Udinus Webmaker Party 2013 & Mozkopdar SMG

When I was a little kid, I used to play with mud or sand to build my own hand-made house. The moment when I turning my imagination into hand made house was really exciting. And now, as I grew older I feel that I found the same excitement when I design my own web (blog, web-page, whatsoever). I feel that web is a new home for me.

And when the first time I know the Webmaker project from Mozilla, I knew that this gonna be more exciting. More people will able to understand how to build the web, with the very easy tools they have. So here we are, the first Webmaker Party in my campus (even it was the first time in town) was held last month, Desember 14th 2013 with the help of some peers I have from Open Source Community in my campus (Doscom).

We called it as a party but it was actually  a six-hours workshop (haha, but I hope everyone had fun). It was attended by about 40 students. And I even met 2 Mozillians from Malang, Jawa Timur who sneaking out within their internship time in Semarang (Thanks for coming, Insan and Alfin! (:

Though there was some trouble with the internet connection, but everyone was still excited to join the sessions. We're playing spectogram and turn out so many of them want to make e-commerce (I sniff the entrepreneur spirit here, haha).

Everyone is so excited playing with Thimble, X-Ray Goggles, and Popcorn Maker. And finally, we ended it with Zoomarang winning as the best group-project of the event.

Zoomarang team.

Can't get enough of the party, we held a second Mozillians meetup (#MozKopDarSMG) on the next day. A Mozilla representative from Jakarta, Mbak Rara was explaining Firefox OS project and I myself, explain about Firefox Student Ambassador Program. We had a lot of fun talking about Firefox OS and trying the FirefoxOS phone.

Can't wait to manage more event in the future! ^^

A love letter

Hello mom, my name is holiday. It's because we're miles apart and mostly meet just in my free time which is holiday.

I must say that you're the most independent woman I've ever known. You may not know it, but I adore you like, a lot. It's like you have nothing you afraid of except losing your family. You're such an amazing family-woman. I love you so.

You yelled a lot of times (I'm sure moms out there also did), but you always cook my favorite menus when I'm home (even without asking what I want to eat. You know it perfectly).

We know it exactly that we have a lot of difference. But as I grew older, I start to realized that my temper was a lot like yours. We just feel, sometime without saying. Tho I can say that I am more frank than you are (you can't deny).

And as you know, we have a terrible time back then when I was younger. I hate you sometime (I'm so sorry) and think that Dad love me more than you do. But now I even amazed, how could you resist having a super selfish daughter like me. I love you.

Aaaah, the point is I'm just trying to say..

Please do not mistaken. I'm not celebrating your getting-older day. I'm just a grateful daughter who celebrate the day when her mom was born. I'm so grateful I still have you here, and hope we can grow older together. Hmm sorry, no. I hope I'll never get older and be your forever-little-daughter.

Thanks for making me proud having a mom like you. I know I'm such a rebel but I really hope I have not failed you. Please, bear with me. I'll make you happy in my own way.

Just remember this, whatever I do, I will always love you from earth to the eternal world.

Your fortune
