Auld Lang Syne.

Happy new year, everyone. I wish the upcoming year would bring you more happiness, opportunity, health and wealth :)

So how did you celebrate it? I had an intimate dinner with closest friends and then we headed to Millpoint to see the fireworks. I always love fireworks, and honestly I was expecting for something far more spectacular than what I actually saw. But that's okay. Surrounded by my closest friends on new year's eve is more than enough for me.

I could feel the tight-knit-bond between us. And that's just simply wonderful. The food is deliciously yummy, mixed with lots of good laugh. Heaven on earth.

Looking back to the year 2008, I could say that this is my clueless year. I got my bachelor degree, but still struggling in finding the peoper job. I felt the urge to start making my own living, but I still haven't been able to do that. Although, I have uncountable things that makes me feel incredibly thankful. Thank God for everything I have achieved and for everything You've given me.

The first and a half hour of 2009 has passed. I hope this year will be brighter than ever. Bismillah..

5th Times for Me, 1st Time for Wendy.

Have you ever watched Jennifer Love Hewitt's If Only? This movie's got to be on top of my favourite movie list. And yeah, we really cried our eyes out.

ps. Instead of popcorn, we had lettuce for snack.

Full of Hope.

I don't want to expect too much from this. But I can't hide my excitement :D

For All of You.

Merry Christmas
and Happy New Year to the world !

Let the coming year be better than all the others.
Future is always good, no matter what happens :)

Thursday, December 18, 2008


Just in case you wanna know, I'm blogging while I'm in the loo. Hihi. This is just one of billion things I love about having a wireless-broadband-internet-connection.

Errr.. Actually i don't have much to say. Audrey flew to Jakarta this morning, and Wendy just came home from a late-nite shopping few minutes ago and she seemed very happy with her new hair dryer and flat iron. Oh and she cooked a really yum chicken skin crackers this morning. I just couldn't get enuff of it.

Really, I need to do something useful. Something that could drag my lazy ass from the couch and bed. I need to get a 'real' job. I know i know, I always say the same thing over and over again about me longing for a full time job. But still... Aeegrhhr.. It makes me want to cry even just to think about it. See, the tears start to rolling down my cheek now. T_T

Woops. I miss my superboii.

I'm sensing something odd.

Anyway, welcome to Klub Senang-Senang (KSS).

Baked Dita.

Perth's current temperature: 38 C

Parraaaahhhh... Gw bener2 pengen di rmh aja seharian, karena di dlm rumah lebih adem daripada di luar. Jadinya tadi bangun siang, cuci baju, leyeh2 ntn DVD.. Trus tiba2 kok pengen beli frozen coke nya Mc.D. Yaudah, akhirnya gw cepet2 jemur baju, ambil tas, trus langsung capcuss ke Mc.D. Drive thru doang, karena emang pengen buru2 pulang lagi. Tp sampe sana gw malah tergoda beli Iced Coffee nya, hehe. Sama beli small fries juga..

Itu gw pergi kira2 20 menit lah ya.. Begitu sampe rumah, pegang2 jemuran, ya ampun udah kering aja yaa tuh baju2 saking panasnya ! Tapi emang yg gw jemur itu kaos2 semua, nggak ada jeans. Sekarang udh keriing, ya ampun gw msh amazed rasanya.. Trus tadi gaya dong, gw pegang2 jemuran aja pake sunglasses. Hahaha..

Dan sekarang kulit muka gw rasanya perih2 gitu, gara2 kebakar matahari. Gggrrhhhgggg.. Apa harus pake after-sun lotion ya? Huhu tambah item deh kulitku :(

Tuesday, December 9, 2008


I feel like I'm lost in a fog.
Not only I don't know where I am standing,
I also don't know where should I be.

I am completely lost.

You Might Want to Watch This.

What happenned with Miley Cyrus? She seemed to be high on drugs in this interview. And what's with her voice? She's acting soo completely weird. Okay, she's only 16. But why on earth she would act like a 3 yo ? Eew.


Settingannya lagi di Miggles Carousel, Dita & Wendy ketemu Annice. Setelah basa-basi dan ngobrol macem2, terjadi lah percakapan berikut ini:

Annice : Iya Wen, temenku orang hongkong ada yang balik for good jadi dia nolak kerjaan jadi PR gitu di *&^%$#@!#%.
Wendy: Haahh, aku mau dong apply itu nama perusahaan nya apa ya Nis? Aku mau cari di google ah nanti.
Annice: Iya cari aja, namanya *&^%$#@!

Setelah puas ngobrol2, Dita & Wendy keluar dari toko dan jalan menuju parkiran.

Dita: Ya ampun kalo aku jadi temennya Annice sih ga bakalan jadi for good ya kalo udh ditawarin kerja disini...
Wendy: Iyaaaa coba ya yaa ampun kronis banget nggak sih Diiiitttt.. Kita disini susah banget nyari kerja, sementara dia udah ditawarin kerja malah nolak..
Dita & Wendy: ........
Dita & Wendy: *liat-liatan*
Dita: Ironis kali wen maksudnya?
Wendy: Hoooooooiyaaaaaa... Hehahaheheehehaahahahheheahh...

Another Weekend is Approaching.

Hey its Thursday already ! So it's been more than a week since my last post. Aaw, I seem to be neglecting my blog. I never meant to, its just everytime I start to write something in here, I always end up closing the blogspot window because I always got stuck on the second or third sentence. Because I have nothing to be shared in my blog, hehe. Nothing new, nothing interesting, nothing.

Just in case you care, I'm not gonna work more than 10 hours a week this month :(

I feel really bored (and broke) ! Since Monday, me and Wendy just wandering around together because we have nothing to do. Looking on the bright side, maybe it's time for us to be back on being TWINS again. Hehahahhaeehehah.. We're even started to look-alike *okay, a bit exaggerated* !

Oh by the way.. I've just dyed my hair black. I think it suits me better than the mahogany one, which looked really yuck when the colour starts to fade out and my natural hair colour started to grow.

I miss my mommy and daddy. I hope they're doing fine, healthy and happy. If only I'm only allowed to ask one thing, I would ask for them to live happily forever. Because afterall, that's the only thing that matters.

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Helloy everyone :)

I had the best weekend ever. How's yours? It's funny that I'm still thinking about my last weekend in the middle of the week. Hahah, segitunyaa..

Okay. Not much update from me this time. Except that I have a bundle of things-to-do list. Like renew my passport. Owh, and preparing the marketing plan for Colosoul. And send the photo CD to my brother. And cleaning up the kitchen.

Not much hey?

Thursday, November 20, 2008

So Everyone's Going to Leave.

Ohhsss...ttt. Everyone's going to leave, and I'll still be here, alone. It was quite understandable when Mandy decided to go to Jakarta for a few days. She has some kind of 'mission' in there, yeah. My superboii is going to leave tomorrow, and coming back to Perth on the 2nd of January '09. Then, Wendy suddenly booked a ticket to Melbourne, for the sake of radicality. She's going to leave on Saturday. Huhu. To make it all worse, Odri is considering to spend her Christmas in Indo as well. Oh guuurreaat..

I don't wanna be alone in this what-so-called liveless city :/

Listening to: Corner of the Earth - Jamiroquai.

Kayaknya tadi lumayan banyak yang mau diceritain.. Tapi sekarang malah bingung nulisnya gimana, mau mulai dairmana. Hehe. Intinya gw lumayan lega, udh ada pencerahan soal step2 yg hrs diambil untuk membangun masa depan (tsaahh), alhamdulillah udh nggak bingung2 lagi. Semuanya justru jadi kerasa gampang banget buat dijalanin. Dulu, ngambil master cuma sekedar back up plan aja in case gw nggak dapet2 kerja. Ternyata emang sampe sekarang gw msh jobless (casual, part-time jobs and internships don't count) dan emang harus ambil master.

Rasanya usaha gw udh poll2-an deh waktu itu untuk dapetin kerjaan. Istilahnya nih, 24/7 gw mantengin dan segala macem recruitment web lainnya. Gw bisa apply lebih dari 5 kerjaan dalam sehari. Tapi semua respond-nya nggak ada yang positif. Sedih? Pasti. Kecewa? Banget. Bahkan gw pernah 3 malem berturut2 nangis2 sampe ketiduran sendiri. Apalagi beberapa temen gw udah ada yang dapet kerja. Rasanya gw makin down aja. Untungnya, gw dapet part-time job yang gw seneng banget. Boss nya baik, temen2 disana jg baik, duitnya jg oke.

