Blonde Bitch with a Bunch of Bubble

What's going on on the floor?
I love this record baby, but I can't see straight anymore
Keep it cool what's the name of this club?
I can't remember but it's alright, alright
Just dance. Gonna be okay


Went to Lady Gaga live in concertlast night! At 7.30 PM I went inside, DJ Inquisitive was playing some fitness disco songs, such as Get Low (Flo Rida), Insomnia (Craig David), Boom Boom Pow (BEP), I Know You Want Me (Pitbull)... all remixed. She's very late actually, the show started on 9 PM, not 8 PM huh. But when the gig started... even though I couldn't see straight anymore, just dance!


She started with Paparazzi. Then Lovegame, Money Honey(Lady Gaga: "You know what I hate most in the world? It's MONEY!"), Just Dance, Fame, Boysboysboys, Beautiful Dirty Rich, Eh Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say). What annoyed me most was people not dancing crazily! They cared more to get pictures of the stage, not enjoying the show. They didn't jump up, didn'…

The Genius

"There shall be wings! If the accomplishment be not for me, 'tis for some other."
Da Vinci, Father of Flight

In this exhibition, it shows theories, replica of tools and paintings that had been created by Leonardo Da Vinci in 15th century. He was inventor, artist, mathematician, scientist, engineer, sculptor, anatomist, biologist, musician, architect, philosopher, writer... He even designed a humanoid robot and diving equipments! Seriously, I am amazed. I feel like I know nothing.

44th Singapore

"I don't like Singapore, it is a rotten place as is indeed every other town. I am simply crazy to get away again."
1903, William Louis Abbott.

Two days ago I went to the city to feel the euphoria of Singapore National Day. I've been here only for 8 months (still considered as tourist?), so I need to see how people celebrate it. First I made a stop in Suntec City to have lunch on one of the restaurants there around Fountain of Wealth. It is the world largest fountain, with colorful lights at night (see pictures below I took a month ago).


When the big fountain is off, we can come in to the small fountain, go around of it and touch the water while making wishes. They said our dreams will come true (still not sure of it, because friends have already did it and not proven until now :P). Actually I have visited and seen this fountain many times, but never have the chance to do this ritual. So I did it! Not like there's something I wish for, but only for spending my time…

Bookworm

Two days ago I visited the central National Library of Singapore in Bras Basah, near Bugis and City Hall MRT. At first I didn't have any intention to subscribe the membership, because I just wanted to look around and honestly I didn't read book much lately (despite of my yearly target to read at least 50 books). Even if I wanted to read, I still can read the books on the spot without being a member. Yet when I looked around the books and everything, I fell in love in reading again. I straightaway registered myself as a member. It costs S$53.3 per year for foreigner, S$10.5 for Permanent Residents and free for Singaporeans.

Borrowing and returning the books are made automatically. When I tried to borrow 2 books (let's start with Chick Lit :D), I inserted my membership card and scanned the books one by one on the machine. As for returning books, there are few 24-hr Bookdrop booths outside the library for members to scan the books and drop them. Members can borrow books from…

Piñata e Bailar

Last night I had so much fun in surprise party of my friend's birthday. The host works in the same company as mine, he is from Colombia. We also celebrated his wife's birthday, so the theme is Latin America. This is the first time I know about Piñata. It is a colorful container filled with sweet, candies and toys, hanged with ropes on the wall, ceiling or tree branches. Someone will hit it with stick and blinded eyes until it is smashed, then all people snatch and collect the candies.


This tradition comes from Mexico, usually for special occasions such as birthday, Christmas or Halloween. It is made from materials that are easily breakable like balloon or clay. Piñata also can be formed in any shapes. I would be glad to punch Harry Potter piñata, lol!


Last night the rules are each person must take at least one Chupa Chupa (lollipop), otherwise he/she will get penalty. If everybody has it, then who has the Chupa Chupa with X signed on it would get penalty. One of the host'…

Because That's Not Me

Will write it mostly in Bahasa Indonesia.

If there is someone not cover her hair again in public, the first question that should be asked (if you dare and care to ask) is not "Kenapa dilepas?" but "Awalnya dulu kenapa dipakai?" If there's nothing wrong in the beginning, so the problem should be along the way. In my case, it's already in the beginning, so I kinda difficult to answer "Kenapa dilepas?"

Kalau kenapa awalnya dulu pakai, jawabannya gampang: Syariat Islam di Aceh. I come from Aceh, where every girl there MUST wear veil, if they don't want their hair being cut or to get other punishment from Polisi Syariah. In my opinion, kerudung disana dianggap sebagai budaya, dimana cewe-cewe ga boleh keluar rumah dengan pakaian seronok (kalau pakai baju minim 2 kali jadi 2 ronok *halah*). Kalo cuma ke warung deket rumah atau bertandang ke rumah tetangga atau ada saudara berkunjung ke rumah (meskipun bukan muhrim) ya preman aja ga pake kerudung. Ka…
