            The People’s Public of China, commonly known by China, is the most populate stated in the world. China is the most population of citizens in the world. There are 1.3 billion citizens in this country. It‘s located at East Asia. China is the biggest country in East Asia and the third in the world after Canada and Russian. China is famous with The Great Wall of China and Gobi Desert, too. The Great Wall is one of world wonderful and Gobi Desert is the biggest desert in Asia. As a big country with its citizens and the area, become China as one of the strongest country in the world. Different with our country that usually blames amount of the citizens as the reason Indonesia still becomes a development country. China consider for amount of the population as one of its strength. So, we can see that China is one of the biggest countries in the world.

            What are interesting of China? There many aspects those make China different with the other countries. I will explain two of them. First, the most interesting for me is about the concern of government in fighting corruption. One time, the prime minister of this country said that he prepared a hundred coffins for the corruptors. Then, he also said that one of the coffins is for him if he corrupts later. Then, he proves his said if there are officials of government corrupt, they get dead penalty. Not only dead penalty for them, but also for their family. That’s why, this policy has decrease amount of corruptor in China. I imagine if this policy is also implemented in Indonesia so the big problem in our country today, “corruption”, will be solved soon. But, I think impossible to be implemented it for this time, because freedom paradigm and behalf human right, this policy forbidden to be implemented. Why could China implement it? The reason is because China is still as a Communist Country that implement central of policy.

            The second, something that makes me interesting from China is about the economy development. Historically, China is a communist or socialist country. There isn’t freedom for the citizens and all of the regulation from the central of government. The citizens don’t have a right to say something to government, doing political activity, etc. Because the status of this country, China follow socialist system as the system of its economy. So, China’s economy is a closed economy. The government forbids making relationship business for the other country. For several years it is good for this country. But in long time, its not good. China’s Government conscious of that they can’t refuse the globalizations era. Then, they try to modify the economy system of the country. China’s still as a Socialist or Communist Country but its economy must change. It starts about ten years ago. China starts to open his country to the other in international trading. We can see, for ten years, China shows that it’s the fastest in economy progress. Even, the increase of economy growth ever to 10%. It is very amazing. Fact, today, China is one of the fastest economy growths. It is the special one of China, the government don’t close their eyes to the change of the world. Then, they can adapt the system of the country to the condition. The people know that China is a Communist Country, but its economy actually has become a liberalism economy.

            Actually, still many things that make China become an interesting country. But, because the limited of time and this paper. I just explain about two things of China that makes this country different with the other countries.

 

Indonesia is a country that rich in natural and human resources in terms of quantity. Geographically, Indonesia is located in a strategic region, flanked by two continents and two oceans. Not only that, in terms of weather and climate of Indonesia is very advantageous position than other countries, located on the equator which has a tropical climate and there are only two seasons namely the rainy and dry seasons. That’s why, there are so many varieties of flora and fauna in Indonesia. This conditions make many people that visited Indonesia said that Indonesia is a paradise in the world. Everything can live and growth here.

Unfortunately, although Indonesia has anything, but it can’t make Indonesia become a wealth country. There are still many unemployment, more of 30% Indonesian citizens are poverty, so many officials government are corrupt, and the other many problems.

We must change this condition. But, the question is how? I have some solutions to improve Indonesia, become a growth country.

First, start change with our educational system. I think there is something wrong with our educational system. It doesn’t create smart students but just create memorizing student. The system make student to study hard because mark, not to get the knowledge. So, the solutions are change students paradigm about study. They conscious of  that study hard to get knowledge. Then, change the system. One of the ways is omitting the National Test (UN).

The second, create a justice by up hold the rule of law. Today, we still see unfair in this country. Law still takes side to rich people or to the official government. The poor man that steal a banana will get punish bigger than the official government that corrupt country’s money until billions.

The third is fighting corruption seriously. Corruption is still the biggest problem in our country. So, the government should be fighting it totally. I think our country can adopt from China about how its government fighting corruption. They make policy to give dead penalty to the corruptor. If it is implemented, so it will make the people very afraid to corrupt.

