Welcoming my third winter


Spending my time today writing a "letter". This is also a day that I use to call my parent at home. I have 25 hours today, a day that officially marks the coming of winter.. my third winter in the north. The sun is shining so bright up there, above Stockholm sky. What a lovely day.

"Mimpi adalah kunci untuk kita menaklukkan dunia. Berlarilah tanpa lelah sampai engkau meraihnya... Walau hidup kadang tak adil.. bersyukurlah pada yang Kuasa, cinta kita di dunia".

If you can't get it twice, try the third one


This morning (monday) i tried to call my parent. The connection was too bad, so I could not make that call and stopped at the second try. What I did was also unusual, because i used to call them in sunday afternoon. I could not call them at that sunday afternoon, as I was helping a friend who was moving in to new apartment at that day. 

Later, my sister called me, informing Papa wants me to call him now because they could not reach me from Indonesia. In that call, he said that he was very worry because I called in monday morning, which was very rare for him, and we also could not talk. I explained the reason why I made a call at that time, instead of sunday afternoon, and that the connection was too bad so I could not hear his voice and I decided to stop trying.

Then my father  said, "Next time, if you can't get it twice, try the third one." 

That was one of the million simple times when I was reminded again about how lucky I am. And this also did give me a lesson learned about making a decision, and how every decision that an individual makes, no matter how small it is, would always makes impact. And yes, that was just one of the million simple times in my life that also shows me million simple things to learn.

Welcome my Second Spring

Stockholm has got its beautiful spring since couple weeks ago, and the pink color of cherry blossom flowers in kungsträdgården were just starting to disappear last week. Soon, the summer will come, and the whole country will celebrate their mid-summer, where the sun would be still up there until late at night. I can feel how this mother earth change its face, always beautiful. Here are some of the pictures of that moment..

Satu suara dari Utara

FAST eVote – Tiket suara utk eVote Pilpres tlh dikirim ke myemail@somewhere.com Salam FAST!

Begitu isi pesan yang saya terima saat itu, malam pukul 23.58 waktu swedia. SMS ini bukan SMS biasa. Bukan karena ia berasal dari nomor Indonesia, sesuatu yang sudah sangat jarang saya dapatkan sejak tinggal diperantauan.  Saya sedang berada di kereta saat itu, dalam perjalanan 19 jam, melintas negri skandinavia, jauh menuju sebuah kota kecil di utara, di antara pegunungan dataran tinggi Lapland, lingkar dalam kutup utara.

SMS ini yang saya tunggu-tunggu semenjak siang tadi, atau bahkan sebenarnya sejak berminggu-minggu lalu, karena ia memberi tanda bahwa saya telah bisa memberikan suara untuk memilih the next FAST presiden, Forum Alumni ITTELKOM: Menentukan arah perjalanan organisasi dalam beberapa tahun mendatang.  Sejak beberapa waktu lalu, FAST sudah memulai prosesi pemilihan ini, dari penjaringan calon presiden, kampanye, dan beragam kegiatan lain yang sudah disiapkan jauh-jauh hari oleh rekan-rekan alumni, dan akan mencapai puncak nya dalam musyawarah anggota akhir pekan ini yang juga menjadi momen silaturahim akbar alumni, kembali pulang ke kampus putih biru.

Because The World Is Thirsty

Just this afternoon, I went to the kitchen, felt so hungry and decided to take some of spaghetti I made last night *yep, student's heaven life. That kitchen is a common kitchen, means I share it with the neighbors in the entire corridor, around 9 rooms. One of my neighbors was preparing to leave and cleaning some of his stuffs in the sink.

At the moment when I was heating my spaghetti in the microwave, then I heard the water was kept flow but no sound that it was used. I looked at what my neighbor was doing, and as what I supposed, he was cleaning something, and actually did not use the water at all, except keeping it flow.
