Well, today is January 1, 2019. A new beginning. A new hope.
I am very excited to do something cool this year. Yeah, planning, learning, teaching! Repeat!
One of my motivation supplement is watching the inspirational videos via YouTube, especially from the figures or moments that inspire me to do something more useful, while we’re healthy – mentally and physically.
One of the video is as follows. A complete version of opening ceremony of Asian Games 2018. In HD format, that was just released a couple days ago on Dec 30, 2018 by the official channel of 18th Asian Games 2018. This opening ceremony was very epic and really AWESOME.
Beruntung sekali saya sempat meluncur ke sebuah YouTube channel dari seorang yang sangat inspiratif. Marina, namanya. Seorang Youtuber, entrepreneur, dan seniman dari Rusia yang saat ini tinggal di Silicon Valey. Saya rekomendasikan buat Anda semua karena karya-karya video di Youtube nya berkualitas dan patut diacungi jempol.
Salah satu topik yang dibahas olehnya adalah 9 kesalahan-kesalahan yang harus dihindari pada umur 20-an versinya. Apa saja kesalahan itu? Ini dia
Lupa bermimpi besar dan jangka panjang.
Tidak Bekerja keras, lupa karena masa umur 20-an itu merupakan masa yang paling produktif.
Beranggapan bahwa yang diinginkan langsung terjadi saat itu juga.
Membanding-bandingkan diri kita dengan kawan-kawan seangkatan.
Berusaha dan kekeuh banget untuk ber-sahabat dengan semua orang.
Tidak menjaga kesehatan.
Tidak menjaga hubungan baik dengan keluarga.
Beranggapan bahwa kamu terlalu tua untuk mulai belajar sesuatu yang baru.
Lupa bahwa dunia itu sempit a.k.a. hanya selebar daun kelor.
Mau dengar detailnya, silakan play button video nya Marina, ya! Enjoy!
My family and I went to Lampung during Holy Week 2017. For those who don’t know, Lampung is the
place located in southern part of Sumatra island. It is well-known with banana chips and kemplang (fish crackers) food product. Your flight requires 30 minutes from Jakarta. Short, isn’t it?
My elder sister and I planned that when Easter 2017, we must come together and spend time with Bapak and Ibu in Lampung.
Thank God we could realise it. We departed from Jakarta (Cengkareng) on Good Friday morning at 8am.
Just wanna share a bad experience when we took plane of Sriwijaya Air For Jakarta-Lampung route. The airplane was so stinky with dead fishes. A stewardees said that it was originated by previous passangers from Lampung to Jakarta. That stimulated Kiran to vomit. Luckily, the return journey from Lampung to Jakarta was so plesant. Kiran was not cranky.
Kemarin, tanggal 5 Mei 2016, isteri, kakak ipar, anak, babysitter, dan saya pergi ke International Convention Exhibition Serpong. Ada event yang namanya The big bad Wolf yang katanya ada lebih dari 2 jutaan buku impor dijual dengan harga murah. Acara diadakan di hall 9 dan 10. Kami ke tempat tersebut dari rumah jam setengah 2 siang. Sampai di tempat tujuan jam setengah 3. Parkiran penuh dan sampai2 banyak yang parkir di luar basement gedung. Saya untungnya maju terus dan bisa parkir di bawah basement hall 3.
Mau masuk ke gedung hall saja antri panjang… sempat ragu memperbolehkan Kiran dan isteri masuk soalnya rame banget. hehe… walaupun pada akhirnya saya memperbolehkannya masuk.
Hmmm… buku-buku yang kami beli adalah buku-buku untuk anak batita. Yang banyak gambar-gambarnya. Dan, mostly buku2 terbitan US yang dicetak di Cina. Harga-harganya relatif lebih mahal dibandingkan dengan buku-buku novel yang paperback.
Buat Anda yang belum mengetahui Taman Buah Mekarsari, tempat ini adalah pusat budi daya pelestarian buah tropika, dan diklaim sebagai yang terbesar di dunia. (Sumber dari sini). Lokasinya ada di Cileungsi, Kabupaten Bogor. Untuk mencapai tempat tersebut, Anda dapat dengan mudah menggunakan kendaraan umum atau kendaraan pribadi. Jalan menuju ke sana sangat mulus. Dengan mengendarai kendaraan pribadi dari Jakarta, Anda dapat menggunakan jalan Tol Jagorawi, lalu exit Cikeas/Cibubur/Cileungsi. Sekitar 6 km dari exit tol atau 10 menit, Anda sudah sampai. Sebagai warga negara Indonesia, paling tidak Anda harus tahu keberadaannya, ya. Continue reading Tiga Hal yang Wajib Anda Lakukan di Taman Buah Mekarsari
Yuppy… I have gone to Senipah again. I have got lots of knowledge about Telecommunication activities in there. CCTV is my main topic. But I got other topics, such as PA GA (Public Address General Alarm), RTS (Radio Trunking System), PABX, Radio Marine, NDB (Non Directional Rdio Beacon), etc.
I met Pak Gatot who leads the Senipah Telecommunication activity by himself. He is very kind and like to teach me. I also had a chance to help the contractor who was installing radio marine and amplifier of PA GA.
It’s such a wonderful experience, and I have done my vacation report in Bahasa. (But… I should finish my real OJT report in english…)
Friday, June 29, 2007
It was raining. I was disapointed coz my shoes were wet. Oh… until in the afternoon I kept my feet wet because of that…
Planly, I wanted to meet Pak Alam. I just wanted to discuss something ’bout my topic… again about transmit/receive frequency there.
Unfortunately, He was in heavy load work, there. They had guests to BER test. Yeah,… today I didn’t know what to do.
But… It was a miracle!!!
Andien’s birthday is today!!!!!!!!
It was my lucky.
Tyas, Sansan, Nina, Johny, Tigor, Yudi, Rahmadi, Reswa, Rida, and I came to that birthday celebration! Haha.
My lucky was still goin on at night… Coz Sabana treated me in Pizza Hut!!!
Sabana, Pak Aang, Pak Ucup, Irvan, and Yudi joined Sabana’s birthday party at Pizza Hut!!!
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…
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.
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!.
