Mother's Day - A Tribute for Mother

Mother's job is 24 hours job, not paid, no days off, seldom appreciated, and impossible to resign, but still proud be a mother.

Welcoming Mother's Day on these May, DO NOT send your mother to nursing home. Before you want to do that, hold on! read this first!

So... would you like to bring her back to your home-sweet-home for sharing the love, at least for these great moment. It's depend on you.

Post Update 1 :
Below, I quote a part of comments from LaVonda R. Bailey within this post which I think is her call to us:
"... Women and children are always raped, killed and abused as a part of war and history proves this fact to be true. I have a problem with the government dropping bombs on women and children in Pakistan, because those are women who love and care for their children just like I do and it would be wrong for a country to drop bombs on my neighborhood and kill my children and we as women should believe and and work to stop war around the world so another women does not have to suffer the lost of love one or her home or security. WAKE UP AND UNDERSTAND WE ARE ALL INTERCONNECTED NO MATTER WHAT COUNTRY WE LIVE IN WE ALL LIVE ON THE PLANET EARTH!!"

I think the sad situation on there for Mother's Day.

Post Update 2 :
I am very impressed to the post on Jeanne's blog entitled : Mother's Day For Infertile Patients. Truly this post give a different senses, as Jeanne said in comment :
" Mother's Day post dedicated to infertile patients and the serious emotional impact of Mother's Day on them..."

In these Mother's Day moment, it could be a few couples who you met was being struggle in some kind of battle and you never know when your sincere words by saying Happy Mother's Day have an impact on their heart. Another challenge for Mother's Day.


  1. Happy Mother's Day to your beautiful wife. Thank you for your kind words on my blog. You are a very special person. Give Ely my love.

  2. selamat hari ibu mas, mari kita tidak melupakan jasanya, dan menjaga hatinya, dan juga seharusnya semua perempuan yang menjadi ibu...

    I believe that women we need to honor the true reason that Mother’s Day was created. It was created during the Civil War by a woman who had lost her husband and son in the Civil War and she created this holiday so that women would march in the streets and on Government buildings to tell them to stop the war! She did not want another mother or wife to lose their son or husband and she too, like me believed the true victims of war are the women and children left at home or who lose their love ones.

    Everyday many women have sons and husbands who die in Iraq and that means there is yet another women who now has to figure out how she is going to make it financially, because her partner will no longer be there to help pay the bills or raise the kids they created.

    Women and children are always raped, killed and abused as a part of war and history proves this fact to be true. I have a problem with the government dropping bombs on women and children in Pakistan, because those are women who love and care for their children just like I do and it would be wrong for a country to drop bombs on my neighborhood and kill my children and we as women should believe and and work to stop war around the world so another women does not have to suffer the lost of love one or her home or security.

    Yes Tikno, Mother is everything.. to be honest. It is pity that we are forgetting our roots. This should not happen actually. People need to realize it and realize it fast before its too late.

  24. Liara Covert,

    thanks 4 visiting my blog...

  30. Hi there hope all is well with you... Been a while... take care...

  31. Hi Tikno - thanks for this post about Mother's Day. I do think that in many cases, elderly people cannot be cared for in the family home, because the care requires more staff, with more expertise, than famililes can provide, no matter how willing they are to do so. My father had Alzheimer's, and we got to the stage eventually where he was unmanageable at home. There are great services these days for enabling elderly people to stay in their own homes as long as possible, thankfully. - R

  32. Rachmat,
    You are welcome.

  35. hi! visiting you again.

  36. Hi Tikno, maybe as an update number 3, you can quote some sentences from one nicely written op-ed in thejakartapost couple of days ago. It was about a discrimination against mother, how, in case of divorce, they are often the ones who have to be separated from their children.

  37. Hi Tikno... just checking on your. :)

  38. I am just too too late to wish here. It is all because of my busy days and slow internet connection :(. Anyways better late than never .. Happy belated mothers day to everyone .

  39. Rossel,
    Thank you very much.

    Bung Tobing,
    It's usually happened in eastern culture where the women position seems a little inferior towards men. I think the norms that applying in the community also play an important role.
    Thank you very much for sharing a very interesting story.

    Thank you very much.

    I also quite busy lately. The good news is I have a male baby three days ago.

  40. Tebinfea - Thank you, and welcome.

Effects of internet technology advancement

The rapid advancement of information technology has changed many aspects of human life today, the good and bad things. Within this post I limit on two aspects to make this post not too long to read. The aspects that most get my attentions.

1) Pattern of social interaction.
Frankly I miss the era between the 70s - 90s where my childhood and adolescence with my friends and family. I miss the days when I play marbles with my friends, make paper ships together, play kites, and the like which it called traditional games - maybe still be found in the hamlet or traditional villages. I really enjoy when gather together with friends while drinking beer in real world, Cheers! OMG... truly an emotional excitement sensation that I never found or feel it in the virtual world like Facebook, Instagram, and any social media whatsoever. Now, where smart phones, gadgets and social media has become lifestyles, I'm worried about getting the fact that my daughter likes to interact with her friends thro…

Public holidays 2014 in Indonesia

In August 2014, the Indonesian people have enjoyed the 2 days of national holiday, that is: Eid al-Fitr 1434 Hijri on 8-9 August 2014 and the Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia on 17 August 2014. Approximately four months onward, the year 2013 will end. According to the Chinese calendar, the year of snake will be replaced with the year of horse at the time of the Chinese New Year 2565 on 31 January 2014. For those of you who want to plan the agenda in 2014, need to pay attention to the official national holiday and also the so-called "Cuti Bersama" (en: Joint Holiday) which has been declared by the three ministers on August 21, 2013 in Jakarta, as follows:

STOP the hatred war in the social networking site

Lately, I feel very worried by unscrupulous users of Facebook who already out of the spirit of Facebook motto namely "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life". Some of Facebook users who use this site only for uploading pornographic images and shared it using private setting to certain people (not shared to everyone) and the other using it for spreading the hatred feelings, like a Facebook Group calling for Obama's death.

Although a very controversial Pages on Facebook namely "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" which it created by Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris has been closed by Facebook after receiving protests from various parties including protests from the Indonesian government, the most recent controversy is the two opposing group on Facebook who mocked each other namely: "Everybody Draw Mohammed day (Indonesian version)" and the other one is "Everybody Draw Jesus day (Indonesian version)". As I observed on its la…

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes I know it is a prestigious academic degree. Only that? Hmm... I think NO. It's hard to describe it in words. You better focus on the illustration below:

And... the things that made me fall silent is what was said by Matt, below:
If you zoom in on the boundary of human knowledge in the direction of genetics, there's something just outside humanity's reach. My wife and I chose to start funding these graduate students after we learned that our son has a rare, fatal genetic disorder. It may be too late for my son, but it's not too late for other children. Even one child suffering is one child too many. The only way to end this kind of suffering is science. And, the best way to do science is through graduate students.

What a beautiful thoughts that touched my heart.
Note: This work was originally from The Illustrated Guide to a Ph.D. by Matt Might.
