Bye single... the time comes.....

I couldn't sleep for the whole week. My mind brought me back and forth, to all the things that have happened in my life. I'm in my 25 years old, and (inspired from my boss, Vera) will change my status from a "ms" to a "mrs". Oh this real? am I dreaming? everything just happened in a blink. Still can't believe this.

Am I satisfied already with my single life? with all the achievements, failures, lessons of life, and adventures. Also for all the stupidest and craziest things I've done. Am I satisfied already? Am I ready for the new life almost every girl dreamt of with the love one? Could I be a good wife? Could this sloppy girl be a good mother later on?

With wide opened eyes in my dark room, all the things happened in my life flashed back like a film...
  • I can say I have a strange happy childhood, with strangely close relationship with my brother and sister.
  • I've experienced a spoilt life. With my parents trying to give me whatever I want.
  • Also experienced the hard one. Sometimes with no money at all left in my pocket.
  • But there I saw and learnt. How my parents worked hard day and night, struggling to provide their children the best they could.
  • I've given my parents my best achievements in school. The only thing I could do to pay them back. Their proud smiles motivated me most to keep the yearly gradelist on the top ranks.
  • I've experience studying at two universities with two different major.
  • I graduated cum laude from uni, with predicate of best active student. Brought my parents to come in front of Widya Mandala's 700 graduates. It was the gift for my expensive tuition fee.
  • I've experienced the active school and uni life. With lots of friends, and lots of activities.
  • I've experienced uni's busy and active organization life. There I developed myself and learnt about responsibility.
  • I've experienced the busy part-time workings.
  • I've experienced the adventurous last minute travels with Mariza. Thing I wouldn't consider to do again now hahaha
  • I've experienced a 4-year relationship with a nice but conventional guy, and how it was to be welcomed in his family.
  • I've experienced also a 1-month wild relationship with my junior in uni.
  • I've cheated guys and flirting and playing around with their hearts. Well, I promised not to do these anymore.
  • I've dedicated myself working for two companies days and nights.
  • I could help my parents supporting my brother and sister's education. Hope they could be good doctors in the future.
  • I've satisfied myself eating soto Banjar at a warung on Kedungdoro street.
  • In 3 years I've visited Holland for three times, German for twice, Paris, Belgium, Singapore twice, India, Malaysia also for three times and Japan twice. My great interest in travelling cleaned my savings and bonus.
  • I've nude-photographed by talented-Carla. Thanks, girl. Your art opened my eyes of how sexy I am hahahaha.
  • I've met lots of wonderful friends with whom I spent my colorful single life.
  • And I've met my soulmate. Been through ups and downs together, till now we decided to step further into a marriage.

And many many other lists couldn't be written here.
Oh...yes I'm satisfied. I've had passionate single life. Always following my heart, and never regret of what I've decided. Take them all as lessons in my life.
Some may say I'm crazy. I'm naughty. I'm stupid.
But I'm satisfied with my wild single life. With the life I've earned with my own hands.

So for now....bye bye single world......(^_^)v.

I'll open a new page of my new life.

Bit relieved

So little time so much to do....

It's me now. I have little time only left yet lots of things to be done before mid of next week. Only God knows whether I can manage all or not.

But today, I feel a bit relieved.
I managed to submit all the paperworks to the consulate.
I talked to my boss in Excellogix, and got days off for next week.
I got positive response from my boss in CDU.
I talked to my parents about my plan - hmmmm their reactions were unbelievable, yet make sense.
I talked with Hiro about other stuffs and he could understand (^_^).

Every day until next week is important. I wish I could still have a month or so, but other side of my heart is counting down. Can't wait for the time. also scared actually *nail biting*

I'm scared...

Don't know what am i supposed to think now. or feel. or plan.
I was stunned by the fact I saw last night. not sure whether it's really true or not though.
But still this opened my eyes the whole night thinking. What should I do. What will I face. What will be the explanation.

I don't want to say this as a mistake. This should be a thing I thank you. This is the thing I've been longing for. Though now it still confused me a lot. Am I really ready? ready for all the consequences? Well I have to. I chose this path already, and I have to go on.

