C] PIRC 2006 Essay (Pembanding saja)

Essay of Pacific Rim International Student Camp 2006
by Jourdan Khalid Hussein, CFA – Indonesia

“We came there as strangers and left there as best friends”

I got the quote after seriously brainstorming all my memories and concluded the 

experiences gained during PRIC with that sweet remark. Such sequence of words embodying 

a delightful and meaningful sense is as significant as the international friendship all 

11 CFAs and 18 CFJs bonded in an intercultural context throughout the camp. All the 

entire activities squeezed into a tight schedule had encouraged me to write them all 

down into a memorable report.
Here, I will retrospectively recall some of experience which is worth publishing to be 

shared with others.

Disembarked safely at Narita Airport, Japan had already made its first impressions: 

efficiently sophisticated, neatly clean, and equally modern in its authentic 

traditional atmosphere. I was quite amazed by the adroit arrival procedure I had been 

through from disembarkation to the kind and punctual fetch up by Japanese staff. 

Tsuyoshi was already there with his benevolent yet tiring look smile holding my name 

tag. After having Jay Sern from Malaysia come to us, we continued our long journey to 

NOMYC by taking bus whilst I had been busy proving my first impressions; 

not-found-in-Indonesia vending machines, separation of specific bins, and a warm 

welcome by the driver of a sophisticated look bus. Overall, the bus journey was 

actually taking us to the preparation in facing culture shock they may call, but 

actually for me this was the start to get insights from a distinctive culture I had 

admired for long, the orientation of Japanese culture.

Visit to Edo Tokyo Museum was a head start and had been quite compulsory each year in 

PRIC. I found this initially boring but ended up enjoying it after found solace of 

taking some Japanese background photos. Nonetheless, I still learnt some quite basic 

knowledge of Japan and its history; paying attention in some Japanese lifestyle 

displays for my home-stay self-preparation. The Orientation continued to an 

entertainment-encompassing small city named, Kamakura. Combination of its beautiful 

beaches, mountainous scenic view complemented with some holy Shinto and Buddhist 

temples depicted a balance of Japanese expertise and concern to the aesthetic 

environment, culture and nature. My trip of educational camp was furnished by visits to 

Daibutsu (the biggest Buddha bronze statue), Tsurugauku Hachimangu and Kencho-Ji 

temple. I also had a so-called unintentional Islam discussion on the bus, way back to 

NOMYC which everybody seemed to be a bit enthusiastic towards the mostly-talked issue 

worldwide and coincidentally with the terrorism plot ambiance at Heathrow airport that 

time, my religion.

The most memorable and full of enjoyment orientation was living together for 3 nights 

with an old couple who even did not speak English at all initially yet their big effort 

to start learn one. My lovable Kobayashi family made it all complete to live daily in a 

real traditional Japanese culture. Being welcomed with a big washoku (Japanese meal), I 

straightforwardly caught the idea of hospitality. Not only did my family offer me with 

sumptuous food, suitable facilities at home and a surprise trip to Fujiku Highland but 

also their appreciative and respective attitude toward my religion and Indonesia had 

allowed me to perform my 5-times prayer smoothly and held vigorous discussion of my 

lifestyle back home.

Japan Forecast Weather Dome Station did also amaze me with their advanced technology in 

doing their tasks to forecast, much enough to inspire me with the Mt. Fuji’s summit 

temperature simulator as well. The core of the program to exchange culture had 

successfully been accomplished with a visit to Nishikatsura Junior High School where we 

were welcomed with an astonishingly marvelous instrumental music performance and taught 

Shoudo (Japanese Calligraphy) as well as Kendo (Japanese fencing). I also managed to 

introduce how to write my name in Arabic calligraphy as I learn at school and their 

enthusiasm prospered my pride as a Moslem.

Home-stay program really did enhance my adaptability to a very strange circumstance of 

which PRIC had set on their requirement. Not only personal development did I get here, 

but also a real and warm cultural exchange or even family bond with the Kobayashi which 

made us hard to say Goodbye to continue my trip to the Takato Youth Centre, off to the 

real camp.

Just arrived at the front car park, I would say Takato as a venue for elite camp 

instead and I already sensed a pleasant campsite unlike a-real-tent-built Indonesian 

one. Much to argue, are we going to have a camp surrounded with this nice building? The 

answer came not later than 1 hour when we dragged our luggage to the Cabin passing by 

the surrounded green forest while diminishing the sense of elite camp. There were some 

manly activities involved, namely Orienteering, Hiking and Canoeing and Outdoor 

Cooking; not to forget the cultural one, Cultural Exchange. Before recalling those 

aforementioned, Iʼd like to share an experience being a very proud nationalist. PRIC 

had allowed me to boost my nationalism by holding my countryʼs flag tightly during the 

opening ceremony as a symbol of representation and presented it with accompany of the 

national anthem in either morning or evening gathering. What surprisingly impressed me 

was the sense of pride and burden of good representation during all activities at the 

camp afterwards.

Such manly activities aforementioned engrossed friendship, leadership and fellowship. 

