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.

Nice and tad

Welcome to Las Vegas.

That line automatically popped up into my head as soon as I watched the movie "Las Vegas". Played by Josh Duhamel (salah satu dari 10 hottest guys yang dulu pernah gue tulis di sini, somewhere, sometime), James Caan, James Lesure, Molly Sims dan kroco-kroconya.

Ceritanya sih lucu, tentang gimana cara security-security casino sono nyari cheater2 dan bum2 yang pengen ngacauin tu kasino. Yang gue suka dari series ini, gambar2nya cerah, warna-warnanya bagus, hehehehe.. And pretty much more refreshing if you compared it to
Heroes or Supernatural. And also, be prepared to see lots and lotsa pretty faces here, I mean, female ones (much regret to that one, sigh, cewe mulu dimana2, cowonya mane?? =P)

And while watching the movie, I was sidetracked by my counter in this blog, 14.000, hello? Nice, walaupun mungkin 90%-nya itu berasal dari komputer gue, wekekekeke.. Trus gara-gara tu counter, gue jadi penasaran dan ngubek-ngubek lagi analisis yang bisa gue dapet...

The funny thing is, link2 yang ngerefer ke blog gue tuh biasanya dari search Google dengan keywords... let's see...
- Gambar dekorasi Natal
- Greys anatomy
- Fasilkom 2002 mabim
- Watershed indigo girl
- Harlem beat online reading
- 11 January dari Gigi
- Maybe songs Brainstorm
- trend majalah
- Lovely Luna film Indonesia
- majalah Jepang
- Indri Gautama
- cara buat scrapbook ideas
- yes or no question

Nah, keywords yang rada-rada bikin gue ketawa tuh...
- hated and underestimated
- lowongan jadi gay film
- enslave my husband

Seriously, I totally cracked up by those keywords, especially the last one =D Dan untuk memuaskan hasrat ingin tau gue, gue cari dong, masa iya sih Google messed up my blog with my personality (yang mana sangat lucu dan menggemaskan ini) Eh ternyata ada loh tu
kalimat muncul di suatu tempat di blog entitled Oktober 2004. Man, it was like.. two years ago!

Dan buntut2nya, gue membaca ulang blogku sayang =)

And what a personality can be deduced by reading a person's blog. Damn true. Gue dapet kesan yang nulis blog adalah cewe pengidap hysteria illness and over-reactive and not to mention bawel and kecentilan.

Tsk tsk...

*Tersenyum bijak*

Ah, itu masa lalu...

.....

Waitaminutte!!! *hysterical laugh*

I was just watching another series (yeah, I know, too many movies, too little time) called Veronica Mars and played by Kristen Bell (yang maen jadi Elle si halilintar di Heroes, sigh, what a small world) dan anak-anak muda Amerika lainnya.

There's this guy, a character, a person named Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring), a rich kid, brat, sarcastic n cynical, trouble maker, and happened to have this spoiled-bad-act yang oh-so-adorable, made me amazed and spontaneously spotted him as one of the must-check-out-character in the movie.

And ain't I a big brainiac, mama?

They kissed!!! Finally, THANK GOD!!! The mighty Veronica Mars herself AND Logan Echolls *angelic choir sings in background*



Walaupun terjadinya baru di episode 18, puh-lease! But I gotta admit I didn't see that coming. I mean, iyalah gue pernah mikir, "Ni berdua lucu de kalo jadian, hehehe" but I'm not actually expecting it... hoping it maybe, but not expecting it... aaargh, does any of my babbling make any sense to you?

Lucunya, ni series (buat yang belum tahu) rada-rada mirip Conan gitulah, mecahin kasus-kasus kecil di dunia SMU, walaupun ada juga big case yang nge-link seluruh season, but that's not important =D I just wanna see Logan Echolls, wakakakaka...

Anyway, what was I saying? *replay kissing scene* Damn it, they're sweet >_< Kyaaaaa....

Okeh, jadi si Veronica Mars ini s'pose to be the one-school-hates-her kinda character. Cynical dan terfitnah entahlah gara-gara apa, intinya dikit banget yang jadi temennya dia. Gebleknya, ada aja gtuh anak2 yang mau minta tolong dia buat mecahin kasus daaaan ada aja gtuh anak2 (mostly boys, duh!) yang mau bantuin dia mecahin kasus.

Let's see... untuk orang yang 'terbuang', Ms, Mars ini punya terlalu banyak koneksi...
- Duncan, the rich boy, ex-boyfriend, A-student, bla-bla-bla... Veronica Mars and the rest of the girls like to think that he is hot but I'm not, yuck... apanya yang lucu dari ni mahluk?
- Wallace, the black boy, basket ball kid, pendek dan rambut rada Jamaican, BFF of Veronica Mars, mahluk malang paling sering dijajah untuk dimintain tolong
- Eli a.k.a 'Weevil', another black guy, but this one got style. The real bad-boy in the movie... big motorcycle, leather jacket, tatoos, bald, but turned out to be more like the good bad-boy, helps Veronica A LOT walaupun rada2 nyolot, disinyalir got a crush on her but I don't approve!
- Logan, another rich kid, BFF dari Duncan (personally gue jijay make kata BFF), bad-boy juga tapi lebih ke arah attention-seeker-kind-of-bad-boy. Hard to explain. He's complicated. My word though.
- seorang Deputi di kantor Sheriff yang gue ngga suka tampangnya. Ok lah tapi nyengir mulu kaya orang bego.. disinyalir bakal jadi the next pasangan of Veronica Mars, but God I wish he won't.

Sigh, this is another light sort of movie material... try it when you had time, or give me a call... They're just sweet.. ooow Logan and Veronica, what would I do without the both of you? T_T

I love the soundtrack... inspiring... nyah nyah nyah....

We Used To Be Friends - Dandy Warhols

A long time ago, we used to be friends
But I haven't thought of you lately at all
If ever again, a greeting I send to you,
Short and sweet to the soul I intend.

Sigh... napa mereka menciptakan karakter selucu Logan? Huhuhu, gue jadi menghemat nih nontonnya, takut ending season...

Daily afternoon

I'm not sure if I've become soft or something, but when I got three out of five episodes of Ghost Whisperer season one watching and crying, then I presume I have.

That series is so sweet. I mean the world of the dead, hello, everyone\\'s trying to explore it in any kind of perspectives, say X-Files, Supernatural, Buffy, you name it, but this one is different. Well, correct me if I'm wrong and if there IS another series that
came up with the same idea, but I still think Ghost Whisperer is a good series... and sweet.

I enjoyed watching Jennifer Love Hewitt playing this sweet lil girl who dressed up very nicely. She always comes up with different costumes and each of them is always made from silky linen, flowing out dress, lace, and mini accessories, hmm.. more like ethnic pieces.

Ni ceritanya suka bikin gue melo dan mikir ulang about what would I left in this world when I'm gone some day? Or will I miss somebody when I leave one day? Or will I felt left behind when somebody leave me? I mean, yeah iyalah May, tapi gue suka aja ama penuturan dan kalimat-kalimat sederhana dari ni serial.

I think Jennifer is awesome, pertama kali liat dulu sih ngga demen, karena dia 'merusak' pemandangan serial TV favorit gue -yang bahkan gue dah lupa namanya, Party of Five or sumtin-, tapi lama-lama ni orang koq jadi keren gini. Not in the look but more like the career. Yeah, berhubung dia sendiri yang jadi produsernya Ghost Whisperer kayanya sih ngga salah kalo gue jadi kagum ama ni orang.

Tonton de kalo sempet.

As in another news, gue baru aja menamatkan buku bacaan baru yang judulnya Dreamers (http://www.amazon.com/Dreamers-Legacies-Ancient-River-1/dp/1556616074). Yang ngarang Angela Elwell Hunt. Ceritanya ini tentang Yusuf di tanah Mesir, dimulai dari cerita dia dibuang oleh saudara-saudaranya, dan ended up jadi orang berkuasa di Mesir.

In my Bible, the story is brief. I mean... REALLY brief. Cuman 1-2 pasal doang kayanya. I don't even know who's the Firaun's name. Tapi di buku ini, dia cerita backgroundnya detil, disajikan dengan bahasa novel and tokoh-tokoh dan mitos yang keren mulai dari Potifar, Amenhotep, Tuthmosis, Tuya, Sagira, Bastet Goddess, Horus eyes, and of course the most handsome man ever lived, Yusuf. Or Joseph. Or... is there any other name for this character?

Personally I'm not fond of religious story thing 'xcept when it's about legend or got any moral message in it. Dan kebetulan cerita Yusuf ini adalah one of my favourite reading time back when I was a child. He deserve to be called dreamer berhubung dia dapet mimpi dan bisa menerjemahkan mimpi.

And kadang emang sih ceritanya rada telenovela. dengan adanya tokoh-tokoh yang pengen menyabotase Firaun etc, tapi ternyata gue tidak dikecewakan oleh endingnya yang sweet. Hehehehe... Baca de, gue rekomendasikan, this is kind of reading material yang tidak mengacu ke particular religion or culture, dan kayanya sih lebih ke girl stuff. Wekekekeke.. berhubung yaaa... Yusuf digambarin ganteng. Mutlak. Tua muda laki-laki wanita semua bilang dia ganteng, perawakan dewa, suara tajam dan parasnya elok. Wakaka.. Gue pengen ni buku dijadiin film, that gotta be cool. A sweet movie.

