bahagia itu sederhana..

mendengarkan petikan gitar tua di stasiun Bogor yang hiruk pikuk
melahap Arsitektur Yang Lain sampai habis setengahnya sepanjang perjalanan
menatap Jakarta yang berkelebat di jendela, sepeti potongan-potongan film yang acak
berpetualang antara tumpukan buku bekas yang di mata saya seperti harta karun
bertiga menunggu kereta di stasiun tua

bahagia itu sederhana..

Life Traveler - another story about journey

finally have free time or more likely some lazy time, before the last mid exam tomorrow..

just finished another inspiring book today, Life Traveler by Windy Ariestanty. I bought this book 2 days ago, glad my reading pace is not slowing down even after months didn't read any book :p

This book talk about traveling and more about the traveler themselves. Recommended indeed.. Well, because i always love these kind of book, for many reasons..

Youtube and Yiruma

i was going to share one of my favorite piano piece but instead found out about Youtube's new layout. It has neat arrangement, love it~

back to main topic, i want to tell you about a talented pianist and his beautiful pieces.

Yiruma is one of my favorites pianist. His real name is I Ru-ma, originally a Korean but he moved to London when he was 11. He is indeed talented and i love how his songs always ctelling 'stories'..

My most favorite piece:

River Flows in You by Yiruma

p.s: some people said this song featured as Bella's Lullaby on Twilight. the fact is, IT'S NOT. People should get their fact right -_-"

i also recommend May Be and Kiss the Rain. And his most popular album is First Love, it was released in 2001.


fun fact: “I want to give a music piece to an idol group like TVXQ.” - Yiruma

:D

Gili Trawangan adalah yang terbesar dari ketiga pulau kecil atau gili yang terdapat di sebelah barat laut Lombok, memiliki panjang 3 km dan lebar 2 km. (Wikipedia)

Fasilitas di pulau ini sudah cukup memadai, dari mulai penginapan, restoran, hingga pub. Namun suasana alami di Gili Trawangan masih sangat terasa, salah satunya karena dilarangnya pemakaian kendaraan bermotor di pulau ini.

tambah satu destinasi lagi on my must-visit-list :)

Kritik Arsitektur dengan Metode Deskriptif - ArtScience Museum

-untuk memenuhi salah satu tugas Kritik Arsitektur-


Project : ArtScience Museum
Architects : Safdie Architects - Moshe Safdie
Location : Singapore
Project year : 2011

ArtScience Museum merupakan salah satu bangunan di Marina Bay Sands, sebuah kawasan terpadu di Singapura, dibuka pada tanggal 17 Februari 2011 oleh Perdana Singapura Lee Hsien Loong. Museum ini merupakan museum seni-sains pertama di dunia.

Bangunan ini terinspirasi dari bentukan bunga teratai, merupakan karya arsitek Moshe Safdie.

Disebut sebagai "The Welcoming Hand of Singapore" oleh kepala Las Vegas Sands, Sheldon Adelson, ArtScience Museum ditopang oleh dasar yang berbentuk lingkaran di tengah, dengan 10 pilar yang disebut "fingers" (jari). Konsep desain untuk setiap jari menunjukkan berbagai ruang-ruang galeri skylight di "ujung jari" yang menjadi pencahayaan yang berkelanjutan untuk dinding interior melengkung yang dramatis.

ArtScience Museum memiliki 21 ruang galeri dengan total area 6.000 meter persegi.

Air hujan dibuat dan disalurkan di tengah-tengah bangunan, yang mengalir melalui atap berbentuk mangkuk ke dalam kolam yang mereflesikan bangunan pada tingkat terendah dari bangunan. Air hujan kemudian didaur ulang untuk digunakan di toilet gedung.

Selain bangunan ini dimaksudkan untuk mendatangkan banyak pengunjung dan wisatawan asing, tetapi juga untuk membuat Singapura menjadi bagian yang diandalkan dalam dunia seni dan sains. Dengan desain yang unik dan fungsi bangunan sebagai museum untuk seni sekaligus sains, nampaknya tujuan tersebut akan dapat tercapai.

