It's 31 already. Routines do suck, but such thing like flashback and new year resolutions are still making enough sense to me. I'll simply make it extra quick since I've got something not-that-important-but-I-need-to-say-it-anyway to type.

Typing this. And smile :)

Uhm. 2011 was like, surprisingly quick and quickly surprising. Should I pick an analogy to describe it best, it would be a lightbulb I guess. At some moments it was bright slash brilliant, and then just seconds after, I'd feel like someone clicked the light away and I fell down to the darkest darkness. It only took brief period of time to be happy, then a briefer one to make me 180-degree desesperado. Switching my day from :( to :) or vice versa was very easy, like turning the lights on and off.

Many things happen, many things I learn. Most important lesson : I learn to manage the time God has given me. He only gave me 24 hrs a day while I needed actually 100, with these things I need to concern here and there. Hence I must use it wisely and make any short second counts. Some might call me busy bee, sleepless ambitious beotch, whatever. You know what? I make use of every single hour in my days just to keep my mind occupied, to prevent me from thinking about unimportant insanities.

Most important, this last post of 2011 is intended for one particular person who never left any deep mark in my past and (super sadly) won't be any part of my future. But one thing, he's the one I embrace my present with.

Happy birthday to you, end of December. The earnest, nicest, wisest person I need the most.

I know I've been such a horrible pain in the ass. I knew it, and I didn't try hard enough to fix that. I'm sorry you have to stay stuck with me while actually you can bail out and snatch any better girl out there. Sorry for my childishness, my ego, my lack of time for us, my lack of affection for what's going on with you. Sorry that I was always the one to set the fire and you were always the one to compromise. Sorry for all the sacrifices. I don't worth it, not that much. And last one, sorry I don't have the guts to say these directly to you and typed it here instead. Yes, speaking of the scardy cat...

I'm quite sure you'll read this one day, either now or maybe years from now, I don't really give a damn about "when". The point is, I'm terribly sorry that I can never give my all. If only you and I were born ......... (you know what I mean). Sighness. Okay I don't want to talk about this anymore.

Well, forget my rants. No matter what awaits for us in the other end of this highway, I'm happy right now and I'm hyper thankful that I found a perfect remedy for my distressing days.

Thanks. ILDS
from your Snor-lacks that lacks of everything you want

Say Sing-A-whaatt?

Nothing. I'm just reminiscing that good chilly January

The Anakkosans Go International Chapter 2 is about to be released, like, not really soon actually. Still have to wait and cross my legs until Summer 2012. By the time being, let's just flip through these old pictures while hoping that the next round will be damn more superb. Yo ho, let's sail the air! Ka pun kap!

make up by Etude

photos by Dana Pranesthi Wening
I've edited some tints here and there

Sorry for the über belated post, but still, I'd like to thank everyone in this photo above (and also some people being out of frame). Crews, models, fitters, mannequins, and bien sûr all ye spectators! That might not be the best show ever, yet it surely was the best team I've ever involved in.

Good news is, this is just the starting point of our timeline. The show carries on, now in a way bigger scale! Another event with the word "fashion show" entitled in it. I guarantee you, it's not the corny prestige we run after. It's the pleasure.

Wait up in April 2012. We're about to stun this posh industry. Find out more here

bold, black, beautiful

just another small tip to be under the spotlight without way too much effort :
some people say, perfect pair of shoes would mark up your outlook like 10000x better

why go basic if you can flaunt it terrific?
black can go bolder than neon sparks with slightly right, measured touch of uniqueness, like these...

United Nude

Space Shoe Wood Wedge Sandal

analogy monologuey

I saw a red tulip, then I told you “Look, a tulip!”

You smiled and replied “It’s rose, my sweet lil dummie.”

I was like, whaattt? “But babe can’t you see? That must be a tulip!”

You turned emotional. “What kind of goddamned tulip would look like that? Come on.”

I thought, alright. Anything to stop this nonsense fight. Okay hon, that’s a rose, just like your smart-ass said.

When you heard that, you got mad instead.
I thought like, “Fine then. I’ve compromised for you, you don’t buy that, fine enough.” And that was exactly why I left you there.

So right now, if you think you could come to me and say “I just realized after all this time, you’re right.  I think that was a tulip we saw back then.”
well I’ll spill it all out to your face. “Look, both the tulip and the rose were already withered, dead, RIP, like ages ago. So why bother about them at the first place? Get off.”

Get off. I won’t ever listen to you anymore.

