    [WSK] G20 Seoul Summit Special 2

    What does the hosting of the G20 Seoul Summit mean to Korea? For a very long time, Korea has never been given a chance to establish international structures or frameworks. It had a challenging time just acquiring a membership to international organizations such as to the UN and the OECD. But with the hosting of the G20 Seoul Summit coming November, Korea has now opened a new diplomatic horizon for itself. Korea can now add its own voice to the global economic order as a rule-setter, not as a mere rule-follower; has moved from the periphery to the center of the global stage.

    [WSK] G20 Seoul Summit Special 1

    About the G20 (Group of 20) From the G7 to the G20 The G20 was formally established at the G7 Finance Ministers meeting on 26 September 1999. The emergence of the G20 stemmed from the changing economic reality a response both to the financial crises of the late 1990s and to a growing recognition that key emerging countries were not adequately included in the core of global economic discussion and governance. So, the original G7 (composed of the US, Japan, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada and Italy) grew to the G20. At the third G20 summit held in Pittsburgh on September 24-25, 2009, the G20 was designated as the premier forum for international economic cooperation. Today, the G20 represents two thirds of the worlds population and nearly 88% of the worlds economy. For amore

It was a beautiful sequence of events, nurtured by lot of religious, traditions, and also fun! :D the preparation: the place, the bride and the groom.

People congratulated the newly wedded couples. We made a simple servings at our home to welcome the guests. 2 days later, July 4 This is when the actual wedding party was held.

    Pameran Angkasa Provinsi Gyeonggi 2010

    terjemahan dari Gyeonggi-do Sky Expo 2010 This part of my life is called flying… Okay,, saya tidak benar-benar terbang (secara literal terbang di angkasa). Tapi pikiranku terbang bersama segala benda-benda angkasa (bukan bulan, bintang, matahari, tapi pesawat!) yang terbang melewati kepalaku. Saya ga akan tahu seberapa bagusnya Sky Expo sampai akhirnya melihat dengan mata kepala sendiri. Semua pesawat, helikopter, dan aksi-aksi akrobatik di udara, mengikat kaki ku tanah namun membuat pandanganku terbang ke langit biru.. menikmati segala yang indah.. Bukan saya yang ngambil (kebanyakan) foto2 ini, tapi si Badrul.. Baterai kamera saya habis karena lupa direcharge, dan baterai cadangannyapun hilang (nasib!). Untung saja, teman fotografer saya yang satu ini sudah punya foto2 bagus yan

    June 2, 2010: Korean General Election

    June 2, 2010 or tomorrow is a day of election.. Koreans are going to choose their politicians (both legislatives and executives). and.. what..? That means a holiday (yaay!), you smart! XD source: Korea Brand (anyone, mind to translate? :D) read more.. In Indonesia, an election usually are meant to choose only one kind of politician, whether it’s the legislators, or Mayor, or Governor, or President seat. Therefore there are so many elections held at different time. But in Korea, unlike Indonesia, the South Korea’s June 2 elections are designated to choose more, starting from ???? Council member, Province Governor, to the City Mayor. The campaign period was also done all at the same time, starting from a month before D-day. [Maybe you wonder how each candidacy didn't con

    Gyeonggi-do Sky Expo 2010

    see in bahasa Indonesia This part of my life is called flying… Well, I didn’t fly (like literally flying in the sky). But my mind flew along all the wonderful flying things around me. I didn’t know how good a Sky Expo was until I had seen one. All these planes, choppers, and the acrobatic flies bind me to ground, and made me looked up into the blue sky.. and enjoyed all the wonderful.. I didn’t take most of these pics, Badrul did. My camera went out of battery coz I forgot to recharge, and the spare battery was also gone (dang!). Fortunately, my fellow photographer had done a great job with his camera ;) The event was opened with a woman pilot. But not just any woman pilot, this one did acrobat flying very well. She was Svetlana Kapanina from Russia. She

    Hari anak di Korea

    terjemahan dari Children Day in Korea Di Indonesia, tanggal 23 Juli diperingati sebagai Hari Anak Nasional (HAN). Namun jika kamu bertanya pada anak kelas satu-tiga SD di Korea, kapan hari anak nasional? maka dengan mantap mereka akan menjawab tanggal 5 Mei! Berbeda dengan di Indonesia, hari anak di Korea adalah hari libur nasional. Oleh anak-anak Korea, hari anak dianggap sama dengan hari natal di belahan bumi barat — saat untuk hadiah dan bersenang-senang. Dikarenakan hari itu adalah hari libur nasional, orang tua-orang tua bebas memanjakan anak-anaknya dengan mengajak mereka ke taman hiburan, bioskop, kebun binatang, dan tempat-tempat lain yang menarik perhatian dan keceriaan si buah hati. Hari anak juga adalah hari untuk menghargai orang-orang dewasa yang berjasa untuk meningk

    Children Day in Korea

    lihat dalam bahasa Indonesia If you ask a Korean first or second grader what important event took place on June 25 they most likely won’t be able to tell you, but ask them what holiday takes place on May 5 and nearly every one of them will answer Children’s Day. Children’s Day in Korea is viewed by Korean children in a similar manner as Christmas is viewed by many children in the rest of the world — as a time for gifts and fun. Because it is a national holiday, parents are free to indulge the whims and wants of their offspring by taking them to amusement parks, movies, parks, zoos, and other places that draw the excited laughter of youth. Children day is also a day to honor adults that have contributed to improving the lives of children. (???!) Chi
