Positive and Negative

Hello people and my abandoned blog. I'm so so so sorry for disappear for quite some time. I miss blogging so much, and there's so many things to share here, but time is the main problem. Could hardly find time to do it, since I'm working. It has been 2 weeks for me working as an accountant-sigh-Well, I'm sigh-ing not because I am not grateful with the job, but you know why. Even I don't really like being an accountant, I still grateful to had a real job, finally. It's tiring but well, I quite enjoyed it, maybe it's because I was stuck in boredom for quite some time, so it feels great to finally working, or well, it's maybe because I am newbie, so there's not much I can do at the moment, yet. I don't know how it will be after I work there for a month or so. With "not too many" things to do, already makes me so busy, so we'll see. But yeah, it feels good to be able to do something "useful" with my time and making some cash out of it.

There are positive things and negative things too, regarding to this working stuff. Let's talk about the positive first. I sleep earlier and wake earlier too. Good stuffs, eh? Wait until you hear the next thing, and think a-gain. I think I had insomnia, you already knew that, righ? I usually went to bed around 1, 2, 3 etc etc in the morning, but 10 or 11 since I'm working, then I woke earlier, like too early to be true. I always woke around 1.30 or 2 or 3 am and I'll stay awake till 5 then off to bath. This panda eye is getting darker day by day :( And you know, the worst thing is, so, we had new neighbor-the room next to mine is occupied now, and it has been occupied like 3 weeks or so-and let me tell you, this neighbor is no ordinary neighbor. It's super duper annoying neighbor, kind of a-neighbour-from-hell. Seriously. She couldn't stop singing all day long and turn her radio/music on to its max volume. How annoying!

Can you imagine, on a beautiful Saturday morning when you really really need to sleep more or let's say you need your quality sleep, no need to wake "too early"-actually I couldn't sleep a little later than before because I used to go to swimming in the morning with my house mates, so yeah, I do really need an extra one to two hours in my sleep time but she ruined those extra hours!-She used to wake around 4 or 5 am then she turned her music and started to singing like a professional-BATHROOM-singer! Then she could get in and out from her room over and over again and slammed the door shut as she pleased, like no one else stay in this little house and they're all still sleeping or half awake, just like me. Like it or not, I have to wake up! Man!!It's Saturday and I woke at 4 or 5 in the morning?!? Then I have to prepare at 6 and go swimming at 7 am!! You've got to be kidding me! At least I could still be sleeping till 6 am!! Why don't you just kill me right away! I have an alarm clock that no need to be adjusted but will ring and call you to wake up at 4 or 5 am, everyday, interesting? Let me know if you need one, I'll send it for free!

Come on, dude!! Where's your good manners? Geez!! You're not staying here ALONE. There are times when I feel like rushing out and bang on her door and shout at her to shut her f*ckin mouth. But I won't do that. I am not willing to put such a big effort to deal with people that has no brain at all. Simply because it's useless and I am not here to get enemies. Silently I pray, hopefully God will hear my prayer and send some extra brains for her to think! How nice, I am, right? :p

Okay, another positive things is, it feels like back to school again, which is good feeling to me. One of my favorite moments in life is high school moment, and now I feel like having it again, how cool is that, right? :) I woke early, said my morning prayer, went to bath, had some breakie then walked to bus station. What a healthy life. I feel so blessed to be able to do such routines. On the other hand, the negative side are, I don't like when it's about to go-home-time, they would tell me to stay a little later. I hate working overtime. I don't like it, even if they double pay you for that-which unfortunately, not in this company-It has nothing to do with the money or me being lazy. I just found out that nothing is good coming from a tired mind and body. To me working overtime is useless, moreover if you're not willing to do it at all. It's not productive at all.

