2010 Resolution

Some people posted their resolution even before the clock went to 00:00 1st January 2010. I was not quite on-time for that. See my previous post what has occupied my time.

To be able to write about my resolution for this new year, I need to reflect on what I have done in 2009 and how 2009 has treated me.

To be truly honest, I am not really proud of who I was and what I have done in 2009 as a person. The hard life, difficulties, and bitterness that I have been through, have made me on one hand a very strong person - I was really tough. Yet, on the other hand, I was really too hard on myself and towards other people that were not 'strong' enough.

In 2009, I didn't let myself to fail. When I failed, I was breaking down and blaming myself. I didn't let myself to learn from my mistake and be better. I was trying reallly hard to be good, be the best, be perfect! You could see that during my Master education. I was 'punishing' myself to study 24/7. I didn't let mysel…

My Little Journey to the Future

As promised, here is the full version of my journey in Indonesia:

There is not much to share if we are talking about my trip back to Indonesia, because the major thing I did was spending my time with my family. I arrived in the beginning of December, one day after Stefy was pronounced 'graduated!" from NHTV Breda. So it was a huge relief for us. We were cheering and singing happily in our flight. We couldn't sleep at all!

Since we'd arrived, until the first week of January 2010, I spent my time with my family. We went to Bali, Central Java and Jogjakarta. It was really fun! Of course because I went with my family, but also because I'd not been to these cities in ages. I remember the last time I visited those cities was when I just graduated from High School; it was like 8 years ago!!

There were some time when I also spent my holiday with my friends. Unfortunately I didn't have much time. I only went out with each group of friends only once! So with highschool gro…

And I'm back

Just to tell you that I am now back in Holland.

I will elaborate more on the next posts about what I have been doing in Indonesia and what I will be doing here in Holland.

And I'm officially back to the blogsphere. Thanks to the good internet connection.

our last days in Indonesia

It's sad that we (Stefy and I) have to head back to Holland next Friday (22 Jan).

We have spent more or less 5-6 weeks in Indonesia. We have done a lot of things, from work to fun, from meet up some friends to family gathering. We have had lots and lots of joy and blessing here! We thank God for that!

Some people may cheer that they are going back to Holland, the land of freedom - the land where Euro is the currency, where the people do not bother who you are and what you do, where discrimination is none, where you can do whatever you want to do.

For me, Holland is a second home - a position that couldn't ever be replaced whatsoever. Hence the result it is really sad to go back to the second home and leaving the first one.

For us, Holland is a land where opportunities and challenges exist abundantly. However, we regretfully have to admit that life is extremely boring in Holland. Life consists of morning, afternoon and evening - divided in to sections that everyone has to be par…

All we ever do is say goodbye

Indonesia is in its rainy season. Some people said I am so lucky to be in Surabaya, especially, on this time of the year. Normally, the weather would be terribly hot, humid!!

So, I don't know whether it's the weather or it's just me being melancholic today, but this song from John Mayer's new album is my favorite. And, I reckon, this song should have been suitable to one stage of my life - a long time ago.

Thus, here it is: All we ever do is say goodbye.

I bought a ticket on a plane
And by the time it landed, you were gone again
I love you more than songs can say
But I can't keep running after yesterday

So why you wanna break my heart again
Why am I gonna let you try

When all we ever do is say goodbye
All we ever do is say goodbye

Peepz it's me, remember?

I hope I haven't been away for too long.
and I do hope that you still remember me :D

Anyway, let me first say 'Happy New Year 2010'.
Wow, I cannot believe that it's already the second week of this new year. Time flies so fast!!

At this moment, I really wish that God would use the slow-motion mode to slow down the time. I enjoy my time so much in Indonesia. I have been to so many places. I spent so much time with my family (yet not too much with my friends - should do it these coming weeks). I have consumed so much food and beverages that I had wished to consume when i was in Holland. and now I hope that, at some points, time stops or slows down.

As it would be impossible, let me share some thing more realistic. So,... remember the job I mentioned in the previous post (which I wrote some weeks ago)? I wrote that I got rejected and I would look for another job, right? Guess what, it was a misunderstanding! I didn't know how it could be possible, but I got invi…
