Birthday Galore pt.1

|What I got for my birthday|

I know my birthday was a long time ago, but I have this habit to celebrate it with my friends weeks later, this years celebration was held last week, and what a coincidence, none of my friends bought their big SLR camera, so we took pictures using cellphones, and I haven’t received any of the pic yet. I got SO MANY gifts I tell you. Here are what I got:

from two of my silliest friends, they’re crazy, this pouch has my university logo on it, notice that it’s kind of smeared? Yes, I tried to remove my university logo. So much for being a good student, lol. But this thing turns out to be really useful, a small pouch that can contain LOTS of things inside, I can even put my books in it. Thank you, boys! lol.

From my bloggy friend, cecillee, she’s so kind! These were an advanced birthday gift from her, when she went to Bali (and Singapore) she remembered to bring me these stuffs, actually there were more, but I didn’t get to take a picture of them *sigh*, will hopefully do later. She sent me lots and lots of earrings, and more jewelries, haha. I’m so loving her gift! ;D

From my friend, Aline. She got her boyfriend from Australia bought this book for me, I couldn’t find the English version here in Indonesia (or I’m just too lazy to go looking for it, haha…). When I opened the wrap (I knew what it contains already, lol) my friends instantly told me that they want to borrow it once I finished reading this book, while actually I have no plan to finish it soon, it’s still in queue… the first book to read in my list? Something about narrative, scheme actantial and Algirdas Griemas.

The best gift of all, from my girls; Nanette, Rian, and Aline (yes, she gives me two). A sketch book and a brush set! Oh my! This is like the thing I want the most recently! I have yet to draw anything on it, I want to wait ’till I have the brightest idea, I don’t want to waste a page, lol. So precious! :D

Actually there are more, but I haven’t took a pic of them yet, and the best friend? Yes, he had bought me something, I still don’t know what it is, though. He forgot to bring it the last time we met (so typical of him, yeah.)

I love birthday with lots of surprises! ;D

This is the first part of my birthday post series, more to come very soon! :D


My world is turning up-up-up and side-side-side and down

Posted in girl talk, little secrets, moments in life, that guy, the best friend by littletiara on March 12, 2010

I just realized I didn’t put up any title in the previous post, lol. Guess I was too caught up with the fact that… oh well, that LOTS of things happened, and I was so wrong thinking everything will end soonest. Later yesterday I found my friend(s) commenting on my La Vie en Rose post. Which practically turned me as crazy as one could be, just in case you forget, in the very first paragraph of that post I’ve written:

Now I just need to pray silently none of my friends read this.


You may say my prayers went unanswered. And honestly, reading these comments from my friend freaked the hell out of me (duh, of course).

There’s something not much people know about me, but now I’m gonna let the world know.

Ever heard of something called ‘Philophobia‘?

It’s the fear of… anything love related, fall in love, being in love, being loved, and such.

Let alone being in a relationship.

I know it’s ironic for someone as addicted to anything romance-related as me is afraid of being in love, but oh well, this isn’t the first time I face this so…

Okay, I’ll talk about this phobia later. Not really the point, although it is in some ways.

on with the story, I was so freaked out when I read my friend commenting, so I decided to just let the guy knows it from me instead of from the gossip, so after contemplating for minutes, I texted him (this is the exact words I sent to him, yes, I wrote him in english)

Look, what am I to you? Are we friends or are we more? For me it’s the latter, though I’m still unsure about it. 

Anyway, I wrote it in my blog and one of our friends read it which means I’m practically dead.

Geez, why is it always me confessing and not the other way around? Stay friends aren’t we?

Aren’t I sound so cool? Blunt and bold and a little bit insane?

Guess what he said in his reply? lol. He only said one word, 


So I explained that I do, though I’m not in any state of a relationship, I enjoy being with him and I just tell him because I don’t want him to know it from his friends instead of me. He answered that he feels the same but choose to take things slowly.

One thing I missed to explain though, that he’s not the one and only I have in mind, I love hopping from one guy to another (which isn’t a good habit but…), sure I enjoy his company, I love spending time with him and do something I’ve never thought of before, but there’s so much more of the boys world I want to unveil and try.

Anyway, we’ve known each other’s feeling, so is it that kind of open relationship? I don’t know. I felt silly when I remember how my romance related stories always end up this way, do you think confessing your feeling to every guys you like is a good thing? lol.

I think I should be thankful that my crushes have a pretty smart mind (remember the best friend?). *phew*

and by the way, I think I miss the best friend. Now it’s his turn to do the duty in the village for two months! Two months! Geez, I miss him muchies.

And and and! My brother is coming home today! Well… he’s coming this morning, and this night he’s coming back to the city he lives in. He’s just plain crazy, really. He arrived here 7 in the morning and back there again 7 in the evening? I need more time to snuggle with him and his craziness…


Not enough of our awesomeness?
Fine, I’l give you more.

