Just a brief post.

I’ve just emailed this announcement to some mailing lists and friends:

It’s been a while; almost three months from the first launch of Eyesia (http://www.eyesia.co.cc/), a website/online magazine of Indonesian students in Australia. And after such a long waiting, a “tough break”, we are now glad to share this news: the second edition of Eyesia is finally available for viewing!
The articles are not as many as the 1st one in quantity, but some sections might be worth checking out. Some of them are: a note of Mt Buller trip (Travel), a soccer-playing robot team and the Indonesian guy member (Hobby) – plus a glimpse of one the games (Video), book reviews and some songs (Simply Words), a couple of short and not-so-short news (Newswire), as well as ‘conversation’ about public transportation (Focus), and of course new photo gallery and recipe.
Please, have a look. And we’d appreciate any comments. Thanks and enjoy.

While this is the Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) version:

Sudah cukup lama sejak edisi perdana diluncurkan, dan memang cukup memakan waktu dan menguras tenaga [part-time] kami dalam menindaklanjutinya. Tapi akhirnya.. Eyesia edisi-2 sudah bisa dinikmati online.
Tidak sebanyak yang pertama artikel-artikelnya, namun barangkali masih lumayan menarik untuk ditengok. Kali ini, kita antara lain punya sebuah jurnal trip ke Mt Buller (Travel), artikel kecil tentang tim sepakbola robot dan salah satu membernya (Hobby) – berikut cuplikan pertandingan (Video), ada beberapa review buku & lirik lagu (Simply Words), serta sejumlah berita/feature singkat (Newswire). Plus, tentu masih ada bahasan utama, yaitu tentang public transport (Focus), dan galeri foto baru serta resep.
Silakan bagi yang brminat, singgahlah sejenak. Silakan beri komentar juga. Terima kasih.

Can’t say more. Just figure it out yourselves guys. 😉
