Yeah… Kambing Guling

Monday, June 25, 2007.


It’s wonderful day for starting my week. I invited to the party in Gunung Utara. There was smoky goat meat… (daging kambing,,,,,) there … It was such a delicious food. Under the tower in Gunung Utara, we, IST/TEL department staffs stood in front of the building and ate that food.

I think it was a rare chance. Icha… poor you coz u r still in Senipah now. 🙂 If u were here…
Thank Pak Joedo who led this party.

We also met Pak Yoke… who is division head in IST division….
We are in a familiar situation coz some laughs spoiled there. But I think it’s not true or fake… coz people there not show their honest. I felt that.

In the afternoon, incidently i got some snack from Mr Johannes. Mas Hadi and I got it… ! 🙂 Poor u agung and Sabana… We’ve got some Pookies…
THen I was called by Irvan to accompany him back home. An incidently again… I met Tyas, with her friends. I was vry excited coz it’s not very predictable b4. 🙂 It means that I can go touring in Balikpapan by her, beautiful girl that I’ve met here…. 🙂

What I’ve got today?
I learnt data network again from Mas Hadi. Thank Mas Hadi! But I should fix it tomorrow. I forgot to configure some IP address and router/switch brand.

And…. It’s suprised me coz my mentor, Mbak Didi, said that I will be assigned to CPA next week. I hope I will be the one who get lenty of knowledge experience there…

Saturday, June 23, 2007.
Last night I joined jogging in Total employees club. I followed jogging activity start at 5.30 pm, the time after work. I jogging surrounding the mountains in Pertamina housing and several mild forest.

Hoooo… How sweaty I was…

I’ve got a bottle of Ades mineral water and two ‘cek Wan’. I also met several people who mostly works in petrophysics. They are Haris, Risha, Andy, Pak Joko, etc. After that I carried to my kos2an by a motorcycle with Haris. Then I was tired and went to sleep.

In the morning I got up at 6.43 am. It’s such a nice sleep.

And then On Saturday, I went to play badminton. From 8 am – 12 am… It’s such an interesting activity coz it’s my hobby since I was a child.

Same as I did on Jogging last night, I met Haris, Lulus, Andy, Jerry, Pak Joko, and Mas Ary. They are mostly from Petrophysics. Then I had breakfast and lunch in warung near to the Sport Building. What u see? A girl who serve the food is very beautiful 🙂 It made me more spiritous…

Ok… meanwhile at night I will go to Fantasy Mall… But I don’t know the direction at all.

Finally, I didn’t go there. Yudi, Irvan, and I only went to Ramayana Department store. We was just looking around the store and stayed in Book Store for a while. On the way we went to home, we bought kebab, in kebab turki. THere were many people were waiting 4 that food. That made us want to buy that food.

Next Monday… Tyas will come to Balikpapan. She is my ITB students Choir friend. Her hometown is here, Balikpapan. So, I asked her to carry me go walking around this town. Yeah, I hope it will be wonderful.

Oh… I miss my family. But we live separately. My mom and Dad live in Lampung, My sister lives in Solo… Then I live in Balikpapan for 2 months. I hope they are in a good health and happy…

Friday, With Seafood in Kebun Sayur…

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

dsci0002.jpg dsci0001cpy.jpg

I went to the office as usual. I did my visio task… from Mas Hady. I learnt network topology… that connecting router, router-switch, and switch. Actually, I had known network topology between balikpapan, jakarta, senipah, etc. yEAH… actually the network within balikpapan itself is very reliable, bcoz the type of topology is ring topology. But, the network type between each site is only bus topology. It means, there are no redundancy system within its network. Therefore, the system will not reliable if only one of the hub/link is down.

Then at break time… I went to Kebon Sayur with Mas Agung and Mbak Didi (my mentor). I went there by angkot. We ate seafood there. Mbak Didi ate Bawal Fish, while me and Agung ate cumi-cumi (squid). It’s very interesting coz I treated by mbak Didi. 🙂

THen in the afternoon, I joined jogging club. I met several people, mostly from petrophysics department. A person that I knew first is Andy’s, my senior mate in High School. Then, I knew Andy’s friends, include Pak Joko, a person who is contracted by total, from Schlumberger.

