#WikuFest4 : Creative World

For the third consecutive time, Mozilla Indonesia participated in Wikusama Festival (WikuFest), SMK Telkom Malang, on the 30–31 January 2015. In 2013 and 2014, Mozilla Indonesia also participated on the same event.

This year’s WikuFest speakers from Mozilla Indonesia are: Arief Bayu Purwanto, Irayani Queencyputri (Rara), Fauzan Alfi, Muhammad Fadhil, and Rizki Dwi Kelimutu (FSA Univ. Dian Nuswantoro).

What is WikuFest? According to their site, Wikusama Festival is an annual event held by Ikatan Alumni Wikusama (Wikusama Alumni League), a two-day seminar with speakers from SMK Telkom Malang alumni, whom has proven their track record in the ICT industry.


Just like last year, WikuFest provided parallel classes that students of SMK Telkom Malang could participate in. Although students from the 11th and 12th grade could join the classes, the 10th graders were expected to only join the event as volunteers.

This year’s class from Mozilla was quite varied. There was a four-hour Maker Party hosted by Fauzan and Fadhil, and two sessions of workshop on Support Mozilla (SuMo) sprint hosted by Kelimutu. Arief, as usual, gave talks on the topic Bootstrap Your Firefox OS Development. There was also a class on Privacy and Security on the Web by Rara, and a class on How to Contribute by Fauzan.

Other than the parallel classes that were mentioned, there was also a Mentor Meetup. During this meetup, the participants of WikuFest were invited to approach any speakers and started a discussion on a topic they liked.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

Serenity (noun): The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled. If you live in a big city, daily routines may bring you to a boredom. Once in a while, you have to get our from the routines, and getaway. And these getaway, usually seek for serenity.

Actually, being calm and peaceful is also different to each person. Some people loves to travel into another bustling city, some people just wanna stop and enjoy the calmness of the nature.

When I travel to Kyoto, I like to go see the japanese rock gardens around. We usually know these gardens as “zen garden”. The garden is so peaceful and you can feel the time will pass so slow. Try to sit near one of the gardens, and feel the moment.

The Japanese rock garden (karesansui) or “dry landscape” garden, often called a zen garden, creates a miniature stylized landscape through carefully composed arrangements of rocks, water features, moss, pruned trees and bushes, and uses gravel or sand that is raked to represent ripples in water.

They were intended to imitate the intimate essence of nature, not its actual appearance, and to serve an aid to meditation about the true meaning of life.

Visiting a zen garden, always made me feel at peace.

Kakigori is a Japanese shaved ice dessert flavored with syrup and condensed milk. Popular flavors include strawberry, cherry, lemon, green tea, grape, melon, “Blue Hawaii,” sweet plum, and colorless syrup. To sweeten kakig?ri, condensed milk is often poured on top of it. It is not like a snow cone: It has a much smoother fluffier ice consistency, much like fresh fallen snow, and a spoon is almost always used to eat it.


Picture above is “Boo!!! Kakigori” with matcha syrup and matcha ice cream. That’s why it is green. But the ears are made from strawberries. How cute! <3 They have it in many flavors: strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, matcha, ogura, black sesame. I choose matcha (green tea) because I love that flavor so much! So the green shaved ice dessert with a bear shape, came to my table, ready to serve. Below those shaved ice, there were some egg puddings lying there, waiting to be found and tasted. Sweet, but not extremely sweet :) I wanna go there again, someday. Prepare for the long queue line. Waiting time approx. 15-30 minutes :D Location: SumoBoo - Kota Kasablanka, Jakarta.

What are the best foods for healthy teeth?

What are the best foods for healthy teeth?

Having a consistent, healthy diet, is good for your body AND for your smile. Many people don’t realize how important their food is for their teeth. Just like unhealthy food can cause your enamel to wear away and stains to occur, healthy foods can keep your teeth strong and can even make them whiter.

Some of the best foods for healthy teeth may come as a surprise. These foods are easy to incorporate into your everyday diet and make the effects of your good oral hygiene that much more effective. Other than maintaining your teeth by brushing and flossing and visiting your dentist twice each year, adding these nutritious bites will make a huge difference in the health of your teeth.

Cheese is one of the best foods for healthy teeth for a number of different reasons. For one, it is low in sugar and high in calcium, but that’s not all. Cheese is also an essential part of a healthy diet because it contains casein, which is a protein that is particularly useful for fortifying the tooth enamel. Check out the latest dentitox pro reviews.

Many vegetables are good for teeth because they require a lot of chewing, which causes additional saliva and helps to clean teeth surfaces. Celery is particularly useful because it breaks down into fibrous components which physically clean the teeth more effectively.

Pears are a great fruit for a healthy diet and healthy teeth because the flesh of the pear actually helps neutralize the acid in your mouth that causes decay. Yogurt is a tasty treat that contains something called phosphates, which actually work to remineralize teeth.

You may already eat some of these great foods for your teeth, but it doesn’t hurt to add all of them to your diet and create the healthiest smile ever. There are plenty of great recipes available online that can help you use all of these foods together and make one big healthy meal that will strengthen your smile.


