I think this is going to be the longest update that I’ll ever post. but love this update as it is full of lists..Here goes:

11 things about me:

  1.  Can’t stand having long hair and long nails. I tried, believe you me I tried, but I just don’t have the patience to dry my hair properly and keep my long nail clean. For those who can, I salute you!
  2. Massage is a form of torture for me, because I am so ticklish, so no spa treatment for me or in Indonesia no calling the mbok with minyak kelapa for a massage.
  3. As a child I regularly get called in to the teachers’ office for being rebellious and naughty, I mean at least twice a month.
  4.  I am rubbish at hiding my feelings and my thoughts, sometimes they offend people
  5. I make a joke out of most things including myself
  6. Quite often when someone say something to me, if the words they say sounds like a song I know, I break out to sing (annoying I know, plus I am rubbish at singing) . If there is no song with the same words, I would also sometime make a song out of it. I am just annoying in general. hahahah.
  7. Reading books and watching films are my escapism. I love reading, and read quite fast, maybe badly though as I quickly forget the details.
  8. I love sending postcards..
  9. I love buying people presents but I am bad at wrapping them.
  10. I am really glad that I was born in this era, where amongst other things the internet exist, where women has almost equal rights to men, where old horrible tradition can be questioned, and information is almost free…
  11. I can’t believe people read my blog hahahaha..

11 Q&A

The questions were asked in Indonesian, so I am going to try answering in both.

1.Kapan mulai ngeblog?| when did you start blogging?
Blog yang ini sih 2011, seperti banyak orang lain sbeblumnya nyoba ngeblog tapi gak pernah bisa teratur dan selalu update. Kali ini sih niatnya blog cuman bener2 jadi diary aja untuk ngingetin kejadian2 atau pengalaman, karena ingatan saya seperti ingatan ikan mas, hilang dalam 3 menit dan juga karena males nato badan sendiri seperti film memento mori, saya ngeblog aja.hihihi.

This one I started in 2011, like others, I had started loads before this but could not keep it consistent. This time I only wanted a diary to remind me of things I have a memory of a goldfish, also I am too much of a whimp to tatoo myself like the guy out of memento mori.

2.Paling suka nulis tentang apa?| What do I like to write about?
Menulis segi positif dan menarik tentang Indonesia, biasanya soal seni atau budaya atau hal-hal cantik yang patut disebar luaskan.

Obviously about Indonesia, and all the beautiful and interesting it offers mainly art and culture.

3. Sebutkan blog yang menurutmu paling keren dan kenapa?| What do you think is the coolest blog and why?
hmm.. ini susah nih, banyak banget seperti kalu ditanya musik apa yang paling keren, atau buku apa yang paling keren.. susah.. susah..kan tergantung. Ini bisa bahan disertasi 100 halaman.

This is really difficult question, is like being asked what is you favourite music, it all depends.

4.Kalau suatu saat pengen menghilang dari rutinitas yang sekarang, pengennya kemana dan kenapa pilih tempat itu? | If you can getaway from you routine Life, where do you want to go and why there?
Hmm, kalau tujuannya menghindari hikuk pikuk, pergi ke Madagaskar, karena blom pernah dan sepertinya asri dan alami. Kalau ngabur dari hidup yang rutin, ke amerika, untuk road trip.

If it is to escape the hustle and bustle, Madagascar, because I have never been and it looks so green and natural. If it is to getaway from the mundane routine the U.S for a huge road trip.

5.Sebutkan 3 hal yang paling kamu benci dan 3 hal paling kamu suka. | Name 3 things you hate and 3 things you love.
Paling 3 hal paling saya benci adalah kebohongan, kebodohan sengaja, dan tidak adanya empathy. Paling saya suka: Warna, karya seni dan design yang indah, orang2 yang menarik dan baik hati.

Hate: Lies, Ignorance and No empathy, LOVE: Colours, beautiful art and design, kind and interesting people

6.Kalau punya mesin waktu, apa yang akan kamu lakukan?|If you have a working time machine what would you do?
Lihat masa depan, biar bs nyiapin diri dan invest ke hal2 yang bertahan, dan tentunya liat robot.

Go to the future, prepare myself, to invest on things that will last and of course to see robots.

7.Kebiasaan jelek apa dari dirimu yang pengen kamu hilangkan?| What bad habit would you like to get rid of?
Ngomong tanpa berfikir..hahahaha.

Talking without thinking.

8.Seandainya kamu terjebak di lift, dengan siapa kamu ingin terjebak di dalamnya dan kenapa?| If you are stuck in a lift, who would like you be stuck with, and why?
Kalau liftnya di tingkat 15, spiderman, superman, atau city hunternya korea, siapa aja yang bisa ngeluarin gw dari bahaya maut. Kalau terjebaknya cuman lantai tiga, orang yang lucu kayak David Mitchel, Charlie Brooker atau sahabat saya.

Hmm, it depends how long would it be, and where the lift is, if it is stuck on floor 15, Spiderman or superman or Korean City Hunter, anyone who can get me out of there. If it is 3rd floor, someone funny and clever like David Mitchel, or Charlie brooker or my best friend..

9.Apa hal yang amat sangat kamu inginkan di dunia ini? Apakah kamu sudah mendapatkannya?| Is there anything you would really like in this world and have you got it yet?
Tergantung hal ini benda atau keinginan lainnya, klo benda gak ada yang pingin banget. Kalau hal itu pengalaman liat seluruh dunia, belum kesampaian.

Again it depends, if it is possesion not really. I would really like however to see most of the world, and the answer is no, I have not had it yet..

10.Kalau kamu bisa masuk ke dalam dunia film. Film apa yang ingin kamu masuki dan kenapa? If you can be in a world inside a movie, what movie would you be in and why?
Harry Potter, jadi salah satu murid Hogwarts, jadi bagian dunia sihir, punya burung hantu, belajar sihir tapi gak harus menderita..hihihi..

Harry Potter, as one of the other students at Hogwarts, so I can be a part of the magical world, have an owl, learn magic, but not have to suffer the quest.🙂.

11.Gambarkan dirimu dengan 3 kata. | Describe yourself in 3 words.
Indonesia, aneh, spontan |Indonesian, Silly, Spontaneous.
