Went picnic with my girls due to the perfect weather and imperfect financial but we craving for meet-up. So I got an idea to held a summer picnic by the lake in our hometown and all the girls agreed about that. Since we had to minimize the budget (in this case was about the food and beverage we should bring) so we divided into 4 part. Those who brought carbohydrate, those who brought protein, those who brought fruits/vegetable, and those who brought minerals/snacks. I was chosen to brought carbohydrate and I decided to make fried rice and pancake coupled with home made strawberry jam. 

Another girls, brought protein. It was actually Zulfa who had to bring it but sadly, he couldn't came along with us due to her father was sick so he had to went home immediately. It went to Cita. She was chosen to brought minerals, snacks and protein. Sweet and fresh fruits went to Tia whilst veggies salad went to Lucy. She also made her home made kroket which was SOOOO GOOOD!

I'm speechless not because I sad to know the truth.
It's been.. 2 years.
I'm speechless because this is the stupid way to realizing. 
It is the higher level of moron.
Laugh to myself. 
Laugh out loud.
Because the stream of life is way too funny, sometimes.
It's enough. 
It is stupid enough.

Hi! Firstly first I'd like to say Happy Holiday to all of you! We're gonna hit the end-year of 2014. OMG Time flies! Well, as I said before at my Instagram (btw you can check my Instagram account @firamusyaddad hihi) that I'd like to share my experiences and recipe with Letusee Home Made Pesto I found in Yogyakarta (I bought online, by the way) SO  here I am excited to write the post about it during my messy time typing for my final project report. 

I am a kinda pasta lover. I'd like to try many various pasta dish. One of my list is Pesto Pasta. You may find Bolognese, Alfredo, Marinara, Aglio e Olio, Carbonara etc. easily here in my hometown but I noticed there are a few restaurants serves Pesto Pasta due to its weirdest color (like GREEN!), or for some another reasons. I don't know. Even if it possible to find here, I still haven't an opportunities to give it a try. You know, 'wallet-alert' and my busy-crazy day at campus. I googled, and found that make a homemade Pesto Pasta was actually way too easy. First option, you have to make your own Pesto Sauce yet you can't find Basil Leaves easily here at the hometown (again. OMG) Second option, you have to looking for an Instant Pesto Pasta at the nearest groceries. I chose the second one. I found it, and it imported all the way from Italy. Yay! But there's no Halal label on it. Problem. 


As a follower of Diana Rikasari, I found Letusee. It's halal and it also send from my loveliest country, Yogyakarta (which is mean the customer service must be sooooo friendly). I am a happy kid. I was wondering.. how does the taste of Pesto would be like. I know I am so cheesy hahahaha but yap. I decided to make simple pesto pasta with shrimp and cherry tomato (play save!). Here is my simple recipe : 

I've been super duper busy lately. Not lately actually but since my last post about HomeVisit #3 and I have to back to school then start my daily collage life which is BUSY! Well, one major update that I'd like to share here is about got new another nephew! Little 'buntel' Muhammad Adhyaksa Narotama, and we all call him Aksa :) 

Ramadhan 1435H was his first Ramadhan he spent with this new little family. 

By the way, we all finally collected again after almost 6 months separated for intern. All of us is on our way to graduate April 2015. Wish us luck! 

Leaving Jogjakarta is never be so easy.

Anyway, what I want to share here is about my two days off every weekend. I looooovvveee weekend since the weekdays is always run crazier every single day. I always dedicated my weekend for myself, my family, and sometimes friend BUT it turned out with finish a bunch of tasks for the next week (because of the due date is always one week later) it's not fair. There are soooo many activities that I want to do during my weekend but always excluded by another thing (or another task -_-) and sometimes excluded because there are just too many. TOO MANY! Maybe because some last week's thoughts has postponed and need to realize this weekend, where this weekend I have the another thought and another activity to do. It's like accumulate every week and getting bigger....... No wonder why I have no enough time to spare for writing a post on blog. Even just some simple thought.

