The Bigger Person Loses.

And gives up.

The title might sound a little familiar, somehow sounds like the popular TV show that we all know and love, but no, it's not the kind of topic I'm about to bring up!
You probably don't really get the idea that I'm about to put across, so let me explain how it works :)

Remember that-- in any argument you're being involved in, or any decision you're about to take, keep in mind that there is always someone; somewhere, who disagrees. That's why there's always two sides in everything, there's pros & cons, there's left & right, there's north & south, there's Romeo & Juliet... Wait, what are we talking about again? Oh, right, people disagreeing. Right.
Maybe Romeo & Juliet don't really have anything to do with it. Before I start to wander off this topic & forget what I really want to write, I better get back to the topic ;)

No matter how right or correct you think the path you're taking is, there's always someone who criticize you, and that's okay, people always have different opinions, I'm not saying that you have to agree to anything people say, but what matters is how you handle the disagreement being held against you. If someone disagrees but you think that person's incorrect, walk away, don't let 'em get into you, 'cause in life there's always going to be people right in your face trying to get the best of you, don't, I repeat-- DO NOT let that happen to you. Trust me, when you try your best to always please people by changing standards or by chickening out, or by not standing up for what you really believe in, it will eat you up alive! You'll always be unsatisfied, and that's not even the worst part! The fact is, if you always listen to what people want you to do or how you should become, you'll never get the chance to be who you want to be! But consider the comments first, if it's good feedback that you might need to make you a better person, receive it with an open mind :)

The truth is the bigger person loses and give up his right to be angry when someone disagrees, the bigger person knows better than losing his temper for someone who gets in his face. So, really, nice guys don't finish last. Nice guys finish before the race even started :)

"Keep on keeping on"

Someone said that to me and it's been popping out of my head, being a constant reminder for my brain, guess it has been my conscious for the past, say-- two or three weeks? Yes, I have been hanging on a thread lately, could have slip and fall in a split of a second. But, I have to admit, I feel like I'm the luckiest person alive, to be given different & wonderful opportunities :) I know it makes me grow just a little bit faster than most teenagers, but it's alright to know a little too much than a little less than others, right? :)

And since it's the month of giving, I want to give credits to my older brother who has always been there for me, I have to admit that I'm forever grateful that I'm not an only child, and having the person who has been the one who's both a crack in the head and pain in my ass (I mean it in the most positive way possible ;) ) . I'm thankful that he's one of the few people who believed in my dreams, who encouraged me and know my every struggle. So if there's any guy in my future, he'd be my third boyfriend, 'cause my first is Dad, and the second is my brother! (and I say that in the least icky yucky way!!) I know we fight a lot and there are times where I feel like I wanna strangle him in the neck or push him over a cliff or something, but as much as I hate to admit this, I love my brother :) We've waaay past the fighting over "who's getting the last piece of snack" or "who's sitting where in the car" because we grew up together and we know each other so well now that we're not even going to make an effort to even fight over small stuffs :D One of the many reasons why I'm close to my brother is that our age difference is not that far, so we have the same taste in movies, and music, and all those stuffs :) I tell my brother everrrything. Recently I even made a trivia about myself when I was bored and he got the perfect score, it's pretty creepy, I know, but I'm thankful that he knows me so well :p He even gets so nosy about guys that I like or vice versa, I get to 'select' who gets to be his girlfriend :p Although most of the girls that he like are also my friends, he said it's one of the many benefits of having a younger sister :p

Oh well I better stop before any of you people start to leave and grab yourselves a bucket to puke :) I'm outie :)

Keep the faith

LAST.

I may not be crowned 'best blogger of the year' because of my lack of updates, but trust me, I have a very VERY good reason (or should I say 'excuse' *cough cough*) for it. Just giving a quickie update here :) I haven't opened all my web stuffs in a while and it's always surprising to see the 'feedback' some people gave me. Like saying the F word on my previous post, regarding the copycat thing I wrote. The thing is, IF that isn't true, then why be mad about it, right? And keep it PG-13 please. Say your curses some place else ;)

So many new and upcoming movies on my list! But I don't have time to go to the movies, so saaad :( And it's December already! It's sooooo friggin ridiculous! And in a very happy tone, that is :) I'm so looking forward for these few weeks ahead :) Ahhh, miracles on Christmas, what could be better, right? :)

And I'm considering the many options to change my look. Since I'll be turning 18 next year I'm thinking about getting a little extreme and maybe push the envelope a little bit. What do you think? ;) That is all for now, I'm outie :)

