Let me know...

What is the hardest thing to say to someone?

Is it, I Love You?

or

Is it, I am sorry?

Sorry seems to be the hardest word

After settled it down with my friend, I gave my word to delete the posts from my blog.

So I would say thank you all for the comments, I really appreciate it. Your comments have made me think in a different point of view.

This is the good intention from us, as we still want to be friends and hopefully what has happened will make each of us a better and mature person and hopefully can make our friendship stronger and more valuable.




There is song from Elton John called "Sorry seems to be the hardest word"...
Well.. the song is not quite fit with my situation but yeah I agree with him that sorry seems to be the hardest word..

Why is it so hard?

Because it comes from the heart, if it doesn't come from the heart it doesn't mean a damn thing.

But when you finally be able to say it, it feels good. It doesn't mean that you are wrong or lose by saying sorry..

Clarification

Thanks for all your comments on my posts here and here. So before all of you had wrong impression about me, especially Anonymous who gave me hard comments but still coward to hide behind Anonymous name :p

Yes, I mad at my friend, you all have read about it in my blog. But I've settled down with her, I apologized to her for being mad at her and we talked about the issues and we are good now.. (Anonymous.. send me your number so I can text you our conversation). Not just because in my religion we're not allowed to be mad at people more than 3 days, but I also felt that my reaction was based on sensitive mood thanks to PMS. No, I'm not trying to find any excuse and justification, but for you women out there you will understand what I'm talking about. And yes, we are mature women whom can talk about this issue directly, even though we need times to cooling down our selves.

I've been planning to post that I finally settled it down with my girlfriend but been caught up with parties during this Xmas holiday, so I haven't have time to do it. Now, I'm proudly say that we're good and we have settle it down.

And one more thing, I'm mature enough to take any criticism.. approved Anonymous comments is one of the proof, right ;)

Just for fun

You Are a Plain Ole Cup of Joe

But don't think plain - instead think, uncomplicated
You're a low maintenance kind of girl... who can hang with the guys
Down to earth, easy going, and fun! Yup, that's you: the friend everyone invites.
And your dependable too. Both for a laugh and a sympathetic ear.


Your Lucky Underwear is Green

You're a total go getter who will scrape and crawl to get to the top. And your lucky green underwear will help you get there without a struggle.
A fast learner, you enjoy a good mental challenge - whether it's getting your law degree or running a successful business.

Sometimes you push too hard to succeed, alienating friends and wearing yourself out in the process.
If you want to reach your goals while still maintaining a full life, put on your green underpants. They'll help you slow down and enjoy life.


You Should Be a Social Worker

You are deeply caring and empathetic.
You are able to take on other people's problems as if they were your own.
Sensitive and intuitive, you understand human emotions well.
Helping others gives you the most joy in life. You feel like it's your purpose in life.

You do best when you:

- Have a lot of responsibility
- Greatly impact someone's life with your work

You would also be a good philanthropist or stay at home parent.


You Probably Look Younger Than Your Age

You live a healthy lifestyle and know how to take care of yourself.
You'll probably have a youthful glow for many years.


Your Spicy Score: Medium

You are hot enough to make a lasting impression, but you strike a balance.
You know when you're being too fiery, and you also know when to bump up the temperature.
Naughty and clever. Sexy yet down to earth. You know how to work both sides of your personality.
Men find you hot yet approachable - the perfect combination!

Old friend?

Ex-friend?

What is the different between friend and best friend?

Indonesia scurries to fix blunder in new campaign

News taken from SMH.com.au The Sidney Morning Herald


A grammatical error in
Indonesia's new 2008 tourism campaign - splashed across aeroplanes and television advertisements - is to be fixed, a tourism ministry official said Wednesday.

The new slogan of the "Visit Indonesia 2008" campaign reads: "Celebrating 100 years of nation's awakening." "Nation's", in correct English, should read either "national" or be preceded by a definite article.

The awkward phrase is already plastered across the flagship carrier Garuda Indonesia's A330 planes - which were inaugurated by the tourism minister Jero Wacik last week - and appears on websites and in a TV advertisement.

Ministry officials were not immediately available for comment.

But an emailed message asking about the mistake received this response from Khrisnamurti, the ministry website's content administrator: "We have now been made fully aware of the English-language grammatical mistake in the VIY2008 logo and it will be rectified immediately."

