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

Treats a lady right.

Long time no post! So, well.. Nothing special about this post. I just feel like expressing and sharing something to the whole wide world :) I know it's not that important, but I just want to write something since I haven't been that much of a blogger lately. 



I think you can measure a guy's heart by how he treats his mom. If he shows how much he loves his mom, or how thankful he is to his mom, that's how you'll know if he's going to be able to treat you right. Who else could he be loving so much if it's not the woman who gives him birth? :D 
"Happy mothers day ma :) I love u"
"I owe every hour I invest and any award to this woman. I love my momma."

Told ya it was a random post ;) 
Ha!
I love this guy. You have no idea. 


I'm out :D
Keep the faith!!
XOXOX

September 2, 2009

Aduh ni hari sumpah deh gua pengen nangis rasanya!!!


To start my day of gloominess, if I could sum it up in a sentence, it was filled with a lot of drama! Ada orang mau beli barang dateng ke rumah pagi-pagi, bawel banget mau beli barang pake nawar gak kira-kira, nyokap ladenin kan bae-bae, tapi dia nya tetep gak tau diri, udah gitu akirnya gak jadi beli pula!! Terus tadinya me and Mom are supposed to leave at 9, karena ngeladenin tu orang gak penting, jadinya telat ditinggal pergi duluan deh, soalnya rencananya mau ikut orang. Udah kita samperin ke tempat dimana tu orang pegi, biar bisa bareng ke Jakarta nya. Okay, end of first drama. Hari ini emang entah kenapa mood gua SUPER JELEKKK ABIS. Feeling gua sih mau dapet. Entah cuma gua nya doang yang lebay ato gimana, tapi gua selalu ngerasa kalo mo dapet tuh pasti banyak kejadian aneh yang gak gua inginkan. FYI gua mau ke daerah Sunter, which takes like a minimum one hour car ride from where I live. Udah sampe, gua mau temenin perpanjang KTP nyokap sama buat baru KTP gua (kalo temen-temen gua dan lain-lain pada nembak, gua sendiri paling ketinggalan, abisnya nyokap and bokap anti sogok-sogokkan gitu sih, orangnya bersih non-korupsi aahahahah). Dari bulan lalu gak sempet, akirnya gua sempetin buat pergi sama nyokap, soalnya tulisan di KTP lama nyokap itu tinggal nya di kelurahan sunter, ato gimana lah gak ngerti gua, pokoknya ribet!! Yang gua tau adalah, orang Tangerang gak mau urusin KTP nyokap kalo gak nyogok, soalnya kelurahan KTP lama nya di Sunter. Nah, karena ada orang kelurahan Sunter yang nyokap kenal, dia nyaranin ke gua ke Sunter aja sekalian urus gua and dia punya. Eh emang dasar lagi apes, tu orang yang dulu kerja di kelurahan yang nyokap kenal udah keluar. Udah gitu orang kelurahan Sunternya yang baru yang gak nyokap kenal, itu SUPER NYOLOTTTTT, minta di bogem. Nadanya kalo ngejawabin tuh gak sante, beneran deh gua panas dengerin dia jawabin nyokap gua.


Nyokap: Pak, saya mau perpanjang KTP, Pak. (nyodorin map ke loket)

Bpk Nyolot: (ngeliat-liat map yang nyokap bawa) Dokumennya mesti lengkap, Bu!! Ini masih kurang surat keterangan dari RT, RW, gak bisa ni bu! Harusnya lengkap baru saya mau urusin!! (nyodorin balik map nya ke nyokap)

Nyokap: Kalo anak saya mau buat KTP baru ini mesti sama ya, Pak butuh surat keterangan juga?

Bpk Nyolot: Iya dong, Bu!! Gak bisa engga, kalo begini mah saya gak mau urusin, Bu!

Nyokap: Saya tinggalnya di Tangerang, Pak. Tapi KTP lama saya masih kelurahan Sunter, jadi orang Tangerangnya gak mau urusin kalo KTP Jakarta.

Bpk Nyolot: Ya saya gak mau tau dong! Ibu kenapa gak urus yang di Tangerang aja sih?! Udah tinggal di Tangerang mau urusnya kelurahan Sunter.

Wah, gua panas tuh. Gak worth banget bangun pagi-pagi buat telat dateng dan diolok-olok. Nyokap gua nyari bapak kelurahan yang dulu dia kenal.

Nyokap: Kalo Pak A masih kerja di sini gak ya, Pak? Biasa dia urusin KTP saya.

Bpk Nyolot: Oh si Pak A mah udah gak ada, Bu! UDAH SAYA KELUARIN! (Pake jari telunjuk nunjuk-nunjuk ke arah jarum jam 2 kayak Pangeran Bertopeng)

Nyokap: Oh, gitu ya, Pak. Yaudah deh ya, Pak. Makasih ya.