Sambil kerja part-time, gw tetep masih nyari full-time job. Dan tetep nggak ada hasilnya. Sampe akhirnya gw putusin untuk lanjutin sekolah aja, ambil master. Kenapa gw putusin ambil master? Pertama, karena orang tua sangat mendukung. Mereka jauh lebih pengen gw ambil master daripada langsung kerja. Kedua, gw emang masih pengen sekolah. Gw tau, sooner or later gw bakal sekolah lagi. Sooner, better lah ya. Ketiga, alhamdulillah bokap gw masih sanggup membiayai. Yasudah, bulat lah tekad gw. Akhirnya gw daftar untuk jurusan Finance. Semua orang bilang susah. Bahkan ada yang bilang kalo average mark bachelor gw nggak mencukupi untuk ambil Finance (nilai gw emang bisa dibilang hampir ancur, haha). Tapi alhamdulillah banget gw diterima.

Yang sempet jadi pikiran, application Temporary Resident (TR) gw lagi diproses. Untuk apply TR ini aja, bisa dibilang bokap gw udh ngeluarin duit cukup banyak lah. Kalo gw mau sekolah lagi, di pikiran gw tuh gw harus apply student visa, yang mana biaya nya lebih gede lagi. Males banget kan. Tapi ternyata pas gw tanya ke Department of Immigration & Citizenship (DIMIA ganti2 nama mulu deh..), mereka bilang gw nggak perlu pake student visa. Tunggu aja TR nya keluar. Gw bisa pake itu untuk sekolah kok. Lega banget rasanya.

Baru hari ini gw sadar, bahwa jalannya memang harus begini. Gw percaya kok Allah tau yang terbaik buat gw. Gw nya memang pengen banget kerja, tapi mungkin bukan itu yang terbaik untuk gw saat ini. Dan emang sih, selesai sekolah master, gw udah langsung bisa apply Permanent Resident (PR). Setelah gw pikir2, jalan ini jauh lebih gampang daripada gw harus kerja dll. Bukannya gw nggak pengen kerja lho yaa..

Sekarang gw sadar, bahwa cara gw memandang masalah gw itu salah banget. Gw terlalu fokus mikirin dan menyesali apa yang gw nggak punya (kerjaan), sampe gw lupa mensyukuri apa yg gw punya. Klise sih, gw udh sering bgt denger nasehat2 kayak gitu.. Tapi begitu gw ngalamin dan sadar sendiri, rasanya kayak ditampar. Ciyee, ga segitunya sih. Tapi yang jelas ke depannya nanti cara gw memandang hidup bakalan berubah lah. Uhuy.

Yang gw nggak punya wkt itu cuma satu: full-time job yang degree-related. Tapi gw punya banyak: ortu yg supportif bgt, temen2 yang senasib sependeritaan dan saling ngedukung, kerjaan part time yg oke, and the list goes on...

Mudah2an cerita ini berguna ya buat siapapun yang baca, yang mungkin lagi galau juga. Hehe. Mari...

Thursday, November 13, 2008


I don't need anymore vacation. I don't need anymore holiday. I don't even need a single weekend (for now). I just need to sort my things out. And need to be more organised. Yeah I sucked big time.

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Bingung, bingung.

Tadinya, rencana hari ini mau ke bank bikin bank cheque buat bayar uang sekolah, abis itu lanjut ke curtin. Eh pas lg ngisi2 form di rmh, ternyata baru sadar kl musti bayar buat insurance nya juga (OSHC). No problemo sih, karena jatohnya lebih murah daripada Medibank gw sekarang.

Abis itu, ngeliat ke bgn visa nya. Gw baru rencana mau apply student visa. Tapi pas ngecheck ke website nya immigration, kok nggak jelas sih requirement nya apa. Apa gw hrs ikut test IELTS lagi? Kl iya, berarti musti bkn appointment dari sekarang dong? Udh gitu, sekarang visa temporary resident gw lg dlm proses. Sayang nggak sih kl gw drop. Masalahnya bayar buat apply student visa itu hampir $500. Lah kl gw apply itu, angus dong uang application TR gw yg $300an. Cuh, rugi bandar. Ga maoo.

Yaudah, pokoknya itu aja sih yg bikin bingung. Huh...

Mandy's Tummy Can Not Stop Making Sound.

Few updates:

  • Melbourne was FUN. I love the food, the scenery, the people, the weather, everything!
  • Mom has arrived safely at Soekarno Hatta airport. Alhamdulillah.
  • Superboii is going to have his first exam tomorrow. Good luck, sweetheart.
  • Just realized that our life has changed a lot, in just a few months. Oh you have no idea how much we miss our uni time.
  • Had a wonderful little dinner with Mandy, Wendy, Audrey & Astrid. This is the first time in 4 months where we can actually sit together and talk.
  • Life's getting harder, agree?
  • Wendy and Mandy are sleeping next to me, and Mandy's tummy just can not stop making sound. I think she's starving, haha.
  • Things to do tomorrow: go to the bank, pay tuition fee at uni, go to work at 4. Back to the old routines.
Ok, it's 11:57 pm now. Good night everyone, have a good sleep. I hope tomorrow's will be a wonderful day for you guys :)

In the Meantime..

Ouyeah. I had a wonderful time last night, it was my graduation ceremony. A very touching and memorable celebration, i must say. My parents were there, as well as my closest friends (i really wish you were there, Mend..). And of course, we didn't missed the golden opportunity of taking a billion pictures of us in our regalia. I certainly will upload the picture here :)

How Does He Know You're The One?

Everytime I watch a movie or read an article that brings up the topic of marriage, romantic wedding, and couple stories, I have the same question that pop-up in mind : "How did she know he's the one? How did he know she's the one? What makes them so sure about spending the rest of their life together?"

Most women answered "I just knew it. You know he's the one when you stop wondering whether he's the one or not." Romantic. But that wasn't the answer I'd been waiting for. It just somehow didn't hit the spot. I need some logical explanation.

So I asked a good friend of mine, whose recently got married, "So tell me, how did you come up with the idea of marrying her?" And he responded:

Because she's worth it. She worths every second I spend on this planet. She worths the extra lembur time that I have, she worths every single tears that I shed for her to be happy and settled. And about her being my wife.. the more I thought about it, the more I wanted it.

That's just... a perfect answer. Yet it leads me to another thought. "What does it take to make me worth that much?"

Super Stoopit.

Karena satu dan lain hal, tadi iseng2 gw search Christian Sugiono di google image.

Dan bodohnya gw adalah, instead of ngetik christian sugiono, gw malah ngetik christian SUGIATNO ! pantesan ga ketemu2 gambarnyaa... hahaahaha.. serasa dia anak bapakku aja.

How I See a Life.

Most of the things in life are not always turns out as we wanted.
People around us are not always acts as we want them to be.
(But that doesn't mean they're not nice)

Sometimes, we feel offended by others, but never think that we offend them.
And sometimes, it's better to just SHUT UP and LISTEN.

Not to be judgemental,
But if I were those who can't stop complaining about itsy-bitsy-little-tiny things...

There I finally say it !

10 Facts and Habits About Me ?

Kayaknya lebih tepatnya dibilang 10 Facts About Me and My Blog deh. Hahha.. Ini PR dari judotens, gw ada di urutan pertama lho ! Uhuy ! Yak, langsung saja ya ini saya jabarkan jawaban2 saya terhadap pertanyaan2 berikut:

1. Nama :
Andita Vernada. Aslinya ya nama gw nggak ada family name nya ya, baru setelah gw di Perth aja, nama belakang bokap -Sugiatno- jadi eksis xP

2. Ngeblog :
Awalnya ngeblog di friendster. Lama2 kok jadi pengen bikin di blogspot. Sebelum blog ini aktif, gw pernah bikin blog 2 kali di blogspot. But after a couple of posts, I was failed to sign back in to my blogger because I forgot my username. Stoopit. Lalu sempet juga gw bikin blog di multiply. Waktu itu pas lagi heboh2nya bisa sharing lagu disitu. Eeh, baru bikin, application download lagu nya udh di remove. Yasudah, ga pernah dibuka lagi deh blog itu.

3. Kesibukan :
nggak sibuk-sibuk amat. gw udh lulus kuliah, tp blm dapet kerja full-time. jadi ya selama ini gw cuma kerja part-time aja di sini. Lumayanlah buat nambah2 uang saku selagi nyari2 kerjaan full-time.

