It's Never Enough

I'm the worst person to be told enough of something, because I never feel enough of anything, especially the good stuffs. I'm a big believer on "there's never enough of a good thing". So yeah, like you guys didn't notice, I do overindulge myself during my stay here, and stuff myself up with shopping and foods.

I don't know why, but I think I just can't help it. I do get happy from that - and it becomes creepy. I think I get addicted to what makes me happy. For some reason I can't stop eating; I found great happiness in it and I refuse to let go (big problem if you want to reach your weight goal), also I really can't help in buying things that's, let's just say not really necessary and there's the internet 'addiction'. The last one, I just can't help it period. I will go online from as soon as I wake up until right before I decided to go to bed. It's ridiculous! thanks to Youtube, Facebook and all those gossip blogs.

I'm not a wise man on this one, but I do want to have control of myself, discipline. The 'D' word is really, really tough for me, because I used to get that a lot when I was a kid and I don't like being under control, so I used to let go of myself once in a while. But now it's kinda too much and I have to pay the price. This is just another reminder for me everytime I go online.

One thing that never enough for me is holiday. I just never feel it's enough. I still remember vividly, my first arrival in Jakarta May 23rd morning. It was awesome and now, my I'm only 19 days apart from going back to Boston. I'm so sad, yet I wanna go back to Boston to, for the sake of reliving my memories for the past 1,5 years there. I know I'm weird. I never feel enough of anything.

At Midnight

It's 12.01 AM right now, and I don't really want to close my eyes and off to dreamland yet. So here I am. Well, for the last couple of days, I've been going out with my friends, and had fun. I think I'm overindulged myself, went out to karaoke and ate loads of stuff. I'm fat already. But you're not gonna hear me bitchin' and moanin' about my everlastin weight issue. Not tonight. I wanna talk about what I like to do.. at midnight. Nothing x-rated or whatever, it's more like what I enjoy to do, by myself or with others (as a kind reminder, there's no sexual innuendoes goin' on).

First I enjoy late night chats with friends. I must admit sometimes we don't have topics to cover, but I somehow enjoyed it much. Maybe the 'bonding' factors that made me enthusiastic. Then, I love watching DVDs! especially the feel-good ones: Pirates of The Caribbean or Sweeney Todd to name a few. Movies that somewhat cheesy or lame, but makes you feel good, sorta like that. The guiltiest pleasure ever, of course, eating late at night. The later the night, the more pleasant the dining experience. I don't know why, but maybe the fun factor of eating at night makes you happy? Oh, besides that, I like to update myself on latest musics! Cause they usually come out at nights.

Speaking of musics, I recommend these following songs for you playlist! Happy listening: Madonna - "Celebration", Shakira - "She Wolf", Michael Jackson - "Ben", James Morrison - "Man In The Mirror", Nelly Furtado - "Manos Al Aire"

MIXER August '09: Katy Perry

She's one of the hottest breakout female artists of the year, and she's cute! Katy Perry's songs have been played countlessly and gained so many good reviews (and fans too) and of course I wouldn't miss her to be on the cover!

In The Land of Merlion

For the last couple of days, I spent the day and nights in Singapore, my ultimate favorite holiday destination. Why Singapore? you may ask. Well, Singapore was the second overseas country I've visited in my life (after Sydney, Aussie). Besides, Singapore has a lot to offer: great foods, great shops and.. that's pretty much it. However, that's all I need.

I went there with my bestie Ingrid (who's a Singapore resident at heart) along with her bf. We went to see Sentosa which was excite me the most, cause there's a rollercoaster under construction and I knew it's the upcoming UNIVERSAL Studio! aha! Since we stayed on different hotels, we got different plans too; I spent most of the time shopping and cruising around Orchard (which btw, has a new mall ION which was fantastic). I managed to picked up some goodies along the way (my fave, silver Puma by Yasuhiro Mihara). I also gained some serious pounds, which to me kinda questionable. Because, I've walked thousands of miles, I climbed my way to the hotel every freaking day and I ate less food! So I don't give a damn no more on that.

So overall it was fun, wild and bittersweet. Can't wait for another trip!