Is it just me or I did use the word 'sweet' a bit too much? xP

Blurp... blurp...

Pagi-pagi ujan, angin dingin berhembus bikin seger.. eh malah jadi males mandi =P Ah, pagi yang menyenangkan, nyampe kantor jam 8, ajaib banget ya!

Seneng de, kemaren baru baca artikel mana gtu, dia bilang kalo orang stres bisa diliat dari meja kantornya, wekekeke... alhasil gue hari ini (niatnya) berbenah meja lah. Berhubung benda2 di meja gue adalah benda2 ungsian dari meja sebelah (memang dasar!), jadinya gue membuang
tu barang2 dengan sukacita dan hati gembira =)

Anyhoo.. thanks to my dearest laptop, I happened to watch Supernatural season 3 tanpa kekurangan suatu apapun. Amien (?).

There's quite some lesson that can be taken from that movie, you know. Misalnya:
1. Never separate from your group if you're travelling or searching through the-so-called-graveyard. You'll ended up dead, or the rest of your group will. Jadi kesimpulannya kalo mau misah, seenggak2nya misah jadi 2 bagian yang sama, so if anything happens, sisanya masih banyak *kesimpulan aneh*

2. Jangan naro barang2 tajam dengan ujung yang tajemnya ngadep ke atas, misal ujung pisau ngadep ke atas, ujung gunting ngadep ke atas, ujung garpu ngadep ke atas, atau ujung jarum ngadep ke atas. Big no-no!

3. Do not, I repeat, do not tell wicked stories to comatose people. By wicked stories I meant like Lil Red Riding Hood, you know, the part where the wolf eaten the grandmother? It's just cruel and gruesome. Euh! It might come true in some occasion. Gue jadi ngga abis pikir betapa sadis2nya fairy tales yang biasa didongengin ke anak-anak jaman dulu. Ada Serigala dan 3 Babi, ada Hansel & Gretel, ada Snow White... kacau...

4. Sometimes you have to let go. Enuf said.

5. Entah gmana di ni pelem, setan tu suka ngambil wujud cewe-cewe cantik. Kesimpulan?

By the way busway, speaking of bus (?).. I was greatly annoyed by some pathetic pengamen this morning, aaargh... tak hanya dia menyanyikan lagu standar masa kini ("Tuhan kirimkan akuu.. kekasih yang baik hatii..", dll), tapi dia juga menyanyikannya dengan lantang dan FALS. Ngedengerinnya juga jadi rada2...

Kyaah, handphone gue mati lagi! Again! Sekarang nasibnya dia dah kaya hape seorang mahluk yang kudu dicolok ke charger dulu baru mau nyala. Mending nyalanya stabil, ni
dah dicolok juga suka mati, huhuhu... Alhasil gue ngga bakal bisa make dia selama di jalan, dan alhasil pula gue kudu bawa charger ke mana2. Oh no... kayanya butuh hape baru T__T Duuh, tapi ngga rela, tu hape dah unik banget, lucu banget, dan setia banget menemani hari2 gue.. Wawawa... ntar ngga ada lagi hape yang bisa dikasi karet kaya punya gue >__< Huhuhuhu...

Anyway, kemaren gue dapet gosip yang bikin nafsu makan gue ilang... masa katanya Wentworth Miller tuh gay??? Haaaaaaah???

Shoot, people! Good guys ARE either taken or gay (.___.) Darn it!

I say maybe

Yesterday I cracked open. It's like this whole bunch of my self defense, my belief, and my safety nets was being torn open, widely to the unknown world called reality. Well yes, finally reality
let herself in to my, unguarded and indiscreet, life. Sometimes I just hate reality. Especially when reality tells me that I need to go to the medical center. Reality sucks!

And so does hospital. Really loathe them. I truly have no intention to step my feet on that building if it wasn't for an emergency cases. Like having a minor heart attack.

Which I didn't have, of course. Thank God! I just happen to suffer an iterative dry cough that apparently time will heal, and for that conclusion, I got to spent nearly 300 grand for a specialist doctor.

Wherein I didn't really mind, since he's a very nice and gentlemen doctor, quite as old as my grandfather (the one who suggested me to take a thorax rontgen) and has a kind personality to explain to me everything I want and need to know 'bout my illness, that and the fact that my company actually reimbursing my medical expenses =P

Well, my medical check went on like a lecture session actually. I asked a lot, bicker a few, and he replied quite plenty too, like the fact that I persisted upon a thorax examination. That's funny, I
was like this demon that persevered that I was heavily under the weather while he, on the other side, strongly suggested that it's not such a major concern. He even finally gave me a prescription of a cough suppressant capsule with additional note, "Take this ONLY when you really need it." Then it's being repeated by the pharmacy by writing it on the package - BILA PERLU - And not to mention he also he gave me the name card, so that my grandfather could distinguish who is this “dreadful doctor” who stood firm against my will to have a thorax rontgen =D

Geez!

Well, it's not like what you think. We're basically not in dispute; we're more like friend-talking. He smiled a lot and he even told me the legend of 'The Wisdom Teeth'. Hehehehehehe... It appeared that mine hasn't grown completely yet, and thus I still didn't earn to be called 'wise'. Which is so not true. I'm a hell of a wise girl =P

Ah, that's it. Going to the doctor turned out to be NOT that gloomy, or is it maybe because I visited the pricey one? Hahahahaha... *stres*

I do still think I got a lot more of health problems in me, say heart disease carried on from my father, cholesterol in my body, my frequent headache or maybe diabetes for having so much bloody sugar in my life. But let me rest my case. I'd love to have a fine and fun life, while for the time being claimed hale and hearty by this brand doctor.

Speaking of which, I just recently watched the movie EVAN ALMIGHTY –I know, I'm way far behind, so sue me– and I found it very amusing. That's one gigantic superb of a good story. The
question being asked in the movie hit me straight to the point.

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does He give them the opportunity to be patient?
If they pray for courage, does God give them courage, or does He give them opportunity to be courageus?
If someone prayed for their family to be closer, you think God zaps them with warm and fuzzy feelings? Or does He give them opportunities to love each other?

Okay, let's just say I was in a pretty bad shape after the scene, but in real world I never really thought for it that way. I mean, yes I know courage and love and patience does not abruptly
emerge from out of nowhere, but many times I prayed for junk stuff like ‘Give us Your mercy, health and happiness to go through the next day' or something like that without really comprehended that God IS doing His own way to provide things I needed the most. I pray for a daily routine, and you know when something is done habitually it will get lesser meaning *in my very humble opinion though*. Praying will be much more like a tradition, eating will be less pleasing, and working will be dull.

Maybe it's just me, but I am sucks at living my life. I may not be like others out there who enjoy their daily routine that happily or savour every meaning of every breath of their life, or even have a good life to live. My life is as tedious as I could tell, and by that I refer to my working life. Maybe my health problem is more psyche problem. Maybe I've had enough sitting on that very same project from the first I got in till this very moment. Maybe I'm just sick of doing this never-ending job while others could go in and out my team every time they feel like it. Maybe I'm just jealous. Yes, maybe I'm just jealous.

Or maybe God is giving me the opportunity to toughen my forbearance? An opportunity to prove to myself that I'm as tough as I thought I was? As tough as someone thought I was?

But that is just maybe.

Liar Game

Dunno why, but after watching couples of JDorama series, Hana Youri Dango 2 seemed a lot better than the first one.

It brought back old memories from Meteor Garden, hehehe, only wrapped in a whole lot different package than the Taiwan series.

Apalagi abis nonton Liar Game n Hanakimi, sosok-sosok F4-nya jadi berasa beneran lucu. I guess the character they played is matter anyway.

Speaking of Liar Game, I strongly suggest you to watch it together with friends. I did it, and it was a hell lotsa fun. The puzzle, the strategy, the technique they're using to win the game, that just about excellent.

To put it in one word, Liar Game is combined movie between Conan, Deathnote and Kindaichi. Well, maybe I'm a bit exaggerated, but hell it's true. Though I'm only fond of the second round sebenernya. Bayangin aja gue nonton ampe bawa-bawa kalkulator segala...

So, what is a Liar Game talking about?

Basically it's a movie where people being seduced into a tricky game concerning the amount of 100 million yen (minimum) . Either you lost 100 million or you win 100 million. The game became more interesting as people who joined the round was gettin even crowd.

Bayangin aja dari ronde 1 yang cuman bisa menangin 100jt, ke ronde 2 yang grand prizenya 2.1 milyar. Fiuh! Lotsa cash!

Nah, yang membuat gue suka ni film, it reminded me of statistic and probabilistic (?) problem I learned back at college. And you say, what so cool about it, secara yang ngajar dan bahan kuliahnya dulu minta dihajar yah... tapi seriously, this one is fun to watch (or atleast the second round is) .


-------------s. p. o. i. l. e. r-------------


Nah, yang ronde dua ini ceritanya ada 22 peserta pemenang ronde pertama. Untuk menang ke babak selanjutnya, aturan maennya adalah sbb (jieh)..

There will be one contestant who will be asked to ask a yes-no-question. People then will choose either a 'yes' or a 'no' after several amount of hours. 6 jam bo, bikin bimbang ngga sih ngejawabnya.

Nah, yang lolos tu yang minority vote. Jadi kalo ada 9 yang milih 'no' dan 13 yang milih 'yes', maka yang grup 9 orang on to the next question.

