Loud Adzan Voice at Sanur Bali

During my duty to Sanur - Bali (15-19 November 2011), I had to attend Friday Noon Praying at Masjid al Ihsaan which is located next to Symposium venue. Even though most of Balinese are Hinduism, I could hear adzan voice from this mosque loudly. Alhamdulillah. This would be my beautiful note for me. 

Above is the picture of the mosque figuring the size of the mosque can afford the moslem for praying. I took the picture after the session of Friday Noon Praying.

Join E-Government Training by NICT Center

From 20 until 24 of June 2011, I have joint e-government training held by National Information and Communication Technology Center. This Center is located at Jl. Kertamukti 10 Ciputat, Tangerang Selatan, Indonesia. The participants come from all over Indonesia especially from Ministry of Indonesia.

This training broaden my mind, not only about e-government but I have strong feel the need of Indonesia to create its own IT industry to fulfill domestic demand. This is the first target before achieving e-government era. After fulfilling domestic demand of IT, the second target is creating community habit about paperless working environment. These are the two target that we must achieve before entering e-government era. But this is just my opinion that one might be different.

Resensi Buku Islam #1 in Google

In the early April of 2011, I tried to type keyword 'Buku Islam' in Google search engine, I was amazed by the result which put my blog as number 1 in Google search engine. Thank to Allah.

Actually I don't know exactly how Google works. My curiosity starts to find out the answer. I tried to type the same keyword 'Buku Islam' using Mozilla Firefox to make comparation with Internet Explorer result, and it gives me different result. Different result came up to me when I typed the same keyword tonight (April 9, 2011). It put my blog in number 2 in Google search engine using Internet Explorer.

From Bandung with Limited Access

Today I have a special mission from my office to have a workshop in Bandung. The task is so complicated for me. I have to think a lot about this.

I visit Bandung for three days from April 7, 2011. Sent in a location with limited access. The hotel I spend the time is around Sersan Bajuri Street. It is rather difficult to reach this location since there is no public transportation here. So the only choice is using ojek motocycle or taxi. Hmmm, what an expensive choice.

Okay, that is the way to reach here. The next difficulty is the internet access. The Wifi access in this hotel is limited so if there are a number of person having the access, the next person would have no access. What a pity. So, in order to cover above limitation I turn to use my own connection using SMART. But actually it is also not a good solution, you know SMART, but I have no choice. And alhamdulillah, I can have internet connection even though a low connection. So here is my writing for you.

So silent here ...

A Few Notes for A Few Days in Bali

At the end of this year, on December 28 until 31, 2010, I visited Bali for a duty from my office. I have a note about Bali during my visit and this note has no correlation with my duty.

I spent my nights and my activities at Sanur Paradise Plaza Hotel at Sanur - Bali. Next to this hotel there is a big mosque, Al Ihsaan Mosque. Even it is not a grand mosque but this mosque is big enough to accomodate hundreds of prayers. And the situasion is very comfortable. There is shout of adzaan even using internal speaker, not external speaker.
I think that this big mosque should have a big library to accomodate the need of moslem to broaden their Islamic knowledge. And also to spread Islam in Bali. Through this writing I ask for the people who want to do this. You may sent Islamic books to this mosque. May Allah be with us.

Then, I had to transit in Ngurah Rai Airport before continuing to reach Tambolaka Airport in Sumba Island. From Tambolaka I had to reach Waikabubak using Toyota Avanza, hmm, special thank goes to all of my friends in Waikabubak.

3 Items for 10 Dollars in Singapore

When you have a visit to Singapore there is something unique when you have a shop. A lot of goods sold in a bundle that you can buy many items for one price. An example is when I visit at a shop in Singapore, there are a lot of things sold with a lable "3 for $10"... :) . This would be similar in Indonesia that you can find easily in a mall or traditional market. You can hear a merchant speak loudly "10.000 tiga" meaning that he sells his goods 3 items for just Rp. 10.000.

Another interesting experience that you can find obviously in Singapore is this city is so clean that there is no garbage everywhere. Oh yes, I almost forget, I noticed that there is no police or security officials on every street. This would be different with Jakarta with almost every corner of the city you may find easily a police officers or security guards. Well, I try to understand about this different condition.

