Oh! Nooo..

Huff. What a day. Hari ter-tidakbersemangat ditambah mood yg udh kaya roller coaster. Plus rasa kantuk yang juga berlebihan. (_ _")

To complete my day, celana bahan yg udh bertahun-tahun menemaniku bekerja, pake acara jahitannya robek sajaah di bagian pahanya sekitar 10cm. Uhuhuhuuu.. Panic attacked. What to do.. What to do.. I didn't bring any safety pin (padahal di rumah ada segudang). Sempet berpikir, cuek aja gitu yah, harusnya kan ga ada yang nyadar. Mmmh, tapi setelah diperhatikan baik-baik. Kalo lagi jalan, terlihaaaaaattt jelaaaaas. Hiks. Tapi berkat teman seperkantoranku yang cantik baik hati dan idenya luar biasa, setidaknya hari ini tidak berakhir mengenaskan. Akuuu selamaaaat!!! ;p

On behalf of my colleague, here's a tip for you, if your pants happened to be like mine today.

As you can see it on the pic above, you can easily guess what did i use in substitute of safety pin. Yup. It's a stapler. Jahitan yang lepasnya tinggal di-stapler ngikutin jelujur benangnya. Easy dan aman. Beres deh. Selamat sampe pulang ke rumah. Hihihiii.

Here's a quote, mmh, a poem suits it more, I think. Accidentally found it in a boring book ;p
Never ask of money spent
Where the spender thinks it went
Nobody was ever meant
To remember or invent
What he did with every cent

Korban Iklan Part II

Yuhuuu.. Back to this ice cream. Now with different flavor. Chocolate Truffle. Indeed, this one is so much better than a classic one. You really should try it.

A perfect match for hot sunny day (owh, it's melting!)

Pangandaran dan sekitarnya

About my last vacation to Pangandaran. Here's the review. Due to my laziness, I just finished this review by now, should've wrapped it weeks ago. Lemme start with the accommodation. My family and I were staying at Laut Biru Resort Hotel. It's located at Pantai Barat Pangandaran. For th
ose who have never been there, Pangandaran is a bay -if I may say so-, it has two coasts, East and West. If you wanna see sunrise, then go to the east, and vice versa if you wanna see sunset.

Okay, back to Laut Biru. Since it was a family trip, I didn't know for sure about the hotel's rate per night. All I know was, my Dad told me that if someday I went to Pangandaran, just stay at that place. One room costs approximately IDR 500K per night (it consists of two king size beds, a TV, an AC, a porch outside the room complete with small coffee table and two chair, a bathroom with toilet, hot-cold shower, a bathroom sink and a quite huge mirror). Oh I forget to tell ya, it includes breakfast for 4 (four) persons. You really can share that big room with your buddies! There's also a swimming pool and a jacuzzi (which I forgot to take pics of 'em).

Oh! Here's a suggestion for you, don't choose a room with beach view, cos what you're only gonna see is this:

For food, just go to Pantai Timur. Find Pasar Ikan, in that place, you can find quite many of seafood restaurant. By mean restaurant, please save yourself from expecting it to be fancy, but I can assure you those seafood 'family' are fresh (sure they are, it's next to the sea *rolling my eyes*), its taste quite so-so, a bit far from authentically Balinese seafood yet it successfully made my belly bloated.

I don't think there's much to do at Pantai Pangandaran, but yes, you can ride an ATV, do water sports just like in Bali, watch sunset and sunrise, and eat fresh seafood. Or you can rent a bike, and ride around the coasts. But don't expect some crowd here. My cousins and I went for dinner around 8 pm, and outside our hotel was somehow quiet, not many stores and cafes around there, hmm, I don't think there were any (hotel cafes aren't included). There were lots of hotel and motel vacancies also, which explains the tranquil night. So you better have many traveling buddies to avoid the dullness.

