TINY LITTLE THINGS

YAHOOOOO dearest bloggers whatsup! It's been like years since the last time I blogged. my deepest sincerest apology. will you all forgive me? I know you will ;)



nope I won't write much for this posting,I'll just get through them by a pic. so here it is.






this flower is small. very tiny indeed, that you have to bend down, almost kneeling, to take its pic. well, actually, I don't even know what's its name.

this may be small, but it can grow on itself, relying only on rain, and sunshine. it shines, blooms, and grows among wild grass, leaves, and hard soils.


well, the same thing occurs to us.

we're small, while the world is huge. but you know what?


"Great things are done by a series of small things brought together." -- Vincent Van Gogh

HEY HO!

Heheheheheey bloggers from around the world! This is my very very first posting from new location. yes, you read me right, people. I'm postingg from the IT room at cjc hostel!

Only for your info, my days were quite well. nothing much to tell. I got lotsa new friends from many countries in ASEAN, I started bridging course from 8.00 to 17.00 (which is damn exhausting), I could hardly go online, and the lights are out every 23.00. yet we had a lot of fun here!


Ooh, and I'm now walking and walking and walking and taking bus and taking MRT alot. Perhaps in the next two years I'm gonna have a greeeaaaaaaat pair of leg. HAHAHAHA.

Everything is fine here in singapore. No wonder it's called a fine city. Ha. Well, there's one thing that sucks. It's the curfew thingy. It really troubles me a lot. yesterday myfriends and I were racing against the 22.00 curfew. We ran  and ran and ran like we were chased by ghosts. Well, if you don't go back by that curfew time, you'll be  raged, or worse, you'll be grounded.

Oh, Grounded means "say-no-to-hang-out-at-weekend",
while Curfew means "don't-you-dare-to-go-out-later-than-that-time".


Well, they're just some random things I wanna tell y'all.
 and last but not the least, here are some photos!










1) in front of the school, after buying uniforms and books.
2) inner part of the school (left to right: me; ida; tiffany)
3) near the court-field
4) with the mums
5) the canteeen!
6) the hostel's tv room.


Ooooh by the waay, I'm going home for CHRISTMAS! Wooohooo I feel really happy for that. So, see yall later!

I'LL SEE YOU SOON!

Okay I think it's bahasa indonesia's time.


Nggak, gue nggak akan ngomong good bye, so long, farewell, dadah, daag, au revoir, atau apapun dengan bahasa manapun yang mengisyaratkan perpisahan. they're just bullshyt. gue nggak mau sok melodramatis dengan bilang "ini post terakhir gue sebelum gue pergi", ato "mulai besok semua dalam hidup gue akan berbeda 180 derajat" ato apapun yang sok drama queen cuma untuk bilang kalo besok gue mau cao.


Iya, gue mau cao. dan dengan ngomong "cao", bukan berarti gue nggak balik balik lagi. namanya sekolah, ya ada liburan dong. dan kalo liburannya panjang dan ortu gue ada rejeki, ya pasti gue akan balik! dan gue masih bisa ketemu sama temen-temen gue yang sangat-sangat-sangat baik perhatian lucu ga pelit rajin menabung ga sombong dan juga care.

So, I won't say good bye. And no one needs to. just say "I'LL SEE YOU SOON!", because that's what's going to happen. we're gonna see each other soon, perhaps next year, in march. Or if I'm allowed to go home for this christmas, we'll see each other sooner, won't we?




SO, I'LL SEE YOU SOON :)

*oke. gue nulis kaya gini buat meyakinkan diri gue kalo gue bisa. gue pasti bisa. dan gue ga boleh nangis karena nangis ga akan bikin gue ga jadi berangkat. dan nangis ga bisa bikin temen-temen gue ikutan cao ke singapur. I. Must. Be. Strong.

Back off and enjoy the pics :)

Howdy, bloggers. How's your days? Too heavy? Too stressful? Well then, back off for a few mins, and take a deep deep breath. I'm 100% sure that these cool pics are going to make up your mood. Why? Because you're gonna find yourself too busy admiring these simply cool pics!

