Life Cycle of Sun flower

Phase 1: Seedling

As with most flowers, the first phase of the sunflower’s life cycle is as a seedling. After about 3 days after the seed is planted into soil, it germinates and the case begins to split as the roots shoot out and push down further into the soil.

Phase 2: Shoot

After roughly about a week, a shoot will sprout out of the soil, reaching slowly for the sun. Shortly after the shoot appears, the leaves will begin slowly opening; the steam and leaves will continue to grow larger and wider as time continues.

Phase 3: Bud

As the seedling continues to grow, eventually, a bud will be noticeable. The bud will begin to slowly unfold as the flower head slowly opens.

Phase 4: Bloom

Finally, as the flower head opens fully, the hypnotizing beauty of the sunflower can be appreciated at its prime.

Phase 5: Wilt

After a long season of beauty and life, the flowers petals will start to wilt. Eventually the whole flower will shrivel, where the seeds will then be released and scatter into the depths of nature.

Phase 6: Regrowth

Once the sunflower seed settles in an ideal spot, the sunflower life cycle will start all over again.

My Last Holiday

Last holiday, i went to New Zealand with my big family consist of twelve people. It was Summer, but the temperature was 5 - 24 celcius.
We flew from Jakarta to Kuala Lumpur then to Auckland. We stayed in Auckland for 2 days.  in Auckland we went to Hobbiton. it's a place where 'Lord of The Ring' and 'The Hobbit' movie were filmed. 
After 2 days, we flew to South Island. We rented three campervan. My father and my two uncle drove the campervan.  Inside the campervan we can cook, sleep, and pee. We started our roadtrip from Christchurch. We explore the South Island for ten days. It was exhausting yet beautiful experience. We stopped at every McDonald's we can find, because my mother and my two aunts were too lazy to cook a meal. The town in there was so small, it only have 24 people in it. 
We went to Milford Sound, Lake Tekapo, Lake Pukaki, Mount Cook, etc. I really want to go back there. There's no polution in the air.

My Unpleasant Experience

Hello everyone! 

In this post, i want to share one of my unpleasant experience in life. 

It was February 2014, i was just coming home from my family's trip to Europe. When suddenly i started puking and having a headache. i went straight to the Emergency Room and have a medical checkup such as MRI and lungs X-ray. 

It turns out I have meningitis disease like Olga.

I was hospitalized in Borromeus for a whole month and given a lot of drugs. at some point, i started double visioning, and having the same nightmare everynight. i couldn't think straight and always angry at the nurses and doctors.

My family prayed for me and my friends visited.
I feel so grateful to both of my parent and my brother. they stayed by my side and always pray for my health. If they hadn't been there for me, i didn't think i can go through all that.
My family really take a big part of this experience.