But please help me to go through this. I have no power. I can only ask for help. And you're the only one who can help me.

Crab "eggs" or "shits"

Lately I love to eat crabs. Especially those served with the "eggs".
Reni, my colleague at CDU, introduced a nice "seafood warung". Not so expensive, and delicious. I love the sweet and sour crabs, with the "eggs".

Once I like to eat something, I will eat it again and again and again. And so this new crab-eating hobby. Since that first crab dinner with CDU colleague, I still could taste the crab in my mouth. Therefore when I went to Bali last weekend, I proposed one crab dinner to Hiro. Then when I got back to Surabaya, I had another crab dinner with Valens. That time, I enjoyed it so much because I got lots of eggs in the crab. slurpppp. that time I was bit irritated by Valens. He said that what I ate was not "crab eggs", but "crab shits". BAH!!!!!! The crab is too delicious for such a comment.

All the CDU's staffs were so crazy of crabs. That's why last Saturday, we decided to have crab as the menu during our office's dinner. We invited Carla and Vitria also to the dinner (they're both ex-CDUers), but UNFORTUNATELY Carla couldn't make it. Tina also finally couldn't come due to family's outing, so the "nice" CDU's saturday outing was attended by Arieftje, Reni, Vitria and me.

Arief then bought the carb and brought it to the office. We planned to have dinner first before karaoke. The crab was a bit cold already (_ _!), but still nice for me. So greedily, I ate 2 crabs. Both with lots of eggs inside. Oh....what a nice dinner!!

But then today I read Vitria's blog about the crab dinner. She said that:
1. The crab's eggs supposed to be orange. Not green-yellow like last Saturday
2. The crab's eggs have quite solid textures, not liquid.
3. The crab's eggs are located inside the crab's shell, not nearby the crab's anus.
That's why she lost her appetite, but preferred to silent so that others' wouldn't lose their appetite.

In other words.......according to her, what I ate were not crab's eggs, but crab's shit!!

Hueeeeee??????? How could you Vitria...?! Why didn't you tell me?? Huks huks huks....I ate crab's shits. Hmmmmm several times already!! So stupid.....just know Vei asked me "have you ever ate sushi with crab egg's?"
Yeah....I remember exactly now how crab eggs supposed to be.

HOEKKKKKK I ate crab's shits ~~~~>_<~~~~

Sorry, door!

Last night I couldn't enter my own bedroom. Got locked (>_<)

I tried to turn the key again and again, but got stucked. Nyo and Vei were helping, but the key really was stucked. Huks.....I couldn't enter my own room......

As we were so hungry, we decided to go out for a dinner first. I couldn't really enjoy the delicious soto ayam. My mind were in front of my bedroom's door. My friends knew this and started to blame me. It's my fault. It's because I always open and close my door harshly. Even Nyo said that she's surprised my door can last up to two years. Her prediction was not even for 1 year.

Vei: You know? no one in our boarding house produced that "BANG" sound while closing door.
Nyo: Everybody will know that imoet is at home from the "BANG" sound of her bedroom door.
Vei: Even in the middle of night, you often wake me up with your "BANG" sound when you go to toilet.
Vei: Ooooooo!!! Now I know why mbak Parti (our maid) always make noisy sound while cleaning your window every morning!!! Because her room is right under your's, and you always surprised her with your "BANG" sound. Maid's revenge...? hahaha
Nyo: should eat more now. You'll need it, because tonight you'll have to work with ur door.
Nyo: What you sow is what you reap (inspired by the bible)

Then I run straight to my room and tried to open the door again. But you know, I'm a very unpatient type. I said "sorry" to my door, but still the key got stucked. huks huks......
After sometime, when I felt so desperate, Vei's patient won the door's heart....xie xie Pei!!!!!

So....I just left my door unlocked this morning. I don't expect not being able to enter my room again tonight (^_-)

Again....sorry, door....

