Trips to place that manufacture Phinisi ships

In accordance with the title of my post this time, that invites you to travel to where the legendary ship of Phinisi is manufactured. Indeed, I also have never visited the place Phinisi shipbuilding, but it seems very interesting to visit.
It is said that the boat building Phinisi, Bonto Bahari Bulukumba in Sulawesi, Indonesia is the actual maker Phinisi ship. But it was other countries that develop Phinisi such as Japan, Malaysia, Brunei and Australia. So that citizens of Bonto Bahari Bulukumba Phinisi concern that boat will be given a patent in the making. And already there is evidence that Phinisi is a ship that pride of the nation of Indonesia, namely in the form of reliefs on temple of Borobudur.

Phinisi architecture
Internationally, new Phinisi ship known since 1906 ago. The boat is the most modern form of traditional boat of Bugis-Makassar who have undergone a long evolutionary process. The ship was built as a sailing boat with two poles and seven to eight strands of the screen. In general these are small boats with a carrying capacity of between 20 to 30 tons and length between 10 to 15 meters. Almost the entire boat building done with simple techniques and using the engine power is very minimal.

The parts of the ship Phinisi

> Anjong = triangle in front as a counterweight.
> Sombala = main screen, large-sized to 200 m.
> Tanpasere = small screen triangle on each main pole.
> Cocoro pantara = auxiliary screen in front of
> Cocoro tangnga = auxiliary screen in the middle
> Tarengke = auxiliary screen in the back.

Phinisi Nusantara has recorded the historic moment successful voyage across the Pacific Ocean to get to Vancouver, Canada. This vicious famous Ocean conquered by a ship made of wood, Phinisi archipelago. Although initially the mission of this spectacular cruise doubt many people, but the Captain. Gita ardjakusuma along with 11 people crew managed to accomplish this task properly. Obstacles on the notoriously dangerous shipping lanes in the Pacific Ocean can be overcome by good until Phinisi archipelago docked safely in Vancouver.

Wow .. a lot of wealth of this nation. I Love Indonesia. (Traditional Phinisi Architecture has arrange again same as in Borobudur Relief and its also success sail the ocean, and you can see it in Borobudur museum now).

A few weeks ago I became one member who is active in making thread there, but obviously I return to the passive member again. Have joined since 2009 but I'm still a newbie till now and only have 3 threads post that I made a few weeks ago. hahaha is another source which gives inspiration to create the idea of posting. But I am not a plagiarist 100%, from's thread and's news as source of the idea of my posts then I developed my writing style and the result of my blog has a new post. Well ... took the idea from other site and give credit to the source does not violate the copyright, but if co-past 100% it was plagiarism and that the law prohibited. hehehe.
Okay much for sharing about where the idea of writing in my blog, which obviously I do not like co-past 100%. I can tell my blog purely from me, but taking ideas from other places (with a little co-past). See.. I'm honest blogger.

Tabasco Original Red, make meals have great hot!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

I live in Indonesia, and many of Indonesia people love spicy food so much. And when we are eating pizza, it's tasteless without spicy things. There is many choice of spicy things that we call "sambal", but someday my friend offer me a Tabasco Original Red. Tabasco Original Red is his favorite flavor of Tabasco and he recommended it to me. He said that TABASCO® Original Red is "So Much More Than Hot." Then I think it's time to try something new and different hot taste. I share it to my sister, she said she love Tabasco Original Red also. We loves the mixed taste of salt, red pepper, and vinegar in Tabasco Original Red.
My friend is pizza fan, for him there is no delicious pizza without Tabasco Original Red.

I don't want to eat fish before go to travel with public bus

This time I love to talk about travel tips like the title "I don't want to eat fish before go to travel with public bus".
Yess.. It's about my own experience and I have take a research on it many time. Do you sometime I get vomit when I go for traveling with public bus and sometime I don't get it. Then I have question "Why?" I try to find what the reason that make me can vomit when go by bus. As I feel vomit in bus is something shameful for me, yah.. because I hate it, it's disgusting, it's uncomfortable, it's smelly, it's make me look bad, and other people hate vomit people in the bus (me also) because it can make other people get nauseous feeling (me also!).

Some people thinking that when I got vomit in the bus because of I get dizzy on my head. But I tell that they are wrong!! What happening is my stomach feel so week, I don't get any dizzy feeling but its suddenly feel like want to vomit. And I think it must have some reason. Then I try to remembering about what I ate before I go. I found it, I eat something fishy. I get weak tummy, maybe it's gen from my mom because she also has weak stomach and my sister also.
Here is about my weak stomach:
I know that I have weak stomach since I'm kid, I can't see something disgusting like as a piece of small house lizard feces, it can make me vomit. Then I also can't smell something bad and smelly, its also can make me vomit. I can't eat strong food like to much spicy or other, it can make me get stomachache (it's worst after I get typus symptom and I ever feel want to falling down because can't hold my stomachache).
Back to I don't want to eat fish before go to travel by public bus, so what the connection between fish and bus?
I try to answer it, my weak stomach feel not comfortable because of bus's vibration and it's become worst if I ate fishy food before go by bus (i feel like i get burning on my stomach). Then without any dizziness, a disgusting vomit come out. najis
So.. if you feel that you get weak stomach and you want to travel by bus so you better eat prevent vomit medicine and avoid to eat fishy food. And don't forget also to choose comfortable bus that you have trust on it. And enjoy your travel!!
But I suggest you, if you have weak stomach and you want to travel by public bus then what does and don't:
1. Eat anti vomit drug for travel at least 30 minutes before going to travel.
2. Don't eat something fishy.
3. Bring plastic sack.
4. Bring tissue.
5. Bring aromatherapy which has smell like mint or you like the smell but not make you dizzy.
6. Don't feels guilty when you vomit, because actually you are sick.
7. Don't angry with your self.
8. If you can get fresh air then go to get it.
9. Avoid perfume that smell to strong.
10. Choose good and comfortable bus.
11. Don't forget to pray before go, because it will make you feels better.
Good Luck.