Jajak Jakarta

There's never a dull moment with these two :)

Yup, after a great dinner with my Elementary buddies from Gandhi, I slept over at my cousin--Titin--'s place and just like any sleepovers we had, it was filled with snacks, Facebook-profile-talks, and lack of sleep! We slept at 4 in the morning and because we planned to go out the following morning and had to pick up Cien-cien, we woke up at 10 and left at 11! So, that's not too bad, right? :p Then, we went to explore the great city of Jakarta! Titin drove to Sunter to pick up Maria, or better known as Cien-cien, and went to a noodle stall just around the corner near Cien-cien's house for a yummy breakfast :)

Since I have to go back home early, we planned to go home at about 4 o'clock and 'cause there's tons of places we had in mind that we want to go to, we scheduled the exact in-and-out timing for each mall! :p First stop: GRAND INDONESIA!!! :)

Titin is getting very good at driving, she's even able to take pictures while doing it!
Not a very good example, though ;p
Look! There's a Metro Mini next to Titin!
At Grand Indo's parking lot
Just arrived at Grand Indo and I think not taking pictures in the toilet would be a crime ;)
On the escalator! Doesn't this picture looks sorta--kinda-- like we're in an airport? Bahaah!
Again with the airport-like background!

One thing about Grand Indonesia that I love most is its 'Alun-Alun Indonesia,' where they sell all these Indonesian goods from all over the country and what I love about it is its 'traditional vibe' that I get from the very first step I take into Alun-Alun Indonesia ;) And here's some of the goodies we found ;)

Wayang! It's this puppet-like thing that apparently, Indonesians are very good at!
I have to tell you this, we sucked! We're so bad at it, it's not as easy as it looks :p
Look at this picture, the wayang looks gay, doesn't it?! Maybe ours is not wayang, the more proper term is 'GAY-ang.'
HAHA :p
Look how small that thing is! It even has this mini-sized fan that satay vendors use to make the satay :) And what's a good satay without some kecap manis, right ;)

Too bad Alun-Alun Indonesia holds a pretty high standard when it comes to labeling the price! But the quality is worth the price I suppose. So I'm going to make some Euro or Pounds or Dollar before going back to Jakarta and buy all those stuffs that caught my eye at Alun-Alun Indonesia ;) After Alun-Alun Indonesia, we went to see this Lego exhibition just next to Alun-Alun Indonesia. Lego always amazes me. I'm one of those Lego fans, but all I did was make a shapeless car, or a shapeless house. Come to think of it, I never really did make anything out of Lego. But they! They did an amazing job with Lego! Look at this Octopus :)

And those big blue eyes! Isn't it just the most adorable thing you've ever seen in the (Lego) world??? :)

We planned to go out of Grand Indonesia at 1 p.m, and we reached the exit of Grand Indonesia at exactly 1 p.m! We were on time ;) And after a while, we kinda still have no idea on where to go next, but we went to Plaza Semanggi next and stroll around for a while then we headed to the Rooftop afterwards and took these cute pictures ;) So basically we were inspired by all the 'artsy' pictures that were displayed in Grand Indonesia. There's this exhibition of cool slash candid-like slash spontaneous pictures, and we decided to expand the idea and buy M&M-like candy and took pictures! :) It's almost like biscuits, though, it's not really candy, because it's much crunchier and yummy-er ;) We figured the color of the biscuits would look better in pictures rather than M&M's because these biscuits have more 'shocking' colors, and having said that, we realized that the food coloring was quite a lot, so that's pretty scary :p All in all, the pictures look great ;)

Titin looking cute ;)
Cien-cien looks preeeeetty :) Don't you agree? ;)
You can't really see, but there's biscuits in my mouth, but that didn't quite work out :p
Rooftop! :)

And since we had too much fun taking pictures and chit-chatting while having some (so-called) sushi, before we know it, it's 4 in the afternoon so we decided to head back.

When we're stopping on a red light, we realized that we almost ran out of gas! (Notice that the red light on the bottom is on!) But since it was a Sunday and there's no traffic jam, we made it to Kemayoran to get some gas :) Then we dropped Cien-cien off, and we went back home! :)

That is all for the 'adventurous' trip I had with Titin and Cien-cien ;)
It was pretty tiring, but had great fun :D
Keep me posted, everyyyoneeeee :D

HALLOWEE(ke)N(d)!

YUP!!!

