MOST RECENT

It’s been a month since the passing of Kofi Annan.
Isn’t it surprising to you that his death was super low key? Or is it just me and some of my closest friends?
.
I feel like I need to do an “in memoriam” for him on the #bookstagram sphere. He was the only UN Secretary General when the UN still mattered, in my opinion. I grew up learning about him and what he did for the organisation — and essentially for the world.
I wonder if today’s children are learning about the current @unitednations Secretary General. Who even is the current UN Secretary General?
.
I feel #blessed that I’ve got to attend his public lecture. Twice.
Once was after lining up, freezing, at @londonschoolofeconomics. Another one was a few days after, I was casually strolling around @southbank.london, curios to see what was happening and Annan had a ticketed event that afternoon. I went to @twitter to check what people are saying about the event. Turned out someone couldn’t make it to the event, I slid into her DM, she gave me her ticket and I ended up being inside another one of Annan’s lectures. #thepowerofsocialmedia
.
My experience in attending his lectures and reading this book opened my eyes to international relations and politics. I ended up learning so much of what happened in the world when I was too young to understand. Annan even has a chapter about Timor Leste in this book.
Re the UN, I feel like I don’t see eye to eye with him anymore. He loved the UN with all his might. When someone dared to ask him about how obsolete the organisation is now, his answer was,
“Don’t think about the UN as ‘they’ or ‘you’, think about it as ‘us’.”
😌
I’m sorry, unfortunately I won’t accept that answer.
.
RIP Kofi Annan. Thanks for pushing me to learn about something new everyday.

Eight Verses for Training the Mind’

September 17, 2018

Rotterdam, the Netherlands - When His Holiness the Dalai Lama met six Dutch Parliamentarians this morning he was swift to tell them how much he appreciates their concern for Tibet. As time goes on more and more people come to appreciate that Tibetan culture is sophisticated and useful, while it is being steadily destroyed in Tibet. He pointed out that Tibet has always been politically significant as a buffer between India and China. “We’re not seeking independence because it would likely be difficult to achieve, but if we did, we would remain poor. Tibetans are no more averse to prosperity than anyone else. If we remain with the People’s Republic of China (PRC) we can benefit from China’s powerful economy. “The Chinese constitution recognises various Tibetan areas and we should have the freedom to preserve our language and culture in those regions. We can work together, the Chinese can provide us with material benefit, and we can offer them spiritual support. I greatly admire the spirit of the European Union which gives more importance to the common good than narrow national sovereignty. We could enter into a similar union with China. “Historically Tibet was an independent state. Chinese documents record the existence in the 7th, 8th and 9th centuries of three independent empires—China, Mongolia and Tibet. Subsequently, no Chinese records from the Tang dynasty until the Manchu dynasty refer to Tibet as part of China. However, the past is past and I note that members of the European Union remain sovereign states.

Every credible scientific source is telling us that these impacts will only get worse if we do not address climate change and it also tells us that our window of time for addressing it is closing very soon…We need to dramatically increase our ambitions.”

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) works to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world. The IMF's primary purpose is to ensure the stability of the international monetary system—the system of exchange rates and international payments that enables countries (and their citizens) to transact with each other. The Fund's mandate was updated in 2012 to include all macroeconomic and financial sector issues that bear on global stability.

Well, this pic -indeed- looks uncool ya. But, it was the very first pic we took as a team in North Lombok and it means so much, at least, for me :')

It was taken when I was on a mission of medical emergency response with @mercindonesia to help victims of the earthquake disaster in North Lombok

Alhamdulillah, finally found myself surrounded by people who sincerely committed to help those most in need and neglected, with high dedication and determination *Kalo kata Kang Obew mah, Mer-C rasa Wanadri 😂*

SDG #5 - GENDER EQUALITY
On average, women in the labour market still earn 24 cent less than men globally. Women do 2.6 times more unpaid work than men. Only 52% of women married or in a union freely make their own decisions about sexual relations, contraceptive use and healthcare.
How can we ensure more equality and equal pay for women globally?
