Tongkonan Kesu’

<img src=”http://www.elmosphere.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/tongkonan_toraja.jpg”>Ke’te Kesu’. Begitulah orang Toraja memberinya nama. Sebuah tempat wisata yang terkenal dengan rumah adatnya, “Tongkonan”. Tidak seperti biasanya, kawasan ini dipenuhi banyak kendaraan, mungkin karna ini hari Minggu. Entah untuk keberapa kalinya saya mengunjungi tempat ini, tempat yang sama, terkesan alami, terasa tidak seperti mengunjungi kawasan wisata pada umumnya. Berbeda dengan kota Jogja atau Bali yang begitu terkenal dengan kawasan wisatanya.Kawasan ini terlihat dan terasa berbeda. Binatang yang berkeliaran dengan bebasnya seperti ayam, anjing, seakan membawa kita ke daerah perkampungan. Suara kicauan burung yang saling bersahut-sahutan, seakan memberikan nyanyian kepada setiap pengunjung yang mendatangi Ke’te Kesu’. Terasa begitu menenangkan, mungkin karna saya menyukai ketenangan alam yang ditawarkan, walau sesekali terdengar suara kendaraan yang lalu lalang di jalan raya.

Duo Kwek dan Jogja

Naik kereta api … tut … tut … tut
Siapa hendak turut
Ke Bandung … Surabaya
Bolehlah naik dengan percuma
Ayo temanku lekas naik
Keretaku tak berhenti lama
Cepat kretaku jalan …tut…tut…tut
Banyak penumpang turut
K’retaku sudah penat
Karena beban terlalu berat
Di sinilah ada stasiun
Penumpang semua turun……

Changeling (2008)

Clint Eastwood’s “Changeling” tells the story of a woman driven to confront a corrupted LAPD after her abducted son is retrieved and she begins to suspect that the boy returned to her is not the same boy she have birth to. Angelina Jolie as Christine said goodbye to her son, Walter, and departed for work, she never anticipated that this was the day her life would be forever changed. Walter was nowhere to be found. Christine tries to search and suddenly, a nine-year-old boy claiming to be Christine’s son. She invites the child to stay in her home despite knowing without a doubt that he is not her son.  I think this is another good movie of Jolie after “Mighty Heart”.

Alanis Morisette New Album

Alanis Morisette, the singer of the ‘Jagged Little Pill’, releases her new album “Flavors of Entanglement” after four years in ‘hibernation’. This album is produced by former Frou Frou member, Guy Sigsworth. In this album, Morisette combines her various musical interest from organic instruments to hip-hop beats. She also does something different, having a boy as a back-up singer. “…it’s the first time since I was 16 I’ve had a boy back-up sing on one of my album. I’m finally giving them a chance.” “Flavor of Entanglement” will include “Not as we” featured only piano and vocals and “Moratorium” that is in essence a song about her readiness to stop repeating bad patterns.

Depp to be the next Batman villain?

After The Dark Knight broke all records at the box office shortly after its release, Depp is being tipped to be the next Batman villain. Producers are convinced that the role of the Riddler is perfect for Depp (I do agree!!), Johnny’s a pro. In the 1960s, the Riddler was played on the small screen by Frank Gorshin and by Jim Carrey in 1995 movie Batman Forever. Michael, who played Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth told MTV: “I was with a Warner Bros. executive and I said, ‘Are we going to make another one?’ They said, ‘Yeah’. I said, ‘How the hell are we going to top Heath Ledger as the Joker? And he sayd, “I’ll tell you how you top Heath – Johnny Depp as the Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman as the Penguin. Depp recently described the prospect of playing The Riddler as “fun”. He said, “I heard about that. It seems like it’d be a fun gig for a while, yeah.”

Igor (2008)

Release date: 19 September 2008 (USA)
Genre: Animation, Comedy

Igor. “All men are not created evil”. It is another upcoming animated film by director Anthony Leondis (Lilo and Stitch 2). This movie involves John Cusack, Steve Buscemi, Eddie Izzard, Jennifer Coolidge and John Cleese as Dr. Glickenstein. Igor is a playfully irreverent comedy that brings a new twist to the classic monster genre. You can see how Igor came under the employ of the inept Dr. Glickenstein, much to the loveable hunchbacked assistant’s dismay. Igor will make you laugh when he first failed evil science fair experiment. Can’t wait..

Sampah berguna bagi kebun!

Menurut Kathy Bond Borie dari National Gardening Association, jangan membuang beberapa sampah berikut karna dapat membantu pertumbuhan tanaman dan sayuran :

1. Kulit pisang : Sejenis mineral pada kulit pisang yaitu potasium dapat membantu pertumbuhan bunga mawar. Iris tipis tipis kulit pisang, lalu taburkan di sekitar bunga mawar. Lakukanlah ini sebulan sekali, di bulan-bulan saat matahari sering bersinar

2. Ampas kopi : Ampas kopi memberikan tambahan nitrogen pada tanaman seperti azalea, gardenia dan conifer. Sebarkan di sekitar pangkalnya sebulan sekali, sebelum menyiram tanaman. Ampas juga ampuh mengusir bekicot perusak tanaman.

3. Cangkang telur : Kalsium yang ada pada cangkang telur dapat memperkuat tangkai tanaman. Hancurkan cangkang telur, lalu sebarkan di sekitar tanaman sebulan sekali.

Ternyata tidak semua sampah benar-benar sampah yaa.. hihi

Anything!