The 1908 event referred to in the slogan was the founding by medical students of "Boedi Oetomo", or "Noble Endeavour," the first nationalist group in the then Dutch-ruled colony - a fact few foreigners would know.

Indonesia declared independence in 1945.

The campaign comes as Indonesia struggles to attract tourists relative to its Southeast Asian neighbours. The archipelago nation, which has endured a series of terror bombings, natural disasters and health scares, recorded a 2.38 per cent drop in foreign tourist arrivals to four million in 2006.

Neighbouring Malaysia attracted nearly 18 million the same year while Thailand lured nearly 14 million.

Indonesia boasts an array of attractions and varied cultures across its 17,000 islands, but the focal point of tourism remains the Hindu enclave of Bali.

Maybe the tourism board should hire English native to avoid this kind of thing. Such a waste of time and money to re-do all the materials, and it's embarrassing as well.

Just want to know...


What makes a person is a better person/ human being than others?

Thursday, December 06, 2007

Infidelity




The action of being unfaithful to one's sexual partner

Is it belong to men only?

Is it a need? Because you can't spend your life with only one partner.

Is it the latest trend?

Is it a lifestyle?

Is it a fun thing to do?

Why do people doing it?

Why do people keep doing it?

What makes them keep doing it?

If the Lust turned out to be Love, is it still infidelity?

The right thing to say

Had YM conversation at 1 am with my ex colleague, she informed me that she's single again...

Another divorce story from someone I know.

Honestly, I don't know how to react when I heard the news, and I just said politely "I'm sorry to hear that, are you Ok?"

If you hear the news about someone passed away, you probably will say condolence "I'm sorry and bla bla bla bla....", you will said it instantly without any hesitation or thinking hard what to say.

But if you hear someone just divorced what is the right thing to say?

Maybe the right thing to say is sorry but what if the divorce debutante doesn't feel sorry at all, maybe they feel relieved or free or even happier with the new situation.

Corruption around us


I’ve heard a lot about these kinds of stories, and I finally hear it again from the 1st person.


Last Friday, a friend of mine just came back from Korea and when she check in at the custom & immigrations there’s a guy asking for money under the table, the guy asks for USD, when my friend said she doesn’t have USD, the guy said he accepts Korean money as well… in fact, he accepts any amount of money she has, oh dear…

My friend insisted that she doesn’t have any cash as she just landed, but the guy keeps asking for money. And when the guy check out her passport, the guy’s face blushed with embarrassment, because my friend has diplomatic VISA on her passport as her husband is one of many diplomats who works in Indonesia.

And fortunately not for long, the husband came along with his magic card (diplomatic pass) to pick up his wife. That guy is so busted!

So the story spreads to all of her husband’s colleagues (embassy people). And being Indonesian, I am so ashamed of what that guy did.

Airport is like the face of the country, the part you will see first before you see the rest of the country.

I’m sure, there are corruptions in each country, but at least they play it smartly, not asking for money to all the foreigners/visitor who just landed.

Wondering when people will change....

Visit Indonesia 2008

TV Commercial teaser for the upcoming Visit Indonesia Year 2008.

Indonesia tourism promotion program for the year 2008 by The Ministry of Culture and Tourism Republic of Indonesia.

TVC VO (voice over):
"The sound of invitation is rising, waiting for you to come... It's time for you to visit Indonesia"

Although we have bigger issues rather than only a nice TV Commercial, but I think this is a good start.

Well done to Octovate & 25 Frames team.

Keep up the positive attitude folks!

Is it the end or the beginning?

I have attended 2 weddings on last weekend and another 4 coming on December, what a busy schedule.

And again the usual question will be popped up by friends
"so when is your big day?", "don't be too long in a relationship lah, just ended you journey by marrying him/her" errrrr.....

Something tickles me, why people think marriage is the end of the journey?

I would agree if they say it as the end of a single life, but it's not the end of the life journey.
I think, marriage is just the beginning of another journey, beginning of another phase of life.

Talked to a friend couple days ago and asked her question whether she feels that her life is complete now after married and deliver a cute baby boy, but she said she didn't quite feel that way.
She just feels composed, as she has achieved some of her goals, but then she has to achieve another goals like how to raise my boy to be a better person than his parents, can I raise him the way I want him to, can I support him for whatever he wants in life, can I always be by his side until the day he married and so many questions and goals to be achieved.