So, recline your seat, and enjoy them!




these flowers are called forget me not. never, never forget the memories behind you when you're stressed. sometimes, reminiscing memories helps you to recover :)
This lovely pic is taken from: http://shtrumf.deviantart.com/






Love everybody, and they'll love you back. when you're down, try to think about everyone you love, everyone you care. their smile, their laughter, will simply make up your day :)

Sing along, birdie! Singing, or even only whistling, can heal your bad mood, buddy. Well, it depends on what you sing, though. Don't ever sing songs for the broken hearted, requiem songs, or songs about anger. Choose songs with upbeats and happy lyrics! It'll make your mood rise and shine :)
This lovely pic is taken from http://ruiokecing.deviantart.com/







This happens a lot in humans, doesn't it? Surrounded by angry, upset, or perhaps, bad mooded people is tough. It can affect your own mood. Perhaps laying back is a good solution. Keep your thoughts and your aura positive! Chin up, guys :)

Who doesn't like cute things? Dolls, kids, puppies, babies. They can make you smile! So take a look at this little boy with chicks around his overall. UBER CUTE :)

Well, maybe the creator's idea about this pic is different with mine, but let's say about friendship. A friend in need, is a friend indeed! Think about your besties, and smile :)

One day in venice. Now, think about your dreams. Where's the most place you're desired to go to? Think about you, going there, watching the locals doing their things, enjoying the atmosphere, traveling to interesting places there. Life's good, ain't it? And you know what, you don't have to go to those places to enjoy your life. Think about your family. your friends. your house. your school/college/work. Somehow, you'll find your life is greeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaat :)

Well, come on now. Get up and smile!
Your life's too good, don't stress yourself up. Just let it flow, and enjoy the ride :)

CHUCK TAYLOR THE CLASH HI.
Yes this is one of the new entry in Singapore's website. As you can see, it has a word "CALLING" on its rubber. Hmm, are you wondering why they call it "the clash"? let's take a look on the lower part:

YIHA it really does glow in the dark. super cool, rite?
-------------------


Phew, that's all for now. You wanna know more? take a visit at http://www.converse.com/ for the U.S. store, and http://www.converse.com.sg/ for the Singapore one. I wonder why don't we Indonesian have converse web. We really really should make one.



Well, happy shoe-surfing ;)

I just haven't met you yet.

I'm not surprised, Not everything lasts,
I've broken my heart so many times I stopped keeping track.
Talk myself in,
I talk myself out,
I get all worked up,
Then I let myself down,

I tried so very hard not to loose it;
I came up with a million excuses,
I thought I thought of every possibility,

And I know some day that it’ll all turn out,
You'll make me work so we can work to work it out,
And I promise you kid that I give so much more than I get~ mmm.......
I just haven't met you yet.

Mmmmm ....

I might have to wait,
I’ll never give up,
I guess it's half timin', and the other half's luck,
Wherever you are,
Whenever it's right,
You'll come outta nowhere and into my life.

And I know that we can be so amazin',
And baby your love is gonna change me,
And now I can see every possibility, mmmmmm....

Somehow I know that it’ll all turn out,
You'll make me work so we can work to work it out,
And promise you kid, I'll give so much more than I get, mmmm....
I just haven't met you yet.

They say all’s fair
in love and war
But I won’t need to fight it,
we'll get it right an',
we'll be united

Instrumental

and I know that we can be so amazin',
And bein' in your life is gonna change me,
And now I can see every single possibility, mmmmmm

And someday I know it'll all turn out,
And I'll work to work it out,
Promise you kid I’ll give more than I get
Than I get, than I get, than I get.

Oh, you know it'll all turn out,
and you'll make me work so we can work to work it out,
And promise you kid to give so much more than I get, yeah
I just haven't met you yet.

I just haven't met you yet,
Oh, promise you kid,
To give so much more than I get.

