Indonesian tales - Obedient Cat

An Obedient Cat [EF#16]


Talking about Indonesian traditional tales is very interesting. There are lots of urban legends, fable, folklore, folktales, myths, and any other contemporary stories which had so many noble values. When I was a child, I was always interested in those stories. My father frequently used to tell me about some classic fables, such as a story of clever mouse deer, the legend of golden snail, or a story of turtle race. Besides, there were famous children magazines at that time whose contained various contemporary tales. You must be heard about Bobo and Mentari Putra Harapan, right? They were pioneer for high-quality kids’ contents and stories.

tic tac toe board game

Behavioral Study of Board Games [EF#15]


The very first basic rule defined on the board games is about the gameplay. Board games can only be played by using a turn-based rule. That means, there is always a time when a player run his/her step before or after the opponent’s or his own step on a single player type board games. Unlike the traditional field games (gobak sodor, benteng-bentengan, sepak tekong, petak umpet, boy-boyan, etc) which is run by parallel processes at the same time, board games run with the serial processes. The current step will become a previous step to the next step. And the next step will eventually become a previous step to the next upper-level step, and so on, until the game reaches its end. In other words, game over.

10 Iklan TV dengan Jingle Paling Populer


Keuntungan mengiklan di TV adalah kreatifitas penyampaian yang tidak terbatas. Ada yang dikemas dalam bentuk animasi 2D/3D, ada yang berupa testimoni (masih ingat iklan detergen dan sabun pelembab yang menampilkan testimoni ibu-ibu dan mbak-mbak seperti sedang diinterview? Swing… swing… swing), ada yang sangat simpel tapi diulang-ulang sampai 3x (good… good… good), ada juga yang menampilkan jingle keren pembawa identitas si produk. Menurut saya, yang paling bagus adalah yang terakhir. Karena sepertinya niat betul mengemasnya. Apalagi iklan-iklan jaman dulu yang sepertinya lebih kental dalam mengangkat tema ke-Indonesia-an. Kebudayaan, kekayaan alam, keramahan orang-orangnya, dan kehebatan-kehebatan lain yang dimiliki oleh negeri ini. Berikut adalah 10 iklan TV dengan jingle paling populer, versi saya:

Sketching My Favorite Manga Character – Conan Edogawa [EF#14]


But, a challenge is a challenge. :D I chose another favorite character of my own. You can guess it from the title don’t you. Yes, he is Conan Edogawa (kid version) or Shinichi Kudo (adult version). He is the main character of Meitantei Conan / Detective Conan anime series and manga. The story has been plotted for the first syndicate case called Black Organization that has been started to reveal by a young genius detective, Shinichi Kudo. Unfortunately, he has been caught in action during an investigation. Then they force him to ingest an experimental poison called APTX 4869 in order to kill him without leaving evidence. But, a rare occurrence of the side effect has been released. Instead of dying, he has had transformed into a child because of that poison. Ah… I am sure you already familiar with the rest of the story. What I want to share in this post is just about how a (fake) fanart like me doing a participation to enliven the atmosphere. Yes, drawing, sketching, and its kind. Not quite important tasks though.

tips belajar berenang mudah

Tips Belajar Berenang Mudah


Berenang merupakan aktivitas yang sebenarnya penting-penting-ga-penting. Sisi pentingnya adalah sebagai upaya menjaga diri dari situasi darurat yang tidak kita duga sebelumnya dan kebetulan melibatkan air dalam volume yang buanyak. Misalnya, bencana banjir bandang, kapal karam, atau hanya masalah sepele seperti tercebur ke dalam kolam pancingan yang dalamnya 2 meter. Kalau hanya kecebur di got itu bukan darurat, itu hanya salah lewat. Kalau kehujanan di tengah taman sendirian sambil membawa bunga itu juga bukan darurat, tapi hatinya sedang tersayat. o_O Sisi ga pentingnya, yaa kejadian seperti itu memang jarang terjadi, khususnya bagi kita-kita yang hidup di daerah perkotaan yang setiap hari ngantor di gedung-gedung mewah dengan kebutuhan transportasi darat yang sudah cukup terpenuhi. Bisa berenang atau tidak ya ga ngaruh. Tapi kan lebih banyak pentingnya. Salah satunya adalah alasan kesehatan. Kan kalau ga sehat kita jadi ga bisa bekerja. Ga bisa berkarya lah. Merasa tak berguna lah. Stres sendiri lah. Waspadalah waspadalah.

