my current dope : The Band Perry

If I die young, bury me in satin

Lay me down on a, bed of roses

Sink me in the river, at dawn

Send me away with the words of a love song

Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother

She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh and

Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no

Ain't even grey, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, well

I've had, just enough time

And I'll be wearing white, when I come into your kingdom

I'm as green as the ring on my little, cold finger, I've

Never known the lovin' of a man

But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand, there's a

Boy here in town says he'll, love me forever

Who would have thought forever could be severed by

The sharp knife of a short life, well

I've had, just enough time

So put on your best boys and I'll wear my pearls

What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no, I'll sell them for a dollar

They're worth so much more after I'm a goner

And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'

Funny when you're dead how people start listenin'

Uh oh

The ballad of a dove

Go with peace and love

Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket

Save them for a time when you're really gonna need them, oh

The sharp knife of a short life, well

I've had, just enough time

So put on your best boys and I'll wear my pearls...

The Band Perry - If I Die Young

Saturday, 15 January 2011


*backsound : The Band Perry - If I Die Young*

"Lo inget kan salah satu alesan kenapa bonyok gamau lo masuk UI? Karena takut lo kena pengaruh buruk. Ya lo jangan malah nunjukin kalo mereka bener dong. Lo mesti berubah, mesti mikir yang positif."
- Christiaan Robert R.

"Anggep aja kayak gini. Kadang lo nangis gara-gara lo cuma dapet satu permen. Tapi lo mesti inget, di luar sana malah ada yang gak dapet permen sama sekali."
- Argi Wibawa

*backsound : Boyce Avenue - Iris*

I was currently doing nothing. shuffling my iTunes playlist, thinking and re-thinking about lots of things until some words of my friends crossed my mind. one was from Aan and the other from Argi. I can't get those words out of my head. it's like, geez, they can't be more correct than that.

so today, I'm just gonna thank God that I still have lots of wise heads around me. my friends, my sister, and some others that had changed me without me realizing it. maybe I could only whine up all the time without them all.

*backsound : 311 - Love Song*

points of today. I'll just make it compact, I'm tired

- RTC meeting at campus, then left with Aan to take a bus. left my wallet in RTC. thank God still have IDR50k.

- first time in my life taking a Metro Mini. what a record -__-"

- stopped by Aan's house. rode to Istora Senayan to see N.E.R.D. then arrived at 5 PM. still very few people. less than 10 people when I reached the venue, I think. fyi, cool people with fancy outfits were like everywhere.

- opening act by S.O.B at 8.30 PM. Iwa K & Eno Netral were on that band. quite good. 2nd one : RAN. the crowd wasn't appreciative at all. felt so sorry for RAN.

- around half 10 N.E.R.D. entered the stage. Chad didn't come, only Pharrell & Shae.

- Shae was quite passive. stayed behind Pharrell during the whole show.

- Pharrell? total flirty. he was a professor-womanizer I think. once he jumped down from the stage and hugged a random girl. then he asked another girl to come up to the stage. this girl knew every single word in every songs, that's why she was picked. she got hugs and kisses from Pharrell. GEEZ

- not enough with a girl, he also picked a man. this man had the same tattoo as Pharrell's. WOW. both the boy and the girl stayed on stage until the end of the show.

- overall performance? AWESOME. it was beyond words. cool. spectacular. DAMN. one of the best gig I've ever seen.  at first I thought "they're not communicative, snob." later they went wild and far wilder.

- some songs I remembered : She Wants To Move, Spaz, Sooner Or Later, Sacred Temple, Lapdance, Everyone Nose, Hypnotize U, Hot N Fun, Rock Star Poser, couldn't remember the rest.

- in the end of the show, Pharrell jumped down again and nyalamin SEMUA penonton di deret depan. iya, SEMUA ujung sampe ujung. ini yang paling bikin nyesel kenapa gw gak nonton festival coba. gw dateng pagi banget kalo gw di festival PASTI DAPET DISALAMIN! maaf jadi curcol.

- he signed his white T-shirt, took it off, then gave it to the girl (the lucky one on the stage). and also his hat for the tattoo boy. fyi, I saw someone threw a pink BRA to the stage. and the camera kept on shooting it. man....

- show was done at 11 PM. went to Starbucks Sarinah to get some drink. then went back home. nah. kutukan nyasar gw terbukti gak ilang2. salah turun tol, setengah jam lebih nyasar di Bekasi entah belahan mana sampe terminal sampe entah itu dimana. akhirnya sampe rumah dengan selamat dan lemas.

percakapan di atas tol :
Me : "Wow udah sampe sini udah bener nih. Selamat cuy lo orang pertama yang gak gw bikin nyasar!"
Aan : "Wow! Bikinin gw sertifikat!"
Me : "Oke ini benar2 harus dirayakan. Kutukan nyasar gw sudah berakhir!"

setelah 3-4 kali ngelewatin jalan yang sama :
Aan : (terdiam lemas) "Oke yuk, sertifikatnya batal ya."

well. congratulations, I just got my 6th nyasar victim. let's re-list them up :

1. Budi, mau ke Bekasi nyasar sampe Halim Perdanakusuma
2. Pingkan, mau ke rumah nyasar 100 meter dari rumah, kejebak portal
3. Caca, mau ke Bekasi nyasar ke Tanjung Priuk
4 & 5. Fira & Bandoro, mau ke Kemang nyasar ke Menteng
6. Aan, mau ke rumah nyasar sampe Bekasi pelosok2 entah itu daerah namanya apa

udah males pake Inggris lah. cape mikir
foto2 semua di kamera Aan. ntar nyusul kali ya. mau cepet2 ngegeletak di atas bantal.

