Double Two!

It’s the 20th of November 2008.

Musicaholic was walking to the office in the morning.

Reached and found her division empty like her wallet…

Her manager and colleague were out for the company’s organized seminar in Ritz Carlton (she knew this the day before already la)

So she was left alone in the office….

Because there are only 3 people in her division.

Accompanied with her ‘darling’…

And then she found out that her lovely shoes were…

What a start for a birthday…

After 9 hours of calling companies and updating database, she finally went home happily…

She was walking carefully not to tear the shoes’ soles away…

When she was in the intersection in her housing area, suddenly she felt something wrong with her right shoe…


So she walked with a sole-less right shoe and almost-sole-less left shoe home.

And she reached home safe and sound.

As the night come, she was waiting for her mummy and daddy to come home…

She watched TV, fell asleep for a few minutes on the couch then she heard someone trying to open the door…

Daddy’s back!

Then not long after that, mummy’s back!

She presented her with an ice cream cake! 😀

Mom: I like the candles, cos it’s double 2.

Me: ……………..

After awhile the family went out for a nice birthday dinner

Ya ya I know what you are thinking. Retarded right?

They had delicious dishes…

Started with the appetizer (complimentary)

It’s char kuay! Deep fried and sugar-coated. Sweet! A bit too sweet for her liking tho.

And then the main dishes came…

And birthday must eat noodle wan, right?

Musicaholic became a sudden noodle master.

They are so delicious she couldn’t tahan anymore….

Seemed that her daddy also couldn’t tahan…

After a very filling dinner (they tapao half of the duck because their tummies were reaching the maximum capacity), they went inside a shop….and to Musicaholic’s surprise….

*That one is to be continued on the next post. Mwahahahahaha*

Then they went home and it was camwhoring time with the cake!

She was so excited with the ice cream cake…you know la, she is a bit kampung. Never eat cake wan!

But but but….

The candle melted and stained the cake…. 😦

But still, the family couldn’t resist the cake…

Oi oi look at the camera lar!

Ok that’s better. Although her daddy still looked like wanna dig into the cake straight away.

That was the end of the day. So let’s wish her a…


Ahhh…I’m getting older….

Mommy’s Birthday!!!

1st of November marks the 54th birthday of my beloved mum!! 😀

We had dinner in this old-style restaurant in Juanda area with Cintan and her parents (she’s now becoming the only child as well as her sis and bro are away in Perth and Bandung. Lol)

This restaurant has been around for soooooo long. Even mum said that (she thinks) the last time she visited this restaurant was before I was born! 22 years ago wei!

The food was A.W.E.S.O.M.E!!

Each and every dish is FREAKINGLY GOOD!!!!

For starter, we had soup. Cintan and I chose the corn&crab soup while the rest chose asparagus&crab’s

The soup is quite special because when you order corn&crab soup in other restaurants, you will find that the crab meat has already been torn into small pieces, but this one….

OMG damn big I tell you! The meat is so tenderrrrr and juicyyyyyy I like!! :D:D

Moving on to main dishes…

Tahu Tausi with Salted Fish

The sauce is so nice and the salted fish is so crunchy! A right combination! 😀

Cintan and I especially looooveeeeeee this next dish:


The taste isn’t like those mayo prawn you find in other Chinese restaurants. This one is oh-my-god-sooooooo-damn-good I couldn’t stop munching on them.

Butter-Fried Pigeons!

All of us loooooooveeeeeeeeee the sauce!! super delicious! We even pour it onto rice and eat them just like that. Yes, it IS that good!

Omg I really wanna go back to the restaurant at this very time! >..<

I think this is pak choi. Forgotten. Lol

The veggie also damn nice! 😀

Gerapu fish

Also nice!

And a birthday dinner wouldn’t be complete without…

Birthday Mee~!

Yummm yummm…

Dammit! I’m really salivating now >.<


I keep on saying that but I don’t care cos they’re so nice can die!

But but but….

when the bill came out….

…Rp 1,459,150!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

O…M…G! I was seriously s.p.e.e.c.h.l.e.s.s …………………………


Mum : Hahahaha nevermind la. If it isn’t my birthday I also won’t eat here.

