Makan Gak Makan (Slank)

Hidup memang udah susah
Tapi jangan dibikin susah
Hidup memang bikin pusing
Jangan tambah dibawa pening
Selama kamu masih mencintaiku
Selama kamu tetap setia padaku

Makan gak makan asal kumpul
Makan gak makan, makan gak makan
Asal kumpul
Makan gak makan, makan gak makan
Asal kau ada di sampingku

Hari demi hari semakin parah
Kuatin semangat biar gak lemah
Gali-gali lobang tutup lobang
Biar gak tambah banyak hutang 

Why I post this lyric to you guys? Try to understand and flashback our daily life. "Indonesia Maju!" -the famous slogan among Indonesian and my friend post something really open my mind dealing with our Malaysian workers. Read this:

Surabaya - Menteri Tenaga Kerja dan Transmigrasi (Menakertrans), Muhaimin Iskandar, Minggu, memimpin "Aksi Semangat Indonesia" di halaman parkir timur, Plaza Surabaya, Jawa Timur.
"Ayo kita terus dan selalu bersemangat untuk bekerja dalam setiap hari. Ini semua untuk mengembangkan etos dan potensi kita," katanya di hadapan ribuan warga Surabaya yang mengikuti kampanye itu.

 Menurut dia, dengan timbulnya rasa semangat dalam diri sendiri, maka pelaksanaan pekerjaan akan terasa mudah, karena itu melakukan kegiatan apapun harus dibarengi dengan semangat yang tinggi.
"Kalau kita terus semangat, pekerjaan akan lancar. Kemudian, hasilnya memuaskan. Ini juga yang mendorong produktivitas bangsa supaya kita bisa bersaing dengan negara lain," selain itu;
"Itu juga untuk mengingatkan kita pada disiplin kerja agar kita selalu ingat waktu, dan tidak enak-enakan setiap hari,"

Ternyata walaupun disenaraikan sebagai negara miskin, tetapi semangat warga Indonesia tetap kental dan berdaya saing. Ini dapat di buktikan melalui pekerja koruptor (kontrak) yang sepanjang masa bekerja keras, panas-terik demi untuk mencari uwang. Ini semangat yang kita perlukan dalam diri kita.

Disiplin kerja dalam warga kerja Malaysia terlalu rendah! Bukan menghina tapi memang kebenaran. Baru-baru ini, ayah saya menguruskan 1 kes kematian pekerja Indonesia yang berusia 24tahun kerna di langgar lori ketika memetik buah kelapa sawit. Agak terkilan bila bos kepada pemuda Indonesia tersebut menceritakan kisah hidup pemuda tersebut. Tinggal di Timor Leste, mencari uwang di Malaysia utk meyara hidup - semasa kecil ketika Timor Leste dlm pergelolakkan, keluarganya lari ke Indonesia tetapi pemuda tersebut lari ke hutan utk menyelamatkan diri - 2bulan kemudian diselamatkan tentera UN Malaysia (diberi makan & minum)

"Mereka yg bagi ku mkn dulu" kata pemuda tersebut menunjukkan ke arah askar Malaysia ketika dia tiba di Sarawak 4bulan lalu - menceritakan kepada bos nya ketika masih hidup.

Baru 4bulan di Malaysia tapi pemuda tersebut mati ketika mencari rezeki. Kata bos dan rakan2 pemuda tersebut, "Dia orgnya rajin, kerja ikut masa, disiplin, kerja harus siap biar lambat pulang'.

Rest In Peace my friend!  (12 September 2010)
God Bless. Amen

Pontianak (our lovely lady)

Pontianak or Kuntilanak is one of the most famous, scariest and violent ghost in the Malaysian culture. Primarily, the Malays believe that it originates from a still born child, women who dies while giving birth, women who were killed by the pontianak or their spirits captured by them. The phrase “Pontianak” was believed from the acronym of “Perempuan Mati Beranak” in the Malay language, meaning the woman death by childbirth. After such death, precautions are taken to prevent them from rising like

  • Putting glass beads in the corpses mouth so that they can’t shriek
  • Placing eggs under the corpses armpits so that they can’t fly
  • Placing needles in their palms so that they can’t fly also (apparently the palm helps the pontianak to fly)
Pontianak usually announces its presence through baby cries or turn themselves into beautiful lady and frighten or kill the unlucky who enter or pass through their vicinity. It usually disguise itself as a beautiful young lady to attract its victim (usually male). Its presence sometimes can be detected by a nice floral fragrance of the ‘kemboja’ (a type of flower) followed by an awful stench afterwards. The distance of a pontianaks cries are very tricky. The Malays believe that if the cry is soft means that the pontianak is near and if it is loud then it must be far.

Want to know how a pontianak kills?
It digs into your stomach with its long sharp fingernails and feed on it to survive.

And want to know why we don’t hang our clothes at night outside the house?
It’s because people believe that it sniffs your clothes to suck your blood.

It is also believed that the pontianak can be killed by plunging a nail down the back of its neck whereby it will transform the pontianak into a beatiful normal girl.

