This morning, I woke up to the sound of crying kittens (a great way to start the day eh?). I jumped out of bed immediately, to check upon Pilo's kittens. When I opened my door, all of my cats were there: Pilo and her kittens, and Simba. Turned out that the kittens were hungry and crying for their mother. But to my surprise, suddenly Simba walked up to the kittens and it seemed as if he was biting one of them! I was shocked and tried to pull him away from said kitten - but Simba kept coming back to the kittens and tried to bite them again and again.
After waiting for 3 weeks, finally my cat, Pilo, just gave birth to 6 cute kittens. I was so happy and proud of her, as she could give birth to these kittens all by herself. Around 1 AM I found Pilo with her 2 first kitten. The veterinatian told me that Pilo would have 4 kittens. So I went back to sleep, But when I woke up in the morning at 5.30, I found her with more than 4 kittens! Turned out that she's been carrying 6 kittens inside her tummy.
Do you ever think about the good and bad aspects of your personality? Things that your friends or you often talk about?
Do you believe that I was once a rude little girl? The thought of it makes me frown now but yes, that’s kind of true. I’m not saying this because it was something to be proud of, but more to a reflection of myself. It was the old me, the girl who didn’t think about the greater good.
The whole new version of me now always tries to see the good in everything, often literally. Sometimes I even think that I’m stupid to be this way and some of my friends say it is bad to be good all of the time, but I just can’t help it. You know why I always think about the positive things and do good things? Because when I do good things, I feel happy. And I personally think: was it so difficult to do the opposite? When you have negative thoughts, you don’t count how many good things you have done and whether it’s worth it or not.
Don’t bother too much about those things, just do good and good will come to you. Let’s do it starting from today!
Today is an important day for all Muslims in the world: Eid al-Adha.
It's a Muslim feast day which falls on the 10th Dzulhijah Hijri year.
Eid al-Adha always has meaning to every Muslim and also can have significance for other people, because the Eid has a humanitarian mission that is universal.
Eid al-Adha is an Islamic holiday. On this day, people commemorate the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham), who is willing to sacrifice his son Ismail to Allah, but He allowed him to replace his son by his sheep.
On this holiday, Muslims gather in the morning and do the Eid prayers together in the field. After prayers they perform a qurban, to commemorate God's command to Abraham, when sheep were slaughtered instead of his son.
Later on the qurban will be given to people who need it the most: people in poverty. Isn't it beautiful when people are able to help each other? Not only today but for many more days to come. I believe that when we're helping each other, everything will be possible. So help other people, even if it’s just with a small thing or gesture. Small things matter too!
I rarely watch television but this afternoon, I watched it with my mom, my aunt and my sisters. It was not like we turned on the TV and intentionally watched it, the TV was already turned on (my grandma left it on after finishing her afternoon TV session) and all of us just sat in front of it.
The name of the show we watched was Rumah Uya (Uya's House) and at first I thought that it was a talk show - they even had an audience in the studio. But it turns out that the 'talkshow' was about commoners who want to solve their problems. And you know what? Their problems were nothing major and even kind of ridiculous! These people were arguing and the audiences were 'boo-ing' them. And what’s even more ridiculous is that it aired on National Television!
Have you ever thought that your life is complete? Believe me, it is. You know why? No one else completes you, because you’re already complete yourself.
Street Soccer National Team Indonesia was not able to win the Homeless World Cup (HWC) in 2015 and that’s pretty sad, but they are still the hero of our country, I must say. Indonesia was able to reach the Amsterdam Cup trophy which is the third shelf in HWC and in doing so became in the top 17 of the world.
I’m not going to share a personal story today but want to tell you about Ashley Murphy, a 16 year old girl that has been living with AIDS all of her life. Her story goes like this...
Have you ever wondered about the fact that life moves so fast? I still remember how excited I was when I turned 17, because I finally reached the age of ‘I’m mature enough’. That was 6 years ago…
A few days ago I decided to do something that changed me: to wear hijab. Let me tell you a little bit more about it. Every religion has their own rules and so does in Islam. In Islam, grown-up women have to wear a hijab - a veil that covers the head and chest - and clothing that is not form-fitting to the body.
Enter our territory and follow the days of the lives of the protagonists of our project. On this page they will tell you everything about their work with Bali Against Aids. This blog will be their online diary: an opportunity for them to share their experiences and to give you a sneak peak into their life.
Enjoy the ride!
