ruang baru

Setelah berpikir berulang-ulang. Akhirnya saya memutuskan untuk pindah blog. The Cayman Islands yang biasa menjadi ruang saya untuk menulis mulai membosankan. Saya butuh ruangan baru untuk menulis. Dan pilihan saya atas ruangan itu jatuh kepada blog ini. dengan nama saya sebagai bagian dari alamat url nya. Kenapa? suka-suka saja. Gak ding. Selalu ada alasannya yang sesungguhnya, tapi rasanya saya tidak perlu bercerita. Anda nikmati saja ruangan baru itu. Oke. Ringan di bandwidth, tapi insyAllah lebih berisi.

RUANGAN BARU ITU

Robot

lgfp1823protect-destroy-transformers-the-transformers-movie-poster

Robot- robot ini dalam ukuran aslinya akan hadir dihadapan Anda. HBO Asia telah menerbangkan Autobot® and Decepticon® dalam ukuran sebenarnya ke Jakarta. Berdasarkan informasi yang saya terima dari Shia LaBeouf, mereka akan mendarat di Lantai 2, Atrium Mal Taman Anggrek (MTA), 29 November 2008, mulai pukul 10.00 wib. Shia juga mengatakan bahwa kedua robot ini ada di MTA selama dua hari saja dan kemungkinan besar melanjutkan perjalanan ke negara lain.

See you there, guys! 😀

UPDATE :

Sabtu, 29 November 2008, akhirnya saya datang ke MTA untuk melihat apa yang ditawarkan oleh HBO. Dan saya dengan amat terpaksa harus kecewa. The whole event is fun actually, but not for me. It’s for the kiddo (ages 5 to 15). For those who wants to meet a real robot, be prepare to be dissapointed. But, for those who bring his/her younger brother (So-so lah).

to HBO (Karen Lai and Angela), R&R (Mbak Rika, Mas Harry, Mbak Eny, Fifin, Astried, Ade) :  Anyway, thanks for the invitation to write some feedback about the event. The lunch was great, i’m full. Hehe.

human loves human by kontraS

poster-movie-section-1Human Loves Human is a social campaign by KontraS. The purpose is to prevent acts of violence and human rights violations. It does so by inspiring people to love each other because ignorance towards others and injustice for the weak can be transformed into tolerance and respect for every human being.

Human Loves Human will be presented by KontraS in an important cultural event: the Jakarta International Film Festival (JiFFest). JiFFest is widely known for its role in promoting the film industry as well as presenting entertaining films. At JiFFest, films are presented as a source of inspiration for people to do big things.

The movie Indiana Jones inspired Butet Manurung, a teacher teaching at a jungle school for orang rimba, which also continues to inspire many people. Soe Hok Gie started his struggle by discussing inspirational movies. The characters Lintang and friends in the movie Laskar Pelangi is an inspiration for children not to give up easily in the face of difficulties. Movies are a bridge between the politics and culture and work of art.

Human Loves Human is an effort to strengthen the bridge by spreading peace and anti violence. Violence and wars pollute the kind of clean politics and culture needed for the best interests of the public and common welfare.

Love in ‘Human Loves Human’ may be interpreted as an expression of human love. It would not be wrong. What we want to nurture is a greater kind of love between human and other living creature. Eric Fromm wrote about the art of loving in the warm relationship between mother-father and children, best friends, and lovers in affection, humility, sacrifice and courage. Human history has proven that hate and greed have caused human sufferings and destruction of universe, including global warming. All of which worsen the lives of human and other living creature.

Let’s celebrate the spirit of Human Loves Human by watching the best humanitarian movies at JiFFest this year. Enjoy the movies and let’s share the hope!

Vrijman

Vrijman, sebuah kosakata Belanda yang arti harfiahnya orang bebas, merdeka. Dalam bahasa Inggris, vrijman sejajar maknanya dengan kata ‘free’ dan ’man’. Free, diterjemahkan sebagai bebas, merdeka dan man diterjemahkan sebagai orang laki-laki, dewasa, manusia. Sayangnya dalam bahasa Indonesia, kata ‘vrijman’ yang diserap menjadi ‘preman’ mengalami perubahan makna dan berkonotasi negatif. Preman diartikan sebagai individu/sekelompok orang yang mendapatkan penghasilannya, terutama dari pemerasan individu/kelompok masyarakat lain.

