Gone Baby Gone

leave a comment »

I’ve heard about this movie since last century (Right, I was overstating it!). I just had the chance to watch it today. It was as good as what I’ve heard. It was Cassey Affleck’s first “important” role in a movie, me thinks. Who knows from now on, he gets another important roles and become “bigger” than his big bro (Yep, he’s Ben Affleck’s lil bro). And I must say that I liked the ending. I believe that some people disagree with me but I really think that he did the right thing. You’ll see what i mean if you’ve watched the movie.

I also liked the opening lines :

I always believed it was the things you don’t choose that makes you who you are. Your city, your neighborhood, your family. People here take pride in these things, like it was something they’d accomplished. The bodies around their souls, the cities wrapped around those. I lived on this block my whole life; most of these people have. When your job is to find people who are missing, it helps to know where they started. I find the people who started in the cracks and then fell through. This city can be hard. When I was young, I asked my priest how you could get to heaven and still protect yourself from all the evil in the world. He told me what God said to His children. “You are sheep among wolves. Be wise as serpents, yet innocent as doves.”

By the way, Gone Baby Gone was directed by Ben Affleck. I guess that’s what they call “Hollywood’s Nepotism”!

Sneaky Sneakers (T)Shirt

with one comment

Last night, I was having a dinner with my old friends from college on behalf of Fania & Jono’s (a very late) graduation party. I’m not gonna tell you about the party, cause I forgot to bring my camera to capture the moments. When I got the pics of them, I might post them up here. 😀

T-shirt? Yep. That’s my new t-shirt which I got it from Fania. She gave me that shirt as a gift from her last trip to Bangkok, Thailand. Isn’t it nice? And it really fits me well. I was afraid it wouldn’t fit me well because it looks kinda small. Anyway, thanks Fan!

In The Need of Duffel

leave a comment »

On the weekdays, I carry two bags to work. One is for work-related schtuff and the other one is for gym schtuff, and plus a shoes bag. Though I keep one of them on the car, depends on my activity, I found it a bit annoying. If there’s a problem with my car then it’s become REALLY annoying.
Shortly, I need a decent and durable duffel bag so it’s still appropriate to use it to work and it contains ALL of my schtuff (MacBook and its kit, iPod, memo pad, agenda book, gym clothes and shoes, tumbler, cell phones, a pack of cigs, etc.). I’d love to have like one of these :

And of course, I need the affordable one 😉 I wonder if i can find one of those in “Gede Bage” market, hahah, I wish!

I Heart Lindsay Lohan

with 2 comments

Yesterday I bought some dvds on my way home. One of them is Lindsay Lohan’s I Know Who Killed Me. Based on the title, sounds cheesy right? Just another teen thriller movie, but whatever, it’s Lindsay Lohan! I love her since she played that twins on The Parent Trap. Well, okay I lied, I love her since she has “curvy” body 😀 Since then, everything bout her is hot, even when she was dealing with her drinking problem. You know the thing that they put on her ankle? It’s look good on her, I bet some people dying to wear that even they don’t have any drinking problem, hahah.

Okay back to the movie, it turned out to be a good one, not that good but it’s good enough to watch. As quoted by Maxim Magazine, it’s “Great Thriller”. Don’t mention it’s sexy also, indeed. Though I’m not sure what the reason of the villain did all the crimes is. I don’t want to spoil the movie to whom haven’t seen it yet, so I won’t tell you the ending of it. Need to know the sypnosis first? Just click here. But remember not to view full sypnosis, it may contain spoilers!

Happy watching!

Hello Yoga

leave a comment »

Finally, i took a yoga class at the gym today after more than 5 months since the last time i did it. I was struggling with all poses as i had expected before but I absolutely enjoyed it! Love the feeling after doing it, somehow it makes me feel so relax, focus, and fit. And my yoga teacher is as gorgeous as always (too much info? nah! 😀 ). The yoga practitioners at my gym are definitely growing since back then. The proportion of yoga practitioners between men and women are equal now. In fact, the dudes were the majority for today class. Anyway, I’m looking forward to meet my yoga teacher at the capoeira class next friday, yay!

Here I Am

leave a comment »

Here I am. Wide awake at this hour (2.45 AM). I should be enjoying my sweet dream (or having a nightmare) by this moment. Instead of it, I’m writing this blog and listening to the nice music from Tortured Soul. It actually kinda funny and or ironic, right? you know, “nice” and “tortured” are not likely to be put together in the same sentence. Anyway, I guess lots of things goin on my mind right now so they still keep me up til this late. Not bad things, nor good things. WTF?! Right, I have no idea what am talkin about.

Earlier I wrote down things that need to be done or to buy. Damn, those things cost me a lot. When i say a lot, i mean A LOT. Yeah, I need to start making priorities. But you know when the urge to do or buy something is come, hell…… you simply forget those priorities! Ah! Something just came up! I need to write another thing to do in my To-Do Lists. Wait.

*Writing down….*

K, am back! Ready? Alright, so I’m planning to have a day off today. What’s on my agenda? Hmm… I dunno… perhaps shiatsu? dvds hunting? working out? junk food day? swimming? buying one (or two) of those things? or just lazing around at home? Perhaps. Just perhaps. One thing for sure, am hungry right now! Goin to make some food in a minute. In the situation like this, don’t you ever feel extra GRATEFULNESS to the founder of microwave? Because I do, hahah. Microwave rocks! Hell, am starting to talk non-sense shits way further 😀

Alrighty. Buh-bye!

Regards,
d.

The Green Tea Effects

leave a comment »

Just had dinner at Sushi Tei and as usual I had chuka chinmi for appetizer. But this time, the taste of the “lobak” (what’s the english word for “lobak”?) was kinda way too bitter for me, not as usual! The chuka chinmi sushi was tasty like usual though. Anyway, I had green tea waffer ice cream (now i forgot what they call it in Japanese!) for the dessert. I like green tea and everybody does too, i guess. Lots of green tea drinks with various brands nowadays. Even Starbucks have a green tea drink on their menu. So we’ve heard that green tea is good for our health since ancient times, but do you know exactly what the health benefits of consuming it? Well, I’m sure most of you have no idea.


*taken from here.

So, here are just a few medical conditions in which drinking green tea is reputed to be helpful : cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, high cholesterol levels, cariovascular disease, infection, impaired immune function. And don’t mention that green tea can even help dieters.
