We (Procomm) had our very first mission trip to Abigael El-Shadai Orphanage and SDN 007, in collaboration with The Channel.
We break into two teams and I was assigned to Abigael El-Shadai Orphanage. Upon arrival, we did a little praise, ice breaker, and had lunch. We also teach the children about personal hygiene education and held a mini tooth brush competition.
I would like to give a special thanks to the committee for making this trip a remarkable one. Teeheeeee.

Ever since all of us were tied up with our thesis, we rarely hangout.
I’m glad that we are able to catch up with one and another once again when celebrating Lydia, Wina, and Vivi birthday.
Looking forward for more meetup and may this little friendship last.
Couldn’t be more happier with my decision to join church camp!
The event itself was held on 11th September – 13th September, at Harris Resort Hotel Batam, costing @ Rp850.000 for 3D2N.
Although there were some people who said that it’s a little pricey, I personally find it worth it mainly because of the speaker, Pak Boyke Gozali (Indonesian conglomerate) and Pak Jarot Wijanarko (author and owner of PT. Happy Holy Kids)
Woah, lots of joyous moment happens in June! There were numerous birthday celebration and wedding invitation. I can hardly count… but somehow I manage to summarized it.
*Ce Leni’s Birthday – 2nd June*
It was an impromptu and belated birthday surprise though. But… It’s the thought that counts. Happy birthday Ce Leni! May God bless you abundantly. Looking forward to receive your wedding invitation soon. Teehee!
*Awan’s Birthday – 4th June*
I believe it’s in the 4th of June. I’m not that sure. Thank you Frengky for inviting me. Anyway, I don’t really have a proper picture during Awan’s birthday, sorry!
Happy birthday yah Awan! May your career blossom into a highly successful one.
*Dino’s Birthday – 14th June*
Thank you Wenny for inviting me to celebrate Dino’s birthday. Although things didn’t turn out as expected, but all of us still had fun.
Happy birthday Dino! If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be joining any cell group or a church community, thank you. I wish you the best riches with God. Teehee.
*Rischa’s Birthday – 18th June*
Thank you Andre for inviting me! Guess what, I have the same date of birth as Rischa.
Happy birthday Rischa! I pray that you will serve God wholeheartedly. Keep up the good work!
*My Birthday – 18th June*
Thank you my dearest Kristian and Yeni for the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette and also the souvenir you guys bought from London. I LOVE IT!
I also earnestly thank my cell group, Procomm 8, for giving me a surprise. It was unexpected since most of you like to bluff (Andre, Rainner, Willi).
To #KITA2AJHA, sorry that I can’t join the birthday surprise that you made for me and Wime. I just want to have a quality time with family. But thank you anyway.
*Yuni’s Birthday – 27th June*
I wasn’t invited for the surprise though, only had dinner with Yuni’s cell group and they suddenly walk towards Yuni with a cake. It was a surprise to me too. Hahaha.
Happy birthday Yuni! Have a little faith and confidence! I think that when we put a smile on our face, we can look beautiful too!
*Debby’s Wedding – 29th May*
Wishing you happiness and love like the unending circle of your wedding ring. Congratulation to a wonderful couple, Irvan and Debby!
*Ce Oline’s Wedding – 19th June*
Ce Oline, be a virtuous woman stated in Proverbs 31. Two are better than one, cheers Ko Steven and Ce Oline!
Excuse my weird and unnatural pose.
*Ce Esther’s Wedding – 21st June*
Ce Esther, may you live happily ever after! Congratulation Ko Wawan and Ce Esther.
During Chinese New Year each of us will say a 4 chinese words saying to every people that we visit. It is something similar to Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. This year Chinese New Year is on the 8th of February. Chinese New Year is a Chinese festival where we start our new year. We then visit our relatives and close friend’s house, eat cakes, cookies, and drinks.
Mom would always challenge me and my siblings to say a new 4 chinese words saying each year before she give us angbao. My brothers and I used to be so excited on every Chinese New Year, because we received angbao (red packets) from every people that we visit. But as we grew older, Chinese New Year became a very tiring day because we would visit everyone for the whole day. Angbao is a monetary gifts and it’s is for luck to those who give and received.
I have a younger brother in Bandung and he can’t balik kampung (come back to Batam), so we did skyping.
For this year Chinese New Year, I spent my first and second day visiting pastor’s and church friend’s house, since my relatives are overseas.
Church friend – Visiting Pak Julianus house
Church friend – Visiting Pak Erwin house
Here’s the meaning of my 4 chinse word saying!
新年快乐. 恭禧发财. 红包拿来.
Xin Nian Kuai Le. Gong Xi Fa Cai. Hong Bao Na Lai.
新年 (New Year) 快乐 (happiness/joy/rejoice).
恭禧 (congratulations/wishing with joy) 发财 (become rich/may luck or fotune fall on us)
Thank God that I managed to retrieve a few pictures from my Whatsapp backup data! Or else, there are no pictures for me to post.
Anyway, this year’s Christmas and New Years Eve, I had a great time with my family and friends.
*23rd December, 2015*
On the night of 23rd December, me and my families went to my cousin’s home, Sukarman, for a little celebration. He is getting married on Christmas Eve. I didn’t really get a lot of pictures though, because I was busy eating and playing with my nieces and nephews.
Me busy eating!
My niece – NingNing
My nieces – NingNing, Lele, and Lala
After from my cousin’s place I directly went to Teastory Cafe, together with church’s friend.
*24th December, 2015*
24th December is the day of my cousin’s wedding. I was so busy from noon until night, because there are a few people that I need to fetch, also had to get myself ready for makeup as my cousin asked to be listing guest that came to his wedding.
Lisa, Sukarman, Ariez, Sofia
Wefie – Sofia, Lisa
Family-fie with the groom and bride
After finish makeup – Lisa, Sofa
Due to my cousin’s wedding I can’t go to church. There are an event at church and surely my friends had a good time. They even took a lot of pictures!
So sad that I am not part of it T____T.
After from church, they continue to gather at McD, because Wenny Mok made strawberry shortcake and shared the cake with everyone. I am so sorry that I couldn’t list out each of their name in the pictures below, there are just way too many of them.
*25th December, 2015*
The morning of 25th December, me and my younger brother went to church. My friends had a musical drama performance about how God have saved us humans. You can find their drama on the link below. But fyi, the video below is not a complete one because the drama has already started a while.
On the night of 25th December, me and my father’s side family had a small gathering. We all had fun and played JustDance and cards.
*31st December, 2015 – 20th January, 2016*
Had BBQ with my mother’s side family. There are no pictures (I am so so so sorry!), only pictures about food 🙂
And on January (I forgot which date it is), me and church’s friends went to the orphanage. They distribute some daily necessities and also food. I didn’t made any donation because it was an impromptu trip.
Lastly, before my younger brother head to Bandung, my families and I had steamboat as an advance reunion dinner.
Simon, Sofia, Joseph, Mely, Pernando
This is the end for this post. It is getting late, I have work tomorrow, and I need my shower.
