CINDO means "Cantik" in Bahasa Indonesia, or "Beautiful" in English. The word "CINDO" taken from bahasa Palembang. A City in Sumatra island which is produced textile origin of kain ikat Palembang or well known as kain Pelangi, which is as well inspired the pattern of Cindo BAG, the handmade ethnic backpack.

old and new, past and present

Can you see which is old and new ones? which is past and present times?
The left side is my room since my first time moved. More spacious indeed. And the right side is my room recently, after been filled with stuffs. I do like my present room I rented in Surabaya. For now it almost 2 and half years!! Due my family matter, I barely have no room when I got home to Bogor. It just, I do like to create my own space.. Thus, the left oldies ones was captured by my previous analog stuff Nikon F90x. Really great camera. It actually my cousin's, he kindly let the clumsy me borrowed this rookie Nikon for school project few years ago. I have it for a while. But the printing fee was such a shiiiit!! So I return the rookie Nikon and buy the instant Olympus.. But I really miss the rookie Nikon. It really put the perfect colour that any sophisticated camera couldn't do, right?

kantong - kantong!!

Yang jahit-jahit iseng kemaren dijahit ke kantong ungu. Trus jadi kayak gini deh!!
Berhubung blom punya tas kamera, jadi kantong unyu ini dijadiin tempat kamera. Dalemnya dikasih lapisan spon biar si olympus bisa istirahat dengan empuk. ^^

Anyway, tgl 27 kemaren bokap ulang tahun, cuman beda 3 hari ama gw. Entah kenapa gw jadi beli majalah Tempo. Buat gw Tempo itu identik banget ama bokap. Gw ketularan seneng baca Tempo gara-gara bokap rutin beli Majalah Tempo. Buat gw, Ini majalah udah ngerangkum semua berita yang aktual selama 1 bulan-an itu. Keren banget dah, walaupun emang identik ama bacaan bapak-bapak. That's it. Selamat 1/2 abad ya, pak!! :)

Narsis dikit :p

BTW, lagi suka jahit-menjahit nih. Pengen belajar jahit pake mesin jahit, tapi lagi tergiur les knitting di mall sebelah yang lumayan terjangkau. Tapi apa daya riset tugas akhir menghadang, rasa kebelet lulus menerjang dan keinginan berhedon-ria menghimpit *eh

Segini murah gak sih??

Penampakan hasil maen-maen benang di sisa kain celup kemaren buat aplikasi di kantong kamera. Kantongnya masih di pak penjahit, jadi tunggu postingan berikutnya yaa!! :)

"BE super excited, BUT don't expect" :)

What it means to you?

Well firstly, let me tell you that it's not a writting with religious view. It's not that I'm a religioustalk-anti-person. I wear hijab afterall. It's just I want to talk that I think have to be concerned. It's about hijab.

Back then, first time I wear these 'commitment', it was in Senior High School, in the end of second year. That year 2006 hijab is already a common look. (You can say it is, compared to those 80's and 70's era, right?) My school actually give the very strong influence for my decision. I can call it as the most religious state High school in my town. Yes, my school is not an islamic shool, but the atmosphere, the rules, and people in it, fully giving support of this positive habit. Back to those time is the time that I really learn about Islam that much. And voila!!! Me, known as ignorant, careless, messy-short-hair and this childish-never-grown-up girl wore those holy veil. My biggest motive is the friend's word of mine. She said that whoever 'balig' girl has to wear hijab. Otherwise every sheet of her hair seen by 'non-muhrim' is a SIN. This friend is not those silent girl with strong religious view and wear those long and baggy hijabs. But, she wears hijab and she's also big fan of FI racing car, like smart humour so much (which is why she's so smart and funny in debating class) and wore those rookie converse. This straight-forward friend told me when I'm a brand new high-school girl. And her words is like humming in my brain for like along the year. And I think. Oh my God! How many pray moment I miss? How many time I lies? And how many time I hurt my Mom?? All of those little, unimportant things are SINNED!! I tell you, I was that type of person who always make a very loooong think before decided something. And I like to wait in a very perfect moment for a very perfect decision. But those often make me decided nothing in the end. And this time I can't wait any longer!! I still wait for a good time though. My transformation began in the first day in second semester of my second year. My bf, Anggi, surprisedly do the same. Hehe.. My thought that time, At least my hair is no longer a burden for me. Those what I was thinking behind my decision. It's just that silly thought.