To watch sunrise, you need to make sure your visit wasn't in the rainy season, cos when it's gloomy, there's nothing you could see. Only dramatic clouds above the offshore. Sure it's still a beautiful view, indeed. But watching sunrise is something cannot be replaced, don't you think? That's why I promise myself to chase another sunrise. Soon. *crossingfingers*

gloomy sunrise at Pantai Timur Pangandaran

Alright, back to my suggestions, if you're wandering at both beach, East and West, somebody will offer you a visit to Pasir Putih. Just say yes, it's near from both beach, and will only take few minutes to get there. But don't forget to bargain the trip fee. You're gonna sail by traditional boat, each boat can only consist of five persons plus the driver (or whatever they're supposed to be called). The water is clear, you can actually swim or do snorkling around Taman Laut.

a glimpse of Pasir Putih

If you had quite a lot of spare time, you might wanna do another sightseeing at natural reservation at Pasir Putih beach. I heard there's an interesting cave inside it.

Another destination worth seeing near Pangandaran:

at Sungai Cijulang, way to Green Canyon
-taken from my sister's photo album-

super fun and thrilled, too bad the water run too swiftly, I didn't have that too much guts to swim ;p
-taken from my sister's photo album-

Cukang Taneuh, known as Green Canyon, it's like a river with beautiful green forest view on the left and right side. I sort of felt like I was at somewhere in Kalimantan, wondering when that Anaconda would emerge and eat us all. Okay, kidding, there are only (ONLY??) small snakes and biawak (small crocodiles), according to site's guide.

Batu Karas, here's another beach near Green Canyon, I don't know why many of my friends are falling in love with this place, cos I prefer Pasir Putih to it. Maybe because of its huge wave, I heard it's one of the best place to surf.

Batu Karas, Cijulang

PS: our guide at Green Canyon said there's one hidden beach not far from it. He said a foreigner found it and not many people aware of it (including me and my family). UNFORTUNATELY, I forgot the name of that hidden beach. Shoot. I think it's sort of sounded like BulakBenda. Maybe. Sorry.

Chocolate High

I think this song is simply beautiful. Got to have this as my wedding song :)

Yeah yeah yeah yeahhhh
Ooooh, Ooooh
If we make each other happy, then we just can't lose

I don't mean to be decadent
I might sound like a hedonist
But the simplest way I can put it
You become a habit
The more I consume, the more I gotta have it

Ain't no such thing as too much
If you gave me everything it'd never be enough
My black coffee with sugar no cream in the morning
You're my super double caffeine dream yeah

Your precious darkness got me so strung out
Aand lovin' the way that you got me so wide open, my babydoll
Jonesin' and fienin' under my skin
My nerves are screamin' when you're not here
See baby I need ya sugar, you're so delicious

There is somethin' about your love
That makes me just want to open up
Your flavor is the sweetest thing in life
I'm addicted to your chocolate high
Cause I want you, and I know that you want me
So let's stay close like we supposed to be
And just get high off our own supply
I'm addicted to your chocolate high

I be trippin' in so many ways if I
Go a single day without a taste of your love
The finest cuisine of today's world
Five stars, oh you're so gourmet girl

I crave you, I want you
Every cell in my body needs you
Tasty like Hershey's and Nestle
You're rich like Godiva boy you just so sexy

(Repeat Chorus)

Your flavor is the sweetest thing in life
And I don't ever want to come down
I'm addicted to your chocolate high
Oh yeahhhhhh

Talking to myself

Why in the world it's just too hard for me to keep these in mind:
Don't use high heels to an outdoor party. Aside from hurting your legs (cos it's unbelievably difficult to walk with heels on a ground), you're also gonna risk your heels to ruin.
And don't use something warm if the party were held in the middle of the day. Sure because it's hot, silly!
Moreover, bear in mind to wear lotion anti-nyamuk. Especially when the party was held next to a small river complete with bunch of trees and tall grass.

Kucing Hilaaaang..

Few days ago, that little creature successfully made all my family members got panic. Chester'd been gone since the night before. Even Mba di rumah pun ikutan panik, nyari2 tu kucing sampe ke gang belakang rumah. She came with disappointment. Chester wasn't around.

