What to do if your slow juicer is stuck

 As a minimalist living on my own, I often found my self in a difficult situation like this afternoon. My slow juicer was stuck and I couldn't remove the cap. So this is what I learn from today's struggle:


First, no matter how enthusiastic you are to slow juicing, don't put the slow juicer on hold. She's not like the guys on the phone calling you back and forth without you ever answer. This will harden the cap, and it will be impossible to remove. I tried everything includes crying until I almost give up.


Second, if it happens, even without you left the juicer for a while after juicing --usually this situation also applied if you juice something too hard or too fibrous like lemongrass and spinach-- maybe you need to take these steps;


Remove the cap, take it to the sink, and pour warm water into it. Not too hot you don't want to melt the rubber cleaner, just warm. 

Left it for a while, cry yourself out, swear if you must, but don't forget to apologize to God to whatever sins you've made lately.

Then try again. Use your full power to remove the cap, and if it still didn't work, then maybe you'll need to take out all fibers as you can by adding some more water until it flooded. 

The last step is, dry the body out, make sure everything is close just like your heart and put it back to the machine. Try run the 'reverse' button this time. 

After that, I guarantee you're good to go. Remove it and wash immediately. 

***

Juicing is a process of extraction, where you separate fibers from the water. The enzymes that are needed by the body will be flown into your cup, and ready to digest. This process is fun until you have them stuck. 

Yeah, universe always have a funny way to keep your emotion in balance, as if to say 'don't get too much fun, babe. You'll lose yourself'.

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

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

Definisi orang baik, dari alm Sri Wahyuningsih Djangko

"Mims, ngana kita mo tarek jadi informasi wa.. ( Mim, kamu aku rekrut jadi bagian informasi ya)" ujarnya suatu hari. Kalimat tersebut menjadi awal dari pengalaman kelas sebelas ku yang penuh dengan kesibukan non-akademis. Berorganisasi di OP (Organisasi Pelajar, atau OSIS) sambil berjibaku dengan lomba-lomba debat bersama klub debat. Entah apa yang membuatnya menarikku sebagai anggotanya di Sekbid Informasi, tapi yang jelas ku bersyukur sekali bisa dipilih sebagai partnernya. "Yuk, torang baku pangge apa e? Dorang bahasa so baku pangge 'aner' ... ( Yuk, nama panggilan kita apa nih, anak sekbid bahasa sudah punya panggilan sendiri yaitu 'aner' )" kataku di hari yang lain jauh setelah pelantikan. Dari situ tercetus lah nama Parti alias Partner-Informasi. Aku panggil dia dengan Parti, dia panggil ku pun dengan Parti. Panggilan itu bertahan hingga dua belas tahun kemudian, sampai akhir hayatnya. *** Namanya Yayuk, orang kenalnya dengan nama Yayuk
