Youth around the world must have so many likes and dislikes. Moreover, youth go through a phase when young people have so many ideas and have great power. However, this is also a phase when so many young people confuse themselves in what field they fit the most in. Finally, the bad impacts that come from this condition appear. Young people often do and learn something. They rarely put their best and make it until the finish line. They often feel stressed if a problem arises and the...

As I have written in my previous post, Indonesia is experiencing some natural disasters; big floods, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and occasional storms. These disasters have caused so much loss to a lot of citizens in Indonesia. The victims may directly be affected, but other groups of people also feel the disadvantages of these disasters. It becomes harder to reach several places, the train cannot be used because its rail is covered by water from floods, trading activities are...

Beggars are very common in our lives, especially in Indonesia. I don’t know what it is like in other countries, maybe it will be the same in other developing countries. Let's look at Depok, as one of the cities in West Java as it is actually very close to Jakarta. You can find beggars everywhere in the city I live. They beg in the streets, in front of the shops, and come house-to-house to get money. Beggars come in many forms of people. She or he can be a child, teenager, or...

“...rambutnya sama, kulitnya sama. Sama-sama bisa merasakan sakit.. Saudara kita yang di sana..” “...we got the same hair, the same skin. We all are able to feel the pain. They are our brothers and sisters.” – Yoel F. Kaban. I am a newbie in a volunteering organization called Rumah Baca Panter. I was afraid at first, whether or not this would be right for me, or whether I could commitment myself to it. But, as I make my heart firm, I decided to take this path. The fir...

This morning as I ate my breakfast in front of the television, I watched one of the programs on MetroTv. At first, I thought that this program was just another travel program, but as I watched it longer, I found a unique vocabulary that I have never heard before. It is voluntourism. Voluntourism, I guess you could already guess, comes from the terms volunteering and tourism. How do these things work together? Well, this is how the story goes: The host visited Papua, one of the...

“Do you want to listen to the radio?” “Yeah! Prambors, please! It is 102.2 FM.” Both radio and television are using frequency in order to broadcast their programs. Frequency is free in the air, and what they actually do is borrow the frequency and ask for a canal for them to take place. I will focus on television when I talk about frequency. Frequency is free, and its public, so logically those television stations must serve programs which are safe and appropriate for...

I am writing this post as I sit in a night train, on my way to another province in my country called Jogjakarta. I’m passing a city called Cirebon. So when this post is published, I will probably have arrived at Jogjakarta and perform my task there with my friends. You will read another story of my thoughts, or so you can say, a story from my heart. It is so dark outside. It is about 9:45 p.m and every passenger in this train is busy with his or her own things, and some of th...

2013 is almost over. It is Dec, 30th 2013 when I’m writing this post. We will enter 2014 soon, and maybe most of us think that new year can be identified by the resolution of the year. People will make their own goals and targets, and maybe some of them will just keep the targets that they have not been accomplished yet. For those who are still confused as to what to do in 2014, maybe this flashback of the best and worst moments of 2013, will give you any inspiration to do someth...

Christmas is a time when we celebrate the joyful news about the birth of Jesus. Christmas is identifically the time for people to gather with their beloved persons, like family and friends. We eat cakes, have a chat, drink hot chocolate, and pray together. But let’s take a look at these people: In Afghanistan.. British troops celebrated their Christmas in the middle of their duty, and they had a Christmas lunch which was served at the UK headquarters in Camp Bastion and fou...
