Becoming A Star: The Spirit of 2006

In the first quarter of 2006, my company held an Employee Dinner. Not like other events that my company held almost each year, this time held in Jakarta. Before this, it usually held outside the J-town.

The event took place in Assembly Hall JCC on Saturday February 25th 2006 from 18:00 till 23:00.

This year event has a theme “Becoming a Star: The Spirit of 2006. The theme “Becoming a Star” was chosen because everybody who attends tonight should feel like a star.

There were some prizes to win and a lot of door prizes. To win a prize you should wear movie character costumes.

Not all employees wearing costumes. The ones that have a good appearance with the costumes they wear will get a prize. There was three categories will be announce to get prizes. First category was individual, second was a couple, and third was a group who wears great and has good appearance.

I arrived at assembly hall about 20:00 o’clock that was because first I have to go to my friend‘s wedding receptions at Masjid MPR/DPR RI.

When I arrived there was COPI Dancer performed on the stage. There will be many singers and band will perform in this event. The singers are Dewi Sandra and Ike Nurjanah and for the band is ADA Band! For the MC’s there was a Nico Siahaan and Ivy Batuta.

In the assembly hall each employee can sit on round table like in a restaurant in a hotel. There was so many kind of food from Indonesian traditional food like soto and International food like steak.

Before get inside the assembly hall, all have to registrant in the front desk. There was a gate with banner becoming a star attached to it before going to front desk. After front desk they will be fortune teller kiosk. You may ask about your romance, lucky and so on. There also a photo booth. All employee may get they photograph with becoming a star banner as a background by talented photographer.

There were other both besides those two which was a tattoo booth. Yes a tattoo both. But not tattoo that use a needle. This tattoo is not a permanent one. There is only a picture that was drew by a tattoo artist using special ink, that will last on your skin for about 30 days.

Now back to the assembly hall. In the assembly hall there is a big stage for about 30 x 15 meters with full of music instruments. In the left and right of the stage there was a big screen. And in the back corner there were two television installed. All big screen and the television broadcast all that happened on the stage.

Delayed Flight: Matak to Jakarta

On Saturday February 18, 2006 was the crew change day. After morning meeting around seven o'clock, like ordinary crew change day I prepared my baggage. Usually I fill my bag with one pair clothes. The clothes is for the preparation if just in case a bad weather in the middle of journey to Jakarta and the flight have to have diverted to other destination and have to stay one night there.

After half hour passed preparing my bag, I went to helicopter lounge to weight my self and my baggage. I weight 138 lbs (usually 134 lbs) and my baggage weight 10 lbs. Then I labeled my baggage like ordinary baggage label that can be found in each airport.

After that I worked on my report for my superior and my back to back. There quite a lot of work this trip but it is OK I can handle it very wellJ.

It was nine o’clock when I have finished my reports. “Hmm it’s time to get a coffee break”, I said to my self. Then I go to galley to take some bread.

When waiting for helicopter arrival, I played Play Station 2 with my friends. Not take so long I had to attend safety briefing before aboard to helicopter. Then we waited for the helicopter arrives.

It was almost ten thirty when I and the others take of for Matak Island. It took half hour to reach Matak.

After flew for half hour we arrived at Matak Island and all passenger went to arrival lounge and waited for they baggage offload from the helicopter.

When we got our baggage then I and the others go to security to get the baggage checked. After that I went to check in counter. In the check in counter I had been told that the flight would be change to around two o’clock and I and the rest had been asked to take lunch in the canteen first.

Ordinary when we arrived at Matak Island at eleven it will not take so long after we check in, all passengers who will be going back to Jakarta will be asked to board the plane. I asked to the dispatcher why the flight schedule has been changed; he told that we were waiting for passenger from the Rig.

After took lunch and finished noon prayer, I and my friends backed to waiting room for boarding.

It was two pm when we boarding and the plane took off around two twenty pm.
