What requirements needed for travelling on / after this Pandemic Corona Virus?

It’s already May 2020, and almost June 2020 and the corona virus still didn’t show any reduction. I won’t talk about this corona virus, because I’m not a doctor, and I’m not a scientist so I don’t want to talk about false news.

Here, I want to talk about travelling on / after Pandemic Corona Virus.

As far as I knows, some country will open their domestic route soon. The economic situation is on the line in this situation and seems like Corona Virus still didn’t show any reduction. So some country decided to go with the flow while protecting people from Corona Virus. A lot of health measuring is a requirements to do all basic life.

From what I see, nowadays if you wants to travel on domestic route in Indonesia especially, you have to provide some documents and doing some screening test in the airport. Especially, when we will celebrate Eid-Al Fitr Season in 24th-25th May 2020.

Still no one allowed to go back home to celebrate, but the flight route is open for those who needed to do some business or for health care.

You have to show the statement why you want to travel, and health certificate, then arrive at Airport at least 4 hours before departure to passed the screening test by doctor.

Different airline has different requirements, but at the airport it’s all the same. You have to wear mask, bring your own hand sanitizer and wet tissue, and take care your ownself.

Here’s I want to try to inform some Indonesian Airlines requirements for travelling in Pandemic Corona Virus 2019.

Stay tuned for updates…

Do you have favourite idols?

In this world, there’s a lot of occupation. And one of them is actress / actor / singer. And as actress / actor / singer, there are many people idolize them. And they are a big influencer to the world.

For me, an idol is someone who give courage, spirit and influence. I also like how they work hard to achieve what they want to do. If you love a drama or movie, that means the idols is very succeed to bring the character, even an antagonist too. It gives me motivation to work hard too.

Starting around February 2020, because of Corona Virus, I have stay at home more, and my job is totally got the impact. And I only able to see television, and internet. That time, China is the first country that has epidemic corona virus and Wuhan is lockdown. Then some artists gathered to sing a song to give Wuhan and whole China a courage.

I like this kind of song, that give courage to each other, and give others a warm heart. In this MV, I recognize some of idols such as Jacky Chen 成龍, Huang Xiao Ming 黃曉明, Wang Lee Hom 王力宏. But the most attractive one is Xiao Zhan 肖战 (born in 1991).

Xiao Zhan 肖战

It’s been a long time for me to follow China Idols, so it’s kind of flashback for me.

Actually, I have known idols from when I’m in high school. That time, western idols is the famous one, and I happen to like Backstreet Boys (debut in 1993).

I like their song: As long as you love me, I want it that way, etc. There’s many nice songs from other western idols too, such as Boyzone, Westlife.

Then in University, I have known many of Taiwan Idols, such as Fahrenheit, SHE, 5566, Cindy Wang, Angela Zhang, etc. And I often looking for c-drama series. Especially when I went to China to study Chinese. My favourite that time is Fahrenheit 飞轮海 (debut in 2005).

Until 2012, suddenly, my idol point of view change to South Korea, 2PM (debut in 2008). From that time, I always looking for South Korean idols news. Even there’s language problem, but I think, it makes me to start learn Korean. And also, from that time until now, I have been in South Korea 5 times already XD.

I’m not a fans that always chasing the stars. Even I have been already 5 times in South Korea, but I never once to accidentaly looking for the stars or chasing them. I have never meet them XD. I went to South Korea is purely for travelling and sometimes bring private group, even I have went to SM Entertainment and JYP Entertainment company, but only for travelling, go to Soul Cup Cafe, and take a picture from the front. It’s not that I didn’t want to chasing stars, but it’s not my personality to do that. I’m more into silently give support to them. Because seeing them happy, will make me happy too.

Then I also a fans of GOT7 (debut in 2014). After some of 2PM has to go to military service, I start to looking for GOT7. Seeing them really make life feel fresh.

And now we are back to Xiao Zhan 肖战 (active from 2015, debut in 2016 with X Nine). At first seeing him I remember Ahn Hyo Seop, an South Korean actor who play in Dr Kim Romance 2. That time, I also finished watch k-drama seried Dr Kim Romance 2. And I really love this drama.

From that 坚信爱会赢 Jian Xin Ai Hui Ying MV, I start to search anything about Xiao Zhan 肖战. I found he starring in drama series The Untamed 陈情令 Chen Qing Ling (2019) and I fall in love with this drama too. From then, I start to follow Xiao Zhan 肖战 and Wang Yi Bo 王一博 (debut in 2014 with UNIQ) too.

He is also starring in movie The Jade Dynasty 诛仙 zhu xian (2019) and drama series Superstar Academy 超星星学园 chao xing xing xue yuan (2016). He is also play as supporting actor in Joy Of Life 庆余年 qing yu nian (2019) and sing one of the soundtrack 余年 Yu Nian.

