    Top 7 Facts about me

    1. I had twin sisters. Both passed away before I got to know them. My parents never visited their graves because of Javanese/Chinese belief – you are not allowed to do so until you have grandchildren, something like that. All of my younger sisters and I were forbidden to visit our eldest sisters’ graves as [&hellip...

    Pencapaian Tertinggi dalam Hidupku

    Pertanyaan klise? Secara pendidikan, aku berhasil dengan usaha sendiri 100% masuk ke National University of Singapore di zaman aku belum kenal email, dan mahasiswa internasional cuma 2%. Selama kuliah, aku sempat meraih Dean’s List (top 2% fakultas Science) padahal jurusanku Matematika, sebenarnya aku merasa salah pilih. Selama kuliah, aku sudah menghasilkan $$ sendiri dari menerjemahkan, [&hellip...

Aku berharap akan selalu bisa membaca lagi kapan saja semua yang pernah aku tulis di sini, merenung, meditasi, dan kontemplasi. Karena blog ini [&hellip...

    Alasan Mulai Ngeblog

    Menulis itu semacam terapi untukku. Menuangkan isi pikiran, pensieve ala Dumbledore yang penuh. Apalagi kalau lagi malas ngomong. Sometimes I express myself better in writing. Menulis itu juga untuk keabadian, kata Pramoedya yang bukunya malah belum kubaca. Somebody, put these Pramoedya books in my birthday gifts? Pertama kali ngeblog itu tahun 2003? Disuruh teman-teman cowok [&hellip...

    Arti Nama Blog Ini

    Ceritanya itu tahun 2012 aku dikomplain Editor Senior di salah satu penerbit, kok nge-blog-nya di mana-mana, tidak organized, ngumpul di satu tempat. Well, he was right. I used to own several blogspots, multiply, friendster blog (semua sudah almarhum). Tergantung mood, pengin nulis di mana, pengin nulis apa. 2012 was a hectic year for me personally [&hellip...

    LOL

    It was network problem. He has reported it. Phew. Finally he replied my email! But by all seriousness, I should draft a proper email and told him what I want to say – although they are not big things and perhaps really trivia – the things I should have told Suhu Gede or even Pak [&hellip...

    I can’t sleep

    Normally, his advice would be sleep it over. But I just can’t and I don’t know what to think. My body is physically burning, tired. I have lost another older friend suddenly in 2020. Perhaps it was his cardiac. Perhaps he was a victim of high money conspiracy due to his new profession. He was [&hellip...

    Baked Pasta

    Sejak beli oven, I have so many resep bule yang ingin dicoba. Oven listrik panasnya tidak merata dan tarikan listriknya kalah jauh sama listrik LN. Jadi cooking time di oven listrik Indonesia beda dengan LN. Manasi oven di LN 5-10 menit, di Indonesia 15-20 menit untuk mencapai suhu yang sama. Sama seperti ketel listrik. Di [&hellip...
