Girls Night Out =p

Yey yey yeyy! Yesterday I went out with my girls agaainn! ^^ When I say "my girls", it refers to Pung2, Evelin, Arline, Fangdya, Jen2, and Cing2. Unfortunately there was no Cing2 because she's in Kuala Lumpur right now, doing her internship :(

Last time, we did sports together (click here to read the post), and yesterday, we did a different thing again. We spent night in Arline's house, yeayy! Spending night in Arline's house is like a must thing to do for us, because we nearly do this every holiday =) The interesting part about yesterday was, she was all alone in her house! (Accompanied by her servants, hehe..) Her parents went to Bandung for a wedding party, and her sisters are in Singapore - they went to Super Junior's concert there -.-" Arline just moved to her new house around two years ago, so yesterday was the first time for us to stay there. It's a quite big new house, and it was all ours! Hahahaha.. It felt like we're having our own villa =D

Arline picked us up at our houses yesterday evening - yes, we were going to go to her house but she was the one who had to pick us up, ahhaha.. Sorry, Dear, I can't drive a car, hehehehe.. We went to have dinner first, then went to her house. We talked like crazy, because it's been so long we hadn't have such a great meeting or "reunion". There were so many things to be shared, and lots of gossips, too, of course! Haha.. Not for so long after we were all in the car, we started to lose our voice, HAHAHA..







We played cards, took some pictures, then we went to Hare & Hatter to have a little dessert - girls heart dessert! And again, another pictures:



The girls set this picture as their Blackberry Messenger's profile picture, and their status was "Cing2, we miss you", showing her that we didn't forget her and we really miss her - we wished she were there, too. However, she was so sad and envied us so bad when she saw it. She also wanted to be with us desperately. That's why we then decided to add her into our pictures:




=)

That night, we continued our talk in bed, gossiping, even though we were tired and sleepy, but still, we kept on talking, till we all fell asleep at the same time, hahahha..

This morning, we went to "Pasar Citraland" - the nearest market, and had Nasi Pecel for our breakfast. It was my first nasi pecel since I arrived in Surabaya! Yumm! *Greedyy*

But our reunion had to come to an end today. Pung2 and Fangdya had to go to the campus and the rest of us had to go back to our own home - our family missed us! :D

Anyway, we agreed that it wasn't the last meeting of this holiday. We will go somewhere again after the Chinese Lunar New Year, maybe to have lunch together. Oh, I can't wait for it! Because meeting them is always fun! They're my besties, my BFF - Best Friends Forever! ^^

you, Girls!

P.S: Me and Jenita are the last girls that are single! >.< hahaha.. Happy for y'all! :)

h-a-p-p-y! =p

Hai hai haii! Oh la la! Hahahaha.. Kayak orang gila yaa? Wkwkwkwkk.. Yahh, begini lah saya kalo lagi senang ;p

Masih inget postku yang tentang my new hobby(ies) and interest(s)? Salah satu yang ada di dalam daftar itu adalahphotography. Sebenernya kalo foto2 tuh uda hobi sejak lama, cumann, hobi untuk difoto lebih besar dibanding jadi fotografernya, hahahaha.. Dasar narsis! =p Sejak ngeliat2 website-nya axioo dan blog-blog orang, apalagi ditambah facebook en temen2 yang makin banyak upload foto2 mereka, interest aku sama fotografi rasanya tergelitik kembali! Halah! Bahasanyaa, hahaha..

Tapiii, aku takut dibilang "copycat". Ato cuma sekedar mengikuti tren. Apalagi kuliahku kan bidangnya jauuuuhhh banget ama yang namanya fotografi. Jadi, aku tau aku ga akan bisa sebegitu mendalami fotografi. Biasa aja, kayak jalanin hobi tapi ga bisa diseriusin. Makanya, aku pengen beli kamera yang bagus tapi bukan SLR. Selain harganya ga murah, juga takut dicap "copycat" ato korban tren itu lagi. Huff! Susah ya jadi aku! Hahaha..

Tadinya aku pengen beli compact camera ajaa punya Canon (I heart Canon!). Ga usah SLR, biasa aja yang penting Canon, haha.. Yang penting hasilnya bagus. Ini nih yang udah bagus banget:


Canon PowerShot S95

atau


Canon PowerShot G12

Banyak yang bilang nanggung banget! Mending beli SLR sekalian. Persetan dengan semua kata orang, mereka mo bilang aku korban tren atau apalah! Wkwwkwkwk..

Tapi setelah aku nyoba2 SLR Nikonnya Yongky, trus SLR Canonnya Evan, aku sendiri jadi berpaling ke SLR =p Tapi masih belum 100% juga, masih mikir, mikir, dan mikir, rundingan juga ama papa.

Setelah papa & ccku nanya2 harga dan memikirkan semua pertimbangan dengan matang, rupanya yang beruntung terpilih untuk menjadi milikku adalah:


Canon EOS 1000D!

Apapun komennya tentang 1000D ini, pokoknya dia uda ada di samping aku sekarang ini, ready to capture the moments in my life. Halaahh! Hahaha.. Udah cinta kok ma si 1000D :)

Sekarang tinggal belajarnya aja, memperdalam sedikit pengetahuan tentang penggunaannya. Masih baru banget, belum pernah belajar sebelumnya & sekarang lagi belajar sendiri dikit2. Yahh, moga2 Si Hitam bisa menghasilkan karya yang layak untuk dinikmati baik oleh orang lain maupun untuk koleksi pribadiku, huehehehehe..

Yang penting sekarang aku hepi hepi hepii dehh! ^^ Hihihihii..

"The" Challenge: Day 04

Day 04 - Your views on religions

Oh well, I have to be honest with you: this is the topic I don't really like and I always try to avoid. But I have no choice now! Hehehe.. I don't like to talk about religions because it's a very very sensitive thing. It is very personal, because it's all about people's personal thoughts, beliefs, and principal.

For me, each religion has its own good. I'm sure that each of them must teach its disciples good things. To be a good person, to always do good deeds to other people, etc, etc. So, I don't like judgement and I, myself, try not to judge other religions as well. I know, it's hard. We must feel and think that our own religion is the best. Why? Isn't it because we know very well about our religion, what it is about, what it teaches us, and we keep on growing our faith according to our religion? Exactly! If we do, then so do other people from other religions! That's why we don't have the rights to judge them. We can't tell that ours is the best, which one is right and which one is wrong. It's simply because we don't know about other religions aside from our own religion AT ALL. Talking and judgin about them will just show the world how stupid we are, and make we fight with our very own brothers and sisters from other religions. Religions are good, but it again depends on the people themselves. Because I don't think Jesus came to promote any religion. He only asked us to follow Him, to do good deeds as what He did, and to pray to Our Father. Well, at least that's what I think, that's my personal opinion. If I write something wrong, I'm sorry - oh, believe me, I hate talking about this! I hate to disturb the peace of life, hahahahha..