Terus nyokap gua punya ide cemerlang, nyamperin tetangga lama gua buat minta tolong urusin ke ketua RT di Sunter. Gua udah sedikit pesimis tuh, udah 8 tahun gua gak liat tetangga gua ini. Apa iya masih tinggal disana? Emang ye kalo diinget-inget mah, kadang-kadang temen lebih bae jauh dari sodara. Terus tanpa persiapan apa-apa, gak nelpon dulu atau gimana (soalnya nyokap juga udah gak ada nomernya), hanya dengan bermodalkan iman, dateng ke rumahnya. Wah, my luck is starting to change, untung ada dirumah, lalu disambut dengan sangat hangat, nyokap gua sama tante tetangga ini gossip-gossip dulu. Gua inget dulu sering maen di rumah dia ampir tiap hari, ke taman deket rumah juga, maen ayunan, dll. Jadi tante dan om tetangga gua ini punya anak 2, cewe dua-duanya, yang gede umurnya segede kk gua, yang kecil lebih kecil setaon dari gua. Jadi beti-beti lah umurnya, that's why kita ber4 nyambung. Udah di rumahnya, dijamu dengan makanan-makanan dan minuman, terus dia juga bilang mau urusin KTP nya dan lain segala macem. YES, BERES...


Oke, setelah itu bertolak ke Kelapa Gading, nyokap mau ketemu sama temennya, sekalian gua mau print foto buat KTP. FYI gua udah lama ngak nge blog lagi karena internet empot-empotan, emang minggu ini dasarnya gua bener-bener apes, HP gua juga tiba-tiba error gak bisa buat telpon orang, untung masih bisa SMS. Aduh, kejadian itu juga, ntar deh gua ceritain lagi, di lain blog. Hari dimana HP gua mati, semati-matinya. Rasanya mo loncat gua dari lantai 4, itu lagi di MALL GADING juga lagi, kayaknya Gading ada dendam ama gua. Hahaha gak gitu juga sih :p Hari itu gua ke Mall bawa laptop, lu assume gua mau apa? Ya Wi-Fi dong! Internet gratis, cing! EHHH EMANG DASAR APES SE-APES-APESNYA YEEEEE, udah duduk di Starbucks, nungguin temen nyokap, abis pesen minum gua tanya ke Mba nya, "Mba, Wi-Fi nya passwordnya apa?" Dia jawab, "Oh, kita Wi-Fi nya disini lagi gak bisa jalan, lagi error hari ini."


JEDERRRRR!!! SERIUS GUA PENGEN PULANG NGERINGKUK DI RUMAH DI DALEM SELIMUT DENGAN PALA NEMPEL DI BANTAL DAN NANGIS SE KENCENG-KENCENGNYA. HUWAAAAA :'( Padahal nyokap ngobrol sama temennya gua mau internet-an!! Udah beberapa hari ini internet di rumah gak bisa nyala, berharap bisa ber Wi-Fi ria! ARRRGH ADA APA SIH DENGAN ALAM SEMESTA HARI INI!?! Bertentangan banget dengan keinginan gua yang terpendam!! Huhuhuhuhuhuhuhu :(

Think my day couldn't get any worse? THINK AGAIN!!!


It was 14:46 p.m. Akirnya gua pindah ke Pisa Cafe di LaPiazza sama nyokap setelah dia ketemu di Starbucks dengan temennya, pesen iced lemon tea dengan harapan duduk bisa ber wi-fi ria. Baru log in ke profile gua, ngoeng ngoeng ngoeng... Kok berasa naek Titanic yee? Gua pikir yang bikin kaki gua goyang-goyang begeter gimana gitu adalah cooler ato mesin apa gitu yang dipake tu restoran. Biasanya kan suka rada lebay sampe bikin lantai bergoyang. Tapi kali ini rada gak wajar goyangnya. Gua liat-liatan sama nyokap. Rada setengah linglung gitu, kita jalan cepet setengah lari keluar restoran. Soalnya gua liat lampunya goyang-goyangnya kenceng abis. Eh gua liat dari kejauhan orang-orang juga pada tumpah dari dalem mall, lari-lari keluar pintu. Serem abis, asli. Terus gak lama udah reda, gua lanjutin deh Wi-Fi. Malah sempet foto-foto bentar sama nyokap. Mengabadikan momen abis gempa. Gua update Twitter dulu, chat sama beberapa orang di MSN, sambil nonton berita yang cukup menggoyahkan iman gua, jujur. Bukannya gua berasa kayak gak punya Tuhan, tapi sebagai manusia normal gua juga pasti ada rasa takutnya juga, apalagi setelah denger berpotensi tsunami, agak lemes gua duduk disana. Gading men, gak gitu jauh kan sama Ancol, kalo dialirin air udah tinggal ngalir aja tu aer, nyampe (yaiyalah ngalir, kalo ngesot baru gua heran). Gatau lah, biasa lagi chaotic gtu, wajar otak kadang suka ga ngotak. Turns out hari ini ada sekitar 30 earthquakes happened all around the world. Whoah.


Kalo udah kayak gini rasanya bingung mau ngapain lagi. Pengen langsung ke airport terus cao aja. Tapi bingung juga sekarang amannya dimana, no place seems to be safe nowadays. I'm praying for Indonesia. You should do, too. Nyadar gak sih kejadiannya sedikit 'aneh', di tanggal 2 bulan ke 9 tahun 2009. Whoah... Gua sih bukannya lebay ato ngada-ngada yang aneh-aneh, tapi gua berasa aja rada 'hoki'. Hahaha. Well, that is all!! Udah gak ada kata-kata yang bisa describe lagi apa yang gua rasain tuh hari! Speechless..

Ughhh, I really miss my old friends like Stella, Ruth & Melody :( Hope they're doing well.


Keep the faith!!! Nothing can shake us hard enough to let go!

LOVE XOX
