Miss you so Much

Standard

sketched by ovan

I don’t know how to express my heart feelings

You’re always in my mind

I knew love can not be divided

Just one love to one woman forever

Do you think one love is the same as International Love ?

What does love mean ?

Would you like to explain it clearly ?

Do you think love is a companion ?

Do you agree if love is a devotion ?

 

Untouchable

Rightnow…

You’re what you are

I am yours you’re mine

we are living in the same earth

Without any limitations

We are family and together we can

As we are human then we build our community

Make it strong, green, and universal

Your words are your power

Do what you can do even it’s only  a little thing

Your country, our country and The world needs hero

Of course you all can make it happens now

Praise to the Lord, God and environment

Idioms and When to use “Among” and “Between”

Standard

photo by noorvan

Hi, in this time, i will translate many English idioms to Indonesian language.Let’s start with the words below.

a. touch and go = situasi kritis dimana sesuatu yang buruk bisa terjadi.For example, It was touch and go for a few days after the accident, but i think my grandmother is going to be okay.

b. hand to mouth = cukup hanya memiliki uang untuk hidup dan membeli makanan.For example,some seniors live hand to mouth every month because they lack a steady source of income.

c. strike up = memulai sebuah percakapan (begin a conversation).

d. hot under the collar = menjadi marah (get angry).

e. give way = memberi jalan

f. high five = salam kompak

When do we use “among” and “between”?According these words, we can use “among” if there are with three or more and not to use “between”.For example, The wedding attendees were to express a preference among five cleanup events.

My Old Personal Computer (Desktop)

Standard

Motherboard by Albatron PXP 35
Processor by Intel Pentium

Hi..i want to share my experience about assembling PC and maintaining/managing data.Based on/according to my experience, i prefer to build/assembly my PC by myself then i buy the spare part one by one. For example, i assembled my PC 5-6 years ago which i considered to use Microsoft platform in my personal computer.In addition to use Microsoft because i am familiar with the Microsoft operating system since i was learnt computer at the age of 12-14.It was when i was the first time in Junior high school.i am still remember how to use DOS, for example if you want to make a directory,you can type a md command and many else such as cd command, cls, chdsk, echo, autoexec.bat, and so on.In the past, i used Compaq and wearnes desktop pentium 386 and 486.

I suggest if you want to build your own PC desktop, try to buy the power supply at least 500 watt, external VGA card and of course it must be compatible with your own motherboard just in case you have enough money or budget to buy all of these items.

Referring to my data management, i used to partition or separate my programs that i’ve already installed in my personal computer.i usually allocate my software in drive c and the rest of my data/programs are storing in drive d,e or f.For now, i am using Windows 7 and XP for my operating system.And also, please don’t forget to back up your system and data after you completing or finishing the installment in your own computer.They could be stored in your external hard disk or different drive.

My IQ Score

Standard

I am so confused, so i decided to take an IQ test in the internet. I Just made my IQ score and the result is 113…hmm…what do you think?. In my opinion, i suggest to everyone including me to take a rest before taking the IQ test.At the moment, i am trying to narrow my choices about studying or choosing my ideal subject. I love Art, Photography, Economics, Music and Information Technology.

Hi..in this section,i want to share my photographs about how to take landscape and city life (street photography) based on my experience. Well, these are my tips within digital imaging adobe photoshop that i used to enhance my images. Firstly :

1. Prepare your camera and lens,i often brings wide zoom lens and tele lens in my camera bag, just  in case they are very convenient to my style of photography.

2. I used to capture landscape/nature photography by using CPL filter and sometimes ND filter.

3. Try to get some unique objects and get closer for the best result for city life photography (street photography).

4. If i want to change my images into black and white result, i usually tends to use gradient map,curve, bright, contrast, burn and dodge tool for my final best result in Adobe Photoshop digital imaging.

5. By pressing the compensation button, you can easily setup your ideal exposure. I sometimes make an over exposure for around +0.7 or +1.

6. For capturing or shooting the best results, i always set up/use NEF or Raw format.

Okay, that’s all my tips and see you later again…

Saat kau hujamkan kata-kata itu

Gelora semangat mendidih di dalam hati jantung sanubari

Ayo saatnya rapatkan barisan

Menjadi satu kesatuan yang utuh

Jacky My Persian Anggora Cat

Standard

Hi..it was a long time ago,when i was senior high school in 1996-1997. I had a Persian Anggora cat, its name was Jacky.As you see in this photo, i would like to mention his appearance.He had big blue eyes, black and white color and a medium tale.Basically about his habitat. My cat played and scratched wood with Jenny every morning. He also ate can food which i bought from the supermarket.He mostly slept on his bed and laid in the living room at night.On the other hand, if my cat did not recognize a stranger people for the first time, he usually ran away and screamed then faced away from the person.

