Instagram: Gelas Starbucks

Saya baru saja mendapat ide untuk menulis cerita tentang foto-foto yang saya publish di akun instagram saya. Sejauh ini saya sudah mempublish 149 foto di instagram, dan saya pikir mungkin akan menarik jika saya menulis sedikit cerita tentang foto-foto terebut.

“Wasted”

Wasted. Their business is great, though. #sbux #coffeecup

Foto ini saya ambil tahun lalu, ketika saya masih kuliah S2 di Belanda. Waktu itu masih summer disana, dan matahari masih belum terbenam saat itu, walaupun sudah lewat jam 7 petang.

Saya mengambil foto tersebut di tepi sungai Rotte (hasil penelusuran saya di Google dan Wikipedia) masih dalam radius 1 mil dari kampus saya (Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam).

Waktu itu kami masih dalam masa-masa penyusunan tesis (yang sepertinya tidak pernah berakhir itu), yang membuat saya sangat butuh mencari suasana baru selain di kamar flat dan kampus. Bersepeda sendiri dan pergi ke tempat yang belum pernah saya datangi adalah ide yang sangat menarik.

Saat itu sedang dalam “golden hour” yang sebenarnya bukan hanya sangat cocok untuk mengambil foto, tapi juga sangat nyaman menikmati waktu-waktu sebelum matahari terbenam.

Sesaat sebelum saya beranjak pulang dari “refreshing singkat” ini, saya melihat sebuah gelas kopi bekas yang tergeletak di sempadan sungai Rotte itu. Dan saya pikir, gelas kopi ini layak untuk saya foto.

Gelas starbucks itu dibuang begitu saja.

Tinggalkan id akun instagram kamu di kolom komentar, saya pasti akan mengeceknya dan memberi “love” dan komentar. 🙂

Keep Improving

It doesn’t matter if currently things are looking not so impressive. There’s a lot of things have been learned, thus we’ll keep improving.

This is my 600th post on my blog here. The 600th since my first post in 2011, literally 6 years ago. There has been a lot of things that I have been written so far, and all of them are obviously based on my thoughts, feelings, opinion, stories, etc. Continue reading “600 Posts”

Underscore

Well, I am not a big fan of underscore, if it’s related to username. I don’t have any of my usernames using any underscore attached to it. It just doesn’t look good to me. Like there is no aesthetic  of the use of underscore in a username. And yeah, I am being sarcastic.

Flipboard

This is one of my most used apps on my phone. It’s a news aggregation app, which lets me choose certain topics that I am interested to. As I implied earlier, I like this app, except that there are too many biased content for me, like: Donald Trump, American Football, Basketball, The Kardashians topics that are not my favorites. I need to customize it, apparently.

Didn’t Pay The Parking Fees (No Need To)

I was lucky today that I didn’t have to pay any of my parking fee for my scooter. I went to a lot of places this morning by scooter, and it used to be paid when we parked our vehicles on the parking lot. But not today.

Thanks for them, the parking guys, who didn’t bother to ask for the parking fee. They even knew that I didn’t have any money to pay for the parking fees. I mean, I didn’t have enough money allocated for parking fee.

As a matter of fact, the practices were all illegal, though. So, I had a pretty strong argument, in case they wanted to argue. Beside the fact that I didn’t have any money for that.

Site Is Not Loading

I’t getting often that I have always received a notification from Jetpack, saying that my website is not loading. For god sake, I am getting more worried regarding to the quality of my hosting provider. I know that it has been back online again, but I just can’t take it more often, like at least for twice a month. Continue reading “Site Is Not Loading”

Solo Backpacking Rewinds

It is just keep getting normal that I always found myself to recalling my memories from my solo backpacking in Europe. For sure I am not going to do it again by myself, instead, I will go backpacking with my wife, in the future. Or even with our future children.
