For you who follows me on twitter, I’ve been twitting and re-tweeting lots of stuffs in Indonesian. I hope it doesn’t annoy you.I’ve been talking and sharing/spreading information about Mt. Merapi, world’s most active volcano 40km from my house that had been erupting since October 26th.

It had been said that the eruption this year is the biggest during the last 100 years so I hope nothing bad will happen. I felt almost all the way to selfish when I read my previous post in this blog worrying about myself when hundreds people out there, in the same city don’t even know if where they can sleep tonight.

Mount Merapi is all the way in north Yogyakarta, and my house is in the south side, and for once I am thankful for it. Right now, my cousins are coming to my house because their boarding houses are pretty near (about 20 kms) from the volcano.

I am both sad and proud. It’s never a pleasuring sight to know a disaster, but it makes me proud to see that so many people, my friends, people I know, Yogyakarta’s citizen are all together trying to help each other, being volunteers, donating money, etc. I know I can’t do much but I even the littlest thing counts.

  3. Anyone who thinks it's annoying is completely selfish ... this is such a horrific situation and more people definitely need to be aware of it. I'm praying about it, for sure :( Annnnnd don't think you're selfish either for worrying about yourself; everyone needs to worry about themselves, and you're concerned about what's going on around you, too. I hope everyone will be safe.

  12. This is horrifying, your city is filled with ashes. I just hope you're okay. Are all the roads out completely blocked or something? Should you be temporary moving outside the city? I'm worries for you.