4. Penggemar dari:
waduh apa ya.. dari segi musik, nggak ada band yang gw suka-suka banget. gini deh, karena gw perempuan, jadi i'm a big fan of HANDBAGS, SHOES, DRESSES, and MAKE-UPs :)

5. Cita cita:
seperti perempuan pada umumnya juga, cita2 gw pengen jadi wanita karir sekaligus ibu dan istri yang sukses.

6. Selain ngeblog :
ya banyak lah yg bisa gw lakukan selain ngeblog. salah satunya adalah Facebook-an. Hahaha, so I told myself "get a life, hey !"

7 Kelakuan:
tukang tidur. kalo ngomong suka sembarangan, nggak pake mikir dulu. gampang senewen apalagi kl lagi kepanasan. gw bukan org yang rapi2 banget, tp benci kl liat rumah berantakan. nggak pernah respect sama orang yang self-centered *ini sih bukan kelakuan ya?*

8 . Other :
apa ini? gw bingung jawab yang ini.

9 Keberuntungan :
dikelilingin sama orang-orang yang baiknya luar biasa :)

10 Masa depan blog :
5 years from now, I will read every single post in my blog to watch how I've grown as a person. So basically, this blog will always be my virtual diary for me, so in the future, I can still look back to my old memories.

And here comes the rules:
1. Each blogger must post these rules
2. Each blogger starts with ten random facts/habits about themselves
3. Bloggers that are tagged need to write on their own blog about their ten things and post these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose ten people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’ve been tagged and to read your blog.

I tag Wendy, Maya, Mira, Adi, Meika, Mendi, Marisca, and you :)

Monday, October 20, 2008

Thank You :)

Thank you, for being incredibly nice to me.
Thank you for all the things you've done for me.
Thank you for giving up many things for me.

Thank you for just.... being you.
I love you.

When Summertime Gets Too Hot.

One of a few things I hate about Perth is the weather. It gets too hot during summertime! Even in the begining of summer, when it ONLY reach 28 degress, the air feels so heavy, thick, and humid. It makes me hard to breath.

And that makes me can't sleep.

Arrgghhhh. No more boogie-ing because I'm not in the mood.

Jackson Five Fever.

Don't blame it on the SUNSHINE.
Don't blame it on the MOONLIGHT.
Don't blame it on the GOOD TIMES.

Blame it on the BOOGIE !

My Never Ending Stupidity.

Sebel banget gwwww... Jadi orang kok ya pelupa dan bodohnya kadang2 gak ketulungan sih. *nangis meraung-raung sambil jedot2in kepala ke bantal, akhirnya ketiduran*

Cerita Hari Ini.

Papaku berulang tahun sebentar lagi. Jadi tadi siang gw ditemenin superboii nyari kado di city. Muter2 kira2 satu jam, baru dapet kadonya. Untungnya, untuuunnggnyaa, lagi pada sale lho ! Tadi gw beliin electric shaver, lagi diskon 30%. Lumayan kan. Mudah2an aja papaku mengerti ya cara makenya, hehe..

Abis itu ke Harbour Town, superboii mau nukerin game di EB games. Waktu itu beli tapi baru 3 jam udh tamat, jadi tadi dia tuker sama game lain yang lebih susah. Enak bener ya disini bisa refund dan nge-trade barang dengan gampangnya. Pulangnya rada macet. Kira2 setengah jam baru sampe rumah. Cuma naro belanjaan sama ganti sepatu aja sih di rumah, abis itu langsung pergi lagi ke Curtin. Ada acara Pasar Malam.

Tapi gw di drop aja, superboii nggak ikut turun. Alesan utama gw kesini sih karena Wendy sama Odri pada buka stall disana. Rame banget-nget Pasar Malamnya. Gw sama mendi sampe pusing, jalan bolak-balik sana-sini ngeliatin makanan apa aja yg dijual. Seperti biasa sih, pasti ada sate. Tapi gw udh makan sore nya di city, jadi di pasar malam tadi cuma beli2 dessert aja.

Tadinya rencananya gw pulang sama anak2. Tapi ternyata superboii mau jemput. Yaudah, jam 11an pulang deh. Sekarang gw bener2 harus mandi, badan sama rambut gw bau asep bakar sate :(

The List of Things That Makes Me Feel Awful:

  • Meeting double-faced people, you can also call them backstabber, whichever more convenient for you. Whether you realize it or not, we ALL have met this kind of person in life.
  • Paid a friggin 75 bucks for a lousy haircut.
  • Being jobless. I don't have to explain why, it's just.... not easy being jobless. Oh thank God I have a temp job for now.
  • Say something hurtful to my loved ones.
  • Trapped in a conversation I never had intention of getting involved in. You know what I mean.
  • Logged on to my FB the whole day. It's like... I show the whole world that I don't have a life. Haha.
  • Getting involve in a tough argument. Oh that sucks, simply because I'm not a good it. I would prefer to do such thing in writing.
  • When my house is in such a mess. I live in a really small house here, with 4 girls living together in it, you can imagine how messy it could be.
  • Ironing.
  • Bugging my parents for something I CAN live without (i.e ipod, leather handbag, etc).
  • When I can't stop complaining about itsy bitsy stuff, while I actually already have more than enough.
  • Summer in Perth, when it reach 40 degrees.
  • Again, get a lousy haircut, yet I have to pay for it.

Pardon Me.


Halah halah.. Nemu foto ini di FB, baru di upload sama Niya. Foto jaman SMA ! Ya amplop liat aja muka gw masih jadul banget gitu. Maap ya masih ompong, abis cabut gigi gara2 pake braces. Muka dan rambut berminyak. Mana item banget lagi gw. Ini di kelas 3 IPS 1, lagi pelajaran agama sama Bu Qomariah. Setiap pelajaran agama, yang anak perempuan diwajibkan pake kerudung, yang laki2 pake kopiah. Baru juga Bu Qoqom keluar kelas bentar, kita udh pada berulah. Gw sama Tazman waktu itu sebangku, trus kita sok2 foto kawinan gini., satu kerudung dipake berdua. Nggak penting banget sih emang, namanya juga anak SMA. Hihi.


Look at Wendy!
Aaw so cute!

Tuesday, October 7, 2008


Ya ampun beser itu nggak enak banget ya. Hari ini sih mendingan, tapi kemaren tuh parah banget.. Dalam 3 jam masa' 5 kali gw pipis? Itu mengganggu banget lho. Apalagi kalo lagi tidur, nggak enak kan kalo sebentar2 harus kebangun gara2 pengen pipis. Gw nggak ngerti cara ngilanginnya gimana. Udh 3-4 hari begini. Emang sih udaranya lagi agak dingin, tapi dulu pernah lebih dingin daripada ini dan gw nggak beser tuh.

Kenapa ya kenapaa?

Next Vacation.

Oh mum. She's taking me to Melbourne after my graduation ceremony, again, to visit my brother. And of course, I'm excited. I did all the booking things just to get more of the pre-travelling-excitement. Current status:

- Flight. Return ticket for me and mum (Jetstar): confirmed.
- Accomodation. Travelodge Southbank, booked via for 3-10 Nov: being processed.

I can't wait. Yeah.

Sunday, October 5, 2008


Enak juga ya ternyata bisa online dari hp. Hihi, baru pertama nyoba nih, makanya jadi norak. Ini jg kebetulan aja di rumah ada wireless broadband, jadinya bisa free pake wifi nya. Coba kalo musti set internet dari providernya, kayaknya jadi mahal...

Ini iseng aja lagi berusaha pengen tidur tapi nggak ngantuk2. Biasaa, sebabnya cuma 1: karena udh kebanyakan tdr siang. Hihi..


Things I have PLANNED to do this weekend:

  • Iron my clothes.
  • Creambath, scrub my foot and so on..
  • Clean up my room.
  • Vacuuming living room.
Only one hour left (it's Sunday 11pm), and I haven't done any of those. Haha lazy dong yaah. Me and superboii had lunch together and we rent some DVDs. Oh, and we also went to IGA to buy a pack of smoked cheese. I tried it yesterday at Royal Show's free tasting dairy product (I hope none of their products use chinese milk which contain melamine), and it was DELICOUS. The best cheese I've ever tried! I thought smoked cheese was like some kind of innovation in cheese industry, until superboii told me that it's been in the market for ages. Ouch.