Memotret Landskap & Alam, Lensa apakah yang Cocok?

Standard

Biasanya pada saat anda membeli kamera SLR/DSLR akan diikutsertakan juga dengan lensa atau dijual sepaket dengan bodi kamera. Pada toko-toko yang menjual kamera dan lensa-lensa tersebut memiliki banyak variasi untuk para pembeli memilih sesuai selera dan kebutuhannya. Lensa sangatlah penting untuk disandingkan dengan bodi kamera sesuai dengan harga dan juga bodi kamera yang anda pilih juga menentukan kualitas. Lensa yang anda pilih juga akan menentukan kualitas foto/gambar yang diciptakan dari kamera yang anda gunakan.

Nilai aperture di lensa penting sekali, tetapi dalam hal memilih lensa sebaiknya memperhatikan nilai terendah yang tertera di lensa, semakin rendah nilainya maka semakin lebar tirai lensa yang dapat dibuka, artinya semakin banyak cahaya yang masuk dan juga semakin cepat gambar/foto yang dapat di rekam atau di hasilkan dengan melakukan penekanan pada tombol shutter. Aperture di wakili oleh sebuah huruf “ f “ , semakin rendah nilainya maka semakin banyak cahaya yang dapat masuk dan cepat untuk melakukan proses pengambilan objek gambar/foto.

Sebagai contoh lensa 50mm dengan nilai f/1.8, dengan lensa tsb anda bisa mengambil/memotret dengan cepat bahkan memotret dengan handheld atau tanpa tripod sekalipun, dengan catatan tersedianya sumber cahaya/cahaya yang ada/tersedia, dikarenakan nilai f yang tertera mampu memberikan bukaan lebar pada saat tirai lensa menerima masuknya cahaya yang diterima. Begitu kira-kira penjelasan saya..mohon dikoreksi pemaparan saya.

a. Lensa Standar
Biasanya lensa standar ini atau lensa normal dalam format film seperti pada lensa ukuran 35mm, 40mm, dan 50mm, buat lensa terakhir yang disebutkan, lensa tsb sangat gampang digunakan dan cocok untuk segala kegiatan pemotretan seperti portrait,dll.

b. Lensa Zoom

Lensa zoom ini biasanya mempunyai banyak sekali rentang ukurannya,ada yg ukuran 18-70mm, 12-24mm, 10-22mm, dan masih banyak lagi. Lensa lensa zoom ini sangat cocok sekali untuk pemotretan landskap, alam dan nature karena mempunyai rentang sudut yang lebar.Beberapa lensa lensa tersebut juga cocok untuk pemotretan events atau street photography.

Baiklah..saatnya untuk anda mencoba mempraktekan lensa lensa yang anda punyai sesuai dengan minat fotografi yang anda sukai.

Currency & Money

Standard

Hi..this time, in this section..i want to share my opinion about how to convert your money/currency if you want to buy something with other currency.i have just made some note or writing about this case while i was staying in my room. For example, i want to buy a sun glasses which the price is 15 euro. How much money will i have to pay in Australia currency ?

Note : That you’re holding Indonesia Currency

1 dollar = Rp 9200

EUR/USD = 1.3021

EUR/AUD = 1.2474

In my opinion, i will answer this question

1 dollar = Rp 9200 x 1.2474

= Rp 11476.08

15 euro = Rp 11476.08 x 15 euro

= Rp 172141.2

AUD = Rp 172141.2 / Rp 9200

= 18.711 AUD

or

1 dollar = Rp 9200 x 1.3021

= Rp 11979.32

15 euro = Rp 11979.32 x 15 euro

= Rp 179689.8

AUD = Rp 179689.8 / Rp 9200

= 19.5315 AUD

 

So, my answers are 18 AUD and 19 AUD.You can pay for the sun glasses around 18 – 19 AUD.

PS : Maaf,kalau saya pakai bahasa Inggris,karena memang sesuai dengan studi saya yang memakai bahasa Inggris disini.Saya sengaja buat soal ini untuk semata-mata buat saya utak atik soal dan belajar sendiri.Kalau ada salah tulis dan pemahaman,harap di jadikan maklum.

Cheers,
