Posts Tagged ‘announcement’

Just a brief post.

I’ve just emailed this announcement to some mailing lists and friends:

It’s been a while; almost three months from the first launch of Eyesia (http://www.eyesia.co.cc/), a website/online magazine of Indonesian students in Australia. And after such a long waiting, a “tough break”, we are now glad to share this news: the second edition of Eyesia is finally available for viewing!
The articles are not as many as the 1st one in quantity, but some sections might be worth checking out. Some of them are: a note of Mt Buller trip (Travel), a soccer-playing robot team and the Indonesian guy member (Hobby) – plus a glimpse of one the games (Video), book reviews and some songs (Simply Words), a couple of short and not-so-short news (Newswire), as well as ‘conversation’ about public transportation (Focus), and of course new photo gallery and recipe.
Please, have a look. And we’d appreciate any comments. Thanks and enjoy.
Regards,

-The Eyesia Team-

While this is the Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) version:

Sudah cukup lama sejak edisi perdana diluncurkan, dan memang cukup memakan waktu dan menguras tenaga [part-time] kami dalam menindaklanjutinya. Tapi akhirnya.. Eyesia edisi-2 sudah bisa dinikmati online.
Tidak sebanyak yang pertama artikel-artikelnya, namun barangkali masih lumayan menarik untuk ditengok. Kali ini, kita antara lain punya sebuah jurnal trip ke Mt Buller (Travel), artikel kecil tentang tim sepakbola robot dan salah satu membernya (Hobby) – berikut cuplikan pertandingan (Video), ada beberapa review buku & lirik lagu (Simply Words), serta sejumlah berita/feature singkat (Newswire). Plus, tentu masih ada bahasan utama, yaitu tentang public transport (Focus), dan galeri foto baru serta resep.
Silakan bagi yang brminat, singgahlah sejenak. Silakan beri komentar juga. Terima kasih.
Salam,

Can’t say more. Just figure it out yourselves guys. 😉

Just another story of my days – or you may just call it an “announcement”. 🙂

……

And so, in case people don’t’ know, besides the ‘obligation’ of being a journalist and a student of UTS Journalism, I really like to write. I like it even though I’m not very good at it (especially in English). One of the consequences then is, whenever I have the chance to take part on writing job or a competition for example, I would be interested to try.

And that last one was what happened a few weeks ago, when I was still right in the middle of several assignments. I entered two interesting competitions, which required just some samples of short writings, with of course a hope to win. However, no luck for me, I didn’t get selected.

Well, of course “luck” was not the main thing here. Actually, what I wrote were not good enough (yeah, that’s the problem). It’s a bit shameful though, because for the World Nomads Travel Scholarship for example, one of my friends already knew that I participated. 😀 Yet, the winner (Susannah Palk) and the three runner-ups (Lynette Willoughby, Mark Bailey and Emily Sim) are truly really good. Have a look, check their story entries here.

The second one, with just about one-paragraph of writing entry, was the SMH call for their “unofficial reviewers” of the Sydney Film Festival. And finally, here are the five chosen reviewers: Lee Winters, Veronica Holmes, Sneha Balakrishnan, Emma Rugg and Sevana Ohandjanian (the last two are UTS Journalism students). So far, they’ve been working great. You may check their interesting pieces of work here.

Another “no luck” thing I discovered just a few days ago is on my story for one of the UTS Journalism publications, the Precinct. Published in a new format, the current issue of this magazine has a range of interesting news and articles, mainly from around Sydney. However, the story I did – about an exhibition called “Dockside” at the NSW State Library – was probably not interesting or important enough to be included in this edition of Precinct, or maybe it was just lack in quality.

Well, hey, I still gotta cheer up, you know! 😀 Because luckily, there is one small thing I managed to get recently, in term of “competition”: winning the Rolling Stone’s trivia quiz. And the prize is a Cloverfield DVD (though I’m still wondering, why doesn’t it come yet?).

Finally, still like to talk about my writing, for those who might also have an interest on some easy journalism topics, I’d love to share here a couple of my blog entries, which I completed as a requirement for one of the class this semester. This task is quite interesting for me, as we may talk broadly about anything in relation to newspapers editing, designing and publishing. Here’s the link for the PDF file of those blog notes I made.

Hi All..!

Well, well, well! I’m blogging again. It took me more than two years since my last blogging activities, which was done for a group of friends actually. Yet, I’m not going to post anything new at the moment, as I’m still working on with the setting, categories of the content, etc. So, for a while, if you like, just read the page About My Blog there (you can click it on the top menu or the Pages section on side bar), or my former writings in My Old Archives page (in Bahasa Indonesia though).

Anyway, welcome to my blog! Enjoy.:)
