Visiting Bekantan in Pulau Kaget with Tina and Jan.

I always visit Floating Market often; could be Kuin Floating Market or Lok Baintan. But, in my current history exploring Banjarmasin, there is one thing that I never do. That is seeing Bekantan directly; an original fauna from South Borneo. Actually there is a Bekantan that you can see in the city Park, but it's just a statue. 

Last august, I've got a couchsurfing couple from Germany to host; Tina and Jan. When I read their request, it seem that they're really understanding about Couchsurfing concept which made me eager to host them.

[Monthly Note] Between August and September

Another month has passed in 2014, and in the next 4 months later I really should finish my thesis before the end of the year as fast as possible, recently my little bro has surpassed me in the college study by getting his first degree through D3 study. What can I say last month, I completed the short course because there was one subject that has not been completed yet. By the way, talking about the thesis, I think I will not write anything about how I get started. The point is, no more delaying nor writing plans on my monthly note, for the next three months i have to finish it, period.
