Endra Lost His iPod

Pretty sad. Endra lost his iPod at Plaza Semanggi, friday night. He attended to a farewell party held by a Korean staff from the office. After the party was over, he stop by at a bakery to buy some sweet-breads, only to find that he had lost his iPod. The front pocket of his packback had been half-opened and the iPod ...; there's no iPod there! Only the earphone and the USB cable. Uh, cool iPod, where are you? (Meanwhile, I have an MP3 player, which I got for free by buying a printer. But, it's very far, far away compared with the iPod.)

Welcome o Ramadan!

We welcome Ramadan, the holy month, to fast as Allah prescribed to us, and to improve our good deeds. May, after Ramadan, we become a person anew, until we meet the next Ramadan. Insya Allah.

Al Baqara: 183-185
O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you, as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint,-

(Fasting) for a fixed number of days; but if any of you is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed number (should be made up) from days later. For those who can do it (with hardship), is a ransom, the feeding of one that is indigent. But he that will give more, of his own free-will,- it is better for him. And it is better for you that ye fast if ye only knew.

Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur'an, as a guide to mankind, also clear signs for guideance and judgement (between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if any one is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulities. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify Him in that he He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful.

M.H Shakir translation from

I apologize for my wrong-words or my wrong-doing. Happy fasting for those who fast during Ramadan. May Allah accept our ibadah. Amen.

Black Birthday

It started with rising of gasoline price at the turn of day and ended with bombs blasting in Bali at night. Very pathetic!
