Warna Kuning Hamparan Sawah Habis Panen Di Tuatuka Oesao NTT (Yellow Color Over Rice Paddock After Harvest In Tuatuka Oesao NTT )


Desa Tuatuka terletak di Oesao kurang lebih 30 menit dari Kota Kupang. Oesao terkenal sebagai daerah persawahan dan perkebunan di Pulau Timor yang mendapat julukan Pulau Karang. Oleh sebab itu banyak dijumpai hamparan sawah dan ladang jagung atau sayur mayur. Ditempat ini juga dapat ditemui tambak ikan air tawar tepatnya didesa Nuekele dan dijadikan tempat wisata pada saat weekend oleh masyarakat kota Kupang.

Tuatuka Village in Oesao about 30 minutes from Kupang City. Oesao is well-known as a rice field and plantation area on the island of Timor which nicknamed the Coral Island. Therefore, there are many paddy fields and corn or vegetable fields. In this place  also  found freshwater fish ponds precisely at Nuekele village and used as a tourist spot during  weekend by  people of Kupang city.

Jalan sudah semakin baik dan bulan Juni ini pada saat kami berkunjung tampak hamparan sawah telah berubah warna. Tampak hamparan berwarna kuning dan tampaknya tanaman padi di desa Tuatuka ini baru habis dipanen.

The road is getting better and this June when I was traveling observed the changed color of expanse rice fields. A yellow wide area and  rice plant in  Tuatuka village has just harvested.

Di NTT ada sejumlah wilayah sebagai sentra produksi padi. Sentra itulah yang akan memenuhi kebutuhan pangan masyarakat di NTT, sehingga terus didorong dan difailitasi oleh banyak pihak untuk pemenuhan target tersebut.

In NTT there are several areas as rice production centers. These center then will meet the food needs of the people in NTT, so it continues  encouraged and facilitated by many parties to fulfill the target.

Dan yang unik adalah gerombolan burung bangau yang memenuhi salah satu hamparan tanah yang habis dipanen. Semoga burung-burung ini tidak ikut ditembak atau dipanen. Burung-burung bangau ini juga ikut menangkap kodok atau belalang dan mungkin kami diberikan kesempatan melihatnya. Sungguh indah bukan?

And the unique thing we met was the horde of cranes in one plot of the harvested expanses land. May these birds not be shot or harvested too. The cranes were also picking up frogs or grasshoppers and maybe we were given chance to see them. It’s beautiful isn’t it?
