Laugh

10/12/13


I find it kinda weird when people said I or someone else laugh too much, or when people said "its not that funny, why did you laugh that much?" 
I believe when God created the ability to laugh for human He never set the limit on how much you can laugh even when you laugh until your tummy hurts you can still go on. But of course yeah when terrible things happen its quite improper to laugh, but basically you can never over-laugh at something that funny. Remember that laughing makes you healthier and keeps you young.
So keep laughing my friend! And don't tell us that we laugh too much!

TUH.

Haiiiiii! Actually have no idea what should I post so this is gonna be quiet random tbh. Anyway I found this pic and so yeahhh here it is. Its all from top to bottom are taken by me, my dad, and my bro and also edited by me, i kinda like how the result is.

A few days ago, I just subscribed to JubileeProject's youtube channel and I felt so blessed that I accidentally found their channel. Because its not only that they made a very good quality videos but almost all of their video have a deep and inspiring message for the viewers. So you guys should watch their videos and subscribe too!!

Ohya I'm currently listening to Dreaming by Smallpools and its awesomely nice. The music video was also already on youtube so check them out guysss!



they say it was the hardest

18/10/13

*this post is written using Bahasa*


“They say the first time is always the hardest or the toughest, but they forgot that sometimes the first time is the most exciting and the most memorable.”




Jadi minggu kemarin tepatnya 12 oktober, gw pergi ke lampung. Tujuan pergi kesana sih bukan buat liburan sih tapi karena kangen sama bokap yang sendirian disana. Yak dan dikarenakan si Mentari dan Bintang sibuk dengan aktifitas mereka yang super padat akhirnya gw pergi sendirian. Kebetulan nyokap juga udah duluan cabut ke Lampung dengan pesawat. 

Sebenarnya kepergian gw kali ini diluar rencana itu semua diawali ketika Rabu pagi gw dikasitau kalau hari senin tanggal 14 sekolah gw libur, dengan gesit gw pun laporan ke nyokap “Ma, aku nyusul ke Lampung yaa!” Dan rabu malam itu juga gw langsung beli tiket damri yang berangkat  hari Jumat malam (fyi, bis tujuan Lampung Cuma ada jam 8 malam) tapi ternyataaaa hari kamisnya gw dapat berita kalau hari sabtu gw ada pengambilan nilai di sekolah. Sontak gw pun panik! Oh nooo! Nah kebetulan hari kamis kelas gw beres 12.45  gara-gara ada rapat guru tapi jam 2 siang gw masih ada pelajaran tambahan, gw pun menyempatkan diri untuk ngacir ke loket damri buat nuker tiket yang hari sabtu malam. Emang namanya jodoh, masih tersisa satu kursi buat yang hari sabtu ituuu! Eits tapi tidak lupa gw ngecek dulu tuh yang duduk sebelah gw siapa, ternyata dia berjenis kelamin wanita. Wah gw jadi makin excited deh ada temen rumpi selama perjalanan.

Gw memilih untuk naik bus damri dari Bogor karena lebih irit dan efisien dibandingkan dengan naik pesawat. Karena kalau naik pesawat rutenya berarti terminal Damri - Bandara Soekarno hatta - Bandara Raden Inten - Rumah papa total waktu yg dibutuhkan adalah 4 jam belum kehitung macet yaaa dan kalian tau sendiri jakarta macetnya gimana apalagi gw berangkatnya dikala ada libur kejepit. Karena libur kejepit itulah harga tiket pesawat meningkat drastissss udah macam mau ngerampok dompet orang yaa. Sedangkan kalau naik damri cukup dengan 185rb udh bisa sampai dengan selamat sentosa di rumah papa.

