I am Indonesian and I proud to be Indonesian. I am also happy to have the diverse cultures that spread over from Sabang to Merauke, between Raja Ampat and Wakatobi Island. The pride that has been embedded of birth is starting deterred by bad habits winds that occurred in Indonesia and even worse, many stereotypes of people of the world that Indonesia is not appreciate of the time.
Time is really important for the people in the world. Time is an opportunity given by the creator to someone to do what they wanna do, such as work, shopping, vacation, greet and share with old friends. The time can mean disaster or death for man who every day of his life will be reduced directly. It can also be transformed into the figure of the enemy when we have to complete the task of lecturers today it feels we hate it with the name of time.
Conscious or unconscious, the time always accompany every second time of a person's life. Such as that morning, everything had been prepared before to show my great faculty event on campus this year. The name is English Festival. I’m as a member in the execution of the program just to get the information that I had to come exactly at 6:00 am that morning. Actually it very difficult to get up and come to school in early morning. I just thought that I should arrive on time today I want to cut the assumption from people about my bad habit to always be late if I go to college. Hehee ...
Spirit to helping the faculty in the yearly event turned into a little anger that grows from the heart which has been considered that the Indonesian people less able to arrive on time. I can only be silent and wait until approximately 30 minutes. Then, the leader of the event came and the other members followed one by one. I asked the leader of the "why you come late miss ? she replied " late is better than not come" I immediately was suddenly quiet and think this is the figure of leader that should be an example for us ? how when everyone has the same answer when they are late in an event?
Say no to that. for my brothers and sisters around the world , not all people in Indonesia have a habit of unappreciate of the time because there are still also many people of Indonesia who respect the principle of time. Thank you very much
