The journey of a thousand miles...

...begins with a single step



It was like any other day. The weather was okay, not too shabby, but not too clear either. Looking out on the road all I can see is big banners of the presidential parties, advertising themselves, what they have to offer to this country in the future. 

So I've been thinking, we can never know, what lies ahead. You'll see something, an opportunity, and your heart tells you to go for it, there's nothing wrong with chasing it, right? 

I'm chasing every opportunities-- one dream at a time, but why do I feel like everything is falling apart? Maybe this wasn't meant to be, maybe it wasn't meant for me, but why am I disappointed and hurt about it? But I guess it's better than left wondering. 

Something bigger, Nad, waaay bigger. Hold your head high :) 

On the other hand, I'm happy that E! News stated that the color of the month is WHITE. Random, I guess, but I'm flattered that they thought the exact same thing as I did, since I wrote about wearing white colors this month just a few days ago. I guess great minds think alike ;)

Keep the faith ;)

Because it hurts

I would lie if I say that my past doesn't influence the perception that I have today. I was once a very cheery person, not having to worry about what the future brings, an optimistic young girl. I've always questioned people what made them to change. Now I know the answer. Time does. 


Now I'm very much an impatient person, which I've always avoided myself to be. Feel contempt most of the time. If I was the sky, I would be gloomy. No, this is not the change I've been longing to have, it's that process everyone goes through to find what they're truly made up of. Who they truly are.

I won't settle for this. I'm fighting back, but I feel like my skin isn't as thick as it used to be. Now it's breaking 'cause the scars and bruises are never-ending. Yes, that's what I get for being nice to everyone. 



Let's see how long I'll survive through all this.
Keep the faith, although it's so hard to do so

It's obvious 'whi' you should wear WHIte :)

White is apparently my color of the month! From a very stylish gown or just a plain simple T-Shirt can make your day oh-so-colorful ;) Everyone wears it from the sophisticated Anne Hathaway, chic Angelina Jolie, and the young & hip Selena Gomez! Don't hesitate to mix and match this color, since you probably can pair it with whatever :)


Anne Hathaway
Loving the Asymmetric top :)
Beyonce
Again, not showing a little too much. Leaving everything to the imagination ;)

Lauren Conrad
Not over-accessorizing with a stylish black belt. And a transparent umbrella to complete the look!
Eva Longoria Parker
Love the beading around her chest, and a very flowy dress! ;)
Selena Gomez
Showing that a 16 year old can be chic too ;)
Kristen Stewart
I GOTTA SAY, I LOVE LOVE LOOOVE THIS DRESS! IT'S TOO PERFECT!
Freida Pinto
Black and bold accessories is the only way to go! :)
Angelina Jolie
Who said men are the only ones who look good in a Tux?
Miley Cyrus
T-Shirt worthy of a red carpet is paired with sparkly vest and a simple white shawl! Can't go wrong with fitted jeans and knee-high boots :)
Left to Right: Selena Gomez | Emma Roberts
I love how Selena paired this broken white dress with a nude pair of heels, she did just right ;) While on the other hand, I'm not crazy about Emma Roberts' look. Loving her blazer, but she shouldn't wear stockings and not a fan of her shoes either!

Whatever color you wear this month, make sure you wear it with your best attitude ;) 
Keep the faith!

In the pain, there is healing..

There has been this rash that has been eating my upper lip alive, so to speak, which was caused by this petroleum jelly that was supposed to keep my lips moist. Didn't really know how it happen, but I'm guessing it's because it was expired (well I don't know if jelly expires, it must have somehow turned bad) and turned my upper lip very red and sort of turned into this rash. It can be itchy sometimes, and also the surface of my upper lip turned very rough. People who have been around me, my family and friends know that it has been around for some time. Or if you have such good pair of eyes, you would've noticed from my pictures!

BUT NOW, GUESS WHAT, IT HEALEDDD :) :) :) :) :) 
Yeay-yuh ;) 

The funny thing is, I was told that I suppose to put aloe vera on my upper lip (this was before I found this magical gel! :p), and so I put aloe vera on my upper lip, but all I get was Charlie Chaplin look and it did not heal. Just made it itchier. I thought it was like this healing process, but it made it sort of red-er. So, I prayed to make the Doctor of all Doctors heal me, because I rarely take any medications even if it's like a headache, or a bad cold. 

