Fake It Till You Make It

Disclaimer : I'm not a professional movie reviewer, so I'll review from audience point of view. If you're agree with me, then yeay, we have the same taste. But if it's not, it's ok, as long as we can say what's on our mind freely and not hurting others. :)So, I've been watching a new Netflix series, title 'Emily in Paris'. It's typical rom-com/sit-com. Not that it's super funny, but it's a fresh series which portrays life of an American in Paris. I think we've seen enough young adult, reaching their quarter life, having the best times of their lives, feeling on top of the world, that they can achieve anything, but located in New York. This one is slightly different, it's located in Paris, a city renowned as 'city of love'. But still relatable because it's filmed based on American perspective. I think it's genius.I've watched the first 2 episodes and I'm captivated by Emily's words 'Fake it till you…

You Are Precious

I want to share a Bible verse that resonates with me at that moment and it still resonates with me now. And I'd like to believe that it would resonate to you as well.
Isaiah 43:4 Since you were precious in My sight,You have been honored,And I have loved you;
I received this Bible verse during a retreat in 2017. It's our last day and we're having a ceremony, thanking God for what we've got during the retreat and pray for safety on our way back. During ceremony, each one of us got random Bible verse and I got this. I can't help but crying.At that moment, I felt I was nobody, I was nothing. Why would God say that I'm precious ? I didn't realize that God loves us all. In His eyes, we're precious, YOU are precious. God created us for a purpose, that's why we're not born in vain.I know life can get tough sometimes, or a lot of times. But we have to remember we have GOD who is bigger than all of our problems combines. All He asks us to do is believe in H…

Terima Kasih, Pak Ahok !

Silent majority hanya diam? 
Mereka tidak diam, hanya berbicara dengan bahasa yang berbeda. 
Papan bunga yang mereka kirim lebih berbicara daripada semua kerusuhan dan caci maki yang dilontarkan orang-orang yang negatif.
Tidak bikin macet dan tidak perlu mengerahkan massa banyak-banyak, hanya tukang kirim bunga yang wara-wiri ke Balai Kota. 
Tidak bikin rusuh, karena bahasa bunga adalah bahasa cinta dan perdamaian. 
Tidak bikin takut, malah bikin senang yang terima, dan bikin girang tukang bunga karena dagangannya laris manis. 
Tidak perlu teriak-teriak, karena bunga berbicara seribu bahasa. 
Tidak bawa-bawa agama, karena bunga mewakili keindahan yang juga ada di semua agama. 
Tidak perlu buang uang milyaran buat kasih makan dan ongkos pendemo, karena bunga dipesan oleh masing-masing pengirim dan harga sudah termasuk ongkos kirim. 
Bunga di Balai Kota bukan sekedar bunga, itu adalah wujud perlawanan atas ketidakadilan dan keserakahan status quo. 
Revolusi Bunga. 
Bagaimana mengalahkan dukungan h…

Detik Terakhir Jelang Pilkada DKI Jakarta 2017

Sejujurnya, saya bukan pakar politik, tapi saya hanya warga DKI Jakarta yang turut berpartisipasi sebagai pemilih pada Pilkada DKI Jakarta 2017 yang akan dilaksanakan pada Rabu, 15 Februari mendatang.Saya sudah memantapkan pilihan saya sejak awal dan saya merasa tidak perlu lah menonton debat pilkada karena saya tau dan saya yakin dengan atau tanpa menonton debat pilkada, pilihan saya akan tetap sama. Tapi setelah 2 ronde debat berlalu dengan ramainya pemberitaan mengenai debat yang berlangsung maupun kejadian setelah debat, saya akhirnya penasaran juga dan memutuskan untuk menonton debat final yang diadakan kemarin malam (Jumat, 10 Februari 2017).Melihat bagaimana ketiga pasangan calon (paslon) menjawab pertanyaan, membeberkan visi misi dan program, adu argumentasi, sampai saling menjatuhkan memang memberikan hiburan tersendiri. Tapi dari debat final tersebut dapat terlihat kualitas masing-masing paslon.Paslon 1 sangat mementingkan karakter. Mereka mengatakan bahwa menjadi gubernur h…

[BLOG] GRADUATION DAY !

Yuhuuu, I'm finally graduated from university. I studied Communications and taking concentration in Public Relations. And today I'm officially inaugurated as Felicia Iskandar, S.I.Kom !I know people said that it's just an additional title to your name and yeah I do think so. Whatever major we took, in the end we don't always get jobs related to our major. And whatever grade we get, it doesn't determine our success.Anyway, this is another step for me and I'm glad for that. I wish my Mom could be here with me, but I know she's up there watching. :)
