angry sky?

felt a little bored with my thesis. When I looked outside my window, I see this stunning sky. So i went to the balcony. It’s so damn hot and humid. Summer is definitely killing me. *lap keringet *peres baju

I remember i read about black card photography technique somewhere, it’s a technique to take dramatic sky without making the building or scenery under it a silhouette. will explain about it later.

So i tried, without a tripod, which is a huge mistake. It’s so difficult to keep the camera stable with only one hand. Not forget to mention my camera is quite heavy.

But i’m so happy with the result. I think it’s a beginner luck. Will explore this technique when i’ve finished my thesis.

my not so touchy graduation photo

I’ll have my graduation ceremony this Saturday, and defense on June,28. It’s quite strange for me, because in Indonesia, you have to have your defense first and then you can attend the graduation ceremony.

In my former university, ITB, we have 3 graduation ceremonies in 1 year, March, July and October. So we have to make sure we could have defense at least 1 month before that, then we could attend the graduation ceremony.

While here, in National Cheng Kung University, Graduation ceremony only hold once in a year. So, no matter we have had or defense or not, we could attend the graduation ceremony.

.

So, before i have to return my toga, i’ll have this photo session with nastiti, my-not-so-touchy-grad. here is 1 of the pics.  -__-”

Oh, this pic should be rate 17+

perempuan senja

Saya ini termasuk perempuan yang mudah bahagia dengan hal-hal remeh temeh. Mudah sedih juga dengan hal-hal kecil tidak penting. I blame my female hormone for that, haha.

Seperti juga kebanyakan orang-orang lain di sudut dunia, saya menyukai senja, teramat sangat. Saya bisa tiba-tiba berkaca-kaca hanya dengan melihat langit kemerahan kemudian matahari pelan-pelan ditelan malam atau tersenyum-senyum seperti orang yang dimabuk cinta.

Kemarin sore, setelah seminggu yang lalu cuaca tidak menentu (seharusnya sudah masuk spring, tapi masih saja ada kiriman angin dingin entah itu dari Mainland China atau Jepang) akhirnya matahari kembali bersinar ceria dari pagi. Sesaat sebelum pergi hang out dengan teman-teman lab, saya terpana melihat sinar keemasan yang memantul di dinding gedung-gedung di Kuang Fu kampus, yang biasa saya intip dari jendela lab saya di lantai 4.

ketika melihat foto yang terakhir ini, teman lab saya, Kent, bilang bahwa “This looks like somewhere in foreign country, not in Tainan”

saya hanya tertawa mendengarnya sambil mengajak dia ikut mengintip matahari yang perlahan-lahan ditelan malam.

  When I am miles away, will you still check on me? 
Tell me things will be alright. Just tell me we will be together someday.
iIts the endless dreams I have. 
I’ll be your sunset if you’ll be my silhouette. If you’ll be my silhouette.
 A Rocket To The Moon- I’ll Be Your Sunset

welcome party!

Our lab has 2 new members this semester. Masashi Morita, student exchange from Hokkaido University, who apparently can speak “bahasa sedikit-sedikit” because he spent 2 months working at Karawang 2 years ago  (such a small world!) and Esther, an undergraduate student.

So, after group meeting report (this week is my turn) we held a welcome party for both of them. Fortunately the group meeting went well and only about 1.5 hours. But, at the end of the meeting, Prof Fuku raised a very difficult question which is  “the main point of my thesis”. -__-“. ok, just skipped this thesis part.

Welcome on board, Mori and Esther
