I have just elected five parts of simultaneous elections. There was a funny story I met during election. A man asked me how to elect. I then explained briefly that we only can elect one choise for every single papers given by the official. More than one will be rejected. I believe he would confused then. Not only him but me too. This is like play bet because not easy for us to choose the best. People will choose someone who is famous, every body knows. But will they really do for people after election? Hard for us to make sure.
This system will follow market logics. When you buy a mobile phone, it’s not absolutely because of its quality but it is drived mainly from ads. Advertisement is every thing is capitalism world like nowadays. So, this election is highly expensive. Millions even billions rupiahs you must spend for the election. Where is the logics ? You say that you will voice the people interest? Rethink !
In the end, happy election day for you, Indonesian !
Tomorrow is weekend that means that it is holiday. Yesterday was Nyepi, so I didn’t go to work at office. In the morning, I had my time for jogging then “coffee time” at Cihapit market. At the evening, I was a guest for my former student in Buahbatu and my classmate-also-senior not far from the previous location. On the way home, I had a dinner with gulay and satay in the back of Golkar building West Java. This place was so favourite after teaching time three years ago.
Last night, actually I should prepare for this morning class what I didn’t. I choosed to youtube and then slept. I woke up before subuh but continued sleeping. I started preparing the class at 6 am so I didn’t finish reading a paper. The class today was about mixed method delivered by Pak Dedy. The materials were so worth for my “engagement” research. After lunch, I started discussing with Pak Dedy about our research. This meeting was to clear the research especially in logic of the research.
This time I am spending my time at Eiger Coffee, my favourite working place. I have my several plans to be done this night. Don’t forget for tomorrow morning. It is time for 5k last training. Enjoy !!
Today I joined a methodology class given by Pak Bill. The lecture today was about ethnography. Unfortunatelly, last night I was wrong to not ask before class to my research-mate. I didn’t read three papers before class, so in the first half of class I just listened, no paper on my table.
The doctoral class like this is nothing without preparing before. It because the class is very interactive, Pak Bill will give you some questions directly. This was my first time joining his class. I hope sometime will be better.
Yes, I am getting ready to take PhD as soon as possible. I hope next year, bismillah.
Several minutes ago was coffee time, special for saturday morning in Los Tjihapit, inside Cihapit market. I ordered black “tubruk” coffee. This place is very cozy with several people discussing about many things. There were culturalist, academicians, SME players, movie enthusiast, and so on gathers here to talk each others.
When I was here, a master student discussed with me about her thesis whose topic fractal batik. I gave some suggestions to her on the entrepreneurship framework that I concern with. Time showed 12 am, I should prepare to go another works. Have a nice weekend !
This day was full of activities. Starting from 10 am, I must met with a lecturer in SBM discussing about second paper then one hour later I presentated one year plan for the place I work for in front my boss. Then at 1 pm I evaluated my teammate (2 groups)’s project management.
Then nearly 3 pm I had a lunch (also breakfast) at Etitu with my job partner. We talked to much any random conversations. Then before going home I checked another magangers job for more than half hour.
Now, I am in a coffee shop like usual to do my weekday works (aka. research). Tomorrow morning I will attend a research method class. So this night I must prepare it. Enjoy the day guys !
I have just finished a draft that I will give to my partner (he is lecturer) to be corrected. Last evening, I looked for a place that is comfortable for working place. Finally I got Kopi Anjis where I worked there till 11.30 pm. Because my work was not finished yet, I went to Bober. This time I am still in here. I tried to finish the draft all night until fajr time. I have limited experience to write a paper using english, so it must be spending more time than an experienced researcher.
I order fried rice to be my breakfast. I planned to go office earlier then take a rest temporary before working. Have a good friday guys !
There are several hours remaining for the deadline of two papers. First paper is about technology commercialization that I work with a MoT Lab lecturer and second one is about lecturers engagement that I work with a CK4BC lecturer. Because I am not used to make vlog, so I update my activity using this blog. Maybe next time I will. For making vlog, I am inspired to Deon, a robot maker in film Chappie. When his humanic-robot would be ready to be installed, he took a video talking about progress.
One paper that I must finish tomorrow hasn’t ready yet. I haven’t read anything yet. I plan to finish the first one untill 10 pm then move to another work. I do the first one in Eiger Coffee Shop at Cihampelas street. Maybe tomorrow morning, I will update again about my work in this blog. Happy work Guys !
