Haha. The Business Risk Management mid-term is today.
I had thought it was at 8:30 AM. Buuuuuuutt, it turned out that it will start at 1:30 PM!!!
Yes, I am MESSED UP.
Haha. The thing is, my friend Echie and I were already at campus since 8AM.
Okay WE are MESSED UP.
Haha anyways so now we're BROWSING. And not studying at ALL hahahaha. :D
Hehe I'm back again, doing one of those blogrolls.
It's mid-term and Business Risk Management is tomorrow.
I was reading the materials last night when I got bored and went to sleep.
And then I had this crazy dream.
I couldn't really remember what exactly happened but this is the main idea...
So I was in Building A, now called the Nathanael Iskandar building, and I was looking at the SPA bulletin board. It said that the organization was gonna hold a free, medical check up visit to a lot of these doctors or something I couldn't quite remember.
After that, a bunch of management students were sitting in front of the bulletin board asked me when I approached whether they could get the free check up also. I said yes, seeing that it didn't actually say that only accounting students could participate. [Note: SPA is an accounting students organization]
And among those guys sitting in front of the board was this guy whom I've had a crush on a long time ago haha. ;)
Anywaaaayss, so we went on the visit.
I got separated from the group because I strayed into this bakery-coffee shop and had a real good time looking at richly colorful buildings in the area, which doesn't exist in real life mind you.
So I went round and round for some time, enjoying myself and even bumped into Ahmad Albar, the frontman of the legendary Indonesian rock band God Bless, no not the LL Cool J album.
At last I found where the others were but I had to cross this little moat or something--there was no bridge--and I was afraid that I was gonna fall into it. Across the moat, the land was squishy and muddy either so I was afraid I was gonna slip and fall if I jump.
[This is a dream people, I know that the Ahmad Albar and the moat don't make sense.]
The "good thing" was that there was this pillar that we could actually use to propel us for the jump. But I was too scared as the moat was pretty wide. Anyhow, people were encouraging me from the other side--imagine sports movies when it was the last minute of the game and the audience were doing the slow clap for the main lead(s).
And then the guy that I told you before, the one I had a crush on, reached out his hand to me, and told me to hold his hand.
"Jump," he said encouragingly with the CUTEST smile ever on his face. I was melting hehe.
And so I jumped and he caught me with his arms around my hips!
And then with the slightest gesture he kissed my cheek haha!
I woke up smiling. Heck I'm still smiling now! ;)
I remembered having those almost-waking-up-but-still-kinda-asleep moments thinking to myself, "Did he really kiss me?!!! DID HE REALLY?!!"
Hehe yes he did. :-*
I wear glasses. And after my favorite pair of glasses, half-frame and shocking lime green, went missing/got stolen Idk, I decided to wear contact lenses.
After wearing ordinary clear ones, I went crazy for about three months and wore purple contact lenses, which--as oddly as it may sound--suited me[!] Shocking, I know.
Now I'm wearing light brown, which people said made me look like a bule, the Bahasa Indonesia equivalent of gringa.
But lately wearing contact lenses bore me. It took too much time and I started to wear my old glasses, a silver square one with snakeskin for the handles.
The things is, one of those little plastic thingies that was supposed to hold up your nose went missing. And now I want a new one. Like the one in the pic posted above. :D
Don't you think it looks absolutely cute?
Well if you don't, I still do anyways. ;) Hehe.
I've been meaning to post this for some time now. :D
Last time I posted that I was gonna have the "Oh Min Ji" hair, but then I realized that the curls were too intricate and it'd have to wait some time for my hair to grow out appropriately for the style to work.
I've been using this shampoo that was supposed to make your hair grow fast and pretty, but still it'd take time.
Anywaaaaaaaaayyss, my hair's long enough for the Anne Hathaway Long Bob!!! Haha I made that name up. I love love LOVE it! As soon as I saw it I googled it and printed the pic haha jk.
The only question is really, when will I have time to go to the salon? ;)
Hehe. So an Aikido dojo recently opened not far from my house. And I'm interested in joining in!
I would actually love to join a Pencak Silat school of martial arts instead--in fact I've wanted to join one since I was in elementary school, but it's too far away. :'(
I'm starting April 1st!!!
