The Dawn Attack: Part 3

Hi all!
Our regional elections held earlier today, I have chosen the right candidate according his credibility, according to my conscience. Without coercion, without pressure. Although, I could say, this day has been marred by person who tried to do "money politics" immediately before the election. If you don't believe me, please, come to my area, location where I live, and ask to the other witnesses. I could have reported this to the Supervisory Committee in our area, but.. well, anyway, finally been officially announced that the candidates who doing "money politics" is lost. Early in the morning, messengers of the candidate's campaign team, come to my house.. she gave me money 20 thousand rupiah (cm 3 pieces), and I was pressed to choose candidate "P", she even showed me the list of family who were given that "hot" money. I was not slander, I talk facts, it was "an open secret" in neighborhood where I live. It's just that, people prefer to be silent. Almost all people who live in my neighborhood got the money. The amount varies, there are 20 thousands rupiah, there are 50 thousand rupiah, there is also a 100 thousand rupiah per each.
Fortunately, at that time I was at home with my sister, Rahma, so you can ask her as a witness too.

Here's the "money"... It's all "WEIRD"

The Dawn Attack: Part 2

Hallo. Here again I would like to share story with you. Still related with politics and my previous post The Dawn Attack
In my previous post, I told about dawn attack related with media. This time, it's still about dawn attack, but in the form of "money politics" or so-called "flying-envelope". The incident happened last night, I encountered alone with my eyes. You still remember, isn't it? in my neighborhood, there are some actors who became successful team for one Mayor City candidate? And the incident is still related to the actors. The story, this actors asked our secretary to make invitation letter addressed to around 15 people, consists of some public figures in my neighborhood. And incidentally, my brother is one of the figures who were invited. To our secretary, this actor said that the purpose of that event (which took place at his house anyway) just for gathering. Gathering? Who believe it?! Give me a break... we all know that this actor had cheated us through covert campaign, then, could we believe the mean of that event? C'mon, even a child could laugh for no logical reason of this actor

And sure enough, this actor mentions some main reasons why he invited people to come in his house, certainly without no purpose. And he said clearly what his purpose. He distributed envelopes filled with cash money to all those present. He claimed the money was coming from his personal money. He claimed because of his love for one candidates, he willingly gave away his money, in orderto make  people give their vote for the candidate. He even claimed that amount of money that he spent are less than his love for the candidate. What a tricky!!

Indonesia: The Simply Happy Things

These are simple faces. They are far from hedonism, but they believe that they are happy. They are far from government's embraces, but they survive.

The Dawn Attack

Hallo! Actually it's been quite long time I want to write this post, but I have too much forget than what I remember :p So, tonight, as long as I remember, I'll write little. I encountered this incident by myself. This is related with politics

At this time, the election environment gets hotter. Many legislative candidates popping up their campaign by large billboards that displayed in some protocol streets. Not only that. In fact, individuals who declared himself as candidate president in upcoming elections, also start popping up by many media. The main media that able to reach the masses, of course,are televisi and newspaper. Blessed, for those candidates who have ubstantial capital stock in the media industry, especially in broadcasting media and print media. Surely, they have space campaign that much larger than other candidates. Although the Broadcasting Commission and the Press Council had set and stated explicitly, that media should remain professional and neutral from any political. But nonetheless, there are some media that implicitly give the pro to one candidate (ie, they are the capital owner of that media). Besides, one of dirty tricks that they used (for those who have substantial capital) is ... dawn attack using media. If you ask, how about the example? I will answer through this story below.

Our family has long subscribed to local newspaper. Every morning around 7am, paperboy will deliver to our house. I know, that the company was not only rise one newspaper brand (like what we subscribe), but there are also some brand rised by the company. If there is promo for other newspapers to promote their new brand, they will inform to customer (either by an official announcement in newspaper, or from the paperboy). The funny thing is, sometimes, I found that our newspaper subscriptions replaced with another newspaper brand (which is clearly NOT a part of brand that raised by the company). Initially, I thought there must be mistake of paperboy. But, it did not only take once, twice times. But after I met discrepancy, I suspect a "bad thing" happen here. My feeling as a communication graduate sticking, especially since I'm studying political science too, specifically the science of political communication. I feel that it related with "someone" a.k.a capital owners. I tried to do investigation by myself, if the "newspaper-exchanged" incident is repeated again, so my guess could be said getting closer to the truth.

