The World of Ghibli Jakarta Exhibition : Meet Totoro in Real Life!

Hi readers! I'm finally back to blog again after a looongg hiatus :D *maafkan ya karena kesibukan gue yang bikin otak mampet buat sekedar nulis-nulis di sini*. Well, di postingan kali ini gue ingin sharing tentang pengalaman gue ke exhibition The World of Ghibli Jakarta pada tanggal 31 Agustus 2017 yang lalu di Grand Ballroom Ritz Carlton Pacific Place Jakarta. Buat yang masih awam, mungkin bakal bertanya-tanya, apaan sih Ghibli itu?


Studio Ghibli
Singkatnya sih, Studio Ghibli ini ibarat Disney-nya Jepang. "Studio Ghibli, Inc. (株式会社スタジオジブリ Kabushiki-gaisha Sutajio Jiburi) adalah sebuah studio film animasi yang berbasis di Koganei, Tokyo. Studio ini telah menelurkan film-film animasi berkualitas sejak tahun 1984. Beberapa judul film animasi legendarisnya di antaranya adalah : Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Kiki's Delivery Service, Castle in the Sky, Grave of the Fireflies dan masih banyak lagi. Film Spirited Away bahkan diganjar Piala Oscar di tahun 2003 sebagai film animasi terbaik. Gak cuma filmnya yang punya value yang bagus, tapi gue personally juga suka sama soundtrack-nya. Terutama One Summer Day-nya Joe Hisaishi yang jadi soundtrack Spirited Away.

Sebagai penikmat budaya Jepang, tentu gue gak mau ketinggalan acaranya dong. Gue sampe bela-belain cuti sehari dari kantor khusus buat dateng ke acara ini xD. Gue pikir lumayanlah ya sebelum bener-bener bisa mengunjungi Museum Ghibli yang asli di Mitaka, Jepang. Rangkaian acaranya sebenernya udah mulai sejak bulan Mei yakni dimulai dari pemutaran film-film Ghibli di bioskop-bioskop.

Museum Nasional Indonesia : An Educational Day Out

"Real museums are place where time transformed into space." - Orhan Parmuk

It's summer time and everyone seems to be out-of-town due to Eid (Lebaran) holiday. So I think it was the best time to explore my own hometown: Jakarta. Me and my friend decided to take an educational day out by visiting National Museum Indonesia or popularly known as Museum Gajah (Elephant Building). For a person who always has a "thing" for history like me, I was very excited. We went there using free city tour bus that has been provided by Jakarta's government (big thanks to Pak Ahok, former Jakarta Governor who started this cool idea). Started from Istiqlal Mosque, we rode this double-decker bus. We managed to seat on the top level of the bus. Due to Lebaran holiday, this bus was full-packed with family who brought along their children. So you know, it was kinda noisy with children's nagging, curiosity and most of all : CRYING hahaha. I think the city tour bus is a good thing but it would be better if this bus has a guide that can explain a little about Jakarta's history or at least they can play an audio telling the passengers along the route. Because dude, so many children asking what and why, but their parents cannot give a clear explanation.

Jakarta during Lebaran week is like a heaven, I must say hahaha. The only time where no traffic exists anywhere. Another thing to be grateful is I get to see a rare view of Jakarta: A CLEAR SKY OF JAKARTA!

In total we spent almost 1 hour doing Jakarta sight-seeing tour using this bus. I didn't expect that the enthusiasm of people visiting Jakarta's recreational spots were still high. We planned to explore Jakarta from museum to museum but in the end, we got the chance to visit National Museum ONLY haha. We should come earlier next time then. So here we go, a little review from me about National Museum Indonesia:

Connecting the Dots

It's almost 3 weeks in 2017.
Happy belated new year, anyway.
I personally happy knowing that I survived through the storm in 2016 :")
Patience and faith are two things I learned the most during 2016.

I found no motivation to write on this blog, recently.
Work matters seem occupied my mind, my body, or even my soul (?)

It's been 2017 already and I'm still feel like I'm lost in life, somehow. I still don't know if my journey right now is the right thing and the best path for me. Steve Jobs once said, "You cannot connect the dots by looking forward, but you can connect dots looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future."



But my "dots" in life seems so errand and unconnected HAHA. Looking back, I majored in Science when I sat at high school. Going forward to uni life, I took Accounting as my major and Capital Market as my minor (oh God, look I AM DEFINITELY SO RANDOM); and finally here I am now: working in IT Audit field. I am not even familiar with IT things :")

Well, all I have to do is believing that someday all efforts in the past will make sense in the future - that somehow all my random dots will finally connect in the future :"). I will simply do my best, stay focused on the track and don't forget to pray; let God do the rest. Good things take time, Ni. Try to be happy and be grateful :))

P.S : curhatan dari seorang debu Asso yang sedang lelah diserang deadline bertubi-tubi :")

Brief Updates

It's almost two months since my last post. I've been neglecting this blog....for quite a long time. Sorry. But anyway I have few updates on my life (is my life somekind of TV series LOL).


