sometimes, death comes quietly creeping from the corner of your road of life...and catches you by surprise.

so here's to you, Crocodile Hunter. you will be greatly missed, especially by me & my boyfriend who regularly watched your show back then..

when i met a snake back in Tammisaari, my boyfriend told me to remember what you once said in your show..that it's snakes who are afraid of humans, and i shouldn't be afraid of snakes. well, even if i still am afraid (of course), but remembering what you once said (and saw lots of times that you're right about that) would maybe make me less panicked the next time i encounter a snake.

rest in peace, mate.

so touched..

went out with Rini & Lia today after a long time of not seeing them (and after only a brief moment behind the stage at C-Choir's concert)..

we ate together..talked about our latest news..and went around the mall, just like the old times..

then they helped me getting a set of brooch for my wedding kebaya..(i know, sounds weird, right..but trust me, i need those for my kebaya)

and suddenly, they decided to get me a set of gloves which i had wanted (i'm not rich, so yeah, i couldn't afford it yet..and yes, of COURSE one needs a set of gloves for living in Finland :p) and said "so you'll remember us whenever you wear them."

now sitting here in front of my computer, thinking of all the things we had gone through together in the past, and how i'm about to leave them and how they all supported my decision, just like they always have been...
i just broke into tears..
it dawned on me that i will be miles away from them, and though there're internet and skype, nothing can replace the real them.

i'll miss them so much.

haven't done these for a while

You Are a Learning Cook

You've got the makings of an excellent cook, and the desire to be one.
But right now, you're just lacking the experience. You couldn't be a top chef yet, but you could be an apprentice.

You Passed 8th Grade Math

Congratulations, you got 9/10 correct!

You Are a Goth!

You're so gothically outrageous, and you aren't afraid to flaunt it.
Whether you dress up like Robert Smith or a tragic Little Bo Peep,
chances are that you'll be parading around with the rest of the goths at Yoyogi Park on Sunday.
Don't forget your white makeup and blue lipstick! Who knows?
You may just get picked up by one of the seedy photographers.

What Your Face Says

At first glance, people see you as down to earth and reliable.

Overall, your true self is creative and expressive.

With friends, you seem dramatic, lively, and quick to react.

In love, you seem mysterious and interesting.

In stressful situations, you seem sad and helpless.

You Are a Chihuahua Puppy

Small, high strung, and loyal.
You do best in the city with a adults - young kids could crush you!

You Are 40% Weird

Normal enough to know that you're weird...
But too damn weird to do anything about it!

You Are 32% Cynical

Generally you give people the benefit of the doubt. But there are exceptions.
You buy into many of the things that mainstream society believes, but you're not anybody's fool.

You Should Learn Japanese

You're cutting edge, and you are ready to delve into wacky Japanese culture.
From Engrish to eating contests, you're born to be a crazy gaijin. Saiko!

i'm pretty proud of the second test..at least i know that i can still pass 8th graders math test! gosh, i miss math..& physics.. (yeah, i'm a geek)
that Femina magazine is really something :D
bought the newest issue today with such a dilemma (is it really worth the 15k i'm about to spend on it?), but ended up pleased with it.

it has some recipes, for Dutch food and Western-Asian fusion food..NYAM!
can't wait to try it for my new household later on ;)

other news. my mum got 4 free tickets for us to go to that Disney Lantern Fun-Tasy thing, so YAY! we're going there this Saturday. wonder what i'll wear (last time it was pink lolita-ish get up..maybe now i can wear some black lolita-ish get up :p)...gonna take more pictures of myself and Alice! and the White Rabbit! and the Cheshire Cat! and the Queen! and the cards! and of course, with Ariel, Tinkerbell, Snow White, and those cute birds from the Lion King too!

yet another news. got the travel insurance ready today. last step: apply for visa. doki doki.

with a smile and a song

there goes my last performance with C-Choir (last night, to be precise).

got a mixed feeling inside, one side says "hooray!" and the other says "boohoo..".
but no matter what, i know it has to be this way.
i have to move on, they also have to move on.

i didn't end it with a good "singing" performance, though.
yet it was a good "interactive" performance, where we could hop around with the kids who came..in case you're wondering, last night we sang for the Disney Lantern Fun-Tasy event. so of course our audience were little kids.

i had fun.
i imagined it would be even more fun with my hubby (to-be) and my child (SO to-be) to be there too among the audience.
...ah, if only. at least the image of that in my mind helped me got through last night.

hard to believe i'm leaving this singing group after being there from the very first day it was born (Oct. 2004).
but of course, it's even more hard to believe i'm leaving this country after being here from the very first day i was born.

And life flows along
With a smile and a song

proud to be a C-Choir-ian

Wow..setelah berbagai ketidak yakinan (yg akhirnya beralih menjadi kepasrahan), akhirnya ternyata C-Choir berhasil juga mengadakan 4 KALI KONSER tgl 29-30 Juli kemarin.
Who would've thought we'd be able to come this far?

