Easter: Success!

Warning: most of the content below are written in Bahasa Indonesia. You probably won’t understand it, but I still want to share them anyways. The team did a super awesome job and I just can’t thank them enough 🙂 If you’re using Google Chrome, click on that Translate button if you’re really curious! Hehe. Btw, this is the email I sent to my Easter committee two days after the event. I’ll blog about the event at another time 😛

Dear Tim Paskah, Atas nama PUKIBC-911, kami keluarga besar UKIBC mengucapkan banyak terima  kasih atas kerja keras Tim Paskah 2011 yang dikoordinir oleh MUDIKA. Koornya bagus sekali, acaranya menarik, kreatif dan yang paling top of the top adalah makanannya enak sekali, something different!!! Bravo MUDIKA UKIBC…Two thumb up!!! GO MUDIKA GO!!! 

Thanks & GBUA, 
Tenny

Setuju ama Tenny, BRAVO. Semuanya bagus. Koornya bagus, penuh semangat. Homily nya juga mantap. Acara di gym, mulai dari dekor, pengaturan makanan dan makanan nya sendiri, siip banget. Pasti “rugi” yah panitia, 5$ mana bisa cover biaya. Tentu ada yg murah hati nombokin. 

Diluar itu, saya melihat bagus banget ya koordinator kegiatan besar diatur bergantian. Kita kan ada 3 kelompok yaitu mudika, prof muda dan satu lagi yg kita2 ini, apa namanya? Manula? Ato prof senja hehehe…nah, diatur giliran. Tadi malam, “kita2” ini bener2 nikmat, duduk manis semua beres. 

Tak ada gading yg tak retak. Ini pasti. Salah satunya adalah sound system yg belum maksimal. Didaerah depan band, suara tidak terdengar sama sekali. Mungkin perlu dipelajari lagi, bagaimana peletakan speaker atau hal lain, agar masalah ini bisa diatasi. Anyway…walaupun ada retak disana sini…tetaplah gading. Sekali lagi selamat kepada team panitia dan terima kasih atas kerja kerasnya. Tetap semangat dan tetap kompak. KasihNya menyatukan kita semua. 
BEST!

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOU, TERUTAMA UNTUK MEDA, HANIE, NISA, EUGENE, EDBERT, ANSEL, RIRI, DLL YANG SUDAH MENGURAS TENAGA, PIKIRAN DAN EMOSI UNTUK MEMBUAT PERAYAAN PASKAH UKI MENJADI MERIAH DAN TIDAK MENGECEWAKAN. PROFICIAT UNTUK KALIAN SEMUA, YANG SUDAH SEMPAT STRESS DAN HAMPIR MENANGIS…. 

BILA DARI 100 BUNGA YANG ADA DI TAMAN, ADA 1 YANG KERING, TIDAK BERARTI TAMAN ITU MENJADI JELEK.  BILA ADA YANG SALAH UCAPAN, JANGAN OTAK JADI KERING DAN MUKA JADI JELEK. BILA DARI 200 MULUT, ADA 1 MULUT YANG MENCELA, BILANG AJA: E-PEN-KAAAH  (BAHASA PAPUA). YANG PASTI, TUHAN MEMBERKATI KALIAN YANG MENGKOORDINIR ACARA TSB. KEEP ON SMILING AND PRAISE GOD. 

CHEERS, LUCIANNE GALANG
