If Money Wasn't The Problem, What Would You Do?

In this extraordinary life, I would be a teacher still.  Helping people to understand even some little things to make them feel worthy and understand themselves better. It seems that teaching has become a calling for me. Not about teaching such specific subject like mathematics or so, but more like... I like to give new perspectives for people, and having them saying "Oh.... I see..." is satisfying for me. Of course, by teaching I can learn so many new perspectives from different people too. It's like the more I teach the more I learn, and that is so true. Maybe more like a guide. I like giving guidance to people who needs it. No, I don't like giving unsolicited guiding. I like to guide people who wants to be guided. I'd teach them how to love, love themselves first. Yea sure when we are talking about things, they would say "do useful things like engineering, plumbing, this and that" but they tend to forget that we need some balance in life. Not saying t

Do We Need To Use A Plastic Straw?

 
Both I bought in Bali, the stainless was bought in Menjangan, the bamboo was bought in Little Talks Ubud

As we all know, plastic is one of the best inventions in the world. Unfortunately, this is becoming our main problem now. Too many plastic wastes that threaten the future of this earth. Here I am relying on people who work for biodegradable plastic. I hope that will works.

There are mostly two arguments about the usage of straw. Some people said that they use straw for medical and hygienic reasons. Some of them say they don't need to use the straw. For those who said that they need a straw for the medical reason, I can understand it. I can also understand how people need it for hygienic reason. They don't trust people enough that they clean the glass properly. As well as they might not clean up the spoon, fork, knife, and plate properly.

Everybody has their own reason. The thing is can they replace the plastic straw with something reusable if they can't live without straw?

When we went to Menjangan, this resort provides a very eco-friendly resort with less plastic usage. I don't need to explain how bad the plastic waste recently right? I just want to encourage people to use the reusable straw if they really need the straw. It could be stainless steel straw, could be the one from bamboo (I have them all). One straw cost at least 15k-20k. Such a cheap price for a lifetime straw.

How to clean up the straw? Put a little bit more effort to do that because when you use it for drinking thick yogurt, and not directly wash it, believe me, you will need to put a little bit extra effort to clean up. Could use some hot water or boil the straw, and use the brush for straw (which I just ordered today, cost 15k-40k depend on how beautiful the package is). But this isn't the problem right? You also wash your spoon and fork, then why not with your straw? (I start to imagine bringing my own spoon fork knife to eat in the restaurant 😯).

From the economic perspective, it might bring some lost for entrepreneurs who use plastic as their main sector, but self-awareness is also needed. Aware of how using plastic too much is threatening the world. It is happening now.

Two options: Let your kids suffer in a very bad world in future or try to save it now!

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] 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