In orienteering for instance, we were indirectly required to hone those skills by 

building solid teamwork, motivating each other to endure, cultivating leadership in 

terms of leading the adventure to the right way and solving the miscommunication with 

efficient body language whereas not all CFJ could speak English well. Hiking and 

Canoeing did also develop our friendship as a group and PRIC family as a whole. Rousing 

each other, helping to get out of the boot and lending hand when almost got capsized 

were truly the basic elements of our young brotherhood. We were also trained to 

“survive” in terms of basic needs to cook with the nature-based cooking utensils in 

outdoor cooking. We worked together to chop the wood and set up the fire, peeling the 

vegetables and always cooked the best rice amongst the other groups as Kikuta-san often 

said. All those activities indeed brought of more sense of manhood and togetherness 

from us in dealing with any circumstance in the future, realistically conscious how to 

solve problems together as one people living in one world thanks to PRIC providing the 

facility to blend our varied nationalities into a sweet friendship.

The Cultural Exchange deepened our mutual understanding to each country. What all the 

CFAs presented during the day did actually bring my sense of respect and outline a 

rough plan inside my mind how to unite this world geographically, culturally and 

politically sometime in the future or I call it attainment of global peace. I also got 

along to present a video depicting my life in Indonesia as a youth and 

short-informal-drama of Indonesian puppets (wayang) talking the other side of 

Indonesia. Our perspective was further expanded by what I call as “Cabin Tales” where 

we always shared our life, taboo, custom, culture and hobbies every night before 

sleeping. I was really glad that there were no difficulties to mix with the CFJ and 

dragged them to join our talks and jokes despite the communication barrier. There I 

found that language is not a hurdle to preclude friendship or even brotherhood.

Japanese singular cultural exchange introduced more insights of Japan: food, festivals, 

flags presentation, cultural games and national anthem. We were also pleased to 

experience the magnificent structure of elegant movement of Japanese traditional tea 

ceremony. It might have been odd for some CFAs to kneel down for quite long but it was 

something that gave a sense of cultural understanding thus everyone attempted to remain 

appreciatively calm. Tea ceremony also taught me Japanese custom to respect guest and 

the art of graceful patience. Moreover, I, as an Indonesian found the similarity abide 

within the Asian culture, Japanese particularly, to the extent where we share 

politeness. The other thing which supplemented the leadership skill was the long-term 

knack as well as consciousness of the environment. Environmental seminar thoroughly 

embraced my conscience towards anything surrounding; heartened my motivation to 

preserve the environment as a leader for tomorrow seeing that Japan has shown its 

commitment to the environmental sustainability (one of them is the host for Kyoto 

Protocol) run smoothly with economy development, taking that for role-model. 

Environmental seminar productively encouraged all the participants to have pretty 

intense discussion regarding solution for the global warming and will be provisions for 

these young leaders to act wisely balance with the nature in the future.

Last but not least, the other highlight of the camp was the camper fire. The frantic 

time we had during the meeting to prepare and variable behavior from 12 countries I 

witnessed, setting up an atmosphere of a so-called congregation I would likely to see 

in the future if I want to work in the international scale. I emphasized again what I 

saw from couple days ago, that we came from different country with of course, different 

type to lead, argue, and attend a meeting in this case. But here was the challenge, how 

would you tell someone to agree with you or even to end up disagree but eventually and 

inevitably you have to work with him to run the event smoothly. This really challenged 

everyoneʼs leadership and patience, thanks to PRIC to prepare us as multi-nationalities 

young leaders get down to the reality that World is not just what you see back home.

But our cooperation, understanding, creativity, patience, leadership and fellowship 

paid off when we saw everyone really enjoyed the camper fire and all the staff looked 

satisfied and happy with all we had done that night and I went to the cabin with smile 

of proud.

The day after was the last day to enjoy together where we had our last breakfast and 

lunch at Takato. Prior to the parting moment was a closing ceremony which was almost 

similar as the opening one. During the parting, all the campers were a bit sad when we 

had to say goodbye and did not know when will meet again, regardless some CFJs who 

would come to the farewell, but we managed to exchange email and address so we could 

keep in touch and maintain this longlasting friendship hopefully. Then we continued the 

bus trip with some hilarious shouts to Tokyo and enjoy our post-camp.

Although I was still able to shop some souvenirs and explore a very little side of 

Tokyo with a very little time too, I was still not fulfilled to really experience and 

discover this modern city and its other sides during the post-camp. But I still thanked 

to witness the Japanese style of electronic market, Akihabara and Asakusa, a Japanese 

traditional market with its superb existence amid the modernized-look shops in the 

town. Exhausted with the heat and some shopping bags to carry on, we went back to NOMYC 

and dress up to attend the Farewell Party.

The farewell was really enjoyable and fun where we share our excitement looking at 

slide-showed photos and saw the NTV’s video records as well as met again with our 

host-families from Nishikatsura. We cheered the night and be prepared to face the next 

day after, leaving Japan!

It was really hard to knock on each of the CFAʼs door and drag them out to say goodbye. 

I, Yuan, and Anantchai got the earliest flight so we had to off to Narita very early in 

the morning. There was sort of burden and clash of feeling to go home and stay which 

almost drop my tear of friendship. After all, I had to leave, abandoning the physical 

beings of my new brothers but taking on their real beings with me; there is technology 

that can help maintaining our newly formed international brotherhood.

In flight, I deduced that we had many similarities that outweigh our differences; we 

could change the predicted gloomy international outlook to be brighter because we 

already built the basis of international understanding through living together and get 

across each other. I went home with smiles and believe that only with youth and 

children we can imbibe the importance of peace and start to create serenity, thus 

preventing conflicts.

“Because we are one people living in one world; only brotherhood and understanding that 

will keep the cements of peace remain united and hold the world together”