I'm not that kind of person who reads the bible very much. I don't know much about the verses - don't expect me to remember or tell what the A, B or C verse tells. But I do go to church every Saturday or Sunday. I do fast, I do pray everyday, and I do trust in God. Isn't the last thing I wrote the most important thing? To believe in God, to trust in God, to have faith in God. Being faithful. Oh no, not ONLY being faithful, but also our DEEDS. Read the bible everyday, go to the church everyday, and pray everyday, but you don't apply it all in your daily life, then it's all a BIG ZERO!

Umm.. I guess that's all from me now.. I don't wanna talk too much, haha.. And also I don't know much - I'm not gonna lie to you - there are so many people who know much more than me out there, so, let them talk, not me. Instead, let me grow more by their sharing, and grow personally by His help, only me and God =)

Puisi: what your heart's screaming but your lips can't tell

Liburan.. Di rumah.. What do I usually do? Aku belakangan lagi baca beberapa buku. I love reading! Dan salah satunya aku lagi baca ini nih:



"Abadilah Cinta", karangan Andrei Aksana. Bukan, aku bukan lagi mau merekomendasiin buku ini ke kalian, karena aku masih belum selesai baca jadi masih ga tau the whole story, masih belum bisa menyimpulkan it is recommended for you or not :)

Di dalam novel ini, banyak banget puisinya. Dan buat aku yang suka puisi, novel ini menggugah semangatku buat nulis puisi lagi. Tapi anehnya ya, aku ga bisa bikin puisi kalo puisinya ga ditulis tangan, hehe.. Soalnya, kata-katanya tuh serasa ngalir gitu aja sembari aku lagi nulis. Bukan ngetik. Belum pernah nyoba sih bikin puisi sambil ngetik, tapi biasanya "ngalirnya" ya pas nulis tangan itu, hehe.. Udah gitu kalo nulis puisi kan idenya ato feelingnya keluar tiba2, jadi pas idenya nongol, harus buru2 cari kertas & pensil/bolpen deh, haha.. Kalo kepepet yahh baru pake HP. Ato emang puisinya uda bener2 jadi di otak, hehe.. Soalnya kalo ditunda-tunda, puisinya tar ga bakal sama. Ato feel-nya uda ilang, ga jadi bikin deh puisinya, hehe..

Sekarang aku mau lebih sering nulis puisi ahh, kayak pas jaman2 SMP SMA dulu, hihii.. Oh ya, sebenernya aku lebih suka ga kasih judul untuk puisiku, soalnya suka bingung kasih judulnya apaan, haha.. Buat aku, seluruh kalimat di puisi itu penting, jadi ga bisa nentuin yang mana yang lebih penting untuk dijadiin "tema" ato judul dari puisi itu :) Biasanya aku kasih judul cuma buat "formalitas" ato "keharusan" aja, hehe.. Kecuali emang ada tema dari awal. Kalo random thoughts doang kan susah..

Aku biasanya bikin puisi berdasarkan isi hati. Jadi, kayak "jeritan hati" gitulah, hahahaha *dramatis bener*

Dan entah kenapa, mungkin lagi mellow juga, aku tiba2 kembali teringat dan menguak sedikit tentang dia, masa laluku.

Kukira, duka itu telah pergi
Kukira, luka itu telah hilang
Kukira, tlah kubuang dia jauh
Hilang, lenyap dari hidupku
Tak bersisa..


Kusangka, ku tlah lewati semuanya
Kusangka, masa-masa gelap itu tlah berlalu
Kusangka, tak kan ada lagi air mata dapat menetes
Bersih, habis
Tak bersisa..


Nyatanya?
Aku masih tak berdaya
Memang kau tak lagi menghuni hatiku
Dan tak lagi melintas dalam benakku
Tapi kala kau hadir sesaat dalam pikiranku
“Sesaat” itu berubah menjadi air mata
“Sesaat” yang berujung pada kepedihan tak terkira
Semua itu hanya karena luka ini


Ya, sakit itu tak kunjung hilang
Pedih itu tak kunjung pergi
Dan entah kapan luka itu akan sembuh
Hanya waktu yang dapat menjawab
Tapi, bukankah waktu itu tak pasti?
Siapakah dapat mengontrol waktu?


Mengapa yang kita berdua awali dengan indah
Harus berakhir dengan kepahitan
Yang tidak pasti dimana ujungnya?
Tak bisakah ada damai di antara kita?
Tanpa sakit hati, tanpa kebencian


Hanya waktu yang dapat menjawab
Waktu, yang tidak pernah memberikan kepastian
Kapan ia akan memberi jawabnya


Itu pas lagi mellow abiss tadii.. Kalo ditunda ga dituangin ke puisi saat itu juga, puisi ini ga akan pernah tercipta, karena sekarang2 ini, aku ga lagi mikirin orang itu seperti dulu :) Cuma sesekali. Sesaat. Sesaat yang membawa petaka --> jadi puisi lagi dehh tar -.-" hahahahaha.. Intinya, I'm definitely over him alreadyy!! Cuma lukanya yang belum sembuh & entah kapan bakal sembuh *curcol dehh! :p*
Sekian dulu untuk sekarang! ;)

“The" Challenge: Day 03

Day 03 - Your views on drugs and alcohol

I am a type of person yang ga mau jadi orang yg terlalu "kuper" or geek. Maksudnya? Umm.. Pake contoh aja yaa ngejelasinnya, hehe.. Misalnya, aku ga bener2 say "no" to clubbing or drinking. Gue ga mau ngelarang diri gue sendiri untuk pergi dugem ato apapun (dugem cuman sebagai contoh), karena menurut gue pribadi, kalo gue bener2 ga tau apa2 tentang sesuatu, ntar kalo misalnya lagi apes gue berada di situasi ato kondisi yg gue ga pernah tau apa2 tentang itu sebelumnya, gue ga akan tau gimana cara menghadapinya. Let's say, kalo gue melarang diri sendiri untuk dugem, yg artinya gue ga pernah dugem, trus someday ada orang yg maksa2in buat dugem (anggep aja orang yg jahat ato ga terlalu deket), gue gampang ditipuin di sana en ga bisa jaga diri, ga tau gimana harus bersikap or apa yg harus dilakuin. Tapi karena gue pernah beberapa kali *haha* dugem, gue jadi tau sikon waktu dugem, apa yg orang2 lakuin di sana en gimana cara gue jaga diri kalo2 ada orang2 yg usil gangguin gue pas dugem. Gue juga jadi bisa belajar buat menjaga diri & membatasi diri, hal2 apa aja yg boleh gue lakuin selama di tempat itu. Well, dalam hal ini memang tergantung manusianya ya, harus bener2 bisa jaga diri & tau batesan sendiri, jangan ampe kebawa arus orang2 yg ga bener.. Trus, kalo gue bener2 ga pernah dugem, pas ada yg nyetan2in buat dugem dan ternyata gue keasikan, gue jadi bisa lupa diri, kayak harimau lepas dari kandang gitulah kira2, jadi ga kekontrol.. Dapet ga?

