4th Congress of Indonesian DIASPORA

Howdy people.

I’m not sure but we’re at the end of Ramadhan. So.. ya, it means, bentar lagi lebaran! LOL
and it’s not just that. Right now, i want to write about an event called Diaspora.

Idk if you guys know about a convention called DIASPORA but since ex US President, Mr. Barack Obama will be giving a key note speech at the opening of that convention, this event is really booming right now.

Diaspora itself comes from the ancient Greek “διαρορ?” Which means spreading or sowing. Initially the term Diaspora was used by the Greeks to refer to the citizens of a royal city who migrated to the colonies with the intent of colonization to assimilate the territory into the kingdom.

In the context of human movement, the Diaspora refers to people living in other countries because of various factors, such as war or seeking a better life. In the development of globalization, the Diaspora becomes a new economic power for a nation. If they used to be called nomads, then the term began to shift with the term Diaspora.

For the first time since 2012, the Congress of Indonesian Diaspora is available for the public.

The Convention of Indonesian Diaspora, held on the 1st of July, is a celebration of all things related to the Indonesian Diaspora Community. From 15 parallel and plenary sessions filled with incredible Diaspora Panelists like Maudy Ayunda, Minister Sri Mulyani, Mayor Ridwan Kamil, Real Estate Mogul Iwan Sunito, Actress Tania Gunadi, Fighter for the Rights of Migrant Workers Erwiana Sulistyaningsih, and so much more who talk about issues that matter.

To a job and education fair and finally a Diaspora Concert filled with talented Indonesian Diaspora musicians such as Anggun, Joey Alexander, and Agnes Monica.

Unfortunately, the ticket to this event is already sold out. Even the sales should be end on July 1st, 2017.

For those who already has the ticket, i’ll be seeing you on the spot. 😀

And for those who miss this event, let’s pray that Diaspora Indonesia will be open for public again next year. 🙂

See ya!


Doppelgänger

I’m not planning on writing any story tonight. I just can’t sleep. But story will be good anyway. But first, where should I start?

Well… it’s happen not so long ago when I just driving random around my old apartment building. (Now i live with two of my house-mate, remember?). I remember I used to play on a so-called skate park near that apartment. I was parked on the parking lot next to that skate park when I saw someone that look just like me. I was aware of the coincidence because you know, my face is pretty common. (Idk why I use that word, but it pretty much literally common).

He is looking on my car. (since I use dark film on my window glass), I know he can’t see me. But then he is walking towards me. Getting closer to the car.

I’m starting my car engine. You know, just in case something happen. LOL

I know I am afraid, because shiver come down on all over my body. He is walking faster, almost running towards me. I put the gear on position. I’m ready to hitting my gas when he suddenly stopped just an inch before my car. Knocked on my window.

I’m trying my best to look calm when I open my window. And he suddenly laughing.

His laugh make me feel more uncomfortable. So I said sorry to him and close the window. I hit the gas and moving my car away from that park. 

I really fvcked up back then. 

Idk if it’s because I meet my doppelganger or because I still can hear his laughing whenever I tried to close my eyes. 


Pink Whale Challenge : Daily Task 7 (FINAL TASK)

I’m sorry I forget i still had the 7th task. LOL

Here is the 7th task from Pink Whale Challenge by  higgypop.com

Task number 7: Spend 20 minutes teaching yourself how to juggle, use the internet for help if needed.

And don’t forget it also said <You don’t need to send proof or keep this as a secret>, but i’m so sorry, i’m skipping this one because i really can’t juggle. LOL. I tried but when i look at the video i’ve made, it looks awful.

I want to say that I’m pretty much enjoying all the tasks.
I really hope you too can enjoy this and having fun. 🙂

Let’s fight depression together!


Pink Whale Challenge : Daily Task 5 & 6

Yesterday I’ve had enough with my blog so, i decided to update task no. 5 today along with task no. 6
The reason is also because the task no. 5 deals with contacting an old friend who is rarely contacted for a chat (as seen as the screen capture below).

 

Task number 5: Call a friend that you don’t usually call for a chat.

And don’t forget it also said <You don’t need to send proof or keep this as a secret>, but I already talk to a friend yesterday, so I just need to report it here. LOL. Nothing too private, so i can still share to you.

He is an old friend btw. He is now live in Belgium. He was moved there like 9-10 years ago. And I rarely get in touch with him except when there are certain events that unintentionally bring us together.
We chatted for about half an hour. And then he said he was going to go to work, so ya, it was finished there.
I’m not intended to ask him about anything personal but he told me about marrying someone perfect for him, having a child, etc.
He said they even want to adopt one more child.
It’s great to know that he’s having a good life.

Now i know it’s fun to do this sometimes. Maybe I’ll do it later again.

And here is the 6th task of Pink Whale Challenge.

Task number 6: Make a friend laugh. Don’t give up until you succeed.

I don’t know if the laugh of my friend that i’ve called yesterday is count, but… I think i’m succeed. LOL

And that’s it for today.
I’ll update the last task tomorrow. 🙂

Don’t forget, if you want to join, have some fun and of course to spread happiness, then you can join on higgypop.com 😀
