A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:
Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?
I'm going to be honest of what I'm going to say here. I'm 25 this year. I'm very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above.
You might say that I'm greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York.
My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married?
I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?
Among those I've dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.
If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.
I'm here humbly to ask a few questions:
1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I've met a few girls who don't have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)
A philosophical reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan:
Dear Ms. Pretty,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.
My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I'm not wasting time here.
From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.
Put the details aside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of "beauty" and "money" : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.
However, there's a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can't be prettier year after year.
Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It's not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.
By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a "trading position".
If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or "leased".
Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool.
Hope this reply helps. If you are interested in "leasing" services, do contact me.

this final week of Lenten really challenges me in the way to offer all my life to God. Awalnya, It's really easy, just about hold the hunger-praying-and put all my will down. tapi semakin hari semakin susah. inget nggak pas Yesus dicobai di padang gurun? bukan pada awal2 puasanya Dia dicobai, malah pada saat hari ke 40, dimana rasa lapar dan haus sudah merajai. Now, I know that is when our body is really tired and our flesh arise.
I'm in pain now, terrible pain.
bukan physically but I'm mentally and physiologically in a war.
Ini berawal dari sakit lama, yang aku kira udah sembuh tapi ternyata udah hampir jadi cancer di hatiku.
Awal saat aku datang di Adelaide, seorang teman yang harusnya menjadi satu satunya penolong, malah menyebabkan sakit luar biasa and hurting me so much! even though she has changes and ask for my forgiveness, and I think I forgave her. Even though she doesn't seems really good to me, I'm trying so hard to pull her from her misery life, give her motivation, introduced her to some of my friends, and gave her hope to finding jobs. and I did pull her up, praise Lord for that. I think that was enough to prove that I sincerely helping her, and forgive her. but God seems doesn't happy with it.
One day, I plan to go holiday with my best friends,sesuatu yang sangat private dan biasanya aku nggak suka orang lain masuk kedalamnya. karena satu kondisi, info ini bocor ke diya (dan sekarang aku bocorin di blog ini) dan she asked me whether she can join or not?
OH MY GOD! It was really burst me out! I'm so angry with my self and with the condition that force me dig out all the bitterness that has been buried down in my heart. damn! seriously, in my human thought, Isn't it enough everything that I gave to her? I almost give everything! without asking any paid, besides somehow she continue to hurt my feelings! and now she wants my precious moment? huh??!!!
That thought suddenly appears in my mind, disturbing me, and killing my day. and there is when I realised that something wrong in my heart, something that God's want to ripped of from my life, so that I can purely serve Him as a servant.
I still hardly to forgive her.
For some of us, we may facing the same situation. my friend said : if you want to serve others, what you need is to Loving, support, and forgive . the last words is the hardest one We may think that we have been forgiving someone, but how can you prove that you are sincerely forgive them after what they have done to you? after all the pains that you got, and ripped your heart, do you really forgave them already?
This is my war. and I'm so blessed that during this time, God doesn't let me alone. He gave me Dion to share and to support me. God doesn't want me to stop to share, If He could stop, He doesn't need to sacrifice His life in the cross, It's enough for Him of being hated by human, people rejected him, and threw stone on Him, but still He needs to sacrifice all his life to prove His love to human. and that's what God's want me to do in different way.
This is ho hard for me, and really hurtfull, trust me, I really want to win this test so that I can prove my love to Jesus, and I really do. this final week will be final of all my pain and bitterness.
This is what Dion sent to me this morning, after I flooded of tears last night:

Seriously, I'm not a Tv freak or having training as a "household mother" that always spent the rest of their day in front of TV. but I learn a lot of stuff from the shows. it's not only an entertainment that makes you laugh, but not seldom tears and loads of surprisings
12pm : Ellen Show / Dr Phil
1pm : Oprah
2pm : Dr. Oz
What I'm going to share today is what I get from Dr.Oz ,
A handsome doctor who has heaps of information that really works on me! I didn't know how a doctor can be an entertainer. Well, good on him! makes a lot of money aye! :) . The information is really realistic, like what do you need to care about when winter comes, and I didn't know that showering too long is actually dehydrate our skin, because chlorine that contain in the water does it to our skin. and he suggest us to time our shower not more that 5 mins. heater too, it absorb our skin moist! no wonder my back always itchy every time I wake up in winter, because I always using electrical blanket.
