Illegal Fishing in Indonesia

Feel like I was ain't nowhere.... me, is nothing...
In the middle of the sea, who has a strength to keep our boat floating?
No one but Him.
See the sunset, those dark-orange clouds, the water around us...?
Those are so huge!!!
What are we?
But those are just only His creature.
How about Him?
We are so small, my brother. But, only us.
Being watched by Him.
Think about it.

Our patrol vessel, early in the morning, normal shut, without editing.

One of the illegal ship operated in our water territory, we're gonna catch 'em like a cowboy!

Me, in the name of Allah, were doing the Indonesian people's duty.
Ready to die for Allah in the middle of the waves. May He always keep our vessel save.

One of the crew, too many playing the counter strike game on a notebook, act like one. We really need those weapons, because we are facing many stubborn armed thieves. Not a good one (our weapons), actually. But, quite enough to intimidate.

The sidelong-approached, after our announcement to stop their engine and all of their crew should be seated on the bow.

The sidelong-approached accomplished, continue with the investigation procedures.

Those illegal ships look so ugly with corrosion everywhere, but that just their camouflage. See their radio communication above. And also their navigation equipments.

All of the situation should be reported straight away to the Head Quarter.

Our Commander arrived and watched himself that we got those illegal ships.

The shark meat, with the head and the fin cut. They separated them in some place, and sell that way. Very great demand in China, Taiwan, Japan and Korea.

With the help of Allah Ta'ala, we're gonna sail all over the country, to find other pirates, smugglers and thieves.

Thanks to Allah Ta'ala

Alhamdulillah, Allah Ta'ala masih ngasi hujan. Kita ini semua bener2 dipelihara sama Allah, sama seperti kita pelihara ayam, kucing atau ikan.

Kita kasi makan minum peliharaan kita.
Begitu juga Allah.

Kita slenthik telinga kucing kita kalo dia bandel.
Begitu juga Allah.

Tapi walau bandel, kita tetep sayang dan kasi makan si kucing.
Begitu juga Allah.

Allah Ta'ala begitu baik luar biasa sama kita.
Tapi kita lebih peduli dunia kita.
Kita lebih habiskan waktu utk kesenangan kita sendiri.

Tidak sungkankah kita sama Allah?

Bon Jovi: Blood On Blood's Lyrics

Well I can still remember
When I was just a kid
When friends were friends forever
And what you said was what you did

Well, it was me and Danny and Bobby
We cut each other's hands
And held tight to a promise
Only brothers understand

But we were so young (so young)
One for all and all
for one (for one)
Just as sure as the
river's gonna run

Blood on blood
One on one
We'd still be standing
When all was said and done
Blood on blood
One on one
And I'll be here for you
Till Kingdom come
Blood on blood

Well, Bobby was our hero
Cause he hed a fake I.D.
I got busted stealing cigarettes
And he took the rap for me

Danny knew this white trash girl
We each threw in a ten
She took us to this cheap motel
And turned us into men

Now Bobby, he's an uptown lawyer
Danny, he's a medicin man
And me, I'm just the singer
In a long haired rock'n'roll band

Through the years and
miles between us
It's been a long and lonely ride
But if I got a call in the
dead of the night
I'd be right by your side

Blood on blood

Lived A Man, Who Sailed to Sea


Luruskan pandang ke daratan tandus, ke petak-petak garam
Ke laut lepas, layar putih- putih, perahu-perahu bebas
O Laut Jawa di belakang desa-desa sengsara
Laut Jawa di belakang kejatuhan dan kebangkitan suatu bangsa

Laut adalah kita, perahu-perahu berkuasa
Dari Arafura, Selat Sunda, Selat Malaka
Demikian sejarah bangsa dalam masa jaya
Sebelum Sultan Agung dan monopoli kapal dagang bersenjata

Laut adalah kita, sebelum cengkeh dan pala
Laut adalah kita, sesudah minyak dan baja
Perahu-perahu begitu manis, kapal-kapal lebih perkasa
Luruskan pandang ke laut, laut yang merdeka

Ajib Rosidi - Pantai Utara

World's Best Love

All you need is love.