Aaaannndddd, my guess was right! The incident happened again few days ago! Even though I asked paperboy, he would not understand, because he just took from the agent. Interestingly, it turns out the paper show profiles one candidates clearly in some pages. So? What game this is?!

Indonesia NBL 3x3 Team Goes To Valdivostok!

Great!! Finally, Indonesia NBL 3x3 Team goes to Rusia, precisely to Vladisvostok. They will represent Indonesia to attend Pacific Open basketball tournament. But in this time there ware pretty shocking thing, what is that? The answer is, the 3x3 team left without 3x3 Wijaya Saputra (guard CLS Knights) participation. Ko Wijin can't join his team because he not getting permission from the club. Dunno about the reasons of CLS Knights. This is very unfortunate news. After all, he also took part in contributed his skills so that Indonesia 3x3 Team won FIBA World 3x3 Tournament in Tokyo in 2012 ago. This is the rooster  Indonesia 3x3 Team:
  • Vinton Nolland Surawi (power forward Garuda Kukar Bandung),

Scalloped Hijab Style

Hi! I wanna share photo below with you. I express little knowledge of make-up and hijab. Hijab style that I use here is scalloped style. You can practice for parties, weddings, or other semi-formal events. But never use any make-up and hijab style that "too-much" in sorrow/condolence atmosphere.

What I wore: broken white blouse, inner ninja, a brooch, and paris square drapery. For make up equipment: Bb cream, solid powder, soft orange lipstick color, mascara black volume, white eyeshadow, and white shading.

Playlist Today: It Will Rain

Hi! Now, I'll post lyrics "It Will Rain" a song from Bruno Mars that I loved. This song represents my feelings which bit messed up this time.. :')

lt Will Rain

If you ever leave me, baby,
Leave some morphine at my door
Cause it would take a whole lot of medication
To realize what we used to have,
We don't have it anymore.
There's no religion that could save me
No matter how long my knees are on the floor, oh
So keep in mind all the sacrifices I'm making
To keep you by my side
And keep you from walking out the door.
Cause there'll be no sunlight
if I lose you, baby
There'll be no clear skies
if I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds,
my eyes will do the same if you walk away
Everyday, it will rain,
rain, rain
I'll never be your mother's favorite
ah ,Your daddy can't even look me in the eye
Oooh if I were in their shoes, I'd be doing the same thing
Saying there goes my little girl
walking with that troublesome guy
But they're just afraid of something they can't understand
Oooh well little darling watch me change their minds
Yeah for you I'll try, I'll try, I'll try, I'll try
I'll pick up these broken pieces 'til I'm bleeding
If that'll make it right
Cause there'll be no sunlight
if I lose you, baby
There'll be no clear skies
if I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds,
my eyes will do the same if you walk away
Everyday, it will rain,
rain, rain
Ooooh Don't just say
goodbye, don't just say, goodbye
I'll pick up these broken pieces 'til I'm bleeding
If that'll make it right
Cause there'll be no sunlight
if I lose you, baby
There'll be no clear skies
if I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds,
my eyes will do the same if you walk away
Everyday, it will rain,
rain, rain, rain...

Black Campaign in Independence Day Celebrations

Sorry if this time I wrote bit thing that smells political. However, I learned lot about politics in college. Ok, start from one activities in my hometown. The event was organized by citizens to celebrate Indonesia Independence Day. So last month.  

Incidentally, I was one activists in my neighborhood. So, I have contributed as committee in some events. Before, we worked hard to raise funds from some events too. We also raise some funds from citizens, without limiting the amount. Until we collected sum money that we need for organizing event. Finally, came the day when event was held. But from some meetings which held before, there are some peculiarity person. When we were getting set up decorations for event which held in the evening, what we found were very miserable. How did not? The decorations which supposed to be filled with "knick-knacks" of Indonesia Independence Day (such as red-white flags, symbols of independence celebrations, etc) become an arena for displaying attributes of one political party. GREAT!  

There are one person who had power, which tried to occupy the event, and setting up into a black campaign for one Major Candidates. We've been trying to get rid some attributes (one of the most striking are the PICTURE of candidates). Whatever the power we had, it turns out "he" was set up the event such-that, and-so-did the event was aimed (did not else and did not instead of) to CAMPAIGN The Candidates! In fact, since beginning, "this people" volunteered himself became MC event. It turns out, the event led to "the mass hypnosis process". Well..... I thought this guy bit SICK! And the fact was true. 
I personally condemned party which hijacking public funds for benefit of the party!!
