God's Boxes

I have in my hands two boxes,
Which God gave me to hold.
He said, "Put all your sorrows in the black box,
And all your joys in the gold."

I heeded His words, and in the two boxes,
Both my joys and sorrows I stored,
But though the gold became heavier each day,
The black was as light as before.

With curiosity, I opened the black,
I wanted to find out why,
And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole,
Which my sorrows had fallen out by.

I showed the hole to God, and mused,
"I wonder where my sorrows could be!"
He smiled a gentle smile and said,
"My child, they're all here with me.."

I asked God, why He gave me the boxes,
Why the gold and the black with the hole?
"My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,
The black is for you to let go."

We should consider all of our friends a blessing.
Send this to a friend today just to let them know you
are thinking of them and that they are a joy in your life.

A ball is a circle, no beginning, no end.
It keeps us together…

Memilih Bahan Makanan Bebas Formalin dan Borax

Jaman teknologi semakin maju, dunia produksi bahan makanan juga mengalami banyak perubahan. Bila jaman orang tua kita bahan makanan yang dijual di pasar tradisional tidak bertahan lama, hal itu dikarenakan tidak adanya penambahan bahan pengawet. Nah sekarang, bahan makanan yang tersedia di pasaran lebih awet, apakah itu dengan teknologi pengolahan makanan yang canggih ataupun karena pemakaian bahan pengawet seperti Formalin atau Borax. Berikut ada tips bagaimana cara memilih bahan makanan yang sehat:

Bahan Terlarang : Yang tergolong dalam bahan tambahan terlarang dalam makanan adalah bahan-bahan yang tidak seharusnya dikonsumsi oleh manusia baik dalam jumlah kecil maupun besar. Bahan kimia terlarang yang sering dipakai adalah formalin, borax dan zat pewarna tekstil Rhodamin B. Formalin seharusnya dipakai hanya untuk mengawetkan mayat supaya tidak berbau dan tidak busuk. Borax banyak dipakai untuk bahan sabun cuci sedangkan Rhodamin B adalah pewarna tekstil bukan pewarna makanan. Tentu …

1000 Marbles

The older I get, the more I enjoy Saturday mornings. Perhaps it’s the quiet solitude that comes with being the first to rise or maybe it’s the unbounded joy of not having to be at work. Either way, the first few hours of a Saturday morning are most enjoyable.

A few weeks ago, I was shuffling toward the basement with a steaming cup of coffee in one hand and the morning paper in the other. What began as a typical Saturday morning, turned into one of those lessons that life seems to hand you from time to time.

I turned the dial up into the phone portion of the band on my ham radio in order to listen to a Saturday morning swap net. Along the way, I came across an older sounding chap with a tremendous signal and a golden voice. You know the kind. He sounded like he should be in the broadcasting business. He was telling whomever he was talking with something about “a thousand marbles”.

I was intrigued and stopped to listen to what he had to say. “Well, Tom, it sure sounds like you’re busy w…


All of us has many friends. Some friends are very supporting, kind hearted, patient, encouraging. As the opposite we may have one or two friends who are cynics. They just always see the cloud in the shiny days. They are so sensitive that they can see things differently and make our days worse.
I found some words about cynics
and I laughed when I read it. Yes, it’s true, I know some of them and how they react just exactly the same with the proverbs below:

A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin.
Henry Louis Mencken (1880-1956) American journalist, satirist and social critic.

The cynic is one who never sees a good quality in a man, and never fails to see a bad one. He is the human owl, vigilant in darkness and blind to light, mousing for vermin, and never seeing noble game.
Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887) American politician.

A cynic can chill and dishearten with a single word.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet, essayist and lecturer.

Kdrama: My Boss My Hero

Jeong Jun-Ho as Gye Doo-Shik
Jeong Wung-in as Kim Sang-do
Oh Seung-eun as Yoon-Joo

I have mentioned in my previous post that the Japanese drama has adopted the Korean version with the same title. With almost the same story: both gangsters are force back to school to get their diploma. This original version offers more violence compared to the Japanese version. The other differences are:
Korean version:
. Kye Doo-sik is the second man-in-command of a mob gang.
. Kye Doo-sik builds love relationship with his classmate Yoon-joo.
. The school is a high-class school which is bad managed. The parents routinely bribe the school principal to ensure their children get good marks, the school principal also does some sexual harassment to female teachers. The principal able to do to because he is backed by a local mob gang. The school also adopts brutal education system which a teacher punishes the late students every morning.
. Most funny parts caused by Doo-sik’s underlings, Kim Sang-do (who…


Kerinduanku datang padaMu

I like this song so much, maybe some of you know this song.

