PPAN Jawa Barat 2010

Hello blessed brothers and sisters!
I'd like to share something, hope it'll be meaningful for all of us. Your comment or question is kindly appreciated and I'll try my best to get back to you then. Post that ya...

Buddies, I am currently being quarantined in Trio Hotel with 22 friends of mine at Gardujati street Bandung. Well, what crosses on your mind when you first hear this name of street? Yes you might have known that around the hotel where I am staying now, is the center of prostitution in this city known as Saritem. Well, I won't talk about it anyways, I didn't choose myself to be placed here. I just joined the selection and then I have to attend all of the steps. In fact, I never went outside of the hotel after 9 p.m. in the night, it's quite risky everyone!

The 23 of us are all the participants of PPAN program held by the PCMI and Disorda of West Java Province. PPAN stands for Pertukaran Pemuda Antar Negara or youth exchange program between Indonesia and other countries. PCMI stands for Purna Caraka Muda Indonesia which more or less means the organization deals with youth and it exists in some cities in Indonesia. Disorda is kind of government department which takes care of sport and anything related to youth activities.

We all come from several regencies or cities in West Java, I do come as a representative of Garut regency. We all here are being quarantined for three days and only 3 lucky, skillful and appropriate persons will be chosen to go abroad to represent West Java. Those lucky youths will fly to Canada, Australia and Japan. They will stay and do all fascinating, tiring and challenging activities in each country for about 3 – 6 months. I myself chose to go to Australia but it's all will be known two days later. Will I be one of those three lucky persons? Well, go or not isn't the main purpose of mine joining this selection. I know I have passed the last two steps and this is going to be the last - the final round. There's no point of not doing the best for this ultimate step.'s not that easy though, I consider sort of things that I'll face if I am chosen. Will I be happy? Yes, but will it be the best for my life? I just hope God will give me the best. It matters me not of being the chosen one or not. The main point is I have to make every second I have in this selection as worship to Him. I have to make each process as the thing that will make me closer to Him. Just Allah, that's all very much it!

See my next post soon, sleeping time :)
