Birds of the air

Look at the birds in the sky.
They don't plant or harvest or gather food into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
You are more valuable than they are, aren't you?

in·con·sid·er·ate (in′kən sidər it)
  1. Now Rare insufficiently considered; ill-advised
  2. without thought or consideration for others; thoughtless; heedless
Listen to the radio and googling i found this:

Ada suatu penelitian terhadap ciri-ciri suatu bangsa. Ada yang gentlemen (Inggris), menghargai waktu (Jerman), disiplin (Jepang -- kalau tidak salah), dll ... Tiba giliran orang Indonesia, ciri yang menonjol adalah : INCONSIDERATE. Artinya, tidak peduli terhadap kepentingan orang lain. Wow ? Kok jauh terbalik ya dengan doktrin para guru, orang tua teman, penatar P4 waktu aku masih sekolah ? Katanya bangsa Indonesia adalah bangsa yang ramah, santun, gotong-royong, tolong-menolong ?

63 years Indonesia Independent Day

There are 363 pinang ready to be climb today in ancol.

It was supposed to start at 13.00 so the game can appear live on national tv.

But a lot of the contestant break the rules and start climbing whenever they like.

By 13.00 most of the pinang are already empty.

The rules are made to be broken, is that the way of living in Indonesia?

Self Portrait

12 things to photograph before you die
1. Self portrait will be number one list

I'll take self portrait in the future

A self-portrait may be a portrait of the artist, or a portrait included in a larger work, including a group portrait. Many painters are said to have included depictions of specific individuals, including themselves, in painting figures in religious or other types of composition not intended to depict the actual persons as themselves.