I said love love love love love love love.....
I just haven't met you yet
Love love love .....
So doy day ay ay ay, ay ay yeah
I just haven't met you yet!


Michael Buble - Haven't Met You Yet.
[lyrics from http://www.elyrics.com/]

well, I know that posting lyrics in blogs are sooo common, and I'm supposed to be unique instead of common. Yet I must admit, that I really really really like this song very much that I can't stand for not posting its lyrics. Ha!

and here's the vids:




The conclusion is simple. True love is there, and beside believing, all you've got to do is wait for it rather than forcing yourself, hurting yourself with some "cinta monyet", or perhaps I should call it pointless crush.
Yes I once let myself into those "pointless crush", and I found myself regreting of what I had done.

C'mon, life is not that short, guys :)

Two Blasting Days

It's been a blast for me during these two weeks. YES, loads of things happened, I went on some freaking fun activities with my scholar friends. Lemme tell ya!

Rabu, 21 Okt.
WE WENT TO DUFAN. yes, dufan. oke, mungkin itu terkesan biasa, blablabla tapi gue harus akuin itu asyik seru. dan karena itu weekdays, aduh maaak sepi banget dufannya. meskipun panas, tapi itu asyik bangeet. kita bisa bolak balik naek wahana dua kali, teteriakan, norak norakan, adu udik, karna well, nobody knew us, so who cares!

gue naik kora-kora, extreme log, perang bintang, ke rumah kaca rumah miring foto2, niagara dan akhirnya naik arung jeram. sayangnya gue harus pulang duluan gara-gara ada les gitar. temen-temen gua mensupport gua untuk bolos, yes they did. tapi sayang dua minggu sebelumnya gue udah bolos, jadi bokap marah-marah dann gua pun mau ga mau harus les.

oiya ada sebuah kejadian yang sangat "berkesan" dan "gak terlupakan" menjelang kepulangan gua. nah terakhir-terakhir kan kita main basah-basahan tuh. gue naik niagara dua kali, ciprat-cipratan selama di jalurnya, dan hasilnya, belom juga meluncur turun ke bawah, kita udah basah kuyup duluan.
abis itu kita lanjut ke arung jeram. waktu naik buat yang kedua kalinya, kita main ciprat-cipratan lagi, tapi kali ini pake kaki. dan saat lagi menciprat-ciprat dengan seru, tiba-tiba SANDAL GUA TERBANG bersama air cipratan.
yes you read me right. sandal itu hanyut ngikutin arus arung jeram, dan gue hanya bisa terpaku syok. dan sampe sekarang, they're gone.

abis itu gue ganti baju, beli sandal baru, dan pulang. meskipun dinodai insiden sandal itu, dan gue pulang duluan jadi ga bisa ikutan acara main bianglala dan kuda-kudaan, trus dinner di le bridge, that day was a duper bbbbbbLAST.

Here are some pics!






Captions:
1) We just entered dufan! yes. langsung foto-foto. HAHA
2) waiting for the extreme log. kinda spontaneous :)
3) after niagara-gara. extremely wet, but we had fun.


-----------------------


Kamis, 28 Okt.

WE LEARNT HOW TO MAKE SUSHI. ya, sushi. tau kan, makanan jepang yang sekarang lagi populer-populernya di jakarta dan sekitarnya. kesannya, lo-ga-suka-sushi-lo-ga-gaul. Oke, tapi bukan itu yang gue mau omongin.

Jadi, hari itu gue bersembilan orang pergi ke Sakura, restoran sushi di daerah jaksel. Gue mungkin terkesan ga gaul, tapi jujur, gue baru tau kalo disitu ada restoran jepang yang namanya sakura. well, it's faaaar from my home. wajar dong kalo gue gatau.

