Hello blogger, blogspot... whatever your name is... I MISSED YOU!!! *hugs* you don't know how much I spent in purchasing stuff... hosting the crap. oh my gosh... such a waste of money. I better find a way to make it work in CHina.
Anyway... just wanna let you guys know, I miss blogging so damn much! I just needed to blog somewhere as I fix my wordpress thingie. well well... i spent one week in Singapore last week. I had a great time there. Thank you so much for the company guys :) I will sure be back, someday. hehe
Tomorrow... well, in less than 5 hours, I'm going to the airport to fly to GuangZhou China. To visit my new 'school' :S This is gonna be exciting. I'm gonna write about it after I got back from GZ :)
OH! I finally watched inception just now. The movie was crazy... heavy but cool. Love the thinking part... it really left me hanging and give all the viewers a chance to an open interpretation of the ending. damn! Love it!
I'm soooo sad that my site is down for more than a week already :(
Here's the explanation for it:
I hosted my new site on hostgator.com while my domain is still hosted by dijaminmurah.com.
So, 27th June I've transfered the domain to a new registrar. Apparently, I forgot to click this stupid link in the email sent to me. (i didn't even bother to read it!) so, the transfer IS NOT PROCESSED because i didn't click that link -.- Sadly, on 9th July, my domain expired and that's why you keep seeing this WOMAN'S FACE!!!!
Finally, I filled the form again and apply for another domain transfer. Everything checked. Clicked that stupid link and it was transfered successfully (it took me 5 days)
I was thinking ... If the transfered has been successfully done, my site could finally back up. but NO!!!! it still didn't work until now :( I consulted my problem with hostgator customer service. (they are really good and friendly, 5 stars for their fast & great service.) The guy said I haven't changed the server name through my new registrar. BUT THE PROBLEM ISSS...
i don't have the ID and login password as i didn't receive any email regarding this problem.
I contacted another guy and he helped me out. He gave me the password and i finally able to change the server name.
The bad news is, i still have to wait another 12-48 hours until my site is up. :(
I miss blogging so much and there were a LOT of things happened in the last week. ARGH!
My deepest condolences goes to those Jakarta Bomb victims on 17th July '09
May this country recover faster and become stronger.
Please stop this kind of act you dumb-ass no-brainer TERRORISTS!!!!
So, dear readers, please wait until my new site is up.
Happy Saturday guys :) I hope you'll have a great weekend ahead...
Now, let me blog about my looongggg day... :D
on Thursday, I had 4 hours catwalk class.
Learnt about various way of poses and a few walking techniques. It's really fun!
I love modeling and i would love to make money out of it... but i don't think that'll be my permanent job (except i become a SUPERMODEL or something close to that :X who knows?). A lot of people might link the modeling world as a glamour world, people think models are dumb and use drugs... Everything is so negative. No, this is not why i don't want to make modeling as my long-term job. It's just... i don't know... i couldn't picture myself modeling for my whole life~
except (again...) i have the chance to model in USA / UK. that would be great! haha :D
My OQ buddies :D
After 4 hours class, i went straight to Grand Indonesia.. and it took me 1.5 hours!!!
Traffic jam in Jakarta is sooo crazy that i couldn't tolerate it anymore...
Dear new president, please fix this! :p
So, in G.I i met up with the ajilicious team <3
sooooooooo looooongggggg never see them!!! we watched "blood" which is a super sucky movie with super sucky effects. We walked for a while, took group pictures then head home...
Pretty tired that day... I caught a really bad flu and fever at night.
The next day (which is today) I had a 11 AM class with Ms. Okky Asokawati.
She gave a talk on the modeling business and how to be a successful model & stuff.
It was a good talk. She has that 'inner beauty' which glows out of her. I like her! :)
After the talk, i had an acting session and choreography class.