If Someone Love You….

Seseorang yang mencintai kamu,
tidak bisa memberikan alasan mengapa ia mencintaimu
Dia hanya tau, di mata dia, kamulah satu satunya.
Seseorang yang mencintai kamu,
sebenarnya selalu membuatmu
marah / gila / jengkel / stress
Tapi ia tidak pernah tau hal bodoh apa yang sudah ia lakukan,
Karma semua yang ia lakukan adalah untuk kebaikanmu.

Seseorang yang mencintai kamu,
jarang memujimu, tetapi di dalam hatinya kamu adalah
yang terbaik, hanya ia yang tau.

Seseorang yang mencintai kamu,
akan marah – marah atau mengeluh jika kamu
tidak membalas pesannya atau telponnya,
karna ia peduli dan ia tidak ingin sesuatu terjadi ke kamu.

Seseorang yang mencintai kamu,
hanya menjatuhkan air matanya di hadapanmu.
Ketika kamu mencoba untuk menghapus air matanya,
kamu telah menyentuh hatinya, dimana hatinya selalu
berdegup / berdenyut / bergetar untuk kamu.

Seseorang yang mencintai kamu,
akan mengingat setiap kata yang kamu ucapkan
Bahkan yang tidak sengaja dan ia akan selalu
menggunakan kata – kata itu tepat waktunya.

Two Hospitals in Two Weeks :P

Last week when I had symthoms of cough with Phlegm (just knew this terminology) I went to hospital in Ramkhamhaeng area, the doctor told me that I got SINU$, and he gave me a lot of medicine, which is not free but paid by my insurance policy. The doctor is a specialist doctor for Ear Nose and Throat, unfortunately speak very poor English. Or if I'm see it from very positive view that he was not well too therefore he just couldn't explain well why I got sinus and what caused it. The doctor which I assume is a senior doctor because he seems a bit senior than me, much more senior, from his hair.

The next day I searched in Internet about SINUS, and there are three kind of SINUS, which the doctor failed to tell me which kind of SINUS I had, if any, which later proven to be WRONG: I don't have and free from ANY SINUS < -- Thanks Jesus.

Some symptoms has been healed, but cough.
Now even worse, so I decide to go to another hospital near Ramkhamhaeng, with the orange color buildi…

Dangerous Cooking Habits - Part II

The second part of last post.
Microwaving food in containers

Why is it dangerous?
In the first article about cooking dangers, it was pointed out that the radiation from microwaves has not been proven to be particularly dangerous in itself, providing that the appliance is in good working order. Rather, the danger lies in the types of containers you microwave your food in.

Certain plasticizers, chemicals designed to make rigid plastic more pliable, may act as endocrine disrupters. They may mimic or compete with human hormones, which could affect fertility or cancer risk. While more research is required to prove this link, it is best to avoid microwaving plastic containers that aren't specifically designed for microwave use.

There are also concerns regarding Styrofoam and other materials such as paper coffee cups. When microwaved at high temperatures, paper and adhesives on the packaging may cause dangerous components to "leak" into food at excessive levels. These substa…

Dangerous Cooking Habits - part I

You are what you eat.
We eat food everyday every time, it's necessary to take care and choose healthy food. Some bad habits about food we must avoided are as below:

Too much salt
An excess of sodium in a diet can raise blood pressure. That alone may cause numerous other conditions, some of which have permanent consequences. The American Heart Association recommends 2.4 grams of salt per day. More than that may lead to strokes and kidney problems.

Salt hardens the arteries, so if a person happens to have high cholesterol, the problem can compound. Getting off the habit of salty food can also be frustrating; some claim that salt is addictive (ever see people who put salt on their food before tasting it?), so start early and avoid the "white stuff."

