From the Blade Runner Movie

So what's the correlation between Blade Runner and Minimalism?

If you have seen the movie, it shows you about a robot who wants to have a heart. Who wants to feel, like human. Desired, wanted, and born.

His wish is so simple. In his advance world of technology, he wants emotion. A touch, a smile, a pleasing word. He had everything, and yet it's not enough because he needs affection. Then he started to hearing from another robot. An Artificial Intelligence built who whispered about everything he wants to hear. Even though its calming, it is not exist.


Blade Runner doesn't try to save the world. But it saves the tiniest part of the world who can make huge impacts: EGO.

And that's when I found a link with minimalism. From the perfection of Ryan Gosling's act, I concluded that the more we grateful for who we are, the happier we are. We don't have to seek the answer of our existence, even if the movie said 'people sleep better when they know who they are'.

Maybe we've lost a family and ask why.
Maybe one never knew who his/her father was, and ask why.
Maybe one never knew where is his/her origin and ask why.

All these questions, leads to anxiety. People are craving for answer instead of enjoying the minutes. Keep on asking and never got a reply.

The moment we accept who we are as we are, the moment we freed our soul from clutter that weighing us down.

It's okay to keep asking and finding the truth. But to ask without work on it, (go on a journey, collecting the clues and all), will only lead to sleep deprivation. You say you want to sleep better but keep on bothering your head with things you dont know how to find.

Minimalism is also acceptance. As what we are now, and what we have now.


Let me share you the example, about the definition of the life I dream.

I told you before about defining the goals first before taking the steps, right?

And here is a few of mine that I have successfully decode for the last couple of month;

I want to live the life which I can..

Have time for my own. In every day I have, I need time to invest for my future, praying is one of it. Reading, maybe I can use some tea and book in the afternoon before its dark.

I need to see the sunsets at least three times a week. Which means, I can't get trapped in the office for too long, no matter whether I still working nine to five or not.

Feel secure for my self, either its financially and socially. I need peaceful life from the neighbourhood, the families, whatever surrounding me. Want to feel wanted, and desired. Just like Joe.


Maybe there is more, but I still can't put it in the list because I'm not quite sure yet.

Its all simple things. And not including material or whatever. Because in the end, all we need is the comfort at heart. To have peace, and to leave in grace.


I had this one thing I wish I could have later..

The ability to look at someone's eyes, when those eyes, is everything I love in this world. Because for now, I couldn't make a contact when I talk to the eyes I admire. Why? Because they aren't mine.

About being a strong woman.,

My product(s) are a means to show people that we could and should be happy in wherever we are, in whatever the circumstances. As a single person battling with all the worryness of who am I gonna end up with while dealing with work and life, I must admit that I am strong enough to do it all alone. Including being obedient to difficult father and grandfather. I am strong. But at the end of the day, when I got home after a very long Sunday and clean my self with cold water.. I still wish that I have somebody in this house... to open the hair serum for me. :( Kenceng banget 15 menit nyoba buka tutupnya gabisa2

Back to my nir-faedah kinda post.

I was on page 184 when a good friend of mine texted and she suddenly poured her mental state. I was frozen for a moment before picking up my self and texted her back with some rational-encouraging words that I wish could help. This is a tough time for us, especially her, with all burden on her shoulder and the recent loss that we've experienced. It's not easy and never getting any easier, so we just have to face it now, embrace the fact that she's gone and feel the stings for a couple years. I finished two books today, one that I read from weeks ago, and one that I just read and not really have much information that I need. When I decided to go on the third book, only when I was halfway distractions started to come. Alright, I put my book aside and try to attend to the only thing I should attend: life. It's been a week since I shut myself in the house. Not going outside, let alone spoke to another human being. I feel weird doing that especially when I used to talk

Travel Through Time to Raijua

Menuju Raijua.. bahkan perjalanannya adalah petualangan tersendiri. Kamu harus terbang ke Kota Kupang (atau Waingapu), tapi saya memilih Kupang, lalu berlayar dengan kapal cepat selama 5-7 jam untuk menuju Pulau Sabu. Sebenarnya ada beberapa pilihan untuk ke Pulau Sabu dari Kupang, yaitu dengan naik pesawat Susi Air selama kurang lebih 55 menit dengan harga sekitar 1,3 juta, atau naik kapal Ferry lambat dengan waktu tempuh selama 12-13 jam seharga Rp 80 - 120rb per orang, atau naik kapal Ferry cepat yang berangkatnya malam dan sampai di Pulau Sabu pagi (jadi kurang lebih 8 jam juga). Kapal cepat harganya berkisar di 200rb-an, saya sendiri memilih naik kapal Cantika Express kelas VIP seharga Rp 262 ribu. Di dalam kelas VIP Kapal Express Cantika, tapi jendelanya terlalu tinggi untuk bisa duduk lihat laut Tenang, ada jaket keselamatan. Tadinya saya mau bawa sendiri karena takut menyeberang selama tujuh jam. Tapi rupanya yang harus lebih dikhawatirkan itu menyeberang dua jam