Witnessing so many divorces in my close circle and society, makes me believe that marriage is only the beginning of another phase of life not the end, until you spend the rest of your life only with him/her and you literally close your eye when the death comes on his/her arm.

Movember

You want to know why I put up this guy's photo?

And what is Movember?

Movember - Changing the face of Men's Health

Movember the month formerly known as November is a charity event held during November each year.
At the start of Movember guys register with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants known as Mo Bros then have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their moustache and along the way raise as much money and awareness about male health issues as possible.

The obvious question is why?

The answer is because men lack awareness about the very real health issue they face, have an "eveything's okay" attitude and are reluctant to see a doctor about an illness or to go for regular medical checks.

The aim of Movember is to change these attitudes, make male health fun by putting the Mo back on the face of fashion and in the process raise some serious funds for key male health issues.

And why moustache?

Because moustache is not a fashion trend nowadays, so all the Mo Bros are willing to answer a lot of questions from people why he grows a moustache, willing to receive pro and cons about his moustache, accept what people say about his new appearance with moustache such as "you look older with that moustache" or "you look like Tom Selleck (means famous celebrity back then, yeah back back then)", "you look like Pak Raden (famous Indonesian character in the 80s)" accept the reality that he can not kiss his girlfriend without her giggles every time he does that.

Yeah, the Mo Bros are willing to live like that for the whole month in the name of good cause and to help his other brothers in the future.

For more detail information check this out and to sponsor his Mo click to this and enter registration no: 166636, it's time to give your money for good cause.

It's Friday!

It's time to let go all the stress...


It's time to enjoy the short break....

It's time to enjoy this drink...

It's time to hang out with your loved ones...

Let's hope that the traffic jam isn't so bad... Ah, Jakarta, Friday night + rain is hell

Where did my passion go?

Passion, obsession, infatuation, excitement, enthusiasm, love, desire, fascination, emotion, rage, mania.....

All of above are the words that I got when I look up at the dictionary for word "Passion".

I used to be very passionate with my work, I put my heart in to it, I love it, I love the dynamic pace, I like the creative ideas, I like the process (even though sometimes bleeding), and the pressure sometimes really high and not to mention about the long hours, but still... I love my work.

I don't know how it starts, but suddenly I realize it's just gone. What I do know is just work to get the job done, no heart on my work, it's just the job.

I have asked my self lots of questions about this, is it the office environment? is it the client? is it the team? is it the whole industry? or what?

Honestly, I don't know the answer, could be the office environment as being the only ATL
team in the activation agency is tough, or maybe because being dedicated team for this client is not challenging enough for me, or maybe because I have problem with this creative person and it starts to become personal.

I know, should not mix business with personal but I can not help it. I really hate people who is nice in front of me but act in opposite at my back, if you have problem with me, talk to me directly, don't be a back stabber!

I want to have the passion of my work, I want to feel the same way as used to be, I want to put my heart into my work.

If o
ne of you who read this blog knows how to bring back the passion, please let me know coz I desperately need it.

Then came along the million dollar questions, does my passion will comeback if I move to other company? Or I will feel the same way but in different environment?
Or maybe even a big step, try the whole new industry aside of advertising? Will it bring my passion back?

For the time being, I don't know the answer.

Bule (Caucasian) Guy Dating Indonesian Girl

Got this article from my girl friend Anita, and she even wrote something about it in her blog. I just don't understand why people are bitching around about this thing. Some say that most of Indonesian Girls are looking for money because they are willing to be with 60 years old Caucasian man, these Indonesian Girls are willing to do anything to get a better life and get a chance to travel around the world with this Caucasian boyfriend.

That phenomenon is not only belongs to Caucasian Guy and Indonesian Girl, it also happens with Indonesian Guy and Indonesian Girl. Maybe we don't see it much between Indonesian Guy and Indonesian Girl is because this Old Indonesian Guy is doing it secretly, because they're usually married man. We know that some of Old Bapak-bapak pejabat married this young Indonesian Girl, but we don't care that much about them.

Well, yes some relationships between Caucasian Guy and Indonesian Girl are not working as it should be, some met scumbags Caucasian Men, and some experienced a broken heart because of this Caucasian Men, but some also found their true love in Caucasian Men like this girl who now lives happy with her husband in Aberdeen.

