Reading Status : Completed


Cerita yang mengalir berdasarkan kisah hidup nyata Merry Riana ini sungguh menginspirasi.  Dari awal dia masuk ke Nanyang Technology University di Singapura dengan keterbatasan bahasa inggris dan uang yang pas-pasan karena perpindahannya yang mendadak dari Indonesia, hingga penghematan luar biasa yang harus dia lakukan, menahan lapar dan hanya makan mie dan roti seadanya hingga kini berhasil sukses menginspirasikan wanita di seluruh dunia dengan penghasilannya sebesar satu juta dolar di usianya yang ke dua puluh enam.  Cerita ini sangatlah menarik, karena dirangkai dengan kata-kata yang sederhana, detil namun tetap ringan mengalir menjadikannya bacaan yang santai namun tetap memberikan makna tentang arti perjuangan, lewat kedisiplinan yang tinggi serta kesabaran mengahadapi proses dalam kehidupan.  Tidak ada yang gratis di dunia ini, pay it forward or pay it later.  Dalam setiap hal ada harga yang harus dibayar.   Selain menceritakan tentang perjuangan Merry Riana, di dalam buku ini juga terselip kisah cinta Merry dan suaminya sekarang, Alva yang menurut saya begitu realistis, dan indah.  Karena mereka adalah partner yang saling mensupport dari bawah, saling menguatkan ketika mereka benar-benar berada di titik nol dan dililit kemiskinan.  Beruntung kerja keras mereka akhirnya terbayar, sekarang mereka mampu keluar dari zona kemiskinan hingga menjadi miliarder seperti sekarang.

Membaca buku ini kemudian membawa saya untuk melihat saya, sekarang.  Di umur yang ke 20 ini, apa yang sudah saya lakukan? Saat ini saya hanya mampu berjuang di tempat saya yang sekarang, melawan semua kejenuhan, dan keterbatasan untuk menempa diri saya terus berkembang meski dalam keterbatasan waktu, tenaga dan pikiran yang terkuras untuk sebuah kedisiplinan hidup di asrama, serta birokrasi yang ketat.  Menyesal? Tidak perlu dan terlanjur, mungkin ini lah jalan yang terbaik untuk saya, malah di asrama saya mendapatkan pelajaran-pelajaran yang penting dalam kehidupan.  Ke depan, semoga saja saya bisa lebih baik dari sebelumnya.  Melangkah maju.  Selangkah demi selangkah ke depan.  Bismillah.

The Labyrinth : The Review

" “If you can't have what you love, love everything you have - French Proverbs."
Alice, is a volunteer who spent her summer at Pyreness, Sabarthes Mountain at archeology things.  Then she start her journey alone to a mysterious place where she found a ring with an ancient pattern she cant understand.  Then she found herself searching by mysterious people. 
Alais, the healer and herbalist that write a journal and be a secret-safer from the civil war.  The journal is written with symbols and diagrams that Alice can't really understand.  The journal of Alais actually keep a secret from the buried, and there are people want it and hunt Alice.    
Then a nightmare haunt Alice, she have a vision being Alais that haunted by something that want her book.  Both of them, in past or in the present is haunted by same nightmare.  About a destiny that would connect them, or even a reincarnation?
I like the twist plot. And give a nice story to read.  To fill the relax time at the night or afternoon.  But maybe i dont really like the oldies setting because its seems not clear for me (i dont have the imagination about it) So i just cant imagine another things. 
I'm not finish it yet now.  Maybe want to pending to next time i feel really bored.

history from the buried

Mandor is one of place at West Kalimantan that have historical moment. A life witness seeing how many fighter must die, thousands leader in all West Kalimantan died on Japanesse company's hand. Because of politics. Its all about power. How people could kill their humanity for something materials.
The shocking news also shocking me, a student college die while demo to the council, Sondang, then farmers killed at Mesuji, because of palm oil company.
I still dont have clear idea for my future. I dont know will i gonna be fighter that may die in pride, or common people? sometimes i feel there is something in this life i must achieve, to be reminded, to be a story. But for that i also have something to suffers.
Can I? May I just want to life peacefully, but I know I must fight for all I want to. At least for myself, for my pride( but not for extreme way) and for people that always supports me.