Gtu seterusnya ampe tersisa 1 ato 2 pemenang. Berhubung ada 22 orang, so the grand prizenya tu 2.2 milyar, tapi karena ada aturan menang ato kalah kudu ngebalikin modal 100jt yang awal, jadi kemungkinan sih total prizenya 2.1 milyar.

Did you see the implication? Intinya, the looser will have to pay 100 million yen (which is like ... a LOT!) no matter what.

Gtu deh, yang tokoh utama tu ada 2 orang, cewe ama cowo, trus pertanyaan rehearsalnya lucu deh.

Q: Are you a woman?

Situasinya, ada 9 cewe dan 13 cowo yang maen. What will you answer? Hehehehehehe.. tricky yah...

Dear Me

Sometimes I just kept forgetting that I have several good-looking juniors
*laughing maniacally*

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And yes *by the way* recently I was so captured with this guy, an actor playing the character "Nakatsu Shuichi" in Hanazakari No Kimitachi (hanakami for short) and whose real name is Ikuta Toma.

While seaching for more info bout this cutie, gue baru nemu fakta kalo dia ternyata maen di Hanayori Dango 2, ya oloooh... sialnya gue cuman punya tu season mulai dari episode 3, tragis banget nasib gue Neeek! *tersedu-sedan... maybe BMW*

Ikuta Toma

*By the way* Gue tentunya not attracted only by his look dong (._.) Please, I'm not that shallow! But maybe by his hair...

Nakatsu Shuichi

Anyway, the thing that made me interested with this guy adalah aktingnya yang brilian. He's the only actor there (in the series) yang bikin tu movie bearable to watch. Huhuhu.. tentunya selaen tokoh Nanba Minami (yang juga punya aura2 keren), si Nakatsu Shuichi ini easily spotted. Seriously. He can crack your smile simply by picking his nose, which s'pose to be a gross thing to do, but he did it so freakingly funny. I can't stop looking for more scene with him in it.

But now the series had ended. *sobs*

Hiks... i craved for more brilliant character played by him. Help, producers!

Eh iya, lupa cerita, menurut gue yah, ni film adalah satu-satunya film yang gue tonton dimana si supposedly-main-male-character held no chemistry whatsoever with the heroine.

Gila yah, si Nakatsu ini kan notabene adalah sang tokoh pembantu, sekedar sidekick pencerah suasana, tapi mainly the movie nyorot kelakuan dia mulu, ngga senang ngga sedih ngga marah ngga ketawa.. it's all about Nakatsu Shuichi. I almost felt annoyed when his love proposal was rejected by the heroine. (Padahal nenek-nenek juga tau ni cerita endingnya kaya gmana, but still, I crossed my finger, napa ngga Nakatsu aja seh yang jadian ma tu cewe????)

*grumble grumble*

Alergi

Bulan puasa ini adalah pertama kalinya gue kena yang namanya ALERGI! Please, selama 23 tahun hidup gue, ngga pernah sekalipun badan gue kena ALERGI, not a sneeze, not a red spot, not an itch, NOTHING! *histeris*

Tapi kemaren Jumat dong, gue dengan polosnya memandangi leher gue di WC kantor, koq merah gini? Garuk-garuk, kucrit, merahnya menjalar ke bahu, lengan, kaki, dan beberapa tempat-tempat lucu lainnya.

Dan dari itu incident, satu-satunya hal yang gue baru notice dari diri gue adalah... my 'alam bawah sadar' is way too powerful, lads and gents! Ngga pake gue sadarin, tu tangan dah gerak sendiri garuk2! Ohmigod, stres gue seharian kemaren euy.

Untunglah, tak dinyana, dunia kedokteran sudah maju rupanya. Ada penemuan ajaib namely INSIDAL sebagai obat alergi terkemuka. Gue sebut terkemuka karena ukurannya itu cute bangeeeet, huahahahahahaha... ngga ada sebesar telor cicak, sodara-sodara setanah aer!!

Jadi buat gue yang susah nelen obat ini, INSIDAL adalah berkah di balik batu. Udang di balik kemalangan. Huhuhuhu... Dan sebagai tambahan ya, warnanya is so bright, so cheerful, so extraordinaire league of gentlemen (???)

I love this drug!

Mmmh, ada satu quote kocak dari show yang baru-baru ini gue tonton, hehehehe...

"I love women so much I can not get marriage. Because when you're married, you'll only love woman."

~Kocak aja...

TV Series

Have you ever found yourself in a dream so warm you never want to wake up? I did, and in my dream, I was in a place decorated with a big Christmas tree with all the lights and candies and fireplace and socks full of presents. And the music played was so soft, the famous 'Christmas Song' with 'chestnuts roasting on an open fire...' and so on.

Well, yesterday I did watch the series, "Grey's Anatomy" and of the episodes showed the room exactly like the one in my dream. And yes, it's a heartwarming room. Damn, I always want to spend my Christmas somewhere snowy and united statey (is that even a word?).

Sigh, right now I'm in a state of serious envy with my cousins there.

Mmmh, speaking of which yah, recently I watched never-too-many TV series thanks to my colleague in office =) Started from Heroes, Prison Break, Supernatural, My Name is Earl, Grey's Anatomy, Jericho, Scrubs, Coffee Prince, A Love to Kill, Hana Yori Dango, dll.

Ehm, among so many movies... hehehe, I voted for Prison Break, Heroes and Grey's Anatomy. Those rockz indeed!

Apalagi episode2 barunya mulai berbarengan ginih, hiks hiks... senang...

Annoyed

Is it true that women was given the gift called intuition?

Well, if it’s true, then sometimes I hate this gift.

I hate to be acquainted with what others might think about me, whether they’re irritated
or dissapointed at me.

It might be better if I lack of that knowledge nonetheless. World will be brighter, sky will be bluer, food will taste better, and obviously I don’t have to suffer this annoying feeling.

Btw, recently I recalled some of my old conversations among friends.One of them quote the infamous quote, "Don't get yourself flying too high, because when you fell, it'll hurts"

But today, I just read the opposite of that quote, "Falling from three stairs and fifty stairs will be hurt anyway. So when I do fall, it better be from a higher place."

Pretty nice. Never think about it before.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Being working more than 6 months in a big company, a super-fast-trade-off should surprise me no more than a cute lil breaking news in the TV at noon. But still, it did surprise me more. I felt like I'm loosing more and more friends. After shocking news today morning, I rethink my motivation and my future plan in this company. Not that I planned to move, mind you, but I really have to consider my step ahead from now on.

Like one of my friend said, "How long will you still work in this company?" Well, why move when you had everything you need already? There's one in every men motivation to jump off one industry to the other, and to find a better offer is one of those reasons. So that's my only eligible reason for now. Cliché?

(ps: This is wrote several days ago, in a very gloomy day, the day one of my good colleague claimed that he's goin to move out)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I really-really enjoy rereading my old writings in my laptop. A bit of reflecting, actually...

Reminiscence

Ever felt something similar to a burden on your weight, a feeling that you shouldn't brag to anyone or couldn't complain to anyone, or even telling them how you feel, simply because you're not really in the high moment at the time?

Well, I s'pose to acknowledge my lack of attention on those things.. But today it felt so damn real. I could not send any of my messages without the pang of guilty. And that's because I do not want to bother them with my problem, my sorrow mood, unhappy days, or anything else. How weird is that?

Me, the master of ignorance, actually had a second thought on bothering people with my own problem. Great! And next morning I'll see sun rises from the west.


---------------
Had I posted this several days ago, somebody will be pissed off.. And that refers to me.. So, lesson learnt, never post anything depressing while your emotion in a labil condition =P

Damn airplane

Been through a hell kind of airplane journey. Hueks, goncangannya euy di atas sana... ogah naek pesawat lagi (.__.) Tidaaaks...!

Tiap kali dia turun naek ala Dufan, I'll soon awake and start to panic. Bener2 kayanya lebih worth it ke Dufan deh.

Yang paling geblek di antara semua kejadian yang gue alamin..
Pesawat: *Gubrak... jedug... ziiing.. ziiing.. brak bruk... wiiiii... hyuuu...* (menggambarkan betapa kacaunya keadaan up there)
Gue: *silence mode on, kilasan masa kecil mulai berkelebat di memori*
Pesawat: *Gusrak.. gedebug.. yiiiiing*
Flight Attendant: "Ladies and gentlemen... your life jacket was seated under your seat.."
Gue: *mulai menyumpah-nyumpah dengan histeris*
Flight Attendant: "Anyone who carry those life jacket without permission out of the plane will be charged and fined .. bla bla bla..."
Gue: *tziiiiiing*

Aslilah gue ngga merasa lucu sama sekali waktu itu. Huhuhuhuhu. That was indeed once in a lifetime experience. Stupid bad joke! Hate it! Grrr.... Mana itu masi di atas laut, kebayang dong perasaan gue yang ngga bisa berenang ini T___T Ngga lagi-lagi deh... Huhuhuhu.. First time I actually felt the need to cry.

Between music, feet and prison

So would you let me be myself..
Reach all my dreams and hopes..
I know you know me better..
I know you love me do...


Hmm, Pertama kali denger D'Cinnamons pas jalan di Bandung with my dearest old time friend who's about to gettin married this July *damn you for being so lucky Neneeek!!* Easy listening, Alanis Morisette/The Corrs voice-look-alike, dan on top of that, it's unplugged music, music I seriously love.

Sigh.