Oh… tomorrow I will play badminton. 🙂

I didn’t do any important things today. I just went to office… fulfill my journal and continue my report.

Agung’s hometown is Jogjakarta. Same as me…He was an SMA2 student. His academic background is Electrical Engineering D3 in Sanata Dharma University and continue to UGM… He also goes to Catholic Church.

While Hamzah is Singaporean.
We all discused a lot of things about anything. From celebrities, TV serial and music that are popular in Singapore to telecommunication job.

Icha will go to Field tomorrow. She borrowed my red clothes=trouser, safety shoes, and helmet. Icha, Rida and I went to my kos2an and took that stuffs. I don’t hv any plan to go to fields. I hope my mentor will arrange my field trip. Hopefully She will guide me in that field trip. 🙂

Weekend in Balikpapan



There are such a lot of places in Balikpapan. But.. i think they are not really interesting. In Saturday afternoon, Yudi and I went to Melawai Beach. Indeed… it’s not really a tourist beach cos it’s only ‘food vacation’ on the beach. There are a lot of people there and eat food there. Many people sell food like Bakso, Noodles, Degan, etc. It’s like in Java… coz lots of people here are Javanese and the food are Javanese too.

But… one thing that I can remember. I found the place… with the green grass, near to the beach mouth… and I could see the sunset early in the afternoon. I kept picture bcoz i brought my digital camera. Oh,…. it’s a good picture… I think. Next time I will upload it here.

Btw, I also visited Merdeka Court, Balikpapan Plaza (again)…

If u are Balikpapan native… U can imagine that we walked from Merdeka Court to Balikpapan Plaza! oh… it’s too far… I think it’s 6 km. Oh… 🙁 How tired I was!

Then on Sunday, I went to Church with Andi, my senior in High School. We went there by motorcycle(bike). Yeah… then I was treated by him. Oh,…. how happy I was, right!

B4 I went to church, I went to Mas Nanang’s Kos2an. I was also treated Mi ayam near to his kos2an. His kos2an is near to Novotel! And it’s wonderful. I can see beach if I went to its balkon!.

Thanks God.

The 1st day of Internship or Job Training


Finally… I started this intership program.

How did I feel? I was excited.

from Pacific Hotel at 7 am, I arrived at Total E&P office at 7.10 am. Before that I had breakfast at that Hotel first. And I gathered with other friends in the same program and other programs like recruitment of Total.

When I arrived at total office, I discussed with other friends like Gatot(Geologi 02), Ryan(TL03), etc. They are candidates in Total..

Then I entered that office and met Ms Apri (HRD) and I filled the identification card.

After that, I introduced myself to other employees there. Firstly, I met Pak Joedo, who is the manager of IST/TEL. He graduated from ITB (angk. 88). He is very nice and easy going cos he always gave us a guide to other employees and make us smile.

Before we introduced us to other employees, we were explained much of topics of telecommunication problem. There are many divisions in this departement. There are two categories. They are TOM (Operation and Maintenance) and Project&Method. We have two chances to join in both of that categories. It’s such a good thing, right?

Both of the categories there can be divided in many division. FOr TOM, there are 4 parts. They are Radio and telephony, Network infrastructure, Telecommunication facilities, and Field. I choosed Telecommunication facilities and take CCTV as my topic. Beside that, For project and Method, I hv a chances take a training in project.. that still in progress. The project is making networking from production place better than b4 and upgrade all of the links.

In the middle of the job training. I also had a lunch in Pacific Hotel. I had no wonder coz the cost of this hotel bill is very expensive. I think… IDR 1 million per day. (include all facilities). Myfriend… (Tyos bro’ had checked out today!)

Btw, I don’t hv a kos-kosan… yet here. I think.. I should find that tomorrow. Coz I should check out next Thursday

I finished my first internship today… at 5.30 pm. .Finally, I arrived at hotel at 6 pm..

I should prepare all the matters like PDH and SDH tomorrow.