Anyway, the cheese I bought at IGA doesn't taste as good as the one I tried yesterday. Make sense for me, because Royal Show's cheese was sold at 20 bucks, and the IGA's one only cost me around 2 bucks. Hehe. Price comes with quality.

As for tomorrow, I'm working from 10-5.30. Yeah. No more boring days.

Friday, October 3, 2008

What Do You Think?

While at work, a guy came in to have a cup of latte. I knew him, because he comes to Michel's literally everyday. Twice - three times a day, to be exact. Honestly, I don't know why but I don't really like him.

So anyway, he called me and asked what I'm gonna do this weekend. Going to Royal Show, I answered. Guess what, he said "SO YOU'RE RICH, EH?"

That was a very RUDE comment for me. I don't even know him, hey! It's like, did he really think that I can't afford to pay the ticket and enjoy the rides and games? Okay, I actually have bought a discounted ticket for tomorrow, which cost me 10 bucks (normal price is 24 bucks). Does that make me RICH? I don't know with you guys, but if I were him, I wouldn't be dare to say something as insanely stupid as that.

That kind of comment often come from someone I barely know. Well, of course! Because the people I close with wouldn't be too discorteous to throw such an offensively shallow comment!

ps. maybe i'm just being overly sensitive. BUT! really, if you experience this kind of situation yourslef, you'll understand how impolite it feels.

Happy Eid Mubarak.

As we celebrate Eid Ul-Fitr
I would like to apologise for all the wrongdoings I have done in the past
May your heart be filled with joy and may you be blessed
with happiness and peace

Happy Eid Mubarak :)

Dear Am.

Hey my Am.
How are you? Where are you?
Is it just me, or you're really hiding from all of us?
I don't know what happen to you.
I don't know how your new life's been treating you.
I don't know if everything's okay.

Because I've never heard from you since last month.

The only thing I know is that you are in deep regret.
The only thing you wish every night is to be able to turn back time, which is impossible.
You've done the wrong thing, you've made the wrong move.
But maybe... you've made the right decision. Based on the wrong reasons.

I just hope that everything's on the right track.
I hope you could say "Yes" when I ask "Are you happy?"
But if you're not happy, tell me why. Let it all out.
Because you know I will always be there for you to listen.
And you can't lie to me, darling.
You can't lie to me.



Lebaran sebentar lagi :)

(Not) Everyone Want to Look Young

Aah, finally a weekend! This week feels like a very long week. But I loovee it. As I said before, I finally got a part-time job, at Michel's Patisserie, a cake and coffee shop. It's been fun working there, I don't feel tired and bored even though I'd been working for 30+ hours this week. Cakes have always been my passion and working with it everyday just makes me feel like finding my soulmate. Haha lebay.

Yeah anyway. I have to tell you one little fact that keeps bugging me: Am 21 but I look like 16. It didn't really bother me at the first place. But now that I try to be noticed as a woman, the way I look starts to be a burden for me. Why do I look so young? Is it because I'm tiny? Or the way I dress? Or my attitude?

Well, maybe I should start smoking or drinking alcohol, and take a 4-hour sleep everyday to create an eye-bag and dark circle around my eyes. Should I?

How Are You?

It's been a long time since the last time I posted my daily-life. Not much updates, except that I got a part time job. Yippie! Alhamdulilllah I finally have something to do during the day. This new workplace is really nice. The people are ah-ma-zziing, the tasks is not stressfull at all, the place was clean, and I don't required to do the cleaning or any other dirty stuff. Its fun!

By the way, I've just came to realize that Afgan got a great voice. Haha. I hate to admit it, but he really sounds like native singer when he sing You Give Me Something and Ordinary People. Just listen to the way he sing it and don't look at his face, because his voice sounds like a 'real man', while in reality he's just too... cute. Sorry.. Hehe.

I'm sleepy now. I woke up at 5.45am this morning to start working at 7. And it's all worth it :)

Another Award

I pass on the award to... you guys :)

Monday, September 15, 2008

Heyho Let's Go.

Sekarang udah nggak mellow lagi dong. Jadi hari jumat malem itu kita surprisin Teguh, ulang thn dia yang ke 23 apa 24 gitu (lupa). Surprisin nya di rumah Rina. Abis itu hari Sabtunya diajak Wendy jalan2 ke city :)

Akhirnya boy, setelah sekian lama nggak jalan-jalan... Seneng bener rasanya bisa liat Dotti, Basement, dan beli bubble tea *norak*. Kebetulan gw lagi nggak puasa. Pulang dari city, gw cepet2 masak (sambil maksa2 Wendy ntn Cloverfield) buat buka puasa sore nya. Gw bikin Brocoli Saus Jamur, hehe katanya sih enak.. Jadi acara buka puasanya itu diadain sama The Muchos Nachos, di Hillview Terrace. Abis masak, cepet2 mandi, jam 5.45 dijemput superboii, langsung capcuuss.

Lumayan sih seru juga banyak yang dateng, walaupun nggak semuanya gw kenal. Eeh terus ketemu Windy disana. Hahaha. Gw sempet message2an dan sms-an soalnya dia waktu itu nanya2 sekolah di Perth gimana dll, tp blm pernah ketemu langsung. Taunya kemaren malah nggak disengaja kenalan disana.

Hari minggu gw pun nggak kemana2. Ke chemist bentar deng beli pem****t, trus jajan chiki di toko korea. Malemnya superboii dateng, seperti biasa DVD night. Lalu hari ini gw sama Wendy ke Career Fair di Curtin. Nggak ada apa2 disana. Tempatnya kecil, company2 nya dikit banget dan hampir semuanya (98%) perusahaan oil, gas, mining, hospital. Accounting cuma ada 1. Sales and Marketing hampir nggak ada sama sekali. Adanya cuma recruitment agent aja yang nyari Marketing graduate.

Gw sama Wendy nggak lama sih disitu, cuma 15 menitan lah. Abis itu kita ke main cafe, janjian lunch sama Adi. End up nya cuma gw doang yang makan sih. Beli salmon sushi sama wedges with gravy. Asin banget boy gravy nya! Wendy udh makan duluan di tmpt kerja, Adi udh makan duluan sebelom kelas. Trus kita bergosip lah yaa.. Haa kangen banget deh. Udah lama nggak ngobrol seru2an gitu.

Curtin sepi banget. Gw sama Wendy sampe kaget. Baru beberapa bulan kita lulus, kok perubahannya udh banyak banget. Bukan perubahan dalam hal fasilitas baru lho. Tapi perubahan students nya. Kayaknya sekarang ini berkurang sekitar 40% deh. Trus semuanya tampang2 first year gitu, apa hari ini anak2 2nd year nya pada sibuk assignment ya? Pokonya uni tadi serasa highschool lah..

Nanti malem Ayu mau nginep sini. Sebelum tidur sih rencananya kita mau maraton ntn Gossip Girl Season 1 dulu. Hehe. Lalu besok kita mau drop2 resume di city. Sekalian ke immigration, mau nanya soal Bridging Visa gw yang nggak jelas nasibnya. Intinya beberapa hari ini gw happy lah, udah nggak kesepian lagi :D

Friday, September 12, 2008


Udah 3 minggu gw begini terus. Mostly di rumah nggak ngapa2in selain nyari kerja lewat internet. Minggu lalu masih mending. Gw masih sempet buka puasa bareng Gandes, Velly, Fyke. Trus sempet latenite juga. Minggu ini bener-bener gw seharian di kamar terus. Kecuali kalo buka puasa baru ke dapur. Rekreasi gw cuma ke Woolworths.

Sebenernya masalah utamanya bukan urusan nggak dapet2 kerja. Masalahnya gw kesepian banget. Dunia gw isinya cuma di dlm kamar ditemenin laptop. Sekalinya pergi, ke Woolworths. Dan dapur. Gw bener-bener stress banget rasanya. Bahkan temen ngobrol dan bercanda pun gw nggak punya.. Sumpah, hidup kayak gini rasanya nggak enak banget.

Pengen for good aja balik indo.

Happy Birthday.

Arya Adinda (12 September 1988)

Happy birthday, my dearly brother!
It's your 20th birthday. I wish that all your dreams come true,
May your day be filled with joy.

May you continue to be a loving brother and an obedient child to our parents, and continue to appreciate everything that comes your way.

Sorry we can't be there to celebrate it with you like the old days.
But surely we (me, mam and pap) pray for your happiness, your health, and your prosperous future. I love you !

