This is beyond sanity.
I think I have lost my mind, friends. In case you didn't follow me on Twitter, you might not know the fact that I'm heels over head for Bruno Mars. I tweeted him for almost everyday and there's not a day I spent without listening to his music. I think he is just pure talent and awesomeness in one pack.
When I first listened to his songs, I thought he was great but I didn't really pay attention about it. It was about less than one month ago that one of the most popular concert promotor announced that Bruno Mars is going to perform in Indonesia on 5th of April. I went crazy about it because I thought he was worth-watching and the ticket itself weren't so pricey. I decided to watch his videos on youtube and I FELL IN LOVE!! He was so talented and he have such an adorable personality. Two of my friends and I agreed to buy the ticket, but unfortunately the day the ticket went on sale clashed with the Chinese New Year, which is impossible for us to skip because it is an important day. I was a little sad but I think about buying the tickets from other person who had queue for it, though it cost us much more than the original price. Went through a lot of trouble and we are so close to giving up. But God is good, He eventually let us met a person who wants to sell the tickets with the budget we have set.
I can't wait till 5th of April and I'm praying hard nothing would happen, because I'd be heart-crushed if the concert was cancelled.
I really think it is hard not to fall for him. Every words that came out of his mouth makes whimsical magic and he plays a lot of instrument too. Not to mention how great he praise women with his songs.
This video below is one of my favorite and it's actually where I fell in love for this man. He remixed the famously know song 'Nothing On You' and it turned out really good.
One more thing. I was so in love with this man, I even decided to buy his album because I just felt that falling so hard for a musician and not buying his original album is just wrong. Though I've downloaded the whole album (illegally, from the internet) I still think his album is worth-buying.
He's so addictive like a drug. What I love the most from him, aside his voice is, how he flirt with ladies and make them (and me) go all crazy and scream our heart out loud like fan-girls. It is so impossible for me not to fall in love over and over every time I watch his videos or hear his incredibly awesome voice!!!
I SEVERELY NEED HELP :(

Another post after so long!! Never been a good blogger, at all, I have to admit. I honestly would say that I'm a lazy ass. Didn't really save some time just to write things that happened recently with some few words, just to keep things up, you know. But things were easier said in my Twitter.
So, here I am. Sitting with a stomachache I've been having since yesterday due to my period. You have no idea how much I suffer yesterday, having to climb up the stairs to my class with this torture in my belly.
I'm losing my point.
Since there are only four of my best friends left in school, our bond became stronger. One of our favorite thing to do is to have a night out together and try new places to eat. We recently visited Jackrabbit, this new restaurant that was opened recently but got a pretty big hit and it's quite famous now. We thought, why not try it out and we can be snob that we've tried it before most of our other friends. Muahahahaha!! (This is an evil laugh)
Took a lot of photos and I thought of sharing it here. Sneak in a bit consumer's review, too :)
Review: The place itself wasn't bad at all. The atmosphere was perfect. Met a lot of familiar people and socialites. But I'd say the food was just average, nothing special at all. didn't order any desserts but the waitress did recommend us the Melt Chocolate Cake. My personal favorite was the Fish and Chips in the last photo (sorry, didn't rotate it). The pasta was very average, the fish we ordered came up with some sort of odd-tasting pickles. Overall, I would say:
I'M A SENIOR NOW!!!!!!!
Yes, people. I'm a 12 grader and on the upper cast of the whole pyramid. This is sad since it all comes down to 4 of us. I remember when there are 8 of us, sitting at the side of basketball field, eating our lunch. But then, when I remember that we're going to have our trip to Bali (this time, the whole 12th grade) it somehow gives me strength. And I got a fun class with many active Tweoples!
It's been two weeks since our first day, but pretty much things have happened. And most of it are fun and gossips and pointless talks. Though the teacher have warned us to be more serious due to the Government Test, we don't take pressure of it. We manage to balance it pretty much well.
