But unfortunately she didn’t happy. Well, very happy before the big accident. she was adopted by a rich family. They loved her so much, until one day when the family were going on vacation, they had a big accident, the plane crashed. She was the only one who lived. What a miracle. Her attitude what was very down to earth and low-profile felt like that her house was definitely too big for her, she lived alone there. even the maids and soldiers were still live there. But the kingdom wasn’t going well as it used to be.  Well, she can’t conquer the country, until she thought she might better walked out from her huge luxurious castle. “I rather run away! I just don’t belong here!” she said.
  The moment she packed her bags & her clothes. Some guy came to her room. He told her that he was her guardian. She just cant believe that. “what are you? I dont have any money! I can’t pay you!” “what?! You are not going to pay me! Your parents planned this, they knew that their age were not longer anymore. So one day they came to me and wanted me to be your guardian” “sorry! I don’t believe you” she said frankly. Then she ran & slapped her door. The guy ran afterward her. he told that it was true. He came to the world to company her. to be with her.He sent to be her guardian. The girl still didnt trust him. “where are you going anyway? You have nobody right? So you decide to run away? Hey the world is not safe for you, princess!” “I dont care, i just dont belong here, it is too much for me” “trust you’ll be safe here. I’ll try to protect you as much as i could. Please stay here...” she cried. She felt like so empty. She thought that if her step parents still alive. She wouldn’t through all of this. The guy said “it might be hard from you. But trust me, i’ll help you. It is my duty to stay here!” and the princess said “okay. With one condition, do not ever try to lie to me about this” “i will not, your majesty”
  Day after day. He still tried to convince her. served her foods. Made her bed. Companied her everyday. One day, the princess felt happy again. She felt like she can smile again. The guy. The guy was very funny & smart, attractive. He made her complete again. Until one time, the princess said “You are my Guardian Angel...”

"Where's our conscience" -Astidira Apti

We all know about what has happened in Japan. A tragic lost of our loved ones. A maximum cost that has been caused by the Earthquake and Tsunami. Japan is a developed country, and many of us has knowledge about Japan, their culture and tradition. Some of us even knows how to speak in their Language. There's also a few of Indonesia's citizen who lives there.

When we turn on the tv, when we turn pages of news paper, the headlines are full of Japan. When we see the videos, the pictures, we cant help but held our breath and pray to God. Pray so God will protect the people there, give them strength, and save whats left.

Maybe the tragedi only happens in minutes, but the aftercost, the effects thats been left of the disaster. The nuclear leak, the nuclear exposure. The damage to the country, it has cost more than we can imagine. Tsunami has happened in Indonesia before, in Aceh to be exact. Seeing other country has to deal with it too, breaks my heart. Because most of us, Indonesian citizen knows how it feels to face such thing.

But not all Indonesian Citizen has done such thing to help. Maybe some already helped. But if we know how they felt, how come we dont do something right away? something to ease their pain. Lets just pray for the best. Try to help in every possible way.

A song for japan...

Japan nuclear crisis - Wednesday 16 March

Good morning. There is news just coming from Japan that a surge in radiation at the Fukushima power plant mean workers were unable to continue even minimal efforts to work there.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano has said that work on dousing reactors with water was disrupted when workers were forced to withdraw after radiation levels surged early in the day.
This follows reports that a white plume of smoke has been seen rising from the crippled nuclear plant's No 3 reactor.

