for my son on your birthday

Sepetinya lagu ini bukan lagu "cinta biasa", sepertinya tercipta atas suara hati seorang ibu terhadap anaknya. Beberapa blogger mom, mendedikasi lagu ini untuk putra putrinya..:).
This song is my favorite, langsung teringat Kevinku waktu pertama kali dennger lagu ini.

Kau begitu sempurna
Dimataku kau begitu indah
Kau membuat diriku akan slalu memujimu

Disetiap langkahku
Kukan slalu memikirkan dirimu
Tak bisa kubayangkan hidupku tanpa cintamu

Janganlah kau tinggalkan diriku
Takkan mampu menghadapi semua
Hanya bersamamu ku akan bisa

Kau adalah darahku
Kau adalah jantungku
Kau adalah hidupku
Lengkapi diriku
Oh sayangku, kau begitu
Sempurna... Sempurna...

Kau genggam tanganku
Saat diriku lemah dan terjatuh
Kau bisikkan kata dan hapus semua sesalku

Janganlah kau tinggalkan diriku
Takkan mampu menghadapi semua
Hanya bersamamu ku akan bisa

Kau adalah darahku
Kau adalah jantungku
Kau adalah hidupku
Lengkapi diriku
Oh sayangku, kau begitu
Sempurna... Sempurna...

Kau genggam tanganku
Saat diriku lemah dan terjatuh
Kau bisikkan kata dan hapus semua sesalku

for ma on your birthday

everytime I listened to this song on my IPOD, it never failed to make me cry

Il Divo,
Mama thank you for who I am
Thank you for all the things I'm not
Forgive me for the words unsaid
And for the times
I forgot
Mama remember all my life
You showed me love,you sacrificed
Think of those young and early days
How I've changed
Along the way (along the way)
And I know you believed
And I know you had dreams
And I'm sorry it took all this time to see
That I am where I am because of your truth
And I miss you , I miss you
Mama forgive the times you cried
Forgive me for not making right
All of the storms I may have caused
And I've been wrong
Dry your eyes (dry your eyes)
Bridge : BECAUSE I know you BELIEVE
Mama I hope this makes you smile
I hope you're happy with my life
At peace with every choice I made
How I've changed
Along the way (along the way)
Cause I know you believed in all of my dreams
And I owe it all to you ,mama

Despite all my behavious, all my words that hurt your feeling..
please forgive me,ma...I Love you're the greatest.

takut meminta

pernah ngga teman-teman merasa takut meminta kapada Sang Pemilik,
takut meminta yang terbaik,
karena takut yang terbaik itu suatu yang menakutkan?
*di titik nadir*

ke- GR-an

Ini cerita kemaren, yang punya YM id gue, mungkin ingat gue kemaren mendadak disuruh big boss datang workshop Oil and Gas for bankers. Yah..getulah....
Ternyata acaranya selesai lama juga, sampai menjelang buka puasa. Tadinya gue mau cabut jam 5.15 mengejar KRL AC Sudirman Serpong tercintah  tapi ternyata di meja gue dari 6 perserta, tinggal 3 peserta aja yang duduk manis.
Gue ngajak temen gue keluar, dianya ngga enak..
Yo wes lah, gue memutuskan tinggal sampai akhir acara.
Pas sesi tanya jawab......
Sejak gue ikutan milis sampah , dimana ini satu satunya milis yang gue ikutin dan gue ngga ada dapat apa-apa kecuali nambah  dosa dan hinaan, gue jadi hobi nyampah, dan suka lupa kalo gue di forum resmi.
(selama training gue bukannya nyimak, malah sibuk ikutan confrence di YM  dan balas email-email nista itu)
Bertanyalah gue dengan pertanyaan sok penting *yang penting nyampah*
Terus, apa karena pertanyaan gue sophisticated ato gue satu satunya makhluk cantik yang bertanya, pertanyaan dapat hadiah…buku Sophie’s World dari Joestein Gaarder (sayangnya, gue udah baca buku ini sejak 8 tahun lalu).
Dah kelar, sholat magrib…terus mau ngejar kereta Ciujung.
Nyampe lobby, gue bertemu dan ketiga pembiacara tersebut, gue minta kartu nama mereka...surprisely, mereka hafal nama gue (eyalah...)
Yang lebih kocak lagi, salah satu pembicara nanya:
”Bapak kamu kerja di perusahaan minyak ya, pertanyaan kamu agak spesifik”
heheheheh, iya siy sebetulnya...
Cuma yang bikin gue GR, kok dia nanyanya Bapak kamu bukan suami kamu , apakah sejak lingkar pinggang gue menurun 10 cm, dan lemak gue menghilang at least , 3 kg,sehingga stelan rok dan blazer  gue muat lagi, gue kelihatan seperti gadis lagi...

