New Year's gift

It was a long day for me. I felt exhausted so before I slept last night, I gave my deep sigh. I  also felt my strength released over my body and I was surrounded by my weakness. I felt low and finally let all my worry go while I slept. Well, it is not really big issue though, just something come up in my mind, something like what if, how can, etc.

The good news now is that I am happy to tell you how happy I am now. After releasing a deep sigh last night, I forgot everything and fallen into a deep sleep quickly. Guess what? I had a dream about my  cool grandfather. I want to write that because the feeling was like he is visiting me and comforting me. Also, I am felling supported by the fact that he came by wearing  his blue western-style shirt and Nagekeo"s sarong plus a laptop bag in the back. That was cool.
He looked so fresh like a young man as wise as before.

I don't know what we  were  talking about  but as we sat together in a restaurant table.  I told him what is my lif…

Floating Market versi Lembang

Beberapa hari lalu, saya dan teman-teman berkunjung ke Floating Marketnya Bandung. Berbeda dari tempat wisata  yang kami kunjungi, Floating Market benar-benar tempat wisata yang bersih, rapi, aman dan nyaman. Mengapa demikian? Soalnya saya menemui taman-taman mini yang cantik juga kerja yang baik dari seluruh staf FM yang langsung  tanggap bersih-bersih setelah ada yang meninggalkan sampah. Sebenarnya sayang juga, bukan karena kesadaran pengunjung tapi karena pekerjanya yang siap sedia. 
Selain itu, di FM, kamu tidak menemui penjual-penjual yang menjajakan dagangannya di sembarang tempat, atau memaksa kamu buat beli dagangan atau memanggil-manggil menjajakan makanannya. Di FM, semua terkondisikan, sehingga pembeli dan penjual nyaman. Oh ya, konsep FM ini jangan kamu bayangkan, kalau kamu ikut bertransaksi di atas perahu. Kamu di pinggir saja, sedangkan penjaja makanan menjajakan makanan di atas perahu (bukan perahu sih)  di pinggir danau buatan. Makanan yang dijual biasanya bukan mak…

Good Holiday

I didn't prepare my holiday at the beginning. My friend asked me and my answer was Jakarta and Bogor while honestly it is not my favorite place. I may go there just one day or two to get rid my boredom. Well, sorry for those who longing for long holiday, I have almost 20 days of day off from school and I have no itinerary.

Travelling generally means to me if I am not just travel around, but at least I participate in something like conference, relatives wedding or seminars.

Last night I searched about the possibility of getting summer school scholarship anticipating my next summer holiday. I checked my previous and found one email from my Malaysian friend about one international training in peace in Pati Semarang. I checked the dates, and the good news is I am available on that day.At first, I was disappoint because the registration was closed since November. However I tried to email them and got the good news today. I can participate on the training in 4-9 January 2016.  I have my…

Book Review: How to stop Worrying and Start Living

I would like to start this review by mentioning why I chose this book instead  of other fun materials. Let me guess that you may think of how stressed I am to read this kind of book. Even myself had thought that it must be really depressed person to have interest in it. Well, the reason behind it that it was for the English learning purpose. I committed to buy one of English book and at the time there it was. Well, let me review it for you.

Actually this is  an old books and it is quite popular,  wrote with love and passion by the famous Dale Carnegie.  As it well written in the title, the writer wants to give advice to the reader about how to overcome the worry that you may face in your real life. If you are a businessman or who just want to start with it, this is a good book.  
Honestly to me, this book is like well written diary. Every chapter of this book begins with such  a real story that you can easily imagine it. Before explaining the "how" things, the writer wants …

Merry Christmas

What a week! Paris bombed, a die to early of student

Writing is  a continuous process and look how I commit to do it, a  post for one month?? that is terrible. What on earth I am doing! I am not so busy, though. Well, move on! this month I should post more to have better  accumulative number than last year. It means that I have to post more than 8 posts at minimum to get the good record for myself. 

Last week was sad, heard a really sad news about Paris bombed. My  heart and prayers  are  with the victims. I can not imagine how people were excited to enjoy the concert with the light heart and then they had to face the end of their life at sudden. This is a big crime in human right, men are getting cruel day by day.