..Somehow, I gotta feeling that 12 grade is gonna be fun and memorable :)
AAAHHHHHHHH two weekends away from new semester!! This have been the MOST unproductive holiday I've ever had. I even haven't cleaned up my cupboard from last year's books and junks. My 30 days of holiday can be sum up to 4 words; sleep, eat, TV and Internet. Splendid.
Among all those 4 activities, I should say Internet gives me more happiness after food. I was doing my regular activities on Internet such us feeling fed up with Twitter's fail whale, bored on Facebook, blank on Looklet, blablabla you get my point. So I headed to Youtube and I saw that America's Got Talent is holding some sort of Youtube auditions. This immediately reminds me of Susan Boyle.
Well, in case you got locked in the bathroom for the entire year of 2009 or just like being the last one to know, I'm gonna refresh your memory. Susan Boyle is the runner up of Britain's Got Talent 2009, who stunned everybody with her performance. She was 47 when she went for audition and everybody were being cynical and under estimating her because of her look. But, BAM! she started singing and everybody change their mind.
I can't find the video to embed in here, so click here to watch the video.
These are the expression they made when she said she's 47, dreaming to be a professional singer as good as Eileen Page.
And.. Look how surprised they are. The expressions are priceless :)
Have you ever been under estimated? Some people are stuck in stereotypes and their own idealism, they can't see what's beneath the cover. Well, I'm gonna tell you something. When people lower their expectation on you because they don't think you'll make it, it's your time to shine. Surprised them, do something that they have never expected you can do. You'll enjoy every moment seeing their expression, just like in the video. Don't let people let you down for any reason, there is always something inside every each one of you. You might not have find out what you're best at, but you will. Do your best, you'll be surprised of what you can do.

"nothing takes the flavor out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love"
You know, Raditya Dika have just launched his new book titled Marmut Merah Jambu (which is, frankly, a quite weird title)
To be honest, I'm not much into Indonesian comedy novels because the image of Indonesian modern literature doesn't attract me much since it has been been contaminated with sex jokes and cliché ending, which is mostly, happily ever after. But this book has been given good reviews and I personally followed the author himself on Twitter and BANG, I found myself sitting with a glass of milk and lots of snack while holding the book. At first, I expect this book not to fail to make me laugh, since everybody have been saying that this book is hilarious. Well, it fails. I cried. It was really out of my expectation, there are irony, comedy, honesty, and mostly, LOVE.
The book itself is very much different than the other, though his signature comedy style is still very much there. My personal favorite chapters were 'Pertemuan Terakhir Dengan Ina Mangunkusumo' and 'How I Meet You, Not Your Mother'
'Pertemuan Terakhir Dengan Ina Mangunkusumo' tells the story of him and an unrequited love. The quote above were quoted from this chapter, which is my favorite. He described briefly the little details which is very touching for a man to pay that much attention. I've heard lots and lots of love stories, for I am a book worm and a movie addict. But this is one of a story that give me that little quiver in my heart. This is the part where I cried. The irony is just unbearable, bitter and hurtful, even though sprinkled with a little comedy. I can feel his deep sadness upon his unrequited love. This chapter makes me cried, smiled and remember all at the same time. And for me, a story that makes me laugh and cried at the same time is much more than best.
'How I meet You, Not Your Mother' is actually a very very very sweet and witty way to describe the union of two humans. Once again, I'm touched by irony. What really embittered the story is that, the couple have broke up not long before the book is released. How he briefly told the readers about their relationship, makes me smile. I love how he spit things out without being afraid. He once said in this chapter that, 'For other people, they see me as a clown, but for you, I show you the human.'
Wow. I was a amazed. He showed the reader that beneath one self, is another true one self. Humor have been a mask used by lots of people. Expecting someone to be how they usually be is wrong. When you're getting serious, expect nothing. You'll be suprised by what you might get.
Oh well, this book is great in every way.