Alzheimer's-causing foods
The origins of Alzheimer's disease are still poorly understood, though one thing is certain -- prevention can start early. Studies are sketchy on the matter but here is what scientists have disco…

IRC Friends

In the period of 1998-1999 I was addicted with ICQ and mIRC. Both just like today’s MSN or Yahoo Messenger which we can interact online with our friends.

IRC in mIRC stands for Internet Relay Chat which M stands for ‘moo’ or MU as explained by Khaled Mardam-Bey. Source: it is said that mIRC is very popular which is downloaded 9.129.578 times from CNET’s per October 2007.

Term IRC means a virtual meeting place where people from all over the world can meet and talk and share ideas. To use it, beside the PC or laptop and internet connection we need to install the software which can be downloaded online and free from The official website also provide instructions how to install mIRC.

The users able to participate in channels, make a channel, or even chat in private window. We can choose nickname and the mIRC will tell us if the nickname is already taken, so we need to change it. Sometimes if the member of channels us…

The Greatest Pain in Life

*** Received from a friend -- wow what a rich girl I am, having so many friends who care about me, thank you my friends ***

The greatest pain in life
is not to die,
but to be ignored.

To lose the person you love so much
to another who doesn’t care at all.
To have someone you care so about so
much throw a party…
and not tell you about it.

When your favorite person on earth
neglects to invite you to his graduation.
To have people think that you don’t care.
The greatest pain in life,
is not to die,
but to be forgotten.

To be left in the dust after another’s great achievement.
To never get a call from a friend, just saying “hi”.
When you show someone your innermost thoughts
and they laugh in your face.

For friends to always be
too busy to console you
when you need someone to lift your spirits.
When it seems like the only person who cares about you,
is you.

Life is full of pain,
but does it ever get better?
Will people ever care about each other,
and make time for those who are in need?

Each of us has a part t…

*** This article I got from my friend. I am blessed and want to share with you, may God bless abundantly as what He has done for me day by day. ***
In 1960, I woke up one morning with six hungry babies and just 75 cents in my pocket. Their father was gone. The boys ranged from 3 months to 7 years; their sister was 2. Their Dad had never been much more than a presence they feared.

Whenever they heard his tires crunch on the gravel driveway they would scramble to hide under their beds.

He did manage to leave $15 a week to buy groceries.

Now that he had decided to leave, there would be no more beat-ings, but no food either.

If there was a welfare system in effect in southern Indiana at that time, I certainly knew nothing about it. I scrubbed the kids until they looked brand new and then put on my best homemade dress, loaded them into the rusty old '51 Chevy and drove off to find a job.

The seven of us went to every factory, store and restaurant in our small town. No luck.

**Got this from my friend too, not my creation**
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has…

Sleep late or skipping breakfast? Must read

I got this from my friend, hope this will be useful for you.

Good rest and sound sleep is very Important... if u don't sleep well, the toxic in your body will accumulate..
Affecting your health and your mood...

The main causes of liver damage are:
1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are the main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
8. Consuming overly done foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good e…

The Most Dangerous Potato Chips to Eat

I got this warning from my friend this morning.

I’m not a junk food fan, but potato is my favorite food. Fried potato ie French fries or home made fries. In Indonesian culinary there is perkedel, made from potato. It’s very delicious. I like potato chips also, even not often and I can live without it. Just, a few months ago I ate 3 packs of Lays potato chips because I was with my friends at that time and everybody were eating some junk food. Ooo, it’s disappoint me that I have consumed ‘unhealty’ potato chips.

Here is the article included Dr. Joseph Mercola’s comment, source : You can check the source at here

Public knowledge of the serious dangers found in potato chips may finally be surfacing. The California-based Environmental Law Foundation (ELF) has filed notices with the state's attorney general against potato chip manufacturers:

# Lay's potato chip maker PepsiCo Inc.
# Pringles maker Proctor & Gamble Co.
# Cape Cod potato chip parent Lance Inc.
# Kettle Chips maker Kettl…

Japanese drama: My Boss My Hero (2006)

If you are looking for a very funny comedy drama, this is the one. I watched it alone so I laughed alone too :D :D :P. I like Sakaki “Tornado” Makio’s face expression, very funny. And unlike other gangster he likes pudding. On the right picture is Nagase Tomoya who played as Sakaki Makio.

