Let's cultivate the virtue!

After months, I didn't go to Vihara in Medan anymore. Today I do! With my friend, Henny, we go to Cetiya Mahasampatti.

Not because I don't like to go to vihara during this time. No, I'm not! I'm very like it! In vihara I always feel peaceful and most importantly, I can cultivate the good karma there. But usually I wake up late, and also I often get astray when I want to go there, hahhaa! As you know, Cetiya Mahasamppati is very far from my boarding house, and I rarely roamed in there area. Moreover, the streets in Medan are very difficult to memorized. Fair enough?

After that, we go to the market and mall to buy anything for Chinese New Year a few more days. New clothes, cakes, cute mandarin oranges, and also red ornaments! Huahh I have to clean and tidy my room for this. Prepare prepare prepare, because the Chinese NY will soon arrive!
I'll want to go to vihara first in that day, because there's the prayer in Mahasampatti. And after that I'll go to my family's and my friend's house. Yaiyyy, can't wait until February 3rd!

Btw, there's an event organized by PATRIA Sumut (if you want to know what's PATRIA, you can click this). I'll show it:

Udah gak jaman munafik, sok nutup-nutupin perasaan!
Okee, selama ini gue memang munafik, selalu pasang tampang gak berdosa, padahal hati gue tuh udah dongkooool abis. Pernah gak sih lo ngalamin kayak gini?

Mungkin gue perlu cerita sedikit tentang ini. Hmmph, gimana ya ngomongnya?
Jadi gini, ada lah someone yg gak perlu gue sebutin ntah siapa. Ini orang rada 'weird' dan kebetulan semua orang yg gue curhatin pun ngerasa hal yg sama. Banyak lah yg gak suka ama dese. Ya cara dese ngomong lah, cara dese cari perhatian sana sini lah, cara dese ngerendahin orang lah, udah ngerasa hebat sendiri kali tuh. Pokoknya dese tuh udah kayak oke nya aja, padahal nggak sama sekali! Lo bakal muak deh beneran kalo tau gimana orangnya.
Tapi yaudah lah gak usah ngebahas itu. Kita gak boleh kan ngehasut-hasut orang untuk sebel sama orang laen? Kalo pun ada yg mau temenan sama dese, ya bagus dong? Berarti kan dese gak perlu temenan ama gue lagi, ngekor-ngekor gue lagi! Gak punya temen lagi tau gak sih dese itu. Hhahaa, coba sih suruh dulu dese itu cari temen yg laen!

Beberapa waktu kemaren, gue memang muna. Pura-pura gak ada apa-apa ama dese. Mungkin kalian udah tau, untuk apa gue ngomongin ini. Atau malah ada orang yg nyadar kalo gue lagi ngomongin dia. Hhahaa, baguslah kalo sadar sendiri, biar gue gak usah repot-repot ngejelasin lagi.

Tadinya sih gue cuma pengen ngejaga perasaan orang aja. Tapi setelah gue pikir-pikir lagi, ngapain juga lah gue ngejaga perasaan kalo ujung-ujungnya berupa kebohongan juga. Mending gue ungkapin deh! Gak perlu secara langsung face to face kayak gitu. Seenggaknya gue udah nunjukkin ke-enggaksuka-an gue ini dengan sikap dan perbuatan, nunjukkin kalo gue gak mau terlalu dekat sama dese lagi. Semoga aja sih dese ngerasa, semoga dese lagi baca ini!

Gue cuma mau bilang, show your feeling! Bagus ataupun jelek, tunjukkin ajalah. Kejujuran itu memang pahit, menyakitkan. Jadi inget apa yg pernah dibilang Maretha,
"jadi orang baik itu susah ya."

Dari dulu gue setuju banget ama quote dia satu itu. Etha emang sabar, tapi gak semua orang bisa sesabar dia. Mungkin gue harus lebih banyak belajar buat jadi orang yg dimaksud 'baik' itu. Karena baik belum tentu bijaksana, jangan sampe kebaikan itu justru malah dimanfaatkan orang, ataupun bikin kita lebih terpuruk. Jadi, mesti lebih selektif lagi buat memilah mana kebaikan yg baik, mana yang tidak baik. Menjadi orang baik itu amatlah baik sekali, tapi akan lebih baik menjadi orang yg bijaksana. Yess, hhahahaa!


The point is --->>> menjauhi orang-orang yang kita anggap tidak perlu menjadi kawan.
Sebagai owner kehidupan masing-masing, kita harus tahu mana yg terbaik buat hidup. Hidup itu kan pilihan!