Let me tell you..... I SUCK AT DANCING!!! and i have to do FASHION DANCE?!
oh gosh, worst day of my life. I have to dance *badly* in front of 9 people (including the teacher) while walking in heels down the runway. mad woman. HAHAHA... but i don't care, there's a few worse dancers in my class than me *OOPS! :X*
On the way home, I was caught in a really bad traffic in Cideng area. It's really crazy!
I reached home at 9 pm!!! :S
So now, I'm lying on my bed, typing this entry with runny nose and sleepy eyes. tired.
I need to get some rest! I hope i'll feel better tomorrow! :)
Hola guys! I need to rant about my virgin trip using the famous TransJakarta a.k.a BUSWAY!!!
Busway, is just like any other bus in the world (complete with air conditioner, space to stand and sit). Except, it's much better than metromini / kopaja which has NO proper bus station, which means, you can ask the bus-captain to stop ANYWHERE you want. pretty weird for you non-indonesians? but it's true! It's super unorganized and crazy. that's Indonesia! haha
As you all know, i'm currently taking a modeling course somewhere in Kelapa Gading which is damn far from where i lived. The route of busway itself is pretty complicated. I couldn't even understand what i was reading. It's nothing compared to Singapore's bus route. Well, may be i'm just not used to it.
So, I started taking busway from 'Indosiar' stop where I was suppose to meet my friend there. She's my guide!!! I need her because i have absolutely no idea on how to get to my destination!
I waited for her at the busway station around 11.40PM. yes PM!!! I bought the ticket and waited there. Smokes, car, motorcycles are everywhere. Jakarta is SO POLLUTED!!!! oh, do you know that Jakarta is one of the TOP 10 POLLUTED cities in the world? the ratio of residential area to the 'green' area is 92% versus 8%. it's crazy!!! Blame the government for not taking care of the whole infrastructure and planned the whole '50:50 residential and green area' properly.
ok, back to the story... When i was standing there, waiting for my DEAR friend, i thought, may be if someone stood there for days... sleep & eat there... You might die because of the pollution!
the crazy smoke!!! oh gosh, PLANT MORE TREES PLEASE!!! I was so pissed while waiting for may friend who at the end came late! We went in and a few minutes later, a silver bus came then we went in.
Inside the bus, there's this one creepy uncle tried to talk to me. I can't even hear what he said.. it's really blur. It's more like mumbling than talking :X The uncle was standing on my right side while my friend was standing on my left side. The bus was packed with people... After a few minutes, i asked my friend "which area is this?" She said "Harmoni" and i could hear the creepy uncle said "this is Harmoni area..." wth? -.- weirrrrddddd....
He even asked me, "are you on holiday??" and he's all smiley and freaky. oh gosh~
Luckily it's time to transit, move to the other direction. So, i got out of the bus and left that creepy uncle. :S
on the second bus, we finally get to sit down and breathe as there were not many people there.
It's pretty cheap that i only had to pay Rp 3.500,- (S$ 0.50) for a long trip like this!!! But of course, you have to bare with the smell and the pollution and the crowdedness...
After the second bus trip, we got off around the Kelapa Gading area already but... we still have to take a mikrolet to reach our destination. Like any other public transport in Indonesia... you can ask the driver to stop anywhere you like! and that makes Jakarta's massive traffic jam
Thus, in total, i spent Rp 5500 for the entire trip and I WOULD NEVER DO THIS AGAIN!
The fact that i'm not used to it plus the extra crazy scenes, no, I don't want to take busway ever again. It's faaaarrrrrr different from the public transport in Singapore. Now, i miss taking bus in Singapore :p Most recommended public transport in Jakarta = BLUEBIRD TAXI! :) that's it.
I'm done with my rants about public transport. Oh, i forgot to mention that I think i did pretty badly at the catwalk evaluation... especially those steps with turns... not sure of it because the teacher won't comment on each and everyone's walk. I hope, as i practice, I could improve on my walk and book jobs out of it. HAHA :D that would be fun ;)