What if, this Indonesian Girl has found her true love in her 60 years old Caucasian husband? Do people really care that this is not just about the money, there is some feeling involve here, and even if yes this Indonesian Girl married this Caucasian Guy for his money, so be it. People has freedom to do whatever they want and who are we to judge them.

For me, it's just the matter of taste and preference. What's wrong if we find the attraction in this opposite skin tone human being? I believe we choose the person, not the skin tone.

How about we reverse the situation,
Bule (Caucasian) Woman Dating Indonesian Man.

Do people still bitch around about that? I don't think so.


And how about Old Bule (Caucasian) Woman Dating Young Indonesian Man.

Do people really pay attention to that?


Again, there are only 2 people in the relationship. Whatever their reasons to be in that relationship, it's their choice and their own business.

I got a good tip today from my colleague on how to wear contact lens, I'll try to transfer this knowledge to this man, hopefully this tip can help him up and to avoid tension relationship between this man and the contact lens

I always offer to help but this is the thing that he has to do it by him self.. So what I can say is practice makes perfect :)

Good luck Babe!

The Pursuit of Happyness

I was disappointed after watch this movie, heard from people and some of my friends that this is a good movie.

This movie was reflected that people are not happy because they are poor, successfully showed by Thandie Newton's tight face and she finally walks away from Will Smith because He's poor. And at the end of the movie Will Smith is happy because He has successfully become one of the stock broker in Wall Street, well that means He makes money and rich.

My bf was told me that He had different experience back then when He was young and work as door to door salesman, the people in poor neighborhood usually looks happy and friendly but the people from rich neighborhood always looks stiff, stressful and unfriendly.

Maybe people from poor neighborhood can find happiness in other things than only money such as family, love, togetherness, friends.

People say money can't buy happiness, but why people can smile more often if they have money?

Magic


You may not pay attention to this thing, you may even doesn't know that this thing is exist.. But surely this thing is magic.

Well, it is magic for me. I'm not the kind of person who is good in cook.. I cook simple thing, and this thing is my life safer.

Just add a little bit of this thing into whatever you're cooking, then your cook will be tasty. Happened to me couple of times, tried to impress my bf by cook him kwetiaw goreng for dinner and I added a spoon of this thing and voila.. He said my kwetiaw goreng is tasty :D.

Just like last night when I cook some vegetables to accompany his tuna pasta, the veggie is tasty and the magic ingredient is this thing.


Whoever invented this thing should get any reward, coz it's magic!

This magic thing called Oyster Sauce :)

Kapan?

Kapan? Sebenarnya adalah pertanyaan biasa yang sering dilontarkan orang.

Misalnya:

- kapan meetingnya?

- kapan dating?

- kapan makannya nih ngobrol terus?

Ya, kapan adalah sebuah kata yang biasa dan sering digunakan sehari-hari. Tapi pertanyaan kapan bisa jadi suatu pertanyaan yang mengganggu kalau di ikuti dengan:

-Kapan giliran loe nyusul ke pelaminan? Jangan sampe keduluan si anu loh

-Kapan kawin? Pacaran terus ntar keburu tua

-Kapan mau nambah anak kedua?

-Kapan mau pindah dari rumah orang tua?

-Kapan bisa berdiri sendiri gak tergantung sama orang lain?

Pertanyaan kapan diatas cukup mengganggu buat orang yang bersangkutan.
Kenapa? Karena pertanyaan kapan diatas itu adalah pertanyaan yang sangat pribadi.

Punya pacar tetap yang udah berlangsung cukup lama pasti akan mengundang pertanyaan “kapan menikah?” dari orang-orang sekitar. Bukan berarti orang yang bersangkutan nggak mikirin nikah, semua orang pasti ingin menikah eventually karena kita adalah mahluk social yang butuh orang lain. Tapi menikah itu gak berasal dari satu orang aja, it takes two to tango, kalo yang satu ngerasa siap tapi yang satunya ngerasa belum siap ya gak akan kejadian juga dong…. Dan lagi menikah itu bukan hal yang gampang, perlu kesiapan mental lahir batin dan juga materi, some people say “cinta aja gak cukup kuat untuk bikin pernikahan langgeng dijaman yang udah makin edan ini, ada banyak hal yang harus dipersiapkan”

Pertanyaan “kapan menikah?” akan sangat mengganggu kalau kita lagi gak punya pacar, tapi tetap menganggu juga walaupun kita punya pacar karena itu adalah pertanyaan yang sangat pribadi, even my mom wouldn’t dare to ask that question to me.