ramadhan reflection

it was a-6.00 am- flight on my business trip to Palembang, August last year. Afraid of a possibility that I might miss the plane, I woke up before down. At 2.30 am. While waiting for my-4.00 am- taxi that will take me to the airport, I surf the line (I blog, therefore I am :). I had my shubuh prayer at there and at 7 am, I'd arrived in Palembang.

August the following year, I took BSMR test, a risk management certificate for bankers. Had a great worry that I might failed the test (the result won't be announced until next Saturday via text message,please wish me passed :-SS), I woke up very early 3-4 days before the D day, to study the material.
Just to remind you, I'm not a morning person,so I had an extra effort everytime I have to wake up early. Almost everyday, I wake up at least 5.30 am. As a moslem, you might know what my obligation is.

I live this verse for almost my entire life --- from the moment my parent sign me up for an Al Quran reciting class- back in early 80's:
Wal Asr
Innal insaana la fii khusr

by Asr (the time)
Man surely in lost

but I guess I've been a fool after all this time, I never take a serious thinking about my time management. I was afraid of my existence rather than my self as a Hamba Allah. I act, as if I owned this universe.
Surely, I was among the lost.

self indulgence

you know something weird? Contemplation become my self indulgence lately.
while I'm doing so, seemed like I have idea how to solve my problem.
I think I've been doing since sometime ago, but it is emphasized since my all-by-my-self-trip to Bali last July .
except this gathering I have with unimportant people from Warung KGB every now and then ,I didn't enjoy being in the crowd that much anymore,:-D

Despite who I was before, and who (or what) I will be in the future,
this indulgence can rouse the positive side of me.
getting older, doesn't necessarily made ones as an adult
A reflection to my past, there ware many occurrence, I was a child that trapped inside a grown up figure.
Like to share what's yours?

I had this chit chat with an old friend of mine,then realizing - except the part I have those beautiful babies- my life seemed pathetic. *sigh*

a customer point of view

For years, there were only one mini store available at my office building. So whenever I run out of tissue, or feel like chewing Cadbury, or forget my sock for gym class, there was my (only) place to pick up something missing. Its price more expensive than any regular store, but who dare walking 150 m to Grand Lucky or taking a bus to Carefour during office hour just to get a pack of cigaret or sanitary napkins for instead .Happy Cyclops

I think since the store has no competitive , that made us, as the tenants and the customer had no other choice. The mini store looked like regular warung --- the mini store in your neighborhood--- but it is equipped with AC, even it isn't cool enough, they don’t stack things neatly, it look more to a warehouse than a mini store.

Moreover, it is illuminated with dim light as well, but again…we had no other choice.:-/, and they don't bother to serve us better.

But, few weeks ago, now open this Star Mart Franchise, that offers

  • local & import magazines,

  • cooler AC, brighter lamp,

  • the things for sale were stacked neatly

  • a coffee machine ^:)^, and...

  • whenever you bought a cup of Pop Mie, they'll be glad pour hot water for free as well

The price is slighty expensive that the old store, but for many of us, we better went to SM.

Actually, I wanted to post the pictures for both stores, and that'd be the end of this entry. But it will made my writing meaningless (halah, sok pinter loe ky...)8-}

In my shallow thinking, analogy to human being,

If you do something with extra effort with the way you look, probably you'll gain more respect, remember how important the first impression is? Dress properly, a nice hair do and light make up if necessary and…service with smile!

No, you don’t need to be pretty or wear something branded, just like those two store, they almost sell the same thing.

But how the Star Mart arrange their store, made us the customer, feel better spend money there there instead of the old store.

PS : tetep aja tulisan gue ngga mutu ya...=))

Lunatic things women do to impress her lover

Sabtu lalu, setelah pulang dari Barney Show di Senayan, dan gagal mengajak Aufa, keponakan calon PNS propinsi bangka belitung, keluar,gue leyeh2x saja di depan tivi. Saat itu sedang disiarkan reality show remaja Termehek Mehek. Nonton episode kemaren, antara geli dan kasihan sendiri meratapi nasib si klien TMM itu. Seketika ingat postingan si tax manager dengan judul diatas.

