If I were Angelina Jolie I could 110% tell I would bring this little devil home. So adorable 8 years young Jek, or Jack, who was an orphan but ‘supervised’. He goes to school everyday (he spoke good English) but sells overpriced flower necklaces at night in Chaweng with those ‘Roxannes’ AND pretty shemales. Oh life! at Koh Samui – View on Path.
Kids Labor - This have always been a big problem for developing countries. Anyways, during this vacation I read this book called ‘5 CM’ by Donny Dhirgantoro where Ian, one of the characters in the book, had been disappointed with his country he always thought who’s to blame whenever he witnessed unfairness and he always planned to get out of Indonesia one day. The book could be related to this situation as we could understand in lieu of looking whom to be blamed, it is way better for us to understand what is our role to such a problem.
I often heard that giving money to those kids on the street had never been good. If you have watched Slumdog Millionaire there was this ‘center’ where poor kids were ‘trained’ and those scumbags made money from them, which might be true in real life, nonetheless, I would say we did not have to skip giving. Here is why:
- Pursuant to Article 34 of our Constitution, poor kids shall be taken care of by the Government. There, we are not the Government so why so serious thinking of a dominos effect or complex system alteration to help those kids where you ended up blaming the Government anyways, no action taken - you are not part of anything, not the Government, not the society, as you are merely that NATO no-action-talk-only person, malesin..;
- We live in the moment, live it, to the fullest, as always. With regards this point, we never knew when we die so it is not a bad depiction to die after making at least a person happy, even for a few minutes;
- In relation to all of the preceding, we can never be poor by giving, so WARUM NICHT?