Over all, the course was fuuuuun. kita belajar cara bikin lima macem roll, yang enak-enak (yaeyalahyaa), trus ada break makan siang---makan sushi pastinyaaa, dan praktek. hasil prakteknya juga dibawa pulang. Aah, harganya ga gitu mahal pula. dan yang pasti, kita juga foto-foto-foto.






caption:
1) right in front of sakura. yaaa, itu pas kita baru nyampe.
2) lunch time!
3) kita selesai prakteknyaa :)


Nah, abis selesai praktek, kita pergi ke rumahnya audi, yang deket dari sakura. disana kita nonton dvd, ngegeratak kamar dia, ngemil-ngemil, dan (of course) foto-foto! si audi ini punya kamera dslr, plus tripodnya. jadilah kita foto-foto-foto-foto-foto.





Okay, I don't think you need captions for those photos ;)

Yaaaaaappp itu dia dua hari yang "wow" bersama scholaarsss.


After the good good news, I've got a bad news for you. it's about my departure date. yes, I'm leaving at november 19th. don't blame your eyes, it is at 19th. Well, I guess I should spend more time in having fun, then. And spare my time for packing :(

I forgot how fun my life is

Blogging used to be so fun to me.


In early days, I used to blog so often, and my days felt uncomplete when I haven't updated my blog.
Yes, at weekends, I used to rush to my pc, access blogger.com and pffff.



typing anything in my mind.
sharing every random thoughts I had to you readers.
blabbering about every single annoying things I've experienced.
complimenting every fun and exciting days I've got.




And now here I am, looking back to myself, asking to my own heart:




"what changes me?"


yes I wonder, what changes my life? it used to be so colorful, dynamical, so fun to share, so great to enjoy.


but hey, people. it's all because of me. myself.


yeah. nobody can change your life. it must be you, who change it, under your consciousness.

I realized that it's me who have no intention to enjoy it, no attempt to make it colorful like before. I'm too focused on myself, my stupidity, my badness, and every mistake I made,

without looking outside--to people who had worse life than mine.
I forgot that there are people who have nothing to eat, have no house to live on, have no family to love, have no friends to hang out with, and have no computer to blog.




well, the point is that I forgot how to be thankful.



and now, after knowing what I forgot, I wanna learn back from the beginning, start a new fresh page of my life :)

Hey, I'm a girl

Yes, I'm a girl, everybody. ONLY an ordinary one.


You must be wondering why do I state that. lemme explain.


Well, selain gaul sama cewe-cewe, gue juga ngerasa nyaman main sama cowo. bukannya kegatelan ato gimana, kalian juga harus ngakuin, kadang main sama temen beda gender itu juga seru. Yep, they have their own point of view, which sometimes- help me understand how guys act.


Sayangnya, main sama temen yang beda gender (in my case: guys), ada juga ga enaknya. kadang gue ngerasa, karena udah deket, dia jadi lupa kalo gue itu cewe.

Maybe because he thinks that I'm stronger than other girls, or whatever reasons.




Tapi helloooooo.


biar gimana pun, gue kan cewe biasa.


gue nggak selalu kuat. mungkin dari luar gue keliatan kuat, ceria, cengar-cengir, semangat, tapi bisa aja gue lagi bad mood, lagi perlu support ato apa gitu.


(for your information, main sama cowo bikin gue jadi lebih ahli nyembunyiin perasaan gue.)




arrrrrrrrrrrrrgh. tau lah. gue pusing.

(sorry, gue jadi curcol begini -,-)

Don't judge us before you know us.

MAN, I'm now posting with horrible eyebags in my eyes. hahaha maksa banget ngepost blog, padahal mata udah berat.



Hari ini gue baru aja balik dari acara outbound (well, menurut gue, harusnya namanya ret-ret. bukan outbound, as the real outbound is only on thursday. HAHA)


Tadinya, gue bener-bener ga ada semangat, sama sekali ga ada, buat pergi. Asli, gue bete banget malem sebelum pergi, males ngepack, pokoknya males bangeeet ga ada niat.



However, now I must admit that if I hadn't come to this thing, I would have had the biggest regret. yes. gue ga bakalan bisa akrab sama sesama scholars, ga bakal bisa deket, lucu-lucuan, dan gue bakalan cuma bisa ngejudge mereka dari apa yang gue liat doang.



