Meet and Greet with Tere Liye

Since I love all of novels written by Tere Liye, hence this is a very special moment for me as I always adore the best novel I ever read ; “Rembulan Tenggelam di Wajahmu”. The event just took place in Islamic Book Fair 2014 at Istora Senayan today March 9th. What make me so proud of him is as what he said when a young girl asked why there is not much words describing about his biography in all of his novels even there are some without biography at all, then he answered: “The most important thing from writing a book is it is read by others and they can take something useful. The purpose of a writing is finished up there. It does not really matter whether readers then know who is the author, how he looks, etc.” Then I a bit surprise to know that what he is doing for live is being an accountant :p

Indonesia Fashion Week 2014

Yeaayyyy… Here are some photos from IFW 2014. Those were taken when I went there on February 22nd, the last two days. Here is the place to adore the creation of talented designers. It’s not only about shopping at this time, but how to, what to, what next. How to create this beautiful dress? What to use as the fabric? What’s the plan next?

They said pink color personality is an identity of feminity then those who love this color are loving, kind, generous and sensitive to the needs of others. But for me pink is the identity of passionate and spirit.

Ujung Genteng

Ini ceritanya saya dan keluarga menghabiskan dua hari di detik-detik berakhirnya tahun 2013 di ujungnya Pulau Jawa: Ujung Genteng, Sukabumi. Perjalanan yang menghabiskan waktu berkisar tujuh jam di dalam mobil dengan perut dikocok-kocok dan badan digoyang-goyang aduhai karena jalan yang berkelok-kelok lumayan membuat saya semakin penasaran seperti apa indahnya pantai di sana.

Suhu udara yang panas dan sinar matahari terik menyengat kulit menyambut kami ketika tiba pertama kali di Ujung Genteng. Lokasi penginapan tidak langsung berhadapan dengan pantai. Butuh kurang lebih lima menit dengan berjalan kaki untuk bisa melihat ombak berkejaran secara langsung. Selepas ashar saya dan keluarga menuju lokasi penangkaran penyu. Lokasinya kurang lebih memakan waktu 15 menit untuk sampai di tujuan.

Menjelang matahari terbenam, penyu-penyu kecil pun dilepaskan. Sayangnya, saya tidak mengabadikan momen ini dalam gambar, melainkan dalam video berdurasi singkat. Menurut salah seorang petugas penangkaran penyu, penyu-penyu kecil yang dilepaskan dapat kembali lagi ke pantai dimana mereka dilepaskan untuk pertama kalinya dalam kurun waktu sekitar 30 tahun lagi, dengan syarat tidak ada intervensi dari manusia seperti memegang atau menghalang-halangi jalan penyu menuju air. Hal ini dapat mengganggu kepekaan penyu kecil terhadap lingkungan pantai. Pada malam hari, setiap akhir pekan kita juga dapat menyaksikan induk penyu bertelur. Hanya saja ini dikenakan biaya 150 ribu rupiah per pengunjung.

Salah satu perbedaan pantai di Ujung Genteng dengan pantai-pantai lainnya saya kira adalah tidak adanya permainan air seperti speed boat, banana boat dan lainnya. Selain itu, pantainya masih bersih. Cuma kekurangannya lokasi yang jauh dari pusat kota, akses jalan yang buruk dan keterbatasan warung-warung penjual makanan. 

 

 

Strawberry Picking

June 23, 2013

Going to strawberry field,,,yee..yee

This strawberry field located at Bundesstrasse, Goettingen. It takes around 30 minutes by bike from my apartment.  Here we can pick by ourselves, and pay only 2.3 € per kg for really big, red and sweet ones.

Strawberries are free if eaten on site, or if we used small plastic bags to put them in.

The strawberries here are very very sweet, like eating papaya told one of my friends. Red color is evenly in each part of it.

Image

 

And here it is, the strawberries taken home, weighted 2 kg of something.