Ceritanya ada perempuan muda bernama Nisa (kalo ngga salah) yang melapor ke crew program tersebut, konon kabarnya her-lover-who-had-offered-her-a-wedding-proposal- hilang raib tak berbekas selama 3 bulan terakhir. Investigasi dimulai dengan cara:

- mendatangi kantor si pacar, nyelonong g masuk ke ruangan HRG Managernya, who-seemed-very-irritated-and-act rude. Well, I understand why, I don't think we suppose to act polite with (seemed to be) less manner individuals.

- terus, dapatlah alamat si cowok ini, yang kebetulan kedua orangtua cowok ini ada dirumah. The mommy gave them the do-I-know-you look dan si babe mengusir dengan sukses romobongan makhluk yang tak mereka kenal bawa2x kamera. Jadi tontonan nasional permirsa aja kalo si Nisa ditipu mentah2x oleh cowoknya dan tak mendapat simpati dari (seharusnya) calon mertua.

-cerita berlanjut ke lokasi si cowok masang audio system buat mobilnya, si pegawai bengkel setelah membocorkan alamat cowok si Nisa, ke gap ama pemilik bengkel dan gelagapan takut dimarahin, lalu salah satu host acara tersebut ngibrit . Duh...semoga si pegawai bengkel tersebut ngga dimaki2x deh ama bossnya, apalagi sampe dipecat...kasihan...orang susah jangan dibuat tambah susah donk.ckckkckckc

- singkat cerita, entah rekayasa entah tidak...di episode berikutnya (giling, cerita ini ampe 2 episode bow,gilingnya lagi, gue nonton kedua-duanya =))), crew dan client nemu mobil si pangeran tampan tanpa kuda ini, dan membuntuti mobil berwarna silver tersebut. Lalu keluarlah 2 perempuan ngga kalah muda yang salah satunya ngaku pacar si pangeran tampan tanpa kuda ini--- dan nyolot --- dan berantemlah mereka berdua dorong-dorongan mungkin pake acara keluar makian. You know the the silliest thing is? This was tape on camera and broadcasted to the entire country, Halah...segitu worth it kah, pemuda bernama (ruddy/rully?) ini untuk diperebutkan?:@)

- pokoknya lagi, si Nisa ini dapat bertemu dengan pemuda harapan bangsa-nya, tapi tentu saja, dengan acara maki-maki dan berantem lagi dan diusir lagi and of course it was recorded.
*semoga loe dapat cowok baik ya bow--- kasihan gue liat loe*

Reality show model gini banyak, cuma karena ini yang ditonton agak serius, dan pas abis baca postingan bunda rara itu, ini yang gue tulis.
kapan ya ada reality show yang dapat mewujudkan cita-cita gue untuk membersihkan artificial tatto-nya wentworth miller?:x

anyway, ternyata ada cerita yang lebih pathetic dibanding 3 exhibit yang dicontohkan Dini dalam postingannya itu (oh yeah, the story is real, gue tau pelaku di salah satu cerita tersebut).

Asking for what is my lunatic action toward a man on my dream was? (as my comment on the related post). I think this is silly/stupid instead of lunatic.
Suatu ketika, di saat berat dan tinggi badan gue masih proposional, I had a major crush on this guy, who happenened to live thousands miles away from Jakarta.Ketika itu, doi datang ke jakarta, gue harap2x cemas diajak ketemuan (dan emang dia ngajak ketemuan). Happy donk...tentu saja.
saat itu gue udah tau mau make baju apa, my white shirt from Gap together with the black denim skirt, dan kebetulan sepupu gue yang kuliah di Perth baru datang bawa tas bludru hitam putih motif zebra buat gue as a souvernir. Berarti tinggal cari...sepatunya.
Ke Metro Pondok Indah lah gue, and purchase a black sandals that cost Rp 289 ribu. saat itu...7 tahun lalu, disaat gue udah lulus tapi belon kerja harga segitu mahal bow!!!!tapi kan demi tampil keren didepan pangeran tampan tanpa kuda versi gue.8-|

waktu sudah ditentukan, dan gue harus ke kampus dulu--- kalo ngga salah, (untuk suatu urusan yang gue lupa apa)...eng ing eng...:O)Dapatlah gue telpon dari pujaan hati gue (saat itu), and he said he was really on a tight schedule to prepare everything before flying on the other side of this world few days later.
@-)at least waktu gue terpuruk lesu, date dengan sang pangeran tak berkuda itu gagal I wasn't on tivi. hahahahahhaha :P
baru beberapa tahun kemudian gue bertemu lagi dengan pujaan hati gue (saat itu) yang membawa undangan pernikahannya untuk gue. Hahahhahaha

so, care to share yours? *wink*

PS : gue tetap susah negbayangin sebuah Kung Fu Panda pingsan di gym!
2nd ps: cerita diatas benar adanya ,ilustrasi dari koleksi pribadi.
3rd ps : ada untungnya gue baru bisa masak setelah punya anak :P