Nah, aparat kepolisian RI melakukan sebuah usaha yang patut diacungkan jempol, walaupun mungkin saja sia-sia. Preman-preman ditangkap. Diperiksa identitasnya, digelandang masuk ke dalam sel. Mereka, para preman itu, anak bangsa yang salah arah. Mereka ada karena terhimpit keadaan, entah lingkungan sosial, atau ekonomi. Cengeng? Belum tentu. Terpaksa? Bisa jadi.

Masalahnya apakah karena terhimpit keadaan lantas menjadi preman dibenarkan, kan tidak. Ingatan kemudian membawa saya pada sepotong lirik lagu yang dinyanyikan Ikang Fauzi, diberi judul Preman.

Di zaman resesi dunia / pekerjaan sangat sukar / juga pendidikan
Di sudut-sudut jalanan / banyak pengangguran
Jadi preman / ‘tuk cari makan
Di balik wajah yang seram/ tersimpan damba kedamaian
Di balik hidup urakan /mendambakan kebahagiaan
Bahagia…bahagia…bahagia…

Seorang preman tidak membutuhkan apa-apa. Tidak butuh ditangkap, tidak butuh ditanyai macam-macam. Mereka hanya butuh memenuhi kebutuhan hidup mereka dengan layak. Sebuah masalah klasik yang sebenarnya kompleks. Soal pemerataan kesejahteraan, dan pemenuhan hak azasi manusia atas pendidikan yang cukup.

Solusi yang paling feasible untuk mengurangi praktek premanisme salah satunya adalah kontrol sosial yang dilakukan anggota masyarakat sendiri. Dengan melaporkan kepada pihak terkait misalnya. Atau dengan membina para preman tadi untuk masuk kembali ke masyarakat. Tidak perlu takut pada mereka, apalagi berprasangka buruk. Mereka juga manusia, diciptakan semata untuk beribadah pada sang Pencipta. Masyarakat harusnya bisa belajar dari apa yang dilakukan H. Anton Medan. Beliau membina mereka-mereka yang baru ‘lulus’ dari hotel prodeo, agar tidak kembali salah arah. Dan ‘siswa’ binaan beliau pun terbukti bisa berkarya walaupun raport hidupnya sudah dinoktah dengan cap ‘mantan napi’.

Di kampung saya, mereka-mereka yang terlanjur dicap sebagai preman diajak warga untuk berkarya, dengan modal dari swadaya masyarakat. Beberapa dermawan bahkan mengajak mereka untuk bekerja. Hasilnya, mereka kini tidak lagi meresahkan dan justru membantu warga lainnya menjaga keamanan kampung.

Apakah teman-teman punya solusi lainnya?

Pahlawan teror

Mereka yang pernah berjuang untuk membantu negeri ini menjadi nyata, tidak pernah mengharapkan gelar. Hidup mereka memang sudah digariskan menjadi seorang pejuang. Gelar “pahlawan” ditambah embel-embel kata “nasional”, saya rasa tidak pernah sekalipun terlintas dalam pikiran. Saya percaya mereka saat ini sudah tenang karena tugas sudah dibayar tunai. Walaupun perjuangan tidak pernah mengenal garis final. Soal bagaimana sebuah perjuangan dilanjutkan, itu sudah menjadi urusan kita-kita, generasi yang masih bernafas di bumi pertiwi.

Menyoal penghormatan cukup diberikan dengan melanjutkan perjuangan mereka setulus hati. Tidak perlu kemudian berpolemik soal siapa yang pantas dan kriteria apa yang menjadi standar baku agar seseorang bisa mendapat gelar. Sudahlah, mereka yang pahlawan saja tidak pernah meributkan soal itu. Kenapa kita yang masih hidup malah ribut? Apa iya mereka sempat menulis wasiat kepada anak cucunya agar suatu hari diajukan proposal mengenai pemberian gelar pahlawan nasional? Kan tidak.

