I just wanna thank

I was just thinking for awhile and remembered when I was in elementary school, I have a teacher who always punished me when I didn't obey the rules.
And could you guess what punishment she gave to me?
Writing on papers.
A sentence that rewrited for about 100 times!
Example, when I didn't do my homework. She punished me to write this sentences: " I promise to do all my homework at home." And I had to write that 100times.

Since that, everytime I had homework, I always remembered my writing (which was my punishment), then I finished my homework...haha
What a simple thing!

Now in my real life, I want to adapt that "life lesson" I've got.
That's why I want to try my teacher's way.
I writed " Thank You Lord" for many times. full-hearted.
So, whenever I feel sad and upset; disappointed and dissatisfied; poor and weak, I will always remember to thank to Lord, and be grateful.
Because everything is happened for a reason and I believe it's the best way to grow me up to the fullest.

I just wanna thank to Lord for everything I've got and everything that happened in my life. Everything.

Music Boost

Tonight is special.
Because it's Wednesday.
That's it?
No, no, wait.. I have a reason why Wednesday is a special day.

This noon  at the office, my friend, Pieta, asked me and Yuniar to join her to Loca Coffe Club, Kemang (Jakarta).
I said, " Ok, I've no plan yet either!"
So, me, Pieta and Yuniar went to Loca & met Ferry (Pieta's boyfriend) and some friends, Endah & Rhesa.
Pieta ever told me about Endah & Rhesa, that they are great musicians. Endah is vocalist & playing guitar, and Rhesa on bass.

It's about 9 pm & they prepared to play... I'm curious ;)
They sat on the stage & started to perform.
And you know what...
I was 'hypnotized'!

Oh my God! I saw a perfect live acoustic music! With good sound & great atmosphere. People started coming to watch them. They both were great!

After an hour performing, they had break time & another acoustic band filled in. They were great too. We enjoyed the music so much!

Then Pieta said, "Every Wednesday night, there are live acoustic performances here, at Loca. It would become so crowded, because it's a special day."

" Woow...yeah, it's special. Thanks for inviting me, Pie :)"

Two thumbs up for Endah & Rhesa (
Big salute to you two!

a cup of inspiration

I've posted this picture as my header image, but I wanna share it again... 

Basically I'm a coffee lover, especially cappuccino. While thinking & finding concept for my design project, i'd like to be accompanied with a cup of coffee, it is my 'friend'.
Though one of my friend said that drinking too much coffee isn't good, I still love it. haha. But I listen to him, so I minimize my coffee drinking quantity,,,

If a cup of coffee make me happy,
then a cup of inspiration wouldn't be enough.

Pangandaran Beach

it was painted from this photo, "without me" ;)

On November 2008, I travelled to Pangandaran Beach, Java, Indonesia.
It's 7 hours way from Jakarta with car, what a long journey!
But I totally enjoyed it!

I sat on the beach, saw the blue sky, felt the wind, and heard the sound of the wave... 
what a life...

My dad in portrait

If there is a song

by Ricardo & friends,

then it would be right.
