Raditya Dika


He is a famous person in Indonesia. A genius comedian. He is the man who introduce me with stand up comedy.

Today, I buy 4 books. Fiction. All of them. "Supernova #4: Partikel", "Kambing Jantan", "Cinta Brontosaurus", "Tolong, Radith Membuat Saya Bego!". The last three books is written by him. A best-selling book. There are many people who inspired by his style of writing.

Hope tomorrow better than today!

Booklover



What on earth is going on with me? Since last year I became a booklover. I can finish 2-3 books a week. Before that, I'm allergic with book.

I think I should be grateful, it is a good activity. Yeah, there are many advantages can I get. Reading is the window to the world. Increase our knowledge.

For me, read a book is a therapy. And according to studies done by David Lewis, reading better than listening to music to decrease our stress. Yups, reading is the best way I think.

Oh, I love to read fiction book more. Well, I read any book that appeals me.

Enjoy reading

WPC: Nostalgic



This is English version of my last post in Arip Blog.

First, WPC is stand for Weekly Photo Challenge. Every bloggers are welcome to participate this. Each week, The Daily Post will provide one theme, and we just take a picture based on our interpretation of the theme.

Well, this week is about “Nostalgic”. And I show you the photo taken when I am in senior high school. Yeah, I am with Abusadji, my classmates. We had a picnic in the school, a garden near behind mosque and library.

It’s taken when we are in last year before we graduated. And I think that’s a memorable moment with them.
Abusadji, I miss all of you.

Day 2 of Ramadhan

Yeah, day 2 of Ramadhan! And I got first line in Taraweeh.

Okay, this afternoon, I travel 4 different place; Gramedia Merdeka, Bandung Electronic Center, Balubur Town Square, and Palasari Book Market. For what? Okay, I will tell that actually I plan to pick up the prize from myOyeah, buy new books, and fix my camera. But I just accomplished the second one.

There are it, I buy 3 books…


I failed to pick up the prize because I can’t found RanggaPoint, the place where myOyeah located. And unfortunately, this day is last day I can take the prize.

I visit BEC and Baltos, but I get nothing. My camera still sick.

For the last, my SMS-phobia relapsing, a very very serious problem for me. Oh God, help me please.


Thank God for this day. Always make me a thankful person.

First Day of Ramadhan

Today, I spend whole day in house, just stay out for Shalat in mosque. Tilawah, read book, watch TV, listen to music, and blogwalk are my activity today.

When blogwalking, I got a great idea for my business. It is about culinary. I want to modernize baked sweet potato Cilembu. Improve the packaging and some experiment, like adding some taste, cheese maybe.

Hope I can make it happen. And this is a must!

Sad and bad news, I lose opportunity to go oversea, because I can't send requirements for 2nd wave selection of Harvard MUN 2014 in time. The main reason why I can't send in time because I don’t confident about myself, I feel very pessimistic. So I didn't fill the requirements seriously. I have to improve my English!

Oh, this night I got the third line when Taraweeh, the last shaf.

Thank for you, today. I hope tomorrow I will use the day to do more positive and productive activity.

Ramadhan 1434 H Mubarak!



As a Muslim, I am very happy because Ramadhan has finally arrived. Ramadhan is the most sacred month in Islamic Calendar as Allah said in Al-Quran.

The month of Ramadan is that in which was revealed the Quran; a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, a number of other days. Allah desires for you ease; He desires not hardship for you; and that you should complete the period, and that you should magnify Allah for having guided you, and that perhaps you may be thankful. 
(Al Baqarah 2:185)

Tomorrow, all Muslim in the world and I will be fasting from sunrise to sunset for the next 30 days. Actually, some start today.

Okay, Ramadhan Mubarak for all of you guys!

London


Hey, everybody know about this city, and I think a lot of people want to visit this city. So am I.
Yeah, I dream to set my foot to London. I can't describe the reason why I am choose this place as my wishlist. I just want to go there, take a picture, and the most important thing, I want to visit 221B Baker Street. Yes, house of the greatest detective in the world, Mr. Sherlock Holmes.
Hey London, wait me okay. Someday. Soon!

(Maybe) Motivation Letter for LIMUN 2014

This is my first English motivation letter. I make this to fulfill the requirement for 2nd wave selection of London International Model United Nations 2014. I’m not sure it is a motivation letter. So, this is it...

I was not born for one corner; the whole world is my native land. I am global citizen, so I have right to discover this world, wherever I want. By applying to this program, however I am struggling with this motivation letter; I am sure I can make that “dream” right come true.

LIMUN aims to build an understanding of global challenges amongst young people that crosses borders of background, culture and nationality. As a good global citizen, is a duty for me to take part to solve international problems. And LIMUN provide a lot of best young people who will work co-operatively to find solutions to future global problems that are compatible with the aims and principles of the United Nations. I am young people, I am Arif Abdurahman, and I am studied in Nursing Faculty of Padjadjaran University.

London is dream city of every traveler which is a huge city. London is peaceful, exciting, and multicultural city which provides a lot of sightseeing and attractions. 221B Baker Street is one of the places I want to visit, and I hope LIMUN can help me reach my dream.

To My Future Wife


Hey, you! Girl who will be my wife someday.
How are you? What are you doing now? Are you happy today?
Honey, I don’t know where you live, your family, your school, your friend, your activity. I don’t know who you are.
Honey, I promise I will be a great man who will keep you in the rest of our life. Now, I prepare to be that man.
Honey, I can’t wait until we meet each other. Are you waiting me?
