And we all know that.

It shocked me that you people chose to take part of what made it mean. Yes. You know what I am talking about. It is about the break up story of Brangelina.

If you are wondering why in the world #savehajilulung is in twitter worldwide trending topic, here are some clues.

A little bit context for non indonesian readers, Indonesia is in 118 world’s most corrupt country from 174 countries listed. Not an achievement. Not proud at all. And just later last year Indonesia appointed a new Jakarta Governor. He is previously the vice governor who is now taking role as the governor since the previous governor is elected as the President of Republic of Indonesia, Jokowi, people call him.

Now this new governor Basuki Tjahja Purnama or “Ahok” is now standing in the white zone fighting corruption in any possible ways. He is of minority race, chinese, and he is of minority religion, christian, to top of that he is expressive, hence all the fuss. Yesterday, he went on a dialogue with the Jakarta’s House of Representative accommodated by the Ministry of Domestic Affairs to discuss about the suspected-to-be-manipulated Jakarta 2015 budget, note on 12,000,000,000,000 IDR (12 trillions just incase i miss some zeros there, converse to your own currency if you please) for UPS allocation fund for high schools in Jakarta. To make the story short, the dialogue did not work as intended to be. The “fighting” parties are Ahok versus Haji Lulung (Haji is a moslem title).

But why is it trending? Read the rest of this entry »

I’m 27 years old and I’ve never had a boyfriend. I’ve only dated once but that didn’t go so well. I’ve prayed and I’ve prayed and I’ve asked God for my significant other but honestly sometimes I feel as if God doesn’t hear me. Which then causes my heart turmoil especially when I see other girls getting married and dating all the time. It just makes me feel like there is something wrong with me or I maybe I’m unworthy of someone else. I just really need some peace in this area or my life.

Hey dear sister, I know this is an especially painful season for you right now, but please allow me the grace to share a few thoughts with you.

1) Singleness is not a season of waiting.

I’ve said this before, but: You’re not waiting for a man.  A man is not…