So, one more thing is about constipation. I believe, this is anybody problem as well. When I was in Malaysia, I had been victim of this disease for so long. I have been never "pup" for 5 days, been taking pills, eat loads papaya and banana (that usually works) , drinking Yakult , and eat vegetable. everything I have done to make the rubbish inside my stomach go out. It took my mood away, ruins my day and seriously I can't do anything.
Today Dr.Oz talking about it, I was so happy to watch it and look at it carefully , after he explain and give an demostration about it, He came to the conclusion; the solution is magnesium. He said that most of the time what we eat is helium that consist in every calories from the food that we eat everyday. and we need magnesium to make it smooth. so I'm doing a research where we can find magnesium, so this is it the result from http://ods.od.nih.gov/ :
Green vegetables such as spinach are good sources of magnesium because the center of the chlorophyll molecule (which gives green vegetables their color) contains magnesium. Some legumes (beans and peas), nuts and seeds, and whole, unrefined grains are also good sources of magnesium. Refined grains are generally low in magnesium When white flour is refined and processed, the magnesium-rich germ and bran are removed. Bread made from whole grain wheat flour provides more magnesium than bread made from white refined flour. Tap water can be a source of magnesium, but the amount varies according to the water supply. Water that naturally contains more minerals is described as "hard". "Hard" water contains more magnesium than "soft" water.
maybe what I left was "water". water is really not my favourite, but it's really important. believes or not water cures everthing! So,very morning after you wake up try to drink as much as water you can. tap water is the best, afaraid of dirty is never mind, as long as it can makes your stomach react and buzz all the poisons, really can make a good day for you! . click the picture below to know more about it:
Nah, hopefully this can help you guys with the constipation, because It does give me new knowledge :)

Sebenarnya, istilah ini muncul pas si Regi tiba2 ngomongin istilah itu di meja makan dinner kita bersama romo selasa lalu, dan aku penasaran, apa lagi sich 7 deadly sins itu? Kalo coba buka di Youtube "7 deadly sins" ya itu adalah semua yang sudah dijelaskan melalu History Channel. cukup jamblang indeed, 7 deadly sins is not state in the bibble, itu rangkuman dari pikiran manusia yang kalo dipikir2 ada benernya juga. maybe if the link above is too "theological" for you, you can try to watch the movie 7 deadly sins which starring by well known cast :
rafly about how the sins works among us, and most of the time, we did. this is the summary for every chapter Lust - I watched the beginning of this movie several times, and didn't hear her mention anything specifically on lust, so I have nothing for this one, sorry. Envy - Unrequited lust bites, and it leads to envy. Pride - Pride comes before a fall. It's a super-sized sin. Just ask Lucifer, it got him tossed from heaven. Wrath - Turn kindness inside out and you get wrath. It's the quiet ones who are the most dangerous. Sloth-it brings us down. It stops us. Gluttony - The thing about gluttony is that it's the ultimate selfish act. Greed- If pride is the root of all sin, greed is the sun-kissed fruit. Greed feeds on immediate gratification. Right here, right now. I find out something that regi was talking about the other day, Brad Pitt movie about seven deadly sins. It's kind of horror compare to the movie that I have show you previously, because it is about murderer. the movie called seven Kalo diliat liat lagi serem juga yah, soalnya tanpa sadar kita emang melakukan semua itu, dan itu ada demon di diri manusia. Kalo mau tau lebih lanjut, wikipedia juga menyediakan keterangan tentang ini, sampe di link2 sama nama setan2nya lagi. Don't compromise with any sins, although it's fun and interesting, tapi yang perlu diingat adalah Tuhan count kesetiaan kita bukan cuman pas kita melakukan kebaikan dan tiap kita ke gereja, but to proove our faith in God need the rest of our life. (why 2:10)
"Jangan takut terhadap apa yang harus engkau derita! Sesungguhnya Iblis akan melemparkan beberapa orang dari antaramu ke dalam penjara supaya kamu dicobai dan kamu akan beroleh kesusahan selama sepuluh hari. Hendaklah engkau setia sampai mati, dan Aku akan mengaruniakan kepadamu mahkota kehidupan."