As my Dad and I arrived at home, Chester hadn't coming back home. While we're speculating about any chances that Chester might be coming home, there's a blurred sound from the outside, blurred meow.. And there it goes. Tiba2 muncul out of nowhere. Not as usual, tho. Not asking for food with pitchy meow, just sit and meow-ing slowly.

The funny thing about this, was my family's assumption regarding where's Chester had been leaving. My Dad assumed Chester went to play with his girl (if you think cats do not have girl or boy, you got it all wrong mate). Mom thought that someone kidnapped Chester (this, I disagree, I don't think no one would want to keep that silly dirty cat). My sister thought Chester got accident and died (really really relieving, *sighed*). While me, thought Chester forgot his way back home, mengingat how silly he is.

Gosh, my family, a bit weird aren't we? Hahaaa..

Thanks God, until now Chester's still safe at home. Smoga ngga aneh-aneh lagi tu kucing.

Korban Iklan

Berburu the famous, most wanted ice cream nowadays. MAGNUM-WALLS. Temen-temen kantor pada ngidam, while me? Super kepo about it. Setelah jalan kaki ke Riau Junction with zero result, then something popped in my mind. Sepertinya ada pabrik (ato officenya, dunno) somewhere near my office. So off we went to that place, with full of hopes and dreams (ini mau kemanaaa siiih??). Then I saw Walls sign not far from Taman Flexi Dago. Believe it or not, cuma ada satu freezernya walls di depan sebuah WARTEG. Yup, warteg (which is good, coz I finally found another place to go for lunch), kecil pula freezernya, dan isinya hanya ada tu eskrim. ;D

the famous ice cream

Nyamnyamnyam. Waiting for terompet bunyi. Few minutes. Nope. Gak ada. Apalagi terusannya yah, lebih gak ada. No super huge poster. No super special treat. Just.. an ice cream. So far, I can only say, that the MAGNUM was just like many Wall's ice cream. The secret recipe is on its Belgium Chocolate. The vanilla ice cream was so-so.

mouthwatering? no? reallyyy??? ;p

abis deh.. me still want that belgium choco!!

Hello December!

Gosh, time flew too fast, I supposed. The past two weeks I'd been drowning in a so-called busy season at the office. Added to that, some job interview I must attend (which unfortunately another failure I must faced), and a family gathering. The last one, surely is my favorite among those that absorbing my energy.

By the way, in the time I wrote this, I'm a bit upset of something. Nah, not because I didn't get another job that I pursued, -somehow I get used to failures-, but due to something else. Something I rather not to write it down here.

Oh, well, to cut the time, I better start writing.

Before that, lemme greet you a Happy December. Lots of you going on vacation this month, aren't you? Happy vacation for you. And to my friends who gonna tie the knot this month. Hope everything runs well. The D-day and life after that. And to those who still single, guess it's a good start to get mingled. :D

Kampung Melayu ≠ Kampung Rambutan

So here's a story of a sok-ingetan bagus-padahal-pelupa girl. One thing led me to Pondok Kopi on a bright Saturday morning (with lots of moaning and yawning, surely). Decided to go there with a cab, since I have zero clue about the place I intended to visit. Singkatnya, I've made it to Pondok Kopi after tanya sana-sini. Things were wrapped, and it 2 o'clock already. I decided to go home by bus (simply karna takut duitnya ga cukup kalo naek taksi lagi, secara hampir pasti maceeet bukaan sabtu sore di jakarta). Setelah tanya2 sama orang2 how to get to Blok M, I sighed. Haruus ke Kampung Melayu dulu, then ask someone there. Double sighed.

