[INFO] A New Conference to Join: TIUMUN

My good friend from Tokyo International University is opening an invitation for its inaugural Model United Nations conference:

The outer space has been a fascinating frontier to explore since the first launch of telecommunication satellite. However, it has been really friendly with the advancement of technology making outer space-based weapons possible. The First Committee of the United Nations General Assembly, Disarmament and and International Security Committee is strongly concerned about this matter.


Tackling this unconventional and contemporary theme, the Tokyo International University Model United Nations Club (TIUMUN) will serve its best to hold its inaugural conference, MUN@TIU 2018, under the theme of Prevention of Weaponization of Space. Located in the beautiful city of Kawagoe, Saitama, the TIUMUN Club has participated in more than 8 conferences in two years of its creation, and also winning awards and mentions on every conference. With its high quality human resources, the TIUMUN Organizing Committee will bring a new, unique, and fruitful MUN experience to Japan. The conference will be held on July 6-8 in Campus 1 of Tokyo International University, Kawagoe, Saitama, Japan.

He Knows How to Win

Reading the news of how Sir Alex Ferguson was urgently admitted to the hospital due to a brain hemorrhage was a little devastating. Yes, Fergie has retired, and you cannot betray his age of 76. Even the man from Govan has his own limits, certainly. Continue reading “He Knows How to Win”

Ini Dia Sang Maha-Derbi

Saya telah beberapa tahun terakhir menyaksikan Derbi Manchester, dan saya menyadari pula makna derbi ini bagi kedua klub. Selama waktu-waktu terakhir, khususnya ketika Manchester City telah keluar dan berganti status dari ‘tetangga berisik’ (noisy neighbors) untuk menjadi juara Liga Inggris beberapa kali.

Bagaimana Anda membungkus sebuah produk

Ada sedikitnya tiga cara bagi sebuah perusahaan untuk membungkus (package) produk yang dijualnya. Pertama, tidak perlu bungkus apa-apa, cukup barangnya saja. Kedua, ada bungkus biasa, standar, hanya untuk menjawab tujuan pragmatis demi penampilan luar dan perlindungan dasar. Ketiga, Anda membungkus produk untuk membangkitkan gelora konsumen dalam menggunakan produk Anda.

Mari belajar dari Apple. Continue reading “Bagaimana Anda membungkus sebuah produk”

Alangkah Indahnya Kalau Suara Dipadu!

Saya bergabung bersama sebuah paduan suara sebelas tahun yang lalu, di penghujung tahun 2006. Tepatnya, sebuah paduan suara sekolah menengah atas. Setelah itu, saya tetap aktif bersama paduan suara tersebut hampir 10 tahun lamanya, bahkan lama seusai saya lulus dari sekolah tersebut.

Beberapa hari ini, saya ikut merenung sejenak, apa sih hebatnya paduan suara? Lama berpikir sambil mendengarkan lagu-lagu paduan suara nan indah, saya menemukan beberapa titik terang.

Singkatnya, bersyukurlah Anda jika Anda bernyanyi. Continue reading “Alangkah Indahnya Kalau Suara Dipadu!”

Thoughts on “Origin”

As usual, I welcome Dan Brown’s new novel with joy. I’ve been reading his work since The Da Vinci Code (and the lovely prequel, Angels and Demons). This time is no different. Origin is Brown’s newest novel.

I purchased one for my Kindle, and I devoured the novel in 6 something hours—cover to cover.

The story was meant to tell us about the origin and destiny of our life. Out from the longstanding debate about the role of religion in human life, who is supposed to be rational, the main character Robert Langdon’s good friend—a scientist who perhaps tried to be a bit Musk and Jobs at the same time, thought that he has found the answer, that is, before he was murdered.

Then, Langdon, the claustrophobic, user of Mickey Mouse watch, symbologist professor of Harvard bound for a journey across Spain with who was the future queen of Spain. The journey was to find a 47-character password to open a presentation file.

Only, different from Brown’s other novels, this one fell flat on me.
