Why must there be a raise??

My writing will be short. My question is simple :

Mudik is a tradition and a need for most of us, especially for those who are far away from hometown. To travel, we have 2 choices, get on public transportation such as bus, train, ship, airplane – or by private vehicles.

When we choose to use a public transportation. We will experience the same hard thing every year, which is tusla. Why must there be a tusla (transport fee on iedul fitri)?? It can empty our pockets!

I understand that governments need more efforts to provide the services; the maintenance things, the fuel prices things, etc. But I think it’s way too expensive. No wonder that people choose to go with their own vehicles, whether it’s car or even motorcycles. No wonder that people are willing to jostle and thrust through the crowd to get seats in economic trains. They’ll do anything to have the less expensive way to travel. Anything to gather with their family in town and anything to be back to metropolitan city to work.

Well, others say that because people get an extra salary while iedul fitri. (I know, perhaps their answers are only teasing me)
But..but..but, we, students, don’t get any!

I’ll take an example of train ticket’s price :

Mutiara Selatan : 130.000 –> 150.000 – 225.000

Argo Wilis : 210.000 –>250.000 – 400.000

Turangga :  230.000 –> 250.000 – 400.000

See, the tickets are getting higher but our pocket money is just so so. I can conclude, students are the ones who suffer the most when tusla is being applied.. -__-

Banyak banget ide yang berkembang untuk acara ini! Padahal aku pikir ini hanyalah acara kecil, sederhana, dan bersahaja. Ada yang usul:

  1. bikin buletin Citizen bwt adik-adik SD-nya.
  2. kerjasama ma oxfam & impb.
  3. bikin baligho bwt dipasang di  depan kampus.
  4. publikasi lewat radio kids (radio di bandung yang target pendengarnya anak kecil).
  5. bikin kenang-kenangan utk pihak SD.
  6. mengundang media utk meliput acara ini.

Wew!! Pusing awa.. Ok, aku hargai semua ide itu.. (hhmm..dihargai berapa ya?)

Ya suw, pokoknya…………… Mari sukseskan acara ini!!

Hayo, ada yg mau usul apalagi………..?