Kalaupun ada sebuah wasiat misalnya, pasti isinya pesan yang singkat soal melanjutkan tugas yang mereka perjuangkan selama ini. Itu yang lebih penting. Negeri ini hanya butuh satu hal : mereka yang mau berjuang. Tidak lagi butuh mereka yang senang beradu otot, atau senang berteriak-teriak. Ibu pertiwi sudah lelah melihat darah yang mengalir. Ini sedikit ribut. Itu sedikit lempar batu. Agh STOP!

Teror. Itu kata yang melompat-lompat di kepala saya. Negeri ini penuh teror. Ada yang hanya main-main. Mungkin otak dan hatinya sudah pindah ke bawah kaki. Ada juga yang dengan semangat, mengepalkan tangan, dan berteriak, “Kami akan melanjutkan perjuanganmu Ya Amrozi! Ya Mukhlas! Ya Imam Samudera!”. Nah yang ini mungkin otaknya sudah digadai dengan dendam. Lugu, berwawasan sempit, dan yang paling berbahaya, gelap mata.

Saya mengelus dada, ketika melihat berbagai tayangan di televisi mengenai eksekusi mati trio bomber Bali. Beragam komentar, beragam argumen, dan lagi-lagi polemik menyoal hal-hal yang buat saya non-sense. Yang satu melarang mereka menggunakan kata ‘mujahidin’, yang satu tidak mau kalah ‘bombastis’. Dikatakan, “mereka yang melarang kami menggunakan kata ‘mujahidin’ berarti melanggar HAM!”.

Seminggu terakhir ini melihat berita di televisi terasa melelahkan. Ya ya ya, silahkanlah kalau anda-anda mau pakai gelar pahlawan. Terserah sajalah. Bukan tidak peduli, bukan. Satu hal yang diinginkan orang awam seperti saya ini, kedamaian, itu saja.

Ya Allah, berikan negeri kami hidayahMu, luruskan pandangan kami tentang agamaMu, bersihkan pikiran dan hati kami dari kata dendam, dan suudzon, rahmati kami dengan keadilanMu, jauhkan negeri kami dari kemiskinan, dan lapangkan kami rizkiMu, Ya Allah. Sesungguhnya Engkau yang Maha Mengabulkan segala permintaan. Kabulkanlah permohonan kami. Amiin.

energy journey : my father’s pathway

Tulisan yang anda akan baca berikut ini adalah sebuah comment yang diberikan ayah saya, Kartono Sani, setelah beliau membaca salah satu laman yang terdapat dalam blog ini. Karena comment beliau rasanya cukup panjang dan insyAllah bermanfaat, saya fikir kenapa tidak saya post saja sekalian. 🙂

——–

Hi, Adit, Assalamu’alaikum.
When I was kid in 1960s, my dream was someday I wanted to be an engineer, it was just becaused close friend of my dad was one of a few engineers that days. On his jeep that was infrequently owned by ordinary people he looked so superior and to have been perceived as if he knew everything and solved every problem. As I grew, things change, I saw more and perceived things differently, but those strongly planted stayed until I went to college and majoring geology, although deep in mind I prefer architecture actually.

Time went by and as I got more knowledge and experiences I gradually fell in love with the more scientific than engineering subject and very grateful that i eventually can climb career to the peak of professional ladder as advisor of petroleum geosciences, besides managerial, and of course forgot architecture, despite it’s still my favorite topic.

We don’t do what we wish but what we can and when we sincerely do what we can it may lead us to what we want as God always listen to our heard, our pray. So, whatever you dream you are what you think, keep praying and close to the Ultimate Reality, do the right things right and Allah SWT will lead you how to think and take you to your dream.

When I considered to take energy mgmt at SSBM-ITB, I wrote the following. have a nice reading!

Energy Journey

He was a peddler when teenager, true peddler and went through the Secondary and High School with his merchandises on his back. People walked to worksites, or on bikes, only a few used motorcycles. Energy used was restricted, most people did not consumed that much extracted fossil energy for their activities like today, the peddler too, instead relied on build-in natural human body system and it was truly healthier. The world still found about 30-60 billion barrels of oil per year these days, while at the same time only consumed about 6 billion. This however already doubled of those during the World War Two. Oil production around the sixties was seven barrels of oil equivalent per capita per year compared to around eleven today.

