Happy Xmas

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone. Sorry for this late post. But it's never too late to spread the greetings, ain't it?

Ok.. Christmas was 3 days ago but I wanna share some stories. I promised myself to brings the Christmas spirit back from hibernation (my last Christmas present was almost 10 years ago). So, I decided to pull off Santa. On Xmas eve, I shopped for the whole family (yea, my dad, mom, aunt, granma, bro, sis and a cousin) just under 2 hours. Then, I wrapped it all up by myself at late night for 3 hours (and also watched Janice Dickinson's Christmas special). The Big moment came up at the morning. It was such a blast. I felt happy.. and hopefully what I did for them appreciated.

I also kinda nervous right now cuz in just less than 3 weeks, I'm gonna be on the other side of the world (a.k.a. States). I have several stages or nervousness. First is visa. I have to go for it this Monday which make my stomach turns upside down. I'm stressing myself out (hopefully I don't messed things up). Second is the stuffs that I should bring. That problem kinda makes me nervous because I'm afraid I forgot to bring important things which will be awful If I did. The last one is America itself. It makes me nervous. Seriously, I have no idea what Boston will gonna be like. I've been to America but I never been to East Coast, yet. Well, hopefully I can through with this, like I did 4 times before.

Anyways, It's still holiday.. and please be happy and again, Happy holidays for all of ya.. Next is New Year! the party will be held in my house! stay tuned for photos! (I'm planning to make sushi :P)

Au Revoir, 4 now

Holiday Spirits!

Today's been pretty lame. Since my parents were out for 2 days (but they're back already), I wasn't permitted to go out at any reason.. except for going to nearby places. So me and my bro decided to made some meals.. for the whole day. The sidedishes in particular. But, to make the story kinda 'nice', I tell u about My day!

Saturday, 22 December '07 (happy mother's day!)

I started off the day woke up at 7.. to pee. Because the weather still cold and cloudy, I crawled back to bed and slept for another hours (5 to be exact). Then I ate noodles for lunch (courtesy my favorite cooking God, grandma!) with charsiu (barbequed red pork). After that.. I played Wii for a while, until I got bored and decided to get the holiday spirit on: make some foods! my bro made some delicious crepes with caramelized brown sugar and cinammon apple fillings, SO great, while I made some cookies. Thanks to my bestie, Betty Crocker.

For dinner, My bro made some fried cassave with brie cheese and smoked beef fillings. Another yummy snacks. We ate charsiu (again!) with ikan bilis tumis cabe (sooo good) with vegies and brown rice.

Later that night, after the whole day of eating, we still want more (especially me). So, before we watched a Rush Hour movie (the third), we decided to made some meals. I made sandwiches with bacon, smoked beef and cheese with mustard & ketchup, while he made egg nog; a traditional American holiday drink made off egg white, egg yolk, cream, lots of sugar and bourbon (in my case, Cognac!).

Actually, today was not that bad. I just missed my friends (you know who you are!) and I missed the whole concept of Holiday joy and spirit. But my goal is to make everyone's happy this Christmas, since it's Jokker, Rockey and Russel's first Xmas.

Btw, I wanna share some Holiday tracks for you to hear (or download): Sarah McLachlan - "The First Noel", Josh Groban - "The First Noel", Michael Buble - "I'll Be Home For Christmas", Christina Aguilera - "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas".

Okie Dokie, Let the joy begins!

See U

Carbonara Day

Today pretty regular to me.
Yesterday, my Grandma admitted to the hospital due to muscle complications and some heart things. But now she's okay and still in the hospital. Hopefully, by Monday we can get her outta there (the doctor's kinda ignorant to me and he bothers me and my aunt). Anyway..

10:11 am - 3 pm Today I got up a lil' late. I always a lazy in the morning. So, I went to the school agent at Gading.. filled up all the form for Visa applications. Then me and my aunt went to Dapur Solo to grab lunches (we ate Nasi gudeg, nasi urap and sate ayam! yes!). Russell is the new star! literally everywhere. He grabs attention anywhere he goes! hehe

4 pm onwards Me and bro went off to Senayan. He wanted to know where's the concert (classical) will take place tommorow (it's at Istora Senayan). So I planned to cook dinner tonight. I wanted to make Carbonara pasta, Prawn salad with honey-mustard dressing and Ben & Jerry's Cinnamon roll ice cream. At Senayan I bought all the ingredients and also checked out the sales at TopShop, Zara etc. (It's so crowded! I end up stayed there less then 3 minutes).

Me and bro cooked the food and then, after 2 hours, feasts on those fat-full dinner! and have some well-deserved wines! yep!

Tommorow's gonna bring another things to me. Hopefully I'm ready. To be honest, for the next days, anything can happen. Either right or wrong.

See ya!

Trouble Sleeping

Hey! long time no see..

It's December already and yeah.. I have a lot to tell.

First off, Right now it's 4:40 AM and I still can't sleep (well after writing this blog then).. Actually, I already felt sleepy at 10:00 PM.. then as time went by, I didn't feel sleepy anymore, instead, I felt 'awake' (thanks to Amazing Race Asia and my sucky internet connection). At 12:30 I just fed up with this internet connection. I was like, I just gotta do this! so I checked everything and found the problem. The phone cable isn't attached well.. It's kinda loose. So I just tied the cable with wire and the rest is history.

Btw, I'm going to U.S.A. on January 2008.. but, to be honest I can't really spill all the details yet since everything except the class entry (which is Jan 22). So, I will go to Boston and gonna spend around 2 years there (and I think I would not go back home for a looong time!)

Okay then.. anyone who visited this blog please leave a shoutout! OK??
Best wishes!
See ya!
