After finishing some cleaning, I went to Amsterdam with Nina. Bought a nice boots!!!! hehehe i can't control myself on shoes. man!!!!

At the last minute I decided to buy bus to Mannheim, the closest city to Heidelberg. I'll arrange the rest later.

Independence day

Indonesia Raya....merdeka..merdeka...hiduplah indonesia rayaaaaaaaa *imoet is singing*

This morning i saw those students just finished following the flag ceremony. My mind brought me back to my high school time. When every monday the flag ceremony was held. Kind of miss it though, hahaha...

It was my high school dream to be one of the PASKIBRA team -it is the team of the people whose task to raise the flag. Only a dream since they have this MINIMUM HEIGHT!! well, being cute means being minimalis *ting ting*. So everytime my class got its turn to hold the ceremony, I won't get any chance to troop in front of all the participants, raising the flag *hiks*. Had to be satisfied of being "UUD READER"

It's been 7 years now since I graduated from high school, and last time I joined flag ceremony was when I was in first year in uni -6 years ago. Just wondering now.....what do people about my age think about this independence day??
I can hardly remember the UUD now, can't even remember how many points it has!!! oh my god...I doubt my friends could remember it either. Back to our school time, this UUD was really an important matter to be remembered for PMP or PPKN subject. But now...when all of us got a job and earning our life, what is it for??

Yesterday Hiro asked about some Indonesian grammar.....I can't even explain him. Is this the sign that I'm losing my identity now???

Oh! I still can sing Indonesia Raya anyway (^_-)

Indonesia Rayaaa.....merdekaaaaa....merdekaaaaaaa

-Imoet is singing: merdekaaaa merdekaaaa-

back to surabaya


After 3 disaster days in Jakarta. I don't even know how to start writing about it. Sucks Sucks Sucks!!!!!!
Anyway, at last I sent email to my boss in Holland. She has to know what is going on in Surabaya. I'm sorry for my senior, since in that email I was kind of discrediting him....but this is the last thing I could do.

If we are all are matured enough...we should be able to separate friendship with business stuffs.
Maybe I wrote that letter in emotion, but I want everything to be cleared up. I don't like to grumble behind. It's not Shierly at all! was really an emotional letter....But as what Hiro said, it was sent already...just face it!

I know this one person. She is really a religious one. She goes to church EVERY morning, she prays to God to whatever she does, and she SAID that whatever in her life is God's will.
The thing is, she announces it to everybody. She is one of the most self-centered creature in the world I know that She stressed every thing on herself. She thinks that whatever other people doing is just to hurt her; that all people surrounding her are making tricky plans to ruin her life. but then I discover that the main problem she is worrying about, she is thinking about, she is fighting to, is about MONEY.
I am really confused. She said that her heart is as pure as cotton. But she is the only person I know whose negative thinking all the times towards other people.
She said she wants her daughter to be happy with the guy she loved, but she kept grumbling that the guy did something mistic to make the daughter fell in love. That the main reason is to ruin her family. HUH. It's because she thinks that there's RICHER guy likes the daughter.
She said that all she does is to help her sister and brother and nieces and nephews......Indeed she always mentions every single help she did to EVERY people she meets, even on the street.
She said that GOD helps her all the time, that the son could get into one best university in town. BUT she thanks GOD that the other people she knows could not pass the exam to that uni!!
She said that all her brothers and sisters were jealous to her that want to ruin her life. In fact she looks down on every family member, since she thinks that she is the most successful one in the family.
Is this what would happen of being TOO religious? She kept mentioning about GOD GOD GOD in every sentences she said......but her way of devoting herself sadly keeps me away from God!!!
I am tired listening to her. Same stories most of the time. Repeated again and again......ALL CRAPS IN THE NAME OF GOD
Oh God....who actually is the crap? ME of thinking this way, or HER of thinking that way?
Imoet is trying hard to get rid of mosquitos now

Ending....don't come!!!!

