.... plaisir d'amour ....

early morning with andrea bocelli's plaisir d'amour on earphones whenever find my cell received a message "ready to go downstream?"
an early morning scene by the rivers of southern kalimantan. barito and martapura.
floating market!
let's go, let's go, let's go ....
nice and humble and friendly and eating much also :)

... venice of south east asia ....

still in arguably with a good friend of mine; which one is addressed as "venice of the east" [means south east asia] to be exact? is that damnoen saduak at thailand, along the klongs of bangkok or banjarmasin?
he said "banjarmasin" .... now ... i have the same perception. but of course everybody can choose their own opinion. i do enjoy this morning scene along the rivers. from dusk 'till 08.00 am.

... rarely reunion ....

i was longing to have this picture at least once in my lifetime. floating market with friendly sunrise and nice people gather around me. thank for the long weekend in this september. i made my plan to visit banjarmasin. coincidence, my master of photography [uhmmm!!! sorry jeng soes :)] susilo w. a.k.a jeng soes just flew there for a job vacancy. what a nice companion will be!!! plus, another friend, budi a.k.a bodong already working there for the last 3 years. so here happened a small rarely nice reunion among us. bodong meet jeng soes for the very first time. and it caused by noisy @rie, hahaha! matur nuwun yo guys, asyik tenan mlaku-mlaku bareng. jeng soes, thanks for gorengan and photography tricks and 'macgyver' tripod. bodong, thanks for the transportation and being my manager to enter the village of dayak kaharingan tribe at loksado and malaris. gonna miss you guys!!!
