Strawberry Cheese Pie

Ooooh like finally I am able to write new post this week. I am so sorry for ignoring you this two last week. And this is about my experience in making Strawberry Cheese Pie when I was home, so let me share to you..

Pie Crust
1.       75 gr of cold butter
2.       ¼ tea spoon of salt
3.       1 egg yolk
4.       25 gr of fine granulated sugar/sugar powder
5.       150 gr of wheat flour
1.       375 gr of cheese cream. Let it in room temperature. (I bought yummy cheese cream in Carrefour)
2.       1/8 tea spoon of salt
3.       ½ spoon of grated lemon peels
4.       115 gr of fine granulated sugar/sugar powder
5.       75 gr of eggs
6.       1 ½ spoon of wheat flour
7.       75 gr of fresh milk (I used the full cream one or you may use cooking cream)
8.       ½ spoon of lemon juice
1.       300 gr of fresh strawberry
2.       65 gr of strawberry jam
3.       3 spoons of cold water

How to make
Pie Crust
Mix wheat flour, sugar powder, and salt. Add butter and stir with fork until the dough mix well. The dough will look rough, and then add the egg yolk. Mix with your tip of fingers until the dough become soft (or “kalis” in Bahasa). Tips: do not use your full hand because it will make the dough become hard (or “bantet” in Bahasa).

Put the dough in plastic wrap and roll it until flat but not too thin. Put 15 minutes in refrigerator. Then take the dough and roll it until quite thin, make sure the dough will suit with the pie crust pan. Put it on the pie crust pan (I think this is the hardest part), then use fork to make a little hole all over the pie crust dough.

While you’re having a “business” with pie crust dough, prepare the oven with 170 degree Celcius. Put the pie crust dough until half-done (around 15-20 minutes) and fill with the cheese filling.

Mix cheese cream, salt, grated lemon peels, and sugar powder with medium speed. Add the eggs, and mix it. Then add the wheat flour, milk, lemon juice and mix it. Pour on the half-done pie crust and put in the oven for about 40 minutes until the cheese cream settled.

Boil the strawberry jam and water in pan with small heat, and then add the fresh strawberry. Pour on the top of pie and let it cold. Well, the strawberry cheese pie is ready to be served.
Buuuuuuuurn :(

How Long for Us to Live?

I had a quite sad weekend last week since receiving bad news in two days in a row. On Saturday afternoon, I received group blackberry messenger about an officemate who passed away after fighting Lupus disease over these 7 years. I didn’t know about her actually, but we worked in the same region. She was in a young age and brought shock feeling to everyone in the group after knowing about that news. I really hope that she rest in peace and I do believe Allah has already diminished her sins as one of fighters for Lupus disease.
The following day, my friend PING!!! me on personal blackberry messenger. She told me that one of our seniors has passed away because of an accident. Her name is Putri Hutami Santoso if I am not mistaken and we called her Kak Iput. I knew her since my first semester in Brawijaya University Malang, East Java. She was an official for new student’s orientation and also one of committees in external students club whom the members come from Jakarta. She was really good senior for me, even I and my friend ever discussed about her tweets which really nice to be read.
Mbak Ayu and The Late Kak Iput

She was probably 27 years old when the accident happened and got her second baby in her tummy for 8 months. Oh this was the saddest thing, none of them is alive. Based on what I heard from Mbak Ayu, the accident happened on 7 pm. Kak Iput and her husband on their way home after visiting Gynecologist when a car crushed on their motorcycle. Kak Iput’s husband fell directly on the road, while Kak Iput got dragged along some meters on the road. The car was just running away and left them lonely.

I believe Allah really love you, Kak Iput. In my prayer, I hope you and your baby have already rest in peace in His heaven waiting for your husband and your first child. I will always remember your kindness and spirit. I will remember that you’re the one who give me a spoon when we have to break our fasting in the middle of the road, while every senior that I’ve already asked just ignore me. We will miss you, Kak. :)

From two stories above, we must realize that our time in this world will end. We do not know for how long we will live and how we will face our death. One thing for sure, we have to give good legacy to society before we left this world for good. We have to be beneficial for others and completing our bucket of lists. So for how long for us to live?

Nike Plus Running Application

I installed this application on October 2013 and started to use it in the middle of May 2014. Nike plus running app is application for Android and iOS to track your running. You will know about how calories had burnt, how long you've run, the average pace of your running, and the running route if you activated your GPS.

