Just Worked as CS Trainee in MSA Kargo for 2 Days

I was accepted to become a customer service trainee in MSA Kargo Makassar, but I had to leave the job as I was diagnosed having infectious disease on my birthday 1 April 2015. Not good birthday gift right?

Well,  the job pays really good that it requires you to work from 8 AM to 5 PM though. Tiresome right? I know. Furthermore, as a male CS trainee, not only I have to learn how to book flight for customers to carry their goods but also how to wrap and load goods up. Hah! It’s not actually a job that I really want. I was also told that I should be ready to be placed in the weekend if customers need assistance for their goods.

Finally it’s a complete combo: I have infectious disease and the job is tiresome. So finally I quit and then I was headed to my home village to find medicine for my disease that in Makassar, it’s very expensive.

Seeing Ella Grace Denton’s World Through “We Need to Live More”

There have been several number of my favorite bloggers that I like to be an inspiration for my writings. One of them to mention, is Ella Grace Denton that I found through searching in Google about turmeric facial mask to remove bumps on my face and I ended up in her blog “We Need to Live More” and surprisingly she is girlfriend to Jack Harries, a famous vlogger from UK.

ella grace denton

This beautiful girl does not write a lot though to date at least. She is a vegan, no wonder she writes about green recipes with DIY (Do-it-Yourself) for her readers. Besides, she also shares about her traveling adventure without longer article, but only awesome photos. You want to know her private life? You may find it in the Personal section. Well, I like reading her article that is philosophy related thoughts.

Her style just reminds of Àstrid Bergès who plays Sofi in I Origins (2014). Compare them yourself. They have the same heterchromia eyes, hairstyles, and they are philosophical person.

I Want to Focus on Developing Blogs Again

I already have a job as a cashier in my uncle's coffee shop, but I am fully aware that the wage does not suffice my needs. Furthermore, working here unfortunately can not expand my career, you know. I have been applying to a lot of companies and yet I am still jobless for a moment.

I have been thinking to jump into a business but I am not strong enough in capital. Besides, what kind of business should I run?

Then I try understanding myself. Yeah, I think I should start developing blogs again to make money or doing some online marketing like selling people's product and then get a piece of cake.

18 Langkah Mengobati Scabies

Scabies atau kudis merupakan penyakit kulit yang sangat menular melalui kontak fisik secara langsung maupun penggunaan barang-barang secara bersamaan seperti handuk, helm, sapu tangan, dan sebagainya. Oleh masyarakat awam, scabies biasa disebut gudik dan umumnya menyebar di lingkungan dan masyarakat yang kebersihannya sangat rendah saat musim hujan atau iklimnya lembab. Namun demikian, penyakit kulit ini bisa juga menjangkiti seseorang yang kebersihannya terjaga sekalipun.

Scabies terjadi akibat reaksi alergi kulit terhadap aktivitas kutu mikroskopik yang bernama Sarcoptes Scabiei varian Humanis. Kutu parasit ini menjadikan kulit manusia sebagai inangnya. Kutu betina dalam 20 menit bertelur 3 butir seharinya. Setelah 4 hari telur menetas dan menjadi larva lalu ke permukaan kulit hingga menjadi dewasa dan siap melaukan perkawinan. Kutu jantan akhirnya mati dan kutu betina siap melubangi kulit dan meletakkan telurnya. Agar telur ini menetas, maka biasanya kutu ini meletakkan telurnya di bagian tubuh manusia yang hangat dan tipis seperti di lipatan ketiak, lengan, selangkangan, pantat dan alat vital.

Gejala-gejala Scabies

Mendiagnosis seseorang mengidap scabies atau tidak sebenarnya agak sulit tanpa bantuan mikroskop. Oleh karena itu sangat disarankan agar memeriksakan diri ke dokter sebelum penyakitnya menjadi parah. Gejala scabies ditandai antara lain adanya bercak merah dan sangat-sangat gatal pada malam hari dikarenakan aktivitas nokturnal kutu seperti menggali terowongan, membuang feces, dan lainnya. Muncul bercak-bercak merah berbentuk terowongan sampai panjangnya mencapai 5cm namun ada juga bulat tak beraturan. Ketika tidur disarankan agar lampu tidak dimatikan dan jangan pernah menggaruk kulit yang gatal karena menyebabkan infeksi sekunder. Infeksi sekunder ini menguntungkan si kutu karena infeksi menjadi tempat  berlindung kutu dari sinar matahari dan salep yang telah dioleskan.