I just don't get it why some companies always tell their employees to work overtime. That's why I prefer working at banking industries. The job descriptions are clear, you only do your job and no need to worry about other things. Dressed and work neatly, and most important, on-time working hours. Some of these people in the office, talking, eating, joking, chatting, do this and that-well, it's okay, as long as you keep your job's done. I have to admit, I did these too, sometimes, but mostly I did it when I have no more works to do, or when I got bored-while they're working then they took overtime because their job hasn't finished yet and for overtime payment sake and people would look at them that they're diligently working and very loyal to the company and to their job. SIGH. Why people are so fake? I prefer to skip my lunch time to get the job finished instead of working overtime. Sometimes I think some companies are too stupid to let their employees to work overtime. They have to spend extra cash for the work that actually could be done in office-hour but people are corrupting the time. I, myself, prefer to bring my work home and but of course I will still get the extra payment for that rather than spending hours at the office till it's late. Maybe it's simply because I am a woman and I haven't got any car, yet, but taking public transportation and it's uncomfortable for me and it simply not safe for a girl to come home late, especially here, in Jakarta. I think working overtime is okay as long as you've been working that hard but still there are so many things need to be done right away, and the office-hours are just not enough. That's what inside my head, this is personal opinion, so please, don't argue me.

LOL!! This what people mostly do, but not me, of course :)

Another positive and negative effect at the same time is all about well dressed for work. I love working outfits. Like seriously like it. If it's okay, I'd love to dressed like that for not only at work. :) The positive is, I love the outfits, it makes me even more enthusiasm in the morning to go to work. The negative side is, I need to renew my wardrobe as I do not have many work outfits, so, I went shopping and this is bad. LOL :p
Shopping, shopping and shopping will definitely burn a BIG hole on my pocket! SIGH Not good, not good.

Please remind me to do saving! Or seriously I'll get broke to the bones! :(

Well, save the other stories for next time. I'm leaving now. Ciao~

Quick Post!

Not much I can say.. I'm so damn busy and tired. Don't have many times to hanging around here anymore. I miss that moment. I miss my daily routines. I miss reading. I miss wake up one day on a very late afternoon. I simply miss everything... Sigh.

I'm out~

P.S. I'll upload pics later on, as I can't upload anything from iPhone =\

Letting go is the best way to hold on.

Happy iOS5 day, everyone!

 My JB-ed iPhone Homescreen with iOS 4.3.1 :)

I should blog about this tomorrow morning, right after I install the iOS 5, to give you some reviews about it, but yeah, currently, I don't know what to do anymore beside waiting, waiting and waiting for the whole day for this iOS. I'm currently reading Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, but it seems like I can't concentrate, so yeah, I put it down and decide to blogging.

To be honest, until this moment, I'm still unsure whether I should upgrade it right away or not. I might get new awesome features and yet loosing all of my pirated apps and tweaks, since it's currently unjailbreakable-or let's say, tethered JB-But yeah, I guess, I can't wait for any longer anymore. :)

Anyway, it gave me headache, every time I saw my iTunes. I don't know what the hell is wrong with it, but until now, I can't access to iTunes store. It always showed a white blank page. SIGH. I've un-installed and re-installed it, loosing everything, but it stays the same. Can't opened iTunes store, can't backup anything etc etc. I have no ideaaaaaa at all. A friend of mine suggesting me to upgrade my laptop, which is means, I have to re-formatted it. Hoahhh!! I don't know what to do. Let's just wait for the freaking iOS 5 out first and we'll see if I am be able to download and install it to my phone.

Okay, let's get out of here and waiting again. iOS 5 is around the corner. It will be arrived in any minutes now.

This is way too late, but I've just finished watched this movie. It's about an underwater cave diving team experiences a life-threatening crisis during an expedition to the unexplored and least accessible cave system in the world. A friend of mine said that it's based on true story. Well, the movie was okay, but I'm here not suggesting you guys to watch it or give a good or bad opinion about it. It's just because couple hours ago before I watched this movie, my house mate was telling her 3 days trip as backpackers with her boyfriend. Such a great experience, she said. That's why I am so excited and I came up with this post. Anyway, we decided to make plan to hiking to mountains, rafting and doing others adventures! I just can't wait to make it to reality. I love doing such things, you know, but haven't got chances to do that. And of course, old story, permission not granted. SIGH.

