Testing a Video Clip

Thanks to Mona’s visits, I woke up this morning to find out that we have had quite a number of visitors plus few comments. I didn’t expect that much visitors yet, since I haven’t announced it in other mailing lists, awaiting Pak Budi’s arrival back in Singapore from the Big Apple.

Since I have little time to kill this morning, let’s have some fun with a video clip with the children there. (please click on [more] to continue)…

This clip was from Pak Budi and it was originally uploaded to our private mailing list as a test file by our man in Singapore – Soleiman Pello a.k.a Yongky. (Thanks Yongky). Well, I haven’t had a chance to talk to pak Budi to verify the ownership of this clip. However, I have converted it into a wmv version to reduce the size hence the download time. In case if this video wasn’t taken by pak Budi, I’m sure he has gotten the permission from the owner. Please forgive me for uploading it without asking the owner’s permission. After all this is a test of the video link feature and I can take it down any time.

If you could watch this clip and you happen to be there at that time or you know the name of the game, would you please let us know what game is it? I don’t recognize it as a game we played when I was a little kid in Kupang. Is this a Singaporean play? Once thing for sure, the children and even the families around the Orphanage area were very happy with the Seedling Fission Team’s visit. Both pak Buddy and ibu Peggy as well as the team did a great job!

 

Our First Blog Entry

After few long distance discussions and email exchanges, finally Captain Budi and I decided to add this blog as a mean to update the information on Roslin Orphanage in Matani, a small town near Penfui El Tari Airport in my old hometown, Kupang, Timor, Indonesia.

I became interested in Roslin Orphanage when a member of Bolelebo mailing list, Mrs. Nanik Trickey from Washington State mentioned about Captain Budi’s involvement in Mobile Library for the students from the villages around Kupang. We have been talking about the possibility of collecting the books from the United States then sent them to Kupang with the list members…

I then started to search on the Internet and found all the information about Roslin Orphanage and Captain Budi and his wife, Mrs. Peggy’svolunteer works in Kupang. (It was funny that I just found out today the original posting of Nanik on Singapore Rotarians Forum about this mobile library project while searching to add the link on mobile library project to this blog). Based on all the information I got and additional discussions through a private mailing list Bolelebo, particularly after knowing Captain Budi’s family involvement with Singapore Airline and Rotary Club activities in helping the children in Kupang, I then decided to give a helping hand by setting up this weblog. We hope that this weblog will help to diseminate any information that needs to be diseminate quickly and widely, and provided a centralized links to all related activities around the globe in conjunction with the work at Roslin Orphanage.

It’s fortunate that during this preparation, Captain Budi has flown to NY twice and we have more discussions over the phone on various topics, before we (Captain Budi and I) finally decided to get this blog up and running on this Easter Sunday. Since Captain Budi was unable to use his computer in New York today then I have to fill this entry to make it officially starts before the end of the day. However, from now on both Captain Budi and I will collect all the information to update you all through this blog. If you have any comment or suggestion to help the mission of Roslin Orphanage and all the projects involved, please feel free to let us know by filling out the comment below.
