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.

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 -___-

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?