Jadi yang duduk di samping gw namanya Vira, dia orang Lampung and recently lagi kuliah di IPB jurusan kimia. Rambutnya panjang sampai pinggang dan diurai bak putri duyung Marina yang di telenovela filipina, asli no hoax nih gw. Terus dia suka banget warna pink. Ya begitulah kira-kira gambaran umum teteh Vira ini. Ohiya dan satu lagi, gw gatau ini gw nya yang lemah atau dia nya yang super strong, tapi teteh Vira ini adalah manusia berdarah panas, with no doubt. Bayangin aja nih gw yang udah pake jaket, selimut, selendang, dan kaos kaki aja masih gemetaran kedinginan sedangkan teteh Vira yang cuma pake kaos, jaket, dan celana jeans tanpa additional clothes lainnya masih sempet bilang “Gerah ya disini!” gila mann, waktu dia ngomong gitu rasanya pengen gw banjurin freon ac!! Tapi ternyata perjalanan ini diluar perkiraan saya saudara-saudara, yang tadinya gw udah seneng karena bakalan ada temen ngobrol ternyata teteh Vira lebih sering tidur dibanding melek. Jadinya gw ikutan tidur juga deh.

Tapi walaupun begitu, selain menginjakkan kaki di tanah Sumatra hal lainnya yang gw alami untuk pertama kalinya dalam perjalanan ini adalah naik kapal Ferry. Pernah sih dulu naik kapal laut waktu gw masih TK, tapi naik kapal laut sama naik ferry kan tentunya beda dong! Kalau naik kapal laut bisa tidur berhari-hari di kapal, kalau ferry kan bentar doang trus sensasi waktu nunggu bis nya ngantri buat masuk ke kapal itu beda aja deh pokonya.

Ohya dan nyebrang dari pelabuhan Merak ke pelabuhan Bakuheni cuma kurleb tiga jam saja. Tapi kalau nyebrang di malam hari dijamin ga bakal kerasa apalagi kalau emg doyan tidur. Saran gw sih nyebrang siang hari, pemandangannya lebih pol, lu bisa merasakan keindahan Selat Sunda yang menghubungkan laut jawa dan lautan hindi. Ohya jadi di lantai 1 kapal ferry itu digunakan untuk parkir kendaraan-kendaraan bermotor, nahhh terus di lantai 2 nya itu ada live konser dangdut sodara-sodara. Tapi gw tau mengenai hal ini saat kunjungan kedua gw, dan waktu itu gw nyebrang siang jam 1-an gitu, karena bosan akhirnya gw jalan-jalan berkeliling kapal. Gw puterin tuh dari lantai atas hingga sampailah di lantai bawah. WAhhh gw rada kaget sih ngeliatnya, soalnya kebanyakan cowo semua, eh tapi ada juga sih ibbu-ibu yang nonton nah lohh. Tapi karena siang hari penyanyi-penyanyinya juga makin yahut nyanyinya sambil keringetan gitu. Nah kalau yg pengalaman pertama gw ini kan gw nyebrangnya malam hari dan waktu di kapal gw tidur jadi ga sempet jalan-jalan deh, jd gw kurang tau nih kalau malam hari live concert nya ada atau tidak. 

Dan buat yang mabuk laut boleh kok minum antimo dulu bolehhh. Waktu itu sih gw jam 1 pagi masuk ferry dan ombaknya lumayan gede jadi ya rada pusing-pusing dikit. Nah kalau udah di ferry nya kalian bisa milih mau duduk  di tempat yang lesehan atau yang kelas ekonomi. Kalau di tempat lesehan tinggal bayar Rp 6.000 udah bisa duduk atau tiduran deh di tempat yang disediakan. Berhubung waktu itu udah pada penuh yang lesehannya gw pun naik ke lantai atas buat yang kelas ekonomi, kalau yang ekonomi ini gw ga mengeluarkan duit sepeser pun tapi bedanya yang ekonomi ini gabisa duduk lesehan atau tiduran jadi harus duduk gitu.

Hari minggu subuh gw sampai di Lampung dan bersama kembali dengan bokap dan nyokap yang telah menanti kedatangan anaknya tercinta ini. Sebenarnya gw ga banyak ke tempat-tempat wisata sih di Lampung, gw kebanyakan berleha-leha istirahat gitu. Kalau kalian suka ke pantai-pantai Lampung bisa masuk ke list next destination kalian, soalnya letak kota ini yang diujung Pulau Sumtra jadinya di sana banyak banget pantai yang indah-indah. Berhubung gw sekeluarga muali dari bokap, nyokap, mentari, gw, dan bintang sejak kecil tinggalnya ga pernah jauh sama pantai jadinya kita udh bosan kalau ke pantai hahaha. Baru kali ini aja nih gw tinggal di bogor yang jauh dari pantai gitu, sebelum-sebelumnya di setiap kota yang kita tempati selalu berada di pesisir pantai. Tapi di Lampung banyak juga kok tempat wisata lain selain pantai, ada Way Kambas (tapi sialnya waktu gw kesana Way Kambas lagi direnovasi dan dibuka lagi tanggal 2 Desember) trus kalau kata supir bokap ada tempat Lembah Hijau dan taman kupu-kupu katanya sih itu tempat yang sering dikunjungi dikala musim liburan tiba. Ohiya gw juga waktu itu iseng-iseng ke Novotel buat berenang, harga tiiket masuknya 100rb itu per kepala yang masuk yaaa, bukan per kepala yang berenang. Tapi view dari pool areanya cukup keren. Ya macam marina bay island versi indonesia begitu.

