A Value of Money


I don’t know who is the owner of this Villa, but I believed He has built this with hundred millions of Rupiah. He has to spend also for daily maintenance which is not cheap. The owner comes 2 or 3 times in a year. He stays in Austria. By the way I with a good Japanese friend of mine, Kawakatsu-san, stay in here for few days. Frogs were singing together and seem to be saying a good night to me. Birds were playing their natural beauty song since early morning that keeping me in bed with a sweet dream. And I think to myself what a wonderful time. The Chinese old saying said that Money can buy a house but not a home. But I stay here without money. Made Ari who is a new friend of mine in Ubud Bali invited me to stay in his Villa he looks after

A value of Water

A friend of mine told me that next decade the most important thing is “white oil” (water). The fact is that nowadays a litter of water is more expensive than a litter of gasoline. A richest king asked an advice to an ulema and the ulema asked the king;  ” drink  this a cup of water!”. The King then drinks the water and then the ulema said;: if the water you drank won’t be out from your stomach that cause you sick, what will you do?. The king said take a half of my wealth. But hen the ulema asked again, but if the water you drank won’t be out and cause you die, what will you do? The king said; take another half of  my wealth!

Now the raining season is coming and  Jakarta is coming back flooding again. But the Jakarta people still need water!!!. A drinking water.

Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue stepped up to a podium outside the state Capitol on Tuesday and led a solemn crowd of several hundred people in a prayer for rain on his drought-stricken state.

“We’ve come together here simply for one reason and one reason only: To very reverently and respectfully pray up a storm,” Perdue said after a choir provided a hymn.

After 20 months of drought, Lake Lanier, North Georgia’s main source of drinking water, has had barely half its typical rainfall, reports CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann. The levels are 17 feet below normal — so low that boaters have to walk far out into the lake to get in. (Further detail check at http://www.cbsnews.com/)

Moslem has also a pray for rain called “istisqo pray” (a pray for rain).
