Jokowi and me

Perhaps this moment is one of many best moment happens in this 2016. My lucky moment. I am very lucky to have the opportunity to shake hand and take a picture together with President of Indonesia on Sunday, November 20th, 2016 at Pondok Indah Mall, Jakarta. Yes, it happens at the famous shopping mall in South Jakarta. He just visited Gramedia book store. When he walked outside the bookstore many people are waiting outside and for sure asking to shake hand and take a photo. I was just standing and waiting nearby and actually not expecting to take a photo because there are many Secret Service members make a barricade and not allowed people blocking the way. So I just take a photo from my smartphone. And he was getting near me.

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.

SDN Grudo 3, Ngawi


Di sekolah ini saya belajar, dididik dan mencari ilmu. Selama 6 tahun saya menempuh pendidikan dasar disini. Dulu kelas saya belum ada jendela kaca, masih tembok dengan lubang angin-angin dibagian atas. Belum juga berlantai keramik. Dari rumah pun hanya perlu berjalan kaki karena saking dekatnya. Namun apalah arti fasilitas tanpa niat. 

Orang dulu mengenalnya sebagai SD Inpres, mungkin memang dibangun atas Instruksi Presiden dalam rangka penyebaran pendidikan sebelum tahun 1980-an. Lulus dari SD Negeri Grudo 3 ini tahun 1989, 27 tahun yang lalu. 

Mumpung mudik, maen ke halaman sekolah dan mencoba merekam kenangan yang mungkin sudah terlupa. Ah, time flies so fast….

Alhamdulillahirobbilalamin…

Perjalanan kami ke Paris dari tanggal 28 Juni 2016 dan kembali ke tanah air pada tanggal 15 Juli 2016 bisa jadi merupakan perjalanan yang diberkahi atau paling tidak bisa dianggap sebagai keberuntungan bagi kami. Dan kami sungguh bersyukur. Banyak peristiwa yang terjadi dan merupakan peristiwa yang menjadi headline pemberitaan.
