Quickie

Hey guys!! Just wanna update real quick, well it's Sunday, almost the end of April. May is super near which means... MY PAPA'S BIRTHDAY IS REAL SOON! Too bad I can't be with him there in Bali :(

Anyways, I'm still in my mid-term exam week. Yes I know, it is entering the third week. Very very long. But there's nothing I can do about it. So just gotta go with it. The last 3 subjects of the examination are Management, Information System Development, and Management Information System. So wish me all the luck! Yihii. By the way, on Friday I asked my lab assistant about my Practical Information System Development exam results, and it turned out pretty great. Didn't really meet my expectations, but real near! Just short of 1 point. HAHA.

Oh, and I am pretty sure I am right now pretty much being tested by God in so many ways. Discipline, humility, integrity, many more. And I'm telling you, it ain't easy. I was actually awaken in my sleep that time, and thoughts came to mind. It's all coming down to making me rely on God more. How I lately feel kinda left out, forgotten and stuff. All those things is currently teaching me how to put all my hopes in God. But I'm sure all those teachings are worth it :')

Anyways, some crazy shots form this afternoon after church. Please read the instruction (↓) first! :P

LAUGHING CURRENTLY PROHIBITED
Hahaha


Well I guess that's all for now. Thank you for reading! God bless y'all ~ 

I have a DREAM!

I have this dream of owning a cafe or a restaurant. I will surely make this dream come true.  Why cafe or restaurant? Because I myself have a really big interest in food and everything related to it.
Cafe? Restaurant? Imagine all these things...

A vintage cafe

Earl Grey or English Breakfast Tea

Or maybe you'd prefer some cappuccino

Rain drops

Books

And pets that you can bring along

Quality-chats


I want to create a place where people can get nearly all of those that I have mentioned above. I want people to have a place that they always go to just to enjoy those blissful moments, as much as I do. Well, here are some ideas that became my inspirations~

Intermezzo

So, I'm shortly here just to tell that I am currently in the middle of my Mid-Term examination! Yes! Scary much, but I'm trying my best to ace it. Pray for me eperibadeeehhh


People change for many reasons. I think mine would be towards self development, beautifying the inner me, and to prepare myself for the awesome future that's ahead of me.

A story worth reading!


Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son ?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you believe in GOD ?
Student : Absolutely, sir.
Professor : Is GOD good ?
Student : Sure.
Professor: Is GOD all powerful ?
Student : Yes.
Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
(Student was silent.)
Professor: You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, young fella. Is GOD good?
Student : Yes.
Professor: Is satan good ?
Student : No.
Professor: Where does satan come from ?
Student : From … GOD …
Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student : Yes.
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
Student : Yes.
Professor: So who created evil ?
(Student did not answer.)
Professor: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who created them ?
(Student had no answer.)
Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?
Student : No, sir.
Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?
Student : No , sir.
Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?
Student : No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.
Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
Student : Yes.
Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.
Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.
Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Professor: Yes.
Student : And is there such a thing as cold?
Professor: Yes.
Student : No, sir. There isn’t.
(The lecture theater became very quiet with this turn of events.)
Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.)
Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?
Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, well you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?
Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man ?
Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?
Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing.Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.
Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)
Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?
(The class was in uproar.)
Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?
(The class broke out into laughter. )
Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?
(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)
Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.
Student : That is it sir … Exactly ! The link between man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.
P.S. I believe you have enjoyed the conversation. And if so, you’ll probably want your friends / colleagues to enjoy the same, won’t you?
Forward this to increase their knowledge … or FAITH.
By the way, that student was EINSTEIN.

So, do you have faith? 

BeBe & CeCe Winans - Grace

Truly blessed by this song!




Heaven knows I’ve done wrong; mercy helped me see I’ve been living a lie.

And while writing this song, thinking ‘bout Your goodness I started to cry.
Yes, oh oh oh grace; what would I do without grace (do without grace)



Hide behind a painted smile; you lash out and sing while you’re spiritually down, yeah
There’s no need to sit in denial; He knows all about it and understands why (yes He does)
Oh oh oh grace (oh grace oh grace); what would I do without grace
Oh oh oh grace; where would I be, where would I be without grace

How can you love me still when I’ve done wrong (grace)
And how can I make it through this angry storm (oh grace)
Say oh oh oh grace; what would I do without Your grace
Oh oh oh grace; where would I be without grace (where would I be without grace)



What can make me whole in my soul (grace grace)
What can wash my sin (grace)
Say grace; what would I do without Your grace (couldn’t make it)



Tell you what lately I’ve learned; He picks me up whenever I’m down
(Have you ever been down? I’ve been down.)
Nothin’ I’ve done or can do can take away this love, this love that I’ve found
Oh oh oh grace (grace); what would I do, what would I do without grace
Oh oh oh grace; where would I be without grace



Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I’m found, I was blind but now I see
That’s why we say amazing; that’s why we sing amazing grace (I can’t move without it)
I can’t live without Your grace; thank You for Your grace

Almost a year~

Hey everybody! How are you all doing? Okay I've got some things to blabber about today, hopefully not that much of a complaint :(

So first, as you all might probably know already, I have moved to Jakarta for almost a year now. And trust me, it has been a very very tough year for me! In the time span of one year, I have only went back home twice, while my other friends have travelled back three times. Those days were very very envious, like at some point I had wished that I was Richie Rich's sister and can just go home whenever I want too. But at the same time I knew that it was not easy (not impossible though). During my first year I also met and experienced many things, all the good and bad things. It somehow made me realize that this life is seriously mean! Like how we say people change, I didn't really see that back then. But here, in college life, in J-Town, where they people are more hardcore, I see that really happen. It's kinda disappointing at first, but then hey, this is the world we live in. People change, I change, what matters is towards where is the change. Hopefully mine is towards righteousness. And it doesn't matter how other people react to it. When react positively to it, then you should be thankful that you're actually walking on the right track. But if they come up with negative critics, my suggestion would most likely be, IGNORE IT! Cause negative critics will always be there in our life, but it's our respond that matters. And believe it or not, it can actually lift us up, if we can respond to it in the right way ;)