The peddler had to walk 10 to 20 km everyday to hawk his assorted cakes, drink or fruits harvested from his family land, and took him three to five hours until he could walk lightly as the stuff sold out and earned pennies. From those activities, he funded his own school, bought his needs and helped his mother while he still could play around the vast, old, Dutch mining-made-lake, where clear and cool water flowed through the family land peacefully, from where his family planted rice and assorted vegetables, raised chickens, ducks and other poultries. Joining his uncle in fishing and trapping pigeons or quails in the secondary forest surrounding the lake was among his favorites. He might consumed more food compared to most teenagers after his 70 pound slim body being dehydrated under the tropical sunny coastal town, but still under very efficient mobile system and so very cheap. At the nowadays rate, he comparably earned at least US$ 10 daily, and all his activities probably only cost him a dollar or two for two plates of simple “tegal” menu and already included free drink. What a simple life; went along with family, neighborhood and Mother Nature as well, childhood indeed peaceful.

He left the motherland where he grew and crossed the Sunda Strait on a diesel-fueled ship Srivanca to the Land of Java in late 1973. Java in common and Jakarta in particular were indeed different; the metropolitan dependency upon the fossil energy has since been increasing exponentially. After missing AGP (Academy of Mining Geology) in Bandung, which had in fact been closed for new student that year he was one day on train heading east to Yogyakarta with his dream. And it was indeed challenging moments to be away from home without the necessary support, he eventually in early 1974 simply begun his geologic study at the UPN Veteran in the student city. After almost four years struggling for the fittest relied on restricted resources and dragged his feet for dignity; in 1978 – just one year before the world energy production per capita peaked at 11.15 BOE per year in fueling the journey of the industrial civilization – he gained his Bachelor of Engineering degree rightfully proud.

The world energy production has since been declining actually, at gentle slope for 20 years until the year of 2000 before it continuously slides at the current level. At this time, findings of new oil already declined to around 40 billion per year, while consumption increased exponentially to 23 billion. As Bachelor of Engineer in geology he served as assistant lecture in structural geology and earned 10 to 15 dollars a month for mentoring hours he spent in class, with what he seemed to survive and passed through the doctoral grades for engineering degree with enthusiasm. Although it was just barely enough to survive, he very much enjoyed better pride and of course free from hunger like he was when he had to walk along the river Tjode or bartered his only clothes just to buy cheap food.

It was 1981 and he was around the campus from field work after joining exploration project for hydrocarbon potential and ran out of money when a national geo-services company looking for fresh graduates conducted interview, without thinking twice he got himself in the long line and tried his fortune. And it was a kind of weird or probably good luck as while the other participants felt that they got very difficult questions during their interview, he immediately could negotiate and agreed business deal with the company representatives following a simple introduction and conversation; with about 300 dollars in pocket he got all he needed to complete a simple “so and so” thesis and then simply start to work or go public, he wondered.

He worked for the company the following year, although it was not a decisive action for he felt that it was not on tract of what he envisioned, pragmatism and idealism were conflicting and this dictated his earlier career entrance in the energy industry. Time went by; he was on small boat leaving the capital town Sintang traversing across the Melawi basin of West Borneo and sailed upstream along the broad rivers of Kapuas and Melawi far away north just below the drainage bounding mountainous terrains to Serawak. The more upstream his boat intruded as he climbing the old continental peneaplain the more outcrops he observed, measured and sampled, but less and less civilization met. Four months day and night traversing the old strong rivers, intimated the rocks, the waterfalls, the river rapids (riams) and banks, the sand bars, the water current and fishes, the jungle and the heights, he fell in love. At night while the plain Dayak supporting him fell a slept he bowed down deeply and echoed his gratitude into the darkness of the jungle that Praise Be to The Most Gracious and The All Merciful.