Ah yaa, before I moved on, there's a drama behind I-decided-to-go-home-by-bus thing. Heavy rain was pouring as my business was done, I was having my 1st day period so I was dying to lay my back on the bed, and the perfect part was, my boyfriend texted me that he's gonna sleep for a while. Hmmmppff. I was in the middle of nowhere dan menderitaah, and he's asleep. *to-ta-lly-up-set* Okay, he's sick, I know. Gatau daerah pondok kopi, that, I know it too, his car just got fixed, I know that too. Tapi yaah, namanya lagi es-mo-si. In between pengen marah2 and I've no choice other than haruuus menjelajah sisi lain Jakarta yang sebelumnya belum pernah terjamah sama sekali. Hell yeah, it was no fun at all. Pengen nangis iya banget.

Moving on.. I made it to Kampung Melayu after all. Bersama dua orang teman di tempat yang tadi yang sama-sama pulangnya ke arah Kampung Melayu. Satu orang turun di deket Halim, satu lagi bareng turun di Kampung Melayu. As I get there, a bit confused. "Perasaan dulu pas kesini ga kaya gini deh".

Dan jiwa sok tau gw pun kambuh. Instead of asking which bus is going to Blok M, I told my friend that I changed my mind, and wanted to take a bus which directly goes to Lebak Bulus by toll road. Teman gw yg baru gw kenal itu dengan sabarnya bilang kalo dari Kampung Melayu nggak ada yg langsung ke Lebak Bulus. While me, keep persisting, kalo jurusan itu ada, dulu gw juga pernah naik jurusan itu. "Biar gw cepet sampe" That's all I could think about. Si temen gw ini masih dengan sabar ngadepin gw, "kita liat aja deh ada apa nggak bus nya. Gw temenin cari dulu deh, kalo gw sih angkotnya banyak, santai. Yuk." How sweet she was, wasn't she? Then she pointed her finger to one bus, jurusan Kampung Melayu-Blok M. "Lo mending ke blok m aja deh." Berhubung bus udah depan mata, then I nodded. Last thing she said was, " Eh, lo hati-hati yah." Hehehehe.. Thankies temaan..

As I sit on the bus, still struggling to remember, which bus I took few months ago. And still confused, the terminal was different as I remembered it. Then, voila. I remembered something. Waktu itu gw dari Cikampek mau ke Jakarta dan berenti di.......KAMPUNG RAMBUTAN. Not Kampung Melayu. *toyor kepala sendiri for being super duper silly.

One huge conclusion for me that day. Kampung Melayu is waaaaaaay different from Kampung Rambutan. Noted.

The only thing that made me excited to work today was my team mates and I had a plan to taste a new (for us)eating place near our client's office. Actually I wanted to come to that place since my first assignment few days ago, cause of its eye-catchy name and poster which put on its window (signed by Pak Bondan-Wisata Kuliner). But some said that place is quite expensive, so we're waiting until our payday.

And today's the day :)

The three of us came to this place. Oh, forget to tell you, the restaurant's name is "Ayam Seuhah"(1). It's not a fancy restaurant, using a part of an old building, in the center of Bandung (it's located at Jalan Asia Afrika, not far from zero km), makes me even eager to eat at that place again.
We ordered Ayam Seuhah, and tumis genjer(2).

(see? that poster really does a good ad)

The chicken (I think it's a broiler since it's big) was 'covered' with spicy (I mean, really spicy) sauce and then grilled. And it tasted yummmmmyyyy... I mean, if you're a spicy food lover, then you'll know the feeling as you taste a really hot spicy food, you just can't stop eating though you can feel your tongue almost burn.
Honestly I can be too much objective giving review on tumis genjer, for me it always tastes good. :)

(sorry for blurry pic, I'm too hungry to take a good pic)

Here's my menu:
One piece of breast/leg of ayam seuhah costs IDR 14k
One portion of tumis genjer costs IDR 6k
One portion of rice costs IDR 4k
A glass of hot tea for free
A glass of sweet ice tea for IDR 3k
A small cup of sarikaya costs IDR 3k
*To spend that much on weekdays, is just too much for me :(

Oh, for dessert, you should try its sarikaya. Tastes soft and sweet. Lovely. Quite similar to my mom's made.

