English for SMILE

A SMILE can change the world. That is what we did on Saturday (12/03). In conjunction with SMILE of Study (SOS), we help them to teach 35 children in need. SOS is a group of English literature students with intention to spread their skill and knowledge to children in Tanjung Duren area. It was 10.30 and the fun learning began led by Rtr. Lucky. Those children sing, dance, and laugh along with SOS team and Rtr. PE. Oke, Rtr. Ari, Rtr. Nigem, Rtr. Ozzy (RAC Surabaya),  Rtr. Andi Fachri (RAC Jogja Malioboro) and potential member, Gugun. The story telling follows next by Rtr. Idfi while Rtn. Meinar, from our sponsor Rotary Club Jakarta, showering blitz, taking our best close up or zoom out for best pics. We finally close the session at 14.30 by handing the children milk and nutritious snack to munch. It was definitely not our last project with SOS.

We also congratulate to the 7 youngsters with an extraordinary achievements whom was chosen on “20 under 20” program.

MEET AND GREET LEBANESE AMBASSADOR

Sabtu, 5 Februari 2011, diadakan Joint Meeting RAC Jakarta Area yang sangat spesial. Kenapa? Karena kali ini RAC Jakarta Area menyelenggarakan acara “Meet & Greet Lebanese Ambassador”.

Dari RAC Semanggi dihadiri oleh VP Oke Hastiawan, Rtr. Brillianti RH dan Rtr. IPP Leo Mokodompit. Acara diawali dengan opening dari PO dan MC. Kemudian speech dari DRR Indra Diwangkara dan IPP. Leo Mokodompit.

Speech by Mr Victor Zmeter (Lebanese Ambassador) dilanjutkan dengan sesi tanya jawab berkisar tentang bagaimana Tourism di Lebanon berkaitan dengan konflik yang sampai saat ini terjadi disana. Juga mengenai biaya pendidikan di lebanon yang tergolong sangat mahal. Bagaimana korelasi antara umat Kristiani, Muslim Sunni dan Muslim Syria di Libanon? Dari beberapa penjelasan beliau, dalam sisi tourism, Libanon sudah terbuka untuk pengaruh-pengaruh dari negara2 barat dan pula konflik yang terjadi merupakan bagian dari iran bukan keseluruhan lebanon itu sendiri sehingga banyak yang bisa didapat dan ditawarkan untuk menarik wisatawan tetap berkunjung tanpa merasa khawatir/risau. Ekonomi lebanon saat ini sangat kuat, karena perbankan-nya. Untuk biaya pendidikan sampai saat ini memang masih tergolong mahal, namun sebagian terbantu oleh pemerintah dan bantuan dari negara America dan Organisasi2 luar lainnya.

Antara umat beragama, dapat hidup saling beriringan. Untuk Muslim Sunni merupakan Islam dari Arab Saudi, dll.Sedangkan Syria adalah banyak dari Iran penganut saat pemerintahan Rafik Hariri dan saat ini tetap diperjuangkan oleh anak-nya Saad Hariri.

Sesi pertanyaan pertama oleh 3 penanya dan 3 lagi disesi berikutnya, ditambah 1 penanya pada akhir sesi sebelum coffee break. Sebelum berlanjut ke coffee break, adalah waktu untuk foto session. Foto bersama Mr. Victor untuk masing-masing Club yang hadir.

Saat coffee break adalah saat bercengkrama dengan Mr Victor, para Rtr bertanya secara langsung seputar Lebanon dan Indonesia sebelum tepat pukul 3.30pm beliau meninggalkan lokasi meeting.

Setelah coffee break adalah member floor, dimana masing-masing dari 7 Club mempresentasikan project2 yang sedang dan akan berlangsung. Hanya Club Cosmopolitan yang ijin pulang terlebih dahulu karena bertepatan juga dengan weekly meeting Club Cosmo yang dilaksanakan setiap hari sabtu.

Keseluruhan event ditutup dengan foto bersama semua Rotaractors yang hadir including guest. Sekitar pukul 5pm acara telah selesai.

3T of The Week : Ladies Singer

3T kali ini bertema Ladies Singer. Dan tidak seperti biasanya, #thxrotaract kali ini terdiri lebih dari satu orang. Mau Tauuuu, siapa sih mereka???

Mereka adalah :
1. Duo Maia : Bunda Maia dan Meychan
2. Vocalist group band Kotak : Tantri
3. Vocalist group band Geisha : Momo

Mereka kami pilih karena lagu – lagu mereka cukup ngehitssss di telinga para pendengar musik Indonesia. Duo Maia dengan lirik dan gaya pakaian mereka yang centil, Tantri “kotak” dengan gaya genre pop rock yang maskulin. Dan terakhir Momo “Geisha” yang terkenal dengan Japanese style-nya yang melambungkan Band Geisha ini ke kancah industri musik Indonesia.

Nantikan 3T selanjutnya dengan tema yang lebih oke dan lebih ngehits 🙂

Kalau dari teman – teman mau request, boleh loh, bisa kirim ke Facebook Rotaract Semanggi Jakarta atau di twitter kami @racsemanggi

kami tunggu requestnya ^_^