People come and go in your life. They might be gone from your routine, but don't let them go from your heart......
Every 5:00 pm in my morning office, one by one says good bye to each other with smile (at last the day ends!), and wave (c u tomorrow, tot morgen, tot volgende week!). Bangs the door, then dissapears!
Been that way, get used to that already. Routine, routine, routine......
But what if it comes to the end??? heartbreaks, teardrops, lost...
This evening, as usual vitria said good bye, it was time for her to go home already. But this time it was really different. Smiling widely, she said: "see u guys...ooh...see u in next two weeks....OH!!! won't we meet anymore?"
I was thrown into reality. Oh...this month is gonna be the last month of all of us working together. Nina is going to go to Jakarta already on the 22 of August, so she won't meet vitria anymore in the office. Everybody got stucked. Time goes so quickly!!! anyhow, vitria is going to join us for her last presentation in Malang next two weeks...would really be our last time working together...(_ _o) sad.....
As she left, I looked at Nina at the eyes....
Mia has been gone, Vitria will be soon, and then is Nina queing behind??
It felt like yesterday when I met her for the first time at the Schipol airport. We are now almost reach the end. I felt great lost in my heart, can't help not to cried. We both did......what would we do in October? when every body probably would say goodbye to each other for real??
Could i really bear it, when the time comes?
Life must go on.....but left my heart tons of heavy feelings.

Feeling blue

-Another busy day-
Must face a lot of administrative works today, but apparently I enjoyed doing it more than facing those counselor teachers from high schools. The phone also didn't stop ringing, and guests was coming one by one. Three weeks to go, those parents are now panic and tend to ask a lot of questions, even some are silly. But I can understand their feeling. Son or daughter is going to go far far away from their hands....

-Angry again-
Angry again because of that "LATER" word. Tired of it. I was so emotional this afternoon, almost did silly thing. I want to repair our relationship, it's not healthy to work this way, but just have no idea how to change our both personality. I am the emotional one with sharp tongue, while the other one is the sensitife type but ignorance. Could we still form a good teamwork even if I continue working in this company??????

-Nyo is coming-
At last today Nyo will arrive back in Surabaya after several days got stucked in Jakarta. Poor her, she had her luggage left behind at China. But anyway, welcome back to Surabaya and all the intricks hahaha.

- Thursday wish -
I want to have a massage, I want to be able to give my boss a decision, I want to have stronger body -no tired, no masuk angin, I want to meet hiro, I want to go home and sleep while I still want to chat with hiro, I want to kiss my sister, I want to meet my mom, I want to hug my dad, I want to talk with my brother.........mmmmmmmmm I think I got HOMESICK (_ _o)

Where would be the best place if your body is not in its best condition?
My mom would prepare me good healthy food -not this masakan padang I just bought and eat-
My dad will sleep beside me and make sure that I'm fine -including making sure that I take those bitter medicine!
My brother will come with his fresh jokes to make me laugh, and end it with his strong massage.
My sister will cheer me up with comics or her daily hospital stories.........

I miss my mom's cook, my dad's warm hug, my brother's massage and my sister's jokes. Haaaaaaaa...but Here I am all alone in this city earning life (_ _o)

And I want my hiro too..........

Kaze (_ _o)

Tiring and busy day. I had to wake up very early because I had to go to the office at 7:00. Hardly could open my eyes since I feel like catching cold since yesterday. Anyway, I had to dress nicely today for going to the Dutch Consulate, so I thought a light make up would make me look better.

What a surprise we (Nina and I) got at the Dutch Embassy. We had to meet the last person we want to meet in the earth, and neither does that person. But we are in Indonesia, so being nice and polite all the time is a MUST. I felt like putting a smiling mask in front of that person, while grumbling with Nina behind. I don't like being such kind of person!! It's just a norm that I have to respect, eventhough my heart was screaming disgustingly.

In spite of that, it's a nice busy day I had today. Got good news about additional mvv approval from Holland, happy with that. It was the first beautiful thing happened today that I hugged Nina to express my feeling hahaha.

Now sitting on in front my computer at my night office, between my responsibility of editing some works -which are so damn boring-, I felt that my body is worse. Wanna go home soon, but I still have more than 1 hour to go. Writing this blog is such a nice break!!!