The fact is, the prices here has always been oh-so-expensive (quoting Mum).


But then again, it’s very worth it la ^o^

And then innocent me didn’t realize that my voice volume was quite high…

Me : Gileeee nasi 3 mangkok Rp 29,700! Amit-amit dahhhh! *while starring at the bill*
(Rp 29,700 for 3 bowls of rice?! Crazy ar?! o_O)

Cintan’s mum : Hus! Jangan kenceng2! *while laughing*
(Hush! Don’t la say that out loud!)

Bwahahahahahahahaha…all of us were laughing after that! Because there were 3 waiters standing behind our table. LOLLL don’t care la. Hahahahaha

After a very satisfying dinner, we went to get some dessert…


Located not far from Sanur Restaurant, this is one of my favorite ice cream shops in Jakarta. Just like Sanur, this ice cream shop has also been around for sooooo long. Since 1932. Since the Dutch was still ruling in Indonesia. It has been a favorite for a lot of Jakarta-ers until today. I myself haven’t visited this shop for quite long already. Maybe around 3 years? Hmm…

Crowded on weekends…

My favorite! Nougat flavor! with lotsa nuts :D:D

The other flavors are strong in milk taste…

Ok, so we’re done with dinner and dessert. But we still didn’t wanna go home yet. Lol. Wanted to go karaoke at first, but all of the places we called were FULLY BOOKED!!

Can la if we want to wait….but it’ll be until either 11.30, 1am, or even worse, 2 am….

Forget about KTV then! So we hopped on for a movie instead! 😀

Weeeheeeeeee~ The Other Boleyn Girl!!

It’s really good! I love the story line, and particularly I loveeeee the settings and costumes!! I am always into those classic stuffs.

And about the story….well, watch it for yourself! Although it ended tragically, but still I recommend it! 🙂

Very Berry nice!!

Nice dinner, nice dessert, and nice movie.

We watched it at 11:45 pm, and ended at 1:30 am…

Shall we go KTV after that? :p

LOL we want la, but the parents were tired already so we went home.


On the Sunday (2nd Nov), my biao jie came with her hubby and 2 little ghost of her. Lol

Ryan couldn’t resist the delicious strawberry birthday cake…

LOL omg he’s so cute laaaaa!!! :D:D

Ok la, I wanna end this post now.

Happy Birthday Mummy!! I LOVE YOU!!! 😀

My super belated 21st bday photos

(Yes yes yes, I know this post is super duper late. Late for almost 3.5 months! lol. Actually I have type this post out like…1.5 months ago? But I haven’t published it due to laziness of photo editing. I had to edit so many photos la *which in the end I decided to just resize them as they were too many…Lol :p*. You see what happens to my “Muchi in Beijing” post. Hahahaha)


I got 2 surprises from friends on my birthday:

20 November 2007, 00:00

Wuaaa..cheese cake cheese cakeeee!!! *drooling*

Me: “Share me some la, you rakus!!!”
Muchi: No wayyy!! Get off get off! this is all mineee!!!”

My roommate kisses me! Muach!

With my “mak” and…oi, I took picture with you oredi la, J!

Rita, Jess (, and Helen

Muchi was so obsessed with the cheese birthday cake that he kept on disturbing me so he could run away with the cake…

And finally, a group photo ^^ …

Thanks gals! Love u all. XOXO!

20 November, erm…around 11pm I supposed…

I was just went back to my room from Muchi’s. Was burning photos into a CD (and will went back upstairs after it’s done) when he called and asked me to go upstairs to his room because he wanted to say something…

“Later la. I am burning photos into CD for you right now. I will go down as soon as the burning is done,k?”

“Nevermind the burning la. Just come down now. Quick quick!!”

“ mafan la. why didn’t you tell me earlier on?!” *getting pissed a bit*

“I forgotten. Come down now. Ok ok?”

