The World Is Awesome :D

In Amazing!, Heartwarming, Me Likey, Musically Me, Video Post on September 14, 2008 at 5:08 pm

Yes, it does make me want to break into this song.

And let’s sing the song!

I love the mountains
I love the clear blue skies
I love big bridges
I love when great whites fly.

I love the whole world
and all its sights and sounds

boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da

I love the ocean
I love the dirty things
I love to go fast
I love egyptian kings

I love the whole world
and all its craziness

boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da

I love tornados
I love arachanid
I love hot magma
I love the giant squids

I love the whole world
it’s such a brilliant place.

boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da
boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da, boom dee ya da

😀  I won’t mind having this song playing over and over in my head all day 😀


I Heart Bandung

In Heartwarming on March 19, 2008 at 7:56 pm

I’m writing this from the posh Hyatt Regency Bandung hotel room where the broadband connection costs an stupid ridiculous $15 per-24 hour.  Or was it $50?  Whatever.

When I was still a student at ITB, everytime I pass this hotel, I used to say to my friends: “Hey, one day I’m gonna come back here and stay THERE. I’m done with crappy kos-kosan and stuff.”

And now I’m here. Although on a business trip, it’s still the same. I’m here. I thought it was gonna feel different, but it’s really not. Bandung still looks and feels the same as twelve years ago when I first set foot in this charming town. Yesterday I went to Bandung Indah Plaza, and although things changed there, I can still see me and my best friends shopping for groceries at Yogya Supermarket -which to my amazement has not lost its customers to the supposedly bigger and better Hypermart downstairs-.

Quote of The Day

In Heartwarming on February 25, 2008 at 11:25 am

I know this isn’t a new quote, but this is indeed suitable for me today.

“Work like you don’t need the money, love like you’ve never been hurt
and dance like you do when nobody’s watching.”

Yeah, sometimes you can just tell when somebody needs lifting up.  And badly.

Pillow Talk

In Heartwarming on January 25, 2008 at 11:49 pm

“So, how many hearts have you stolen?”
“A lot, I think.”
“But you stole mine, and I insist you keep it.”

And there goes the butterflies again 🙂

Mi Familia

In Heartwarming, Randomness on January 12, 2008 at 11:35 pm

Right. I just came back from a full-blown family gathering at my cousin’s place. Random thoughts weirdnesses as follows:

1. Weird how it seems like only yesterday that we used to sweat in the sweltering heat playing with anything available to play with (read: bicycles, the neighbor’s cats, an uncle’s car) and mocking the boring adults who sit nicely and talk with obnoxious laughters thrown sporadically and yelling “CAREFUL!” at us, while today we became those boring adults who sit nicely and talk with obnoxious laughters thrown sporadically while neurotically yelling “CAREFUL!” to the kids sweating in the sweltering heat playing with anything available to play with and mocking US.

Thank You God, for the neverending blessings all throughout my 29 years of living.
Thank You for the health of both my parents.
Thank You for giving me company and love through my dearest man.
Thank You for the caring best friends, who always stand by me.
Thank You for sending new wonderful friends with big hearts.
Thank You for allowing me to work with high-quality colleagues.
Thank You for the understanding and supporting bosses.
Thank You for everything, God.

There are hopes and dreams that I’ve yet to reach,

But I am sure You hear each and every prayer of mine.

Thank You once again, God, for the colorful 29 years.

I am indeed the luckiest girl in the world 😀

Ramadhan Perks

The fasting month brings joy to the muslim, that we know.

What we never really realize is… the Holy month also boosts up everyone’s social life.  Including mine, the non-muslim.  Every year.  And that makes me really happy!

Imagine this:

In regular days, I won’t be out of the office until about 8 p.m.  There’s almost always something to do.  When there’s not much to do, I’d be browsing the internet for nothing… just for the sake of waiting for the traffic to subside.   I’d be turning down dinner invitations from friends, because I’d rather have dinner at home with my parents and therefore friends can be met on weekends.  My snuggly bed is the one thing I can’t seem to stop thinking about, and when I do get home, I’d be tired and would just lazily lay around and watch TV until I fall asleep.  Not much of a social life there.

I (Heart) My Old Friends

In Heartwarming, Me Likey on July 18, 2007 at 12:08 am

My phone rang yesterday, just as I was finishing up shooting at the studio. It was my friend Barrie.

+ “Hi Und! Are you busy right now?”
– “Well I’m just about to wrap up the shoot for today. Wassup?”
+ “Oh go ahead then, this can wait.”
– “No no, it’s fine. We’re on a break anyway. Wassup?”
+ “I just wanna invite you to a movie premiere tomorrow. That is, if you have the time”
– “A movie premiere? You’re writing the script?”
+ “Not this one, but this is like the thing that I’ve been working on for the past few months”
– “When is the premiere again?”
+ “Tomorrow. I invited Mr. J too and he said he’d come. So if you’re free maybe the three of us can meet up!”
– “Cool! So you’re sending the invites?”
+ “Just come, I’ll have the tickets ready. It’s not like any other premieres. You actually get seat numbers. So come, okay? It’s at 8 p.m. Grande MPX”
– “I’ll have to reconfirm tomorrow at about noon. Can I call you then?”
+ “Of course. See ya!”

That short conversation turned to be one of the greatest night I’ve had in such a LONG time. Well it might be just ‘regular’ for some, but to me it was great.

A Day To Be Thankful

In Heartwarming, Me Likey on July 4, 2007 at 11:21 pm

I went to Ancol to shoot the holiday episode for my show today.  Very tiring, as I expected.

What I did NOT expect was the streams of feelings rushing inside me.  Confused?  Read on.

The day started at 7.30 a.m when I arrived at Yayasan Sayap Ibu, a modest orphanage tucked within South Jakarta’s somewhat ‘elite’ residential area, Barito.  This orphanage had exsited way back from the fifties, and located just beside the famous Hero Barito Supermarket.  I’ve always been curious on what orphanages are like from the inside, yet haven’t got the guts to enter one.  I’m a very sensitive person whenever it comes to orphans and senior citizens without families, heck I used to just cry seeing beggars when I was small and get laughed at for doing so quite a few times.  That is why, I guess, I grew up somewhat blocking my eyes and ears from these phenomenons and directed myself to be ignorant because I believed that what I don’t know won’t hurt me (anymore).

Now, it was my idea to take the orphans to a day of fun for the show and so I had to be responsible.  Tell you the truth, I couldn’t really sleep last night, afraid that I might break down and cry seeing the poor little kids running around having fun.  So I consciously conditioned myself with this mantra:

Sherman Pore, A Forgotten Gem

In Heartwarming, Mushy :), My American Idol Addiction, TV Talk, Video Post on May 26, 2007 at 1:12 am

It has always been my habit to look back on everything that had passed whenever a TV show ends its season. This time, I looked back on the recently ended American Idol and I realized that I haven’t said anything about a man named Sherman Pore. Been too busy bitching about the contestants and praising Melinda Doolittle too much, I forgot about the real winner of the show.
