Adam Levine - Lost Stars


Lately so in love with this song, hahaha.

I started doing stuffs with a friend... It had actually been planned since end of May 2015 but we stopped (maybe due to our quite heavy workloads that time) and we continued again several months ago. 

So happy that today we have our very first order^^. I'm not that new in the world of online shopping so handling orders should be a common thing but still today I am so happy to a point that I become alay.

I am just grateful. Grateful for things.

Several days ago I went to church cell group and we talked about many things, one of them that have been my contemplation for long is about vision. When we live without vision, we are just surviving, a thing which mere animals also do. But I don't know what my vision is. We had small discussion and I found out that they too haven't known their visions yet. 

It had to be searched by ourselves. I thank God for having a chance to do something new.

Lately I am quite galau (early period time as always) and I kinda lost control of my tongue. I talked some meaningless things.

And I learned about forgiving myself. Teenager me often felt guilty for stupid mistakes I made. Now I learn to not overthink (though I still do it sometimes). I am grateful that I watched Philip Mantofa's preaching video about Ecclessiates chapter 1.

Living a life is writing a book with a permanent ink and no eraser. 

I keep doing mistakes and bad things happen, but God teach me to have a right response for everything. Sometimes I win yes, but sometimes I lost, too.

I may have not found my vision in this world yet but I have clearly stated a very last goal of my life. I really want that the time I died and meet Him in any way I can't rightly imagine, He'd say to me, 'well done, kid!'

No Internet Connection [GINTAMA VERSION]


No Internet Connection [GINTAMA VERSION] was the very first video I made, woo hoo! \ (^///^) /
The process of making it taught me something called 'EFFORT' hahaha. Hours in front of laptop to produce this mere twelve seconds short video. However, I am very satisfied with this one.

I upload this one in my Instagram, (@limliyoo) too.

The Keep Changing World

This caption is not related at all with the post, I even forgot what the kanji means
I realized something today that the world is keep changing, and the acceleration of the change is now so fast. We can't use a lame method to encounter current problem. It's both scary and challenging at the same time, yes? What a dynamic world I am living in.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.

History



Lately I'm so into history, to be more specific, history about church, bible and humanity. I read about the Ark of Covenant, Nimrod, Queen of Sheba, descendants of Shem, Ham and Japheth, Roman empire, Deutero Kanonika, Crusade (both from Christian and Moslem's points of views), Medieval age, Isa Al-masih through the eyes of Moslems, and the list goes on.

I read them on any website I found in Google, I'm not really sure about their validity, I don't know which one is real history and which one is not but I enjoyed it.

In Angels and Demons, it was told that there are people learning Science to prove God's existence rather than glorify Science over God. In other words, if some people may go to church to look for God, these scientists look for God by learning Science. Kinda there are many ways to Rome. Science learns about nature, which was created by God, yes? Well, everybody has their own point of view.

For me, reading history, though I don't really know the validity, leads me to murmur: How great Thou art. For me, it's quite like looking at tonight's very beautiful night sky, with three quarter bright moon with rainbow colored halo around, some sparkling stars, and some greyish moving clouds to see. It was very beautiful though I don't know the exact numbers of distance from earth to the moon, I don't really understand what's the components of clouds, why they're moving, why there were halo around the moon, why tonight sky was so bright and some so little stars were there to see, I don't understand many things.

If I hadn't been born after Isaac Newton, I might not have known about gravity and must have wondered why thsose balls were floating there, Now that I know about gravity (well thanks to Isaac Newton) doesn't lower the way I look at the world. It still made me murmur... How great Thou art...

Just because one can't see... doesn't mean nothing's there.
Just because one can't hear... doesn't mean nothing's there.
Just because one can't touch... doesn't mean nothing's there.
Just because one can't smell... doesn't mean nothing's there.
Just because one can't understand... doesn't mean nothing's there.

How great Thou art.

What Happened This Wednesday

Last evening I had an appointment with church friends to go to a Praise, Worship, and Unction Service. It was started at 6 p.m. so I stayed late at office till about 5.30 p.m. before going there. I realized that my fuel had gone beyond E and I recklessly didn't try to search for a petrol station but just went. 'It will be enough,' I said to myself.

Unfortunately, it did run out of gas in the middle of my journey. To be detail, in a railway junction near Jl. Braga. I coudn't turn my motorcycle on. I took it to the left and saw a security about twenty meters in front of me. I left my motorcycle then went there and asked him where the nearest gas station I could reach. He told me to turn left, go ahead, turn right, a suggestion that sounded pretty far. I boarded out my motorcycle to him and walk there. And it was really far, hahaha. If I hadn't been insecure about leaving my motorcycle to a stranger and a fear of not finding the petrol station, I would have enjoyed my walk. I passed through Crowne Hotel, Rasa Restaurant and some others I didn't really pay attention at. 

Thankfully I got it, premium worthed IDR 13,000, in an IDR 2,000 plastic bag. I got lost on my way back, oh man, I am really suck in memorizing road. If I got lost in my way to, we say, Istana Plaza, I can just ask a random pedestrian where it is and they will show me the way. Or google map will help. But it's the place where I took my motorcycle, how I can ask others for help? 'Excuse me Ma'am, do you know where I took my motorcycle?' Sounds silly. I don't even know neither the exact street name nor the building name. But finally I found it.

The security helped me to pour the premium into my tank. I had a difficulty to turn my motorcycle on and again he helped me. I was about forty minutes late to the service and I didn't even meet my friends. But this man, he was such a big help!

I want to give IDR 10,000 to him as sign of gratitude but he rejected it (don't know whether he did sincerely want to help and need nothing in return or it was too little that it hurt his pride to receive it) I don't care which one, I do really thank him for his help. We were total strangers and I have even forgotten his face (I'm also suck in memorizing a person's face in first meeting) but his help touched me.

I don't care what his religion is. Who his God is, either. For a situation like what I encountered, they don't matter, his action by helping me who need help, that's one that matters. What's the point in being so close with your God through daily prayers, Sunday service etc, but neglected His great commandment to love each other by closing your eyes when you see people need your help? I was both touched and slapped by this security's action.

...And to be more careful about my fuel meter, too. It's been my third time running out of gas in the middle of journey, hahaha.

My brother sent us a sadistic video through Whatsapp. It showed some African people beat other fellow African people abusively and burnt them alive. I sent them to my friends and we had a small discussion about it. It led me to think: Why. What's the purpose of doing such an inhumane act. I browsed about history of Crusade and medieval witch massacre. I even looked for instruments of torture they used. It was all brutally cruel. I found out that I am now living in a truly peaceful place and peaceful era compared to those I had just read. The cruelty I saw in this video might be pretty common during that time. It got me trembling.

A Quick Meeting in A Genocide

A Quick Meeting in A Genocide

Gintama has poisoned me to a point of which I am now deeply obsessed with anything related to Gintoki. This time I was just trying to draw for fun and I found out that I drew this random man so similary with young Gintoki, the bloody sword and saggy white outfit.

I do really love Gintama's 1st  and 5th opening song (Pray by Tommy Heavenly6 and Donten by DOES). I played these two songs over and over and over and over and over and over and over again and hasn't gotten bored yet so far. I do really love Gintoki's fighting scene in the clip, he looks so dashing and valiant there , really mezmerizing.