Itu bener2 pendapat gue pribadi yaa, itu prinsip pribadi gue. Bukan berarti gue menyalahkan - atau apapun - orang2 yg ga berprinsip kayak gue. Trus karena gue juga orangnya supel, rame nan heboh *haha* jadi yaa gituu.. Asal rame2, ikut ajaa, enjoy ajaa.. Asal bisa jaga diri & tau batesan: apa tujuan gue pergi dugem? Birthday party temen? Dance? (Secara gue cinta mati ama dance, seringnya kalo gue dugem tuh cuma gara2 pengen dance -.-" ) Kalo tujuannya cuman itu, yaudah. Ga lebih. Don't do anything beside that.

Bahkan, seorang temen pernah bilang kalo orang yg pertama kali ngenalin dia ke rokok tuh bokapnya sendiri. Kaget?? Gini, justru bokapnya tuh pengen anaknya kenal ama rokok pertama kali dari bokapnya sendiri, bukan dari temen2nya ato orang laen. Bokapnya suruh dia coba ngisep tuh rokok & tasted it herself that rokok tuh ga enak. Jadi dia ga menyimpan rasa penasaran sama rokok yg nantinya bakal bikin dia malah coba2 sendiri & jd perokok. Menurut gue, that's cool. Bokapnya adalah seorang yg open-minded & ga conventional banget cara berpikirnya. Hasilnya? She doesn't smoke. Again, semua itu balik lagi ke diri kita masing2..

Gue punya pendapat yg berbeda tentang drugs and alcohol. Jujur, I do drink. Alcohol itu salah satu yg termasuk di dalem prinsip gue. Minum dikit lahh, tapi secara gue orangnya minum dikiiiittt doang aja uda bisa mabok, jadi yaa pernah ampe mabok jg, hehe.. Actually I kinda like a little alcohol, even my grandmother, my mom and my sister like it too. We used to drink a little sometimes - like, VERY little - and we mixed it with ice cube, haha.. Tapi, sekarang gue udah sangat2 mengurangi dua hal itu, kok (dugem & alcohol). Berasa udah tua, euyy! Uda males, capek, en itu kan bagian dari resolusi taon baru gue untuk ngurangin clubbing hahaha (click here).

Meskipun punya prinsip seperti itu, tapi tetep, ada 3 hal yang gue bener2 ga mau deket2, ga mau sentuh2, ga pengen coba2, pokoknya STAY AWAY from them lahh.. They are: SMOKING, DRUGS and FREE SEX.


Smoking : I hate smoke. I hate smokers. I hate people who smoke near other people. I hate everything about smoking. Ga pernah sekalipun, sedetikpun gue berpikiran ato berkeinginan buat mencoba rokok. It kills people, smokers and non-smokers. Dan yg gue keselnya ama smoking people, mereka bikin non-smokers in danger jg. Udah tau kan, kalo non-smokers have higher risks of lung cancer than the smokers themselves?


Drugs : Puji Tuhan, gue ga pernah deket2 sama barang2 ini.. Sama kayak smoking, gue juga ga pengen nyobain. Free sex is the same thing, too.


Thank God gue masi diberi akal sehat, pikiran jernih untuk tetep stay away dari tiga hal itu. However, gue ga mau menghakimi mereka2 yg ga berprinsip sama ma gue tentang tiga hal ini, I believe they have reasons for that. Mungkin addicted, stress, atau masalah hidup yg lain. Cuma berharap, mereka cepet dipulihkan & dijauhkan dari barang2 itu, en bisa handle & survive from their problems.

“The” Challenge: Day 02

It's time for the blogging challenge day 02!


Day 02 - Where you'd like to be in 10 years.


Umm.. Good question, actually! Hahaha.. Well, honestly speaking, I still don't know where I'd like to be in 10 years. Because I even still have no any plans on what I am gonna do after being graduated - continue my study? working? get married? hahahaha. Either studying, working or getting married, I also still don't have any idea of where it'll be. Just grab any chance that hopefully will be the best for me.. Let God show His plans for me :)


Wherever I will be, it's not the most important thing. I always imagine a future with a caring and faithful husband, a happy little family, surrounded by my beloved ones. That's the only dream. Okay, gotta be honest, I'm an England freak, hihii.. I always want to be there someday, either for travelling or for study - hopefully live there? >.< But again, it's not important. Even if I have to go somewhere isolated, where nothing can be found there, but as long as I'm with my beloved husband and family, I think I'll be happy. Like, REALLY HAPPY :)


Hopefully, 10 years later, I will be sitting beside my husband, re-reading this post and smiling! Amen! Hihii..


So. I never think about "where", but "who" or "when", instead. Hahaha.. Too fairytale-ly? Anyway, that's so me, huh? ;)

Holiday's Reminder

Beberapa minggu yang lalu, waktu aku lagi stres2nya ama ujian,  seperti biasa, aku buka blog-nya Ci Shinta *lohhh, lagi stres ujian kok malah buka blog, bukannya belajaarr?? Hahahaha, biasaaa :P* Trus si Cc kebetulan baru nge-post 1 post yang, seperti biasa, was a very good reminder & inspired me. Post-nya tentang Joyfully Insensitive (to read it, click here).

