    Deal Diamond! I will goal for a 5 kg in one (2 would be more realistic) month

    My lovely Samarinda. I do remember the 2 first year Ramadan in Indonesia; continual cacophony 24/24 everyday. At the point they were playing music while the night, no way they will calm down 5 minute.

    Last year thing change. Following the sudden price rise of the fuel, people were a little bit short on their budget. I also suspect some willing to keep peace following some fight between different community. Probably using the fuel price rise as a good excuse... the speaker shut up. They don't really make more noise then habitually. No more cat-fighting-a -like sound outside.

    This year it's even more fade away. With the coming election, people have other thing to keep their mind busy than Ramadan.
    The habitual "opening" of ramadan with firework was... short stock of firework.

    My family in law are chinese and catholic and seriously, if I didn't know it was ramadan, I would not know!


    But... Yeah! It have less traffic in morning and the working day will be more short.

    Here it rain and flood every week.

    It have a part of my road to the office that have become dangerous to drive; rain have bring mud on the road from some new house construction. And nobody seem to care of cleaning the road from the mud!
    This same road is my "shortcut" (same length) for pass-by the center of the city and his traffic. 2 day ago they start to put new pavement on the main road, which create traffic and made people use my "shortcut" for avoid it, but the road is too much small, when 2 car meet the need to slow down a lot if not stop... imagine when 2 truck meet...
    As a result, my shortcut have become muddy slippery with traffic.

    Their is a house in our housing who is empty since loooong time. They said since 7 year the owner try to sold it and can't. Our housing have good reputation, not so long ago when the coal economy was at his high it didn't have a single house for sold... except this one.
    People have start to spread rumor about ghost/spirit.

    Yesterday, the owner of the house come to my father in law and offer him to make an house exchange. He will sold us his house for cheap (500 000) and buy our house.
    The house must be somewhere twice big than our and is on one of the biggest land of the housing which would be more than twice our land.

    ...... My father in law is interested, have a twice bigger house and land with money in his pocket.

    He don't seem to care at all about:
    - He will be like the last owner, stuck with a unsaleable house
    - Why the owner want live in the same housing but not in his house?
    - Why the owner want so much get rib of his house? ... For a house/land half size?
    - Does all the stress of the present owner is because of the address "4" which mean death in Chinese (the owner is chinese... as same as my father in law)

    My father in law don't seem to think at all...

    Already 3 week I'm trying to have new panel (side plastic) for my bike.
    they told me they are all stock except one or 2 item.
    I told them to call me when they will have all them...
    They never call me back... I go back to the store... for they check again their stock and told me they have NOTHING of what I want...

    I place a formal order and they told me they will call me back... yah sure!!!

    Yesterday the clutch cable broke, I had a temporary repair and this morning head to Yamaha store.
    Ask to change the cable for a new one and other service the motorcycle need.... and ask them if they have my part?
    YES they have! Don't ask me why they didn't call me...

    So... I have brand new shiny black side panel, new lower sportier handle bar, service the front suspension, the rear suspension already change for new a month ago.
    The bike start to feel really better.

    Feel... like in the way it drive.
    For the look, it is better, but still have the tank and front lamp to work out... later

    Overall.... I'm a happy man
