It’s Hard!!

It’s Hard!!

August 25th 2011, Lutfi Afifah

Calm, deep, strong

Heart was different with spoken. Hard to say I’m Okay! There was many “challenge” that has made me so down a few days ago. Its hard! Yeah, its life! Research- Graduate- Future- Work- Master degree- Scholarship- Thesis Advisor Lecturer (PS aye)- Draft-  Seminar- Final Defence- and you. It could be a good sentence if it arrange one by one! It has a strong relationship from one word to other words. haha.. I ever tweet on my twitter that show how I am at that time. Felt Bad!! Haha 😀 lol.

You refers to you haha :p Sometimes close and sometimes like unknown people that never meet yet. You are so mysterious! That’s why I’m interested with a man like you. hehee … tapi kalo terus-terusan dihantui kaya gini kaga enak juga yee!!  hahaa  ah sudahlah… #Abaikan lol 😀

Walk alone

Now, I have to stand in my own feet. I know that only with our strength we could deal everything even though its hard and difficult to solve. I also need many friends to help me deal that. Oh.. gosh! September 6th 2011 I have to work in my lovely laboratory Patologi serangga. It mean I have to go back fastly from my hometown Ponorogo :(. Hmm…hope you could help me eventhough just pray. Wish me luck guys and I could graduate as you dear!!

I became "boss" at that time LOL

I was lucky got the best parents ever who always support me everytime I need. It almost a year actually I didn’t go home. It because of my research. I feel like a bird that couldn’t fly free. Doesn’t matter! Lets enjoy this part of life 🙂 That sweet photo was took in Malang, East Java July, 7th 2011. They visited me when I followed Syngenta Program with Australian student. Look at the picture! My father brought a book. Look silly on that photo. He said ”I wanna take photo with this book nduk!” showed book on camera. yahh.. ! That’s my father! He like read Islamic book exactly. I love you Dad! I love you also Mom.. eventhough little bit fussy actually. My Mom always ask me “When you will graduate??, Why you took a long time with your research, look at Endik (my neighbor anak UNS) he has completed his undergraduate!, Do you have boyfriend now? Who is he?… be careful with the man bla,… blaaa…” Thinking about that makes me feel pain!! Stop mom!! Anyway, I love you mom..

My Father and his book! LOL

I’m lucky being a student of IPB. Love Agricultural faculty so much!.. In this year 2011, I got Achievement as Outstanding student actually (read: Mahasiswa berprestasi). Hahaa.. I was proud of that eventhough I was not the best on it. Many of my friends doesn’t know about that because until now there is NO Announcement or something like publication about that. Doesn’t matter! No problem..

I’m lucky being part of Goodwill International family. Do you know guys,.. I really happy when I got a message from my scholarship sponsor from Hobart, Australia last July 29th 2011.

She said: “Lutfi, How are you? I want to let you know that the Marsaban family has agreed and is happy to support you for one more semester. PLease let us know the date of your graduation”.

I answered: “I’m fine Ms. Julie,. thank you so much. How’re you and family there? I hope you’re fine also. I was happy receiving goodwill extension for one more semester from The Marsaban family it would be help me to finish my bachelor in IPB. it was surprising! Officially announcement have not announced yet but you give me announcement early. InsyaAllah I will be graduate on December 2011. I will give you a news soon… Hope you could come to my graduation day 🙂 warmest regards, Lutfi

Love this Photo!! Pembina has represented my sponsor at Goodwill Get Togather II (they're also my parents) ^^

It mean, I got second chance to get Scholarship. So, might! For a year later I have to attend UI to follow monthly training *again. Haha. Not all of goodwillers got this chance. Only few students could get Scholarship Extension. Alhamdulillah lah pokoknya… kedepan masih ada tambahan biaya buat hidup gw.. haha.. My promise, I will make use of that scholarship wisely. I bet!!

Heiii,. someone there! I loved your smile, I love getting message from you~~ #eaaaa but today you have not gave congratulation yet.. oh how pity Im! -_- (8:13 am). I thought that last night 5th,  you text me to give something like congratulation but in fact NOT. 😦

That was my short story. Once more, Happy Birthday Lut and Happy Ramadhan for us!! Have a fantastic year!

What were we did there??: Syngenta Connection Program 2011

What were we did there??: Syngenta Connection Program 2011

Malang, July, 3-15 2011

“Yeah,. Just wanna share my great experiences that I had. Never imagine that I could follow this program”

This Program actually was held by Syngenta Indonesia and Syngenta Singapore. Last year this program was held in India and for this year this program already held in Malang, East Java,  Indonesia. The students that followed this program come from Indonesia and Australia. Indonesian participants are comes from Bogor Agricultural University (IPB), Gajahmada University (UGM), Brawijaya University (UB), and Muhammadiyah University (UMM). Australian participants are comes from University of Sydney, Melbourne University, New England University, La Trobe University, and Charles Stuart University.

Farmer meeting 1: Malang, East Java

Actually there was 3 delegates from IPB, Me, Rita Kurnia Apindiati, and Mahardika Gama Pradana. Still remember we flew to Malang with Batavia Air. Syngenta provide us all the facilities such as transport, hotel, meals, and all of our needs.

Me, Gama, and Rita… Bromooo!!!

 IPB delegates with Cindy (Manager Syngenta Singapore) and Mr. Felix (Manager Syngenta Indonesia)

We miss you Cindy and Mr. Felix…

We did many things there. Five groups conducted farmer meetings in three separate villages. Focusing on safe handling and use of pesticides. One group consist of 2 Australian participants and 3 Indonesian participants. Actually we are (indonesian) take a crucial part as a translator from Farmer to our Aussie friends.

We discuss anything about our program, eventhough there was a little bit miss understanding among us because of the differencies languanges. Sometimes and even often me and my Indonesian friend say “Pardon,.. sorry pardon!!” Hhahaa..  Too much pardon along day. But we try to speak and understand each sentence we had.. haha.. but Actually we know what their speak as well.

Someday when we just finishing our third farmer meeting at July 11, 2011 around 10.00 pm in the car my friends Laura said something to me. He was sat in the back of car. “Lutfi….. bla… blaaaa..” She spoke unclear at that time. I thougth that I was very tired at that time so I couldn’t heard what her speak. “Do you mean this laura?? I showed farmer meeting attendance” “Oh.. no..!!!” then she repeated what she speak. Then I heard carefully,.. oh gosh! How bad I am ^^v Actually she just said “Lutfi, can you tell the Driver that I want to buy something in the supermarket because I haven’t any mineral water” oh.. yaeahh.. of course Laura! Then I told to the our driver. “What else do you want to buy?” I asked “No, Just water” She said. Those was a simple miss understanding among us. Funny!!! 😀

This is my great team called Awesome team

Laura Phelps, Markus Lang, Ahmad Rifqie Hasan, Me, and Silwanus Zebua

We just focusing in one villages called Gading Kulon.  Mostly the commodity are citrus and vegetables. Commonly, society there couldn’t know how to use pestiside wisely and safely so that we had to explain to them how to buying, transport, saving, and how to disposal pesticide safely.

We gave them any pesticide boxes called “TEMPAT PESTISIDA” in the farmer meeting and make sure in the next day that the boxes already hang well in the wall of farmer’s houses. We were tired at that time! But we were happy.. 😀

In front of Mr Jarwo house: The boxes ready to distribute!!

Laura gave the pesticide boxes to the farmer

River adventure with citrus farmer!!

We got a day for holiday. On July 10 2011 we got a free day. All of us went to Bromo mountain..

That was my first experience to go there. Iam happy!

Stacey and me: There was a wheat field there! Awesome!!
