17 Million Second with You

Foto ketika masih single :))

Alhamdulillah wa syukurillah, atas semua karunia, rezeki dan kesempatan dari Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala. Tepat tanggal 17 April 2017 pukul 10 pagi, Bapak Sendy mengucapkan akad nikah di halaman rumah, Banjar. Halaman rumah yang menjadi saksi Ibu Siska berenang di kolam ikan saat kelas 3 SD, saksi nakalnya Siska suka jahilin adik pertamanya, Wulan saat kelas 1 SD. Menjadi saksi berubahnya kolam ikan menjadi kebun selada kesayangan ayah. Yang menjadi saksi banyak peristiwa sedih, haru, bahagia. Halaman yang menjadi tempat peristirahatan terakhir Ayah Wawan.

Bangga sekaligus haru, sedih, bahagia bisa menikah walaupun tanpa Ayah, tanpa wali yang lengkap dan seharusnya. Sudah putuh sejarah wali untuk Ibuk Siska sampai yang menjadi wali ditunjuk dari Kantor Urusan Agama, yaitu Kepala KUA Kecamatan Purwaharja itu sendiri :)).

Akad nikah yang disaksikan Mama yang tak berhenti air matanya, yang terus menunduk. Entah menangis bahagia atau berduka atas ketidakhadiran Ayah di situ, di tengah-tengah kami. Tangisannya tak berhenti sampai prosesi sungkem dilaksanakan, Ibu Siska juga jadi sedih huhuhu.

Seminggu setelah menikah, Ibu Siska dan Bapak Sendy langsung berangkat ke Jogja menempati rumah sederhana di daerah Maguwo. Bermodalkan barang-barang boyongan dari kosan masing-masing, perjalanan kami berdua sebagai suami-istri dimulai.  Yang mungkin sebenarnya adalah awal dari seluruh kehidupan kami.

Lyfe di Jogja

*judulnya biar kayak remaja jaman now*

Tanggal 15 Agustus 2017, Ibu Siska dinyatakan hamil 4 minggu! JENG JENG JEEENG ULAH SIAPAAAA INI SISKAAAAAAAAA, begitulah reaksi tetangga kalau ini terjadi di sinetron. Mengucapkan syukur kami berdua sebagai suami-istri dimulai. Berjanji untuk menjaga titipan adalah yang seharusnya dilakukan Ibu Siska. Tapi Ibu Siska malah seringnya muntah-muntah, gak enak makan, gak enak tidur, sakit pinggang, sakit punggung. Enggak happy, bawaannya bete melulu. 

Di bulan kedua, atau sekitar awal 7 minggu, Ibu Siska sudah mulai happy lagi, sudah makan enak lagi, sudah bisa nyapu rumah sambil ngomelin Bapak Sendy yang suka lupa jemur handuk selesai mandi. Mulai lagi mengurus komunitas GNOME yang sejak Maret 2017 jarang bikin acara kumpul-kumpul di Yogyakarta.

Puncaknya, tanggal 16 September 2017 Ibu Siska mengadakan acara Ulang Tahun GNOME ke 20 dan Pesta Rilis GNOME 3.26 di Kantor Bapak Sendy.  Bolak-balik Maguwo-Kotagede untuk ngambil perlengkapan acara. Padahal minggu itu juga Ibu Siska naik turun tanggal lantai 4 Fakultas Sains dan Teknologi untuk ngajar di Ruangan 408. Minggu yang sibuk tidak membuat Ibu Siska kehabisan energi, malah makin semangat karena tidak merasakan gejala tidak biasa.

Satu Minggu setelah acara selesai, sakit punggung sejadi-jadinya dirasakan. Dibawa tidur tapi tak berakhir lelahnya. Beberapa hari setelahnya, terjadilah spotting. Awalnya hanya flek warna cokelat, lama kelamaan jadi merah juga. Kendati menenangkan diri tapi Ibu Siska cemas juga karena 5 hari setelah masih terus mengeluarkan darah, malah yang ada mules-mules.

Hari Jum’at 28 September 2017 pagi, Ibu Siska pergi kontrol ke klinik Ob/Gyn di Rumah Sakit Akademik UGM. Sudah diwanti-wanti untuk bedrest alias total gak ngapa-ngapain cuma boleh ke kamar mandi saja.

Malamnya, pendarahan makin menjadi.

Pukul 9 malam, pesan GoCar ke UGD RSA UGM. Sejam kemudian, setelah mules hebat selama 1 jam. Janin berukuran kepal orang dewasa keluar, tak mampu bertahan.

Berdamai

Butuh seminggu untuk bisa berdamai dengan hati dan pikiran, Bapak Sendy juga masih murung semisal diminta cerita di mana menguburnya, bagaimana sebelum dikuburnya, udah ada bentuknya belum dll. Sampai tulisan ini dimuat,  Ibu Siska belum sanggup mengunjungi makamnya yang sebenarnya ada di sekitar tanaman oyong yang ditanam Ibu Siska juga. Hari ini, 17 juta detik Ibu Siska dan Bapak Sendy bersama-sama, selama itu pula kami masih saling berusaha mengerti satu sama lain, berusaha tak perlu mengungkapkan hanya lewat suara dan bahasa. Emang bisa?

Bapak Sendy Goes To Tokyo

TOKYO!

Akhirnya ya, setelah bertahun-tahun enggak  cap paspor, tanggal 19 Oktober besok jadi terbang ke Kuala Lumpur lalu sambung ke Tokyo lewat Bandara Haneda. Bapak Sendy berangkat ke Tokyo. Fiuh.  *padahal tahun lalu dia habis dari India dan Vietnam, cih!*

Buat yang bertanya-tanya ngapain dia ke Tokyo, lha tinggal tanya sendiri gih :)). Ceritanya, materi Bapak Sendy keterima di acara opensource yang akan diadakan di Tokyo, Jepang. Nama acaranya openSUSE.Asia Summit 2017. Setelah sebelumnya Bapak Sendy juga yang menjadi volunteer coordinator di acara openSUSE.Asia Summit 2016 di Yogyakarta.

