Thank you very much for all bloggers who always support me to continue my blogging hobby. Never stop learning.
If it is not done from now, then when? That is one of the basic questions of several changes and developments that make Gereja Katolik Santo Fidelis Sejiram increasingly known and get a great attention from various parties, both from the people who live around Sejiram and from outside the region, and from the Catholic Church to the Government. This is because Gereja Katolik Santo Fidelis Sejiram has become the most valuable heritage in Sejiram which has reconstructed several times, both heavy and light reconstructions. Even so, it does not reduce the value and its meaning to make it as a historical building which has a very important role for the development of Catholics that originated from Sejiram Village, Seberuang District, Kapuas Hulu Regency, West Kalimantan Province.
In 2018, Gereja Katolik Santo Fidelis Sejiram has been reconstructed which focused on the aspects of the initial building structure when the church was first built. Father Yohanes Sukiman, CP as a parish priest strongly supports that reconstruction and together with the support of all the local people have tried their best efforts to finish the reconstruction. Hopefully, this reconstruction will further increase the longing for local people to further enhance the familiarity of Catholics to Jesus Christ. Amen.

From a simple line to be an artwork.
Don’t stop learning.
There are many stories about life and that is a reason why there are many people tend to be interested to someone’s life. We have our own life story. So, make it becomes an interesting story for other.
The photograph above is the statue of Saint Fidelis in Gereja Katolik Santo Fidelis Sejiram.
Because we have learnt that we can live by our own way, we must consider many things when we choose our life out of reach.
We may still stand for a while, but the first we must be consistent because we have to defend what we have done and continue what we have started.
Hatch. Hatch. Hatch.
Every living thing can not stand alone and you will need the other in your life. They are your brothers whoever they are.
A band of brother will rise soon even though there are some of them will not survive. Wait for them to grow up, because you can not see their future.
Even the colours we see every day will not have meaning if there is no light.
In time, you will understand:
There are more like you out there struggling to get the true meaning of their life.
An ant is crawling among the flowers of Engkudu tree. When we are on top of something, remember that there is another part where we could be on it someday.
It does not matter if we spend our break time with different ways. See these beautiful dragonflies which we name ensibuh in Dayak language in Sejiham. They have different ways in perching. When I took these photographs, I had to come closely and quietly moved my handphone to capture these beautiful moments.
A green thing – besides another colourful thing – can make us feel fresh when we feel tired or bored. Enjoying nature with many green things is an easy way to get full recovery of mind because the green thing can influence us to feel much new energy.
Today’s weather is hot. It is definitely hot. Even the fly has to hide behind a leaf. Even though there is a great problem coming to us, just keep calm and face it with patience, because a hot day in our life will be over when its time comes.
In Sejiram, many people use this plant – senggang – to make tikar (a woven mat) which is used as a daily mat and also to dry paddy during the hot weather. These photographs are the fruit of senggang which can be eaten, even though its taste is sour.
From nothing became something.
When we want to express our ideas into a great work, just imagine and do what we want to do because that is an expression of a creative mind.
It is believed – by Dayak people in Sejiram – that there is a kind of beautiful mushroom called Kulat Buah as a sign that fruit season will begin soon.