Thanks to Pei for the medicine. Hope it would help!! \(^o^)/

ooh!! I'm so happy. Hiro read my previous posting in Japanese and made some grammatical correction. I thought I would make a lot of mistakes, since truthfully this was my first time writing a composition in Japanese. But Hiro said, it was nice for a beginner. YAY!! motivate me to write more. He's going to give me topic then hahaha (writing homework, huh?).

私 の しゅみ - Japanese corner

私 の しゅみ は ほん を よむ こと と えいが を みる こと です。ほん を よむ こと は いちばん すき です。まい にち、ねる まえに ほん を よみます。とき どき、えいが を みます。

わたし は レミー シラド の ほん が とても すき です。ぜんぶ よみたい です。 Vebby に レミー シラド の ほん を かりました。

アメリカ ドラマ も すき です。ひろ も アメリカ ドラマ が すき です。ひろ と friends の はなす こと が できます。ひろ は friends で えいご を ならいます。 おもしろい です。

Massage me, please....*wink*

Quite a busy day!!
What else than this mvv stuffs of the students? the departure date is coming!!
As happens every year, still there are some students haven't got their mvv approved. Leaving me worries and bad dreams. Oh help help....(ouw..feel shy since I don't pray lately).

Full of meeting and planning, and only God knows whether it would work as planned or not.

I think I'll catch cold! (AGAIN?!?!). Feel not good today, and miss my Hiro now. He's still busy so I haven't got any "yahoo hugs" from him.

Want to be massaged badly................

AWW!!!!!!! I forgot that I have to make some sentences in Japanese!!!!!!!! dammit...I have to be more discipline for this. TOMORROW....Promise deeeeh (^_^)v
(I didn't say "later" but "tomorrow" hehe)

Another homework for me beside this "job decision" thing.

-Imoet is wishing that there's Phoebe here to massage her-

Thinking monday

I woke up in a very good mood this morning. Hope to have a nice working day so that I probably could close it with smiling again. I wore simple outfit for working but put on little make up to make me looked more fresh. As usual Ayik dropped me and then borrowed my bike. There I was...starting again my working life.

But my morning smile was gone as I saw my desk. All my CDs were spread all over it, really a mess. Somebody was looking for a CD without putting all of them back to their place. Got irritating, but I didn't want to ruin my day, so I just let it that way and doing my morning tasks.

-I do hate the habit of just saying "LATER"-
A lot of people said that this is typical character of Indonesian. Several times I had arguments that not all Indonesian have that tendencies, that people just tend to give Indonesian negative prejudice, that bla bla bla...but gosh! now I have this real example of it. I have to admit what those foreigners think, and deal with this irritating fact.

And today I had to waste my energy again quarelling with that person, because of that habit "later, later, later". He just like to say it, without really intends to do the tasks. Fed up now...I feel like it would be really difficult to be in a same team work with this person *sigh*.

-How to separate friend and business?!-
*sigh sigh*
I wish I could.........................................

tit tit...tit tit....(that's my phone's sound!!)
"Hi Shierly, till when will u stay?. groet, H"
I freezed reading that. ouw....not ready yet with an answer.
This job gives me more salary, but not mentally healthy for me, in addition, I lost my motivation and interest.
Again I have to end up with two difficult or peace.
I need money, not being hypocrate about it. My brother and sister's education depend on me; meanwhile me myself also want to enjoy my life by spending every rupiah I earn.
But I also need a peace. I can't find it in my present job now. or......I just don't feel satisfied with what I have now???
Hiro was right...I have to think how to solve this. This is my life, and I am the only one who can make it meaningful. In the future probably more problems and choices will pop up, have to be ready and get used to it.
*my forehead is full of wrinkled now -sign of thinking-*

- Nice Ending -
What would be the best thing in my day except that I could have some time to chat with Hiro?
Everyday we chat, and everyday I feel so happy. All the bad feeling caused by any problems at work will dissapear. This is what people call "love" hahaha *shy*

Pei looked so sick today, but still she joined me and Valens having ice cream at swensens.

