Something I Learn In Life

It has been about 21 years that i spent to live my life. Of course there are so many things happened, and maybe i can say it must be uncountable. But, the point in living a life is not only letting those things which have happened to be just gone that way. We need to learn something. Yeah, there must be so many things that we could learn from what have happened in the past.
When we did right, we learn it, then we should try to keep doing right in the future. When we did wrong, we learn it, then we should try not to repeat the same mistake. 
We can learn something not only from our own lives, but also from others'. Yes, we can also learn from others' lives.
Today, i would write one thing that i have learned so far.
We don't need to brag about ourselves too much to other people, in order to make them know who we are. Especially, when we achieve something that we are so much proud of. From my experience, even though i don't talk about what i've achieved to many people, apparently there are people who know it as the time keeps going on. Even from people that i thought would never be care that much about myself.
I'm grateful for not bragging too much about myself (well, at least i think so about myself, since i've seen so many people who bragged about themselves a lot even in social networking sites) so that i could learn about this thing.

There's no need to brag too much in order to be recognized.


Well, it's only 3 days left before we go on to the next new year. Wow, it's almost 2011 already! Time really flies so fast. A lot of things are waiting ahead of us. Let's give our best to make a better future :)
So, did you get yourself a new year resolution, folks? Me? As usual i never make one. hehehe.

Anyway, i miss my family a lot >,< especially my little brother. huhuhu.

I'm Sad, Dear Muslims..

Yeah it's true that i am sad to see the situations of muslims especially in Indonesia in my country. Not that i'm sad because people treat them bad. Not at all, because nobody have done so (at least in the major area). 
Why am i sad?
There are so many reasons, but maybe i will not talk about them all here. I realize that i haven't been so much religious too. I know sometimes i do wrongs, i know there're still lots of things that i should learn in my own religion, Islam. And the most important thing is that i still have to be able to make myself live my life in a way that my God loves.
The first thing is about wearing Hijab. As we know, wearing Hijab is a MUST for every lady who thinks that herself is a muslim. The commands that coming from our God are written clearly inside the Qur'an.
O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. (Q.S Al-Ahzab; 59)
And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, their brothers' sons, their sisters' sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed. (Q.S An-Nur; 31)
See, i think it's clear enough how important it is for the ladies to wear hijab. I know, me myself, began to wear ones since my 2nd year in high school. I know it wasn't so early as i was already 16 yo at that time. But i guess, it's better than never have the will at all.
So, what makes me sad is not that there're still so many ladies who haven't worn hijab. No, not for that reason. But, it's because nowadays, many of those ladies (in my country) who haven't worn ones start to have a kind of thought about wearing hijab. Ok, starts from a brief condition around ladies and hijab in my country first.
Yes, it's true that recently there are many ladies who have worn hijab but still doing bad things like making out with their boyfriends (we know it's not OK), or any other things which we may judge as bad.
Then, from that fact, ladies who haven't worn hijab have this kind of thought which says "It's better to improve their behaviors first then wearing hijab, rather than wearing hijab first but still acting with bad behaviors."
I, personally don't agree with that kind of thought which i think seems to be like a comparison between two kinds of ladies. Why did i say i don't agree? You don't have too see how others are doing before you decide to wear hijab. Because the basic point is, this is between you and your God. You wear hijab not for everyone around you, but for yourself and also to accomplish what God has asked.
And the one who have right to judge which one is better, is not us. It's not our rights. It's only God who could judge. And what we have to do is try as best as we can to accomplish what God has asked. PERIOD.
I'm not saying this to force anybody to wear hijab. Nooo. I just want it, in some ways, changes the way most ladies thinks about wearing hijab. :)
And i just feel so grateful for having my dad, who kept reminding me on how important it is to wear hijab, and also for having my mom, who gave me a real strong support when i decided to wear hijab. Thanks so much dad and mom. I love you both so much ;)

Well, actually there are still some other reasons that make me sad. But, maybe it's better not to write about those all now. hehehe. 
Why? Actually i just wanted to make my blog as a fun one to read. So, writing too much things around ethnicity, religion, and race may bring different atmosphere to this blog. Don't you think so?