I wanna do this, I wanna do that, I wanna cook this, I wanna make that, I wanna try dat restaurant, I wanna go here and there, I wanna buy this, I wanna buy that thing, all in just 2 days-off with a lot of tasks awaits. Well, life has a funny way! :) 

The Home Visit #3 which was held at my house ran soooo well! I feel so happy! I even still feel exhausted from head to toe LOL. Watch out! There are bunch of picture here.

Picture above is actually a laundry! It located between two main rooms at the second floor of my house. Behind that old-greenish door is ironing room and the place where I took this picture is terrace of my room and my sister-in-law's. I was just too attractive to installed the bunting flags everywhere, with flowers and wash machine as the table x) The weather recently was so good in Semarang. Mostly cloudy but not rain that hard. I thought that's perfect weather to start summer holiday and Ramadan Month! 

About fifteen demisioners attended, some of them didn't make any reservation LOL. We shared the dish, and I loooove my Roasted Chicken. The result was even better than my fist attempt. Golden beautiful, crisp outside (and lil bit burn on the surface because my roaster is turn out so small for my chicken LOL but still so good)

Soda Lemonade ft. Nice Weather! Love love.
 Bunting flags madness!

 Spoiler : Shoe Shelves my messy room

 Last home visit was actually to celebrate our achievement as the best UKM 2013/2014. I made them a chocolate flour-less cake but I used too many white eggs. The result was still good but end up like chocolate pudding. LOL! Need more experiment and practice, I guess x)

 Most of them really use chill square pattern shirt as the dress code LOL. Some of them text me to asked how if they couldn't find/wear square pattern shirt. Of course it was totally alright, it just for fun. Not that real. I'm appreciate your attendance instead. Love you guys!


See you on the next Home Visit! (maybe)
See you when I see you.
Happy Fasting! 

Cooking is my new escape from sorrow. I still in sorrow by the way (I know I know, is getting overrated) Well, being in grocery or stationer's is much happier than being in shopping center for me. Seriously! Watching all of those green and fresh fish, meats or adoring the cute stationer's stuffs are my pleasure. Last weekend, I decided to went home (due to my mourning moment, I need to go home) and tried a Roasted Chicken recipe.

I' gonna held a summer party by the end of this month. I invited some of my friends to come to my house, and this dish will be our main course. In early morning, I started with looked for a whole perfect chicken and some side dish. For the details, here I show you the ingredients of what I need to make this roasted chicken :
- A whole chicken (it's about 1 kg. Don't forget to wash it and dry it with paper towel.)
- Sweet Corn
- Onions
- Garlics
- Lemon Slices
- Oyster sauces (Here's the different, in some Roasted Chicken Recipes I found, it doesn't need an oyster sauce, but this time I put about a table spoon of oyster sauce just because I think oyster sauce and chicken is a perfect combination)
- Chili flakes
- Black pepper
- Salt 
- Butter
- Chicken Powder 
- Dried Oregano 

Notes : watch out about the cross contamination on your cutting board. You better treat your vegetables first before the chicken. Again, sorry if I'm not dropping some photos during the process of making this roasted chicken, I was home alone and nobody took a proper picture of the process so, pardon, yes? ;)

Here we go : 
Cut the corn, slice the onion a bit ticker, chop the garlic and dice the another one
Take a bowl to start mixing the spices. Put along, butter, chopped garlic, oyster sauce, salt, pepper/blackpepper, chicken powder, chili flakes, and oregano. Mix them up!
Done with the spices mixture and veggies, set aside. Let's treat the chicken. This is important to make your chicken quite dry/moist. Don't let your chicken watering/there's a water on your chicken. dry it up perfectly, to make it easy to seasoning the chicken skin/surface. 
Spread your spices mixture into the whole chicken surface.
Put the slice onion, diced garlic, and lemon slice inside the chicken body. Put along the corn into the tray, around the chicken
Pre-heat the oven 425F or about 220C, and roast the chicken for about 1 hour and 30 minutes (mine) or 1 hours 45 minutes or more to get the crispy golden brownish chicken skin

Et Voilà!

