Indomielogy

Hari ini hari Selasa, 2 Februari 2018. Bogor sedang mendung sementara kemarin hujan lebat hingga membuat Jakarta sempat terendam.
Tapi disini gua bukan mau bikin laporan cuaca so let's jump right in to the topic.

INDOMIELOGY. Apa itu? Sebuah ideologi baru? Tentu tidak.
Karena ideologiku hanya Pancasila.

Memikirkan sejenak tentang kehidupan kadang emang bikin ketawa dan miris sendiri.
Di era yang apa-apa serba digital, hidup jadi gak setentram dulu.
Kenapa?

Mau berpendapat A, takut.
Mau berpendapat B, takut.
Mau posting C, takut.

Gitu aja terus hingga akhirnya semua diem, gak ada yang berani ngomong.
By the way, emangnya takut apa sih?

Takut dihujat. Emang, level judgmental orang Indonesia saat ini udah level 99. Nyeremin.
Terus kenapa dihujat doang takut? WOY! Mental illness is real.

Beberapa tahun ini, kalau kalian masih main twitter pasti paham deh ada istilah cebong, sumbu pendek, bani sorbet dan semacamnya. Istilah tersebut adalah istilah untuk merendahkan orang lain. Percayalah, karena tidak ada yang merasa sedang dipuji kalo disebut-sebut sama istilah itu.

Kenapa bisa ada istilah kaya diatas tadi? It's simply karena adanya pro dan kontra dalam kehidupan bersosial bermasyarakat. Dan juga karena cepatnya seseorang untuk menghakimi orang lain.

Ibaratnya gini,

Di twitter nih kalo gua ngetweet
"GUA SUKA INDOMIE GORENG"

Terus netizen suka ide menyimpulkan sendiri kalo gua ga suka indomie kuah.

Padahal kenyataannya gua suka mie kuah kok, tapi gak gua tweet aja. Gua simpan sendiri.

Begitupula dengan orang-orang di twitter yang berpendapat A, selalu diasumsikan masuk dalam kubu tertentu dan dianggap membenci B.
Padahal, dia cuma pengen aja menyuarakan pendapatnya tentang A. Dia bahkan ga sebut-sebut B. Tapi gitu, netijen ini suka mengkait-kaitkan. Ngeri kan?

Lalu gini, gua paling kesel kalo ngeliat istilah cebong, sumbu pendek dsb ini udah beredar di timeline gua. Karna apa? Gua melihat, orang-orang yang ngatain orang lain dengan istilah tadi, merasa dirinya paling bener. Merasa pendapat orang lain yang kontra sama dia itu salah, gak penting, gak berbobot. 
Belum lagi yang paling ngeselin nih, udah mah ngatain pake istilah-istilah eh ditambahin pake kata-kata kasar yang suka bikin kita para pembaca istigfar.

Padahal nih ya, namanya juga manusia gitu. Ya wajar aja gak sih punya pendapat beda?

Ibaratnya gini,

Gua sekeluarga beranggota 5 orang. Ada bapak, ibu, kakak perempuan, kakak laki-laki, dan gua sendiri.
Bapak gua kalo masak indomie, dia masukin bumbunya pas airnya mendidih dan masih dalam keadaan direbus dipanci.
Ibu gua demennya indomienya dibikinin sama orang lain, dan makannya cuma setengahnya.
Kakak perempuan gua kalo bikin indomie, kuahnya didikitin biar bumbunya berasa banget.
Kakak laki-laki gua masak indomie suka dimacem-macemin entah dibikin pizza mie dan rangkaian menu lainnya.
Gua kalo masak mie normal-normal aja, bahkan suka kebanyakan air dan nyesel diakhir.

Ini satu keluarga lho ini, kalo tes dna yakin match 99,99%  dan kita cara masak indomie aja beda-beda.

Terus, kita ribut gitu?
NGGAK.

Terus cara masak indomie diantara kita ada yang salah?
NGGAK.

Terus cara masak indomie diantara kita ada yang paling bener?
NGGAK.

It is as simple as that. Otak dan pikiran manusia tuh gak sama. Jadi kalo ada yang beda pendapat itu namanya wajar. Sekali lagi ya, w a j a r.

