i promised my self to update this blog at least once a month. but i already prepared some in my spam now.
13 of february, theres a volcanic eruption in the island. the ash from it also covered my town even in another province. my school, and only my school was closed for six days witch the public school just closed for three days. then everything was postponed accordingly, even our field trip to Semarang (it should be 19th but we went there a week later on 26th).
we're too excited in the beginning since they said we'll trail the story of "the king of sugar" Oei Tiong Ham, and go to the rest of his house in Semarang. we must to read his biography first before the field trip, but in the end we cant bc the owner of the house now didn't receive such a visit. Oei Tiong Ham was famous as "the king of sugar" in the past (late 1800s) he was the richest man in Asia at that time. his house formerly occupied half of the city of Semarang! the main house was about 9 acres and another 81 acres included a private zoo, lake etc (for example, the Chinese Town of Semarang was his backyard in the past lho). but the fortune brought a havoc to his 12 wives and 42 children! you will not regret to read his story. at least his beloved daughter, Oei Hui Lan the one who also have a biography book.
in the end, we went to Sam Poo Kong, Nissin factory, and the Chinese Town of Semarang. all of the place also had a related story with Oei family or at least chinese culture. well, its our first time to have a trip to another city. very happy to be with my force since 05:30 in the morning until midnight arrived at school in Yogyakarta. i took medication since feeling dizzy in the way to Semarang, afterwards I always fall asleep every time it has been in the bus :))