But I'll certainly eat there again, to taste the restaurant's fried chicken with sambel terasi. Well, my mouth's watering as I thinking that ayam. Hahaa..

(1) Seuhah is Sundanese, it means an expression of someone upon something he/she ate which was totally hot and spicy (I hope I explain it properly ;p)
(2) Genjer is one of kind of green veggies. My mom said it's good for our digestion.

Gloomy Sunday

Do we all deserve a second chance? I personally think that everyone deserves a second chance. Not that I believe all people will indeed change, but who knows, right?

Some think, giving somebody, who's apparently making mistake(s) before, is gambling and such a waste. I'm not with them, but to be faced the situation where you really want to give someone a second chance yet you're not supposed to, yet you're not able to, that's killing me.

That situation makes me think, maybe everyone indeed deserves a second chance, only if the circumstances are suitable for that. Most of the time, it doesn't work that way. Life goes on and everyone opens their new page(s) then writes new sentence(s). Moving on. That's what people do. And when a new life comes through and they are happy about it, do you think a past could hold them for what they have now?

When we made a brand new decision regarding our lives, that also means the drawer full of past are closed, locked, and the drawer's key must've been thrown away. Means: there are no "U-turn" anymore. No matter how bad you want it to take that turn, there's just no chance, and you yourself won't allow you to do such thing.

I believe that people do make mistakes, as they realised it, sometimes, there's just no second chance for them, there's only an irritating regret left behind. And there's nothing they can do about it other than joining to move on.

One lesson learned from today's tears. Don't you ever give up on something you know you need and want the most. Put away your ego. Put away your self-centered idea. Put away your fear and indecision. That moment. That time. Don't waste it. You never know if that only comes once in your lifetime.

So don't complicate it by hesitating.
This is tailor made. What's the sense in waiting?

Hello there, Salmon Sashimi!

Today wasn't a big day at all. But somehow important to me. I've got a much more assurance about something and quite, nah, really happy. Everything was running so well, I didn't even feel any burden upon it. So I guess it was meant to be. *amin*

To complete my happiness today, the soft and melting salmon sashimi has finally made its way to my mouth again after three months sushi-fasting.

Yup, I ate sushi tei again *overwhelmed*, with my nemo and lil sis. And just to made it perfect, finally I experienced to be seated at second floor at Sushi Tei Bandung (it's the 1st time, always wanted to seat there, but never had any chance before).

Left picture: my right view, lovely isn't it?
Right pic: sushi bar from where I sit

Left pic: The warming Agedashi Tofu
Right pic: Tuna Salad Crispy Mentai (this never on menu list, you should just ask waiter for it)

Yup, the night was perfect. Love it. Love it. Love it.

Now I know why I should be grateful for anything. My new client's office is located quite near Alun-alun Bandung. And lucky me, it means I can just walk to reach my favorite bakery, Sidodadi. This place is so old school. My mom told me that my granny also loved this bakery. And it's cheap!! For mocca flavor (my favorite) only cost Rp 3K, and the size is more or less similar to coffee bun at RotiBoy. The other flavor, choco-cheese (my other favorite), chocolate, krenten (roti kismis), and many other flavor, the prices are vary but won't be too far from Rp 3K.

(don't judge the store by its sign and door ;p )

(oooh, look at those bread.. yumyum)

(mmm, yeah, I was a bit overspending)

Busy Week

Welcome peak season. Welcome files, the heavy odner, pretty much dust in documents, new and old clients, eyes lock in monitor and of course, the unbelievably-too-many-rows-and-columns spreadsheet (I personally like it better when I call it, spreadsh*t).

Well, those are parts of my job. Not that I hate it, but the last three months, I've been practically doing nothing at the office but playing games, browsing, chit-chatting, or watching movies. So you can imagine how my brain froze itself.

