Prau, akhirnya aku menemukanMu, iya Kamu (Diriku yang hilang)

Ayo naik ke prau, gitu katanya.
Teringat memori 10 tahun lalu, ketika aku menginjakkan kaki di depan ranu kumbolo, tahun itu tahun keemasan, masa SMA yang takkan pernah terlupakan seumur hidup,, grasshopper mountainer climber,, itu kelompok pecinta alam ku dulu.
Umurku 16 tahun, aku berdiri di gunung tertinggi di pulau jawa. Mahameru.

Lalu, dengan tekadku yg mantap, kujawab, iya aku berangkat, sudah saatnya aku kembali ke gunung, tempat dimana semua mimpi keliling duniaku dirajut.

Alam dengan sunyinya memberikan aku tenang, mendengar dan menjawab setiap tanyaku, tasbih takbir tahmid pada Sang Maha Pencipta bisa terdengar merasuki setiap urat dalam nadiku, kuadukan apapun padaNya, piluku menderu syukurku lantang hingga tak terasa air mataku menetes.
Allah, Allah, Allah, aku lemah, lemah lemah jika bukan karena Cinta dan RahmatMu, aku telah mati ribuan kali dengan sakit dan kehilangan2 ini, begitu curhatku. Aku menajamkan doaku, meminta kekuatan, bahwa aku bisa kebal dengan semuanya. Allah. Aku tau ini semuanya ujian, dengannya aku harus semakin menyadari bahwa hanya Engkau tempatku bergantung. Aku terus berjalan, bermuhasabah.

Ashar dengan rintik rintik hujan yang makin menghilang terang, kami berharap pendakian cerah.

Tak terasa kakiku melangkah terus maju,
Aku harus sampai summit sebelum hujan turun lagi tekadku.

Beberapa kelompok terlewati,
kabut naik,
suhu semakin tinggi,
Hari semakin gelap
aku kaget tidak ada siapapun lagi dibelakangku,
Aku baru sadar ternyata aku hanya sendirian dalam kerapatannya malam.
Cemara2 tinggi nampak seperti bayang bayang yang akan menelan
Pandangan seperti kunang2, kadar oksigen kian menipis menandakan semakin tingginya tempat yg sudah kudaki
sakit kakiku tak terasa karena aku hanya ingin berjalan terus, terus, terus.. aku takut sendiri,,
maka aku harus mengejar orang didepanku.

Kulihat samar samar dikejauhan
Aku semakin mempercepat langkahku
Aku berharap mereka melihat aku dan menungguku.

Ku pijakan kakiku lebih tinggi lagi sampai pada dataran sama dengan mereka
Tiba2 salah satu dari mereka berceloteh riangnya
"Selamat mbak kamu srikandi Indonesia, orang pertama yg sampai sejauh ini dirombongannya,huebaddd"

U yeyeyyeyy,,,!!!! *euforia bayangan bonus piring cantik dari indomart dengan senyum mbak2 kasir* itu adalah moment2 jarang  membahagiakan

Ada rasa haru tapi pengen ketawa kenceng2, gwpun jawab langsung
"Namanya bukan srikandi mas tapi sriretno" #ea ea ea
Tungturuntungtung dumplak tung tung bang

Pingin nodong si mas2 jawa ini ,, terus mana bonus piring cantiknya mas? (X_x)
tapi ga boleh karena kita anak pengajian harus kalem senyum semampai,,  hahahaaa
#gubrak

Dalam legaku menemukan sesama manusia, baru kutau mereka rombongan ranger kami yang membawakan istana2 unuk kami bermalam dipuncak nanti.

"Kita harus sampai secepat mungkin mbak soalnya mau langsung diriin tenda buat mba mba sm masnya, biar bs langsung istirahat"

Begitu kata nya dengan penuh pengabdian.

Sampailah kami di tower, menandakan kami sampai dipuncak pertama
Aku melolong panjang meneriakan beberapa nama nama sahabatku..
Hatiku mencelos mengetahui track gunung ini tidak semudah yang dibayangkan..
Bagaimana teman2 ku yang masih dibawah..aku berdoa penuh harap semoga mereka semua bisa naik dengan lancar. (T_T) Ya Allah aku hanya ingin mereka semua selamat, kami masih pemula Ya Allah, walaupun udah ga muda muda amat Ya Allah :D :D tapi kami jiwanya muda, seneng deh ketemu sm yang muda muda, jadi terus buat kami muda Ya Allah :D ;) eaa

"Mba jangan bengong terus" celotehnya merusak imaji
Akupun nyengir nyengir kuda.