My brother laughed at me all day long :(
AND IT DIDN'T WORK...
So much for the 'natural treatment!'

So, the next morning I thought to myself, "Man, this rash has got to stop, but I don't want to go to a doctor just because of a ridiculous rash. So what should I do?" and that something pops in my mind! Why don't I go to a pharmacy or a drugstore and ask some sort of ointment or gel that is specialized for any kinds of rash! I know, I can figure things out but need a very looooong time :p I thought, "Oh, those kind of things can be expensive, maybe 50k ++" But the drugstore lady gave me this gel slash ointment and it is VERY GOOD 'cause it doesn't make it itch, it smells sooooo darn good, and is very soft to the skin, and best, it costs 8k Rupiah! Wahahahahaa :) 
So yes, in the pain, there will be healing! Although they don't always come cheap, let's just say I'm always lucky ;) 


Or make that, very blessed :)
Still, moment of truth, I'm waiting, but at the verge of breaking down. 
Keep the faith!

For what it's worth

Doesn't it annoy and bother you to see that people who have done mean things to you, could still live a happy life? No, I'm not saying that I want their lives to be dreadful, maybe to be 'less happier' than I am. Okay, so I sound a little mean, but I don't want to be the same as they are. 


Although I know wholeheartedly that they're the ones who were wrong, sometimes I question myself-- could I be the one who's wrong here? 'Cause my life seems to be worse than theirs. Does that mean I have to be 'like them' to be happy? All smiles and laughters at times of other's difficulty? I don't think I'm anywhere near capable of doing that.

I thought what goes around comes around, but it seems like they're doing just fine. Is karma ineffective to some people? I always believe that everyone will be paid according to what they bought. Isn't it always that way? Well, I believe it always does. 

I don't mind, at the end, I figure I've always been that way. Playing the role of victim every time. Maybe because the villain character never suit me. I guess that's what made my skin so thick. At vulnerable times, I know I gotta dig deep, reach for the strength within me. For those who are experiencing the same, stay strong! Remind yourself that something big is on its way! ;) 



A LITTLE BIT MORE PEOPLE, WE'LL GET THROUGH THIS!
SO, KEEP THE FAITH(:

See where we can be if we press fast forward ;)

I hate it when I have an idea and think to myself "Okay, I don't have to write it down, it'll come back to me again when I want to do something about it," and kinda lost it when I wanna do something about it. 


Blame it on the a, e, a, e, alcohol. Blame it on the a, e, a, e, alcohol. 
Hey, for those of you who don't know, I was singing :p 

I've been thinking. The visitor box, that counts how many times people visit my blog, have been adding up, and I don't check my blog that often, unless I want to write something, so it's impossible to add up just because me myself pass by. So if anyone happens to pass by, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. Some comments or try talking to me through the chat box wouldn't hurt, you know :) 

I just want to get this week over with, go through the whole 'waiting pain,' and just know the truth! FAST FORWARD PLEASE!!! :( 

There has been some stranger that has been calling me these past few nights! It's been getting on my nerves. 'Cause he calls at like 1 a.m, 4 a.m, or 6 a.m in the morning, who just want me to pick up, because this stranger doesn't have anything better to do, so he decided to ruin my beauty sleep! Ahhh! 

And anyways, it's hard to tell who's fake and real these days, but it's about trusting your gut and don't give a darn what other people think. Yeah! ;)

KEEP THE FAITH PIPOL ;)

You're my Queen, with a capital 'Q'

Help! I'm on my lovey dovey mood and no one to talk to :| 
Maybe because I'm listening to "Love In This Club" by Usher and Young Jeezy and it's turning me on :) No, not like you guys picture it. Just the feeling of missing the love I used to get from a certain someone. Just because I've never been in a relationship, doesn't mean I haven't been in love. Wanting to call him at night just to soothe me, or maybe to listen to one song and remember the exact same time and place where I'm with him and make me smile. Okay, now I'm doing it. 