Thanks GOD, I came. Seriously, mereka fun banget. seru, lucu, dan kalo orang bilang yang namanya scholars itu cupu, freak, seriusan, hobinya cuma belajar, they're definitely idiot.


Kita bisa kok having fun. main kartu, ngadu garing, becanda-becanda, ledek-ledekan, ngegosip, dan ngelakuin banyak hal seru bareng-bareng. dan banyak banget di antara temen-temen gue itu yang punya skill lain yang "WOW".


Hmmm let's see.


ada yang bisa sulap. kalo ga ikut outbound, mana bisa gue tau kalo gue punya temen yang bisa sulap dan belajarnya otodidak (ga pake ngeles, man. mantap), dan gayanya profesional abis, udah ampir mirip lah sama romedal yang di the master itu loh. IVAN MANTAP EUY.

ada yang bisa nari techno. Oh, man. kalo lu ga ikut outbound dan cuma liat tampang sekilas, gue jamin lo ga bakal bisa tau kalo ARMAN bisa nari. matanya sipit, pake kacamata, tampang serius, muka baby face lugu-lugu, tapi begitu disuruh nari, badannya bisa lentur abis kaya karet. MANTAP EUY.

dan ternyata temen sesekolah gue pun punya kejutan sendiri. luken dan topaz yang biasanya di sekolah serius setengah mampus, becandaannya ga jauh-jauh, mainnya juga ga jauh-jauh, ternyata mereka juga bisa nari techno bareng arman. well, mereka baru belajar, tapi at least mereka bisa. dan gue bener-bener kaget. they're good!

cewe-cewe pun ga kalah ngagetin. in only five days, kita bisa kompak pak pak pak. ngegosip bareng, ga mandi bareng, begadang bareng, oh gosh fun bangeeeet.

gue juga jadi kenal sama yang tadinya ga se-ignatius, ga ikut ignatius, ataupun yang ignatiusnya sama tapi gue belom deket. kita jadi bisa ngobrol-ngobrol, kongkow-kongkow, asyik lah pokoknya.




semalem juga fun banget. karna malem terakhir, beberapa dari kita ngajakin begadang bareng-bareng. jadi kita ngemil, maen gitar, ngegosip, maen kartu, ngobrol-ngobrol, dan akhirnya jam 4 gue pun teler. well, it's still fun!


dan satu-satunya yang bikin gue mau pulang cuma kamarnya yang bau, banyak serangga. hahaha.



how am I feeling right now?

totally unexplainable.
Oh, guys. we rock :)

(TOO) long yet pathetic holidays

lately, i suck at blogging. have nothing to write about, have no pics to upload here, and well, things are not going well either.


seems like this too long holiday is eating me alive.



I have only few things to do, and it's kinda repeated all day. you know how monotone it is. YES, monotone. or as I say, tasteless.


what are the things? they can be counted by two hands.


*the first one is (of course): Online.

gosh it starts to make me browned off, online-online- and online. shoot. and the best part is that nobody's online on weekdays, well except my scholarmates. (yes, reader. i'm speaking in ironic way)


*watching TV

yes this is my getaway when I'm too bored to go online. However, local tv stations are -oh my- getting worse in choosing the programs to be broadcast. their shows are ...pathetic. or what we say here, ALAY. yes, sooooooo dreadful. they seem to lose their creativity in creating new shows. thank GOD i subscribe to cable tv. so i can have some pleasure in watching axn, mtv, hbo, etc. it entertains me, a little.


*watching dvds

okay. I have some dvd stocks that i haven't watched yet. however, the stocks are decreasing as I watch one in a day. uh oh.


*reading books

the books are now so few! what I do is not reading, but re-reading. yes. and you know that it's boring. my mom won't buy me books, and i have few money to buy some myself.



that's all. oh look! they can be counted not by two hands, but one hand is enough!


yes. my days are pathetic. some friends ask me: why don't I hang out to some malls? Oh no, I can't hang out, my parents don't let me. yes, the reason's as simple as that.





urgggggggh. I can hardly enjoy my life.

