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.

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?

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...