But you know, mum and dad, we've grown up a bit, I suppose, so, we can take care of ourselves. Don't worry too much, okay. I will still let you guys know, when I'll be going to do such things, with or with your permission of course. :D Hopefully permission granted and we can make it in the near future, as for now, I still have pretty much free time. Finger crossed.

Some stories are true that never happened. ---Elie Weisel

The Librarian

This definitely my favorite song. It will become my all-time-favorite songs ever. Since I downloaded it three days ago, I just can't stop listening to it. I put it on repeat, on iTunes, iPod, everywhere!. Do you remember when visited my blog, there's a BG music there. Now that I've put it down and didn't write the code somewhere else as back up, I'm not so sure if I can add a BG music on my blog again. I'll try to browse around and figure something out.



I know the distance it takes to sail around the world
I've done it many times on seas of  Van Gogh green
and every night with certainty the stars
descend around the hull like fireflies
it's no surprise I'm here tonight
holding out hope for a change in the tide

Painted windows on the skyline
sail me off this empty island
I'll be home before you know it
I'll be home before you know I'm gone

I know the secret waves
that lap around the world
the mermaids sing of them
as they brush their hair with coral
where every lighthouse sends a beam like
Roman column to a city down below

And this I know
to plunge down and breath
is more than possible if you believe

Painted windows on the skyline
sail me off this empty island
I'll be home before you know me it
I'll be home before you know I'm gone


I know the distance it takes to sail around the world
I've done it many times behind my knotted desk
in quite service too

the stories I collect
until it's time to close
and go home for the night
without the pirates without the sirens
without the love notes in bottles at sea
waiting for someone
waiting for someone, like me

Painted windows on the skyline
sail me off this empty island
I'll be home before you know it
I'll be home before you know I'm gone

UPDATE: I decided to put MixPod player on my blog, because I'm giving up in finding the HTML code for invisible background music for blogger, so yeah, this will do. The track is taken from YouTube, so the buffering is quite fast. Moreover, with this MixPod player, you guys can have a full control to the song. Feel free play/pause/stop it, if you find this song is annoying while reading my blog. :) Let me know if you are having issue with playing/stopping the song.

UPDATE 11.52 AM: I'm currently updating the lyric. The lyric that I found and copied here is sucks. Too many typo. Now I'm listening to the song over and over again and correcting the words. :) Let me know if I misheard them. :)

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. ---Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

Not an Ordinary Day.

Hello my abandon blog! How are you? I should update this blog often. As someone very dear to me said that this blog I have it as my diary, isn't it supposed to be filled everyday? So true. But my mood easily changed from time to time and it's hard to keep back on track, but I'll try my best to update it everyday. Just pray for me.

I had great times within these few days. So many things happened. Good and bad of course. But I don't feel like sharing it here. I saved it all for myself, it was too sweet and too sour to be true, sorry. All I can say, it's only another day to be remembered. Today, I feel so blue. Nothing's bad happened, don't worry. But "something" really happening at the moment. Something's wrong inside me. Can't really explain what happened to me today and yesterday. I cried a lot since last night. I feel blue. Not in a good mood and I'm literally sick. Got a massive headache in the morning followed by stomachache then in the afternoon, gastric. I lost my appetite and I feel like I am not who I really am. That's enough said.

Currently, it rained heavily outside-I hate it!-and me with a very bad bad mood, sitting there on my comfy bed on my favorite corner, with iPhone on hand typing this line would bring no good at all. So I'm leaving now. I don't feel like blogging at all, but I need to update things here so this is it.

Hopefully I'm getting better tomorrow. Pray for me, will you.