Blog walking : Tuhan itu Maha PengasihMaka sesungguhnya
Tidak ada orang yang lebih daripada Anda,
...dan tidak ada orang yang kurang daripada Anda
Orang yang kelihatannya lebih daripada Anda
adalah dia yang Anda perhatikan kelebihannya
dan yang Anda bandingkan dengan kelemahan Anda
Anda pasti memiliki kelebihan
yang menyeimbangkan Anda dengan siapa pun
Yakinilah ini sebagaimana Anda meyakini keadilan Tuhan

Dia mengajarkan tentang 4 cara mutlak for being humble
- Tunduk dan merendahkan diri dengan apa yang Tuhan perintahkan
- Menghargai hidup, tidak mengingini yang lebih-lebih
- Semua itu milik Allah, and everything that I have now is enough
- Kemiskinan dan penderitaan bersama Kristus.
after I reflected all these things, deeply, menguras habis tenagaku, tentang bagaimana aku harus menghadapi ini, merubah diriku, dan akhirnya aku sampai pada kesimpulan " Aku nggak sanggup Tuhan" flash back to the reflection that I've gone through, setiap point mengingatkanku kepada hal hal yang terjadi belakangan ini dan yang membuat aku goyah.
"aku sich orangnya nggak yang religius religius banget"I'm thingking more deeply about it; apakah diya berbicara tentang aku?. nowadays, tau kan stereotype orang ttg orang yang religius2 banget, arahnya pasti yang ke gereja mulu, sok suci, nggak asik (I have experienced that too). tapi apakah dengan jatuh cinta dengan God, mau menuruti apa kataNya, dan selalu tunduk akan perintahnya termasuk golongan "religius banget?". jujur, aku sempet berfikir "aku nggak mau seperti orang yang diya pikirkan". teringatlah aku akan cerita Petrus yang menyangkal Yesus 3 kali, walaupun diya cinta pada Tuhan namun karena diya nggak mau disamakan sebagai pengikut Kristus, diya menyangkal cintanya.
point kedua: youth in my ages, gimana sich caranya tidak mengingini yang lebih lebih. pasti ada rencana2 ke depan yang kita ingini lebih baik dari sekarang. kayak misalnya I have a really nice house right now, karena September aku mau pindah, otomatis aku cari yang lebih enak atau atleast yg seenak rumahku. jadi aku harus keep in mind kalo aku nggak boleh mikir kayak gitu, what??!
point ketiga: sempet menjadi pergumulan banget soal Blackberry, as you know I am not a Blackberry's users. pas aku ngenalin satu temen baru ke temen yang lain, mereka bisa langsung akrab karena tukeran BBpin terus bisa tau conncetion2 mereka dan alamat, mereka tau banyak orang yang sama. dan jujur sich aku merasa out banget saat itu. So I though to changes with BB padahal aku ngerasa aku nggak terlalu butuh, since aku orangnya juga nggak terlalu suka diganggu. nah perasaan "everything that I have now is enough" itu susah....
point keempat: aku bisa saja dibenci karena aku cinta pada Tuhan. padahal setiap orang kan maunya dicintai.dan dengan disukai banyak orang bisa memperluas koneksi dan masuk ke semua group. haduh berat banget yang ini...
after I come across all the thought, I feel so hopeless, no power, helpless, insecure, and kalo aku mau survive, I need to depends on something that I can't see.. oh God! why it is so hard!. It seems so simple in the word, tapi dengan mengandalkan semuanya kepada Tuhan, tanpa berpikir bahwa yes i can do it, makes me look nggak berguna. suddenly my confidence dropped.
In this time, I feel something fill inside of me.
I am sure now, whatever it is going to cost me,I will keep my self obey...as long as that what God's intended to do in my life. I will break my wall and let Him go inside of me,and let do His will.
and the result was.. everything was excellent, I didn't what I am doing, because that wasn't me. I don't even remember what I said and did untill made them amaze. that's for the Glory of God
2 Cor 12: 7,9
"Dan supaya aku jangan meninggikan diri karena penyataan-penyataan yang luar biasa itu, maka aku diberi suatu duri di dalam dagingku, yaitu seorang utusan Iblis untuk menggocoh aku, supaya aku jangan meninggikan diri.Tetapi jawab Tuhan kepadaku:"Cukuplah kasih karunia-Ku bagimu, sebab justru dalam kelemahanlah kuasa-Ku menjadi sempurna." Sebab itu terlebih suka aku bermegah atas kelemahanku, supaya kuasa Kristus turun menaungi aku".
