I always fascinated with trees.

How they grow so big throughout the year even when nobody seems to care. How they look strong and steady even without leaves.

I like picturing them -in my mind- as a save shelter which never ask too much, never complain, never shout any negative comments. They just stay and be there for me.

Special day for GDC Indonesia.. as today @YourSevice – Boss Service Day. The day where our beloved Managers -up- treated us like a prince and princess.



Always found a new spirit, new reason to do the best every time I listen to Mr. John’s speech. He’s been in Indonesia for 20 years and still counting ^^.

He said, ‘He’s proud with GDC Indonesia. Proud to see how it grows, and proud to consider it as his legancy.’ Another heart warming thing that he said was (more or less, I don’t remember the exact line), ‘Take everything that we provide here in Nokia. Take the lesson, learn a lot then go explore the world and go great things.’


One of the best day. Our Managers and Head, they really was serving and pampering us with good heart and good food. While handing the plate.. most of them said, ‘Thank you for this good year. Keep up the good work.’

I really had a good time. We really had a good time. We’re happy and full. Hmm.. and eventually ready to do more in our daily basis.

Thank you mam… thank you sir…


Short Term Goal: The Achievement

A few month ago I joined Blogging201. One of the task was to write about my short term goal for my blog. At that time I wrote this:blopost

feel free to visit here for details.

And by the end of November 2015, I accomplished goal No. 2 and …. half of No. 3 (I did read one blog every day but still have difficulty in commenting). Yeay for me 😀

This is really something for me. Especially for my blogging world as I never set any goal before.

So … how about if I set another short term goal. Maybe 250 post by the end of December 2015.

What do you think?

The Power of Kepepet

In Indonesia, we have this term, ‘Kepepet’. It like a condition where you have no time, nor choice to do or think a lot, yet you have to do or create something. A time where you seem stuck with no way out but the truth is you have to get out. Soon. ASAP. And somehow, out of the blue, you find the idea; energy; courage to get out  and even to turned that bad situation into something good. Something fantastic. That my friend, what we call ‘The Power of Kepepet’.

Sometime I find it good to be in such situation since it forces me to do the best I can do, to push me to the very end of my limit or even more.

What about you?? Have you ever been in this situation??