Lulus probation
I finally passed probation period phew. Three months working here feels like A YEAR IN HELL *ups* hahaha. Intinya lega banget deh akhirnya resmi jadi karyawan tetap :") Bersyukur masih dapat kesempatan untuk bekerja dengan learning curve yang tinggi banget. I met so many people, discussed and collaborated with them. One thing I learned from working life is.... don't you ever ever be BAPER (bawa perasaan - read) or never include your feelings in work stuffs lol or simply being professional. Working life is much much cruel than school/campus life. The struggle is real. Challenge ke depannya di pekerjaan gue yang satu ini bakal semakin bertambah. Berharap semakin wise dan semakin mature juga buat menghadapinya. You can do it, Ni! Semangaaat :"D

Updates on... ehm... love life?
Ya masih gitu-gitu aja sih. I think I'm already at the point when I feel like... "dapet ya bagus, ga dapet yaudah AHAHAHAHAHA" *die in cringe* And uhm... For some moments now I think I don't believe in love anymore. Gila ini kalau di-dramain lucu juga ya. Ketika lo ngomong kayak gitu terus tiba-tiba kucluk kucluk dateng deh pria kece entah darimana making you believe in love again. AH BYE NI. BYE. Mabok bener gue ngetik hal beginian xD I mean siapa juga sih yang gak panik, ketika teman-teman seumuran lo udah pada mulai tunangan dan married, sedang elo aja pacar kagak punya xD Sebenarnya gue masih bertanya-tanya pada fenomena yang sedang terjadi belakangan ini : 90's kids are getting married. Are they married way too fast or is it just me yang ga laku-laku AHAHAHA I think I have to stop right away, before all of these stuffs disgust myself xD

23

Happy birthday dear my 23-year-old me!
Udah tua yak udah 23 aja :")

23-year-old selfie. Masih imut kan xD
This time I think I don't have too many wishes. I just wanted to be healthy, happy and be more grateful :"D Bersyukur karena masih ada yang inget dan nyelametin :") On this birthday I was super happy cos my birthday is celebrated by my new office mates. Pagi-pagi pas training gak ada yang ngasih ucapan selamat ultah. Gue pikir ya wajar ajalah ya gak ada yang tau baru 3 minggu masuk kantor bareng. Eh tapi ternyata pas lunch malah di-surprise-in. Thank you ya guys~ Yha walaupun tulisan kuenya malah ala-ala orang lagi anniversary (mau anniversary piye sih lah wong pacar aja gak punya *nangis di pojokan*)

RA Batch 2016
Kirain barengan tanggal ultahnya ternyata beda wk xD
Udah gapaham lagi...
One year older, one year wiser.
I hope that this year is going to be amazing and I want to grow to be a more matured woman. Tahun ini juga tahun pertama gue bekerja sebagai seorang profesional and I wish all the best for my job (target utama sudah pasti lulus probation dulu deh). All I have to do is do my best in everything I do and let God take the rest. AMEN!

Brief Updates

I'm back again. It's been two weeks since my first day to work as an IT auditor. So far so good (ya iyalah karena belum lembur gila-gilaan). All I did was sit calmly and listen to the training instructor. Terus juga sepanjang hari happy banget karena dapet lunch gratis + 2x snack time. Baru 2 minggu berat badan udah naik 2 kilo aje. I'm gonna enjoy this time to the fullest sebelum badai menyerang haha. Actually I'm coming back to the company as the former intern. I'm glad that most of them actually remember me :") And practically everyone is excited to see me. Working life might not be so bad then :") *pray hard*

Terus update yang satu lagi.. ceritanya gue dapet birthday present in advance nih haha. Sejujurnya gak nyangka banget bisa menangin lomba blog :") Setelah ngeblog lama dari tahun 2007, akhirnya pecah telor yah haha. Terimakasih untuk Phillip Securities atas hadiahnya! Intinya sih bersyukur banget karena masih bisa dapet banyak berkat :")

Grateful


Today I am officially starting my journey as an auditor (which means I am also officially ended my 5-months-hermit days). I know it is never easy to find a job after you graduated, but thank God I managed to secure a job within 4-months after my graduation. God is so good all the time :") I'm not gonna take anything for granted. Be grateful and maximize your own potential. Don't forget to pray. Let's FIGHTTT. And welcome "lembur" and "begadang" days.... :") Well, wish me luck! *demi bisa membahagiakan orang tua, jalan-jalan keliling dunia dan meningkatkan taraf hidup yeay xD*
