Feel free to just say hi or nice to meet you orย  even your blog sucks ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have closed the 1st and 2nd message board because they have had 87 & 88 comments….I don’t want to make people stroll too long to leave a message, that’s why I always close my message board at 80something.I will also close this one once it reaches 88 comments.

I never deleted the old messages ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Novia? Or are you more comfortable with Novroz? ๐Ÿ™‚
    Anyway, I thought of revising my first entry of the story of how I met Laruku. And I thought of sharing it to you and hope it interests you. ๐Ÿ˜€ Here is it: http://randomvenus.wordpress.com/2012/03/26/bonjour-l-arc-en-ciel-a-newbie-fan-blog/

      Hi Melati,
      Twitter sy sbnrnya ada di samping kanan blog ini ๐Ÿ˜‰ @novroz , maaf sy sdang tdk bs sms.

      Tentang buku paper door ya? jujur saya mgkn ga bs bnyk membantu krn buku itu tdk begitu berkesan buat saya. Untuk kumpulan short stories, the square persimmon jauh lbh berkesan.

            Kalo sesama WP sih ga masalah…jarang juga yang curi2…yang sering nyuri itu yang bloghostnya blogspot ๐Ÿ˜ฆ jadi trik itu ga gitu berguna.

            Hehehe terlalu sederhana buat saya ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Hahaha….ga masalah kok ๐Ÿ™‚

          • nadhilaaz
            October 21, 2012

            ohya? kalo yang pake blogspot pake trik itupun ga kedetect ya? ga tau abis ga pengalaman dengan blogspot dan ga pernah merhatiin ada yg kopas post sy apa ga sih…*maklum postingan isinya curhat semua :p

          • Novroz
            October 21, 2012

            Saya selalu tau karena para peng-copas blogspot itu bener2 kopi-paste semua, jadi ngelink back dan ada yang ngeklik link itu, jadi ada reportnya di stat

          • nadhilaaz
            October 21, 2012

            intinya mesti rajin2 ngecek stats aja ya..hahaha yah at least itu berarti postingan dikau bagus2 miss.. ujung2nya nambah traffic ke blog dikau juga haha

          • Novroz
            October 21, 2012

            lebih baik ga nambah traffic sih kalo saya…ga guna juga banyak traffic, komen lebih berkesan buat sy.

            Sehari dah ada traffic 500 lebih tapi komen ga sebanyak itu…yah berasa biasa aja liat data 500 an itu.

          • nadhilaaz
            October 21, 2012

            iya sih sama.. kadang pas traffic lagi banyak2nya pun ga ada satupun yang komen.. T^T
            yah tapi buat saya sih bagus juga sih kalo trafficnya rame, banyak yang liat walopun ga komen, semoga aja ada yg bermanfaat buat mereka hahaha

    Hi Novia — is that what I should call you? ๐Ÿ™‚ I just wanted to say thanks for your comment, on my blog, about my dad’s review of the book on gender issues and Islam. I left this comment in reply:

    Thank you for commenting, and sharing your thoughts from the perspective of your faith. I do not know much about Islam, but I have read this — that Mohammed and the Qur’an have conveyed a message that women should be respected and honored. It’s unfortunate that there are some members of all religions who don’t read or misinterpret their scriptures. ๐Ÿ™‚

    By the way, I have been visiting your blog for months now, and I finally got around to clicking the “About Me” page. I enjoyed seeing photos of you and your turtles. You are beautiful. It’s always nice to get to know fellow bloggers a bit better. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I really like that post and have left another comment, I hope I didn’t overdo it (my second comment)

      Thank you for the compliment ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s always nice tn get to know a fellow blogger more. I always have that experience over months of reading same blogs and really enjoy the process.

      Kulit termpurung biasanya ga akan kering kalau dia tinggal di air yang dalam karena dia bisa berenang bebas yang otomatis membasahin cangkangnya

    Hiya! You know, since you blogged about the film 127 Hours, I actually found a copy of the book at a local car boot sale, and then the dvd for very little money at a supermarket!

      Thank you Christel ๐Ÿ™‚

      Unfortunately I can’t help you as I don’t read much short story and not really into Indonesian literature even though I am an Indonesian. It’s because I like book with a lot of imagination in it.

    dear novia, ak mau tanya ttg kura2ku nih. aku punya kura ambon, namanya berry, nah si berry ini kalo tidur kan di atas tumpukan handuk kecil, kayak tempat tidur kroten gitu. kmrn kan baru beli pelomedusa namanya kiwi. trus aku bingung ini kiwi kalo tidur gimana ya ? apa boleh tidur di atas handuk kyk si berry ? apa nggak dehidrasi ? fyi, berry & kiwi mulai tidur itu dari jam 9 malem sampe jam 5 pagi. makasih ๐Ÿ™‚

      pelomedusa? sya baru denger jenis itu. Kalo dia kura2 air tawar harusnya bisa

      • nita
        April 13, 2015

        pelomedusa itu tipe yg sideneck gitu, jadi ga isa masukin kepalae. cm isa nekuk ke samping. ini kenapa ya si kiwi kok banyak merah2 kayak alga ? padahal aku brrsihin tiap hari, tp tetep ga isa ilang. oh iya, alganya tumbuh di bagian dagingnya, bukan di tempurungnya. gimana cara ngatasin alga di badannya ? makasih…

        • Novroz
          April 13, 2015

          Oh…kayak Papoe ya.

          Alga di badan. Saya kurang tau juga tapi sebaiknya sering2 dijemur aja. Ada alga berarti sia selalu di air

  33. nita
    May 27, 2015

    iya, mirip papoe tp besar… ๐Ÿ˜€ alga d badannya jg dah ilang, sejak kalo tidur aku taruh darat…

    oh iya, aku baru aja nemu pipi putih, di deket rumahku kan masih ada rawa2 gitu, keadaannya mengenaskan, tempurungny luka2 kyk bekas gigitan binatang gitu, trus tempurung yg deket ekor ilang… dia ga mau makan sayur ato pelet, gmn ya biar mau makan sayur ato pelet gitu ? aku kasih udang jg dia ga mau… apa mesti dipuasain dulu ? berapa lama ? makasih…

    • Novroz
      May 30, 2015

      Mungkin dia masih stress karena luka2nya atau karena tiba2 aja dari liar jadi peliharaan. Yang penting cobain segala jenis makanan sampai dia mau makan

    Hi, Novroz.
    Aku habis baca-baca tulisan kamu mainly tentang kura. Aku newbie baru 1minggu beli 2 RES. Greenie dan Blue Dragon. Aku lihat dari cara menulismu kamu humble, caring, dan informed. Aku jadi interested doing chat if it’s okay, just in case aku butuh emergency. Kalau boleh aku bisa minta kontak kamu untuk whatsapp atau line it’s both okay. I promise i try not to disturb or annoy you.
    Kirim email ya. Noah.odin@gmail.com. really appreciate it.