 To adding some problem to that, I have to add more with the suicide of a young boy of Junior High School near my home. I think the local government should have more concern about this case. I don't know what come in this young boy to commit suicide while that would be a lot to see in this still very beautiful world.   Fa…

Random Soal Cinta

Hi good people,

Semoga semua hal selalu baik adanya sesuai restu Tuhan dan kebahagiaan kita. Mari bersyukur untuk seminggu kemarin yang telah kita lewati. Banyak up dan down, tapi percayalah banyak yang mencintai kita dengan sungguh- sungguh. Ada keluarga kita yang meski jauh, selalu membawa kita dalam doa di tiap hari mereka memulai hari. Mari kita selalu bersyukur untuk itu.



Bahkan mungkin ada teman dekat yang selalu mendoakan kita diam-diam. Mendoakan kebahagiaan orang lain adalah hal yang baik, apalagi orang yang kita sukai. Isi doanya sih, tidak macam-macam, mana bisa kita mendoakan agar  dia balik menyukai kita.
Kita sungguh tidak bisa memaksa seseorang untuk menyukai kita. Mendoakan agar dia selalu dalam damai, sehat dan bahagia sudah bikin kita bahagia.  Kemudian, kita bisa mempersiapkan diri untuk kehidupan kita ke depannya, menjadi lebih baik, lebih bijak,lebih damai,  lebih rendah hati dan lebih bahagia sampai ada saatnya orang yang tepat datang pada saat yang tepat.

Saya

Hola,

Saya, Rosa. 
Saya suka sekali tidur dan bermimpi. Suka diajar dan mengajar. Menikmati puisi, pagi dan senja. Suka pengalaman "ahaaa". Makin tua, pengalaman ahaaa-nya semakin banyak. 



Dan suka kamu-kamu yang positif, jujur dan humoris.

Tulisan-tulisan di blog ini adalah rangkaian cerita hidup, pemikiran, pengalaman yang sayang kalau tidak dituliskan.

Kadang post di sini dipakai untuk belajar Bahasa Inggris, self writing assignments. 



Tertawa

Mari menertawakan ketidakistimewaan
mari menertawakan ketidaktahuan
mari menertawakan kebodohan
mari menertawakan kesenjangan
mari menertawakan perbedaan
mari menertawakan kebutaan
mari menertawakan kekeliruan
mari menertawakan ketidakberdayaan
mari menertawakan penolakan
mari menertawakan ketegaran
mari menertawakan kelemahan
mari menertawakan kesakitan
mari menertawakan kesenjangan
itulah cara Tuhan memberi tahu
bahagia yang sederhana

and the universe will laugh with you...



(Kita)

Rasanya seperti sudah lama kenal
Jika diam adalah hal yang paling indah
Untuk dinikmati bersama
Mengecap pikiran masing-masing
Duduk dalam angin sepoi
Siang sedang teriknya
Tetapi kita teduh(September,2015,mengenang kita)

Trip to Situ Cileunca & Malabar tea garden

Well, hi good people...
Happy weekend! Last week was the best. We went to Pengalengan Bandung, enjoyed our togetherness and had a bunch of beautiful moments. Oh well, I have to introduce my good and crazy classmates here. We will be a team for the next two years and until the rest of our life. Finally,I saw and enjoyed the tea garden there. Also, the nice sun rise in the lake that we found accidentally. Pengalengan is about 2 hours from Bandung to the south. You have to go there by car or motorcycle because there is not public transportation(Sorry,I am not really sure about this). You can visit Situ Ciluenca and Malabar tea garden. Also have #igabakar for your lunch.It was around 35K and worth it. All the photos here are not mine. It taken from ig @liaryanti,'s phone, @bimastyaji  and our cool photographer's @didiguci (ig). Please contact personally for capturing your joyful events and also find him in https://ranselkubutut.wordpress.com/2015/09/19/no-day-without-laugh/ Had…

Friend's Roles

The good thing to be a listener is that you learn new things. Those are things that you are inexperienced. You'll imagine and take a whole story as yours. As you listen, you try to enter the scene and choose to be an actor. The story is not yours but you'll try to answer all the questions which are given to you. Even, you are not giving a clear answer or your answer is complicated.  It's interesting and that is what relationship really is, to share, to give, to care, to help, to be there with someone who trusts you and accepts who you are. 

Kebun Binatang Gembira Loka

Libur telah tiba! Libur telah tiba!

