 Since my mom always complain that I seldom to cook, I decided to join the cooking class in the last minutes after thousands of consideration.


The cooking class held by my running buddies from Bogor Runner. They invited one of member who works as a chef, Kang Assegaf, a chef from five stars hotel in Jakarta, Mandarin  Hotel.





The cooking class was great. I learned the basic of techniques of cooking such as cutting, slicing, chopping which had a secret technique to do it. Well, I never knew it before, so I'm so enthusiastic and it was motivated me to try something new such as cut the fish and cut chicken..honestly it was the first experience for me. Can you believe it? As a girl, the rest  of my life, it was the first time at 24 years old,  the age that you should do it better. Hoho






Overall, the cooking class inspired me to practice on my own at home. And Voila, this is my creation!


 I know its still far from perfect such as the chicken not juicy, the slice of chicken and fish still  too thick, the flour of fish still not perfect from crispy, and some of the was to salt, Oh noo. However I enjoyed making special dishes for my beloved family.

Di setiap sesi sketsa bersama Bogor Sketcher, selalu saja ada cerita yang menarik. Dan kali ini ada cerita lucu yang ingin aku ceritakan. Ketika aku lagi duduk bersketsa di bangku sisi danau, ada dua orang mas kisaran umur 20an dan seorang temannya. Tiba2, salah satu dari mas itu berfoto narsis di lokasi dekat aku bersketsa. Setelah puas, dia menyapa dan bilang,

Mas1: " Lagi ngelukis ya mba?"
Aku: iya mas.” (sambil tersenyum)

Terus dia pergi sama temennya, tapi sebelum pergi sekilas
aku liat dia maenin Hp ke arah aku, entah apa yang fotoin, entah aku yang lagi gambar, atau foto selfie narsis , haha, entahlah ga jelas dan ga peduli juga. Akhirnya pergilah mereka berdua, dan aku masih serius bersketsa tentunya. Sekitar 20menit kemudian si mas2 itu balik lagi sambil sok2 berfoto gitu d. Terus sekilas aku ngeliat dia, dan tiba-tiba dia bilang sesuatu.

Mas2:”Mba, boleh minta tolong ga, khan saya mau difoto nih nanti, terus mba pura2nya lagi ngelukisin saya ya, mau, gimana mba, mau ga mba?"
Me: dian sesaat, no respon, Ya ampyuuun XDXD (dalam hati), “Oh, ceritanya pura2 aja khan ya mas, oke d.”

Terus dia berfoto sok narsis
. Selama dia foto aku gak berekpresi sama sekali , tetep bergaya melukis wajar apa adanya sambil nahan ketawa sambil komat-kamit dalam hati ( ya ampyuun ni orang narsis banget d yaaa XDXD)
Terus pas selesai dia nanya hasilnya ke temennya

Mas1: “Coba gua liat hasilnya. Wihh pas banget,, makasih ya, mba`”
Me: “Sama-sama.” (dengan muka datar)


Fiuuhhh, ada-ada aja ya kelakuan cowo zaman sekarang. Nih cowo pasti langsung update di medsos terus bergaya macam2 ga kebayang d yas medsosnya kayak apa, hihihi

Selain kisah lucu yang pertama, ada pula kisah menarik yang kedua, antara percakapan aku dan mas Kiki (MK)

MK: “Hi, Emi, mana cowonya ko ga diajak?”
Me: “Gal ah, Mas, dia khan gak suka nyeket.”
MK: “Cuma cowo aneh yang ga suka nyeket.”
Me: “ Hihi, Ga gitu juga kali, Mas.”

Akhirnya setelah jalan bareng, kita menemukan spot pertama, terjadilah percakapan sesi kedua.

MK:” BTW, lo udah ada cowo, Mi?”
Me:” BELOOMMM, Mas, gua belum punya cowo!” (Dengan muka  patut dikasihani)
MK: “ Kasian banget sih lu mi, hahaha. Kebanyakan lari sih lu, masa sering lari ga ada satu pun yang nyangkut sih, hahaha.”
Me: “ Au ah, cowo2 lari mah entahlah, hahaha.”
MK: “ Haha pada melarikan diri dari kenyataan, ya?”
Me: “Whoaa, kok lo tau sih, mas?”
MK: “Gua pernah muda kale,,”
Me:” Hmmm… (menatap dengan pandangan curiga) Oke, deh mas, gua percaya, wahahaha.”