Actually this drama is adopted from a Korean drama “My Boss My Hero” with almost the same story and setting, involving the high school, teacher, yakuza or gangster. A yakuza Sakaki “Tornado” Makio (Nagase Tomoya) who returns to school by the leader’s force (Makio’s father), posing as a 17 year-old student. He must acts like a student, and avoid to be seen as a yakuza. If his identity is revealed he will be expelled from school and the position of 3rd boss of Kantou Sharp Fang will be given to his younger brother, Sakaki Mikio (Kikawada Masaya)
He is helped by his loyal ‘younger brother’ Manabe Kazuya (Tanaka Koki). At first Makio even cannot write his name in Kanji, but then he became a class leader of…

I am K.O.

Since yesterday, I have sore throat. It's painful in all my body.

I contacted my sister in Indonesia to get the traditional recipe for this. She told me to drink fresh milk (cow's milk not bean's milk), and drink water+ salt before breakfast, which has been prepared from night before. So yesterday I bought a big packs of Thai Danish milk the red color (fresh and plain) and I drank 2 boxes of them.

It's better now, the fever is reduced but my head still aching and spinning.

Still feel lazy to interact with people. Lazy to smile, the world so cloudy, but not rainy yet :D :D :D

Want to take rest but last week I already took sick leave to recover from my headache and stomachache.

Guess my face is green and my eyes are red, my tongue is blue. HIIiiii

I Thank You Jesus

Yes, God is good all the time, God is good.
When I am in a good condition where I'm able to do things I want I will surrender less to God. More or less I have my 'own power' maybe compared to my friends, or other people. I have something I proud of, maybe my job title, my education, my family, my social status or anything.

Only when we are in our worst condition we can really say 'God is good'.
As I wrote in previous posts I had some difficulties for me, a condition that I can not do anything only surrender to God while my flesh wants her own path also. It's like a battle in my world, in my sould, in my mind and in my heart.
These week I really get the 'God is good', He give me peace in the worst condition.
That's the meaning of peace, to be contented in the seems-lack situation.

Totally believed in Him, that He is God who has wonderful plan in my life, to bring me from glory to glory, not limited by my limited mind. Thank you Jesus.


Shanti hurries to get inside her bedroom, she needs to change her clothes, or at least to comb her hair. She puts some powder. Ah, it’s better now, looks fresh. Soon she comes out and finds her friend, Bro Yun. Well exactly he is much older than her.

Bro Yun is a university student. A bright student wearing thick glasses. Behind the glasses are a pair of sharp eyes.

Every week on Saturday Bro Yun will come and pick her up for the Youth’s service. She always ready before the time comes. But today, it’s not Saturday and Bro Yun comes. She was helping her mother to sew some clothes. It’s not pleasant to be seen in that condition, sitting on the floor with bending back on the sewing machine. The pieces of cloth are scattered everywhere.

“Hi Shanti, how are you, are you busy?”
“Not so busy, Bro. How are you? You don’t have a class today?”
“No, now is my summer holiday. I just on my way to fetch something nearby here. Do I disturb you?”
“No, not at all. I just helping my mother with some sewin…

Once upon time in Indonesia ... there was a beautiful girl with great character. Her name was 'CICI CICI' aka CC she was very talented in arts. She was so good in acting, singing and design. She lived in a city called 'BUNGA' aka flower.

A handsome man, called 'Jaka Jaka' aka JJ was a very handsome man. He came from a rich, respectable family who owned large properties in East Java. He lived in a city called 'KUMBANG' aka bee.

JJ's parents urged him to get married soon. He was 30 and his parents were worry that he couldn't make 'BEFORE 30' success in his life. They wanted grandchildren to inherit the properties and honored-family name.

In a festival the citizen of BUNGA and KUMBANG gathered for a royal ceremony. It was a very big celebration on the year of big harvest of RICE, Indonesian primary food. Of course the Indonesian eats rice with some vegetables, meat and fish. Back to the festival, there were many beautiful girls and boys.

Surabaya is the capital city of East Java province. Formerly Surabaya was called Soerabaja, but then changed with the new Indonesian spelling. It is a city with history. Many tribes live here, Javanesse, Maduras, Chinese, Arabians. The main language used is Surabaya dialect, which is different with common Javanese.

Surabaya is also a second largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta. Although it is a large city, it remains the same as before, not too crowded or modern like Jakarta. It still has traditional side among the neighbours, where people care others. This build a good relationship and good environment control for a peaceful and understanding life.

