September 13th, 2008 – Margarana

I got up early this morning as I had to go to LPBA – my work place, before I went to STIKOM Bali. When I passed STIKOM, I’d seen many new students and trucks that were ready to head for Margarana. It took me anly a few minutes to sign the attendance list at LPBA and then I went back to STIKOM as I really wanted to go to MArgarana. Yupz…Margarana is located in Tabanan, and this was the first time I visited this place. This is a cool place where lies a monument of all heroes n heroins in Bali, especially the one and the most famous I Gusti Ngurah Rai. Before I met the management who would go to Margarana, I checked my email and printed some important documents at the second floor. Then I went to meet Mr. Syam, Ms. Dayu and the management downstairs. We left the campus at around 08.30 am together with all the new students and arrived there one about 45 minutes later.

While the members of the committee were busy with the preparation, I went to the temple to see its beauty. As I entered the temple which was guided by a friend from STIKOM named Wedha, this place looked wonderful. Wedha then told me some things that she knows about this cool place. I walked circling the temple right before the Hindhu students came in to pray. Then I walked to the East Part of the temple where I saw another house surrounded by a pool. There were many fish there. Unluckily, I had nothing to feed them though they seemed to be hungry as I came to see them.

Today was the last day of the orientation for STIKOM new students which had been held since last Thursday, Sept 11th 2008. The number of new students was more than 800. They came here by 14 trucks together with the committees and management. I went with Mr. Didik and crew representing the management. It was nice to see the spirit and motivation of the new students who were happy to join this event. Even though this is Ramadhan and the Moslems are fasting now, but they kept on working very hard to join this event until the last minute. I saw some of them were punished n some others were busy preparing for the Yell-yell as there would be a yell-yell competition in the end. Finally the time came that we had to make the closing ceremony after the yell-yell competition. This was led by Mr Syam continued with the announcement of the competitions’ winners. This all ended a little late than expected. We’re supposed to go back to Denpasar by 4pm, but we just could make it at 5pm finally. We’re tired actually but we’re all happy with this visit. So I’m telling you guys I had a great Saturday.

As I went back to LPBA to sign the attendance list, I met Kadek FO and Anggori who gave me a T-shirt for LPBA new students’ orientation. It’s a very nice T-shirt n I was very glad coz the day before i also got a STIKOM’s T-shirt. It’s a red polo shirt with STIKOM logo. So…lucky!he…he…

It’s been like 7pm I guessed, but I still had some work to do. I had to forward mr. Tony Ellis’ email to my boss and discuss it with Mr. Indri about the English program. This is a good program that will be my primary focus at LPBA for the upcoming semester! So please God help me handle this thing. Then I went back home and had dinner coz I was very hungry. I had felt it since I was writing on this blog.he…he…

How about you guys??

Sept.6th 2008 – VolunteeR…VolunteeR!;-)

This was Saturday, I went to GOR Ngurah Rai with some friends from LPBA. We’re about to join the training of being the General Volunteer for the first Asian Beach Games in Bali next October 18 – 26th 2008. There were about 450 people coming to this big hall. It took me almost an hour  to pass the registration desk. I was luckier than some other friends coz they had to wait until 10am though they had been there since before 8am.

As the traning sessions started, each presenter came up with their material. We learnt a lot of things today; Sports and Its organizations, Balinese Culture, Venues of Asian Beach Games, Ethics, and also General English used by Volunteers. This was like a full day training, and the bad news is we’re late to get our lunch coz the number of participants was more more than expected. I saw how the HRD and the committee worry about this too. But, it’s finally handled then we continued the training sessions.

After going through the whole sessions, we finally had to wait for the administration and picture-taking. Then we went home at around 6pm. Each participant got Rp.50,000 for this training. So before I went to LPBA, I dropped at Pizza Hut on Jl Teuku Umar to get some pizza. After signing the attendance list, I went back to Pizza Hut to get my order. Then I went back home directly as I had to see my girl who’s waiting for the pizza.

Oh yeach, I was surprised when i got the phone call from the ABG Staff to join the training of NOC Assistants on Monday, Sept 8th 2008. I just agreed after telling the caller that I was joining the General Volunteer training as well. So I made a plan to go to GOR again on Monday and I did….(continued).