Berhubung tempat sketsanya panas, dan gak dapet objek yang sesuai, akhirnya kita berpindah ke tempat sketsa yang lain, spot kedua yang kebetulan satu lokasi dengan salah satu pelukis senior Pak Husnawi dan Istrinya. Dan terjadilah percakapan sesi ketiga.



MK: “Mi, ajarin gua bahasa Inggris dong, Bahasa Inggris lu kan jago!”
Me: “ Hahaha, boleh-boleh, tapi barteran dong, lo ajarin apa ke gua, mas, hahah?”
MK: “ Gua ajarin lo bahasa Cinta d, bahasa Cinta lo khan payah banget!”
Me: “ Whoaaa, parah banget sih lw, mas Kiki.”

Hmm, setelah percakapan itu gua langsung mikir dua kali. Mungkin memang bener juga kali y. Hmm, entahlah tapi gua ngerasa setelah beberapa kejadian yang terjadi semakin gua bingung harus kayak gimana kalau berhadapan dengan cowo. Hmm, someone please teach me Love Lesson, Pleaseee!!

Yoga

Hello everyone, now I want to share my experience of Yoga. May be I have never mentioned it before in social media or anything else. However the fact is I already did yoga exercise since I was in high school. The purpose I did that to lose weight since I was fat at that time. I did it almost a year by myself, but it was stopped because of the hectic in my routine life, so I couldn’t find the right time to do it. From that time I know some basic skill and poses of yoga. It was fun and excited in every time I could follow the movement even it’s kind of simple one. 

Time after time I forget about the exercise, sometimes I did it once in a while when I was in college even though I thought the exercise wasn’t effective to lose weight since the movement is too slow and it need long process to achieve it. So, I prefer cardio sport such as running and swimming to achieve it and it worked since 2012.

However, I began to realize that I running, swimming, or any kind of cardio sports is not enough to get balance in life ( based on my  point of view), so I need some exercise who will improve not only physically, but also mentally and spiritually. Once I thought about it, once I got the answer. Finally, a parents offer the teachers yoga class. They are Ibu Lisa, Ibu Sam, Ibu Nadine, and next Ibu Tasya since last year, 2015. 

I was so enthusiastic to join the program as I love yoga and wanted to restart the practice.  Even my yoga still in basic, still reach the physical purpose, not mental and spiritual yet, my body flexibility has improved more and more. Now I can do some poses which I couldn’t do before, such as head stand with the wall, table pose, tree pose, sun salutation, ect. I still struggle to do hand stand, head stand, tenggala pose, reach hand to feet, and many other poses.


I was so happy that at the same time my running buddy do yoga too, Mba Mprit. She likes to take her Yoga pose in action. It’s cool! It’s inspired me to do the same thing. So, if I go somewhere to outdoor place, I like to take my pic of yoga pose. Are you so curious about it? Here some poses, I hope you enjoy it!

Last week, I had looong weekend and I went to Gunung Pancar with my college friends, Ori and Nai. It has been long time that we had never seen each other, the last time wast November, 2015, in the other words, it almost a half year we had never seen each other. I miss them so much.

For the holiday, we planned to go to National Flower Park in Cipanas, but after some considerations as we know it was long holiday, so it would be terrible plan if we kept continuing the plan. As a plan B, I gave them another alternative idea to go to Gunung Pancar.

Ori, one of my  friend was so excited as she organized the idea to make a photo shoot when we got there. She prepared all the properties which needed such as, balloon, lunch mattress, hat, ect. In the other hand, Naili brought some foods and also some clothes and pairs of shoes just for photo session.  Cool! How about me? Well, I just bring my documentation stuff such as DSLR camera, pocket camera, Selfie stick, and my cell-phone, and of course brought my own self. Hohoho


I had a great time with them, spent quality time. I enjoyed all the silly and funny stuffs we did together, made me forget about all problems and the other annoying things which stuck in my head. Things what we have done just laughed, took some picture we wanted, for example, between the tree rows pose, yoga pose, on the stone pose, picnic style, and ect. Thanks girls. Hope we can do another adventure to Onrust and take another photo-shoot. I don’t know why, but since that time I really like to learn about photography. That’s my hidden desire I kept for so long, and it have shown recently. It was great if we can well-documented our travelling moment since the moment never come back twice.

