How was Bandung?
Pretty nice actually, except for the part when I missed home so much;p
I only spent 2 nights there yet it felt really nice to step away for a while from my 'ordinary' life in Jakarta hehe
Bandung was not as crowded as last year *according to my friend's boyfriend*
but hey almost everywhere I went, there're cars with "B" sign di plat mobil nya..
Bahkan bokap gue ketemu ama temen2 nya gitu yang kebetulan nginep di hotel yang sama.
Ckck orang Jakarta emank hehe *LOL*

You know what I always do when I've got nothing else to do?
I fill out the questionnaire in Friendster Bulletin Board.
Just for fun..
but it does really help me to learn things about people..and about me.
Everytime I fill out a questionnaire, I always learn something new.
What was your dream when I was a child? Where would I be 5 years from now.. and so on
A couple of days ago, as I was reading The Curious Incident of the dog in the night-time,

I found this line:
"Tapi dalam kehidupan kau harus mengambil banyak keputusan dan kalau kau tidak mengambil keputusan maka kau takkan berbuat apa2 karena kau menghabiskan seluruh waktumu untuk memilih di antara sekian banyak hal yang bisa kau lakukan. Jadi ada baiknya kalau kau mempunyai alasan untuk membenci suatu hal dan menyukai hal lainnya. Ini seperti berada di restoran kalau sesekali Ayah mengajakku ke Berni Inn dan kau membaca menu dan kau harus memilih apa yang mau kau pesan. Tapi kau tidak tahu apakah kau akan suka sesuatu karena kau belum pernah mencicipinya, jadi
sebaiknya kau mempunyai makanan kesukaan dan kau pilih makanan itu, dan kau mempunyai makanan yang tidak kau suka maka kau tidak pilih makanan itu, dan kemudian semuanya jadi mudah"

Ngena banget...
Because once I encounter questions such as
2 songs you listen the most, 2 favorite foods, etc
I just found those kind of questions difficult to answer.
Not that I don't have the answer to that..
I have so many answer to that kind of question, till I don't know which I like the most..
Why am I writing this anyway?
Hehe I don't just came through my mind the other night..

Here are the assignments that unfortunatelly we have to work on;p

Monday, 22 November 2004 - HCI Paper # 5 and 6
Tuesday, 23 November 2004 - TPT Grammar
Wednesday, 24 November 2004 - Project Orientation (HCI)
Thursday, 25 November 2004 - ISPM HW#7 page 175

Suatu hari, Plato bertanya kepada gurunya (Socrates), Apa itu cinta? Bagaimana saya
bisa menemukannya?
Gurunya menjawab:"Ada ladang gandum yang luas di depan sana. Berjalanlah, tetapi jangan mundur kembali, kemudian ambillah satu buah ranting. Jika kamu menemukan ranting yang kamu anggap paling menakjubkan, artinya kamu telah menemukan cinta."
Plato kemudian berjalan, tidak berapa lama kemudian ia kembali dengan tangan kosong
tanpa membawa apapun.
Gurunya bertanya," Mengapa kamu tidak membawa satu ranting pun?"
Plato menjawab,"Aku hanya boleh membawa satu saja dan saat berjalan tidak boleh munduk kembali (berbalik). Sebenarnya aku telah menemukan yang paling menakjubkan, tapi aku tidak tahu apakah ada yang lebih menakjubkan lagi di depan sana, jadi ranting tersebut tidak kuambil. Setelah aku melanjutkan perjalanan, baru aku sadar
bahwa ranting-ranting yang kutemukan kemudian tidak sebagus ranting yang tadi, jadi akhirnya tak sebatang ranting pun yang kuambil."
Guru menjawab, 'Itulah yang dimaksud dengan cinta.'

