无论你遇见谁，他都是对的人； 无论发生什么事，那都是唯一会发生的事； 不管事情开始于哪个时刻，那都是对的时刻； 已经结束的，已经结束了。 事情结束后，我也不想再去回顾。这种回顾在之前以为已经结束时已经做过，三番四次。晚上想要回顾最后一次，却发现脑海一片空白，酥麻的感觉。何必再抓着紧紧的，已经结束的，已经结束了。早上醒来，想起若干年前朋友说的那句话：people comes into life for a reason, season or a life time. 我们曾经以为是一世人的事，后来发现只是一个季节的温度，却原来是生命中的一个理由而已。我将你的东西整理掉，把你放开。
Tourist trap: Overland from Thailand to Cambodia through Poipet
Well spoken English guy ready for you while exiting Thailand custom, wearing nice uniform telling you there will be free shuttle bus once you exit Cambodian custom. They said they are from the government and the shuttle bus will transfer you to the bus terminal where you get the options to choose bus or taxi to various destination in Cambodia. The bus to Siem Riep costs 9USD/ person and taxi 12USD/ person. This is a TRAP. After you exit Cambodian custom, these guys will try to stop you from moving forward to find your own transportation. Ignore them and walk forward to the roundabout, a lot of taxi drivers are waiting there charging 30USD/ car (we get it at 900Bath) to Siem Riep. Direct and without hassle.
Hitchhiking is the rare activity that takes events out of your control... thus teaching you how to accept 'whatever happens' and that things always work out if you let them do so... that you receive what you need; and what you don't receive, you don't need. Thus, it allows you to be, or become your natural self, as you will draw to yourself the destiny that is yours. - lrv
Damn. I love traveling and still loving it. Sent a text to BH before boarding --as soon as I see the plane I am boarding, I have the urge to jump and shout -- it makes me feel free.
I have so much unnamed confidence in hitting the road. Arrived in Tana Toraja early this morning, the land of special burial ceremony. They call that Pesta. Someone invited me for the famous Toraja coffee, topping with fried banana. Offered me free stay too but I am too afraid to accept it. Found the place holding Pesta from tourist information center, heading there with small backpack (thanks to limited cabin luggage that AirAsia allowed forcing me to reduce my backpack to <7kg) and without guide (it is possible to go without guide but remember to bring gift and ask for the person to give it to). Spending 90k Rp for kretek (RM30, cigarette; or 4k of sugar is good for one person) as gift. Sacrifices of pigs and buffaloes follow up with tea and snacks. Men chopped the sacrificed in pieces for distribution. Then started the praising of God (they are Protestant), singing (I heard the Bahasa Indonesian version of my favorite song - I know who holds tomorrow). People started crying. Governor started speaking -- telling the parents to take care of their your girl below 17 who join the 'gang moto' (strange speech). Lunch started -- the buffaloes that were kills (some body cover with their tahi and with millions of flies--which fly onto your body, hair and face if you walk closer). Eating with the smell of tahi lembu around but the kerbau meat is damn good (I have tried it a few times before but this is the best i have had). The continue the potong-potong of buffalo head. Rain started pouring down and I tumpang (hitch) a ride back to town. Bargained for a good room with hot water for 80kRp a day (promise a 3 days stay) including breakfast. I have checked almost all places to stay in town and I am satisfied with the value of money. I think I really enjoy traveling and still enjoy it, that is why you see this entry.
Take the minibus with the sign "KAMA" from Berastagi town, for 2000IDR it will send you to the base of Mt. Sibayak (last stop) where 4000IDR entrance fee is asked. There you start walking along the paved road. It was quite a boring walk.
I walk into the Perpustakaan Daerah Utara Sumatera and found a room for Internet.
OnKos? I asked. OnKos, means money.
Ngak. No need. The lady answered. Ngak, means tidak.
Bisa guna? I asked again. Bisa, means boleh.
Bisa, tapi bisa dua jam saja. She said.
除了World of Abundance，他想不出更适合描述自己此刻想法的形容词。春节将至，一早同事就提醒他，2:45到楼下去拿红包。他不曾在非常“中华文化”的环境下工作，每次过年听别人说“收工红包”，他也只有听的份。他以前工作了几年的大工厂有收工红包吗，他想不起来，不过依照西方办公文化，应该没有。同事用长长的人龙来吓唬他，说大伙都要领红包，啪啪声。他强调，啪啪声。办公室出乎意料的空旷，我们签了个名，不需等候，就领了各自的大信封出来。信封好大，像有人结婚请宴席一般，红彤彤。啪啪啪，他们说，三张紫色的一百块。他不禁咋舌，World of Abundance，他心里浮现这句话。
