A Great Guy

Last weekend I went to Bandung.
I met a great guy.
The most inspiring one.
It seemed that I met a Paulo Coelho-or-Mitch Albom like.
His thoughts were basically similar as my favorite authors do.
It's a life lesson
It's priceless.
I got a lot from my conversation with this remarkable guy.
I was so lucky to have the opportunity to meet him in a very easy way.
I was so grateful to be a chosen person.

Peri Kecil di Sungai Nipah

Actually I had finished this book couple months a go. "Peri Kecil di Sungai Nipah" ("a Small Fairy at Nipah River") written by Dyah Merta. I was really impressed with this book. A good story. Different theme. After feeling tired with all the chiclits that spread all over book stores, I came across this book. I was truly amazed with the title, the cover and the synopsis. So unique. So mysterious.

I emailed the writer, Dyah Merta and gave my compliment to her. In her reply, she said that it took 2 (two) years to finish the novel and took another 2 (two) years to find the publisher. Since the topic of the novel is not so common, perhaps the publisher felt reluctant to deal with such kind of novel. Finally this novel was published by Penerbit Koekoesan, a publisher founded by Donny Gahral Adian (a lecturer at University of Indonesia) and his wife, Rieke Dyah Pitaloka (a public figure).

The story is about Karyo Petir's family, Karyo is the father, Dalloh, his wife and their 2 (two) kids, Gora and Dagu and also Kulung, Karyo's son from his mistress. It took place in a village, you will find beautiful description of the village with its sugar cane plantation and it was all surrounded by mystic atmosphere.

A really good book. It's worth to read. It's different.


"There is no experience like having children.
That's all. There is no substitute for it.
You cannot do it with a friend .
You cannot do it with a lover.
If you want the experience of having complete responsibility for another human being,
and to learn how to love and bond in the deepest way, then you should have children."

Making People Happy

" A President Director's job is not making money, but making people happy. If the employees are happy, it's easy to make money."

(said in an interview session with my President Director, Mr. Makoto Oshima, on Friday, January 11, 2008)


Here comes January, one of my favorite months.

Our 2nd daughter, NAYZEA RENGGALI MEWANGI, a new year baby, celebrating her 1st birthday on January 1, 2008 and me also celebrated mine on January 14, 2008.

So many blessing. So thankful for all.

A package of complete happiness: Najla, Zea & Ayah.

Big thanks to God who bestowed me upon these greatest things in life.
