My job this time is to supervise and conduct observations of sediment layers containing oil on drilling rig in the coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Drilling oil wells is an important thing for the company I work for, because drilling is to know the content of the oil in the reservoir section the other side. Even platform to suck oil out to surface have been installed and are being prepared.
This time, Management asked me to take a picture of this platform, which is attached with drilling rig where I am working on. This drilling rig, this time in charge of drilling multiple horizontal wellbore. When I met the head of the company’s drilling supervisor, he asked me if I bring my digital camera, I said: “Sorry, if I do not bring it this time.”
Finally, after worked on drilling preparation one of oil well, then Drilling Supervisor allowed me to use the Nikon Coolpix S3600 compact camera and booked me to one crew boat to take some pictures around the drilling rig. I told Captain Ship to maneuver to west side of the drilling rig, so the shots are not “against” sun. For me, some of the shots was not disappointing and quite well.
After take editing some shots in the Macbook Air and get these done, then emailed them to management officer. That’s a bit of my experience working other than as a geologist in the oil drilling rig, as well as amateur photographers.
Enjoy the pictures,

After over a year of waiting, Finally I and family moved to our new house, “Omah Aring”, which means the sides sloping roofed houses. This house consists of two parts: the main house and “joglo” house. The main house idea came from my wife – Ambarwati, located at the back, which is nuanced semi-minimalist for living family. While the front house is Joglo; does not require a design plan, just follow the design of the old Javanese buildings. I ordered this Joglo house from someone in Wonosari city, Yogyakarta. Its formed of teak wood “Joglo” house pillars; This “joglo” house, I use for the living room, a place of worship, reading room and lounge, and can be used as a gathering place in an event or party.

The term “Omah Aring” comes from Yuda de’angelo, is an architect who designed this house. Construction of this house longer than I expected; because a lot of details that need to be repaired and making up of joglo been very slow. Initially, beginning in 2014, our family is planned to move, but the main house is not well prepared to live; because there are some parts that must be repaired. Finally, on July 20, 2014, 10 days before Eid, we moved into our new house – “Omah Aring”… Horay…!

This house, I dedicated to my beloved wife – Ambar. I am glad that she is happy after my family moved, although joglo house not ready when we move. The second floor of the main house is ready for living. Currently, the ground floor is still in the stage of final finishing, such painting “melamine” wood frame, doors and windows; while installments and complements the interior furniture.

Its still a lot things to do for final settlement, but at least my family happy for our own home sweet home and gathered with family – Ambar, Ajeng and Dimas – this is the most beautiful time for my family.
Greetings from Omah Aring,
The photo above was snapped by my colleague – Toni Juritno; using iPhone4 mobile phone, when we worked together at the drilling rig West Prospero, off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
Mid-2014, I had to take chance of job opportunities in Malaysia. One of the leading European oil companies, implementing programs in the field of oil drilling east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. This plan would explore drilling time approximately 16 wells in the program one more year, so I should be ready to undergo the task as a Wellsite Geologist at drilling rig.
Starting with the first exploration well and success, with penetrating some rock formations, including the reservoir layer, taking rock core samples , perform a series of the electric logging (wireline logging).
Schedule this time, I worked for three weeks. Starting from the top and the drilling of hydrocarbon reservoirs. Luckily, I was able to go home before the day of Eid. Fasting in this year of Ramadan at the drilling rig, feels normal; because I was accompanied by my senior colleague, Toni Juritno.
Some of the photos in this page are my shots. Taken from the drilling rig. The digital camera is belong to company, Nikon Coolpix S3600. This pocket camera produces good pictures; of course they are need to process by Adobe Photoshop.

Malaysia offshore, July 2014
Toni – my colleague and I had visited to Malaysia last week. This visit is to attend HSE & Leadership workshop held at Awana Hotel, Kijal, which is located in Coastal East Malaysia. The trip from Jogja was long and tiring, because we had to transit twice in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur, basically leaving early and coming night.
Two day workshop been little boring for us then the first day of the workshop, we walked down the beach at the back of the hotel. I took time to take a few snap photos at the beach, coincidentally the day started overcast and on the east side, a rainbow appeared – of course it surprised me, how do I shot rainbow? when only last week I read an article about how to shot rainbow.
Fortunately, the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens I’ve attached a CPL filter (Circular Polarizer), before I try to adjust this filter up to a maximum order of the rainbow colors look better, it is clear the difference if we shoot without a polarizer filter.
The sun had started leaning to the west, when I and Toni had to go back to hotel for dinner with other staff workshop participants, through the golf course, I took a few shots.
Starting the journey from Kuala Lumpur to Malaysia’s east coast, I had been record the coordinates and tracking with my Garmin GPS and I try to look at the above map tracks the journey, You may see the journey link below:

I have never used the GPS device (Global Positioning System), although I’ve wanted to have since two years ago. I have just bought a few days ago in the geological equipment store in Jl. Kaliurang KM 8.5, Yogyakarta, its tokogeologist.com. This stores provide geological field equipments from teodolite, Geology compass, geological hammer, field geology loupe and other equipment. Of course I like to see all of these equipments. This shopping place informed by my daughter who still is studying in the Faculty of Geology, one of the University in Yogyakarta.

The reason I want to have GPS is because my daughter needed for Field Geology work at Karangsambung which will be in the end of this year, also in photography I am often hunting to remote areas outside the city; so I think the tool is much useful for us. The one I have chosen is Garmin GPSmap 62s, because the type of GPS is simple and is more than enough for my purposes. After opening a new box of this tool, I read the manual first, then open the menu and interface of this tool; fairly easy and you may need to search on the internet term GPS, peace of cake…!
One thing, this GPS can be connected to a computer by USB cable. Software built-in from the Garmin GPS is Basecamp, Mapinstall and Map Manager; all this software can be downloaded for free via the Internet, they are:
Actually, the internal memory is mounted soft copy of the software, user guide and baseman; so that its owner can directly and easy to use. After quite familiar and learn some of the GPS awhile then I tried to use and utilize this tool and made route plan on a computer using Basecamp for Mac, then transfer it to the GPS device. Next morning, execute it and automatically Garmin GPS will give a warning sound of “beep” and show where we are going each time we encounter an intersection or waypoint that we have created in the route plan. I will not go to far how to use the GPS, but I am more interested in sharing the benefits of this tool are given.
Other features are digital compass display, log tracking, micro SD memory card slot, 1.6 GB of internal memory. The LCD and the body looks tough and strong with simple menu interface. Use AA size battery power source so it is easy to get it.
Try GPS for travel to the Sermo Reservoir, through Wates city, continued to the north, into the Kulonprogo hills, until reaching the Tosari village, Samigaluh, and heading eastwards back home through Nanggula and Godean. This route can be seen at this link:
Some photo shots had been made in Sermo reservoir and couple in small river in Kulonprogo.

Now, I have been searching of coordinate of some photography place around Yogyakarta, how to geotagging. The most important, most likely you won’t be lost…!