Kalau kalian mau ke Krakatau juga bisa tuh karena kan itu berada di Lampung Selatan. Jadi kalau dari Bakuheni ntar lanjut ke dermaga Canti trus nyebrang pake perahu kayu ke Pulau Sebesi . Tapi dari cerita orang-orang sih setau gw kalau mau ke Krakatau itu pengurusan izinnya rada rempong jadi harus bikin Surat Izin Masuk Kawasan Konservasi (SIMAKSI) Cagar Alam Krakatau yang harganya sekitar 300ribu-an, wahhhh keren amat yak.








Jadi singkat kata walaupun gw ga kemana-mana tapi Lampung patut dikunjungi banget nih. Dan jangan lupa untuk membeli kain Tapis, kain khas Lampung yaa. Dan semoga perjalanan kali ini dapat bermanfaat bagi diri gw dan bagi orang lain. Akhir kata gw ucapkan terima kasih telah membaca dan maaf bila ada salah-salah kata. Dan selamat idul adha bagi yang merayakan, anyway. Sekian terima kasih!

P.s : gw lagi lelah letih lesu buat ngepost in english. Dan berakhirlah seperti ini, harap maklum.

My brain became such a machine in this past 3 weeks. I became a thinker and overthink everything pretty much a lot. Its always "why" or "how" spinning in my brain for 24hours. Suddenly everything has a huge question mark on it and yelled at me to answer it. Once I ever read that human's brain can save 5 times more information than a set of encyclopedia. I assume that's not true. My brain was overloaded for trying to understand everything, yet still many questions I can't answer. But isn't it funny that the brain named itself  :)

Whoever invented family was really smart!

09/08/13

"In general, I guess, it can be frustrating to realize your world is very different from that around you and its sad to know whenever there's some conflict that its because you yourself are too strange and your point-of-view is too twisted, but it makes it all more comforting and exciting to have someone or some people who kind of understand the way you do in some way or another and will stand by you no matter your choice is. Man,whoever invented family was really smart."


Fyi, today is my birthday!! I'm turning 17 which is based on Indonesia's law, I'm legal now! Well so this post was dedicated for my heartwarming family. Mama, Papa, Mentari and Bintang. They're freaking awesome and basically almost my everything.

My dad was such a stubborn man and sometimes likes to act like he knows everything. But he always believes what he believes and I adore him for that. He once told me that when he was at his office, all of his hard work that he does, he did that for his family I was trying to do so too. When I was at school, every exams, homeworks, and tasks that I did, I did that to make them proud. Dad was also the one who told me to be brave to step out of my comfort zone. In 2000, our family lived in Kupang and my dad has everything in there. I mean like all of his family were there, dad has a good job, nice house, nice car, everything was good. When his boss told him that he could move out from Kupang if he want, and guess whattt? he freeze his fear and said yes! He left everything that he had, he step out of his comfort zone for his own good. If he never moved from that city, I won't be here, I won't experienced everything that I already had, and maybe I won't have a good education, because as you know in Kupang the education and the competition wasn't really that good. He's the hero!

Mom was a strong human. My dad was often out of town because of his job. So mom has to deak with us every single day without any help. thats not slightly easy, She raises us to be an independent individual, she doesnt want us to rely on her for everything. and she hates it when her kids being such a careless,she wants us to be care and creative. Its like "oh-looks-like-my-yard-gets-mess-up-so-I-have-to-sweep-it" care. When you know what you need to do and being productive instead of being a lazy pig in hot summer day.

