Batavia, 1800 awal

Sebut saja namaku Lee, aku adalah Cina Peranakan generasi pertama yang datang di bumi Nusantara ini

Aku adalah seorang pelarian dari mainland, karena peperangan masih terjadi disana

Berkat pertemananku dengan beberapa pedagang, sampailah aku disini

So, I promised an exciting update from Emerson - my 11 year old - and today is the day.

Many of you know the back story, but in case you don’t...
Emerson likes to write letters. Lots and lots of letters. And, she likes to decorate the envelopes so people know how much time she puts in.
She decided to send a letter to Doug, our mail carrier, just to say thank you. She included a joke about elephants and mentioned her love of Taylor Swift.

Happy 1st of August!
Welsh folklore tells us to beware the cabbage during this month:
"The old people used to say that if you desired to die you should eat cabbages in August." (Folklore of Wales, 1909)
The perfect excuse not to eat your greens...
#1stofAugust #wales #folklore Image
Welsh folklore tells us that August is a great month for marriage and travel:
"August is regarded as a royal and exalted month. It is very favourable for weddings and journeys. There is an old saying in some parts of #Wales that a child born in August will 'rise in the world.'" Image
Oh, and I was born in August myself, so I'm pretty sure that I'll be "rising in the world" very soon - don't fail me now, Welsh folklore!

Espero que todos ya hayan escuchado #Folklore de @taylorswift13 porque ahí les va la explicación de por qué @VeroGarciaHu y yo pensamos que SEVEN es sobre LA PRINCESITA de Alfonso Cuarón.

ABRO HILO. ImageImage
Ahora, antes de que nos tiren de locas, esta no es la primera vez que Taylor hace una canción inspirada en una película.

DEATH BY A THOUSAND CUTS está inspirada en SOMEONE GREAT (Dir. Jennifer Kaytin Robinson). Pueden ver la película en Netflix. Image
Para aquellos conocedores, La Princesita se trata de Sara, una pequeña niña que es enviada a un internado durante la Primera Guerra Mundial. Después de sobrevivir varios golpes de realidad, Sarah sale adelante y logra reencontrarse con su padre por su amistad con BECKY. Image

This Taylor Swift album... damn. She’s amazing. Like the evolutionary Bruce Springsteen. #Folklore
And #Folklore is tremendous. I don’t know that I love every song, but it FEELS absolutely right. It is now and timeless.
“Cardigan” is the best Lana Del Rey song ever.

You tell your girlfriends everything about your relationship. But you know what they say? Love them all but trust none!

No matter how close you are to a woman, it’s a bad idea to share all the details of your relationship with your man.
CC: @KufreCarter
Telling them about your man’s footlong 4-5, or how he takes his time during foreplay is a bad idea. “Oooh girl, he is so good you won’t believe it. He makes me want to jump off the roof,” you hear some women tell their friends.

“He takes time in bed and he is loaded, girl.
“I've never had such a lover.” Guess what? She'll want to have a taste of the pleasures you
experience from your man. Every woman wishes for a man who takes his time between the sheets.

No woman wants a one-minute man who will rush, come quickly and leave her high and dry.

Les voy a abrir un hilo acerca del nuevo álbum de Taylor Swift, #folklore:
Al contrario de su anterior álbum, Lover, que estuvo lleno de “Easter Eggs”, o acertijos previos a su lanzamiento, folklore vino como una sorpresa para los fans por su anuncio sin precedentes, junto al video clip del sencillo “cardigan”
Taylor lo ha caracterizado:
“Como un álbum de fotos lleno de imágenes y por detrás, sus historias”.

