Pulau Wayag

"Pulau Wayag"

Pulau Wayag

Pulau Wayag probably has one of the best views of mountains and beaches that exist around the world. The colors are amazing with blue and, turquoise water, white clouds, green vegetation/jungle and grey & black stones/mountains. We saw photos from other visitors before we left and it looked great, but seeing it in reality was even more amazing. It is a tough climb to reach the top, but it is definitely worth it. The boat ride from the inhabit islands of Raja Ampat is about 2-3 hours, thus you need a complete day for the tour.

Wat Pho’s wishing you a Happy New Year 2013

Wat Pho’s wishing you a Happy New Year 2013

The temple is considered the first public university of Thailand, teaching students in the fields of religion, science and literature through murals and sculptures. In 1962 a school for traditional medicine and massage was established.
The temple is home to one of the earliest Thai massage schools. Traditional Thai massage and medicine is taught at the Traditional Medical Practitioners Association Center, an open air hall outside the temple. For Thai massage therapists, the medical inscription inside the temple acts as a base for treatment. There are 60 plaques inscribed, 30 each for the front and back of human body. Therapeutic points and energy pathways known as sen were engraved and the explanations were carved on the walls next to the plaques. Full research on the diagrams is still not completed – the derivation so far is that the figures represent relationships between anatomical locations and effects produced by treatment at those locations.

Innocent Child

"Innocent Child"

Innocent Child

In the eyes of an innocent child, you see all, you know all.
In the eyes of an innocent child, you know why the sky is blue and the
leaves fall.
In the eyes of an innocent child, There is no peace and there is no
war.
In the eyes of an innocent child, There is only peaceful co-existance.

In the eyes of an innocent child, There is only here and now and
nothing in the distance.
In the eyes of an innocent child, there are the colours of the rainbow,
black and white.
In the eyes of an innocent child, Grey areas are not right.
We look at things in grey, black and white, but not like a rainbow.
Some say we even look through rose coloured glasses.
It would be nice if we could look at the world through the eyes of an
innocent child.

"Prambanan built to honor lord Shiva"

Prambanan built to honor lord Shiva

A temple was first built at the site around 850 CE by either Rakai Pikatan or Balitung Maha Sambu the Sanjaya king of the Mataram Kingdom. According to Shivagrha inscription that wrote chandrasengkala ”Walung gunung sang wiku” (778 Saka/856 M), the temple was built to honor lord Shiva and the original name of the temple is Shiva-grha (the house of Shiva).

Indeed, some archaeologists propose that the idol of Shiva in the garbhagriha (central chamber) of the main temple is modelled after King Balitung, serving as a depiction of his deified self after death.

Clues to the Past

The large ridge of loose rock is called a lateral moraine. It was created by the glacier as it flowed down the valley. The top of the moraine marks the glacier’s maximum height.
Since 1885 the Athabasca Glacier has lost more than 60% of its volume. That’s over 350 million cubic metres of ice.

On the top of Tangkuban Perahu mountain

On a reasonably clear day, from Tangkuban Perahu, we can see not only the mountain range to the east, with Mt. Bukittunggul as its highest peak (2,209 m), but also two other in a northeasterly direction. The lower and nearer one is Mt. Tampomas (1,684 m) just north of Sumedang some 40 km away.

To the right and about 90 km away is Mt. Ciremai close to Cirebon on the north coast. At 3,078 m, Mt. Ciremai is West Java’s tallest mountain. At the foot of Mt. Tangkuban Perahu we see the Ciater tea plantation covering the rolling hills. Farther to the left are the northern coastal plains of Java, and on an extremely clear day we may even be able to see the Java Sea beyond.
