Hijaber goes to Bar..krik krik krik..


This is what makes me scared the most: invitation to go to the lounge or bar.
But i can't resisted it, since it was my high school 10 years reunion. So yeah, i collected my guts and figured what would i wear to that moment. Why?

Because I heard about one Indonesian celebrity that got expelled by an opera's usher in Singapore. She got expelled because the usher thought she was a maid. And yep, no maid is allowed to get in. I also knew a story of one blogger that always got nervous when she entered a lounge, that's why she always put beanie and scarf instead of hijab.

Alhamdulillah, i never got any one of that moment, except when i came to Canteen almost a year a go. People there stare at me strangely. Especially because some of my friends drink alcohol. For me, of course i don't want to get expelled. Of course i don't want people to look at me strangely again.

H-1, i called Kimie, one of my best friend in high school, asked her to come together there. Since i can't come with Daly, and i didn't want to come by myself. She agreed, then i feel relieved.

At D-day, i called Dida, one of my hijaber friend from high school. Asked her if she would come. And she said yes, but not for a long time. Then the nerves called back. How am i supposed to do when she left?

Fyi, Dida is way different than me. She's always been a nice and modest girl a long time before she wear hijab. She's truly a nice person and yes, she's one of my friend that encourage me to wear hijab. Me? I was a rascal back then, and still got it bit in me right now :p

Then i thought, what the heck with people. I want to meet my friends and have fun. If they would expelled me, then i just go home. Life wouldn't be so bad only because you got expelled from a reunion, right? *or..not, hahaha!*

Right when i entered 365 ecobar, that guts raised up. I saw my teachers whom also wear hijab. I saw Jua, one of my high school friend that came up with her hijab *never knew about it before*. Dida was also there and stayed until it's over. The committee didn't serve any alcohol drinks. They're purely make it like a gathering in restaurant, not in a bar.

Yes some of my friends surprised when they saw me. Especially they who haven't see me in a very long time. Most of them stared for quite long, then off they go politely. And for me it's fine. It's just funny how they treat me differently, in a good way of course :). The only awkward moment was when one of my friend, didn't believe what he saw, then asked to took a picture of me. I was like..well, okay. Hahaha..strange ;p

This is me-Jua and Kimie.
The reunion rocks! I had fun, and i believe my friends had too, thanks to Pandji and all the committees.
Anyway, I choose to wear a black long sleeve shirt with skeleton print on it, and stripes cotton shawl from Rock Inc. So even if i wear hijab, my old friend still can 'find the old me' through it ;)

Kopi Tubruk Untuk Hamil? Gimana?

Lagi agak angot-angotan berusaha untuk hamil, nih.
Mungkin karena memang lagi sibuk ya. Jadi bawaannya ribet mau beli ikura, nyarinya, jalan ke sananya. Walopun weekend kemaren sukses deh makan banyak ikan sama ikura juga.

Terus kemaren si Dieta, sumpah ya, bersyukur banget punya temen kayak dia yang rajin merhatiin, ngasih info lagi seputar usaha hamil.
Dia kirim e-mail tentang orang yang berhasil punya anak setelah 8 tahun menikah, setelah minum kopi tubruk.

Caranya, minum kopi tubruk 15 menit sebelum berhubungan suami istri. Katanya, kopi tubruk itu bikin sperma jadi lebih aktif. Orang yang berhasil itu katanya cuma sekali berhubungan suami istri di masa subur tentunya, dan langsung berhasil. Siapin kopi tubruknya secangkir aja, dan jangan lupa bikinnya agak lamaan. Biar sempet didiemin sampai dingin jadi sekali glek aja minumnya, nggak pake ala ala ngupi-ngupi cantik, ya. Warning: siap-siap begadang yaaa..karena kuat banget ini efek kopinya, hehehe.


Tertarik mencoba?
Silahkaaan :)

Kecolongan

Ini adalah pelajaran buat semua org yg mau berkomentar tentang keagamaan orang lain.
Saya harap semua yang membaca ini bisa belajar lewat kesalahan dan peristiwa yang saya alami.

Beberapa waktu lalu saya difoto untuk majalah memakai wardrobe pribadi. Ketika difoto, jeans saya terangkat dan terlihat lah kaki saya sebagian, hampir seperti pakai celana 3/4. Saya sudah minta pada stylistnya untuk memotong bagian kaki kalau diterbitkan.

Tapi pada saat terbit,permintaan itu diabaikan.
Jadilah sepotong aurat saya terlihat dan tersebar ke seluruh Indonesia.

Buat sebagian orang,ini mungkin dianggap perkara sepele.
Tapi saya melihat ini sebagai tanggung jawab terhadap agama.
Kepikiran apa kata orang lain? Pastinya.
Apalagi seorang yang berhijab itu rentan dibicarakan masalah ketidaksempurnaannya. Terlalu tertutup salah, terbuka sedikit juga salah.

Jujur,ketika majalah itu terbit,kepala saya pusing luar biasa. Tekanan batinnya berat sekali sampai saya terpikir untuk mengurung diri selama beberapa hari.
Tak terbayang komentar dan cemoohan orang lain tentang hal itu,meski diluar kuasa saya.

Saya bertanya-tanya,apa pelajaran yang mau disampaikan Tuhan dari kejadian ini?
Lalu saya menilik lagi pada mulut dan hati.
Mungkin ini teguran dari Tuhan tentang saya yang kadang juga suka mengomentari orang yang berhijab tapi kurang sempurna di mata saya.

Saya juga masih suka membatin tentang orang berhijab yang memakai legging ke kawinan.

Saya masih suka membatin tentang orang berhijab yang pakai baju berlengan 3/4.

Kini saya diberikan posisi yang serupa dengan mereka.

Hati saya hancur dan sangat sedih. Tapi karma itu memang ada. Sekecil apapun yang kita tanam,pasti akan sama ketika dituai.

Astagfirullah al adzim.
Semoga bisa jadi pelajaran untuk semua orang ya..

Brrrffffffffff.....

Been so long since my last update.
I am way too busy with work and some..feel not good about it.
Yet Daly is also being very busy and stiff..i barely can talk to him.
And at this point, i don't know why i prefer not to talk to other people
It feels so strange to talk even to your friends while you're in a super bad mood for weeks.
Aaaarrrghhhhh...!!!

Tenzaru soba - sushi tei


it's not a new dish. It's a half dish less from a portion of tenzaru soba. It was so large i couldn't put anything else in my mouth from the third of mouthful chopsticks.
I would order it later on for lunch with Daly then. It really was a portion for two!

Current Progress on Ikura

This ikura (salmon roe)'s kind of therapy is still going on on me :)
And i like the progress so far. I came back to Dr.Andon on November 20th (because Dr.Budi Wiweko went to America at that time). Voila, i got one ovum in 2,4mm! A very good progress indeed :)) My last ovum was almost 2mm before i got my period.

So yes, i think this ikura therapy is quite good for me.

A week later, me and Daly quite worry about eating raw food every day would caused me something if i got pregnant. So last week, i tried to tested myself. It's negative :)

Yet, i'm fine.
So I'm still doing it everyday with no pressure. If i got some time to buy one, i will eat ikura. But if i'm too busy, then i skipped a day :) I'm also have some friends who always asked me if i want to join them every time they planned to go to malls. God bless me much..

It's just a journey, so why worry? :)
