I have to cancel my plan for June. Arrrrrgggggghhhhh. I can only take leave starting August. Guess I'll just the save the money for now, or perhaps, get myself a pair of Nine West shoes, no? ;p

Bend & Twist & Fold

This flexible metal chain is so versatile!! You can wear it as a necklace, bracelet, headband, and even as belt if you have more than one...for you Indonesians who are interested, you can get this in Metro (Plaza Senayan or Pondok Indah Mall)...:)

My Saturday

During the day, I went out for lunch with my parents and did some grocery shopping (this is like something I always do on Saturdays hehehhehe)...

I also bought my favorite black eyeliner from Shu Uemura, which is extremely waterproof and highly recommended!! :D When buying the eyeliner, the lady also offered me a green-colored mascara, which actually looked good on me!! Hehehe....too bad they were out of stock so I had to leave my number for further notice if they have it in stock later...






Then at night I met up with my friends, basically to welcome our dearest friend, Adit, who just got back from traveling around the world (literally!)....I looooooove my friends so much hehehe...thank God I still have them when Sharjeel and my lil' sis aren't around...:)

Happy happy happy...I really had a good day today...:)

PS: Sharjeel calls me a shopaholic, but he himself just bought 4 shirts and a trouser in 1 day!!!

So who's the shopping freak now, dear? :D

Quote of The Day

"The truth is, if you asked me to choose between winning the TdF and cancer, I would choose cancer. Odd as it sounds, I would rather have the title of cancer survivor than winner of the Tour, because of what it has done for me as a human being, a man, a husband, a son and a father".

When Your Heart is Blue

A Search for Identity

When I think about my current job, I must admit that I love it. The office, the friends, the culture and the relaxing environment couldn’t be any better, seriously. But then again, being in such a comforting zone does not stop me from applying for other jobs that might offer me ‘more’ (you know what I mean ;p). So there I was, browsing through job vacancies around Asia, trying my luck in big companies that I know would provide all the benefits I need. And I got called by one of em…an oil & gas company. I couldn’t stop smiling, feeling soooo proud of myself that at least my CV was considered.

So there I went for the first interview. If I must evaluate my own performance at that time, I think I did pretty well heheh…and so I got called for a 2nd interview. Now this is where the entire dilemma started. I was like, a 2nd interview? But what if I get the job? I love my current job! I don’t have any clue or interest in oil and gas! What am I supposed to say? Well anyways, I came for the interview despite whatever I had in mind.

During the interview and test, my brain just couldn’t focus. Every time the interviewer asked me a question, my mind seemed to be like on another planet . I realized, that at that very moment, I was doing the wrong thing. So I messed up. My answers had no quality, and the enthusiasm I always show about a certain job just disappeared. I screwed up, which if I think about it now, was unconsciously done on purpose probably so that I won't get the job :D

A few days later, I got an email, saying that they won’t proceed my application. And you know what? That was like one of theeeeeeeee most relieving moments. A little bit of regret, but again, relieved :)
Bottom line: money isn’t everything. It may blind us some times, leading us to the fantasy that having the ability to buy everything we want is the best thing ever. But at the end, working is about doing what you love. Even though that job would most probably give me a salary 3 times larger than my current one, forcing myself to be interested in oil and gas just isn’t right. It may give me the pride of having such a fancy job in the eye of the others, but lying to myself would just hurt myself. Better do our best at what we love, rather than just do good at what seems best.