Today's Quote.

"Aku minta pada Allah setangkai bunga segar, Ia beri aku kaktus berduri. Aku minta pada Allah binatang mungil nan cantik, Ia beri aku ulat berbulu. Aku sedih, protes dan kecewa... Betapa tidak adilnya ini... Namun kemudian, kaktus itu berbunga indah, bahkan sangat indah. Dan ulat itupun tumbuh menjadi kupu-kupu yang amat cantik. Itulah jalan Allah, indah pada waktunya :)

Allah tidak memberi apa yang kita harapkan, tapi Ia memberi apa yang kita perlukan. Kadang kita sedih, kecewa, terluka, tapi jauh di atas segalanya, Ia sedang merajut yang terbaik untuk kehidupan kita. Allahu Akbar, semoga kita termasuk dalam golongan orang-orang yang pandai bersyukur atas karunia dan nikmat Allah, Amin..."

Introducing, My Baby Girl.

Facebook came out with this addictively cute application called "Make A Baby", where you can create your imaginary (or virtual?).... baby. I gave it a try, created a baby girl called Aisya Nabella. Happy, cute, chubby, and smiley she is.

This game reminds me of Tamagochi. Remember the thrill you felt when you heard your little-egg-shaped-gadget beeping? It's either your time to feed it, or clean up its poopy, or bring it to the vet when it got sick. Make A Baby is not far different from that, except that you have to go online to see your baby, and there's no alert like beeping sound that Tamagochi had.

What I do with my Baby Aisya is breast-feed her, take her to a walk on a stroller, change her diaper, shop for her clothing, baby food, and her entertainment like taking her to a circus show or kids cruise, etc etc. Its fun, really ! I think I already have a mother instinct growing inside me!

And well, maybe its weird, but I feel like I'm bonding with my baby and I really really LOVE her. Haha. Am I being insane or what, I don't know. I check on her like 4 times a day, change her outfit everyday, and become worried when I see her health rate drops. I'm starting to understand her personality too. She prefers to go to a kids' gym class than to a circus show. She hates hot cocoa and herbal tea, but loves veggie puree. Her favourite sncak is mango sliced.. Aaw I miss her already!

Seriously, I need to have a real baby soon :P

A Lesson to Learn

I browsed into Indonesia Anonymous blog and found this breathtaking story about how unpredictable our life is, and how a single motto can change one's life. So please, spare your time to read this good story. Enjoy :)

Life Sentence

We had lunch appointment the other day, with a friend of a friend. And because the restaurant was at his building, we dropped by at his office. He gave us a little tour around the office and gave us a brief story of the company he owns. A medium sized business, quite successful. It does not make him a billionaire, but he certainly is comfortable. And very proud.

At one point, one man popped by and told us that he couldn't join the lunch. Something came up, he said. Apologized and left.
"My finance director," said our businessman friend. " A good man. A good friend too"
As the finance director left, he added:
"We used to compete, him and me. A tough one too."

"What? your finance director used to be your competitor?"

"Yes. A long time ago. We came from the same town, you see. Same high school. Both had no money to go to college, so we both started our own business. Obviously with so much similar background, we started a similar business. So we compete. Fiercely too, at times. Don't get me wrong. He's one of my best friend in high school. But when it comes to business, we compete each other like hell."

"And now he works for you? How did that happen?"

"I don't know really. He's always been very careful. Very prudent. I always thought he's better than me. You know, with him everything is so organized. Well-planned. Calculated. Compared to him I was such a mess. But somehow his business was not doing so well. In the end he got tired of it and offered me to buy it from him. So I did, and I asked him to join me in my company. Help me out with the finance side. He's good at that."

He continued:
"This is business, you see, and in business you can't plan everything. For me, as long as the plan meets my basic calculation, I would just go for it. He on the other hand, would wait until he can know more.
He's motto was always 'good things happen to those who wait'...

"Do you think that's a bad motto?"

"No, I don't. It's a good motto. I just don't think the sentence should stop there. I think the complete sentence should be:
good things happen to those who wait, and better things happen to those who act. "
Apparently, one additional sentence can really set your life apart from being an employee or an owner of a company.

The Dessert Curse.

Lately. Everytime I try to make my own dessert, it always came out to be something yuck. The sago was scorched, and the oreo pudding was not firm enough to be called 'pudding'. It came out to be an oreo custard, which I don't really like.

I would rather bake muffin than put my hands again on a pan with intention to make any kind of dessert.


Hari ini, gw + wendy + mendi bekerja keras bersihin halaman depan dan belakang. Di carport bok, daun2 kering banyak banget sampe full satu kantong plastik sampah.. Ckkckck. Lalu kita pindah ke belakang. Cabut2in taneman liar. Banyuaakknyaaa minta ampun yaaa.. Udah gitu daun2 kering dan pasir2 debu nya jg banyak banget. Buat halaman belakang aja perlu 5 kantong plastik sampah buat nampung semuanyaa oh em gee.

Habis itu gw bikin pudding oreo. Tp kayaknya gagal deh. Kemaren kan gw dapet ager2 bening. Jadinya gw pake pudding instant gitu. Karena ga yakin, gw tambahin gelatin. Haha ngaco banget langsung masuk2in aja ga pake takaran.

Sekarang udh jam 4. Buka puasa masih 2 jam lagi. Mudah2an nanti puddingnya enak buat bukaan :) Oh ya nanti mlm mau makan sm superboii. Tapi blm tau dimana sih... Sekarang gw kedinginan di dalem kamar. Haha. Ya. Postingan kali ini memang sangat random ya.

3:15 am

Just finished my sahur.. My tummy is full of creamy potato (yes, I eat creamy potato in 4 days in a row. and i still have one slice left for tomorrow), satay chicken, and 3 full-glass of water. I texted my bf goodnite, but now I can't sleep because I'm too full :P

By the way, I'm not that mellow anymore. You know, about my jobless condition. As I re-read my previous post, I realized that I may have been too afraid about my situation, in most annoyingly kind a way. And that's just so not me.

Although I don't know where my mind is travelling, I can feel myself attached. One well-connected cell in the greater organism of a perfect world, and it all work the way it should. If you feel the same about yourself, then good on you. We should be thankful for that.


Tuesday, September 2, 2008


Begini deh jadinya kalo nganggur. Nge-post blog teruss.. Gw udh hampir gila rasanya. Nggak ada kerjaan, nggak ada temen, sepi banget rasanya. Temen gw cuma laptop :(

Pertama, soal kerjaan. Kerja full-time jelas belom dapet. Tiap hari gw apply lho padahal. Kerjaan part-time pun blm dapet. Ini juga hampir tiap hari gw apply. Dan parahnya lagi, gw nggak tau sampe kapan begini terus. Kapan gw dapet kerja. Alhasil, gw jadi males keluar rumah selain untuk belanja groceries. Pikiran gw, udh nggak kerja, masa' mau foya2 shopping dan segala macemnya.. Lagian mau keluar jalan-jalan sm siapa coba. Phuh.

Kedua, kesepian. Superboii udh sibuk dengan kuliahnya. Housemate2 pada sibuk dengan kerjaan masing2. Yang lain? Mendi tiap hari ngantor. Adi juga msh sibuk kuliah. Sedih ya circle of friends gw gak berkembang. Itu2 aja. Sekalinya lagi pada sibuk, ya gw kesepian gini deh.

Gw sampe mencari-cari kegiatan gitu. Kemaren ini hampir tiap hari bikin muffin. Sampe orang satu rumah udh pada eneg kali liatnya. Haha. Trus akhirnya gw mikir, apply driving license aja kali ya mumpunag nggak ngapa2in ini. At least ada yang gw pelajarin dan gw baca lah tiap hari nya. Lalu gw mulai baca buku "Drive Safe - A Handbook for Western Australian Road Users". Biar asik, nanti gw mau baca bukunya di taman. Hehe. Sendirian aja tapi :(

Terus, gw juga pengen edit2 photo dong ya. Eeeh cd photoshop bajakan gw gabisa di install. Mau download yang trial juga entah kenapa ga bisa-bisa. Mau minta tolong Adi installin photoshop dia, msh blm ketemu juga waktu yang pas karena dia sibuk.

