May was the beginning of auditors’ low season,, I kicked the holiday by spending over 3 nights (May 28-31) in Ujung Kulon! A place that never crossed my mind until 2 weeks before the departure. This placed was enormously beautifulllllllll!! which I couldn’t describe by words, so just look at these pictures 😉

Meeting point @ Tony Jack Sarinah. They are my high school friends, so glad we could be reunited on an event 😉

First stop was fascinating! an island consist of sands, bright sun and blue water, made me WOW!

Morning @Handeulum island.. gorgeous colours…

Tanjung layar. It took a lot of sweat and countless slips to get here but it’s so much worthy to see these view 😀

Peucang island has a very pretty beach and coral nearby. LOVE it!

The Hellow mates!! this trip won’t be the same without u all folks! We should have a trip together again someday! cheers!!

I absolutely will remember all the beauty, the singing on the boat, the laughter at the rain, the starve at the jungle,,, aihhhhh,, what a memorable journey! Thanks a lot to Hellowmates and Om Paul for the pictures 😉

Kiddos’

It’s true that become older means that we should be carrying more responsibilities.  But it doesn’t meant we can’t play like a kid and just having a GOODDD time. There’s always a kid spirit in US! Don’t deny it, just know when is the right time to be KID ;p

~Bandung, April 24-25 2010~

Frustration at work? Did you sometimes feel bored to death on weekend? All this time spending your weekend at the mall? Need another activities or getaway? Maybe its time to join a new community around us! After campus life, I didn’t join any communities because I was worried that I haven’t time to do that. But lately this work life is killing me softly, raped my social life and prisoning me with responsibility. Now that low season is just at the corner, I will find getaway ;D

This weekend, My friend Gone, suggest me to go to ‘KumKum’ an unprofitable event which gathers diverse communities held in Bank Mandiri Museum, Kota. At the exhibition I met astronomic gank to ‘go green’ geeks. It was fun! Some are famous such Bike to Work and Jelajah Budaya. The one that catch my attention from the first time is ‘Wiken tanpa ke Mall‘. I surely need to join this community! I am thousands bored if every weekend Mall is my only destination, booo! Now, I have some alternative, heehee.. ;p I also join Marine buddies which affiliated with WWF, am trying to save Penyu! And I’m intended to join one of Jelajah Budaya events, they are so kewll! Learning culture by observation and workthrough!

I can’t wait till, I actual do somethin and contribute! Please do visit http:\\kumkum.dagdigdug.com to get information for their next event and all the communities which was joining.

This is a great movie those of you who’s still looking for passion in life. Very inspiring and touching! I do will recommend this film for my future children. ;D

Review by Blitz :

Two friends embark on a quest for a lost buddy. On this journey they encounter a long forgotten bet, a wedding they must crash and a funeral that goes impossibly out of control. As they make their way through the perilous landscape, another journey begins: their inner journey through memory lane and the story of their friend – the irrepressible free-thinker Rancho (Aamir Khan) – who in his unique way, touches and changes their lives.

Moral of this films as far as I can catch. “Don’t chase success because it will end up meaningless. Otherwise, do whatever you like and success will follow on your path”

AWAS PENIPUAN!!!!

Kurang dari 1 bulan hampir aja mengalami penipuan 2 kali!! Yang pertama, nyokap ditele, ktnya dapet undian berhadiah dari Telkom-Undian Rumah Runtuh, dapet Honda Mio ktnya. Itu orang di tele bisa banget kyknya meyakinkan nyokap gw. Modusnya, pertama ada yang menelpon buat kasih tauw kalo menang, trus disuruh menghubungi seseorang yang katanya berwenang. Nyokap disuru nyediain fotokopi ktp, KK, materai dan yang paling aneh adalah pulsa simpati @100rb sebanyak 4 buah!!! dan katanya motor akan dikirim sore itu juga padahal baru ditele jam 2 siang??! Untungnya ada gw sm kakak gw di rumah buat menyadarkan si nyokap kalo itu penipuan, bahkan gw sampe harus menele informasinya telkom buat ngeyakinin nyokap??! gw rasa ada unsur hipnotisnya jg dehh..

Analisa gw mungkin gag si telkomnya mensyaratkan beli voucher simpati?? mereka perusahaan terpisah bukann??!! trus baru tele jam 2, janji jam 4 mau dianter?? biasanya kalo menang undian kan ada jangka waktu pengambilan hadiahnya! masalah serah terima, dimana2 kalo menang undian, serah terima dilakukan di kantor si sponsor dong, masa di rumah??! mana realibility-nya?! trus pake acara meng-oper telepon lagi?!buat apa?? engga jelas substansinya apaan! yang bikin gw puas, orang itu gw telpon balik dan gw maki2!! dan dia iya2 aja denger makian gw,, huahahahah.. GEBLEKK..

