Location Location Location!!!

Those are the 3 major factor if you want to purchase a house (or a store or else). in my case now is  the house.

When my fiance bought me the house, he asked me where i want to live. but at that time, i thought distance is not a problem. but now… the fact that the house is 80 km far from my office….. ooohhh thinking about it makes me dizzy. If I still work in the same place by the time I moved there, everyday I have to travel 160 km. (thats like going to bandung???)

Now I have 2 options. move the house…. or move the office…. either one has a lot of consequences…. Oh Help me God.

2010 Resolution

Usually I make Christmas Resolution each year, and then renew it for Birthday Resolution. But this time I make New Year Resolution instead. I think it is the same thing, just that I was still in the progress of processing my resolution on Christmas day.

I have changed a lot of my resolutions now. instead of pursuing the old stuffs from last year, I made some new ones. I will put the remaining as a note and see if they can be achieved this year.

1. Spiritual growth: read bible everyday and pray constantly

2. Career growth: personal development and salary above ***

3. Physical: more exercise and regular diet

4. Debt free: pay all mortgage / loans

Aside from the 4 points, I need to point out the note as an affirmation. I know I can’t put it as a resolution, because it would be too idealistic to want it in 2010.

Affirmation: I’m married to a single, loyal, caring, catholic, good looking, successful man.

10 years ago…

Looking back… I don’t want to see a flashback of what happens in 2009 only. I want to see a bigger picture now. Let’s go back to 10 years ago.

10 years ago…. was the year of 1999. back then I was still in college taking my bachelor degree. I had my first job and my first salary. I had no bf. I wasn’t close to God. I was a perfectionist and pure cholerics.

Comparing my achievement in 10 years time… I think I’ve done a great job.

My salary jumps 100 times in 10 years. The fact that I graduated from my bachelor and my master degree has some influence to that.

At that time my life revolved around study and work, absolutely no ME TIME. Being a pure choleric, I didn’t see why I need other people. I can live by myself, do everything by myself.

I always count on ME, instead of GOD. {God had to take the hard way to make me realized it. silly me.}

I loose weight in 10years time quite a lot. I change clothing sizes down.

What else? let me think about it and then post it later on.

TOMC

TOMC stands for Teawalk, Outbound and Mini Camp. The event was held last weekend. December 6 to 8,2008.

Ougway in 2nd post

Ougway in 2nd post

My group was called Ougway. Do you know what kind of animal that is???

At first none of us knew… we were completely blank when we had to come up with jingle.

Turned out, Ougway was the name of character in Kungfu Panda movie. He is the wise turtle, Po’s master. Since then, we use the turtle motto. Slowly but sure. hahahaha

We ended up to be the last team to arrive in 2nd post. (actually in all the posts because we were lost before the 1st post, but still manage to get there the same time as Tiggress)

The Teawalk was fun. Most of the members have something in common. That is their target within 1 to 2 years…. to get married.

Is marriage a really difficult thing to do nowadays? Why would more than 100 singles who want to get married need to gather around for camping like this?

Waterfall

Under the waterfall

Last Sunday I went to Bandung to see the waterfall. Well, the main reason is to pray and this is just the side dish. But the side dish turns out to be a lot more fun (of course lah).

The waterfall is so beautiful and worth every effort. The journey going and back was kind of hard, but once you’re there all the pain will be gone.

I even had my so-called pre-wed pics there hehehe 🙂

All the good memories will be remembered always.

Bunaken

Nice, isnt it? they say picture said a thousand words…. But seeing this picture is not even 10% of seeing it for real… so still reality is the best 🙂 . You cannot compare words to pictures to the real thing. God is so amazing that He can create lots of wonderful things for us to see, feel, touch, hear, etc.

For those who hasnt been to Bunaken, this place is recommended. You should try going there and see for yourselves.

Travelling to Bandung

photo_picnwall.jpgI thought I write something different today. For those who read my blogs before, I always wrote things around love and life…. But today I’d like to try something different. This is about my hobby, travelling.

One of my favourite place is Bandung. I live in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia. Bandung is about 130 km from Jakarta, we can use the new freeway so only takes about 2 hours or so by car.

Bandung is the city of West Java. The climate is cooler than Jakarta because it is located in a higher grounds. There are some tourism places to go to. The scenery is beautiful….

And yet people tend to go to the shopping places more than the tourism places. There are a lot of Factory Outlets… which are very convenient to visit… 🙂 – I don’t really buy clothes there, the quality is not that good I think. But most people like shopping in FOs.

Also good to visit in Bandung (aka city of flowers) are the restaurants and cafes. Some serve good food, but some others serve so so food with high price. You buy the environment only.