The chicken may looked pale, but trust me that was cooked very well. Tender inside, crispy and tasty outside. Make sure to roast your chicken properly and there's no pink juice when you test by slicing the chicken legs. You won't eat your tasty chicken with Salmonella bacteria inside, right? If 1 hour 45 minutes with 220C is not enough you can increase it or roast it little longer (based on your oven) but my chicken with that size, roasted enough for 1 hour and 30 minutes. You should try! I even pulled the chicken legs easily. Effortless! DAT CHICKEN WAS SOOOOOO DAMN GOOD!

"..Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right

Life is funny, and surprising you every minute. Have you ever been in a situation where you feel super-extra-continuous happy at the same time, then suddenly something happened which make you feel super-extra-continuous upset into the deep? How to say it without looks so pathetic. Yes I have. 

Last week was my mix-up day. Speedy NBL Indonesia season 2013-2014 Championship Series was held at Jogjakarta. Being here for about 5 month and had a chance to watch the Grand Final live is actually not my plan. It was just coincidentally, and I'm in my best luck. I'm in!

"This is gonna be my last year watching this season's finale live! I'm gonna be the witness who's gonna be the champion this season. I just can't wait. I'm gonna watch my favorite players, my favorite teams! I won't be focus at the office only for this week. I'm gonna feel the atmosphere of basketball court, the noise, squeak of basketball shoes! YaAllah I just can't wait!" 

Shortly, I came to the Grand Final along with my friends, Handy, Roga, Dwiki, and July. My happiness was complete for not coming alone at the Grand Final, right? But my happiness has stopped after I realize that I lost my phone. 10 minute before I lost my phone, my camera roll was fulfilled with the picture of me and Yudhi (PJE#41), Ary Chandra (PJE#25), Hendru Ramli (PJE#31), Andi 'Batam' (PJE#5), Ponsianus 'Komink' (PJE#13), and Kelly (PJE#3). I was in the top of my happiness. Happiness to the peak! In a minutes later, all gone. ALL GONE!!

This phone I bought as the present of my achievement on college, to give an appreciation for my last GPA. I deserve something better. I saved my money almost a year to have this thing, I kept my money from every income. I hold myself for not buying a pair of my favorite kicks this time. Mom and Dad always taught me to save my own money if I want to have some stuff, at least let Mom and Dad add the rest of it, not whole of it. They might could buy this thing for me, but that's not the point. Mom and Dad hope that by saving money, struggling to achieve something could make everything means a lot, that there's an effort behind the story of things I have. I know I've been very childish to crying over this thing, but this mean that  I have to start it from the very beginning. Save my money from the very beginning. Does it need a year again? :( 

I spent the day after I lost my phone at home, to shocked and took time to introspection, and then the next day spent to shocked and introspection (again) and a bit cry. I just bought it less than 2 month and I have to lost it this fast. Maybe this is for balancing. God sent me an infinitive happiness, then sent me an infinitive sadness at the same time. I lost my phone 10 minutes before the Grand Final started. 10 minute! With all those laser party, music, dark court, stunning laser dance. Can you imagine how I felt? I really had no idea, I just watched all those fanfare, but I felt nothing. The day that I was waiting for a long time, the day that supposed to be the perfect day ever, end-up with flat feelings ever. 

Humans will never understand what's God plan by this incident. I am strong enough to finally write an entry about what happened to me. Maybe for some people who read this, think that I'm just overreacting. It's okay about your opinion or maybe you have to feel the same way like me. Not your phone for example, It might be happen to your favorite sneakers? your favorite t-shirt? camera or something that you think means a lot for your life, because sometimes there's a story behind your stuff, the struggling, the effort to have that thing. It may priceless and irreplaceable. 

