Ngontrak di Tanah Sendiri

While I became more and more Jakartanese, I was not blinded that the native Jakartans feel that they are renting a place in their own land. I used to live among native Betawi before moving to Serpong. Eventhough I should consider myself as a resident of Banten, I still answered "Jakarta" when asked by foreigners where do I live.

Reading the article in Kompas made me think of fellow Papuans who wrote for I also think of Dayak people, and the whole Indonesian peoples. The globalization is opening a door to outsiders to come in. While I am (sometimes) still considered as outsiders (too) in the eyes of some Indonesians because of my racial back ground, I know that the answer lies in the chance for education. Economic back ground became important when the chance for good education is limited only for those who can pay for it. It is time for the government to think seriously and try even harder to provide free education for Indonesian children without any discrimination.

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my - ( | earn money articles | A Very Helpful Guide For You to Make Money on the Internet & Earn Cash Online. A Blog Full of Useful Information, Tips & Resources. Now, You Too Can Work at Home & Start Your Own Home Based Business. So, What Are You Waiting For?! Just Keep Reading, then Take Action!),

and plus get some surprise. Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blog. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of blogs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you click on one of my ads : I would feel happy if you did click it, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. That's the whole beauty of it all.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater google at the top of my sidebar page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Open your heart and come along!!!!!