Ini rasanya gw lagi ada di downside of my life ya (exaggerated, hehe). Sumpah deh. Baru juga 3 hari terkurung di dalem rumah. Rasanya udah yang boseeeeeennnnnnnn banget-nget. Ya gw tau sih yang bisa mecahin masalahnya cuma gw sendiri. Either nyari2 kesibukan, atau nyoba menikmati aja keadaan yang kayak gini. Siapa tau kl gw udh dpt kerja nanti nggak bisa santai2 kayak gini lagi kan. Tapi tetep, gw depresi.

Sekian curhat dari saya.

The Wedding of My Dream.

Inspired by Lunatic Principessa's 10 Things I Will Prepare for My Wedding Day.

1. The Groom. Must be the one who can act as both my lover, and my bestfriend.

2. The Venue. A medium grand ballroom, decorated with dominant colour of white and gold. I'm not into garden party when it comes to wedding reception.

3. Timing. Anytime, as long as all of our loved ones can attend the wedding reception. Even though I am a truly Javanese, I don't want to be bothered with Siraman or Pingitan tradition. All I want is Wedding Prayer (pengajian) and Midodareni Night which will be held on the day before the reception. The Wedding Matrimony (akad nikah) and the reception will be held on the same day =D

4. The Speech. Call me cheesy but I love this phrase below:

  • "Today, I marry my bestfriend. The one I have laughed with and cried with. The one I have chosen to support, encourage, and give myself to, through all the days given to us to share. Today I marry the one I love."
  • "Today, I will mary my bestfriend. The one I will always turn to. Confide and be strong. In my friend and my lover."
5. The Guests. Sure it would be the Harpers and Lawsons, and the bride's and groom's bestfriends from kindy to college. Also, the Subandrio family :)

6. The Song. TWO WORDS by Lea Salonga, for sure !

7. The Gown. A stunning traditional broken-white Kebaya. For the bridesmaids, it would be a soft-pink-coloured kebaya. Hey I want them to look good too.. :)

8. The Photographer. Merwin from Moreno & Co Photography.

9. The Food. Mix of Indian and European. And Fish and Chips, maybe? Hehe.

Fasting - Day 1.

Alhamdulillah sekarang udah jam 3 dan gw nggak ngerasa laper atau haus sama sekali =D
Padahal biasanyaa, jam 11 aja perut gw udh kruyuk2. Asik.

Karena gw bener2 nganggur nggak ada kerjaan, jadinya tadi gw jalan aja ke Woolworths. Niat awalnya sih mau beli bahan-bahan buat bikin muffin (lagi-lagi muffin). Tapi abis itu berubah pikiran karena takutnya orang2 rumah udh pada bosen sm muffin gw. Jadinya gw nyari sesuatu yang menyegarkan buat buka nanti. Eeeh akhirnya nemu sago ! Sago itu sejenis pacar cina yang bulet2 pink itu. Bedanya, kl sago warnanya bening. Bikinnya gampang banget. Sago direndem susu selama minimal 2 jam, terus direbus sampe sagonya ngembang. Abis itu ditambahin gula. Jadi deh. Harusnya tadi gw juga beli semangka buat pelengkap sago tp lupa..

Trus gw juga beli bumbu instant creamy potato. Ini jg gampang banget bikinnya. Kentang dipotong2, dikukus bentar biar lunak, abis itu disusun di wadah pyrex. Trus disiram deh sama campuran susu + bumbu instant + grated tasty cheese. Lalu dipanggang. Hmmm, baunya udh enak banget nih.

Keluar dari Woolworths, gw ngeliat ada halal butcher. Dia jual marinated meat and poultry gitu. Trus gw nyoba beli 4 honey soy chicken stick, sama 2 potong barbecued lamb. Enak sih kayaknya..

Jadi, skenario buka puasa gw hari ini adalah sago untuk buka-an, dan meal nya creamy potato + 2 chicken sticks + ceasar salad (sisa kemaren). Yumm !

Yippie Kay Yay!

The following name and course title will appear on my Award Certificate, as shown below:

Bon Voyage.

My mum and dad are flying back to Jakarta. Their flight should have taken off by 8.40 pm, and surprisingly mum texted me at 10.30pm:

"Dit.. I'm on the aircraft already but we're not flying yet.. Something wrong with the engine.."

I can only pray and hope for them to arrive safely...

Create Some Layers.

Yesterday, I was tempted to cut my own hair. Hehe. My hair was medium-length without layers, flat and liveless. Boring. I just wanted to add some layers and make the back of my head looks a bit more puffy.

It worked out pretty well, I can say. But I'm not too fuzzy about my haircut anyway, so.. anything will do. Took me 15 minutes to snip-snip-snipping, and I really had fun with it.

ps. I've just uploaded the picture as requested by Mira.

Release me, please.

I'm so bloody tired.
Standing 5 hours straight without drinking and eating at all, got really busy with the customers. I didn't even get a chance to catch my breath. The worse thing is, the workplace is not fun as it used to be. So I decided to quit. I have no reason to stay, afterall.

And the conversation goes..

Me (A): Hi Nicole are you busy?
Manager (N): No, why?
A: Emm. I just need to tell you that I wanna quit. Next week.
N: (widely opened her eyes) Whooottt? Why? Why? Why?
A: ............... (seriously, I didn't know what to say, so I came up with an excuse that later turn out to be so wrong). Well, I'm going to move to Cannington next week. I think it's too far away from work.. So I...
N: Hey I live in Cannington too! Which part of Cannington do you live? I can come to pick you up, so we'll talk about it and re-arrange your roster on this friday, okay?
A: Well...
N: (she left already).

Oh. Funny. Now I have to make up a better excuse.

Satu Tahun.

Iya, besok setahun meninggalnya Jare. Time flies really fast ya. Rasanya baru kemaren deh. Semoga Jare selalu baik2 aja disana.

Kemaren gw baca diary kita pas SMA. Jadi kangen. Lucu banget isinya. Ngomongin cowok, ngomongin UAN, ngomongin les. Janjian mau jajan dimana sebelum les. Pokonya asik deh.

Menurut gw, punya sahabat itu penting. Mungkin kita nggak bisa grow old together. Tapi Jare udah ngebantu gw banget untuk grow as a person. Dia adalah salah satu dari sedikit orang yang menurut gw sangat-sangat baik. Tulus baiknya.

Kita suka gosip, tp dia nggak pernah jelek2in orang lain. Dia salah satu cw paling populer di sekolah, tp dia dengan senang hati bertemen bahkan menggila bareng si paling cupu sekalipun. Dia pinter, tapi nggak sombong. Dia cantik, tapi nggak jaim. Dia kuat, tp cengeng. Heheheh. Ya intinya gw banyak sekali belajar dari dia lah.

Salah satu cita2 gw adalah, ketika gw meninggal nanti, gw bisa dikenang sebagai orang yang sebaik Jare. Dan itu rasanya nggak mungkin deh. XP

Satu lagi. Umur ada di tangan Tuhan. I knew that. Tapi begitu gw kehilangan dia di usia yang masih sangat muda (19 thn), secara mendadak, rasanya waktu itu gw hampir nggak bisa nerima.
It took me more than a week to really let her go. Tapi sekarang, insya Allah gw udh ikhlas kok.

I miss you as much as I love you, Jare :)

This is for you, my superboii :)

Save From Myself

It's not so easy loving me
It gets so complicated
All the things you gotta be
Everything is changing
But you're the truth
I'm amazed by all your patience
Everything I put you through

When I'm about to fall
Somehow you're always waiting with
Your open arms to catch me
You're gonna save me from myself
From myself, yes
You're gonna save me from myself

My love is tainted by your touch
Well some guys has shown me aces
But you got that royal flush
I know it's crazy everyday
Well tomorrow may be shaky
But you never turn away

Thursday, August 14, 2008


My heart is blind.
I am feeling numb.
My sight that used to be so clear, has became blurry.
These two pieces of puzzle is no longer completing each other.

I am not afraid of losing.
I am afraid of hurting.
Because you don't deserve it.
Please tell me..
How can I let it go without hurting you?

I don't wanna be the one who push you down.
Because I'm falling for you.

Just Babbling.

Having a trouble sleeping, like always, I decided to write somehing in here. It's 2.40AM now, and I don't feel the urge to close my eyes for the next 8 hours, yet. And this time, I think I know why. Its because I'm hungry. I'm starving. Uh oh. Well its not the right time for me to eat though. So here I am, just stay on my bed, hoping that this starvation will be gone by itself, in a minute.