Sekarang, aku tiba-tiba teringat sesuatu yang bikin aku bikin post ini, of course, inspired by THAT post.
Sekarang kan aku & temen2 lagi liburan sebulan setelah 1 semester panjang yang melelahkan kemaren *ga pentingg, hihii*. Some of us, including me, pulang Indo dongg! Tapi ga sedikit juga yang teteup stay di China. Ada senior-senior angkatan 2006 yang ga bisa pulang karena ga libur (ada kelas preparation buat internship mereka selama setaon ke depan), ada super senior yang baru aja graduated kemaren tapi belum bisa pulang karena nunggu surat2 or sertifikat, atau masih lagi nyari2 univ buat S2 mereka, en banyak juga junior2 yang ga pulang karena mau jalan2 explore China ato sekedar spend time di China *tujuan awalnya sih pada mo memperdalam bahasa mandarin, hihihii*

Nahhh!! Kita2 yang pulang ke Indo pasti pada excited dongg! Akhirnyaaa, setelah sekian bulan berpisah dari ortu, keluarga en temen2 di Indo, pergi merantau ke negeri orang demi menuntut ilmu *halahh!!* sekarang kita bisa ketemuan lagi sama mereka, enjoy life like we can never do in China karena keterbatasan dana & fasilitas sebagai mahasiswa/i yang hidup d asrama, wkwkk.. Bisa ke sana ke sini, bisa makan makanan Indo yang uda kita kangenin sepuasnya, de el el.

Makanya ga heran kalo belakangan ini banyak dijumpai "manusia2 bahagia" yang meng-upload foto2 mereka yang lagi di Indo di Facebook. Salah? Nggak! Sama skali ga salah. Tapi, liat-liat dulu juga, yang di-upload tuh foto2 apaa.. Kalo foto2 kita ketemu sama temen2 ya oke lahh ya.. Tapi yang banyak ditemuin adalah foto2 makanan! Gue abis makan ini, makan itu, makanan favorit di Indo, makanan ter-enak di Indo, yang semuanya so pasti sangat menggiurkan. Trus aku jadi mikir.. Aku aja yang di Indo jadi tergiur ngeliat foto2 mereka itu *hehehehe emang dasaarr rakuuss! :P*, gimana mereka2 yang stay di China ya???

Dan bener lahh, kawan2.. Gara2 ada seseorang yang seriiiinnngggg banget upload foto2 makanan dia - tiap pegi makan dia selalu foto & upload ke FBnya kali yahh? - sampe2 ada orang laen yang masi stay di "perantauannya" kasi comment, "Please please, bisa ga jangan upload foto2 makanan lo lagii? Kasihani kami yang di sini, huhuu.." Gitulah kira2.. Ada juga yang nitip pesen di status FBnya.. Walah walahh.. Tapi tuh orang masi ga stop lhooo uploadnya, masi tetep jalaaann truuusss..

Susah juga yahh! Keliatannya ini salah, itu salah.. Tapi, emang susah kalo udah ngomongin situs jejaring sosial yang semua orang di belahan dunia manapun bisa liat. Aku ga nyalahin kok, kalo kita lagi seneng, en dalam hal ini seneng cuz akhirnya kita bisa menikmati makanan "rumah" kita lagi, kita bener2 excited ampe2 pengen share ke seluruh duniaa *lebay lagi, haha*. Ga munafik, aku juga sempet pengen foto trus upload ke FB kalo pas lagi makan makanan yang bener2 aku suka tapi cuma bisa aku temuin di Indo. Tapi, aku inget sama mereka2 yang ga pulang, en membayangkan kalo aku jadi mereka. So pasti kangen berat ama banyak makanan Indo, tapi ga pulang, ehhh, malah liat foto2 tuh makanan2 dengan pose2 yang sungguh menggiurkan lidah & bikin produksi air liur meningkat, hehe.. Esmosi gaa tuhh??

Yahh, jadi intinya, aku cuman mau ngingetin, buat kita2 yang mungkin sekolah di luar negeri, ato kerja, ato pokoknya stay di luar negeri, I know exactly how it feels to be home. Tapi aku mau ngajak kalian2 biar lebih "sensitive". Lebih mikirin juga mereka2 yang ga pulang. Kalo mau, paling ya sesekali ajaa uploadnya, ga perlu SETIAP KALI ato sering bangett.. Kan kasian tuhh mereka.. Kalo lagi hamil, anaknya tar jadi ileran kali tuh, hahahaha..

Aku rasa, kalo foto2 lagi di sini, di sana, ga gitu masalah, tapi kalo urusan makanan, kan namanya juga manusia, agak ga bisa berkompromi dengan napsu, haha.. Ga mau kan, kalo kesenangan kita malah bikin orang mupeng, jealous, iri, dan sengsaraa? Apalagi kalo padahal kita ga ada niatan kayak gitu..  Share kebahagiaan emang bagus, tapi kalo malah bikin orang sakit hati, mendingan disimpen sendiri donggs ahh.. Setujuuu? Hihihii.. Mari bersama kita ciptakan hidup yang damai, haha =D

“The” Challenge: Day 01

Yeaaa! This is the first edition of "The" Challenge, haha.. Still remember that I got challenged by a friend? (If don't, click here!)

I've been quite busy and tired these days after reaching home, that's why I just got the chance to write or fulfill the challenge.

As you know, the first topic is: Your current relationship, if single discuss how single life is.


Topik pertama aja udah "beraat" yakk?! Hahaha.. I think I'm gonna write this in Indonesian, soalnya kayaknya untuk topik ini, bakal lebih "dapet" kalo pake bahasa indonesia *lebih bisa mengutarakan isi hatii hahaha*


Well, my current relationship is: I'm single. Last time being in a relationship? Umm.. Around over two years ago.


The question is: Have I ever been in a SERIOUS relationship? I think the answer is "No".

Sejujurnya yah, kalo ditanya "tujuan hidup" aku sekarang ini apa, mungkin jawabannya bakal "To find my true love". Hahahaha.. Kalo orang lain mungkin tujuan hidupnya pengen sukses lah, karir lancar, de el el, kalo aku bukan itu yang utama, hihii.. Karena menurut aku, kalo udah nemuin "the one" ato our "true love", yang bener2 kita sayang en sayang sama kita, apalagi uda merit & live happily ever after, kebahagiaan udah pasti di tangan. And what matters the most is to live our life happily, ya kaaann? Yupp, you may say I'm a dreamer or a fairy-tale-lover, yes, I might be! But that's me! :D

Kedengerannya desperate kahh? No, aku ngga bilang kalo aku harus nemuin "dia" sekarang atopun dalam waktu dekat, lho! Karena, I've been in some relationships with some guys having different characters, dan aku belajar banyak dari mereka & pengalaman2ku sama mereka. Oh yes, aku berterimakasih banyak sama mantan2 aku, karena mereka udah ngajarin aku banyak hal & kasih pengalaman ke aku, untuk ga jatuh ke kesalahan yang sama & nemuin yg the best buat aku. Inget, "the best buat AKU", bukan "the best", karena the best buat AKU bukan berarti the best buat ORANG LAIN.

