Beasiswa Pendidikan Indonesia LPDP

Tuesday, June 16, 2015
I love to learn and I believe that education is the most important base of civilization. Aku juga sangat ingin melanjutkan pendidikan ke tingkat yang lebih tinggi dan kalau bisa ke luar negeri. Tidak bisa dipungkiri, Indonesia belum menjadi negara maju dan aku percaya, hidup sendiri di bagian dunia yang berbeda akan memberi perspektif baru dan will be very enriching for me as a person. Indonesia meskipun (sebenarnya) sangat kaya dan aku percaya kualitas raw material SDM kita juga nggak kalah kalau dipupuk dengan benar (dan tidak malnourished, huft). I think education is the key to escape the vicious cycle of miskin-gizi buruk-bodoh.

Beasiswa Pendidikan Indonesia (BPI) Program Magister dan Doktoral adalah program beasiswa yang dibiayai oleh pemerintah Indonesia melalui pemanfaatan Dana Pengembangan Pendidikan Nasional (DPPN) dan dikelola oleh LPDP untuk pembiayaan studi lanjut pada program Magister atau program Doktoral di Perguruan Tinggi di dalam dan di luar negeri.
Beasiswa ini bertujuan untuk mendukung ketersediaan sumber daya manusia Indonesia yang berpendidikan dan berkualitas serta memiliki jiwa kepemimpinan yang tinggi dan mempunyai visi masa depan bangsa yang kuat sebagai pemimpin Indonesia masa depan. Komitmen LPDP tersebut diwujudkan melalui pemberian bantuan pendanaan dalam bentuk beasiswa kepada masyarakat untuk studi lanjut pada program Magister atau program Doktoral di Perguruan Tinggi unggulan baik di dalam maupun di luar negeri bagi yang memenuhi kualifikasi LPDP.
Beasiswa ini sangat berpotensi untuk membantu para hopeful individuals yang ingin melanjutkan pendidikan lebih tinggi tapi nggak punya dana (seperti aku, hahaha).

So with a little tug and push and a lot of thinking, akhirnya I applied for this scholarship!

I'll tell you the rest of the story in the next posts! Stay tuned!

It's been a while since the last time I wrote in this blog. Yes, this random blog :') I still call blog writing is my hobby though. Although I do not do it as often as I want.

At the moment I'm writing from one of the consult room on night shift. Please wish me luck tonight! Fingers crossed!

So yesterday I went to see a movie in this shopping mall. The movie finished, then I was heading back home. 

But not so fast... there are lots of shops there. Yes guys, shops filled with pretty things luring me in. The manequins were waving at me, whispering sweet words. Okay that was hyperbolic, I admit.

You know, I have this thing for high street brands, especially the English one. That thing is called LOVE. Ha! So pretty much everytime when I walk into those stores, I was like nooooooo, I wish I earn more so that I can buy these pretty things carefree.

I really like the London street style. So I felt like the shops were calling me. So *drumroll* I did enter! This pair of cutie called me. They are pretty ;) with lacey detail and a ribbon. What else can you ask for?

And no surprise, I.did.buy.them :D

All Too Well - Taylor Swift

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

I walked through the door with you, the air was cold,
But something 'bout it felt like home somehow.
And I left my scarf there at your sister's house,
And you still got it in your drawer even now.

Oh, your sweet disposition and my wide-eyed gaze.
We're singing in the car, getting lost Upstate.
Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place,
And I can picture it after all these days.

And I know it's long gone,
And that magic's not here no more,
And I might be okay,
But I'm not fine at all.

'Cause there we are again on that little town street.
You almost ran the red 'cause you were looking over me.
Wind in my hair, I was there, I remember it all too well.

Photo album on the counter, your cheeks were turning red.
You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-size bed
And your mother's telling stories about you on a tee ball team
You tell me 'bout your past, thinking your future was me.

And I know it's long gone
And there was nothing else I could do
And I forget about you long enough
To forget why I needed to...

'Cause there we are again in the middle of the night.
We dance around the kitchen in the refrigerator light
Down the stairs, I was there, I remember it all too well, yeah.

Maybe we got lost in translation, maybe I asked for too much,
And maybe this thing was a masterpiece 'til you tore it all up.
Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well.

Hey, you call me up again just to break me like a promise.
So casually cruel in the name of being honest.
I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here
'Cause I remember it all, all, all... too well.

Time won't fly, it's like I'm paralyzed by it
I'd like to be my old self again, but I'm still trying to find it
After plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your own
Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone

But you keep my old scarf from that very first week
'Cause it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me
You can't get rid of it 'cause you remember it all too well, yeah

'Cause there we are again, when I loved you so
Back before you lost the one real thing you've ever known
It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well

Wind in my hair, you were there, you remember it all
Down the stairs, you were there, you remember it all
It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well


I was mesmerized by Taylor's performance on Grammy night. I know it is probably not as acrobatic as Pink's or as hot as Bey's but I like it. When she stared to the camera, I feel like I can feel her sadness and anger. I feel you Tay, I feel you \m/



G-Dragon - Who You?

English Translation:

Baby I love you, I say this but
I don’t feel good at all
I want you I need you, I sing but
I don’t know why I feel bad, who you?
Congratulations, you already are meeting someone new
I hope it works out, althought it’s a bit early
If you’re happy, that’s all I want
But I keep getting angry, baby who you?
Du du du du du du du du du du du du du
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Du du du du du du du du du du du du du
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Baby I miss you, why do I keep thinking about you
I can’t meet someone else, I don’t want to
Whether I love you or hate you
I can’t determine, everyday I’m still confused
I don’t know why I feel bad, who you
You keep showing up in front of me with your arms locked to his
This isn’t right, are you kidding me?
Oh my? Enough is enough
A pair of dirty flowers bloomed by the street
Instead of the expensive purse that I couldn’t get you
Instead of shoes I bought a pillow, wet with tears
uh why are you happy while I’m unfortunate
Who you
Du du du du du du du du du du du du du
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Du du du du du du du du du du du du du
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Baby I just want you back
I want you back I want you back
Baby I know it’s too late it
just too late it’s just too late
Baby I just want you back
I want you back I want you back
Baby I know it’s too late it
just too late it’s just too late
I pray for fight, pray for a break-up
I always pray for you to come back to me
Every neighborhoods every streets
I visit and tell people that you two aren’t doing well
So lame and loser-ish, I’ve always been a loser
I didn’t know, you’re the same, you bad girl
I will treat you better, will you meet me?
I won’t bother you, will you please come back to me?
Baby I hate you Baby I loved you
Ma baby hate you
Baby love you du du du du du who you?

The Perks of Looking Like a Minor

I have this look (do not mean to brag) but I'd have to say that I look younger than my actual age. Since I am actually young, I look even younger. It is good, generally speaking. However, in my job sometimes people question my credibility.

"You look so young, how old are you?"

I heard lots and lots of that.

But beware people, one day, when you are craving for botox and facelift to look younger, I will still be young, huahahahaha *evil laugh