Kawasan Bantaran Sungai

-untuk memenuhi salah satu tugas Kritik Arsitektur-


sketch based on this photo

Fenomena di Indonesia, negeri dengan sejuta sumber air, salah satunya sungai, yang sayangnya tidak banyak dimanfaatkan.. Sebaliknya, sungai menjadi terlupakan, bahkan dirusak. Hal ini salah satunya disebabkan oleh kecenderungan masyarakat masa kini yang tidak menjadikan sungai sebagai potensi, contohnya membuat bangunan yang berorientasi ke sungai, malahan bangunan tersebut dibuat membelakangi sungai.

Sebenarnya hal tersebut juga salah satunya disebabkan oleh kondisi sungai yang sepertinya semakin parah dari hari ke hari. Menjadikan ini sebagai hubungan sebab akibat yang tidak jelas yang mana yang menjadi awalnya..

Chinatown, Singapore


Chinatown Singapura adalah sebuah lingkungan etnis yang menampilkan unsur budaya Cina dan populasi historis etnis Cina yang terkonsentrasi. Chinatown terletak di distrik yang lebih besar dari Outram.

Sesuai dengan namanya, di kawasan ini sangat kental dengan suasana khas pecinan dengan bangunan-bangunan yang beraksitektur Cina. Terdapat beberapa bangunan yang menjadi bangunan utama di kawasan ini, biasanya fungsinya untuk beribadah maupun tempat diadakannya acara besar.


Selain itu, Chinatown Singapura juga dikenal dengan kawasan perbelanjaan berupa koridor-koridor yang dipadati oleh pedagang, baik yang permanen maupun non-permanen. Juga dapat kita temui mayoritas orang yang ada disini ialah warga keturunan Tionghoa yang menjadikan kawasan ini sebagai pusat komunitas.

Seiring berjalannya waktu, meskipun Chinatown merupakan kawasan tua, tidak menjadikan kawasan ini menjadi terpinggirkan oleh perkembangan zaman. Kawasan Chinatown tetap bisa mempertahankan statusnya sebagai salah satu kawasan yang memiliki peran penting di Singapura. Dengan arsitektur khas pecinan yang terawat baik, memberikan nilai lebih lagi bagi Chinatown.

Namun sayangnya, tampaknya status kawasan ini yang merupakan kawasan heritage juga masih kalah dengan pamornya sebagai kawasan perbelanjaan, di antaranya penataan pedagang yang di beberapa tempat masih terlihat berantakan. Dan juga beberapa signage ataupun petunjuk arah yang terhalang oleh tenda-tenda pedagang, menjadikannya tidak terlihat dan tentu saja menjadi tidak berfungsi.


Namun kawasan Chinatown di Singapura ini tetap patut diacungi jempol, karena sebenarnya kawasan ini bisa dibilang sudah sangat terawat dan difungsikan semaksimal mungkin agar tidak terlupakan begitu saja.
Patutnya hal ini dapat dijadikan contoh untuk kawasan bersejarah lainnya...

treasure


don't give me that look -.- this is probably the first time ever i am this addicted to one singer(s). It's reasonable tho, when you addicted to one of the best group in the world (and no i'm not exaggerating) and the most inspiring one. This is what i've been collecting for past 1 and half years, i consider these all as my treasure. one of the reason is because i bought it all* with my own money.

*except the red lightstick, it's from my cousin when she back from Seoul and JYJ The Beginning album (bottom-right), it's from ka Novi :)

discovering personality and the 'treasure' (take-a-peak)

such a bad blogger am I? leave my blog for too long, it's almost dusty.. *lebay*
i'm quite (actually, QUITE is not a right word) busy nowadays... exam, assignment, exam, assignment, exam, assignment, and so on~
oh well, 3 more to go! GANBARE~~

randomly blog walking, then i find this site http://www.quizbox.com/personality/test82.aspx
since i'm bored (bored doesn't mean i'm idle, i'm bored with these assignment ><) so i'll post the result here:

Your view on yourself:

You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

The seriousness of your love:

Your have very sensible tactics when approaching the opposite sex. In many ways people find your straightforwardness attractive, so you will find yourself with plenty of dates.

Your views on education

Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can.

The right job for you:

You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life.

How do you view success:

Success in your career is not the most important thing in life. You are content with what you have and think that being with someone you love is more than spending all of your precious time just working.

What are you most afraid of:

You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel.

Who is your true self:

You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.
hmm... most of it is true....
well, try it by yourself :)
