A Romantic Journey

Respect

This has been another eventful week for me, although being in the media I cannot really remember the last time there really was nothing very much going on. As a matter of fact, as I’ve often pointed out, things are moving so fast these days that there often is very little time to absorb what’s going on let alone trying to figure out the meaning.


The one thing that is happening with increasing frequency is the number of people either getting sick or dying around me. Of course, this just goes to show that I am getting on in years or people are disappearing faster from the planet at a younger age than normal.

Chasing Time

Chasing Time

They say that time is relative. That is true, depending on the value you put into it. Five minutes can make the world of difference to someone who's just missed the plane. Being stuck in a traffic can seem forever if you're late for a meeting with an important client. While a week is a mere wink of the eye when you're enjoying a holiday of a lifetime.

As a matter of fact time (that is to say, reality) according to Einstein's theory, is relative, in that it requires a subject that enables the probable to become the particular, through conscious attention. Light is both a wave and a particle, depending on the circumstance. A universe of countless rubber balls has no meaning unless there is an observer that focuses on a one particular ball. That ball becomes real.

Sisi Positif PHK

(Tips for Life is a talk show on Metro TV hosted by Desi Anwar, every Wednesday at 10.30 am)

by Dion Juanda Gibran


Pemutusan Hubungan Kerja (PHK) saat ini sepertinya menjadi sesuatu yang menakutkan bagi sebagian orang yang tergantung kepada pekerjaannya. PHK juga berakibat bukan semata-mata masalah ekonomi, tapi yang lebih mendasar lagi adalah masalah harga diri, masalah mental, stress, depresi, menurunnya daya pikir, yang mana semua hal itu akan berdampak kepada memburuknya sikap tindakan yang terkadang sangatlah mengerikan.

The Sea

I was always never asked to go on family outings when I was a child, whether on a picnic or a trip of town, because I used to get terribly carsick. It was a bother for everybody else to have me along as at some point, despite the carsickness tablets, the plastic bags always handy and the occasional stopping of the car while I threw up and emptied my stomach at the side of the road, having me around in the car with my pale face and tortured expression somehow made the trip less fun for others.


Hence, while all the other children (namely my older sister and two cousins) would pack into the back of the American made Volkswagen with its left steering-wheel and flower power car stickers on the doors, chattering with excitement and so looking forward to going wherever it was my mother decided to take them to (my mother was the family driver), I would be either left behind or dropped back home (if I was in the car already) - waving goodbye, forcing a smile, pretending I was not disappointed or did not feel unwanted or left out.

Awet Muda Bertambah Usia

(Tips for Life is a talk show on Metro TV hosted by Desi Anwar, every Wednesday at 10.30 am)

by Dion Juanda Gibran

Adalah hal yang alami saat usia bertambah dari waktu ke waktu, namun sering kali orang merasa cemas saat menjadi tua, kepercayaan diri yang menurun, problem kesehatan, bermasalah dengan penampilan diri, tubuh yang berkeriput, bentuk badan yang tidak lagi sedap dipandang, dan sederet daftar lainnya yang bisa bertambah panjang dan berlembar-lembar kertas untuk menuliskannya.

Jangan melawan arus dan mengalir laksana air adalah kearifan alami yang menjadi dasar saat memikirkan dan menjalani proses bertambahnya usia.

Life Tips

Bad English Don't major in English. If you love studying English, there's nothing wrong with that. Just be aware that English majors generally don't earn very much. Six of the top ten list of majors with the highest salaries are engineering majors, with chemical engineering topping the list.
Get Nutty Now Nuts are good for you. If you’re counting calories, research shows that nuts aren't linked to weight gain.
What to do in an Earthquake If you're indoors: Stay indoors when tremors start. Get under a sturdy table, desk or bed, or stand in a doorway or an inside corner next to an interior wall: Keep away from windows, mirrors, glass, bookcases, light fittings, tall cabinets and fireplaces. If you're outdoors: Get into an open area; avoid buildings, walls, power lines and trees: If you're in a car, stop - but stay inside until the tremors stop. Avoid bridges and power lines.