Less and less logistic left on boat while more samples collected for microscopic thin sections and lab work and in camp; field note by field note translated, interpreted and incorporated into various maps to illustrate 3D configurations of the geology, the basin history and potential. Although the expedition concluded that no evidence of the presence of adequate heat flows to cook the hydrocarbon source rocks identified in the interior fractured sagging basin of the Sunda Craton and charging for the latter defined trapping system was questionable – and so no drillable prospects were recommended – it was the first time he begun to love the profession as geologist. From Melawi without much formality, his geologic journey had since been extended to Barito basin in South Kalimantan and Berau basin to the northeast, West Timor in the eastern region and the many geologic basins in Java. Under Mobil Alternative Energy and then Amoseas Indonesia, his journey went through the Lengguru fold thrust belt in Irian Jaya, the Misool Islands fold thrust belt north of Ceram, The Ambon Bay intrusion structural complex terrain, the thin-skinned thrust belt of Timor, the Makassar Strait Lariang basin of Celebes.

Enamored of the long geologic journey and enjoyed in deep engagements with the many world class geologic experts involved in the races for new oil reserves of multinationals in Indonesia, had unconsciously re-generated his idealism technically and visionary. At that times, following the world energy production declining in the era of eighties to nineties, biggest multi-nationals such as Mobil and Chevron-Texaco, Shell, BP or Conoco were very aggressive in exploring for new reserves worldwide. Although Chevron-Texaco still produced 800,000 BOPD from the Rokan block in Central Sumatra basin, they established Amoseas Indonesia and invested a lot of resources just to explore the eastern region. So did the other Top Five, all maintained more balanced portfolio in the country while they drained their old discovered fields until eventually in 1996 Amoseas was dropped, most multi-nationals held their horses for exploration and seemed to agree that no more new reserves can be discovered. And what behind the scene has since been bothering his mind.

The world energy production slide further and entered new scary stage. From Amoseas, he was subsequently transferred to the sister company, Caltex Pacific Indonesia and worked for the New Ventures & Business Development as Senior Staff and then Advisor Petroleum Geologist. From the new position, he could simply look the actions of the oil companies in the last decade to provide the best gauge of how they see the future. Crude oil prices have been doubled since 2001, but oil companies have only increased their budgets for exploring new oil fields by only small fraction. The biggest oil producer Chevron Pacific Indonesia only spent pennies for exploration in Indonesia. Likewise, U.S refineries are working close to capacity, yet no new refinery has been constructed since 1976. And oil tankers are fully booked, but outdated ships are being decommissioned faster than new ones are being built. The real reason no new refineries have been built for almost 30 years is simple: any oil company that wants to stay profitable isn’t going to invest in new refineries when they know there is going to be less and less oil to refine.

He of course no longer able to dream simple life like he was as villager and contributed much bigger share in the current world energy consumption, as Jakarta citizen with wife and two growing kids and all the attributes, his family has to spend at least US$ 780/c/year for home electricity and transport in the capital city. At current prices, it is surprisingly about equivalent to 11 barrels of oil per capita per year, the world peak oil consumption in 1979! While the world oil consumption declining and instead developing more energy alternatives, we unfortunately consumed and dependence more and more on the non-renewable energy as if no peak to come, while produced less and less. Worldwide, the consumption/discovery ratios have nearly reversed themselves in recent years; the world consumed around 25 to 30 billion barrels per year, while only finds less than 10 billion. Reserves Replacement Ratio continues to deteriorating. While it took 125 years to burn through the first trillion barrels of oil, at the current energy consumption it will only take 30 years to burn through the next trillion.

The race for world energy has changed drastically. In Indonesia, drainage process of the existing oil and gas pools have since been accelerated to meet short terms, annual demand. While the Government kept issuing incentives for the production acceleration and enjoyed the increasing high prices, multi-national likewise happy to have apparently invested more under the Production Sharing Contract’s cost recovery and incentives. Otherwise, exploration if any has been focused on marginal prospects around the producing basins at courtesy levels. While they drained the national reserves, they bring the money they earned to invest outside in their more competitive global exploration portfolio. It’s weird that both government and the multi-nationals seem to go along and happy under the imbalanced-national portfolio at least during the last decade.

