Family

at HRC KutaWhen I was at home, we took several family photos. This particular one was taken in Hard Rock Cafe, Kuta, when we were having lunch with a family friend.
We also got some studio photos taken, which at first turned out to be a complete disaster, since my little brother played with his dumb looks! Luckily enough, the photographer was a kind gentleman. He gave us the chance to re-do the photos again. That means, we had to dress up again *since we already changed to a normal outfit*


the studio photoSo before and during the second retake, we continuously warned Han-han (my little bro, red.) to not do the dumb expressions again. Otherwise... *grins*


I really thank God, it's a Friday again! Yeah! I can't actually believe that it's already Friday again. Time really flies like rocket huh?
I am, at the moment, enjoying suffering my time doing programmings. It is hard to get used to, since it is so different to Mathematics. Usually, when I was doing Maths, I would be actively copying what the lecturer writes on the whiteboard to my notebook. However, now, all I have to is sit, look at the slideshows the teacher prepares for us. It is so very boring!! *That's all I can tell you out of it!*
And understanding the theorem is completely different to applying all those magic words to become a decent-working program! Now, I would wonder myself... "Why did I take this course?!" Oh well... there is no use thinking of that, is there?


Well... to get my stress out of my brain, I am starting to knit a scarf again. Yeah... another scarf! I finished one when I was at home. I was intending to make it for myself, but my grandma likes it at the first minute she saw it, besides, she needs one anyway since she's not as fit as she used to be anymore. So... I gave it to her. I was happy that she wears it alot. My mum told me to make some more for some dear family-friends... *hang on a second! I only have two hands and this really depends on my mood! Haha!*
I also made one brown scarf for my brother, and he's wearing it in Brighton! *happy* I think I can make a business out of it prety much now :P but I am still learning to do simple patterns now. So... still a beginner. :)
my latest hobbySo, here I am, doing another scarf. It started several days ago, when I went to the market for my groceries. I stopped by a yarn shop, there I saw some prety purple yarns. I fell in love with the colour, so I bought it straight away. Hehehe! It's a good hobby and actually producing something! *grin*


Sometimes, I do stress out when I make a mistake, especially if I spot it after I am already getting so far from it. I have to take off all the knits until the wrong spot and do them all over again. But... it's still fun I think! It's much more cheaper than buying a new scarf in the shop... it's just taking quite some times to finish it, that's all. :)


Oh well... I don't actually know what was my intention of typing this post, but... just regard this as a little news from me :D
Okay... I hope you all have a blessed weekend and a fun one! Take care, everyone!


God bless!

Missing you...

Sisters and bestest friend forever!Denpasar - Bali
06 August 2005 - 10 August 2005

Yeah... I am missing you, sist!
I still remember those several days we spent together...
Do you know?
How happy I was when you came for real to my house?!
When we ate till we felt like bursting out...
When we walked and sat and sun-bathed in Kuta beach...
When we talked for hours in the nights...
When you slept up-side-down?

Yeah... I remember them well...
Time passes and life moves on...
But our memories will stay fresh in our minds.
I was sad when you left...
Don't know when we will meet again...
I am sure we will, anyway...

Been seven years, sist...
And our bond still getting stronger...
This friendship and sisterhood of ours...
Beautifully knitted by The Lord's hands.

I miss you, sist...
Do you? I'm sure you do. :)
God bless and take a good care, sist!
Until we meet again...
I love you!

Note: we took this photo before we left my house to take her to the airport...

Enaknya jadi superstar...

Huehuehue... I am exagerating with the title there!
Tapi emang bener euy! Enak lho jadi the only girl in the course! Yup yup, akhirnya aku tahu juga... setelah semua mahasiswa digabungin jadi satu (karena ada 2 rute di semester pertama Master Computer Science), ternyata dari 11 murid yang ada, akulah the superstar si cewek sendiran :D
Enaknya adalah... mereka sangat baik hati padaku *hohoho...* Jadi ceritanya nih, minggu kemaren, aku stress berat karena ada satu assignment utk Java language program, yang aku sama sekali ga bisa... Akhirnya, setelah bercakap2 bersama para cowok-cowok dan mengatakan bahwa saya belum mampu menyelesaikan tugas tersebut, mereka dengan sukarelanya mau membantu diriku. Hehehehe... Jadinya tugas tersebut aku tuntaskan dengan bantuan dari para cowok-cowok. Senangnyahhhhh!!!
Hanya saja, sayangnya... tidak ada satupun dari mereka yang bisa dijadikan pemandangan indah di saat-saat membosankan di dalam kelas. *sigh*


Jadi ya beginilah... minggu kemaren was very very hectic! Sampe-sampe hari Jumat kemaren pulang kuliah rasanya lemessss banget! So, I really meant it when I said 'Thank God, it's Friday!'.