"AYO LANJOT" aku menimpali
Menuruni bukit, melewati lembah kayak ninja hatori

Akhirnya si mas masnya pada buka cariel terus mereka pake kostum dan loncar loncat riang
"Teletubis teletubiies tingki wingki lala pooh teletubies teletubies...."

Tenang itu cuma keos difikiran saya.

Kami sampe di bukit teletubies
Bukit indah ala ala hampir sabana,, tapi ga ada sayap, abis sayap kremesnya.
#lho
Yap bukit sabana yang landai hijau dan ditumbuhi oleh bunga2 putih cantik prau..aku bisa merasakan segarnya aroma tetumbuhan.
aku terpukau, kami dipayungi langsung oleh ribuan matahari, bintang2 yang tampak dekat dipelupuk mata. Maha Suci Allah, kami kecil.
Tiada daya dan upaya tanpa pertolonganMu.

Aku tersungkur bersujud penuh kesyukuran manakala sampai di tempat camp kami. Inilah summit yang dimaksud.

Berlinang air mataku, aku atur nafasku
Aku bertafakur, Aku berbicara pada diriku
Alhamdulilah, aku mantapkan tujuanku.
Iya, Aku takkan berhenti lagi walaupun sakit
Iya, Aku takkan kembali walaupun kehilangan
Aku tau, pasti ada cerita yang indah di setiap akhir perjalanan
Seberapapun sakitnya ditinggalkan
Aku tau yang ku perlukan kini terus berjalan maju kedepan
Karena Aku tau Engkau takkan meninggalkan aku Rabbi
Aku tau Engkau yang akan membersamai aku,
Aku mohon 1000 kekuatan wonderwoman
Aku mohon 10000 keberanian batman
Aku mohon 100000 kecerdasan ironman

Aku mohon selalu bisa kayak doraemon yg ajaib.
Allah Allah Allah
Aku mohon keselamatan lahiriah batiniah dalam perjalanan hidupku kedepan
Semoga aku bisa menceriakan lagi dunia ini
Dengan manfaat yang lebih. Amin
Semangatt!!! *tiuptiupterompet*

Welcome Ramadhan :))



 
One night I heard a knock on my door;
Who can it be,I wasn't quite sure.
I open the door and am filled with glee;
The visitor ahead is no stranger to me.

I welcome the guest with utmost delight;
For I know it has come to give me respite.
An air of happiness fills the space;
My home now seems, a better place!

Have you any clue who this visitor could be?
Yes!its Ramadhan,the month of mercy.
The pious and righteous can't await its arrival;
Others seem to greet it, with waves of denial.

For Allah(SWT) we fast from dawn to dusk;
For Him our breath is the fragrance of musk.
The muslims who pray and fast with zest;
Are aware of the rewards of this month manifest.

Throughout this month we weep and repent;
Now is the time to strongly lament.
And those who shun this sacred month;
on the Day of Reckoning will face the brunt.

In the last ten nights,hides the Night of Decree;
Allah(SWT) then awaits for his slaves to plea.
The angels descend with Gabriel(AS) in the lead;
To check on the steadfast and record every deed.

A feeling of grief now fills my heart;
As the month of Ramadhan will soon depart.
So lets make a start and worship Him alone;
Now that the worth of this month is known.

 
Ramadan is Here!!,


 ;))

Are u Being MOBBED? Bullying at the Workplace?




Mobbing in the context of human beings means bullying of an individual by a group in any context, such as a family, school, workplace, neighbourhood, or community. When it occurs as emotional abuse in the workplace, such as "ganging up" by co-workers, subordinates or superiors, to force someone out of the workplace through backstabbing you by the rumour , innuendo, intimidation, humiliation, discrediting, and isolation, it is also referred to as malicious, nonsexual, nonracial, general harassment
Mobbing in the workplace or Workplace bullying, like childhood bullying, is the tendency of individuals or groups to use persistent aggressive or unreasonable behavior against a co-worker or subordinate. Workplace bullying can include such tactics as verbal, nonverbal, psychological, physical abuse and humiliation. This type of aggression is particularly difficult because, unlike the typical forms of school bullying, workplace bullies often operate within the established rules and policies of their organization and their society. Bullying in the workplace is in the majority of cases reported as having been perpetrated by management and takes a wide variety of forms. Bullying can be covert or overt but it's always bad.

