Weekly Photo Challenge: Treat

This week’s photo challenge theme is “Treat,” an intentionally open-ended prompt. For many, candies aren’t a favorite indulgence. Maybe you’re a savory food lover, or you’ve gone on a beautiful vacation to treat yourself. Perhaps some quiet time alone with a beloved novel is your greatest pleasure. This week, share with us a photo of something that you consider a marvelous treat.

One evening after a hard work day, I went to a pizza restaurant, ordered a cold lovely beverage and one big hot pizza with chilly and jalapeno. Those were not everything – one good book from Walter Isaacson to accompany me enjoying the evening. A full treat for my self.

Kacamata Virtual Reality Murah Meriah

Di kantor lagi keranjingan Virtual Reality setelah aku demokan betapa canggihnya teknologi yang dikembangkan Mbah Google ini. Ceritanya aku datang ke acara Google Pulse beberapa waktu yang lalu dan mereka mendemokan Google CardBoard.

Benda ajaib ini dimasukkan smartphone yang sudah diinstal aplikasi yang mendukung Virtual Reality. Aplikasi yang saya coba saat itu adalah trailer Insidious 3. Keren.. bisa lihat hantu di kiri dan kanan atau atas dan bawah hehehe…

Setelah terpukau dengan demo itu, besoknya langsung beli di Jakarta Notebook secara online. Besok paginya sudah nangkring di meja kantor. Harganya cuma dua puluh ribuan, dipaketkan dalam keadaan belum dirakit. Tenang saja di kertasnya ada angka untuk mempertemukan sisi-sisi yang harus disambung atau dilipat. Lensa cembung berjumlah dua juga disertakan, pastikan pasang bagian cekung depan mata kita dan bagian cembung mendekati layar hp. Magnet ada di samping digunakan untuk memilih menu di beberapa aplikasi.

Teman-teman di kantor langsung ketagihan juga dengan keajaiban kecil dari Google ini. Akhirnya teman kantor membeli versi canggihnya seharga 2oo-an ribu yang memiliki head strap, lensa bisa diadjust depan belakang dan kiri kanan. Foto berikut ini penampakan waktu testing Virtual Reality Glass.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall

This week’s challenge is WALL. My wall in my living room has three calligraphs that say: Allah SWT, Muhammad SAW, and Ayatul Kursi (Al Baqarah: 255).

My Wall

Here is the meaning of Ayatul Kursi:

“Allah! There is no god but He – the Living, The Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him Nor Sleep. His are all things In the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede In His presence except As he permitteth? He knoweth What (appeareth to His creatures As) Before or After or Behind them. Nor shall they compass Aught of his knowledge Except as He willeth. His throne doth extend Over the heavens And on earth, and He feeleth No fatigue in guarding And preserving them, For He is the Most High. The Supreme (in glory).”

Here is a youtube video contains 10 different qiraat of the ayat:
