Great Mind

Love this quote

via @ihatequotes
I really like this quote. This is what's called self-confidence and believe that God has prepared the best one for you :)

So, for you who is still searching, yes you :) be patient. I am very sure he is just around the corner. He is coming to as soon as he can.

Book

Maybe I have told you before that I was busy writing my first book. It's a fiction, an Indonesian fiction, a love story :)

And It's almost done! I just need to finish up the last chapter(s). I will certainly finish it this weekend.

Are you interested to proof-read it before I send it to the publisher? Please leave a comment.

A friend tweeted "make sure that your book is so popular that it will be translated to English." LOL let's hope so.

Wish me luck

Friends or Nothing at All? - Part 2

And how is it now?

My recent friction with my so-called best friend has made me realize that sometimes, we think that we are so close to someone yet the feeling is actually not mutual. As I often move around from one place to another, people that become close to me overtime will automatically receive a ‘Friend’ badge from me. But, the fact is that they are merely acquaintance; we just become close to me overtime – because of the situation and condition: thus, this is what I actually am for him.

One thing I learned from this experience is that mutuality. He apparently doesn’t invest as much effort as I do to the friendship.

So what should we do? What should I do in the future? I learn that if I want to really invest and build a new friendship, I need to ask these questions: Does this person invest as much effort as I do to the relationship? Will this person give as much time as I will to the relationship? And will this person accept you for better and for worse as much as I will? If they …

Inception: A Help for The Confused

Although I could quite get when I was watching Inception, I had to digest this infographic before I dared to share it on my blog.

So this is a first aid if you are still confused about Inception.

Doesn't help? Go watch it once again!

Still doesn't help? Ah well, maybe Shrek Forever After of Twilight Eclipse will be just the perfect choice for you :)

Reuse and Recycle

Love the idea so much! If I had these grain sacks or burlap, I will definitely give it a try. I think I will first make the accessories hanger (oh, you wouldn't know how my drawer look like now, full with my little accessories!) and the this cute vintage bag.

This is how bus (for Indonesia) should look like!

I hope Indonesian governements would read this and consider to buy this kind of buses from China. This would save Indonesian citizens from dying in the traffic jam. Speaking of traffic jam, I have to thank my parents that I was born and grew up in Surabaya, East Java, where traffic jam is not a major issue.

So, Mr. SBY, please please please, can you have some budget next year to buy this kind of buses? Please?

Family or Nothing At All ?- Part 1

Some of you may have wondered what happened with me a couple of days ago after reading my blog post about friendship. It was a temporary friction between me and this friend – which is now settled; however it continued being a friction between me and myself.

Reading Neysa’s post about the difference of Best Friend, Friend, Acquaintance (this is a direct translation of the word ‘Kenalan’), and ‘Someone I know or I have met’ made me think of the people in my life: who are they, who are they for me, and who am I for them.

I am blessed with the fact that I have met and known so many nice, crazy, and happy people in my life. They cheer me up when I am down. They help when I need it. They listen (or read) my rumble, my tweet or my blog posts. Some of them understand when I am in a terrible mood, especially when Ms. PMS visits me once a month.

However, the problem I had earlier this year and Neysa’s post, made me think about my relationship with them. I think of them as my friends, but do they t…

My fave, well-thought music video

It's been a while that I found music video that I like, which has interesting concept and the song is good.

In Indonesia, for instance, most music video is now made abroad, just because it will look way cooler! Yet, the concept, is zero!

I just found two nice video: one from Europe and one from my home country, Indonesia.






So, what do you think?
