A Kitty and Husband’s Hand

>> Feb 28, 2015

After the locked up incident and I rescued him from the next door neighbor’s rain gutter, my relationship with Koneng is much closer. Now he loves to sleep on my lap and often sleep on our bed.  The kitty might think that I'm his hero :)

My husband isn’t a big cat lover, but he allowed Koneng cuddled his hand :) 
I have cute shots for Camera Critters  and
Saturday's Critters. Sorry for less bright shots. I didn't use flashlight.


The Movement of Five Millions Biopori Holes


Have you ever heard the biopori word before? Biopori are small holes in the ground that useful for storing water. So when it rains, the water will be easily absorbed into the soil that has many biopori holes. During the dry season, the land around our home wouldn’t be drought because they have enough water reserves.

Lots of things that can be done to prevent flooding, one of them is by making biopori holes as much as possible. My city –Bogor-  is often referred to as the floods sender to Jakarta; that’s why it’s becoming one motivation of the Five Millions Biopori Holes. The City Government is targeting 5 million biopori holes in the next two years. Actually, this movement has been started since last year, but only reached 200 thousand holes. Now it will be followed by all elements of society, hopefully this target can be achieved.

Are you interested in making biopores in your home yard? Prior to participating in this movement, you need to know biopori more. The ones which make biopori holes in the ground naturally are soil worms and friends. We can help worms to make more holes in the yard by giving them food so they will form biopori  holes as we expected. The food is organic waste such as used vegetable, food scraps, leftover fruits, results cut grass, or dried leaves.

Find out how to make a biopori hole :
1. Make a hole using a 10 cm-diameter biopori drill with deep approximately 100 cm. If the drill tool has hit the rocks that difficult to penetrate, the drilling should be stopped even if it only 50 cm.
2. The hole mouth can be reinforced with cement thickness of 2 cm and 2-3 cm wide.
3. Can also be added PVC pipe diameter 10 cm with 10-15 cm long. PVC is used to prevent the collapse of the hole.
4. Fill organic waste from kitchen waste, leaves or grass into the hole.
5. If the yard where you make the hole frequented by people, cover the hole with wire or netting. But don’t shut it all, let air goes into the hole.

Organic waste which put into the hole will turn into compost. Thus, the hole that we created it also serves as a composting plant. This compost can be harvested from the hole every 3 months. Do not forget after harvest the compost; you must re-put the new organic waste into the hole to feed the microbes in the soil.

Thus, a small hole with 10 cm wide that we created turns out offering a lot of benefits: to save water, prevent flooding, also make compost. Let's help conserving environment water by making  biopori infiltration holes!


Scary Facts of the Ciliwung River inside Bogor Botanical Gardens

>> Feb 25, 2015

The Ciliwung River flows across my city Bogor and I have captured the river from different spots. But when talking about the Ciliwung River that runs inside Bogor Botanical Gardens, it turns out that there are some scary facts happened there.

The hanging bridge above the Ciliwung River that passes through the Botanical Gardens

The latest incident happened a few days ago. Last Sunday (Feb 22nd 2015), an unidentified female corpse was found floating in the Ciliwung River inside the Bogor Botanical Gardens, the discovery location was near the hanging bridge. Since it occurred at the weekend, this event shocked many visitors. The poor dead woman expected a homeless because her clothes condition were very shabby and unusual (in three layers). Once evacuated and performed outer post-mortem examination at the hospital, the body buried by the Social Welfare Department.

The Ciliwung River spot that located near the hanging bridge.
According to the Security Platoon Commander of the Bogor Botanical Gardens, it wasn’t  the first time, since 2004 there has been a record of six times invention. The bodies were found at some points in the Ciliwung River in the ​​Bogor Botanical Gardens area.

It’s allegedly due lots of infrastructure around the garden and the narrow river rocks that made the bodies float or stuck in the area. The certain thing is that the bodies didn’t fall in the Botanical Gardens, but mostly drifted from the upper region and stuck in the garden area which has lots of infrastructure. The death toll has never come from visitors. So, don’t let this fact makes you afraid to visit our city's beautiful garden!
