2010 has passed. Sometimes, I don’t want to look back to 2010. Many things happened.

But another new year has come to be explored, with a fresh spirit (hopefully). Happy new year 2011!

Italian’s Profanity

leave a comment »

A conversation in a class about multicultural environment.

Middle East guy: “In middle east, don’t be surprised if old people is staring at you!”

Teacher: “Ok! So in Italy, don’t be surprised if all people is swearing at you!”

Misheard, can be hillarious..

Ska vi ta en fika?

with 2 comments

Aku meninggalkan Indonesia menuju Swedia pada tanggal 17 Agustus kemarin, di hari peringatan kemerdekaannya. Tidak ada rasa gempita hari kemerdekaan yang kurasa hari itu, datar-datar saja. Sedikit sendu malah. “Selamat tinggal Indonesia, aku harus meninggalkanmu lagi, untuk beberapa lama”.

Pesawatku berangkat dari Bandara Soekarno-Hatta Jakarta pada pukul 19.00. Rutenya adalah Jakarta (Indonesia) – Bangkok (Thailand) – Stockholm (Swedia). Total waktu tempuh sampai ke Stockholm 17  jam. Salah satu perjalanan terlama dan terpanjang yang pernah kujalani.

Ada beberapa keberuntungan/nasib baik yang terjadi sepanjang perjalanan dari Jakarta sampai Stockholm kemarin. Diawali di Jakarta. Saat check-in, barang bagasiku ditimbang. Total beratnya sekitar 35 kilogram. Lebih 5 kilogram dari jatah free checked luggage yang hanya 30 kilogram. Padahal yang 30 kilogram itu sudah termasuk “hadiah” tambahan jatah bagasi 10 kilogram dari pihak airlines yang mengabulkan permohonan tambahan jatah bagasiku dengan alasan sebagai mahasiswa. Tadinya jatah bagasi hanya 20 kilogram saja.

European Spirit

Setiap mahasiswa internasional baru di KTH mendapatkan sebuah “Welcome Package” dari student union. Isinya cukup bagus dan berguna bagi mahasiswa baru. Misalnya, ada peta kampus KTH, peta kota Stockholm, peta jalur transportasi, SIM card untuk telepon di Swedia, dan sebagainya.

Tapi ada satu “pemberian” yang paling menarik:

Recollecting memories (and it is still the same me)

with one comment

Kemarin sepulang dari Bandung, saya sedikit browsing-browsing gak jelas menggunakan modem Aha dari Esia yang baru dibeli adek saya di Bandung. Koneksinya cepat (dibandingkan Telkomsel Flash), mungkin karena masih tahap promosi (seperti kebiasaan penyedia jasa internet di Indonesia).

さらば日本!(Farewell Japan!)

Fuchu farewell party

Meeting again some people I haven’t met for sometime in the farewell party, forced by a grandpa to have an after-party until 2 in the morning, sleepless morning busy packing up stuffs and cleaning up the room, a hot sweaty day; it all filled up my last 24 hours in Japan. After 3 years and 9 months living and working in this land of samurai, I finally left Japan.

A Thought About Time on A Multitasking Incompatible Brain

with one comment

The same hour, 24 hours ago, I was walking down the crowded Jalan Dewi Sartika, Cililitan, Jakarta. Now, here I am already, sitting in front of desk inside my room in Tokyo. Time really flies sometimes. It feels like Thursday night was just a moment ago, whenI was still busy at office. I was assigned to assist  software-hardware integration test of a component unit in my current project. Before leaving office that day, knowing that I won’t be in Tokyo for couple of days ahead, I taught the subcontractor’s engineer who is in charge of the software test about the test environment set up. After that  I submitted e-mail to the engineer who is in charge of the hardware development about abnormal operation on the hardware that I found that day. Then I returned home, quite late. Packed up my stuff for the travel, clean up my room a bit and had a sleep for about 2 hours. I continued my sleep on the flight to Jakarta. Friday night, I arrived at Jakarta, welcomed by traffic jam that took me 2,5 hours from the airport to my destination.
