Writing Challenge: Mothers

HOW I LEARNED READING:

Prior to my school age I used to ask my mother to read story books for me. My mother had just the basic knowledge of reciting Holy Quraan, she also could read small books in our native language. Once she asked me why I would not learn how to read if I was so interested in stories. Then she taught…

My first Short Political Opinion about INDONESIA

Why should other countries be fussy about Indonesian policy related with the excecution? I think, it's not only in Indonesia that has such policy (execution), but also many other countries. Yet, why is it only in Indonesia that this matter become a big problem? Well, since I'm only a citizen, I can't help but just say that IT'S SHAMELESS. It's our internal policy, every country has also their own internal policy. I think other countries shouldn't interfere on it.

Black or White?

In my journey of learning English, I met some white racist people. They think that they are superior because of their white color. My question is " Did you earn it?" Maybe your skin color is white but remember that doesn't possibly mean that you are superior human being. Racist people don't respect other people. As we all know that, human blood can only be in red. Some white people insulted me as being black. I don't have problem with color but I think color or race problem shows you the…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY APRIL !!

I'm not used to write many blogs (I'm not a good blogger nor writer) although I admit I,ve learned from them since I joined here, so I thought it would be a good pretext to write a small one to congratulate to one of my old friends here, the one who opened the online friendship world to me, the one who showed me another kind of friendship, the one who taught me to like other society, lifestyle or different ideas, maybe I'm open minder now :D



Although we've never met each other I… Continue

The Boyhood

Last night I watched a movie named “boyhood”. It was a nice movie which was about a boy named Mason and the ups and downs of his life from his sixth till his eighteenth. By watching this movie you get to live life with him and his family. Besides having some difficulties, I loved those scenes that they spend with their parents happily. There are so common things between families despite different…

It's Not An Adieu

It's been a while since I wrote anything in here. Consciously or otherwise, I've distanced myself from MyEC for a while now. I guess what made me left MyEC more than five years ago had reared its ugly head once again. Back in March, when I came back from a short hiatus due to my health, I logged into MyEC chat room and felt like once again a complete stranger among strangers. It felt like I had nothing much to say, nothing in common with them. The 'mind games' such as trolling and changing…