Terutama yang lirik di atas.. I dunno, it just suit my mood these days, hehehe.. Mana abis kebetean mendadak karena satu tim kantor batal outing ke Bandung karena deadline terkutuk, tapi akhirnya belajar untuk nrimo tepo seliro (??) since what can I do anyway? Untung the week before I already travel around that city seharian.

Wisata kuliner dadakan di Rumah Nenek, Yoghurt Cisangkuy (thanks to a friend, I learned not to order any Chocolate Yoghurt ._.), Nyonya Rumah, daaaan nikahannya senior kantor gue.

Talk about numerous things with this Nenek who's about to gettin married in the... STOP IT! (._.) Kangen juga ngobrol ama tu mahluk. Ni anak baru gue kenal waktu duduk di bangku SMA kelas 3 *halah bahasa gue* dan walopun more than often gue pengen nyayat2 tu orang karena kelakuannya yang suka rese, tapi ngga bisa dipungkiri *halaaah* kalo she's quite a best friend.

Mengutip kata-katanya dia, "Nek, lo nyadar ngga sih kita dah ngga ketemu 5 taun? And yet it felt like yesterday."

It did feel like yesterday.

You know, ada beberapa jenis temen in my humble opinion yah. Satu: Yang kudu di-update. Meaning: Tiap ketemu pasti basa-basi karena dah ngga kepikiran lagi mau ngomongin topik apaan. Pertanyaan standar: Kerja di mana? Kuliah di mana? Udah belajar buat ujian belum? Punya catatan anu ngga? Kantornya di mana? dan serentetan pertanyaan basi yang ujung2nya pas taun2 telah berlalu, "Anaknya dah berapa?" Anjrit! Pokoknya yang basi-basi gtu deh.

Mana recently I found myself lack with this attitude pula, you know, catching up stories from few friends?

Nah, tipe kedua adalah: Updates-no-need kind of friend. This is my favourite term and sort of friend. And yes, she's one of those rare beings. Iyalah kita catching up stories, but it's more like gossiping sih sebenernya. So it's much more fun, less awkwards, and so ngangenin momen. Hehehe.

Yang nakutin dan rada-rada serem sih, this girl and I had a lot of common. Hmmm, nyokap kita berdua ulang taunnya sama, ultah kita berdua cuman beda seminggu, trus kemaren pas gue ke kost dia, anjrit she got the same bag with the one I carried. Sama persis, gila! Beda warna doang, gue putih dia silver. Dan lebih bikin nganga lagi, ni anak juga punya Hape Nokia 8910 juga!!! Masih aktif, casing dah kaya apaan tau saking baret2 di-mana2, and she once told me, "Dulu hape gue pake karet juga nek kaya punya elu"

Plis doooong, jaman sekarang udah jarang banget tuh hape Tao Ming Tse terlihat beredar di kalangan anak muda kan??? Gue ampe nahan napas pas tau hapenya dia. Iya sih hapenya ngga cuman 1 (-__-) But nevermind...

Loh koq jadi ngomongin si nenek satu itu??

*lupa*

Betewe last couple of days I've been rethinking about my priorities. Heck, almost everyone I met insist that I should CHANGE my sweet cute cellphone (._.) Tiap kali jatoh, di-alhamdulilah-in, tiap kali ada yang nelfon dan gue reject gara2 ngga bisa nerima telfon, gue dimarah2in, trus kalo dah gajian pasti deeeh...

"Gaji kita sama koq lo kaga pernah ganti henpon seeeh????"

Dude, can't you see the uniqueness of my handphone? Mana ada telfon lain yang difilm-in sesering Nokia 8910. Even dari namanya aja dah keren, huhuhuhu... Ini hape mahal bo di masa jayanya (>_<) Pay some respect! =P Now, where was I? Oh iya, priorities! Setelah gue pikir2, gue bukan pecinta gadget, kalo ngga butuh2 amat, gue ngga bakal beli gadget, say earphone, mp3 player, apalagi henpon? Lo kate henpon murah? grr... gue dulu pengen banget Sirocco, tapi koq ya ngga sanggup yah.. Akhirnya karena males beli *yoi, males bukan ngga sanggup =P*, akhirnya I spent money on things that look more exciting.. misalnya pemeliharaan kaki. Wakakakakaka! Kemaren niatin beli produk kaki2an dari mulai scrub, talc, lotion, perfume, dll semata-mata karena kemasannya cute gtu, ada gambar telapak kakinya!!! *DOENK*

Seriously, that product do look cute in my eyes =P

Nah, apakah gue memakainya dengan rajin dan telaten? Itu masalah lain, hohohoho...

Trus.... I just follow up my lack of knowledge in TV Series. Basi banget yah? =D Baru nonton Prison Break Season 1 itu juga belom tamat (awas kalo mo spoiler!!), trus Heroes, dan pengen nonton Grey's Anatomy. Huhuhuhu. Si nenek yang di Bandung itu punya Grey's Anatomy tapi karena laptop gue yang nyebelin banget mood2an kalo nyetel pelem bajakan, alhasil gue batal minjem. Hiks, buntut2nya cuman minjem Topeng Kaca (yang ternyata ngga bisa dipasang juga, doooh!!!)

Nasib nasib...

Eiya, Wentworth Miller itu cakep gila yah. A true definition for a cute boy. Not a macho, cowboy, rough and seenak udelnya ndiri, tapi ni bocah bener2 keturunan mahluk bermata tajam. Wakakakakaka. Cinta mati ama mata ama senyumnya. Pertama nonton sih biasa aja, tapi koq setelah ditelusuri lebih lanjut, hey this guy is sweet. Cute. And seems delicious. Wekekekeke...

Quick trivia:
- Born in England, raised in Brooklyn, New York, and a graduate of Princeton University.
Apalagi yang kuraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang???? Gila, i always fall for a genius type of men gini yah.

- He is of African, Jamaican, English, German Jewish and Cherokee, descent on his father's side, and of Russian, French, Dutch, Syrian and Lebanese descent on his mother's side
Njrit, so many nationality! Wonder what he's going to write in his CV...

- "My father is black and my mother is white. Therefore, I could answer to either, which kind of makes me a racial Lone Ranger, caught between two communities." says Miller.
Gasp! He's mixed! Doubled that with my eagerness with this kind of people!!!Sejak nonton Heroes, dan sejak gue tau Micah itu bokap nyokapnya beda warna kulit, I'm infatuated. Kyaa, gue juga pas tau Jordin Sparks (American Idol winner this season) lahir dari ortu beda ras langsung cinta ama that girl =P For some reason... hehehe...

Somewhere only I know

My ear felt hurt. Couldn't believe of what they said. Again it seems like a blur. Constantly changing, yet no one ever hear what I say. Not even bother to try to listen to me anyway. What is wrong with you, guys?

Hated to be underestimated. Hated to be ignored. Hated even more to be judged and be misjudged.

Need to do some serious crying here. Why did my pitch always take a higher note than I want it to be? Made me looked weak. Hate it a lot. Extremely hate it.

But then again, why do I even bother to put my feeling before everything I do? It's not supposed to be like that. I'm suppose to do things right, not to feel them right. Down with it! Mad beyond reason, yes, that's me nowadays. Mad beyond reason.

News is coming down my way. Bad news, good news, things I don't really want to hear, things I don't even need to hear. Surprised? Sure. Mortified? Absolutely. In doubt? Never more.

Oh, simple thing, where have you gone? Where have you gone? I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin...

My heroes

Been a wonderful day, cause u know what, I finally spent overtime in my client office, and as an additional note, gue jadi kuncen (red: juru kunci) selama 2 hari berturut-turut, Bo! Sang mas-mas yang jagain ruangan akhirnya menyerah nungguin gue kerja jam 9 malem, dan menyerahkan segambreng kunci dengan petuah-petuah sepanjang dosa (._.)

Sigh, berhubung satu lantai dah sepi, ngga salah dong kalo gue akhirnya memanfaatkan kabel telepon buat internetan. Hehehe. Jadilah gue nyambi browsing (dan chatting) di sela-sela kegiatan nguli gue. In one of those moment, I stumbled upon this cute quiz, tentang Which Heroes Are You. Secara ya belakangan ini gue mengikuti tu serial dengan intens (hueks), gue pun mengikuti tu quiz dengan harap-harap cemas, euy! Dan hasilnya, gue adalah Niki Sanders dan Sylar! Hihihihi... what a combination ngga sih? Sama-sama sadis, sama-sama kuat, sama-sama hobi ripped head/body open.. I mean, what???? Is that me?? No way! Gue kan lucu dan menggemaskan =)

Trus trus, selama seminggu penuh dengan jadwal-jadwal yang padat, koq minggu gue jadi bengong ya. Huhuhuhu, pengen nonton Pirates niy. Tapi why oh why yaa.. everybody jadi ikutan bangkrut. Dasar bulan tua!

Ah, tadi pagi gue nonton Oprah, one of the greatest person ever, dan temanya tentang Challenge Day di SMU2 Amrik. Kayanya sih untuk memperingati peristiwa berdarah penembakan di sekolah di Amrik itu deh. Gila ya, even after Columbine High School, there's still more... I gotta say, this episode is a bit moving.. bener2 ngejleb banget pas nonton.

For you yang ngga nonton, intinya di SMU itu dikumpulin 64 murid2, dari junior sampe senior, dari geek sampe hunk, dari goth sampe cheerleader. Cool huh? Trus ada game gtu, mereka didudukin melingkar di kursi2 yang udah disusun. Bahkan dari situ aja dah keliatan gmana each and everyone of them choose to sit next to their own cliques. Genk2 gtu maennya. Berasa lah.

