The journey is not over (16)

(Part sixteen, Depok, West Java, Indonesia, August 27, 2014, 6:22 pm)

I had eight hours at home after being treated for the third time in Tugu Ibu Hospital, Depok, because kidney disease due to diabetes complications.
said doktor disease in Dr Salman: '' Father must immediately dialysis (hemo dialysis / HD) twice a week, I was not on before the Lord, but medically, aged father lived count days and months if do not immediately to washed my blood, '' hear advice The doctor I can only says istigfar (ask forgiveness  on God is great) and multiply Recitation, because everything is already written by Allah Almighty in the book Ahlaul Mahfud, due to changes in the destiny God preogatif rights.
Twice in my life I witnessed how the lantern face Sakratul Death (dying/ while waiting for the Angel of Death revoke a person's life.
First my younger brother Bambang Widodo kerika he was admitted in Hospital Markets, Rebo, East Jakarta until he died about the year 2006.
Secondly, the room mates in Tugu Ibu Hospital. Both equally his lung infection caused by smoking addiction.
I just know people are dying from smoking at the time of illness suffered tremendously because of shortness of breath, that is what I experienced father, who quit smoking since 1970 for three months rahun hospitalized Cikini, Jakarta, but ketiks mninggal 2004 spots in lung -parunya still there by smoking.
Amazingly again another man who was waiting for patients who are dying just as good as smoking indoors (even in the bathroom) until the doctor who examined me doctor Salman shouted: '' Loh how cigarette smell in this room (one room Melati class one). I still do not seing directly to the smoker, if I see right away I push the bell until the nurse for contacting the security guard (security guards) to expel the watchman was out of the room.

When I work as a reporter at the Business Week , I interviewed the Chairman of the Association of Indonesia (APINDO) Sofyan Wanandi at his house in Menteng, Central Jakarta.
At that time, an aide to provide three sponge cake plates, cake turns out it was reserved for guests, and untouched Sofyan Wanandi. Unless spent his guest.
'' I have to keep my sugar levels to remain stable, "said Sofyan Wanandi.
That's one of the principles of healthy living in the rich Indoneia. Although he has a lot of companies and a lot of money but not necessarily spree Spree with expensive meals at expensive restaurants.
The same thing was done Sudono Salim (Siao Lim Liong) when I met him at a diner club BCA Sudirman he also maintain health by keeping food.
Sudono Salim one of the richest men in the world when I asked what always bring a lot of money in order to live a luxury and a good meal at a fancy restaurant '' I only bring Identity Card (KTP / ID Card) Sudono Salim said while showing the empty pockets without any content.

When Sofyan Wanandi and Sudono Salim lot of money but no-spree spree eat at fancy restaurant. Unlike my poor family background, child soldiers child punyak ten small salary as a journalist who though small salary but live in luxury, stay at the hotel is expensive to eat often at restouran expensive and luxurious, in a press conference, covering foreign guests, visit abroad.
Just imagine one example when I visited Oman. In Muscat, capital of Oman I stay at the hotel meah Al-Bhustan and luxury food disediakanan full Arabic style lamb and rice and anngur cumin oil.
Likewise, when bekunjung to Germany so I can still eat rice and friends often to restauran Turkey traits like Arabic food, mutton and cumin oil mixed raisins aside.

And so on, so in Jakarta welcomes foreign guests ranging from the Minister to the Head of State has always provided us with a luxury food and is always accompanied by a variety of candied fruit and soda-soda when we do not drink wine. As a result of this meah lifestyle then I finally fahun 1996 and then convicted of diabetes, its complications now my kidney failure. Rice has become porridge, then regret is useless, I have forgotten the hadith of the Prophet Muhammad who said: Eat before hungry stop before satiety, arinya we eat appropriate portions of the body needs are not excessive, and diligent fasting so that your body healthy.

ycoon who profited from Suharto links
By Ben Bland in Jakarta

The impoverished second son of a rice farmer from Fujian, south-east China, Liem Sioe Liong emigrated to the Dutch East Indies as a young man in the late 1930s with little more than the clothes on his back.