Bad Bad Bad Badminton [EF#13]


It seems the challenges are more challenging from weeks to weeks. And I have always being late to post the challenge from time to time. :D I think my last EF post is more suitable for this week’s topic, Sports. But, in the matter of admin’s dignity, I have to pick another sports genre to answer the challenge. The first thing I have in mind was walking (alone), “mlaku pelan-pelan“. But it was just the way too general I think. So, I need another option. Hmm… doing horse riding looked awesome. But I never did it for even once. Doing some extreme sports like bungee jumping seemed interesting. But I did not have time to do those crazy things. The point is I have had thousand reasons for excuses like this. :twisted:

Ada-ada saja ulah programmer Google. Hari ini, tanggal 1 April ketika membuka browser dan menyematkan URL Google Map di teks perambanan, kita akan langsung diperlihatkan sebuah kotak menu di kiri bawah di sebelah kotak menu Google Earth yang sebelumnya memang tidak biasanya ada. Dan setelah saya klik, eh ternyata memang bener, ada surprise dari Google. Tiba-tiba layar Google Map saya berubah menjadi tampilan berformat piksel 8 bit seperti tampilan game konsol tahun 90-an dengan game andalannya, PacMan.

My Bio-Cycle Story [EF#12]


According to the title, I guess you have already know that I will write about bicycle as one of my favorite daily vehicles. I am also quite sure that you have already familiar with the tagline “bike to work”. Yes, bicycle is the most long-lasting personal transportation mode we’ve known since long ago. There are so many reasons why the bicycle is not obsolete by the age. Sometimes, we need something fast enough but environmentally safe. Sometimes, we need simple things to do like biking. Or, sometimes, we need to take care our health and endurance. Or maybe the silly reason, we just do not have enough money to buy a motorcycle. Whatever it is, I believe there must be a long story behind it. Story which has passed through generations. Not much changes, but it may remind us why do we have so complex problems while we can make it simple, as simple as pedaling a pair of wheels.

Mulai dari yang masih duduk di bangku sekolah sadar hingga lulusan S3 yakin 97% banyak yang mafhum soal selfie. Mulai dari pengamen jalnaan hingga pejabat negara selevel presiden pun pernah melakukan aktivtias selfie. Bahkan tidak jarang yang masih bayi dan batita pun “dipaksa membiasakan” diri untuk ber-selfie ria oleh orangtuanya.

Saya Sedih [#2]


Apakah benar semua krisis yang kita alami bersumber pada soal ekonomi? Apakah benar semua masalah yang kita hadapai berasal dari korupsi? Apakah benar semua polemik yang kita musuhi berakar dari politisasi? Atau jangan-jangan semuanya merujuk pada mentalitas kita sendiri, kebodohan kita sendiri, karena semakin menjauh dari nilai-nilai ketuhanan dan religi. Di situ kadang saya merasa sedih.

Indonesian cuisine is very diverse. There may be thousands of its type which has been spread out across the country since a long time ago. If I may say, the total number is countless. I am not sure how many ingredients and seasonings that are involved to create its fabulous flavor. The taste itself are also immeasurable, derived from Sabang to Merauke. From each tribe to the farraginous philosophies. Hereditary, from one recipe to another until it reaches our current generation. From one story to another until it reaches your heart. #eh

Profesi dan Pekerjaan

Profesi dan Pekerjaan


Sayangnya, di negara ini profesi yang hanya mencakup satu bidang saja relatif kurang dihargai. Contohnya di bidang IT, sepertinya semua orang menginginkan tenaga ahli yang benar-benar superman. Bisa ini bisa itu bisa segalanya. Dari sisi dunia bisnis pun sama, ujung-ujungnya PALUGADA (apa yang elu mau gue ada). Entah apakah karena kebanyakan orang menginginkan efisiensi biaya development, atau memang karena margin yang diharapkan sangat tinggi sehingga menekan biaya yang paling mudah untuk ditekan. Jadi jangan heran kalau sekarang di sini masih ada anggapan bahwa kualitas suatu produk IT itu nomor dua, yang penting jadi dulu. Ah, tapi semoga saya saja yang kurang update tentang ini. :D

Sometimes, we were assigned together so I can keep in touch with you anytime.

Sometimes, we were both holding each other just like any other happy couples.

But sometimes, I felt empty when you were close to someone else.