Beberapa hari kemudian, Plato kembali bertanya kepada gurunya, ";Apa itu perkawinan?
Bagaimana saya bisa menemukannya?";
Gurunya menjawab, "Ada hutan yang subur di depan sana. Berjalanlah tanpa boleh mundur kembali (menoleh) dan kamu hanya boleh menebang satu pohon saja. Jika kamu menemukan pohon yang paling tinggi, tebanglah. Dengan begitu artinya kamu telah menemukan apa itu perkawinan.";
Plato kemudian berjalan dan tidak berapa lama kemudian ia kembali dengan membwa
sebuah pohon.
Pohon tersebut bukanlah pohon yang tinggi. Pohon itu biasa-biasa saja.

Gurunya bertanya, "Mengapa kamu memotong pohon yang seperti itu?";
Plato menjawab, ";Berdasarkan pengalamanku sebelumnya, setelah menjelajah hampir
setengah hutan, ternyata aku kembali dengan tangan kosong. Jadi pada kesempatan ini, aku lihat pohon ini dan kurasa tidak terlalu buruk. Jadi kuputuskan untuk
menebangnya dan membawanya ke sini. Aku tidak mau kehilangan kesempatan untuk
Gurunya menjawab,"Itulah yang dimaksud dengan perkawinan."

Cinta itu semakin dicari, semakin tidak ditemukan.
Cinta adanya di dalam lubuk hati, ketika kita dapat menahan keinginan dan harapan
yang lebih. Ketika pengharapan dan keinginan berlebihan akan cinta, maka yang didapat adalah kehampaan.
Tak ada satupun yang didapat serta tidak dapat dimundurkan kembali. Waktu dan
masa tidak dapat diputar mundur. Terima cinta apa adanya.
Perkawinan adalah kelanjutan dari cinta.
Perkawinan merupakan proses mendapatkan kesempatan. Ketika kau mencari yang
terbaik diantara pilihan yang ada, maka kau akan mengurangi kesempatan untuk
Ketika kesempurnaan ingin kau dapatkan, maka sia-sialah waktumu untuk mendapatkan
perkawinan itu.
Karena kesempurnaan itu hampa adanya

Gue dapet dari bulletin board frenster nich..Cukup bagus menurut gue hehe eniwei, this is my last post before pegi ke puncak 3 jam lagi;p Nite everyone..
Saatnya ku berkata mungkin yang terakhir kalinya.
Sudahlah lepaskan semua..
Ku yakin inilah waktunya.
Mungkin saja kau bukan yang dulu lagi,
mungkin saja rasa itu telah pergi..

Dan mungkin bila nanti kita kan bertemu lagi,
satu pintaku jangan kau coba tanyakan kembali
rasa yang kutinggal mati seperti hari kemarin saat semua di sini.

Dan bila hatimu termenung,
menghindari mimpi2mu..
Membuka hatimu yang dulu, cerita saat bersamaku.
Mungkin saja kau bukan yang dulu lagi,
mungkin saja rasa itu telath pergi..

Dan mungkin bila nanti kita kan bertemu lagi,
satu pintaku jangan kau coba tanyakan kembali
rasa yang kutinggal mati seperti hari kemarin saat semua di sini.
Tak usah kau tanyakan lagi, simpan untukmu sendiri
Semua sesal yang kau cari, semua rasa yang kau beri..
~Peterpan : Mungkin Nanti~

I once believe that this person is my love..
The one whom I should wait for..
THe thing is, no matter where I went..or how I tried myself to give my heart to other man,
I always came back to him..
Just when I started to forget about him, there he was..coming back to my life again.
It went on for uuhhmm about 4 years..
Right now, I still cannot decide where I should move on..
It feels like there's something hanging between us.
Could it be that it was the reason why I couldn't move on for so long?
To be honest, I'm starting to feel tired.
For the time being, I would like to dedicate that song for that particular person..

