Apologizing

I never thought that I would have problem with my colleague in office because we are close enough each other, I guess. I don’t even know what exactly the problem is. It’s all started two weeks when I get back from lunch and move his cigarette from my desk and placed it near to the window, because I hate cigarette and of course the smoke as well. When he ask to give it back to him, I was being busy with my mobile to reply an important message so I didn't really pay attention to what he ask for and he is getting mad. It was surprise me and the cold war begin…we didn't talk each other, we didn't say greetings, we are pretending that is nothing, we are doing our best to avoid each other, looks like simple complication and miscommunication lead to fall out and I don’t even care for that. It’s happen for a week and somehow I enjoyed it because I don’t have to get annoyance from him. Then I realize that it is not good having an avalanche wall between us so I decided to change it, talk! Swallowing my pride, I talk to him first last week because I believe that succumb to be the winner, first time is very hard and awkward but our friendship is getting better and better now, I guess :) . Jimmy Hasugian, my cell leader while in Bandung, wrote in his FB wall “Apologizing does not always mean that you are wrong and the other person is right. It just means that you value your relationship more than your ego” (June 20, 2011). I agree with that!

Kamus Universal Langenscheidt

Last week my friend, Vian was asked me, on Thursday, I guess. I was going to attending an opening ceremonial of Sumba Traditional Dance competition in Santo Alfonsius High School.

“Did you forget something in your desk yesterday?
I don’t think so.
 Try to remember because if you can’t remember, I’ll hold that thing.
Hah? How come? Give it back to me if it is belong to me.
So you didn’t remember huh? 
Nope.”

Then he put out a mini book, the yellow one, from his pocket which is a pocket dictionary, "Kamus Universal Langenscheidt" Indonesia-Jerman & Jerman-Indonesia. I recognize that book.

“Hey, that is belong to Mr. Michael, maybe he drop it when he was in our room while he was talking to Mr. Okta.
Really?
Yes, I am pretty sure it is belong to him, give it to me, I’ll give it back to him tomorrow.”

The day after tomorrow, I talk to Mr. Michael about that book and obviously he said that the book is for me. AHA! I really glad, Ich erwerben ein Pries von Herr Haase! Danke Schӧn Herr Haase! Gott segnen Sie!

Poor Vs Rich

Since I got an accident in the beginning of May on my way home, I still worry to ride a motorbike again, still remember how I felt down and sluggish to the street, even though my feet is still in pain so every time I go to office, I will waiting my friend to pick me up or I am using public transportation. While waiting my friend or transportation, I will stand in the front of my rent house and I can see what happening in the street. One thing that interesting me is I can see some kids go to school walking on foot, some of them wear sandal and some them without sandal/shoe because they don’t have sandal or shoe, and it incite me. A million thoughts raced in to my mind. In Jakarta and the other big city, we can see kids are going to school with their parents, or taking care by their driver and some of them using public transportation. We can see the kids are wearing an expensive and branded shoe, in school each of them have their own notebook, some of expensive equipments, and have much money to spend during the school break time. Ironic? Well, that is what happens; we can see a gap in their life.
It only an example, if you see the school in some districts, you’ll be shock, I dare it! The building is not being well taken care of. So imagine if a storm comes and destroy the school in a second. Now remember that our government (Indonesian legislative council) wants to build a new expensive fantastic office for them? Or some of them are travel abroad with study reasons? Is that true? Well, are they nuts? Are they losing their mind? I am speechless!!!