One thing that I still believe, we are still connected to the same rope.

My favorite spot at my grandma’s house when I was a child. I grew up here until I moved to Surabaya, the biggest city in the same province. It has so many memories here and the fireplace has never changed at all. When we operate this type of fireplace, the smell of bitter usually sticks to the clothes and it will be difficult to remove it. My mom sometimes yelled at me because I often played with the firewood. But, kid will always be a kid, I always enjoyed playing with that kind of stuff.

Tapi percaya atau tidak, dulu saya sempat berkeinginan menjadi ahli botani yang cukup punya andil dalam memajukan pertanian dan produksi pangan negara ini. Tapi entah mengapa hasrat itu seolah hilang dengan sendirinya karena ternyata saya mengejar cinta #eh cita yang berbeda. Dan dari yang semula mau ke Bogor, langsung berbelok ke Bandung. Ya, pikir saya waktu itu Bandung masih acceptable lah, masih sepi, dingin, suejuk, dan masih sempat mengalami berangkat kuliah dengan jalan kaki sambil bercengkerama menembus kabut di setiap paginya. Kalau sekarang, ya begitulah.

Analogi Sambal Terasi

Analogi Sambal Terasi


Ga… begini lho, kemarin itu pas diskusi, ada satu bahasan yang menurut saya pas, yaitu tentang analogi sambal terasi. Untuk membuat sistem sebesar ini tidak akan mungkin kita bergerak sendiri-sendiri. Di sisi cabe-cabean percabean, harus ada petani yang mulai mengurusi produksi penanaman cabe. Dalam proses penanamannya juga perlu pupuk dari produsen pupuk agar tanaman cabe bagus produksinya. Di pabrik pupuk sendiri ada beberapa pihak yang terlibat. Di sisi lain, harus ada nelayan yang mengambil udangnya dari dasar laut, atau yang membudidayakannya di tambak-tambak. Harus ada juga orang-orang yang menyalurkannya ke pabrik-pabrik pengolahan hingga jadi terasi. Di pabrik juga perlu ratusan hingga ribuan orang yang bekerja memfermentasikan udang dan bahan-bahan lainnya sehingga menjadi terasi. Di sisi lain masih ada bawang. Hampir sama seperti cabe, perlu petani, produsen pupuk, distributor hasilnya ke pasar-pasar. Sisi yang lain? Masih banyak, sebut saja minyak goreng, jeruk nipis, kecap jika diperlukan, ulekan dan cobeknya, dan sebagainya dan sebagainya. Jika dirunut, untuk menghasilkan secobek sambal terasi yang uenak saja diperlukan banyak sekali pihak yang terlibat. Apalagi membangun sebuah smart city

Testimoni Palsu

Testimoni Palsu


Penyampaian nilai suatu produk atau value proposition appraisal, khususnya yang menyangkut kepuasan pengguna akan manfaat dari produk tersebut biasa disebut testimoni. Karena sudah menyangkut kepuasan, maka sudah sewajarnya kalau si pengguna merasakannya terlebih dahulu baru berkilah. Tapi dengan semakin brutalnya persaingan bisnis, sepertinya proses normatif tersebut seakan cukup halal untuk boleh dilewati. Ya, kalau memang produknya sendiri sudah umum, seperti layanan booking hotel online, e-commerce, forum, mungkin masih OK. Setidaknya kalau belum pernah menjadi pengguna, cukup dengan melihat berbagai review yang ada sudah cukup. Tapi kalau sudah menyangkut produk yang harus dicoba dulu sebanyak N kali, rasanya kok ya kurang afdhol.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Symmetry


Recently, I learnt about 360 digital panoramic photography styles. The concept itself is just quite unnatural. Combining a series of sequential photograph into one image which cover all of a 360 degrees viewpoint. For your information, a full spherical format of 360 panoramic photography has three (3) types of projection. Equirectangular, little planet, and cubic. It depends on what kind of usages that we want. If we are going to create a 360 world simulation, then equirectangular or cubic would fit the most. But, if we aim for just an artistic single photograph, little planet is the best I think. By some luck, I realized that the little planet projection have a similar characteristic, its symmetrical aspects. It sounds interesting.

ALTERnativE GOd-given [EF#6]


From all those services, there is one thing that became my attention. This item is very unique. Almost every day, there’s always someone who needs my help to cast it loose. They used to call it as metal gloves. What kind of freak who put this weird stuff into innocent people’s hands. I really do not believe it.