Then, the heavy workload came. All I know, the first day I worked at my client's office, I got swirly dizzy. As I touched my head, I think it burnt inside. Hmm, poor my little brain. Leave alone these tiring eyes. Okay, lemme tell you something, I used to sit in front of monitor for hours just to browse something or playing games or twitting. But the funny thing, as I opened my eyes to see those numbers and any other datas, that's just completely made my eyes sore. Tsk. How could that happen? Weirdo.

'Kay, since this will keep happening for the next four to five months, better I get used to it like before. Dear little brain dan tiring eyes, SEMANGAT YAK!!

Sat.. Sat.. Saturday..

So finally I'm meeting you again, Saturday. It's weekend. And there WAS a plan today's gonna be a whole-day dating with my nemo. And the whole things about Bandung's birthday parade ruined my lovely plan. Today, Bandung's celebrating its #200years birthday (actually, this is only the celebration, its birthday was on 25th of September), dan Pemdanya, cleverly, spend another government budget on this event with those kendaraan hias parade things (instead of benerin jalanan bolong2 and the on-and-off traffic lights) whiiiiccchhh surely bikin macet jalanaaaan.

Well, nemo's still coming. He's on his way here, actually. And me? Haven't taken a bath for sure. Hahaaa... Been thinking what we're gonna do. Yeah, there's something on my tod's agenda. A little secret between us (yeah, right), hope I put a check on that.

Hmm, I think I'm gonna take him to some new places (Selasar was actually still on my list, since the -kok selasar lagi?- things came from his mouth, means I MUST find another cozy place). Mmm, nothing pop up in my mind at the moment, maybe I'll count on my impulsive thoughts to decide.

Alright then, gonna take a bath and waiting for my rocket to come, eh, waiting for my nemo to come. Hope he didn't get trapped in the terrible traffic. Hope today'd be another lovely weekend.

Happy weekend ;)

Oh, btw, I was gonna get Chester showered, but this morning Chester just ran away as he saw me. Oh, well, again he knew what I planned for him. Bad kitty.

Buon Appetito!!

In the middle of a super sunny day, my cousins along with my sister, my nephew and I went for a lunch. We picked La Cucina. It is located at Jalan Ternate, Bandung (just googling it or see foursquare for details). I'd never been to this place before, but my sister said it's a nice place to relax and take pictures. So to that place, we went. I've to say, I like the ambience, the sofa is nice and cozy, but the table was way too small (if you ordered only drinks, then it wouldn't be a matter). My cousin said it's like the cheaper version of Pepenero (although I very disagree this place is categorised as cheap). Maybe she meant the food which are similar to Pepenero.

(from the sofa where I sit)

(second floor, I adoooreee those sofaaas..)

About the food, I think it's so-so, except for the pizza, I give my both thumbs for it (we ordered the smallest one, you should order the biggest, I think it'll be more satisfying, hehee). My other cousin complained about the food portion, for him it's too small (compares to the price). I ordered pasta fettucinni with tomato sauce and a bit shrimp. For me, the pasta was too sweet (but the plate ended up clean, anyway) and I didn't have any problem with the portion, really. But there's one thing I like about the food, aside its pizza, that is its mushroom sauce for steak. It tasted groovy and a bit unique (but the steak was so-so -according to my cousin who ordered it).

(the food we ate)

(so far Ice Cappucinno is still the best)

Oh, there's a winery as well for those who drinks wine. Cocktails and beer are also on its menu list. So that explains a bit about how in foursquare people tag this place as a beer garden.

Actually, there're quite so many dishes this place is offering. Maybe it's more wise if you asked the waiter which food is their specialty. Buon Appetito ;)

The so called Perfect Ten

Yesterday was so important for many many people, I guess. So many wedding ceremony were held, and I heard some babies who were born at that date, their moms were released from any delivering charge. Moreover, Pasar Seni ITB, the once-in-a-decade event, was also held in Bandung. So you can imagine how perfect the traffic can be on that day.

Speaking of which, the only thing popped up in my mind as I heard 10-10-10 was the effing irritating terrible traffic. Some wedding had to extend building rental hours (and else), due to most of guests were trapped in the bad traffic. That relates to: another cost. Not to mention the Sun was too bright at that day. Some ppl in my twitter timeline even assumed that on that day, too many pawang hujan hired to cover wedding venues from the rain. Well, I agree with that thought.

