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.

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…Continue

There are so common things between families despite different…Continue

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…Continue
