Experience dating with ICE AGE in Dufan

“World is too small for the two of us. Time is so fast for the two of us. Everything seems so beautiful for the two of us.”

Perhaps it becomes so common metaphor for couple. All couple, whoever they are, what tribe, what nationality, what religion, whatever do you want to say, they will feel the same if they are in the deep feeling of love. Everyday becomes so happy, every time always want to be together, all the things become so beautiful.

I am not going to make poetry or some new metaphor here. I just wanna share any experiences about dating things in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta. Nowadays, dating things become so flat but fancy in Jakarta. There are so many good cafe and resto, many cinemas, many shopping mall that will pamper your needs of entertainment and fun lifestyle. But, it is already too mainstream in here, in Jakarta. Every weekend you can see so many couple walk, holding hand and smiling in shopping mall, in cinema, and enjoy fancy dining or lunch in luxury place or just fancy places. We will easily find those places in seconds in Jakarta.

Getting bored and want to experience new style of dating? Well, try to visit your childhood place, amusement park, Dufan!! Yup, Dufan!! Do you still remember about your childhood, when you went to Dufan with your parents and siblings? Enjoy every attraction in there and laughing so happily or crying so loudly?

Haha!!! Try to experience that feeling again with your boyfriend or girlfriend? Or perhaps for you newlywed, it is also fun to give a little spark in your life. >o<  Perhaps many people will say you are alay (it is a term for those youths who always going around in group, so noisy, and can be found in so many public places, especially the cheap places in Jakarta) because nowadays Dufan is full with alay.

No need to worried about that!! Even though you will still fin many alay there, but, i will let you know, it is kinda entertainment thing for you, life entertainment!! LOL!! Ok, stop about this alay topics. Continue with Dufan. Don’t you know, Dufan has changed a bit. Now, you can try to compare Dufan with Universal in Singapore, wait, not at all, just one attraction. Haha!! Yup, there is one new attraction, ICE AGE!! But, you have to be prepared too. Before enjoying this attraction, you have to follow the queue until at least 2 or 3 hours. Because even though i have arrived there from 11.30 and the Ice Age attraction is opened at 13.00, but the queue has reached the 2 hours waiting spot. OMG!! Could you imagine???? Really, Indonesian people, especially Jakartan knows to make the queue so long for new favorite place. Hilarious, isn’t it?

Well, The concept of Ice Age is almost similar with so many attraction in Universal, you have to ride a boat to walk through the whole of ice age attraction. But, do not think that it is similar with Istana Boneka (Doll Palace), because it is completely different. You will feel totally like in Ice Age era, so cold, you will shiver a lot there. and, not stopping only there, suddenly they will make you startled with the water spray, with the sudden move like going up up going down in fast speed, and get wet with water splash. And could you imagine, getting wet in the cold ice temperature? Yes!! Gorgeous!! You will feel the tiring of 3 hours queue is totally paid. It is the best attraction in Dufan now.

Wait, it is not finished here, LOL, in Ice Age area, there are 2 attraction that you can choose. First is the one that i told, the second is the shaking boat like Kora-Kora. You can choose which one is your preference. But, my suggestion is the first one, because it makes you feel like in Universal Studio, and especially for couple, you can have a reason to hug your boyfriend or girlfriend because of cold!! HAHHAAH!!!

I apologize i cannot really take many pictures about Ice Age in Dufan. But you can find it in Uncle Google. LOL!!

Enjoy your experience in Ice Age soon!! I bet you it is FUN!!!

I, people, we, as human, we did the right and wrong things. We think,  we choose, we decide, and we make the action. All the things have the good and bad impacts. Whatever we did, we have to responsible for the things that follow it. As a human, i make lots of mistakes. As a human, i choose lots of wrong decisions. As a human i walk on the winding paths.

I have to face every single thing temptation, obstacle, and all of exam of the life. I did wrong, again, and again. I apologize, again, and again. I retry, again, and again.

This is my silent regrets for everything that I have done.

Sincerely,

Little Green Frog

Married or Not

It is a nice story that i found.. I want to share it because it is a good and very touching story..

【 Marriage 】
When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes..

Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?

I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn’t talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn’t love her anymore. I just pitied her!

With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn’t have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane. When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.

In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn’t want anything from me, but needed a month’s notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month’s time and she didn’t want to disrupt him with our broken marriage.

This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day. She requested that every day for the month’s duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request.

I told Jane about my wife’s divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully.

My wife and I hadn’t had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don’t tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.

On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn’t looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.

On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me. On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn’t tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.

She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.

Suddenly it hit me… she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.

Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it’s time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day.

