Story Telling: The Fox and The Crow

everybody must have known the story: The Fox and The Crow (click here for the flash version)

Crystal also does. 

however, here is modified version by Crystal
Since the crow has been cheated by the fox, 
she gets smarter.
After the fox praised the crow to have beautiful voice and asked her to sing for him,
the crow would still sing, however .. 
she sang by biting the meat.
(*then Crystal would sing as if she were singing with her teeth biting a piece of meat*)

And here is mom’s version.
Since the crow has got smarter, 
the fox can’t cheat her anymore.
Instead, the fox would beg her, like this: 
"My dear nice lady crow,
I’ve not been eating anything for several days.
Look at my belly .. it is soooo flat.
When you’ve had enough meat for yourself.. 
please help me get some more meat."
And the nice crow agrees to help the fox.
She brings another piece of meat and throws it to the fox. 
The fox thanks the crow for saving him from hunger.
Since that, they’ve become friends.

"NO OFFENSE... IT'S JUST FOR FUN"

just knew "google reader"

payah nih kalo gablog! 

i just got to know that in blogger dashboard there is a link to "view in Google reader".
as i ever said, i had the link for wordpress or multiply blogs, but i couldn't open those blogs. 

i just got to know that those postings (wordpress or multiply) could be viewed with google reader.  (*ooooooh... ternyata ... baru tau ... kasian deh...!*)

but ..  
i havent figured out how to comment. seems .. i couldn't give any comment via google reader, only reading

does anyone know any similar website like google reader, can read and can also comment?  


aduh maap .. gablog neeeh ...(*gagap blogging*) ... 


some minor problem, when using google reader, some posting from wordpress such as dian's blog"siapa yang bayar" ... i could only read first 4 lines, after that, it appeared like this  .. Yang[...] 
but i could read the complete story for Dian's posting from and before 11-Nov.

lha .. ini bagaimana sih?!!!

are you addicted to Facebook?

The Huffington Post posted a list over the weekend of the Top Ten signs that you're addicted to facebook

Here they are.  

1. Facebook is your home page.*so far i'm still addicted to blogging.. *

2. You update your status more than twice a day.

3. You have over 500 "friends," half of whom you've never actually met.*haven't hit 500*

4. As soon as you step away from your computer, you're on Facebook on your mobile phone, blackberry, iphone, etc.  *don't have blackberry or iphone*

5. You are a Facebook stalker. you click on someone's profile more than once a day even if they haven't messaged or tagged you in a photo; have dragged and dropped more than 3 FB photos (not from your own profile); and actually go to a place mentioned on someone's page in hopes of seeing them in real life...creepy!

6. You change your profile picture more than a 12-year-old girl. *just once,trying to use photo-sketch*

7. You have checked your FB page while reading this article. *reading this article and posting it in my blog.. hahaha...*

8. You clean up your "wall" so it looks like you spend less time on FB.*just knew there was such function*

9. You are a member of more than 10 groups and respond to every event invitation "attending" even if you have no intention of going.

10. You change your relationship status just to mess with people.

 

so... are you addicted already? 

to all dear friends that send me flowers, trees, or other kinds of invitations, i deeply apologize if i click "no-thanks" or "ignore". i don't mean to be rude. the reason is bcoz there is always one click after another click. for me, indeed it's too time consuming. again, so sorry..
