The Most Significant Transportation Innovation: Aircraft

From my point of view, the most significant transportation innovation of the past 200 years is aircraft. Aircraft have been fulfilled thousands dream of people by discovering a new way to go. The world has successfully been changed since the innovation found.
First of all, the first reason of aircraft is titled as the most innovative transportation discovery over the world because of its efficiency. The efficiency comes from the time domain. Comparing to the old one, to transport people from one island to another one required long time of period and process. One of the examples is condition in Indonesia.  To move people from the Kalimantan Island to Java Island, the amount of time necessary is about three days. Transforming to the new way, it only takes forty five minutes to reach the next point of destination (Java Island). This is only one example, I strongly believe we saved and reduced the amount of time necessary from 100% to 10%.The efficiency goes along the secondary requireme…

AYLA-ASEAN Youth Exchange 2015 (5): Pulau Ubin Camp

I am going to to tell my lovely strangers about one of the most memorable activity during the AYLA Youth Exchange 2015, Pulau Ubin Camp. This camp was held on 1 to 3 August 2015, with nobody expected what will be happened on the camp. For your information, this camp jus like Hunger Games, we need to survive without toilet, without taking shower, without bed, decent meal, etc. Luckily, i'd experienced worse then this camp, when i hiked to Cikuray Mountain in my country.  AYLA Initiation Night During the long night, we'd had camp fire activity. After that, on that wonderful night, we'd officially been inaugurated as an Asean Youth Leader Association (AYLA) new member after fought in confident walk to overcome our fear. 
We also needed to perform our skill/ability to amuse the current member of AYLA-International. I really had no idea in that time, so i just look up my phone, looking the lyrics of a song, then singing like a pro. The Whole Activity As a summary of the activi…

The Ideas to Inhibit Deforestation

Deforestation caused by human activity is happening in many parts of the world, with serious results in environment. To inhibit the impacts of deforestation, there are many possible things to be done which will be explained in this essay. First of all, the idea comes from the law sectors. The government and the law actors must create and implement the law about deforestation. If some specifics private sector want to do the logging activity, they must passed the environment impact test from certified institute. One of the example is the law that implemented in Indonesia. This law is called AMDAL (Environmental Impact Assessment). The AMDAL test included the various sectors of environmental, such as: infrastructure, neighborhood psychological, habitats assessment impact, etc. If those private sector pass the examination and assessment, they could do the logging activity based on the contract on the AMDAL.
The second idea is about keeping the logging target as a natural resource. Rather th…

AYLA-ASEAN Youth Exchange 2015 (4): Sentosa Island

I have never been dream before to take a single shoot in Universal Studio, Singapore. Luckily, the session today was organized in the Sentosa Island where the Universal Studio is located. The 3rd day activity was amazing race. Amazing race is a competition to complete the quest which had been given by the instructor. In order to complete the tasks, the participant must go to somewhere based on the clue given. After find the "secret place", we must do something to fulfill the request. The more you complete the task, the more you give the points.  Sontosa Island The term of "island" here is absolutely the "true island" because the total amount of the area is totally big. In my opinion, I need about a month to try one by one the playground arenas. During this amazing race, we had an opportunity to explore the big maps of Sentosa Island, such as: Siloso point, Beaches and Imbiah Lookout. The Bikini BarNo, there are no one using "bikini" in the midd…

Boy Scout: Grand Champion

In Indonesia, 14th August is the day we Indonesian celebrate the 54th Boy Scout Anniversary. As Indonesian, Boy Scout activity had been introduced since primary school. The first time i joined this activity was in the fourth years student in primary school.  Thousands of memories have been made by joining the activity, such as: camping, camp fire, confident walk, etc. When I realize, I feel little bit missing those moments.  The Grand Champion One of the memorable activity is a camping contest. Being representative of our school, we won almost five titles on different sectors, which made us crowned as a grand champion. That day, was a very prestigious for me. Here is the picture of ours. After that day, i continued my contribution in Boy Scout community until my final year in senior high school.  I've never regret about my decision entering the boy scout life  Antragama Ewa Abbas.

AYLA-ASEAN Youth Exchange 2015 (3): The Values of a Leader

One of the most inspiring speech during the GYLS 2015 was given by Mr. Lee Kuan Yew granddaughter. She was talking about the values of being a leader. Want to know more about this value? Let me explain for you, beloved strangers. Initiative,an ability to know what to do and how to do next.Determination,an ability to struggle and survive in hard condition to reach the goal. For myself, the value of initiative had been introduced since senior high school when I joined the student council (OSIS/MPK). In order to survive in this community, initiative was the first thing necessary to solve the array of hindrance. Before our superior told us what to do, we need to think about myriad solution based on the problems. 
The second value, determination, is a condition when someone defend their self for giving up. Without conscious, we always implement this value in our life. So strangers, believe to your self that old poem always said:  "Great leaders are made, not born"
