Kindle DX Announced!

As the rumor suggested, the new Kindle DX was announced this morning.

I am drooling over the big screen (still in the middle of reading a manga). It's also a good thing that they finally support PDF files.

But the almost-USD-500 tag price is working against it. I knew I wouldn't buy it before, but now I know with deeper conviction.

On another note, the Spring Fellowship is coming. I am so looking forward to it. And of course, Vina's wedding is up next after that. Do.. mi.. so... I need to make sure I hit the right notes when it matters.

In the meantime, Sony, hurry up and release a bigger screen e-reader, please!

Guides to Virtual Choir

Dalam rangka pandemi ini, paduan suara tidak dapat berlatih bersama, apalagi melayani bersama. Karena itu, maka mulailah inisiatif untuk mengadakan paduan suara online, untuk pelayanan.  Agar hasilnya bisa optimal, anggota paduan suara perlu mengingat, bahwa mereka bernyanyi bukan sebagai solois, tapi sebagai bagian dari paduan suara yang besar. Jadi meskipun saat rekaman, kadang merasa kurang sempurna, selama anggota paduan suara memberikan yang terbaik (bukan asal-asalan yah), saya percaya Tuhan memberkati pelayanan kita semua. Nah, tentu saja ada beberapa tips yang bisa kita ikuti, supaya hasil rekaman bisa bagus dan maksimal. Contohnya: rekaman memakai tripod dalam ruangan yang pencahayaan cukup dan tidak membelakangi matahari/sumber cahaya adalah beberapa cara yang bisa kita pakai untuk menaikkan kualitas video kita. Berikut ini adalah guidelines / tips untuk merekam video untuk paduan suara online, yang aku buat untuk PS Agape. Semoga bisa membantu. Note: Panduan ini

When I went back home in 2002, it was time for the placement announcement for first trimester for elementary students. My little brother was in elementary school, and so I took my mom's place and went with him to take his exam result back. It was nostalgic. My teachers were still teaching (people do not switch career back home). Some of my friends took up teaching. The classroom did not change much. Children were running everywhere and playing the games I used to play. It felt like I was thrown back a decade or two. Then it was time for the general assembly.
