Life Lesson: Circle of Patience

Being patience is not as easy as said. Need extra sweat and strong willing. Sometime feel tired, sometime want to give up, sometime dont want to try it again.
Complicated problem, cannot involve, anger, and stuck
The tear is about to explode, though it wont because of self control.
To understand what is Allah's plan to your life is a long journey and sometime meet the seperate dots.
Limited space to express me, to shout my willing. I close my eyes.
Allah, I dont doubt You and I wont.
Allah, please drop by a while, touch me and help me breath.
Allah, I know I cannot surrender, but I need You to hold my back.
Allah, please stay close and let me walk on this circle of patience.

- To cry is legal, to give up is not forbidden -

Gloria Hamel and Independence Day : Indonesia 71st

Today is the Independence Day for Indonesia
In every institution, school, office..everywhere is celebrating it with ceremony and raised the Indonesian's flag.
In national level, the ceremony usually held in Istana Merdeka, its like White House in USA.
The one who has task to do this raising flag, is a group of talented students, I think they are around 15 and 16 yo from across Indonesia. They're selected and trained for about a month for a march before the D day, the group called Paskibraka (Pasukan Pengibar Bendera Pusaka). Recently one of the selected students, her name is Gloria, she been found has france passport, which is mean that she is not Indonesia citizen, the government withdrawn her from the group. This issue as usuall spreading in media so fast, pros and cons, and yet at the end, our President, Jokowi, allow her to be part of the group even only at the raise down flag's ceremony, but, as Gloria said in media that she wont ever forget this moment.
What I want to share is, about Gloria's nationalism, although his father is france and mother is Indonesian, she said she will choose Indonesia as her nationality. This should be appreciated, she lives in Indonesia since she was born, study and grow up here...so make sense if she love Indonesia.
Giving a second chance and opportunity, Bapak Jokowi has this kind of sense, and it really relieve when finally he giving back Gloria's destiny to be part of Paskibraka.
Celebrating Independence Day, I think is also mean to believe that there always chance and opportunity when you really work hard and sincere in doing something. What happen to Gloria is destiny and its written in every human's hands...

Rio Haryanto, F1, Indonesia, Independence Day

Rio Haryanto, who is he? he is the 1st Indonesian racer who join the F1, yes the 1st time
It is great achievement, of course, I admitted indeed a good achievement. Rio has a good personality, humble, charming, and religious man.
But, to be part of F1 thru Manor team, need to pay a lot of money and if I am not wrong it reached more than IDR 200 Bill.
I am proud of him, however, in other hand I feel that those bunch of money will able to make hundreds or perhaps thousand children in Indonesia for school.

A dilema, for Rio, being part of F1 is for Indonesia, his country, and he is representing Indonesia to the world
But if the cost is too much, is it worth only for one Rio?
There are so many Rio's in Indonesia, who also I believe and want to be representing Indonesia to the world, but lack of money and opportunity, then they cannot make it

I feel bad, because up to know there are many children living in the street to make money
I want them to go to school
My dream there are no drop out student because their parent is not able to pay the school feel
I wish that education in Indonesia will be improved, the system, the teacher, everything

Today is one day before celebrating Indonesia's 71th Independence Day
I love Indonesia to my bones
Never ending hope for better Indonesia

- Dark is black, shadow is grey, bone is white, and blood is red. Glory for Indonesia-

Full Day School

Recently, the education minister has plan to apply full day school for student in Indonesia, the idea is to prevent student to go to mall/hanging out after school time.
The public reaction in generally is negative. Mostly parents did not agree to this idea. Well I am not a parent yet, but I also totally not agree.
If I throwback time, when I was student, the study time was up to 12.30 PM, sometime I need to stay longer at school, because there was additional class…tired, boring and not effective
Since elementary to university, I went to government institution, and somehow I thought that it might be better, if in basic education kinder garden to elementary, I went to private institution which they have better education system. I see the progress in my nieces.
However, private institution or school, yet they have good system, but the cost is also expensive and not every parent is able to send their children to this kind of institution.
I wish the current education minister will be able to see in general the education problem in Indonesia, rather than come up with such weird idea, full day school, which big NO from me.
Education is important, every children in Indonesia is able to study to the highest level with low cost and if possible for free. Big HOPE and I wish it will come true

- My pray, hope, dream, wish, is a better Indonesia, the land of my blood-

My Song: Your Type

The lyric is good and also the music…I want to have it in my blog
Your Type by  Carly Rae Jepsen
Taken from metrolyrics.com

I used to be in love with you
You use to be the first thing on my mind
I know I'm just a friend to you
That I will never get to call you mine

But I still love you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I love you
I didn't mean to say what I said
I miss you, I mean it, I tried not to feel it
But I can't get you out of my head
And I want you to miss me
When I'm not around you
I know that you're in town
Why won't you come around
To the spot that we met

I'm not the type of girl for you?
And I'm not going to pretend
I'm the type of girl you call more than a friend
And I break all the rules for you
Break my heart and start again
I'm not the type of girl you call more than a friend

I bet she acts so perfectly
You probably eat up every word she says
And if you ever think of me
I bet I'm just a flicker in your head

But I still love you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I love you
I didn't mean to say what I said
I miss you, I mean it, I tried not to feel it
But I can't get you out of my head
And I want you to miss me
When I'm not around you
I know that you're in town
Why won't you come around
To the spot that we met

I'm not the type of girl for you?
And I'm not going to pretend
I'm the type of girl you call more than a friend
And I break all the rules for you
Break my heart and start again
I'm not the type of girl you call more than a friend
I'll make time for you (time for you-ooh)
I'll make time for you (time for you-ooh)

I love you, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I love you
I didn't mean to say what I said
I miss you, I mean it, I tried not to feel it
I can't get you out of my head

I'm not the type of girl for you
And I'm not going to pretend
I'm the type of girl you call more than a friend
And I break all the rules for you
Break my heart and start again
I'm not the type of girl you call more than a friend
I'll make time for you (time for you-ooh) 4X

Pulang Kampung - Going Back Home

In Indonesia there is tradition in celebrating Lebaran Holiday (Moslem Celebartion). It called pulang kampung/mudik (going back to hometown).
Some people are work out of his origin to find better life and opportunity, including my fam. My father is from a small city in central java, the city is klaten.
When I was 3 yo, my father got better work and we all moved to bali. More than 30 years, we are living in bali. Usually, in celebrating Lebaran, my fam will do pulang kampung, and it also happen this year.
Going back to my howetown is one of the best thing, well the food, the people, the air, everything is feel different. I love it!
Meet my family, my aunties, uncles....my childhood friend....God everything, I missed them all
I feel blessed....

---Allah give me so many things, I couldnt ask for more, am I?----

Song Joong Ki

Descendants of the Sun.
A drama that rise this actor to the peak. Song Joong Ki. First time I like him, when he was played as Kang Ma-ru in drama The Innocent Man. This was his first drama where he got the main man role.
Lots people like the drama, but after this drama Joong-ki was went to military service and off from entertain industry for about 2 years.
Descendants of the Sun, is kind of comeback drama after he finished his military service. This drama is totally success.
Joong-ki role as captain in special force is really match him.
I can say this drama is one of the best Korean dramas that I ever see
You nail it Joong-ki. Well done!

---Hard work bonus is good result---
