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.

Spritually bullied at Christmas season

leave a comment »

So today, is the 8th of December 2015. I felt spiritually bullied. In Spain, today is a public holiday because Spain celebrates The Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

It is celebrating the solemn belief in the Immaculate Conception of theBlessed Virgin Mary. It is celebrated on December 8, nine months before the feast of the Nativity of Mary, which is celebrated on September 8. It is one of the most important Marian feasts celebrated in the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church celebrated worldwide. (source: wiki)

I perfectly understand that people dont share the same belief, but in a group where I am in, people mock, ridicule, and make joke on this day. I felt so.. so sad. Been living in the country where Islam is the majority belief, I have never felt spiritually bullied like today. What did Jesus do to them that they do this to him?

#savehajilulung

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 »