Can you find any similarity between me and her, Dian Pelangi! She is the famous hijab entrepreneur. Hoho. Hmm, let me guess? I think you wondering why I have that inspiration to collage those two pictures. Okay, let me explain! One day, it was long time ago when I came to my cousin’s wedding, one of my cousin told me that I looked a like Dian Pelangi. I just smiled, and didn’t much comment on that while my mind kept imagine why it could be happened since I couldn’t fine any things in common between us. Well, I admire Dian Pelangi and her success career. Wish I can be a successful entrepreneur like her. So, that’s the background story.


One day, when I went home from my friend’s wedding, I took some selfie pose, I took alot of pictures and it made me forget about everything as always. When I saw the result of the pics, I remembered one of Dian Pelangi pic with white hijab. And Yupp, I found it, cool!!! I love the picture and I think its kinda a perfect collage. hhohoho

Once in the blue moon, without any expectation, without any sign of anything would happened, that day, Monday, 090516, so many reporters from some TV stations came to my school. There were approximately more than ten reporters if I’m not mistaken. They tried to find the information the only one special needs student who did national exam.

 I was so surprised and speechless and didn’t know what to do when they asked me some questions about the preparation and how’s the exam run that day. It’s kind of silly things when I see my own face which shown by my friend, Sadam who also reporter in private online media. He showed me some links, pictures, and video related that news. XDXDXD

I can’t comment more on this but it was my first experience had been interviewed by the reporters. I hope I can be a famous person one day in good way.

Self-introspection

Hello I come back! Yeay, do you miss me??

May be you’d think that I have gone with the wind, hide somewhere else in an isolated island, and just disappear. Hmm,, may be you’re right, I can’t deny it. The undeniable fact is I just do something to finish all stuffs I have to be completed. Unconditional LOA and Scholarship are stuffs I’ve struggled for. Stuffs which always stuck forever in my mind since in the beginning of this year, stuffs which I always want to be truth for the rest of my life. So, what should I do to make the real? Actually, I almost done the requirements, except IELTS. I did IELTS test last month, and I got 6.0, and it still less 0.5 from the requirement for LOA ad scholarship, LPDP. Fortunately, I still use this score for Australia Awards. To apply AIA, it’s enough using IELTS band 5.5, Unless, I didn’t stuck and did nothing, I did something to move on, continue my journey, step by step to achieve my target this year, study Master Degree program in Queensland, Australia and Alhamdulillah I already submitted the application, best luck for me! J



My dream journey still continued, after I finished AIA, I need to struggle with next IELTS exam, prepare document for LPDP, and apply to get LOA. I know that stages are not easy and it need process to accomplish it. Sometimes I find the hard time when I deal with all of this, deal with my own negative ego state, the side of me who always showed pessimistic, I have to fight with myself, proof them that I can do the unthinkable things. I often sacrifice my time not to spend time in social event with my friend, seldom has interaction and conversation with my family because I’m too busy with my own business, i also can’t think another stuff except my application, therefore I can’t concentrate well in my work, seldom exercise, keep healthy life style, and the most annoying things I easily get frustrated, worried, angry, and ect. I often do something in rush, I forget about everything, and I don’t care about anything. Sometimes, I felt that I’m the loneliest person in the world. I don’t have any friends that I can trust. Sometimes I just wanna cry so badly, why these things must happened to me? why it feel so hard?

I realized is not good for me, physically, mentally and emotionally. I need to have a good self-management, how to lead my life in balance one. We need balance in life, we need achievement, relation, health, spiritual, love to complete my life



We need to be always stay in positive line. Now, I totally understand that to achieved one dream, we need not only hard work, focus, but we also need smart strategies to find mental and social support to make the process easier than we expect.







Keep positive, do smart strategies to balance our life.

You can do it, Emi!!!!!!!!!!

Ketika jarak dan waktu akan selalu mendekatkan dan menyatukan keinginan dua hati yang selalu ingin bersama.

