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.

D.R.E.A.M

Damn, I envy one of my clients. He’s only 24 yet he already became somewhat in Finance Department within one of the well-known logistic companies in the world. Whoa… he’s so damn cool, I mean he even looked like he enjoyed his position, wearing no suit whatsoever, he’s comfortable with his style (which is so damn casual) and he’s happy. After he told me his age with playful tone, “Seriously, I got to be younger than you, so please don’t call me Sir, I’m only 24”, heck! I’m genuinely surprised. My colleague told me he must be one of those who graduate from the Management Training program and successfully having the vast knowledge of Finance Department. Crazy, I want to be like him. Maybe it’s mainly because I long for a casual working environment (but ‘fcourse with willing-to-die-for kind of salary) and yet I gain more knowledge aside from things that I already know, like finance area but minus the headachy calculation. Is it possible, ladies and gentleman?

Anyway, this time is pretty much the only time I really envy my client. Never in my life have I envied my client’s job or his office or even their bathroom. For your information, I took it very seriously when it comes to bathroom area. So far, mine is the best, I. Maybe not the freaking trendiest (like the automatically water pouring water tap when you past you hand beneath it, or maybe equipped with auto-dry toilet seat, now that would be cool) but it is most definitely the cleanest, coziest and most unique with its waste tissue being put into the toilet itself and not into trash bin. So cute. Never seen it before. And another bonus point is the cool elevator and lobby room. Hahahaha, I’m so into my elevator and lobby room. They can escalate your self value incase you need to hold a meeting with somebody. Ask anyone who ever been in my office. Too bad the salary is not that good. I mean, it’s good but not that good. You feel me?

Hmm, what was it that I need to say, eh? Oh yeah, it’s dreaming time. I have never seriously considering the idea of having my own business in the future time (not until I am settled and have logical amount of money)… at least, at first. But now, having to think about it over and over, I really-really dig the idea of having my own furniture shop. Yeah, that would be nice. I love reading the interior design magazines and astounded by their wide capacity of styles. I would fill my shop with affordable, practical yet personal designed stuff, with colorful items and bright theme. The design of my own shop will be decided by me and a bunch of trusted crew of mine. And then, I will collaborate with numbers of local carpenters or artisan for providing my items at reasonable price. Hence, I and the local industry will prosper altogether. Yay!

The alternative is, obviously, having my own clothing line, or maybe my own clothing store. As others always do, I will sell anything that suit my taste and my colleague’s taste (and that would mean the collection will be essentially black or solid dark color) and accessories that is simple yet look adorable. Since I don’t have the gift of fashion sketching, I will surely work together with designers who can satisfy my need (err). I am not going to working solo; instead I will be having partnership with some others who share the same taste or maybe the extension of my taste. Aw, cute. Shoes, boots, coats, army jackets, hooded jackets, black mini dress, blazers, Korean beanies, socks, hand warmer, headband, necklace and bangles will be among my things. Can’t wait for it to happen *excited*.

Gory

Ooookay..

So couple of weekends ago I managed to watch two thriller movies. The Last House on The Left and Drag Me To Hell.

The Last House on The Left

Ooh, I was so excited about this movie ever since I saw its trailer back when I was a child *halah* It is merely a classic horror movie, only this time the blood spilled not from the victim but from the evil doer. Yay!

It's about one family taking avenge after some criminals raped and shot their daughter. The mom and dad in this movie was so freaking cool, I could barely take my eyes on them since the very start till the very end. Amusing, so many blood spilled it almost filled up my hunger upon this sort of movies. Satisfying! Great job.. It even got a very nice cliche touch at the ending. Wow. From hammer in the head to the shot in one eye, they were all done very well in this movie. Nice special effect, I figure that covered the minimum casts in the movie. Dude, there are only 10 person playing in this one. So cost effective.

Drag Me To Hell

Sampah.

Hurray

There are particularly two movies that I am currently eyeing. First, the infamous best-seller-book, Eat Pray Love and secondly, Valentine's Day. Why?

Here's the reason why, for the first movie, I read the book and I simply love it (except for the last part where she wrote about gold-digging Balinese woman who seemed very ungrateful and greedy, but she blame it on the culture, bleh!). I like the honest writing style of hers and her sense of moronic humour. She refers to Elizabeth Gilbert, the writer.

And then, all of those are added with the fact that her character is going to be played by none other than Julia Roberts. Damn lucky woman. Who would've thought your own-character will be played by someone as famous as Mrs. Roberts?

Not only that, character 'Felipe' - the man she met in Bali, who lived there for over than 5 years - will be played by Javier Bardem. Hellooo? That sexy guy is actually going to visit my country, dude! *grinning*

Anyway, aside from the fact that I didn't buy the slightest chance that a character as sexy as Bardem living in Bali over than 5 years but still unnoticed and available, I really dig this movie. Hopefully it turned out well. *finger crossed*

Second movie. Yesterday I was told by my friend that there will be a new movie whose casted by so many infamous actors/actresses/artis named Julia Roberts (again), Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper (He's Just Not That Into You), Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Jamie Foxx, the cutie Topher Grace (Win a Date with Tad Hamilton), the McDreamy  Patrick Dempsey, the McSteamy Eric Dane, Queen Latifah, Emma Roberts (Nancy Drew), and artist such as Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas.

Heck, its genre surely gotta be drama, since the producer might not have enought budget left to afford special effect for any other genre, ain't it so?

Yes, just hearing about the cast is enuff to make me wait patiently here, surrounded by client's documents and stuff, yearning for car and own apartment.

Excuses

/That/ is a title of one of my favorite Korean band, Epik High. Okay, okay, I know some of you might die bored hearing this Korean stuff, but seriously, Epik High is worth listen to. They do creative work in mix-n-matching ballad and hip-hop rap things. Crazily entertaining.

The band consist of three person, Tablo, Mithra and DJ Tukutz, but mainly I /adore/ Tablo. Dunno why but I got this fetish towards smart guy, or even a guy that /looked/ smart =P Tablo graduated from Stanford University majoring in English Literature, hence the yummy sound of the song.

The lyric is particularly I love.

Who's to blame.
No remedy to cure this pain.

No remedy to cure this pain.
Cuz I believe there's nothing there for me.

Education is killing my religion.

Intuition is killing my religion.
My religion is killing your religion. My
religion, your religion.


[Myk's Verse]

Lungs blackened from this filth that I'm breathing.
Polluted phrases are the kill of the season.
My ears bleed and in turn I speak treasons,

weaving through a system that dubs realists as heathens.

Like the cigarettes I'm 'chained' to,
wicked words can be the devil in
disguise
that thrive off of maiming you.

But who's blaming who?

Never are we the ones.

We point the finger at the skies and the chosen 'son'.

All my senses are killing my innocence.
Cruel inventions are killing my innocence.
No innocence is killing your innocence.
My innocence, your innocence.


[Tablo's Verse]

Blame it on terror.
Computer error.

The east and west coast and the post-consumer era.

The mayor, the president. The air, the elements.

Whatever's relevant but never look in to your mirror.
What you want, what you need is to be blameless.

Don't blame the DJ, it's the playlist.
Cause blame is a slutty word.

Ex-planation, ex-ecution, ex-cuse share the same 'ex'.


[Mithra's Verse]

You don't wanna know the sinner.

You don't wanna know the killer.
Because it's you.


Television is stalling evolution.

Medication is stalling evolution.
Evolution is stalling revolution.
Evolution, revolution.


Collaboration, the start of revolution.
My decision, the start of revolution.

Revolution, the start of evolution.
Revolution, evolution.


Blame yourself.