Tomorrow's gonna be a little bit fun, I guess. I'll be out to lunch with Mandy at Taka, and continued with a grocery shopping at Woolworths accross the road. I almost have nothing left in the fridge, so need to grab some bread and veggies and milk and whatever thing that will catch my eye... XP.

Anyway. At this kind of situation, I always have some random things in mind. Now I'm thinking about people's habit. Our habit. We JUDGE. We always do, right? I honestly hate those who judge others in an instant and make up a perception that certain others are considered 'a bad girl', or whatever... I hate that, but at the same time, I always tempted to do that too. I always try to think "Who am I to judge?", but still..

Why judging others too easily is not good for you? Simply because it makes us become malicious. And we don't want that, do we? I guess this would be my next resolution. To stop judging others is definitely not easy. But we can try. I can try :)

My tummy is a little upset now.

--counting sheeps put me to sleep, I hope--

This Thought.

I've been thinking about it for almost 2 months. Well what can I say.. The more I think about it, the more I want it... I'm sorry.

Back to Reality...

Ya ampunn.. Liburan kemaren itu bener2 bikin gw nggak pengen balik lagi ke Perth. Seneng bangettt rasanyaa. Gw suka Melbourne banget. Suka kotanya dan orang2nya. Tapi nggak suka biaya akomodasi dll nya, hehe. Selama disana, rasanya hidup gw isinya seneng terus, nggak pernah kesepian, ngerasa sendirian atau feel bored.

Gw suka jalan2 keliling city nya cuma buat ngeliatin buildingnya yang antik2. Kalo kata Mira, ambience nya kayak di Boston. Haha. Semua makanan disana rasanya enak semua. Kayaknya Melbourne itu punya banyak banget pilihan dessert deh. Sushi nya dong ya ampun, soft shell crab sushiiii ! Oh no.

Lalu disana ada San Churos, Max Brenner, Koko Black, Little Cupcakes, dan traditional Belgian waffle. Aaaaawww, sumpah semuanya enak. Lalu di Chappell St (spellingnya salah nih kayaknya..) ada KANPAI dengan seafood tepanyaki nya yang enak sekaliiiii. Astaga.

Begitu sampe Perth, rasanya sepiii banget. But somehow gw ngerasa orang2nya lebih ramah yah. Tapi yang bikin gw sangat malas tuh adalah the fact that gw harus kembali ke rutinitas yang dulu. Ugh. Rasanya membosankan. Gw harus hunting job lagi.. Harus ngerasain yang namanya sering banget sendirian di rumah. Tapi yaa that's life lah ya. Kalo mau liburan terus, duit gw lama2 abis juga dong. Hmmm, dilema sekali..

Intinya sih gw harus bisa menerima kenyataan bahwa sekarang ini bukan waktunya liburan lagi. Sekarang gw harus cari kerja serius biar bisa ngumpulin duit buat revisit Melbourne by the end of this year :)

Well well well.
Beruntung sekali ada internet disini.
Jadi gw bisa sambil liburan sambil apply2 kerja.
Semoga semoga semoga..

My holiday's been really fun. Thank you Arya, Mira and Yesa for spending their time accompanying me exploring the city :)

Although I still have a couple of things in mind..

Away for a Week.

I'm flying to Melbourne tonight =D

Denias, Senandung di Atas Awan.

One thing that came across my mind when I watched this movie was "I should have watched this a long time ago!", because it is indeed too good to be missed. No wonder it's been awarded some appreciation from many Film Festivals around the globe.

The storyline was quite simple. Based on true story (this words always caught my eyes when it comes to movie selection), this film illustrates the struggle of a boy named Denias to pursue his dreams for acquiring a proper primary education. He came from a remote area in Papua, where all the children could only get a limited access to school.
Long story short, he (literally!) walked a thousand miles to Papua's capital city where the qualified primary school is located. But its still a long way to go until he got accepted in that school..

I love the casts, the characters, the scenery (which is totally AWESOME!), and even the songs.
Well done, Ari Sihasale & Nia Zulkarnaen :)
*the layout always become messy whenever I upload picture:(*

I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just a Little Unwell.

Kepala cenut-cenut.
Mata blur.
Perut mules dan agak eneg.
Badan lemes.

Ugghh. Nggak enak !

All I Wanna Do..

I'm so happy right now. Finally I can really go to Melbourne, yeay! Just booked the ticket yesterday, and I was lucky enough to get the what-so-called cheapest rate. So I'll be departed on August 5th, and come back on 12th. During my visit, I'll stay in my brother's apartment, for free. Purrrrfffeecccctt =D

Mira has suggested me some best spots in Melbourne that I should go to. Collins St, Ballarat, Pancake Parlour, Cupcakes *forgot the name*, Cocoa Black, Max Brenner, Giant Wheel, Flagstaff Garden, etc, etc.. Aaaawww I can't wait! This is my first time going on a holiday by myself (without my parents around), so I'm really really excited. This time, my holiday will be all about taking pictures, food tasting, and probabbly shopping. Aheahhaehaha.. How fun is that?

Its not all about the 'fun' things, though. My brother's apartment is misserable. No bed, no tables and chairs, no tv, no internet, no microwave, no fridge. He moved in last month and got really busy with his work, so yeah, its quite understandable for me. BUT! I gotta try my best to make it look more homey and more livable before my Papa and my Mama coming on the 18th. 'Cause if they see how my bro lives in his 'home', they'd be so deep in shock their jaws would dropped down to the floor. Not good, not good..

So I guess I should rush him to Ikea or whichever affordable furniture store is around. Or even try eBay. Eheehehe. Well, well, well... Just hoping my brother will have a spare time for me and furnishing his apt.

Hohoho. It's 6 days to go!

Joseph Ashton Circus.

Finally we actually watch this cisrcus show, a super sweet treat from my superboii :)

The show was amazing. I was so overly excited to see the cute animals (dogs, ponies, and even goats!) and many other acrobatic attraction by the performers (clowns and those girls with elastic body?).

One thing that amazed me the most was the cute little boy who seemed to be the centre of the stage, whenever he came out. He's around 2 years old, and sooo extremely cute! He's the third left on the picture. I surely enjoyed the show. Thank you my boy!

Hari sabtu. Tadi gw sengaja bangun siang banget, jam 11. Haha. Udah kebangun dari jam 8an sih. Tapi maksa tidur lagi soalnya nggak tau mau ngapain jg kl keluar kamar.. Akhirnya sekitar jam 9.30 gw keluar karena denger Wendy sama Odri pada ngobrol2. Abis ikutan ngobrol bentar, gw masuk kamar lagi.. tidur.

Bangun2 main internet, abis itu sikat gigi & cuci muka. Trus langsung turun bikin EasyMac. Makan itu buat brunch, pake keripik korea. Enak. Pas lagi makan, anak2 pada mulai nylaian dvd Radit & Jani. Yaudah, gw ikutan ntn deh. Rada cheesy sih filmnya, tp gw smpt nangis dikit. Hehehe..

Dan sekarang ini udah jam 3.20 pm gw masih berpiyama. Abis ini mau mandi deh, trus belanja buah ke Woolworths depan rumah. Nanti malem juga nggak ada rencana tuh. Hari ini judulnya bener2 totally at home :)

Sepertinya gw pun nggak jadi ke Melbourne. Padahal udah ngajak temen2 ketemuan, udh ngatur tanggal. Untung belom beli tiket. Abis gw stress sih belom dapet2 kerja. Kalopun gw kesana, mungkin weekend doang dan itu blm tau kapan. Di satu sisi, perasaan gw tuh nggak enak kl liburan seneng2 tapi blm dapet kerja. Di sisi lain, kl udah dapet kerja, nanti nggak bisa liburan. Padahal udh dari lama banget gw pengen ke Melb. Udah hampir setahun nggak ketemu adek gw.. Huhu.

Besok sih rencananya gw mau ntn sirkus sama superboii. Nggak tau jg tuh sirkus mulai jam berapa. Kita go-show aja kesananya. Yah untung2an lah. Kl dapet ya sukur, nggak yaudah.

Pengen Melbooouuurrrnnneeeee.

Hehehe lagi iseng, gw buka2 website primbon. Gw penasaran aja sama karakter gw kl diliat dari tanggal lahir, hari lahir, dll. Gw lahir 29 January 1987. Ini dia hasilnya:

- Punya kekuatan besar, yang bisa digunakan either utk membawa kehormatan atau kehancuran bagi diri sendiri dan orang lain.
- Berlaku ekstrem dalam segala hal.
- Hebat dalam cinta dan penilaian (aha!).
- Rumah penting bagi kebahagiaan gw, tp gw suka murung dan tidak mudah hidup bersama gw (oh no..).
- Terlalu terpaku pada mimpi, aspirasi dan rencana.