Kenapa sangat mengganggu pertanyaan tsb? Karena pertanyaan itu akan create pressure pada orang yang bersangkutan. Pressure gak cuma dialami oleh single person tapi someone with partner will feel pressure dari pertanyaan tsb

Menikah is not a game, menikah is not a race so people please stop ask that question to other people.

Happy Birthday

Happy birthday to my dearest brother...

May you rest in peace, my pray always be with you :)

Sushi oh sushi

I love sushi
I can eat sushi one week in a row and still enjoy it, not my boyfriend though. He doesn't want to eat sushi after 3 days in a row we had sushi as out lunch :))

The last time I had sushi was Sunday night, yes I break my fast with sushi woooohooo it's delicious yum.. I almost lost my hope to eat there after see the waiting list, oh my God it's like everybody want to eat sushi at the same time :(. And when I look around people who are queuing and people eating inside mostly are not people who are fasting, how do I know that? I can tell from their skin tone :))

It's not that I against them or I hate them but c'mon lah they can eat at anytime they want during the day and why they choose same time as our break fast? This is the time that we have been waiting for, the time that we finally can eat and drink after fasting for almost 14 hours. When I'm not fasting I will do the same, I will wait until the time for break fast passed because I want to let people whom are fasting break their fast first, I can wait but why those people can't?

I don't ask something that really hard to do, I only ask people who are not fasting to give a little bit of respect to people who are fasting by letting them break their fast first by not come to the resto at that specific time so that people can break their fast on time.

Trivia Question

Situation 1 - Cinema

What would you do if someone who sits next to you keep talking and make comments during the movie?

Tuesday, July 03, 2007

Buat kamu si Annonymous....

Begini ya...

Apa yang saya lakukan dan baju apa yang saya pakai adalah bukan urusan kamu, tolong di catet ya itu bukan bra tapi bikini... gak tau bedanya ya?

Dan soal perasaan ibu saya juga bukan urusan kamu, tau apa kamu tentang ibu saya?

Memang saya tidak sempurna, tidak ada manusia yang sempurna, yang sempurna adalah Tuhan. Apakah kamu Tuhan? Sehingga kamu berhak menuduh orang sembarangan? Saya yakin kamu bukan Tuhan! So just fuck off!!!!

Tolong dicatet juga ya, saya tidak pernah minta kamu untuk baca blog saya, kalau memang tidak suka dengan blog saya or tidak suka dengan saya ya sudah jangan baca! Simple kan, daripada selalu menulis comment-comment yang kampungan.

Iya saya bilang kampungan! Karena kamu hanya berani bersembunyi di balik nama "annonymous", orang paling pengecut yang pernah saya kenal!

Kalau kamu memang tidak suka hayo tunjukan siapa kamu, duh plis deh hari gini masih aja lempar batu sembunyi tangan.. udah gak musim kaleee....

Btw, gak punya kerjaan yang lebih penting ya sampe ngurusin orang lain??

Get a live and mind your own business!!

Bored...

It's been quite a while that I feel so bore with my work, dunno what happen, maybe because I'm facing the same challenge.. different account and different clients but still same challenge.

Tired and bored facing and manage stubborn creative, bitchy clients, nagging boss, etc. Been wondering what is it like to work as humanitarian worker, do something real to help people and make my self useful for others. It might be a good changes for me, do something that totally new, meet new people, have new challenges.

Some of my friends said that maybe what I need is to take a break and go on holiday, I did that as well.. 10 days in Bali and 4 days in Manado didn't make any different, still don't have motivation to work and my brain doesn't want to co-operate :(

Does anybody can help me?

Thursday, May 31, 2007

Suka heran kenapa ya orang pada seneng banget ngurusin orang lain, padahal mereka itu nggak kenal dekat dengan kita. Boo please deh...

I really don't care what people think about me, especially if they don't know me well, I only care what my inner circles think about me, nothing else matter. C'mon, don't judge book from its cover. I never judge people coz I ain't God, so can I get the same treatment from people?

Can you just leave me alone?! What I do has nothing to do with you

Well, I just take the bright side, that means people are really care about me so they want to know everything bout me :).

NoFX rocks!

