Tamri, Namanya

Berharap mendapatkan kesenangan seolah berpiknik, sama sekali tak terbersit dalam benakku. Kalau saja isteriku tidak merajuk untuk ikut serta dibumbui tatapan memelasnya-yang selama ini selalu sukses membuatku takluk untuk meluluskan segala keinginannya- tentunya aku tidak akan mengajak ia untuk mengambil data guna keperluan risetku. Kekhawatiranku bukan tanpa alasan, karena usia kandungan isteriku kini memasuki 5 bulan.

Seperti dugaanku, pagi itu begitu terik. Dan untuk topografi daerah kritis nan tandus rasanya tidak begitu mengherankan tidak ada satu pun pepohonan yang bisa dimanfaatkan untuk berteduh di lokasi objek risetku.

Satu hal yang membuatku tetap bersemangat: keceriaan isteriku. Tidak dihiraukannya sengatan matahari yang begitu terik. Berpayung, dan ngemil sebanyak-banyaknya bekal yang kami bawa, isteriku terlihat begitu lucu. Ia dengan mudahnya mengesampingkan kondisi yang tidak nyaman itu, seolah sedang plesir di pantai Kuta.

Namun kelegaan itu tidak berlangsung lama.Semakin siang, suhu udara semakin ttinggi, hal yang tidak teramat sulit untuk lekas menghapus keceriaan dari wajah isteriku.

Di tengah kebingunganku, seorang lelaki yang sejak tadi sepertinya memperhatikan kami dari tempatnya yang tidak jauh dari objek risetku, begitu ramah menawarkan tempat berteduh sembari mempersilahkan kami untuk istirahat di kursi malasnya yang terbuat dari bambu.

Tamri nama lelaki itu, namun ia lebih akrab disapa Ambon karena rambut kriwilnya ditambah kulitnya yang legam, fisiologi khas saudara-saudara kita dari Indonesia Timur. Di tempat itu ia tinggal di sebuah bekas box kontainer yang ia manfaatkan untuk kamar. Ia bekerja sebagai buruh angkut sekaligus penjaga gudang sebuah perusahaan pasir besi.

Sejenak mengobrol dengan mas Tamri, kesan yang muncul adalah bahwa pria ini baik hati, sopan dan ramah. Satu-satunya alasan yang membuat isteriku takut awal mulanya dengan mas Tamri karena sekujur kedua lengannya yang berhias tato.

Kami begitu akrab, kendala bahasa Mas Tamri yang terbata-bata berbahasa Indonesia, tidak menghalangi suasana cair diskusi kami. Dari diskusi pula aku mengetahui keluarga dia, impiannya sekaligus sejarahnya hingga ia terdampar di Surabaya.

Ia seorang yatim-piatu, satu-satunya saudaranya hanyalah kakaknya yang sekarang tinggal di kota Darwin- Australia. Kakaknya menikah dengan wanita setempat yang menjadikannya berganti kewarganegaraan dan akhirnya berprofesi sebagai anggota angkatan darat negeri kanguru tersebut.

Mas Tamri sudah berkali-kali ditawari untuk tinggal di Australia oleh kakaknya, namun ia dengan halus menolaknya. Hal yang membuatku terkesan, alasan penolakan itu: ia ingin berjuang hidup untuk dirinya, tanpa bergantung orang lain.

Satu lagi kekagumanku: di tengah kesibukannya menunaikan amanah kerja yang cukup berat, ia tidak lalai untuk menunaikan sholat, ia seorang muslim. Kontras sekali dengan stigma orang bertato dan buruh kasar bukan?

Ya, dan senyum manis mas Tamri membayang, ditingkah lirih tutur isteriku " banyak orang baik, Mas"

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