It's the weekends!! Weeks after weeks have passed and I'm getting just ever so pumped and excited :) We have officially reached the midst of November, and before we know it, we'd be celebrating Christmas and New Year's!! :) 

Speaking of celebrations, I know how Indonesia doesn't celebrate Halloween at all, unlike the western culture who takes Halloween as serious as their own Easter or Independence Day--meaning, there's always traditions to live up to. Trick or treating, costume-wearing, pumpkin-carving, and all of those things they do every year :) 

Maria, one of my best friends, was born on this 'spooky' day ;) So we had to celebrate her birthday around Halloween and it was great fun :) Located at Puro, I met some of my old friends I haven't seen in ages. Felt great, like this little unplanned reunion :D Too bad Bella is in L.A or the guest list would've been perfect. Took tons of pictures but I'll just post a few :)
Maria, the beautiful birthday girl :)

Can't believe she turned 18!! She's in the same class as I am, but she's older by a year :) There's this ginormous cake that was super duper cute, and which represents her; an amazing, talented young designer. There's this measuring tape, scissors, et cetera et cetera :) Told her I am so gonna wear a dress made by her on a red carpet event :) So, let's hope for it, fingers crossed!!! :D 

First surprise of the night: Huge vase of roses from... Ehmmm ;p
Ladies :)
Left to Right: Maria, Me, Nathalie, Katy, Tenny
REUNION! WHOOP :D
Nath and Nad
Love her :)
The food was (Y)(Y)(Y)
I'm feeding the bday girl :)
Aww yeay :)
The Gandhi bunch! Bahaah :) How I miss Elementary times :D
Missing Bella :(
The Gandhi bunch and the huuuuuge cake :)

The dinner started at 7 and ended at about 11, and there's this Halloween party being thrown and there's tons of people that dressed up as freaks. I've always thought Indonesia has the scariest ghosts and all the western ghosts aren't really that scary, so yeah, they were pretty scary. So, props to Indonesia for having the scariest ghosts! Whoohooooo :)
Karen and Maria with the scary bloody midget :S
This guy seriously scared the crap out of me!!
With the headless bride. Doesn't it make you wonder how the wedding ended?
...just kidding ;) 

That is all for my updates :) 
Blog y'all later :) 
Have tons of blogs to post yet still haven't found the time to just sit around and type!! Blaargh...

See your enemy in the eyes and say, "Bless you."

Yeah, sure, saying it in a theory is much easier than to do it in real life. I'm just like any ordinary person, I want to be treated right, I can be pretty upset when someone's treating me like crap when you know you don't deserve to, when deep down you know that's not how they're suppose to treat you, because you don't treat them the way they treat you. 


AAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!


Thank God it's Sunday!!! I don't get why people hate Mondays, because I always look forward to Mondays because I think of it as the beginning of a new week, so I can start new and fresh :) And since I'm getting closer to what I've been looking forward to, I actually don't have any other stuffs to worry or complain about because behind all these things that happened, there are actually good things falling into place... Finally :) 


I'm not going to act all fake or angelic and show you just all the good things that I've learned through stuffs that happened to me, but let me tell you that there are times I feel like I've had enough and just want to punch someone in the face or poke someone with a stick!!! As savage or cruel as it may sound, it has never happened (and neither will it ever happen, hopefully ;p), so no need to worry :) There are just some mind games being played in this itty bitty head, and some inner demons whispering in my mind saying things I know I shouldn't be doing, but I would be lying if I say that it didn't cross my mind or that I didn't have the 'desire' to go get a payback, but I realized that's not the person I am, or ever was. Taking the high road is never easy, but I've always been the person who do so, and will continue doing so. I've 'tried' being a mean person, and it actually hurt no one but myself, 'cause I was lying to myself and realized that that's not person I have grown up becoming, and by being mean didn't make me feel any better, I actually felt like I was the same person that was being mean to me, and that made me felt pretty darn crappy :S


Don't give praises or think that I do this for compliments, I just never had the heart to actually meet a person and slap him/her in the face to actually give a 'lesson' learned. I'm the 'swept-it-in-a-rug' kind of person. So yeah, there might be tons of dust bunnies under the rug, but I'd vacuum it as soon as it's needed to be done. I have my own advantages for being a pretty forgetful person (my brother even call me Dori-- from Finding Nemo 'Dori'), but once I remember things, it's insanely unstoppable. Well, God, this is my fight, but I know You're in the battle doing it for me, I'm giving up all my rights for revenge, I know someday You'll do it for me. Not that I'd wish anything bad to happen to people who are mean to me, it's just-- what goes around, comes around, you know??? 

