Tugu Tani Tragedy in My Opinion

This week, most of headline newspaper in Jakarta present about terrible accident was happened on Sunday (22/1) and hits pedestrians, 9 victims died. Afriyani Susanti, the driver now arrested by the police and according to the police, she was under influence of drugs.  According to the news, she did not have a driving license, couldn't show any legal car documents, and was driving at a high speed, 100 kms/hour, right in the center of Jakarta.
This accident makes me very sad and angry, as it is such a stupid, senseless waste of precious human lives! My deepest sympathy and most sincere condolences go to the bereaved families and friends of the deceased.
The big question is : Is it right that Afriyani was driving under influence of drugs? Why did Afriyani did not permitted to interview to clarify all of this? Why did the police refused to release any further information regarding the driver’s identity? There were a lot questions to unveil the real story...

Be Honest, Be Yourself!

A man with hajj attribute in front of his name, came to me for his business. He inquired a tax clearance letter for his boss. I noticed the form. I looked and saw signature in the form. It was likely similar. But, it is not for real. He falsified his boss’ signature.
To be honest is not easy, at least for himself.

How dangerous is using public transportation in Jakarta

A man was struck and killed instantly by an electric train after falling from the train's roof, this morning in Jatinegara, East Jakarta. The man, who was wearing a white and purple striped, long-sleeved shirt and blue jeans and no shoes, was identified as Haryadi, 32, a resident of Pondok Kopi, Duren Sawit, East Jakarta, reported. He allegedly slipped from the roof of the train, which was operating along the Bekasi - Jakarta Kota route. His body was taken to the Cipto Mangunkusumo General Hospital in Central Jakarta for an autopsy. The victim's family said that Haryadi was unemployed having being laid off from his previous job at a plastics factory in Tangerang five months ago.
How dangerous is using public transportation in Jakarta. Trains are not able to accommodate passenger growth. City bus for example Transjakarta and Angkot is fulfilled by robbery or pick-pocket. We should anticipate all of this by going to office early, praying before to do something and always careful in everywhere.