Hari ini capekkkkkkk banget.
Badanku gak enak, perutku sakit the whole day (>_<), kepala juga cekot-cekot, bikin emosi naik ke ubun-ubun.
Di kantor banyak problems, ribuuut terus, tegang terus. Bossku sampe telpon beberapa kali dari Belanda. Bikin tegang n sumpek. HP sampe low battery, got too many phone calls dan semuanya can be said made me mad!!! and I have my sore throat too.....maybe because I talked in raised tone almost the whole day?!
Why they have to look for me for every tiny problem happened?! Didn't they pay ANY attention whenever I tell things? Can't they remember things?
Excuse meeeeeee!!!!! I'm also a sloppy one. A Super Sanguin one. Remembering all those stuffs is a BIG headache!! BAH! If this is how you guys testing my patience, hell!! You've won.

Huuuu huuuuuu [Crying mode: ON]......sebel sebelllllll *nangis sambil nendang-nendang*

Hmmmmmm...brb, phone call!


Waaaaaaaa leganyaaaaaaaa abis ngomel puanjang lebar sama Hiro. Yayangku emang Te O Pe banget buat bikin kepalaku dingin. Selalu available kapanpun dibutuhkan. Dia bersedia bayar pulsa telpon buat jadi trash bin-ku kapanpun aku bilang sumpek. Bisa bikin tenang sama kata-katanya dia (yang menurut teman2ku gak bisa dimengerti...kayak kumur-kumur). Dan gak pernah push me or paksa aku memutuskan sesuatu. Kebebasan memilih selalu di tanganku. Cieeee...demokrasi pekkk. Dia cuma kasih beberapa pilihan, semuanya INDEED kalo dipikir-pikir baik buatku. Nah lo...bikin tambah bingung gak sih?! Tapi emang CINTA kan membingungkan yaaaa???????

Kangen ama hugs hugs nya. Nanti malam telpon ahhh, minta big hug ama wet kiss. Hari ini mulai lagi deh......menghitung hariiiiiiii

Angels and Demons

Remember the famous Da Vinci Code?

This novel titled Angels and Demons belongs to the same writer, Dan Brown. I got it as a birthday present from my bestfriends actually, but I didn't really have time to read it. Until last weekend, when I got plenty time to finish this novel while sunbathing.

This novel amused me more than the Da Vinci Code -since I don't like Da Vinci Code's ending. Still bringing up topic related to Christianity, combined with high technology equipment; the novel then invited my curiosity more about Catholic ancient history plus the secret brotherhood against it, never ending conflict between science and religion, widely description of Catholic most sacred place, analitical thinking to break ancient code, and the thrill while following Robert Langdon's adventure throughout the story. Really really interesting!!! Two thumbs up!!!!!

I read some reviews.......again some controversials were written regarding the content of this novel. Especially because the novel has something to do with Catholic, its history and assets. Maybe it's good being a POOR Catholic like me hehehe. Not religious enough to fight this marvelous literature yet enjoying and believe every fiction written there.

Today I spent my free time browsing about Path of Illumination and the tombs, Vatican's secrets, Rome's best churches and tombs, the Swiss Guard, and Galileo and Bernini's art. Also about CERN and its technology, including the antimatter. Thanks to Dan Brown (^_-), without reading his books I won't have any clue to these amazing facts. Bit regret I didn't go to Rome last year huuuu huuuu.....

Behind number 21

Several things accidently happened in my life that is connected to number "21" or 1 and 2.

At first I didn't pay attention to it, but as more and more things happened, wouldn't it be more than just "coincidence".......?

My birthdate is 21 February and Hiro's is 21 October.
I met Hiro on 12 May 2003
Hiro went back to Japan last 2 years on the 21 July- first time we got separated.
Hiro went back to Japan after spending 9 days with me last 21 January
My visa to Japan last time was stamped on 21 March, would be expired on 21 June
In Japan we stayed at East 21 hotel
Our hotel room in Bali last weekend was 9021
Just got my re-newed passport. Issued on 21 April, and would be expired on 21 April 2010

Interesting, huh? The coincidences always surprised us and made us laughing. Hmmmm I'm wondering what other 21 will happen next? Let's wait and see (^_^)

Do you believe in such coincidence, friends? (^_-)

I'm back and happy and tanned...