Engkong Mengubah Saya.

Kita berpikir kalau Indonesia itu hancur lebur. Generasi muda menyedihkan, budaya ga keurus, pemerintahan berantakan, dan semua yang jelek-jelek. Sayangnya, kita, anak muda, seringkali hanya memikirkan masalah-masalahnya aja. Kalau ditanya solusinya? Mungkin dari seratus yang ditanya, tidak sampai separonya bisa memberi solusi. Yang keluar dari mulut cuma dumelan, keluhan, atau yang paling parah,


"Itu kan urusan pemerintah. Mereka dong yang harus cari solusi"


atau intinya, mereka ngga peduli sama solusinya. Yang penting itu harus dihentikan, diubah, ga peduli gimana caranya. Dan waktu melihat kalau pemerintah nggak mampu (atau mungkin belum) ngatasin masalah itu, atau usaha pemerintah kurang efektif, mereka yang tadi nggak bisa ngasih solusi itu yang akan protes duluan. Segala kritik, sampai caci maki bisa keluar.


Ironis, bukan.


Saya akui, saya juga bukanlah orang yang seratus persen concerned sama setiap isu-isu negara, dari tentang politik, kaya DPR, korupsi, RUU, Otonomi Daerah, krisis ekonomi, dll. Baca koran aja mood-mood an. Kalau tertarik sama headline nya, baru deh baca sampai habis. Apalagi kalau nggak ngerti apa inti dari isunya. Kalau udah begini, biasanya saya nanya sama engkong saya.

Engkong saya umurnya 77 tahun. Tapi, beda sama engkong-engkong diluar sana yang mungkin umur segini udah nggak kuat ngapa-ngapain, engkong saya adalah orang yang cukup up-to-date. Karna udah nggak kerja, jadi kerjaannya setiap hari itu baca koran, nonton berita (dari berita olahraga, dunia, nasional, sampai infotainment juga engkong saya nonton), baca novel-novel (Jengis Khan, Godfather, Agatha Christie, dll), belanja di pasar, kadang juga jemput adek saya ke sekolah.

Nah, engkong saya ini yang selalu saya tanyain kalo ada isu-isu yang saya nggak ngerti, ketinggalan, atau saya nggak tertarik untuk baca di koran. He can answer every questions that I give. Dia juga suka nasehatin saya,


"Kamu harus rajin baca koran, gi. Biar tau, apa yang lagi terjadi di luar sana."


Hari ini, detik ini juga, saya jadi mikirin kata-katanya itu. Mungkin, kalo nggak ada engkong, saya bisa jadi katak dalam tempurung. Terisolasi dari dunia luar, cuma bisa "menangisi" nasib Indonesia yang diambang jurang, nggak ngerti apa yang harus dilakuin. Kalo nggak ada engkong, saya bisa jadi adalah salah satu dari lebih dari separo orang yang akan menjawab seperti yang di atas itu , waktu ditanya soal solusi.



Nah, setelah diingetin sama engkong saya itu, saya mau mem"forward" peringatan engkong saya ke kamu-kamu.


Gimana kita bisa ubah Indonesia yang katanya menyedihkan itu kalo kita aja nggak tau apa yang terjadi di sekitar kita.
Gimana masa depan negara kita bisa cerah, kalo kita nggak peduli sama keadaan sekarang ini.

Kalian juga tau kan, apa kata orang-orang dewasa soal generasi muda. Kita dibilang penghancur masa depan lah, menyedihkan lah, dan lalala yang jelek-jelek itu. Gimana kita bisa ngebuktiin kalo kata-kata mereka itu salah, kalo kita-nya nggak berusaha apa-apa?



Kita bisa mulai dengan satu langkah pertama yang simple dan mudah : Baca Koran.

