Person Of The Year 2010 : Mark Zuckerberg

For connecting more than half a billion people and mapping the social relations among them, for creating a new system of exchanging information and for changing how we live our lives, Mark Elliot Zuckerberg is TIME's 2010 Person of the Year. Congratulations! What an inspiring man and story!

Temple Grandin

Spending my Christmas's holiday with go around the city and watching this movie, it started when I read Josh Groban status on his Facebook, which imply that he recommend to watch this movie, Temple Grandin. I was curious what of kind movie it is then I started to looking for and I found it, I also read Temple Grandin's biography and it's really inspiring. She is an amazing individual that beat the odds. Dr. Temple Grandin, animal scientist, author, and autism self-advocate, has been included in the 2010 Time 100: Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People Autism, people who most affect our world. What an inspiring story! Geezzzz, I have teary eyes and goosebumps. Thank you HBO for playing this movie, so far it wins 7 Emmy Awards, WOW well this movie deserved it.
Staring Claire Danes, Julia Ormond, Catherine O'Hara and David Strathairn, Temple Grandin paints a picture of a young woman's perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism at the time when it was still quite unknown. The film chronicles Temple's early diagnosis; her turbulent growth and development during her school years; the enduring support she received from her mother (Ormond), aunt (O'Hara) and her science teacher (Strathairn); and her emergence as a woman with an innate sensitivity and understanding of animal behavior.
Undaunted by education, social and professional roadblocks, Grandin turned her unique talent into a behavioral tool that revolutionized the cattle industry and laid the groundwork for her successful career as an author, lecturer and pioneering advocate for autism and autism spectrum disorder education.
This visually inventive film offers insights into Grandin's world, taking the audience inside her mind with a series of snapshot images that trace her self-perceptions and journey from childhood through young adulthood to the beginning of her career, and beyond.
Directed by Mick Jackson, with a screenplay by Christopher Monger and William Merritt Johnson, Temple Grandin is based upon the books 'Emergence' by Temple Grandin and Margaret Scariano and 'Thinking in Pictures' by Temple Grandin. The HBO Films presentation is executive produced by Emily Gerson Saines, Gil Bellows, Anthony Edwards and Dante Di Loreto, Paul Lister, Alison Owen; Scott Ferguson produces.
Great job for Claire Danes, playing her role as Temple Grandin and it's very good appearance, extraordinary talent. This movie teach me that God working in his incredible way, use our weakness/odds to show us there's nothing impossible with him. To God to be glory!


Just watching this movie last Wednesday with my friend, Victor. In my opinion, nothing special about the movie story but I really like and enjoy the movie visual effect, it's cool especially when Sam fight against his enemy, it's good visual. The movie story about Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), 27 years old, haunted by the causes of the loss of his father, Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), a mysterious man known as the designer of the world's leading video game. When Sam finds a strange signal being sent from the game's dingdong Flynn, he went into a world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. In 2107, with the help Quorra (Olivia Wilde), Sam and Kevin started the journey of life and death through-visual digital universe created by Kevin stunning, with vehicles and weapons that have never been created, and ruthless criminals who tried to prevent them to run themselves from the world.

Why Should Santa Get All the Attention?

As I read this article from YMIBlogging and watching the music video, I'm in the line with tears in my eyes. Thanks for the reminder that Jesus is the reason we celebrate CHRISTmas!! We should reflect the true meaning of Christmas, why Jesus should be born into the world? Because of YOU, because of His unconditional love, yes We are the reason! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
Read this article below! Written by Tracy Phua, 23, Singapore.
As I walked into a mall one evening, I noticed a sign that signaled the arrival of a Christmas tradition loved by both kids and shopping malls alike. The signage announced that good ol’ jolly Santa Claus is coming to town and to this particular mall! It got me thinking about my own childhood, and how much I used to enjoy Christmas because it allowed me to ask Santa for whatever presents I wanted. As time went by, so did my fascination with Santa. I came to know who the true Giver at Christmas was.

The custom of giving presents at Christmas stems from the account of the wise men bringing gifts to baby Jesus, namely: frankincense, gold and myrrh—gifts usually awarded to kings! And not surprisingly, they were given to Jesus Christ, the King of kings.

