It is a really nice, sophisticated guidebook written in English. You will find inside such helpful information as prayer motions, dress code, food you must not eat, challenges you might meet in your journey as a new Muslim and more.

For more than 2 years I have been intrigued by the tee I got from WordCamp Indonesia 2010. It has a line on its back, “Code is poetry.”
On many websites I found, “Coders write.”
Huh? What the heck are they talking about?
Starting from NOW, I am ready to live an organized life.
I notice 4 areas of my life where I have been too messy:
- Lifestyle, including health
I am re-thinking about everything. It is way past those years when I could recklessly say, “You know what? I’ll just live for today. Tomorrow? Meh.” When I am fully recovered from dengue fever, I will immediately work on planning goals and strategies to achieve them, including organizational systems that might help me.
Have no fear of perfection. You’ll never reach it.
Today I did something spontaneous. On my way to the office, I stopped by a beauty salon and had my hair cut.
I have never had a haircut like this before. I could not even tell the stylist what I really wanted, so I just let her did her thing. My fiancee, Ibnu, said I looked like cute girls in anime, hahaha…
