A ‘Raise’ To The Top…

with 6 comments

I was googling around when this particular word came up to my mind. My dad talked about this soo many times before and I also read it before on nat geo magz.. The word was.. *drumroll please…*

Future Dubai
Future Dubai

DUBAI

A fascinating city with never-before-seen-except-in-sci-fi architectures. Unimaginable to some and out of this world to some (overstated a bit there.. ^.^v). This almost a kilometer high tower on the side here is now the tallest man-made structure in the world. And the people whose responsible for it has intended to keep it that way.

The towers’ name is Burj Dubai, and if you’re interested on its update check their web.

Beside this 800 m or so tower, Dubai is also famous for its man-made islands. If I’m not mistaken they’d made two types of islands for sale, The Palms and The World. Interested? ^.^

Dubai is truly a sci-fi wonderland. It has an underwater hotel, a building with exoskeleton and coming up a first ever spinning building.

Okay, enough of Dubai for now. Let’s fly to a city with another one of the kind skyscraper that was called the tallest building in the world before the Burj..

TAIPEI

Taipei 101

Taipei 101

Taipei 101 is currently the world’s tallest completed building on earth standing proudly with 509 m of height. It consists of 101 stories above the ground.  The construction of Taipei 101 was started in 1999, and finished in 2004 with the total cost was about 1,7 billion US dollars. This tower has the worlds fastest elevators (doubledecker) they can get as fast as 63 km / h. The indoor observation deck is on the 89th floor (382m). The total weight ofTaipei 101 is 700,000 tonnes, which is such a mass that could possibly make an earthquake. The structure is capable to withstand the largest earthquakes. The 800 ton damper on the top of thetower can reduce up to 40% of the movements. The Taipei 101 Mall is a 6-story shopping mall inside the building.

Dimulai Lagi….

with 6 comments

Sebenarnya perjalan ni dah dimulai sejak 1 Desember 2009 lalu… Wuiiih, dah setahun yak?? ^.^ Lots of excitements, lots of patience, lots of things to learn… Yup…

This next piece of writing is just the beginning of everything… Mang gak menyenangkan, but I have to admit that what had happened that day will linger in my mind forever… [lebaaaaay]…

caution: the following writing contain ‘bahasa rojak’ (mixed languages ^.^)…. Proceed with your own risk…

semua bermula pada hari selasa, 1 desember 2009… hari dimana diriku memulai kembali suatu tantangan baru, sebuah kehidupan baru. Meski kemudian bus yg seharusnya mengantarku ke tujuan, baru berangkat 15 menit kemudian,. Still, so far so good… I felt excited..

Di jalan terkadang air mata berlinang. mengingat mereka yang ditinggalkan. Mulai hari ini, perjuanganku dan mereka akan berbeda. Tapi insya Allaah, menuju satu ending.. tuk ridhoNya.. Berniat tuk tak tidur disepanjang perjalanan, tapi tetap ja mata tak mau berkolaborasi. Tidur ayamlah jadinya… Oh iya, lupa. bus yang sangat besar dengan kapasitas more than 40 itu hanya dihuni oleh 6 penumpang.. sedaaap. Macam bus pribadi… ^.^v

Empat jam jadi tak terasa (iyalah, tidur taruih ma). Tiba di hentian yg kutuju. dengan pede hati kuturuni bus itu, feeling so thankful that i’m safe.. Diriku mulai berjalan menuju taxi, bus pun merangkak menuju hentian lain. tapi kok ada yang kurang ya? hmmm… hiyaaaah!!!!!!!!!!!!! tas koperkuuu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know, you must be laughing your head off right now… dua koperku yg berisi pakaian dan beberapa buku masih di bagasi bus!!!! I ran to reach the moving bus, feeling hopeless.. and kept thinking of how stupid i can be sometimes..

Tapi, alhamdulillaah, ada penumpang yg nyadar, kalo dir yikug tadinya dateng dengan dua jinjingan kok skarang gak bawa apa-apa? melihatku lari dan melambai2, dia nyadar klo ku mang lupa.. dia jalan ke supir, n stop the bus, before i can reach it.

I was soooo embarassed… if the bus was full, i don’t know what will happen. the humility!!!

Dengan nafas yg ngos-ngosan, dan setelah banyak terima kasih kepada pak supir dan sang ukhti yg memberhentikan bus, ku berjalan kembali menuju taxi, bukan lagi dengan kepala tegak penuh semangat, tapi tertunduk menahan malu… Hiks, tapi stidaknya kali ini ditemani dengan dua koper penyambung hidup… hiyaaaaah…..