-Imoet is going to sleep with full stomach tonight-

Relaxing sunday

- New Spirit to Learn Japanese-
I had my Japanese lesson this morning. I could start to catch up, but still my weakness is because I don't use this language in my daily life. I asked Hiro several times ago to talk in Japanese with me so that I could have some practice, but he said that he wants to practice his English. A Kotowaza: Language can be learnt best from the lips of the lover, won't work for me (T_T).
So promised to myself, that start from tomorrow: to make a paragraph of minimally 5 sentences in Japanese!!! Come on Shierly...GANBATTE NE!!!

-Shopping with terrible stomache-
Just before I went to TP with Pei, Hendry n 'Lun, I had lunch prepared by our maid. A damn hot salty vegetable. We like it very much, but our appraisal to the maid made her even more crazy to make "special HOT" meal. Oishii in my mouth, but killing my stomach.
Then in TP, I felt the risk of taking this super hot stuff. I shopped some stuffs, but I really couldn't enjoy it. After I got all my needs bought, Pei suggested us to have some cold drinks to cooler the intestines. Feel a bit guilty to 'Lun...he couldn't get what he wants since we're running out of time too.
Anyway I was happy....I got this nice white shoes and some discounted bras (^_^)v

Got a gift from Valens!!! a white lady bag......happy

-Parijs van Java-
I spent my evening to finish reading this book. I couldn't stop it until I felt my stomach cried for some food. Ayik accompanied me for Soto Banjar...yummy...and then I got drown again by Remy Sylado's words. It brought me to the time when the Dutch was still colonializing our country, and put my heart at Gerry's feeling. Really a great book.
So far I finished reading 2 of Remy Sylado's novels: Kembang Jepun and Parijs van Java. Last year Nyo and I gave pei a complete series of this writer's pieces. Gonna borrow the other titles soon!!!!! *wink to Pei*

-Imoet closed her day with happy feeling, and imagining big kiss for her far far away sweetheart-

Sunday, August 01, 2004


I woke up with a big smile this morning. My alarm only needed to ring once to throw me to the real world. But I was happy, I didn't throw away my phone as usual hahaha...

I went to the office first, preparing some stuffs to be brought by my collagues for the listening test. Again "HE" almost ruined everything. Luckily by Nina's rough words, the test could be done successfully. Thanks to Nina!! *muaaach*

-Yosakoi Festival-
I came a bit late, so Kondo sensei was a bit irritating at
We went to PEMKOT together for the preparation at around 12 o'clock. But had to wait until 3:30!!!!!!!!! I almost lost my motivation to dance. I really hate to wait. I didn't bring my mobile phone with me, so I lost contact with my sad. I asked Pei to come at 2 o' perhaps she left already huks huks huks. I got really bored and sleepy until then I heard a familiar voice: IMUUTTT....!!!!

YAY YAY YAY!!! Vitria could get inside the PEMKOT area!!!! sooooo happy. I jumped here and there haha. I got back my spirit to dance hahaha. She came with Denny, her "bestfriend" from Makassar. Those two people were like softdrinks in the middle of Sahara desert for me.

At first I had to sit alone boring, but as Vitria came, I could show her the cute cute guys there hahahahaha. One thing that couldn't be shared with my friends from this Yosakoi team, we're fighting for the same target in this case *shy*.

I danced 15 times non-stop. Well, we didn't win the festival, but at least i got one of the medal given by Kochi govrnment to best 10 dancers in a group heheehe. I didn't even care that our team was lost. What a mean self-centered Shierly....!!!!! I wished I won't be as self-centered as one of my friend is hehehe (Imoet is knocking her desk three times).

-Perfect Dinner-
My tiring day was closed by this perfect dinner with Vitria, Denny, Pei, Hendry, Nina and Adnan. We went to IKI, got a room for 7, and spent almost the whole dinner exchanging stories. Denny is a nice companion too.....ehm ehm for Vitria hehe.

Imoet is closing her day with this wide smug smile