SUPER EXCITED!!! :D
I LOVE Saturdays and Sundays!!!
But why these particular days, you might ask!? It's because of the FOOD, people!!!
So today my mom and dad cooked:
1. Nasi merah, or red rice in English.
Nasi merah is a variant of the regular rice. It's high in fiber yet low in carbs. So it's good for you who wish to go on a low-carb diet. :)
2. Sayur Asem
A traditional Indonesian vegetable soup, with a slight sour yet sweet taste. Its ingredients include groundnuts, melinjo (Latin name: gnetum gnemon), belimbing wuluh (Latin name: Averrhoa bilimbi), labu siam (Latin name: sechium edule, chayote/christophine in English), yardlong beans, tamarinds, and corns.
3. And then Pepes Ayam Madu.
This one is a weird one. Normally people have either a Pepes Ayam,
which is chicken marinated with ground spices, seasonings, lemon basils, tomatoes, and chilis, wrapped in banana leaves and then grilled, or an Ayam Madu,
which is Baked Chicken with Honey.
So you combine the two and basically what you get is amazing!!! ;)
I was gonna post pics but the food was so enticing that I dug in at once haha. :D
Bon apetit! : d
Love her shirt! :D
I think I'm gonna make myself one...
The only thing is I can't... Because it's MID-TERM!!! :(
And then I really like her jacket (see below). I think I saw one in N.y.L.a. the other day... Oh man why do I have to have mid terms!!! Or any kind of exams actually. ;)
Plus I like the purple tights/stockings... And I know there's one for Rp30,000 at ITC Depok!
Man, speaking of Depok I just remembered mid-term again... :'(
I think everybody knows by now my obsession with floral patterns.

I woke up probably at 4 this morning.
I didn't want to sleep but I wasn't keen on getting up either.
And so I just laid there on my bed with my eyes closed.
My mind kept playing over and over again the scenes that Hasbi described to me on his text messages. I felt horrible, like I'm some sort of mean monster. But then the self-justification started kicking in. That he wasn't all that good either.
Why didn't he tell me that he was gonna have a class presentation? Why did he tell me that his class finished at 4 while it really finished at 5? When I called him, if the class presentation was indeed sudden as he said it was, why didn't he tell me that he couldn't make it at 4 because he has that presentation? Why did he insist on making me come to "sit in" his class, never telling me that he actually wanted me to watch him do the presentation, but made it seem like it would be just easier to get to my car?
Why didn't he tell me what he was gonna do when we went to FH to give Dila back her car? Why didn't he tell me he was gonna park Dila's car, instead of making me do rounds around the parking lot on mine? Why didn't he tell me how he was gonna give Dila back her keys? I had no idea what he was gonna do so I was just following him around in my car.
When we got in the car, didn't he get it that I couldn't drive while holding hands or being hugged or stuff like that!? And I just hate it how he compared me and the way that I drive to himself. Go drive yourself home if you don't like it. Why didn't he get it that we've gotten out of campus at 5-something PM so we're gonna arrive at his house about an hour or so later, and what time would I get home? Didn't he get it that I would have to drive home alone and in the dark too?
He knew how dark the road to my house is! He knew it but he wouldn't understand it. I believe I have every right to be pissed because of his disorganization and lack of information-sharing I had to go home late when I could be enjoying myself at home, doing my homework early so I wouldn't be rushed and sneaking in classes doing my homework, I could watch the American Idol results show in peace, etc etc. He knew that I have SPM today, and that the homework was always a burden! He knew that every week I couldn't finish my hw on time because of how much problems imposed by the homework. I hated it I hated it I hated it and I hated him especially for this.
And before I knew it, we broke up again without having even gotten back together. Dammit.

What really got me hooked on Matt Giraud:
I want the skirt!
Must go to Senen. Must convince Echie to go after Mid-Term!
They had lots of pocket watches in Singapore. And they were cheap too. I knew I shoulda bought it!
Have you ever cried when watching a movie? What was the first movie that you cried to? Mine was the 1994 movie Grandpa's Love (Zu Sun Qing). I watched it on TV when I was in elementary school or so, I forgot what grade.
I cried my eyes out when I watched the movie and even woke my mom up by my crying hehe.
