Workshop dan Pameran Desain Hias Poci Teh Indonesia

Budaya merupakan hasil cipta, rasa dan karsa manusia yang meliputi seluruh aspek-aspek kehidupan manusia. Salah satu budaya yang sangat dengan kita adalah budaya minum teh. Bagi masyarakat Indonesia, minum teh merupakan suatu kebiasaan yang sudah ada semenjak zaman dahulu kala. Indonesia sendiri merupakan salah satu negara penghasil teh. Seperti kita ketahui bahwa Indonesia sudah menjadi negeri penghasil teh sejak zaman penjajahan.

Kebun-kebun teh di Indonesia sangatlah banyak, tersebar di beberapa pulau, seperti pulau Jawa dan Sumatera. Luas tanah yang dijadikan kebun teh di Indonesia berjumlah 120.000 hektare dengan total produksi sekitar 150 ribu ton per tahun. Sekitar separuhnya, yaitu 75 ribu ton menjadi komoditi ekspor ke luar negeri.

Dalam budaya minum teh, ada piranti yang menemani, seperti misalnya poci teh, yang terbuat dari tanah liat. Kebiasaan minum teh menggunakan poci teh ini berasal dari daerah Tegal. Teh diseduh di dalam poci dan ditambah dengan gula batu, kemudian diminum panas-panas. Poci teh ini sendiri sangat terkenal di daerah Tegal, Slawi, dan Brebes.

Untuk meningkatkan promosi teh, Mitra Edukasi Budaya merencanakan untuk mengadakan Workshop Desain Hias Poci Teh dan Pameran Teh Poci Indonesia. Acara ini bertujuan untuk meningkatkan motivasi generasi muda untuk mencintai budaya minum teh melalui kecantikan desain poci teh.

Acara ini akan diadakan pada tanggal 23 Maret 2013 bertempat di Museum Monas, Jakarta. Info lebih lanjut follow akun twitter @EdukasiBudaya atau add akun Faceboook Edukasi Budaya.



There are so many reason for us to break up or to stay together. Which reason do you want to hear it first, my dear?

Not in a good shape, because the influenza. And got a bad news about all subtitles being removed due to DMCA. It seems like my life is getting difficult. Blah!


Random #4

A few years ago I fell in love with you. So hard that I couldn't fix myself when I had to end it. Even after that I still had a little feeling which I prefer to call it as an admiration. But then, I suddenly felt nothing. Nothing like there was never a feeling.Well, I guess you're not charming anymore. I don't judge you. I won't. I just think that there's a reason why it can't be you. Whatever the reason that I can't even understand.

The King of Dramas

At first I decided to watch this drama because of Siwon. You know that I kinda don’t like him. Don’t hate me ELF. LOL. I just want to see if in this drama he plays the same character like his other dramas. And it proved that my prediction is kinda wrong. Truthfully I love this drama.

The theme of this drama: the production of dramas. I love it! I aways love behind the scene thingy. The process is more interesting than the result. That’s what I always believe.

I love how this dramas illustrated the relationship between the main point of drama production. The producer, the scriptwriter, the director, and the actors/actress. People always remember the actor/actress the most and seldom to praise people behind the scene, such as the scriptwriter, the producer, and the director. And I think this drama has succesfully told us how important their role are.

 The main character is the scriptwriter, Lee Go Eun, and I think that is absolutely right. If there’s no scriptwriter how can the story be told. And I just love how cruel the main male actor is, Anthony Kim. The relationship between the writer and the producer is somewhat typical, love-hate relationship, but I don’t think it’s a cheesy one.
 At one point they can hate each other and then they can work as a team. Voila! As you can guess, the relationship gets more complicated when there’s a feeling grows inside both of them. But so typical and still cute for me. At least.

And there’s our lovely Siwon as the snob Kang Hyun Min. Oh God, I always laughing my ass so hard whenever he shows up. I just can’t stand his facial expression since I’ve never seen him like that. He plays so good in this drama. His childisch and selfish character makes me love him. And it gets more fun when he meets Sung Min Ah. It’s just loveable one, if you don’t wanna call it as funny.
Well, from this drama I just learned about the world of drama production. It’s a cruel and competitive world, and at the same time intriguing! As viewers sometimes we don’t realize it because we only know the result, not the process. This drama tells us the story about it. I wonder why this drama doesn’t get high rating. Well, the rating isn’t important. The story is.