Some of you might be surprised to hear that I watched NoFX concert last saturday, soo not me... :))

Yeah, I wouldn't watch their concert by my self in purpose that is for sure. The band was ok, they were funny.. never thought that punk rock band could be that funny though. But the crowd was scary... punk kids, lots of policemen with guns agghhh... What would happen if they start to fight with each other? What would happen if they start to be crazy because of the hot weather and the rock music? What if, what if... so many what if in my mind so i couldn't enjoy the music :(

So why would i watch the concert if i'm so afraid of the crowd? What would i watch the concert of the band that i've never heard the name before? If i don't know them, that means i don't know their music either, rite?

Well, my baby likes rock music and he wants to watch the concert, so if you spotted a girl with pony tail, always look around with worry face and never let go a white man's hand , yeap that's me...

He didn't mind to be the only guy among the girls when i asked him to company me meet the girls, caught in the middle of confusing conversation about gold gown or celebrity gossip, so why would i mind to go to the punk rock concert with him? Anyhow, he always looks after me and protect me from those punk kids.

Amazing what would you do or what you could do for someone you care alot ;)

Love oh love.....

I know this guy from my boyfriend. He’s obnoxious and he has this hobby that amazed me… he loves girls, he loves being with pretty girls and he wouldn’t mind to pay to get what he wants

Well, man is a man, sometimes they have needs that woman can’t understand :). This guy thinks he’s in love with this girl. My 1st impression of this girl is that she’s na├»ve and innocent (yeah if I would think that if I don’t know her background). I’m not trying to judge anyone here, whatever she does for a living is her responsibility and I have no right to object or what so ever.

But the funny thing is to see how they communicate to each other, the guy speaks very minimal of Indonesian and the girls maybe understand only 5% of English, and somehow they survive to live together during the weekend. Is it love? Or is it lust? Oh well, what ever it is, it can overcome the language barrier between 2 people here.

I think that is the main factor why he likes this girl, because she doesn’t understand what he’s saying, if she can’t understand means she can’t debate on things rite?

Love is universal or love is blind? Ah well, love is love with all its mystery

Have new boyfriend means I have new experience with new people, that so exciting. Thanks Babe ;)

Pacaran vs Dating

Harus jalan berapa lama sih biasanya untuk suatu hubungan bisa dibilang pacaran bukan sekedar dating aja?

Apa bedanya dating sama pacaran ya?

I just found out kalau ternyata ada bedanya antara dating sama pacaran, kalau baru dating kita masih bisa jalan dengan yang lain (dengan catatan nggak ketauan sama yang satunya lagi kali ya), nah kalau udah pacaran baru deh one on one relationship. Nah jangka waktu dari dating ke pacaran pun biasanya beda-beda, ada yang 1 bulan udah langsung pacaran atau ada juga yang udah dating 3 bulan baru ada omongan pacaran yiukk…

Omongan pacaran ini juga bukan cuma milik anak baru gede or anak-anak remaja pada umumnya, tapi ternyata berlaku juga di kalangan kita (kalangan mature maksudnya). Tapi omongannya mungkin bukan kayak jaman dulu yang di tembak “mau gak kamu jadi pacar gw?” tapi lebih subtle lagi. Misalnya, dia nggak akan nanya gitu tapi biasanya dia mulai bikin plan jangka sedang dalam artian next week end kita kesana yuk or next week end kita ngapain yuk, nah itu berarti ada tanda-tanda lampu hijau kalau dia mulai masukin kita ke dalam kegiatannya.
Or bisa juga dia mulai nyebut kita “my girlfriend” di depan temen-temennya or pas ngenalin kita sama temen-temennya. Misalnya “gw lagi sama pacar gw nih, or kenalin nih pacar gw”

Soalnya nggak semua cowo akan pede untuk nanya langsung ke kita mau nggak kita jadi pacarnya, taruhannya harga diri bow kalau ditolak hehehe…. Dan lagi biasanya untuk umuran kita kayaknya bisa diliat dari tingkah lakunya dia ke kita gimana, use all your senses untuk bisa ngerasain whether he’s sincere or faking it.
Ada juga cowo yang ngerasa nggak perlu lah ada omongan pacaran segala macem, selama ini kan apa yang gw lakuin udah mean something, mean dia care dan suka sama kita, belum sayang or cinta loh. Dan mungkin juga bagi sebagian cowo ngerasa kalo pacaran itu pasti banyak aturan makanya some of them mungkin prefer to keep it like that aja or istilah kerennya HTI.