Hello people, I'm posting again. I know I'm not a good blogger, it's been ages since my last post. But things were easier said in my Twitter though 140 characters is never enough. Ah, I'm losing my point here.
Everybody hates goodbyes. Especially when you live your hello to the happiest, with the beloved ones. But every hello ends with goodbye and that is one thing for sure. I have successfully passed 11 grade, where tons of memories are made in that particular class. There are good and bad, sad and smiles, sorrow and merry laughter, friendship and problems but things could never be any spicier without it. Frankly, my class was not the best of all 6 classes, but everything in it manage to sit in my heart labelled with the sweetest memories.
I wish I could state everything that had happened in my class but one year of fun stuff can't be told even in the most complicated vocabulary. I remember the days when the teacher didn't came in to class and we gather round to form a circle and talk about stuff, many many stuff. The times when we went to places in the name of school task can never any funner. Our trip, though were not nicely planned, ended up good. But anywhere is good with the right guys. We set up birthday surprises for each other, cakes, candles and pictures are always involved, and we mostly ended up making a big mess in the class.
A wise once said "There are always two side of a coin" and that's true. When there's good, there's bad too. I honestly would say my class have problems and conflicts. My class was kinda divided into two parts, the front group and the back group. Yes, I believe you can pretty well guessed that the back group are stamped with the label 'troublemaker' and that was a bit true. I kind of belong to the back group because we were slowly formed by our seat position, but all of the good things happened above were experienced with those people. I won't state the conflicts that happened inside but there are troubles.
I'm going to 12th grade in a few weeks, which means a new class, new people, new experience and new hello. Some of my friends are going to study overseas and two of them are my best-est and another two is going for early college. Another hurtful goodbye to be said. But mark my words, I don't care if time and space separate us because there is no time long enough and distance far enough to break the fact that true friendship last forever. I know that was freakin' cliché and you might think I stolen it from some saying cards, but no. That's pure original, FYI. Okay, that's it. I ran out of things to say.
I can still remember our hello. Can't believe it's time for Goodbye...
Oh thanks God I can sign in to Blog!! I don't know what the hell is happening, but either my laptop or my Internet connection won't let me to open Facebook, nor Twitter, nor Looklet, nor signing me in to MSN! Imagine it, huh? So, here I am blabbering back to you guys who care enough to open my blog. 1:29am now, with Feeling Sorry by Paramore on Now Playing. Let's see what can we do now. Hmm..
This is a big issue lately around my school. Since I'm on the 11th grade and getting closer to University/College, we are very concerned about which path which will led us to the best future. Sure, we all want a good, easy and happy future, but there's nothing that good in this life. Back to the path, some of my friends are still confused and have no idea what they should take. Advices like, "Follow your heart" or "What do you like the most?" or "What's your talent?" are very non-effective since they themselves have no answer to that. I truly understand their condition because I've had the very same problem like that few months ago. Thanks God, He had shown me my interest in Fashion Business :)
I know there's nothing easy especially when you're getting older and getting closer to real world out there. It's your future you're betting here. Once you take a wrong step, everything will be different. No pressure :)
But I'm really serious here. There's no time to sit back and relax now. You are about to take the first steps to your whole future ahead. My only advice to you is, to really really dig deep inside yourself to find out who your truly self is. Browse a lot, observe much, try everything as long as you can. You are responsible for your own future and you can't make others choose what's best for you. There is no way God created you for nothing the day He made you. You have to be something if God have given you a chance to live now.
And for you who already know exactly what you want and having obstacles with it, I pray the best for you. Go for it, nothing can stop you from reaching your own future, it's YOUR life you're living now and tomorrow. Don't let go your dreams and interest where you're best at, you don't want to feel sorry for yourself in the future, do you? When God have given you something to be good at, HE must have plans for you with it.
And to conclude my sloppy blabbering, I found this great quote by John M. Richardson.
“When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.”
Which one are you?
See you in the good future!! :D