Nah, sahabat blogger sekalian, anda dan keluarga pasti sedang senang-senangnya menyambut liburan Lebaran yang sekarang ini sudah dimulai. Saya mengucapkan selamat puasa bagi teman-teman yang menjalankan, semoga berkah di bulan Ramadhan ini semakin bertambah.

Menyambut liburan tentu akan sangat menyenangkan untuk membawa anak, keponakan, atau adik-adik kita ke tempat wisata. Banyak pilihan lokasi wisata yang bisa kita datangi di Yogyakarta. Jika anda menimbang lokasi, transport, budget dan jenis wisata yang bermanfaat dan meng"edukasi", kebun binatang Gembira Loka bisa menjadi wisata yang menyenangkan untuk anak anda.

Beberapa waktu lalu, saya dan teman-teman kelas mengunjugi salah satu tempat wisata di kota Yogyakarta,yakni kebun binatang "Gembira Loka". Kunjungan ke sana sebenarnya agak miris bagi saya, karena melihat kebahagiaan binatang-binatang itu (kebebasan) sudah diambil dan melihat mereka kurus-kurus kurang terawat. Namun…

Hi sweet July!

Hi July, a sweet start.
I think I am ready for a really fresh new month ahead. Looking back to the past few months, I can say that I have emotionally reached a new phase of life. There were many scenes that I have consciously and unconsciously experienced. Some were actually new, some were routines and the others were "Aha" moments that enlightened my days.


I have to be really careful with my heart and also my mind. It is now in a kind of sensitive phase which I, myself can not strongly control it. However, I do believe in the powerful of mind which it is said that you can control everything with the powerful mind of yours. Frankly speaking, even your orgasm is contributed by your great mind. Your mind is your king.Then, I am aware that I can gently handle my soft heart in the right way.
Though, I have some good improvement in one thing, one I should carefully consider is my tongue. Sometimes, I sounds "bitchy". I am not proud of that. I want an improvement.

The way to graduate school

Hi bloggers,

Now I am on my way back to Yogyakarta from Bandung taking Kahuripan
train . I just had my interview & major tests, also the TPA Bappenas
test.

#Sigh

How was the test? I didn't do it well. My time management was poor at
the 2nd type test of TPA. The figurial test was also annoying for me.
Hopefully, I can make it to pass the university's requirement. I have
to prepare for the worst registering for 2nd chance of TPA,I guess.

The Environmental Engineering test and the interview test were quite
so so. At least, the interviewers let me answer all questions happily.
The worst part was about my carbon-chain grade.


#BigGrin


I have one conditional letter too from Wolonggong university but the
major is Chemistry not the Environmental Science which I had chosen in
the first place. Well, I hope things will go right as God had planned
for me.

However, there was a good event happen this week which it was
enlightening my mood. Guess what? My very close frie…

Tips menghadapi tes TOEFL

Berikut tips dan trick dalam mempersiapkan diri menghadapi tes TOEFL
yang bisa saya bagi ke teman-teman. Sumbernya dari pengalaman pribadi
dan beberapa teman. Semoga berhasil mencapai standar minimal skor
500-550(untuk ujian masuk pasca sarjana atau tes dosen dan PNS serta
beasiswa :-D).



1.Biasakan mengerjakan soal-soal TOEFL 1 bulan sebelum tes. Banyak
sekali sumber yang bisa teman-teman download di internet. Longman &
Baron TOEFL preparation bisa menjadi sumber yang bagus.

2.Pelajari kembali konsep noun, verb, adverb, adjective dan tenses
karena pada soal "structure" banyak sekali soal subject-verb
agreement. Jika kita sudah paham konsep, kita akan dengan mudah
menandai kata yang salah walaupun kalimatnya panjang.

