Ramadan Review I

Bismillahirahmanirahim

In the previos post I talked about my experience with pain or rather the conclusions out of it – in a rather general way. Because I realized that it can helpt to read or get to know aobut others experiences, I decided to share mine, in hope it could help anyone.

To summarize from the post before: the last days of Ramadan were quiet hard for me because of a certain thing (I don´t want to call it problem) that stuck in my mind and haunted me. In the following you gonna get a little more insight to the story. … More Ramadan Review I

Pain

“Everyone wants happiness, no one wants pain But there won´t be sunshine without any rain.” We all experience pain in our lives – even if we might wish and try to always stay happy and strong. The last days of Ramadan (and also some after it) it  was the topic that haunted me. That´s why … More Pain

Going to the woods / A day out with the kids

The last week I had probably the happiest days in the last several… maybe month. Why? Bukan karena ketemu doi (emang ada doi? Ya tergantung definisi sih). Atau mungkin juga karena ketemu doi

I went to my parents home for the weekend and on one day there was a pengajian[1] (or sohbet in turkish), where I met again with my three beloved kiddos (the children of my mother´s friend that I know since their birth and I used to take care of sometimes) after I haven´t seen them for several month. … More Going to the woods / A day out with the kids

Cinta itu hoax? –Love is a lie?

(Indonesian and English translation)
We once got a task in school (in Indonesia) where we should define „What is love?“ (sounds like a title of a song –what it actually is). For me a quiet weird question to talk about as a school task. We were split into groups of boys and girls and should discuss about the question and our opinion´s towards it.
“Love are words…” was the first answer of a boy´s group.

I couldn´t agree. If love would only be expressed by words it would be worthless, without value. Just a human´s creation.
“Love is a lie” was the next statement. … More Cinta itu hoax? –Love is a lie?

Kehilangang focus

Actually I should be working on my study assignment right now. But my thoughts are just too far away at the moment to focus on things like study work. So instead of starring at the display or rather stalking instagram or old pictures that won´t improve the situation, I decided to write. Not what I am supposed to write but at least there is an output even though it´s not the output needed right now. This really won´t be something productive. So if you want to spend your time for something useful, don’t read this. … More Kehilangang focus

Film Review: Flipped

So today something not that deep like otherwise. Semester is coming to an end what means: a lot of work to do. But because everyone needs a break sometimes I decided to take some time for watching “Flipped” again, probably the seventh time, after some years. The reason I watched this one so often: It is my favourite movie. At first look you might think “Just another teenage-love-story”. But it is a lot more than that. You can get so much out of it. And it´s definitely not a common “teenage love film”.
A little spoiler because this was what made me first like the film: there is no kissing scene. Instead they end up planting a tree. What can be cuter? And sustainable at the same time! … More Film Review: Flipped

Letter to you

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim Dearest friend, We haven´t meet for quite a while.But it´s interesting to see how people develop. They do things you´d never expect them to do. They act in a way you would not have imagined. Some get philosophers, architects, teachers, nurses, engineers, managers and some become soldiers. Our ways have separated so long ago … More Letter to you

A Confrontation With Death

Loss is a part of life. People lose children, a spouse, a sibling, a relative or a friend. But looking at the regions where war and destructions rules and death could reach you every moment, from any direction many are losing their parents, their spouse, a lot of friends, their siblings, their relatives and their children. It´s a genocide. There have been many before. But it is spreading and the dimensions become bigger. It´s the death of humanity And I mean it like I say. Because what is happening right now primarily shows us one: It´s not long anymore until Yaumil Qiamah (the judgement day) is coming.
To use the winter break for something useful I went to the Juma´ah prayer with my parents after a long time. The topic of the Khutbah (the talk the Imam gives before the prayer) was the signs of Yaumil Qiamah coming closer considering the actual circumstances. … More A Confrontation With Death

Kinderlachen

Yesterday I drove home to my parents house – four hours by train that actually should have been 2 ½. But because some delays and train trouble it became four. But this was okay because I had a really great incident after waiting for the next train for about an hour. (Even if I would … More Kinderlachen
