I just read an article from CNN about world's best cycling cities which posted on 8 October 2014. It is interesting that when I capture the title, the first city came to my mind was Amsterdam but noooo I was wrong, no Amsterdam in this list, well The Netherlands have Utrecht on this list, and they give explanation why those cities in the list became world's best cycling cities, you should read by yourself. I wish I can do cycling in all the cities have mention on the list :) I hope as well my country, Indonesia or specifically my hometown can encourage people to do cycling for health and better environment. #saveourplanet

Hereby the list of the best cities for cycling base on CNN report:

  2. Copenhagen, Denmark
  3. Montreal, Canada

Wanita Terbaik

Jakarta, 1997
Dia baru saja tamat SMU dan melanjutkan kuliah kedokteran tahun pertama, setahun kemudian tiba berita itu....

What? Kanker rahim?

Jantung seakan berhenti berdetak sewaktu dia divonis kanker rahim. Wanita dan kanker rahim, sesuatu yang menakutkan! Tak ada pilihan lain saat itu, operasi dan kemoterapi, dia harus cuti kuliah. Perubahan - perubahan itu mulai nampak, rambut lurus sepinggang tinggal cepak pendek, kulit kuning langsat bersih menjadi pucat gelap, wajah cerah berbinar tampak lusuh capai menahan sakit tapi dia tidak menyerah, dukungan keluarga membuatnya kuat dan tentu saja Tuhan yang dia percaya selalu memberinya pengharapan. Selesai kemoterapi dia kembali melanjutkan kuliah dan harus tetap melakukan kontrol kesehatan.

Jakarta, 2002
Kanker itu kembali, sudah terlanjur menyebar, kalau sebelumnya rahim sebelah kiri, kali ini rahim sebelah kanan. Dia seakan tak sanggup lagi, ingin menyerah tapi dukungan keluarga membuatnya kuat. Operasi dan kemoterapi lagi, rahim itu diangkat. Pendidikan koas/ko-as/ko-asisten atau dokter muda harus tertunda. Dia sudah seperti hampir mati, tubuhnya tinggal kulit dan tulang belulang. Tapi dia bertahan hidup!

Jakarta, 2005
Dia berhasil menyelesaikan kuliah kedokterannya dan resmi menjadi dokter umum, kemudian kembali ke kampung halamannya, Sumba, mengabdi bagi masyarakat setempat. Setiap kali ke Jakarta, dia harus melakukan kontrol kesehatan. 

Kini dia dinyatakan bersih dari kanker, what an amazing and wonderful life! 

Sekarang dia menjadi tulang punggung keluarga, selalu menjadi penolong dan penghibur di saat hidup seakan tak adil, teladan bagi adik-adik dan kebanggaan keluarga. Keinginannya melanjutkan pendidikan ke jenjang spesialis masih ada, hanya menunggu waktu, semoga pemerintah daerah tempatnya mengabdi membuka mata dan hati bahwa mereka perlu dokter spesialis putra-putri daerah yang bisa mengabdi bagi daerah tersebut.

Terima kasih Tuhan untuk wanita terbaik yang Engkau berikan, kiranya terangnya bersinar terus, menjadi berkat bagi sesamanya.

Wanita itu adalah dr. J S L Manna, wanita itu adalah kakak saya, saya bangga menjadi adiknya, dialah wanita citra cantik Indonesia.

My Comment On Twitter Used By Media

I was looking for my Facebook link on the internet and after googling it, I found some article that wrote my comment on twitter about yahoo mail problem in 2013 on their website. So I think it is good to post here as well to remind me that what we are doing or posting in the internet can go viral and easily access by readers around the world. Be wise and make a good impact via internet.

