with many rocks and re-draw, re-paint it with ink, earth-made material. The result is, i realize that rock is not a matter, is a properties of a matter, a concept rather than a extensive stuff.
For now, i’m gonna explain in bahasa, while i try to find a good english intrepret to get precise meaning. Because, what i propose related to talking habits that indonesian get used to.