A banker's life

ada cerita nyata antara mengharukan dan lucu.
Minggu lalu sahabat gue dari jaman jadi Manajemen Trainee--- yang sekarang udah jadi kepala cabang (termuda bow) Pompi, datang ke Jakarta.
Sebelumnya beliau sudah bolak balik Palembang – Jakarta untuk ini.Rusuh deh pokoknya.
Kemaren happy berat karena mau signing PK (perjanjian kredit) dengan nominal Rp 180 milyar, provisi 0,8% .p.a
Bisa dibayangkan keuntungan cabang Palembang in the near future,belum dari bunga fasilitasnya.
Ngga lama setelah belio balik ke Palembang,
Pompi nelpon gue lagi, gue tanya
" loe lagi di Jakarta lagi?"
dia bilang iya..
karena prospek nasabah dia kemaren...
dipanggil Yang Maha Kuasa...
gue antara  berempati dan tertawa terbahak2x...
Tuhan membebaskan (calon) nasabah itu dari hutang Rp 180 milyar...

Last two weeks, I made Spainish (suppose to be Vanila) Mocha Cake, which I accidently erase the pictures from my camera, since I was upset I only brought 1 GB SD card with me to Bali last week.

Anyway, mbak nining, "master" dalam hal per-baking-an, dimana ketika gue dan kezia ultah selalu mesen ke blio, posting resep ini di blognya. Langsung tertarik, ada wortelnya bow. dengan tekad yang kuat mau seperti De, yang selalu sempat buat kue buat rafa sekolah...gue ngga mau kalah...
wong naik KRL-nya sama-sama jam 7.25 dari stasiun yang sama.Too Funny
kalo ngikutin yang baik-baiknya ndak papa toh.
Jadilah 3 hari yang lalu buat kue ini, tapi yah nasib...bangun mempet jam setengah 6. dari resep asli, gue buat setengah resepnya. Karena kata mbak nining resep ini kemanisan, gulanya gue kurangin.

Which is...
125 gr gula pasir halus
125 gr gula palem
3 butir telor
250 gr terigu
300 gr wortel kupas, parut kasar --- gue pake 3 wortel import ukuran sedang biar gampang diparut.
175 ml minyak sayur
1 sdt baking powder
0,5 sdt baking soda
pinch of salt
1.5 sdt kayu manis bubuk --- kata mbak nining biar nonjok rasanya...*halah*

How to:
- Panaskan oven 200 deg C
- Masukkan semua bahan kecuali telur dan minyak dalam satu wadah besar, aduk rata
- Tuang minyak pelan-pelan sambil adonan diaduk
- Masukkan telor satu-satu, aduk adonan sampai rata
- Tuang adonan ke dalam cetakan muffin
- Turunkan suhu oven ke 180 deg C
- Panggang kue selama 30 menit
- Angkat, dinginkan

porsi : 12 buah muffin

nah, gue kan ngga bisa menghias tuh, palagi waktu mefet...rada maksa lah interior kue ini pake bunga peka dan kayu manis beneran...kikikikk....dicoba ya! gampang kan! Kevin aja habis 4!

my second bali trip (in year 2008)

hellow everybody!!!
as I told you before, I came back to Bali with my colleagues. I flied with Air Asia 20.00 and arrived at about 23.00. It was first trip to bali (even first time flying for Roni, the taller man who stand in front of Air asia!) for some of my colleagues.

We stayed in Fourteen Rosses in Legian Street, very affordable rate but their rooms have dull interior, due to its age and served dull breakfast aswell *ada harga ada mutu lah ya…*

The tour had been arranged for us and I was pissed off that the tour schedule was to…Kintamani – tanah Lot – Jimbaran…L.