Hereby the article from Republika (last accessed 30 April 2015) :

Yahoo Minta Maaf Layanan Email Bermasalah
Thursday, 12 December 2013, 15:43 WIB

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA --  Sejumlah pengguna layanan Yahoo! Mail di Indonesia mengeluh kesulitan mengakses akun surel (email) mereka Senin (16/12). Sebagian besar keluhan itu disampaikan lewat jejaring sosial Twitter. 

"Yahoo Mail kok susah dibuka sih?" tulis Anggita Prasanti melalui akun ‏@onyeoye, Senin (16/12). 

Hal senada juga disampaikan Avada Kedavra dengan akun ‏@730ncunk menulis, "Yahoo mail dari kemaren error mulu... -_-."

"I need my email back, it is really important, please fix it cc @yahoomail @Yahoo," tulis pengguna lain, Erna Megawati Manna melalui akun ‏@mega_ern. 

Layanan Yahoo! Mail dilaporkan ngadat pertama kali pada Senin (9/12) malam pekan kemarin oleh sejumlah penggunanya di seluruh dunia. Masalah itu terjadi selama hampir seminggu penuh. 

CEO Yahoo, Marissa Mayer pada Jumat (13/12) meminta maaf secara resmi ke sejumlah pengguna atas ngadatnya layanan email mereka. Ia menjelaskan gangguan terjadi karena kerusakan pada perangkat keras di pusat data mereka. 

Mayer, yang menyatakan permintaan maaf melalui blog post di Tumblr, mengatakan gangguan itu dialami satu persen dari jumlah total penggunanya.
Ia juga mengklaim hingga Jumat kemarin "hampir semua" akun pengguna yang mengalami masalah telah diperbaiki. 

Belum dapat dikonfirmasi apakah gangguan yang dikeluhkan beberapa pengguna Yahoo Mail di Indonesia hari ini juga diakibatkan hal yang sama.

Kamis, 19 Desember 2013 - 20:17 WIB by: Datuk Bertuah

Pekanbaru.co — Mungkin termasuk Anda salah satunya yang mengeluhkan lambatnya loading yahoo mail beberapa waktu terakhir. Sejumlah pengguna layanan Yahoo! Mail di Indonesia mengeluh kesulitan mengakses akun surel (email) mereka Senin (16/12). Sebagian besar keluhan itu disampaikan lewat jejaring sosial Twitter.

“Yahoo Mail kok susah dibuka sih?” tulis Anggita Prasanti melalui akun ‏@onyeoye, Senin (16/12). Hal senada juga disampaikan Avada Kedavra dengan akun @760ncunk menulis, “Yahoo mail dari kemaren error mulu… -_-.”

“I need my email back, it is really important, please fix it cc @yahoomail @Yahoo,” tulis pengguna lain, Erna Megawati Manna melalui akun ‏@mega_ern.

Seperti diketahui Layanan Yahoo! Mail dilaporkan ngadat pertama kali pada Senin (9/12) malam pekan kemarin oleh sejumlah penggunanya di seluruh dunia. Masalah itu terjadi selama hampir seminggu penuh.

Sementara itu, CEO Yahoo, Marissa Mayer pada Jumat (13/12) meminta maaf secara resmi ke sejumlah pengguna atas ngadatnya layanan email mereka. Ia menjelaskan gangguan terjadi karena kerusakan pada perangkat keras di pusat data mereka.

Mayer, yang menyatakan permintaan maaf melalui blog post di Tumblr, mengatakan gangguan itu dialami satu persen dari jumlah total penggunanya.

Ia juga mengklaim hingga Jumat kemarin “hampir semua” akun pengguna yang mengalami masalah telah diperbaiki. Belum dapat dikonfirmasi apakah gangguan yang dikeluhkan beberapa pengguna Yahoo Mail di Indonesia hari ini juga diakibatkan hal yang sama

Permohonan maaf ini dilontarkan setelah membanjirnya keluhan dari sejumlah pengguna email Yahoo terutama di media sosial terkait gangguan layanan yang berlangsung hingga dua hari tersebut.

