Transit selama 5 jam di bandara Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Tidak terasa. Kami masih terlalu sibuk karena excited. Membaca kembali itinerary sambil menyeruput Ice Coffee-nya McDonald. Takut gak mau pulang.
Take off lagi...
Akibat packing sampai subuh, terbang selama 5 jam ini kami manfaatkan untuk menggantikan waktu tidur kami yang tersita. Ketika kami terbangun, kami disambut dengan pemandangan malam yang bertaburan kemerlap sinar lampu kota Osaka. Saatnya beranjak dari kursi pesawat dan memulai perjalanan...
These are the people who had the important role in Plewo Doi, the cultural event that took place at Museum Tekstil and Dia.Lo.Gue Artspace on 2-24 May 2015. With this event, they aimed to introduce Sikka’s culture, the process of tenun ikat and natural dye.
They are (left to right) Octoriko, Cendy, Daniel David, and Annisa.
They are the women behind the beautiful kain tenun ikat Sikka (Maumere, Flores, NTT).
This fabric-making process requires quite a long time: from cotton planting, natural colors making, cotton-to-yarn spinning, pattern tying, natural dyeing, and weaving.
No wonder, it takes more patience and persistence in the process of making. I am… truly amazed!
...And the photo below proves that we are still working together since we were in the college. ❤❤❤
I am so happy to be a part of Plewo Doi at Dia.Lo.Gue Artspace! Hopefully, there will be a chance like this in the future. Hopefully this kind of event can be held every year, because the main objective is to approach the young generation about the culture of Indonesia.
A month of hospital treatment... really bored me to death. Just because of the bad habits in consuming spicy and unhygienic foods, I was diagnosed with Colitis ulserative.
The first symptom I experienced was the defecation along with the blood.
Initially, maybe I was just lack of drinking water. So I began to have a plenty of water and had the high-fiber foods.
But in the reality, it didn't stop. The case was getting worse as I had diarrhea afterwards. So after 2 weeks, I was brought to the hospital.
RS Mitra Kemayoran, Jakarta (1-5 April 2015)
Island Hospital, Penang (27-29 April 2015)
I had endoscopy back then.
I was discharged by Island Hospital after 3 days being treated. I was totally recovered. But... I still had to control to the food I consumed (should not be spicy, oily, and unhygienic) and must be taking medication regularly.
Thank you for all of my friends, my lecturers, my bosses, and all of my relatives who keep sending the prayer and the attention to me.
