Why is there no support from them?

Tomorrow, the Hamilton City Christmas Parade will be happening. We have prepared a kind of budget float, but still spectacular I think. I'll show you the photos of our float in the parade next time I blog.

We have an outstanding decoration teamwork in designing and creating the float. It is funded totally by our own money as Indonesian society. But, I think we can do better with more funding.

One big question from our community at the moment, why is there no funding support from the Indonesian Embassy and Garuda Indonesia? Even there is no confirmation about the proposals we had sent. It is useless to send them those proposals then.

I can say here, we don't need the heck of their attentions anymore. Yes, we are Indonesian migrants in NZ as part of Indonesian Society of Hamilton NZ who are still holding Indonesian passports. However, I have to say here, we are Indonesian people with our own Indonesian spirit. There is no need for Indonesian Embassy or Indonesian airline company to cooperate with us and fill in our spirit. The show must go on.

Funding help is, in my opinion, a manifestation of attention. I must say that our attention as a migrant society is for our home country Indonesia, not to the Embassy or home airline company as both institutions may have lost our attention too.

It's fair enough. We don't pay tax to her and may not fly home with him anyway. We pay tax to NZ Inland Revenue at the moment and can subtitute with Qantas.

We are connected to our nation, but not the state or national company. It is called globalisation my friend...

Gobalisation is just like a huge ship with massive sails, strangely enough there is no one on board.

Keep up!