In addition to lowering their investments in oil exploration and refinery expansion, oil companies have been merging as though the industry is living on borrowed time: BP and Amoco merged in December 1998, BP-Amoco and Arco agreed to merge in April 1999, followed by Exxon and Mobil in December 1999, Chevron and Texaco in October 2000, then Phillips and Conoco in November 2001. In September 2002 Shell acquired Penzoil-Quaker State, Frontier Oil and Holly agreed to merge in 2003, followed by Marathon acquired 40% of Ashland in March 2004, Westport Resources acquired Kerr-McGee in April 2004. In July 2004 analysts suggested BP and Shell to merge, followed by the acquisition of Unocal by Chevron-Texaco in April 2005 after involving Congress in winning the competition with PetroChina. Royal Dutch and Shell merged in June 2005. Mergers and acquisitions are the corporate world’s version of cannibalism. When any industry begins to contract or collapse, the larger and more powerful companies will cannibalize/seize the assets of the smaller, weaker companies. Similarly, the phenomenon outside the energy industry includes the airline and automobile industries.

As the results, the national energy industry has been dragged and misled to joining the race for the restricted discovered resources, big discoveries to replace badly declining national reserves getting scarce, the BanyuUrip discovery in Cepu could be the last if the government do not realize the short coming disaster and turn the direction of the national energy management. Just like farmers have to open new farms while harvesting, the government needs to strategically lead the industry to invest in new exploration proportionally while oil and gas fields discovered in the past are being drained.

Joining the national company Medco E&P Indonesia for the last two years after being enthralled with its aggressive exploration portfolio, he was pondering whether he should join the Sampoerna-ITB School of Business & Management, the skipped level meeting with the CEO last week so inspiring, encouragement of his wife so empowering. As he grasped the door of his Camry wondering how he can influence and help manage the national portfolio if he just an advisor petroleum geosciences.

Karakter

Manners maketh man’, ucap William of Wykeham, seorang uskup dari Winchester, Inggris. ‘Manners make us human’, mungkin itu yang dimaksud sang uskup. ‘Manners’, secara luas dapat dimaknai sebagai karakter, kepribadian, dan menjadi diri sendiri. Uskup William menggunakan kalimat ini sebagai motto yang dipegang teguh oleh Winchester dan New College nun di Oxford, Inggris sana. Beliau menginginkan para pemuda yang tengah dididik di kemudian hari dapat memiliki karakter, seperti apapun itu, yang utamanya bertata krama, dan menjadi diri sendiri.

Dari pengantar diatas kemudian kita mengenal sebuah lagu Sting yang mengamini ungkapan uskup William.

If, “Manners maketh man” as someone said/ Then he’s the hero of the day/ It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile/ Be yourself no matter what they say … … Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety/ You could end up as the only one/ Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society/ At night a candle’s brighter than the sun/ Takes more than combat gear to make a man/ Takes more than a license for a gun/ Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can/ A gentleman will walk but never run …  (Sting, Englishman in New York)

Sejarah manusia telah mengajarkan kita banyak hal, begitu banyak manusia yang sejak muda sudah berani memiliki karakternya sendiri, dan berakhir dengan menjadi sesuatu. From nothing to something, a nobody to somebody. Arnold Toynbee menyebut mereka yang ‘membentuk’ sejarah ini sebagai, “Minoritas Kreatif”, kaum minoritas yang bergerak melawan zaman.

Mereka yang menjadi minoritas kreatif seperti disebut Toynbee tidak pernah menunggu, mereka pemain dan selalu bergerak bersama mimpi. Hidupnya penuh gairah dan gelora. Optimisme sudah terpatri didalam pikirannya. Merekalah yang berdiri ditengah keberagaman. Sorot matanya tajam, menunjukkan dedikasi yang tinggi bahkan pada hal-hal yang kecil mendetil. Tangannya selalu diatas dan penuh kelembutan, walaupun terbiasa menghantam batuan zaman yang keras. Kakinya selalu memijak bumi, seolah dunia hanya sementara, sedang tujuan akhir adalah beribadah kepada Tuhannya.

Bukan tugas ringan menjadi manusia semacam itu, tetapi keIndonesiaan belum final. Proses itu masih terus berjalan. Terus dan terus hingga akhir zaman. YB Mangunwijaya berucap mengutip ungkapan yang menjadi semboyan Raja-raja Ligne, “Quo res cumque cadant, stat semper linea recta!” Biarpun semua roboh, tetaplah di garis lurus!