Trus ada instrukturnya gtu, yang memperkenalkan simbol LOVE yang jempol, telunjuk ama kelingking diacungkan gtuh (and for all this time, I thought it was a symbol of rock 'n roll).

Ada beberapa sesi, cthnya "Accross the Line", dll, but my most favourite one is when they were asked to finish the sentence, "If you really knew me, you would know that..."

Nah.. as predicted, they started with a simple thing like, "If you really knew me, you would know that I'm a football player and I play tuba in music class". Yah, remeh-temeh kaya gitu deh. Tapi lama-lama, berhubung satu grup itu hanya ada sekitar 7-8 orang, they continually telling even deeper fact about themselves. Which was quite mengharukan. Banyaaaak banget yang nangis karena mendem perasaan mereka. And I'm not saying in romantic way, but touchy sekali. To watch each and everyone of those kids share their burden and 'baggage' (as Oprah was saying) itu bikin gue soooo moved.

It made me think as well...

"If you really knew me, you would know that..."

What would you say?

Leaping

Kemaren tu pertama kalinya gue ngeliat pembuatan 'Suster Ngesot' versi anak2 Fasilkom jaman sekarang =D Dooh, temenku yang malang.. jadi tokoh suster itu emang ngga gampang yah.. cape bo!

Anyway, gue baruuu aja creambath. Sigh, this is the moment of truth! Gue bener-bener meresapi betapa wangi dan ringannya rambut gue, betapa halus teksturnya, dan betapa legam warnanya ._.

YA AMPUN, GUE DAH LAMA BGT NGGA NYALON, JENG!!!

Nyalon itu emang indah...

Delayed Moment

Not make any contact with the blind world of internet for almost a month. Not be able to exchange news and find out what’s going on, who married whom, who engaged to whom, who got accepted in a new job and where. Not knowing the most recent news from those I care a lot and get in touch with people I miss.

And to absorb all of those just in one day.

Is simply too much.

I once wish for my old life before this kind of lifestyle struck me right in my face. the easiness of living, the privilege to stay up late and get up even more late, the fun I’ve been through, going to the movies every time I want to, eat every where I like, read every book I can get, the little piece heaven of mine..

Each and every time I looked back, I felt like I’m wasting my chance to spend my free time as much as I could. Well, people can never get enough, can’t they? It’s not that I don’t like my life now, or the way I live, I hardly can complain about it, but then what else could I possibly need?

Self manager, self finance accountant, an assistant?
Camaraderie?
Or time?

24 hours a day seemed not enough anymore. I spend only 6 hours to sleep and the rest of it to work. I eat my breakfast on the bus, I get snacks at the office, I go for dinner in a constant time to a constant place every single night, and got back home just right in time to have (or rather, try to have) a nice deep sleep. Once in a while I missed my old magazine job, where everything seems like fun and more fun. I even rarely go to church. I choose to stay in my room, get every piece of rest and relaxation I need. If only my mom knows about it. Hehehe.

My job is still exciting, at least I hoped so. I’m trying to make the fun out of it. But why do people always expect more? Now I can get anything I want, but why am I still not satisfied? There’s got to be more in life that I could never have the chance to achieve. Yet. But when? And why the heck are my thoughts jumbling around like this?

Never mind. Afterwards, I won’t recall everything I wrote and start another day with the same routines. Boring? Nope. Tiring? Yes. I need some refreshing moment here. Maybe travel a bit. Going somewhere else. Or simply sit and enjoy good movies in theatre. I began to addict to food. Fat and junk food, either fried or baked. Maybe I’ll never be a coffee junkie, but surely I’ll be some snack devotee. Euh, help! By the way, this American Idol week was fascinating. Inspiring songs it is. You’ll never know how much I loved old time music, especially an inspiring one. Even a simple “Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Ray Charles” could cheer my day.

Speaking of cheering my day, I got this so kneel-downing kind of supervisor. He’s just drop dead handsome. Hahahahahaha! The bad thing is, he’s not my supervisor, he’s not even in my department. Damn! The best thing that could happen is when we trapped (notice how I used the word trapped) in the same elevator. Or maybe passing by each other in the rest room or something. He’s just ganteng, oy! Typical cute France guy. Oh, heaven! This is the real fun. Every time I saw this guy, I’ll abruptly wordless. Not that kind of thunderstruck, but it’s more like fan meeting the superstar. Bweahuehauheuaheua.

Kocak de kalo diinget-inget. Secara yang demen ama ni SPV bukan gue doang, but the entire department of mine. Hihihihihi. Memang rumput di pekarangan tetangga selalu lebih hijau.

Too bad, this week (after I deliberately take an off sick vacation yesterday), my team was moved to the next building. More precisely, to the client’s building. Hence, I can’t see that cutey any longer. Hiks! At first, kirain kerja di gedung yang ini bakal sengsara abis. Tapi ternyata ngga juga. Hehehe. Ruangannya lebih luas, bisa make a noise, masang lagu, dan lebih santai aja kerjanya. Hahaha. Babe no more nih.

Can't believe

That I wrote almost two pages for today entry and yet I left it in my office laptop back there in Semanggi! Crabby Patty!!!! I totally forgot I kept it there, so now basically I'm trying (hard) to remember what the heck I've been wrote in that notes...

Oh iya, hari ini gue offsick loooh, thanks to my tummy yang beberapa hari ini bermasalah, dimulai dari niat iseng sit up setiap hari yang akhirnya mengakibatkan kram perut, guys! Sh*t!

Chelsea - Liverpool 1-0 yah? Well well... it's seems like MU is going to face Liverpool in the final then =P Poor roommate.. hahahahaha... dia ngefans berat ama yang namanya Chelsea dan Milan, which dua2nya ngga bakal maju ke final Champion, hehehehehe...

Duuh, sekali2nya offsick, pengen bersenang-senang deeeeeeeh... gue kangen yang namanya pergi ke mall di hari kerja (please notice, hari kerja!), meni-pedi (ookay), dan moviees... aaaw, I need movies a lot.. kabarnya sih roommate sayah mau beli DVD Player, amieen... hehehehe..

By the way, nyebelin de, ruangan gue yang sedianya adalah ruang meeting partner sekarang ngga bole ditempatin lagi. Sebagai gantinya, gue (and the rest of the team) dipindahin ke ruang manajer. Yang lebih kecil. Yang lebih sumpek. Yang ngga ada jendela buat ngeliat pelangi ato hujan di luar sana. Yang ngga banget. Tu ruang buat 1 orang, tapi ditempatin 8 orang. Can u imagine how crowded that is???? Gilanya, alasannya sih gara2 tim gue ribut banget kalo kerja. YA IYALAHHH *nada adhita ambil goyang2 pala ala India*

How do u expect the whole team work in silent? Emangnya kita pembunuh bayaran?

Beeeh...

Mana access card gue buat ke ruangan yang baru ini suka bermasalah. Ngga bisa masuk dari pintu terdekat. Meaning: I have to take all way back, around the floor to get into that place. Suka malu de kalo ngga bisa keluar dari WC gara2 access card ngga berfungsi.

Untuk ngegantinya pun gue horor, huhuhu.. takut ditanyain soal laptop yang ilang =_= Secara lantai buat ngurusin ini adalah lantai yang sama.

Eh iya, di kantor gue ni ada "sun in the rainy day". He's a french guy. Good looking, awfully cute and cute. More cuteness and I shall be die lah. He's a supervisor, shamely not in my department, tapi di bagian auditing. Tiap kali ketemu ato papasan gtu di rest room ato lift suka bikin gue nyengir2 sendirian. Hahahaha, ganteng rek! Asli ganteng... even Adhita mengakuinya.. tapi masih malu-malu... wakakakakaka...

eh iya, cecep dateng nih...

Amazing Tawt

Currently gue lagi sitting down in front of my PC, planning what to do next, well I s'pose to do my office assignment but decided to do it later.

Yap, jumat kemaren gue nonton seharian kaya pengangguran ngga ada kerjaan di kamar kost (thx to my latest roommate who has a TV, I am outdated no more =D), I saw this unique-unusual news, which is BINARAGAWAN DEMONSTRASI MENENTANG IPDN.

I gotta say that.. it was the very first time I enchanted with some folks doing protest on the street. They sure got sumtin to say, man! "Belajar tu pake ini (sambil nunjukin kepala), bukan pake ini (sambil ngacungin tinju)!" Hmm, I like the message. Kesan yang gue tangkep adalah tu binaragawan-binaragawan nantangin anak2 IPDN kalo mau ngadu otot, sangar-sangar banget sih tampangnya, tapi bodinya... hm.. ngga deh..