Months before I fly to Bali on July, the tour agent send us an email telling that out trip was to GWK, Uluwatu and Benoa Bay, that’s why I choose Kintamani route on last July.

Well, whatever!

First we went to Batu Bulan, watching Barong show. I wonder all the castings depend on the enterance fee (tiket harga masuk maksud gue, kikikkk) , If there are less tourists, there won't make more money. Pity for them.

After the shows we went forward to Kintamani, I had lunch in different restaurant from my previous and the food was lame.It doesn't allow us to have another mineral water, even we paid for a-buffet-lunch nor it have a spectacular view like the previous resto,either.

Then, we took (almost) the whole picture of C(redit) M(arket) R(isk) G(roup) gank, pas gue lagi sholat dzuhur...uh, sebel!

After lunch, the big boss wanted to visit Istana Tampak Siring, so we headed there. Good thing, since I didn't stop at this palace last July.

Like any other building in Bali, this palace had pura aswell. Some said, this area form a-balineesee woman figure if we see from high above.

It has a beautiful pool, which water never dry even of dry season. It also has 3 moa (eels), which colors are black, white and red. If you happened to see there of them, it will bring you luck.

tetep aja narsis dan foto ngga mutu.

Then…Sunset in Tanah Lot, and still making a silly pictures.

Then, dinner in Jimbaran.

While waiting for the dinner, Lany and I made unordinary pictures, we bought Jagung Bakar and borrow his stuff,pretending that Lany is the seller. Quite funny don’t you think.

After arriving back to Legian street, we headed to Ocean Beach Club, a famous outdoor- club- in Kuta Area, not far from the famous Hard Rock Cafe. It has a pool int he middle of it, where people going wild , including...errr...Oh, I rather no tell. me! We didn't sip any alcohol, trust us. Too Funny

On Sunday, my flight schedule was on 13.50 and there were no the tour schedule for us who took the earlier flight. Since I failed visitting Dreamland last July,

while dinner on previous night, I told my friends I wanted to paid a visit there before flying back to Jakarta, all my colleagues were agree with my idea, and we hired three cars for the next day. The ones who flight on 23.00 pm refuse to join the tour as well.

So…there we were, taking silly pictures in DreamLand beach!

After breakfast, when I lost my appetite due to lack of sleeping time , we headed there,

mulai foto dari yang mutu....tadinya cuma 6 orang yang berangkat jam 13.50.

sampai ketika pasukan Corporate reviewers lain datang....dari foto ibu dan anak sampai pre wedding ngga mutu.

The six of us, who take earlier flight went to Joger, the others headed their journey to GWK.

ow, what a trip.

the comfort zone

one of my close friend sent me a text message last night when I was on the way from Puncak, and it surprised me, my friend had choose a different kind of life, a very big decision. Realizing this blog meant for public , I won't explain about the decision (our network probably read this blog as well), in short my friend get sick and tired about what happened with our network.

and another friend of mine had also made a big decision,she will quit and will act as a-stay-at-home-mommy and giving up a "senior manager" tittle after her name, and yet, she's only 28!

recently, another friend of mine had motivated us , out from the comfort zone, the zone that often fool us, the zone that made us forget there's a beautiful world out there.
Why I was such a chicken, that I'd chose option #1. I could be a wiser me, who knows? If I don't get a damn job anyway, at least I still sit comfortly with my precious. I ain't stupid after all, sure I can find a beautiful life in my own way.

Like Master Shifu from Kung Fu Panda movie said: if you don't try,we'll never know and there are no accident. (I had the movie in my IPOD,so kind of watching it for many times)

Warteg Pak MO

Lokasi : belakang pasar festival.

Sebenarnya, setiap hari Rabu siang adalah jadwal rutin gw untuk menghadiri ceramah [agama] di basement gedung kantor. Walaupun ngga bisa numpang tidur karena AC Musholla yang kriyep2x dan juga ngga pakai acara makan-makan, yang penting hati selalu adem sehingga kepala pun ikutan2x dingin dan pikiran pun ga kotor *lirik dahlia nun jauh di negeri Karawang sana*.
Tapi yang namanya SYAITON, memang bertebaran dimana-mana.
KungFu Panda nan sexy ini dari kemarin sudah heboh menghasut kami agar makan-makan disini, blogger narsis yang 2 kali nampang di Majalah EVE pun sampai menunda puasanya dan merelakan makan enak di hotel Grand

Karena gue udah lama ngga buka Warung bersama KGB, hari ini gw terhasut juga. walopun acara makan siang bersama ini dirutuki oleh dua genset Sharp dan calon pengarang kondang yang ngga bisa ikutan gara-gara tandatangan kontrak baru dengan salah satu penerbit bergengsi serta miss crochetting .

