My recent post is a quote. Now i post another quote. This one comes from mother Teresa; again, i got this quote from criminal minds series. Life o life… there you go.

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is bliss, taste it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Life is life, fight for it.

Mother Teresa

Bumbu rahasia

July 5, 2010

Dua malam terakhir ini gw mendapat pelajaran bahwasanya setiap masakan spesial itu punya bumbu rahasia yang bikin rasanya enyak2…. Sebenernya juga bukan rahasia banget si.. wong bumbunya bisa di dapetin secara bebas bukan pake mantra ato apa.

Berdasarkan pengamatan asal2an gw, kwetiaw jogja food yg gw pesen dua malem yang lalu punya bumbu rahasia bawang putih. Tehnik nya ialah kwetiaw goreng dimasak pake bumbu biasa dengan  cara yang biasa juga cumaa….. pas terakhir mau disajiin, sang koki memasukan satu siung bawah putih yang telah dikeprok (cant find another word instead of keprok T_T) / dimemarkan. Diauduk sekali dua kali, lantas : Voila! Kwetiaw goreng dengan bau bawang putih yang khas siap untuk disantap.

Kalo tadi malem ceritanya lain lagi. Tadi malem gw pesen capcay goreng di sekitaran Jakal km 4,5 tapi gw lupa nama lapaknya. Aneh juga si capcay goreng tapi warnanya coklat, capcay kan biasanya warnanya putih butek ga jelas gitu. Ini jatohnya kaya  nasi gila si. Yang buat spesial ialah harganya, masak sepuluh ribu per porsi! di teknik penyajiannya. Capcay yang baru mateng langsung disajikan di atas daun pisang. Hmm.. bau daun pisangnya keluar. Selain itu efek kompor areng keknya juga nambah cita rasa spesialnya. Bau masakan yang dimasak pake areng emang khas. Jadi inget juga nasi goreng solo di balubur yang dimasak pake areng juga.

Sepertinya gw harus lebih rajin mencari tempat2 yang punya bumbu rahasia kaya gini deh.

Maju terus cita rasa!

Adrenaline junkie

Have you ever heard the adrenaline junkie? It is an alias for people who are attracted to dangerous sports or activities. Every person has his own opinion about them but for me, I am a kind of person who supports the adrenaline junkie under one condition: they play the game safely.

Most of you maybe already know such extreme sport cum dangerous game such as: bungee jumping, sky-diving, rock climbing, rafting, and so on. Those activities are extremely dangerous. It is very not recommended for a person who happens to have an abnormal condition on his heart. Playing those games will give you sudden adrenaline pump to your body that makes your heart beats faster. That’s why we called them an adrenaline junkie; a person who looks for a sudden adrenaline pump.

What I support is the professional adrenaline junkie and I absolutely oppose the amateur one.

The professional one is an athlete or a person who already knows the risk and mitigates the risk thoroughly. Let’s take a look on the examples. An athlete of a rock climbing is well prepared before they go climbs. He sees the rock and makes a route plan. Before he starts to climb, he double check his equipment so he believes that his equipments are ready because he knows his life is rely on his equipments. He mitigates the risk of falling by making nodes on his hanger. So when he decides to climb, he is sure that it is safe to climb the rock. If accident happens, it is definitely an accident and anyone or anything cannot be taken into account for that.

On the contrary, there is also the amateur one. This person not only endangers himself but also other life. As an example, a reckless driver speeds up in a congested toll road. As you know, it is not safe to drive fast in that situation even you and your car is fully protected. The sloppy maneuver in the road can make an unexpected respond by other driver thus creating a fatal result at the traffic. Car accident is one of the types that are usually created by amateur adrenaline junkie. To sums up, I believe that being an adrenaline junkie is okay. As long as the junkie is not put his life or others life at stakes it is not a moral degradation to be an adrenaline junkie. So before you do anything “stupid” please be sure that it is safe to do that. Life is only once so we better not to waste it.
