What's the world coming to?

Picking up another proof that humans are actually the most barbaric species of all: A shaved orangutan used as a sex slave. So bad that it happened in my own country, Borneo, Indonesia. Here's I copy the conversation between VICE and Michelle Desilets, a director of Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation. Be ready and take a deep breath.

Michelle Desilets [Director of the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation]: Pony is an orangutan from a prostitute village in Borneo. We found her chained to a wall, lying on a mattress. She had been shaved all over her body.

I want to cry.

If a man walked near her, she would turn herself around, present herself, and start gyrating and going through the motions. She was being used as a sex slave. She was probably about six or seven years old when we rescued her, but she had been held captive by a madam for a long time. The madam refused to give up the animal because everyone loved Pony and she was a big part of their income. They also thought Pony was lucky, as she would pick winning lottery numbers.

Did the clients realize that they were in fact getting an orangutan?

Oh yeah, they would come in especially for it. You could choose a human if you preferred, but it was a novelty for many of the men to have sex with an orangutan. They shaved her every other day, which meant that her skin had all these pimples and was very irritated. The mosquitoes would get to her very badly and the bites would become septic and be very infected, as she would scratch them constantly. They would put rings and necklaces on her. She was absolutely hideous to look at.

How did you get her away from there?

It took us over a year to rescue her, because every time we went in with forest police and local officers we would be overpowered by the villagers, who simply would not give her up. They would threaten us with guns and knives with poison on them. In the end it took 35 policemen armed with AK-47s and other weaponry going in there and demanding that they hand over Pony. It was filmed by a local television crew and in the background of the film when we are unchaining Pony you can hear the madam crying hysterically, screaming, “They are taking my baby, you can’t do this!” There is no law enforcement in Indonesia so these people didn’t face any sentence or anything for what they had done.

Poor Pony... Well actually it happened long time ago but still this accident couldn't out of my mind since it was sooo embarrassing and pathetic.

i'm blessed

this month has been going to be the hardest month ever in this year, to me. He gave me huge insecure feeling which made me thinking God i could stand it anymore, God i gave up, God i was out. but then i knew that blessings are often disguised as pain first. He denied my request.....totally let down. God is good, He guided me trough, gave me strength to accept whatever i couldn't have. He covered up my tears with laughter. so all this time i just realized and felt so blessed that He kept blessing me always...couldn't stop saying hamdalah for everything. seemed like life's getting better and easier day by day, everything's going okay eventhough shits happened sometimes. He has planned something better for me? yes i guess. God is fair, yknow:) 






my favorite look currently. well bye Jun and Hi Jul! smooch xx

so im still enjoying my holiday...no i didnt have great holiday such traveling to dream places like Paris France or Rome or Grand Canyon USA, but i went to a village in Pare Kediri, East Java. actually Indonesian called Pare as Kampung Inggris because here was the English education center in Indonesia. there were hundred English institutes that you could choose, such as OXFORD, PEACE, etc. you could take some classes also like speaking, grammar, TOEFL, IELTS, vocabulary, pronunciation. i obviously knew that my english is still low, so that was why i lived in Pare for two weeks..to improve my english skill. i only took 2 classes, TOEFL and speaking class. my toefl score was not that good but i felt satisfy with my speaking score hehe..in there i lived in english camp area, that was 24 hours using full english (no Bahasa) and it was so fun! at the first maybe we could say a sentence "how to say blablabla..." if we didnt know how to say that something in english, but then we have to use english and got punishment if we broke the rules! i loved living there due to there were sprawling fields that i visited in morning also evening, to see beautiful sunset. also no pollution because mostly people there used bicycle to go, just same like me. i also rented a bicycle to go to somewhere. living in there really taught me about everything, not only about english language. one of those all was...it really taught me the real meaning of starving hahaha you know i never ever lived far away with my parents, and now i lived far away for them for two weeks and i have to manage everything by my self, manage my own money, manage my breakfast/lunch/dinner by my own. usually in the morning my mom always made me a breakfast and a glass of milk, but at that time i made my own milk and cereals...well i was being independent. i met new people also all over Indonesia, that was great. i had my little family that i loved here, really. im going to back there, soon.
at the end of this trip, then i traveled to Mt. Bromo! it's been a long time since my last visited here...and as always, i was struck with the spectacular view on Mt. Bromo, damn beautiful. i didnt take many photos because sadly i didnt bring my camera, that was only some photos taken by ipad. anyway..between a thousand happiness, God always remind by one problem. God gave me happiness that never stop, but then He gave me a problem. so buddies, i lost my wallet there.....i didnt know exactly how it happened, but i did sure that i put it in my backpack, and i always brought my backpack with me. there were also my blackberry and ipad, but thanks God i just lost my wallet. oh stupid me, i brought cash money and i put it all in my wallet. all money. thanks for reminding me, God. whatta memorable trip.

after spending my time in East Java, i spent the rest of my holiday in West Java, Bandung...just took a little time in Bandung, and then back to hometown, Central Java, and spend my time with my bed. that's a real holiday.