As the Magi presented the lavish gifts, an even more precious gift was given to us during that fateful event—the birth of Immanuel. The words of Isaiah 7:14 foretold this, saying, “Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a Son and will call Him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’).” This miracle came to pass and was recorded for us in Matthew 1:23. Therefore, we celebrate.

Amidst the shopping and eating this festive season, let us not miss seeing Jesus as a song by Becky Kelly aptly asks: “Where’s the line to see Jesus? Is He here at the store? If Christmas time is His birthday why don’t we see Him more?”
Song and Lyrics by Steve Haupt & Chris Loesch

Christmas time was approaching
Snow was starting to fall
Shoppers choosing their presents
People filling the mall

Children waiting for Santa
With excitement and glee
A little boy tugged my sweater
Looked up and asked me

Where's the line to see Jesus?
Is He here at the store?
If Christmas time is His birthday
Why don't we see Him more?

As I stood in amazement
At this message profound
I looked down to thank him
He was no where around

The little boy at the mall
Might as well have had wings
As the tears filled my eyes
Thought I heard him sing

Where's the line to see Jesus?
Is He here at the store?
If Christmas time is His birthday
Why don't we see Him more?

Where's the line to see Jesus?
He was born for me
Santa Claus brought me presents
But Christ gave His life for me

In the blink of an eye
At the sound of His trump
We'll all stand in line at His throne
Every knee shall bow down
Every tongue will confess
That Jesus Christ is Lord

(Repeat Chorus)

Where's the line?
Where's the line?
Where's the line for the Lord?

Untung Ada Sepak Bola

I've goosebumps and teary eyes when I read this article "Untung Ada Sepak Bola" from Kompas. It's so true, thank you Football because giving oasis for this country while facing various kinds of crisis especially our politic system, our government, tax mafia, disasters, etc. Hope our team can do their best to serve this country. Go Timnas Go, for our beloved country, INDONESIA! 
Puluhan ribu suporter Tim Nasional Indonesia saat beranjak pulang seusai menonton pertandingan putaran pertama semifinal Piala AFF 2010 antara Indonesia melawan Filipina di Stadion Utama Gelora Bung Karno, Senayan, Jakarta Selatan, Kamis (16/12/2010). Indonesia berhasil mengalahkan Filipina berkat gol semata wayang Christian Gonzales pada menit ke-32 babak pertama.

"Sepak bola bermanfaat bagi terapi membangkitkan kembali semangat nasionalisme"

Syukurlah ada sepak bola. Sepak bolalah yang menjadi penyelamat sekaligus penyemangat, penghiburan sekaligus pengharapan. Sepak bola memberikan hiburan kepada kita yang akhir-akhir ini dibelit berbagai persoalan. Persoalan politik yang penuh intrik dan ruwet, bencana yang silih berganti, korupsi yang tiada habis-habisnya, harga-harga kebutuhan pokok yang tak terkendali terus naik, akrobat dan drama politik yang memperbodoh kita, perang pernyataan yang tidak bijaksana, dan masih banyak lagi yang membuat kita semua terbelenggu dan kelu. Karena itu, hanya harapan yang pantas diungkapkan kali ini: semoga hiburan itu, sepak bola, dapat sejenak mengistirahatkan kita dari segala kepenatan dan beban hidup yang akhir-akhir ini banyak kita derita, dan lelah. Kita, rakyat, memang lelah. Ibarat orang jalan, kita semua sudah jalan begitu jauh, di jalan yang rusak dan naik turun, tanpa sekali pun istirahat untuk minum. Karena itu, butuh sesuatu yang menyegarkan. Butuh sesuatu yang menyegarkan seperti yang diinginkan ribuan penonton sepak bola yang rela berpanas-panas selama berjam-jam untuk mendapatkan tiket menonton pertandingan antara Indonesia dan Filipina. Dalam sejarah, ”Indonesia” pernah tampil di Piala Dunia 1938 (Perancis), atas nama Dutch East Indies (Hindia Belanda). Timnas waktu itu ditaklukkan Hongaria, 0-6. Dengan sistem gugur, mereka angkat koper. Namun, kita tetap boleh bangga, timnas dikalahkan tim yang menjadi runner-up! Kini kita menunggu prestasi PSSI. Melihat begitu antusiasnya masyarakat memberikan dukungan kepada kesebelasan kita, ini membuktikan bahwa sepak bola bermanfaat bagi terapi membangkitkan kembali semangat nasionalisme. Sementara itu, para pemain bersemangat untuk mempersembahkan kemenangan bagi negara. Tentu ini berkaitan dengan identitas negara dan nasionalisme. Kita juga berharap mampu membangun sikap nasionalisme di bidang ekonomi, politik, pertahanan keamanan, serta pendidikan, dan bidang-bidang lain. Kemenangan di babak semifinal ini memberikan optimisme. Tidak lebih tidak kurang, kita ingin menang. Optimistis, tetapi kita juga harus realistis, yakni menggantungkan dan meletakkan cita-cita setinggi langit, tetapi tetap sadar akan keterbatasan, akan kekurangan dalam tubuh PSSI, dalam sistem kompetisi kita. Pendek kata dalam tubuh dunia persepakbolaan kita. Di atas segalanya, sepak bola adalah hiburan dan kegembiraan. Marilah sesaat kita melupakan keruwetan hidup. Akan tetapi, jangan sampai karena sepak bola, kita terlena dari persoalan fundamental yang menjadi beban bangsa dan negara ini: beban rakyat. Meskipun, secara jujur harus kita akui, kita saat ini membutuhkan katakanlah semacam oase yang menyegarkan.

