Asian Games 2018, Presiden Jokowi dan Yamaha FZ1

Bangga, takjub dan terharu. Itulah perasaan saya ketika melihat Upacara Pembukaan atau Opening Ceremony Asian Games 2018 pada tanggal 18 Agustus 2018 (atau 18-8-18). Spektakuler. Keindahann, keragaman bangsa yang ber-bhinneka tunggal ika ini dikemas dan disajikan, tidak hanya kepada warga negara Indonesia namun juga ke warga negara global yang melihat acara tersebut. Salut dan apresiasi tertinggi kepada semua pihak yang mempersiapkan dan melaksanakannya. Sehingga bisa menimbulkan kebanggaan dan optimisme bahwa Bangsa Indonesia mampu dan layak mendapat amanah menjadi tuan rumah Asian Games 2018.

Filosofi Turangga

Bagi manusia modern, kendaraan baik yang bermotor ataupun tidak (mobil, sepeda, sepeda motor, kapal, pesawat terbang) bukan hanya berfungsi sebagai alat transportasi, tetapi juga melambangkan status bahkan pencapaian prestasi. Dalam filosofi Jawa, kendaraan ini dilambangkan dengan Turangga. Syahdan ada lima syarat yang harus dimiliki oleh seorang Kesatria Jawa : wisma, wanita, turangga, kukila dan curiga. Atau dalam bahasa Indonesia artinya: WISMA, rumah; WANITA, wanita; TURANGGA, kuda. KUKILA, burung; CURIGA, keris. Maka tidak perlu heran, jika “turangga” sudah menjadi obsesi sejak jaman dahulu kala dan makna “turangga” bagi tiap orang bisa berbeda-beda.

Inktober 2016 from my perspective

Today is November 6, 2016, and it’s been a week after I am finished “inktober2016” event. For you who don’t know about inktober or if you want to know more about “inktober”, please visit this link: www.inktober.com

This event is started by Jake Parker (mrjakeparker.com) and open for everyone to join. Anybody can participate and it’s free. Not only artist, painter, designer or anyone that draw a lot in their everyday life. For a month we asked to draw using ink (it can be a fountain pen, pen, marker), minimal one drawing in one day. That’s why it called “inktober”. You can draw anything. Yes, anything. You can draw people, animal, house, car, pets, objects, character, superhero, airplane, your imagination, etc. If you have no idea what you should draw that day, the initiator of “inktober” has some keyword or theme that you can follow (please check the official Inktober2016 prompt list below). If you enjoy making a digital drawing (using tablet or software), you may join too.
