Hey, I Am Turning 30!

I always thought that wherever I go, August will be the hottest month of the year. Because it is summer for most people. August is my favourite but I always hated it for being the hottest month. But hey, if I move my ass to Australia, I'll be having August in winter!  I forgot that Australia is different. Although it is considered winter, the weather seems good between 15-22 degrees. It's the best temperature ever. August is my favourite month of the year.  Anyway, I am turning 30 today. A new milestone. I am feeling anxious lately. Some people said, "You're a young adult in your 20s but you became an adult when you turn 30" yea that definitely didn't help my anxiety.  When my mum was 30, I was already 10. So yes I had this in my mind, "30 is serious age, by that time I am probably married, have one of two toddlers." Everything was planned traditionally just like how I saw my mum. Graduate, job, married, having kids, living like a normal family. Turn

Smartphone and our lives

Android based - Smartphone or tablet are familiar in our lives now. People still keep in touch although thousands miles away apart. Many kind of applications that can connect us with other people, such as Line, WhatsApp, Kakao Talk, and many more. I know those applications offered by smartphone make us feel easy to do many things with our smartphone. The first time when I got my smartphone, I said “Sophisticated”.  Yeah that’s right! Sophisticated. I can do many things with my smartphone, I have all my teaching materials in it, I can surfing easily and faster, I can talk to other people by free phone using application, I can share my pictures easily using Instagram (since I like photography), if come to new places I can’t get lost or deceived by taxi driver because I have my GPS hehe. One day I got problem with my smartphone, it can not be turned on and it makes me frustrated. Why? Because I have class and my all materials teaching in smartphone.Ohh,, really I can’t live without my smartphone. My mom said that my smartphone and Sammy (my laptop) are half of myself haha. That’s true mom.

See, there are many things that smartphone can do, and of course help us. Give us many things that we can’t imagine before. the newest type will increase the capabilities. Of course, the developer will make it more and more sophisticated.

But there is something that maybe we forget. Maybe we’re getting excited with smartphone and forget that we are a human too. We’re human being, need to say “hi” to other people too. The real “hi”, not just say “hi” by phone. Maybe we can say hi by phone if we are living far each other. But what if we live in same place? I mean if we go to somewhere  together, we often play with smartphone rather than talking with friends. Sometimes we play on facebook, twitter, or others while going out with friend. Ok, let say, friend still have other things to do, but it’s pathetic when see family going out to eat and dad, mom, even kids play on their own smartphone. They weren't talk each other. They just talk with their own smartphone. So if I see those, I just see mom dad and kids out together, order foods, and play with smartphone while waiting. Doesn't look like family, just look like a man, a woman, and kids eat together in same table without knowing each other, or maybe "who are you?".  I mean, if family going out together, just make it become quality time with family. Maybe parents busy at work and kids busy at school, so they out and make a good time. But unfortunately, the gadget make them far away. They stay close, but far. If you know what I mean.

Smartphone hmmm something that we can’t avoid for now (actually for me hehe), but don’t forget that we are human being and we need to communicate with human and living being. It’s ok having smartphone that help us, just don’t let our smartphone take control our real life. Our lives too precious to taken over by technology.

*haha bahasa gueh*

Ujian hari senin

Kejadian ini terjadi tepat senin minggu lalu. Baru kali itu aku merasa 'WOW.. ini senin yeay'. Karena biasanya 'haduhh udah senen lagi'. Kebayang kan kalo seneng begitu dihari senen menyambut pagi dan hari itu rasanya langka banget. Otomatis pengennya hari itu berlangsung indah. Jam setengah 9 pagi, seperti biasa ke pantry ambil minum bareng sama temen sebangku. Dia bikin teh, aku nyuci botol sekalian ngisi dong. Seperti biasa juga, kadang aku males sih nyuci botol dengan ritual lengkapnya, akhirnya cuman bilas pake air panas. Ya mungkin nggak sampe 50 ml juga. Dikit banget deh. Temen juga selalu bersihin gitu gelasnya pake air panas. Pic source is here Eh lakok lakok... si bapak pantry yang serem itu tiba-tiba bilang 'Gak bisa ya gak nyuci botol pake air panas? Tiap sore itu banyak komplain gara-gara airnya abis'. Yakaliii air abis tinggal isi aja, ibu yang dulu aja nggak pernah ada komplain. Ya aku bilang lah ini cuman dikit, lagian yang ngelakuin ini

Jumat ceria

Hari ini memang bukan hari jumat, tapi cuman mau bilang aja sih kalo hari yang paling aku tunggu-tunggu itu hari jumat. Why?   Karena jumat itu selalu ceria, kalopun ada meeting besar pasti di hari jumat dan banyak cemilan, orang-orang pada berangkat sholat jumat, yang nasrani juga mengikuti misa di kantor, bisa pake baju bebas dan bebas berekspresi sepuas-puasnya, dan..... bisa video call sepuasnyaaaaaa kapanpun karena dia libur kerja 😍😍 gambarnya lucu 😁  taken from internet

[Piknik] Menjejakkan kaki di Bromo

Puluhan tahun hidup sebagai warga Jawa Timur, namun baru pertama kali menjejakkan kaki di Gunung Bromo. Bertepatan dengan upacara Kasada yang terjadi satu tahun sekali dan bertepatan dengan bulan purnama (semoga nggak salah kasih info), sekitar akhir bulan Juli tahun 2015.  Gunung Bromo merupakan gunung yang bertetangga dengan gunung Semeru. Jika kita pergi kesana, maka akan melihat banyak tulisan BTS -yang saya kira Behind The Scene-, ternyata adalah Bromo Tengger Semeru. Tidak hanya melihat gunung Bromo seorang, disana kita akan disajikan jejeran gunung-gunung kecil disana. Ok.. first of all mari dimulai dari berangkat ke Bromo. Menuju Bromo bisa menyetir motor sendiri, bisa juga menyewa tour dari titik keberangkatan (seperti yang saya lakukan), bisa menggunakan ojek seharga 100ribu per ojek sepuasnya, bisa menyewa jeep dari titik mula menuju Bromo (dengar-dengar sih harganya 600ribu/jeep, satu jeep bisa untuk 4-6 orang tergantung ukuran badan orangnya heheh). Jeep yang saya