Noo..don't mis-intepret the subtitle hehe..
I'm not in desperate for love..
Well, I'm not in desperate for a date haha not yet;p

This is the story about 4 girl in the middle of traffic jam..
The time was 16.30 WIB in my lovely purple Kijang;p
Me and the other 3 girl were talking about girl stuff..
Well, you know what girls usually talk about;p
DUring the conversation I was asked so many question that finally led us to these question:
"Is there still exist such thing called pure love? What is pure love?"
Haha you know what, the other 3 girls..They are from the debate team.
Just imagine how the discussion going on..
One of them came up with the idea that "Pure love is the kind of love that exist by nature..It's unconditional thus it offers no pain.."
And the other said "Love comes in the same packet as pain. No pain no gain.."
It goes on and on..
I myself, cannot define what is love..apalagi pure love..
but hey, it really hit me hard.
Especially after watching The Notebook.
I keep on questioning my self the existence of that kind of love..
Blessed them who've been given the opportunity to feel that.
What do you think about that?

I'm going to Bandung in about 6 hours from now..
So, this blog is going to be abandonned for a few days.
Have a nice holiday for everyone..
Met lebaran juga buat yang ngerayain nya..
Minal Aidin..
Mohon maaf lahir dan batin:)
*Am I gonna survive 2 nights without computer?* lol haha
For one of my friend who's going through a big change in his life..
Don't give up now.
What you need is some more time..
Not the time to heal the pain..Time won't heal the pain
but time to get use to your current condition.
time to adjust yourself, to learn about new things.
Eventually, life will go on...
well, just remember that we will always be here for you..OK

There are certain milestones in our lives that give us the opportunity to reflect on where we've been and to look ahead to where we're going. If you're lucky, the looking ahead is as much fun as the looking back
But not everyone is lucky.

We're taught to remember only the significant moments, the rites of passage. In truth, the smallest steps that get us to these momentous occasions are just as significant. Looking back, we see it's not just the high points, but the low points that also define who we are and who we will become.

It's holiday alreadyy..*Pyuh*
You know what's funny about this holiday for me?
I'm feeling lost
Hehe I think I'm used to the "stressfull" days..
You know, those 'good old days' when I had to finish my paper, study for my exam..
Oh my...what's gotten into me *lol*

Anyway, Met Puasa buat yang ngejalanin nya..
Happy holiday for alll:)

As always, I'd never forget to spoil a little about the new books that I bought couple of days ago..and of course a new movie that's played in the cinema now.

by Mark Haddon
*the indonesian translation: Insiden Anjing di Tengah Malam yang Bikin Penasaran*
What a weird translation huh ;p
Why did I bought this book?
Hmmm good question..I've never even heard about this book.
One thing that caught my eyes at first was the colour of the cover.
It is pink (oh's as if the colour of stabilo)
I picked up that book, and there's something in the cover said:
"The winner of Bookers Prize of Fiction 1981 and Shakespeare Prize 1999)
Haha now you know why I bought that book;p
I haven't read it yet..
Something that's quite odd is that the pages are based on the prime number.
So don't expect to find page 1, 4, 6, 8, etc... in the book..
go here to read the review

I loveeeee this film...
I haven't read the book yet, but I definitely will.
For those who doesn't know..this film was based on the book written by Nicholas Spark
*He is the one who also write A Walk to Remember and Message In the Bottle"
Hmmm I don't find anything phylosophical in this movie..
I was just amazed by the pure love shown in the movie..
Arrghh better not mention anything further more..
I'm afraid I'll spoiled the story haha
Just check it out for yourself:)
click here

Haha most of you probably notice that I now spend most of my time in front of my lovely computer..
Can you imagine that..I've spent 10 hours online today..
*Pyuh* better start to keep my self away from computer huh haha

You're a Winter. You very much enjoy your time
alone but do like other people's company
sometimes. You just need your space. You have a
few priviledged friends who saw past your
colder exterior to find the true you. You can
have pretty bad mood swings (though you hate to
admit it) so you could be soft one second then
storming around the next! But over all, you're
a very pleasant person once people take the
time to get to know you. You're a good friend
for in-depth talks. You're very talanted when
it comes to creative things.(If you can't see
tje pics, go to my homepage and look near the
bottom and find your result)

What season are you? (pics)