What I have been doing today? Watching anime! Hehehe... Sekarang lagi suka-sukanya nonton anime Full Metal Panic - The Second Raid. Seruuuu!!! Belon lagi soundtracknya... aku benar-benar suka!


Yo wis ah... gitu aja dulu. Akhir-akhir ini lg garing banget inspirasi utk update blog. Nape ya?

Salah bulan!

Kemaren ada kejadian yang benar-benar lucu deh yaa....
Jam wekerku berbunyi jam 7 kurang 10 menit... berhubung kuliahku mulai jam 9, maka aku harus bangun 2 jam sebelumnya. Trus tiba-tiba ada SMS masuk di handphone-ku. SMS itu isinya menyuruhku untuk bangun dan mengucapkan selamat ulang tahun.
Tentu saja aku yang masih ngantuk-ngantuk itu sempat terpekur...


"Selamat ulang tahun? Emangnya sekarang ini bulan apa yah? Oktober bukan?,"aku membatin dalam hati. Saat aku sadar bahwa aku tidak salah bulan, aku tertawa di dalam hati. Wah sepertinya si pengirim itu sedang ngelamun!


Akhirnya aku pun bersiap untuk segera berangkat kuliah. Saat aku duduk di bis menuju kampus, kubalas SMSnya... "Hei, thanks for waking me up, but, btw, sebenernya sekarang ini bulan Oktober atau November sih? Sejak kapan ultahku dimajukan satu bulan?"
Ternyata, tak lama kemudian handphoneku bergetar. Ah, ternyata si pengirim SMS! Dia maluuuuuuuuuuu!!! Hahahaha... Alasannya sih karena dia lagi stres dan linglung! Huekekekek...
Masih terus tertawa aku bila ingat kejadian kemaren! Ada-ada saja! Hahaha... Tanggalnya bener, tapi bulannya salah! But! It was a nice start for my day!


Thanks, pal, for brighten up my day! *hugs*

The fourth Week

Yeehaaaa!!! I am in my fourth week of first semester now! A third-way to the holiday! Hehehe... I know you all will say, "Hey! You just started Uni again, how come you are already thinking about Christmas holiday?!" Hehehe... because I do! *grin*


I am actually very very excited for the coming holiday! Why? Because I want to go to BRIGHTON!! Yeah... I miss my family so much, so the best escape will be visiting my brother :) I can't wait to there, because a lot of people say it is a beautiful place! I have seen some photos that my bro took, they even made more excited to go there! Haha...


Right now I am feeling a bit odd uncomfortable with the lectures that I have... Yeah it is a truly advantage being the only female in the group! But still... they are all boys *sigh*


I had a busy weekend... I tried to do as much as I could with my homework and I am very happy with what I did over the weekend. The weather aren't too bad either lately... not too cold and NOT rainy! *Thank God!*
Everywhere I walk, there are brown and yellow leaves pilling up... They are beautiful, though...


Hmm... I think that's all for now! Take care everyone! I hope you all will be having a good week!


To someone again...
You still made me smile... Thank you.

Aku Sudah Belajar...

Aku sudah belajar bahwa...
Tidak selamanya hidup ini indah
Kadang Tuhan mengizinkan aku melalui lembah derita
Tetapi aku tahu bahwa Ia tak pernah meninggalkanku
Sebab itu aku akan selalu bergembira.


Aku sudah belajar bahwa...
Tidak semua yang kuharapkan akan menjadi kenyataan
Kadang Tuhan membelokkan rencanaku
Tetapi aku tahu bahwa itu lebih baik dari apa yang kurencanakan
Sebab itu aku akan selalu bergembira.


Aku sudah belajar bahwa...
Pencobaan itu pasti datang di dalam hidupku
Dan aku tidak mungkin berkata "Tidak, Tuhan!"
Karena aku tahu bahwa itu tidak melampaui kekuatanku
Sebab itu aku akan selalu bergembira.


Aku sudah belajar bahwa...
Tidak ada kejadian yang harus disesali dan ditangisi
Karena semua rancangan-Nya indah bagiku
Maka aku akan bersyukur dan bergembira di dalam segala perkara
Karena bergembira adalah resep jitu yang aku dapatkan dari firman-Nya.

Weekend is here again... only a few weeks left until Christmas and new year. It's like time is chasing us to the limit. Works are piling up for me, there are lots of things to absorb at so little time. I hope I can stand this pressure... God help me.

