Chinese New Year of Ox
by. Dolvin ≈ January 27, 2009
2009 - Ox Year
Rain in the beginning of Ox year.. may bring good fortune this year, I hope.. ^^

Preparations for the Chinese New Year of Ox, 2009 will begin months in advance so that the celebrations be observed in the highest magnitude and splendor. As the different years of the 12 year cycle are characterized by different animals, people born on the different years also feature different traits and characters and most often then not, they are believed to be influenced and inspired by the animals of the particular year they are born in. With this article on Chinese New Year of Ox, 2009 we strive to hold forth the interesting characteristics and features of the Ox and how babies born in this year can be expected to display similar traits.

All years ending in an odd number are Yin and the ones with an even number ending are considered to be the Yang forms according to the Chinese methods of the calender cycle. Therefore the Ox year 2009 will have Yin forms along with the character of the Ox. Ox characterizes a dependable, patient, methodical and calm, hardworking, materialistic as well as an ambitious character. The Ox years so far have been 1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997 and now 2009 followed by 2021 (according to the 12 year cycle).

People born in the Chinese New Year of Ox, 2009 will preponderantly have the below mentioned traits in their character: Leadership qualities, dependable, great organizers, loyal, patient as well as strong and responsible. They are also some of the best people one can have as colleagues in the work place as they are believed to posses strong work ethics and display their creative side as well, especially when it comes to decorating their home.

Since the people born in the Ox year are also trusted to be reliable and logical, people generally turn towards them for suggestions and guidance. Their honesty and eye for details also helps them to prove their worth both in the workplace as well as in their personal lives.

However there are a few negative traits associated with the character of the Ox that also is reflected through the people born in the ox years. Attributes like being narrow minded, stubborn, with low public relations skills and also very far from being emotional are generally associated with people born in this year.

So, Gong Xi Fa Cai... Happy Chinese Nu Year 2009..
May it bring for you good luck, good fortune and good times.. ^^

Sanssouci Palace - German
by. Dolvin ≈ December 17, 2008
Sanssouci Palace the most popular of Potsdam's palaces, is located in Potsdam German.

Sanssouci - Bird's Eye ViewThe location and layout of Sanssouci above a vineyard reflected the pre-Romantic ideal of harmony between man and nature, in a landscape ordered by human touch. Winemaking, however, was to take second place to the design of the palace and pleasure gardens. The hill on which Frederick created his terrace vineyard was to become the focal point of his demesne, crowned by the new, but small, palace—"mein Weinberghäuschen" ("my little vineyard house"), as Frederick called it. With its extensive views of the countryside in the midst of nature, Frederick wanted to reside there sans souci ("without a care") and to follow his personal and artistic interests


Sanssouci ParkThe garden front of the palace is decorated by carved figures of Atlas and Caryatids; grouped in pairs between the windows, these appear to support the balustrade above. Executed in sandstone, these figures of both sexes represent Bacchants, the companions of the wine god Bacchus, and originate from the workshop of the sculptor Friedrich Christian Glume. The same workshop created the vases on the balustrade, and the groups of cherubs above the windows of the dome.

Sanssouci Palace History

Sanssouci InteriorA king who joined his troops on the battlefield, Frederick the Great commissioned Sanssouci Palace in 1747 as a summer palace where he could have a respite from battle sans souci - without worry. You can see his fatigue in the many statues: the warrior in marble, his sword in its sheath, his shield down, a look of weariness on his face.

Most of what visitors see is the ornate original - not reconstructions or duplicates - and perhaps German's most impressive example of rococo architecture. In front of it, vineyard terraces stretch in geometric shapes into the park.

The architect G.W. v. Knobelsdorff implemented the royal plans 1745-1947. The result was a one-story building with a cupola over the oval marble hall and the vestibule in the center, and only four rooms on each side. The northern entrance was flanked by a semi-circular colonnade, the southern front decorated with 36 sandstone sculptures between the tall ground floor windows.

The interior, the walls, ceilings and doors of all rooms were richly and intricately embellished and furnished in the rococo style. The palace gained additional charm through its setting. The southern hill slope, called the Weinberg, was shaped into six terraces. The area at the base was transformed into a baroque style garden with a round pond (and later a fountain) in its center, with artistically cut hedges and flower beds and with many marble sculptures.

A few years after the completion of the palace a picture gallery with the Dutch garden was added on the hill slope to the east, the similar new chambers with the rose garden to the west of the palace. They form the rococo core in the park of Sanssouci.

Life Reflection :)
by. Dolvin ≈ November 19, 2008
1. Never explain yourself to any one. Because the person who likes you doesn't need it, and the person who dislikes you won't believe it.

2. When we wake up in the morning, we have two simple choice: Go back to sleep and dream, or wake up and chase those dreams. Choice is yours...

3. Don't make promise when you are in joy. Don't reply when you are sad. Don't take decision when you are angry. Think twice..., Act wise.

4. When you keep saying you are busy, then you are never free. When you keep saying you have no time, then you will never have time. When you keep saying that you will do it tomorrow, then your Tomorrow will never come.

5. We make them cry who care for us. We cry for those who never care for us. And we care for those who will never cry for us. This is the truth of life, its strange but true. Once you realize this, its never too late to change.

6. Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life...

Soulmate
by. Dolvin ≈ November 18, 2008
Yesterday, fren of mine asking what is soulmate?
so, I search the meaning of it.. hohoho... here we go...

Soulmate
(or soul mate) is a term sometimes used to designate someone with whom one has a feeling of deep and natural affinity, friendship, love, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality and/or compatibility. A related concept is that of the twin flame or twin soul – which is thought to be the ultimate soulmate, the one and only other half of one's soul, for which all souls are driven to find and join. However, not everyone who uses these terms intends them to carry such mystical connotations.

Soul Mate Descriptions


Reincarnation: Some believe that a soul mate is someone with whom a person has shared other life times through reincarnation.

The soul mate could be a friend, business partner, parent, child, sibling, spouse or other family member. These soul mates can be of the same or opposite sex.

Other Half: Others believe, like the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, that a soul mate is a person's "other half". This concept was the basis of the movie, "The Butcher's Wife" where the idea of "split-aparts" searching for one another was explored.

People all over the world believe that we are all searching for someone to make us whole and to share our journey of life with.

Kesaran Pasaran
by. Dolvin ≈ October 18, 2008
Few days ago, I saw this cute phone straps in kaskus.. and I just wondering what is Kesaran Pasaran? It says.. Kesaran Pasaran is a Mysterious Fluffy Thing of a white fairy or angel's feather that can bring you good luck.. hmmm... 

so, in this saturday duty.. I do search about this thing huehehehe...
(btw, why.. this room is so cold? brrrr..)

And this is information 'bout it that I got from wiki.. hohoho...

Kesaran PasaranAlthough it appears at first like a small white fuzzball, Kesaran Pasaran is an extremely useful and lucky yōkai to whomever encounters it. Unknown in its origin (though one legend suggests it as a gift from angels), Kesaran Pasaran is notable for bringing good luck and happiness to anyone who encounters it. More intriguingly, the amount of the small fuzzballs can quickly multiply if kept within the vicinity of face powder for a period of time: the more Kesaran Pasaran, the more good luck! The yōkai is initially encountered by Miki during a Christmas party, who initially uses its luck abilities and its multiplication trick to grant all her desires, but ultimately ends up saving her friends and giving a happy holiday to the entire town in the process. Later on, the Kesaran Pasaran are revealed to be the "yōkai of ultimate good", saving both the town of Dōmori, and ultimately the world, from the unleashed power of the ultimate evil yōkai: Yamato no Orochi!
