A Process to be “Me”

You can’t choose another world.

Basically as human we must have interacted with many people : while working, hanging out, refreshing, playing social media, and so on. This all can create new perspective for us : positive or negative.

If we have strong commitment to something we believe, possibly environment will be colored because of our existency. Minimally, we will not change to be others. But if we have no it, we will alliniate to be someone. This all is a process to be “me”.

It shows that to be our selves is not easy things.

The question then is how to be “me” ? Keep learning and always commit to improve our selves.

As young generation living in this era is not easy. When we work for a beraucracy, there is limited change to optimize our creativity, to create breakthrough. When we create startup, we will work all the time with limited income we get. When we create new venture, hard to us to be new conglomerate because the old one will always dominate market. When we work just being employee with limited salary, hard for us to be independent.

Those conditions strongly convince that to be “me” with independency is hard even it always have chance. Isn’t life is struggle ? So, just hard work to be you.



That is a title of the playing movie. I watched last hours in CGV BEC. I give 9 of 10 rating for that film. As it’s title, it is about how to get something. The “thing” refers to someone. Then how interesting is it? Someone is daughter of a single parent, a father. She was lost contact misteriously. Her father then asked for help to the corp by phone. A detective namely Vick then run the job. She tracked it’s chronology detailly and professionally gave to Mr. Kim, Morgot’s father (a wanted girl), good service in handling the problem. Evidently the detective is suspected of this case. She designed this drama in order to her son not to be jailed after pushing Morgot to some cliff. Vick assumed that Morgot was died so only thing she could do was to make sure that everyone think that the girl was really dead.

A Puzzle

The good thing of the film is it’s puzzle is not easy to answer. Those were several suspect candidates : Morgot’s friend (more than one), detective Vick, Kim’s brother, and admitted old guy (then known as Vick’s conspiracy). This film is worth to watch.

Limited Chance to Write

This week was very busy for me. There were two events that must be prepared well. First is launching for PPID App that was held yesterday and second is first meeting for PPID internship that was held this morning. How to prepare them is not easy thing. Another one, I also did my research taking interview with several lecturers. This week I got seven, hope next week it will increase significantly.


This is a picture before Bu Dyah left meeting room after delivering materials about PPID ITB.

Public Lecture from The Seniors

This morning there was public lecture held by Faculty of Math and Natural Science ITB. This lecture was started in 2015, one year after my graduation. It’s initiator was Pak Hendra, a professor of Mathematics. I firstly interacted with him since my undergraduate when I was an activist. The prologue letter of my first indie book was delivered by him.

The senior that gave lecture today were Pak Bambang Hidayat (astronomer), Pak Susanto (chemist), and Pak Tjia (physicist). I have already known two of them well before. I think interesting lecture came from Pak Tjia that explain well history of physics department in ITB. He said that those were several world class physicist that do the research in Bandung, ITB. Two of them were student of nobel Laurette. Pak Tjia didn’t mention Hans in his lecture, I don’t know why. Hans is well known as a talented scientist in physics that have academic relation with Albert Einstein.

Maybe I will write an article in bahasa, hope me can finish in this weekend.

Days Before Deadline

Three days left to finish all questionnares provided by Information Commission of Republik Indonesia. Since monday, we worked like horse with doing several works in one time. As team coordinator, I have more responsible than others. I must plan strategy to finish everything before the end of time. Sunday’s evening I planned what we should do in the next time specifically program by program. The momment time happened today when in the morning before office, I opened a new feed of Instgram account of PPID Ministry of Finance. Yesterday (if not wrong) there was launching of new mobile application that was announced directly by its minister, Sri Mulyani. I delivered this information to my boss when I met spontanously in his office. He then asked me to create brief description about it in that time. After arriving in my office, I created a powerpoint several minutes then sent to him. He brought it in leaders meeting of campus (Rapim) this morning. If there is no obstacle, this agenda will be held in this friday. I hope in the remaining days, we can make the job done well.

Idul Adha 1439 H

This year I spent short holiday of Idul Adha at home. Even I didn’t pray Id because of travel, I still enjoyed the rest of time. I arrived at Lamongan station at 9 am then my father picked me up. After taking rest for a while then I went to mosque. I saw the remaining process of qurban. I helped as I could. Those were several pictures I could take :

Not only doing qurban, there was unique cultures happening here. After all cows and sheeps had been slaughtered (those were 5 cows and 19 sheeps), we took a lunch from meat of qurban. The menu of that day was “tahu campur”. I thought it was delicious.

We got lot of meats in home, not only from the mosque we usually pray in but also from neighbor mosque. The qurban process happened in the next day, in my uncle’s boarding school. If not wrong those are nine sheeps were slaughtered. I took a picture below :

At the day of qurban, we made satay in the back of home. We did it together with my sisters and brother in law.

I think my holiday was too short, but it was very worthy. The existing thing was I could meet my nephew that now he is 2.5 months. See you Ilham, grow up quickly 🙂


At usual, every saturday morning my schedule is jogging at Saparua park. Especially this day I run for 5ks with pace 5.55 with spending around half of hour. But this month my frequency is less than last month with just three times. There is 13 days left to update.
