Do you really love?

Sometimes I wonder:

  1. People married but fight
  2. People married, but when eating together one of them, just cannet get off the phone
  3. Bahasa Indo aje ye
  4. Orang menikah, jalan di kota, kenapa gak ada mesra-mesra(h?) nya
  5. Wait…
  6. Gue coba memosisikan diri kalau semisal sama dengan orang yang bener-bener gue suka
  7. Di restoran makan bareng, gilak hape bisa kulempar, well ga akan gue buka sama sekali. The moment.
  8. Ngunjungin kota, berwisata. Gue bakal nyerocos. Have fun. Talk about anything, the people, the building, some food.
  9. But well, love is not logical anyway
  10. It’s not a factor to determine whether relationship will last or not
  11. Friendship probably is
  12. But still, in such a position, I won’t waste my time to play with my phone, or silent as hell strolling cities, visiting museums, or stuffs.
  13. I think I know what kind of partner I’d like to be with.
  14. Of course, the introverted me want an extroverted friend for life!
  15. Well, I used to be extroverted tho, haha!
  16. Have fun!

Different trust algorithm


Fact is that, different person have different trust-marking algorithm. Ada yang begitu ketemu orang, dia kasih 100% trust if it worth it, terus berangsur-angsur self-adjusting. Ada juga yang pertama-tama, kasih trust score misal 10%, dan berangsur-angsur naik dari sana if deemed. Nope, trust is earned not given. Jadi kalau ada orang yang kasih 100% trust diawal, and you failed to meet the expectation of that trust score… then that’ll be bad enough. Tapi yaps… everyone has a different trust-marking algorithm.

Still remembering Surabaya

  1. Habis dari Surabaya, ada acara Software Development Day
  2. Bulan ini juga habis dari Medan
  3. Seru banget sejujurnya
  4. Ketemu banyak orang, bercanda, ketawa, belajar
  5. Orang aneh (saya), orang baru, orang penuh tanya, macam-macam orang, sampai teman lama dulu di Start Surabaya (mulai dari Facilitator-nya hingga ke teman-teman sejawat).
  6. Asik
  7. Seru
  8. Gak bakalan dilupakan
  9. Jujur masih keinget Surabaya
  10. Keinget Medan
  11. Kenangan bersama (lol)
  12. Hopefully I can actively participate in the Indonesian startup scene more
  13. Horas! Ayo rek!

Cherish the moment: united in diversity


Each and every team in Midtrans is unique. They each have their own charms, norms, and traditions. Almost nothing in common, just under the flag of the same company. You got to explore the its many faces of diversity. And I begin to understand that each of us is just as unique, and someone to miss when we no longer in the same team. So cherish the moments that you have. Just cherish it.

The not-afraid oath

It’s quite an interesting oath, in German:

Wir wollen sein ein einzig Volk von Brüdern,
in keiner Not uns trennen und Gefahr.
Wir wollen frei sein, wie die Väter waren,
eher den Tod, als in der Knechtschaft leben.
Wir wollen trauen auf den höchsten Gott
und uns nicht fürchten vor der Macht der Menschen.

In English:

We want to be a single People of brethren,
Never to part in danger nor distress.
We want to be free, as our fathers were,
And rather die than live in slavery.
We want to trust in the one highest God
And never be afraid of human power.

Good right?