Menurut aku, hidup itu bener2 adalah sebuah pilihan. We have to make decision and every choice has its own risk yang mau ga mau harus kita terima as the consequences. Being single or being in a relationship, masing2 punya enak dan ga enaknya. Kalo kita punya pacar, seneng banget laa, ada yang perhatian sama kita, sayang kita, dll dsb dst. Ga enaknya? Ya ga bisa macem2, udah ga bisa sebebas waktu kita single. Mau ini itu udah ga bisa cuma mikirin diri sendiri ato asal we enjoy doing something. Ada orang yang harus dipikirin, diajak discuss, or sometimes even protects us from doing what we want to do. Bukan overprotect lho tapi! *Say NO to overprotective people!* So, what's good about being single? Bebas! Mau ngapa-ngapain ya ga usah mikirin pacar, bisa berteman seluas-luasnya, ga usah bingung ntar ada yang marah lah, ngambek, dll.. Tapiii, konsekuensinya ya ga ada yang kasih perhatian secara special :)

Banyak orang2 single yang merasa "desperado" buat cari pacar, hehehe.. Bahkan, ga munafik, aku pun ada kalanya pengen cepet2 punya pacar, ga betah jomblo lama2.. (Daaannnn, yang paling sering tuhh MUPENG kalo ngeliat orang ato temen pacaran! Hayooo, ngakuuu! Wkwkwkwkkk ;p) Tapi makin kesini aku makin berusaha untuk enjoy my single life aja, karena ya itu, everything has its own consequences. Ada kebahagiannya sendiri. Ntar, kalopun aku udah punya pacar, belum tentu aku bakal lebih bahagia dari aku yang sekarang. No guarantee for that at all. Atau, nantinya aku pasti bakal merindukan saat2 aku single, missing my single life. Makanya, selagi bisa, aku berusaha nikmatin & jalanin aja yang ada sekarang. Asal ga kebablasan enjoy single life, lho! Too much enjoying single life juga bahayaa! Orang single nggak selalu berarti ga ada yang mau sama mereka ato ga ada yang cocok sama mereka lho. Ga sedikit juga mereka single karena pilihan mereka sendiri. Mungkin ya karena itu, mereka enjoy their single lives too much. Aku juga ga mau kayak gitu, hehehe..

Apalagi, dengan umur yang sekarang - 22 taon! - pemikiran tentang pacaran tuh uda bedaaaa bangettt dibandingin ma jaman2 SMP SMA duluu.. Kalo waktu SMP SMA, kita masih bisa dengan gampangnya jadian ato putus. Asal suka sama suka, kita jadian. Asal udah ngerasa ga nyaman, ga cocok ato bahkan bosan, kita putus. Sekarang? No waaayyy! Capeee, bo, kalo kayak gituu.. Pengennya pasti udah yang serius laa.. Makanya sebelum jadian aja, ga bisa cuma sekedar asal sama2 suka trus jadian, harus mikir lebih panjang lagi.. Kalo uda jadian lama juga ga bisa asal bosen trus putus.. Kapan getting seriousnya, buu? Hehehe..

Trus, sekarang aku juga berusaha lebih sayang sama diri sendiri. Maksudnya? I wasn't over my ex. I was so not over him. I was kinda obsessed or trapped. Meskipun uda putus lama & tau semua jeleknya dia, tapi aku masiiihh aja sayang. Bego yaa? Cowo2 laen datang dan pergi tapi hatiku masih mandeg di situ2 aja. But then my eyes were opened and my heart is closed for him now. I will never ever let him disturb me again, I will never ever let him enter my life again. Why? Because I know I deserve a lot better! And there are so MANY guys much much better than him. Trust me! Intinya adalah, kalo mancing, jangan asal dapet ikan seadanya trus langsung puas, but search for the better one. Ingat, bukan cari yang "the best", but "the best for you".

Makanya, biarpun lagi deket sama siapapun, tapi aku berusaha ga ambil keputusan terburu2 & lebih "menjaga hati". Biar ga gampang jatuh ke lubang yang sama dong! Hehehe.. Sampe kapan? Sampe bener2 yakin dong, dan ga mengawali hubungan cuma dengan "coba-coba" ato maen2.

Buat kamu2 yang sama2 lagi single, enjoy! And love yourself more! Karena kita semua berharga, kita semua unik dan there are so many people surrounding us that love us! Jadi anggota JOJOBA dong: JOmblo-JOmblo BAhagia, hahahahah ;D

Eittsss! Tapi bukan berarti aku sekarang lagi ga mau pacaran, lho! Aku ga pernah menarget ato memutuskan sesuatu like, "gue ga mau pacaran dulu sekarang", or any of that. Let it flow aja. Kalo ternyata besok aku nemu seseorang yang cocok, yang bisa bikin aku yakin that he's the one, why not?? Haha.. Cuma ga mau salah pilih & memutuskan aja, ga mau jatuh ke lubang yang sama :)
Someday we'll find "the one". Berdoa aja, minta Tuhan lancarin semuanya, sambil mohon kekuatan dan kesabaran sampai saatnya tibaa. Satu hal yang aku percaya, semuanya akan indah pada waktunya, karena He knows what's best for us & Rencana-Nya itu indah =)


PS: you are very welcomed to give comments or share your thoughts and opinions about this. This post is just based on my personal opinions and I wanna know yours! Okay! ;)

22 :)

January 21st has always been a very special day for me each year. And this year - today - I turn 22!! Ohh time flies, indeed! I feel so old alreadyy, hahaha.. Again, I have the opportunity to celebrate my birthday with my family at home. Yipiiee! ^^

What do birthdays mean to you?

Before, I always thought of getting bigger and older on my birthdays. But now, I'm trying to think of getting more MATURE instead of getting OLDER, hahahaha.. I'm trying to be more mature as my age keeps on increasing >.<

And also, I always thought about ME on my birthdays, but as I'm getting more and more mature, I think about my GOD and my MOTHER on my birthday.

God, my Creator and the one who guides me in every step that I take. Who builds me, educates me through everything happened in my life, yet never leave me alone. He gives me so much blessing, strength and miracle to face and get through the dark. He makes my life beautiful and wonderful by giving me people who love me so much - my parents, siblings, family, and friends. God is Awesome!