All you give is love.

Like mothers do.

A mother's love to her child is the best love in the world.

No matter her child being nice nor naughty.

When a child urinate upon her, she will say, "Alhamdulillah (Praise to Allah) my child is healty."

When a child bite her nipple while breast-feeding, she will say,
"Alhamdulillah (Praise to Allah) his/her teeth are growing up.

A mother's love to her child is really the best love in the world.

It's Only Love

Pabila cinta memanggilmu, ikutilah dia,
walau jalannya terjal dan berliku-liku.
Dan pabila sayapnya merangkummu, pasrahlah serta menyerah,
walau pedang yang tersembunyi di sela sayap itu melukaimu.

Dan jika dia bicara kepadamu, percayalah,
walau ucapannya membuyarkan mimpimu, bagai angin utara mengobrak-abrik taman-taman.
Sebagaimana dia membumbung, mengecup puncak-puncak ketinggianmu,
membelai mesra ranting-ranting terlembut,
yang bergetar dalam cahaya matahari,
demikian pula ia menghunjam ke dasar akarmu,
mengguncang-guncangnya dari ikatanmu dengan tanah.
Cinta tidak memiliki atau dimiliki;
karena cinta telah cukup untuk cinta.
Pabila engkau mencintai, janganlah berkata:

"Dia ada di dalam hatiku."

Tapi sebaiknya engkau merasa:

"Aku berada di dalamNya."

in my life

I am so happy in your happiness.

To you happiness is a form of freedom, and of all the people I know you should be the freest. Surely you have earned this happiness and this freedom. Life cannot be but kind and sweet to you. You have been so sweet and kind to life.

The relation between you and me is the most beautiful thing in my life.

It is the most wonderful thing that I have known in any life. It is eternal.

Demonstration of love are small, compared with the great thing that is back of them.

Follow your heart. Your heart is the right guide in everything big. Mine is so limited. What you want to do is determined by that divine element that is in each of us.

I realized that all the trouble I ever had about you came from some smallness or fear in myself.

The most wonderful thing, is that you and I are always walking together, hand in hand, in a strangely beautiful world, unknown to other people. We both stretch one hand to receive from Life - and Life is generous indeed.

When I'm Sixty-Four - The Lyrics

The song is sung by a young man to his lover, and is about his plans of growing old together with her. Although the theme is ageing, it was one of the first songs McCartney wrote, when he was 16.

The Beatles used it in the early days as a song they could play when the amplifiers broke down or the electricity went off. Both George Martin and Mark Lewisohn speculated that McCartney may have thought of the song when recording began for Sgt. Pepper in December 1966 because his father turned 64 earlier that year.
Lennon said of the song, "Paul wrote it in the Cavern days. We just stuck a few more words on it like 'grandchildren on your knee' and 'Vera, Chuck and Dave' ... this was just one that was quite a hit with us."  In his 1980 interview for Playboy he said, "I would never even dream of writing a song like that."

When I get older losing my hair
many years from now

will you still be sending me a valentine
birthday greeting, bottle of wine

If I'd been out till quarter to three
would you lock the door

Will you still need me
Will you still feed me

When I'm sixty-four

You'll be older too

And if you say the word
I could stay with you

I could be handy mending a fuse
when your light have gone

You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings, go for a ride

Doing the garden, digging the weeds
Who could ask for more

Will you still need me
Will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four

Every summer we can rent a cottage on the Isle of Wight,
if it's not too dear

We shall scrimp and save

Grandchildren on your knee
Vera, Chuck, and Dave

Send me a postcard, drop me a line
stating point of view

indicate precisely what you mean to say
yours sincerely wasting away

Give me your answer fill in a form
mine forever more

Will you still need me
Will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four