Ini dia Engkong &saya, waktu si engkong ulang tahun ke 77, 05/05/2009
Engkong saya selalu mikir kalo dia mirip Brad Pitt. Hahaha, may God bless him ;)

SUMMER TRIP (day 2)

Day 1 was over yesterday, and now I'm posting about the very next day. I remembered exactly how long was that day. It felt like forever and I was walking on foot for THE ENTIRE DAY.




Well, I took MRTs for some minutes, but hey. To reach the destination, you still need to walk, walk, and walk. No wonder Singaporeans have beautiful legs. They spend their times by walking, walking, and walking.



Okay back to the topic. At the first night, we stayed in Orchard. However, for the next days we were moving to novena. Oh gosh, the distance between the flat and the MRT station is damn far, and when you were walking after a whole day, you would feel like it was from jakarta to bandung.



On that day, we spent the whole day visiting recreation sites. the first one is Jurong Bird Park.
Here's some shots I got:









1) On the way there, at Boon Lay MRT station. bike to shop, how greeeen.


2) A bird was having lunch. Yummm


3) Flamingo lagoon



4) Unknown kiddo was hungraaay.






After that, we went back to the MRT station, and departing to the next destination: MINT museum of toys! I got the info from my friend adeline, that this museum was incredible. So we decided to go there.



However, it was so difficult to find the location of the museum. We got lost, and we tried to ask to every singaporean we met. Unfortunately, only few people knew where it is. Even a security didn't know where it is. Then we walked through Seah Street, where the museum is supposed to be. Finally we found it! Well, it IS small. and it IS incredible!



Here's some amazing toys I've found there:

1) Batman. 2) The seven dwarfs. 3) TIN TIN 4) Mickey Mouse (early years). 5) Buck Rogers. 6) Ultraman. 7) Michael Lee. 8) The Beatles!


And there are more amazing toys from time to time. totally recommended for toys lovers!





After that, we went to raffles place. merlion park, fullerton hotel, esplanade, and flowing with Singapore river. That's what every tourists does when visiting singapore. Soo common.

Yup, that's the pic.

1) Asian Civilisation Museum. 2) Esplanade, Theatre on the bay. 3) Clarke Quay, one of the busiest place. 4) The Fullerton Hotel, the oldest hotel in Singapore. 5) Merlion Park. 6) Singapore flyer.


Well, people. That's the end of day 2.

SUMMER TRIP (day 1)

I'm so sorry for updating about my summer trip this late. Yeah actually I went on this trip in last June, but I had no time to report about it. So here it goes now!

Last June, my family and I went to Singapore. Believe it or not, it's my first overseas trip, as I had never been out of my beloved country, Indonesia. And believe it or not (Again), Singapore is going to be my residence for the next four years. Fyi, I got a scholarship for studying there for four years.


It started at 25th June, and ended at 30th. On the day before, my parents had just bought me new dslr! So I experimented in Singapore, without finishing reading the manual book. haha. Yet still, I've got some shots. Enjoy!


Day 1


1) A girl and her mum at Soekarno Hatta, busy with her shoelaces, perhaps.
2) They're trash cans, baby. So wonderfully created, aint they?
3) An anonymous man captured while waiting in Changi Airport.
4) Perfect reflection of one of Changi Airport entrance. yikes.
5) Say what. I stayed for a night at Lucky plaza apartment, Orchard. In the opposite of the road, lies Wisma Atria, one of famous and classy shopping center.

Aaaand there goes Day 1.

The next-next day will be posted in a moment. Make sure you stay tuned ;)

(cont'd)

I'm a not so good blogger.

I know I'm not a very good blogger, people. Yeah, a good one will update their blog routinely. I update my blog based on my mood. Sheeesh how bad I am.

However, I've got some quite good reasons why I don't update my blog routinely.



First, I have some pretty heavy weeks on my course. Dammit, It tortures me a lot with loads of homework, quizes, and difficult chapters. It feels like hell as I'm not a very good learner. The worst week ever is this week. I've got three effing difficult quizes, lotsa-lotsa-lotsa homework, and yesterday there's a super boring workshop about mind-maping.