And my mom, who struggled against the pain and all of the risks to give birth to me, letting me see the world and feel God's Embrace and Love. Who was always there for me and together with my dad, they are God's greatest gifts I could ever had. And I believe, even until this very second, she IS still with me. Watching me and guarding me :)

Of course, I have so many wishes for my birthday - TOO many, you may say! HAHAHAHA.. I won't mention them here, I just wish they may come true :)

By the way, I haven't got my birthday cake! >.< Hehehehehe..

Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! ^__*

Girls Day Out

As I've written yesterday, (click here), today I met the girls for the first time after over a year!

What did we do? Did we go to the mall, shopping or window-shopping, watching movie, or going to a cafe gossiping (hehehehe)? None of these!!

At around 7AM, two of them - Fangdya and Eveline - picked me up, and we met the rests of the pack (LOL!) - Arline, Jenita, Henny. Where were we going?


Too small?



They are the girls - Jenita, Eveline, Henny, Fangdya, Arline, captured by me! =p

Yes, we decided to go to a club house and having a "sports day"! Hahahahaha.. We are sick and enough of malls, that's why we wanted to do sports together - more fun, trust me!


Pretty, eh?

Here is the interior:


We started the day by playing badminton and basketball. I can't play badminton but I was so excited to play basketball! And we want moreeee basketball! Hehehe..

Then we went to the gym!!


Hahahahaha.. It felt so cool and "unsual" to hang out in a gym, but still, we enjoyed it! Hhihii..

After sweating a lot in the gym, we went to the swimming pool! And of course, the sauna and the jacuzzi! ;)



Looks nice, eh? Hihii.. I couldn't take pictures while we were doing all of these, because, you know, we were doing sports, so it was impossible to bring the camera everywhere, hehehe..



*Actually, there are 3 elephants behind us, but we are BIGGER than them!! Hahahaha*

What an exhausting yet fun day! And we are looking forward to have another "girls day out" next week, hihii.. Hopefully this time Pung2 will be able to join us. We missed you todaay! >.<

Home! =)

Hiii!! This is my first post since I arrived in my hometown, Surabayaa =)

I arrived on January 18, at around 12:30 AM.  There were 21 people going from Suzhou to Kuala Lumpur, but then there were only 3 people - me, Ko Anto and Stacia - going to Surabaya - the rests went to Jakarta. I can say that we had a terrible flight from Hangzhou to Kuala Lumpur. The plane was shaking all the time - may be it was because of bad weather. Most of us were feeling nausea - I almost throwed up :( Anyway, we were happy to be home! :)

However, you know what? The very next day after we left Suzhou, it snowed a lot there!!! Like, A LOT!








(All pictures are taken from Gerry Juan's Facebook)

Do you see that?? Snow all over the cityy! Arghhh!!! I think I'd had the feeling that It was gonna snow after I left, that was why I wasn't whole-hearted to come home, hahahahahha.. They said it's still snowing now! >.< Anyway, I'm happy to be here as well, being with my family, so, I don't regret anything :P

And guess whaaattt?? Tomorrow I'm gonna meet my girlsss for the first time after a year! ^___^ Eveline, Arline, Fangdya, and Jenita. Too bad one of us - Cing2 - is already in Malaysia for internship and Fong2 might not come as well - university tasks thingyy :(

Another thing, today, January 19, is the birthdays of my friends - Jenita and Jean Bury Weymier!!! For Jean, she's also at home now - United States - but eventhough we are far apart, we'll still be remembering each other on our birthdays, because we celebrated our birthdays together last year. It's been a year! Time surely flies? I sent her an e-mail:


Dear Jean,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my dear Jean!!! Ohhh, it's been a year since "that" dayy! Time flies!
I wish you all the best in everything you do, for you and your family as well.. May God's blessings always be with you and may He always guide you in every step you take..
May you have your dream comes true: celebrating birthday in somewhere warm :)


Now, I am hoping that tomorrow I'll be having a good time with the girls - I'm sure we will!!! What can't girls talk about or do together?? Hahahahaha.. I gotta go to bed early today because I gotta get up very early tomorrow. Yeaayyy!! I hope I'll be having some interesting stories and pictures to be shared here, okayy! ;)

H -1

Pulaaaangg! Yes, I'm going home tomorroww! After a year, I finally will be going back to my hometown, meeting my beloved daddy & fam ^_^

I must be very happy, huh? Well, to be honest, I am happy, but not very excited as I should be. Why? Me don't know either. I've been missing home so muccchhhh even from the very beginning of the semester, and I thought about going home all the time that I bought the ticket very early - in October, haha.. But then, now, I'm not that excited as I was anymore. Normally, I would've been super excited to go home, because finally the exams were over and we can have some break, meeting our family and friends back home. And I just found out last night that I'm not the only one who's feeling like this. So is Dinda. And we both don't know why.

I think, it's probably because, we want to go home, but at the same time we also don't wanna leave. Because we know, after coming back to Suzhou, everything won't be the same. At least that's what I'm thinking (I don't know Dinda's thoughts, hehe). When I come back to Suzhou, the seniors would be gone... One of them has left today.. They're leaving one by one.. Today, tomorrow, 'till they're all gone.. Maybe not all - one or two might be staying or even taking their PG here - but most of them are leaving..
And it's probably because we were still busy till the end of the semester that we didn't feel that it's already time to go home. Hehehe.. Yes, this semester was the busiest semester of my busy days in Suzhou :D

We wanna leave, but our hearts are still here.. That's the problem..

Anyway, I have to pack and tidy my room. I SHOULD'VE BEEN packing and tidying my room right now, instead of sitting on my bed and writing this post, haha.. But I'm lazyy to do it >.<

I'm leaving tomorrow morning at 7am, with the other 21 people. Yupp! There are 22 people leaving tomorrow, heading home! It's like we wanna hijack the plane, huh? Hhahahaha..

Well, I guess I'll see you later when I've arrived home! Or maybe tonight while I'm waiting for the bus, haha.. We never sleep one night before the departure date because the bus comes so early and it's better not to sleep than being overslept, hahaha..

See ya!

Blogging Challenge

I got challenged by a friend! *Siapa yaaa? Ehemm2, haha*

What kind of challenge? Well, it is about to write on my blog based on the topics set by "the challenger".
Wanna see the list?



Yes, it's 30 Days Challenge! However, it doesn't mean that I have to accomplish the challenge within 30 days. I can do it at my own pace, but it has to be in order.

Now, as the holiday has begun, I think I'll start doing this. No no no, not this very second, though, because I still have a lot things to do - packing, shopping (haha!), and tidy my room >.< So, I'm doing it at home during the holiday.

