someday - two door cinema club

where do we start
if we will end apart?
where do we go from here?
it’s head versus heart.
it will all be clear
someday.

we hear that rumbling song in the distance.
it’s coming closer, but we don’t like to talk about it.

giving up the gun - vampire weekend

when i was seventeen
i had wrists like steel
and i felt complete
and now my body fades
behind a brass charade
and i’m obsolete

are you hurting the one you love? - florence + the machine

are you hurting the one you love?
you’d like to stay in heaven but the rules are too tough.

tough,
it’s just too tough.
tough,
it’s just too tough.

terrible love - the national

it’s a terrible love that i’m walking with
it’s quiet company
it’s quiet company
it’s quiet company

the only one - the black keys

you’re the only one
i’m so wrapped up in a daze
hoping this is just a phase
but when all is said and done
i know you are still the one

i will possess your heart - death cab for cutie

how i wish you could see the potential,
the potential of you and me.
it’s like a book elegantly bound but,
in a language that you can’t read
just yet.

best for last - adele

but, despite the truth that i know
i find it hard to let go and give up on you
seems i love the things you do

make you feel a way you’ve never felt before
and be all you need so that you’ll never want more
and you’ll say all of the right things without a clue
and you’ll be the one for me and me the one for you

falling - florence + the machine

sometimes i wish for falling
wish for the release
wish for falling through the air
to give me some relief
because falling’s not the problem
when i’m falling i’m in peace
it’s only when i hit the ground
it causes all the grief

the end’s not near - band of horses

you won’t see the pious praying
they’ll be too busy flaying
all the martyrs with better ways
to stop the world decaying

angels - the xx

and everyday
i’m learning about you
the things that no one else sees
and the end comes too soon
like dreaming of angels

bonus track: girl with the red balloon - the civil wars (post-graduation)

did she let him go or did the four winds blow him away?
does she even know she’s the girl with the red balloon?
keep her glass full of cheap champaigne
she will tell of the man with no name
smoke and mirrors have done her in
she’s in love and she won’t be again

The Demography of Ambon in the Seventeenth Century: Evidence from Colonial Proto-Censuses

The Ambonese Islands are one of the few areas in early modern Southeast Asia for which sources with statistical information about the demography of an indigenous population are still preserved. In this article an analysis will be made of these sources for the years between 1671 and 1695. Special attention will be paid to growth-rates and population densities.

Tentang: Suatu Tempat

sebuah dermaga kecil di Ambon (diambil dengan kamera analog, Superia expired Film)


Ini tentang sebuah tempat. Mungkin bukan sebuah, karena jumlahnya sangat banyak. Ini tentang suatu lokasi. Lokasi pertemuan, juga sebuah pemberhentian. Pertemuan bagi orang-orang dengan tujuan yang sama. Pemberhentian bagi mereka yang selesai melakukan perjalanannya. Katakanlah, stasiun. Atau kamu lebih suka menyebutnya sebagai terminal. Atau barangkali, bandara. Beberapanya menyebut dermaga terkadang. Yang manapun sama saja bagiku, tempat-tempat yang penuh cerita. Cerita tentang rasa. Bukan hanya bagiku, tapi pastinya bagi beberapa orang di suatu sudut belahan dunia sana. Bukan hanya merasakan, tapi juga melihat.

Pagi-pagi melihat hiruk pikuk stasiun. Dengan ragam gaya dan perawakan yang variatif. Ekspresi-ekspresi yang tak tergantikan. Ada yang segera beranjak, ada yang sedang menanti. Ada yang riang gembira, pula adanya yang harus melempar muka masam. Yang datang dengan senyum dan pelukan, bahkan wajah terheran-heran kadang pun ditemukan. Tempat-tempat yang sungguh menarik. Menarik tuk dirasakan, ataupun hanya sekedar memerhatikan.

Tidakkah kamu berpikir yang sedemikian? Tidak harus sih. Itu hanya kalau kamu setuju saja. Kalau kamu setuju, high five!

Ini hanya sebuah tulisan. Tulisan yang secara tak sengaja tertulis. Tanpa rencana. Muncul hanya karena dorongan kecil dari seseorang, dengan tambahan sebuah lagu yang terus menerus diulang. Tulisan ini tidak berarah, pula tak ada juntrungan pastinya. Tapi satu yang pasti, hanya sekedar ingin menyampaikan sedikit perasaan tentang tempat-tempat tersebut.

Tempat yang lagi-lagi, mempertemukan, dan memisahkan. Mempertemukan mereka yang berada dalam satu koridor yang sama. Memisahkan mereka yang mulai merealisasikan divergensi perjalanan masing-masing. Keluarga, sahabat, atau mungkin, pujaan hati. Siapapun itu. Sekedar senyum perpisahan yang kadang mengelukan, atau kadang untuk dinaikkan sekian derajat saja rasanya butuh perjuangan besar. Tentang langkah-langkah yang perlahan menjauh, dan godaan tuk menoleh kembali ke belakang sangat besar yang berujung tetap menatap ke depan demi kebaikan bersama.

Kalau kamu paham itu, mungkin kamu sedang tersenyum. Atau mengilas balik memorimu dengan beberapa orang yang kamu lambaikan tanganmu padanya. Atau bahkan, sebaliknya, kamu yang diberi lambaian. He he

Yang sedemikan memang selalu menyusahkan. Tidakkah kamu setuju?

Satu hal yang sekarang aku pahami. Untuk lebih mengabadikan pertemuan atau perpisahan tersebut, janganlah enggan tuk memberi sebuah pelukan, dan sedikit senyuman. Iya, pelukan yang diiringi dengan senyuman. Yang tulus nan ikhlas. Dan tentunya, dengan harap-harap yang tak hentinya terucap pada Sang Pencipta, untuk menyegerakan pertemuan berikutnya.