It's been clinically proven. Ha. 




KEEP THE FAITH

...someday it'd all be worth it!

Black and white, wrong and right.

I guess you have to meet the wrong people to be thankful when you meet the right ones. I don't know why, but these days I just feel like God has 'permitted' me to meet all the people I pray every night not to let me meet. Maybe it's because I'm being tested, but I feel like I've went waaay beyond my limits, I feel it's almost impossible to deal with those people. And the way I see it, I think it's best to keep it all to myself. 


If there is any kind of way to measure my stress level, it's by what I eat when I'm not even hungry. And yes, it was pretty intense so I had a bunch of Cadbury Flakes. Other than it was sooooo good, I just thought about too much stuffs yesterday, so I had to eat something! (That was a lame excuse for eating chocolate) But yeah, I promised myself that I would burn all those calories (and thoughts) I had yesterday, and thank God, I did ;)

Aaahhhhh :)


KEEP THE FAITH ;)

Die, Goliath, DIEEE!

Should stop worrying.

Should stop letting unimportant people get into my brain. 
Should let go.
Should not think about unnecessary opinions.
Should give myself a break.
Should probably show how I truly feel.
Should keep believing.

An equal treatment ;)

I'm astounded by how people can treat others with no respect. I mean, haven't they ever heard of "Treat others the way you want to be treated"? This explosion of emotions is not coming out of no where, I'm mad because of a reasonable 'excuse.' I just dislike people who treat their maids with no respect. I know it so well how Indonesia has abundant storage of labor, but that's not something you should take for granted. Just because you're blessed with great wealth, that doesn't give you the power to treat people however you'd like. 



Ya mungkin mereka suka agak lemot, ato bisa buat salah, tapi ya, yaudah, mereka juga gak sempurna, you have to always keep that in mind! Malah seharusnya lu merasa thankful kalo punya maid(s) yang mau kerja buat lo. They might not be the smartest people in the world, and maybe it takes you extra patience to get them to work properly; well, let me put it this way, if they're scholars, they wouldn't be working for you, now, would they? 


So, try treating them with the right amount of respect. Just because they receive salary from you out of the tasks they do around the house for you, that doesn't mean they're your 'slave' and make you their 'master.' If you're treating them with the right attitude, I believe that they'll feel 'homey,' which will result to motivate them to work even harder :)

Caught dead copying.

Tsk tsk tsk.


This is just one of the many statuses that you copied. I'm just not in the mood to show it all one by one, and also I still don't want to show your identity, so use your second chance wisely. I just don't get why you love to copy even the most unimportant status I can ever think of. It's pretty pathetic how most of your statuses are copied from others, just show how you lack something that is most probably the most important thing out of a person's life-- identity

And to put a mask out of all this! I know that you said on your status how you hate copycats and yet, YOU ARE ONE!

The irony. 

I'm just so tired of all those crap you tried selling to people, 'cause clearly, I'm not buying any :)
That is all.


KEEP THE FAITH!

I’m happy to say that I will be there at the end of the day =)





Some dreams can feel so real. Kadang gua suka lupa kemaren mimpi apa, tapi setiap ada kesempatan kalo inget, gua pasti catet, karena gua gak mau lupa, gua percaya mimpi yang gua dapet itu gak pernah gak ada artinya. Mimpi gua juga suka berasa real banget, melebihi 3D, 4D, 5D, apa lah yang canggih-canggih. Pokoknya real. Kemaren salah satunya :(

I hate having dreams of people that I miss, it makes it so hard to wake up. In my dream, I remembered meeting him at Taman Anggrek, yang menurut gua adalah tempat yang lumayan bersejarah karena kita pertama kali ketemu disana, dan setiap pergi ke T.A pasti seru, makanya gua namain T.A 'ground zero' alias markas pertemuan. I saw him and all I can remember was; before we went our separate ways, he hugged me so tight that I could hear his heartbeat. Gua sedih kalo ingetnya, soalnya he's probably the best guy-friend I ever had. And because of the dream I have yesterday, I woke up thinking I want to look for pictures that I kept in a concealable place. 

Old pictures just haunt me with old memories. We met at probably the weirdest way possible and never in a million years would I thought we would've been friends-- good friends. I'm just imperfect in so many ways, and he saw right through me. I would nag and be the most sensitive person in the whole world, and yet he would patiently talk to me and calm me down.We fight a lot and most of the fights are because of me, correction, gua berasanya all of the fights are because of me. I've made him cry, I hurt him a lot, yet he would still be there for me when I need him most. And though we don't talk much these days, a part of me still thinks I never deserve you, not even as a friend. 