See? The first topic is already quite difficult! Hahahaha..
Wish me luck, guys! :D

The Prom

Yesterday, January 14, 2011, we held Prom Night for our seniors.

The crew was the juniors from year 2006 and 2007, with the help of the other juniors, and led by Ega Bonar Bastary.

See the invitation:
(For those living in China, maybe you have to open your Freegate first to see the pictures, because I take them from Facebook. It takes time to upload pictures here :( )




This invitation was made just two nights before the party, and I was sooooo tired and sleepy that it ended up me making some mistakes :( I typed about three names wrong - I'm sorry, guys! - and a color matching mistake.. Awww!! I just realized that I didn't even write the hotel's name!! It should've been written before the address - Regalia Resort & Spa. Too bad!!!!! >.<

Our prom theme was "Movie Premiere", that's why the invitation looks like this. But what made me happy was when I saw the decoration made by our decoration crew:


(Picture is taken from Gerry Juan's Facebook, cropped by me)

Do you see it? The invitation matched the decoration! Hihihi.. The girl is Dinda, the leader of the decoration crew. Well, it's not a big deal, though, because we made everything based on the theme, so no wonder if everything was matching :D


This was my look, hihii..
(Picture is taken from Gerry Juan's Facebook , and cropped by me)

Soooo.. The prom was about the premiere of the movie "MENGEJAR MATApencaHARIan". It started with a video introducing the actors and actresses - our graduated seniors! The Masters of Ceremony were Theresa and Leo. It was followed by the speech from the "Producers": Ega, dr.Ana (Jessica's and Raymond's mom - my fave aunt!!! :D) and Ko Wira, and performance of The Parkinsons Band.

Then, the movie started. It was a parody about the seniors, with the juniors acting as them - me as Panjul (Stephanie), Ega as Simas (Dhimas), Stacia as Anjali (Angelina), Prisca as Dindong (Dinda), Etha as Iping (Ipoenk), Budiman as Jepot (Jeff), Raymond as Jaico (Jessica), Marfen as Karimah (Karina), Klara as Acang (Tana), Martin as Untal (Onal), Igna as Hanto (Anto), and Melisa as Kencup (Valen). I was so worried that the drama would be kind of mess because we didn't have too much time to practice (examsss!!!) and we were still having some mistakes here and there, but thank God it was hillarious, everybody laughed - if they were not attending a prom night, maybe they would've been rolling on the floor, hahhaha - especially when seeing Raymond wearing dress and acting like his sister. They look like each other soo much, not only their faces but also the way the act, their thoughts and everything! I always say that if we make Raymond wearing dress, then we will see Jessi. And it was so interesting to see the "imagination" became real, hahahaha..


The seniors and their clones ;D
(Picture is taken from Gerry Juan's Facebook)

We also had games for them, some band performances - The Parkinsons and Last Minute - and we had The Doctors!! Performing for the very very last time :( singing their hit: Racun Dunia, hehehe - thank God they didn't sing Time is Running Out, hahahaha..

There were three videos played, one was "What do fans say about the stars?", the other was about the stars talking about the others and how's their feelings of being graduated and having to leave, and the last was the video of us, the juniors, singing "Ingatlah Hari Ini" for our beloved seniors. The last two videos were very touching, I think.. Especially seeing some seniors crying in the video.... It must be very very hard to leave.. I can't and I don't wanna imagine the day I'm graduated!!! :(

There was the legendary Prom Dance, too! We had four leading couples dancing - Evan, Prisca, Budiman, Ega Frida, Pin2 Chella and I - before we asked the seniors to dance with us. Some seniors ran and hid even before we asked them to dance! But we finally got them all dancing with us *winkk* The prom dance song was "Cinderella".

The last performance was Dela singing "Sahabat" with Ega playing the guitar, and closing speech by Evan and Dela. The prom was closed by hugging and crying. Even before yesterday's "real" farewell, I was already very sad everytime I thought about them leaving - even now, I burst again when typing, hehehe. We'll never know how much love has grown while we're spending times together - good or bad, sad or happy, ups and downs - until we finally have to say "the" word. I think I've said how much they meant for me on my last post, so I won't say it again here.

Wish you all the best, my brothers and sisters! I'm very sad to lose you, yet so happy for you that now you're doctors! Good luck in your future, all the best in your career, and looking forward to meet you again somehow, somewhere! Hope your dreams come true.. It's still a long way to go.. Take care, keep contact and don't forget us!!

WE ♥ 05 --> kakak sulung =)

Bye-bye, 7th semester!

14.01.2011 --> The very end of my 7th semester of my study!!

Actually, we've finished our "exam marathon" on January 12, but we still couldn't feel relieved because there was one thing we still had to work on: Seniors' Prom Night!

Then, it was all finished, and now, we can officially enjoy our holidaaay! We've been waiting for this break time from all those stressors we had this semester, starting from the preparation of Indonesian Festival until Prom Night.

Are we relieved now? I bet it's a big YES for everybody! Are we happy? Definitely! That's all? No.
I'm feeling very relieved, happy and sad at the same time right now. Happy and relieved because I finally can get proper and peaceful sleep now, and especially because everything turned out great in the end! This semester was ended perfectly beautifully! The prom was great, the seniors loved it - that's the most most important thing! BIG THANKS to all who've involved for your hardwork, dedication and sacrifices.
But why sad, then? Farewell, of course! One thing that I hate the most, but I can't avoid.

Can you imagine of saying goodbye to those who have been the part of your life with for years? For me, they're just like my brothers and sisters. When I was down, when we were preparing for some events - starting from Welcoming Party 2009, the establishment of SISC and Indonesian Festival 2010 - when everybody was critizing, saying unsupporting things that really brought us down, 05 batch were always there. They always give the biggest support. Indeed! They support mentally, financially, and physically. I really really appreciate that.

Whenever I was stressed out, whenever me - and Evan - needed some advices, they gave many. When we started to feel too tired or didn't know what to do, they guided us back on track.

05 is such an inspiration, supporter, advisor, and guide for us. They are our brothers and sisters, they are the part of our big family, SISC. I may say that, no 05, no SISC, and definitely no Indonesian Festival. No memorable appreciation would've been achieved without them.

