A simple guide for wedding preparation

These are the things I learn from my preparation time...

1. Prepare your mental and physics
2. Enjoy -- there will be so much fight between you and your partner, and you with your family. just enjoy it! this preparation time will teach you many things :)
3. Never forget to pray
4. Take time for yourself: contemplating, and find the meaning behind this marriage thingy
5. Smile and simply surrender. In Indonesia, we call it : pasrah :D

to be or not to be

Between all the things I have done, I really messed up with this one (read: this blog).
And... *ah, it's too hard to confess* .. my theses.

As my senior in college used to say,
"to be married, is the second important decision in our life"
As my best friend used to say,
"You think marriage will make you happy? You should think again."

Many girls love to think about the wedding day.
Gowns, dresses, flowers, decorations, food, venue, taking pictures, it really sounds like a never ending joy.
Hate to admit it, but, these imaginations don't stop right there.
Do you really imagine a marriage as it is?
Being one with two head which bear their own perceptions, dreams and visions is not as easy as you think.

The day is getting closer, and my best cousin (refer as my closest sister) is asking me,
"how do you feel?"

It a little bit scary to think, maybe I had missed a thing, or many things for "the" day.
Too many worries, I couldn't afford the school fund for my kids to be *ahem*
And I am still thinking about my theses.
excited? yet, I still curious what might happen..

Between tears and joy (in my preparation days), I still choose to walk on this path.
This marriage path..

"Tuhan tidak menjanjikan selalu ada hujan, tapi dia janjikan kekuatan di dalam hidupmu"
I couldn't translate this sentence perfectly. hahahah

Praise the Lord.... ;)

Jumping into Conclusion

A research found that many of citizen tried to help a white-drunken driver, instead of black-drunken driver in America. When the citizen saw some white man who drunk in the morning and tries to run their car, they were trying to stop him. But, when it comes to black male-drunken driver, they were not showing the same behavior. This lead into question, why?

the research proves that many of human being thinks under their assumptions and prejudice. Their assumptions might be based on stereotypes, and the prejudice might came from their past experience.

This behavior might lead them to wrong conclusion.

tentang kompetensi .. part 2

Melanjutkan kisah tentang si kompetensi :)

Apa sih gunanya pembuatan kompetensi ini?

Bayangkan Anda bekerja di dalam perusahaan retail. Sales sangat penting untuk kegiatan bisnis Anda. Di antara sales yang Anda miliki, pasti Anda dapat melihat secara kasat mata, siapa yang tergolong superior dan siapa yang tergolong low performer. Cobalah bandingkan, keunggulan apa yang dimiliki oleh superior yang tidak dimiliki oleh low performer. Apabila terdapat keunggulan yang sama antara beberapa orang superior, itu bisa jadi kompetensi yang Anda butuhkan.

and another class to attend

I kept myself busy these days.
Attending this and that class.
Sleeping full time in the car and ended up losing myself in the stacks of homeworks.

Too many to think of, and I just don't want to spend my time only thinking!
I'm no plato or confusius (wait,..... is that a person name? >> think>> oh whatever!)
So, instead of thinking, I just practically doing!

And I finally *drum roll* became a member of a fitness club

Okay, you might think that this couldn't be a big thing!
well, it is big for me.
I hate doing treadmill,
I found my self really hard to do the discipline.
I don't even have all the money in the world,
But, I know I have to do some body exercising.

And being a member, should be so much help.

Last nite, I attend body combat class.
I admit it, it was hard, but fun!! x)
psst, I didn't do all the jumping and kicking.
I practically watching the others do it!! LOL x)

why oh why I join fitness club?
I need to stay fit and healthy. that's it. end of story
the killer body? no, I am not intend to have it, maybe just a bonus #ha! #youwish

cross your fingers for me, dearies,
yes for the healthy. x)

Currently listen to Katy Perry song..
And I'm getting so much inspiration by the way the lyric is talking.. :)

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
'cause baby, you're a firework,
come on, show 'em what you're worth
baby, you're a firework
come on, let your color burst,
make 'em go, ohhh
you're gonna leave 'em falling down

you're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

you could open one (door) that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow,
And when it's time you'll know

I really love this song.. it kept on playing on my head on and on..
Kudos to you dear Katy Perry :)