Hemp Lip Protector From The Body Shop :)

Hellooo..Did you have a great friday night or sat night?? I hope you guys did :D
I spent my friday night together with partners from Indonesian Agricultural Sciences Association (IASA) holding a year end seminar. The keynote speech was delivered by a professor from The University of Tokyo who could speak in Indonesian language pretty well.  Besides, there was also a discussion panel with 3 Indonesian students as the speakers. Overall it was success. Many guests came even without registering first. We even ran out of chairs, but we could maintain to get more chairs for the guests. I think, besides those very competent speakers, the free consumption (bakso: Indonesian food) was one thing that attracted people too. But, since there were some enregistered guests, so not everybody got a bowl of bakso (neither did i. hiks)
Then, today i spent the day with Dhilla walking around Shibuya. We went to love first to look for good agendas for next year :) yeah i need to buy it as soon as possible cuz there are lots of plans, appointment, tec which need to be written down there. So, i bought it :D and also some stickers which are sooo cute..hehe..
Owyaa, right after me and Dhilla arrived at Shibuya, we  went to The Body Shop store. Dhilla wanted to buy a limited edition body lotion and i was just looking around. But then i found this "Hemp Lip Protector" which was described as intense moisturisation for dry and cracked lips. And i need that soo bad because i've always problems with my very dry lips. Even my friends were also being sooo much talkative when it came to my lips. So, the normal lip balm is not enough for me. hehe..
Well, it costs me more than the usual lip balm, but it's worth it. And it's also perfect for this cool season and of course for the soon coming winter season :)

Danbo Quartet Shared Love :D

Hi people :D
How was your weekend? I hope you had a great one, cuz i also had a great one which i spent together with friends and our danbo(s)..
Who doesn't like ice cream? Well, i guess maybe there're some of you who don't really like ice cream the way i do. I do really love ice cream!! a looott :D One of my favorite is Cookie Minster from Coldstone..hehehe
So, yesterday me, Dhilla, and Mbak Rani went to enjoy ice cream at Royal Host. I think the ice cream name was Chocola&Berry Parfaet.. It's limited for winter edition. And it's sooo yummy. It becomes one of my favorite ice cream at Royal Host after the Hot Chocolate Fudge Sundae. 
Then, i went to Shinjuku with Dhilla, Akira, and Rama to see a popular landmark in Shinjuku and also winter illumination (this is one reason why i love winter, esp. December. Because there are lots of illuminations). Too bad i didn't checked my camera's battery before i went there. So i could only take few photos there until finally my camera was out of battery.
Anyway, good that i was able to take these photos. Enjoy :D

*ps: when we were sooo serious taking photos of our danbo, there was a foreigner (eerrr...well we were aslo foreigner since we're in Japan..hehe) who asked if we might know about devian art. Then she said she saw photos of danbo a lot there. And before she left, she took a photo of us and danbo :D

Indonesian Ambassador for Japan, Letter of Credentials, and Horse-Drawn Carriage ;)

So, today when i checked my facebook (on the newsfeed) i found my friend was sharing a video that was quite interesting. Then i watched the video and started wondering.
Here, first i'll share the video to you..


 
Then i knew that it had something to do with Letter of Credentials which was going to be delivered to  the Japanese Emperor, Emperor Akihito. But i wonder why Mr. Lutfi (Indonesian Ambassador) had to dress like that, moreover riding the horse-drawn carriage to the Imperial Palace? I really want to know the meaning behind them. hehehe.
So, if you're interested to know more about this, you may check Indonesian embassy's site at this link CLICK ME
Anyway, i'm gonna take JLPT today, wish me luck :D
