There are many things to learn

There are many things to learn this week. I should divide many things. Times, life, family, work, and love. Perhaps it makes my daily life not controlled. I cannot sleep tightly, I cannot smile freely. But, I think there are also many people who didn’t get the experiences.

Thank God, You give me everything. That’s all.

Next step. Repairing my mental and physics. For work and learn and learn. (should I be bored?)

Go To Surabaya and Pandaan (2)

On the second day, I left Taman Dayu Residence to go to Sukorejo Plant. This place contains Machine Kretek ciggarete factory. I didn’t have a chance to enter the factory, but in the company profile movie, I got that the machine can produce eighty thousand more ciggarete a day.

We met the management of PT. HM Sampoerna Tbk. Again, it was very interesting because I could learn how Sampoerna succeed, started from the founder, Mr. Sampoerna (Leem Sing Tee) until Philip Morris International (PMI) acquisition. In this opportunity, we had a discussion session. Someone asked them about why Sampoerna family sold the equity to PMI. The answer is clear that the family sold when the price of equity was in the peak position. No intervention at all.

After the interesting discussion with the management, we took photo session with the management. Then, we went to the training centre of Sampoerna. There are many training programs there. This program is a part of Contribution and Corporate Social Responsibility to the surrounding society. There are entrepreneurship program, Cow Livestock and disemenisation of papaya program, clean water program, cultivation of rice planting method with SRI (System of Rice Intensification), etc. My groups, Rungkut 1, got the clean water program topic. Unfortunately, I couldn’t follow the observation because of uncomfortable body at that time.

Then we had dinner at “Ayam Bakar Cianjur”. 🙂 It is funny because we came from West Java and we again ate dinner at West Javanese restaurant. Nope. The food were ready to be eaten in each tables. During the time of our dinner, we talked about East Java governor election, Lapindo, the campus policy, etc. I think the best student is appropriate for them, because they really care about the Indonesia situation.

Then, we went to Surabaya city and arrived Novotel by bus. I always took the front chair of the bus with Fermi.

Ooooh… I slept tightly because Fajar (Undip) have treat me due to my uncomfortable body, by balm-scratching my body. Thanks, Dude!

Go to Surabaya and Pandaan (1)

It is a pleasure that I am chosen by my campus to follow the “Sampoerna Best Student Visit 2008 Program” in Surabaya and Pandaan, East Java. It is such as a study tour program during July 23-27, 2008. This is an annualy program, and 2008 is 4th year. By plane (Merpati) started from Husein Sastranegara Airport, with 14 mixed of ITB, Unpad, and Unpar students, I went to Juanda Airport. Arrived there, we met other students from Gadjah Mada University, Surabaya University, ITS, UNS, etc. Then, by bus, we went to Taman Dayu Residence in Pandaan, Pasuruhan. During the journey, I saw the dike of Lapindo outpouring gas. There was Eko, an ITS students who guided us. He said that the Lapindo outpouring gas now has changed to be a touring object, that is traded from surrounding society. Arrived at Taman Dayu Residence, we are devided into several residence. Pak Tole, a SAR team leader, said that Soeharto, Gus Dur, Megawati, and SBY have ever slept at VIP residence, called Bromo. I think it is such a suite place in Jawa Timur, because the back side of the residence facing the golf park. There is also a mini swimming pool there. I slept in Welirang residence for one night with other nine students. There are many activities today. Flag Market Games. This was very interesting. We are devided into several groups. We have task to buy the materials, produce, and sell the flags. The price of each materials and flags are fluctuative. It is such a mini business game. Our mision is to get the benefit. My groups, called Dji Sam Soe, lose 13.500 out. 🙂 Though, we are the third best group. Not bad. Again, We have been chosen as a best yell group. 🙂 At night, we have a gathering dinner at the park. It is very interesting. Some of the students from each university introduce themselves. Unfortunately, it is not cover all of the students because the time was limited. There were 89 students followed the program. The students come from 18 universities in Indonesia, start from USU to UNHAS. Salam Ganesha have been proudly presented by ITB students, (including me). My room mate are Rozy (Unibraw) and Harbun (UNS). I slept tightly. But I forgot to switch the air conditioner off. Then unfortunately, I’ve got a head ache. I want to thank Farid Baskoro, my best friend, who carried me to the airport early in the morning at 4.30 am. I’ll bring you something from Surabaya, buddy! THank’s so much.
