READ & DOWNLOAD Ä PDF, DOC, TXT or Book Û Dee LestariAs I huge fans of unhappy nding I favorite it Some of short stories are bitter and melancholic I love Lara Lana Sikat Gigi and Sepotong Kue Kuning So hopeless romantic how very character in the story above is stuck in an affair or forbidden love or love someone secretly Just like Lana Tio and Indi Should be Black as HellStrong as DeathSweet as Lovex Reading from its title Filosofi Kopi The philosophy of Coffee one might think that the book is filled with collections of xciting pic stories that offer a fresh perspective about the popular roasted brown seeds we know as coffee However to my dissapointment the book is not all really about coffee There is only one story that s associated with the book s title The rest are merely love stories and by saying this I don t mean to dislike the bookThe book in overall doesn t allure its readers into a deep thought It is just a series of simple casual stories to read when you are whiling away It doesn t reuire a lot of time nor a great amount of Black Heart, Red Ruby energy to finish the book in my case I was on the last page of the book in 90 minutes or soEven though this book is one uick read it doesn t sound kitschy They are comprised of lots of little nuggets of inspiration and flicks of imagination that are reallynjoyable Some of the stories are good but some are just barely ven however It s discernible to me that the author Dee really put xceptional New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood efforts writing them Lastly agreeing with the title the book to me is a sub for a cup of coffee it accompanies a lonely heart on a cold windy night keeps you busy in the middle of a crowded cafe it is also a great working companion and a great starter of the day as it is a loyal friend amidst of a waitSo I believe if you re looking for a book that talks great theories and philosophies about coffee this is definitely not the book you re looking for rather if you re simply looking for a cup of coffee and can t find one I m confident this book will do just fine Thanks to Amang for lending me the book I hope I can drop by the office this week to return the book Dee never disappoints Another book I ve read but forgot to update To me this book is like a bible I read it religiously almostveryday Especially at night when i can t sleep Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey easily Not that this book makes me sleepy but it makes me sleep with a smile The books consists of some short stories with different themes I like Dee s writing She picks some ordinary words and put them all together in anxtraordinary sentence I ca I ve always had a strange fascination for short stories and the wonderment that comes with these little chapters in particular only furthered that #fascination I find myself so inspired with the incredible power that #I find myself so inspired with the incredible power that with only a few short pages I don t know where it first began really this strange yearning almost to write as many words as possible I guess it stemmed from those school xercises that mphasized on the number of words rather than the actual value of your written work though I suppose the prompt was meant to incorporate the two But as a kidteenager who knew so little about I suppose the prompt was meant to incorporate the two But as a kidteenager who knew so little about world writing with a specific amount of words can be a daunting task That meant including a whole lot of bullshit consisting of redundant arguments and repetitive words in order to make that ЯED expected number of words That sort ofxercise which you do through years of primary middle and then high school sticks around as a force of habit ven when you know it s not a great feature These days I try to focus less on the number of words and on the uality of any ssay but uality also means information and when
s an abundance of it it s a tricky task to navigate your way which ones to include or omit and that s also something I m still learning to accomplish Don t think that all that didn t have a thing to do with the book it does It s what makes these stories ven precious the way that they are so simply narrated and at times without fuss just straight to. Pemaknaan kembali kembali kopi Buddha Herman surat tak tarkirimkan cinta sejenis yang manis atau apa pun membuktikan Dee tetap memesona Kalau kemarin panitia Nobel sastra masih maju mundur dengan nama Pramoedya sekarang bisa memaknai kembal. The main idea but still very heartfelt and ven poetic That could be Moreno extra challenging in Indonesian mind you where redundancies pretty much makes the chunk of ourxchanges or at least that seems to be the case in my own humble opinion It s hard to pick a favourite really because Monsieur Pain every chapter was a gem in itself The story of Herman makes me wonder about the things we look for in life and the choices we make in life whereas the tale about the toothbrush reminds me of hope in love There s also the story of Rico which prompts me to think about life in a magnified way sadly not asasy as it sounds in a world filled with skepticism and ridicule over so many things that are actually valuable though perhaps not right away Thank you to my dear Sarah for gifting me this one as it once again reminds me of how much in Indonesian literature there are for me to A Spark of Light: the fearless new novel from the Number One bestselling author enjoy and learn from as well as the joys of reading in Indonesianspecially filosofi kopi story it is really inspiring to show you how there would be nothing s perfect above the sky there s still another sky above the most clever person there s still cleverer personno body has right to be so arrogant and claim their selves as the perfect onecoz God created you imperfect to meet another people that can make you feel perfect and help that person to feel perfect by your presence beside themthat s why you need love Dee Lestari is part of the Indonesian literature sub genre referred to as sastra wangi fragrant literature It s a label given at the turn of the 21st century to young and urban Indonesian women who wrote openly about gender sexuality politics and religion Ayu Utami s novel Saman is considered a uintessential xample of sastra wangi I am not sure if Laksmi Pamuntjak is part of this group but I would believe it So besides these two I have always heardthere s an abundance of it it s a tricky task to navigate your way
