Jakarta Today reveal freedom and fairness. The final round of gubernatorial election is happening. Jokowi – Ahok is competing with the incumbent candidate Fauzi Bowo – Nara. Two candidates is strictly competing to grab Jakarta voter for Jakarta 1. Each candidates has own excellence to vote : Fauzi is technocrat with widespread networking, while Jokowi is previously popular in Solo as a successful major. He is well-known as an out of box leader with many visions.

Whoever the governor will be elected, we’re very supportive as long as they are pro-citizens and willing to build Jakarta is more prosperous.

By Blogging, What’s your Passion?

I am currently writing my blog in the middle of my hectic-working days. Of course, this is a challenge. As a civil worker, I have a regular work hours, start from 7.30 am to 5.00 pm every Monday to Friday. Sometimes, I have an outside job desk that requires high mobility. I am consistently writing social issues, daily activities, and other interesting news maker, around me and surrounding me.

I have a passion, by blogging I can go around the world with many hopes. I previously read famous blogs, and most of them achieved their dream by blogging and blogging. They are advantaged by  sponsorship to join an annual meeting for journalist, blogger and social activist. Sponsorship select a blogger which suit to their mission and vision. And then, they’ll be invited for journey and long-road trip. Of course, this is awesome journey both of domestic or overseas.

Blogging also encourage me to record ‘highlight’ activities which happened in my life. Beyond, it will  being a little note which could inspire everybody whoever read my blog. Shortly, my blog is my idealism. It works by heart after seeing, listening and finally decide to write. I am writing by spontaneity, not pretend. 

And lastly, by blogging I can earn some money. It seems a trivial, of course. But someday I intend to create this passion by blogging.  I experienced by selling some product when I was a student and this will be fun, because I love how to satisfy people by selling a product. And what kind of product will you sell? The answer is idea. By selling ideas, it diverse many unlimited products, such as goods and services :)

This is my passion, what about you?

No, Thank You!

This evening, my boss asks me to be a MC on coffee morning event that will be held tomorrow. But, I firmly refuse this job. Actually, I have ever been a MC on several events in my office. But, I have reason to do it. Firstly, I do not think I can. Speaking is easy, but speaking in front of publics is difficult. Let me show you how difficult it is. If you tell a story with your son or daughter, you speak fluently. They understand what did you want. But, If you speak with others, I am not sure, they would understand what did you want. Speaking in front of publics need patient, universal theme and desire that they want to.
Second, after 5 years I have been here, there is no person wants to replace this job. Of course, it makes me boring. My boss should proggressively offer to all people here to accustomed being a MC and then next generation will be found.
If you could not to do, it is prefer say “No Thank” and I am saying "Sorry" it seems to be the hardest things for speaking in front of publics. This is my choice :)

The Power of Giving

Yesterday, I read and did blog walking to a well-known blog : The owner, Muhammad Assad,  is one of Indonesian Famous Young People who was reached many achievements. Notes from Qatar (Published in 2 Volumes) is one of his famous books, besides he was being a free journalist, traveler and scholar-master student. 

One of topic he was discussed is about the power of giving (infaaq, sadaqah and kinda). I actually ever read and discussed about this topic, but maybe it was not touched and I obviously ignore it. I feel, every people has many miracle that represents their kindness they was done. If every people should have a kindness (whatever the name) in their life, they would receive and pick up the kindness too. A kindness they was done is really do for their selves. Some people believe to this, but some people do not.

As a Moslem, I trust to Al Qur’an, as The Scriptures, Guidelines and Bringing Wisdom and Philosophy. Al Qur’an guide whoever you are giving infaq, sedeqah and kinda, is alike planting a tree, which is in their branch growing seven branches, each branch has a hundred seeds. Allah will guide you, and we must have getting successful if we would like to do it. It will also will keep you, but you should keep your assets.

We easily find chance to do kindness in everywhere. A box place to collect infaq is ready to fill if we just arrived in the doors of minimarket, office, masjid and some place where you want to go. Do not be stingy with this, and let us being a very keen people to give more. Let it works then. Even soon.

She Learns As Her Own Way

My daughter, 22 months, has been growing as an energetic and smart kid. Every she hears music, she would like to dance as the rythm. She also follows the dance as she sees. She learns a sing by listening, memorizing and following the lyrics.

Look at the Sunday morning, after taking a bath, she would like to listen the music and asks me turn on the video. Soon after the song turns on, for example if the singer sings "Balonku Ada Lima", she'll say "", Rupa-rupa warnanya, she'll say "...nya" and so on until the song will be end. She learns as her own way...