Not only that, I also learnt so many things ever since I moved. How many thoughts came to mind regarding lots and lots of things, about my future, about my family, about my personal life, etc. I must say I am learning a looooooot after moving. Not saying that I didn't learn anything back when I was still in Bali, I did, but it's just wasn't that fast compared to the pace of learning here in j-town. To be honestly talking, moving to j-town is very hard thing to do for me. As you all know, I am youngest child in the family, and I've been so attached to and spoiled by my parents so much that even leaving to another town is a very hard thing to do for me. It was exciting at first, I mean to actually experience living outside of Bali, but when it actually happened... IT WAS SO DAMN HARD TO GO THROUGH. And I won't even lie how many times I get homesick. Thankfully right now my sis is still in j-town with me, so at least there's still somebody to look after me. But then as I thought about it again, it was necessary for me to learn how to live independently. One day, I'd have to go out there by myself, trying to make a living out of it. It ain't easy, but it's what I have got to do. And rather than being shock later on, it's better to practice from now on. Cause everything might seem easy when we think about it, but when you actually deal with it... It's a whole lot different thing!

Well, I guess that's all for now. Thanks a lot for spending some time to read guys! Jesus bless y'all :)

Oh, btw. thanks mom for visiting for awhile. Definitely relieved my homesick :p

Pessach Celebration

So yesterday was my church's Pessach Celebration, or as what you may also know as Passover Celebration. The idea of the celebration was like an orchestra concert, and I must say, the music was pretty DOPE yesterday! Thumbs up for Ka Deky (duuuh, that's why he's hired to be Trio Lestari's keyboardist I guess, LOL). Not only him, the other music players were also great.  Not to forget the singers too. I am pretty definitely sure that it was all possible because of God.

I was really honored too, to be able to join this magnificent way of praising God. Eventhough we only had practised twice, but thank God we managed to pull it off pretty good!

Sunday Service Sermon




12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. 13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
Exodus 12:5-7


Passover talks about salvation.


10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

Philippians 3:10-11

We have the rights to be saved! Mengambil kuasa kebangkitan untuk kita menjadi kemenangan.


20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20

We must be able and be willing to pay the price. To be like Jesus.

5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Philippians 2:5-8

If we are close to God, we know what is God like, what kind of things He like. We have to synchronize our thought and feelings with God's thoughts and feelings.

27 For he hath put all things under his feet.
1 Corinthians 15:20

9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils. 10 And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept. 11 And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not. 12 After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. 13 And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them. 14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Mark 16:9-18

Believe and have faith upon the victory God has given to us!

Good Friday Sermon


45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
Matthew 27:45-47


21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
2 Corinthians 5:21

Jesus was crucified not because He sinned, but He was crucified because He replaced us and paid for our sins. Jesus went through all the bad things that human has ever thought of and even those that human has never thought of, worst of it all, to show that we are going through is nothing! We all can go through it because we are with God and that our strength comes from Him. Therefore, never think that your problem is the hardest problem on earth! Keep believing in our Father God, cause even Jesus did.

Passover

Well, Passover is really near and I just wanna share what I had in mind this morning. We all know that we reap what we sow right? Well a thought came to mind, that maybe, once again I say, maybe, we sometimes get the idea of "you reap what you sow" in the wrong way. How? We think of it as a revenge. It's not. We do not intentionally make people reap what they have sowed to us. We do not blame people because they have blamed us before.

Change~

People say, the only constant thing in this world is CHANGE. I might have to agree with that. Why? Because it's true. Even when we're not changing, the world is! It still revolves, seasons change, other people change. And maybe we can stay the same, but that position of stagnancy will definitely make us rot through time. I came to realize this when I was looking through my old pics and found the pics when I just put on my braces (yes! scary daysssss).
Before using braces
My second day with braces!
Around 1-2 months of using braces
December!
Maybe you can't really see the difference in the pictures above, but if you see my teeth straight away, you can actually tell the BIG difference. The first day I put on braces, it looked really really bad, that I was so embarrassed. I thought that my teeth placement were not that bad, but it all became really obvious when I put on braces. But anyways, that's not what I'm trying to say. What I'm trying to say is that, the pace of change is really fast. Look at my teeth for example, in only 6 months, it has changed a lot! So therefore, we should be open to all kinds of changes. It may hurt during the process, but trust me, the end will be good, intact great for us! :)

Andrew Garcia - Crazy (Acoustic)




Crazy cus I'm falling in love
Falling deeply in love with you
Yeah, its so damn true
Friends say I'm outta my mind
That I shouldn't be with you
But they don't understand

The way I feel for you
Is unlike any other thing
I've ever felt before
But they don't understand
That I'm not crazy
I'm just a man 
Searching for reasons to find you
Over and over again
I'm not crazy, I'm just a man
I'm doing everything that I can

Crazy cus I'm telling the truth
There's nowhere to run
They're telling me that I should find another one
They can say I'm outta my mind
I'll still be your man
They still won't understand

The way I feel for you
Is unlike any other thing
I've ever felt before
But they don't understand
That I'm not crazy I'm just a man
