The Unforgettable Bunaken

This trip at Bunaken was unbelievably unforgettable.

Despite of all those fuckin' AMAZING corals (which are obvious), we met lots of nice people and having such a wonderful time.

Started with a coincidentally matching schedule and kindness from uncle Budi who let us join him to Bunaken with his diving team from Manado. Yep, all those friendly divers, who now become our good friends.

And oh, also we got chance to try diving intro, which was so exciting, ho ho...

Then at the Bunaken Island, we were so welcome by Lorenso, the owner of the Lorenso cottage. Lorenso, a very nice humble guy, who now becomes our good friend as well.

It's so nice to visit a beautiful place. But it would be even nicer to realize that you're going with right person, and meeting the right people. All those captured moments, were practically unforgettable :).

A Precious Beauty

Oh Lord... it's so beautiful down here.
You're amazing, this is amazing.
I've never seen a beauty like this...

The color of the water is turquoise...
Oh, look! thousands of cute fish!!! Gosh!
Ah, these corals are in blue, green, and yellow color... wonderful.
Hey! I find Nemo!
This Clownfish is pretty big, yet still cute with it's stripes.

Woow... everywhere is full of sea flowers, tons of fish and colorful corals. I really feel like in the middle of a garden.
No wonder this place is called Sea Garden.

Yes, this is Bunaken Sea Garden.
Yes, this is Indonesia.
And yes, I'm the proud one :).

Mood VS Deadline :))))

I was in a deadline, lots of work to be done before I flew to Manado, North Celebes, in the next morning.

But my eyes were just wandering, seeing the sunflower picture on my desk, then a bucket of sunflower, then a word "Girasole" on a sticker label stuck on my wall, it's a sunflower field in Italy, very famous one, and it's my dream to get there as well.

I was just realize (more), how interesting sunflower is... It's so attractive, bright, cheerful and full of spirit!

My eyes kept wandering, till it stopped on a white spot area, left on my wall, precisely above the sketch of buildings in Amsterdam. Then suddenly I took my cousin's crayon, went up to the table and reached the wall, drawing a big sunflower on the wall, and it was going very well and full of good mood! Oh dear, it felt so great! When you got the mood to create, for me it's so precious, more than your deadline. Ha ha, doesn't mean I put aside my responsibility, sure I'll finish it.

But really...
Even in the midst of a deadline, the sudden mood to create things must be prioritized.
That's my belief :).
