regarding with our new destination at Jogjakarta of natural things.
I create new tour for foreigners namely Amazing AgricultureTour in which the tour is dealing with the organic food and drink come all together with the process of making and going through the plantation or garden directly to harvest.
The programme is
1.Harvesting coffee,roasted,grindered n drink it
2.Process of making rice on rice field until harvesting
3.How to make cigarette in organic way, using dry corn leaf and organic tobacco with no chemical things included
Also we would like foreigners to know how to make clothing with traditional tools, doormat form mendong and others traditional tools made from bamboo
Foreigners are welcome to see n try to make that kind of thing and will feel like they are in a heaven by consuming organic food

Greetings and Good Wishes to all People of the World,
Our website http://www.goldenduas.com is a social network site in accordance with the Declaration of Commonwealth Principles, 1971. It follows that our website ought to have been added in all the links of Government Websites, Commonwealth Countries in the interest of public peace, faith, security, health and wealth of mankind in the world. Besides the Commonwealth meetings like that held on 20th October 1991, other invitees like the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and other non-governmental Commonwealth Organization have to play their full part in these objectives, in a spirit of co-operation and mutual support.
In various parts of the Islamic countries, Christians are being killed and also Churches are burnt by the terrorists and this is against the Holy Quranic Verses 2:99, 5:82, 7:157 & 158 and also 22:40.(Quranic Verses in English are also available in www.quran.com).It is the bounden duty of the Commonwealth countries to take decisions in the interest of world peace and initiate co-operation with all other countries in the world.
According to the Declaration of Commonwealth Principles,1971 issued in Singapore, it is declared that Commonwealth of Nations is a voluntary Associations of Independent sovereign states, each responsible for its own policies, consulting and co-operating in the common interests of their peoples and in the promotion of international understanding and world peace. Besides it is also declared that international peace and order are essential to the security and prosperity of mankind and it is also supports the United Nations and seeks to strengthen the influence for peace in the world, and its efforts to remove the causes of tension between nations.
Globalization is not possible without society, political stability and peace.

The Islamic Governments and all other Islamic organizations in the world failed to notice that Christians are not arrogant and amongst them are priest and monks according to the Quranic verse 5: 82 .In the absence of reorganization of the above, there can be no peace between the 2 largest populations of the world. Once the Holy Quran recognized Christianity, then no Christian can criticize that Islamic community is false or that it is a satanic community. All the Muslims in the world are the followers of Our Prophets Jesus, Moses and Muhammad (peace be upon them). We have no other intention except to spread the messages to all the communities in the world posted in our website www.goldenduas.com to promote harmony, peace and security of mankind in the
