Selamat Hari Kartini, Perempuan Indonesia!





Selamat Hari Kartini, Perempuan Indonesia.


Sudah terhitung kesekian kalinya perayaan terhadap ‘kebebasan’ perempuan Indonesia dirayakan di bumi pertiwi ini, namun apakah benar kita semua sudah benar-benar bebas? Bebas untuk berpendapat? Bebas untuk menentukan untuk masa depan? Apakah sudah demikian bebas?

Perempuan sendiri dalam hierarki sosial dikenal sebagai makhluk sekunder yang selalu dinomorduakan dibandingkan dengan pria, lebih-lebih di Asia yang kebanyakan masih menganut patriarki yang mana menganggap derajat pria tentulah di atas dan melebihi derajat pria. Perempuan sendiri erat kaitannya dengan dapur, beberes rumah hingga urusan ranjang. Sementara bagaimana dengan pekerjaan lainnya? Perempuan sering kali dipandang sebelah mata terkait dengan kemampuannya, “mampukah anda memimpin kelompok?”, “mampukah anda tidak melibatkan emosi pada diskusi ini?, “mampukah anda berfikiran logis?”, “mampukah anda melalui semua ini?”. Atau yang paling buruk adalah perempuan tidak diperbolehkan dengan muncul di ruang publik dengan dalih, “lakukanlah kewajibanmu yang sesuai kodratnya.”-yang notabene urusan rumah tangga, beberes rumah dan urusan ranjang. Berinduk dari pemikiran yang demikian tak jarang perempuan dijadikan objek yang mampu digunakan sesuka hati ataupun hanya muncul jika dikehendaki, dikesampingkan statusnya sebagai manusia yang juga memiliki kemampuan.


Padahal, jika ditinjau kembali perempuan sendiri dalam Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia (KBBI) adalah orang (manusia) yang mempunyai puki, dapat menstruasi, hamil dan melahirkan anak, menyusui; sementara arti lainnya adalah betina. Sementara hal-hal lain di luar yang telah disebutkan berarti bukanlah kewajiban ataupun kodrat perempuan. Perempuan tidak berkewajiban untuk melakukan urusan dapur ataupun beberes rumah, perempuan juga berhak untuk melakukan pilihannya. Perempuan pun bebas menentukan jalan mana yang diambil untuk melangkah.

Sedikit ungkapan hati. Jujur saja, saya acap kali geram dengan berbagai konklusi tidak relevan, "cantik sih sayang murahan." Padahal ia mendapat predikat murahan HANYA karena pakaiannya yang terbuka dan dianggap merangsang birahi, padahal kami (perempuan) bebas memakai apapun yang kami kehendaki tanpa bermaksud merangsang birahi atupun menyenangkan pria-pria ataupun masyarakat di luar sana. Di sisi lain, perempuan juga kerap diperbincangkan jika dia merokok, padahal ada apa jika dia merokok? Tidak ada yang salah dengan perempuan merokok, toh rokok sendiri bukanlah benda sakral yang hanya bisa dimiliki ataupun digunakan oleh pria. Tidak ada larangan untuk perempuan untuk berpakaian apapun yang diinginkan ataupun bahkan merokok. 

Menurut saya, perempuan bukanlah alat pemuas opini masyarakat yang harus mengikuti standar 'perempuan yang sesungguhnya' di kacamata orang lain. Setiap perempuan berhak memilih.

Make Up Class and Talkshow with emina













Today I attend the event from emina which was make up class and talkshow with Dinda Puspitasari (my favorite book illustrator) and Diana Rikasari (one of my favorite fashion blogger) at Soetandyo Room FISIP UNAIR. I was very curious with emina because it recently often appear in any magazines. And luckily today I tried their products! emina itself is a new born make up which was launched at 2015, and surely made in Indonesia. Their packaging was very cute and sweet, I can guess that their segmentation for teenagers.
I used to think that the products of this brand might be disappointing so I didn’t expect anything, but hey this products were underrated (even if, some of their products were not that good). Firstly, I cleaned my face with wet tissue and toner—I can say I don’t really understand the differences between the toner from emina and the other one. After that I applied sun protection 30 spf, and yeah I love it! Super hydrating and light for my face (and thankfully I got it FREE-cause I asked some questions to Kak Diana and Kak Dinda). Then, I used their BB cream—I thought it would be too light but, hell no! Their BB cream was medium coverage but blended well at my face, so it didn’t too light (anyway, fun fact my friend whom has darker tone from me also good with this BB Cream). emina has two kinds of blush on, powder and cream. Their cream blush on was very cute and unique because when we turned it out firstly will be white colour but later if we smeared it will change into fresh pink. Then, their CC cake powder also good with super light and blended well. emina has matte eyeshadow which was very yay because I don’t really like too-glittery-eyeshadow, but sadly when I applied to my eyes it didn’t too pigmented so I must apply it over and over again. I’m a big fan of gel and liquid eyeliner, but sadly I didn’t try it because emina didn’t prepare for liquid and gel eyeliner but I tried their pencil eyeliner—quite good but sadly it was very easy to smudge especially if you’re oily skin type. And, their lipstick was cool because they has lip colour balm with matte finish but still moisturizing. Anyway, you know the happiest news was everything is below 100 IDR (YAY!!) And voila, I finished it! So what do you think?

After I finished make up class, there was a talkshow with Dinda Puspitasari and Diana Rikasari. Both of them were inspiring, they shared many things from how they survive for their dreams and passions are, how they keep their consistencies, tips for dealing with the haters and many people who underestimate us. It was very fun, both of those great people were sharing us hot tips and tricks.



Anyway thanks to emina for giving me new experiences.

It Still Cold Outside

Hello guys! I really miss you. Big sorry for Missing In Action—well I know I know I often missed for a long time. I really had confused for dividing my twenty-four-hours for my academic activity, blogging, and my work time which is so busy. But then, I really miss blogging again (after very long time I lost) so I decided to write and upload more photos—for sure at this site.


So we’re getting close with the summertime but still the weather so unpredictable, when I didn’t wear warm clothes or even brought my umbrella it would be rain. And frankly, sometimes it’s still cold outside because of those weather, so yeah my monochrome outfit with red touch will help me to keep warm.
