Company Golf Tournament

Last Friday, my company held an annual golf tournament. Being new and not knowing anyone yet, I decided to join in, hoping to know more people during this time. Of course, I warned the coordinator that I never stepped in a golf course, so rules etc were nonexistent as far as I was concerned. Heck, I only knew golf from reading Dan Doh!!

On the tournament day, it was cloudy in the morning. I started to regret my registration. Also, I realized that playing on a golf course meant I had to walk around in "forest" for hours. I hated exercises (still do). What on earth was I thinking when I registered? Hhhh..

We all went to work in the morning, and at about 11 am, we headed to the golf course for lunch before the game. My mood got better after that. The sky cleared. I found out that some of my colleagues didn't know golf either. And I knew one of my teammates (phew!).

After trying it out, golf turned out to be pretty fun. Okay, it was fun only when I hit the ball - which didn't happen very often - but the anticipation that "the next hit might be it" kept me motivated. In addition, the game was played a bit differently than usual. There were games at some of the holes. At hole 9, it was marshmallows golf (who could hit it the furthest among all participants). There was a hockey net at hole 13. If we could hit the golf ball through it, we could advance 40 yards ahead right away. Also, there was poker games, where we had to pick cards from different people from several places. These card holders, in turn, provided games we needed to play in order to get the cards. Incidentally, our team managed to collect a club flush. Unfortunately, some other team got a straight flush, so we lost the poker game.

BUT, we did win the whole tournament. Yup, I was surprised myself. I knew that at some point, we got -6, and we went +2 at hole 18. But we missed the last 2 holes (time out). I heard that some team got -9, and there were teams who completed the whole course. So I didn't expect to win. But win, we did! Although it was mostly my teammate's effort, as a team member, I was very proud of the win. Ehem.. and I did managed a birdie (I did better on the green than trying to get to the green).

For the prize, each of us got one movie pass, and our names would be engraved on the Golf Trophy.

Hahaha.. I still can't believe it. But wasn't it a good start for an amateur like me?

Guides to Virtual Choir

Dalam rangka pandemi ini, paduan suara tidak dapat berlatih bersama, apalagi melayani bersama. Karena itu, maka mulailah inisiatif untuk mengadakan paduan suara online, untuk pelayanan.  Agar hasilnya bisa optimal, anggota paduan suara perlu mengingat, bahwa mereka bernyanyi bukan sebagai solois, tapi sebagai bagian dari paduan suara yang besar. Jadi meskipun saat rekaman, kadang merasa kurang sempurna, selama anggota paduan suara memberikan yang terbaik (bukan asal-asalan yah), saya percaya Tuhan memberkati pelayanan kita semua. Nah, tentu saja ada beberapa tips yang bisa kita ikuti, supaya hasil rekaman bisa bagus dan maksimal. Contohnya: rekaman memakai tripod dalam ruangan yang pencahayaan cukup dan tidak membelakangi matahari/sumber cahaya adalah beberapa cara yang bisa kita pakai untuk menaikkan kualitas video kita. Berikut ini adalah guidelines / tips untuk merekam video untuk paduan suara online, yang aku buat untuk PS Agape. Semoga bisa membantu. Note: Panduan ini

Doppelganger

When I went back home in 2002, it was time for the placement announcement for first trimester for elementary students. My little brother was in elementary school, and so I took my mom's place and went with him to take his exam result back. It was nostalgic. My teachers were still teaching (people do not switch career back home). Some of my friends took up teaching. The classroom did not change much. Children were running everywhere and playing the games I used to play. It felt like I was thrown back a decade or two. Then it was time for the general assembly. Every students and teachers were gathered in a big room for placement announcement. My school have a tradition of announcing the first, second, and third placement for each class in front of a general assembly. I can't remember what my little bro's placement were. But the thing that surprised me was during the announcement for 2nd grade placements. The third place was won by a person with the exact same first name a
