I called this, a little research with a great conclusion; “You don’t need to love museums, you just need to go there” I’m living in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jakarta) . The perfect delineation of big city with many people, rush and central of entertaiment. That’s why people prefer to spend their holiday or weekend in a big mall or other entertainment places. But actually, Jakarta also has so many incredible museums with the bea...

Indonesia is one of the most populated countries besides that of China, the USA, and India. A big problem challenging the government of Indonesia, notably the Ministry of Education and Culture, is the equality of education. We also must look at the quality and access. Most of the above problems continue to persist in many tribal communities. The challenge occurs because of some geographical and cultural factors. Geographically, thousands of islands consist of remote areas house...

The idea of diversity is like any other idea because it has a good side and a bad side. In each country that has diverse people it could be a source of problems but it might also be a healthy thing. From my last visit to Indonesia, I noticed that this Islamic country is very proud of its diversity and focuses on the culture and traditions as a special thing that they are gifted with. They believe in preventing and keeping their traditions which was obvious when they held the last W...

“Wow, I Love Indonesia!!” I love my country. Indonesia has 34 provinces, 17,508 islands, 300 distinct native ethnic groups (with their own culture, traditional clothes, traditional food, traditional song, dance and 742 different languages and dialects). I love my country so much, I can’t go through the day without thinking about the beautiful paddy fields in West Java, the awesome waves and sunset in Bali, the mysterious forest in Kalimantan, the incredible Toba Lake in North...

Culture is inherent in a person because of one's upbringing as well as the environment. So if we need youth to build a world order to bring all human beings to enjoy the basic human rights of liberty, brotherhood and mutual understanding. Children should have these values not just for tolerance, but healthy respect and imbibing of other traditional values as a part of the school curriculum and upbringing. This will ensure that the future will be strife free and harmonious because m...

Whether or not we are content with this fact, our childhoods shape who we become as adults. The kids with whom we play with and the activities that we do, shape our experiences and the stories that we tell each other as adults. Everything we learn as a child comes from our friends, our teachers and our families. Growing up, I was very close with all of the other kids in my apartment, and we all hung out together immediately after school until it was time to go to bed. I was the o...

Our fathers taught us the culture and how it relates to nature, with ancient pictures, they explained it all with pleasure. In fact it was more than a treasure. The culture featured investment structures such as mental, family, spiritual, health, business, relationships and moral fixtures. But then, it was still immature and they told us that it will soon mature for it is our future. That future, for some of us now, it is torture…no innovations, no SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Real...

As a young man who is passionate about history and culture, I try to explore all Indonesian cultures. Although Indonesia has diverse cultures, I don’t stop my to understanding the details of some of the wonderful cultures. My unforgettable experience on watching Perang Obor or the war of the torch, I was impressed by how dangerous this culture is still allowed to be conducted. This tradition is from the Jepara Municipality, Central Java. It was very harmful because the war used a torch to dry...