Second, kemaren gue ngabisin waktu untuk menemukan teori menarik di Breadtalk. Pria pembuat roti definitely lebih, lebih, amat sangat lebih sensitif than average men. Try to stare a bread-guy (???) while doing his work, and zap! He'll look back at you at once. Ni aga bodoh ya kalo dilakukan dari jarak deket, soalnya... duh! (O_o) Tapi kalo dilakukan dari jarak rada jauh, say 6-7 meter dan lebih dari sekali... hmm, mencurigakan. Aslilah kemaren gue cuman ngakak tiap kali ni teori berhasil. Oh iya, this trick might only work if you're a girl =P

Trus, one of my fortunate buying for this month is "Traveler's Tale" by Adhitya Mulya, dkk. Ini buku touchy banget buat gue (._.) Secara gue pengen banget menjelajah bumi and visit more than 10 different lovely countries around the world, this is such an inspiring book. Plotnya sendiri tuh juga interesting, asli interesting, karena gue suka berasa ngejleb ndiri pas baca. Ngga tau juga yaaaa, apa ini gara2 gue anak kost plus anak rantau, tapi ada satu quote yang bikin gue diem bentar. Traveling, it gives you home in thousand strange places, then leaves you stranger in your own land.

Aaaaaah, fully recommended de buku yang ini.

Apalagi yah? Ooh iya, did I mention kalo pasangan seleb paling gue cinta adalah (aside from Ryan Seacrest-Simon Cowell) adalah Christian Sugiono - Titi Kamal? =D Wakakaka.. ni pasangan paling lama yang ada dalam memori gue (at least mulai awal gue kuliah) dan sampai sekarang mereka masih aja jadian, that's cool, dude (mengingat CV gue juga ngga bagus-bagus amat ya). Sigh, hopefully mereka langgeng, hehehehe...

Trus, gue lagi nyari lagu-lagu berikut (halah, bahasa gue):
- Can't Wait by Dashboard Confessional
- After All This Time by Simon Webbe
- Eleanor by Low Millions
- Lost In Love by Gamma
- Hanya Satu by Mocca

Anyhoo, di kantor gue yang sekarang I have this partner (maksudnya partner company, not literally my colleague) yang punya aura najis keren banget. He used to be called 'BaBe' (baca: ba-be not beyb -_-) ama anak-anak di bawah departemennya. Di kantor gue, absensi tu kan ngga ada, penggantinya adalah PMS (timesheet) yang harus diisi tiap 10 hari. Ngisinya juga ngisi sendiri dengan format (senin - 8 jam, selasa - 9 jam, dst).

Naaah, si BaBe ini one time pernah ditanya ama senior gue.

Senior gue: Pak, Bapak ngga pernah takut ni anak-anak cheating pas ngisi PMS? Kan ngga ada supervised dari siapapun dan bisa aja dong kita bohong, ngaku kerja lembur 11 jam padahal ngga?

BaBe: Well (diam sebentar), I trust my employees...

Waktu diceritain, gue sampe diem dengernya. It gives me chills, man! Hehehehe, seriously, this partner punya aura keren banget. Suaranya tu pelan, lambat, tapi tegas. Tampangnya dah kaya bokap bijak banget ._. Tapi saking berauranya, tim gue suka plinplan... huhuhu...

Misalnya, siang ini udah rame-rame disepakatin kalo wiken ngga mau kerja, eeh pas sorenya si BaBe dateng, dia ngomong gini, "Sudah sampai mana?". Temen gue jawab, "Ya, begini Pak, sudah sampai ini ini ini, kita ngebahas ini ini ini". BaBe nanya lagi, "Timelinenya?". Temen gue jawab, "Hari ini selesai kita adaptasi, Pak, laporannya bla bla bla.". BaBe manggut-manggut, "Lalu? Besok masuk?". Tziing, fyi si Babe nanya ini pas Kamis lalu, which besoknya (Jumat) kan LIBUR NASIONAL gtu loooh. Karena temen gue juga terdiam, si BaBe mandang gue (damn!) dan nanya, "Maya, kamu besok masuk?". Gue shock, euy! Gue nyaris ngangguk kalo temen gue ngga langsung mendehem dan ngomong, "Ehm, Pak... Maya besok Paskah..."

BaBe lantas mandang temen gue lalu nanya, "Oh? Ke gereja ya? Tapi Sabtunya masuk kan?". Kyaaaa.... ketikan gue di keyboard pun freeze, tegang menanti jawaban temen gue. Duh, guys, ni BaBe punya aura yang bisa bikin kita SUSAAAAAH banget buat bilang ngga, parah lah... temen gue alhasil jawab spontan, "Mungkiin.. setengah hari, Pak."

$^%^$%^#%$@

And to make it worst, BaBe lagi-lagi memandang gue dan ngomong, "Kamu Sabtu masuk kan? Atau digeser ke Minggu?". Gilaaaaaaaa, gue ber-ah - eh - hmm kaya orang bego. Sinting tu BaBe, jantung gue ampe berdetak kenceng banget saking speechlessnya. Huhuhu, untunglah temen gue langsung confirm lagi kalo Sabtu mungkin pada datang walaupun setengah hari. Dan BaBe pun pergi.

Abis BaBe pergi, satu ruangan langsung mengerang. Aaargh, auranya BaBe strikes again!!! Untungnya kerjaannya rada beres hari itu juga, dan kalo dipikir2, masih bisa dilanjutin di rumah sendiri-sendiri. Gosh! I'm not saying he's a freaky guy yang bikin horror, he's a very cool and nice guy instead, tapi auranya itu loooh.. Huhuhuhu .. Gue pengen de jadi bos kaya dia. Amiiiien, My!

Hihihi, mau nulis apalagi yah? Oh iye, bo... hari ini gue kangen akut ama anak-anak yang scattered around the world. Dooh, manusia-manusia kapan ngumpul lagi? Mei pengen refreshing ke Bandung nih. PREMONITION niy, yang ada Sandra Bullocknya. Kayanya bagus yah ?

Hmm

Thanks ya buat yang udah pada nelfon, sms, atau nanyain kabar gue setelah kost gue kemaren kecolongan.. things' so far so good. at least gue lagi nungguin putusan kantor tentang sanksi laptop ilang (which rarely happen), but all of my beloved team were showing their cute lil caring.. they even had a lot more stress than I had.. sampe ke manajer2nya pada ngasi support dan ngga cuman itu, they were kind of stood up for me.. making up stories (which a bit hiperbolic) to the partners.. and uhm... making me laugh..

~Priceless...

Ah, liat putusannya ntar-ntar aja.. atleast gue sekarang yakin sanksi terburuknya bukan masuk penjara >_< Dasar policy nyebelin... untung laptop gue isinya blum nyangkut2 tentang data klien..

Anywaaaaaaaaay.....

Forget the bad things..

Betewe ni anak-anak udah mulai scattered ke mana tau yah? Singapore? Portugal? Aussie? German? Hongkong? Batam? Nias? Anywhere else?

Terisolasi di kantor bikin gue jadi ketinggalan berita mulu ni.. sapa yang ulang taun, sapa yang married, sapa yang baru jadian.. waduh, mbok saya ini di-update gtu loh...

Major Changing..

It's been a very.. extremely... absolutely hell of a week!

Tired.. excited.. drop dead.. laugh.. and stressing a lot... mix of feeling in the last couple of days...

Hueeee... sampun melas, mas?

Itu bahasa apa sih? Gue dah ber-jowo2 gini kalo dah di kantor, enak juga yah logatnya =D atleast lebih make sense daripada logat Batak yang nyebelin itu...

Duuu, gmana ni gmana? Should I continue working in this company (assuming I didn't get sack out before my contract period was over)? Kerjanya fun juga considering team gue sarapnya amit-amit.. berasa ngga kerja padahal loadnya tinggi banget..

One moment semuanya tegang ampe berantem satu sama lain, one moment semuanya ngakak bareng-bareng, one moment semuanya saling memaki klien, and one moment kita pada diem tekun ngerjain proyek..

Jarak waktu antara those moments juga dalam hitungan menit... sinting, euy...

Tapi masa gue 2 wiken berturut-turut harus ngantor (daaaan lembur)?? I need to have a decent life here... Pulang nyampe kost jam 12 malem ato 1/2 1 pagi, fiiiuuuh, padahal dah harus ada di kantor jam 1/2 9 besoknya... keren banget de ritme hidup gue.. dah kaya workaholic banget padahal sih arti sebenernya jongos =D

Hehehehe, tapi yang bisa menetralisir tu hectic job emang suasana tim sih... walopun gue selalu di-ceng2in senantiasa (brr, kayanya ngga bisa idup ya tu orang kalo ngga ngeledekin gue sehari aja >_<), walopun gue dikatain supir (JUST BECAUSE i ordered the goddamn Fanta Susu waktu ditanyain mau mesen apa dari ruangan meeting, dasar kupret!), aaaah, above all those things.. I'm happy to be there, hehehehehehe...

Which reminds me of the big question, gue pengen ngga ya masuk sana? Kalo diliat-liat, kerjaan dan suasana kantor di sono itu (meaning: jadi IT auditor) tu kesannya suraaam banget, sendirian ngadep kompi sambil mengolah data2 klien, trus ruangan sepi dengan kantor2 partner mengelilingi... brr...

Tapi secara gue selama ini kerjanya di tim gtuh (soalnya lagi ada proyek ama klien) yang ruangannya juga eksklusif sendiri (di meeting room milik Mr.Walter =P), dengan peran masing2 anak tu jelas banget (gue sumpah salut abis ama anak2 dokumentasi, anjrit lengkap banget dan detil banget >_< walopun anaknya bokep mind gtu, bah!) gue jadi enjoy..

I can't stand the thought of having a serious working hour with a strict job desc dan yaaah, gtu deh...