Berdasarkan hari (kamis):

Life is full of choices... and uncertainty.

Trouble Sleeping.

I can't sleep. I can't sleep.
Counting sheeps might help?
Any idea, anyone?

Emm. I prefer to spill out my today's activity than counting sheeps. Hehe. Me and superboii actually had plan to see a circus show near Carousel this morning. I was so excited until we found the banner "NO SHOW TODAY" at the main entrance. Shoot. Just not my luck, I guess.

Full of disappointment, we continued our search for a laptop repair centre. Superboii's laptop is not working (blackout on the screen). There are only few around Perth and we end up with rejection from here and there, because the only only one who can repair the laptop is the manufacturer. And as far as I can remember, I've never seen Compaq/HP's rep around here. Ugh.

Disppointment + disappointment = bad mood.

After that, we headed to Bentley because I need to buy meat(s) to stock up my fridge. And then he drove me home, and he left. Just like that. At home, I tried to get busy with applying for jobs through SEEK.

The only thing that has successfully lifted up my mood is probably the dinner with Rangga, Gandes, Fyke, Vely and Aqid. I had fun, really. I just met them two days ago actually.. But they're very friendly and fun to be with. Hehe.

Kay then. I'm going to sleep now. Good night, anyone!

The Dinner.

Aha! My superboii is finally back in Perth! Owh I missed him so much. Too bad that he touched down on Friday, when the weather was awful. The wind blows like 100km/hour, so you can imagine how frustrating his flight was. Its worse than riding a rollercoaster, he said.. Hehe.

Yesterday, he took me out to dinner in Izumi Japanese Rest. And here's some snap of the food,, yummy!

Salmon Teriyaki

(hiks, the only pict I could upload)

New Friend - Old Friend

I just chatted with an old friend. Well, not an "old friend" old friend, we went to the same junior high but never hang around or even talked to each other those days. Maybe that's because we never been in the same class. But he somewhow listed on my friend-list in FB.

So he greeted me through FB chat, told me that he met my brother today (he resides in Melbourne). As the conversation goes, I realized that I couldn't recall anyting about him at all. Its funny that he recognized me back then. And it made me feel bad that I should honestly said that I had no idea who he was. I think the only reason why he recognized me is because I was bestfriend with the most popular girl in school. Haha.

I told him that I'm planning to visit my brother in Melbourne next month, and he promised to be a tour guide during my visit. So I asked for his number, and misscalled him. Guess what? He said he was surprised that my name appeared in his screen when I called. Weird, eh? I never talked or chatted with him so how did he get my number? Is that the latest technology or what??

We chatted for more than an hour, it feels like I was chatting with a long-lost friend. Felt like I was talking to someone I knew for years, and its funny because technically we haven't met. So I'm kinda excited to meet this 'old friend'.

Owh I can't wait to see my brother in Melbourne, and stroll down the city with a pocket camera to capture its best spots. And I'm gonna meet some old friends in there too: Mira, Emon, Sari, and Yesa. Yeay!!

Gossip Girl Fever.

I might be the latest person to find out how cool Gossip Girl is. As part of W's influence, I got so much into it I watched all the episodes from season 1 in 2 nights. Here's are some of my favourite quote:

Blair Waldorf (to Jenny): "If you wanna be part of this world, Jenny, people will talk. Eventually, you gotta decide if all this is worth it."

Chuck Bass: "I'm.. Chuck Bass"

Dan Humphrey: "When prince charming found Cinderella's slippers, they didn't accuse him of having a foot fetish"

Rufus Humphrey: "You already lost my trust. And now you're gonna lost my respect too."

And my favourite scene is when Dan told Serena all the reason why he loves her. Aaaww. That was just super romantic! When a guy come to you and says "I love you", you should ask him what makes him loves you, because you want to believe him. If he couldn't give you the answer, then he's just not that into you. Am I right?

(Not So) Boring Jakarta - Part 4

Udah direncanain dari jauh-jauh hari nih, berhubung Faizul (temennya si pacar dari Kuching) lg liburan di Jakarta, gw sama si pacar mau nemenin dia jalan2 ke PIM. Skenarionya: si pacar nganter bokapnya ke kantor - jemput gw - jemput Faizul - ke PIM. Dan dia pagi banget yaa dateng ke rmh gw jam 9.20! Hahahaha, biasanya jam 9.30 gw baru bangun..

Yaudah, abis itu kita langsung ke Sari Pan Pacific jemput Faizul, dan memberikan sekotak kue2 dari mamaku buat dia. Langsuunngg ke PIM. Sampe PIM masih pagi, jam 11 kurang. Masih sepii banget. Trus kita muter2 aja mondar mandir dari PIM 1 - PIM 2. Gw beli setrikaan di Ace Hardware. Faizul shopping. hihi. Abis itu langsung laper, makan deh di food court.

Jalan-jalan lagi, capek lagi. Akhirnya ngopi di Regal, di ruangan yg smoking room ya ampun pulang2 badan gw bau rokok semua. Singkat cerita, kita pulangnya misah, si pacar jemput bokapnya ke kantor, gw dijemput supir, sekaligus nganter Faizul ke Senayan City karena bokap dan adenya dia msh disana. Lucunya, pas di mobil kan ada lagunya Yovie Nuno yang "Dia Milikku", si Faizul afal lho.. Hahaha, dia yang dari Sarawak afal lagu indo sementara gw baru pertama kali denger lagu itu.

Pulangnya rada macettttt. Biasaaaa Jakartaaa :(
Begitulah kisah hari ini...

(Not So) Boring Jakarta - Part 3

I spent the whole afternoon at Plaza Senayan with Maya. We started the 'tour' with browsing some good-quality books at Kinokuniya Bookstore (I end-up with purchasing Hardly Working - somekind of chicklit), and finally sit together at Starbucks just to have a little chit-chat and a sip of coffee. Oooo, I miss Starbucks! The Hazelnut Latte was awesome and I just couldn't get enough of it! Hehehe.. Anyway, this what-so-called 'little chit-chat' lasted for almost 2 hours! Girls oh girls..

We're also walking around the mall just to check out what was on sale at Metro, Sogo and Mango. Not much. I got a cute green blouse from Mango, but was failed to get a plain-white-tee for Wendy. Instead, I could only see plain tees in cream, shocking pink, and shocking yellow! Uh-oh.. Big no-no.

Finally I decided to go home, and as usual, the traffic was terrible. When I got home, daddy was ready with indonesian satay that had been modified into an African Lamb Satay. Hahaha. He asked our maid to took off the satay sticks and mix the meat with onion, salt and garlic on a hot pan. Not bad. Taste good. Ooh I'm stuffed nooww :)

What Women Do for the Sake of "Beauty"

Goossshhhh. Apparently being a "real" woman is not easy. There are times when we don't care about how we look, and people will go "iih, jadi cewe kok gitu. nggak ngurus diri amat sih..". However, when we're really in the mood of taking care of ourselves and try hard to look good (when I say "look good", that means "do everything to look like Gisele Bundchen".. hehe, kidding..), AND we don't mind to be hurt a bit (waxing our legs, plucking the eye-brows, facial, scrubbing..), THE GUYS WON'T EVEN NOTICE!

Even when I put on some make up, my boyfriend gave me this funny look and asked silly questions like "what did you do to your cheek that makes it look very RED?" or "why did it take hours for you to put those (makeup) thing on? you look weird, honey..", and ended the night with "for next time we go out, you don't have to wear makeup, ok? pleaaseee.."

And trust me, I really didn't put too much make-up on!


So I was thinking, what's the point of doing all of these? But I'm kinda addicted with waxing my legs now, and plucking the eye-brows, hihi. Afterall, I guess we girls do these thing to other girls, instead of to attract the guys.

(Not So) Boring Jakarta - Part 2

(photo courtesy

Aaahhh.. My beloved daddy's just bought me this incredible digital camera! I've been searching on the review for this one in the internet and found that its rated 83 out of 100, with a high rate for the "good value for money" description (according to this site). I'm so happyy.. My old camera is still in perfect condition, but the picture it produced isn't sharp enough and the resolution is quite low. Me love my new camera so much, thank you Daddy :)
