The Reward of Teaching

Buku belajar Bahasa Indonesia dalam berbagai bahasa. I've become a teacher since semester 9. That being said, my teaching journey started in 2013. Took hiatus for 2 something years then I came back to these exam sheets, students, books, and social interactions. Didn't even want to become one but I fell in love right after I jumped in.  I guess I need to ask to apologize to my dad. I was mad at him a long time ago because he asked me to be one lol. Well, maybe I just didn't like the idea of being a teacher in a class where your students don't even care about you telling stuff in front of the class. That actually made me realize that I prefer to teach whoever wants to learn. Although sometimes I just need to teach without knowing what's their reasons to learn, and that is also fine. I do what I had to do. That is why I hate grading because I don't mind giving them a perfect score but what's the point if they know nothing after the course ended? I never teach a

Short Visit to Bentoel Museum

 

This is part of improving my photography skill. So my friend, Sunan, will be included here.




 

It was a sudden decision. So we decided to visit Bentoel Museum in Malang. It's like House of Sampoerna (which I never visit and only plan to visit but no action). Why did we want to visit this museum? Because the museum is actually the house of Bentoel's founder. Our mission lately is snapping pictures of old buildings and such around the city, as well as learning how to take beter pictures.


 
 
he is just happy and allow me to put his photo on my blog or another website and I like this shoot

There is no fee to visit this museum, it is enough to sign the guest book. And then you can explore what's inside. Actually, there are not many things inside. But the objects inside tell you about the history of the Bentoel brand and how it was founded. Ong Hok Liong used his own house as the first place to produce the cigarettes and it is located in Jalan Wiromargo (around pasar besar Malang).  He sold the cloves and tobacco that are ready to use (kretek), turns out people love it because they only needed to prepare the paper to smoke (klobot). The name of the company was Strootjesfabriek Ong Hok Liong.


When he used this old name of the company, the business was not so profitable. Then he went to Gunung Kawi to find a better name for this company and changed it into Bentoel. Bentoel brand grew bigger as it is always in the top 10 of tobacco company in Indonesia. (This is written in Panduan Jelajah Kota-kota Pusaka di Indonesia - Emile Leushuis, as well as written in the big board in Bentoel museum)

 


There are so many photos of old times, and how this company grew up from a scratch to becoming part of British American Tobacco in 2009.

 
mesin linting. pakdhe punya beginian 

 

But what interests me more was the building. It is definitely the old building, old house, and how much I love old architecture like this. Why do I like old architecture like this? Because reminds me of the first ten years of my life when I used to live in a colonial-era house, similar like this. I was really sad when they sold our old house. So I keep looking for old architecture to get me back to my old time. Crazy huh?

 

 
I had this kind of windows with double protections

 

 
the door and window

This house is a typical old house with a big yard, big door and windows. I like the floor, the old design of the floor. Although for so many people this kind of houses are always scary but for me, it is so appealing. They always have a story in every corner of the house. Maybe, maybe if I have money I would love to build this kind of house 😍

Dapet Visa UAE (Dubai) Gampang Banget

Dubai creek Beberapa waktu yang lalu, kita pusing berat karena H dapet libur kali ini cuman 10 hari. 10 hari dari yang biasanya 14 hari. Akhrinya diputuskan untuk tetap mengambil libur tapi nggak ke Indonesia.  Ternyata, beberapa hari kemudian, dia bilang, kalau liburnya malah jadi 7-8 hari aja. Mau ga mau saya yang harus kesana. Maksudnya terbang mendekatinya. Udah milih-milih negara mana yang harganya rasional, yang ga banyak makan waktu buat terbangnya H, dan tentunya ga ribet urus visa buat pemegang paspor hijau yang ga sesakti paspornya H.  Btw warna paspor Indonesia jadi biru ya sekarang?? Pilihan jatuh ke Dubai. Pemegang paspor hijau harus bikin visa, ya pusing lagi deh cara bikin visa Dubai nih gimana. Apa iya sesusah bikin visa schengen, visa US, visa lainnya. dari persyaratan sih standar ya, termasuk  record  bank account selama 3 bulan. Emang nggak pernah bikin visa Dubai sebelumnya ya, apalagi H yang paspornya super sakti kemana-mana (hampir) ga perlu visa, dia ga pernah ad

Catatan Kuliah (6) : Masuk bareng, keluar bareng (?)

Sanur Sebagai mahasiswa yang masih belum mengenal kerasnya kehidupan kala itu, kita berikrar "Kita masuk bareng kita juga harus keluar bareng." Naif? Iya tentu. Maklumin aja namanya juga mahasiswa baru kan. Maunya yang  flawless  terus. Tapi apa salahnya sih berdoa baik kali aja malaikat mengamini lol.  Ternyata, kenyataannya, tentu saja tidak. Iya kalau semua  setting  nya  default  semua mahasiswa tidak ada kesulitan yang berarti, dosen nggak resek, mahasiswa juga nggak resek, data nggak resek, pasti lulus bareng kita. Kehidupan perkuliahan keras di akhir hahaha Gw dari awal masuk kampus ngerasa kalo gw nggak akan lulus tepat waktu. Aneh ya, harusnya orang mikir lulus tepat waktu tapi gw udah ada feeling. Dan gw berusaha keras buat nggak terlalu jatuh dalam angka. Ya maksudnyaaaa karena gw anak minor komputasi jadi gw udah bisa tebak lah data yang gw pake pasti agak makan waktu. Jadi  range  kelulusan adalah 7 semester, 8 semester, 9 semester, diatas 9 semester. Temen gw ya