According to Bassman, common abusive workplace behaviours are:
  1. Disrespecting and devaluing the individual, often through disrespectful and devaluing language or verbal abuse
  2. Overwork and devaluation of personal life (particularly salaried workers who are not compensated)
  3. Harassment through micromanagement of tasks and time
  4. Overevaluation and manipulating information (for example concentration on negative characteristics and failures, setting up subordinate for failure).
  5. Managing by threat and intimidation
  6. Stealing credit and taking unfair advantage
  7. Preventing access to opportunities
  8. Downgrading an employee's capabilities to justify downsizing
  9. Impulsive destructive behaviour
According to Hoel and Cooper, common abusive workplace behaviours are:
  1. Having your opinions and views ignored
  2. Withholding information which affects your performance
  3. Being exposed to an unmanageable workload
  4. Being given tasks with unreasonable or impossible targets or deadlines
  5. Being ordered to do work below competence
  6. Being ignored or facing hostility when you approach
  7. Being humiliated or ridiculed in connection with your work
  8. Excessive monitoring of a person's work (see micromanagement)
  9. Spreading gossip
  10. Having insulting or offensive remarks made about your person (i.e. habits and background), your attitudes or your private life
  11. Having key areas of responsibility removed or replaced with more trivial or unpleasant tasks

    (en.wikipedia.org)

History Of Fashion Week

FASHIONISTA, U'VE GOT TO KNOW IT! 

A fashion week is a fashion industry event, lasting approximately one week, which allows fashion designers, brands or "houses" to display their latest collections in runway shows and buyers and the media to take a look at the latest trends. Most importantly, these events let the industry know what's "in" and what's "out" for the season.
The most prominent fashion weeks are held in the four fashion capitals of the world: New York City, London, Milan, and Paris. Some other important fashion weeks in the world are held in Australia, Bangalore, Berlin, Bangkok, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Dallas, Dubai, Hanoi ,Hong Kong, Jakarta, Los Angeles, Łódź, Madrid, Marseille, Rome, Singapore, Seoul, Tokyo, São Paulo, Toronto, .

Fashion week happens twice a year in the major fashion capitals of the world: Paris, Milan, New York and London. Fashion weeks are held several months in advance of the season to allow the press and buyers a chance to preview fashion designs for the following season. From January through April designers showcase their autumn and winter collections. Fashion week for spring and summer is held from September through November. This is also to allow time for retailers to arrange to purchase or incorporate the designers into their retail marketing. The latest innovations in dress designs are showcased by renowned fashion designers during these fashion weeks, and all these latest collections are covered in magazines such as Vogue.

THE History of Fashion Week starting In 1943 and was held in New York, with one main purpose: to distract attention from French fashion during World War II, when workers in the fashion industry were unable to travel to Paris. This was an opportune moment, as for centuries designers in America had been thought to be reliant on the French for inspiration. The fashion publicist Eleanor Lambert organized an event she called ‘Press Week’ to showcase American designers for fashion journalists, who had previously ignored their works. 

Eleanor Lambert



During World War II, women entered the workforce in droves, giving them spending power they had never had before. Since everything was rationed, the only item women could spend money on was clothes, Tiffany says. The U.S. government wanted women to spend money on American-made clothes, but American designers weren’t producing clothes to the standards of their European counterparts.


The first Fashion Week, then called “Press Week,” was held at the Plaza Hotel.
Journalists stayed at the hotel. Norman Norell, Lilly Daché, and Valentina (not to be confused with Valentino) were among those who exhibited.
Press Week, which eventually became Fashion Week, led to the rise in prominence of American designers, as their creations proliferated on the pages of Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, magazines that previously only paid attention to the French designers.
But American fashion truly came of age in 1973, when five American designers were invited to the Palace of Versailles, near Paris, for a competition with French designers. Bill Blass, Stephen Burrows, Halston, Anne Klein and Oscar de la Renta represented the Americans, and won.
Since 1943, Fashion Week has been held every year, magazines like Vogue (which were normally filled with French designs) began to feature more and more American innovations. In 1994, Fashion week moved to its spot in Bryant Park, with its white tents and invite-only status. Recently, Fashion Week has moved to another location, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.


This is a short history and timeline of fashion week and highlights the most important moments.

I'm fallin in Love with Payung Teduh

First time I heard their song is a couple months ago, when heart is really hard to breath, when mouth is out of spoken, nothing happens, but rain. Indonesian said "Penggalauan". LOL :D :D 

Trully but yes, however u're in a love story or not, their song can influence your feeling.. hmmm .. into love or even heartbroken. 

