Rainbow Troops/ Laskar Pelangi

so you can give as much as you can,
not to get as much as you can."
Laskar Pelangi (Rainbow Troops)
A Film by Riri Riza

Once in a while, you will find an Indonesian movie that's very good to watch. The value, the pictures, the actors, the story, all in all will move your heart to another place and dimension.
My husband and I took Nadea to watch it this weekend. I think I cried more than my daughter.

Someone once told me,
"You can't live only with your idealism, you must think money oriented."

Watch this movie.
And tell me how far the difference will your life be if you don't live with your idealism.

My idealism is teaching.
No matter how I tried to escape from that calling, it keeps call me back, in many other forms.
I teached my cousins and brothers when I was young.
Then I teach some kids for pocket money when I am at Junior school.
I had an After School Art School for kids for 3 years called KID'S CRAFT, because I believe art should become a habit as young as possible.
Now, I teach scrapbooking to spread the passion of this art that I love.

Is it for fame?
Is it money oriented?
(except, yes, when I did it for pocket money when I was young, money is my number one motivation to do this.)
Is it to brag that a teacher is the cleverest person in the room?
(while I feel that the more I teach, the more hungry I am to study from others, about anything new.)

So, why am I teaching?
I must say, I just want to spread the light that once I had a chance to have in my hand. If you spread the light from your candle, you don't loose even a single spark of your own light. You get back the light by the ray of others that you touch. Indeed, your world is more brighter.
Call it Conscience. Passion. Spiritual Guide. Idealism.
Call it whatever you want to.
I can't live without it.
Thank you, Rainbow Troops, for the gift to my soul.

Please share with me here what's your idealism in life, and how do you think your life will be if you loose it. Or what you feel about the movie.
Have a good day, everyone.

It's a very good movie!! Very touching n inspire people to do everything with heart and reach our dreams. People learn and success when they put away their fear.
Beautiful song by Nidji.
Laskar Pelangi is a "must watch" movie :)

About me
