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.

Soundtrack

After a while, watching and listening to most of the series' soundtracks, this song strangely came up more often than the other song. Hell, I heard it when I watched Journey Man, Las Vegas, Private Practice, Sexy Dirty Money, Big Shots, Gossip Girl, House, and now Grey's Anatomy?
Geez, this song is laku, yah???
Peter, Bjorn and John - Young Folks.
Anyway, just wanna update this thing with my recent playlist,

01. Miley Cyrus - See You Again
02. The Cranberries - Saving Grace
03. Bitter:Sweet - The Mating Game
04. Landon Pigg - Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop
05. T.Pain ft Florida - Low
06. Yael Naim - New Soul
07. Dream Theater- The Spirit Carries On
08. Jay Chou (ft Du Guo Zhang) - Zhou Da Xia (OST Kungfu Dunk)
09. Plain White T's - Hey There Delilah
10. Light House Family - Postcard From Heaven
11. Mariah Carey - Touch My Body
12. Emmy Rossum - Slow Me Down

Miley Cyrus sounds a lot like Avril Lavigne, but maybe it's just me. Hehehehe. It's okay, I still like her song. Oh yes, ada yang punya Panic at a Disco - Nine in The Morning versi normal ngga? Yang gue punya tu versi live-nya, which is lousy. Don't think the artist bisa nyanyi live. And also OST Kungfu Dunk yang judulnya Mi Mi Hua Yuan (by Jay Chou) yang normal juga? Soalnya yang gue punya tu ada suara adegan filmnya, which is sucks.
Anywaaaay, baru-baru ini gue belanja buku lucu, judulnya Twilight by Stephenie Meyers. It turned out that eventhough it's a translated book (yang kadang terjemahan Indonesianya bikin ilfeel), the book came out surprisingly good. Maybe better in English. Yah but who cares?
Okay, the actual thrilling part is... IT'S A DAMN SERIES!!!
Yipeee!!! *squeaking in joy* Sudah lama gue pengen ngoleksi fun-reading-material lagi, dan sejak I bought the trilogy Bartimaeus by Jonathan Stroud, I practically loosing touch in buying novels.
Okay, Twilight is about 17 yrs old girl (btw, it won as the best book at sumtin) Isabella Swan who moved out to some small city and met interesting friends and neighbours. And one of them turned out to be the cold-blooded kind. Cold-blooded as in a vampire thingy. And cute. And cool. And gorgeous. Okay, I'm such a looser for pretty faces =D Or somewhat describes.
Anyway, the story is fun and light, and I actually enjoyed it. Tiap malam dibaca 3 bab dan ngga terasa dah mo habis aja T___T Jadi bayangkan how thrilled I was when I saw in Google kalo Twilight adalah series. Alleluia!

Becoming Jane

Becoming Jane, a tremendous literate English movie about the famous author, Jane Austen, is indeed a very nice movie. Kind of brought me the same reminiscence like when I was watching The Notebook. The same undying love, uncontrollable yet unbearable passion among the couple in love. Sigh. Its plot flows slowly, sweetly and in the same time make my heart gasp for air (or rather, blood).
Significantly changing my mood, I tell you. I mean, you can tell from the way I was writing this post. There's this whole weird aura about England (specifically Hampshire and London) surroundings in the past and it really affected my hearing ability especially because now I'm hearing myself reread this post in a loud foolish British accent.
The line in the movie is gorgeous, very hard to understand for a poor fellow like me, the girl who had only 500 in her TOEFL and God-knows-what in her IELTS score. Mein Gott, tu vocabulary bikin merinding, saking horornya bisa bikin gue introspeksi terhadap kemampuan bahasa Inggris gue yang ternyata semakin parah .___.
My favourite quote:
Weasley: Sometimes an affection is a shy flower that takes times to blossom
Lord LeFroy: It is in my consideration that irony is an insult with a smiling face
Jane Austen: No, irony is the bringing together of contradictory truths to make out of the contradiction of a new truth with a laugh of a smile, and I confess that a truth must come with one or the other, or I account it as false and a denial of the very nature of humanity itself
What a damn long interpretation of an 'irony', don't you think? I smile widely upon hearing her definition and seeing the expression of all people at the table (of the scene, 'fcourse).
The next good thing about this movie is (predictably) the lead actors and actresses. Namely James McAvoy (whom formerly known as Mr Tumnus of Narnia for me) and Anne Hathaway (the classic beauty). They're both create the perfect spark. The chemistry is there, I'm telling you. They teased, they kissed, they exchanged insults, it's all there.
And of course, Mr James McAvoy is a slimy handsome fellow with a perfect face proportion especially when you look at him from both side, right and left. This guy came up in my IMDB search list couple of weeks ago because I was planning on watching his movie 'Atonement' (which I still didn't have the time to do it, is it good?). Turned out that he's an old player, Mr Tumnus. Yay, padahal waktu jadi Mr Tumnus di Narnia, all I can think about is, "Apa gantengnya ni orang? Tampang kambing begini?" while my friends keep whining about the cuteness (and apparently the glorious) of James McAvoy.