It is said that a woman who dies while she is with child will rise again as a "Pontianak", a fearsome nocturnal undead being who will bring violent death on anyone she meets. Such a being resides inside the trunk of ancient trees, but will revert to her old human nature if an iron nail is driven into her neck. The nail remains in the woman's neck until she dies and is buried with it, should the nail ever be removed, she will once again become a Pontianak. This is TRUE because it were happened long time ago at our village.

Misunderstood Sign of Inverted Cross and the Number of 666

Inverted cross also known as Cross of St.Peter. It is believed that Peter requested this form of crucifixion as he felt he was unworthy to be crucified in the same manner that Christ died (upright). As such, some Catholics use this cross as a symbol of humility and unworthiness in comparison to Christ.
According to Roman Catholicism, the Pope is Peter's successor as Bishop of Rome. Therefore the Papacy is often represented by symbols that are also used to represent Peter — one example being the Keys of Heaven, another the Petrine Cross. During Pope John Paul II's visit to Israel, he sat on a chair with the Cross of Peter cut into the back. However, an inverted crucifix (a Latin cross with an artistic depiction of the crucified body of Christ upon it) is seen as immensely disrespectful, and could be used to represent Satanic forces. The distinction between a Cross of Peter and upturned Crucifix is sometimes obscured, leading to confusion about the acceptability of each symbol.

There is an explanation for the "inverted cross" image on the Pope's chair other than the "Satanic Symbol" portrayed by some anti-Catholic propagandists. Legend or historical fact…it really isn't relevant to my point. What is relevant is that the "inverted cross" symbol as used by Christians refers to the traditional belief as to the manner of St. Peter's martyrdom -- not the Satanic Symbol.

Vicarius Filii Dei ( the number of 666 )
In the 19th century Uriah Smith and some groups of Seventh-day Adventists argued that Vicarius Filii Dei is identified with the "number of the beast" (666), and should be understood as a reference to the papal tiara, thus calling the Pope the Antichrist. The lack of images or any source using Vicarius Filii Dei to refer to the tiara or miter, plus the fact that the term was never used as an official title, the claim has been abandoned by Seventh-day Adventists. This is because :
(The sum works as follows: VICARIVS FILII DEI = 5+1+100+1+5+1+50+1+1+500+1 = 666, where 'U' is taken as 'V').

What is Papal Tiara?
Also known incorrectly as the Triple Tiara, or in Latin as the 'Triregnum', in Italian as the 'Triregno' and as the 'Trirègne' in French, is the three-tiered jewelled papal crown, usually used by the Pope.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose based on the true story of Anneliese Michel

In 1968, when she was 17 and still in high school, Anneliese began to suffer from convulsions. Court findings have her experiencing her first epileptic attack in 1969. It was then that a neurologist at the Psychiatric Clinic Wurzburg diagnosed her with Grand Mal epilepsy. Soon, Anneliese started experiencing devilish hallucinations while praying. She also began to hear voices, which told her that she was damned. The court determined that by 1973 Anneliese was suffering from depression and considering suicide. In 1975, convinced that she was possessed, her parents gave up on the doctors from the psychiatric clinic. They chose to rely solely on the exorcisms for healing . Anneliese's symptoms have since been compared with those of schizophrenia, and they may have responded to treatment.

Father Arnold Renz and Pastor Ernst Alt, both men were assigned by the Bishop of Wurzburg, Josef Stangl, to carry out "The Great Exorcism" on Anneliese Michel. The foundation for this ritual was the "Rituale Romanum", which at the time, was still a valid 17th century Cannon Law. Father Arnold Renz had been a former missionary in China, and Pastor Ernst Alt was a pastor in a nearby community. Together they carried out 67 rites of exorcism over a period of 10 months, with one or two exorcism sessions held each week. Some sessions lasted up to four hours.

Anneliese was convinced that she had been possessed by several demons, including(6 high ranking of Demons) Lucifer, Judas Iscariot, Nero, Cain, Hitler, and Fleischmann, a disgraced Frankish Priest from the 16th century.(a roman catholic priest in Ettlebin, Barvaria (germany), removed from office for drunkeness, assault, and murder, 1572-1575) She also mentioned a few other damned souls who had manifested themselves through her.

Weak and on the verge of death, she spoke her last known words on the day before she died. She told her exorcists "Beg for Absolution". To her mother Anna, she said, "Mother, I'm afraid."

(6 high ranking of Demons)
  1. אני הוא ששוכן בתוך קין. (Hebrew) (Ani hu sheshokhen betokh Cain.) I am the one who dwelt within Cain!
  2. Ego sum quis habitavit in Nerone. (Latin) I am one who dwelt within Nero!
  3. Mιά φορά κατοίκησε μέσα σε Ιούδας! (ancient Greek) (Mia fora katoikese mesa se Ioudas!) I dwelt within Judas!
  4. Ich [bin] mit Legion. (German) I am with Legion.
  5. ܐܢܐ ܒܠܝܐܝܠ. (Arameic) (Ana Belial.) I am Belial.
  6. And I am Lucifer, the devil in the flesh.
