HEAVEN Song by Troye Sivan ft. Betty Who

I am in love with this song since the first time I ever heard this. Honestly, I am not a big fans of Troye Sivan live performance (don’t get me wrong), but if I only watch his music videos and/or listen to audios I know he has a good voice.

This song tells us about Troye’s story of coming out. And how he realized at a young age that he was gay. So the whole songs is generally about the LGBT community and coming out. This song is so perfect.

The Teacher’s Diary Movie Review

“Such an inspiring masterpiece, a very unique and heart-felt movie. I cried a bucket tho. Still, better late than never.”

Teacher’s Diary [2014] is a Thai movie that told us about teachers who taught in the school that located in the remote area (in the middle of lake). The school was really old, made from wood and had to go by boat to reach the place. The school was very isolated and plain. Before he commanded to taught in that place, he already registered in the public school as a sport teacher but there was no vacancy, so he was commanded to teach in that place. That school was different from public. The school on the lake, there were no uniform, book, and the facilities were only blackboard and chalk. The school was far from the students’ houses so they had to be in that school for several days.

The teacher’s name was Song. He was an ex wrestler so he did not know how to teach well. He treated the student on the as the students from public school, so the students did not like him. But the condition changed after he found a diary that belonged to the teacher before him. The teacher’s name is Ann. She wrote every incident that happened in the school in that book. Because of the loneliness in the school, Song read every page on the book again and again and he became falling in love with Ann although they were not met yet.

3 Days in Bali

Is that enough for 3 days in Bali?

Tentunya akan muncul pertanyaan seperti itu jika kamu ingin merencanakan liburan ke Pulau Dewata hanya 3 hari saja. Sayapun demikian. Saat merencanakan perjalanan ini bersama teman, sempat terbersit pertanyaan: Cukup nggak ya untuk liburan di Bali hanya dalam 3 hari saja (itupun sudah termasuk waktu perjalanan dari Jakarta-nya, ya!)

Ada insight yang saya dapat saat menjalani liburan singkat di Bali ini. Pilihan. Pilihan apakah ingin mengunjungi banyak tempat wisata dengan waktu kunjungan yang singkat, atau justru ingin menikmati beberapa saja namun bisa berlama-lama di lokasi. Saya memilih opsi kedua.

Terlepas apa yang saya posting di social medias, jauh sebelumnya ada beberapa drama dan persiapan yang sangat dadakan yang terjadi. Pada awalnya, tujuan saya saat mengambil cuti adalah untuk mengunjungi Bandung, tapi lalu kemudian teman menawarkan untuk ke Bali. Akhirnya hati memilih untuk ke Bali. Nah, karena di cancel di last minutes, kebayanglah gimana kami langsung hectic nyari tiket pesawat yang ekonomis. Sudah dapat tiket yang ekonomis, kami masih harus mencari hotel yang akan menjadi rumah kita selama tiga hari kedepan, serta……….. mau ngapain aja di Bali.

Tips Menulis CV Sehingga Dilirik Oleh Recruiter

Kali ini saya ingin berbagi pengalaman (dan cerita) saya sebagai Recruiter dalam screening CV-CV kandidat yang masuk melalui sistem kami, via email, ataupun via post (duh!). CV menjadi salah satu tombak yang akan membuat diri kamu sebagai kandidat untuk dilirik, at least untuk tahap selanjutnya.

Mungkin pengalaman saya di dunia recruitment belum begitu lama, namun keseharian dalam bekerja saya kerap menjumpai puluhan hingga ratusan CV yang masuk. Tak heran sayapun bisa menemukan banyak orang yang berbakat dan sangat terampil; cocok dengan job requirement untuk posisi yang dia apply. Namun demikian, tidak bermaksud menghina, saya juga menemukan banyak kandidat yang tidak mampu ‘menjual’ dirinya melalui CV. Sangat disayangkan.

Just be real, ketika CV kamu tidak menarik atau sangat jauh dari requirement, sudah jelas para recruiter pun juga engga menghabiskan waktu mereka untuk melihat CV kamu. Masih banyak CV lain yang perlu dibaca.

Jadi di-postingan kali ini saya hanya ingin bercerita menurut perspektif saya bagaimana sih menulis CV yang dapat dilirik oleh Recruiter 🙂

Binge by Tyler Oakley

“I was taught that being myself was not only okay, but encouraged—and by being unapologetically yourself, you thrive and inspire others to thrive.” – Tyler Oakley, Binge

You probably too old for YouTube or come from other planet if you don’t know who Tyler Oakley is.

He is 26 years old video blogger and has been on YouTube for over 8 years now, and I think I already spend my 4 years watching his YouTube channel. His channel is different, you feel like having your best buddy around when you watch it. No matter how I feel, sad or happy, all of his videos just made my day. But I do understand that his videos are not for everyone.

IMG_20160316_142548Not only about his videos on YouTube, his journey is inspiring too. Only 26 years old Oakley already achieve so many young people could ask for (and I feel sorry somehow to my-24-years-old-self, lol).  The way he influence ‘his people’, charity, meet many famous people, just, ugh. Amazing.

As a fans of him, I was so excited when he finally launched his first book ‘Binge’. It is a compilation of Tyler’s stories, but those which he never shared online to his audience of 7 million in all his 8 years of Youtube. This arose curiosity amongst his fans and as soon as pre-order went up everything went insane. Even months before the release date, his book went to number one in various online stores. But you have no idea how long I have to wait to get this book in Indonesia, lol