The second reason is that my parents don't allow me to use the internet on weekdays. Don't ask me why, for they have their own reason. Some of my pals suggested me to just play, as my parents won't discover it (they're working from morning to at least seven pm). Dang! I can't do that. Maybe my parents won't see it, but my sisters will tell them as soon as they're home!

Well you can't blame my sis. They wanna play as much as I do. That's why they won't let me play, as I won't let them either ;p


And the third is that I become more interested in microblogging sites. Yep, twitter. Have you got one? Then we should follow each other! If you haven't, make one. Trust me, it's fun!

here's my tweeting account egigigi




That was all. I'm so sorry for being a bad-bad-bad blogger. Well, you can't expect too much from a teenager (;


and lastly, I just wanna tell you that recently I design something for IYC-Indonesian Youth Conference. I really really hope they like it. here it is


please comment through my chatbox whether you like it or not. thankies (:

things running in my life

awwww long time no see bloggers! belakangan ini mood gue untuk berblogging ria dikalahkan dengan telak sama mood twitteran.


oiya sekalian promosi: add twitter sayaaa http://twitter.com/egigigi



sekadar info, hari-hari di ignatius makin menggila. guru mat kimia nya diganti sekarang. tadinya gue pikir, kalo guru cewe kan lebih manusiawi, lebih alus, lebih sabar, dan lebih yang bagus-bagus lainnya. dan hari-hari di ignatius akan (sedikit) lebih baik.



but hell, you can't get everything you want in this world, baby.



dan ditambah lagi dengan sejumlah anak yang selalu bertingkah bagaikan mereka adalah raja dan ratu yang bisa ngelakuin anything they want, hari hari gue pun otomatis menjadi bunch of craps.



akan tetapi namanya kehidupan (cieelah), pasti ada jeleknya, juga ada bagusnya dong. dan bagusnya emang ga setengah-setengah yeaaay.


akhirnya kemaren-kemaren gue ngajakin temen temen sekelas gue buat jalan ke sms.
dan jumat kemaren akhirnya jadi lhooooo. dari jam tiga sampe malem.
hmm ada harlin, andrew, cia, davina, ica, ryan, nando, hebron, kefas, said, luna, memel, bule, rae, reggy, ricky, ili, sk, eva, dan gueeee


awwww asyik banget kemaren. dan yang bikin gue terharu, beberapa dari mereka tuh kayak berkorban gitu buat dateng. (well, meskipun mereka happy lah ya, jalan-jalan haha)
contohnya,

si harlin yang sekolah di smuki bolos ekskul demi jalan ke sms.
si andrew, eva, luna bela-belain abis selese ekskul langsung ngebut ke sms
si cia, meskipun jam lima ada les, dia tetep dateng awawaw
si kefas mestinya ada sekolah sulap di wtc (dia ngotot ga mau dibilang ngeles sulap, sekolah pokoknya.), bela-belain bolos demi jalan jalan.

dan yang paling lucu,


si ica yang ada ekskul badminton tapi kepingin dateng, heboh nanya ke kakak kelasnya,

"ci, gurunya dateng ga?"
"enggak tuh, ga dateng"

begitu tau kalo gurunya ga dateng, dia meninggalkan barang-barang bawaannya di sekolah dan langsung lari (bener-bener LARI) ke sms.
jam setengah lima dia balik lagi ke sekolah pulang, dan menemukan kalo gurunya ternyata dateng dan dia ditipu abis-abisan sama kakak kelasnya.


meskipun kemaren bisa dibilang ga ngapa-ngapain, cuma makan dan keluyuran di timezone, we still had so much fun together. ketawa-ketawa ngeliatin si sk main pump, nontonin cowo-cowo main sulap super konyol, pokoknya, anything they did was incredibly hilarious!



and that makes me feel sad to leave them all ):



last but not least, yesterday was one of the best day of my life! thanks banget yaaah buat kalian kalian. i love you guys so much (x