The Band Called Payung Teduh.



 How they create the band????


Payung Teduh was created by two close friends that used most of their time in playing music at the canteen of FIB as well as providing background music for the Pagupon Theater of Indonesia University. These two close friends, Is and Comi, played their music anywhere from the canteen of FIB UI, hangout places inside the campus complex, to the lake side near UI’s Center Administration Building. Their togetherness in playing music has been supported by friends around them which then lead to the creation of a duo that eventually became the next big thing at UI.

Payung Teduh was then born in late 2007 with their first formation, Is on vocal & guitar, and Comi on Double Bass. After playing duo for some time, it was necessary for them to improve their exploration in their music as well as improving their stage performance. In doing this, they recruited Cito as a drummer and Ivan as a guitalele player in 2010. Angin Pujaan Hujan was the first song that eventually known as the signature composition of Payung Teduh’s style of music. As time went by, they wrote new songs such as Kucari Kamu, Amy, Untuk Perempuan Yang Sedang Dalam Pelukan. They also played songs written by a colleague/mentor Catur Ari Wibowo who is also a director of Pagupon Theater that wrote songs such as Resah, Cerita Tentang Gunung dan Laut. Amalia Putri, a good friend of them, also wrote songs like Malam and Tidurlah that were then added into their album. Payung Teduh then recorded these songs and released their first indie album in late 2010. 
 
 can't stop listening to their music
can't get them out of my playlist :))

check this out their amazing music and voice :)

 
Happy Listening :)

Eye Catchy Bags n' Clutches of Olympia Le - Tan

ATTENTION!!!! IS THIS REALLY A BOOK?OPS... Wait!

No, They're NOT!! 
These are Catchy Bags and Clutches By Olympia Le-Tan
Really sick and Brilliant isn't it? :))
 While Chanel, Hermes and Celine are all pretty amazing, we like to mix it up a bit and what better way than with these one of a kind Olympia Le -Tan book-clutches.
This self-taught fashion designer studied and learned with the classics, starting her career at the Chanel Studio with Karl Lagerfeld to working with Balmain and within one year collaborating with A.P.C. and J.M. Weston. 

Not a bad resume to have!  Le -Tan incorporated her love of books and her edgy Parisian style into this uniquely hand crafted collection of bags and clutches. These bags have already been seen on the likes of fashions’ elite all over Europe and is catching up here in the states. The collection includes some literally classics such as Lolita, Moby Dick, Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby and if that doesn’t entice you, you can always wear the “ultimate chill pill”.















 It's apear Everywhere!!! 
From street, a Fashion Week 
into Red Carpet 










 



From a regular teenager into many famous people!

 
















Everybody wear it! Everybody love it! 
I love it too ^^
  

HOW COULD IT BE SO POPULAR?
Recently when Hollywood star Natalie Portman and French super star Clemence Poesy attended different releases with the same style of handbags by coincidence,The French brand Olympia Le-Tan suddenly came into focus.
 

 People especially young ladies are so crazy about the handbag. Then how does this new and childish design idea come to the public?
The designer of this series of handbag is Olympia Le-Tan who once worked in Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, YS and other big bag-design companies. Finally, she chose handbag design as her main career and was popularized by her first handbag design of You can‘t judge a book by its cover in September of 2009. Since then, the handbags of Olympia Le-Tan frequently showed on many famous magazines and the famous fashion journal ELLE especially promoted bags of this brand. You should know then artistic young men were proud of having a handbag of this brand.
Olympia Le-Tan makes use of canvas and embroidery to replicate the book cover so as to render nostalgic feeling and some paterns are even in the French humor. 

THE TIPS
How to matching clothes at the appearance of  this bag?
In a word, be simple if you can. But the principle is you should possibly choose elegant collocation of dress, or small formal attire dress, or casual clothing of simple color. You can be as creative as you can, so your intellectual temperament can get incisively and vividly expressed, naturally to be matched with so called “bag” grace. In turn, one of the best characteristics is that you can choose what kind of books you want, that is, it can be customerized. But I don’t mean that you can choose any book with any content. What I really mean is the book is what you have read or is reading. Otherwise if someone refers to it or ask you the reason you choose that, you won’t be embarrassed then. In different occasions, choose the right one to represent you is the most important.








Really Interesting right??




Mom, Can I get one please??? @_@
