  • INDONESIA EARTHQUAKE: Sizable aftershocks are likely to be felt along Sumatra's west coast for the next two weeks following Wednesday's quake, a local media report says. Many people are still sleeping out in the open, either because their houses have been destroyed or because they are too scared to return home in case of further quakes. More than 20 people have died and over 100 have been injured. Aftershocks have triggered activity in three volcanoes in the area, according to the head of the country's volcanological survey. But he said there was no risk of an eruption despite signs of magma movement.

    Indonesia quake update (Reuters)

    INDONESIA EARTHQUAKE: Thousands of Sumatrans are camping out in makeshift shelters or tents, two days after a massive earthquake struck the Indonesian island. More than 40 powerful aftershocks have triggered a series of tsunami warnings in Indian Ocean countries, and international aid agencies are rushing to see what they can do, but there are still no reports of widespread casualties in the quake-affected area of West Sumatra. Reuters pictures show Indonesians treating survivors and gathering up pieces of their shattered homes.

    wishing us all Ramadhan Mubarak

    hari pertama puasa niii :D
    after my not so meaningful Ramadhan last year, I started this one with a hope that it wouldn't suck as the last one -.- altho pas Eid-nya menyenangkan :)

    dan di awal puasa, semakin MENYADARI klo puasa d sini susah :P
    klo di Indo, kita puasa bersama.. sahur bersama.. buka bersama..
    di sini? people are just doing their thing just like any other day :D
    ya tetep makan, ya tetep being emotional, ya tetep being pissed off at each other, making wars.. ck ck ck

    but of course I shouldn't let those things let me down. Anggaplah itu challenge :D test for faith. Now its kinda funny coz i always question my faith n suddenly now is the month to prove my loyalty/belief to that faith.

    i'm still in doubt, yes. not to the Almighty Entity or the Truest Religion. I'm in doubt of myself. Will I ever comply myself as His Ummah.

    and yesterday night my Dad sent me an SMS asking "Why do we have to observe Shaum in the month of Ramadhan? What is the objective of our fasting?". I replied with a long story on how kind Allah is and that Ramadhan is an opportunity to practice self-restraint bla bla bla. And Dad asked, "Yes.. Pretty close, pls refer to something when argueing".

    I was on the tram on my way home, from work, was tired, and now Dad's asking me for a reference.. dang -.-

    yah op kors the answer (I think) can be the Surat Baqarah verse 183

    يٰأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ ٱلصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى
    ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

    'O those who believe, the fasts have been enjoined upon you as were enjoined upon those before so that you be God-fearing.'

    So simply, because we are believers, and fasting means to really abstain from committing sins, and this by increasing our fear to God.

    dan self-restraint itu susah :P it means that I should not:
    * whine
    * complain
    * jajan2 (duh td otw k kantor kebayang2 coffee company.. bagels n beans.. sanday sandwiches.. wok to walk.. wagamama.. innocent smoothies... hiks)
    * blow off quickly
    * think of ways to make other ppl miserable

    dan yg paling susah..
    * procrastinating

    it's almost like what i'm doing now.. :p

    anywy, it's also interesting that when I typed 'puasa' on Technorati, the first 10 blog post results are from Malaysia.. So I guess Malaysian bloggers are still in the lead than Indonesians :D ayooo let's kick their butt! ee.. whoops.. no bad thoughts.. shoo shoo..

    ah ya.. kerja kerja..
    buat yg menunaikan ibadah puasa.. good luck n sterkte! heheh

    UPDATE: Thoughts and prayers to those who are affected by the quake in Sumatra

    Factory Girl

    Factory Girl is a relatively new movie (released Feb 2007 in the U.S. n Europe) - tp ga ingert klo pernah ada iklannya :D

    it's a movie about a girl called Edie (played by Sienna Miller -exnya Jude Law), a movie prop/friend of the famous Andy Warhol (yup, that famous contemporary artist.. played by Guy Pearce). For me watching it was a reminiscence of the glam world of the 80's. The movie is centered on Edie and her relationship of Warhol's art community/groupie. Warhol in this movie was on his way to fame, and he has "compounded" some people in one place called the factory. A place where, like Andy and Edie said it, people can be themselves. This includes having sex n doing drugs whenever, wherever they want. Andy also at that time started to make movies. Underground/cult movie where it has no plot, and no edits as well. So Andy basically have people to sit down and talk about themselves, and audience can hear Andy's/Chuck's (Andy's second-director in charge) voice directing the person/asking questions in the background. (Semi-documentary kind of). Most of the time Edie is the star of Andy's movie, telling her life-stories, yg emg complicated (and glamorous).

    Helped by her good-natured personality, beauty and lifestyle she shortly becomes the icon and eye candy for Warhol & Co. Edie was then nicknamed 'poor little rich girl. Like today's Paris Hilton, Edie was a daughter of a local millionaire. But less fortunate, she was the victim of his father's infidelities and cruelty, she then rebelled, went to art school and then splurged herself to the artist community in New York, where then she meets Warhol. Knp poor? Soalnya she basically just spent spent spent and did not earn money. (Except from his Dad). While Warhol reaped fame and fortune from his movies, Edie has none (well only the fame).

    Like classic fame n fall story of life, Edie then opened herself to cocaine (yes kids, drugs is bad for you). Her life slides downward since then. Well a moment of light came when she met a famous folk singer (Hayden Christensen) -> loosely based on Bob Dylan, named Billy Quinn. He showed her things that are larger than life. In the end of their relationship, "the famous musician" asked her if she wanted to leave The Factory. But of course since at that time her mind was bewildered from cocaine, she refused.

    Since the movie is based on a true story, of course it ends tragically. Edie died a young age (28) from a drug overdose. Jadi saya harap neither Lindsay Lohan nor Amy Winehouse would further waste their talent to drug-addiction :p

    this was originally written last night before i'm going to bed.. on my new phone :p

    The problem with myself has always came down to one line: I sometimes just don't know what I want in my life. Even if I know, sometimes it's not specific enough, or I have no extra motivation to achieve it.

    I am not a competitive nor an ambitious person. If I don't get things my way, I'd compromise. That and I always said to myself, nothing really matters. That sometimes life is just a big joke. That God granted me life just to make me realise that it's not worth it. (Yezz.. only the afterlife matters... why do we have to be here anyway?)

    Plus, my sense of inferiority really hinders me from really wanting to achieve anything. (I am the so-called under achiever :p)

    Adding to that, it's been always hard for me to commit to anything, to anyone, even to myself. Bad for relationship, I know. so that's why I think less of myself, of what I want, and have this "if he's happy then I'm happy" thought in my head. which is wrong :p

    What if that i wont find out what I'm good at for the rest of my life? My parents wont be always here to defend me. I don't want to be those mid-forty who is still complaining how shitty my life is.

    Shit it's just because of the rolling stones show in mtv n watching factory girl. there was this guy, Russel, on the show that really reminds me of myself. He has a lot of talents but he also tends to screw everything up by being disrespectful to his job (which solely because he disrespect himself).

    The factory girl is a movie. will review it later :p

    Ruben once offered me to do "something that i like" in between my overwhelming tasks :p And i was completely baffled, lost for word coz hv no clue what it would be :D

    But well I think I'd offer myself to work on our website since it really needs a lot of updating.