Yang Kedua. Di suatu sabtu siang, gw dapet tele yang nawarin kartu diskon untuk penerbangan kecuali airasia, seluruh hotel di Indonesia dan beberapa di asia tenggara, bisa dipindahtangankan, berlaku 5 tahun tanpa iuran tahunan, bekerja sama dengan perhimpunan pengusaha perhotelan seindonesia, iuran di awal cuma 299rb, hanya khusus promo alumni UI, didukung sm dept. pariwisata, blaa,blaa,blaa.. kebetulan waktu itu gw lagi nyetir dan agag2 gag fokus sm yang diomongin, jadilah gw bilang minta dikirimin email promosinya atau web-nya jadi lebih enak cari tahunya dan minta dia tele lagi 2 hari lagi.. awalnya si mba-nya maksa banget minta keputusannya secepatnya, dan serius, gw sangat tertarikkk! tapi akhirnya dia nyerah mau kirim alamat website-nya dan telpon 2 hari lagi..

setelah gw cek website-nya kok anehh,, emang web ttg kartu diskon gt,, tapi kerja samanya dgn indosat  dan merchant di bandung,, buat travel ada tapi gag bisa ke trace apa aja,, dan buat penerbangan juga engga ada.. keanehan pertama! karena gw pikir ini travel pasti cukup gede karena dia kerja sama dng dept pariwisata, seluruh perhotelan di Indonesia dan semua penerbangan kec airasia,, pastinya ada sedikit info ttg travel itu dong di google ato yellow pages.co.id, dannn enggaa ada ajaaaa lohhhhhhh,, keanehan kedua! trus smsnya waktu ini ngasih alamat juga, logikanya dengan banyaknya embel2 mustinya bisa dicari dong nama gedungnya,, engga ada juga! keanehan ketiga!! pas dicari alamatnya ke google map, ternyata tempatnya di kalibata pojok2 yang bisa dipastikan bukan kawasan bisnis!! keanehan keempat!! yang membuat gw tambah yakin adalah di sms itu mbaknya nulis travel dengan ‘TREVEL’ huahahahahaha!!

Fiuhhhhh,, hampir aja ketipu 2 kali,, emang si kalo diliat nilainya mungkin engga seberapa,, tapi kan kesel juga kalo ketipu! belom lagi kalo dia udah tauw situasi rumah kita karena pernah dateng???! walah-walahh.. Jadi modus penipuan lewat telepon itu bisa disimpulkan sbb :

1. MAKSA! maunya cepet2 di-DEAL-kan,, tanpa memberikan kita banyak waktu buat berpikir jernih.. gw rasa ini part of hipnotis juga dehhh,,

2. TIDAK LOGIS!  menang undian koq malah suruh kasi sesuatu lagi? katanya terkenal tapi koq engga bisa di googling?? helowwww,, skr semuanya bisa digoogling kali seharusnya! dan mana mungkin keanggotaan 5 tahun hanya 300rb dengan besarnya diskon yang dikasi?? there’s no such a free lunch!!

satu pesan gw, setiap kali ada telepon engga dikenal yang berpromosi atau bilang kalo menang undian, JANGAN GEGABAH, THINK CLEARLY dan selalu bersikap SKEPTIS!!! be Smart and think Conservatively,,

 

Oktoberfest


Munich’s first ever ‘Oktoberfest’ was held in 1810 to celebrate a royal wedding with horse races and various culinary delights. The culinary delights, primarily the beer, were much more popular than the wedding ceremony and horse races.
Since then, the munich beer festival has been repeated on an almost annual basis. Only major catastrophes like war or the outbreak of epidemics can stop Munich’s inhabitants from gathering at the
green expanse called ‘Wies’n’, the festival’s location.
Even though it is called the ‘Oktoberfest’, the festival actually takes place in September, as the Bavarian autumn can be tricky and throw a surprise with early cold and snow.

Today, the ‘Oktoberfest’ is the largest festival worldwide attracting a multitude of visitors. Apart from beer tents the festival offers amusements as diverse as roller coasters, circus appearances, festival parades and live brass bands.
The
ceremonial opening happens at noon. The mayor arrives in a festive coach followed by a decorated horse-drawn brewer’s cart. Guests, staff and the numerous brass bands are all wearing traditional costumes (lederhosen and dirndls) for the occasion. At the end of the parade the major taps the first keg of beer and shouts, “o’zapft is!” (The keg is tapped).

It takes good nerves and a solid stomach to survive the festival’s 16 days of intensive partying and drinking.
However, the festival is a huge success: Apart from attracting a multitude of visitors, the festivals brand name ‘Oktoberfest’ has been exported all over the world.
Of course, it is always best to get to know the real thing.

HAPPY OKTOBER EVERYONE!! CHEERS!!

Last night, I just saw a musical theater performance. This was the first in my life and I LOVE it!!! It was a such GREAT and BIG production! This event was organized by my high school friends, Pradilah Galuh as Production, Alicia Kasih as Choreographer, and my junior Margaretha Frida (Idot) as Music Director.

This show was adapted from Dream Girls movie which was also adapted from a real Broadway script by Tom Eyen. The story was about several people chasing their dream through music industry. So the casts were singers, managers, song writer, musicians  and dancers. yeahh, just like Dream Girls movie starred by Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson.. The casts not only sang and danced but also talked in English [AMAZED]!! I think the singing and dancing is WUNDERBAR but they need to work out more on the acting. Anyway, to produce this kind of big production is not easy, selecting cast, raising funds, publication, hundreds of reherseals.. so BIG SALUTE for this show!!

dream girls

One thing that tickled me and my friends after the show, is about chasing OUR DREAMS. This Jakarta Broadway Team was founded by Idot-The Music Director who is our -3 years below- Junior! And read the biography Ali-The Choreographer, that she has become a professional dancer and choreographer!  Shame on us! By this 20 something age we still find it hard to chase our dreams, not even closed, or maybe not even started.. Anyway, the morale of the show’s success is that we are reminded again [once again] about chasing our dreams. Maybe not the dreams from the high school or even from elementary, just be realistic to start the dreams from the place we’re standing now. LET’s DREAM BIG!!