Another Tragic Events

Two bombings occured in Jakarta this morning, in two of the most luxurious hotels in Jakarta (Ritz-Carlton & J.W. Marriott, which restaurant is my favorite). It breaks my heart, cause for obvious reasons, there's deaths and once again, Jakarta is not safe any longer. I just wanna say that my prayer goes out to those family who lost their loved ones.

My Favorite Things (Deux)

This is the second installment of "My Favorite Things", I called it Favorite Things summer edition (last time was, April edition, fyi). Anyway, to clear things up, this list was made out of boring circumstances about what I like at this moment. It could be a good reference though or simply, a fun thing to read.

1. Basic Black
I just love anything black since I was a kid, but now it's like I'm rediscovering black all over again. I'm crazy for basic black t-shirt, or basic black shirt, or black leather jackets or bags. I even bought a black swim pants! Black will never dies and will always live.

2. Driving Around
Yes, driving car has never been this good! (After 1,5 years without it, things could be a little bit out of control).

3. Sushi
Sushi has always been on my favorite menus since 1997 (the first time I tried this raw delicacies). But now I'm an official addict. Since the first week of my arrival here in Jakarta, I frequently stop by at my favorite sushi restaurant in Indo, Sushi Tei. Must try: jumbo dragon roll.

4. Marc Jacobs Jeans
I bought that jeans exactly 2 days before I went back to Jakarta. It's still my favorite jeans ever. The most comfortable jeans i've ever owned.

5. Stay at Home
Staying at my Sunter house has never been this good. Regular activities such as, playing Wii, getting lazy on the sofas, hanging out at my mom's workshop, playing with dogs, eating home-cooked meals (and the list still goes on), have become very exciting.

6. Sunglasses
I'm addicted to my RayBan wayfarer and MJ's aviator. Can't get enough of em.

7. Twitter
Truly addictive. The telegram for millennium era!

8. Fro-Yo
Well, i'm just a little bit late (well, way too late) for this frozen treats. Frozen yoghurt with mochi is the greatest invention after cookie dough ice cream! (recommended place: Sour Sally).

9. Karaoke
My favorite activity, resurrected! Key tracks: "I'll Be There" (Jackson 5) & "You Give Love A Bad Name" (Bon Jovi)

10. Jokker-Rockey
Of course, for obvious reason. The reason why I can't wait to go back to Jakarta. The first day I'm arrived at home, I was very tired, but then soon all of it went away, thanks to the furry buddies (I was on 30+ hrs flight, so). I took em out for walks around the complex or wherever. Took Rockey to a dentist, despite too much pain for Rockey, it was a fun trip. However, I do feel sad, cause time will fly so fast.

Did July To Me?

Ok that title was a lamer. Anyway. I'm just in the mood of a new post so, I thought a "nice & fun" title would be, of course, nice & fun.

I'm just finished open my Facebook page and played some games. As soon as i closed the window tab, I'm thinking.. what did they use Facebook for? Of course for reconnecting with friends, get in touch and all that jazz. Well that's boring excuses. I have conclusion what's the "real" purposes of using Facebook! here's the top 5!

1. Stay In Touch With Friends (a.k.a. Collecting people)
Yeah, of course, the stay-in-touch part is true. But these days, I saw lots of my friends, somewhat "collecting" the people. Means that they just accepted friends request without considering or whatnot. I mean, in real life, nobody would be really have that much of friends as much as 2000 friends. That's redonculous.

2. For the sake of having a Facebook page.
Read: people wants to be updated with what's hot right now, at this very minute.

3. Stalking
(This one's for the FB addict) The reason of having so many friends, beside of "stay in touch" with them, we want to stalk the hell out of em. We just know what happen with them, the latest photos in the bar, getting artsy and shits. People buy them!

4. Competition
Well, as much as you denying it, people somehow competing to show each other (or people) how much they own friends. The bigger the number the merrier.

5. Self Expression
You know, photos, status. Show off a abit. (Hey, you like doing that too don't cha)

Well, that's just what I thought about facebook-ing. What do u think? or can you come up with another 5 reasons?
