This day is my fourth time in this month going to Jakarta. I arrived at 8.30 pm (approximation) this morning then took a breakfast and drink black coffee. All I was doing at station. After finishing my reading (related to my research), I then by Gojek going to Sport Station in some mal in MH Thamrin ( I think It was in Sarinah) buying a sporty bag for my travelling. It is too lazy bringing suitcase in a travel from Bandung to Jakarta (I will not bring many belongings) so a bag that I bought actually not like a suitcase. I get a bag whose brand “Reebook”. It is not too big and too bag, it is suitable for me. I hope it will be accompany me for a long time. After praying in a mosque near mal (whose name Alhikmah) then I directly order Gojek and bring me to a guesthouse (located in Hayam Wuruk) that I order before in Traveloka. The guesthouse costs 160 k one room for 2 people. My friend has just arrived here. Enjoy the night, tomorrow is conference day. I will give a presentation entitled “For IPTN to UAVINDO Nusantara : A Shift of Triple Helix and Its Implication in Science and Technology Policy“.
Monday morning at 9 AM, Air Asia brough me and also SBM guys to Kuala Lumpur. The aim was to join IC-HCKM conference. I was one of the presenters in parallel session. We stayed at UTM homestay in the UTM KL building area. From here, I can see twin towers of Petronas because of how near our place to the heart of city center. The agenda in the first day was just staying at the room and then hanging out at the night. We (Pak Hary, Widi, and me) went to Petronas towers then looking for dinner in a food court (I forget with the name). When we went back to our dorm, somebody let us to deliver. We was surprised with this kind old guy. In the second day, we altogether joined seminar in Renaissance hotel in KL. All the day we spent here until dinner time. When the parallel session was going on, I attended the 2nd room with Pak Hary as moderator. When I presented some awkward moments happened when some audiences asked me including Pak Yan. I was so confused in that time. I got many noted for improvement of the research. In the last day, we went to Central market buying gifts (oleh-oleh).
Last night, I hung out with my friends when I was a member of leadership dormitory, PPSDMS Nurul Fikri (now Asrama Kepemimpinan). In this time, Mas Nurman was the host. We gathered in Kafe Tangga in Terusan Tubagus and discussed not just about our routine but also about the opportunity and potential problem for the future, so we must wait and see. One point I got a lesson was business must be sustainable and scalable (lesson from Fahmi). We continue our talks in D’Cube Dipatiukur. While we talk each other, we wait Abdul but he never be seen. In this time Mas Nurman talk about political economy. Yazid went home first and so do Deden (not joining talks more). But as you know, another interesting talk was about getting prospect wife. I asked Mas Nurman and Yazid about that point, there are now husband.

After completing jogging 5k from Fitness park to GOR Saparua, I take a breakfast in Surabi Saparua. This is my first time here. Even it looks legendary I never go here. So long I have not eating surabi so this morning is very special. I order two kinds : kinza (surabi with red sugar) and Pisang keju susu (combination of banana, cheese, and milk). This surabi is so special because of its process using tungku, not LPG cooker. One of surabi can be seen below. This is kinza.
I am in Tri Tangtu, a coffee shop in Dago Pakar. Here, I try to code my data from the interviews I have done before. When I read, cut and paste, and write there are beautiful songs came from a speaker. “It’s familiar”, I think.
“Sampai kita tua sampai jadi debu…”
Yes, Banda Neira. Even sometimes I feel boring with its songs but in this time, not. The view of this cafe is supporting. The songs and view are match.
The songs are very romantic.
I have just deleted all posts written when I was undergraduate student. I did it because those are many secrets that must be kept. I created this blog firstly was to publish all of my recorded life including my secret story so in that time I protected this blog to public. Since last year, I remembered that I have this wordpress blog and I wanted to reactivate it by writing diary. I do it using english text that to improve my writing skill. I know till the day, I can not write english well. So, this blog is a media of training.
Even most of my posts is not long enough, I try to keep on. For me, writing (even just a diary) is a good thing to learn something new.
Last day (1/9) I visited Juanda Forest Park (known as Tahura). In the beginning of this year, I was here just for meeting senior (IA ITB) after performing drone in Tebing Keraton with Radja et.al. But, visiting this place to take refreshing was the second time. When I was member of Majelis Taklim Salman, the seniors brought us here to tadabbur alam. Last day, I went there with Mukhlis, my pondok-mate when I was in Muallimin Yogyakarta 8-14 years ago. The park is full of big trees. I entered Japan and Dutch Clive (Goa Jepang dan Goa Belanda). I forgot that the day was Friday.