Nah biasanya kalau udah ada kesepakatan pacaran emang akan ada aturan-aturan main yang berlaku.
Misalnya:
- harus selalu ijin satu sama lain kalau mau pergi, kalo nggak di ijinin ya nggak pegi or tetep pegi tapi colongan :))
- selalu update kalo mau kemana-mana
- matanya nggak boleh “belanja” lagi

- ada yang ngurusin kalo kita sakit
- ada yang bayarin kalo makan :)). Biasanya kalo masih dating nggak papa BS-BS tapi once udah pacaran kalo makan ya di tanggung cowo dong ah hehehe
- week end harus selalu barengan, wakuncar malem minggu gitu masih berlaku gak seh?
- Mm.. bingung apa lagi ya, secara udah lama nggak pacaran hehehe, well apapun aturan yang berlaku tetap harus atas persetujuan kedua belah pihak, karena tujuannya pacaran kan memang saling mengenal dan harus dilandasi oleh kepercayaan dan kejujuran.

Well anyway, kalau udah ada kesepakatan baru deh go public ke temen-temen deket dan lingkungan luas biar pada tau kalau kita taken hahahaha… hmmm.. yang ini gw masih bingung pointnya untuk apa, mungkin biar kita juga nggak “belanja” kali ya :)


Ternyata pacaran enak juga ya, ... walopun banyak yang bilang single lebih enak yiuukkk....

Love is everywhere

Just read Wenni's blog, I agree with her that love can be in everywhere. You can find love in school society, colleagues, friend of a friend of a friend, club, party, neighbour, even in internet by online chatt.

Yes, I know some success stories bout couple who met online and now they live happily ever after as husband and wife. My ex colleague now lives in Canada with her husband, and yes they met online :)
I also know other couple who met online and now still together and seems going stronger everyday, like this girl.

I know this girl is having some kind of long distance relationship with the guy she never meet, she knows this guy from some love/dating online something and they keep in touch since then. They even make a regular call, he calls her and vice versa, and also he told her that he wants to marry her and ask her to come to US. He even told her to apply VISA and he will send her some money bla bla bla...

Being a nice girl, she believes all that. She even claimed that she's seeing him at the moment... I just hope that he told her the truth and i'm happy for her if they are for real.

What is the definition of seeing someone? How can you know someone that you haven't meet? Looking back to my experience, people still can lie to you eventhough you live close by and seeing them everyday (happen to cheated husband).
It's not like i'm skeptical about long distance relationship, but I believe that if you want to have a success long distance relationship the foundation should be strong enough to overcome all obstacles, coz infidelity often comes along the way and become big problem.

For sure, i will not believe instantly on what people say online coz people tend to say things they want people to hear/know, so it might not be the real thing and becareful of freak people out there.

But, I will not say no and reject to the online thing coz it's fun anyway to have many online friends and also maybe there is some slight opportunity for me to meet my Mr. Bond or Mr. Kent ;)

Circle of life

Been so busy lately, have no time to update my blog, even i have no time to sleep. Yeah, the work really pushed me to the limit, i stayed at the office till 3 AM in the morning for 2 days in a row. That's not a life... But hey that's a life in advertising agency though :)

And here I am, writing blog from the office... What a life lol...

A life in advertising agency would be like this:
- got call from client at early morning (yes 8 AM is very early for us, especially if we stayed till 2 AM at work), asking whether we can make the presentation 1 day earlier which is the next day wtf...., . Please give us some mercy dear clients -- oopss, no offense ya Ceu hihihi
- have the whole day meeting from 10 AM to 6 PM at client's office, and then back to the office to do some work, no social life for us :))
- got call from client to brief us on something and they want us to present the material by tomorrow, helloowww... we're not magician here
- have some "hot" discussion with creative team, there are things that we know what client would react on certain things guys, but you won't listen to us, and then when the client told you exactly the same thing like we did, you listen to them.. My oh My...
- waiting in vain when creative team do the work, why waiting in vain? yes because if they're not in the mood to do some stuff then we're fucked :))
- fight for the super tight deadline, c'mon guys be realistic.. it really makes me stress out
- come to the office on weekend to supervise some stuff just because the President Director didn't like our proposed POS which already approved by his team, and the President Director wants to see all 22 items on monday, hell yeahhh.. since when the President Director is taking care of POS material, don't you have better things to do mister Dutch lol

Ok, maybe you think that a life in advertising agency is that bad, it's not actually. It's only the other side of the full life. I met interesting people and good friends because we're in the same field.

