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.