These several days, I feel so empty inside... Waiting in the quietness. The more I feel empty, the more I cry for You, Lord... Suddenly, I have become so scared that You might leave me alone by myself. Well... I already feel alone in this world of mine right now, so I beg, never leave me by myself. You are my Anchor, my Everything, and the One, who keeps me going and walking ahead... even if it hurts so much and cuts so deep within.

To someone...
I am sorry that I cannot tell you all these things in my heart, I know one day you'll realized it. I am sorry that it hurts you, how I wish that it only hurts me and not you... Keep strong, I know, you can go through it.
Ask for wisdom as I ask for you... Decide for the best in your life! Don't look back nor left and right! One thing I want for you is an eternal happiness both in this life and the life after...
Take care, dear... You are precious.


Happy weekend, everyone! God bless you all abundantly!

Fallen Leaves... New Hopes Will Grow

[A thought]
As I was walking across the parking lots of the University to the bus stop, I stepped on piles of fallen leaves with different brown colours... Some light browns, some dark browns, some yellowy browns and some greenish...
As I moved forward, wind blew other leaves separating them from the branches they were attached to. It was like walking in a rain of leaves.

This happens every year; every autumn; in between late September and November.
And the trees become 'bald', leafless...
Not really a pleasant scenery, really! A bunch of trees in the park without any leaves, but I think, if they (the trees, I mean) were given choices, they will still choose this way... Being bald in the autumns and winters.

Yet... they won't be stay bald for the rest of their lives! When winter passed away, spring comes! New buds around the branches, new leaves grow gracefully... a sign of a new growth, a new life, a new glory!

In the middle of spring, they will be ready... trees full of leaves, ready to greet the coming summer. The birds come and rest under the branch; to cool down or to continually live under its shadows, which gives peace and comfort.
And so the fallen leaves paid off for the better, greener and more beautiful growth in the future.
[/thought]


So is our lives...
There are things that The Lord wants us to give up in this present time; things that may be dearly to us that we hold them so tight and don't want to let go, things that have been around and so familiar in our lives.

Let us learn from the trees and the fallen leaves...
Letting go those precious 'leaves' may not be an easy task, but when The Lord asks us to do so, He will give us the strength to accomplish it. He will be with us and guide us step by step *even if we don't feel it*
For when He does that, He already stores something better, something more beautiful and delightful for us in replace of the things we give up.

In that way, we grow each day... better, 'greener' and more beautiful in the eyes of The Lord.
Let us learn... from the fallen leaves.

God bless you all! Have a blessed weekend! Take care!

Happy Birthday, Bro!

I remember the time we were little...
Laughing, crying, fighting with each other...
It was moments to remember.
And I will always remember!

Now that you are grown up,
I am glad we have a strong bond.
sibling-hood and good friend!

I am thankful for you!
I am blessed by God with your presence in my life!

Thank you...
For listening to me.
For the times together.
For the things we learnt.

Thank you... for being my brother!
Happy birthday, bro!
Happy 19th birthday!
May it be a blessed and a sweet one!

Love
Your sist.

And Again?!

Hayah hayah! Ampir aja HP kulempar tuh pas baca SMS dari Yulia, my bestest friend, di Jakarta! Pertama sempet ga percaya kalo itu bom lage!
Tapi ya... begitu buka Yahoo.com, lemes lah dirikuh! Beneran ik! Akhirnya, aku ngirim SMS ke ortu, eh malah bikin resah! Soalnya biasanya cepet banget dapet balesan, ini koq ga dibales-bales toh yo?!

*bingung, resah, khawatir*

*fiuhh....* Aku baru lega begitu ngeliat nicknya Mamiku nyala di Yahoo! Messenger! Rasanya legaaaaaa banget! Ternyata, pas bom itu meledak, mereka lagi tenang-tenang makan di Pizza Hut! Dan sebelumnya itu sempet lagi belanja and dapet hadiah lucky prize kipas angin! Nah lho!?

Pas kutanya, ternyata, ada sekitar 6 atau 7 ledakan terjadi! Di antaranya di Hotel Four Season dan Westin (Nusa Dua) *ini yang pertama*, lalu di 2 kafe pinggir pantai Jimbaran, di Nusa Dua, deket Uluwatu. Trus yang paling parah, katanya, di Radja Restaurant, di kompleks pertokoan Kuta Square. *that's a pity! I haven't tried to eat in that resto :P*

Berita terakhir katanya total ada 22 korban meninggal dan 51 luka-luka. Cuma baru 6 orang yang teridentifikasi; ada beberapa orang Amerika, Australia dan juga satu orang Jepang kalo gak salah!

Duh duh duh... negara ini akan menuju kemana yah?! BBM naek, eh malah ada BOM! Sudah terpuruk tambah remuk! *hiks*

May The Lord forgive those who did these things,
For they know not what they were doing.
Amen!