But the acknowledgement of your work is priceless, it's like worth the hassle and the stress. That's why i still in this business, and for sure the money covers all my expenses lol

Confession of fine ladies

@ 12.30 - 1 am

sms out: I feel lonely

sms in: since last week end, I feel so damn lonely, not alone. I guess we miss feeling needed and loved

sms out: hmm… we have the same feeling lol. Maybe it’s typical feeling for single women at our age

sms in: yes, Wita feels the same way too, we just talked bout it last night. Nature’s calling we should be with someone permanently.

sms out: yes we want to be with someone, but what can we do if we haven’t found the right one?


sms in: why is it hard for us to find the right one? why is it hard for us to open our heart, i'm sad.

sms out: maybe we need a closure, so that we can open our heart.

sms in: what closure? in my case, i did the closure, case close.

sms out: Or maybe, we have too high standard and criteria for our man? But, are we willing to lower down our benchmark just for the sake of getting it fast?

sms in: it’s hard… well, maybe we have to learn to accept of what God’s planned for us


Late night conversation with my dear friend Wenni. Yes, maybe we miss feeling needed, we miss feeling loved and we miss the feeling of sharing with someone close to our heart :)

The simple life

After 3 days in row attended FGD (Focus Group Discussion for whom don’t know what is FGD), something struck me.

The respondents are stayed home mom with kids, 1st and sequential kids (read: 2nd or 3rd kid). I’m an observer kind of person, I like to observe people so that I know how to react in front of them and also I like to guess their reaction toward something. So I like to observe their conversation before the session begins, coz for me that is the real and honest conversation among them.

Here are things I learn bout them:
- They have to make sure that their babies have the right nutrition by feeding them the right products. Entry point for my brand
- They have to make sure that the house will look neat by the time their hubby come home after hard work at the office, they want to pleased their hubby by showed to him that she can take care of everything
- They have to make sure that all the bills are paid on time. Husband is working and wife manages the money.
- Groceries shopping can be their pleasant entertainment from boring routine, but sometimes they can not enjoy it too as they have to make sure that their home or baby is alright while they’re gone.
- “Me time” is playing time with the baby

For sure they will not have these kinds of things: no deadline pressure, no angry boss, no bitchy clients, no stubborn creative, no failed creative output, no decrease sales and etc.

As a housewife they live their life in a simple way. But, is it that simple? Is there a simple life for anyone?

I want to have it, if there is such a thing :)

Will you marry me?

That is probably the best question that every women want to hear. Yes, at some point, we women want to settle down, have children and live happily ever after with the man we love or I would call the love of my life :)

But we also made some mistake by marrying someone just because we got pressure from family, friends and society, and also we think that in certain age we are old enough to get marry no matter if we are not ready mentally.

I know this girl for 10 years, and the latest news I heard was that she’s getting married with this man (Mr. A). They have different religion, well some of you might think that it’s not a really big deal and some might say that it is a big deal, especially if your big family is fanatic to one religion.

Well, I will not talk about the different religion here. What really shocked me was the reason behind why she decided to marry him. Actually, she expects the other guy (Mr. B) to marry her but he never pop up that question (yes, she managed to get involve with 2 guys at the same time, don’t ask me how J). As she reach 30 y.o this year, She decided to get married with Mr. A, even though her heart belongs to Mr. B, because Mr. A is the one who pop up the question. She once told me that she wants to have the ideal marriage of same religion under one roof; she doesn’t want to repeat her own experience by came from mix religion in the family. But now, she is willing to sacrifice her own will so that she can marry before 30. She also thinks that she has to get married coz her inner circle has married as well, she doesn't want to feel left behind.

It got me thinking, is that a strong reason to marry someone?

For me, marriage is a big thing, and also a gambling thing. You never know what would happen along the way during the marriage itself. Some people who got married in the name of love can not survive their marriage and divorced.

But my mom meets my dad only 2 months before they got married. Being a good child, my mom accepted what was asked for to do by my grand parents. And my parents live happily ever after, until my dad passed away 12 years ago and my dad was my mom love of her life.

So, is there an exact and strong reason to begin a marriage? So that we can survive our marriage, till death do us part.