By this entry, I'd like to inform you that I temporarily couldn't reached via line/whatsapp/path/twitter/facebook for mobile direct information. Twitter and Facebook might possible but not directly anymore. You can send me simple text message to my oldish phone number. Well, see you when I see you :)

I am so haaaaappy to finally could bring this baby home as my late birthday gift from myself. Yap! Since few years ago I try to appreciate myself by giving a birthday present on my own birthday hehehehehe I once bought myself shoes then this time I bought something different. You know I like cooking lately. For me, cooking is another way to express myself beside painting and drawing. I love how some ingredients combined well and turns out good in taste. I've been looked for so many recipes and saved it to my drive, many various of dish, from Asian cuisine, Mexican, Western, Indonesian, France, and so on. Mostly, I prefer to look for some dish who has simple ingredients and easy to be found here. Homecook is my motto! 
Some of the recipes I found must be cooked using oven/microwave. I tried to get rid of recipes that using an oven. Then someday, I realized that too many recipes using an oven that I get rid of. Until someday, my sister-in-law asked me to cook her some Salmon. She ate more Salmon since doctor said that she's pregnant. That was the first time I treat Salmon. I had to be so careful to treat 'em due to the texture. It's fragile and breakable. The most recommendation I  found on internet that time was Pan Seared Salmon. It was the simplest one. Seasoning then sear. I have to sear the salmon, then roast it briefly. Salmon shouldn't over-cooked on pan, just make them crispy and brownish on the outside then cooked the inside by roasting it into the oven, but I end up by burning the Salmon on pan T.T because I thought the inside are still bloody, you know my sister-in-law cannot eat raw fish because she's pregnant. It was still good but, my sis end-up by oiling his mouth :( Ok well, I think it's time to have an oven! 

Small, affordable, low watt, and easy to use. Here it is : 

 Kirin KBO-90M 
I should bought one series upper than this, but the watt is higher.

Yayy! I'm a happy kid! I bought with my own money that I saved last week. My first attempt was cake. I used to hate making a cake. Why? Because it requires precise calculation on each ingredients and I have no idea about grams, ons, kg, cups and whatsoever. Plus, we cannot fix the cake if it turns out different from what it should be, hahahaha! I used to add this and that if I got fail in food experiment hahahaha but this time I'd like to challenge myself. Started from the easiest and unusual one; Flourless Chocolate Cake. 

I found this recipe from Bleubird that attracts my intention because it Flour-less. No need to pour some flour! All you need are just these five simple ingredients that must be found near house : 
(adjust the number based on your brass and portion, mine is about 10 centimeter for the diameter)

  • 6-7 eggs
  • 250 gr Dark Chocolate
  • 2 tbs of Sugar
  • 1 ons Salted Butter (Mrs. James suggest to use unsalted but I couldn't find it)
  • Sugar Powder to give a snowy effect on the cake hehe

1. Separate the eggs yolk and white eggs into the different bowl. 
2. Chop the Dark Chocolate Bar into pieces and steam it. After it perfectly melted, add 1 ons of salted butter into melted chocolate and stir. (The smell of butter and chocolate are everlasting good!)
3. Mix the eggs yolk and sugar until it looked pale yellow.
4. Mix the white eggs until it looks like meringue. You have to add some sugar to make it like meringue. I did.
5. Slowly pour your chocolate melted into the mixed egg yolk. NOTE: let the chocolate melted a bit chill to avoid your egg yolk turned into scramble egg. It will looked like this : 

I choose to mix it again with mixer machine a little bit to make them fused perfectly. I brought along my phone to cheat the recipes hehehehe

6. After that, add your meringue-looks-alike (your whipped white eggs) and stir it slowly until it perfectly fused. DO NOT USE MIXER MACHINE!
7. Spread the butter on your brass surface, then pour the mixture onto your brass. 
8. While pouring your mixture or spread the butter on your brass, you have to pre-heat your oven. I did it on 250 degrees for 5 minutes before I bake. 
9. After that, put it into the oven and bake it about 50 minutes
10. 50 minutes passed, and done! Serve and dust with sugar powder and berries or orange just like mine!

*This is important to remind that you have you know the character of your oven. I set my oven on 250 degrees during baking, and took about 50 minutes. The result was totally good & succeed! The taste, the texture, moist inside and it taste like chocolate galore, but the surface was a bit burn. I had to get rid of that burning part of my cake. I think with this oven, I had to set lower degrees than 250 or maybe takes 10 minutes earlier than 50 minutes. It may different with yours, so explore your oven

I hope you are inspired to make yours at home. Mom, aunt, brother, and my sister-in-law really likes it! I took 3 pieces of my cake to Jogjakarta and let my sister try it as well. She's the 1st fan of my Flour-less cake. This is what will I make on home visit at my house this month as a dessert! Yayness!

