Dibawah ini adalah kesaksian dr teman sy yg tinggal di New Zealand. Kesaksiannya mengenai cara hidup / tata krama di negara tersebut. Maaf kesaksiannya dia tulis dlm bhs Inggris krn kesaksian itu diforward jg ke teman2nya di berbagai negara.
NZ Life Culture
Here, I cannot count myself and never heard educated people, supervisors, managers, colleagues who speak Bllsht, Fck, God dmn it, etc.etc… It is not our culture in NZ to say those words. We never want to swear. That’s why, God chooses NZ become His land. The people is so much different with Aussie. NZer never wants to be called Aussie. They don’t want that name. Firstly, I don;t know why. But, after leaving here 8 years, I realized that NZers are different.
Just recently, Irene and i were on the road. there was a car driven by a chinese loaded his car with heaps of boxes. Suddenly, the boot was opened and the boxes fell down on the road and the driver could not stop his car. What happened is : this is the difference, the cars behind him stopped, the drivers got off and moved the boxes into a safety place. They looked like quite heavy. They did not know whether the owner would collect them or not. Everyone is involved. Irene said, I like NZers.
NZers have helping hands and they are courteous. We never raise voice and always smile. We say hello on the street in the community though we don’t know them. They say hello first, not us. If we are polite and courteous, NZers will accept us as part of their community and we can merge in them.
HONESTY, HUMILITY, RESPECTS, COURTEOUS ARE CRITICALLY IMPORTANT IN NZ. ONCE THEY LOOSE THEIR TRUST IN US, THAT’S IT, THEY WILL NEVER TRUST US AGAIN.
THIS IS APPLIED TO WORK IN BANKS, BAKERIES OR EVEN SUPERMARKETS. EVERYWHERE…
We cannot let our blood pressure high up. We hit people, Police will take us to Court. We harass or bully people, we will get warning from Co.
the culture is “Thank you and Please”.
Usually, NZ Employers like to employ Indonesian. My Senior Manager from UK, he likes Indonesian workers as we always obey, work hard and do the best and giving no problems.
This is a small country.
God bless you.
Kenapa ya mrk bisa berlaku spt itu, sedangkan kita yg katanya bangsa yg sopan dan berketuhanan sptnya susah sekali utk tidak berkata kasar & memaki. Senyum di bumi Indonesia saat ini hampir punah. Sering kita senyum ramah ke orang lain, namun balasannya adalah pandangan ketus & curiga. Dimanakah nilai2 tata krama & kesopanan bermasyarakat yg dahulu diajarkan di bangku sekolah. Bila bangsa barat bisa knp bangsa kita tidak bisa ?
