Indonesian Minister of Forestry: Please Save Surabaya Zoo

Melani KBS
Melani KBS

Her name is Melani, a Sumatran Tiger in KBS (Surabaya Zoo), Indonesia.

She is undernourished, you can see her skin clinging to her bones. At her age, a healthy feline should weighted at 100 kg, but Melani is 60 kg. Her days are spent laying helpless on the cage floor. Almost every food she consumed was eventually vomited a few moments later, and diarrhea is preying for her life. The only trace of her soul is her fierce eyes seeking for your help. Melani is not the only one. Last month, a male tiger Razak died after lungs disease due to tiny and unsanitary cage. Many are now concerned Melani will die soon, or she might face euthanasia. Ironically there are only 600 Sumatran tigers left in Sumatran forests.

In March 2012, the only giraffe in KBS died in her cage after her stomach was filled with plastic garbage. The giraffe and other animals in KBS do live under inhumane condition: tiny cage filled with garbage and inadequate sunlight. Some of them does not have shelter after their cage was leased as rooms for humans, and leafy trees to shade was occupied for witchcraft clinic.

The revised Indonesian penal code article 302 clearly indicates that animal owners are responsible for the welfare and safety of their animals, this includes giving a good care and feed them. Negligence for the animal’s wellbeing, and causing them to be ill and hurt are a violation of the code and punishable for 2-7 years prison and penalty up to 10 million rupiah.

While an ad hoc management team to rescue KBS has been appointed, the pictures and videos of Melani in terrible condition indicates the management is not doing enough. What happened to KBS management? Why many animals in still in poor condition? Internal conflicts within the organization could be the driving factor, but animal welfare should always be the main concern. Therefore we request Indonesian Minister of Forestry, Zulkifli Hasan to save the animals in KBS and have them nurtured as instructed in Indonesian penal code (KUHP) article 302 on animal welfare.

We ask you to join the petition to support the Minister of Forestry to act immediately and save the animals at the KBS zoo. Not only because they are endangered, but also because they are a living being like us that can feel pain and fear. Let’s speak up for those who cannot speak.

Apologizes

I learned from Ashton Kucher, when he made a public apology and admitted his fault commenting on something in his tweet which was wrong. Sometimes in our heart, we can admit our mistakes, but we still don't want to apologize. Eventho we say sorry but it just feels forced, not really apologizing.

Learning from Ashton Kucher, if we make any mistake, we should apologize immediately and show how we are very sorry and admit it. Several months ago, one of my tweet was wrong and harmful to others. Many of my followers were protesting me, blaming me. I was confused. Then I remember what Ashton did, so I try. I apologize sincerely and admitting my mistake. Surprisingly, the people who had been directly blamed me can forgave me and even they respected me. Because of what happened, I admit, apologizing is a very positive energy. But if we truly understand our mistakes and willing to admit.

But not all apology are easy to do. Either because we're busy, or we still cannot convinced our mistakes, or other person still can not forgive us. Luckily God has given us a very special time to apologize and forgive. If the world do it together, it's easier right? God is so clever, so nice, we should not waste this precious moment. Let us apologize and forgive each other.

Happy Eid brothers and sisters. My whole heart apologize for all of my words and actions.

Queen - You're My Best Friend

Ooh you make me liveWhatever this world can give to me It’s you you’re all I see

Ooh you’re the best friend that I ever had I’ve been with you such a long time You’re my sunshine and I want you to know That my feelings are true I really love you Oh you’re my best friend

Ooh you make me live I’ve been wandering round But I still come back to you

In rain or shine You’ve stood by me girl I’m happy at home You’re my best friend

Ooh you make me live Whenever this world is cruel to me I got you to help me forgive Ooh you make me live now honey Ooh you make me live

You’re the first one When things turn out bad You know I’ll never be lonely You’re my only one And I love the things I really love the things that you do You’re my best friend

I’m happy at home You’re my best friend Oh you’re my best friend Ooh you make me live You you’re my best friend

A beautiful song. Expressing the joy feeling having someone who have been with us for such a long time, who always be the first one to come when things turn out bad, who always be there in rain or shine, who helps us to forgive the cruel world, and most importantly, who never makes us feel alone.