I'm Back......!!!!!
Back to my messy desk, back to my dusty lap top, back to my cold office, back to never-ending-phone-calls, back to REAL-BUSY-LIFE. Came to my crowded office right from the airport, beautiful in my tanned skin, and never feel so alive like this.

Hiro flied back to Japan yesterday night. I felt so damn lonely as I got back to the hotel after sending him to airport. Saying good bye would always be the hardest thing, and being lonely will always be the feeling left behind. But this is the risk of having long distance relationship. Being positive is a must. I learnt from my experiences. Now I will re-call the nicest memories spent together whenever I feel lonely. And so I can smile again, and so he can feel it, and so both of us will have our brightest smile (^_______^) or loudest laugh.

Love is beautiful in its own way. I'm happy to have the feeling. And I'm happy to be able to express it freely. Being with each other is the best moment -when we can share our ideas, debate our opinion about ANYthing, talk about plan and dream and future, watch DVDs and play PS2 together, walk along the beach, play with wave and sand and tiny crabs, sunbathing and read novels and comics together, watch our first sunset together, fight for our favourite sandwich club, brush our teeth, do all the stupid and wild things, laugh and laugh and laugh.

Dear dear dear Hiro....being with you is the most precious moment.

Hontou ni arigatou *hugs hugs*

Hihihihihiihi imoet lagi romantis nih [blushing mode: ON]

Pagi hariku

Ya Tuhan....blom jam 10 pagi, tapi mataku bueraaatttttttt buanget huks huks huks. Inilah nasib kalo harus kerja di hari libur. Disaat orang2 masih bobok2 manis.

Tadi pagi dibangunin alarm jam 4:15. Time to wake Hiro up. Orang itu kan bermasalah banget kalo bangun tidur. Biasanya sampe gulat n seret2an, belum lagi kalo kumat manja minta digendong. Padahal berat badannya 1.5 kali ku. Penyiksaan di pagi hari. HUH....meskipun jauh, tetep aja nyiksa nih. Bayangkan aku harus bangun sepagi buta itu. Even earlier dari Mbak Parti!! Tapi yah...berhubung aku gak mau dia telat sampe airport, di rela relain deh....hihihi. Eeeee.....begitu ditelpon dia malah ngomel2 ama suara yg beratnya se-ton. Kalo gak for the sake for our holiday, pasti udah aku maki balik tadi!!

Trying to continue my sleep sih....tapi GAK BISA. Sampe muter kanan, muter kiri, dan akhirnya terjebak dalam selimut kusut (kebanyakan dipake muter-muter). BETE. Eeee....pas akhirnya bisa tidur sekejap, bangun kaget kena mbak Parti bersihin jendela kamarku. Huaaaaa.....orang ini kalo bersih2 kok kayak lagi penuh dendam gitu sih?! Mungkin dia bete sama anak2 kost yang semuanya lagi ngorok while dia kudu bersih2. [kesimpulan orang bete dipagi hari nih].

Then aku lihat jam...jam 05:00. Hmmm masih ada sejam before the second alarm rang. Tapi ya itu....udah terlanjur susah tidur. Hhhhhhh sedihnya......Then lagi2, baru tidur paling 10 menit, alarm udah ber tut-tut-tut. Pengen kulempar rasanya tu HP. Untung sadar kalo mahal! Then kuputuskan snooze 10 menit lagi. Eeeeee.....baru 4 menit ama nyo udah di miskol!! (>_<)
Tapi ya untunglah......coba kalo enggak, snooze bakal berlanjut sampe jam setengah delapan deh kayaknya, dan project tadi pagi bakal gagal.

So....abis mandi kilat n nyelesein packing tadi malam yang kepotong tidur; Aku, Vei ama Nyo berangkat ke rumahnya Gie. Mo kasih birthday surprise buat dia. Benerannya sih maunya tadi malam......tapi ngantuk n capek banget. Lagian variasi lah...masak bdae surprise selalu midnight. Sekali2 di early in the morning dong. Lagian Gie kan juga bermasalah kalo bangun tidur. Pasti seru hihihi *iseng laugh*

Sampe rumahnya Gie dan ngintip kamarnya, dia lagi bobok ngadep tembok dengan posisi "vulgar" wehehehe LUCU banget. can't help myself not to laugh out loud. Ama Nyo udah mau didokumentasikan pake handycam. Untung ama Vei dilarang. Inget2 si Gie paling anti publikasi macam gitu hehehehe. Amukan ibu hamil itu scary pek!

