Can Martial Arts Training Give Benefit to Your Children?

Martial arts training have been proved to create self-control and discipline as well as build a respect for authority figures and develop children's generally self-image and health.

Enhance Concentration, Self-control, and Discipline
Most martial arts programs value the traits of concentration, self-control and discipline. Intense concentration is often required to make sure safety and to learn the steps of a new technique. This can be especially challenging for children who have ADD or ADHD.

Giving the child or teen an activity to focus on with predictable, repeatable steps where he/she can be successful is the key to build increased concentration.

Furthermore, once the child or teen comprehends that the course is strictly controlled in order to encourage safety and respect, the child will also learn to better control his/her speech and actions so as not to speak out at wrong times or disturb the other students in the class.

Increase Motivation and Academic SuccessBecause martial arts are proposed to build character, effort and achievements are often rewarded. This can motivate some students to work harder in school. And, for those who are already successful, it offers well-deserved acknowledgment of their accomplishment. (

Two weeks ago, I saw these children training Taekwondo in Sempur field. My entry for Ruby Tuesday.

I shared a little about Basic Accounting to the metal craftsman.

We, the girls, were sharing various things to the village women. We've done it every week.

Together with a cow farm nearby, we distributed fresh cow milk to all children at one primary schooll in the village. When I was there, the schooll was still in soil floor.

Since at that time the farmers still used inefficient way, my friend shared how to build a tool to release unhulled paddy from straws more efficiently

Sky Watch : Pale Sun

These pale sun moments were captured at different times and places. What’s the similarity? There’s no bright color in the sky, just a pale sun and dark clouds. Does the pale sun make your day becomes a gloomy one?

Poem of a gloomy afternoon
by ~Felicias

A pale sun rises behind bluish clouds,
peeping as if it were saying "What's up?
No more rain to come?"
Shadows cast by the trees are chasing each other along the path,
like tiny little ghosts formed by thin shapes.
The mountains watch over the green grass
covered by flowers and bushes.
But suddenly...
A black speck becomes bigger and bigger
growing circle-shaped-like
covering everything with sinister oscurity.
Black, complete darkness! No way of escape!
Slowly flowers and bushes are covered by the darkness
disappearing into nowhere.
A silent night has finally come!

Nostalgia: My Grandfather and Grandmother

I was in my Grandma's hug
All people on this photo have passed away. It's one family gathering at our home.

Another family gathering at our home. Only three people that are still alive.

This time I’ll share old photos of the late grandfather and grandmother (in my father’s side). When I am a child and we still stay in Bandung (West Java. Indonesia); Grandpa and Grandma were always coming every month to get grandpa’s pension fund. That’s why my parents prepared one special bed room at our home for them.

My Grandpa (I called him Aki Sadli) was a very quiet man. My Grandma (I called her Nini Gurat) was a beautiful old woman and more talkative. I remembered her soft voice and she often grabbed my hand while she was walking. As my Grandpa and Grandma frequently spent the nights at our home, my aunts and uncles were also often came to our house.

But since we had to move to Surabaya (East Java, Indonesia), I became seldom seeing my Grandpa and Grandma. Each year, every Eid ul-Fitr holiday, we visit them to celebrate the Eid ul-Fitr with other relatives. Grandpa died when he’s 80 years old and my Grandma died when she reached her 92 years of age.

Though they have passed away long time ago, their home is still taken care of well (I’ve ever made several posts about Grandpa’s home). I’m so proud with my father, all uncles and aunts; they make a commitment to care for all heritages of my Grandma and Grandpa. I hope, we and other grandsons and granddaughters, can also maintain their valuable inheritance. We have a plan to visit my Grandpa’s home in the short time, wish we can make it.

Inside the Train

I stay in Bogor, a little city near Jakarta (the capital city of Indonesia). For us, Bogor people, train is a very popular public transportation. This is a common view inside the train (Pakuan Bogor-Jakarta) that you’ll see every morning in week days. Lots of Bogor people use this commuter train to reach Jakarta; as they only work in Jakarta and still prefer to stay in Bogor.

When the photo was taken, the train has just arrived. That’s why the train wasn’t yet full. If the departure time has been near; you can see lots of people standing inside. When I worked in Jakarta several years ago, I also used train to reach my work place, for about three years. I have lots of memories with the train, as I met many new friends and also my first love there, hehehe.

Another Flowering Shrub

I think these flowers look like jasmine. I don’t know the flower’s name. I’ve browsed to search it; but still no luck. I can’t smell the scent of these flowers; but this butterfly seems too busy to know my presence.

This plant belongs to my neighbor; their house is rather far from ours. Perhaps I should ask the owner.

For Your Safe and Personalized Breast Augmentation or Reconstruction

Everyone admires the beauty of women’s breasts, especially the woman herself. There’s no doubt, breasts are one of women’s proudness. A woman always appraises her breasts as one valuable part of her body. Since every woman is unique; there are not the same size and shape of breasts, each woman has her own size and shape. Most women want to have healthy and beautiful breasts for increasing their self-confidence and whole appearance.

Have you noticed that -in pursuing healthy and beautiful breasts- there is increasing amount of women who decide to choose
breast implant surgery? For a woman, there are many motives to consider having a breast augmentation, one well-known method for increasing women’s breast size. Some women assume breast augmentation as a way to improve self esteem and get back their femaleness emotion.

I have one sister-in-law who has ever been diagnosed with breast cancer and must have a mastectomy two years ago. The mastectomy has caused her to loose her left breast. She has ever told me that she feels incomplete as a woman; and I can really understand her sadness. When she thought of having
breast implant, I give my support and advice her to search more information about breast reconstruction.

In the US, more than 180,000 women every year are detected with breast cancer. It’s a sad but true fact, as there are many women who must undergo mastectomy each year. Breast reconstruction could be the best option for these women. By placing the right
breast implants during the breast reconstructive surgery, women who become mastectomy patients can obtain their life back as complete women. This method can help many women run through their life ahead in more confidence.

Before deciding to get breast augmentation or breast reconstruction, consulting to an expert is a must thing to do. Safety, compatibility and longevity should be your most concern on choosing the right breast implant.