But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn’t noticed that our life lacked intimacy. I drove to office…. jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind…I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore.

She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won’t divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn’t value the details of our lives, not because we didn’t love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart. Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away. At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I’ll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.

That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed – dead. My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push through with the divorce.
— At least, in the eyes of our son — I’m a loving husband…

The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves.

So find time to be your spouse’s friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage!

If you don’t share this, nothing will happen to you.

If you do, you just might save a marriage. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.. .

Past is Life Experiences

I always wondering way I have done this, why God give me life’s temptation like that, and so many typical question like that..

Sometimes I read a good book, or great quotation about life and find out that God has plan or God never give you something that you cannot handle..

Sometimes I also realize that people always say that nothing is coincidence.. Everything is under God’s plan and something like that..


Last nite, I went hang out with my friend, Evelin.. She also come with 2 friends of her.. We talk so much about life, philosophy, past, and experiences..

From Eve’s friends, I learned a lot.. I know they have a lot of life’s experiences, coz their ages show it up.. 😀 They share about their life, their effort, their failure, their principles, their love life, their view of life, and so many great things that I will never get from people in my age..

They teach me how people have to give thanks coz they have past.. Human are being human coz they have past.. But you have to get out from your past trap.. Life must go on, guys..

You have to remember about your past, coz it’s your life experiences.. The most experience thing in this world is experiences.. You cannot buy it with money.. You buy it with your life, your blood, your tears.. You can use your past to learn how to be better and not going fall to the same stupidity..

People always appreciate others who has a lot of experiences in their life.. So, never, ever, regretting your past.. Give thanks for that, and make it as your life experiences.. But, remember!!! do not get along with your past, even being trapped in.. Past is past.. You will have a great future if you learn from your past.. But, you won’t have future if you still stay with your past shadow..

Learn from it, guys… Your past is your life experiences, not your future!! 😉

No Tears for Last Day

Huff, finally this day come..

I also always use my leisure time to having fun with my office mate.. I smile, laugh, and cry with them..

Every single minute of my last time are very precious.. I will keep it in my deepest memories..


Aldo, Kak Mira, Reo, Sherly, Peo, Chitra, Audry, Mbak Rama, Pak Steven, Pak Makmun, Bryan, and all of previous member of Your Magazine Family, I’m gonna miss you all..

Maybe, we had precious moments that will always make us smile..

Maybe, we had the most magnificent love that is unforgettable..

 

But,

we can’t be stay in our memory..

we can’t be trapped in our past..

 

Like buying a ticket for the show..

The show must go on even though the player get problems..

Like starting a competition..

The competition still exist event though the participant get troubles..

 

Life is just the same then…

Don’t ever go back to the past, but don’t also be worried with the future..

Remember, God will never be late or too fast..

God will be on time in His plan..

 

So, just enjoy the show..

 




Self Picture

Just sharing from my friend.. 😉

Ada EMPAT syndrome yg merusak gambar diri manusia:
1. TAKUT GAGAL = KETAGIHAN SUKSES
Ini membuat seseorang ingin mencapai standard tertentu untuk merasa berharga. Ciri – ciri orang ini:
– Sangat perfeksionis
– Mengejar kesuksesan dengan cara apapun

2. TAKUT TERTOLAK
Seseorang yg merasa harus diterima oleh orang – orang supaya merasa berharga. Ciri – cirinya itu:
– Ingin menyenangkan orang – orang supaya diterima
– Takut kesepian
– Rasa tidak aman
– Mudah tersinggung
– Takut dikritik

3. TAKUT DIHUKUM = KETAGIHAN RASA DITUDUH
Pastinya setiap orang pernah bebrbuat kesalahn dan jatuh dalam dosa tapi sebenarnya selalu ada kesempatan buat kita untuk berubah tapi lebih banyak orang memilih untuk terus hidup dalam rasa tertuduh. Orang yg seperti ini biasanya:
– Terintimidasi
– Sulit untuk dekat dengan Tuhan
– Suka menghakimi orang lain
– Suka menyalahkan orang lain

4. RASA MALU = KETAGIHAN KEBIASAAN BURUK
Selalu saja merasa tidak PeDE alias minder karena tidak bisa menghlangkan kekurangan dalam diri sendiri. Ciri – cirinya:
– Sombong atw tertutup
– JaIm
– Terikat dengan kebiasaan buruk

Jadi, apakah anda termasuk salah satunya? Jika ya, mulailah memperbaiki gambar diri anda dengan meminta bantuan Tuhan. Jangan sampai gambar diri kita yg serupa denganNya hancur. May God bless u ^^
