Merdeka Indonesia & Congratulations Indonesians !!
August 17, 2009
What a beautiful day… A day of celebration, a day of get-together, a day to spend with the family, a day to appreciate independence.
Ask any Indonesian and they’ll tell you that they love Indonesia deeply. But look at the highways at the “gerbang tol” and you’ll see all the little pieces of paper (karcis tol) thrown everywhere… Love Indonesia, but still throw paper everywhere to dirty the streets of Indonesia ? This “love Indonesia” behaviour is committed by lowly-eduated bus drivers as well as “rich and successful” Indonesians driving luxurious cars !
Along the normal streets, you’ll frequently see “Aqua” bottles thrown our of car windows – from angkots to Alphards…
So Indonesians, on the day that you declare your loyalty and love for Indonesia, PROVE it with your ACTION !! Keep Indonesia clean… Keep the karcis tol, Aqua bottles and everything else INSIDE your car, not all over the streets of Indonesia.
Dirgahayu Indonesia !