He's the kind of person that loves me for who I am, though he knows me inside and out. Dia udah tau semua tentang gua, and every time we talk or meet, gak perlu ada yang di-jaim-in. Mau betahak ya betahak, kentut ya kentut. (No, we're not that disgusting, I'm just trying to picture how close we were. Well, you know what I mean ;p ) We barely speak these days, but yeah, I remember it all, I remember everything.

:] :] :]

Gatau kenapa suka sama foto cacat ini :D
Sekarang tiap liat Taz g inget dia. Not only 'cause Taz was a pretty wacky & loveable cartoon, but also 'cause I have the exact same shirt which was from him :)
Gak pernah bosen ngasitau dia how good he looks in a tux :)
Apa, centil? :)

Snapshots of him on webcam haha :)
:'(

To the guy I thought I knew, I miss you.

KEEP THE FAITH, PEOPLE :)

Morning urge to blog.

I have no idea what's gotten into me, I feel like I'm a kid that consumed waaay too much sugar, which got me feeling high all the time, but in a good way. So I'm spreading the joy!! :D



I tell myself each and every day that I can do anything I put my heart and mind into, now I am more reinforced by that statement. 


So, as some of you might know, my phone hasn't been functioning as a normal phone's suppose to work *wink wink*, I woke up today feeling pumped, and really just look forward to what's right in front of me! (how I wish I can tell you but I promised myself I wouldn't until it actually happens, 'cause I might jinx it!)
Walopun punya older brother, tapi dia sama sekali gak ngerti utak atik barang-barang elektronik! Dulu aja PC rusak, yang benerin sambil agak kesetrum-kesetrum tu gua, terus toaster di rumah juga gak mau nyala kecuali gua yang nyalain, jadi tiap ada yang mau bakar roti buat makan pagi, gua deh jadi tukang roti bakarnya, but I like being the tukang roti bakar, I like burning things *evil laugh*


...just kidding ;)


Okay, so, the story I want to tell you is this; it started when I ask my Mom where she put my cellphone's original box, and I was trying to fix my phone all by myself, a part of me thinks it was pretty stupid, but that part of me wasn't as big as the other part that told me that I can do it all by myself :) 


Udah ketemu tuh box HP nya. Pas dibuka box-nya, rada jiper juga. Ternyata buku panduannya ada tiga. Tebel-tebel pula. Ahh ribet. Nyesel juga berpindah dari Nokia, perasaan Nokia gak pernah-pernah deh kayak gini. Mulai deh gua baca buku panduannya dengan seksama. Ternyata 2 buku lainnya cuma berisi gambar-gambar, tulisan-tulisan kurang penting, terus alamat toko-toko yang jual perangkatnya worldwide. Lanjutin baca buku panduannya sambil rada komat kamit baca mantra. No, I wasn't aiming for a wizardly act, I was more like praying to God I would be able to fix my phone. Terus akirnya pas liat-liat FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), gua menemukan jawabannya!! Lalu terlintas di pikiran gua, 'Waaah ternyata ada juga kali ya di belahan dunia lain (bukan dunia lain yang berbau mistis, masa iya kunti ato pocong megang HP, nelpon kerabat? Well, maybe janjian ketemu di bawah pohon toge mau reunian. Okay, bad joke. Maksudnya benua lain di sebrang sana.) yang ngalemin kayak gua gini.'
I know, it was pretty stupid to think that there's no one in this world with the same problem, yaa pasti ada lah, se- ribet-ribetnya kasus HP error ya pasti ada penanggulangan atau cara menangani kesalahan teknis macem itu lah ya. Tapi, I give all the glory to God. Kalo gak karena otak gua dikasih pencerahan kayak gini, gua percaya sampe sekarang HP gua masih gak beres. So, thank you, God!! :D 
Intinya adalah, no matter how complicated your problems in life are, there's no excuse such as not being able to handle such things. So, do keep the faith ;)

If I can sum it all up in a word, moral of the day is= 3S.
Set your mind into doing something you think you can't, say a little a prayer, and see it all happen to your favor :) 



Keep the faith 
XOXOX

Gloomy days are over.

Here comes the sun, toodoodoodoo...
Here comes the sun...
And I say it's all right...

Yes!