3.Nah bagaimana cara agar kita bisa mengingat dengan baik konsep yang
sudah kita pelajari. Pergunakanlah dalam kalimat sehari-hari dengan
menuliskannya kembali. Walaupun untuk TOEFL ITP tidak membutuhkan
"writing" dengan menulis kita…

Menjadi besar-sebuah puisi

Hujan masih tanpa bau tanah
Dan ia rindu pada pulang
memeluk ibu dan hangatnya
masih dengan ingatan dimandikan air hangat
sebelum sekolah

Di balik kaca dan sinar matahari satu-satu
Ada wajah bapak di sana
Mungkin rambutnya sudah memutih
dan kakinya mulai lelah
Ia tertawa kecil, mengenang bapak
Ia masih digendng hingga sembilan tahun

Kamu sudah besar nak, sudah besar, sudah besar

Adalah rindu kepada ibu ketika tangan mengusap ubun-ubun di tiap malam
Aku masih seperti lima tahun
bersembunyi di balik punggungmu

Adalah rindu kepada bapak ketika tak seorang pun mendengarmu dengan diam
Dia selalu tanpa menyela dan membiar mimpi itu jadi tinggi

Ah, kamu sudah besar nak!

People Around

Life is so damn pretty when we share laugh together with friends who
see us as the way we are. Sometimes we don't need to try to make fake
joke, just . simple smile, nod or even a silent word.

I have realized so far that I have met really good people around. They
have come & gone for a reason in my life. Each of them has brought
something that I can learn. Some stays still, while others don't.

As a friend, I am sad to say that I am not a really good one. I am not
good to keep friends around with me. I am not good in asking "whats
up" thing regularly or to really know all little things which has
happened in my friends' life.Although I have my handphone with me, I
rarely use it to send a message.
Even for my family members. Not because I have forgoten them, I just
love to see them when I see & talk to them directly. I'd love to have
deep communication when I see them. That'
s what an introvert wants, a real conversation.

Note :

How to be great every single day

It's so lovely to send a love to yourself everytime you get up. Slowly
breathtaking bring you up to feel grateful for your beautiful life.
It's beautiful in its imperfection. An early smile will last entire
day. A prayer for those you love is always a nice gift for each of
them.

Just mind your business and tell your story but be a good listener to
friends.Keep in mind that it's not your story to tell. Be a nice
company to your friend.

Why?

I don 't know why
I don't know when
I just know that I enjoy every minutes
I just know that we share things together

For one reason, I just want to be born again
I want to be "nude" from all those things we called races, religions,
nationality and so on
I want to be free from all streotypes
I want to be a "real" human that see you as you are, your thought,
your sparkling eyes, your companies

Who am I?
Just a silly girl in this huge world
I can do nothing
All I know is I don't know how to stop this kind of feeling
though I say I am trying..

I know we can't choose with whom we fallin'
and as wise words I've heard before,
just enjoy and let it be as it is.





#PK27 Jogjakarta Prasetya Mandala

What news?

Hi readers, How about your day? Today is my last day in the office. It’s quite sad because I love the working environment; work with good & great teammates and manager. I am having good time there.
Another good new is, my first trip to Jogja will be in this weekend. How come? During my temporary stay in Java Island, I haven’t landed my feet in such warm land for most of students in Indonesia. The trip will be memorable for me because I will meet and greet good new friends of mine from Indonesia with the diverse in each of them. We have trusted each other to make the Leadership camp will last forever in our mind.
We do really hope the best for the all the events that the team have arranged. Good luck for PK LPDP batch 27! 

Mempertanyakan Hukuman Mati

Pada saat ini saya seharusnya masih berkutat dengan tugas-tugas #PKLPDP27 ,namun saya masih menaruh hati dan pikiran saya pada saudara-saudara yang dieksekusi mati. Saya masih #greget untuk mencurahkan kegelisahan saya ini, setelah mendengar dan membaca mengenai eksekusi mati beberapa orang pengedar narkoba.

Saya bukan seorang ahli hukum yang ingin memperdebatkan  & menilai prosedur eksekusi mati dari segi hukum. Saya hanya warga sipil biasa yang hanya tahu bahwa hukum itu adalah rangkaian kesepakatan-kesepakatan yang dibuat oleh manusia untuk menegakan keadilan. Hukum pun dalam perjalanannya harus disesuaikan dan digubah sesuai situasi dan kondisi pada periode tertentu karena ilmu pengetahuan, wawasan dan pemahaman, sosial budaya dan ekonomi politik suatu bangsa berkembang dalam tatanan waktu tersebut. (IMHO & *IMLK)

Hak untuk mengeksekusi

 Di atas semua hal nafas hidup manusia dan keberadaan manusia itu dengan kelebihan dan kekurangannya adalah makhluk paling indah dan paling…