Subject, souvenirs, and alma mater!

Went to college again, and it means many tasks waiting us! Huahhhh. As you know, in this 2nd semester, all subjects are not easy as last semester. We must learn counting in chemistry subject like in high school and also do a lot of practicum everyday. Great, right?

I can't imagine if that time I pass in industrial engineering, like my first goal. Hhahaa, maybe I have to do that every day, every semester. Maybe I couldn't follow it, totally blank! But luckily, my destiny is here, in dentistry! Where there isn't many sickening lesson. Apparently I was given the best for my future. Of course I'd be grateful of it!


Btw nowadays, because of during the holidays many friends are go home, they come back again to Medan bring the souvenirs. Hhahaha, they're very kind!

A mirror form Ary, she went to Paris!

from Kuhaa, she is Malaysian
from Intan, she went to Jogjakarta!

Thanks guys!


# Just for info, finally we got our alma mater! Yaiyyy. A little weird, because usually the freshmen will got the alma mater before they start the college, but us? Yah, after many months we waited, waited long for this one:

Cool isn't it?
I think, I look like the senior? Hhahaaa.

USU's alma mater has a little bit similar with Unila's, I think. They have the dark green color. Hhahaa, go GREEN!

Segitu banyaknya orang yg gak suka sama boyband Indonesia satu ini, SMASH (ahahaa, ngapain coba gue ngebahas2 ini?). Yah, tadi pas gue nonton gosip gitu di TV, nah kebetulan ngebahas tentang ini. Sebelumnya sih gue juga udah pernah denger dari temen2, yg katanya ngejiplak lah, sok ngikut2 korea lah, norak lah, dan seribu satu macam ke-nggaksuka-an mereka. Bahkan status temen gue ada yg nyindir2 SMASH gitu deh. Ngapaen sih? Gak penting bener!

Gue gak pernah ngikutin gosip tentang boyband korea/jepang/taiwan, k-pop, atau apalah ntah! Apalagi ngeladen ngikutin gosipnya SMASH ini. Gue secara pribadi sih, emang gak suka yg namanya boyband2 rada bencong kayak gitu. Baik dari korea, ataupun Indonesia sekalipun. (Pokoknya mau bule! Hahhaaa). Tapi dari hebohnya komen orang2 tentang SMASH, gue jadi penasaran gimana sih emang boyband nya? Segimana noraknya sih emang? Terus, gue googling deh.

Setelah gue liat, ternyata apa yg dijelek-jelekin orang gak sebegitu jeleknya loh. Personilnya gak norak2 bener kok, gak jelek, yah masih pantes lah jadi artis. Dance nya juga gak jelek2 amat. Semua biasa aja, gak ada yg perlu dicela dan gak ada yg perlu dipuji juga. Nah, jadi apa sih yg diributin? Emang band2 dari Korea itu udah bagus apa? Sori kalo ada k-poppers yg baca ini, dan mungkin bakalan tersinggung ama postingan ini. Tapi apa salahnya sih ngehargain kreativitas orang? Semau-mau merekalah mau buat musik kayak apa. Selama masih wajar, yaudalah let it go aja.

Oke, gue ngomong begini bukan berarti gue ngebela atau karena gue ngefans loh ya ama mereka! NO NO NO! Gue cuma positif thinking aja sama apa yg diomongin orang. Gak cuma untuk SMASH doang, tapi buat band2 lain juga yg selalu dicela orang, kayak Kangen Band gitu2. Biarin lah mereka berkreasi sesuka hatinya. Daripada banyak ribut ngomongin mereka, malah pusing gue jadi dengernya!

Intinya, ngaca dulu sebelum ngejelekkin orang. Diri sendiri udah bagus apa belom? Boyband yg asli dari korea itu apa emang udah pantes buat dielu-elukan?

From POSTER to COVER

My 2nd project has been released,

For now, I make the DIY (Do It Yourself) Project: "From POSTER to COVER"
New semester means new book!

If our books are nice, then we will be more spirit while learning. You can be creative if you think so. From any material, especially for waste paper, because you should apply for 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). From the newspaper, wrapping paper, or even a poster!
Check it out, guys:

I choose this tennis athlete poster, Novak Djokovic from Serbia!

Nice book!



PS: You can also add the plastic cover to make it look more attractive!



Tomorrow is our 1st day to study again, our 2nd semester will be start! Huahhh, so lazy to face that. But we should! We should wake up earlier again, go to campus again, and study study study for the better IP later!