Although these days I've been feeling like I'm losing hope, I'm starting to gain it back again. The silver lining is starting to show, and although I have been filled with uncertainty, everything seem certain again. I can dream again. That's the most important part. 
The devil would only want you to give in. When you're caught in that circumstance, show 'em that you got the courage to stand up tall. I thought I've had to put down my dreams for the good of my family and other needs, now I know I can dream again. And although the stress I'm holding onto dearly these days is just insane, I almost feel like I couldn't bear it much longer, I know deep down, everything is going to be alright. Oh, yes, it will. Trust me :]

"Change is good"-Paramore

Since I don't consider myself a pro when it comes to Ilmu Pengetahuan Sosial (I prefer World Geography any day), I have to have things such as Twitter to let me know what's what on a daily basis :p Heboh banget pada nge-Twit hari ini Hari Sumpah Pemuda, yang gua tau hari ini film MJ keluar di bioskop for the next 2 weeks (this statement has nothing to do with commercial needs whatsoever). 


I like the fact that Indonesian youth has widely grown in so many different areas, musically, and academically. Have we reached the maximum potential? No, we haven't. Just like how my parents raise me, there's always room for better improvements, so I guess there's still lots to do before we reach a place where we should be satisfied about what we've achieved. 

Hari-hari ini sering banget gua nonton berita dan banyak ngeliput tentang gimana Amerika lagi merosot abis-abisan alias mereka lagi having a downhill process. Tapi gua percaya, America is in good hands (no, Obama, I'm not just talking about you, I was referring to God. But since you're the leader of the country, so I guess that goes to you, too). What I love about America as a liberal country is that it is always open to change, mereka bener-bener gak ada kata 'impossible' dalam kamus negara mereka (please note that I don't mean this literally :p), that's why great leaders, musicians, actors, athletes, banyak yang bisa di achieve di Amerika karena mereka punya kemauan untuk terbuka pada perubahan, yang bisa bikin mereka maju. Martin Luther King, Jr., Oprah, Celine Dion, Michael Jordan, OBAMAAA :) 

But, I have to admit, there's a down side to this, some people take advantage of freedom, but I'm not saying that that can't change! America has gone through so much and I think time will tell if it will survive through any kind of circumstances. 

Yap, gua bakal seneng banget kalo Indo bisa nyontoh dari negara yang melahirkan beberapa makanan favorit gua seperti Ben & Jerry's!! And other revolutionary products, like FROZEN YOGHURT :) Hahahahaha. Gua masih sedikit cape nih. So that's all, I'm outie :] 

KEEP THE FAITH :)

You can dream with your eyes wide open.

Don't you just love it when you see the good guys win? It's so naive how people say that they hate movies with happy endings and that they still expect one to happen anyways. I connect with people who dream more, than with people who have such narrow minds and just live--what according to them is--reality. Where's the fun in that?

Someone asked me a few years ago about what I wanted to do when I grow up. She was so shocked to hear what I had to say and gave me that certain 'look.' She thought it was too pompous and that it would never come true. She asked me why I even had the 'courage to dream' that big.' I answered, "Deep down I know what I can become, and that I have the power to do so. I don't say that I'm capable of doing what I want to do, but God made me capable of what I want to do. I don't believe my past should effect my future, in any possible way. If you already know what you're going to do because the future is set for you, then what part of that is dreaming? If you know that your parents are able to put you to college A, and you say that your dream is to go to college A, I don't believe that is dreaming. Because my definition of dreaming is, you have no idea how you going to end up becoming, and you work your way there, not having the dream made for you. It's you who's suppose to make it happen."

Anywhooo...
I haven't had time opening Facebook and stuffs. I really miss my networking life. But then again I realized there's more to life than my cyberspace life :) I'm thinking about changing my blog name. This one's depressing, don't you think? I found something good, though ;) But I'll tell you in a bit.

Keep the faith
XOXOX

You are so fake you make Barbie look real.

Plastic. That's probably what you're made up of. I have never, in my whole life, saw someone who is half as sad, or as pathetic, as you are. 


You think I don't know, but I do. You might think you can get away, but you can't. I've done such an amazingly HUGE and ENORMOUS favor not to publicize your name anywhere in FaceBook and Twitter, no matter how many people wanted to know, but I did what I wanted to do, not what I have to do. This is my nice way of seeing, back off, stop stalking, get the heck out of my life, and just don't bother getting to know my life, I do not know you, you might think you know me, but you know not a single bit of my life. 

Focus, Nadia, you have a lot of things in your mind already. 
Geez, my appetite went from starving to not even drooling for sushi. 



Keep The Faith ;]

Haters wanna hate.

