The Burial of Core Value!

13 06 2008

Hello there! I’m back…after a quite long time not posting… I faced my graduation exam in the last two weeks, along with its revision…well, finally the result of works so far gets its price! I’m graduated now! well, at that time, I had a time to go to the movie, and I wathced “Ayat-ayat Cinta”, a film by Indonesian director, Hanung Bramantyo, telling a story adapted from a novel on a same title written by Habiburrahman El Sirazy. I’ve got to tell, there is a disappointment of me after seeing that movie.

 

The biggest disappointment is that the core value which Habiburrahman wish to share to readers is that the character and its building process by the main figure, Fahri, and also the Islamic value. The novel tells a story about Indonesian student in Al Azhar University. Living in another country for studying is not easy, esp egypt. Fahri is described as a character-strong man, that he would do anything at any cost to reach his goals.

 

His journey from his flat to the place where he studies, the obstacles he faces, and everything are aimed to readers that we should be persistent and strong in achieving our dreams and our goals. Also, in the novel, it is told how a Muslim deals with anothers; either to people form same country, same race, same religion, or different country, race, religion! While, in the movie, all the things that is blown up is about Love! well, ayat-ayat cinta tells about love, but never forget, what is meant to be “Novel Pembangun Jiwa” is not only about Love! it’s about character! Jiwa means soul, and soul is not only about love, is more about character!

 

The core value that is burried in this movie:

 

1. Character of Fahri, the persistent, organized, target-minded which is only describe as a romantic, caring, and everything that is related to love.

 

2. Aisha, Fahri’s first wife! she is a gentle, caring, respectful, well-mannered, and obedient. while, in the movie, she’d be willing to yell (in loud sound!). Well, showing jealousy is common, but in the right way!

 

3. Fahri and Aisha’s first night. There is proper behaviour on first night of a bride and groom first night, or called as “malam zafaf” on the novel. while, in the movie, it is not shown, and directly to the “main menu” started with kissing!

 

4. The Polygamy. well, it’s not problem for the movie to be not as same as the novel, where it should be ended when Maria died after giving witness to the court, while in the movie Fahri and Maria, with Aisha, lived together in a family. It is hard to be fair to both wife in a polygamy, but my point is, in polygamy, a wife should be never seen by the others when she’s talking, intimating with the husband. in the movie, in almost every scene in the polygamy, Fahri either both with Maria and Aisha, is always seen each other.

 

5. A husband like Fahri is impossible to be not directing his wife to follow the believe or religion, with its behaviour. Maria did ‘shalat’ just in a moment before she died. She didnt wear veil, and her tatoo is still on her wrist. A good husband must direct his wife to follow the good value that he believes. Oh gee, in the movie, not at all!

 

Well, a little bit disappointment of me, and it’s just my opinion. My friend asked me about the movie, what score I give to it. I said…2 of 10! what a cruel! yup, for the core value that’s burried, it’s suitable. I dont have any problem for the unmatched story with the book, but for the value, I cant give any score more. This movie is more likely a sinetron in long duration. I regret this movie, only a little bit more, and it’s a “Film pembangun Jiwa” Well, I kind to have a thought, why dont Dedy Mizwar who produce and direct this movie. I think, it’ll be much better! So guys, what do you think?

Visit Indonesia 2008

11 02 2008
I once came into website having logo of Visit Indonesia 2008. I hovered my mouse on it, and there’s a link to its web page. Wow, what a promoting web page! It really shows seriousness of our government to promote Indonesia tourism on year 2008. Well, I fully support this program. It can increase Indonesia’s flag wave in international world and help local communities to develop their business, the home business one.
Indonesia has so many natural cultures, sites, cities, to see. The culture of Indonesia’s tribes has its reachness; exotic, various, and unique. Every tribe always gives new unforgetable experience to whoever having seen it. It is just too great to not see.
However, there’s something bothering my mind. Our government is busy in promoting the tourism but forgeting the fundamental thing: infrastructure. I, shortly, was reminded on how Jakarta, the capital city, was flooded by only single-day rain. It took down transportation, international airport Soekarno-Hatta along with its freeway, and even our national presidential palace. our president, President SBY, needed to move to Paspampres’s SUV to break through the flood.
Oh gosh, how can we attract tourists to come? How dare we, inviting them but on the other side, they are greet by such inconvenience. How can they recommend their relatives or colleage to come to our country? This will turn them not to see our country. I hope this thing will never happen again. We’ll learn to be better and fix up all from the most fundamental things. Visit Indonesia 2008.
    
  




Trip Report

8 02 2008

Howdy fellas…

Well, yesterday a accompanied my friend to observe her object on her research for graduation.

It is located in  Cileungsi, Kab. Bogor. It is a school, established as a Corporate Social Responsibility from a company: Holcim, which used to be PT Semen Cibinong. Well, I was just a few more kilometers, then I’d have been in my hometown ( 🙂 ).

It was started in the morning, with a backpacking style. While on the way, I was wondering if I can see an alternative way to Bogor, as I’m getting bored with the usual track in my way back home. The journey took 3 hours, and still needs half an hour to reach the place (God, so far away).

At the place, it was a nice one. It has plenty of plants which make the schools so green (in this era where “green” issue is hot, in the middle of factories area). I’d love to breathe the fresh air there. Well, the photos of this journey is still in my friend’s camera, but I’ll put it here soon. 🙂