Last night was quite good. I spent the night by watching DO OR DIE game of NBL Indonesia Championship Series 2013-2014 Pelita Jaya Energi Jakarta vs Stadium Jakarta to fight a ticket to Semifinal. Well, Pelita Jaya Energi won that game. Go to the semifinal and will face Aspac Jakarta to fight a ticket to Grand Final. After got home, I saw one more fight. Something that I hadn't noticed lately, whereas all the people in this country frequently talk about it through media social. Twitter, Instagram, meme/funny post on Path, Facebook, and etc you name it. Debate Candidates of President; Prabowo Subianto, Hatta Rajasa from Gerindra Party & Joko Widodo, Jusuf Kalla from PDIP Party.This year, Indonesia will held the biggest Democracy Party on Pemilu 2014 as the end of SBY's term on his 2nd period.

I used to like talk about politics, government, minister, and so on related to the state, (that's why I wanted to entry FISIP back then) but after so many fake mission and vision, injustice, violation of human right, huge corruption, conspiracy, harness the power, I feel so so so so so so damn fed up with politics or something related to it. I may not really understand about politics, I'm not even study politics on college. To be honest, those two candidates of President are not attract my attention, yes it was. First time on Pemilu 9 April I prefer to chose Gerindra, which is Prabowo Subianto as the Chairman of that party. Why? It was simply because he's a big man, looked resolute, gallant, looked convincing, and 'Presiden banget' (physically), although at the end, I didn't came along to chose because I was in Jogjakarta already and had no chance to come back home. Then, PDIP was on top, shortly the chairman of PDIP, Megawati Soekarnoputri gave a mandate to Joko Widodo to run for President of Republic of Indonesia 2014-2019. He said yes and collaborated with Jusuf Kalla (Former Vice President of Republic of Indonesia 2004-2009). Prabowo Subianto is also run for President of Republic of Indonesia 2014-2019, collaborated with Hatta Rajasa (Former Ministry of Economy, Father of a boy behind traffic accident which was kill few victims, and that boy is now free). I know all those candidates are great man with cool educational background, with their previous position was also not in doubt. Joko Widodo hasn't finished his job yet to change Jakarta with Basuki Tjahaja Purnama a.k.a Ahok as the Vice of Governor. Some people think that Joko Widodo is only a doll of Megawati. It make sense. As the time goes by, the rumors and history behind the candidates are float. Prabowo turned out to be involved with '98 case. Rumors about pro-America, and whatsoever. I got more confuse. 

My confusing is getting bigger and bigger when I read people's opinions about Prabowo Hatta & Jokowi JK, flooded on twitter timeline, celeb-Instagram comments, thread on KasKus, and news portal. Continuous everyday. Some are make sense and acceptable, some are silly and make me laugh. Brother ask me to sensitive, and intelligently choose by reading trusted source and browse their track-record for a better Indonesia (but I think he's 'STANDONTHERIGHTSIDE' if you know what I mean). This country is also has a right. Right to brought by someone who understand about the character of this country, and about the people who lives in this archipelago. Who's gonna determine? Us. Last night's debate has kick me out to be more sensitive and respect, to be more willing to search the information about Prabowo Hatta and JokowiJK. But now, I'm undecided. At all. 

I saw something the same on yesterday's fight. Both Basketball and Candidates of President have to reach one thing. To win, and then responsibility will following.