The weather is hot because it located near the sea. In Surabaya there are many interesting places like zoo(it will be better if good-maintained), Monkasel monumen, Kya Kya food bazar. Around Surabaya we can find many interesting outdoor places to go: Tretes, Batu, Malang, Sarangan, Safari Park, Jatim Park.

It is very famous with delicious…

Tintin Comic

I’ve mentioned that I like comics/cartoon. One of my favorite is Tintin, a comic originated from Europe (Belgium). The original comics are in French, and later are translated to over 50 languages.

The setting is about Tintin’s adventure to get some news, because he is an reporter. He is brave young man, accompanied by his Terrier dog ‘Snowy’ and his friend Captain Haddock, a hot-tempered sailor who always faces unlucky moments. Professor Cuthbert Calculus join as an absent-minded and half-deaf physicist. Imagine the hot-tempered Captain met the Professor, this is very funny. In the other hand, the detectives Thomson and Thompson who are not twins but looks alike other than their names, with their stupid acts always can get to Tintin’s way when investigating something. Biacan Castafiore is an opera singer who always forgets Captain Haddock names.

Even I read this comic when I was a kid; the content is too heavy for children. It’s suitable for an adult or teenager I guess. After a long ti…

Japanese Drama: OSHIN

I watched this drama years back when I was in elementary school, I guess, a long long time ago. But this drama is so nice and always in my memory.

Oshin was played by
Kobayashi Ayako as little Oshin (age 6 – 10 years old)
Tanaka Yuko as young Oshin (age 16 – 46 years old)
Otowa Nobuko as old Oshin (age 50 – 84 years old)

The central character, Oshin had gone through hard work and perseverance, being born in a very poor rural family, lived in post-ward life where the economic was in turmoil. Through all this the character is developed become more mature and stronger. As a heroin eventually she could gain fame and success.
We can take lesson however difficult is our life when we still alive we can overcome it. The problems in our life make us stronger persons.

Steps in making Artificial Eggs

** Taken from another source **

For egg yolk, some lemon-yellow colouring powder is mixed to a liquid and the concoction stirred. The liquid is then poured into a round-shaped plastic mould and mixed with so-called ‘magic water’, which contains calcium chloride.

This gives the ‘yolk’ a thin outer membrane, firming it up. The egg is then shaped with a mould. The shell is not forgotten. Paraffin wax and an unidentified white liquid are poured onto the fake egg, which is then left to dry.

The artificial egg can be fried sunny-side up or steamed. Although bubbles appear on the white of the egg, those who have tasted it say the fake stuff tastes very much like the real thing.

But experts warn of the danger of eating fake eggs. Not only do they not contain any nutrients, a Hong Kong Chinese University professor warned that long-term consumption of alum could cause dementia.
1. To make the egg white, various ingredients, including a powder and alum, are mixed together.

2. The ‘yolk’ is shaped …

China’s Artificial Eggs

Sep 11, 2007
Recently, China's artificial products have been under the spotlight in Korea. Several mainstream Korean media have reported on the process of making artificial eggs in China, which has stirred up panic and caused great concern among Koreans.
On September 1 and 2, the Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) did a documentary titled "Life without products made in China." The show followed the daily lives of three families in South Korea, the US, and Japan who refused to use products made in China. It also talked about rampant artificial eggs products in Chinese markets, catching the interest of the Korean public.

Following the show, Korea's number one newspaper Chosun Ilbo, published an article titled "MBC Special exposes artificial eggs made in China," reporting in detail how the artificial eggs were made.
The Dong-A Ilbo, another Korean newspaper, also published a report titled "Artificial eggs from China made of chemicals appear on the marke…

Sluggard: Vinegar to the Teeth, Smoke to the Eyes

What Bible said about sluggard (laziness), can be found in Proverbs (King James Version):
6:4 Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.
6:5 Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.
6:6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
6:7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
6:8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
6:9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?
6:10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
6:11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
10:4 He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
10:5 He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.
10:26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him.

Korean Drama: Smile Again

I just watched this Korean drama. It’s about young people love in the baseball softball world. The drama also took placed in Switzerland with some beautiful scenery as background and French spoken scenery.