I learn more about hijab after wear it. My mom who also wear it (she wear it since college in those very 'hectic' era, where hijab isn't as free as now or moreover getting trend) told me this superb advice, that you can be yourself while wearing hijab, improve yourself to be better along your journey, where mistake is as natural as before since you just try to be better after, but "Once you wear it, You won't never ever took those hijab off!!". As time goes, me who honestly a very stubborn person, accept some of my friend's critiques and advices about my careless lifestyle. How I can be a better person. For the sake of this cloth wrapped around my head. I learn that though I seem always see the world in easy way. I just can't be easy with this one. I learn that the holy cloth isn't just a commitment. It become an important need for a girl and it become a real identity.

Well, I admit I still run in the frontyard without hijab (and run back when boys appear), sometimes miss my pray, and in-coincidentally hurt people with my careless words. But I promise everytime to be better everyday. It just "nobody is perfect" is true words, right?

Thus, I can't understand about weird symptom in this hijab era lately. In my country, Indonesia. Hijab now getting a trend. Everyone wearing hijab. Even it get a really special place in fashion runaway. My friend who seems unlikely wore hijab, or even getting seen to take a pray, even sound her voice to wear hijab. And more celebrity wore hijab in ramadhan month. Well, that's acceptable enough. Even, it's one of good point of this trend. But, the most freaked me out are those who wore hijab but seems not taking it as a real matter. Come on!! It's a cloth with your religion embossed there. I don't mean everyone with hijab is an holy angel. We are human. And we're just clarified our real identity trough this cloth. It's how we are, and how we want to be performed. Don't take it lightly, guys, but do warn us, if we make mistake or slipped away.

The 'those people' which I mean Those who committed wearing hijab in their daily life, but still spreading their so-called-cute photos with long hair or even minimum clothed on. Do you want hijab as your identity or it just your statement-style, huh? Those who seen with hijab, but still walk out meet her boyfriend with short and loose tee. Errggh.. You know you're not halal for him until the bond get official , right? And so many more..

Okay maybe, it's actually subjective and selfish opinion. I never take off my hijab in front of boyfriend is bcoz I don't have one. And I never get my photo showed off is bcoz I'm not as confident or as pretty as you. I'm not that perfect on my side too. Like I said, I still miss pray, still play roughly, bla bla bla.. It just if the so-unlikely-rough-untidy girl like me treasured this simply cloth, and take care of it hardly as careful as I can, why you just easily take it off in anytime you want. It just, what that hijab means to you, girl?

PS: Sorry for the poor English!! No offense, girls. Do warn each other, okay?? :)

camera camera camera!!

Sony NEX-C3

Olympus EP1

Panasonic Lumix seri GF1

ga sekedar pengen, tapi butuh. Banget!!!
Pilihan gue jatuh pada kamera-kamera dengan interchangeable lens ini. Karena gue pengen yang praktis aja tapi kemampuannya kayak DSLR. Mennn.. udah gak jaman kali kamera gede yang ribet-ribet gitu. *ditabokfotografer* Tapi berhubung gue lagi tidak memfokuskan diri dengan dunia perfotografian, jadi bolehlah gw pilih kamera-kamera cantik yg gak kalah ama DSLR ini.. Hoho.. Tapi masih bingung ini beli yang mane yah?? --" *gaptek* *emangdasar*

Additional : Now, I've been thinking and researching more, and I think the olympus thing is the best choice. Hehe.. The problem now, this thing need money and how can I afford this??