Mentari was a good big sis. She always looks after me and Bintang. Every time she went to a good restaurant or cafe, she always brought us some of the food. She was the one who made me understand that sushi is yummy. But honestly I hate her when she was like grumbling and cursing at the end of the day about how much tasks that she had to do for her college, while the only thing she does all day was paling candy crush. I mean like hey its all for her own good. She should be thankful because she still able to get in the college, while thousands of teenagers out there can't go to a college and have to work their ass off for living, Oh and also she has a bad sense of humor geez, but i love you tho.

Bintang wasn't really that annoying little bro, but can't control his emotion especially when he gets angry. He's a lil bit like my dad too, he believes what he believes, but in his case he likes what he likes. Since a little, this bro has been through a lot of hobby. A lotttt. Guitar, soccer, violin, piano, choirs, karate, yoyo, skateboard, bike, basketball, magic, card,and the last one is Pramuka, I wish it is his last one. But yaaa he had done it all, like I said before, he likes what he likes. Once or twice Mentari and I get mad because he spent so much dad's money for his un-long-lasting hobby. Well what can we say. Bintang was funny and has an overload alayness!

Well I think the whole idea of having siblings was nice. Especially if the year-gap wasn't really far. You learn not to become a selfish human being and not being such a douche-bag simply because your siblings will get mad or yell at you when you started to become one.

Thank you ma, pa, sis, bro. Thanks for all the fights, memories, lessons, knowledges, advices, and critics, for the last 17 years. You guys made me become a better person everyday and I am who I am today because of you.

sekian terima kasih - Bulan, 17 tahun.


Google's sweetness on your special day :)



We're going to college?

07/07/13

Hey pals! holly moly its July already. Whats going on with June? Is she hiding from me? She seems mad at me. Oh whaterfff hahaha. SO making college definitely became my new hobby since I wasn't really going anywhere on this holiday.
Yes, I have been into Photoshop since 2 years ago. But its kinda like on-off relationship between me and him because at first I didn't really understand the tools so I only follow the tutorials that I found in Google. It was so horrible because every picture that I did turned out to be some kind of stupid pic. I'm not saying that the tutorial was bad but the idea of me trying to edit a pic without any knowledge about Photoshop was bad and disgusting. Examples, I've made my blue-avatar, changed Bella Swan's face with my face, or replaced that blonde assassin girl in MI4's face with my face. And because I really didn't know what I was doing, like how to balance my face's tone color with Bella Swan's body color, so it ended up look like an alien! But it still funny somehow and I still haven't delete those pics, but there's no way I will upload it in here, no way. Since I realized that it was such a stupid action, so I quit. 

Yeah I quit, even when I started to understand it, I'm such a chicken, i know. And I never open Photoshop until last week, I saw my lil bro dug into it. and after I saw him, I opened it and the next 2 hours I made like 4 colleges without any tutorial of course. Because basically you can never make a good college if you follow a tutorial, its all about go hard or go die. You need to be original and do what you want. But mine are not really good, it was like okay fine, but it hasn't blew me away. Maybe because I made it real quick and super hurry, idk why, so I didn't pay attention on every detail so yeah. I'm not really that narcissistic to use my own selfie(that not good enough to be edit-able) so I used only 1 pic of myself and 3 pics I took it from @Sparrowly's pic from her instagram (you guys should check it out! simply because she's a lil hipster) and the others I just grabbed them from tumblr. Xoxo, bulan.

Ps: This year is my last year in high school. Hasn't figured it out which university I'll go or even which faculty :( 






Nails and Hammer!

28/05/13

The fact that I'm still in the middle of final-exams-week just slap me. In the face. Really hard. I actually still have 4 days journey to get my freedommmm! and tomorrow I have english and toefl test and haven't study anything yet. so I have to be really quick to post this one. I have no idea what I wanna post, but oh well I don't care. Since, I really love nails and stuff so lets talk about it. I can't draw, so I like to paint my nails as an escape. Pathetic.