* Lee Dong Gun as Ban Ha Jin
* Kim Hee Sun as Oh Dan Hee
* Lee Jin Wook as Yoon Jae Myung
* Yoon Se Ah as Choi Yoo Kang

At first I don’t like so much this drama because I don’t like sports. But the lead actress Oh Dan Hee is so sweet, she is getting more beautiful over the time.
This drama has some sad scene:
• When Ban Ha Jin left Oh Dan Hee because Choi Yuu Kang killed her father for the sake of Ban Ha Jin. At that time Oh Dan Hee was waiting for him to come, but he couldn’t fulfilled his promise.
• Sarah Jung (Oh Dan Hee’s mother) was told by the detective she hired that Oh Dan Hee was dead. Sarah Jung cried at hospital, when Oh Dan Hee was hit by an anonymous biker.
• When Ban Ha Jin told Oh Dan Hee that he was only play with her, not really in love with her. He …

Easy Promise Easy to Break

In this weeks I just met a person, lets him called Andy. He is an ordinary guy, does what people does. Not so special. One thing I got from him, after interacted with him for a job.

He is warm person, so he is easy to make friends. He is friendly, that’s why I’m comfortable with him. So easy to talk, that often he invites me for something, or promises me something with his warm smile. I took his words, of course, why not? If he says something surely he meant it right? He is a man, of course and he doesn’t say it for humor.

Unfortunately, after I took some actions based on his words, he seemed to forget his own words to me earlier. And sometimes it made me uncomfortable. I was shocked, embarrassed, disappointed. I trust him, and he just forgot his words. Well, he is still a good man, but I really learnt something from him.

If I can not or not sure about something, please remind me not to promise something easily. If I am disappointed with Andy’s attitude, I will be better than him. I wil…

I am Powerless

Last week was good time for me, almost no worry for something that has followed me until now. I had good time for myself just reading or watching some Korean/Japanese drama. I had good time with my friends, learn how to get a long with each other in our big family BIC Bangkok. It’s difficult but not impossible for me. Indeed it become easy compared to what this morning I had.

Now, I really want to do something, not because I like it, simply because of the relationship bound me with a person. I want to do it because it really help me to grow make me a better me. I want to do it because it made me a whole human, not just a walking machine that has no feeling. But a human being is vulnerable, complicated by the feelings and situations involved.

When I want to do it, there are some obstacles I faced. They are:
1. From other persons surrounding us, who maybe unhappy or just innocent to become spirit-killing things for me and block my way to it. I just try to be positive, thinking that they a…

Healing Movement in Bangkok

The poster was in Thai
Bangkok, September 19, 2007

On Wednesday we have Healing Movement crusades by Ps. Ir. Niko Njotorahardjo from Indonesia with his team. It was so so wonderful moment. People felt God's presence, God's love and they were healed, restored. Not only their health but also their mind, their broken heart and broken relationship.
Unlike our prediction before, which some of the committee expected aroung 600 people attended. The reality it was aroung 1000, many of them just stood or sat on the floor because more people than the capacity of the room.

Mr. Welyar Kauntu was the worship leader as seen from the picture.

I was on my duty doing the multimedia at that time. At the beginning there was problem with the IBM laptop, it refused to work! Together with Mas Apri finally he could fix it. Fortunately the worship leader knew and helped us control the situation. I really got blessing that night, even I couldn't see the healing. There were so many people in front of…

Trapped in Traffic Light for 1 Hour

This is my experience in Bangkok in last August 2007, end of month. I had a prayer meeting somewhere in Petchburi road, and I took bus from to go there. It was Friday, and usually every Friday when it is end of month also it means VERY VERY BAD TRAFFIC JAM. Heard a lot about this. As I don't go around a lot, I just smile when people got mad about it.

This picture is for illustration about the traffic jam, not the situation here though.

And it was so so BAD. The climax was at the traffic light at the Ekkamai junction. The traffic light didn't move. Stick to the red color. well, it did blinked for several seconds, but it seems didn't affects the lines. First 10 minutes, 20 minutes, the passenger started boring. When I saw the lines before usm WOW as far as I can see Petchburi road it was full of cars.

At that time I had some snacks with me. So while waiting I ate them. I thought to got off and change bus, but it would be the same. It was not the bus's broblem, it's bec…
