Memilih? Memilih adalah salah satu hal yang paling sulit untuk aku lakukan. Aku mencintainya, dia dan dirinya. Aku merasa bahwa aku terlalu serakah apabila aku tidak bisa memilih satu di antara mereka bertiga. “Cukup! Aku tidak bisa jika aku harus selalu seperti ini, aku harus bisa memilih satu di antara mereka bertiga” Suara hatiku terus-menerus menegur dengan kalimat seperti itu.“Hey babe, How are you today? How was your day? I miss you a lot! Less than one months i will go to there” Pesan text dari Ryan, Ryan adalah pacarku yang saat ini kita menjalani long distance relationship dari Singapore dan Indonesia. Aku merasa bahagia mendapat pesan text seperti itu. Wajar karena selama 5 bulan kita tidak bertemu dan akhirnya dia datang untuk menemuiku.Tiba-tiba, aku serentak bingung dengan hubunganku yang lain yaitu dengan Roy dan Alex. Roy adalah lelaki Indonesia yang kuliah di Singapore dan Alex adalah lelaki Indonesia rekan kerja di kantorku. Aku tidak peduli dan mengabaikan kekhawatir…

Today Is A Big Day!

Gambar
Pagi ini setelah makan pagi, aku berjalan ke luar kamarku. Dan di sana aku bertemu seorang bapak yang sedang olah raga pagi. Ia berdiri sejenak, sekedar basa-basi memberikan salam. Dia lalu memandang tajam ke dalam mataku, dan bertanya, "Tarsisius, is it a big day today?" Aku gak tahu mau menjawab apa. Dalam hati aku berseru, "Hari ini tak ada rencana istimewa selain mengikuti kelas seperti biasanya. Dan apa yang terjadi hari ini? Aku gak tahu? Di akhir hari ini aku pasti akan mampu memberikan jawaban baginya, apakah hari ini adalah hari yang istimewa."Sebelum saya mampu menjawab, ia telah memberikan jawabannya sendiri, "Oh well, it is just an ordinary day like yesterday!" Aku tertegun! Betulkah hari ini tak bedanya dari hari kemarin? Apakah hari ini hanyalah sekedar repetisi, hanyalah sebuah perulangan dari pengalaman masa silam? Bila demikian, betapa membosankan hari yang baru ini. Bila demikian tak ada sesuatu yang bisa kita harapkan.Dan sebelum saya s…

How to Plant Date Palm Tree Seeds

Kampoeng Kurma.  Date palms (Phoenix dactylifera) thrive in warm, dry climates within U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9 through 11, where they are widely used as landscape ornamentals for their feathery fronds and striking, fan-shaped growth habit. Although they are most commonly propagated from offshoots, date palms will also grow reliably well from fresh seeds.

The seeds require no pretreatment and will germinate quickly once exposed to warm, moist conditions. The resulting seedlings mature slowly and must be grown in pots for at least one year before planting them outdoors.

Gather date palm seeds in summer after the fruit fully ripens. Wait until the fruit darkens and begins to wrinkle or exude a fine, sugary sap. Collect several fruits to increase the likelihood of finding a viable seed.Tear the fruit in half by hand. Pick out the large, pointed seed. Soak the seed in a bowl of water for 24 hours to soften the flesh. Pick out and discard any seeds that float to…

Kampoeng Kurma: What Are Dates Good For?

Kampoeng Kurma.  While dates don't appear to be particularly special with their oddly wrinkled, brown exterior, they're satisfyingly chewy and flavorful. Undoubtedly a favorite since the Garden of Eden, dates are considered a drupe because they contain a single pit or stone at the center.

Date palms, which produce these little beauties, were brought to America's Western coast by Spanish missionaries in the late 1700s. Medjool dates, which originated in Morocco, were introduced in the U.S. in 1927 when 11 shoots were placed in quarantine in Nevada for seven years. The nine plants that survived were taken to Southern California in 1935, where 24 offshoots were planted in 1944.

Reportedly the most labor intensive to grow and harvest, medjools are not only one of the most prominent varieties – they are the only one that can be picked and eaten fresh.

Date palms begin to bear fruit at three to five years, and are fully mature at 12 years. Cultivated in arid regions of the world…