Hmm, with all the strong points of Singapore, I still love Indonesia. Indonesia is better that Singapore. Yup, we cannot compare both two countries in the same points. But we can say Singapore has strong points and also Indonesia has strong points. But I choose my own point of views to declare which one is better. I love Indonesia since I can find mosque easily.

Challenging a Danger

Easy and cheap transportation is the most favourite choice for the people in my country. One example is busway. This is the most favourite public transportation for the people living in Jakarta. As you can imagine, the simple and cheap transportation will become the favourite one and as the result, passengers will fulfill every space in the bus.
Another favourite public transportation in my country is Jabotabek train. This kind of train serves from south of Jakarta (Bogor) until Jakarta-Kota, and also serves from Bekasi until west of Jakarta, making people easily move from those areas to other areas in Jakarta. Well, in the early morning of Tuesday on September 28, 2010, I have a duty to Bogor to interview a professor. The story about this will be written later... :) .
So, for the first time during last five months, I stepped in Depok Baru Railway Station. The passengers are so crowded waiting for the train to Jakarta-Kota and Tanah Abang. I have no wonder about this since today is working day until the officer in the station gave an announcement of the coming train from Bogor. This made me fascinated! The train were full of passengers even they had to sit at the top of the train and also hanging on the handle bar near the train door. This could be done only for the 'stunt master' for TV or film show... :) . And if you see this in your TV, there could be a text 'Don't do this at home' to remind the people not to do this.
As you can see in the picture above, that would be the profile of our public transportation nowadays. So what should we do to solve the condition like this? Any opinion?

Some People Reach The Top of The Corporate Ladder Without A University Degree

The statement above I quote from bonus magazine of Jakarta Post I borrowed from National Institute of Health Research and Development (Litbangkes). The magazine is Weekender, October 2010 edition. On Friday September 24, 2010, I borrowed this magazine from local library in my institute, so I hope I could read the magazine in my office while I was working with my daily activities. The magazine comes with many topics to read, but this topic seems the most interesting topic for me.

I don't mean that I have reached the top, but I mean most of the people today have a vision that being success will be reached by having higher degree. You may have a closer look at your surroundings. Some people reach success even though they don't have any university degree.

And, some people -unfortunately- have a look on someone by his or her degree. They will spread a red carpet if you have higher university degree. They will welcome you kindly. On the other side, if you don't have anything, you will be nothing in their visions.

And, this is the point of this writing, life is changed. Don't underestimate on someone.

First Trying of BlankOn v6.0 Ombilin

Today Tuesday September 14, 2010 is my first trying of another Linux variant. This variant is from Indonesian. Very unique in my opinion since it uses a name from common Indonesian tribe namely Javanese, Sundanese, Balinese, Madurese, etc. This Linux is BlankOn v6.0. This version of BlankOn comes with the name code Ombilin.

According to documentation, this BlankOn is derived from Ubuntu, so you can try BlankOn using Live CD without needed to change your computer settings. Another interesting side of this Linux is the use of Indonesian Language for most of the application menu, but not of them. Hmm, actually this would make me confuse since in computer application some people are familiar in English language. But this is not a big problem. If we use Indonesian language more often, so we will familiar. We just need a time to get adaptation.

Anyway, if you want to try BlankOn, you may download via this link Don't forget to prepare a space in your harddisk or flash disk for about 700 MB. After that, you may burn the downloaded iso file into the CD using Nero. And... a Live CD for BlankOn is ready.

Please underline that this posting is written using Live CD of BlankOn Ombilin version. Good job! Alhamdulillah.

Sesuaikan Etika dan Busana Anda dengan Lingkungan Masjid

"Sesuaikan etika dan busana Anda dengan lingkungan masjid".

That statement is quite common in our surroundings especially when we enter yard of a mosque. Some mosques warn visitors with such a statement I quote above. This is the second mosque I know having such a statement to remind visitors to adjust their clothes based on Islamic rule, at least to cover their 'aurat'. Please refer to Islamic book concerning about this, you may find it easily in your local bookstore.

