the inspiring professor: I wanna be

Believe it or not, in live we need someone we wanna to be, someone we admire him/her, someone who continuously  inspiring and encouraging us a long life.

As new lecturer, sometime I do need a model.  I mean ideal model, like whom i supposed to be. Unfortunately, since my department is one of the newest departments in my University I do not find it. So, sometime I feel my career in this department is directionless. I know there are other lecturers in this department.However, I do not find one of them is the “real” lecturer. I knew them, just do it as a profession and for making money. I do hope, I was wrong. What I mean “real” lecturer here is the one who fully dedicates his/her life for educating student, nurturing  science and technology, and finally giving something beneficial for public.

Till, one day I met a Professor in my University. He is still young professor. But, I find him as perfect model for what I call “real” lecturer. He inspired me to keep on learning,researching,and writing. Thank a lot for him.

It is small, hot, very dirty and very not comfortable bus. Obviously, there is no Air Conditioner, No proper Ventilation, and Full with passenger. It is also slow motion bus.

Just like other public transport in Indonesia, the bus is not only full with passenger, but in each single time it will full with beggar, illegal on- the-street singer,  and illegal seller  that makes the bus very crowded and very uncomfortable. And Finally, that the worst incident happened.

You know, When the bus manage to proceed, Incidentally, a man, that is mad, crazy, that is 100% fully nude ( you can see clearly his dick) enter the bus making a crowded.

The Humble, Simplicity, loyalty from Mbah Maridjan (In Momoriam)

There is a very popular name behind Merapi Mount Eruption Since 2006. He was Mbah Maridjan, who dedicated all his life for keeping Merapi Mount until the end of his life. Now, he passed a way as a victim of Merapi Mount Eruption 26 Oct 2010. A honorable Death I think. He died in his loyalty keeping his duty. ” Selamat Jalan Mbah Maridjan ! ” God Bless You.

The things reminds me of Mbah Maridjan is his so humble, nice , smiling man. He was absolutely not Arrogant, even after he become an entertainer (i.e advertising model). His simplicity on how he view this Life, and the greatest one is His Loyalty and Religiosity.

May God Always Blesses you Mbah Maridjan!

All People around The World Pray For Indonesia

Now, my motherland is crying again. October 26 2010 noted: some huge disaster happened in Indonesia-my beloved motherland again: Tsunami at Mentawai Islands West Sumatra, Mount Merapi eruption at Yogyakarta-Middle Java, Wasior Flash Flood that killed hundreds of people. Why Indonesia? Why disaster? Is it reminder from God that we mean nothing? Is it reprimand for our arrogance  so far? We should back to God, introspect ourselves! Whatever disaster happen there must be some reasons. Then, please pray for Indonesia.

Indonesia Oh Indonesia. Here, and only here many sad stories, bad news frequently happens. Why Indonesia? Why in this World’s largest Muslim Country? are there somethings wrong happen? Ask to our own heart! Cause in the bottom of our heart may we will find the answer. Personally, it reminds me to remember that it is wrong time to be arrogant, egoist , consumptive. It reminds me that there are so many our country brothers and sisters  are less lucky and we need to care each other.

Stop crying Indonesia ! Keep Fight For Better Life ! Whatever happen, We still love you!