Pesiapan menuju ke Tokyo bukan persiapan yang sebentar karena menyangkut urusan visa, biaya perjalanan dan segala kebutuhan musim gugur. Bok, dia gak pernah nyobain suhu 13 derajat celcius  di Indonesia, apalagi sekarang ini sedang musim peralihan kemarau ke hujan di Yogyakarta, otomatis sehari-hari bisa sampai dua puluh derajat celcius.

Yasudah, selamat travelling ya Pak. Semoga perjalanan ini menjadikan kamu manusia yang semakin bersyukur, dijauhkan dari kufur nikmat. Semoga menjadi perjalanan yang penuh berkah. Ku tak minta oleh-oleh, cukup pulang dengan selamat saja, hihihi. 

with love and warm hugs,

your ini-handuk-dijemur-please-jangan-maen-simpen-masih-basah-di-atas-kasur wife :*

 

Perempuan Sadar Teknologi – PASTI

Dunia kita, aku, sebagai lulusan SMK jurusan Teknik Komputer dan Jaringan, kemudian kuliah jurusan Teknik Informatika dengan skripsi tentang programmer behavior, menjadikan aku dan kita menerima informasi dengan cepat, terkini, terbaru. Tentang banyak teknologi yang diperbaharui, hampir tiap minggu, bahkan itungan hari.

Semua teknologi itu memang pada dasarnya supaya kehidupan kita lebih baik. Contohlah saja ibu-ibu sekarang memakai mesin cuci dengan satu klik dari mulai mencuci, bilas sampai mengeringkan. Semua itu takkan terlaksana tanpa campur tangan teknologi.

Tapi, keadaan kita sekarang yang informasi tersebar dengan cepat, membuat kita berfikir bahwa pemikiran kita paling maju, teknologi kita terdepan, menjadikan satu lapisan masyarakat terlewat.

Itulah ibu-ibu. Mereka adalah lapisan yang terlupa dari sentuhan teknologi. Berapa banyak yang anaknya lincah menggunakan laptop tapi ketika mamanya mencoba menggunakan sesuatu disitu, malahan anaknya yang mengajari? Ibu-ibu tidak lagi punya kontrol terhadap ‘isi’ dari laptop anak mereka karena, ‘untuk menyalakan saja, saya tak bisa’.

Jadi, pengenalan ibu-ibu terhadap teknologi adalah hal yang baru tapi sekaligus melegakan bagi mereka. Kegiatan kemarin di Padukuhan Nologaten, Sleman, Yogyakarta bersama PASTi (perempuan sadar teknologi) ini berfokus mengenalkan bu ibu terharap teknologi perangkat terbuka (open source) sehingga mereka dapat menggunakannya di laptop masing-masing.

 

PS. haruus sabar, bu ibu belum bisa pegang mouse. hehehe.

Semoga makin banyak ya, bu

 

Gerakan ini mengajak semua adik-adik, mahasiswa, pelajar untuk dapat berkontribusi langsung di masyarakat. Oiya, kegiatan di PASTi tidak cuma ngajari ibu-ibu ini lhoo, beberapa kali kita pernah juga mengadakan Workshop dan Pelatihan.

openSUSE.Asia Summit 2016: A Remarkable Event – and gallery from Local Team –

Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work. – Booker T. Washington 

Who’s here who know where exactly Yogyakarta is? It is hard to simply explains where the city with local community of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) or Linux or Open Source and culture always stays in harmony is pointed. The way people of Indonesia remember, Yogyakarta is one of big cities with huge number of university and college students.

It was about 7 or 8 months ago (consider this was posted in second week of October 2016), when Pak Edwin Zakaria asked to join to handle this event — openSUSE.Asia Summit 2016 — start from how we arranged the proposal to SUSE. It was countless and endless virtual meetings.

joined

Thank you technology, now I know when it was 😀 (FYI, the name you looking for is “Siska Iskandar”)

First thing first, the meetings is about how we introduced Indonesia as one of the potential location for the next summit, I mean openSUSE.Asia Summit 2016. This group responsible for all and each words we made it, through a space and time between works, families, and everything matters.

Google Hangout for Local Team(s).  the only girl here!

After that, people formed and composed the proposal with collaborative and -as you know how people in community works- stick to deadline,  a lot talks and meetings for event spot and site locations, budgeting, considered there were limited time for sending out proposal –the deadline for sending out proposal is April 30 —

The meeting, few months after virtual meeting.

Overall, the key points proposals should consider, and what will be taken into account when deciding among candidates, are: Introduction, Objectives, Local Organizers, Proposed organizing committee, Proposed supporting organizations, Proposal Dates & Venue, Rooms, Keynotes, Registration, Travel support, Food and accommodation, Sponsorship, Call for paper, Call for volunteer, Theme, T-shirt, About Venue, Activities and schedule, Conference, Dinner and party, Expectations and marketing, Budget Estimation, Conference Venue, Conference Room, Tea break, Marketing materials(T-shirts,banner,badge,posters, etc.), Lunch, Dinner, Travel subsidy, Accommodation, Miscellaneous (Think about 10% uplift to have more buffer), Potential sponsors & media partners, Conclusion.

PHEW  ~~~~~~ \O^O/ ~~~~~

This material is prepared corresponding to a lot of college and university student coming in that day and have no idea what GNOME is. It is also to ensure there will be same comprehension about what and how GNOME is.