Liburan ke Surabaya

Liburan Hemat ke Surabaya [Tips]


Memang agak aneh rasanya, saya ini orang Surabaya asli, tapi kok malah membahas liburan hemat ke kota kelahiran saya sendiri. Ya jelas saja hemat, lha wong setiap kali ke Surabaya itu pasti judulnya pulang kampung, bukan liburan dalam artian berlibur terus pulang. Tidur ya pastinya nginep di kamar rumah sendiri. Makanan ya pasti makan masakan Ibuk tercinta. Biaya transportasi? Nah, ini mungkin yang bisa saya kasih sedikit bocoran. Walaupun belum tentu yang paling murah ya bos. Anda jangan asal menuduh saya tahu segala hal soal harga. Keterlaluan. :D

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: Tangled Wires


Today, Jakarta and surrounding areas were hit by floods. A total of 428 electrical substations has been turned off to keep the situation saved. I hope there will be no dangerous occurrences caused by the floods. By the way, I have found some oddities on an electrical substation several years ago. It is located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I wonder how the technician can handle all of the cables if there is a problem in there.

Jejak Digital


Bagaimana nasib data kita yang sudah terlanjur tersebar ke dunia maya? Kalau dipikir-pikir, sekalinya kita terkoneksi ke internet dan mengunggah sesuatu, itu artinya dalam waktu sekian detik, data yang kita unggah akan menyebar ke seluruh dunia. Karena data digital itu seperti halnya kunci rumah, bisa diduplikat dengan mudahnya, kapan saja, prosesnya bisa sangat cepat, sama persis lagi. Duplikasinya juga bisa sangat banyak. Jangankan satu dua tiga empat lima kopian, sebanyak 200 lembar bolak-balik saja tidak masalah.

Connect the Dots

Connecting the Dots [EF#5]


From my point of view, we ourselves can not predict our own future. Not even one second ahead. So then, it is kind of useless when we try to look forward about our dots. It is not possible. We may put some plans on the table. We may create some priority list. It is OK, it shall seem like that. But the main important thing is we need to do the best of anything we can do. Because we never know what the best scenario that suits us better. That is truly the art.

Basa-Basi Budaya Ketimuran


Ketika bertamu ke rumah orang, biasanya kita langsung disapa dengan, “silakan, anggap saja rumah sendiri”. Maksudnya adalah kita sebagai tamu tidak perlu bersikap malu-malu dan sungkan kepada pemilik rumah. Rileks saja selayaknya sedang berada di rumah sendiri. Duduk santai saja seperti sedang di pantai. Numpang buang air boleh. Numpang buang sampah juga OK. Asal jangan numpang sholat dan nonton TV. Ga akan bisa sholat sambil nonton TV. Batal.

Cerminan Orangtua [Anak]


We are what we repeatedly do. Baik dan buruknya yang kita lakukan sebagai orangtua, 98% akan diserap oleh anak. Oleh sebab itu kebiasaan menjadi hal yang penting. Jangan heran jika ada kasus kenakalan anak usia sekolah karena latar belakang keluarganya yang broken home. Karena kondisi yang seperti itu sangat mungkin berpotensi menjadi pemicunya.

What If Nobita was a Genius [EF#4]


What if I say that Nobita has a chance to become a genius boy. Will this world become better? Is Nobita wise enough to control the powers that already at his hands? Do you still believe that Nobita is a good guy? Some said we may trust everyone, but not the devil inside them — John Bridger, Italian Job. The one you look as a saint today is not always the same person you will see tomorrow. So I think it would be an exciting viewpoint.

Ada orang bilang, “Jangan remehkan perasaan, karena perasaan itu merupakan kumpulan pengalaman dan pengamatan yang dibumbui oleh suasana hati.” :mrgreen:. Pada prinsipnya, semakin banyak pengalaman dan pengamatan kita, perasaan kita juga akan semakin terasah. Kalau konteksnya adalah tulisan dalam bahasa Inggris, ya banyak-banyaklah membaca buku berbahasa Inggris, sering-seringlah menonton film tanpa subtitle bahasa Indonesia, dan asahlah dengan menulis, menulis, dan menulis. Sehingga mungkin suatu saat kita akan bilang, “Perasaan yang bener gini deh…”.

