Every day working in front of the computer, studying about computer, having fun with computer, etc….. One of my favourite books (System Analysis and Design Methods) told me wonderful thing that hopefully could keep us on the tract as a white hat, “The Ten Commandments of Computer Ethics”:

1. Thou shalt not use a computer to harm other people

2. Thou shalt not interfere with other people’s computer work

3. Thou shalt not snoop around in other people’s computer files

4. Thou shalt not use a computer to steal

5. Thou shalt not use a computer to bear false witness

6. Thou shalt not copy or use propietary software for which you have not paid

7. Thou shalt not use other people’s computer resources without authorization or proper compensation

8. Thou shalt not appropriate other people’s intelectual output

9. Thou shalt think about the social consequences of the program you are writing or the system you are designing

10. Thou shalt always use a computer in ways that insure consideration and respect for your fellow humans

Thanks for the Computer Ethics Institute….. ^^

Tea Wisdom

Below, there some “Wisdom” taken from Tea Wisdom Inspirational Quotes and Quips About the World’s Most Celebrated Beverage. Let’s take a look:

A true warrior, like tea, shows his strength in hot water. (Chinese Proverb)

An elder tea master was invited to a session held in the capital. The noble who sponsored the event meant to test him. As the master was walking down the path to the tearoom, a gun was fired. In awe, all the guests noticed that the master’s pace had not wavered in the slightest when the shot startled those that had known about it all along. His practice in the Way of Tea had established his awareness beyond the world of dust. (A.D. Fisher)

Though I cannot flee from the world of corruption, I can prepare tea with water from a mountain stream and put my heart to rest. (Ueda Akinara)

If a man hasn’t any tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty. (Japanese Proverb)

There were two good friends, Chokei and Hofuku. They were talking about the Bodhisattva’s way, and Chokei said, “Even if the arhat (an enlightend one) were to have evil desires, still the Tathagata (Buddha) does not have two kinds of words. I say that the Tathagata has words, but no dualistics words.” Hofuku said, “Even though you say so, your comment is not perfect.” Chokei asked, “What is your understanding of the Tathagata’s words?” Hofuku said, “We have had enough discussion, so let’s have a cup of tea!” (Shunryu Suzuki)

Bright is the setting sun over Kongming Peak, Harder yet for people of Mt. Wuyingshu to seek. The site of wind and sacrificial alter rise even today. And people sit and talk of past and present for aye. Tea seeds left by Zhuge Liang bring prosperity for long. From green mountains, I’m startled by a teapicking song. (Traditional Chinese Poem)

Zhaozhu, Great Master Zhenji, asked a newly arrived monk, “Have you been here before?”  The monk said, “Yes, I have been here.” The master said, “Have some tea.”  Again, he asked another monk, “Have you been here before?” The monk said, “No, I haven’t been here.” The master said, “Have some tea.”  The temple director then asked the master, “Why do you say, ‘Have some tea’, to someone who has been here, and ‘Have some tea’, to someone who has not?”  The master said, “Director.”  When the director responded, the master said, “Have some tea.” (Dogen – Zenji)

The spirit of tea is the spirit of Zen; there is no “spirit of tea” independent of the spirit of Zen. If you do not know the taste of Zen, you do not know the taste of tea. (Sen Jakuan Sotaku)

If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are too heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you. (Gladstone)


That’s all for now ……….. ^^

Sat on the terrace, hearing the bird songs and the wind blows,
A cup of tea gave me calmness on meditation,
Voices of pouring tea stopped bird singing,
There only silence and peace.

Smell of natural tea fragrance went through my breath,
Felt liked smell of universe,
Released my energy,
And kept we awaken.

People said that I’m one of the most difficult person to eat. But I do not agree with them, so sorry…. Cause I have so many references of good places to eat, but might be they are not interested in.

Last few weeks I’ve tried some restaurants, and I found new favourite drinks (mix of bluberry, honey, and yogurt). It’s so nice and blast………. yummy….. ^^
We can find it in the Pan O restaurant – Pacific Palace Mall. There I also tried the coint pan cake. Wao…. great lunch, hehehe. At the time I ordered mushroom soup (a bit plain but really nice), mix juice, and coint pan cake. Hmmmm….. I love it..!!

Another place is Tiamo. It’s one of Italiano resto in Pacific Palace mall. Generally nothing I could eat, cause mostly the menu are not vegetarian. But… there one menu called sphagetti mushroom with cheese souces. Firstly it looks like ordinary sphagetti, but when the waiter serve it, wao…… it so big and so nice. Hmmm, great taste, worth for 70K rupiah. The environment so unique, totally different with the others. They have fairy castle ^^. When we come in, there oldy smell (all stuff are hand made – wooden stuff), so many old pictures, and fairy status hanging every where, with the flower exactly. The point is… it such of a very nice place to eat.

Then one day I’ve ate in Pawon restaurant, located in Bintaro. From outside it looks like a house, ordinary house, family house. When we enter the lobby, hmmm… nothing special, but after that there very nice place. They set the environment as Javanese style, with traditional music and stuff. Talk about menu, hehehe I thought it’s not the best place for me. Things I only can eat are “pecel” and “tahu”, but the taste is too sweet or too hot or …. (not my taste exactly). But I love the environment and the way they serve foods. They’re using white ceramics, and use long plate to serve “nasi kuning”. Wao…. a bit strange, but coolllllll ^^

I thought that’s enough for tonight. Later on I’ll continue to tell you guys… about food ^^