I don't know what's physically, mentally and emotionally wrong with me. I just haven't found the guy who made me go "He's my Mr. Right." Many people say that I'm picky, but that's anything but correct. If you say that in a sense of I don't date jerks, then so be it, I'm picky. The right guys that have been around turned out to just becoming very wrong! I guess I've been in love with the wrong people with all the right reasons. I just don't want to date a guy for the sake of being seen that I'm dating a guy, you know. But what I just found out is that, every guy that has been close to me, had to leave abroad! Does that mean a "long distance relationship" is on sight? I guess I'll never know. Maybe it's good, referring that means not so many drama involved, or maybe... because of the distance, it just made it harder to make things work? Na'h, I think there's a solution to every problem. I know, I talk to myself in my mind a lot. That's what made me know more about me, as strange as that seems, it's true-- at least that's what I feel. But yeah, I want a guy who wants to commit, not just to play games. I may be young, but the relationship I picture is anything but with a guy who's immature. It's true, age is nothing but a number ;) 

Manliness is not weigh on how brave a guy is, when he asks a girl out, or when he asks a girl to be his girlfriend, but it's weigh on how afraid he is-- when it comes to breaking a girl's heart- Nadia Juliana

KEEP THE FAITH ALIVE :)

'Cause if you go, I'll go...

Idk about you guys, but I feel that the Earth has been really REALLY hot these days. Not that it's a good thing, nooooo, not at all. 

Waking up, I really felt like these unreal days are just way too fast. I have to keep up! Oi'h. 
My appetite has been anything but right these days, I can't eat at the proper time, and when it's time for me to eat, it's uncontrollable! Strangely enough, I lost a lot of weight. Ugh. 
No fro-yo's this week!

...Yet! 

Whooooo(; 

I'm overly excited about some stuffs, although those are just somewhat bizarre, but I'm really looking forward to it! I bet it'll be fun! Not to mention, life changing.

Speaking of life-changing-fun stuffs, I print-screen(ed) this amazing fella from YouTube, if you haven't seen him, then psssh... Your loss :p 
He has this cute smile (and dimples!) and also have this signature goodbye wave before he finishes his amazing video of himself singing. Yes, he sings; To top all of the goodies he has including the ability to play guitar (with highly undisputed talent!). 
Be ready to see a whole lot of him in the future! I PRAY TO GOD I WOULD! 
*grins* 



Keep the faith!!

The horror.....

Today didn't go as well as I would've expected it to be... 

Well you know what they say, "There's always tomorrow...
I was reminded by the lesson of when you least expect things to happen, that's when it will actually happen.

I went to the Mall, and I met a friend's friend of mine, and I met him like a few months ago or so, and so I saw him, and what made me remembered him was because I was wearing the same shirt I wore when I met him! So I ran like the wind! Nyahahaha :p I just can't bear the embarrassment! 
And P.S: He's very cute :p 

And I tried calling my brother to pick me up, but his cell was unreachable, so I called Mom, and what I didn't know was actually my Mom was NOT at home, and I told Mom to tell my brother to pick me up, and all Mom said was, "Ok, ok..." so I assume that she would tell my brother would pick me up. I waited for 30 minutes outside and my cell went dead (I seriously felt like screaming), so I went to the wartel (I don't know what it's called in English- it's sort of like this phone booth), I called my brother, and kinda went bananas because I was tired, and I was pissed at the same time. My brother (poor guy) picked me up and sort of not knowing why I was so furious, asked me what's wrong and I went babbling like a mad baboon. 

I reached home, tired, felt like getting something to drink. So I took my glass, poured some water, and drink it like a fugitive who just made it out of a deadly jungle. And then, I realized something stupid happened. 
I was chewing gum. 
So I swallowed the friggin gum and felt quite scared afterwards. But then I took a bath and went online and someone told me, "No worries, I did that thousands of times. You don't need to worry." 

Yes, the kind of calming advice I need after this agitated day. 
I seriously wouldn't know what to do if it wasn't because of you :)
Well, I hope tomorrow would be the exact opposite, hoping to finally receive good news I've been wishing to hear. 

Keep the faith

Past that phase...

Life is not always about the money and the fame, the boots and the coats, the premieres and the parties. Life is beyond that; far beyond that. Its meaning and its moral are relevant. But you can't just google 'life,' because the answer is not found on some search engine, you have to find it out yourself. 


I've past that childish phase, and I find that life's about evolving. So where is really the focal point of life? The happiest place you felt you are, there's where your center of interest come knocking. To be very honest, I haven't found that place, and I'm hoping I will find it soon. 

The shallow thought want to be famous, but to share what you've got to the world without taking anything back, that's integrity. Every desire leads to determinations and with a whole lot of will, you'll get very far! 