Thanks for supporting. See you guys on my next project! :)

BOAT

Yaiyyy, had a fun holiday yesterday!

Went to Parapat, Lake Toba with Aryani Agiza, Iqbal Sirait, Aulia Suci, and Vivi, with a backpack each. Backpacking time! It's about 5 hours from Medan, and we went there by a bus, a very crowded bus. The only thing that's not fun of this trip is the BUS! I often see in TV that many bus with many hucksters hanging around on the bus. But I never have myself experienced about it before, and yesterdey I was! Hhahaaa. Also the driver, driving it very fast on the winding road. And as you know, beside of the road is the abyss. So scary!

I've ever been here before, when FKG's inauguration. And the view in Lake Toba is still very very amazing as before. What a beautiful lake! If you're a photographer, I recommend this place. You have to go here, and make some photo shoot.


So far, I enjoyed this holiday. Just 1 day, and not much that we can do. Sitting on the edge of lake, sharing and talking about anything of us. Hanging around, boat, cross the lake. We go to Samosir Island, especially Tomok area. There's our friend there, Faber Sidabutar. Yes of course we met him there. Visit the museum, etc. So poor, we can't watch 'Sigale-gale' Show, because of the time. Sigale-gale is something like puppet, that can be dancing.


PS: Another photos are in Iqbal's camera, but he haven't upload yet. Hmpph, maybe someday I'll post the photos! See you.

Yes I am!


Go to campus today, just for attending the guidance for the lectures. It needs 20 students to help them, to demonstrate the group discussion about a case. Just acting, but we should be serious of course. Hmmph, not bad. The lecturers are also friendly. At least, I meet my friends again, instead of do nothing at home, right?

I will traveling tomorrow with Ary and friends, backpacking! Only about North Sumatra, maybe Samosir or Brastagi. Yess, I can't wait, hope it will be fun. Later I'll tell you. Have a nice trip, Dress!

My home is so far!

Still have 1 week holiday! But I haven't anything to do.
What I can do is just sleep, read the novel, watching TV or DVD, doing sports, and also clean up the room. Huahhh, so boring!

A lot of my friends are already back to their hometown again after their KRS form is already done. And they leave me alone here, huahhuahh, I want to cry! I can't come back home, because my home is in Lampung, very far from Medan, and need the expensive cost. Impossible!
At least, I still have some friends here who will accompany me to go around. Like me and Ary yesterday, we went to Sun Plaza (the one of the biggest mall in Medan) to watched movie and each bought a cup of frozen yogurt!
We watched this film:
The Tourist
It has the unpredicted ending! Cool.


By the way 2 days ago, I got an accident. Actually it's not too severe, but excited enough, hhaaaha.
It happened when I was driving the motorcycle. I saw my friend and her boyfriend beside of me, and I said "HI" to them. But suddenly there was a car brake quickly in front of me, and finally there was that such unwanted accident! They help me to cool down my shock, really really shocked. I felt supple. And my motorcycle fender was broken because of that. Wahh GREAT!

So I need to repair my motorcycle (BEAT) tomorrow. I will bring it to the police insurance, and after that go to the service station. Hope it will be fixed!

Tired, sleepy, headache, lazy.

Tired, sleepy, headache, and lazy.
Yes, that's all I feel now. I'm here, Medan, arrived this afternoon. Back to my boarding house again, and I found it's very very dirty, a lot of cobwebs and dust! Of course, more or less it's about 1 month I leave it. Hhahaa, so neglected, pity of it!
Oke, this time to be autonomous, independent!
No more spoiled,
no more glamorous,
no more lazy,
no more complain.
Now, this is your life, dress!
You should be able to accept the reality.

I had to transit at Batam too apparently, at Hang Nadim Airport. I guess, this airport is very nice and great. The one of the most beautiful airport in Indonesia.
Huahh, but do you know what I was thinking first? I think that I was wrong on the airplane! Furthermore, this is my first time here. Hhahahaaa.
Luckily, it's not, just transit. Hhahaa, you can imagine that it's the real. Maybe I should wait until tomorrow to arrived at Medan. Or even pay anymore, wawaawaaaw!


Hmpph, actually we started studying again on January 24th, still more than 1 week anymore. But I come earlier to fill the KRS form. I hear that a lot of my friends are already done about this.
And me? Ohh I don't know, not yet started, even I don't understand how to fill! Huahhh crazy on me! Whereas, Saturday is the last day to complete it, so I only have 2 days more. Yess, certainly I'm a great woman, very very great until drop! Hhahaaa.

