News of the Day

Dear All,

It has been several weeks after my surgery and I feel better and better everyday. I am still taking absent from KabarIndonesia to do my duty and will finish leading online writing course in the next two weeks. I'm planning to be active again at KabarIndoensia in May 2010.

Btw, this time I have a special message for my blogger friend, Mariuca who ever participate in my small event. She was the first person who answered my question correctly that I was pregnant through my Birthday poem (I still owe something for her and I hope she will be interested to participate in my contest). Then in the next two weeks I have to have surgery. Well, my husband and I were fine after we got a news that there was no baby but only growing placenta. Everything happened in life because of God's will and I believe it was the best for me. Till now I still haven't gotten a result for my pathology test. I heard that if I don't get, it means its result is fine. I really hope so. I have tried to call them but till now there is no report, so I thing it will be fine.

Now, what's the next news for my book? This always drives me so excited everytime I would like to announce it. I have heard that KabarIndonesia Executive Director in Netherlands has received my book and he will read it soon. He also would like to plan spreading my book's news via KabarIndoensia. I thank for his generous heart.
