Several days ago, exactly at November 11th,2011 Friday morning PESTA SAINS NASIONAL 2011 was held. As information, PESTA SAINS NASIONAL 2011 or National Science Party 2011 is an event presented by Mathematics and Science Faculty of Bogor Botanical Institute. The event was about competition of many subjects which are included to Mathematics and Science Faculty study program. The competition held for senior high students.

The prestigious event started at 07.00 am Indonesian time on Institut Pertanian Bogor (Bogor Botanical Institute) in Bogor, West Java Province, Indonesia. SMAN 1 Subang (1 Subang Senior High, my school) sent several teams (19 students and a teacher) to participate PESTA SAINS NASIONAL 2011. Because of my school located in Subang which is need 4 hours to reach Bogor so we decided to off to Bogor a day before, we went by bus for destiny Subang-Jakarta. We went from Subang at 08.30 am and arrived in Kampung Rambutan station, East Jakarta at 12.30 pm. To reach Bogor from Subang we need to go to Jakarta first. Then we continued to go to Bogor by rent car. We arrived in IPB Darmaga (Bogor Botanical Institute located in Darmaga, Bogor) at 13.30 pm. First we visited FMIPA building (Mathematics and Science Faculty) of IPB to have a registration to join PESTA SAINS NASIONAL 2011. Next, some of us had a dzuhur prayer and some of us who weren’t having dzuhur prayer because of some reasons were waiting in FMIPA building near registration area. Then we had lunch in Berlin or Bara (place in IPB where collegian used to have their breakfast, lunch or even dinner. In Berlin or Bara available not only restaurants but also some clothing shop, accessories, computer shop, etc) after we had our lunch, we off to the shelter, the girls went to Wisma Islamic II by public car, the boys went to Wisnu’s place (Wisnu is our senior in SMAN 1 Subang who now attend IPB, he offers us his place to be our temporary shelter). We were welcomed by Laela and Arum when we arrived at Wisma Islamic II. Laela was the same as Wisnu. Laela was very kind and welcome, the same with Arum, she is kind and welcome too. Hours later Vivi came to the girls shelter, she graduated from SMAN 1 Ciasem, Subang and now live in Wisma Islamic II along with Arum and Laela, she goes to Physics department on FMIPA of IPB. Unfortunately, Arum couldn’t stay at Wisma Islamic II as long as we were stay there because she had some business to do.

DAY ONE à what a tired night
November 10th, 2011 was our first night in Bogor. After took a bath, we studied in order to prepare ourselves to face the competition of PESTA SAINS 2011. Frankly speaking, we weren’t focus of studying that night, haha ya you know, girls in a room J lots of topic to talk haha at the last, we got almost nothing that night -____-“ (sorry… L )
So as the time was running, day one in Bogor was veeeeerrryy tired. A lot of unforgettable, horror, creepy, funny moments were happen but it will take so much space if I tell you the detail :D
DAY TWO à SPECTACULAR ! \:D/
Night before, we were planning to wake up at 03.00 am to prepare everything for the competition like took a bath, ironed our school uniform, prepare the stuff to bring, breakfast and so on. We had to share 2 bathrooms for 8 peoples, and we had to keep the time. BUT HOW PITTY WE WERE ! we woke up at 05.00 am -____-“ we were surprise so we prepared everything in hurry, the competition began at 07.00 ! \(O_O)/
We had our breakfast at 06.30 am Indonesian time. We ate our breakfast in hurry >_<” the car picked us up at 07.00 am. We arrived at the Graha Widya Wisuda building at 07.20 am. Lucky ! we didn’t late :D the committee of PESTA SAINS NASIONAL 2011 told us to queue in the line of each competition subject. Alda, Mutiara and I were get in the line of LCTB. We entered the building, the building was sooooo HUGE. It was crowded by people who wore different school uniform. AMAZING ! COOL ! I impressed. Alda, Mutiara and I had a seat near projector, next to stairs. A minute later the other students from SMAN 1 Subang had a seat next to us. So many students there, as many as the eyes could see. Suddenly, I got nervous, the number of students there made me think that i had so many rivals, it made me under pressure. God, they look sooo GENIOUS ._. with their glasses of 5cm thick, with their cool school uniform, with their books, with their way of speaking, holy crap who am i? but I was trying to be calm.
