Do you remember one of my posts about Flood in Jakarta?

Well, last Friday, we got news that our salary was deducted because we were absent from work even when it was because of the flood. I was so disappointed.

I was speechless when I checked my bank account to find half of million (in indonesian rupiah) was not there. I felt…. 😦

I stumbled upon this clip on youtube. It did not help much, but it helped indeed.

In awe
