A Tribute to Mazars

I am dreaming to be an auditor since I was in senior high school. My teacher told me how challenging and pleasant works of her as an auditor.

And then, when I was in University, I've got a brilliant lecturer for three subjects of Auditing: Auditing 1, Auditing 2, and Auditing Laboratory. She worked for PWC when she was younger and single. She sometimes told her students in the class her experiences in PWC. I am impressed and amazed. Now she is a head of finance at my campus, Perbanas.

She and all of her experience made my obsession to become auditor stronger.

Story goes on. Every year, all of CIMB Niaga scholarship recipients, like me, have an annual gathering. And once, the motivator of the gathering in 2010 (if I am not mistaken), said that all of us should have THE BEST DREAM to be dreamed, don't ever negotiate in determining the dream. So, I was rethinking about my dream to be an auditor. It's not "best" enough. And I remember one of my best lecturer's quote: "good is enemy of best". So, I just reproduce my dream: "I want to have my own super business: the first International-recognized of a local public accountant firm"

Hmm. Dream is free. So, why you don't just dream The Best Dream you can think...

Next. In my last semester, my Auditing Seminar lecturer is a partner! She has her own accounting firm. I really admire her. And she has a CPA. I should be better than her. I believe I can.

Okay, after I'm graduated from Perbanas, I have a chance to have training in a medium-leveled Public Accounting Firm, it's KAP HMR. My another lecturer works there. The training is only for two months, but it's very useful, although it's not quite different from what I've already learned in Auditing Laboratory subject in campus.

And, finally, we reached the final point of this writing: I worked for Mazars! This is my first work and it's an internationally accounting firm! Okay, I'll tell you about my experience at Mazars in a semi-poem writing below:

I am lucky.
I should realize that.
I am lucky for having a wonderful two-month, the most unforgettable moment ever, here.
It will not be the same anymore, I know.
But, at least, I already experienced that.

I am lucky.
I should realize that.
I have the loveliest manager here: smart, patience, and high motivated.
She gave me many chances and trust to learn many things here.
For the short two-months here, I already conducted Understanding & Walkthrough, Physical Count of Inventory, Balance Confirmation, and Substantive Test for Cash-Taxes-Prepayment-Operating Expenses- Inventory.
I will get more if I stay longer, I know.
But, if I cannot be grateful for what I already earned, I know God won’t give anymore to me.

I am lucky.
I should realize that.
I have pleasant work mates in my batch.
It’s really surprising that we can be good friends although we only have really a short time to meet in office in these two months because we are assigned to different clients.
It will be nice if we can be promoted together in this appraisal period, I know.
But I know God know which one is nicer for me and my career.

I am lucky.
I should realize that.
I’ve got nice seniors in my team here.
For the short two months, I am already assigned for three different teams in three different clients, and I am also assigned for four different Physical Inventory Count teams, and for those all I’ve got really nice seniors.
I learned many things from them.
I will get chance to be like them if I stay here.
But maybe God want me to be more than just like them.

I am lucky.
I really need to realize that, so I will not be sad.
I do not have to be sad, or even feel hurt.
I know it will not be the same anymore… but it will be better, for me, hopefully… it should be better… it must be better…
Alhamdulillah Ya Rob.

Thanks to Pak Sebastien Gautier for nicely accepting me to work here for two months.
Thanks to Ruth Mutiara, for being the best manager ever, here.
Thanks to James Kenneth Venta, for being my manager also and the training.
Thanks to Luisito Gallardo for the memorable interview and all the knowledge you share in all trainings I attended.
Thanks to Fernando Reyes, also for the memorable interview.
Thanks to Siena Rosell Cajucom and Melissa Paz Murillo for the trainings.
Thanks to Pak Tjiendra and Pak Handoko for short memorable discussion.
Thanks to Kak Anggia, Mbak Susi, Kak Layna, and Kak Edu for transferring the knowledge to me.
Thanks to David, Fahry, Elo, Agung, Karin, Icha, Andra for being nice team mates.
Thanks to Barry, Panji, and Fredy for being helpful friends in our batch.
And, finally, thanks to Rahma, Mira, Desy, Aggun, Indah (I mention your name here although we are in different batch, haha), Dila, and Diva for being really nice and unforgettable friends for me…
Thanks also for making my goodbye harder, really…

Barcelona, The Top of The List

On last 28 October, a page in facebook named Manchester United Fans made a vote: "What's Your Most Hated Football Team ?!"

Of course, the voters are those who support United and like the page. So, the result of the voting will show the most hated football team by United fans.

The result shows Barcelona on the top of the list with 65 voters. And the noisy neighbor comes in the second. I am one of the 64 voters for them.

