Words

In every situation, i would like to say, honesty would be the best diplomacy.

Here i am, often caught in a problem where seems that the solution is none but honesty. Straight up ahead, face the person itself, tell the story, get yelled, and apologize. When this happen, there was no need to tell the whole story. Just apologize for the mess. No story, no excuse, no defense.

Well, well.  Here i am again with my evil.

I have finished my term from one, yet i could say i am not satisfied.  And here i am after some storm almost get on my foot to met another evil.  This evil comes from my identification on the last term.

Hmm…. I said.  There are lots to be fixed.  I must dare to say that i have almost conquer one evil and more are coming.

One of my best friend would be gone to Europe for two  years.  And this has gave me another sensation of “when things must go on, you couldn’t just stay still.” 😛

Social Working Group “Melati”

The Social Working Group “Melati” is a group of volunteers that focus on children.  They started as a mobile library that brought boxes of books from one kampong to others to let children have opportunity to read.  Yea.  Reading is such luxury for most people in Indonesia (can anyone provide statistic here?).  The high priced of books was one of the reason that supported by lack of buying ability from community.

Starting from that point, Melati has mission to reduce the gaps and give those children that opportunity.  After times, their work was then improved by providing a book corner for street and poor children in the southern part of Jakarta.  In this corner, volunteers were gather to provide children education and also give them opportunity to dream.  Yea.  If one should be a great man, the one should have dream for dreams gave people objective and urge to pursue.

In this what so called basecamp, they open the house each saturday and sunday and let children come: to read, to draw, to sing, to learn english and one in a time take children out to interesting places to let them see the different insight and stimulate them to thing, to dream and to wonder.

In this event, that called outing, volunteers were working tremendous effort to fundraising by selling self made items such as pins, t-shirt, sticker, mugs, decorative pencil, chocolate, and more.  With their “independent” philosophy, the out for providing the fund by themself and some small amount were expected from companies.

I just joined them for a couple of weeks and i can see how hard were they working.  In every opportunity, children were invited to events hold by many stakeholders.  For example that i found very interesting is the yesterday’s “Children Reading Centers Olympic” which in Bahasa is “Olimpiade Taman Bacaan Anak-anak = OTBA”

Unfortunate to say that i was unable to see by myself what is this OTBA due to i went for a survey for the outcoming Outing.  But from several times explanation from different people, this OTBA seems to be a packets of competition for children from many reading centers.  The Melati Reading Center have wont the first and second prize for painting.  Well done children.

So, for the next outing, the Melati has decided to brought the theme “Kembali Kampoeng” or back to the village.  The purpose is to take children see the life in villages that different than the environment the life in.  We are hoping that they could appreciate more on environment and hopefully they would be some adoption of the way of life in the village they visit.

So, if you happen to met with volunteers from Melati and offer you some merchandise, do not hesitate to take 5 or 7 items and donate some money for the children.  😀

Cheers,

First post in July 2008

Hello there again world!

Here i am again.  Putting something to this gigantically hectic cyber world.  Wondering how long this writing be recorded in cyber world.  Paper could survive up to hundreds of years.  Writing in paper could survive thousands of years.  How long could virtual writing could survive?  A seconds perhaps?  But how bout the server?  Could there be still cunks of everybodys writing there?  Even tough it is deleted.

For those times when i couldn’t write in this particular blog, many surely had happened.

I found spiritual lack of me that needed to be fixed.  Well, if it is a software, it should called major fixed of alpha version.  Yup.  It is still alpha and it evolving.  Hope it was for better 🙂

Actually it was some kind of reminder on what to fix.  Only in other way of it.  Just cool.

And you know what, it was affirmative again that speaking of your problem could help.  And you just need to find the right person to push that button to improve and move forward.  Can’t wait to write more on what i found in the next posts.

Cheers,

Bandung [1-8 May 2008]

I always found Bandung as interesting city. I was born in Bandung but never know her very well. After 1 year i was born, my family moved to Jakarta. And I stayed in Jakarta until i was 14. And i realize that i’ve spent so little time to know Bandung more.

The roads, the people, the market, the building, the park, the cafe, the nature. All!!!

My Old Elementary School

I was having my elementary school at SDN Cilandak Timur 04 Petang.

SDN = state managed elementary school

Cilandak Timur = the name of the sub district where the school located

04 = the number of the school. i don’t now whether the number is for the sub district, district or the province. I just don’t get it

Petang = means afternoon. the school building has actually two schools. the 03 and 04. the 03 runs in the morning and the 04 in the afternoon

This is the school’s gate. It has been years since i visit the school. I thing it has been 12 years since i last visit it. It sure has changed A LOT!!! The gate was once so simple with only wooden gate. It is now nice iron and concrete.

My Mother Birthday: 29 March 2008

My mother is a tough woman.  She love plant, cooking, and tidy up our home.  Her hobby with plant has made our home green and nicer.  I love what she made up to our home.  I can’t imagine what happened if she was not around.

She is having her birthday this 29 March.   I’ve kissed her on her cheek and saying: Happy Birthday Mom.  And she cried with happiness.

Love you mom.

Just Because of Meeting Snack — the following event

As my previous post, having a snack from a meeting has put me in participant of the meeting. The meeting that then took 2 hours that made me to postpone my other engagement and tasks.

The meeting was discussing our communications related strategy. And for this, there will be a workshop on the following monday. I had no idea at that time what was this workshop all about? Never i heard of such.

Apparently, since I participate in the meeting, i was obligated to join the workshop. Which i didn’t attend. I only thought that i was informed of this workshop only since i join the preparation meeting. Which was then Communication Director asked me of my absent. *sigh*

Lesson Learned:

NEVER, NEVER EVER AGAIN, took meeting snack that you didn’t participate. NEVER!!!