This song reminds us that the most ideal partner in our life is someone who can be our best friend. (:

How To Identify Twitter Accounts With Fake Followers

I'm sure many you have wondered why the owner of the account X,  who we never heard before, who isn't a celebrity or a famous organizations may have thousands or even million of followers? As far as I know, there are two ways to manipulate the number of followers on Twitter. The first one is adding thousands or millions of robot (BOT) account in our followers list. BOT account does not have a master, they were made simultaneously by a person at a time. If we already got a thousands to millions of BOT's account, then we can make the BOT follow our account. The process is very easy. You just need to be patience. Thats it. But every year Twitter clean-up BOT accounts. BOT that caught by Twitter will be removed. So in a sudden followers of Twitter account with BOT followers reduced drastically.

Other way to manipulate number of its followers by forcing a lot of Twitter accounts to follow their account. I guess you guys ever find an unknown account in your following list. You never follow them but suddenly these people pops out on our timeline. I ever suddenly follow and Mexican boy. I was confused. So with this way, not all the followers will always follow us. If they realized never follow us, they will unfollow us.

This post is not about how to manipulate the number of our followers, but to share an easy way identifying accounts with fake followers. Since I only know how to manipulate the number of followers with BOT, then I can only share how to identify BOT followers. Here's account with 16,000 BOT followers. I don't need to mention who, but here I take a few examples of his/her followers:

An anonymous almost famous account with 13,000 BOT followers. This is an example of his/her followers:

How to identify fake or BOT followers?

  • All followers are always strangers from USA or Canada.
  • All followers always with 0 tweets.
  • All followers created on the same date. See this:

  • BOT followers are never separate from each other. I you scroll down, you well find the list full of them.
  • Usually every half year, many BOT accounts being remove by Twitter.
  • Keep in mind, sometimes we can't find BOT followers on followers list because it already covered with new-original followers. If you wondering whether someone followers are fake or not, then just scroll down their followers list.

PS: If anyone has more info, please share!

Boys and Girls Big Questions

Big question from most guy in my country: why ugly guy get pretty girl? They discuss about this seriously. They even publish their thoughts on Kaskus. Oh mannnn, do this thing really bother you all? Uglier guy than you get pretty girl and you're not?

Okay, let me answer this big question from you guys: don't be over confidence but be confidence.

1st. You guys are over confidence by saying that other guy are ugly and you deserve the pretty girl better. Please! Did you forget that we need your brain and your sense of humor more than how you look?

2nd. Beside over confidence, you guys aren't confidence enough. If you are confidence with your self, right now you got a lot of girls are waiting for your attention. Being a man with confidence is such a magnet for pretty girls. Need some example? I'll give you. Confidence means never worry to look stupid. Confidence means you say what you want to say. Confidence means never judge others. Confidence means you can solve your problem by your self. Confidence means no one knows what make you sad. Confidence means you are comfortable with what you are wearing. Confidence means never need to think twice to help others. Confidence means enjoy being your self.

Did that already? Good.

Now it's my turn to ask you my big big question: why stupid girl get smart guy?
Answer it, anyone?

Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009

2 0 0 9.

I'm writing this inside my car with my boyfriend at Jalan Solo Yogyakarta. 15 minutes before we're here, we doesn't have any plan where to celebrate new year. It was a surprise when we got here. We don't have to spend a lot of money but we get the desire to welcome the year 2009.

Outside is very crowded. We're stuck in the middle of the street because hundreds of people are standing in this street. They play fire works, sing a long, wave hands at us, take a picture of us and so do we, just to celebrate this new year. I'm so excited. I never had such a romantic, fun, and exciting moment of new year like this night even I never plan it before. Thanks to the technology, thanks to fire works, thanks to the unknown people, thanks to my boyfriend, and thanks to God :*

Happy new year everybody!
