Notes: Happy Easter

"He is not here but he is risen. Remember how He spoke to you when He was in Galilee saying "The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and the third day rise again [Luke 24:6-7] - [2013: Oktofani]

Today, Christian families around the world are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ that we know as a Sunday Easter day.

Julie Ackerman Link wrote sin put Jesus to the ultimate test. But His Love endured it, His strength bore it and His power overcame it. Thank yout to Jesus’s death and resurrection, we know beyond  a doubt that win will not and cannot win. He is not here but has risen and lives today.  Happy Easter to all Christian. God bless y’all!

Dressing up in Balinese kebaya and white kook or safari, Balinese women and men were marching down to the nearest temple to say their morning prayer and give their offering. Today, Balinese are celebrating Galungan day.

Galungan is celebrated to remind human beings that we should always fight the battle against the bad habit and evil desires. It is celebrated once in 210 days according to the Balinese calendar.

On Galungan day, usually Balinese decorate their house and their temple. The most striking and noticeable decoration is penjor that they put in front of their house. Penjor is a bamboo pool which is decorated with unhulled rice, coconut leaves and coconut, which represent the nature.

To all my Hindu Balinese friends, Rahajeng nyanggra rahina Galungan lan Kuningan

Notes: I’m Blocked by Karrueche Tran

O geez… I don’t know whether I have to laugh or cry. I was just blocked by Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown ex-girl friend. Why? I think it was because I asked her some kind of ‘offensive’ question via twitter “Why Breezy chose Rihanna and dumped her?” Well, I actually did not mean to be offensive but I knew it would turn it that way somehow.

So last Thursday morning, I was randomly watching video in youtube and found this video of Karrueche made a fun of Rihanna. Based on that video, I found that Karrueche was so mean to Rihanna… So I sent her a tweet

My tweet to Karrueche on 14 March 2013

Who got boyfriend? Who’s single now? Breezy chose Rih. What happened? ; ) “@karrueche Making Fun of @rihanna : http://youtu.be/l_fQSwL8kEo

Ya! Ya! Many of us know that Rihanna was also mean toward her. Remember the rice cake tweet? In the end of the day, they both were so mean toward each other. Pssst…. I did a lot of research on their online war via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook – Geez… women! Why are we cruel toward each other when it comes to love relationship. 

Anyway, after I sent the tweet to Karrueche… somehow I found that I was blocked by Karrueche as I was about going to follow her on twitter. I guess, she just wanna say ‘It ain’t nobody bidnezz’ as Breezy and Riri said it to the world.

I’m actually not a big fans of Rihanna … but I just found it interesting in some ways. Women tend to be cruel to other women when it comes to relationship.  Geez… Why am I writing about it?! It is not an important thing at all.

Sorry, you are blocked!

Sorry, you are blocked!

Frankly I actually have never really been interested with celebrity personal life gossip. I just always found it as rubbish ‘news’ and I don’t really need those kind of news. What do I need it for? Does it have any significant effect for my life? I don’t think. Hence I don’t really care about it.

So why am I even following the latest news about Riri, Breezy and Tran? Why am I even blogging about it? I don’t know.signature

Reflection: Don’t Be Selfish

Let's listen [2010: E O]

Let’s listen [2010: E O]

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind et each esteem others better than himself.  Let each of you look out not only for their own interests but also for the interest of others- Philippians 2: 3-4

When we hold our tongue and listen, we communicate our care. For an open ear speaks volume to a heart that’s in despair – Sper