Kalo tu proyek masih berlangsung lama, gue masuk deh =P Hehehhe, gue prefer buat kerja tim selalu niiih... Gmana duuunks? Gue dah dinasehatin om gue buat milih posisi kerja yang serius, yang ada jenjang karirnya, biar ngga kutu loncat mulu (inget umur, My!) .. so, this was a damn excellent oppurtunity (again, assuming gue ngga dipecat sebelum kontrak berakhir) but but but...

Ah, hell lah... ni office keren koq, walopun Microsoft certified and on, tapi keren, hehehehe...

==updated 2 hours later==

Forget all those crap! I'm officially become one of the permanent junior staffs in here >_< Damn, so kebetulan! Gila, gue kirain dipanggil manajer buat apaan, ternyata buat dipromosiin, ehehehehehe... syenank... hihihi...

Kalimat pertama dari manajer gue (and the rest of the team) adalah.... "Selamat datang di neraka!"

Bwahuaheuaheuhauehua... Hell, here I come...

Anyhoo, tonight meeting gue ngaco banget -___-

A: Jadi ini migrate data ke wadah, naah, volume wadah ini fleksibel, bisa mengecil dan membesar, kaya kondom! Kondom tau, my? Ngga tau? Ntar gue kasih...

gue: what????

B: Ah, kalo dia sih... selama bernafas dan berlubang...

all: WHAT????

-------------------

Betewe, haven't been watching American Idol recently.. I kind of sad seeing Sanjaya isn't like him anymore.. Gila gue inget banget pas audisi gue langsung tertarik ma ni bocah.. tapi Sabtu kemaren gue ngeliatnya... he's not him.. kata2nya Paula ngejleb banget de, "We dont see the thing we see in you at the first time" >_< Huhuhu, jadi sedih.. dan orang bodoh mana yang ngebonding rambutnya dia heh????? His character lied in his hair, gtu loh...

Exciting Job

Well... for the first time in 3 weeks of working and an hell of overtime night yesterday, I finally got my private moment while the rest of the team were 'fighting' with the client.. hehehe...

Here I am, sitting alone in a partner meeting room, temporarily used as my office in the next 3 months, listening to the music, sipping a coffee, and reading an ASP book. Ha! I never realized how I miss my college time and the necessity to read those material books. I mean, I actually enjoy reading that only-god-knows-how-thick the particular ASP.Net Book. Imagine that!

During my peaceful reading moment in this room, people are passing by outside my room, and most of them are ‘bule’ =P Not the cute one, but those you can really picture as boss look-alike. Those men are partners of the company, and each of them carries this mystical aura, scream an ‘I’mBusyRightNowAndIhaveBusinessToHandleSoGetYourAssMoveCozIdon’tLikeToSeeYouSittingAroundLikeThat’ right in front of everyone’s face. Hmm… just close the door, shall we?

Not all of them are jerk… as a matter of fact; none of
them are (at least, as far as I know), well, except for the bald one carry around cigarette everywhere as if this was his bloody home. Doesn’t he read the warning? Which part of the No-Smoking sign he couldn’t possibly understand? My associate once told me that that guy only enjoys cigar and wine. Typical...

Here in my office, no loud speaking allowed, not even music played in your laptop unless you put on the earphone or something (but I got lucky for having my own room =P). Speaking of which, no piracy software (or those free one) are allowed to be installed! I got really freaked out if they found out that I installed the Firefox (since based on the experience, even Wawan got the warning call just because he put that browser in his laptop) so I swore I would never ever plug my laptop to the network. Incase something happen… euh…

Since the company is soooo Microsoft based, they literally adore those IE and .NET environment. But.. who am I to complain? =P

Aaaaah, yesterday was truly a hard slog. I step out from this office at 11.00 pm, ladies and gents. Too scared to take the taxi, I decided to grab the bus. But alas, I didn’t get the seat so I got to stand all the way home. What’s wrong with people? What were they all doing to come home that late?

Anyway busway, Jakarta seemed to be in a very bad mood lately, huh? So bloody hot in the morning and so bloody wet in the afternoon. I got trapped in the restaurant for about an hour this afternoon (not that I complain =P) but honestly... what season are we in right now anyway? Musim ujan apa musim duren?

Blog kuh

I miss youuuuuuu....

Tapi seminggu ngga menyentuh dunia maya ternyata ngga segitu jeleknya.. hehehehe... lumayan melepaskan diri dari internet addiction, tapi malah beralih jadi moccachino addict =P

Anyway, the real dunia kantoran ternyata bikin kantong kempes... sekaligus ngemat gila-gilaan... Paradoks memang.. tapi itu bener loh, gue jadi hemaaaaaaaaaat banget pas makan siang, dasar gelo, nasi + telur dadar aja 6000 IDR!! Mau jadi apa bangsa ini? Makan saja sulit... Di lain pihak, gue jadi banyak pengeluaran ._. Jadi perlu beli rok, sepatu dan kemeja.. Eeeeuuuh....
Mahluk-mahluk yang gue temui di kantor (til now I only recognize tim gue yang ber-8, sisanya blur T__T) untungnya manusia-manusia sarap, hehehehe... ketawa mulu ngeliatinnya... Mana pada baik-baik... hiks hiks, tapi koq ngga ada yang bisa (dan mau) ngoding yaaa??

Ritual ngantor jadi suka bikin de javu.. koq gue bangun jam segini mulu yah? Tapi koq telat mulu yah? Koq siang-siang
ngeliat jendela luar pasti ujan mulu yah? Dan koq gue ngga ngeh-ngeh ni kodingan orang yah?

Aga kangen ma keadaan kantor di majalah.. how are they doin? What's going on?

Women in Fashion

Currently there are TWO women out there in a world of fashion yang menarik minat saya (halah, saya!) And lucunya both of them was started with the word Anna. Anna Piaggi dan Anna Wintour.

First, nama-nama ini adalah tamu2 kehormatan yang sit in the front row pas Fashion Week Spring 2007 kemaren.

Buat yang masi nubi macemnya gue nih, jadi kali-kali aja ngga tau, Anna Piaggi adalah sosok yang disebut-sebut sebagai beauty icon. For only God knows why. Dia itu fashion writer di Vogue Italia dengan selera seni yang nyeni banget (terlalu berat buat gue, karena gue ngga ngerti seninya dia) I mean, just look at her! Kalo lo nge-search semua informasi tentang tokoh ini, dia selalu nongol dengan dandanan super nyentrik dan selera baju yang "Maaaan, what the??" How can those fashion people adore this lady anyway? Don't u think the art taste of someone was shown by the way he/she dressed up? Well... ok, gue masi bingung... Konon, ni ibu-ibu ngga pernah muncul dengan baju yang sama lebih dari sekali. Which is normal since... who would wear the same eclectic weird dress more than once? Gosh!

Duh, gue masi bingung >_< Karl Lagerfeld, Manolo Blahnik, and Dolce&Gabbana. Please... This fashion thing's just... too much...

Anywaaaaay, the second lady, sumpa de pertama kali gue nge-search barisan front row sang Fashion Week, pas nyampe di fotonya Anna Wintour, gue berasa stunned. This lady was cool! Fyi, gue bahkan (sampai saat itu) ngga tau dia itu siapa. Cuman sih, jabatan dan pekerjaan yang disebutin di sebelah gambar rada-rada bikin gue amazed. Editor in Chief US Vogue.

Ngeliat postur tubuh pas duduk, gaya dandanan, sorotan mata dan selera baju (duh) she pretty much reminds me of the character Miranda Priestly di Devil Wears Prada (my fave movie) And it turned out to be.... TRUE!! Goood, I'm good! Gue ampe histeris pas nge-search di Google tentang ni Anna Wintour, dan dia emang jadi role modelnya tu tokoh. Hahahaha, secara yaa, yang ngarang Devil Wears Prada emang pernah internship ama dia. Officenya was strikingly similar. Dan kocaknya, Anna Wintour ini pernah mengancam designer2 beken kalo sampe mereka ngelakuin cameo di film itu, dia bakal nge-black list nama2nya dari majalah. Waaw. Segitunya...

Models..

Quite weird pas baca postingan Kania yang juga tentang www.style.com =D Secara yaa.. baru-baru ini gue juga kebetulan disuru ama bos gue buat bikin fashion news.. beauty news.. apalah pokoknya jenis2 artikel begituan...

Setelah kesandung berbagai situs... akhirnya gue juga ke si style.com ini.. Hahahahaha, kalo missKania demen koleksinya Ungaro, Pucci, dan Diane von Furstenberg, gue malah demen ama koleksinya Giorgio Armani, Badgley Mischka, dan Celine.

Kyaaa... dan dari hasil penelitian gue terhadap tampang2 modelnya.. gue paling demen ni satu model, kelahiran Serbia-Montenegro, namanya Emina Cunmulaj. Cantik, bettts! Gila, gue stunning liat dia waktu di runway... ngga segitunya juga sih.. cuman emang tampangnya lucu ajah...

Ada satu lagi yang namanya Bruna Tenorio, tampangnya rada-rada blasteran Jepang-jepang gtu, lucunya gue lupa tu orang meragain bajunya sapa.. Chanel atau siapa ya??? Sigh.. tapi keren de, beneran...




soo, guys, yang di atas itu Bruna dan di bawah itu Emina... kewl huh???

Kereeen...

