Happy Eid Mubarak

dearest my Muslim friends,

-in Indonesia and all over the world

At the end of Ramadhan,
the month of peace and tranquility
I want to hold your hands
to embark on a journey on two wheels
the wheels of peace and love

At the end of Ramadhan,
the month of spiritual learning
I want to stand next to you side by side
to show the world what it means to care
the message of peace with all we will share

At the end of Ramadhan,
let me shake your hands
and embrace you
with love
and peace

Happy Eid Mubarak 1425 H, my friends
Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri 1425 H, sahabat

The Mourning Day

— The thirteen original states that brought us the Constitution voted overwhelmingly for John Kerry.
— The states that didn’t secede and which fought against slavery voted overwhelmingly for John Kerry.
— Black America which brought us in Martin Luther King, one of the greatest moral exemplars of modern times as well as the blues, jazz and soul voted overwhelmingly for John Kerry.
— California, home of the modern motion picture industry, voted for Kerry.

These are the great American achievements: the United States’ lasting contribution to freedom, culture and progress. Sadly, that America, the America of which Americans have the most reason to be proud and foreigners have the most reason to admire, just lost. Again.

Today perhaps is the world's mourning day....
Quite depressing as Bush actually not only wins the electoral votes he also wins the popular votes..... ah... couldn't comment more....
People in the office are quite sad... depressed.... were upset this morning and then.. just.. so quiet..
The future of the world suddenly becomes more gloomy...
ARGGGH!!

The World's Long Waits.....

The whole world pray for a real change.... but will there be a change?
The whole world have chosen whom they wanted to be the U.S. prez, but will Americans finally choose someone that is cursed by most people in the world?
Ah.... long awaiting..
I am nervous, so are all people in the world, perhaps....
Bush is still leading now.... 211 : 188, but there's still a hope.... Oregon, Ohio, Florida, New Mexico, Iowa, Minnesota, Hawaii....
Anyway...
Just to make myself feel better.... I am proud of my state... District of Columbia.. here, it's is 90% for Kerry and 9% for Mr. B. Hey, that's similar to the world's votes!