Pertama kali manggung di Ambassador Mall dgn sekitar 15-an orang (eh..bener ga ya?) dengan seorang dirigen, dan akhirnya "berakhir" (walopun belom bener2 berakhir lowh!) dgn konser 4 kali di Nyi Ageng Serang dgn sekitar 40-an org (termasuk crew)..kata apa lagi yg bisa mendeskripsikan perasaan gue selain "wow"?

Waktu di Ambassador Mall, kita semua tampil seadanya, polos, tanpa ekspresi, nyanyi adalah sebuah kewajiban...
Di konser kita yg kemarin, kita masih tampil seadanya, tapi penuh dgn ekspresi, nyanyi adalah sesuatu yg indah yg kita lakukan demi membantu org lain...
Mungkin kita memang ga bisa mengubah dunia dgn konser ini, tapi kita sendiri sudah mengalami perubahan dalam diri kita masing2, dan pasti akan berhasil mengubah keadaan anak2 Sekolah Padu Marunda Pitung menjadi sedikit lebih baik.

Sejak kecil, gue suka banget sama yg namanya "panggung". Mulai dari balet, operet, sampe waktu bokap ngadain acara dies natalis buat kampusnya aja gue ikut2an lari ke atas panggung dan bercentil2 ria.

Gue ga tau ke mana larinya rasa pede gue jaman gue SMP dan kuliah. Mungkin karena faktor "cliques" (in which i've NEVER been a part of, mind you) di kedua institusi itu, gue jadi lebih sering merasa ga pede dan harus menutupi diri gue yg sebenernya. (Yeah, how sad :p )

Menemukan C-Choir (atas ajakan kakak tercinta ;) ) adalah salah satu hal terbaik yg pernah terjadi di hidup gue. It's like finding my old self back...and boy, have i missed it.
I can finally be on stage again, be who i am again, and do it all once again..singing, acting, dancing..
Walaupun i have to admit, badan gue ga setuju dgn hal ini..Abis manggung hari pertama, badan langsung rematikencokpegellinu di mana2 & maag gue ga ketulungan...yg akhirnya membuat gue ngerasa kurang 'sempurna' di show ke-empat kemarin. Hmm, but it's okay. I've done my best, dan kalau penonton ga melihat itu, at least i know it, God knows it, and the SPMP kids know that we're all doing our best :)

I personally enjoyed the 3rd show very much.. The Only Hope and Singin' In the Rain number that i sang was directly from my heart, and it's nice hearing my friends (and mum) said that i did a great job :D Dan walaupun Rini & Lia yg udh nyempet2in dateng cuma bisa liat gue di show pertama, di mana gue 'cuma' nyanyiin Dreams to Dream sama Singin' In the Rain, but still, i did my best in all the shows, and i'm ever so grateful for them to be able to make it there ..and actually LOVED the show! Thanks so much yaaaah! :*

This could be my last show, but i'm not sorry. I'm glad i've been a part of C-Choir, menjadi bagian dari C-Choir dalam misinya yg mulia, dan sekaligus menjadi diri gue yg seutuhnya.
Thank you, C-Choir. I'm proud to be a part of you.


i just got back from Finland..i'm sad to be parted again with him, but something keeps me alive..

i'm getting married :)

we're planning to have it later this year, if all goes well.

are you afraid of the dark?

..i am :p
especially after seeing a shadow with the shape of half a balloon, slowly rising up and then went downwards & disappeared just like that.

it happened in my room, of course, last night, at around 3.30am, where the only light came from a small gap between my window & its curtain, but the shadow was as if it (whatever it is)'s directly in front of the wall since its edges are crystal clear & smooth (not shaggy or blurry).
but of course, nothing's there.

now i wonder if i can get through the night..*sigh*

yes i am a scaredy ca---dog.

we've come a long way, baby..

i've called the Finnish embassy today, and they said they'll have my visa ready on Friday.

..wow. can you believe i just said that?
i mean, looking back at my entries from like, a year or so ago, i was only dreaming of myself getting together with "my Finnish 6-years-online-chatting friend", and now, a year and a couple of months later..look at me, i'm planning my trip to Finland, to meet his side of the family, as things are definitely going to get more serious than 'just a relationship' now.

does this sound real to me? well..no..it feels so surreal.. :) in a good way, of course.
and to think that if Elzy didn't "do something" back then, we (me & my beau, that is) prolly wouldn't have gone this far yet by now :D
i just wish i could've gone to her place as well, but heaven forbid, the visa to go there costs 1 million rups already :| sorry, Elz..

i'm done translating half the last book (last before i go on my little vacation, i mean), so far so good..
meanwhile, since my dear sister is now 11 weeks pregnant (and feeling nausea almost all the time), i'm also becoming her so-called substitute in our singing group, since we're preparing for the big concert. (er, she's the leader in music department of our group, and by concert i mean we're gonna do this special charity-performance.)

hmm..can't wait for the trip..in 35 days, he'll be here again...and away to his castle we'll go ;)