I regret to inform you that it is a good morning only to Taylor Alison Swift, who i'm pretty sure delivered the vaccine to the people #Folklore
We were all like man can we please have a summer smash, and Taylor really was the one to say listen, no, these are difficult days, and here is some grown shit.
I didn't have it in myself to go with grace

Happy Friday!
Welsh folklore tells us that today is a day for magic:
"Friday was a 'witch day' and generally unlucky. If you talk about witches on a Friday, they will brew mischief for you. A wet Friday, a wet Sunday; a fair Friday, a fair Sunday."
#folklore #wales #fridayfeeling
Best. Witch. GIF. Ever. #Folklore
My old #folklore tweets seem to be having a new lease of life this morning. It's almost as if a popular recording artist has named their album after these curious old customs, and people are now discovering them for the first time. Strange.

Just finished listening to the album.
⭐ 9/10

#Folklore by Taylor Swift's is everything I've ever wanted from her, I'll be here listening on repeat and crying in the corner for the rest of time

She literally made me dwindle with her through the peaceful and calm production ImageImage
... adorned with beautiful lyrics.

This album is her most mature and vulnerable. Every songs, every lyrics are intensely beautiful and every word is perfectly chosen

The #Folklore album is just perfect no flaws 10/10. It transcends you an unique way. I am immensely proud of her
.@taylorswift13 explores and creates like no other artist.

All the lyrics from #Folklore are by far her most complex and her best, "August" lyrics and rhythm are another level. I'm just in love with it

Fav. tracks
— august
— invisible strings
— betty
— exile
— my tears ricochet

I’ve arrived in Finea just now. It’s east of Granard and the place where Fergus turned the army southwards. This aroused suspicions - was he leading the army astray - into an ambush perhaps. “Hang on” thought Meave “where is the Ulster army””Fergus come here” she said #CattleRaid
I passed a few interesting roadside memorials. Here’s one about an ambush near Ballinalee near Granard #CattleRaid
And another memorial here in the lovely village of Finea, to Myles “the Slasher” O’Reilly, a hero of the Irish Confederate War 1641 - 50. #CattleRaid

Been down the rabbit-hole of #Croatian #folklore - here's a #thread of what I found:


This one is especially close as its my family island.
'From #Folklore to Fiction: Early Literary Manifestations of the #Vampire Motif'

Fun fact: the term 'vampyr' first appeared in an 11th century Slavic manuscript vilifying #Bogomils, a #Gnostic dualist heresy that was endemic to the #Balkans
'#Witches' Zoopsychonavigations and the Astral Broom in the Worlds of #Croatian Legends as (Possible) Aspects of #Shamanistic Techniques of Ecstasy (and Trance)'…

Cruel Summer vem pra explicar o começo de alwynswift, como a Taylor estava emocionalmente envolvida com ele mesmo durante o tempo dela com o Tom.

sim amigos, cruel summer é uma música alwynswift e não hiddleswift
"Killing me slow, out the window
I'm always waiting for you to be waiting below"

ela esperava pelo Joe, não pelo Tom, e isso matava ela, ela não gostava do que fazia com o Tom e do que sentia pelo Alwyn
"We say that we'll just screw it up in these trying times
We're not trying (oh yeah, you're right, I want it)"

como vou mostrar, a Taylor não acha que errou com o Joe e que isso foi a única coisa que ela fez certo. Ela estava com o Tom, "tentando" estar realmente ali com ele +

A man suffering from Diarrhea in a town asked to be taken quickly to the local herbalist for cure.

When his entourage arrived with him seeking for the herbalist, they got this shocking news:
“Sorry o herbalist has been in the bush for three days battling Diarrhea.”

I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.

A thread on doing the #PhD you love regardless of what’s “trendy” or “canonical”. #phdchat
Mine was on J.R.R. #Tolkien, nearly 15 years ago. I had an amazing supervisor who was nearly taught philology by #Tolkien at Oxford (he missed him by a year!) My thesis became this book:
What got me thinking about this was this blog post by friend and #Tolkien scholar John D. Rateliff, best known from the 2-volume History of the Hobbit (an edition of all Hobbit manuscripts with notes):…
As you will see, back in the 1980s John was not allowed to do his #PhD on the emergence of fantasy as a literary genre (which would have focused on #Tolkien’s key role). The reason he was given was that it would be:
