    It's the climb... (part 1)

    Gua ga ngerti kenapa gua jadi suka naik gunung di Korea. Gua bukan anak gunung sewaktu di Indonesia, ga ikutan pecinta alam, MenWa, PMR, SAR, TNI/POLRI, apalagi jadi pecinta sesama jenis (naudzubillah…). Terakhir kali gua ngikutin yang namanya kegiatan naik gunung adalah pas SMP. Itu juga bukan karena gua suka, tapi karena wajib (waktu itu SMP gua di kaki gunung Salak, jadi sering dipaksa pulang-pergi ke puncak gunung Salak, entah u/ pramuka atau “sekedar” kegiatan olahraga). Satu hal yang bikin gua jadi pengen naik gunung kayak anak2 gunung lainnya adalah… kayaknya asyik! ;) Ternyata asyik! Berawal dari ikut2an (kayaknya asyik), sekali, dua kali, akhirnya tiga kali gua naik gunung di Korea. Satu hal yang paling berasa ketika naik gunung, adalah kepuasan ketika me

    IFSA Assembly in SNU

    The International Forestry Students Association (IFSA) is the global network for students in forest sciences. It unites approximately 3000 students in about 69 member associations (called Local Committees) in over 40 countries. IFSA is a non-governmental, non for profit and non religious organisation entirely run by students for students. I were just invited for a lunch.. I’m not the kind of guy who made a trip just for a free-food (it’s a long trip anyway from Asan to Seoul, almost 2 hours). I accepted my friend’s invitation to broaden my knowledge, see more people, and have some friends! :D And here is what happened that day.. arrived at SNU, Gwanak campus.. It’s a beautiful campus! met my friend.. my friend, viko Since he was busy organizing the event

    Electricity: Indonesia vs ROK

    A writing from Dahlan Iskan (CEO of PLN, Indonesia’s State Electricity Company) about comparison of electricity in Indonesia and in Republic of Korea. It’s a good article showing an Indonesian perspective of Korean electricity. So, here’s the translation.. Dahlan Iskan: It’s just important when it’s dead! Last week I accepted guests from Kepco, leading power company in South Korea. Many things were discussed. Starting from nuclear energy to the electricity tariff there. In Korea, apparently Kepco was also asked by the goverment to service electricity to certain category with a very low tariff. The difference, evidently the lowest electricity tariffs in ROK were not for low class household. The lowest was given to agricultural sector. The policy had

    Hiking the BukhanSan..

    versi bahasa Indonesia Been waiting so long, but just now finally I’m able to hike a mountain in Korea… Before the trip was to start, I used to see Korean people, mostly elderly, wearing mountain gears. Whether a bag, sticks, or shoes, were easy to be found in the Seoul subway. One time, when I visited SNU (Seoul National University), I saw some elderly wearing those gears, and started hiking the hills in SNU (FYI, SNU is a campuss arranged by a number of mountains/hills). Little bit curious, but I didn’t take this Korean people hiking hobby seriously. Until then… [May 9, 2010] I, Ardy (Yonsei), Widita (KU), and Sung-Hyeon (Yonsei) decided to hike BukhanSan (???) or mount Bukhan. “San” (?) means mountain in Korean. No Big Deal!! From the info I he

    Naik-naik ke Bukhan gunung..

    see english version Sebenernya sudah pengen dari dulu2, tapi akhirnya baru sekarang ini bisa naik gunung di Korea… Sebelum acara naik gunung ini berlangsung, saya sering melihat yang namanya orang Korea, terutama orang tua2, memakai perlengkapan naik gunung. Entah itu berupa tas, tongkat, atau sepatu untuk naik gunung, mudah dijumpai ketika kita naik subway di hari libur. Pernah sesekali, ketika saya sedang main ke SNU (Seoul National University), saya melihat ada beberapa orang yang sudah cukup berumur, memakai perlengkapan untuk naik gunung, dan terlihat mulai menaiki bukit2 yang ada di SNU (FYI, SNU adalah kampus yang penuh dengan bukit/gunung). Sedikit heran, tapi saya belum menganggap serius hobi naik gunung orang Korea ini. Sampai akhirnya… [9 Mei 2010] Saya, Ardy (