Manufacturing, like all sectors, was hit hard on the past year, from supply chains to the factory floor. Tim Parkinson, Airedale Springs’ Chairman, believes that something has to change now, so that manufacturers can prevent a similar situation from happening again.

Not since the imposition of the three-day week back in the 1970’s has an event forced business to work differently. Any good business should examine its operation, what it does and why; and is it beneficial to the business, its employees and the environment; not just for today but also for tomorrow. The world has changed and so must we.

Airedale Springs are taking a closer look how businesses can protect themselves from being negatively affected by events like these in the future.

Investing in smart factories
Automation has been a vital component of manufacturing even before the global pandemic, but it’s now clear that implementing a smart factory can go a long way to prevent issues such as skills and raw material shortages, which are detrimental to productivity and the bottom line. Learn more about the flock manufacturer process.

This is because Industry 4.0 technologies, such as the Internet of Things and autonomous robots, can offer better solutions to businesses in the future. These include creating a safe workspace for staff, using virtual reality or remote communication for training, helping to create a more flexible workforce and aiding in the development of innovative processes and systems.

For those businesses that haven’t invested in automation yet – or those that know they could be doing more – the pandemic has proved to be a catalyst for change. For instance, manufacturers need agile and flexible processes if they hope to survive an event such as the coronavirus outbreak.

Automation is a key feature at Airedale Springs, from the cutting-edge simulation software we use to the latest CNC machines that allows us to manufacture products to our clients’ exact specifications.

Working around skills shortages
Businesses that relied mainly on personnel during lockdown saw how hard it was to stay open or to conduct business as normally as possible. Automation offers an added degree of safety that is capable of keeping businesses afloat even during the most challenging of circumstances.

Social distancing is likely to remain in place for the foreseeable, which means businesses may have to learn to perform with a reduced workforce. The industry is already suffering from a skills gap and a lack of young people interested in manufacturing, which only serves to worsen the problem.

Automation ensures that production carries on even if you’re unable to have a fully staffed premise, and it can help you to keep the quality high no matter what.

So, while the potential of personnel restrictions can lead to limited production (and even shut the facility in its entirety), an investment in automated processes and machinery, as well as on digital technologies, can provide businesses with a great deal of security and prepare them for future issues.

Diversifying supply chains
It’s clear from the outcome of the pandemic that many (if not most) businesses around the world were not ready for the massive disruption of the supply chain.

Focusing your supply chain in just one area, for example, can result in your production slowing down or stopping if factories close. This is why many manufacturers struggled when factories in China were shut down – many were relying heavily on those suppliers and were, therefore, left without key materials or products for a long time.

Investing in several, and more importantly local, supply chains is not just important to prevent supply disruptions, it’s also crucial to be able to answer spikes of productivity, such as seasonal bursts.

Ruang Kosong

Nice to meet you, where you been?

Sudah lama tidak mengisi blog ini *sapu-sapu debu, bersihin lumut dan sarang laba-laba* ..somehow beberapa tahun terakhir keinginan menulis sudah menurun. Kenapa? Well, so many things happened. Ternyata, mood dan kejadian yang tidak mendukung kebahagiaan hati memang membuat seseorang menjadi kontra-produktif :( writer block kah? #suram

Dulu saat baru memulai ngeblog, hingga banyak tahun kemudian, rasanya ada saja yang bisa ditulis di sini. Sekarang rasanya otak memang penuh dengan ruang kosong :D

Jadi ingat pembahasan Tudang Sipulung Angingmammiri bulan November yang lalu. Kebetulan saat itu lagi pulang ke Makassar dan bisa menghadiri acara bulanan itu. Apakah fenomena micro-blogging yang membuat para blogger perlahan-lahan meninggalkan ruang kreasinya, dan menuju ke ruang 140 karakter saja? Atau perubahan sifat blogger yang sekarang kebanyakan lebih komersil? Atau hanya sekedar rasa jenuh saja? Yang bisa menjawab pertanyaan-pertanyaan tersebut adalah masing-masing blogger yang mengalaminya.

Untuk saya, mungkin ada pengaruh dari mood yang memang sedang naik turun beberapa tahun terakhir. Mungkin juga karena terlalu sibuk, sampai tidak punya waktu untuk diri sendiri lagi. Yang pasti, blog ini tidak akan pernah saya hapus.. kecuali hostingnya udah bangkrut :P

Kenapa? Supaya saat saya kembali ingin menuangkan kata-kata, masih ada ruang kosong yang bisa dipakai untuk menempatkan kata-kata tersebut :)

But you’ll come back each time you leave
‘Cause, darling, I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream

Reps Council Election : Q&A and Video

Hi all,
This is a post related to the Mozilla Reps Council election. Every 6 months, 3 or 4 Mozilla Reps (depending on the election cycle) are elected to sit on the Mozilla Reps Council for a 1 year term. The elections ensure that the program stays true to its core values of participation, accountability and transparency.