But through a combination of business nous and an uncanny ability to pick the right partner, Liem, who died in Singapore on Sunday aged 95, grew to become the pre-eminent industrial tycoon in what became Indonesia after independence from the Netherlands.

In the process, he helped transform the country’s economy as Liem prospered through his close relationship with Suharto, the autocratic president who ruled Indonesia from 1966 until 1998.

Though he was born and died outside the country, Liem’s personal story cannot be unwound from the history and development of Indonesia.

He was one of a number of ethnic Chinese tycoons who made fortunes because of their links to Suharto while remaining vulnerable to the visceral anti-Chinese sentiment that the autocratic president stoked and sometimes allowed to boil over into violence.
From cement to banking and cars to food, Liem’s myriad companies provided for many of the basic needs of the world’s fourth-most populous nation.

Liem, whose Indonesian name was Sudono Salim, managed to make the transition from a well-connected crony thriving on monopoly licences to a successful businessman with relatively competitive businesses.

His Salim Group, which has been led by his son, Anthoni, since the 1990s, created some of Indonesia’s best-known and most successful companies including Indofood, the country’s largest maker of instant noodles, Indocement, a building materials supplier, and Bank Central Asia.

“Sudono Salim was the pioneer in private sector entrepreneurship and business in Indonesia,” Mari Pangestu, Indonesia’s tourism minister, told the Financial Times. “He was there right at the start of Indonesia’s economic development in the late 1960s and 1970s, at a time when Indonesia needed to start the industrialisation process and the food supply business.”

Not long after he arrived and went into business with some family members as a small-time peanut oil and clove trader, Liem ran into difficulties when the Japanese invaded the Dutch East Indies in 1941. It was just one of a long list of tumults through which he would emerge ever stronger.

Muscat, Oman

As he expanded his trading business in the years after Indonesia won independence from the Netherlands in 1949, Liem began supplying goods to the military and came into contact with a young officer called Suharto. As a general, Suharto would go on to seize control after a 1965 coup attempt that threw the country into a paroxysm of anti-Chinese and anti-communist violence that left an estimated million dead.

This crucial connection helped propel Liem from a wealthy trader to the country’s richest tycoon.

Thanks to his close relationship with Suharto, he was able to win highly lucrative full or partial monopolies in everything from the import of cloves and steel to the milling of flour.
Liem’s success lay in being able to turn these cosy opportunities into competitive businesses.

“There’s a view he was only able to succeed because of his crony strategy and links to Suharto,” said Marleen Dieleman, an academic at the National University of Singapore who has written a book on the Salim group. “But there’s another view that he slowly moved from connections-based to a market-based business model and this started before Suharto was ousted.”

The Asian financial crisis, which hit Indonesia hard in 1997 and precipitated the fall of Suharto the next year, brought the Salim group and many similar conglomerates to the brink of collapse.

Liem’s bank, BCA, collapsed and was nationalised, making the Salim group the biggest debtor to the Indonesian government, owing about $5bn. But under the leadership of Anthoni, it also became one of the first companies to settle its debts after the crisis.
While the family business was to recover, Liem’s relationship with Indonesia would not. As panicked depositors rushed to pull their money out of BCA in May 1998, a mob ransacked one of his homes and he fled to Singapore shortly afterward.

Although Liem returned to visit, he never lived in Indonesia again. A fervent nationalist, according to those who knew him, this must have been a disappointing end to six decades of doing business in Indonesia.

But, taking on his father’s pragmatic mantle, Anthoni resurrected the family’s business reputation in the boom years of the past decade. Anthoni is now the third-richest man in Indonesia, with a net worth of $8.5bn, according to GlobeAsia, an Indonesian business magazine.

Liem summed up his approach to business in a 1984 interview with Tempo, a leading Indonesian news magazine, and his words may provide some comfort to contemporary investors frustrated by the confused and confusing regulatory environment.

“Today we trade in this product and tomorrow there’s a new policy and the possibility exists that we trade in something else ... Following this path is not easy but mastering it is not impossible.”

         "We are trying to make people aware of our system and not punish them," he said.