That very moment when insecurity crashes me like massive car accident

Rem, kopling, gas
Melaju pelan di atas aspal keras
Roda bergulir dibawah terik panas

Gigi satu, netral, gigi dua
Macet bagai hari libur di Cisarua
Radio, AC, demi mengusir penat kunyalakan semua

Tol ramai lancar, gigi tiga
Polisi berdiri tegak namun tak ada sikap siaga
Biar sajalah, walau begitu aku harus tetap terjaga

Semakin lancar! Hajarlah gigi enam
Mendadak jurang membentang, aku terkaget nafasku berdentam
Sekuat iman kuinjak rem sampai terbenam

Kenapa aku tidak bisa berhenti............

There's a moment to seize every time that we meet, but you always keep passing me by

So, I was sitting outside one day
Waiting for the dude to come down my way
Praying, wishing, hoping, thinking
And I felt my emotions sinking
I've been waiting for the phone to ring
I check constantly, but it was all a dream
I never thought you could be so mean
Tired of the waiting, so it's time to come clean
And why do boys have to be so shady?
First it's all good and he's glad you're his lady
Baby this, baby that, see another chick and he act like that
But the thing with me, I can't take it
Keep it 100, was real, now face it
You gonna eat your words and Imma make you happen
So we're ready for the action

Cause you never were, and you never will be mine...
No you never were, and you never will be mine...
There's a moment to seize every time that we meet
But you always keep passing me by
No you never were, and you never will be mine...

If you havin problems with the one you love so much
And you wanna feel his touch
Put your hand in the air, let them know that you truly care
You don't wanna do the fight fuss
Getting sick of the love pain
All the lies and the trust games
Guessing, age don't make a difference
And I'm getting fed up, so listen
First you told me that you loved me dearly
I loved you, did I make that clearly?
And you're thinking that you can play my game
But I wanna think twice, so retain my claim
And I'm kinda mad at myself, cause I let you get the best of me
To confess to me, her
Oh boy, I'm through
Tell that chick that she better get at you

Cause you never were, and you never will be mine...
No you never were, and you never will be mine...
There's a moment to seize every time that we meet
But you always keep passing me by
No you never were, and you never will be mine...

(Robyn feat Rye Rye - Never Will Be Mine)
it doesn't completely resemble my true recent case here, but still.........

stalking after-effect

Why God created north and south,
if we're supposed to walk side by side?
The stones scattering on the street,
we used to kick em up away like little kid.
If our path has really been cleared,
now tell me why we become this weird?
Words hanging like sword against my mouth,
yet I never had the chance to spill them all right.

To the moonless night sky I demand :
please take me to the place where your future will stand...

it might sound cliché, but it's still true

I have this one friend whose story I feel like sharing to all of you. first of all I should make the case clear : he doesn't know that I already found out about his trouble. so I'd rather protect his identity by not telling who he is, from where I knew him, where he studies, whatever. one sure thing : he's a very good man. yea of course, I won't even bother to mumble about him at the first place if he's not.

he always puts his flat face everytime he's around. he's quite silent, whenever it comes to mocking games he's our group's best prey. no matter how mean we mock him, he would just say something like "sh*t" or "dammit" or so, try to humorously revenge us (but failed), then he would just laugh about that and forget them all.

we tease him very often "ha! weak! chicken! HA!" or sorta things like that. but today we all just knew that he had this one big burden on his shoulders since quite long time ago. he couldn't pay his tuition fee. that's it.

it was almost like thunderbolt in the middle of peaceful dewy morning for us. and then, as if that were not enough : the deadline was actually... tomorrow. his campus starts the day off from tomorrow, so I guess you know how critical the situation is. last time I heard from an anonymous source, he only got around 30% of all the amount needed, and right now, it's only 3 hours before tomorrow...

I don't know how to respond with this. the word sad, I don't think that is "proper" enough.

well I'm not that close with him actually, neither as BFF nor romantic flirty buddy. it's just that I spent quite much time with him and our other companies, that's why I can't stand the thought of losing him. he's a very good man, a good friend indeed.

once I've posted case like this, about one senior of mine in UI. yet when it happens to YOUR OWN buddy, it feels like... impossible. I never thought that his condition is actually THIS bad.

that's all. I'm spilling this all out not to hold a charity act for him or what. I let you know so that you can open your eyes and see, perhaps most of you are slightly luckier in some perspectives.

whatever your problem is, don't whine, don't complain. you are not the most miserable one.