I like having new friends. It's like learn about many different type of people, creating connection and relation. When the first time I joined this organization, fulfilling my obligation as a scholarship students, and  increasing my skill in English speaking were my main purpose. Making friend was a bit included, about how to develop that organization was not on my list at that time. So then, I follow all of selection section. Participating as the intern, sign up as the new member, submitted the form and essay project planning, even got interviewed section two times. I was in some organization since junior high school. I even took some part on graduation and showcase when I was on elementary school. I love being included on some project that I like, and yes shortly I love being included as well on this organization. Polytechnic English Conversation Club, because I started to like it. This organization is such a small, quiet yet humble. However, I pushed myself and 1314 people to make some innovation. I want them to break the rule for good, to change their mind, for developing this organization. Sometimes, it sounds ambitious but I know they can do it. My 'break the rule' mind was popping the first time when we held our very first annual meeting to start the term, although my opinion was rejected back then. I knew it that 1314 people were the same. They wanna make some innovation and break the rule. Since that Annual Meeting, I can see how creative 1314 people was. Every project we held was different, there is always something new and cool part. We wanted to always 100%,  maybe sometimes it was not always but at least we try to cover the weakness. Even our final project was out of expectation! it 10001% succeed!! and people know us better than before. About the aim for joining this organization back then, I've forgotten :) All I wanna do was just develop develop develop and make it one-of-a-kind. Things that undeniable is I love how they treat me, how they treat each other in this organization just like their own family. Sometimes, the girls could be my older sister, lil sis, even Mother for me. Those who give their advice, who care, sister who always take me hanging around when bored with college and org meeting/deadline. But at the other time they could turned into those who spoil around, need my advice, need someone to talk to, try to solve their problem. So did the boys, they could be my big bro and my father at the same time. Patient, wise, helpful, someone who can depend on, simple, silly, and even jerk! hahahahaha I never have a problem with all of that people. I am so grateful that my Demisioner chosen us to be 1314 people. I am so grateful of that. 

Our very first proper picture!

We spent so much time together. Sometimes the deadline and meeting was freaking us out. The worry, burden, responsibility, time, energy, tired, hungry, head-stone, arguments, up and down spirit, but we still there. About 98% was still standing until the end of term, and finished their each job well and in maximum level. I'm so proud of being one of those 98% people.

You must be wondering what makes me sure to write down this entry like so touched and trying to tell you that 'true friend does exist though that you just know them on one months or two' ? I saw them crying during our farewell last Sunday. We were all know that by the end of that term, it doesn't mean that our relation is ended anyway. we still be friends but I have to admit that it must be different. 

At the end of June, I'd like to make some little party. Not a true party I mean, there are one left unofficial  project called "Home Visit". The purpose is for getting closer with the family of the hosts. We are know that, been in the organization with continued project a whole year sometimes make us far from home, and parents  lil bit mind of their children's weekend activity. This is what we do, take a visit, meet the parents and whole family that all of those 'weekend activity' on campus was totally positive and paid off. Sometimes we're gonna cooking for lunch and messing up the house chit-chat until the time shows that it's time to go home :) Silaturahmi is a pleasure! 

 Well, 1314 people are now Demisioner!

This time is my turn! I'd like to make it unusual. There are flyer, theme, even dress code for my guests. I've been looking for some dish for treating them. Big meal, to the sweets. I hope this will give their another impression about our very last project! Yippie! I just can't wait!

This entry is originally from Cinta Ruhama Amelz - one of another inspiring blogger in Indonesia. I like the way she think about live nowadays and how social media controls our mind and personality, unconsciously (even I myself feels that way). I'd like to post this entry because, I just felt exactly the same with Kak Tara's entry below. It also happened to me. Enjoy!

today, i'd like to pour some thoughts of mine about social media. i find it's pretty surprising how some people deal with social media, especially about their perception on following, unfollowing, befriending and unsharing. i mean, have you ever got bullied for unfollowing someone on social media?  well, this post is kinda inspired by that experience which i've been through.

a long time ago, this person i know left an awkward comment on a photo of her and me that she uploaded on Instagram. this person is someone i had met by coincidence for a few times and i had sent a message one time telling her that i missed her and that i'd like to hang out with her - because i felt that she'd make a good friend after the nice conversations we had. i thought that is one of the things i can do when i want to be friends with someone. anyway, she mentioned me in that comment that sounded like this, "as i remember, you followed me first. i just realized that you unfollowed me." so i replied this person's comment under the same photo saying that, "it's only Instagram. it's not like we're not friends anymore." with a smiley emoticon at the end of the comment, because i'm friendly like that. i was surprised that she replied like this, "i guess we have a different perception about friendship."