Mengobati Scabies

Mengobati scabies sama sekali bukan perkara mudah apalagi jika sudah menyebar dalam satu keluarga atau kelompok. Oleh karena itu, pengobatan dan pencegahan harus dilakukan secara bersamaan agar sumber kutu bisa dihilangkan dengan tuntas guna memutus siklus penyeberannya.

Biar lebih jelas, akan saya terangkan step by step di bawah.

1. Jangan garuk luka yang gatal. Percayalah, jika digaruk akan semakin gatal dan menyebar ke seluruh tubuh lewat kuku. Kuku harus dipotong lalu dibersihkan dengan garam atau cuka.

2. Sela-sela jari dan pergelangan tangan biasanya tidak luput dari serangan scabies karena terdiri dari banyak lipatan. Rendam tanagan dengan air panas yang sudah dicamput garam 2x sehari atau ketika gatal. Lebih bagus lagi kalau sudah dicampur dengan daun/batang sirih.

3. Selalu cuci tangan dengan sabun anti septik seperti Dettol dan Lifebuoy. Sering-sering juga bersihkan dengan alkohol dengan kadar 70%. Alkohol saat ini bisa dengan mudah didapatkan di apotik terdekat.

4. Singkirkan perabotan rumah yang terbuat dari kain seperti taplak meja, karpet, dan sebagainya. Jika memungkinkan sebaiknya direndam dengan air panas yang telah dicampur dengan borax, garam, atau soda kue. Kemudian jemur di bawah sinar matahari langsung. Kursi dan meja baiknya dijemur juga, setelah itu disemprot dengan Baygon ketika sudah dimasukkan dalam rumah. Perabotan kecil misal hiasan bunga, action figure, disemprot dengan Baygon lalu bungkus dengan kantong kresek. Diamkan sampai 1 minggu.

5. Pel lantai dengan pembersih lantai yang mengandung zat aktif anti bakteri. Jika tidak dibersihkan, telapak kaki pun bisa terkena scabies.

6. Jangan pernah mencampur pakaian kotor dengan pakaian bersih! Pokoknya jangan pernah! Pisahkan baju kotor dan baju bersih dengan cara dibungkus dengan kantong kresek.

7. Sebelum mencuci pakaian kotor, rendam dengan air mendidih sampai airnya dingin. Setelah itu cuci dengan sabun yang fungsi dasarnya memutihkan seperti Rinso.

8. Pakaian yang sudah kering kemudian disetrika dengan panas maksimal. Lipat dengan rapih lalu bungkus di kantong plastik. Ketika akan dipakai setrika kembali dengan panas maksimal.

9. Sebaiknya jangan pakai celana dalam. Sebelum berpkaian, taburkan secukupnya bedak yang mengandung salycil acid (Herocin) di selangkangan dan pantat agar tidak lembab.

10. Gagang pintu bisa jadi tempat bersarang kutu kupret karena selalu dipegang setiap hari. Bersihkan lalu semprot dengan Baygon.

11. Sebelum mandi, siram luka dengan air panas yang sudah dicampur garam dan daun/batang sirih. Setelah disiram, kemungkinan akan semakin gatal karena kutunya jadi lebih aktif karena tidak tahan sama panas.

12. Mandi dengan air yang sudah ditambahkan Dettol atau Larutan PK setiap hari. Penggunaan Larutan PK bisa dilihat di sini.

13. Usahan berjemur di bawah sinar matahari di pagi hari setiap hari. Sinar matahari pagi membantu regenerasi kulit.

14. Pada malam hari setelah mandi atau mau tidur, oleskan Scabimite yang mengandung permethryn 5% dari kepala sampai ujung kaki. Beberapa saat badan akan terasa gatal yang artinya salep ini sedang bereaksi. Sebelum itu terjadi, baiknya minum CTM atau obat anti-histamin agar bisa tidur secepatnya. Pada kasus yang parah, seseorang bakal kembali terbangun karena gatal yang luar biasa. Oleskan Scabimite setiap minggu sampai betul-betul sembuh total. Jangan lupa di kuku juga ya.

15. Jika terasa gatal dan muncul bentol-bentol berwarna pink atau merah, cepat-cepat siram dengan air panas campur garam sebelum tambah parah.

16. Lama kelamaan luka akan berubah menjadi kering dan menghitam yang berarti kutunya sudah mati. Tapi tunggu dulu, gatal tidak langsung hilang bahkan semakin gatal karena didalam kulit masih tertinggal bangkai kutu bersama kotorannya. Rasanya seperti ratusan nyamuk menusuk apalagi saat bergerak. Belilah salep Biocream buatan Merck dan bubuk sulfur di apotik. Campur bubuk sulfur dengan salep Biocream kemudian sapukan di luka yang sudah kering dan menghitam.