Haven't had the time to check my blog for some time and so someone had to put the news down for me. So, someone who dislike my posts put a comment on my blog regarding my posts that are made up of mostly English. Well, here I am being completely honest, without any intention of bragging, but it's not my fault that you don't understand a word. And before you TRY commenting with English, be sure that it's with the PROPER GRAMMAR, 'cause here you are commenting on my lack of English skills, and yet yours is not any better. I'm not saying that my posts have no grammatical mistakes, but who are you to say that you're better when the matter of the fact is, you're just simply not. 


Just can't believe there are haters problem to add up to the stalkers problem? As if I need more drama to 'spice up' my life. Well, I guess that's life. There's just always people who want to bring you down or wait for you to mess up. And I would like to thank my best friend who reminded me to hold up my head high, 'cause there are people who'd kill to see you fall.

And I can't believe there are people who stole my quotes, and on top of it, take credit of it from people who commented on 'what I said.' I mean, seriously, come on, it's not like it's some Oprah or Dr. Phil-like sayings. Saying all this, by all means, I have no intention to brag. I just want to say what I feel, 'cause it's getting pretty annoying. Stop putting my life on a microscope. 

"Better improve your english skills before make a story, just use bahasa indonesia"

Pssh. Give me a break. You know what, I choose to 'stay cool' out of this 'hot' situation you are making. It's so not worth the sweat, not even a slight thought. But nowadays it's just irritating. 

Keep the Faith ;)

It's a little too late for sorry's- Mother Nature

Dust storm in Aussie

Flood in the Philippines

Tsunami in Samoa

Earthquake in Indonesia

The news these days are too frightening to see. I even write this with a heavy heart and feel like everything will be coming to its end. What's sad is that we thought could've prevented this, but that's a pretty stupid thought concerning nature is not ours to keep. Someone with a Greater Power is in charge. Deepest condolences to those who lost their homes and loved ones. I really couldn't picture how they felt at these times. Really praying for strength to overflow and joy to never depart from their sight. Amen :) 

Keep the faith :D

You can have it all, just can't have it all at once.

Well yeah, life can be pretty unfair. 


That's what I think at first. Until I know that it's a learning process that we have to try to get things slowly, but surely. One by one. 

This week has been... interesting ;p 

There's always one thing in each day this week that's missing. Starting by the internet. Well, I won't talk much about it since there's pretty much always a problem with my internet connection. But I'm happy now that it's working pretty darn well ;) Then the next day, my air conditioner broke. Had to fix it the next morning so I went to bed pretty much feeling like I was butter on hot toast. The next day, my cable was out. Since my TV has no other antenna other than cable, had to not watch TV for 2 days. The next day, probably was the climax of the week, the whole electricity was out. Good thing it was in the afternoon!! It happened for quite some time, but had the whole afternoon chit chatting with Mba Ati and my brother :) 

You might think there's no up side of the story, well you're wrong. Because aside from all the 'media' and 'connection from the outer world' that I lack in the past week, I had more 'me' time. Meaning-- reading, taking care of my body, and recipe hunting on magazines :) 

I've read this book like twice before, but there's always; ALWAYS new things that I receive every time I read books, even when it's the same ones. I've always thought that actually books are far more interesting than TV :p Because with books, your mind explore, you always picture things in your mind. That's why I think books can be powerful, because it can change your perspective in sooo many ways. With TV, it's almost like you're swallowing informations and all you do is receive, receive, and receive. But with books, you get to chew, and chew, and chew, and swallow things before you actually 'digest' the entire book. Please note that I don't mean it literally :p 

Well, yeah, I'm a huge sucker for books. I may not be the first person you run to when it comes to discussing how hot Edward Cullen is, or how exciting this week's Gossip Girl episode is, and I may not care if people think I'm boring, but I don't think that should hold me back ;) All those encyclopedia my parents bought me when I was little have not been in vain ;) 

Keep the faith :]

ICE ICE BABY!

Not cool, Kanye. Not cool.

This news might be sooooo yesterday, but I just want to say what I think about it. Stealing someone else's spotlight is most definitely UNCOOL. Not going to say anything bad about Kanye, I still think he's a good guy, but as we all know, fame can get into some people's head. Taylor Swift most definitely deserve the award, she's a very talented singer slash songwriter. So, yeah, although I like Kanye, I'm still on team Taylor ;) Kanye needs to cool himself down. 