The Thing that We End Up Buy

Yesterday I was not in a good mood and I need to walk around. So I decided to go to mall with my bf. We ate and we talked about some stuffs and we just walked around the mall until we decided to enter hardware store. We talked about what we have to buy if we had house, looked at the price tag and tadaaaa~ we ended up buying this scented sachet, costed IDR 7.900 each. I chose lily and apple. What a random evening. :))


Quote #4

"The reason people hold on to memories so tight is because memories are the only things that don't change when everybody else does."

Flowers for The Graduation

Some flowers in florist and some that I bought as a gift for my friend's graduation. Well, it's been 6 months since I graduated. :")

Did You Know?

Did you know, you can quit your job, you can leave university? You aren’t legally required to have a degree, it’s a social pressure and expectation, not the law, and no one is holding a gun to your head. You can sell your house, you can give up your apartment, you can even sell your vehicle, and your things that are mostly unnecessary. You can see the world on a minimum wage salary, despite the persisting myth, you do not need a high paying job. You can leave your friends (if they’re true friends they’ll forgive you, and you’ll still be friends) and make new ones on the road. You can leave your family. You can depart from your hometown, your country, your culture, and everything you know. You can sacrifice. You can give up your $5.00 a cup morning coffee, you can give up air conditioning, frequent consumption of new products. You can give up eating out at restaurants and prepare affordable meals at home, and eat the leftovers too, instead of throwing them away. You can give up cable TV, Internet even. 

This list is endless. You can sacrifice climbing up in the hierarchy of careers. You can buck tradition and others’ expectations of you. You can triumph over your fears, by conquering your mind. You can take risks. And most of all, you can travel. You just don’t want it enough. You want a degree or a well-paying job or to stay in your comfort zone more. This is fine, if it’s what your heart desires most, but please don’t envy me and tell me you can’t travel. You’re not in a famine, in a desert, in a third world country, with five malnourished children to feed. You probably live in a first world country. You have a roof over your head, and food on your plate. You probably own luxuries like a cellphone and a computer. 

You can afford the $3.00 a night guest houses of India, the $0.10 fresh baked breakfasts of Morocco, because if you can afford to live in a first world country, you can certainly afford to travel in third world countries, you can probably even afford to travel in a first world country. So please say to me, “I want to travel, but other things are more important to me and I’m putting them first”, not, “I’m dying to travel, but I can’t”, because I have yet to have someone say they can’t, who truly can’t. You can, however, only live once, and for me, the enrichment of the soul that comes from seeing the world is worth more than a degree that could bring me in a bigger paycheck, or material wealth, or pleasing society. Of course, you must choose for yourself, follow your heart’s truest desires, but know that you can travel, you’re only making excuses for why you can’t. 

And if it makes any difference, I have never met anyone who has quit their job, left school, given up their life at home, to see the world, and regretted it. None. Only people who have grown old and regretted never traveling, who have regretted focusing too much on money and superficial success, who have realized too late that there is so much more to living than this.” (via: susannacole) :")

Just Saying

“If a young woman in middle school or high school hangs up a poster of Barack Obama in her room, this is seen as acceptable. It’s fine for women to admire men and want to be like them.

If a young man (the same age) hangs up a poster of Hillary Clinton in his room, this is seen as odd (maybe even troubling, is he gay? Oh no!).

Society tells us young men can’t think of women as role models, unless they’re a family member, whereas young women can admire and seek to emulate anyone, regardless of gender.

If you’re a young man, and if you have a poster on your wall with a woman, she had better be half-naked in a bikini, even if the Ronald Reagan or Gen. Patton poster next to it obviously features the man fully-clothed.

Young men are not to taught to think of women as role models. They are taught to think of them as either family members or sexual objects. There is no other category presented.“ (via: there-was-a-girl)
