Help from God

This month is very exciting for me. Exciting because of so many uncertainty big or small.
Small things resulted from a decision I made at the end of last month. Big things are the things that I prayed for long time and still not see anything now, in fact things going worse. The exciting part is that I already promised to God that I want to experience miracle or supra natural things in my life, big or small.

Talking about 'small things'. I have set aside a portion budget for this month's visa extension. I don't know why this month so many expenses : unplanned but all come together so I lack of money for small things. A condition I believe many of my friends in Bangkok never experience it...

This week it's really a test for me. I have a portion of money but I do not want to use it other than for visa extension, but I really don't have other source now. The other source usually I have, for this month has been idle because of the busy-ness of my student. I'm sure …

Over React

Two weeks ago.
Too shameful .. memalukan banget..

I live in a room with a shared balcony area which is also used for (cloth) drying area.
It happened two or three times that some body(s) has accidentally took and not return (stolen??) a piece or two of my cloth. There was a new shirt given by a friend as a birthday present ... sigh sigh ...

So two weeks ago, I went home from office only to find that the whole laundry of mine which I put on my private area near my room: all disappeared! I was tired of something I couln't remember it now, so I search to the common area in case somebody has moved them, but no. So I went down to the maid's room but she wasn't there. Then I saw there were 2 boys, so I asked them if they knew about my cloths and that all of them were disappeared. Fortunately or unfortunately one of them can understand one or two words of English so with the help of non verbal language which I insisted to show them the place I hung my clothes and other things until t…

A New Challenge or Opportunity ?

This month many surprises has come to me.

Begin with a bad news, but turn out to be a good thing : I have think about it and realize that I am not ready yet for that big step in my life ...

A tiny new thing I try but I don't if it will be my way in the future.

Another news is I might get an opportunity to work at another country, at Vietnam. So I've searched any information about Vietnam: housing, food, living cost, transportation, safety etc. I have some rough picture ... it's quite not like here in Bangkok, a little bit more like Jakarta but just in smaller scale of the city size ... Now I'm waiting information from them. Wish me luck ...

Will come back with more info ..

Beautiful Indonesian Passport

I just renew my passport in June 2008.
As the consequence I need to report to the bank, immigration bureau and other institution I haven't thought at ...
When I brought my passport with me at office to do all the process a friend a Burmese saw the passport and his comment: this Indonesian passport is very nice, very good quality (yes, the identity page is water proof with the paper covered with a sealed dove plastic) ... And when he opened all the pages he said the design, the color and the paper are very nice compared to their passport ... WOW!!

I just complained about the first page of my passport which is handwritten not machine typing, which may cause problems in certain countries' immigration check points as what I read/heard from friends ... but now this comments really really make me glad and proud of my Indonesia
