“I’m ready to paid only half from my previous salary as long as I’m not expelled from Indonesia.”
Last weekend I met one of my expatriate friends on Atrium Mall, Senen. Well, that meeting was unexpected because I told him that I’d be on my campus but later on I remembered that so many cancelled appointments here and there that I decided to go.
Meeting him as a friend is always a blessing for me. Smartest guy I ever knew, from politics to economics, he excels both. We can’t deny that our life is depended on these two: what we would eat today, the price of our clothes, our savings for kids and the future, how many wedges and stilletos and kitten heels should we own, etc. The better the politics of the country, the better the economics as well – it effects the price of the goods and can be increasing or decreasing our purchasing power.
We also can’t say that one country is the safest eventho there’s a research on it. Well, lucky you guys who are living there 🙂 What I mean is, even the safest country in the world has its own insecurity, and maybe that’s not really a major problem, so it’s not considered as troubling.
Then what about Indonesia? Mirroring from last events on Nov 4th 2016, Dec 2nd 2016, and the current one on Feb 21st 2017, sorry to say, Indonesia’s politics has been crazy — in a bad way. Indonesia’s stocks had been decreasing since 4 months ago, make me even doubter to invest some of my money there. I also think to do some forex trading but blah, I think no for now lah due to some reasons 😆
My friend compared Jokowi, our current president, to some influential person based on how good and how smart that person is. He said that not many people that can do both, becoming good and smart at the same time, one can be good but not smart and one also can be smart but not good. On his POV, Jokowi owns both quality.
So, thanks to Jokowi? 🙂 The more I know projects Jokowi handles these days makes me more excited and impatient to enjoy the facilities he builds! Even my friend said that statement above, the statement I wrote earlier as an opening.
By this project I dream myself to travel around Sumatera only by LRT 😆 *semoga kesampean ya Tuhan*
Will you give thanks to Jokowi as I do? 🙂
