Just want to write something down... Actually i'm going to write about today only but since i don't have many photos to share... i'll just write everything down then :D
24 January, My flight kena delayed. I reached Jakarta 7.30PM instead of 6.50... Lufthansa!!! >:( but i think it's tolerable... i love LUFTHANSA more than any airlines. i dunno why. it gives me different feeling :) I still prefer Lufthansa than SIA. the food is sooo nice! Do nothing much @ night... then -> zzzz
25 January, Went out to have lunch with my family. Chinese food as always. Then... went to the mall & find new clothes for my bro(s) :P then.....~~~ went back home and.... DYED my hair. Got ready for the CNY eve dinner. The dishes are delicious, super mouth-watering.
26 January, didn't go out of the house until 8 PM - for dinner. We had the annual "CNY OPEN HOUSE" where relatvies & friends come and visit my house. Every year we did the same thing and Every year too, almost 200 people visited my house that very day. pretty crazy huh? With that big number of people, my mom could cleared the cakesssss given by my parent's relatives / close friends. and of course, boxes of oranges. It's like mass orange + cake eating!!!! and of course mass hong bao gifting. LOL :X
27 January, Went to my mom's office area & had lunch with my parents. I bought myself screen protector for my boldy blackberry. I gotta keep it scratch-less. hehehe :) After we finished our lunch, me and my brothers went home... made myself busy by reading novels / play SPORE! :D
28 January -Today, I'm keeping myself busy today. Woke up at 10 AM and watched E news. I haven't watch any latest Hollywood gossip for a few days now. hehe :P bathed & then off to Puri Mall with Tata. Met bryant for lunch. We chit chat, until 2.15ish, Bryant gotta go coz he had test @ school. Me & tata went to the cinema & watched Doomsday. After Doomsday, I went home... took some stuff with me and off to PIM. PIM IS FREAKING FAR FROM MY HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!! I took cab to PIM and it took me ONE HOUR PLUS PLUS to reach there. the traffic jam is maddddd... I wonder when will Jakarta be traffic-free? answer: n.e.v.e.r. :X It really pisses me off :( met maycun, led, nad & ben. Gave them the things, had dinner and guess what... THEY LEFTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!! after 1 fucking hour ride to PIM, they left me?! aloneeeeee :( :( :( sad... but yea, then must go home :( so i'm stuck in PIM all alone.
 I SAW ANDHIKA PRATAMA!!! he is the only charming Indonesian artist that i ever saw. that's my opinion :P[/edit] :D

Hey peeps! I wanna blog about yesterday... :) It was a really fun day because the bitches went to my house, we SWAM together & WE BAKE . . .
it was delicious!!! stole the recipe from Rachel. She is such a baker! Her dad is a CHEF! they should really open a restaurant. ooh and and and... I COOKED DINNER FOR THEM!!!
my victims: Yunita, Rachel, Samantha and Tiffani...
HAHAHA & they said it wasn't that bad :P I think it's too salty... :X
We watched the premiere of American Idol season 8 together & it was fun!
There's this bitchy bikini girl auditioning... obviously, wearing a bikini -.-
before she went to the audition room, she said something to Ryan Seacrest, "When I get my golden ticket, I will make out with you.."
and guess what? SHE REALLY DID. oh my god. and the background song was "I KISSED A GIRL" by kate Perry. LMAO! i don't think she's gonna make it to top 24 :S
oh well... today, i watched American Idol audition again... They're auditioning in Kansas City... The lil bro of Jason Castro (season 7, top 4) is auditioning!!! his name is Michael Castro & HE SINGS PRETTY WELL TOO. Although he is not as "pretty" as Jason Castro... (his eyes are SOO PRETTY!) I think he can get to the top 24, at least :)
Aside from American Idol marathon... I've been trying hard to STUDY. TV & laptop are my 2 biggest enemy. will go to library tmrw & FOCUS ON STUDYING there!!! :D
Last but not least,
my photoshopped lomo-like picture taken with my webcam... hehehe... i love my fish eye lens! :)
I successfully did a number of microeconomics questions... nothing to be proud of but i'm glad i did. I STUDIED YAY! :) watched GOSSIP GIRL ep 15 earlier on & i can not wait until CHUCK & BLAIR are together...

