Two Sides

When I was in Canada, the norm there is for every house to have an electric stove. Only the rich can afford gas stove. The salesmen pitch their sales saying "Using gas stove, your food will taste better. Cook it the way it's meant to be -- with fire."

Now I am in Indonesia, where gas stove is the norm. Electric stove is expensive. And of course, the sales people are saying "Using electric stove is safer. No risk of fire."

There is always another side to a point of view. ^_^

Actually a good stove is one that can produce high heat (high BTU). Induction cooker that go above 3000W are rare (and expensive). But it is easier (aand somewhat cheaper) to get high-powered gas burner.

And hence the difference. The rich guy in Canada probably has their love in culinary and would like to cook (themselves) with the best tools. The rich guy in Indonesia don't even cook (why give expensive stuff for maid to use?). They just eat outside.

You have a point, penguin. It is actually easier to cook in Canada than in Indonesia. Maybe partly because people have maid in Indonesia.

Home-cooked meals are healthier, though, so I don't know about eating every meals out. Hmm...

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

Do Re Mi...

After about 9 years of not translating musical notation to doremi notation, I realized that Indonesia is VERY resistant to the idea of learning to sing some other way. While I think it's redundant and totally unnecessary, other people don't see it that way. And being in the minority, I have to give in. It means... back to doremi for me. >_< What bothers me most though, is the fact that I have tons of good songs that I would love to sing with my choir here, but it's not possible without translating it to doremi first. And since I hate manual dots and slashes, I decided to create a doremi font. It's not perfect, but for those who are stuck with this fate, I hope it helps. Download the DoReMi font here Directions : 1234567 = works as usual Shift + 1234567 = with dot on top qwertyu = 1234567 with dot below i = 1 with double dot on top asdfghj = 1234567 with forward slash (up half step) zxcvbnm = 1234567 with back slash (down half step)