That was our last tribute for the 12 of you. We really hope it was memorable, just as what everybody was hoping it to be. Thanks for everything you've done, you've given to us. It means so much for us and we hope you know how much we love you guys! ♥ I will mark this day as a very special day =)


P.S: I so lovee the quote of the Prom:
Friendship is like standing on wet cement.. The longer you stay, the harder it is to leave, and you can never go without leaving your footprints behind

Anyways, may I say that I want to enjoy my life now, by having a break time? Hahahaha.. I'm going back to Indonesia on January 17th, which means only 2 days aheadd, hihii.. I'll have to start packing noww, oh noooo! *another stressor? wkwkk*

Well, life's impossible to be without any stress, but what matters is how you cope with it, from which perspective you look at it, and just enjoy life because we have Him! God has helped, and He will always help in his own ways, because He'll never leave us! =)

Happy Holiday, Friends! Enjoyy! ^___^ keep me updated, though!

Bergeming

Hiaatt! Kali ini topiknya adalah "Bergeming". Mari kita perdalam Bahasa Indonesia sejenak, Kawan-kawan! Hahahaha.. Refreshing sebentar dari belajar *alibii* :P Gue memang lagi mau ngomongin Bahasa Indonesia, tapi bukan berarti gue bakal nulis post ini dalam Bahasa Indonesia yang baik dan benar lhoo.. Biar lebih enak dibaca dan ga berkesan kaku, hehehe *alibi lagii*

First of all, no offense yaaa buat siapapun kalo gue bikin post inii, hehe.. Cuman mau sharing aja, soalnya gue prihatin sama banyaknya manusia-manusia Indonesia yang ga tau arti dan penggunaan dari kata "bergeming" ini..

Pertama-tama, ask yourself,  "Apa sih arti bergeming itu?". Apa arti bergeming dan tak bergeming?

Satu..


Duaa...



Tigaaa!!


Hahahaha (ga penting, wkwkk)..

Laluu sekarang, anda boleh mengecek apakah jawaban anda benar atau salah!

Referensi yang paling gue suka adalah dari link ini: http://id.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080908171309AAMEe44
http://pusatbahasa.diknas.go.id/kbbi/ind…
ge·ming Jk,
ber·ge·ming v tidak bergerak sedikit juga; diam saja;
ter·ge·ming v terdiam

http://yulian.firdaus.or.id/2006/07/12/g…

Entah mengapa kini semakin banyak media salah menuliskan arti kata geming. “Tak bergeming” sering dimaksudkan sebagai ungkapan tak bergerak atau diam, padahal sebaliknya justru arti “tak bergeming” adalah tidak diam. Bisa anda lakukan pencarian di Google media mana saja yang salah menuliskan arti kata tak bergeming.


Yes! Benar sekali! Selama ini banyaaakk banget orang yang menyalahartikan tak bergeming sebagai tidak bergerakatau diam, padahaal yang bener adalah yang sebaliknya. Bergeming itu sendiri artinya udah diam.


Kaget? Bingung? Hehe.. Tenangg! Wajaar, anda adalah salah satu dari berjuta-juta masyarakat Indonesia yang ga tau, kok! Bahkan di dunia jurnalistik pun sering banget ditemuin kesalahan ini. Gue cuman sedih ajaa, masyarakat boleh ga tau atau salah, tapi orang-orang yang berkecimpung di bidang jurnalistik harusnya ga boleh salah dong! Kan mereka harusnya udah mengerti dan menguasai betul Bahasa Indonesia yang baik dan benar. Dan lagi, kalo di media-media aja nulisnya salah, gimana masyarakat bisa tau kalo itu salah? Lha wong di media-media aja nulisnya gitu kok, ga mungkin salah dongg? Hohoho..


Gue sendiri pertama kali tau arti yang bener dari kata bergeming ini dari nyokap. Dia pernah kasitau gue kalo selama ini orang-orang salah kaprah tentang arti kata ini. Kata-kata nyokap keinget betul ampe sekarang, thanks Mom! :)


Keren yah? *membanggakan mama sendiri, haha* Nyokap gue emang cinta beneer ama sastra en bahasa, that's why I know that I got it from my momma! Hihii.. She was the best teacher, karena, sama kayak gue, kita berdua ga suka kalo orang laen itu salah ngomong. Bukan berarti mau sombong ato sok paling tau, tapi lebih karena kita gereget aja dengernyaa, heheheh.. Nyokap sering bilang, "Mama paling ga suka deh kalo denger orang ngomong feminim, yang bener tuh feminin." Hahaha.. Makanya gue dari sejak itu ga pernah ngomong feminim, melainkan feminin :D Gue jadi tau deh, yang mana yang bener yang mana yang salah.


Emang siih, kesalahan-kesalahan semacam itu keliatannya ga penting, abisss, udah mendarah daging dari dulu sampe sekarang, sih! Semua orang juga taunya kayak gitu. Kalo kita beda, malah kitanya yang keliatan aneh ato salah, hehe.. Tapiii, sebenernyaa, kalian prihatin ga siih? Apa gue-nya aja yang lebay yaa? Hahahaha.. Emang bawaan dari lahir sih. Dulu, waktu baru belajar Bahasa Mandarin, tau gimana ngomong Mandarin yang baik dan benar alias 标准(biaozhun), gue seriiiingggg banget ngeritik bonyok ato sesepuh-sesepuh kalo denger mereka ngomong Mandarin. As we know, Mandarin orang Indo - at least Surabaya, particularly - tuh jelek bangett kan, salah-salah gituu.. Jadi dehh mereka bahan kritikan gue, ahha.. Padahal gue masih kecil, dibandingin ama mereka yang lancar bener ngomong Mandarin. Bukan grammar ato vocab-nya yang gue masalahin - kalo ngomongin grammar ato vocab mah, ampuuun dehh ngelawan mereka -, yang gue masalahin tuh pronunciationnya, hehehe.. Dan itu kebawa ampe sekarang. Kalo ada orang yang ngomongnya salah, gue otomatis ngebenerin. Sekali lagi, perlu ditekankan yaa pembaca sekalian, bukan bermaksud sok paling pinter, cuman, gereget ajaah, hehehhe.. Kalo sekarang sih lebih ke karena gue mau ngingetin diri gue sendiri yang bener tuh ngomongnya kayak gimana, jadi sekarang ngebenerinnya lebih sering di dalem hati aja, agar tidak menimbulkan prahara, HA HA HA..


Oke dehhh, sekian sharing "singkat" dari gue - biasaaa, kalo udah nulis ato ngobrol, suka keterusaaan, wkwkwkwkk.


Semoga bermanfaat en maaf yaa kalo ada salah kata yang tidak berkenan dan menyinggung hati para pembaca tercinta sekalian, hehehehehehe.. Ga ada maksuuud, beneeeerrr dehh! Okaaayy! ;)