Speaking of cooling down, I need to do so, too. This 'stalker', has just been creepier. It's one thing if I inspire you to make quotes, or notes, or posts, but it's another thing if you copy! UNCOOL. I mean, I don't know you. I just feel like I have another clone of myself. I mean, I need some space. And I don't know you! Didn't I stress that enough??? And since when is 'Keep The Faith' become YOUR signature saying? I've wrote that on my blog since like, FOREVER. You just couldn't get MORE OBVIOUS
I'm not going to publicize this person's name. That would be just... wrong.
Oh, well, not gonna sweat about it, just not worth it!!

Keep the faith!
XOXO

May I borrow an eraser?

It's creepy me again. Why creepy? Well, I remembered watching Oprah some time last year, and there's this episode of a girl who couldn't forget exact situations she has been through in her life. I remembered thinking some time last week, "If only I could watch it one more time." And the next day (or the day after the next day, I can't remember), that exact episode was on Oprah. I wasn't expecting to watch that episode since it's a pretty old episode, and still, it's on TV. I know, I scare myself :| 


A few days ago, a random thing popped up in my mind, I was thinking "There's this Disney movie that has to do with a whale eating this Disney character, but I can't remember what." My brother told me that it's Joseph, which doesn't make any sense, 'cause he was talking about that Biblical character, and even so, he's still wrong, it's not Joseph, it's Jonah. Oh, well. 

That wasn't what I want to talk about. I want to talk about that girl on Oprah that couldn't forget. It's not like she memorizes every single detail (she remembers exact day and date ever since she's a baby, including things what happened that day), it's like her brain is a nonstop recording machine. What's funny is that, she is bad in memorizing subjects when she was in school. She said it's cause she doesn't memorize the things that happened every day, it's almost like her brain never stopped recording every minute of the day. Oprah even tested her 'talent', she asked about random dates, and she could answer all of it with the right answers. Even some of the questions were wrong, and she could correct the dates because she remembers everything clearly. 

I personally think that would've been painful. I mean, I may not be as skillful as she is, but I don't forget quite easily either. And sometimes I wish I could erase some of the memories I have. Imagine never being able to forget every single critic, commentary, or mockery ever thrown to you? That would be such a dreadful life :( 

I just found out that this woman's name is Jill Price. She even wrote a book concerning her life, called "A Woman Who Can't Forget". She lost her husband after several years of marriage, and she said that her husband's birthdate and his death's date only have 6 weeks difference. She admits that her worst mood in any time of the year is within those 6 weeks, and even said to people not to get near her at that time, because year by year the emotion would be the same. I couldn't imagine how that feel like :'( 

Speaking of erasing things, I would also like to erase stalkers from the whole universe. They make life feel "insecure". Life might seem like a movie because of all the comedy, drama, and action in it, but it's not something the whole world should watch. 

Keep the Faith :P

In terms of desperation.

Hello, it's me again. As I'm trying over and over and over to sign into this MSN messenger of mine, I might be out of luck this time because it don't seem to bother my frustration and it keeps bouncing me off of my account! Oh well... 


So what do I do when I'm bored? I write stupid and silly stuffs, of course. And I don't just write it anywhere, I write 'em here, so the whole world can see how random and weird I am in real life. 

I feel like these days are the toughest. Troubles after troubles just keep on coming. Overflowin' like they come out of some sort of sink. Well I think there's something wrong with the sink because it seem to be leaking. There are a few times like I just kept quiet the whooole day. It's like the weight of the world is on my shoulder. I can't be bothered to talk to, to joke around with, I was just, feeling pretty much flat. 

Oh, wait, my MSN just came in. Whoopteedoo :D

Ah, no, wait. False alarm. Gaaah...

Okay, so, yeah, I just feel sooooo tired and everything seem endless. I feel like giving in because I just think it's way complicated, way too impossible for me to handle, it's like I want to say, "Okay, just stop right here. I've had it, I can't take it anymore, just-- stop." Thinking some sort of angel would pick me up and just take my problems away. Wishing life would be so much easier. Yeah, right. I sound very very ridiculous, I know. But this is what goes through my mind every second and minute of the day. Me myself is even trying to catch up!! Gahhh. Where will it all take me?? 

Oh, yeay. MSN on again :)
Please don't go off again, I'm begging you. 

Okay, 1 minute, good. Steady... Steady... Please stay on, please stay on!! 

I feel like it's that time where my true friends are being questioned again. I feel like it's that time where everything has to change, including my circle of friends. Because at the end of it all, only a few will make it to the end with you. The rest are new people that you learn to live with, and just, wait for their moment to leave again. 

My head is just... upside down! 

Keep the faith
XOXOX
