Have you ever tried eating nasi pecel ? If never, let you try. This night I ate that menu in a warung not so far with my home, namely “Waras”. I went to there with my brothers. This menu is special even its taste is same with another pecel. Because of its place is suitable for us to chat randomly till late at night. This warung also served us some gorengan like tempe and tofu with souce ‘petis’.

This warung is also place for us to remember memory long time ago. For the first time we went here maybe when I was student at junior high school at Jogja. So, it’s like nostalgia.


The Draft Has Just Finished

It’s not easy to write book. I planned a year ago starting to write a book. But, in reality planning is not fit in with real life. It’s hard to write because you must assemble the facts from interviews, documents, books, journals, articles, and intensive discussion. All of those things need more time so if you do in leisure time, your burden is maybe will be more hard because you will feel tired. This condition happened to me.

So, even the draft still not a final text but from this, layout stage can be started. After this editing and also publishing will be done then. I hope that this book can be released as planned before.

Rumah Kopi

I still had a part of my book that was missed with the update. It was about innovation policy with China as sample. I had found with the source and completely read it. So, it was time to write down. Time showed that it was afternoon near zuhur, I planned to go to some coffee shop.

After praying duhur at masjid then I went to the city to find out the shops that open. A place usually I hung out was crowd with people then I went around and found Rumah Kopi. It located at Mastrip street not so far with my father-farm shop. I ordered iced lattee and spent the time until battery of my laptop sooned to die.

I focused writing what I planned before.

Tomorrow will be final day for editing my book before it will sent to layouter.


Yesterday officially my first nephew from my sister had name. His father gave him name “Salim Ilham Ramadhan” with nickname “Ilham”. Aqiqah, an Islamic guidance, signs the day. It’s held in the seventh of the birthday. Those were many guests in that day so in my home was full of people.

This baby is very cute, especially when he was having taken a bath by my mom or sister. Yesterday, his hair was cut and now his head is naked.

Eid Mubarak

This day we celebrated Idul Fitri. This morning we prayed Ied then ‘open house’ letting people came in to our house and forgave each others. This culture is repeatable every Eid.

This year is with the last year before. There is new member of my family including my sister’s husband and their son. In this morning I took several photos of my parents and their grandchild.

Happy Eid Mubarak to everyone !
