Someday you will meet someone that you feel awkward. Yes, because you have bad experience with him/her our you are ashamed when say “hello” to him/her and another reasons. Beside two reasons mentioned, because of we forget him/her name, we don’t greet when we met. My senior who works in Tracer Study suggests me that we must be kind to every one we ever known by greeting him/her when we meet on the street or another public places. This kind of “silaturahim” as recommended by religion. When you say greeting and he/she give you “peanut”, just keep slowly. You do this not because you want to to respected, but to spread peacefulness to people around the world. When you say greeting, you must have been smiling and it is kind of kindness, isn’t it ?
This time I am waiting people (mostly SBM academician) to discuss follow up of research in Kresna Building, part of SBM ITB. The research is titled “Engagement Factors of Lecturers in Higher Education Institution”. I conduct about the research because of its topic related to my concern : entrepreneurship and innovation in the spirit of improvement. In here, I am just a researcher. For the initial study, I posted in international conference, ICHCKM 2017 and was accepted. Now, it is the time to complete the research for the Q3 journal. Hopefully, I always keep in rock and roll :p
For me toilet is one of best place to reinvent ideas. I ofter read my book there or also try to deliver speech. I hate wasting time by doing something that have no benefit for my self. Somedays I got a clue for my project there. I forgot exactly about what the name of project. Reading book or paper in toilet makes me more concentrated so my reading becomes relatively faster than usual. Someday when I have a home, I want to make my toilet comfortable for reading like managing it’s air circulation and choosing seat-kloset (kloset duduk) of course.
I think that’s all, I have just finished my beol :p
I have just done weekly worship : jumatan. I did it in masjid Salman ITB. The khotib was Prof. Hermawan, board member of Salman and also professor of ITB. He delivered a meaningful message in his speech. I point one : the ultimate freedom is not we do everything we will but if we are close to God, Allah SWT. Religion looks like a boundary because there many things that regulate our life but it bring us to the ultimate freedom : happiness in life. When we do believe in God, there is no reason to fear with some body, to do good things to achieve better society like to maximize potential or intellectual to do somethings for human rights. The most valuable people in the eye of God is when they are keeping their idealisms as a Moslem by doing somethings have impact for humanity.
I have been drinking Jamaica coffee this morning. It was brought by Kang Jujun, an employee in Information Centre ITB. It smells like red sugar (gula merah) combined with black original coffee. I do not know it is kind of robusta or arabica, the importance is it tastes good. I drink it without sugar. I capture that spectacular coffee here. Have a good day everyone !
Most people do not want to wait because of wasting time, costly, and others. As you know, queueing has also positive thing to you. It makes you more patient facing something. This time I am waiting for free-break fasting in masjid Istiqomah in Bandung. A lot people spend several minutes to get their service turn. I think nearly 100 people here. Even the side dish is not quite special but it is free. It make it very special. My turn is coming, see you :p
