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…..

I had two goldfish

with 5 comments

On previous Sunday, my mom and dad brought home 7 cute little fish home and a box-shaped aquarium. My siblings and I were just¬†ecstatic because we were not aloud to have any pets before, not until now. We had asked for pets like cats or hamters or cute guinea pigs for hundreds of time (lebaaay). But our parents never get tired of saying ‘No’ to us. I guess by having 7 children in a house is enough to make a riot and turn the house up side down. So maybe, just maybe, we’ve been very well behaved that they decided to get us 2 goldfish an 5 tiger-something-fish as starters.. Yaaayy…

Goldie looked just like this (of course..)

Without further delay, we filled the aquarium tank with fresh tap water and placed some decorations like rocks and shells (we’ve been collecting them from our trip to beaches). Then we moved the little cute and healthy fish to their new home, gently. We didn’t want to upset the fish. ūüôā

There… Our fish had settled.. Or not. Roughly an hour later, one of the goldfish started to float. It moved a little, but it was floating. We noticed that one of its fin was damaged and there was a speckle of blood on another. We were horrified. Our very first pet is going to die an hour after it was bought??? Noooo!!!

 

We started to examine our new aquarium. By saying examine means that we were sitting closely to the aquarium, all 7 of us.. Then we found out what had happened. The tiger thing nipped the goldfish’s fins! And the pet shop owner said they will be okay living together.. Hufff!! So that was our first mistake and we learned it the hard way. Never ever¬†put green-tiger-barb in the same aquarium with goldfish.

 I got this article about greenie just now from here..

“Tiger Barbs are notorious for nipping the fins of Angel fish, and Tiger Barbs should nor be kept with small fish like Neon Tetras and Guppies, that are usually bullied by the bigger Tiger Barbs.”¬†

¬†We had to say goodbye to the dying fish.. ūüė¶

Little guy, big ambition.. huahaha (ups)

¬†At least we had one more goldfish on Monday.¬†I evacuated the surviving goldfish to¬†a round container (my siblings were at school at that moment). It was big enough for the fish but¬†I didn’t have any pump to circulate the water. So, I thought it’s going to be okay for a day, because I’ll rush to a store and get one tomorrow. But then, it was another mistake. Goldie was gasping for oxygen on the surface of the water. It was not a pleasant sight.

¬†Here’s another info I just found. According to Mr. Wiki, Goldfish need a lot of oxygen and has a high waste output.

“Like most carp, goldfish produce a large amount of waste both in their faeces and through their gills, releasing harmful chemicals into the water.Build-up of this waste to tixic levels can occur in a relatively short period of time, which is often the cause of a goldfish’s sudden death. Because of this, goldfish need a large volume of water in which to live. For common and comet varieties, each goldfish should have about 20¬†gallons(US) or 75¬†liters of water. Fancy goldfish (which are smaller) should have about 10¬†gallons(US) or 37.5¬†liters per goldfish. The amount of ‘water surface area’ is also important in determining how many goldfish may live in a container, as water surface area determines how much oxygen diffuses and dissolves from the air into the water. A general rule is have one square foot of water surface area for every inch of goldfish length (370¬†cm¬≤/cm). If the water is being actively aerated by way of a water pump, filter, or fountain, a smaller volume of water is needed.”

 We said goodbye yet to our last goldie yesterday..

¬†One sure thing I’ve learned from this is it takes only a little research to find out about goldies to save them from the torture o f the tigers.. Oh well.. So friends, don’t do what I did

 .. Okay? It will save yourselves from grieving for the the lost goldies..