Feeling pretty artsy, I'd say? Na'ah, just a little sumn sumn I have been thinking about. 
Okay, so, this week. Moment of truth. Oh, God, let me be thankful for whatever is coming, I know my future's in gooooooooood haaaaaaaaaands :) :) :)

*gulps*

Cops can chase but they won't catch me! ;)

Have you ever felt like someone around you is... 'fishy'? 

Like, you kinda have this gut feeling that someone is up to no good? Well, that's what I felt when I'm around someone... I feel like this person is hiding something, and it kinda shows. Or maybe I can see it. And I'm trying to ignore this person as much as I can. 


BTW BTW BTW... VINA IS IN BALI AND I'M DEAD JEALOUS OF HER :( :( :
Her flight was on 1 p.m this afternoon, and yet she posted pictures on Facebook already! Ngawh :( 
It's been hours since we last met, yet I miss her so much :( How can I live miles away without her!!! :'(

Calm down, Nad. Your time will come. 

Went to church today and watched my brother played soccer just now. Had to take pictures with Winnie, 'cause I was bored to death ;)
Winnie and Meeeee :)

Blurrrrr :(

That is all for my updates!
Keep the faith, peopleeeee :)

On a beautiful Saturday morning :)

GOOOOOD MORNINGGG :) 


I had trouble sleeping last night and continuously woke up every 1 friggin hour. So I decided to text 'the (so called) coolest person on Earth' and said that I can't sleep. The only advice this person came up with was, "Try closing your eyes and don't move!" 
Sure... Like that's going to help! :p 
So I listened to some music and thank God, it really helped me to go back to bed! 
Yesterday someone blew off his promise to meet up with me, kinda bummed, but oh well, it was kind of expected from someone like him. 

Today's a new day, people! 

Got the pictures from last Karaoke trip, actually other than pictures, I have a video but don't think will be posting it here LOL :) 

THE FUNTASTIC FOUR! ;)
Grace, Flore, Vina and Me

Top (Left to Right): Priska, Genevie, Grace, Flore, Vina
Bottom: Vania and Me

The crazy bunch :)

Busy taking pictures while others are singing LOL

Umm, I forgot what we were singing...

Before going homeeeee :)

There are some boys too, but since they're 'camera shy' and since us girls are such 'camwhores', we ended up with appearing on each and every pictures! :) 
And the brown oversized T-shirt made me look huge!! Well doesn't matter :) 
That is all for the quickie update :D
Keep the faith, people!

This clock never seem so alive...

Ola, peepolll :) 


So, this day started a bit rough, but luckily enough I received a text (who would've thought one text can suddenly changed my mood 180 degrees!!!) that really made my day! At exactly 11:48 a.m, I was blown away by the news that I've been waiting all week long :) Now I can breathe again! :) 

On a lighter note, my friend had her graduation day today, I was invited to come and see her graduate, but unfortunately, no one was at home to drop me off, so I waited 'til my brother come back at about 2:30 ish and I texted her if she was still at school, turned out she wasn't, she already headed back, and so we went to this karaoke place and there were around 10 people that came along and we had a blast!!! Some of the people were-- unexpected. Just didn't know they would show up. 

AFTERWARDS, GUESS WHAT???
I BOUGHT MYSELF SOME FROZEN YOGHURT!!!
*sigh*

Pictures posting: soon :) 
Oooh, ooh, Hero is on. Whoop Enrique :) 

I'm on MSN chatting with probably THE coolest person ever! Hahahahahaha :) 
We are such goofs :)

The thrill and the chill are making me nervous!

Hello Wonderful World of Blogspot :) 


It's Wednesday and we're halfway through the week. Whoo every week's just getting faster and faster :( Still am very anxious about a lot of stuffs, a lot of announcements, a lot of events. Despite all the publicity some 'celebrity', so to speak, have been receiving lately, I'm also dealing with certain stories in life. But not as dramatic as it has been to some people. So here I am laying on my bed, with my laptop on mylap and at a very comfy position, I would do something I've been wanting to do :p

Shoutouts to: 

- Bixx: Hey come back from China already!! Don't forget SOUVENIRSSSSS :) I'll be waiting :D 

- Vina: I hate you for leaving me for Bali. I hate hate hate you. P.S: My shoe size is 38, and I like the colour blue, a dress or a cute top would be nice :) :) :) 

- John: Oi, Mr. Engineer, good luck and all the best for your exam okay! I'll see you soon! Sour Sally is waiting for us :) 

- Arin: Happy happy birthday!!! :D 

- Stella: I MISS MISS MISS YOUUUUU :( 

Umm that is all, I'll think of something better to write. In due time, I'm back on MSN and Facebook. Okay, okay and also Twitter :)

P.S: EVERRR SOOOOO EXCITEDDDDDDDDDDD :D :D :D

LOVE xoxox

8-B

Okay, I need to save, and I mean REALLY SAVE money!

