When I was a child, when I was in Basic School..in Indonesia named Sekolah Dasar (SD).. I’m very glad studying Ilmu Pengetahuan Sosial (IPS), especially about Geography. I’m very enjoy looking up the globe, drawing the map,coloring the island, making blue the ocean with a crayon, listening the Legend or local history from many different culture and many place in Indonesia, like Sasakala Gunung Tangkuban Parahu from West Java, story of Malin Kundang from West Sumatera, story of Candi Borobudur and Prambanan from Central Java, see the picture of their traditional clothes, weapon, traditional houses. It is wonderful enough for me that time.
After I go back home after school, at 03.00 PM or in Ashar Time (one of prayer time for Moslem) I go to the mosque for studying Al-Quran and many lesson about Islam like Fiqih, Tarikh (Islamic History), Arabic Language. But we have some extra lesson like doing sport and art. Sometime we playing soccer, making Arabic Calligraphy, making some Poetry and reading it, etc
At the mosque, there is a library. One of my favorite books at the mosque library are Encyclopedia Books, the A to Z almost all the thing in the world, with a very nice pictures, Islamic History Books especially History of our 25’s Prophet form Phrophet Adam AS to Last Prophet Muhammad SAW, the books is very interesting like a commics, colorful and complete with pictures, bring our imagination to the time when the prophet still alive.
Beside that, I remember there is one book at the library telling us all about Japan Country. The history, the language, the geography, the people, the Island, The Cities, The Food.. it is very interesting for me, the first time I know about Katagana and Hiragana, two types of Japanese Language. The first time i learn how used the chopsticks for eat, first time try to write Katagana/Hiragana word. I wondering to go there..take pictures beside the Sakura Trees with a Kimono, with a back ground of Fuji Mountain.. the highest mountain in Japan.
I think all that moment is give me some reason, some explaination about my interest, about mylife, although in my child time I was a shame one..do not telling everyone, showing the interest to many people. Maybe myself do not realized it too..don’t know surely what my interest is, the thing I loved, the wonderful thing i want to do or get..
