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:

Current Wish.

Nokia E71.

I've been eyeing this super phone for a while. Look at the colour! The shape! The big screen! Uh-oh.. In two months, baby.. In two months..
I want youuuuuu!

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

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 !