Or I'll be going on a crisis soon :(

 
I really have been splurging on a lot of stuffs lately, and that is not good at all! But not that I spend them on clothing, most of my spending went to the movies and frozen yoghurt!!! :( 

So I went to the mall and had to wait for my friend for 2 and a half hours, so I thought what other fun way to spend it but in the book store, right? :) I was quite happy that I was alone in the book store and had quite a lot of time to read. I read some good books, one of the books was recommended by Oprah, so I knew I couldn't go wrong with that book. I also had the time to read autobiographies, that put the spotlight on some legendary people; like Michael Jordan, Steven Spielberg, Walt Disney (Yippie! :p), and none other than the one and only TV show phenomenon-- Oprah.

You might think I'm a huge nerd, but I have to admit, I pretty much am. So I'm 16 and don't wear heels to the mall, and so I don't spend hours to do my hair and make-up before a party, some of you might think I'm weird, but to be perfectly honest, I'm so darn proud of it :) 

But it won't be too long before I give up my 16 year old label, if I can choose not to, I don't want to turn 17 :( I just don't like aging. I don't like the idea of birthdays. It's like I'm running out of time, there's just so much to do in life that I haven't done!! 

Speaking of so much to do, I really want to watch a lot of movies (okay so I'm such a movie buff) this holiday. I can practically be in the cinema every day of the week! Okay, not so helpful to the I-need-to-save-money scenario I'm handling at the moment :p 

I might sound like I'm running out of money, nooooo, I just don't like the idea of constantly asking money to my parents, it just sounds so wrong :p 
I'm just conscious enough to realize that "Hey, I'm 16, isn't it time for me to get myself movin'?" :p

Anyone knows what to do on a not-so-hectic-holiday like mine? Any good, LEGIT jobs anyone would like to offer? Would love to fill these holiday days of mine with something somewhat useful! Errgh...

Well that is all, I'm outie :)
Later peeps xx

The curiosity of those people!

What is it about my life that interests you so much? I'm still in shock on how some people BARELY even know me and still, have a little something to say about me. I mean, get real, people, you don't even know me. It's crazy how updated they are about my life, like things I kept private like who my crushes are, and what I'm talking about with my best friends. It's getting pretty creepy now :\ Anyways, it's June, holiday season is here. People from abroad just keep coming back to Indonesia! Yeayness :) Hopefully it would be one interesting holiday because I'll be here in Indo all season long, although I'm in desperate need of a getaway! 


Okay so, I don't know why but Italy has been on my mind since day 1 of holiday! I've been wanting to go because the food there are just delightful and the people there are oh so very friendly :) Plus the travel guide shows have been showing the beautiful views of Italy and the popular destinations in Italy, too!! Just made it harder for me to get it off my mind :( 

The 5 things I want to do in Italy are:

1. Gondola ride in beautiful Venice!!!

2. See Galleries, Museums, and Operas!
Uffizi Gallery, Florence

Vatican Museum

Opera in Verona

3. Eat Pizza in Naples, and have 2 scoops of Gelato daily ;)
YUMMAY PIZZA!!!

ARRRGH I NEED SOME OF THOSE!

4. Sunbathe in beautiful Sardinia :D
5. Last, but not least, what's a trip to Italy without seeing these 3?
Be a Caesar for a day, walk in the Colosseum!

Experience the Amazing Pisa Tower

Wish your journey to never end in the famous Trevi Fountain

I shouldn't include this one on my 5 to-do-list, because this one is A MUST! What other thing to do on your holiday but... SHOPPING! ;)
Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, Chanel stores in Milan, Italy
The Fabulous Fashion Capitale of the World! :)

One last glance of the beautiful Italy. Please take me there, I'd marry you!!!
... Okay, maybe not ...



... you like gummy bears?????
:) :) :) :) :)
