13 December: Singapore to Manila to Los Angeles

Ready

Everything was set by 10 am and we called taxi to go to the airport. Noe was really excited about going and he kept saying "wee wee wee", which means, airplane (and cars, and boats).

In Changi

Gandhi's View

One religious leader chose to "help a women through legalized sexual encounters" a.k.a. polygamous marriage. This religious leader claims to have chosen the "difficult path" of polygamous marriage.

Another leader, his name is Gandhi, chose to help mankind, simply by practicing what he preached consistently and with integrity. And he has succeeded to do so for the whole mankind of his era.

And quoted below is his view on sex and marriage. He too has chosen the difficult path, that is to spread out love to other human being while restraining his lust and desires. See the difference? So which stance would you respect more?

From The Mind of Mahatma

Lifehacking - Domestic Waste Management

For a developed country like singapore, public consciousness of waste management is not as progressive as developed western countries. Sure Singapore is a clean country, but that's because people are paid to keep everything clean rather than a deeply rooted clean culture. Heck, people don't even clean up their own trays in fast food restaurant. Also, not many people separate their wastes, nor do they know about recycling, despite the availability of recycling scheme in Singapore. Perhaps Singapore needs government campaign in recycling. Regardless, Singapore's cleanliness and waste management culture is better than Indonesia. But I'll talk about Indonesia's waste management culture in another blog entry.

An Apology Body and Soul

In the spirit of Idul Fitri, we'd like to wish a happy lebaran day and we'd like to apologize body and soul (direct translation of Indonesian congratulatory phrase).

Idul Fitri, in Indonesia, is the day where everybody offer apology to each other for the sins and mistakes that has been done over the past year. Idul Fitri day is believed to be an atonement day, a rebirth. If a person is a computer, he is reformatted, and is given a chance to start with a blank hard disk space for the upcoming year.

Ten Years Online

It has been more than ten years since I use internet, and now it has been one of my basic needs. Now I can't imagine being somewhere with no internet connection, I may experience severe withdrawal syndrome. It's really cute to look back at how internet was like more than ten years ago.

Blissful Beverage

When my son latches hungrily onto my bosom and drinks from my body, I always discover a feeling that I have never felt before. It is a blissful feeling, full of love and joy. Time stops. Relaxed. Giving and taking unconditionally to each other. Embrace. Calm. And we look at each other closely and smile. Sometimes he touches my nose and lips too, playfully, curiously.

And when he is finished, he looks drunk and contented. Intoxicated by mother's milk. A big burp will follow. Happy!

He is so lovely! And what a beautiful feeling, breastfeeding is.

And it is a great painkiller for him too. The only thing that can soothe his feeling after a painful fall, is my milk!

damn haze

Damn haze. The whole house is coughing and I have sore throat with slightly runny nose and sneezing (allergic reaction). Noe became fussy and lethargic. The blockage in my nasal area caused disturbing headache. ARRGH!! And we don't have air conditioning system at home, so we had to keep the window open or else we would be steamed inside the house. And all Indonesia does is apologize without doing anything.
