Sainthood & Womanhood at its finest

Exploration to the North 2015

Unexpectedly, I go for a trip again this year. This is not in my 2015 resolution. I don’t know where this idea comes from, but there we go, we visited China and its surroundings. This time, I don’t go solo trip. I am accompanied by my Mom, aunty and uncle. One thing that drives me to go is to experience the tobogganing along the Great Wall of China (Well, weird.) and also the desire to travel with Mom, really made this happen.… Continue reading...

A Home For This Heart

It was first started by a lunch meeting with a brother, I was invited to something I wanted in the past, which I have forgotten. Several years ago, I knew them, I knew those people who pioneered this home, I knew their activities, but when I wanted to join them in this community, I was too young. From the midst of my hectic daily duties, boring days, unchallenged life, I was invited to learn to know more about a community, which I knew only by name.… Continue reading...

One Fine Saturday Morning

20141220_081135

Here I am pausing my work out, sitting down on green grasses in the park nearby my area. Working out alone while having my personal me time.

I was also running here 6 months ago. I ran to build a strong enough muscles to conquer Australia in my solo escape. So here I am again today. I ask myself, what is your purpose in your today’s run. I would answer : to prepare my muscles to serve in the next Xmas event.… Continue reading...

Solo Escapade 2014 : Australia!

Yihaaaa! A quote says : “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” so here I am travelling to southern hemisphere of the Earth : Australia! This is the first continent outside Asia that I visited. The reasons why I choose Australia to be my travel destination are because I have many friends to visit there, I want to see and hug a SHEEP (my favorite animal) and I want to experience winter, after 22 years living in tropical area, such a warm life 😐

I plan this escapade just around 2 months before the day.… Continue reading...

A Discernment Process

St. Ignatius of Loyola is my Saint of the year this year. It all started when I was recommended a book about discernment by the book store uncle during my visit in Singapore. The book is titled ‘God’s Voice Within’ written by a Jesuit.

Having read the book, I am faced with a decision I have to make that will decide my whole future : to stay in current work company or to move to another company. In current company, perhaps I did well so that the manager would like to promote me to be permanent staff.… Continue reading...

The Third Way : Homosexuality and the Catholic Church.

 

Homosexuality has been my lazy topic, because as what the Sister said in this video : “that same sex attraction is considered disordered and they feel that is a harsh language, or it’s a judgement, actually it’s not.” – Sr. Helena Burns. Whatever truth the Church may have and I might explain just make the Church and I looked so judgmental towards those people. Well, it is actually not! Perhaps the objective truth is too hurts~

However, homosexuality is not a sin, it becomes sin if the desire is turned into sexual acts.… Continue reading...

I am an INTJ!

I love to learn about personality. I love to meet new people, with meeting new people I meet new personalities and new point of view. Understanding the uniqueness of human being is very interesting. The best personality test in my opinion is the MBTI (Myers Briggs). It groups the personalities into 16 personalities and I am tested as an INTJ! It is so me!

INTJ is said as the most rare personality alive. It is only 2% and the female INTJ population is less than 1%.… Continue reading...

First Quarter of 2014 #CheckPoint

Welcome to April. Yes, time flies so fast. We’re in the first quarter of 2014. Flipping through my agenda, I see my colorful, full of illustration images of my 2014 Resolution. Yeah, I write New Year Resolution each year, sometimes I write an annual review of that happened that year.

Like A Bone

Once upon a day, I joined the Catholic youth camp in Tumpang, Malang. It was the counseling session and the young and confuse Monica took a time to talk about her anxiety with a Carmellite Nun. My question was about spiritual progression that I had felt to go no where. The nun answered me that it’s not just me who experienced spiritual stagnant, everyone does. And she also gave several advices which was not understood by young Monica. One of the story which I remember was a story about a bone.… Continue reading...
