A Corner of Qingdao City
Qingdao is a city placed in Shandong province. This city has a popular beer called Tsingtao (I didn't drink alcohol, so I can't imagine the taste).  

A long time ago, Germany had colonized this city. Some corners of the city look to have European-style architectural design.

This photo is representative of how beautiful Qingdao is:

I have some photos collection of Qingdao City. Maybe I will share other photos, but not in this post.

Marhaban ya Ramadan
Ramadan is coming.
Ramadan is a very special event for Muslims, which has many kindness, and happiness. I have never thought this Ramadan will be at my home. I think I will complete this Ramadan in Qingdao. But it doesn’t matter. The important thing is I can get more quality time with every people in my home country. Maybe after I back to Qingdao, I will not back to my country until my study has finished.

Anyway, this Ramadan will be different than the previous year. Yeah, the situation of epidemic still growing up and people must stay at their home. Our government told us to pray at home and minimize activity that can be assembled by a lot of people. It’s okay, we must conduct the government said to make this situation better. Staying at home during Ramadan is not bad if we have something to do. Be productive even we feel hungry and lazy maybe too hard. But we must have something to do.   

I wonder how Muslims of Qingdao celebrate the Ramadan. Do they have Ramadan cultures like takjil or food? This big question has stayed in my mind when I see this photo from my phone:

Together against COVID-19
This COVID-19 has become more serious in my country. For the latest update, around 7.000 people were infected by this virus. Based on this situation, our government makes some policies to protect the citizens. Indonesian was familiar with “gotong royong” culture. That gotong royong means every people will fight this situation together. We will forget all of the differences (religion, status, gender, culture, etc) to punch this epidemic together. Many communities or public figures make donations to collect money, food, mask, hazmat, or anything which has an impact to minimize the disadvantages of COVID-19. 

I think I am lucky to be an alumnus of HIMABES UGM (Himpunan Mahasiswa Brebes Universitas Gadjah Mada). HIMABES UGM is an organization of students from Brebes City that study at Universitas Gadjah Mada. Even though I’ve graduated from UGM, I still keep in touch with the peoples of that organization. We have whats up a group to keep the relationship and communication.

 Moreover, against this epidemic, HIMABES UGM commits to making a donation. Several kind people were contributing to this donation. They give money via bank account transfer. We collect that donation and we convert it to be hazmat and face shield to protect the medical personnel. Then, we distributed the hazmat and face shield for several hospitals in Brebes region.  Thanks for all donator that support our charity. We hope this donation will bring us to better conditions. Aamiin. 

Our documentations:

Actually, I wonder why I made this posting because someone told me that "the deeds of charity do not need to be told". But I remember a quote that was said by Nelson Mandela:

“A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.”
