Last afternoon I met my teammate in research. One again he said to me that I am not good at writing a paper. I received his recognition, I don’t hate him. He gave me a lot of knowledge.

This is just beginning of my success in writing a good paper. I must learn harder than before. I have been spending my time in research for more than two years. So, if I give up I don’t know when I will take doctoral program. I want to pursue this degree in my young age like now.

Basically, I am good at managerial. The reason why I must to take PhD degree is to make me understand how to conduct a good research that I can use it in my career after that.

I dream to be a professional with specific expertise in the future. The entry point is by being a PhD graduate.

I still have two years to prepare. Never give up !


Healthy Life

I think today my life was nearly perfect. I woke up erlier then took jogging 5k and played badminton for two hours. I also slept at afternoon then had coffee time after. This is truely “me time” that I miss since a long time ago. I hope I can repeat it next week.

Alhamdulillah, now I have a smart watch whose music app inside. I tested using wireless headset yesterday morning.


I have just met a beautiful girl, maybe she is co-assistant in RSGM faculty of densitry Unpad. I met her when going to my office. She smiled at me that make me ‘baper” heuheu.

Good morning everybody …


Remember My Senior

I accidentally checked my senior’s facebook timeline several minutes ago. He passed away in 2010 on the date of my birthday. He was so friendly. I was home-mate only one year in the first year of my study in ITB. He introduced to me about Kamen Rider by giving many collections of video. He always thought simple about many things even actually they are complicated.

I scrolled many wishes and messages to him. I really believe that he was a good man with a lot of contribution. Maybe how fast he died means that God loves him.

As a living human, I try to be a good man like him even it’s not easy. Life is about how beneficial we are, how we give to people. Have a nice life in there Kak !

August 13rd

You will remember this day. There is only two choise ahead ; optimizing your efforts to achieve what you have already planned or moving to another plans. The decision maker is you.

Archiving dream needs high discipline and obedience to the planning. No choise to step back, you must go ahead.

Writing a Good Paper

Someday I tweeted that in the future writing paper will become easy thing for me. Future is not today. How about now ? Even I have been doing research for two years, writing a good paper is still my weakness. Once upon a time, my research-mate (he is also a lecturer) talked to me straight-out that my writing on paper is bad. He compared me with other his research assistant about how is quality in writing a paper.

I recognized that today writing scientific paper is my problem. Sometimes this condition makes me stressful. Even I learn almost everyday, it doesn’t help significantly. Going back to my experience related to writing, I started to write when I was 3rd year of undergraduate student with journalistic writing style then switched to opinion or essay until master. I had trouble in writing my thesis, luckily I passed. After master graduate, I started writing a paper.

Today is third year of my experience in writing a paper.

I know my journey is hard but I will never give up.

I do believe that someday I will write a good paper.

My big motivation is I love my research. How big my professional jobs I have, I can’t leave my research.

So, enjoy the process. No pain no gain.



Before Turning 30

Less than two years remaining, my age will turn to 30 years old. It means that I am not young again. Some people (in particular Indonesians) when interact with you whose same age with me probably will ask like this “what’s your job?”. The question maybe ordinary one but what it actually means?. Here my explanation.

In age 30, you should have got married then have happy life with your wife and children. You have a permanent job with good salary and also have house and car (even by credit). If your career is related to academics, make sure that you are a permanent lecturer. If you are government officials, you have already became part of civil servant.

How if you are not like that ? You are failed.

I do not believe with that mainstream actually. For me, turning 30 years old means that you have already mature. You know what will you do in life, you know “who am I ?”.  It’s first step to proclaim your own history. It’s symbol that you have an achievement.