Ah, maafkan saya yang sedang meracau.

Selamat sore menuju malam.

Motorboats tip scales in favour of fish predators

London, Feb 6 (IANS) Noise from passing motorboats help double the chances of predators capturing fish as it increases stress levels in young coral reef fish and reduces their ability to flee, according to a study.


This is the first study to show that real-world noise, in this case the common noise of motorboats, can have a direct consequence on fish survival.

“We found that when real boats were motoring near to young damselfish in open water, they became stressed and were six times less likely to startle to simulated predator attacks compared to fish tested without boats nearby,” said marine biologist Stephen Simpson from Britain’s University of Exeter.

Simpson and his international research team used playbacks and real boat noise, to test the impact of motorboat noise on survival of young Ambon damselfish during encounters with their natural predator the dusky dottyback.

“The combination of stress and poor responses to strikes by predators is why these fish became such easy prey,” said collaborator Andy Radford from the University of Bristol.

The research team hopes the study findings would inspire better environmental noise management in coastal areas.

“If you go to the Great Barrier Reef, there is a lot of noise from motorboats in some places. But unlike many pollutants we can more easily control noise,” Simpson said.

The study findings were published recently in Nature Communications.

And the Award for Squishiest Cake Goes To...

Last March, I thought I had found the squishiest cake in the world. And I might have continued in this state of blissful ignorance had it not been for an airplane snack.

Twice during my trip to Indonesia was I handed a yellow, plastic-wrapped block mid-flight. Twice was I fascinated. Neither time was I sure it was cake.

+ Bika Ambon (a.k.a. The World’s Squishiest Cake) by Sarah Jampel

There were so many tubular air pockets running from the top to the bottom that I figured I was eating something made up of thousands of miniature bucatini noodles. That first flight, I bit right in, using my teeth to tear the springy, resilient thing apart. The second time, I was smarter: I pulled it into pieces with my fingers, using the vertical strands for assistance; I knew to save the custardy bottom, dense with egg flavor, for last.

But what was it? And would I be able to find it below 30,000 feet in the air? Forty years ago, I may never have found this food again. I would have had to say goodbye forever.

All hail the internet. A Google image search of “Indonesian desserts” pulled up lots of photos of the many-layered spice cake spekkoek that was developed during colonial times and the shaved ice dessert es campur—and, eventually, a sole picture of a squat mass that was yolk-yellow, deeply-striated, and glorious.

What I had eaten on those airplanes, I learned, was bika ambon, and its floor-to-ceiling air bubbles were the result of yeast, its bouncy resistance a product of tapioca flour.

It’s a north Sumatran specialty and a relative (but not a twin) of Malaysian kek sarang semut (known in English as honeycomb cake, beehive cake, and ant’s nest cake), Chinese white sugar steamed cake, and Vietnamese pandan honeycomb cake.

To make the cake at home (because surely I could not live without the flavor of egg custard in sponge form), I turned to Dr. Good Baker. All I know about Dr. Good Baker is that she (or he) had posted a “Recipe for successful Bika Ambon” on her (or his) blog, and nothing else. With a headnote this earnest, and a website devoted entirely to the recipe, I knew my cake was in good hands:

After 7 attempts at making Bika Ambon I am happy to say that I have cracked the secret of Bika Ambon recipe. I had tried many recipes on the Internet and found out that somehow they did not produce the quality of Bika Ambon that I was happy with. In fact some recipes gave disastrous results. So I was determined to create a simple recipe that is fool proof. After several experiments here it is.

And so Dr. G.B. helped me to crack the code, too. Soon, I had something in the Food52 offices that could pass for the airline’s bika ambon.

Its taste and texture, as Amanda and Merrill put it, are “as if cannelés and crumpets had a destination wedding in Asia.” It’s eggy like challah, and when you add cinnamon and vanilla to the batter, it’s as if you turned that challah into French toast, then concentrated that flavor into a soft yet elastic cake.

If you’re not sure about squishy cake, try the Chocolate Mochi Snack Cake first. But when you’re ready for something more intense, bika ambon is ready for you.

♥ 1 + Save ▴ View Full Recipe  Serves 8 to 10
  • 300 milliliters full-fat coconut milk, divided
  • 7 grams instant or active-dry yeast
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 200 grams tapioca flour
  • 200 grams sugar
  • 25 grams melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • Brûléed grapefruit and/or frozen yogurt, for serving

Recipe notes:

  • Bika ambon is most often flavored with pandan leaves. If you can find fresh pandan, use them to infuse the coconut milk.
  • I prefer the cake best when it’s entirely cool and has had a few hours to rest: The flavors get better with time and the squishiness becomes less of a burden (you don’t want to feel like you’re chewing a stress ball) and more of a boon.
  • In this recipe, the cinnamon and vanilla rise to the top to form a speckled, slightly crumbly crust. Do not be alarmed.

What the next squishy cake I should try? Tell me in the comments below!

This video shows large leptocephali that were filmed by divers at 3 locations within the Indonesian Archipelago from 2009 – 2011. These leptocephali were observed in Lembeh Strait adjacent to northeastern Sulawesi Island, at Ambon Island and at Bali, from December to April.

These leptocephali are about 300 – 400 mm long and appear to be metamorphosing larvae of some type of moray eel of the family Muraenidae. The morphological similarities between these leptocephali and ribbon eels, Rhinomuraena quaesita, suggest they may be ribbon eel larvae.

This video clip showing the four leptocephali that were filmed by various divers is associated with an unpublished manuscript…