I think he beats me in making faces, haha. He’s pro.

And oh, I got my new phone already. Though I’ve been wanting for a 5530 (and actually still secretly want it now), but I and dad couldn’t find it anywhere. So daddy dearest decided to just buy me this E63. Not bad ;D only less stylish, all the facilities I want in 5530 is actually owned by this phone too.

And my internet is BACK! The modem is working properly again! I don’t know what happened, I mean, we didn’t do anything! Really! Hahaha… I’m so happy!
Quite a long post to sum what happened in two days, isn’t it?

Lol. So most people thought those pictures are of me and the crushies, no he wasn’t, that’s my dearest little brother there! ;D haha. I checked it and yeah, I didn’t even explain who that is o.O my bad, lololol.

Artsy much?

Okay, I’ve tried my very best not to talk about him but it just seems like I can’t stop *sigh* yet.

If you haven’t already, I just did a guest blogging for my dear bloggy friend; Nikolett, go check it out :D ah well wait, go check it out if you aren’t bored with my story regarding the new boy, okay?

If there’s one similar thing about me and him, it’s the artsy side. He does draw too, and yesterday, when we chatted, he out of nowhere asked me if I want to help me paint his room. That was random, he just woke up, and stared at his room and ta-daah… he got the idea to re-paint it.

So of course I said yes, I didn’t even know if that was a right thing to do, I mean, that’d be awkward if one of our friends found me and him in his room painting. Right?

But I did it anyway.

We made the color ourselves (well, more likely, he made them himself), we got the green from blue+yellow, orange from yellow and red and baby blue from blue and white. That was really creative, I think because we only had yellow , white, blue and red and we could make so many colors out of them, not to mention shades.

The first wall done, it was just so random, I mean, he’s a guy on his 2o++ and what is it? A sunny day as his room’s background? And you no doubt, notice the oh so flowery field too.

Wait, before you accused me of doing something I didn’t do, the flowers was his idea. He draw the green field yesterday when he woke up and in his text message he wrote to me, “would you want to draw the flowers?”. See… He even painted some of the flowers too.

The sun was my doing, that’s why it’s not so circle, lololol.

Originally I thought we were just going to paint one side of the wall, but… seeing so many paints and colors available, I we just couldn’t help ourselves. This starry wall was my idea, because his original color was dark blue. I really like this one, simple but yeah, nice :)

This is just so… random I guess, we were running out of ideas already, lol. In the end we just used our palm to make some fun palm-painted wall. lol

My favorite, too bad I couldn’t take a full view of it, it’s a tree in the middle of the wall. And all those green leaves were made using our fingers, so we dipped our fingers on to the paint and had (too much) fun of it :D you all should try it too. lol. And the originally dark blue room was specially painted yellow for this side. Just because. lololol.

The image quality aren’t so good, huh? Let me explain, lol. It was night already, not much lightning and taken by his phone. Maybe later I should visit him again and take a better picture, lol. I just want to show them off. I’m pretty proud of what I’ve made today :D

We started at about five and when we finished, oh! It was nine already! Time flies really fast when we have fun, eh?

Now, if only writing thesis is as easy and fun.

La vie en rose

Posted in girl talk, moments in life, that guy by littletiara on February 28, 2010

This is, like I’ve said, scary to write about something uncertain. But I guess I just can’t help it. Now I just need to pray silently none of my friends read this.



So we’re gonna talk about Mr. Swept me off my feet?

He is not, let me repeat, not handsome, at all. He isn’t coming from a well-off family either, you may not know but I am kind of a materialistic girl who usually fall for boys in cars. Compared to the best friend, or my other crushes, he is like nothing. But these facts are what drawn me closer to him, if he isn’t handsome, why the hell I like him? How the hell did he make me fall for him without cars or any other bling-blings?

He and I, we are two different people from two very different worlds.

I spent my first (at least) 13 years moving from one big city to another in Indonesia, I never really have childhood friends, my favorite toy had always been the computer and anything technology related.

He? He spent his entire childhood in his little town with his friends, playing kite and feeding cows. His email password is the last thing he would want to remember.

Growing up, I learnt, which later become a habit, to go to malls, beauty salon and some other places where I can spend my money on, and most of all, I am one who keeps my image good. I play nice to everyone, I was taught to and I found nothing wrong with that. I grew up with manners, things like barf, fart and even yawn aren’t supposed to do in public, not even to talk about it.

He, however, is a wild one. He’s an adventurer who had gone visiting one forest to another, discovering some more new caves or beaches, and play hide-and-seek with lions, or some other beasts. When he has nothing to do, he will go rafting. He farts everywhere, and do things as he wants. He rarely take a bath and when he does it will take forever.

See how worlds apart we are?

But I guess what they said is right, opposites attract.

p.s. rereading this, I suddenly realized how short this is. Guess I’m all too smitten to even write more ♥