Japan's nuclear nightmare continues, as the situation at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi plant remains grave and the latest developments within the crippled reactors show a further deterioration.
Here is a round-up of the latest news:
• Japan's chief cabinet secretary Yukio Edano announced that the containment vessel of the Fukushima Daiichi No 3 reactor is thought to have been severely damaged and may have leaked radioactive steam, emitting high-level radiation.
• Japan's nuclear safety agency required Fukushima plant workers to evacuate the site due to high radiation levels, but the government later upped the legal radiation exposure level, allowing work to continue inside the plant.
• Smoke was seen rising from the No 3 reactor from the early hours of Wednesday morning.
• The No 4 reactor remains a source of major concern, with gaping holes in the reactor's outer building and another fire within the reactor was spotted at 5.45am JST that may have lasted half an hour. The reactor's internal temperature rose to 84C as cooling remained difficult.
• Japan's central bank has injected a further $40bn into the financial markets, meaning that the Bank of Japan has added nearly $330bn in liquidity in the last three days. The Nikkei stock exchange has rebounded a little as manufacturing companies announce the resumption of production.
More bad news: Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said the radiation level at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant reached 10 millisievert per hour at one point on Wednesday morning, possibly due to the damage at its No 2 reactor the day before, the government's nuclear safety agency said.
The maximum level was measured at the plant's front gate at 10:40am. It fell to 6.4 millisievert at 10:45am and to 2.3 millisievert at 10:54am but rose again to about 3.4 millisievert at 11am according to Kyodo
To make sense of all this, it appears that reactor no 4 was badly damaged by the hydrogen explosions in nearby reactors, and it is possible that the unit's water level has disappeared entirely.
Tepco said that water in a pool storing the spent fuel rods may be boiling and that its level may have dropped, exposing the rods. The government ordered the firm to inject water into the pool ''as soon as possible to avert a major nuclear disaster.''
Due to high radiation levels at the reactor, workers have been unable to pour water into the troubled pool.
Japan's health ministry announced the rise in the legal radiation exposure limit because workers could no longer get close enough to the Fukushima Daiichi No 4 reactor for urgent attempts to repair the reactor's cooling system.
The ministry raised the level two and a half times, to 250 millseiverts.
Earlier, Kyodo news agency said 730 out of a total of 800 workers had been evacuated from the site.
"The workers cannot carry out even minimal work at the plant now," chief cabinet secretary Yukio Edano told a press conference. "Because of the radiation risk we are on standby."

A quick update on casualties from the earthquake and tsunami: the national police agency is saying that 3,676 deaths are confirmed and 7,845 people are registered as unaccounted for. But Japanese media have pointed out that many bodies have been found but not identified. The Guardian's Jonathan Watts has reported from Ishinomaki on how authorities are struggling to deal with the dead and are now contemplating mass burials.
Seoul's Yonhap news agency is reporting that South Korea will send part of its reserve of boric acid - used to slow down fission reactions - to its neighbour. Japan has used up most of its own stockpile to try to cool down the reactor cores.
A colleague points out that Couchsurfing has set up a site for people displaced by the disasters. People are offering space in Hiroshima, Osaka, Yokohama and numerous other cities.
More from Fukushima: Reuters is reporting that authorities plan to bulldoze an emergency route to crippled reactor No.4 to allow access for fire trucks, although it appears this morning's blaze is now out. The unit was not operating when the earthquake hit but was storing spent fuel rods.
Kyodo says that workers the facility have been unable to pour water into the pool containing the spent fuel rods because of high radiation levels. Tepco, the plant's operators, are considering spraying the reactor with boric acid from overhead, warning: ''The possibility of recriticality is not zero".
Kyodo has just flashed up a statement that winds are preventing Self Defence Force helicopters from dousing it with water, citing an unnamed minister.
There's a lot of concern about the conditions survivors face. NHK are reporting snow in Miyagi prefecture and the Japanese meteorological agency predicts snow in Iwate today with heavier falls tomorrow. Across the disaster zone, temperatures will drop as low as -5C overnight.
The government's chief spokesman, Yukio Edano, has asked the public not to panic-buy fuel, warning:
''The supply situation for fuel such as gasoline, heavy oil and light oil is worsening in the quake-hit areas."
The defence ministry has announced it is sharing some of its reserves, but needs to hold some back to avoid disrupting the rescue operations.
Private enterprises are offering help but Kyodo reports that the Japan Business Federation's chairman said the government needs a stronger command centre to channel assistance.
