MY BERRY FARM: Fresh Premium Strawberry Bandung

Strawberry is a sub-tropical fruit. It turns out that strawberry is actually not a berry family, but the genus is from the rose family (Rosaceae). Strawberry was first cultivated in the United States around 1835 and has become a widely grown plant in home gardens and widespread in agriculture. All cultivated strawberries are developed from four main species. The first, the wood strawberry (Fragaria vesca), is a fragile woodland species native to the mountains of Mexico, South America, and the West Indies. Meadow strawberry (Fragaria virginiana) in eastern North America was introduced to Europe during the 17th century. The beach strawberry (Fragaria chiloensis) is native to the mountainous regions of the Western Hemisphere, and a fourth cultivated strawberry species developed classified as Fragaria moschata is common in Central Europe. Most of the strawberry varieties cultivated today were developed from the North American varieties, known as Wilson, Crescent, Sharpless, and Longworth.

Currently, strawberry is widely cultivated in Indonesia, especially in the highlands. Many strawberry varieties are grown in Indonesia, such as California, Kelly Bright, Mencir, etc. Strawberry is a favorite fruit, for topping or garnish for cakes, jams/purees, smoothies/juices, puddings, or fruit salads.

Me Time Tips

Self-love has many benefits. I think it's one of the life satisfactions. We should give more positive attitude towards our life and encourage us to pick up the good habits. I love to have my self-love by doing "ME TIME". 

Anyway, what do you usually do in your free time? I'd prefer to do something I love, doing my hobbies or things that make me happy, such: reading a book or magazine, going for a walk, simply having a cup of coffee or tea then daydreaming. We all know that self-love is important, so let's find what works for ourselves and completely let go for as-many-minutes-as we have. I do really thank God, because I have a supportive life partner who always gives me time to break from all the routine. 

Here are some "me time" tips that you can do in your spare time:

Work from Home (Remotely), Why Not?

It's my last business trip before the pandemic (February 5th, 2020)

Work from Home 

I've been working from home since 2013 as a content writer. I was taking a job as a full time freelancer after I resigned from one institution as a teacher. I really thank God and always try not to take everything for granted. Being a freelancer is quite challenging, yet interesting. The good things is - I can finish all my task and look-after my family at home at once. 

In 2017, I worked as digital marketing officer, at that time I came to the office several times in a week, but I signed the MoU (of course) as a freelancer as well, so I could finish the rest of my office-tasks at home. I really enjoyed my job for sure. 

Last two years I chose different working path, it's been more than a year I work at the office on weekdays. I work in one of radio stations in Bandung. When the first time I was hired, I was placed in the content and digital marketing division. However, after 3 months dealing with on-air division, I was entrusted to jump-right-in to take care of the entire on-air program as well. It's like my dream came true, cause radio is my passion since long time ago. It's so exciting, yet challenging!  

In 2019 Coronavirus attacks world, then in February 2020 the virus strikes Indonesia. Because of that, in the last 9 months I work remotely from home again. Remote work is a working style that allows professionals to work outside of a conventional office environment. I build communication and coordination with all radio crew remotely.  

Here are my working field that I handle remotely:

Stay-at-Home Activity Ideas During COVID-19

We're now in the middle of global pandemic. 😢

March, 2, 2020 President Jokowi has announced that two Indonesians have tested positive for COVID-19, it's the first two confirmed in our country. He calls all Indonesian people to stay at home; self isolation and social distancing. 

Corona virus is a serious infectious disease. What can you do to protect yourself, reduce corona virus infection, and prevent spreading the virus to others :
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Eat healthy food and don't forget to cook meat or fish thoroughly. 
  • Drink water, take vitamins or supplements. 
  • Do some home exercises to keep your body healthy.
  • Cover mouth when coughing or sneezing with flexed elbow.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone with cold/flu like symptoms.
  • Do not touch your our eyes, nose, face, or mouth if our hands are not clean.
  • Stay home, social distancing, and self-isolate from others if we feel unwell.
It's been more than a month after President announced this pandemic. My family has been staying at home. I and my husband have been working from home and my son studying from home. Corona Virus in Indonesia is spreading so fast. 

Last update April 27, 2020, 02:03 GMT there are 8.882 confirmed, 1.107 recovered,  and 743 death. This fact is really making us so sad. The thing that never imagined before. 

What can you do at home during this pandemic? I have some great activities with my family. Here are home activity ideas during COVID-19 that you can do with your family as well.

The Influence of Radio (World Radio Day 2020)

I officially joined one of radio stations in Bandung in 2019. I really got into radio since I was a young girl. Actually, I've written about World Radio Day celebration last year, and I'm gonna take another point of view. 

13 February was proclaimed as World Radio Day by the Member States of UNESCO in 2011 and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2013, it is to commemorate the founding of United Nations Radio in 1946. Radio can be a powerful medium for humanity in diversity. As we all know that radio is one of the early contributors of mass media, it is a technology that has power to affect many sectors; education, culture, personal thoughts, etc.
