Menelusuri Guntur Bumi, Behind The Stories

This Is not written by someone without any expertise on his/her field. Worth the read.

Saat itu, tahun 2012 silam, saya sedang ditugaskan di program infotainment Fokus Selebriti. Sebelumnya saya memegang investigasi news (berita). Kepindahan ke infotainment jelas berbeda dengan ranah yang saya kuasai sebelumnya. Tetapi diharapkan Fokus Selebriti yang karakternya investigasi dan indepht selebriti, dapat memiliki sentuhan investigasi ala news.

Salah satu berita yang sedang menghebohkan saat itu adalah isu nikah siri Guntur Bumi dengan Nuri Maulida. Isu ini kami dapatkan justru dari istri Guntur Bumi sendiri, yakni Puput Melati.

Saya mencoba memandang masalah ini dari pendekatan infotainment, mengenai selera pemirsa infotainment, dengan sentuhan investigasi ala news termasuk dalam menyusun alur cerita yang ditayangkan.

Dari berbagai upaya yang dilakukan yakni berusaha memperoleh bukti, hanya sedikit yang bisa diperoleh yakni keterangan tetangga dan satpam di kediaman Nuri Maulida. Puput Melati juga tidak sepenuhnya terbuka kecuali secara off the record. Ini membuat kami kesulitan mengembangkan berita. Seluruh berita di media saat itu akhirnya jalan di tempat.

Tired of living

I'm tired. The title says it all. I'm planning on killing myself. Telling people closest to me doesn't even help at all. In fact, it just makes me even more willing to die.

I’m not going to marry

I'm not. I'm not going to marry and start a family. If anything, that's the scariest thing I've ever imagined. Just by playing the role as the eldest brother at home gave me occassional mental exhaust, small wonder I would just be committing suicide if I were a father.

Oh f*ck you, dynamic arrays and Excel’s VBA

I was thinking of using dynamic arrays to accomplish a small task in Excel's Visual Basic for Applications. I was drafting a small excel formula that would help me grade some students' test results. On execution, it always return the "Subscript out of range" error. I've tried many workarounds to keep using dynamic arrays while… Continue reading Oh f*ck you, dynamic arrays and Excel’s VBA

First Impression on Vainglory

If anything, this game is totally different from Mobile Legends despite them being of the same genre. First of all, now I understand why so many people said that MLBB is a shameless clone of League of Legends. Wow. I can't believe they can get away with it. In fact, I think I can say… Continue reading First Impression on Vainglory

Tired of online bullying in MOBA Games

If there's anything I've learned from playing Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, it's that I'm not good in teamwork. This game heavily relies on teamwork in its gameplay. If everyone plays their role correctly, choosing the right hero to counter what the enemy is playing, things are good. Sounds good, right? Things go as intended, pretty… Continue reading Tired of online bullying in MOBA Games

I think something big will come pouring down

Location: Indonesia University of Education (Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia), Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. Something seriously big will come in a few moments, so I'd better make haste to whatever I'm going to do. In fact, by the time I'm writing this, small drips of water is starting to shower.

Your abusive mouth bullying people in online games can only mean you're the noob you're berating against.