Apa sesulit itu untuk gak berkomentar nyinyirin orang?
Sesulit itu untuk menerima pendapat orang lain?

Kalau misalkan lu kaga setuju sama pendapat orang, diem aja udah.
Gak bisa diem? Yaudah omongin.
Omongin juga baik-baik dan inget, lu gak bisa seenaknya menyalahkan pendapat orang gitu aja.
Lu juga harus inget kalo setiap orang berhak berpendapat. Dan lu gak bisa memaksakan pendapat lu ke orang lain.

Paling penting, omonginnya private antara lu dan dia aja. Gausah di publik.
Ntar malah jadi debat kusir, tontonan infotwitwor. Malu.
Kecuali emang pengen cari sensasi aja ya.
Tapi jangan dibiasain ah, gak baik.

S-E-K-I-A-N
unek-unekku

Ah kan, jadi pengen makan indomie.

Innisfree Jeju Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask Review

Hello beauty friends!

Now I am gonna share about my experience from using a korean clay mask which is so phenomenal in 2017. What is it? As you can see from the title, it's

INNISFREE JEJU SUPER VOLCANIC PORE CLAY MASK


If you are kdrama lovers like me, you must have heard about Jeju Island. Yup, the beautiful island with a beautiful sea. If you don't know, Jeju Island is located in South Korea. So this mask is created by some ingredients which contain jeju's volcanic explotion. It contains 6,020 mg of Jeju volcanic clay. Whoaaa.. sounds scary right? But I am so interested to try!

Claims
They say it is the best mask that they produce.
It claims that this mask will give you a "Shrinks pores + Controls sebum + Exfoliates + Deeply cleanses + Brightens tone + Cools"
So let's see, does it really work as it says?

My Experience
Yup, so I have been using this product for about more than a month and this clay mask is really doing a great job!
I have an oily skin and this mask reduce the oil permanently when I use it regularly like 2 - 3 times a week. 
I am gonna compare the claim of the product and the experience that I have been through.

"Shrink pores" After using it for a month, I haven't noticed that my pores are shrank. But it's not big either.

"Controls sebum" I agree with this one. The oil production level on my face is really decreasing. It usually takes about 1-2 hours after doing make up til my face gets oily. But lately my make up stays longer (I don't use a primer on daily basis).

"Exfoliates" I feel like it does exfoliate my face. Why? Because I feel like the dark spot and acne scar on my face are slowly fading away. I am so happy with that of course :)

"Deeply cleanses" This mask says that it can clean your deep pores. And I think it does a great job. I feel like my face is really clean after using this mask. And then lately, I notice that there is no whiteheads and blackheads on my face as much as before because this mask really cleans my face til the deepest pores.

"Brightens tone" Since I am using a different products, I don't know which one affect my skin tone. It doesn't tone up but it does look brighter than before.

"Cools" Yes! It really has a cool sensation when I applied it on my skin. So refreshing, I like it.
  
How to use
 After washing your face, prepare your face by using a toner. Then, apply the mask over your entire face, avoiding your eye and lip areas. Rinse off the mask with lukewarm water after 10 minutes. Don't use it longer than 10 minutes because it will make your skin dry. If you have a dry skin, better wash it after 5 minutes.


Texture
The texture of this mask is simply like a clay. It's not creamy, oily, or even watery. It's a bit hard. You better take the product with a special spoon for a mask. Avoid taking the product by your bare hands when your nails are long.



Ingredients
WATER, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, VOLCANIC ASH, GLYCERIN, SILICA, TREHALOSE, KAOLIN, BENTONITE, POLYVINYL ALCOHOL, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, ZINC OXIDE (CI 77947), GLYCERYL STEARATE, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, JUGLANS REGIA (WALNUT) SHELL POWDER, CAMELLIA SINENSIS LEAF EXTRACT, CITRUS UNSHIU PEEL EXTRACT, OPUNTIA COCCINELLIFERA FRUIT EXTRACT, ORCHID EXTRACT, CAMELLIA JAPONICA LEAF EXTRACT, PVP, PEG-100 STEARATE, POLYSORBATE 60, STEARIC ACID, PALMITIC ACID, HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL, XANTHAN GUM, IRON OXIDES (CI 77499), ZEA MAYS (CORN) STARCH, SORBITAN STEARATE, POLYACRYLATE-13, MANNITOL, MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE, LACTIC ACID, POLYISOBUTENE, MENTHOXYPROPANEDIOL, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, TETRASODIUM PYROPHOSPHATE, POLYSORBATE 20, IRON OXIDES (CI 77491), DISODIUM EDTA, PHENOXYETHANOL 

Price
I think the price is still affordable for a best mask of innisfree. I bought it about IDR 190.000  (it's a package with the facial wash and toner).

Packaging
The packaging is solid and cute at the same time. It's like a little barrel made of something hard like a steel lol. I don't know what it is made of but it is so solid and hard and safe.

Repurchase? 
I am not sure about repurchasing because I wanna try the color clay mask too! It's the same tho, but I just wanna try the clay which have a cute pastel color that I like. But I am sure I will definitely continue using clay mask from this brand.

Civil Servant?

As you can see from the title, I am going to discuss about the civil servant test.

Here, in  my country, there are a lot of people who want to be a civil servant. Why?
I don't know either they really want to give a service to citizen or it is a safe place for a worker.

Why is it a safe place? Being a civil servant is a way different from being a regular office worker in a private company (from what I've seen all my life). Your competence is important, but not that important. Your honesty is important, but not that important. Your idea is important, but again, not that important. Because the system is just like that. Static. Closed system model. If you can work just like how the system works, then you will pass. If you can't? No problem, you will still pass and get your income every month.

You work hard but not that hard. Yes, your competence will be valued because the government will give you tip as "tunjangan kinerja", but are you really doing your job effectively? The human resource management in government level is still not that good. They say the merit system is applied, but now there are still people who lack of competence get the reward which they don't deserve. Then, is it fair for those who really work hard? They get the same treatment but the efforts are different. How sad :(

Lately, the social media I am in is kinda a mess because of the requirements which are given by each ministries for becoming a civil servant. I thought they will give a chance fairly. I thought they will see our competence. But you know what do they see in the first place? It's your GPA.

I know, I know. Seeing someone's GPA will make it easier for the government to cut the line. And it is a standard that they make from a long long ago. But is it fair? They need people who are cum laude. Yes, they also need the regular one (not cum laude but still GPA is more than 3). But it's 5:1 for some positions. Like really?

(Imagine if the six of them are gathered. Pointing one person saying "Oh you are not the cum laude one right? Because five of us here are cum laude) (Sorry, this is just my imagination lol)

If it's like this, then your education won't be seen as an education anymore. You work your ass off in your college, thinking about a b c and d. It won't be seen. Because what they see is your GPA. So don't feel strange if you see your friend cheat in exam to get an A point. Don't feel strange if your friend doesn't do their task by themselves (maybe from google or seniors) but get an A point. Don't feel strange if going to college is not for getting an education and increasing knowledge anymore, but an A point. The system is just like that.

It makes you think that to be a civil servant, what you have to do is having a good good GPA. So, for you who are still in college, get A point in every subject as much as you can, however it takes. Because they won't see your knowledge in the first place.

Why don't they make the test like SBMPTN when all people can try? Then you can see the result of those who are not cum laude as your consideration. But here you don't even see the test result, you just cut those who are not match with the requirement... I mean, it's up to you, dear government, to put a GPA requirement. But don't just place the cum laude for 5 and regular for 1. Competencies can't be seen by GPA. You know that and it is proved by our minister, Susi Pudjiastuti. Why don't you learn and give a fair chance?

I know. I don't have to be one if I am feeling pressured. It's not that my GPA is low so I am making this (and it's not high either lol). There are still a lot of job vacancies. But in my deepest heart and thought, as a public administration student, I want to be a civil servant. Why? Because that's what I learned in college. Giving services, making policies, management, etc. I just want my knowledge can be used in work life :(
But yeah, you won't know until it happens to you.

Life is just like that. Should we keep it or change it? It's up to you. No, it's up to the government....


(This is my personal opinion. Don't cyduq me)

Love,


Shabrina Tri Andini