“Kami mengetahui kalau sejumlah pengguna kami tidak bisa mengakses Yahoo Mail. Kami berusaha untuk mengembalikan akses… Mohon Maaf,” kata Yahoo melalui Twitter resminya, Rabu (11/12) waktu setempat.

Jeff Bonforte, Vice President of Communications Products Yahoo, melalui blog resmi perusahaan mengatakan masalah terjadi akibat adanya gangguan di salah satu pusat data email Yahoo. Ia tidak menjelaskan lebih rinci, apa penyebabnya dan bagaimana masalah itu terjadi.

“Masalah itu ternyata lebih sulit diperbaiki daripada yang kami perkirakan sebelumnya,” kata Bonforte. “Kami sudah mengerahkan lusinan staff untuk terus bekerja dan memperbaikinya.” tambah Bonforte.

Yahoo dalam pernyataan terbarunya hari ini mengatakan layanan email sudah kembali pulih untuk sebagian pengguna yang menggunakan browser, iOS, Android, atau Windows 8.

Hanya saja pengguna yang mengalami masalah mungkin tidak bisa mengakses email yang dikirim pada rentang 9 Desember-25 Desember 2013. Yahoo mengatakan tengah memperbaiki masalah tersebut.***

I Lived!


Hope when you take that jump, you don't fear the fall
Hope when the water rises, you built a wall
Hope when the crowd screams out, they're screaming your name
Hope if everybody runs, you choose to stay

Hope that you fall in love, and it hurts so bad
The only way you can know is give it all you have
And I hope that you don't suffer but take the pain
Hope when the moment comes, you'll say...

I, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
With every broken bone, I swear I lived

Hope that you spend your days, but they all add up
And when that sun goes down, hope you raise your cup
Oh, I wish that I could witness all your joy and all your pain
But until my moment comes, I'll say...

I, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
With every broken bone, I swear I lived

Oh [4x]

With every broken bone, I swear I lived.
With every broken bone, I swear I...

I, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
With every broken bone, I swear I lived.

Oh [4x]

I swear I lived. Ohhh [2x]

L.O.V.E


Pictures was taken on 5 February 2015 in Zϋrich, Switzerland during #YES2015 excursion to Schiffbau, Technopark

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 
10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Why Germans Work Fewer Hours But Produce More: A Study In Culture

This is one of the reason why I love Germany ;) Ich liebe Deutschland!
Copied from : http://knote.com/2014/11/10/why-germans-work-fewer-hours-but-produce-more-a-study-in-culture/


When many Americans think of Germany, images of WWII soldiers and Hitler often come to mind. But what many people don’t realize is that Germany is the industrial powerhouse of Europe, and is a leading manufacturer of goods for export to developing Asian nations. We don’t hear about the superiority of German engineering in Volkswagen commercials for nothing!

The economic engine of the EU, Germany single-handedly saved the Eurozone from collapse in 2012. At the same time, German workers enjoy unparalleled worker protections and shorter working hours than most of their global counterparts. How can a country that works an average of 35 hours per week (with an average 24 paid vacation days to boot) maintain such a high level of productivity?

Working Hours Mean Working Hours

In German business culture, when an employee is at work, they should not be doing anything other than their work. Facebook, office gossip with co-workers, trolling Reddit for hours, and pulling up a fake spreadsheet when your boss walks by are socially unacceptable behaviors. Obviously, in the United States these behaviors are frowned up on by management. But in Germany, there is zero tolerance among peers for such frivolous activities.

In the BBC documentary “Make Me A German“,  a young German woman explained her culture shock while on a working exchange to the UK.

“I was in England for an exchange… I was in the office and the people are talking all the time about their private things… ‘What’s the plan for tonight?’, and all the time drinking coffee…”

She was quite surprised by the casual nature of British workers. Upon further discussion, the Germans reveal that Facebook is not allowed in the office whatsoever, and no private email is permitted.