The movie starred Hao Shaowen, otherwise known as Bo Bo Ho, a very famous child actor at the time in Shaolin movies as the comic relief. The other leads were Jimmy Lin as Hao Shaowen's older brother and Lang Xiong as the grandpa.
Jiang Xing Jian (Jimmy) and his 4 year old brother Xing Kang (Hao Shao Wen), whose parents died in a plane crash, lived with their grandpa, who’s the chairman of a big company. Grandpa expected the 17 year old Ah Jian to be a good example for Ah Kang, but whenever Ah Kang got into trouble, grandpa would blame Ah Jian. This made Ah Jian felt that grandpa seems to favour his younger brother more and doesn't try to understand his feelings.
Soon, it's grandpa's birthday and Ah Jian was preparing to go out and buy a gift for him but Ah Kang, seeing his brother leaving with his bicycle, pester him to bring him along. Ah Jian refused but Ah Kang made a nuisance of himself and wouldn't stop crying unless he agrees to bring him. Ah Jian had no choice but to agree.
While Ah Jian was looking around at all the gifts, Ah Kang followed a group of children who ran past and later got lost. Ah Jian came out and found Ah Kang missing, made a frantic search. When he was at a total despair, Ah Kang finally found him and it was a touching reunion.
After getting the gift, they had to rush home before grandpa does. Ah Jian with Ah Kang on their bicycle held on a moving vehicle so that it'll be faster to reach home. However, grandpa's car was just behind them and had caught sight of them. Grandpa was fuming mad with Ah Jian for endangering he and his brother. But Ah Kang told grandpa that brother had specially got him a gift, till then did he cool down.
Advised by their uncle, grandpa decided to give Ah Jian another chance, and offered to bring him to Hong Kong for a business trip. Ah Jian was very happy about the friendship offered by grandpa. One day, however, Ah Jian found a video that had their parents but Ah Kang suddenly burst into the room. He tried to stop his little brother from watching the tape but he snatched the remote control from Ah Jian and accidentally erased the video tape that had their parents’ clips. Ah Jian went to all the video shops to find a way to recover the clips but it was impossible. He then went to a pub and got himself drunk.
When Grandpa saw him returning home drunk, he was very upset, and as a punishment to Ah Jian, he went on to Hong Kong on his own. Feeling both depressed and a sense of desperation. Ah Jian went to climb a tree which is just above the waterfall to relieve his frustrations, but to his surprise, Ah Kang followed him there. Ah Kang suddenly fell and encountered a snake. Fearing for his little brother’s safety, he tried to climb back to the bank to reach his brother but one of his hands slipped and he plunged down.....

Hehe charm bracelets! What girl doesn't like them?
Anyways I, along with my mom and my sisters, made charm bracelets last night! Eight of them!!! I was gonna post the pictures but I'm not exactly a genius at photography... Hehe. I keep getting a shadow over the bracelets that I was gonna take pictures of.
2 of the bracelets I made for myself, and 2 other for each of my sisters! The rest we're gonna sell. And at a very affordable price too! ;) If you go to the mall and ask for a charm bracelet, the shopkeeper would probably propose some incredulous prices; hundreds of thousands of rupiahs!!! Even when you go to Citos for the Ladies' Day bazaar and ask for a charm bracelet they would probably price it at about 200-300 thousand rupiahs for one.
My charm bracelets have the same, if not better quality, than that sold at Citos and whatnots, but at less than half the price!!! :D :D :D
I am excited! Can't wait to bring them to school!!! ;)

People keep posting these personality tests thingy on facebook. And so I got curious and tried some of them. So I tried this site, DOUBUTSU URANAI.
DOUBUTSU URANAI uses the date of birth, based on the Four Pillars of Destiny, that breaks down the human characteristics into 12 different kinds of animals. I found this one pretty accurate.
I actually put in my name 4 times! And it all came out Gold Lion. :D
Not everybody can wear headbands. I'm one of those people. I don't know what's exactly wrong but in my opinion, my hair just doesn't "support" the wearing of the headbands LOL. But still, LOVE LOVE LOVE Milla Jovovich's headband shown above.
Emma Roberts' is also quite simple and classy and quite wearable to most, if not all, occassions. :D
And then there's Mischa who quite helped popularize the headband. :)