It's not surprised because Barcelona has put us in the second position twice in last three finals in Champions League. However, unlike many fans of United, I don't hate them. I just hate them for one until six days during and after the final, but then I realize that they are good and deserve the title.

And about the noisy, everyone knows that they are now our main competitor in Premier League, by ignoring the fact that they are already our true rival since we come from same city. We always talk about which one between us is the TRUE MANCHESTER: Red or Blue.

After Barca and the noisy neighbor, Chelsea shows in the third position. Yeah, I agree with this. I really hate them, after the noisy, because they got the title by money, it is really weird someone like Abramovich wants a title but he wants get it instantly. Ckck.

Then, Liverpool is the fourth most hated club by United fans. Actually I never really hate them although I am very happy that now we are the King, not them anymore. I cannot hate them because my best friend ever really love them. Hehe.

In the fifth position, there is Arsenal. I used to hate them so much. I remember that my old United diary is full of hated words and story about them. But now, I just feel sorry for them. Besides, there are many muslims join Arsenal. So, I cannot hate them anymore. Furthermore, they are now really nice to us. They gave us a 8-2 winning this season in OT. Haha... Seriously, Thank You so much Papa Arsene (smile please, pa).

The rests of the list are Madrid, Leeds (the one which should be our no.1 enemy because of the history), AC Milan, Everton, Muenchen (seriously? I think we should thank them for the most amazing final of UCL ever in 1999), Wigan (I cannot guess the reason), Ipswich Town (Don't ask me, I have no idea), Partizan Belgrade (This must be caused by something bad in UCL), and Rosenborg (Yeah, who knows :P).

This is the complete result of the votes:

Barcelona 65
City 64
Chelsea 37
Liverpool 25
Arsenal 10
Real Madrid 6
Leeds United 3
AC Milan 1
Everton 1
Muenchen 1
Wigan 1
Ipswich Town 1
Partizan Belgrade 1
Rosenborg 1

Surprisingly, there are three voters who voted for Man United. Ckck, we have spies.

And these are some good comments about the voting:

Mohd Yusri Mohd Yunus: "man shitty and all team versus manutd"
Jimmy Labeeu: "All italy team."
Emma Johnson: "any1 thats not united! shitty city crapperpool assnal trasherton ...."
Tuhin Mufc Sen: "used to like Barca until Sergio Busquets and Mascherano happened to em' and that over-rated Messi. He's a good player, not God! X("
Mike Manutd: "I'd rather die than support chelshit or barcheatlona.!"
Richard Ford: "i don't mind leeds and arsenal they are OK. but shitty and looserfool i cant stand either of them"
Kennet Johansson: "for the moment man city,,,,nxt week its chelsea again"
Yus Cleverley: "TETANGGA"
Ben Bailey: "Man City, they have to buy there victory, WE EARN IT !!!!"
Manuel Tamay: "No one ,futbol is abuot sport. I do not ever hate any body."
Maryam Smithy: "the noisy neighbor, of course! WHY ALWAYS ME THAT IS UGLY, HAHA :D"

And UNITED Players Are Also Human…

I was hurt so badly when last week UNITED is beaten by their noisy neighbor with poor score: 6-1. It’s my worst nightmare ever T____T

Spontaneously I decide to sign my fesbuk, twitter, and YM off, ignore all the news either in the television, internet or newspaper. There is only one dominant thought in my head: I should dig a hole and burn myself there.

I asked myself thousand times: what happened to my UNITED? Why is this happened? Hello, you are really my heroes or not?

It’s really hurt when I watched the noisy neighbor score the fourth goal and I turned off the television (because I can’t watch the replay and the celebration – it’s really hurt for me T___T) but a few minutes later I turned it on again their score was already SIX. How come?

I blamed the players. Nani, Welbeck, Evans, Jones, and even their manager, Sir Alex, are all wrongs, for me.

And then I realized one thing: what a bad fan I am T____T

Supporting a team should not mean you expect them to always win and blame them if they lost in a game. Ckck. It’s really unfair!

The fans should realize that they are only the fans, not the player, or even the manager! They do not know the real feeling of LOST. The players are the ones who played the game, were very tired but still suffered the LOST. The manager is the one who made a strategy, shouted along the game, but still got LOST.

They are the ones who deserve a complaint. A very big complaint. But, to whom is the complaint? GOD? Well, if you forget, I am reminding you all: “This is life, not heaven. You cannot always get what you want.”

So, back to the story. I realized then that I should accept this result. I can’t just continue muttering: could the match be restarted from 0-0 please???

I should try imagining being in de Gea’s shoes. It’s very unimaginable to suffer SIX goals in a match. So sorry, de Gea! I hope you are strong enough to learn all the mistakes you maybe do that day.

