I believe many of you knew with the quote from Sir Richard Branson: If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later! Somehow this quote is very encouraged people that worry about the related future or someone who afraid to leave the comfort zone. But since the future is something that we cannot predict, there is only one way related to the opportunity; just take it or just leave it. There is no try in between. Do or Do not, there is no try (Master Yoda).
This special gift was created for special people, his name is Freddy Sutanto. He was an engineer and the man behind the success of Philips CityTouch application in Jakarta, that decide to resign at the end of March 2018. So, let say this was a late post about the artwork.
This gift is special for me, because not only made within 2 nights but also dedicated to people that I (and also other Philips Lighting Indonesia employees) respect. The decision to make this gift came when I heard the news that he will visit Indonesia on May 24-25 on Tuesday. Still, don’t know what kind of gift that will create. Finally, got the idea on Wednesday afternoon and start to make the sketch on Wednesday night after iftar & tarawih and start to cut the paper & apply paint on Thursday night. Rushing with time because, on Friday (May 25, 2018), we will have Town Hall Meeting at the office, including farewell with Mr. Murali Sivaraman.
For some people, car ownership is a symbol. Not only for men, but also for women. A car is the symbol of their achievement and status. A car also reflection about what you are.

It short story that connected people, life, and car.
I am honored and excited. Those were the feeling when I saw there are so many amazing photographs and videos on social media displaying the project that I have involved with and our solutions take the important role and become the reason why they take a photo or video. On Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Facebook and also on conventional media (newspaper, television), you will easily find those images. I am talking about the result of the renovation of Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia.
There is always a first time, for everything. The mixed feeling will fill our mind and our heart related to the journey through that first time moment. We may feel nervous, excited, worried, afraid, happy and so on. Including with the story that I want to share you now. The big themes are “for the first time”. It’s the first time for me visit Tanjung Pinang, the capital of Bintan Island to install and activated the first ActiveSite solution for Indonesia market.
Philips Lighting Indonesia as a multinational company has the official batik shirt that represents the company with batik Indonesia pattern, with two color option, white and purple. As the employee, I am proudly wearing this batik shirt, especially when business trip abroad. The response from my colleagues is amazing. Most of them love the batik and ask how to have or buy that Philips batik shirt. But then, I ask myself, what is after batik shirt?

Just like mentioned on its cover, this book will tell us a lot about the science of lighting. A guide for people who want to know more and understand more about lighting. It will tell us about light and radiation, how is light produced, how is light directed and screened, about quantities of light and the unit, about light and vision, light with color, about light and health, about lighting quality. The way of this book tell us about the content is easy to follow and understand.
