An Escape

Catalogue & Invitation

Catalogue & Invitation

It’s great how a single photos could tell a thousand words, but in this exhibition there are series of photos that could tell Indonesia divided into seven clusters under various themes, as follows: the sites, the moves, the works, the artisans, the schools, the aristocrats and colonial bureaucracy, at last the people and faith. The series of images made by Jean Demmeni , until the Second World War. And His works until the Second World War were presented in many cultural jounral and has illustrated many books on tourism published in the Netherlands.
For me, I’m feeling so lucky living in this digital era, I feel everything is much more easy to get than the older era, especially before Indonesian Independence. I see many warrior in this photo series, how they hold our culture and keep their faith to fight for the independence. But now, I just realized that many many culture has been taken by foreign countries and slowly made us forget about our country, our culture, our self. Do you have the same feeling?

Desporev 2012

Flashback to 2012, this is my very first committee on campus.

Desporev 2012 - 3 felix pangestu blog wordpress

As a new student at the Petra Christian University,  I do not know much about the campus. When there was an opening committee, I try to challenge myself to divide time between studies and committees.

Finally after I was accepted in the equipment division, I tried to perform my duties well. Although I hope that I will go in the documentation division. Therefore, when I finished my desk job, I photographing the events. Here it is 😀

Friendship

Recently I just realized how important keeping a true friendship after seeing many of my true friends who began start a relationship of love. Mother was right, you have to be a friend to have a friend. We can not live without friends. We need to have friends as we need air to breath.

A true friend is someone who sticks by us when we are down and celebrates with us when we are up. It’s someone we trust. It is someone who understands us, knows the real us and appreciates the person we are.

I realize sometimes friendships disintegrate or people grow out of them. Maybe they’re always spending time with their love. But if I’m not spend time together, have fun together and talk (I mean really talk about our life, decisions, whatever is going on), the friendship probably will not last.

So friends, these are I have learned in todays. Make countless of friends and keeping a true friendship for life before decide becoming exclusive to someone. I’m sure it’s worth waiting for, because we are born to be loved and love. 🙂

Good Service is Good Business

Last week, I went to Toyota car repair shop with my dad. It was my first time going to that repair shop.  This is the service I get: on time, treats, and good solution. I know, these are a simple thing but from those simple things can bring great impact to the customer.

The thing that I can notice are,

1. Don’t make promises unless you will keep them. Especially in making an appointment for the first time. We must make a great ‘first impression’ to our customer. So we can grow their trustworthiness in us.

2. Be helpful – even if there’s no immediate profit in it.

First Job in 2013
