Romanticizing My Cooking

Bakso I have to admit that my love for cooking is growing. It's growing and I can't believe it myself. This feeling has been like this since probably two years ago. Before, cooking felt like a hard work that I had to fulfill. It still is, but the difference is I enjoy it now. So it does not feel like I am forcing myself.  Back then whenever I cooked, it's either wrong recipe or incorrect measurement. It never tasted right. So I gave up cooking just because I never found the right one. And then I started to feel that I wanna eat better. I don't want to just eat whatever, I want to know what goes into my body. If I prepare it myself, then I know it's good one.  I don't eat too much sugar, sometimes it is hard to buy one thing outside and has a lot of sugar in it. So cooking it myself will allow me to control the amount of sugar. So I found recipes and I tried to make them. As to my surprise, they taste right! Exactly how they should have tasted. That made me happy

Time runs so fast

Tomorrow is 2016. Time runs so fast. I still remember the first day on 2015, I felt that “Okay.. it gonna be next 12 months”. But time runs so fast. So fast. I felt it’s still January, but yesterday I realize that it is December already. Oh well..
 
What had happened in 2015?

As a life, there are always 2 opposite things. Like happiness and sadness. Like black and white. Like up and down. I felt it much. I remember when I went to Jakarta 2 times in a month. I moved to a new place, a place that wouldn’t be my choice but now I am used to it *unless, someone who always ask me to resign and move back to my lovely place*. First half of year 2015 was great. And next half of year 2015, problems comes one by one. No use to write the problems but yeah problem just a problem. Also I have to wait more… ok.. no problem *it used to be a problem, but now*. I did cried a lot and more often than usual. Just to release the burdens.

My mind couldn’t remember all of things that had happened in 2015.

Wishes for 2016?

Well.. everyone wants to be better day by day. It’s not about the year, just everyone have to be better day by day. And have benefits for others. Me and my beloved people stay healthy, safe and most of all we should be thankful for everything that we have.

For a moment, I lose all my cheerful, lose hope, being pessimistic, didn’t trust anyone, lose everything. I didn’t consider myself as the most person that suffers from all difficult problems, no. just… weary. All those problems happen almost in same time. I even couldn’t believe that it happen to myself. Not about this problem could happen to me, no, but about losing all of my optimist character, cheerful, trust. For a moment, yes.

All that I need is time. Because it will be healed by the time. It could be so hurting now, but I am sure it will be healed soon. Usually I don’t need much time to be healed, but for now I need much more time to be healed. 

Karena memang sesungguhnya Allah tidak akan memberikan cobaan diluar batas kemampuan manusia.

Well.. it is life. It won’t stop until it is asked to.

Thank you and sorry for everyone, for every moments, for everything in whole 2015.

Let’s be positive and optimist in 2016!!

Mengenal Nyai, Eyang Buyut Orang Indo Kebanyakan

  Seperti yang pernah saya tulis sebelumnya tentang darah campuran Eropa, saya pernah janji nulis tentang orang Indo dan Nyai, nenek buyut dari para Indo kebanyakan. Sekarang kita liat definisi dari Indo sendiri. Jadi Indo (Indo-Europeaan atau Eropa Hindia) adalah para keturunan yang hidup di Hindia Belanda (Indonesia) atau di Eropa yang merupakan keturunan dari orang Indonesia dengan orang Eropa (Kebanyakan Belanda, Jerman, Prancis, Belgia). Itulah kenapa saya agak risih mendengar orang menyebut Indonesia dengan singkatan Indo. Karena kedua hal itu beda definisi dan arti. Sekarang apa itu Nyai? Apa definisi dari Nyai? Nyai adalah seorang perempuan pribumi (bisa jadi orang Indonesia asli), Tionghoa dan Jepang yang hidup bersama lelaki Eropa di masa Hindia Belanda. Hidup bersama atau samenleven yang artinya kumpul kebo, tidak menikah. Fungsinya nyai itu apa? Fungsinya diatas seorang baboe dan dibawah seorang istri, tapi wajib melakukan kewajiban seorang baboe dan istri. Karena mem

[Piknik] Prambanan lagi

Salah satu pesona Jawa Tengah adalah Candi Prambanan. Saya sudah 3 kali berkunjung ke situs warisan dunia ini. Candi yang terletak di perbatasan Jawa Tengah dan jogja ini selalu menimbulkan kesan mistis bagi saya. Terletak tak jauh dari jalan raya, sehingga mengunjunginya pun sangat mudah. Berbeda dengan Candi Borobudur yang letaknya sangat jauh dari jalan raya besar.  Ok, menurut saya ada 3 cara menuju candi ini. Menggunakan bus transjogja, taksi, dan kendaraan pribadi. Bagi yang menggunakan transjogja, saya pernah menggunakannya berangkat dari daerah kampus UNY, daerah Depok Sleman. 1 kali transit, 2 kali berganti bus. Dengan harga transjogja yang kala itu, 2014, seharga 3500 rupiah. Tapi sampai saat ini masih sama harganya, menurut info dari teman. Lokasi shelter bis berada agak jauh dari pintu masuk lokasi candi, mungkin kira-kira 500meter sampai 1kilometer. Kalau jalan, menghabiskan waktu sekitar 15-20menit. Bisa juga naik becak untuk opsi yang lain. Lagi-lagi, jangan lupa men