Ayamnya dengan bumbu kecap dibakar lalu diletakkan diatas ulekan yang telah diolesi sambal yang pedddaaaassss yang langsung dibuat as your request . Lembut sekali, (ayamnya, bukan talenannya).

Mintalah tahu goreng dan tempe cocol sebagai tambahan lalu celupin ke campuran sambal dan kecap itu. Sambalnya biar pedes tetep pengen di-cocol.

Sebenarnya menu Pak Mo ini juga ada ikan lele, cuma si Kungfu Panda udah racuni ayam, maka ayamlah yang gue pilih.

Akhiri makan siang anda dengan meneguk Es KElapa Muda, agak jauh dari boothnya Pak MO.

dan ketika membayar makan& minum kita, tidak lebih dari Rp 20.000/orang.

worth it kali untuk dicoba detik2x menjelang gajian...:))

PS : kenapa saya kasih bintang 3??? lalarnya banyak bow tapi pengamen jarang, lain kali siapin lilin sendiri deh.

my first bali trip (in year 2008)

Like I told you on my previous post, on Tuesday, I was completely all by my self. Headed for the beach, try to enjoy everything on my own.
bare foot, walk along the Kuta Beach, with the sound of wave as the music , waiting for the sunset. I just made the best out of being lonely.


After the sun has gone, walk along the narrow Poppies Lane, bought sorvenir for my colleagues back in Jakarta, and spending sometime talking to the owner of the shop.
I think when you're alone, you have to make friends with people you met, you won't feel alone anymore.
I stopped a taxi, asked him taking me anywhere *with a good food*
I ended up in Carefour hehehhe.

next morning
*feel like De Ja Vu*
I was the only banker among 25 participants, so everybody
gave me the look what-are-you-doing-here?
*okey, I'm exaggerating*

I found the birds with the same feather, ended my lonely time up in next 3 days.
But all of them were good, they'd asked me to join. *sayang aja ngga ada brondong ,*

On friday, the course ended before lunch (bisa aja niy Bp Sutadi,pengertian banget!), we hired a car that took us to Celuk (I bought a flower-silver-pendant), sukowati, tanah Lot and Jimbaran.


Late at night, we had to say good bye.
tapi pak Slamet, dan bu eliza kantornya masih di Ps, Yuni bahkan 1 gedung dengan saya. Masih besar kemungkinan untuk ketemuan lagi.
Sama Kak Grace aja niy, yang jauh, di Balikpapan tinggalnya. Kapan lagi ya ketemu.

Since my flight would be on 20.00 on on satudarday night, I hired a car to take me around.
Don't know what to do to spend the day, I remember there is mas Djaja, a colleague who just move from Jakarta to Depansar.
I sent him a text message in the middle of the night, he replied the next morning saying that he and his daughter were available. Yihhha....
Lumejen, daripada gue
We went to the zoo in Ubud area (waks, so expensivem the enterance fee is Rp 50.000/person), foto2x di Ubud (terasering---sistem pertanian khas Bali), Kintamani,
dan ends up di Pantai Lebeng...the beach that facing East, so won't see sunset here. I wanna go back here sometime again, waiting for the sunrise.
(hey, I did woke up so early in the morning --- even before dawn--- when I was in Barito River!)

Aksesnya baru dibuka, pantainya belum ada pemecah ombak, makanya ombaknya rada "kasar", penuh batu-batu. Pasirnya hitam, tapi bersih.
duh, semoga pantai ini dibiarkan seperti ini, jangan dibangun hotel dan resort lah...

Our country has all the beauty!

Akhirnya jam delapan juga. time to fly.
Ketika mendarat dan siap-siap turun, sebelum pintu pesawat dibuka, sekilas melihat penumpang lain. Ada satu keluarga kok ya familiar wajahnya.
Ah itu, teh Amel , karena blio kerap posting dengan foto, jadi hapal dengan muka keluarganya.
senengnya bisa ketemu juga akhirnya.:)

PS : why did I call this entry My first Bali trip in year 2008? Insya Allah, I'll be back here on August 8th-10th.

*Suer, gue training bukan liburan…kan ngga mungkin lagi training trus poto-poto*

more pictures are here.