the opening of PESTA SAINS NASIONAL 2011 was extremely amazing ! there was percussion performance, Arum was one of them, she led the percussion team. They were very cool ! the next performance was the Minang Culture Performance. Minang Culture Performance perform traditional dance from Minang, Padang, West Sumatra Province, Indonesia. You can see the performance of percussion team and Minang culture on my videos below :D
after the opening of PESTA SAINS NASIONAL 2011, it moved to the speech of rector and the leader of committee. After the speech, the committee told us that we were going to have lunch at 11.00 and at 11.15 for all boys who muslim were asked to follow the committee to go to mosque to have a Jum’at prayer. for others who didn’t have Jum’at prayer had their break until 12.30 pm. As long as the break time, Alda, Vera and I were wondering the building, visiting the stands. We visited the Biology stand, they showed us the colony of bacteria and many others. When we visited the Meteorological stand, they showed us many kind of meteorological technologies, equipment. One of the collegian who also the committee taught me about solar movement. The other collegian of meteorological also taught me about type of clouds. They were very kind J to be honest, I like the committee from meteorological program who taught me solar movement, he was my favorite hahaha (what the…)
we back to our seat at 13.00 pm to prepare for the competition. the seat was organized by the committee, in front of me was team from SMAN 1 Garut, one of them was my friend Adithia Gesar Hanafi, we were on the same 1st West Java RSMABI Jamboree. In front of Adith’s team was from SMAN 1 Bogor, one of them was also my friend, Annisa, we were on the same Pre National Science Olympiad Training of Bogor Botanical Institute 2008. I was excited, I met so many old friends there :DD I met Octavianus Marcel Haryono, he was from SMAN 1 Banjar, he joined Mathematics competition on PESTA SAINS NASIONAL 2011, he was joining 1st West Java RSMABI Jamboree. I met the other jamboree participants, they were Elizhabet Napitupulu from SMAN 3 Bogor, she was joining Meteorological competition. Elisabeth Medina Dwi Saraswati from SMAN 1 Bogor, she was joining Meteorological competition. Almas Shabrina from SMAN 2 Cibinong she was joining meteorological competition. I saw Ben Ben Leihitu, he was also the Jamboree participant but I didn’t greet him.
the competition began. It started with the qualification. The committee gave us work sheet, for LCTB the work sheet contained 100 questions. We had to answer on the answer sheet. The questions consist of different type of instructions. We were given 120 minutes to answer all the questions. If we answered correctly we were given 5 points, but if it was incorrect we were given -2. And it would be zero for each number if we leave it blank.
As the time was running the qualification came to an end. 15.30 pm the answer sheet was collected by the committee also with the work sheet. We were going back to the shelter. That day was the most EXHAUSTED day of the WEEK ! we were worry about the result tomorrow, whether we passed the qualification or not.
We went back to the shelter. I was wondering about the result, to be honest, our team wasn’t really good in preparation, but still we were hope to pass the qualification. I wasn’t sleep well that night because of too worry.
DAY THREE à sad moment :’( but WE’RE OKAY ! :DD
We went to Graha Widya Wisuda in the morning. It wasn’t only me who couldn’t sleep that night, my friends looked so tired, worry about the result too I thought. Arrived at Graha Widya Wisuda we had our seat and wait for the next event. around 10 am the committee announced the team who passed the qualification. And unfortunately, from SMAN 1 Subang only Dede and Rizky Nurwan who passed the qualification L
Well, I thanked to God that two of our friends were passed but frankly speaking, the other wanted to pass too, it will be a lie if we were ok, we weren’t ok that time, when we knew that we weren’t pass the qualification, imagine our feelings à despair.. L down L broken L depress L dying L
My friends were look so down, all of us who didn’t pass looked so terrible, many kind of thoughts passed in our mind that time.
Why did I have to fail? And many questions started with ‘why’
Well yeah we weren’t ok. Well yeah we were despair. Well yeah we were down. But finally, several minutes later, we realized that God must be had many ‘because’ for our ‘why’ J so we got up, tried to be positive, smile and tried to accept the final result. “well maybe I deserve this, I didn’t prepare well for this” I was thinking that way. Well it just exactly like Gaia’s theory, the feedback theory J if we do something positive, the feedback will be positive too, in opposite if we do something negative, the feedback will be negative too. Our preparation wasn’t good enough so the result of our effort wasn’t maximal. OUR LIFE WASN’T OVER \:D/
My bestfriend-since-7-grader Syahid Rohmatullah was the one who looked most terrible among us. I cheer him up, made him think positively, and thanks to God, he finally got up and smile again J
Next, the committee said we had our break ‘til 12.30 pm. The participants who didn’t pass the qualification would have motivation training with Setia Ahmad Furqon (motivator) after the break time and for them who passed the qualification would have to continue the competition in other place. Well I didn’t know how the competition was running, we weren’t allowed to see it. The motivation training was very awesome, the participants who didn’t pass the qualification seemed got their spirit again, they finally got up and didn’t look terrible anymore J thanks God and thanks to Mr.Setia J .
After the motivation training, there are some games and it was really fun J
There was a man who sang after the motivation training, he sang You Rise Me Up by Josh Groban, his voice was EXTREMELY AMAZING all of us were surprise, at the first time we thought the singer was a woman, but we were wrong, the singer was a man ! my God, his voice was really beautiful, just like a woman singing. We impressed.
The day almost over. It was the time for us to go home to Subang.
But before, we have to back to shelter to take our stuffs. We had our dinner in Bara, we met the other SMAN 1 Subang’s graduated student in Bara, they were Windi and Asep. We were glad to meet them, we had a talk. Then we ate meatballs. Oh I almost forgot, Vera, Akbar, Mutiara and I got ombrometer, a gift from meteorological collegian. Thank you J
After thanked to Wisnu, Laila and Vivi, we went to Subang by travel. We were very tired so all of us were sleeping from Bogor to Subang. It was late already when I arrived at home, around 11.30 pm.