To serve the users better, Nike plus running app also provide badges to be collected by the user when they achieved something. For example your fastest run, your farthest run, running in Halloween Day, running in rainy/snowy days, and many more.

Furthermore Nike plus running app is pretty similar with other social medias for users who want to share their running activities to others. Yes we can add friends in our application. It also can be connected to other social medias such as Facebook dan Twitter so that your friends know your activities.

Since I love collecting the badges, I proudly announce by the end of January 2015 I got the golden miles trophy. It means I ran for more than 50 miles or around 81 km a month. Woohoo.! As an amateur runner, to reach that distance in a month was really challenging, but finally I did make it. Alhamdulillah.. And this year target is able to run in marathon or 42 km.

Ahh ya let me show some of my badges:

PS: Well if you don't mind, please add my Nike Running+ in pamungkasalamin ya. Good day, Folks.



Based on oxford dictionaries, the meaning of commitment is the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc. When you have a commitment, you are willing to sacrifice everything to hold still with it. Looking backward on my personal life, I think I am such a committed person in some cases. But in the other cases, I can’t fulfill what I’ve been committed to.

As I mentioned before in my previous post, I always make targets every year. One of them is to improve my writing skill in English, since I am really bad in it. So I commit to have a personal project named:

“At least a new blog post every week”

I beg your pardon dear beloved readers if my writing will irritate you with miss spelling or wrong grammar. I will be the happiest kid if you are willing to give any feedback to improve my writing. Catch you up soon in my next post and happy days, Dreamers!


Linggau Colours Day

It’s the first running event in Lubuklinggau and I was excited yet surprise at the same time. Why? Since Lubuklinggau is a small city in South Sumatera, I didn’t expect that the community will held that kind of event. As far as I know, Lubuklinggau Colours Day is initiated by Good People Creative and fully supported by Lubuklinggau government. The event was held on January 25th, 2015 but the issue of this event has already heard from November 2014. So I’ve already prepare to join this event with my office mates at that time, but unfortunately I’ve got signed into Bengkulu in December for the next 3 months. At the end of it, I was still able to join this event by taking car rental from Bengkulu to Lubuklinggau which took around 4 hours.
The Tickets
The Race Pack
The ticket costs for IDR 85k and sold out a week before the event. By paying that amount we got some amount for charity and the race pack which consist of t-shirt, sun glasses, sticker, participant number, and color powder. If comparing with other running event in other city, actually the ticket price is cheaper. But I think the race pack can be better than what I’ve got on my hand. The quality of the t-shirt is really bad in my opinion (I never involved in color run before but from my experiences in joining 3 running events in Jakarta, this t-shirt is the worst). We as participant have no clue about the race route because there’s no map and schedule in that race pack. So we have to take a look on this event’s instagram account. I was also wondering if there’s a prize or not for the winner at the beginning of the race until we reach the finish line and the MC announced 15 top runners will receive some prizes. Furthermore along the route, there’s no water station for the participant. And the worst of it, the event was delayed more than 30 minutes because we have to wait for someone to open this event.
The Gang! The leader is the one who wear those stripe pants

More than 30 minutes delayed

Besides those things, the event was pretty cool. The committee and the local government are fully prepared for this event. The participants got showered by colors powder in 4 points and the coolest thing is the mayor and his wife has also join in throwing the color powder to participants. After we reach the finish line, we faced a big stage with DJ playing the music. Ahh ya and we received a pocket of color powder as well, so we can throw the color powder into the air while dancing along the music. I think everyone was really enjoyed with the ambience, except me who didn’t like sort of those things. I JUST CAN NOT ENJOY ANY MUSIC FROM ANY DJ’s AROUND THE WORLD. Yaaah you can call me weird, but that type of music is not suit with my ears. Although I have to struggle to enjoy the music, the crowd was extremely great. I can feel their energy and somehow it lifted me into higher level. Last but not least, I really appreciate with this event’s officials who work really hard to make the city clean after the event ended.

The Rave Party

After party and we're starving.!
As the first running event held in Lubuklinggau, I must take my hat off to the committees, officials, local government, and volunteers. You did amazing job and spread the good energy in local society. With those criticisms above, I really hope for the better event next time. I am really satisfied by participating Linggau Colours Day in Lubuklinggau.
Thumbs up for the event
 PS: For the next event’s committees, don’t forget to add trash bin/bag along the race route. And for the next participants, I do beg to you to not be such a litterbug in the future.
