9 February 2018

My track record of English translation enters the film zone. I just get the news from Bahong that Robi, the manager of Apache 13 (the local band of Aceh), wants us to transcribe and translate his documentary film. The film, which is belonged to the Fair Trade (I do not what company is that), describes the Gayonese coffee farmers’ lives, experiences, and opinios related to coffee trade in Central Aceh.

Fasting is part and parcel of the practices of many religions including, Islam, Judaism and Christianity. Today many are trying to dig up the benefits of fasting. Some people fast for spiritual reasons while others fast as a way to physically discipline the body. Whatever reasons one might come up with, it has been scientifically proved that fasting has tremendous health benefits.

First, fasting is said to play an important role in the detoxification of the body. Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph glands, and skin. This process starts when fasting. Food no longer enters the body and the latter turns to fat reserves for energy. These fat reserves were created when excess glucose and carbohydrates were not used for energy or growth, not excreted, and therefore converted into fat. Continue reading
