After weeks of planning and delays, S and I finally went for our very first scuba diving lesson today...soooo muuuucchhh fuuuun! Venue was good, instructor was very professional, and the whole experience was somehow very refreshing...yay!
The act of collecting thoughts is most of the times underrated. What people often value and appreciate is the view of someone running here and there working till late night with his or her cellphone constantly ringing being reminded of meetings one needs to attend. And yet those who sit quietly at home thinking what to do next is perceived as lazy and has nothing to do.
Collecting thoughts does not translate to doing nothing. It's the door to opening everything.
Diana (pronounced with long 'ī' and 'ā') is an adjectival form developed from an ancient *divios, corresponding to later 'divus', 'dius', and in the neuter form dium meaning the sky. It is rooted in Indoeuropean *d(e)y(e)w, meaning bright sky or daylight.
It's been such a long, busy week...woah! Not blogging for 5 days feels sooooooo long hehehe...
So I've basically been caught up at work...I love working from coffee shops btw. And it's weird because I don't drink coffee at all hahah...you guys might not believe this but I've never drunk coffee my whole life even just a sip. I enjoy going to Starbucks, Coffee Bean and the like but I would always order hot chocolate milk, tea or just water...:)
Moving on...the Ideafest 2011 workshop was so much fun! I think it made me realize how much I'm into coaching, mentoring or sharing...I'd probably end up being a lecturer one day...:)
I think I ate something wrong that day during the workshop though that I ended up vomiting 7 times in half a day. Parents took me to the hospital and I was diagnosed with food-poisoning. Thank God I'm so much better now...:)
To end the week: CRANBERRIES. Seriously, Dolores is THE BOMB. I've loved her since I was in Junior High School and she will always have that special place in my heart. I love love love Cranberries and Dolores's weird moves.
"Diana, do you always go for branded items?"...absolutely not! I'm very open to any kind, branded and non-branded, local and international, new and old. As long as I like it, I'll definitely go for it. In fact, I very much enjoy shopping at flea markets like Pasar Senen and Gedebage. Fashion is fun! :)

Btw, I've just updated my Up shop with a new program called the "LEVEL UP Scholarship Program"...yay! From now onwards, for every Up shoes sold, Rp.5.000 goes to a scholarship for a low-income child. We now have one scholarship student already, a 12-year-old girl who just started her junior high school (read here). If you know any child who also needs support and has great determination in his or her studies as well, it would be so great if you could also share the information with me so Up can help...:)
Thank you so much before, everyone! :)
S: "Can I drive you home tonight?" Me: "It's okay, babe. I can drive myself." S: "Pleeeaaase? I don't want you to drive by yourself." Me: "Okay then...thanks, babe. Btw, I got you this DVD." S: "Ooohhhhhh wowwwwwww. Babe, can you go home by yourself?" Me: "So you can watch the DVD tonight?" S: "Yeahh.."
Was chatting with S, reminiscing about our times in Nottingham University...it truly was one of the best times I've ever had...:') Life was very peaceful and simple, and it was perhaps the only time in my life where I really enjoyed spending time in the library reading lots and lots of books. Studying was just such an enjoyment...:)
Anyway, currently super loving my Polly shoes in floral & pink...this is by far my favorite Up pair! :)
