Yes, I laugh a lot, cried a lot, love a lot, hate a lot, bitch a lot, complained a lot, joke a lot, yet only write a small portion of it. Oh well.

Indonesia Unite


Unity, is something that we Indonesians always long for, yet we never thought that it would take such horrible atrocity to unite and bonded our hearts. The Jakarta bombings last Friday has woken us up after years of peace and bomb-free neighborhood.

I myself never could understand why there are people who hate this beautiful country, so hateful that they unleash such terrors, over, over and over again.

This country is too beautiful to hate, too precious to be left behind.
Right or wrong my country, this is my Indonesia.

We gain our freedom trough countless battles, our forefathers shed blood, sweat and tears to proclaim independence, unlike some country that has being given freedom in a silver platter.

Long before the Japanese claimed they invented Tempeh, people in various kampongs across Indonesia create Tempe on a daily basis. Not to mention the Batik, the Keris, and hundreds of other cultural treasures to be explored.

We survived 3,5 centuries of imperialism, 3.5 years of famine,and 32 years of political oppression. We are one tough country to beat, so yes we are certainly NOT AFRAID.

thanks ya say
tapi menurut pendapatku tulisan seperti ini justru penting kalau ditulis dalam bahasa Inggris, supaya semua orang yang tidak mengerti bahasa Indonesia bisa mengerti tentang Indonesia.

Kita musti tunjukkin ke dunia bahwa kita bangsa Indonesia tidak takut dan bersatu melawan terorisme.

Oya, kalo sempet coba cek goodnewsfromindonesia.com
itu semua pake bhs Inggris loh :))

cheers!
