    How to spot twitter users in a food court 

    Twitteratis living in twitterville is a different species than blogger;

    • As talkative little birds, they chipper (tweeet….tweeet…) instead of talk.
    • They are very effective in saying things, usually less than 140 characters.
    • They use http://tinyurl.com when the story gets deeper and longer.
    • They have short attention span, in a nice positive way.
    • Refer to point above, they love helping each other. Ask them a question and the answer will come less than a minute.
    • “We’re DM-ing” means “it’s our secret”
    • When talking to you, they usually say “at” (@) before “your name”.
    • They love hugging to cheer you up when your down, say “YAY!” when happy and look like this XD when being excited
    • They seldom update their blogs, but tweets within minutes in their daily life
    • They kind, fun, lovable, and don’t use rude language
    • Unless they really have to

    It was my third time going to a Tweet Up (Twitter Meet Up). Lots of new faces. Real faces, not merely tiny user pics with less than 140 characters tweets. Honestly I was nervous, but it was unnecessary. I was ecstatic to finally shake hand with my Kemoceng War partner, @kapkap, who then gave me the pin which was made by @rampok and @puspa, based on the logo @kapkap designed.

    Glad to finally see @aulia and @savitri again after our last tweet up like forever ago.

    I am terrible in remembering people’s name, so I made this on spot, the sitting arrangement to make sure I got their name correctly.

    @anima @rampok @patvandiest

    @aulia @savitri @dalih @asil @nanashambles

    @chibialfa @kapkap @puspa

    @kapkap also showed me the original art work of twitteratis member she did long time ago. It’s still in beta, but hopefully it will never finish by the fast growing of the member.

    *Update [@kapkap’s writing about her 1st impressions vs reality towards all twitteratis member]

    Beside recording the Henshin slow-mo, riding the ferris wheel was the highlight of the night.

    I went in total analogue and left my digital camera home. It was amusing to see how easily most of them amused to see the 35 mm rollei. @aulia didn’t, tho…

    @aulia : “Don’t they have this thing called digital camera these days?”

    @chibialfa : didn’t know how to explain why film is not dead yet in less than 140 characters 😛

    Update: Yay! The results from my rollei finally came up. Added in the tweet up set and rollei set. I accidentally pulled the film too hard that the film was ripped inside. But Aldo fixed it, and nothing wrong with the result (phew). Uh wait, everything was wrong with the result; under exposed, over grain, weird colors. But isn’t it the spirit of lomography? (or so they say) 😀 😀

    this one is my favorite

    this one is my favorite

    Of course it bothered me a little since I can’t upload anything while @patvandiest already make an album in facebook and @anima uploaded the hilarious henshin video. I can’t wait to see more photos from @asil’s camera tomorrow. (Update: add new photos from @aulia and @asil facebook)

    Nevertheless… it was a fun and romantic night. Looking forward for the next one.

    +++

    Aldo : “Was it fun?”

    @chibialfa : “Yup! Like meeting others that are like me…”

    Aldo : “In the 80s, you would have been crazy about nge-break thing, and tweet up would be like…”

    @chibialfa : “KOPI DARAT :P”

    Chasing flares 

     

    Catching Flares 05

    Catching Flares 05

     

    It was almost 5 pm on the second day of Lebaran, and we were laying lazily in his front yard. The sun was almost set but it left trails of golden flares everywhere. I was too lazy to get up and get my camera, fortunately he wasn’t. I learned new word that day, it was “rim light”.

    These were taken by our Canon 400D. I tweaked the colors using match colors and took the source from other photograph (I learned it from here). It was quiet predictable, pinkish yellowish dreamy mood, but I think it suits best.

    The moment didn’t stay very long. As soon as the sun disappeared behind the clouds, we had to say good bye to the magical lighting.

    challenge, lebaran rituals, and all that jazz… 

     

    colorful balloons from lebaran last year

    colorful balloons from lebaran last year

     

     

    Here’s a challenge;

    Brief: Write/create an engaging Happy Lebaran & Mohon Maaf Lahir Batin E-Card using none of the elements below;

    • Ketupat
    • Lebaran festive cakes
    • Mosque
    • Bedug
    • People doing shalat ied
    • People wearing wardrobe in moslem style
    • Anything related to arabian/far east culture (i.e. dates, camel, desert)

    Target audience : a person you dislike most

    Single minded message : sIncerely asking for forgiveness

    ***

     

    mudik last year

    mudik last year

    Ask me where my favorite place is, and one of them would be my house in Bandung during a day before Lebaran. It always has the smell of fresh cooked ketupat, gulai, rendang, mixed with the fragrance of fresh picked flowers.

    The rituals are pretty much the same each year. Shalat Ied, morning breakfast with lebaran dishes spent with the whole family after taking a moment forgiving each other, followed with visiting to relatives.

     

    During the afternoon, not only I would feel extremely full and can’t wait to change my good dress into something more convenient, usually it’s the time when we would be looking for alternative dishes beside ketupat.

    Although, my mom’s rendang, sayur AC, and gulai are the best indeed.

     

    chibialfa and turtle ballon

    chibialfa and turtle ballon

    I have my ‘side’ rituals. This is me from Lebaran last year. For the last several years, I always look for the balloon seller after doing shalat ied, and buy one balloon creature. At first it was only for fun, but then it became one of rituals. My mom always end up help me looking for the ballon seller and even give suggestion which creature I haven’t got therefore should buy. This turtle was my purchase last year.

     

     

     

     

    empty street only happens during Lebaran

    Another rituals my husband and I always do is going downtown after the morning breakfast, for the sake of enjoying Bandung streets being empty. This is the picture of last year from one of the busiest street in town. I am planning to do the same thing this year, bringing my holga camera and see what interesting picture I can get out of the empty streets.

    In between holiday blues, there are; traditions, rituals, and annual breaks. They are created to keep our sanity exist. At least I believe so 😉
