Times Of Joy

Excuse the rant just now. Just a bit stressed out.
I need to do something like this again.

Just Wanna Say

...that some fellow Catholics piss me off.
This morning i went to Mass at the Holy Trinity Church in Kenyalang Park, my first time actually in that particular church. I arrived early to attend mass for a recently deceased friend and seated myself near the main door. Just as the Priest started his sermon a family walked in and sat behind me. Any Catholic reading will know that they were damn late.
The older of the children, a teenager had a runny nose and every 5 seconds would make this sniffling gagging snorting sound. OK, i am cool with that except that he could have use his fucking brains and gone out to blow his nose (along with his brains for all i care come to think of it now) and save us from the delightful sounds he was orchestrating.
Communion comes and all four of them troop down in line like dutiful Catholics, heads bowed. Thats fine. The thing that really irks me is that they rise and promptly leave even as the Priest was giving his final blessing.
Waddafak? I sincerely hope you burn in HELL for being such inconsiderate 'kurang ajar' Catholics.

Burn Baby Burn

Its been a long few days. Too much work, Too tight deadlines.
This is a series of photo's that show an old house being burnt in Kalimantan Barat in Indonesia.. Stumbled upon it while there when owner decided to burn it. I don't know why as we didn't stick around to 'interview' him ok?
The fire took a bit longer to burn initially. But when the fire got going it sure got going. The smoke was amazing. The timber was very dry as there was a lound crackling sound. And then the roof caught fire.
Then it really got going and we beat a hasty retreat. It was getting way too hot and we were too close for comfort. Damn. It was frightening.
Ok, safer distance but still scary.
All over in less than 3 minutes flat.
[InnerVoice] I really don't care why he burnt his old house but you must be a bit weird anyway to even consider it. I do wish we stuck around to ask him if he was mad.

As I Mature...

i've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.

Flying Squirrel?

This taken at Gunung Serapi at about 400 meters. I noticed it clambering up the dead tree trunk and didn't have a clue what it was until it took off gliding into a trio of tall tree's. Must have been at least a distance of almost 200 meter's. Amazing to have been a silent witness.
[InnerVoice] You better start thinking of placing a watermark on all your photo's before they get ripped off like before. Remember?

Tonight I Learned

that i might need to go to Kendawangan in Kalimantan Barat again. 4 hour testicle thumping speedboat ride from Ketapang which in itself is almost nowhere.
Remote and isolated. Sandflies and mosquitoes from hell. Canned food for days on end. Freaky weather. Restless sleep. No running water. Shitting in the bush and praying something doesn't bite your quivering ass. I have nothing nice to say about the place.
[InnerVoice] You are so going to suffer. Again.

The Overgrown Retic

Some of you who have been reading from before will already know i have a pet python. I realised today that it is getting too big too fast. Seems like only a few weeks ago i held it in my hand. I think it can have me for dinner now.
Seriously, i need to really put a tape to it and measure. My guess is a minimum 18 foot. That's one of the 4 kilo plus chickens from the poultry market in the main bazaar it is eating. Any volunteer want to help measure?