As guessed, dia ngomel2 gak karu2an. Kalo bangun tidur n gak sadar gini, logat maduranya jadi kental banget hahaha. Lutukna.....anak ini emang hiburan semua orang. Polooooos siiiiih.

Wish her happy birthday.....dan nanti siang dia mo anterin spaghetti ke kantor buat lunch. Cik acik....buatannya dia sih...agak menakutkan gitu sebenernya. Tapi lumayan lah, gratis (^_^)

Oh...kopi buatan Mariza udah datang. Udah dulu ya....

huhuhuhuhu ternyata nulis pake bahasa indonesa raya lebih expresip ya teman-teman....

Several good things happened recently...

Gie will have a baby boy, as expected by everybody in her family. Congrats congrats. Hopefully will be as handsome as Ardi hehehehe

Heard this morning, that Caroline, is pregnant already. I feel like just yesterday, we went to Malang to attend her wedding. Tok cer pekkkk hahahaha. Congrats juga, friend. Hope the baby will fulfill your happiness.

Ella will have her 4th year anniversary tomorrow. Congrats congrats. Your sincere love is the best gift for Eri. Trust me (^_-). We are expecting your wedding next year.

This morning I made quite a big decision. I refused a job offer. I refused good career and good income. For the sake of my dream (^____^). It's always hard for me to decide kind of important thing. And I feel soooooo good afterwards. After I clicked the "sent" button, and let the offer flying away to the Netherlands.

And tomorrow, I will meet Hiro and spend few days together. What a perfect thing to end this blog, eh?

I'm in love!!! so much in love with Patrick (^______^)

Patrick is a bestfriend of nowadays-famous-cartoon-character, SpongeBob Squarepants.
Gee...."who are they??"
For you who doesn't know yet about this cartoon....kasihan deeeh hihihi

Ok well, let me tell you shortly about this cartoon.

SpongeBob Squarepants lives deep down in the Pasific Ocean, in the city named Bikini Bottom. He is a cute square yellow sea sponge, lives in a pineapple with his pet snail, Gary. SpongeBob's bestfriends are Patrick the starfish and Sandy Cheeks, the squirrel.
SpongeBob is the main character of this cartoon, but I just fell in love at once I knew about Patrick. He has no occupation. He enjoys doing everything that SpongeBob does. According to the story, Patrick is the dumbest creature under the sea. That's why he could attract my attention best.

See my patrick doll!! birthday gift from sweet Yendy, my colleague.

Being the dumbest, Patrick's life is so simple. He is innocent, and sees all aspect of lives in a very simple way. If you see his physical appearance, maybe you can conclude a brief summary. He's so dumb because he has a very small brain (see the size of his head comparing to his stomach!) hahaha.

Sometimes I think....maybe it's nice being so dumb. You won't bother thinking about how complicated your life is. You won't have any tiny idea about politics and dirty games in life. You will just believe at once whatever people say. Your mind won't be bothered with "if...." and "if.....". Your life would be about black and white. You will just smile widely, raise your eyebrows innocently and flow wherever the faith brings you.

Being Patrick...being simple....

Yet Am not.

[Happy mode:ON]

KREKKK KREKKK KREKKKK *stretching sound from my hips*

I can hardly open my eyes this morning. The sunshine entered my room through the window even urged me to cover my head with blanket. Hmmmm Monday already. I slept for two days in a row!!! I forgot when was the last time I slept this much. Perhaps when I got hospitalized last year...? (^_-)

Good to know that I feel much better this morning. Though I still haven't got my cute voice back, I can already look at my monitor for hours; concentrate to finish the left target and manage to submit the first quarter report to Juz few minutes ago.

(^______^) see my wide smile?! .....and OH!! What month is it today? May..May...May.....Got my salary transferred. What a nice morning, huh?

*dizzy imoet is happy*