Tak peduli berapa jauhnya, tak peduli perbedaan masa yang terjadi,  semesta akan selalu memberikan petunjuk hingga akhirnya mereka bisa bersama.

Menembus ruang dan waktu, menghancurkan.segala tembok pembatas demi mengarungi kehidupan bersama dengan satu.tujuan yang mulia, mendekatkan diri kepada sang pencipta.

Semoga Tuhan selalu mempermudah jalannya, dan memberikan setiap petunjuk sehingga suatu hari aku dipertemukan dengannya, orang yang akan membimbing kehidupanku d masa depan kelak.

Aku mungkin tidak pernah tau seberapa dekat dan seberapa jauh keberadaannya sekarang, aku pun tidak pernah tahu apakah aku  pernah mengenalnya sebelumnya. Tapi aku selalu yakin, di saat yang tepat, semua akan menjadi cerita yang indah.

My expression of IELTS

Some expression of  me and sleepy eyes as I only sleep 5 hours because of  IELTS exam preparation. I usually wake up at 2:00 to study IELTS in an hour and sleep again at 04:00 and wake up again at 05:30 and go to office at 06:30.  I finish work at 03:30 and arrive at home at 04:30. At home, some activities I do are housing stuffs, cleaning stuff such as, wiping, ironing, washing my clothes, eat, and take a bath.  If I have extra time and mood, I spend my pleasure time to relax, watching movie, reading, yoga, until 07:30. Finally from 07:30 pm or 08:30 I study IELTS at least 1,5-3 hours its depends on time that I did before in the  morning. Overall I spend at least 3 hours to learn IELTS.

Honestly, it was so tiring to learn IELTS, I felt nervous if I have to learn, especially in reading, writing, and whole session of IELTS test in the weekend  and sometimes I meet boredom in study IELTS. However, I begin to enjoy it as I find some useful tips which easy to apply and make it fun and easer to study it both from book and internet. I’m so happy to live in this modern era which we can get many learning resources from the internet. Things that we must have is just strong desire!

Firstly,  I found difficulties in reading, I used to extremely  worry in every time I saw reading text, we need a lot of practices and tricks especially in manage our time which the most stressful one because of time pressure.  But, after I discover some IELTS reading tips from e-book, websites, and you tube, I begin to love reading section since we will gain a lot useful information which really good to improve our knowledge. I also love reading section because we don’t need to read and understand all the text, just scans the main idea, finds some key words in the question and text, such as, place, time, name of people, and vocabulary. It is easier to do that, trust me!

Secondly, in listeningsome activities that I’ve done to improve my Listening skill are watching movie, video on You Tube and BBC, listen carefully of the native teachers and students at school. The most useful website that I like to improve is EXAMLAB by Randall. It is good website which designed to improve English skill in general. For listening, this website provide both audio and video which we can use for practice. In addition, the level of audio are vary from easy to difficult one. Honestly, I still listen to the easy level, however since I learn from that as it affect my Listening IELTS section. I feel so happy and confident about it.

Thirdly, for speaking, I still need more exercise since tend to nervous and it affect to my ability in answering question, especially in answer my question in good structure. Moreover, I usually to repeat same statement all over and over again, my pronunciation still far from native speaker, still Indonesian accent especially when I said sometime, or words which begin from S and F letters. I also need to apply time pressure in every practice time,  tends to be short minded, can’t find another alternative answer, such as;  try to think spontaneously, and creatively, often stop for a while to think, tends to not finish my sentence in explaining something and  the last mistake is always think in general  doesn’t  give some detail information of my statement. So I need to practice and practice more, practice by myself and practice with all people at school. I love practice speaking since we don’t need a book, just need to record my voice, and it just fun. It just getting better every day. 

Lastly, writing, is one of skill that I need to struggle for, it is still difficult for me especially my writing section 1 to explain the graph, charts,table, bla bla bla and the last is section 2. I just need to organize my outline and make  good high quality  sentences which need to learn more and more vocabularies to achieve it. Some activities that I’ve to Improve it are reading book, writing blog, and memorize new words from my pocket dictionaries.

Okay Emiria. Good Luck for IELTS