The last, my solution for a better future of Indonesia is about spiritual mentality. We see that the character of Indonesian was decreased. I think it is because the decreasing of religiosity of Indonesian people. If the citizens bring nearer to God, it will influence their attitude and character. This condition will decrease amount of criminality and corruption, too. Beside that, as a Godless creature, we must believe that God will help the people that praying to him. I think one of reasons why our condition still like what we feel today, because we are far from God that make we are also far from God help. So, the main point of this last solution is become nearer to God, conscious our mortal sin, repent and forswear, more often praying to get God’s Love.

Those are several my opinions for better Indonesia future. There isn’t impossible, we can change Indonesia! Merdeka!

Hello everybody. Let me tell to you about my family. My family is a big family. There are six people in my family, my father, my mother, my sister, two my brothers, and me.

I started my status as student at UGM in 2007. I was born on September 23rd 1988, in my town, Payakumbuh City, West Sumatera Provinces. Before study at university, I was student at SMA 1 Padangpanjang, a very cold city in West Sumatera, fifty kilometers from my town. When at SMA, I live at SMA’s dormitory, so I have separated from my parents since study at SMA. Then, my junior school is MTsN Payakumbuh. It’s located four kilometers from my house. In this school I get much experience about how to organize organization, because I became vice chairman of OSIS and Pratama (chairman of scout at this school). Beside get much new knowledge and experiences at this beautiful school, I learned about love, too. For the first time, I felt in love with a beautiful girl. Then we had special relationship until three years. There isn’t the best story than love story at junior high schoolJ. Unfortunately, today, she has married and has two children. Forget the last time and start to stare the future. Now, I’m in the last semester at my college, finishing my last project and graduated my study soon.

I think it’s enough about me for this time, next I will tell about the members of my family.

My father is a good daddy. His name is Naviardham. He was born on August 11th 1955 and he is a civil servant. So, several years to go he will be pension. I hope I will have become rich man, so I can make him happy in his old age.  My father graduated his study at Imam Bonjol Islamic Institute. That’s why, beside become a civil servant he also give his knowledge about islam to people by become a Islamic missionary or in my town called “buya” or “ustadz” in bahasa. He also join to a islamic organization like Muhammadyah, and today he is a chairman of Muhammadyah at branch level in Payakumbuh. My father is a patient people, so I learn how to become a patient people from him. Then, my mother name is Turesmi. She is a teacher of a junior high school in my town. She is 54th years old, was born two years after my dad. My mom is very good chef, especially for padang’s food. I think she is the best for making rendang in West Sumatera. Recently, my mom often phones me, ask about my last project. Indirectly, ask me in order graduated my study. Hmm, I gotta push myself hard.

Next, I will tell you about my brother and my sister. I have two brothers and one sister. I’m the third child in my family. The first brother is working at a Japan’s company in Jakarta. His name is Ryan Novianto He was born on September 21st 1983. He graduated his study three years ago from Machine Engineering Department, ITS. He is still single.  Sometimes, if my money is almost exhausted, I will phone him. After that, I got solution for my problemJ. Another brother is also work in Jakarta. His boarding house is near from the first brother. His name is Rizki Hidayat. He was born a years after the first brother, on November 14th 1984. He works at Indofood Company. Two years ago, he was a student at Chemical Engineering Department of UGM. Different with me, he is very handsome boy. That’s why, when he was still a student, he was ones of play boy in his faculty. But, now I hope he was “insyaf” and become a trusty man. Last, my younger sister’s name is Revina Putri Utami. She was born on May 31st 1996. She is a student at Senior High School in my town. She is in the first grade now. Because the youngest in my family, she is a spoiled girl. If she grows up later, she wants to be a doctor. I hope she won’t change her whishes. So, if there is someone in family is sick later, we will get free treatment from her.

Actually, I have two grandparents, too. But, two of them have passed away and another grandpa isn’t live with us. I also have many uncles, aunts, cousins, and my nephews. Actually, I want tell you about them. Unfortunately, this paper is limited.

OK, that’s all about me and my family. Thank you very much for your attention.