This post is heavy on pictures... DAY ONE, TWO & THREE ONLY!!! :D
Day one, 23 Dec 08...
Reached Bali earlyyy in the morning, took the tour bus & went to JOGER directly!
I LIKE THIS POSTER!!!! LOL!
Joger is a clothing store & famous of it's funny creative words & sentences on their T-shirt.
Mr.Joger has a lot of unique & interesting stuff in his shop! with funny words too of course.
gotta love Joger mannn :P
went to Galeria Duty Free to have lunch... after lunchhhh... We went to the hotel to check in & I dozed off for 3 hours...
then must meet my big big family to have dinner @ JIMBARAN!!!!! :)
for those of you who doesn't know JIMBARAN, it's the famous place from BALI BOMB 2. lol
nonono, not that. it's true but it's not that place famous for. :X
It's dinner beside the beach... :) no tiles / flooring... it's SAND!!! weeeee~~
morning call at... 6 am? nuts. we prepared ourselves for another day in Bali.
So, first thing in the morning on our checklist is... to watch the Balinese dance... Barong dance? is that what they call it? whatever it is... it's cool! beside this "opera house" there's a real house with VERY VERY ETHNIC decoration, plants & beautiful flowers everywhere... unique furniture is used & it's a really pretty house!
oh, and i found this... weeee... mating froggy. HAHA
After the Barong show, we went to Kintamani to have lunch... it's a 1-2 hours drive from the "opera house". it's famous for it's scenery... & their mountain + lake called... i can't recall the name.. :p my cousin. :)
Next, we went toooo... this HUGE pura~ I forgot what the name is -.-
Anywae, girls who are having their period are not allowed to enter this "sacred" place.
People with shorts will be given this "sarong" ....
hahaha... nice move! rite? :p
During sunset, me & my cousins went to the beach which is only the opposite of my hotel...
PRETTY PRETTY SUNSETTT!!!! love it! jumping shot is a must, isn't it? huehuehe :D
alrightyyy, moving on, DAY 3!!!
we went to the FAMOUS TANAH LOT!!!!! :) spent 1 hour ++ there just to take pictures and shop some souvenirs.
then we were off to.......
THE MONKEY GARDEN... funny name when you translate it in english :X
and you know what, I snapped some crazy funny pics!!! take a look!!! :P and the ultimateeeeeeeeeeeeee....
. this scene is pretty crazy. I was lucky to have such clear shot.
At first the male monkey was just walking behind the lady. It was having erection (my cousins called me to come to that side coz i walked from that position alr) I was so shocked seeing that MONKEY having erection. ohmg. I took some pictures and suddenlyyyyy...
THE MALE PULL OUT THE FEMALE'S TAIL & start RAPINGGGGGGGG... it only last around 10 seconds i think. We were like... "oh my godd... did that just happen?"
If you zoom that pic... you can see FANGS of the male monkey. It get pretty fierce when doing it huh? hahaha :P
After the Monkey Garden, we went to another famous Pura... which i forgot where the location was... but it was a sunny beautiful day... the sky is WONDERFUL!
i feel sad i didn't load enad's fujica with the new roll of film. i'm sure i can get some pretty shots here! pretty pretty...
WOOTTTT... in the evening, we were going for BALI HAI CRUISEE... weeeeee.... posing in front of the welcome drink hut. lol
wearing that tiny xmas hat... IT WAS XMAS DAY!!! :) before & after sunset... PRETTY! at night, we were not done with xmas yet! so me and my cousinsss went to Hard Rock Cafe to partaaayyy... Sadly, there are NOBODY on the dance floor. worst situation everrr...
the DJ was playing pretty good songs & remixes yet there is no one single drunk people dancing... :( sad. The live show is pretty entertaining though :) They sang Mr.Brightside!!! it's always a fun song to sing!
that's it for my day 1 - 3 in Bali...... :) will continue the journey on my next post!!!
- when i see people can answer a *&#!$ question easily while i'm there still wondering, when the hell did my lecturer talk about this?