1 dress, 10 ways

featuring Hunter Dress from Majic (on twitter @wecreatemajic), one of Indonesia's promising local brands.

I bought this dress on the last Brightspot Market (around September if I'm not mistaken) from Happy-Go-Lucky booth. since Brightspot is only a "3-day market", you can find the products they sold in The Goods Dept. (Plaza Indonesia Extension Jkt), Level One Project (Grand Indonesia Jkt) or Happy-Go-Lucky house (Jl. Ciliwung Bdg).

and about the dress itself, it's a very simple A-line dress with 2 sashes (the long parts that resemble a rope) attached below it.

you can tie up this part here and there, twist the dress, simply any ways that cross your mind, just do it. you can make unlimited series of new ways to wear it. so far I've found 10

look #1 - Trio Tiny Tie
quite easy, it's like making a mini bow on one shoulder

look #2 - Poodle Curl
tie the 2 sashes behind your neck so that it will hang there

look #3 - Empire's New Groove
turn over the left side of the dress, tie it around your empire line. adjust the neck line to create a V-neck

look #4 - Cocoon
fold the sleeve inside to change it into a tube dress. tie up the sash around your waist and adjust the rest of the fabric

look #5 - Crossropes
almost similar to look #2, but now you switch the position to make an X

look #6 - Separated
adjust the left side of the dress until it covers your right chest and drop into smooth drapes. tie the tip of the dress into the right sleeve. take the right side, tie up the sash around your waist.

look #7 - Raw Greek
gather up all the fabrics and wrap your body with it. tie up all the sashes into small bow and put it inside the dress, between your legs.

look #8 - Jump Baby Jump
take the front and back part of the dress, tie it up together to make the "pants". then adjust the left and right sashes until the rest of the fabric cover up your legs. tie the sash like a small bow. wear a belt to curve up your torso

look #9 - Breeze On My Butty
easy. you only need to "relocate" the neck line and move it to your waist. tie up the rest of the fabric behind your back. wear a big belt to hold the pants up

look #10 - Fifties In A Fun Twist
even easier. undo all the tied parts so it will be a flare midi skirt

next time I'll try with another ways. hope I could find another 10.
and thanks to my sister for volunteering herself as model!

until the next post people!

Billboard Top 50 Singles (1/8/2011)

okay, I'm absolutely not in my best mood today.
just found out my latest GPA for the last semester and it's... well, I could feel like hell's coming up on me. lucky enough to pass some deadly subjects, but it feels horrible to see those 'C's scattered on my score sheet. fine. whatever. I won't die just because of this pain on the brain. well, unless those fugly lecturers come to me and chase me with a sharp blood-stained blade, like those serial killers on movie. okay quit it, I'm getting delusional. please pardon my unhealthy soul today.

let's just talk about something much much more pleasant. here I'm sharing you all the latest Billboard Chart. they keep on updating the chart each week, I hope I could do the same. re-post the chart here, I mean. 
FYI, I got the source from here.

to make it more efficient, I'll type here only the newcomers and the newest top 10.

Guidelines :
kiss (:*) = love it
triple kiss (:* :* :*) = love it love it LLLLOVE IT!
triple kiss with a coret bret (:xxx) = used to love it love it love it, before it was damn overrated and I started to get bored

Newcomers :
41. Taio Cruz ft. Travie McCoy - Higher (:* :* :*)
30. The Lonely Island ft. Akon - I Just Had Sex

10. Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are (:* :* :*)
9.  Black Eyed Peas - The Time (Dirty Bit) (:xxx)
8. Trey Songz ft. Nicki Minaj - Bottoms Up
7. Enrique Iglesias ft. Ludacris - Tonight (I'm F**king You) (:* :* :*)
6. Wiz Khalifa - Black And Yellow

5. P!nk - Raise Your Glass
4. Rihanna ft. Drake - What's My Name? (:*)
3. Ke$ha - We R Who We R
2. Katy Perry - Firework (:xxx)
1. Bruno Mars - Grenade (:* :* :*)

YAY! Grenade is like, playing in my head aaalll time. just a phrase "love it" is simply not enough. I'm addicted to it, I guess.

Easy come, easy go, that's just how you live
Take, take, take it all, but you never give
Should've known you were trouble from the first kiss
Had your eyes wide open
Why were they open?

Gave you all I had and you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, you did
You give me all your love is all I ever asked
Cause what you don't understand

Is that I'd catch a grenade for you
Throw my hand on the blade for you
I'd jump in front of a train for you
You know I'd do anything for you

I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight to my brain
Yes I would die for you babe
But you won't do the same...

No you won't do the same...
