Hati kelu / haru biru
Kalbu sendu / satu rindu
Indonesiaku / jadi satu
Matahari terbit sama setiap pagi, selalu di timur, tak pernah lalai, sama di seluruh penjuru negeri.
Mengapa rejeki tak seperti matahari, yang tak pandang bulu tak pandang kelas tak pandang kulit, selalu tersenyum dengan setia ke setiap manusia.
My town is plagued by trash. Literally P-L-A-G-U-E-D. Trash is everywhere. Spilling over to streets, piling high over low houses, attracting flies and spreading diseases. The initial problem was: Bandung needs a new TPA (final dumping ground) because the old one created a landslide. The proposed solution was: buying a piece of land in the neighboring kabupaten (autonomous sub-state) and installing a new trash-recycling facility. What has been done: land bought, investment sought. Problem solved? Not quite. A certain green-eyed greedy bupati (kabupaten's mayor) refused to issue the permit to use the land as TPA.
So: my town is plagued by trash everywhere. I even saw a kid dumping 'karung'full of trash to 'selokan' the other day. *sigh* :-p I really can't substitute those words with English…