--->>> So, I have to go to campus tomorrow, and must take care the KRS that I don't understand. GREAT!

Meet the naughty's


Hang out together with my Junior High School's friends: Yulia Indriani, Jecklin Angelina Manopo, Catherine Febrina and also my best friend ever, Meliana Stansyah! Gossips, eat, and sing some songs at Inviz Karaoke.

They reminded me of my naughtiness in JHS, when we were still the naughty little girls. The civilian girls! Hahaa, I really miss that moment. Nowadays, we are pupils, become adults, and can't do some naughtiness like past anymore. Yahhh!


I know this is my last day at Lampung, tomorrow I must go back to Medan again. Tonight I want to packing, packing, and packing. Huahhh, so lazy! But today, I have a nice day with them. Thank you guys! Thanks also for all of you who accompanied me when I'm here (Lampung). You are very kind! Bye, see you 5-6 months later if I come back for my next holiday.

For my Medan friends, wait for me or my call tomorrow. I need your help to fill my KRS form. Really, I don't know what I have to do to take care of it. Hahhaaa.

Should I go away from home again?

Udah 1 bulan rupanya gue libur kuliah, dan udah 1 bulan juga gue di Lampung. Huahhh, cepet yaa, gak berasa banget deh! Kamis besok gue balik lagi ke kota anak gahul itu, Medan! Ihh sumpah ya males bener loh gue nyaaa.
I'm afraid can't adjust anymore there,
after all at home I always spoiled,
after all at home there's always my family,
after all at home I always use the luxurious facilities,
after all at home I always eat the nutritious food.
I'm afraid of all!
Huahh, so lazy to come back. Really!
Memang, rumah itu selalu ngangenin, Lampung apalagi! Hahaaha, setelah selama ini gue tinggal di Lampung dan selalu ngata-ngatain Lampung itu gak asik lah, kota kecil lah. Tapi gimana juga Lampung memang tanah kelahiran gue, harus dibanggakan juga.
Kenyataannya, sekarang Lampung bukan kota se-kecil dulu lagi loh. Udah banyak yg berubah disini, banyak mall, banyak barang branded masuk Lampung, jalanan juga udah pada macet, sumpek. Yang paling penting, bahasa nya gak aneh-aneh kayak di kota anak gahul itu loh. Hhahha keren ya sekarang mah, udah bisa bersaing!

Sebenernya, masih belom puas gue liburan disini. Tapi yah gimana lah, namanya juga gue mau kuliah lagi. Apalah ya! Seenggaknya udah cukup deh ketemu temen-temen lama disini, yg mungkin semua orang juga punya kesibukan masing-masing, kayak temen-temen gue itu. Gak mungkin juga kan gue lama lama di Lampung terus ngajakin temen gue jalan-jalan terus. The life must goes on, guys!

By the way, gue sempet foto bareng mami papi ama adek-adek aneh gue:

Visiting the colourful prison!


Today, I visited our beloved school, SDB - Sekolah Darma Bangsa (the colourful prison I called it). With Ninda Agistia, Oktaria Triranti, and Faraztya Purnama Sari.
Miss them so much, miss Gauss class, miss the school, miss the teachers and staffs, miss the juniors, and all the parts of SDB!

We meet and greet the teachers, juniors, look around, they have been many changes apparently! Yes, SDB always changed every year. I can't imagine if someday, maybe 10 years later I will visit SDB, all changed! A lot of new teachers there, because every year they have the new teachers. Even the principal has been changed. Huaahhh, what a rich school! Hhahahaa.

We also join the class again! Hhahaa. We join on Conseling class with Ms.Mirra, our (Gauss) homeroom, in Galileo Class. Miss that moment, when we must studied to prepare National Exam. Hhahaa, but it's the past. And we play UNO with Mr.Fajrin! Miss this moment too, when Gauss gathered for play this card. Hhahahaaa amazing!


Ohya, I just saw our year book. Hmm, not bad, but also not good. Yah, doesn't match with our expectation actually. Hhahaa, but it's oke I think. At least, it can remind us the memories and the fun time of us, with Gauss, the founder member. Really really want to come back school!

Gossipers

Today missed off with my old friends (Svarnadipa's friends): Chintya Rosadi, Meta, and Dana Perdana. Only a briefly, just eat sunday ice cream together at McD, Central Plaza. Have more gossips and laughs. Because I have to picking up my sister from her course after that. Hhahaa, during I'm here in Lampung maybe I considered like a personal driver. :p
Thanks to you, guys! Thanks for being my friends.

