Invasi Indomie

Sebenarnya ini udah agak basi, sudah berbau setahun yang lalu cerita ini aku tahunya tapi tetep masih kepikiran kalo ini itu sebenarnya hal yang cukup menganggumkan.. :p

Indomie seperti yang kita ketahui dengan sangat baik, adalah produsen mie instan tersohor di Tanah Air kita tercinta ini. Indomie juga adalah pelopor dalam bidang makanan instan, dan produknya memang dahsyat dan sekarang sudah mampu menembus pasar mancanegara. Orang-orang Indonesia sendirilah yang menjajah dunia dengan Indomie, dimulai dari para TKI yang bekerja di Timur Tengah, hingga para ekspatriat Indonesia yang bekerja di benua Eropa dan Amerika, lidah mereka tidak akan pernah bisa lepas dari yang namanya makanan Indonesia, dan salah satu makanan Indonesia yang paling mudah untuk dibawa kemana-mana ya Indomie itu.. :))

Namun konsumen Indomie tak hanya kalangan warga Indonesia yang berhijrah dari Tanah Air untuk mencari nafkah, di Nigeria yang merupakan salah satu negara di Afrika Indomie menjadi makanan pokok sehari-hari! Gila.. makan Indomie setiap hari.. apa ga rusak otaknya kena micin terus-terusan šŸ˜† Mungkin otak mereka udah lebih kuat kali ya.. :p

Tapi bodohnya.. mereka mengklaim kalau Indomie itu asli buatan negara mereka, Nigeria. Meskipun PT. Indofood mendirikan pabrik produksi Indomienya disana — ini dikarenakan permintaan pasar terhadap Indomie begitu besar di negara tersebut, toh merek dagang tetap tak berubah I-N-D-O-M-I-E, udah jelas kan.. Indo.. šŸ˜€

Oiya.. kalo kamu lagi laper.. terus pingin makan mie.. tapi ga ada mie.. coba ke Amazon.com aja trus search Indomie, satu bungkus $2 belum termasuk ongkos kirim.. šŸ˜€

Jepang boleh jadi penemu mi instan di dunia, tapi rajanya mi instan ya Indonesia.. šŸ˜€ terutama dengan Indomienya itu..

Kapan nih Mie Sedap nyusul??? :))

Oiya.. ini cuman komentar pribadi tentang topik ini, bukan ada maksud buat ngebajak topik. Posting aslinya bisa diliat disini

College is getting tougher.. huff..

Let’s see.. today is March 14, 2008 and it’s only the fifth week of the semester. Classes this semester gives though tasks to work on, and most of them are final-project-kind of project. So at the beginning of the semester, we should select an abtract, title, or a case-study about a certain problem.

The class which entask this kind of task are:

  1. System Engineering
  2. Advanced Database

System Engineering starts with creating a system for a certain company or enterprise. We started out blank, without knowing what to do first, the proffesor only told us that we should design a system based on ERP components such as:

  1. Man
  2. Money
  3. Machine
  4. Market
  5. Material

Right.. as if those criteria explains all about the task, but in fact we were totally blanked out. We had no idea about the task, and left clueless for the first week of the semester. The task itself should be done individually, but I grouped with some friends to create a bigger system, each person were to handle a single component of the ERP.

The fourth week of the semester, we finally found the lights that we seek, but it doesn’t solve the problem, we were still confuse. For the first step after we set out on a title, we were told to make a workflow about the system we’re going to build according to our system, as for me.. I just made random assumption about the system, and well… it worked šŸ˜€ fiuh..

Next step is we’re suppose to create business process, use-case model, use-case requirement, class diagram, data modelling, and interface of the application.

Up to now.. I’m still stuck at the business process, and the use case model about the system.. huff..

As of Advanced Database, we are required to create some sort of metadata generator for a specific input (text, image, video, so on) and maybe it’ll lead to semantic web, this project required the use of RDF data model.

The first week of the semester we’re also a chaos, because our class were mixed with the “lintas jalur” students, we as a regular students were feeling uncomfortable because of the lack of communication between these two-class of the students. Regular students tends to work easier with people that they’ve already known (The regular students) — I’m not being hypocrite, I felt the same way too. The grouping was a horror, each group consisted with three “lintas jalur” and two regular students, thank God our grouped isn’t as bad as I think it would be.

Next is the topic. Because we had no idea about what a metadata generator really is — most of us in the class were clueless, totally..

So we found a topic about a web translator, which in turn of today was not the professor had expected, and we should get another topic. We did, and we decide that we should create a metadata generator for a jpeg image which extract the EXIF metadata information and turn it to RDF format, and it was all that simple all along, but is it really that simple? Well… I don’t know.. you won’t know until you’ve tried.. šŸ™‚

So, this semester is going to be… ERP system + Semantic Web.. huff.. and that’s only two of the six class that I took on this semester.. šŸ™‚