when i read the first comment from her, i paused and thought, is it such a wrong thing to unfollow someone on Instagram after you follow them first? i really don't think there is anything wrong with that. to me, Instagram is a tool to express myself, promote my blog, a source of inspirations and an entertainment for my artistic visual loving eyes. it has absolutely nothing, i repeat, nothing to do with how i state someone's status in my life. i follow accounts on Instagram simply because i'm interested and heart the photos simply because they look great to me. but when i find the photos are no longer interesting nor inspiring, i might unfollow. to me, unfollowing on Instagram or Twitter as well as unsharing on Path does not mean i don't want anything to do in real life with the owner of the account, neither mean i'm ending the friendship with him or her.

i just think there is a big misunderstanding right here. to her, it seemed that we have a different perception about friendship. to me, it seemed that the different perception is about Instagram and i did tried to explain to her about this in the most polite way as possible, but the response was negative and she blocked me on Instagram. since then, i never hear anything from her again nor meet her, but i hope she's doing great.

i really can't blame any person for thinking that one of the requirements to be friends with someone is by following them on Instagram because people are free to have their own perception of friendship or social media. but in my opinion, that way of thinking is immature, shallow and silly. i myself have my own rules with the way i use my social media - i treat my Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Path differently - and if they don't like that they are free to unfollow or unfriend me and i can just chill about it. my Facebook is open to people who wants to get connected with me, i allow anyone to follow my Instagram and Twitter (though that doesn't mean i'm going to follow back), but i'm more picky when it comes to choosing people to connect with on Path because there are things that i'm not comfortable to share with or being shared by others on a Path timeline. even on Twitter and Instagram there are a lot of things from my life that i don't share because i'm not ready or just don't want to. but whether i'm connected to someone through social media or not, showing the eagerness to be friends, respect and being nice to them is a mandatory as long as they treat me the same way.

so really, following, unfollowing, befriending and unsharing on social media is not a big deal for me, but how people question about them is. just like i wouldn't ask anyone, i would rather people not ask me - joking or seriously, "why are you not following me back on Instagram (or Twitter)?" or, "why are you not friends with me on Path?" other than because the answer wouldn't be that easy to spell out (is there any reason that can sound positive for questions like these?), i think the decision on being connected or not to someone on social media is very personal and the reason behind it is not always related with whether one considers someone as his or her friend (or family) or not. i mean, are you ready if the answer is, "because your social media posts suck."? for me, i don't really need to hear that kind of answer, that's why i don't ask. LOL. oh, and something to remember, that unfollow and unshare button is kinda easy to get clicked by accident, so don't let the negative thoughts get you.

i'm writing this post to encourage you, the readers, to be more open-minded when it comes to accepting others' decision to get connected or not with you on social media. i have no intention to offend anyone with this post for i am a person who loves peace.

how about you? do you have thoughts about social media that you'd like to share?

One thing I've been learning from Social Media is; it's totally different with real life. Friendship ended is not determine by clicking unfollow button on social media. Friends in persons are totally different with friends on social media. Your social media is your right. I'm trying to explain myself that do not use your hard-feeling on it. I'm trying to let my social media as my entertainment. Don't get me wrong, the reason why I keep asking to follow back on twitter or instagram is just for keeping contact with my old friends, but if they aren't willing to do that it's just all okay for me. I admitted on Facebook era, when this social media was soooo hype, I invited everyone (including stranger person faraway from my place) and my friends was reaching 2000 back then or maybe growing till now. The more number of your friends, the cooler you were. But not now. I've change my perception about that bold line I typed. The number of friends/follower doesn't matter anyway. as Kak Tara said "... I follow accounts on Instagram simply because i'm interested and heart the photos simply because they look great to me. but when i find the photos are no longer interesting nor inspiring, i might unfollow. to me, unfollowing on Instagram or Twitter as well as unsharing on Path does not mean i don't want anything to do in real life with the owner of the account, neither mean i'm ending the friendship with him or her." 

