Sembako stands for nine basic ingredients. Of the nine types, they are rice, sugar, eggs, milk, vegetable oil/butter, salt, vegetables/fruits, beef, and LPG. An abbreviation used in my country Indonesia.

Of the nine basic ingredients, during this pandemic, the government and also the people who can't afford it or can afford it is often echoed. Because, this is indeed the basic need of people in Indonesia in general.

Food staples are the main ingredient during the pandemic, which is in the spotlight both in the media and outside the media. The government's attention to this discussion has also been widely poured and sometimes during the general election it becomes the target for candidates to become a tool to get the attention of the masses.

Sembako is also often used as a discussion of social assistance because this is a need that is indeed a benchmark for people in Indonesia and the world for survival. The view of sharing and helping each other becomes a place for necessities that can be used as the basis of humanity.

But the funny thing is that the abbreviation for necessities that are often used, where there should be a total of nine, only includes 6 types, even often only 4. The averages that are often not obtained or included are beef and LPG. Indeed, if the main reason is difficult in the word division in general. At least not using groceries anymore. It should be adjusted to the right word abbreviation. For example, only four types shouldn't Embako or some other amount. So that the word proper use and public fooling is not reflected here.

Indeed, if we are grateful, we must be grateful, but there are other things, it means that if the people or the community tell lies, the problem of basic needs is normal. People should receive nine but only get four. If you want to provide good education, it is better to use good and correct Indonesian words, they should not be abbreviated but have different meanings.

Yes, this is what happened in my beloved country of Indonesia. As long as you use language but don't understand the real basic meaning. In fact, if you look at the main purpose of education is to provide broad learning and make this country produce more educated people.

Unfortunately, education outside of school often violates the learning ethics that have been given to the Indonesian people. How is it possible to create a country that has good education for the people if the entire government that is sitting and should put the interests of the people first, instead puts their personal interests as the main factor.

It's easy to criticize, isn't it? Giving a critic or opinion is indeed very easy for everyone to do. This article is an example of criticism or opinion that is deliberately made to represent an article. At least it can be used as an example that constructive criticism or judging something is good with a good aim and a bad target. Hopefully, the awareness of self-awareness can be prioritized in the future, of course, it is devoted to myself as a writer. And hope that it will give positive value to many people about the meaning and meaning of the purpose of this paper.

Nothing is best when it includes the self or the being. Respect is better than judging others. It's easy to talk or criticize without hard facts and evidence but pride and laughter has been created. It forgets its true nature as living beings who were created to socialize with others regardless of degree and everything else that makes the life they live worse off. Because diversity is beauty. And beauty is happiness.

Without self-awareness what is the meaning of life that we live let alone concerning myself personally.

I see. Slightly similar pronunciation indeed, but different meanings :). If this is just an abbreviation of fragments of a few words.