But, we have to take hikmah on everything, do we? I supposed, one lesson learned. Don't EVER get married at tanggal cantik. Just like the wise old man said, "every day is a good day", isn't it? Whatever. Don't mind it.

Java Rocking Land 2010

Woohooo!!! It was such a great great event! Chris Caramba is so freakin hot! ;p Ollie and Arkarna's performance was hypnotizing (I didn't even know most of the songs they played, but still enjoyed every second of it, most likely because of Ollie's hyperactive movement, I guess, and love it!). Leave alone the Stereophonics' kicking performance and of course, that effortlessly-looking-utterly-handsome Kelly Jones.

Did I mention he's hot?

Almost cried as they played Belle of the Boulevard.
Don't Wait as an opening songs and closed by Hands Down. Just perfecto :)

Do you see what's on Ollie's left hand? It's an iPhone, he kept recording the crowd while singing and movin along the music . Sorry for the blurry pic, he kept moving, so it's hard to steal a good moment.

Okay, since I got so extremely exhausted jumping around through Arkarna's songs, I didn't get the chance to see the gorgeous Kelly Jones from Stereophonics close enough. And didn't also get the chance to see him perform my favorite songs, Have A Nice Day, Innocent, and Dakota (thanks to mom's text message and my sore legs). Well, at least I could hear Maybe Tomorrow, live. :)

Great night, perfect weather ( a bit rainy in the beginning but then stopped before DC performed), great companion (my boyfriend and my bestfriend), and fantastic performances from Dashboard Confessional, Arkarna, and Stereophonics. It was all worth the waiting, worth the sore legs, worth dwelling with mud, worth every penny, I guess. One word, Awesome!!!

P.S. Thanks to my nemo, who's taking most of the pics. :)

Another (going to be fab) Saturday

I'm changing my background once again. That describes how easy I get bored to something (oh, hopefully this is irrelevant with my love life ;p). Speaking of which, my nemo and I are coming to JavaRockingLand tonight, anybody coming too? Well, I've to tell you that I, hmm, asked my nemo to accompany me to the show. Okay, okay, I lied, I forced him, he didn't wanna come at first, since he doesn't like the performing artists, maybe he never been listened to any of their songs, but he ended up, patiently, saying yes to my wish. Hohoo.. Love him even more for that.

It's almost 1 pm and I haven't taken a bath :P (so don't even mention about getting ready for tonight's event). Oh, btw, I'm gonna wear striped t-shirt and a jacket plus a pair of jeans and sneakers. Hope I didn't do saltum. And another little wishy wish from me, please..please.. don't let those water falling from the sky please, God. Oh, well, at least give me a good health, so no matter how exhausted I could be, and how bad the weather would be, I won't get sick. AMIN.

Alright. Until tomorrow. Will post some great pictures from the show. I hope I could get a great spot tonight.

Heartbreaking News

(Got this pic from here)

I saw something that shocking me a bit, yesterday. A local news said that apparently, many "escalator caused" accidents happened nowadays. The saddest truth is that most of the victims are children. Some of them had permanent wounds, and some must lose their fingers, or even lost their life. What a heartbreaking fact.

In the news, most of parents blamed building management for the accident. Well, indeed there's an indication of building management's negligence, only not in every case. I feel deeply sorry for those little victims and their parents. But, IMHO, if you're looking who's to blame, then the right answer is simply their parents. I mean, how did those children play around or on the escalator without supervision? Parents shouldn't let their children playing around without supervision, in particular at public areas like malls. I've seen lots of children running through the escalator up and down at malls. Their parents? Dunno. I didn't see them around.

A child is an entrusted gift from God. They aren't ours, yet we're obligated to take care of them until they grow up. So parents, please take a good care of your precious gift, your children. May this regretful accident be a learned lesson to us.