“Haihzzzz so mafan. Ok la ok la!!” *pissed*

So I left the burning process and went upstairs. Since his card key is with me, so I can open the door by myself…

then I saw LOTS of sandals inside the room…

I was like o_O

then I heard people suddenly keep silent after a being a bit noisy…

then I heard people singing Happy Birthday…

I was shock, then I saw Mei Ling, our ban zhang (erm..class representative), then my classmates, then some others…Helen was holding a birthday cake…

Awwwww..another birthday surprise for me! :))

Feeding the first cake to Muchi
Birthday facial ritual…

And the group photo…

Thanks a lot friends!!! 😀

After the birthday bash is over, I got another surprise from Muchi. But I won’t tell you what it is *winks*. Lol

Farewell dinner, Ko Nico & Cie Winy’s wedding, and random photos

Warning: Loadsa photos ahead!
Although it’s dying to wait for those photos to load *pardon my dial-up connection here…changing to broadband soon =D*, I’m still being patient to post them on my blog. I’m so nice, huh? Lol :p

Uahh…actually wanted to blog before I went back, but I had no time to do it because I was busy re-packing my stuffs since it was overweight already. At first it was 35 kgs! Omg! If I didn’t take some stuffs out, I would have to pay I dunno how much le *I dunwan to think about it*…count by yourself: KLM charge 12 euro for 1 kg of excess baggage! Omg! I will vomit blood!!

And they only give 20 kgs of allowed baggage for economy class..Yaaa 22 or 23 kgs is still acceptable lar..

And so Ah Boon helped me re-packed them…and Ta-daaaa…22 kgs! Plus around 12 kgs in my hand carry…lol.

1 day before I went back, I had dinner with my Ah Boon, my housemates, Achie, and Mata in Shogun. Kinda a farewell dinner for Me, Achie, and Mata. Lol.

Ah Boon and I reached there late because we were tired and rest for awhile. We went to my dentist in the morning, and then continued with breakfast and sight seeing in Kinokuniya. We reached home by 4:30 pm and need to go by 6:30 pm because the Shogun reservation is for 7:30 pm!

But Ah Boon was so tired already. So we decided to go a bit later then the others. And otw to 1U, the traffic jam was bad bad bad! It took us around 45 mins to reach there *ermm..but if no jam also it will take around 40 mins…lol*


Yesterday was the happiest day for Ko Nico and Cie Winy. They were tying the knot!

Congratulations to both of u! My music teacher has melepas masa lajangnya. Hahaha…Congrats! May two of you always stay together in harmony and produce another brilliant little musicians. Two musicians combined together should be super powerful right? Lol.

And it could be also said as my reunion with the SMI fellas. I met quite many of them there. Too bad some were not there…

While the groom and bride were busy taking pictures with the guests on the stage, we were busy taking pictures by ourselves. Lol. SMI fellas always can’t resist camera *wink*

The tired but happy bride and groom having their meal after the reception has ended. I couldn’t help but think how Ko Nico survived the whole day *since early morning..yeaa you know le, wedding has a LOT of preparation* wearing those high 7 cm shoes!

Ahh..and that day was also the 21st birthday of Ms. Teh Chen Yee!

Happy Birthday to Kedah from Jakarta =D


Some random pics…

Ah Boon and I like to play with this toy we found in a kids shop at The Curve. Forgotten the name. Lol. It’s like a DJ turntable. You can play with the two big round thing there and pretend you are DJ-ing.
Childish? Don’t care. Lol

This one was kinda old *a year ago*, but I just got time to blog about it. Lol.

I was in Indonesian Tatler magazine April 2006 edition! ^_^
Tatler is a monthly magazine reporting on high society and leading personalities. And nek, it’s not free. It costs IDR 50,000. Lol

Weeeee~ I am a socialite 😀


I always know that the government administration in Indonesia sucks. But this time I feel it myself…

It’s the list of potential citizens to vote for the new Kepala Daerah (Governor) to replace the current Mr. Sutiyoso…

When my mom told me about this, I couldn’t stop laughing…

I am married!!! ROFL!!

Dear grandma,

Happy birthday! ^_^
Thanks for being the best grandma ever! =D
