About Halloween Traditions

How’s your last Halloween? Was it fun enough? To have better Halloween, you should plan it in advance and recognize the traditions. Having known Halloween traditions makes you can identify what ever you should prepare for. Halloween is celebrated once a year, on October 31. It has ancestry in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holy day of All Saints, but nowadays is mainly a secular celebration.

For your information, here are some popular Halloween traditions that you should know:

Jack O’Lantern.
There’s no Halloween without Jack O’Lantern! This carved pumpkin is linked largely with the holiday Halloween. Usually the top of Jack O’Lantern is sliced off, and the inside flesh is dig out. You can carve on the pumpkin surface to make images, usually an outrageous face, and top is restored. At night, a light is put inside to light up the effect.

There are some various legends about Jack O’Lantern. An old Irish folk tale told about Stingy Jack, a lazy yet clever farmer who used a cross to catch the devil. One story said that Jack trapped the devil into climbing an apple tree, and once he was up there, Jack quickly put crosses around the trunk or carved a cross into the bark, so that the devil couldn't get down.

Unhappily, although Jack had passed away, his devil actions made him too sinful to go to heaven. However, the devil had promised not to take his soul, so he couldn’t go to hell, too. After that, Jack became known as Jack O’Lantern, roaming the earth eternally for a resting place.

Wear Halloween costumes and attend costume parties.
Since Halloween is celebrated only once a year, most people-perhaps included you- are willing to spend their times to find costumes that most suitable for them. Halloween is an enjoyable event and wearing costumes is fun for kids and adults, similarly.

When finding
Halloween costumes for kids, it’s better to ask their opinion first, what kind of costumes that they really love to wear. Children in pre school age usually have had their own dreaming costumes.

Till Death Do Us Part

>> May 25, 2010

Till death do us part
I will hold you
Till death do us part
I will be there for you
Till death do us part
I will protect you
Till death do us part
I will love you
Till death do us part? What does it actually mean?
Is it about being together, Until we die?
Till death do us part
I shall carry you
Till death do us part
I shall care for you
Till death do us part
I shall be with you
Till death do us part
I shall love you
Till death do us part
Will not be the end of my love
For as long as I exist in body or soul
My love for you will carry on
-Curtis Griffiths-

I guess this poem describes perfectly the beauty and the strong commitment of love between Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie (Indonesia’s former president in 1998-1999) and Hasri Ainun Habibie.

Hasri Ainun Habibie died at May 22th, in the age of 72, in Muenchen, Germany. Today, May 25th, most Indonesian people watched Hasri Ainun Habibie’s funeral ceremony at Kalibata Heroes Cemetery in Jakarta, Indonesia. I can’t hold my eyes from crying. I was so touched. I can feel the great loss feeling of BJ. Habibie. Fani Habibie, his younger brother, said that BJ. Habibie has never left his wife. He’s always next to his wife, until death separates them.

Spending Holiday in the Kitchen

>> May 14, 2010

Yesterday is holiday. I was so glad that my husband was at home. Having no plan to go anywhere, he asked me to cook something together. Yes, why not? It’s been long time enough since the last time we’re doing it.

We have much favorite food; one of them is ‘pempek’. It’s so familiar in Indonesia. For you who’ve never known ‘pempek’, I don’t know how to describe it precisely. Well, I guess, it’s like fried fish balls, but in different shapes and gravy. Pempek gravy tastes sweet, sour and spicy.

If we want to eat ‘pempek’, we usually go out and buy, or eat it at a food stall. So, it’s our first time cooking ‘pempek’, and we don’t have the recipe! Searching the recipe in Google…aha…the recipes are different each other! We selected one that is simple enough and decided to do a little experiment.

Actually, he’s totally in charge, I’m just his assistant. Here are some photos of cooking process :




The look is quite good, but it isn’t tender enough. We think that we’ve added too much flour while making the dough. But it’s okay, next time will be better!