Belakangan ini kegiatan gue itu cukup aneh-aneh menurut ukuran seorang -my-

First, gue ikut psikotes-nya Toshiba.. hahahahaha, dan yang lucunya, gue lulus, padahal pas tes gambar tu gue nyaris emosi berat.. ABIS IDE GUE!!!! Setelah bikin 7 gambar, gue STUCK senajis-najisnya ama gambar ke-8.. aslilah ngga tau mau gambar apaan lagi, huhuhuhu... Abis psikotes, ada tes wawancara, nah ini chaos =D Okeh, ternyata gue bukan tipikal manusia yang bisa ngejawab pertanyaan standar seperti, "Apa motivasi kamu melamar di perusahaan ini?" dengan jawaban yang sama standarnya seperti, "Karena perusahaan ini perusahaan yang besar, terkenal, dan saya tertarik untuk ikut menyumbangkan ide dan pikiran saya untuk kemajuan perusahaan ini."

Nooo!! Instead of that, gue malah ngejawab, "Well, karena pada dasarnya saya ingin tahu apakah saya bisa lolos tes semacam ini atau tidak."

~chaos...

Truss.. second one, gue mulai rajin ngumpulin musik-musik aneh di www.projectplaylist.com, which yang rata-rata musik2 jadul semua, hehehehehe.. yang lucu sih Steven Curtis Chapman dengan I Will Be Here. Ni website (thanks to Wira) bisa sekalian jadi wadah yang bagus buat nyari mp3, secara yaa.. dia muterin lagu tu streaming, jadi yang dituju langsung file mp3 yang di-share ama orang-orang. Cool, huh?

Truss, yang ketiga, gue ke dokter gigi setelah hampir 12 TAHUN lamanya gue ngga ke dokter gigi. Alhasil, gue divonis GIGI BOLONG! Huhuhuhu, dan instead of my loving friend(s) giving me a supporting and calming voices, they keep telling me HORROR STORIES tentang pengalaman ke dokter gigi. B-A-G-U-S!

Nasri dengan pengalaman saraf giginya dicabut pake sejenis benang jahit lah karena kebolongan itu sudah mencapai bagian bersaraf dari giginya, si syn yang ngomong kalo ditambal itu kudu dioprek-oprek dulu lah lobangnya pake bor biar bersih, dan iang yang ngga membantu sama sekali dengan bilang kalo giginya patah separoh...

The last one is, kan ceritanya ada dosen baru (dan ganteng) di Fasilkom. Awalnya sih gue ngga berasa dia ganteng =P Secaraaaa ya, namanya aja udah bikin ilfil, orang Batak pula, dari jauh kaya Om Johny (lokal, maap), dan gtu deh. Eeeh, ternyata pas dia nongol di lab IR, orangnya lumayan, tampang-tampang Jepang gtu, hohoho.. pas diliat CVnya, ternyata emang pernah ngajar di Fasilkom jaman baheula...

Alhasil diajakin moto bareng ama anak-anak, hihihihi.. berhubung dah lulus, muka jadi kebal dan tebal.. hehehehehehhe...

Get random, boy!

David Blaine is a cool, extraordinary and a maniac =D Not to mention, he's HOT also. Bwuaheuaheuaheua... Sum says he's a mentalist, hipnotist (bener ngga sih??), and a wicked magician. Ihihihihi, demen de ngeliat performance-nya dia... Mulai dari sulap nyopotin gigi, levitation, ngisi kaleng bir yang kosong jadi penuh, ngisi cangkir kopi pake uang receh, etc etc...

Waktu nge-research (istilah keren doang) ttg ni orang di internet (well, mostly sih on youtube), banyaaaaak banget komen2 menjatuhkan dan meremehkan - either about David Blaine himself or generally about magic - Heran, napa ya orang-orang suka ngerendahin gtu.. Mending mereka jago... Hahahahaha..

Personally, my fave performance was when he tied up his shoe laces just by flicking his feet...
Trully for entertaining purpose only, and that's exactly what I like from this guy.. ahahahaha... you go, boy!

Betewe baswe, after I read sum blog, gue jadi tertarik untuk nyari buku yang judulnya A Million Little Pieces by James Frey yang sempat dijadiin feature di Oprah's Book Club. Anyone ever seen (or read) that book? Katanya tentang kisah non fiksi narapidana yang ada unsur narkoba, kriminalitas, dll. Well, sounds cool to me... hehehehe...

Trusss... sekarang ini lagi demen lagunya Oliver James - Greatest Story Ever Told. This is an old song, but my mellow mood strikes back so... it kind of.. you know what I mean =P

Aahahahaha.. ini nih, another new object of affection. Duet gendeng dari Gonzaga University ini berhasil membuat gue ngakak tengah malem di lab gara-gara ngeliat performance mereka. I mean, they're insane =D Please welcome... BaratsAndBereta Thanks to Ramot yang ngenalin ni dua manusia ancur, akhirnya gue jadi ngga bosen di lab hingga dini hari... hihihihi... Liat aja deh, my fave clip of those hillarious persona..

Yang satu namanya Luke Barats and yang satunya lagi Joe Bereta.. dan kalo dipikir-pikir, ni duet reminds me of Boby and Satria =D But 'fcourse you gotta see the other clip to find whether I'm telling u the truth or not... hahahaha...

[all videos and pictures are belong to their own respected owner] - tumben gue nulis ginian =P

Speech

Who's Barack Obama?

Surely I never heard anything 'bout this guy until recently I browsed over 43people.com and noticed that there are quite a number of people who want to meet in person with this guy.

The list also had J.K Rowling and Oprah's name on it.. so.. this guy had to be someone famous...

It turn out that.. he was a senator from Illinois... should run for a president... an inspiring speaker... had a great smile.. and a bit reminded me of Denzel Washington, really =P

Pretty cool to have a nu personality becoming the president of United States... especially if he's not white... (sue me!) =D

Anywaaaay.. that's not exactly what I want to tell in this post... Well, gini loh, after gue nge-browsing2 google and his website, I was interested in his speech...

Menarik, hehehehe.. soalnya awalan speech dia itu suka bikin gue senyum2 sendiri...

Quote:
" I want to start by thanking you all for allowing me to share in your miracle today."
"We meet here at a challenging time for labor and a challenging time for America."
"That's why I stand here today."
"I have two daughters, ages five and eight."

Jadi berasa nonton pelem-pelem sejarah...

Nu year resolution?

I got this from one of those columns in Yahoo! website. Interesting. The real article is about "5 Principles for Happiness" or sumtin like that. But I was captured by these question. Katanya sih bisa bikin lo instrospeksi diri tentang hidup lo selama ini (in this case, one year behind).

  • What makes you happy at work?
Cozy ambiance, relaxing music, passionate co-workers, fast connection internet, and me enjoying my work...
  • What makes you happy at home?
Home? What's that? =P Well, since I live on my own, I would prefer a santai-malasMalasan-tidurMulu-beresinKamar-bacaAllDayLong kind of situation in there... Yup, that's what 'home' are for...
  • What makes you happy with your friends and family?
The feeling that I belong to them...
  • What makes you happy when you're by yourself?
Ahahaha, I love to travel alone, go to the theaters alone, write things and solve it in my head (alone). I had this stupid behaviour - talking to myself - which I did for the sake of keeping my English being maintained =P That's the top notch of my happiness when I'm by myself.
  • What do you love to do?
Seeing this question really remind me of my 2Do List Before I Die, don't you think? =D Sekarang, yang paling pengen gue lakuin adalah keluar dari Jakarta. Either menikmati pelayaran 3 hari 2 malam ke Medan sendirian (seperti yang dulu udah pernah gue lakukan) atau ke Malaysia with couple of friends. About the cruise, I'm planning to do it differently. Maybe talking with some strangers. Sleep in a business compartment (instead of economic class yang tempat tidurnya looked like ikan-pepes-dijejerin). Taking pictures with the dolphin (or shark?). And try the best I can... not to drawn.
  • What would you do with your life today if you weren't afraid of failure?
Taking a chance and step onto the bloody interview again. Gue aga dendam juga gara-gara yang waktu itu gagal. Bleh!
  • What's not working in your life?
Love life? Bwuehauehuaheuahuehauheuahua....
  • What are you currently doing that prevents you from experiencing joy?
Stuck in daily job and financial problem. You know, the idea of saving-for-the-future? Ideally I shoulda done that. Hahahaha. But kenyataannya, I'm a big spender x( Damn it!
  • What's working in your life?
My editor job. Berhubung itu kerjaan yang menarik minat gue dari semenjak gue kelas VI SD.
  • Who's not working in your life?
My family here in Jakarta... and I mean, both side...
  • Who in your life is subtracting value from and adding misery to it?
Now, now.. that's a secret...
  • Can you fix any of these relationships, or should you let them go from your life?
Ahahahaha, I can.. but the real question is.. Do I want to?
  • What relationships are working in your life?
Mostly my friendship relationship (it rhymes!) =P
  • If we were getting together one year from today, what would have to happen for you to be able to tell me that you now have more joy in your life?
Ah, one year from now? I would've taken my Master Degree.. or maybe are doing it at that time. I'm doing a job which I enjoy, and perhaps taking a huge step to maintain a healthy relationship. All in all, I want to (and have to) improve myself. Say, having more pedicure session? =P
  • What's the single most important thing you've learned about yourself as a result of answering these questions?
He-he, I can see that I'm not that well prepared about my future, I live my life as simple as I could. I try to enjoy every bit of it. And by the way, I tend to put myself in such an opposite side. I have no idea why. It really drawn me into trouble, but I can't stop it =P

Haaa.... welcome 2007! Try to enjoy everything you did in making a better -my-