Apa sih sebenarnya yang dapat kita representasikan ke dalam dunia digital? Apanya yang ada dan tidak ada? Atau apanya yang nyala atau mati? Jawabannya adalah ‘sesuatu‘ kalau kata Syahrini. Kita tahu, sesuatu itu jika dikatakan ada, maka dia pasti mempunyai atribut. Contoh: batu. Sebuah batu kita katakan ada bila dia mempunyai warna, berat, bentuk, kerapatan, jenis mineral, lokasinya dimana, namanya apa, suhu permukaannya berapa, dan masih banyak lagi. Sedangkan batu itu sendiri menempati ruang dan terikat hukum waktu. Karena itulah muncul terminologi pemrograman berorientasi objek (object oriented). Konsep yang didasarkan atas analogi sebuah objek di dunia nyata menjadi objek di dunia digital.

Gadget in a Pervasive World [EF#3]


Sometimes, we do interact with our gadgets as its normal state. I mean, we do not even think about the background processes that involved. We do not even care about the number of commands that will be executed when we press a “play” button on our smart TV. We might not need to imagine what kind of algorithm which is run by our fuzzy washing machine. That is because gradually, we will not realize it as is used to be.

The Wildest Dream: Becoming a President [EF#2]


Most people do not know what will they do in the future, in detail. But when we are talking about dreams, it seems that everyone has their own stories of what do they most want to do. Climbing the highest mountain peak in the world? Going around to the most exotic spots in every country? Or just spending the old days with fishing and farming?

Moving On [EF#1]


Some people have had developed their resolution into something that only the future can hold. It is called prediction, or we used to mention it as forecast, on an extremely special case definition. In my opinion, prediction is more reasonable. It is because, basically, the predictions are based on statistics. Prediction about the trends of the web design, weather prediction, and so on. While I am not really sure what basis that is used by the forecast.

Pengguna Jalan Prioritas di Indonesia


Sepertinya sudah cukup jelas, bahwa prioritas paling tinggi adalah kendaraan-kendaraan yang mempunyai tingkat urgensi tinggi dalam kepentingan umum, kondisi darurat, dan menyangkut nyawa orang. Tapi, implementasinya di negara ini kadang suka aneh-aneh. Ya, harap maklum, kalau tidak nyeleneh bukan Indonesia namanya.

Persiapan Pulang


Akibat kejadian ini dan beberapa peristiwa kecelakaan jatuhnya pesawat yang cukup kerap melanda maskapai penerbangan Indonesia, saya jadi mikir. Bagaimana jika seandainya saya adalah salah satu penumpang dari pesawat yang jatuh tersebut. Takut, itu pasti. Beberapa kali naik pesawat, kadang tangan dan kaki saya gemetar dengan sendirinya. Mungkin saya menderita phobia ketinggian, walaupun logika saya tetap menolak hal itu. Tapi di samping itu, mungkin saya akan merasa bersyukur, karena sempat mempersiapkan diri sebelum berpulang, walaupun sesaat.

Makan Apa?


Pertimbangan paling utama adalah, siapa yang kita beri makan. Kebanyakan orang, termasuk saya sendiri, seringkali lupa siapa sesungguhnya yang kita beri makan. Makanan sih masuknya ke tubuh kita. Tapi seringnya yang justru kita beri “sesajen” adalah nafsu, amarah, stres, patah hati, kebosanan, dan sejenisnya. Berapa banyak orang yang tiba-tiba menjadi makhluk buas pemakan segala ketika sedang stres? Berapa banyak orang yang ketagihan mengonsumsi asap rokok dan kopi pahit demi mengusir rasa bosan? Berapa banyak orang yang mati nenggak narkoba hanya karena gengsi pada awalnya?

ATM Bermasalah


ATM-nya restart sendiri bo’. Perasaan, ATM itu di-restart kalau pas ada petugasnya datang, pas mau refill uangnya. Ya bukan ya? Atau saya saja yang ndeso. Hehe. Karena kepo, ya sudah, saya pantengin saja sekalian, mulai dari booting sampai jalan lagi aplikasinya. Rupanya spek komputernya terhitung jadul. Kalau tidak salah ya… prosesor masih menggunakan Pentium 4, RAM masih di kisaran 512MB, dan OS-nya menggunakan Windows XP. Berhubung sudah kepalang kepo, pas proses booting sengaja saya pencet-pencet semua tombolnya. Berharap ada sesuatu yang terjadi. Dan ternyata benar, proses booting-nya sempat ter-interrupt.
