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.

Prison Break (the next episode)

There's some things that once you got a hold of it, you just can't let it go. You'll just keep turning back and hang on to it. Like me, for example. I'll never get tired of watching new old series, and eventhough it kept me up and down the hills at times, but eventually I'll still continue watching them and voila, the very same story caught my interest once again.

Yah, Prison Break for example. This series had long gone from its first season, and right now, starting their fourth one and I'm STILL interested in the plot. Hahahaha. Maybe you thought of me as a bit of megalomaniac addict to Michael Scofield, but I don't think so.

Michael Scofield is chubbier now, compared to the first season (in which everytime you set your eyes upon him, you goes like "Aaargh, kill me, he's adorable.") So, no, his looks is not something I chase anymore, cause right now I'm looking at Sara Tancredi. Hehehehe, big spoiler, yes?

Despite the ridiculous plot which turned more and more like Indonesian electronic cinema, I think in this season Prison Break has more important (if not confusing) missions to solve. Yah, we'll see lah.

Anyhow, kalo lu nonton dan ngikutin Prison Break dari season satu, laju plot-nya dari season tiga ke season empat koq aga-aga gmana gtu yah. Di season satu Scofield planned to get his brother out of Fox River penitentiary gara-gara dituduh ngebunuh entah siapa yang ada hubungannya ama capres US. Udah gtu di season dua, Scofield berhasil kabur tapi jadi fugitive. Dia 'kenalan' ma agen polisi jenius namanya Mahone. Di season tiga, Scofield ketangkep lagi di penjara Sona di Panama yang konon once you get in, you'll never get out. Dia sengaja dimasukin ke penjara Sona itu buat ngeluarin seorang pria ngga jelas yang kerja buat The Company. Gilanya, di Sona ini, yang ketangkep is not just Scofield tapi sekalian si agen jenius Mahone itu. Jadi kalo dipikir-pikir, mau lo jadi insinyur, agen polisi, kepala penjara, pembunuh pedofil, maling henpon, apa kek, sekalinya lo maen di Prison Break, ujung-ujungnya pasti masuk penjara juga.

Nah di season empat ini, Scofield kan berhasil kabur dari Sona, si tempat angker itu. Eeeh, baru di episode satu tiba-tiba dibilang kalo tiga hari yang lalu Sona being burned down due to riot held by the prisoner. Intinya tahanan-tahanannya pada kabur gitu aja. Anjrit, Scofield aja butuh satu season buat kabur itu juga dah empot-empotan mikirinnya, ini tahanan-tahanan yang laen koq gampang amat. Bah, tau gitu bikin kekacauan aja dari dulu, bos!

Ini kayanya emang sengaja biar Scofield reunited with his old buddies from prison(s). Kocak juga kalo dipikir-pikir. Scofield tu kan dulu kerjanya kantoran, pake jas, insinyur cerdas bertampang clean, eh sekarang gaulannya orang-orang napi, dong.

Yang paling mirip sinetron adalah tokoh Sara Tancredi. Perannya pas di season satu tu sweet banget de, jadi dokter tahanan di Fox River, tempat Scofield ditahan. Trus suka ma Scofield, trus ikutan rencana kabur dari penjara, trus terpisah gara-gara Scofield dikejar-kejar polisi, trus ketemu lagi pas dah mau ending season dua. Trus pas Scofield dipenjara di Sona, Sara jadi sandera (along with LJ) buat nego ama Scofield biar mau disuruh ngeluarin si pria ngga jelas yang kerja buat The Company ituh. Trus during season tiga, Sara Tancredi dipenggal dong palanya gara-gara Michael Scofield berulah. Matilah kawan kita, I shocked, Scofield shocked, everybody shocked.

Eh di season empat tiba-tiba dibilang kalo itu semua palsu, bohong, tipu-tipu. Bukti penggalan kepala hanyalah kepala cewe laen yang diambil dari ruang mayat yang mirip ma Sara. Saranya sendiri ternyata berhasil kabur pas disandera. Jreng jreng.

