Part 1: She Knows He Knows

He touched her finger that was still pointed at his chest, "Still manage to scare the day out of me, I see." She smiled. Too sweetly. "Are you trying to get us killed? Not a good day to die, you say?".

How To Cross Road In Margonda

Somebody should publish this kind of booklet long before I even got enrolled in University of Indonesia. Duh! 1. If there's eventually a traffic light for passerby, please DO pay attention. It's not there for decoration purpose (only).

Dream High

Once upon a time, in one particular high school, lived one particular girl student. Let's call her Suzy. Not only that she got the looks, she also had the wealth and singing talent and lots of antis. All things other girls could only imagine.

Story From Far Java

On my last visit to Jogja (seriously this city has something captivating), I happened to visit Kraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat and Kraton Surakarta in one-day-trip to Solo.

Letting Go

The big question of letting go bugged my mind around these last couple of months. Some things.. are they worth to keep, or should I let them go. Think I'm pretty good of letting things go, but when inputs and comments started to coming in, I'd have to reconsider my decision.

blasted

Gue turut berdukacita atas meninggalnya temen kita Haryanto 2001, Minggu jam 6.20 pagi kemaren, just because some damn pencopet di kereta mau nyolong n ngedorong dia ampe jatuh dari kereta. Dunno if the story was true or not, but either both, I hate all pencopet di Kereta! Titik!

And then, I'd like to say 'go to hell' to all of the pickpockets around the Jakarta's railway. May your soul rest in bloody asylum now and forever, burn to rot, you slimy creatures, hate you so much. Begone!

Home
My hand hurt like hell =(
Abis nyuci2 kursi dan sofa di rumah gue, I practically exhausted and 'tepar' di kamar. Man, I worked for almost 3 hrs nonstop!

Anyway, kemaren I got another tip from the hausfrau of my latest student, and I was so happy, yet I spent the money already (again)
Giling, gimana mau ngejalanin niat tulus gue mau ngasih gaji pertama gue ke nyokap kalo tiap kali gue dapet duit langsung gue jajanin?
Well... jajanin perhaps a lil bit overestimate, i actually spent for the sake of my life =D

SpongeBob SquarePants
Episode ke-n

Background story:
SpongeBob dan Patrick melawan Manusia Sinar. The point is they got attacked and got burned to ashes, but not for their mouth and their eyes.

Patrick : Bau apa ini?
SpongeBob : Ini bau kekalahan, Patrick! =(
Patrick : *diam sebentar* Oooh, kukira ini bau kulitku.

I simply laugh. What a cute Patrick =) Thanks to Kevin for telling me the stories.

Me?

Kemaren di saat-saat gue nyaris botak nungguin ampe sejam anak didik gue kaga dateng2, akhirnya gue membongkar-bongkar koleksi majalah dan buku nyokapnya dia.

Nice.

Sang nyokap punya buku Bridget Jones Diary yg sekarang lagi dipelemin, and an 'Inspiring Book' or sumtin, similar with the Chicken Soup but in English.

Anyway, I read it and got carried away until 6.30pm and that bloody kid still hadn't showed up, aargh.. I think this time I should be fired since the lack of motivation from the child itself =(

Then, bla bla bla... before I got home, sang nyokap tiba2 ngasi salam tempel ke gue dengan ucapan, "Buat jajan."

Tziing...!

Gue bingung, apakah ini pertanda minta maaf karena anaknya bikin gue kelamaan nunggu, atao tanda perpisahan soalnya anaknya emang susah diajak belajar???

I dunno =(

Tapi yang penting, duitnya langsung amblas 10 menit kemudian karena gue belanja (oh, setelah sekian lama ngga merasakan aroma kasir =P)

Hihihihi, senang dapet duit pertama dari totally stranger =D

Duuh

Ah, ada jg ortu sesabar itu yang absolutely manjain anak =|
Kemaren saya lagi di tempatnya Hudy and kucuk2 dia ke kompie and buka internet, liat-liat katalog disney, dan.... ta-da!!! Dia ngeprint tuh page...

Just-like-that...

Printer yang berwarna, koneksi internet, all for only a sixth year old kid...
Trus pas dia nelfon, ngambek ngga mau les, eeh... nyokapnya bilang gini, "Ya udah, kamu main aja ama Kak Maya, nanti malem belajar ama mama."

Gimana gue ngga jiper dengan anceman dipecat??? Kerjaan gue cuma ngobrol n maen2 ama anaknya...

Yada-yada
Baru baca komentar orang-orang jenius dari berbagai belahan bumi tentang some test called 'Petal Rose' and it amazed me so much.

