A Small Announcement on Metacritic API

Well, Metacritic API that I have told in my post earlier, it wont be open source, after long discussion with my brother. I will make it on C#.

Moreover, it won’t look like an API, but more like data gatherer.

So I think I have to change the category. Sorry folks. It seems it is not time for me to build an API, yet.

Where are You Christmas

Where are you Christmas
Why can’t I find you
Why have you gone away

Living in a big city when I am with the minority religion is quite depressing on days like Christmas. I can’t be with my family for my mom and my dad is visiting my brother in Europe. Well, I don’t mind that. What I have in mind is that I miss spending time with my family and having all our tradition at home again. At least I can go back home and stay in Medan until New Year, but not this year.

My world is changing
I’m rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too

Here in Indonesia, we have to celebrate Christmas guarded by police. It is so disturbing and I hate that! I even did not want to go to church because I really hate that! I want to feel the warmth of Christmas, not feel like I was going to be terrorized! If this holiday is for everyone to enjoy, then why should we feel unsafe?

Then I watched “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” on both 1966 and 2000 version. Later on I know, that maybe I have changed, so that I felt Christmas had changed too. Maybe everyone have changed so that they view Christmas as a threat and must be eliminated. Maybe they can’t feel the warmth of family gathering, and getting closer to each other. Maybe they have forgotten how it feels to be with those they loved on special days like Christmas.

If there is love in your heart and your mind
You will feel like Christmas all the time

I feel you Christmas
I know I’ve found you
You never fade away
The joy of Christmas
Stays here inside us
Fills each and every heart with love

Where are you Christmas
Fill your heart with love

We cannot change Christmas. It has been like that since many ways. If we want it to be good, then fill your heart with love. Because you will make things worse when you filled your heart with hatred.

Merry Christmas every one! Merry Christmas because Christmas is for every one!

Mother’s Day

Today, 22nd of December, we Indonesian is celebrating mother’s day. Close to Cristmas, this usually used by preachers to notify us Christian about how important our mother is.

Mother is a figure, mother is our very first teacher, the one whom we, must love and care most. There was a story, I don’t know whether it was true or not, where every old and sick mom must be brought to the middle of a forest and left there by their son.

One time, there was a son who was going to do so, brought his mother to a middle of a forest and left her there. He pickaback his mother and left the house heading to the forest. Knowing their direction, his mother knew that she was going to be left there. His mother thought of the last thing she could to to her son. As soon as they reach the forest, she grabbed any branches she could reach and cut it. When the son put his mother down in the middle of the forest with sad expression, he told his mother that he was going to left her there. Amazingly, because love, his mother said, “My son, I knew that you are going to left me here. When you go back, look for branches I have left on the grounds so that you can return home safety.” Hearing that, the son picked his mother up and carried her back to their home, ignoring what may people said about him.

Mother’s love is eternal and unlimited. Even when she knew that we were going to left her, she still love us with all she had. Motgher is the one willing to suffer for us. A woman, that will never left us.

So, people, love your mother because she had loved yoy first.
