Even Google Greets Me Today

In a couple of hours January 31st will be end. My day will come to an end.

Somehow I’m smiling all day long and feel excited for everything.

I think, because I feel blessed more than days or years before.

Greetings from friends, who remember me, greeted. Or the late one.

And … voila! Even Google greets me!

Enough with the crap. 🙂 I just feel thankful for everything today.

Well, Happy Birthday ME!

Thank you, WordPress!

Birthday Greeting from Google*Still no birthday greeting from you, H.*

There Were Human In That Airplane! For God Sake!

Suddenly I felt sad, annoyed and disappointed by a comment of a Malaysian woman in a British online media post I read yesterday. What I still can remember is, she said that Malaysia has lost another plane for the third times in a year. Then another Malaysian women commented that she agreed with the first woman and said to pray for Malaysia.

For God sake! You care more for a lost flying machine than the passenger inside it?! You got to be joking! And as important note is that most of the passengers in that sunk Air Asia QZ 8501 were Indonesian. So? We here are in the real mourning. Like there were no Indonesians inside the crashed MH 17 and the lost MH 370. No one wants this happen to anyone anywhere.

I really don’t know what to reply for that kind of public comment that can be read by people. Why nowadays people care much more for things than human? You might think and say, „Hey, it’s just a comment.“, but at the moment, I think everyone should not say something without thinking first.

Personally, I am tired of this kind of tragic moment. I don’t have to be a member of the family of those victims of plane crashed to feel what they feel from losing their beloved one. Just by witnessing a plane crashed down and someone free flew from the sky in the middle of hard rain when I was a child already shivers me to death and I realize that I can never forget it for the rest of my life but to accept it.

It made me shiver, because something try to tell me a warning for that big writing in front of me that day, November 30th 2014 on my way heading hometown from Bandung to Medan.

Either in the end of 2006 or in 2007 I was afraid of flying home from Germany to Indonesia, because there were more than 3 planes down in Indonesia. Then I cancelled my flight, because of this insecure feeling of flying. Even though I missed my family, friends and homeland a lot.

From my flying experience with many national and international planes, none of it the best. That’s include twice flying with Malaysia Airlines, which I won’t fly again with it, since the food and their flight attendance for long haul flight from Medan to Frankfurt via Kuala Lumpur was not recommended.

 I hope that we can think first what to say or comment before knowing what was really happened. As Indonesian, I am thankful for all helps from many neighbor countries to find Air Asia QZ 8501.

My prayer to all MH 17 and MH 370 passengers, also their families. Amin.

So Long, 2014! Welcome, 2015!

Well, I don’t have much to wish for next year.

I just wish, that I will be happy and proud of who I am. Grateful for everything I got already.

And not making the same mistakes as I did before.

A plan for the first day of 2015? To the beach for the first sunrise of 2015 and hopefully not rainy.

Not much, but it makes me smiling already to have this wish in my head. 😉

For additional wishes are to travel to Lombok Island and hike on Rinjani Volcano to fill the volcano list, which I’ve hiked, to Komodo and Rinca Islands, and diving in Raja Ampat.

I wish you all A GREAT NEW YEAR AHEAD!

Selamat Tahun Baru 2015 / Happy New Year 2015 / Frohes Neujahr 2015 / Godt Nytår 2015!

New Level, New Room

Life is incredibly unbelievable.

I wasn’t expected anything. But, here I am. In a small meeting room, which also with working table on the other end of the room. Still my computer with me and only with new working paper and large windows behind me. New room. In new level.

It feels like only a week ago I came back from 5 days and 4 nights round trip in Java and after I came back to the office, I got the news that I was offered to take this position to handle the biggest DMC in Germany and maybe in Europe. Yes, it was a shock and I was almost chocked. Gasping and inhale exhale that I can do about it. Though, it still takes time to accept everything consciously. Yes, I am still in shock.

Working with some German speaking expats in this room make me feel quite … anxious. Looks like I need Duden once again. What a life I have…. Once again talking in German, English and Indonesian language with them all at the same time is quite a thing with my tongue. Lol.

Well, got to through all this with all my heart and soul. Love your job and hopefully, the good things will come into your life as future benefits.

Gotta go and get rest. Maybe? 😉

Still Remember

Still clear in my mind ….

That night when we said goodbye. 

I saw that white skinned man in red t-shirt waved his right hand to me….

It was … strange. I feel like I´ve seen him long before met him that noon.

I knew his face. Somehow.

I´ve seen his face somewhere.

But … I just can´t remember when.

Or where ….

Not there. Not in that place.

Not on this island.

Not in this life.