There are many of them felt insulted by the line 'the smarter you are, the longer time you need to solve it' or sumtin like that =]

Huahaha, ego, pride, whatever they called it... it startled me to know that me myself could solve it within a minute, but then I don't get furious or insulted or anything, so why all these people went mad???

Yaiks, apakah gue akan terlunta-lunta semester ini di bagian dunia antah-berantah, sacred part of computer science called coding?? CIS ngoding, SIA ngoding, PLBO ngoding, Anaperancis ngoding, DAA ngoding ngga sih???

Anyhoo... selamat menempuh hidup baru buat diri gue sendiri... Ganbatte!!!

Rambling

First, Selamat Hari Masuk Kuliah I ^^

And then, I just remembered, I got a Mandarin poet about Gong Xi Fa Chai from my cousin's school =]

Xin Nian Kuai Le, Ha Zi Men Ke Chang
Xin Nian Kuai Le, Xiao Niao Er Tiao Yao
Xin Nian Kuai Le, Bai He Hua Kai Kou
Gong Xi, Gong Xi, Gong Xi Fa Chai


Huahahaha, I'm good at memorizing but so lack in translating those =[

Trus trus, I reuni2 lagi sama kelompok PPL sayah, kekekekeke... jadi malu ^_____^

JERK
"Dia juga takut..."
"Oh ya? Kenapa?"
"Soalnya si X itu kan genit..."


Brengsek!

That was the first word popped into my head and I started to block out every words after. I guess I just don't want to listen about it any longer, I had enough. Traumatize? You may say so, whatever...

Anyway, graduation brought back old memories and I'm not too fond about it. Remind me of my own future WHICH by the way hadn't been settled yet. Oh, shut it! Change topic, please?

Gue baru aja ngeliat-liat ingredient dari permen yang baru gue makan, and di situ tertera... GELATIN SAPI!!! What the heck is that??? I almost choked out =[

Trus trus, aside from me being normal as usual, nothing excited really happened =[
Yah, just some old friend added me on friendster and suddenly out of nowhere, his girlfriend also added me (even though I have NO IDEA who is she ^^) and then I just thought, "Maybe she was kinda obsessed and overprotectived to his bf anyway, so beat it, My!" *giggles*

Oh so sweet, now that's what I called a Valentine spirit

Eh, lucu de, makin lama gue makin cinta aja leot web yang simple, yang tulisannya bukan Times New Roman, dan size-nya ngga segede pasir. My blog (if you opened it with ANYTHING BUT IE, thank you) would much fit that criteria. Huahaha, trus ternyata emang gue ngga suka frame ^^ padahal paling demen bikin frame jaman2 muda dulu, dan gue sekarang mulai ngga seneng dengan opening page, you know, a page containing the word ENTER? Aga2 cape aja, harus klik lagi, trus masuk ke halaman standar yang kebagi 2 atau 3 bagian juga ujung2nya =D Trus gue cinta site yang ngga berat, yang ngga banyak loading gambar, trus yang sebagian besar itu tulisan bukan gambar. Kan ada tuh website yang 2/3 halamannya adalah gambar segede-gede gaban, trus tulisannya nyempil di ujung2 mana gitu. Hehehe. Nyombong banget ya gue, padahal sih ngga, itu pendapat gue doang, abisnya pas liburan ngga ngapa2in selain ke lab n browsing2 ke berbagai website. Ampe eneg dengan tampilan2 web2 yang rada2 sama =[ Not that my own blog had any difference though, but... oh, whatever... human...

Belajar
Ngga ngerti de, gue pulang malem2 just to make sure that my lil cousin has done her homework and bam! There she was, sleeping safe and sound, and when I woke her up, she was practically screaming, yelling and crying refusing to correct her homework (which by the way all got wrong answers).

Aargh, I spent whole my energy buat ngebujuk-bujuk tuh anak biar mau ngebenerin PRnya. Gila, gue ampe gebrak meja dan seisi rumah mendadak sunyi senyap =] Fufufu... Mumpung ortunya lagi ngga ada dan om gue yang satunya lagi juga ikut2an mendukung tindakan saya tadi ^___^

Memang jiwa evaluator udah mendarah daging gini di gue =D
Lagian, anak2 jaman sekarang, manjanya ngga ketulungan -___-

Kalo dibandingin ama jaman gue masi kecil dulu, oh alangkah ironis... Emang sih gue juga ngga suka disuruh-suruh belajar (sapa juga yg tahan kalo disuruh belajar) tapi kan nilai gue juga baik2 saja. PR juga gue kerjain (walopun kadang2 bikinnya di sekolah), tapi ah, kayanya bonyok gue ngga pernah sampe kaya gue tadi nyuruh2 anaknya belajar T__T

Sebal, pokoknya ntar anak gue ngga ada cerita dibeliin PS ato game2 lainnya, kalo nilainya kacau ato males belajar, say bye bye to them. Sebel gue!