P.S. I miss everyone dear to me. I miss home, family, friends, all of them and most important, you and you. Rain surely bring no good to me! I don't even know what am I typing and what am I thinking right now.

I'm out~

P.S.S To my dear friend, if you read this line, Still remember Johnny Depp's quote that you've told me this evening? Now I don't even know which one is the 1st and which one is the 2nd.

When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time. Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs? ---G.K. Chesterton

A Day Worth Remembering

Today, is a happy yet the sad day. This morning while Indonesia time and date was already 6th October, my mothly anniversary, which is still 5th October in Cupertino, California, one of the most innovative man in the world died. He's my hero and my inspiration. The man who changed the world and really make this world to be a better place to live and to enjoy with his masterpiece gadgets, which are known as the most innovative and awesome gadgets ever invented! He is of course Steven Paul Jobs, a.k.a Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple Inc. Steve Jobs, the mastermind behind Apple's iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac and iTunes, has died "peacefully," surrounded by his family members at the age of 56.

It's just a day after they announced the iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S. Maybe he's already knew it's coming, that's why they've chosen 4th October to announced it.

Anyway, I have no more words to say. I've had enough split everything out to my twitter account this morning. This blog post is dedicated to him. May he Rest In Peace and hopefully, Apple will keep shinning even without Steve. I know he is watching from up there, and please, send all your creativity, imagination, brilliance, passion and energy as well as your genius ideas to the people in the company, so they can run the company well and create a good stuffs out of it.

My deepest condolences goes for you and your family.

P.S. Now, I'm thinking to have iPhone 4S for Jobs' sake. :D

Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. ---Steve Jobs

Sleeping Draught

As my promise, the next post will be all about Pottermore. So, have you ever brewed any potion on Pottermore, before? How it was? Well, I've brewed couple times and sometimes I succeed while sometimes I failed because of the site error. Actually it's not too difficult brewing the potion, especially when you've tried couple times. But as you know, the site is in beta so there are too many bugs and errors that made me failed in making potion, because sometimes the ingredients can't be picked and sometimes the site is responding too slow, that caused there's a couple seconds delay when you grabbed some of the ingredients that would make you ran out of time then the potion failed.

Well, since starting yesterday, I've always succeed in making potions-Thanked God-then, I'd love to share some tips and tricks and of course, the ingredients and the recipes. As for me, when I am making these potions, I read all the steps carefully, read them again and again till I memorized it and can make it without even read the instructions anymore. LOL. Yeah, my house-mate said that I was like memorizing and studying like it was a real subject and like I'm going to have a potion exam tomorrow! :p

Silly isn't it? But yeah, I found that it was fun. It's like you're really a students of Hogwarts and Prof. Snape is going to give you detention or take your house points away from you-well, literally, it is, if you melted your cauldron, it will costs you lots of Galleons and House Points for sure!-if you failed. Okay, no more talking, here's the first tips for you, you need practice, practice and practice before you can really mastered them. The more you give it a try, the easier for you to remember all the steps and the bigger the chance of successfully making the potions. Here's homework for you. Read this carefully and memorize it! :p This is Sleeping Draught Recipe. Good Luck! :D

Hello October!

Can you believe that September is gone? Yeah! it's time to wake you guys up because September has just ended. Today, I have to make a quick recap of my September, not the recap of the stories, but well, September has been a great month to me and I hope October will be even greater.

I am so excited about this month. Why? Because there will be so many good things that will happen in this month. Let's say, iOS 5 and iPhone 5. These two are more than enough to satisfy me at the moment, and psstt... many more good things to come, I can't spoil the fun by telling you what are those, just yet. Wait and see. This is only the beginning. :)

Well, I should finish this October's greetings here. As the following thread(s) that I'll post in couple minutes ahead are all about Pottermore. Have a great October everyone and enjoyyyyyy :D

Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must. ---Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