The first mosque I know having a statement like that is Al Azhar mosque near Blok M area. The statement is written in such a big font size that everyone can see the statement clearly from a distance. Alhamdulillah, in Ramadhan 1413 H/2010 M, I found similar statement qlued on a wall in Al Maghfiroh Mosque around South Jakarta. Well, in my prediction, there would be a lot of mosques having a statement like that to remind visitors to adjust their clothes based on Islamic rule. What about the mosque in your surroundings? Has the management of the mosque (DKM or Dewan Kemakmuran Masjid) already warned their visitors? If not yet, why don't you advice the management about this?

Hmm, I guess there would be a growing number of mosques that will have a statement like this. Alhamdulillah, all praise is to Allah. I also remember that in some Islamic boarding school (pesantren) have similar statement like that, but in 'stronger' statement since they -perhaps- have more power. They remind their visitors with a statement like this:

"Anda memasuki kawasan wajib berbusana muslim/muslimah".
(You enter compulsory moslem/moslemah-dress area).

Installing ClustrMaps for Buku Islam Blog

September 05, 2010, I installed a blog tool to know location of Buku-Islam blog visitors. The tool is provided by ClutrMaps. It provides a geographical location of where our blog visitor come. Pretty useful.

Something to underlined that ClustrMaps doesn't provide a real time report, but it will update the report daily. So the image report we see is actually the description of visitors for the last 24 hours.

Below I captured a report from 5 Sept 2010 until 6 Sept 2010. So I only get description based on 24 hours basis. The report says that Buku-Islam blog visitors come from all over the world. Alhamdulillah. Most of them are from Indonesia and some of them are from United States. The rest are from many other countries namely Saudi Arabia, Japan, Qatar, and Morocco.

Well, this ClustrMaps is a very interesting tool, especially based on my humble opinion.

Indonesia's 65th Independence Day Commemoration

August 17, 2010, today is a special day for my people. Today is our country's Independence Day commemoration. We have celebrated this Independence Day for 65 times.

Being an occupied country is painful. And now we live in independent era since -actually- our nation can do anything without order from other nation. This idea always keep in my mind. Are we actually independent? Independence in my humble opinion is no control from other nation, and we can control ourself.

I don't want to create a list that our nation is being controlled by other nations. You may think by yourself. After that you may conclude your opinion. Please don't be so extreme, since you are Indonesian. So love your country, Indonesia.

Semarang Tawang Railway Station

Sunday August 01, 2010, the condition forced me to go back to Jakarta using train. Formerly, our plan was going back to Jakarta using airplane from Ahmad Yani Airport Semarang. Well, well, well. So our destination was to reach Semarang Tawang Railway Station. Alhamdulillah, I am very familiar with the condition around Semarang, since I had ever studied in Diponegoro University for years. And, train was my main transportation from Jakarta to Semarang.

The situation of Semarang Tawang Railway station is not changing much. I like the old building of this station which was created during the era of Netherlands occupation of Indonesia. The architecture is very unique. It creates a unique sense different with modern building. Well, I love it.

Hmm, I still remember 'my favourite transit', the mushalla. This place is the first destination when I reached Semarang after having travel from Jakarta. Yup, going to pray. Or, if I reached Semarang in the early morning, this place was my lovely place while waiting for the sunrise and continue my travel to Tembalang. Yup, waiting for praying subuh and for the sunrise.

Semarang Tawang Railway Station really has an interesting memory for me. Someday, I will travel and show this station and the memories lie behind this station to my beloved wife. I will show her my lovely memories...

Central Java Exibition 2010

From 30 Juli 2010 until 1 August 2010 I have a visit to Semarang - Central Java to join Central Java Exibition 2010 at PRPP - Semarang.

I have a travel by car to reach Semarang. This is actually a lovely trip to go. I really enjoy a long trip, alhamdulillah, I love everything called 'process' since actually I am a patient-type boy... :) alhamdulillah. And really love to watch or keep an eye on everything.

The participants of the exibition come from many institutions; goverment institutions, private company, universities, and even many schools. I will write about something interest later, about Batik. But later... I have to do a scout first (like gathering information about something).