By the way, I found this cool picture from Devianart:


OMG, they're very cute!
I don't know it's about best friend or about sisterhood. But when I see this pic, I got to thinking that I really wanted to have the western children. Hahahaa, seriously! Don't laugh!

Not easy as turning your palm!


My coach teach us about level of performance, how become a champion. And coincidence he gives an example about the 'big body'. Considering that I also in thinner program, I'm interested to post it here. First, he said,
"When I want to be a champion, then I have to thin down my body. Do you think it easy?
NO! It's not easy, guys!
The consequences are: you have to stop eating the delicious food, you have to do regular exercise, you should sleep enough, don't stay up anymore. It's very hard to become a champion, guys! "
It makes me realized that a good result must go through the hard struggle first. Second, he told us about mentality,
"We have to assume that our rival has the same power with us, not better and not worse! We are same! It's about mentality and it's all about how you defend it."
In fact, what I have done so far? Even I felt difficult to thin down my body!
Mental of champion? Still I have that?

Something that I learned today is: we cannot possibly find whatever we want suddenly fall from the sky. It's a BIG IMPOSSIBLE! But we can get it if there is willingness and determination. Be sure about that.

Run was changed to swim

Like my determination yesterday, I plan to jogging at Unila this morning. But it was canceled, because I turned up to oversleep, hahaa! So I just swam this afternoon to replace it, with my brother, Thomas Erdyka P.

at Citra Laguna swimming pool

PS: There's an accident on the street when we want to go home. Maybe I don't want to say here. And unortunately, I met the fussy woman and very quasi-rich! Huahh, you just know it.

Minggu Sehat

Di Bandarlampung memang gak pernah ada project khusus go green kayak 'Car Free Day' gitu-gitu. Tapi sebenernya, banyak masyarakatnya yg udah sadar akan kebutuhan olahraga. Kalo Minggu pagi tuh banyak orang yg lari-lari, naek sepeda, juga senam di beberapa taman olahraga. Sebenernya gak cuma hari minggu aja sih, hari biasa juga ada aja orang yg olahraga disitu.

Nah tadi pagi, untuk pertama kalinya lagi sejak gue pulang kampung, gue kembali ke rutinitas gue jaman dulu, olahraga pagi-pagi! Gue bangun pagi, trus pergi sendirian, dan gue memilih ke lapangan PKOR karena tempatnya gak gitu jauh dari rumah. Dulu jamannya gue masih jadi petenis kalo kesini untuk latihan fisik, entah bareng temen-temen ataupun sendirian. Tapi sekarang gue kesini buat tujuan khusus, yaitu nurunin berat badan! Belakangan banyak banget orang yang ngomentarin body gue,  nambah gendut katanya. Padahal sebenernya nggak loh, gue nimbang yah emang segitu-gitu aja dari masih SMA. Lucu kan!

Oke balik ke topik, kali ini gue mau promosiin Lampung nih.


Lapangan PKOR
Disini enaknya, selain bisa jogging, naek sepeda, ada stadion bola, ada juga senam massal ibu-ibu gitu. Ohya perlu diketahui bahwa PKOR ini salah satu tempat wisata kuliner di Lampung. Jadi kan asik tuh, abis olahraga lo bisa icip-icip makanan enak! Hhahaa, jadi nambah gendut lagi! Kadang juga banyak Anak Gaul Lampung nongkrong disitu buat maen skaters. Kadang ada festival band atau Clothing Expo malah! Selaen itu, lo bisa olahraga sambil lirak-lirik karena biasanya banyak atlet keren yang latihan fisik disitu. HAHAHHAA! Ehh tapi gue nggak gitu loh ya, gue sih beneran mau olahraga disini.

Tempat olahraga laen di Bdrlampung misalnya Stadion Pahoman, Taman Dipangga, atau Unila. Disitu juga banyak orang yg olahraga kalo minggu gini. Dan Pahoman juga salah satu tempat wisata kuliner loh, ada batagor yg mantep abis! Juga biasa tempat nongkrong anak-anak club mobil yg gaul-gaul. Tapi kalo gue pribadi sih, favorit di PKOR. Soalnya gue udah biasa disana, hehehee.

--->>> Besok, gue mau lari pagi di Unila. Semoga sih bisa bangun pagi, amiiin!

New year's eve party!


Celebrated the new year's eve with my big family, The Dochen's Family (The name of my father's family). This is the first time since we didn't do this again for a long years. We had a simple party in Raja Kuring Restaurant, dinner, and also watched the fireworks in the town.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011 ALL!
Hope this year will be better than last.
