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. Continue reading My Bio-Cycle Story [EF#12]

Mind Yourself-ie


Selfie, siapa sih yang tdiak tahu istilah selfie? Rasanya semua kalangan pengguna intrnet sudah akrab dengan yang namanya selfie. 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. Continue reading Mind Yourself-ie

Elisya dan Anemia Aplastik


Originally posted on santistory:
Gadis cilik itu bernama Elisya Agustin Indallah. Biasa dipanggil Elisya. Hari ini sudah hampir 2 bulan gadis manis itu meninggalkan teman-teman bermainnya dan bangku sekolahnya di kelas 4 SD Negeri Cisarua Sukabumi untuk mendapatkan perawatan medis lanjutan  di Bandung. Tepatnya di Rumah Sakit Hasan Sadikin Bandung. Saya sendiri mulai mengenal Elisya lewat komunitas volunteering saya @Blood4LifeID.  Saat itu ada permintaaan darah AB+ yang cukup banyak dan terus menerus. Setelah menghubungi pendamping pasien, kakak Elisya yang bernama Rizki, akhirnya diperoleh informasi bahwa Elisya menderita Anemia Aplastik.  Menurut Wikipedia, Anemia Aplastik adalah suatu kondisi di mana sumsum tulang… Continue reading Elisya dan Anemia Aplastik

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 Traditional Pastry and Cakes [EF#10]


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 Continue reading Indonesian Traditional Pastry and Cakes [EF#10]

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. 😀 Continue reading Profesi dan Pekerjaan

Photography 101: Bliss – Ignorance is a Bliss


Some said ignorance is a bliss. You will always feel happy when you do not know what makes you unhappy. You will never get into trouble when you really do not know what the trouble means. What makes us human being so complex is because we are always concerned about the complexity itself. Relax, enjoy your existence, live your life as the greatest gift ever.

Photography 101: Home – Fireplace


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.