17. Agar pengobatan berjalan maksimal, sebaiknya gunakan pula obat tradisional. Mengobati Scabies dengan cara tradisional Insha Allah akan saya lanjutkan di artikel berikutnya.

18. Sangat disarankan berendanmdi permandian air panas yang mengandung belerang atau di pantai sekalian menghilangkan penat.

Jika ada pertanyaan jangan sungkan menghubungi saya. Semoga sembuh!

Penggunaan Bubuk PK

Bubuk PK

Bubuk PK (Kalsium Permanganat) merupakan peroksidan yang berfungsi membunuh kuman dan bakteri dengan cara dilarutkan dalam air. Bubuk kristal ungu ini bekerja sebagai iritan, deodoran, desinfektan, dan astringen.Umumnya digunakan untuk mengobati luka yang tidak terlalu dalam pada kulit. Oleh karena itu, bubuk ini biasa digunakan untuk penyakit kulit saja seperti kudis, kutu air, panu, scabies, dan penyakit lainya yang disebabkan oleh jamur atau kutu.

Bubuk PK saat ini sangat mudah didapatkan di apotik dengan harga yang sangat terjangkau. Penulis sendiri baru saja membeli satu Bubuk PK seharga Rp. 4000 untuk dipakai mandi karena gatal-gatal.

Penggunaan Bubuk PK
Sediaan Bubuk PK 0,01% (1:10000).

Being a Cashier in Kopi Flyover

Kopi Flyover is a coffee shop located at Jl. Urip Sumiharjo, Makassar. The name based on the location near from the flyover bridge. My uncle is the new owner of the coffee and he appointed me to be the cashier. Honestly, I could not wholeheartedly accept it as the job always deals with money and money. Besides, I worked in the morning until  midnight. Fortunately a girl, who is family of my aunt has taken over my hours in the morning. So, I come in the afternoon after doing some housework.

Despite of my concernment, there are some things that I like to be a cashier here. Well, a number of ‘em to mention. I have free wifi connection here and I act as the administrator. The speed is good enough to download high quality movies with torrent client every day.

I do not only act as a cashier, but also as a leader. I responsibly manage the clerks and make sure our stocks are available. I tell to them what to do and what not to. Another good thing is, we are friends now.

I am afraid to ask how much salary I am about to receive and it does not really matter to me because I am working for my uncle, not for someone else. I am very indebted to him. He is my best uncle. He is very rich and fond to give me money. I respect him very much.

You Call That a Job Fair?

I really had expected to visit a job fair organised by UNM FE AKSI and Media Kreasi Production today, but when I have been walking around among the stands, well I felt very disappointed. My friend, who came from Bone to only visit the job fair also felt the same as I did. There were only a few companies, that opening vacancies yet the charged Rp. 25.000 for one person. Oh almost forgotten, a room intended for interview session were freaking useless.

The most crowded stands were Bank BJB, Astra, and an outsourcing company. I only submitted my job applications to Bank BJB, Samsung Electronics, and that outsourcing company. There was also a stand owned by PT. Finansia Multi Finance (Kredit Plus), looking for candidates for positions of Management Trainee (Head). I was about to submit my job application to Frisian Flag for Management Trainee, but when I looked at how applicants register themselves, it was through Frisian Flag website. Then, I thought I would just come home opening their website and then registering for myself.

My First Psychological Assessment to Get a Job

When I was a student at senior high school, I joined a Psychological Assessment as part of the school program to become an “international” high school. I remember I was one of several students from Science Dept. who were considered capable enough to represent on behalf of all student at the school. Therefore, we were appointed by our headmaster to join the Psychological Assessment.

Because Psychological Assessment functions to measure our intelligence and emotional state, it is also needed to determine whether jobseekers are perfect for certain positions or not after all. Just say employer is looking for a candidate, who possess high IQ, straight A’s fresh graduate, and behave well-manners, it all will be known from the Psychological Assessment.

I previously posted about my first job interview in Astra International UD Trucks for Part Sales position, I just finished its Psychological Assessment in Intelektualita yesterday. Intelektualitas is a recruitment consultant appointed by Astra Group to conduct the assessment located in Jl. RSI Faisal IV, Makassar.

The Psychological Assessment was started at 8 o’clock and joined by other jobseekers from different companies, which were Hadji Kalla, Mayora, Panin and as well Astra. The assessment consisted of Persoanl Description, Antonym – Synonym, Kostick PAPI, Basic Math, Army Alpha Intelligence Test, Drawing (Wartegg, Draw a Tree, and Draw a Person), and ended with the most tiring one, Pauli Test. Fortunately, I passed it all as you can see my name in the announcement below.
