On board 43rd Sseayp . My story

My sketches of info on SSEAYP.

Sseayp 2016 - peace and development between Asean and Japan
Mission: Promote friendship and mutual understanding
Develop leadership
Do not seek to please others.  You do not know them.  You know you. 
Everyone life is filled with their own history and reasons do not judge always be open to listen
Stories that tells of being part of the possibility
Arts and craft Social
Value of it to you
Live life each  day asking
Did I live this day fruitful
Do I regret not doing anything that I wanted today?
When you go on the ship or anywhere it needs to have a purpose
For example when you signed up for SSYEAP. What was your purpose.
Have one. To practice a language? Then practice it as often as you can.
Have an active plan and follow closely to it
So the journey will feel more meaningful

My own learning during the ASEAN Quiz.
Power point learning
Picture. Behind
Delete the picture with the number in front
Ask to go and ask questions
Come back then tick the answer to the fixed questions

3rd Dec
There is nothing right about the left brain and nothing left about the right brain
- are we open about issues happening about in the world or do we keep it away from sight? 
Do what you feel strongly about
What is it after SSEAYP?
Have you done all you could or should?
It's not the failure that matter but the process and journey
You are the future leaders
Make the changes you would like to see

2nd Dec
1. Respect diversity
Different religion different ethic groups different educational background so yet you respect each other
2. Tolerance 
3. Teamwork
Work together despite differences
4. Competition
Healthy competition to achieve better results.
Compete yet compliment each other
Learning of the spirit
- broader perspective
Diplomacy :
1. Combine personal excellence with personal experience
Must be knowledgeable with what your profession is as a diplomat you must master the info and potentials of the country you are going and your country
2. Being a promoter of cooperation and relation be an opportunity seeker find the opportunities where you can cooperate 
eg  Japan needs some materials from Indonesia - know the quality competitive prices
3. Image builder
Expose the excellence of your country present the best of your country
4. Maturity - mutual understanding
Mutually beneficial cooperation - win win situation
5. Bridge builder
We have differences but must pursue common interest
If you have some conflict you must be  part of the solution
Look for similarities
To have a comprehensive knowledge about everything politics economic social etc
Dare to be the best
Try to reach the max level of your achievement
6. What you have achieve must be shared with others - it's important to share the achievement and recognize others efforts
Contribute to world peace base on freedom lasting peace and social justice
- how can I make others happy
The less you hate the more happy you are
As long as what you do is beneficial to others as long as it affects one do it
Help others to simplify life
Be a part of the solution
Eg  conflict in Yemen
What is your comment on the attack
Find a common interest or position of one another
Diplomacy is the best solution to avoid war
What would you do differently
Are you part of negative content or positive content about friendship tolerance etc
It's a choice - be the positive content