Just like the way I think. 

*pssst but sometime I can't refuse for not keep following people I don't want to follow. It's about hospitality, and I respect that. Maybe they just need more time to learn :) 

This week, I got one day off on Thursday due to national holiday of Waisak. To make my Thursday explorations are on the track, I prepared the list of 'what should we try' one day before. I am a planner girl. I like everything keeps on the track and manage it well. So the first destination on that day was had breakfast at The Aunties Breakfast Club on Lir. I'm so happy to have a chance to come back there again, as you know, my first visitation on Lir was about a year ago when I came to watch solo exhibition of Lala Bohang. The Aunties is new program which was launch around February this month by Lir. Lir itself is basically an art space and restaurant. The Aunties (@auntiesbreakfastclub) open started from 06.30 a.m to 12.00 a.m. They serve various kind of breakfast meals such as toast, cereal, oats, milk, tea, coffee, eggs, sausage and so on. I was barely hard to find that place (at the second time hehe) but I finally found it after remembering so hard the street around Baciro (anw, Baciro is soooooo lovely place. I can find a lot of ancient home, with dutch-Europe styled there) - well, back to the track. After I found Lir, we were directly grab the book menu which is veeerrryy cute!

This place hasn't change. The feeling.

I was trying to remember this place, the ambiance, the warmness, remembering my first expectation about this place back then. I am so glad come back there again in another occasion, another companion. After decided what breakfast we'd like to eat, Handy finally had his Cheesy Toast and I got my Toad in the Hole. I like my sunny side-up which was hiding at the center of the toast. I love my peach tea, too. I'm not used to had a tea in the morning, but once in a while coupled with warmness surroundings, what would be better. 

 Anyway, Lir is celebrating their 3rd anniversary *well, Happy birthday, Lir!*. There are so many event during this May. One event I'd like to come is Folk Afternoon at the Park.

We spent the rest of the morning by chatting mostly about PECC's Election Day which will be held today on Friday, 16th May 2014. Time had passed so fast, and we finally at the end of our term in PECC. 

Artic Monkey was the theme song at that day, at Lir.

For lunch, we decided something different. We won't eat something Western, cheesy smell, or what-so-ever. We want Indonesia cuisine! With rice so we can fulfilled our tummy. No chicken, no beef, no grill fish, we headed to K.H Ahmad Dahlan Street to find Turkey! Yes we had turkey for lunch!!! Turkey is kind of fowl. The taste must be the same like bird, chicken, or another fowl, but I had no idea about the texture, the smell, and the serving. So, We were on Warung Kalkun (one of the restaurant which is serve Turkey as the main menu with Indonesian style) I was craving for Rica-rica so I ordered it one portion and Handy ordered his grill Turkey breast-slices. Short story, I LOVE TURKEY! I love Turkey on their Rica-Rica! The spices weren't too kill my tongue, just under control. The place might not too convince. I even almost passed that place when we were through K.H Ahmad Dahlan Street. It is quite small. Warung Kalkun is also open their branch around Jogjakarta. You can simply Google-ed it or find their twitter account on twitter. If you had any occasion to try it someday, don't distract with the price, especially for Legs and Wings. The Price is expensive, indeed but the size it quite enough for 4/5 persons (I had a chance to see the size of the wings, to be honest) I'm gonna come back there again. Promise! x)

Lame photo! taken with my phone camera, less light. Sorry! I hope you guys have a view about Turkey dish hihihi

At the end of the day, (with the sleepy-headed boy called Handy) we stopped by to Serafin Coffee and Patisserie at Pakuningratan Street for having crème brûlée. There are so many patisserie places in Jogja which is serve crème brûlée, but one which reachable from house is Serafin. I got the crack caramel-torched on my crème brûlée. Serafin is history of my life because, that was my very firssssttt Crème brûlée hehehehe. The place quite festive. White, charm, warm, ancient - what I love!

Makan ini sampai merem-merem. You know what does it mean?
