Deal or No Deal?

This morning robotics lecturer announced the temporary grade of students...the A-er (they who got grade-A) don't have to attend the final test, C-er must, while for B-er it's optional...but if they failed in this final test, there is still possibility for their grade move to C. The B-er is quite many, about twice than total of A-er and B-er, but it seems that the proclivity from B-er is not attending final test. Among 20 B-ers, there are only 3 persons (including me) who seemed interested. Uhhh confuse...this 3 people were OK to take the final test but they hadn't studied hard for this. The lecturer ridiculed us, then offered, "if you just answer 75% correctly from these questions, your grade will raise directly". Deal or no deal?

Rika1: "Come on, Rika! Maybe the exam is easy"
Rika2: "How if difficult?"

(Suddenly turned to the lecturer) Rika : May I see the questions first, Sir?"
Lecturer: "Of course not!"

(Rika sat back and thinking...)
Rika1: "You know, he (the lecturer) is a simple person, he doesn't make many complicated questions"
Rika2: "Yeah, usually only 2 questions, but quite difficult"

Rika1: "Actually they were not difficult, you just didn't study"
Rika2: "Uh-huh! Now my brain is also empty"

Rika1: "There are still 15 minutes to go, you can read the slides"
(Rika2 curled her lips) Rika2: "15 minutes moyang lo!"
Rika1: "Moyang lo also dong?"
(...mulai ga penting...)

Rika1: "I hardly believe you give up before you fight"
(Rika sat steadily) Rika2: "You got me, man!"
Rika1: "Aja aja fighting!"

So finally I decided to take the exam, followed by others 2 A-fighters. Obviously the questions are.......not bad! Two questions as I thought before, but it seems only 50% I answered correctly. I hopes the lecturer touched emotionally with the fighting of those 8 persons (only 8 persons decided to attend the final exam, there are also some C-ers who didn't want to take it), so he directly raise their grade, Ameen! Or maybe I could get extra points for answering the questions in english (that was the rule...canggih juga tu dosen!)

The most important thing is you have been fight, Rik! With 50% corrects, your grade won't be move down to C. Hhhh uas perbaikan yang aneh, why is the announcement of who got A/B/C exactly on the final test day??! But this is my last final exam I (hope) had in ITB, yihuu...


  1. Gyahaha, akhirnya ujian juga Rik, sampe gabisa ikut karokean. Semoga bisa naik jd A Rik. Aja aja fighting!

Jeju Island in 3 Days

Jeju Island, the Hawaii of Korea, where couples usually go for honeymoon, and the place of many UNESCO Nature Heritage sites, is really beautiful and romantic. Some people say we need to spend at least 1 week to explore and experience the most of this island, but in my opinion 3 days are enough. Trust me, many places in Jeju only look good in advertisement, they're good at selling it. There are no interesting places in the North and West part of Jeju Island, so you can focus on East and South. East and South parts are amazingly naturally beautiful! Here's the itinerary I recommend.

Day-1: East of Jeju Island

Manjanggul / Manjang Cave
Spending time: 30-45 minutes
Hallasan, located in the middle of Jeju Island is the only volcanic mountain in Korea. It created several small volcanic mountains throughout Jeju Island, called Oreum in Korean. One of the biggest Oreum is Geomun Oreum, famous with its large lava tube system and designated as a UNESCO Natural Heritage site. It has few l…

Review: Homestay Cahaya Sikunir Dieng

Mencari penginapan di Dieng itu susah-susah gampang. Disana tidak ada hotel, adanya penginapan rumahan atau homestay. Beberapa turis kadang menginap di kota Wonosobo, sekitar sejam dari Dieng, demi mendapat penginapan yang bagus. Pilihan di travel apps hanya sedikit dan kurang cocok. Setelah browsing sana-sini, terutama baca review blog orang, saya hubungi beberapa homestay di Dieng baik lewat telpon maupun Whatsapp. Saat kami sudah mulai road trip Jawa Tengah tanggal 12 Desember, kami masih belum tau mau menginap dimana di Dieng tanggal 17 Desember nya. Karena waktu itu kami belum fix juga sih mau berapa malam di Dieng, 1 atau 2 malam? Kalau 2 malam, keduanya di homestay yang sama atau ganti homestay?

Akhirnya tanggal 16 Desember, sehari sebelum ke Dieng (saat itu kami di Solo), kami memutuskan untuk menginap 2 malam di Dieng. Malam pertama di Homestay Cahaya Sikunir, karena keesokan subuh nya mau sok-sokan melihat sunrise di Bukit Sikunir, dan malam kedua di Homestay Serayu. Untuk

Transportation in Jeju Island

These are some remarks regarding public transportation in Jeju.
Buses in Jeju Island accept Seoul's t-money card. You can buy and top-up it in convenience store, like GS25 and Family Mart.City buses normally charge 1000won for cash, or 950won for t-money card. If you pay by card, tap it to the machine when you aboard and when you alight. If you transit between 2 buses during a certain times, fee for the next bus can be 0won, or free.Intercity buses vary depends on the distance, usually between 1000-3000won. There's no different fee paying with cash or card. When you aboard the bus, tell the driver about your destination, he will tell you how much it is, and you have to pay there directly. If you pay by card, no need to tap it again when you get off.There are 2 bus terminals in Seogwipo city. The main bus terminal is in the south-east of downtown, near the Jeongbang Waterfall, which is also the old one. The second one is to the right of the E-mart in front of the World Cup Stad…