A bit like telenovela kan? Hehehehe. Quotenya si Lincoln sih lucu, "Yeah it was dark. But if you're asking me if I picked up the head to check if it was Sara, no, Michael, I didn't do that."

However, all and all, I'm happy Sara's still alive, cause this movie is lack of women. It's all men and men. Besides, Sara and Michael is cute together. Hihihihi.

Oh and by the way, I won something recently. A poster competition. Yay. But I thought maybe the jury had low level of taste if I could win such contest.

Re: Jay jay

Weird day

Yesterday I went home only to find a bunch of homeless people sitting on my floor and playing cards. Wow, a game I barely played anymore. With that in mind, I mingled immediately and start playing like crazy. It's fun, it's awesome, it's brutal, it's SEVEN SCOPE!!

We played for like centuries, cursing and singing like moron =D, being defensive and offensive as much as we could muster, and eventually it's already 3 a.m in the morning. Yaiks. I got meeting and client document processing tommorow morning! Aaah, who cares! =D

Played and played like there's no tommorow, huhuhu, and then my roommate prepared their early breakfast (tsk tsk, that's like the earliest breakfast I've ever seen, hehehe). She cooked some meal then join us again after few brutal and bloody losses she suffered. Looked like she didn't want to be humiliated just like that, ladies and gentleman. That's why we changed the pace and the game into CAPSA!

I sucks at capsa, I gotta tell you. I have no sense of strategy whatsoever whilst playing my card. Shame on me, dude! Even the two newbies who just recently learnt how to play could beat me at once. Damn! That showed how terribIy dumb I played =D Hihihi, I miss playing TRUF, especially PAIRING TRUF, the telepathy, the intuition, the sixth sense, the eye contact, it's all ART in there, my fellow.

Times when my campus hasn't banned that particular game was an amazing moment. I miss those..

Anyway, being tired from lack of sleep somehow left me in a very weird aura this morning. I showered and prepared to go to my office then sitting quietly under a tree, waiting for the bus to pick me up.

The bus showed up late, as usual, but in the middle of that waiting moment, I was 'distracted' by uneventful event. (What is the meaning of uneventful anyway?).

There's some old man, saying that he's trying to go to St. Bogor by train from 4 a.m this morning and still in need for additional cash. Well, well, well.. unfortunately I ain't Tommy. Cause if I were Tommy, I guessed I already gave the old man all money I got and even showed him the way to go to St. Pondok Cina (no pun intended to you, friend =P)

Anyway, seeing him reminded me of a woman I met the day before. She told me that she's in great hurry to RSCM but also in desperate need to seek for additional money to buy 'infus' (what's the English word?). She asked for 27.000 IDR, but unlucky for her, she happened to ask me when I'm in my lowest financial condition level EVER. Hahahahaha. I said no (duh!) and explained that I got no money left on me except for my bus fare.

Hm, it looks like the trend for new alternative way to has begin already during this fasting month, yes? Honestly I did not thought of anything until the woman said something like, "Begini ya, Nak. Ibu ngga ada niat jahat." Buset, jadi malah berasa horor pas denger dia ngomong gtu. Kurang cerdas ya cara persuasinya.

ANYWAY.. aside from the old man, there's another (actually there's two) old women who kindly made conversation with me whilst waiting for the bus. This is weird, because I'm not used to little chat with stranger, either cause of my mood or maybe my look. Hehehehe. After little chit chat, one of the old woman offered me Oriflame new catalog. Waw! I didn't even ask! Coolness! You know why I'm happy? It's because I happened to look for that catalog to browse for new items. Hehehe, jiwa materialistis. Yah, ternyata si ibu ini keluarga yang punya Puri Marsini, ckckck, dan dia kebetulan pengen ke Otista. Doenk gtu gue pas dia nanya naik apaan. Bah, gue kan buta jalan.

Yah, that's how my weird day began, and who knows, maybe there's still more waiting ahead. Semangat!
