I read the news in The Jakarta Post about our partner, UN Habitat work (BRR warns it may take over unfinished contracts
, 8 March 2006). I calm my self then ignore it. Who care what big man with big salary say!
Later on, my boss informed all the officers that Kuntoro had been mislead by his subordinate who unable update the data properly.
Well, the news is out there big man. Better watch your word next time, we are partner in this confusion of construction.
Then I attended a seminar from Aceh Institute
about “The Role of Local Human Resources”, as a presenter (btw, no clear definition what is ‘local’ human resources). The chair of the committee, a good friend of mine, teased me about the news and he suggested that I say something.
I flared up! Then declare (in Indonesian) something like this:I don’t care what Kuntoro say, I do not work for him.As much as I don’t care what media write.I’m Pidie people, working in Pidie, for the people of Pidie.It is the word my partner, the Pidie people, that become my concern!The rest is not my business.
I’m so damn tired with so many people talking so many things. Yet they never really clarify or verify anything.
In this land where all people keep complaining about anything, from a relevant one up to a delusional one, you must have the ability to separate the noise
from the information
. Otherwise, you will end up distress and make the wrong decision.
So, here is a short stupid poem of mine:
boh rom-rom hana di Geumpang,
boh rom-rom na di Banda,
di pe buet hana,
peng habeh di sekuet
the stupid poem say: BRR is not present in Geumpang, they are in Banda Aceh, they just twist here & there, but non is done, yet the money is gone!
note : boh rom-rom is a nick name that I fond for BRR (Aceh & Nias Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Body