Well, they are only human, they can also get lost in match, no matter how big the score is.

And life must go on.

Tonight, they win 1-0 from Everton. Congratulation!

But I still cannot stand to see premier league table or the list of top scorer. Huff. Yeah, you can call me a bad fan. Whatever. It’s just really hurt for me, seriously. Or maybe you can call me a coward. Yeah, whatever. I live this life not to please you, but GOD. Hoho :P

And I am still waiting any club that can get mancit down by a worse score, 10-0 will be very nice, seriously :P

I have a new dream since that night: MANCIT will suffer degradation soon, or even this season, I don’t care “how”.

And I am still shouting, in fesbuk or twitter, that UNITED is still a KING OF ENGLAND. It’s the fact, last time I checked.

And I think I know the continuity of writing written in that bald player of mancit’s t-shirt: WHY ALWAYS ME THAT IS UGLY. Ups. Haha.

GGMU, no matter what happens :*

Hello, How's life, UNITED? :)

It's very long time since my last post. Exactly, I didn't write anything for 10 months! Wow, Subhanallah... I envy so much that time in 'blog world' moves faster than time in reality. I hope you get what I mean. Haha.

So, what's up, UNITED? Well, they are fine, despite the fact that they lost back to back, from Liverpool and Chelsh*it two weeks ago.
They are fine, because they still go on in three competition, keep the chance to TREBLE alive: Premier League, FA, and Champions League. So sorry for Arsenal, hihi, the no 1 competitor in the two competitions. Well, Arsenal was already defeated in FA, they only become the burden in EPL now, hoho.

In Champions League, UNITED meets Chelsh*t in quarter final. Can't wait. Haha.

SO, keep moving on, keep the Real Red Flag flying high, my UNITED hero. You know that I can't smile without you :D

Save Our Earth

(this my writing is the 1st winner in The British Institute - TBI Writing Competition)

Imagine these conditions: dry land without any trees is everywhere, number of skin cancer cases increases, people cannot go out without wearing jacket although it is a sunny day, number of active volcano is higher than before, floods are everywhere, there is only big island left (say goodbye to many famous beautiful small islands), and there is snow in tropical countries on the night while the day is very hotter than before. Do you think all of them are only hyperbola fantasy? I do not think so. If we still do not give more attention to the earth now, they are possible to happen in the future. They are not only fantasy!

I am not scaring you all, but usually people will not start doing some action if they do not suffer the cause first. So, imagine that you can see the future, and what you see is more or less same as the conditions I told you in the beginning. It is possible, you know, because there are many evidences exist around us that you actually can find out sooner if you are more curious about the earth. The first evidence is the numerous of weird and horrible disasters. In Indonesia, some of us suffered tsunami in Aceh, terrible earthquake in Yogyakarta and Padang, and mud disaster in Sidoarjo. Moreover, there are apocalyptic hurricanes in USA, big forest fires in Australia, and terrible floods in Nepal. The next evidence is number of diseases such as malaria, cholera, and asthma that are increasing. Those diseases are influenced by the global warming. Asthma comes because if air pollution, malaria is spread by the warmer condition of world, and cholera is caused by water pollution. Furthermore, you can feel by yourself that sun is becoming hotter. At last, final evidence is the increase of extinct animal number.

It’s time to do some actions. You should not think about some hard actions like using environmentally friendly products, especially the electronic machine such as computer, refrigerator, washing machine, and dryer. Some of you maybe still cannot afford them for this moment. So, let’s start thinking about simple activities that everyone surely can do those. I’ll give you some examples of simple activities. First, stop throwing rubbish everywhere, although it’s only a candy wrapper. You also can begin to advise people that you meet in the street. Stop them from polluting the earth! However, it needs some courage from you. Then, stop using plastic as long as possible. For example, you can bring your own bag when you go shopping so you do not need the plastic bag from the shop anymore.

The next simple activity is avoiding cigarette. I know it is hard for some cigarette addicts to stop smoking instantly, but please think about the future. Furthermore, you can start taking bicycle or mass transportation instead of motorcycle or car. I do not forbid you to have a car or motorcycle. You still can have them as long as you want. I only ask you to do not use them for daily or routine activities, like for going to school, campus, or office every day. Moreover, reduce the use of paper. You can ask your teacher or lecturer whether you can print the assignment in two sides of paper. If they allow you to do it, you can tell to your classmates to do same thing. Then, the last example of simple activity is saving energy. Unplug the cable of electronic appliances whenever you stop working with them. Drive your vehicle 55 mph instead of 65 mph because it can reduce emissions.
So, you now can choose two kind of future: the bad or the good one. Do not wait until the disaster comes to you to start being green. Do it right now! Remember, we only have one world. You cannot move to another new world after break the old one.