- when people can explain to me sooo well about certain topic while I DON'T EVEN KNOW THAT IT'S IN THE SYLLABUS.
- when i can not concentrate at class & my classmate were listening to the lecturer sooo carefully & taking notes until no space to write anymore. mine? blank pages only. :(
- when i was sooo motivated to study, i started to read the notes / try to do the question, i can not get it right / I don't know what i'm reading about... i get soo de-motivated.
- when my friends can go library & study consistently & I can't.
the exam fever attacked already... I am sooooo nervous because from 4 subjects I learnt these 5 months, i'm confident in NONE of them. I want to work hard, i really do. I wonder... what if i say to my mom, "mom, i'm not happy studying these subjects, it doesn't suit me & it just totally suck. worst campus life ever existed, i think. CAN I MOVE TO OTHER SCHOOL PLEASE???"
no, i don't wanna give up. Oh well, i paid for the exam fee already ok?! so must study hard for this upcoming exam. by the way, the exam is on May & it's getting on my nerves already. i'm nervous, scared, angry, feeling stupid (sometime smart? :P) & struggling at the same time.
I have to do my best. I CAN NOT DISAPPOINT MY PARENTSSSS!!!!
i have more than 100 days to memorize 4 stupid study guides & practice hard.
After you read this... if you were wondering
"then why you take this business course in the first place?"
A: first, i have no choice & i was too young to choose school. Honestly, I don't know which school has WOW reputation & which one doesn't. I'm the oldest among 3 & my parents has no experience on this thing too. If only i can turn back 3 years ago... I WOULD NEVER NEVER NEVER EVERRRRRRR TAKE THIS COURSE! that's for real.
my interest in this course = 0%... well if you take out all the theory & bullshit, it'll be ehmm 15%? all lectures bore me to hell. I just have to BARE with it & do my best.
1.5 years and i'm done.
PLEASE GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO STUDY ALL DAY LONG... TO DO TUTORIAL ALL DAY LONG... NOT TO WATCH TV & SURF NET ALL DAY LONG... NOT TO PLAY GAME!
lastly, i hope i can pass my exam with... at least a 50-60 points EACH. (34 is passing mark)
if i get lucky, i can hit 70, collecting 5 of it & i get FIRST CLASS HONOUR DEGREE. yeah right.
off for now. i've set my goal & i'll make sure i'll get it done.
thanks to all people who believe in me & supporting me. really appreciate it.

I've been busy... being a "housekeeper" -.-
everyday i must cook, wash clothes, do the dishes, mop the floor, etc, etc, etc...

Currently, my new phone is being a stupid ass... i dunno if it's my phone or the service provider.. I CAN NOT MESSAGE ANYONE!!! well, i can receive calls & sms, make phone calls but can not send out messages. weird :( i paid my bill liao leeh... -.- hope tmrw this thing is fixed! :D
Okayyy, i'm so sleepy right now... i better go to sleep! good night :)
and i tell you what... THIS IS A REALLY GOOD MOVIEEEE!!!!!
touching & unpredictable (except spoiler like eliz told you the MOST IMPORTANT part of the movie!!!! :X)
i like this movie :) very very recommended!
I am suppose to go to bed like 2 hours ago but I was over excited every time i see my 2 new babies in my room. My four-lens cam has been loaded with film & ready to go.
At first, I was doubting my reddy holga cause i'm going to use the 35mm film, which is rather complicated to load... but as i watched the tutorial videos on youtube, i guess it's not that difficult! I give it a shot & load the film (i'm hoping i'm doing it correctly! :X)
I used my 35mm adaptor & read the instructions carefully... load the film & snapped 2 shots just now. Tried the red flash too! hohoho... I AM SO EXCITEDDDDD!!!!!!! :D
i hope the pictures will turn out gooooodddd :p
Anywae, I tried 1 shot (on my holga) with my fisheye lens... you know what's a fisheye lens is, don't you?
well, i tried the lens yesterday with my blackberry cam (LOL!)
there you go! my best friend since 2006 shot with fisheye lens! wooohooo :p