But hey galzzzz! I just found out that even your nails will seem pretty, painting your nails is also dangerous for your body. It was dangerous because of the chemicals which contained in it and the chemicals called Phthalates. The study has shown that Phthalates can interfere the metabolism of 'fatty tissues', causing insulin resistance in healthy women. When we're talking about insulin then we're talking about Diabetes. So yes, Phthalates can increase the risk of diabetes, up to 2 times!!!!! diabetes? huohhhh, I love eating candy and painting my nails, another slap in the face maybe?

Therefore, these are some tips for you who love to paint your nails but still want to reduce the risk :



  1. Watch the expiry date
    Expired nail polish can cause symptoms such as irritation, redness itching to culminate infection. Long-term effects can lead to cancer.
  2. Note the chemical constituents in the nail polish
    Choose nail polish with water-based and doesn't smell. Nail polish which has a sting-smell is usually dangerous and can lead to dizziness.
  3. Choose a reasonable-price nail polish.
    Don't choose nail polish which is too cheap, even if you don't have much money. It's better not to buy at all rather than harm your own health. Because the chemicals that contained in it can't be accountable.
  4. Let your nails look natural
    Less is more! But if in case you really have to paint your nails, make sure that at least 2 or 3 days in a week your nails are nailpolish-less (I don't know what is it called in english.)
Some pictures of my nails!





and since the title is Nails and Hammer, it would be a public deception if there's nothing about hammer, so yaaaa lets find a hammer. So cool!




There you go. I hope you find this post a lil bit helpful! wish me luck for my exams! 
and I'm really sorry for my english, i know it's really bad. I'm learning :)
xxxx, bulan.



Show up!

05/05/13

Hello fellas! Its been a very long time since my last post. So freaking tired with school, homework exam homework and exam again. and I was at the highest saturation point for school and stuff. Well, I know that it was wrong to feel that way, like there are millions of children who want to go school but they can't. But I'm seriously sick of waking up at 5am, going to school, doing homework, then sleeping at 1pm, and start all over again for 24hours/7days. Its like a never ending story. But that's life and we're gonna live this life no matter what. So lets pump up and listen to some good music. and since I already have soundcloud a long time ago but haven't post anything, so lets post something. Those are some songs that i currently listen to. Kinda weird, but idc. xo, bulan.


a little bit of today : scratched.

04/04/13


Lately I've been stalking on Tavi Gevinson's blog, which is so cool. She is so... err 70s? yeah! I was born in the 90s though. So I was inspired and then try to turn some of my pics become look old, dusty and scratched like it were being kept in a drawer for long a time. I use a few apps on my phone and didn't use photoshop at this time, Epic fail? oh well never mind. and I also found some cool pics. Lets spread the 70s wave!

Ran Away.

28/03/13

All third-graders in my senior high school were doing UAS or school final exams on 18-22 March, I'm not a third-grader so I had days off so I ran away to Yogyakarta! But I was there only untill March 21. And since my bro had to prepare for his junior high school's final exam and my sis had no days off so I went alone! emhmm not completely alone actually because my dad had some work there buttt he had works to do so he often left me alone but that was so fine, dad. Here are some awesome places that I visited when i was there!


Too bad it was raining when I got there. But nothing can stop me, not even rain!!

 Malioboro
Since I already went there when I was on my school trip, so I just stopped by when passed that place at night. So fun! There were a lot of street music and they always there every night! And if you keep walking to the end of Malioboro Street at night you will find this guys who wears clothes like a ghost, but Indonesian Ghost like kuntilanak and pocong!

video





Prambanan Temple a.k.a Candi Prambanan a.k.a Candi Rara Jonggrang! The sun shone so bright! I'm getting darker but the temple was extremely aweee-some! I'm in love with this temple, the reflection of its figure is very incredible like i will never stop taking a lot of pics.

Alun-Alun Kidul
So brightttt! There were a lot of... what is it? becak? yeah something that looks like becak but more modern and they decorated it with a lot of lights and it became so cool. and you can ride it by yourself. Don't know becak? Google it, mate. Besides those shining becaks in Alun-alun Kidul you can try walk between those two big trees in the middle of the park. But not just walk but you have to walk between the two trees with eyes closed! if you can get past the two trees with eyes closed then your wish will come true, because it is believed that only those who has kind and pure heart that could pass. Andddd I tried three times and I perfectly passed it on the second and third!



The distance between those two trees seem so width aight? but believe me  it was so hard!
