Jablai Blog dan Mancrut Blog

Hi hi hi hi hi... Gue mulai dari ketawa dulu karena istilahnya sendiri udah bikin geli.

Pas gue buka google reader, ditemukan istilah "jablai blog" dari quicklink-nya Enda. Dengan rasa penasaran, apa sih artinya "jablai". Ternyata, "jablai" itu adalah "jarang dibelai", istilah dangdut yang gue dapet dari hasil search di google.

Gue jadi mikir, kayanya blog gue masuk kategori "jablai". Culun juga istilahnya.

Tapi gue ngerasa ga fair aja kalo yang satu diistilahkan "jablai blog" masa yang lainnya diistilahkan "seleb blog". Dari padanan katanya aja udah ga matching.

Gimana kalo kita ganti istilah "seleb blog" dengan "mancrut blog", yang mana bisa diartikan sebagai suatu blog yang komennya mancrut kaya air setelah diposting.

Kebetulan saat ini gue lagi kangen sama temen nongkrong gue di kampus dulu. Namanya Iman, sementara anak-anak manggilnya "Mancrut". Kenapa bisa dipanggil gitu? Sorry, yang ini ga bisa gue ceritain.

Anyway, gue mo balik ke Jakarta selama 3 mingguan tanggal 21 ini. Yang jelas gue mo contact yang namanya "Mancrut". Kayanya "old school spirit" balik lagi nih.

Feliz Navidad

Amris Hasan - Indonesian Ambassador to NZ

After a decision made by Commission I Meeting of Indonesian Parliamentary, 31 May 06, from 26 ambassador candidates suggested by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY), Amris Hasan is one of them as a candidate for Indonesian Ambassador to New Zealand (NZ).

Later on 18 Oct 06, President SBY inaugurated 24 Indonesian Ambassadors fixed Amris Hasan position as Indonesian Ambassador to NZ. Amris Hasan and wife arrived in NZ via Auckland on 18 Nov 06 with the last Garuda flight for this season.

At a party for introducing himself to Indonesian society in Wellington 26 Nov 06, Amris Hasan admitted that he is not a career diplomat. However, he convinced that his background and experience dealing with international affairs can support his function as an Ambassador.

Prior to this appointment, he was a Co-chairman of Commission I of Indonesian Parliamentary and Chairman of Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation Board which deal with international affairs issues. He was a member of House of Representative from Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle. And before that, he was a lecturer at the University of Indonesia with an MA degree in International Affairs from the University of Kent, Canterbury UK.

Relating to life and dynamic in an embassy environment, he mentioned that he had that kind of experience when his father was appointed as Indonesian Ambassador to Egypt. He is actually a son of ex Education Minister Prof. Fuad Hasan.

He promised to do a maximum effort in conducting his function and be open for any problems and issues from Indonesian people in NZ, including family matters as long as he can give advice and solution. (I reckon this is relating to the marriage between Indonesian Citizens and Non-Indonesian Citizens)

Coming along with him is his wife, Afi Shamara Hasan. Afi Shamara is a national film producer under a movie company, Kalyana Shira Film (KSF), which was established with her friend, Nia Dinata. KSF successfully produced several box-office movies such as: Ca Bau Kan, Biola Tak Berdawai, Arisan, Janji Joni and Berbagi Suami. Afi Shamara Hasan is also a daugther of Faisal Abdaoe, ex Pertamina CEO.

Still needs initiative, there is an inspiration to carry out an Indonesian Film Festival in NZ, of course with a full support from Madame Ambassador.

My Father-in-law Passed Away

It's been a while after my father in law passed away. That's why my sweetest faces (Nina and Kezia) had gone back to Indonesia since 18 Nov for grieving, left me here alone and unattended. That's okay, they can gather with family back home.

We left Indonesia 3 years ago straight after we got married, and as time passing by we now have our daughter, Kezia. Kezia was supposed to use a NZ passport as she's naturally a NZ citizen. However, the Indonesian embassy advised me that it would be better to use Indonesian passport for going back and apply for Returning Resident Visa from NZ immigration.