Acceptable Apology

I've read this article yesterday from Our Daily Journey, written by Jennifer Benson Schuldt and it's touching me, so I copied to my blog, hope you enjoy too and we learn together...
We, the servants of the God of your father, beg you to forgive our sin (v.17)

After fighting with his wife, one man in Saudi Arabia decided to apologize. Unfortunately, his wife had already moved back in with her parents. So he created a banner with his plea for forgiveness printed on it, hung it near his in-laws’ house, and commented, “I hope she will accept my apology and come back home.”

There are lots of ways to say I’m sorry—banners, greeting cards, Web sites, public speeches, or just a simple hand-on-the-shoulder discussion next to the refrigerator. No matter how we express the idea, an acceptable apology should cover some basic points.

First, it’s important to name the offense. Years after Joseph’s brothers sold him as a slave, they sent him this message: “Please forgive your brothers for . . . their sin in treating you so cruelly” (Genesis 50:17). Although they didn’t go into the details of the sale, they did address the heart of the matter, which was their cruelty.

Second, once they established the issue, the brothers focused exclusively on their own wrongdoing. They didn’t remind Joseph of his bratty behavior and superiority complex back when they were growing up. Like the brothers, we should not try to justify our offense by pinning blame on the other person.

Third, sometimes an apology includes taking action to make things right. Joseph’s brothers bowed before him, proclaiming, “Look! We are your slaves!” (Genesis 50:18). This fulfilled a prophetic dream of Joseph’s in which he would reign over his family members (Genesis 37:5-8). The whole situation had come full circle and his siblings’ repentant action was a final act of restitution.

The Bible urges us to “work at living in peace with everyone” (Hebrews 12:14). Sometimes this means giving an acceptable apology—identifying and owning up to our fault and then doing what it takes to made amends for our offense.

NEXT : What should you do if someone refuses to forgive you? How has forgiveness changed your life? 
Joseph is my role model, he's one of my favorite bible figure, I love him and his character, I love to read his history in bible, a man with integrity, pure man, a dreamer, full of compassion, fear of God, etc. Learn from Joseph's brothers, it’s never easy to apologize, isn't? especially if you have to be the first one to say “I’m sorry”, but they did it and the rewards are great, Joseph forgive them because he knows that everything in God's plan to send him to Egypt to save human life, to save God's children. So, let’s all learn to forgive each other as we have been forgiven. And that all begins with sincere heartfelt apologies. Speak now!

I'm forgiven, because you were forsaken
I'm accepted, you were condemned
I'm alive and well, you're spirit is within me
Because you died and rose again

I'm forgiven, because you were forsaken

That you my king would die for me
Amazing love, I know it's true
It's my joy to honor you
Amazing love, how can it be