Project Runway

Have you guys ever watched Project Runway? Well, I love this show, it's about the competition among designers and all its drama. In season 4, I set my eyes upon this one guy, named Christian Siriano (21 yrs old). It's not (actually) because of the way he look (like the reason I always had) but more to his design skills. I'm telling you guys, this boy is a whack. He can sew so freakin fast he's always almost finished in day One of every challenge. Another thing about Christian that I really loved is his personality and his
attitude. He's funny, he's witty, he's on the edge. He's totally my favourite, I'd freaked out every time he's at the bottom two. Damn it, he's talented you lousy judges!! Not to mention that he's sorta cute =P
And well well well... (after several clicking and typing in the google) you know what??? He IS the winner of that season!!! Aaaargh, spoiled wikipedia... but it's okay, I'm thrilled, I'm excited, I'm HAPPY!!!! He might be the next big item, I love him a lot. I'm thinking into buying one of his collection but hullo, it gotta be so freakin expensive T__T Huhuhuhuhu... Please check out his collection at http://www.christianvsiriano.com/
Cute cute cute...
Love it love it love it love it love it...
Ah, Project Runway always gives me this kind of entertaining warm breeze, you know, the one that could put me in this exciting-mood-of-watching-and-watching-again. Hehehehehehe...
Di season 3 yang lalu I set my eyes upon one talented designer named Keith Michael, but too bad he got disqualified. But then I chose another one named Jeffrey Sebelia (who also turned out to be the season wineer, yipee!!!) After a second thought, I did choose designers with troubling behaviour. Keith Michael tend to be an arrogant, cocky, need-to-be-slap kinda guy but I personally love his design. And speaking of Jeffrey, hell just look at his style. Tattoo all around the body, asymmetrical hairstyle, cut and loose clothing, but in the end he manage to bring out the real romantic guy he really is. I kinda got sad everytime he deserve to win a challenge but ended up in the runner up place. It's like, "Goddamnit judges!! Where the heck did you put your eyes and your brain??"
Ada juga Uli Herzner, woman kelahiran Jerman yang ciri khas designnya tu berasa banget, pretty dresses that has prints, flowing, layering, smooth and silky. Nice, collectionnya dia itu yang paling ready-to-wear secara simple banget tapi pretty and elegant. Sigh. Ni designer jago (I mean like, JAGO) milih bahan dasar kaen yang bermotif. Semua yang dia pilih turn out to be not-stupid, not-crazy but gorgeous..
Another thing about Project Runway, it made me wanna have my own personal and exclusive clothing designer. For me. For myself. It gotta be fun, after seeing all those models/clients got measured up and asked what kinda dress/cloth they wanna wear, it felt.. tremendous. Yes and it will also felt pricey, I know. But it's so cool having your own unique cloth you know no one will ever have it (or if they did have it, there must be only several of those lucky bastards).
Hahahaha, lumayan sekedar cuci mata dan ngeliatin model baju yang dibuat, ada sih satu-dua yang bikin gue mupeng, but I haven't look the exact detail (read: pictures) on the net about that piece I want. Ntar de gue cari. Rada lucu-lucu bajunya euy. Setiap kali mereka
belanja kain ke Mood, I was like, "Aaaa, I wanna be like them, choosing materials and colors and buttons..." Fun and nyenengin ngeliatin material kain yang dipilih, mulai dari polos sampe print, dari cotton biasa sampe silk and leather, dan seterusnya dan seterusnya... wooohooo.. seruu..