FULL

The Aviator
The Aviator itu bener2 beda ya? Absolutely classical and I could almost see the reason why it became the nominee of Golden Globe. Bener2 ngga ada grafik emosi yang naek turun kaya waktu nonton Sky Captain, ngga ada perasaan deg-degan kaya pas nonton 50 First Dates, the point is... I just felt like I was watching an old movie, a very old movie, a ridiculous one too, hahaha, bayangin aja ada adegan Badan Sensor Film Amerika yang menggelar sidang untuk filmnya si Houston yang sepanjang film menampilkan sosok payudara sapaa gitu namanya. Trus pas pembelaannya, the mighty Houston melakukan comparison of those lovely breasts about their roundness dan dia manggil Mathematician segala untuk ngitung kurva dsb ^____^

And personally, I thought it had a nice ending. If it wasn't because of the time that I worried so much -___- (it lasted 2 and a half hour, for God's sake!) I would have analyzed it more carefully and that was what happened when I got home. I think the ending was sweet =)

When I grew up, I'll make the greatest film, the largest airplane, and become the most wealthiest person in the world. Despite the illness he suffered, I think he already at the first half of his dream. Yeah, that's sweet.

Big thanks to Alex and Mamad yang udah mau nemenin gue nonton =D

Puisi
As ridiculous as it may sound, i'd like to quote my uncle recently-love-letter...huahahaha!!!

Jadi ceritanya gene..gue disuruh ngetik puisi apa gitu buat calon bininya di komputer, ya sudahlah jadinya mau ngga mau kan gue baca doong =P

The point is... gue ngakak mulu pas ngetik tuh puisi. HARI GINI NGASI PUISI??? *ketawa ampe guling-guling di lantai*

Anyway, di tengah-tengah kenorakan itu...akhirnya gue merasa ada satu kalimat yang cukup... well... not so bad lah...

Kuharap kamu bahagia melakukan apa yang terbaik yang dapat kamu lakukan.
Dengan mengambil resiko untuk mencoba,
Dengan mengambil resiko untuk memberi, dan
Dengan mengambil resiko untuk mencintai.


Yah, kinda sweet juga kalo ada orang yang ngomong kaya gitu ke gue =)
Jieeh, Oom!!! ^^

Kevin
Anyway, today was quite fun, I read about 3 editions of Doraemon, gosh that comic book still enraptured me until the very moment =D and then we went to some relative's house to celebrate the newborn baby.

There I'd just practically taken care of the children (what an irony) and then it hit me. Kevin was sooo like me when I was a child =D He kept nagging and whining and bragging about going home and he definitely didn't like to be in relative's house more than an hour =D Bring back the old memories, huh?? Gue banget!!!

And then, being the smart kid as always, Kevin stole my attention =P He isn't like another children who usually self-centered and thick-head and not to mention sotoy, Kevin can be considered as a wise kid in his age. 8 Yrs old. You can easily talk to him and discuss something and then debate him on some subject that... well, honestly... not so important =D But he took everything that had been taught to him since he's a smart boy, no kidding.

The most bothering thing about him -considering that we're so much alike- is that he had this kinda illness -headache for exact- the same way as I had until now. I really worry, I often thought that I had a serious illness since this headache had been too long being in my health history (from the age of 5 until now, though it's not that often any longer, thank God!) And the truth is, I have no guts checking it to any doctors. It freaked me out.

What if I got some severe disease and it's already too late?
What if I got a brain-cancer?
What if I'm loosing my consciousness slowly?


That's frightening, even for my standard of fear =(
I have that darn headache, and so are my brother, and now Kevin. What the...

I could even recall that illness when it came.

First you saw those stars twinkle in your vision and everything went blur. But at that moment, you felt no pain inside your head.

And then, as those stars started to disappear, you would gradually start to feel the pain, the bloody pain inside of your head, it was so painful you almost hope you could trade your head with ANY head, just chop it off and buy a new one. In this phase, you usually screaming and hissing, anything to make the pain gone.

Next, when it did nothing to reduce the pain, you would start to throw up and then simply lying on the bed, exhausted and felt so damn tired, with that bloody pain-residue still being inside of your head, or even worse, it had transformed into a migraine, Voila!

Usually all those phases last for exactly 12hr up to 24hr. What is the best medical way to cure it? Go to sleep! Don't think, don't look at anything, don't use any pillow, and pray. Pray to your God! Usually works, though.
I hate doctors, I hate medicine!
