How to be a Creative Writer

Two weeks ago, I got an amazing opportunity to participate in Bandung Creative Writer Festival, an event organized by KPKers (Creative Writers Community).

In this event I learnt how to motivate ourselves to be consistent in producing writings, how to gain ideas for our writings, and many more.

There are three speakers in this event, which are Jumadi Haryadi, who gave tips and trick to easily write something (we even practiced it in the event), Pak Adrie Noor, who has published books abroad, and Pak Ali Muakhir, who has wrote many kids and teenagers books.

Motivation First!

We write because we have motivation to write. What is your writing motivation? What your motivation is will drive you to be a lasted writer or temporary writer.

I Participated in Lokakarya Sertifikasi Insinyur Profesional LSIP

Yesterday I participated in “Lokakarya Sertifikasi Insinyur Profesional LSIP” or Professional Engineers Certification Workshop held by “Persatuan Insinyur Indonesia” (Indonesian Engineers Association) in Jakarta. It was very awesome experience and I will tell you why.

At the beginning my motivation behind participating in this workshop was simply to get certified as professional engineer. Maybe if I get certificate, it will add value to myself. After I participated the workshop, being professional engineer is more than that. Being professional means to always work safely, to continuously improve oneself, and to contribute to the society. I am sure there are more than that, but those three points are what I remembered.

What did I get in Lokakarya Sertifikasi Insinyur Profesional LSIP?

In this lokakarya I got explanation about:

  • Indonesian Law no 11/2014 about engineering
  • Organization structure of Persatuan Insinyur Indonesia (Indonesian Engineers Association)
  • Engineer ethics code
  • Professional engineer application form – how to fill the application

Job Description of Project Engineer – My Real Experience (Part 2)

Please check first part of this post to explore my experience as project engineer 😉

I remembered the night when me and my colleagues went to Senoro 5 to show mechanical completion dossiers to our project manager. We brought three dossiers to show him the example. We thought he will be a little happy to check the dossiers and conclude that we are close to ready for gas in. Unfortunately, he didn’t.

At that time, I realized something more important that dossiers. He wanted to see by his own eyes that we’re ready. And dossiers didn’t convince him.

Fortunately, in the end we managed to get all aspects ready for gas in. Read More

Wunderlist: Powerful To-Do List Program

This time I will not write about chemical engineering, how to do calculation, and so on.. but I want to share about to-do list program I have used since yesterday.

For several times, I used Microsoft Office OneNote to create to-do list. It is very simple and nice. Every time I start my day at work, I open it and see what to do today. I found creating to-do list helped me focus.