I start to play Weibo again, and review my Chinese. It’s really been a long time I didn’t read Chinese Articles. So it’s time to improve my Chinese again.

Xiao Zhan 肖战

He just release an single 光点 guang dian (Light Spot) on 25th April 2020, and within 12 hours, the single sold 8 million copies in QQ music and only within 4 days, for overall sales the single’s sales is broken through 100.000.000 Yuan which make the best seller single in China. This songs is about spreading love and warm to the world as well as pure and sincere. (wikipedia Guang Dian) — translations by me

Actually, I have many favourite idols, but sometimes it went with the flow. And those who I mention above is longer. I like everyone and will always expected their works, even people who is around me. And I always prefer to be silent fans.

As an idols, there’s fans, antis, and also there’s sasaeng. This is a common things. Just like in the common life, you have friends, someone who hate you and also who obsessed with you. It’s just that, we are different from Idol. Each step that idols doing, the rumour will always be there. Because they are one of the biggest influencer in the world. If we as common people who doing something, I think no one will care haha..

I know that no one perfect, Idols too. They may be lack in some matters. Because we are all human. But let’s only memorize the good things, and left behind the bad things. So this world will have more positive energy.

So, who is your favourite idols?

我的粉丝,我觉得首先你们要过好自己的生活,

然后你们才会有你们的闲余的生活,

来喜欢你,追求你喜欢的明星 —— 肖战

My Fans, I think all of you have to life your own life first,

then you will have spare time to like and chasing your idols — Xiao Zhan

How to live inside the Social Media

Social Media: Friendster, Facebook, Instagram, Weibo, Twitter, and many many more.. Nowadays, we live in a small world, which could comunicated and keep update about our daily life, and it’s called Social Media.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 001.jpg

At first, we saw something magic, something that can easily connect us to daily life, which we can easily keep in touch with someone far away.

But recently, I saw that social media is not a place to keep in touch anymore but to spread malicious comment, and even spread rumour and fake news / hoax. And I am really sad about this.

Especially during 2020 when Corona Virus Disease 2019 spread in the world.

A lot of hoax / fake news, fulfiling the social media especially whatsapp. And makes many people afraid and has negative stigma without knowing which is right and which is wrong.

When Corona begin to appear in this world, I begin to sorting which news is fake and which is right. Because, some people didn’t know how to looking for the fact and just believe for what they got, and it’s dangerous. Really… So I try to help them to give clarification about it.

In this pandemi global, the most things that we could do is helping others to give positive vibe. And make negative vibe be less and less more.. People always easily to have negative stigma over something. I remember when the corona spread in my country for the first time, many people sunbathing at 10 o’clock, and drink some ginger, temulawak, etc.

But now, most of them has already forgot about this. See, they just trigerred at first, but then they forgot about it slowly.

I also see some malicious comment in some social media, not only for stars or important people, but also for ordinary people. You know, it’s very easy to say some malicious comment, the hard things is how to responsible about what you said.

As a traveller, I have receive some bad comments, and critics too. And at first, I got a headache and stress over it. But, someone said to me, why did you listen to them? As long as you are not like what they said, ignore them. This is your life and not them. If they want to comment, it’s their business.

And I think this is very true. Why we wants to satisfied others with their comment, they are they, and I am me.

I’m sure as long as you won’t respond to it, then they will be gone along with the time. It just a matter of time.

There’s a chinese proverb / 成语:

半瓶水响叮当
A Half-filled bottle makes noise, while a full bottle makes none

People are very limited in their vision and not aware of what is happening around them or to the subjects that they are so opinionated about are very loud. They stand out. They make sure they are heard. They will not rest until you believe that their opinion is right. It is like a half-filled bottle make noise.

A half-filled bottle equals someone who just doesn’t have a lot of information and is very limited in their perception and awareness. A full bottle equals someone who has a lot of information and can see situations from all perspectives and come to a reasonable conclusion because of it.

The people who are working on building their knowledge, expanding their awareness, and growing in a positive way, don’t have time to shout out their opinions from the rooftop. They are busy trying to make their life and the world a better place. Credit

And my opinion, if you wants to stand in social media without getting hurt, try to ignore those fake news and malicious comment. They are not worth to us. And choose the criticize wisely, not all criticize suitable our life, just ignore it if you think it’s didn’t suitable you, and receive it with grace if you think it could make you have a better life without changing your original.

If you responds to those fake news and malicious comment, then those who spread it will be very happy, because you got the bait. What for? It won’t give us any profit, and we will feel awful, and this could affect those who beside us (family and friends).

So, don’t respond to them. Live your life like what you wants.

Time is moving. We can’t stop here just to thinking all in the past. We have to move on, let the past be our base, to do the best today, for the better future. 一起加油!!

Everything happens for a reason and We can make it if we are together….
