I just wanna share this story, I know that compare to most of the member who older than me, i dont have much experience about facing life, but hey, this bit young woman just wanna share to the reader, and hope it can give motivation to any younger reader

In the beginning of 2006 i was so confused and bit got lost in my life..
I have good job, not a great one, but at least i must be grateful to God the Almighty that compare to any indonesian i still have job and well paid.
But after a year one of the outstanding senior manager who also has great leadership and very competent in his field leave my ex employer, i try to stay at that company and learning does this situation will be better or get worst..

As Human resources practionner, i am inspired by dave ulrich in his book Human resource scorecard, that non traditional HR function in company not also as personnel administration, but HR is a change agent and strategic partner of management to aim company goal and realize co's vision in operation business, and also prepare the employees inline with company mission and vision. So I propose many HR work program to teh Director to improve the business and motivate the employees to deliver their best performance at work.

But after more than a year see the situation, predict that the rest management will not awake to change their old fashion business paradigm (not to mention their feodal style), i was determined my self to resign, though I had not got a job yet.

I Know it is a hard decision.. Some friends said i am crazy making that decision..But my sisters could understand me..
I better leave the environment if i feel i cant not longer get along with..instead of always complain every single days..
It is not easy to people to leave their comfort zone...and ready for strugling their ideal, do at their best endeavours to achieve what they dreams

I have tried find a better job, but until the latest week before I quitted from my ex employer, i have not got a good news.

So, as i planned to be a backpacker in some contries in europe by my saving money (the last 2 year i always save my salary for this)... I tried to
accept my destiny, take risk from my decision..
I believe after I enjoyed my refreshing time, met a different cultures, people and place..It can recharge my self to face my life..

Yes, indeed, i have a loveable, a great vacation there.. And i can practiced my French. i see the other part of world, see how they look a problem in different way. it is really enriched my self as a human..

Back in Jakarta, back to real life, i have to be in jobless situation for a bout 1 month ....depend on my saving money (cause i dont wanna ask money from my parents, i made this decision, so i must take the risk)
, but thanks God, finally I got job in big MNC IT company.

Yeah, that's life... the real life.. But i'm glad that i have made that decision, have gut to quit from my stable job although many people said that is a crazy decision..
sometime to make our dream comes true, we have to take a risk, dare to make a uncommon decision

HI DQ, welcome back. Nice to see you here.

Looks like a good holiday.

Sometimes it takes guts to change things, but you only live an average 22,000 days. why waste even one of them?

Good on you smile

Don't want to sound mean or cynical, but you
should've used your savings to get a home computer with broadband connection, then you could browse around, surf the net 24/7 exploring everything about France --- with the added benefit of NOT having to meet any of its people.

Diligaf, maybe you get confused with the ones in le botanique jardin in brussel, (the van gogh youth hostel -- formerly van gogh's appartment, where he stayed with his brother--) where i stayed in in rue de traverser, near that garden. there is 2 statue like that in that garden, but the one i take pic of is --you right it is Hercules statue conquer big snake-- Musee du louvre collection. I went to that museum 2 times, cause i really adore that museum, especially after i read "de da vinci code" dan brown right, we need more than 2 days to really enjoy the museum collection..

in palasade de tuileries there is no hercules statue

It is "Hercules struggling with serpent" by Bosio. 1824.

The statue is in the space between the northern and southern wings of the Louvre The Jardin des Tuileries is surrounded by the Louvre (to the east), the Seine (to the south), the Place de la Concorde (to the west) and the Rue de Rivoli (to the north).

Ahh. the wonders of the Internet! Search, Identify, Cut & Paste!

It is in my opinion unlikely that the concierge would not have allowed an unsupervised Polar Bear to wander around Jardin des Tuileries, much less the Louvre (to the east), the Seine (to the south), the Place de la Concorde (to the west) and the Rue de Rivoli (to the north).

If it had been allowed, there must be photographic evidence!

And on that subject! A Lizard is barking!

Personal Note - Search, Seek and Kill the Bastard!