Goal-Oriented, Direct Communication Is Valued

German business culture is one of intense focus and direct communication. While Americans tend to value small talk and maintaining an upbeat atmosphere, Germans rarely beat around the bush. German workers will directly speak to a manager about performance reviews, launch into a business meeting without any ‘icebreakers’, and use commanding language without softening the directives with polite phrases.Whereas an American would say, “It would be great if you could get this to me by 3pm,” a German would say, “I need this by 3pm”.

When a German is at work, they are focused and diligent, which in turn leads to higher productivity in a shorter period of time.


Germans Have a Life Outside Work

Germans work hard and play hard. Since the working day is focused on delivering efficient productivity, the off hours are truly off hours. Because of the focused atmosphere and formal environment of German businesses, employees don’t necessarily hang out together after work. Germans generally value a separation between private life and working life.

The German government is currently considering a ban on work-related emails after 6pm, to counter the accessibility that smartphones and constant connectivity give employers to their employees. Can you imagine President Obama enacting such a policy in the United States?

To occupy their plentiful Freizeit, most Germans are involved in Verein (clubs); regularly meeting others with shared interests in their community. Common interests in Germany include Sportvereine (sports clubs), Gesangvereine (choirs or singing clubs), Musikvereine (music clubs), Wandervereine (hiking clubs), Tierzuchtvereine (animal breeding clubs – generally rabbits/pigeons) and collectors’ clubs of all stripes. Even the smallest village in Germany will have several active Vereinen to accommodate residents’ interests. Rather than settling in for a night of TV after work, most Germans socialize with others in their community and cultivate themselves as people.

Germans also enjoy a high number of paid vacation days, with many salaried employees receiving 25-30 paid days (the law requires 20). Extended holidays mean families can enjoy up to a month together, renting an apartment by the seaside or taking a long trip to a new, exciting city.


Business Respects Parenthood

Germany’s system of Elternzeit (“parent time” or parental leave) is the stuff of fantasy for most working Americans. The United States does not currently have laws requiring maternity leave, while Germany has some of the most extensive parental protection policies in the developed world. The downside of these maternity leave benefits is that employers may avoid hiring women (with the fear that they will take advantage of the extensive benefits), and German boardrooms are consistently male-dominated at a higher rate than other developed nations, although the government is working to eradicate this trend. The financial benefits of staying home (from both Elternzeit and Elterngeld or parents’ money programs) are often too good to pass up for German mothers, and can lead to stagnant or non-existent careers.

Since “at will” employment does not exist in Germany, all employees have contracts with their employer. Parents who have been gainfully employed for the previous 12 months are eligible for Elternzeit benefits, which include up to three years of unpaid leave with a “sleeping” contract. The employee is eligible to work part-time up to 30 hours while on leave, and must be offered full-time employment at the conclusion of the parental leave. Parents may also choose to postpone up to one year of their leave until the child’s 8th birthday. Either parent is eligible for parental leave, and many couples make the choice based on financial considerations.

In addition to the preservation of the employee’s contract, the state will pay up 67% of the employee’s salary (with a cap of 1800 Euros per month) for 14 months. Parents may split the 14 months however they choose. These benefits apply equally to same-sex couples.

Have you picked your jaw up off the floor yet?


Put Some German In Your Office

The German work culture is very different from the average American office, but there are certainly lessons to be learned from our German counterparts. The diligent focus Germans bring to their working life is to be admired. Separating work from play can help us lead a more balanced life; putting the phone down after hours gives us a mental break from stressing about work, and we can return to the office refreshed in the morning. When it’s time to get something done, closing Facebook and turning off push notifications helps keep our minds quiet and the flow steady. Direct conversation can lead to increased efficiency, and more clarity of communication among team members.

Americans often equate longer hours with increased production and superior work ethic, but examining the German model makes one wonder: When it comes to time at work, maybe less really is more!
