This one is a question for you………

If you’re not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you’re not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call?
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all

I never know what the future brings
but I know you’re here with me now
We’ll make it through
and I hope you are the one I share my life with…

If I don’t need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don’t need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you’re not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
If you’re not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

I don’t know why you’re so far away
But I know that this much is true
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with
And I wish that you could be the one I die with
And I praying you’re the one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life

‘Cause I miss you, body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today
‘Cause I love you, whether it’s wrong or right
And though I can’t be with you tonight
You know my heart is by your side

I don’t wanna run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way I can stay in your arms?

I kept getting a past hit by Alanis Morissette stuck in my head:

"Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
when you think everything’s okay and everything’s going right
and life has a funny way of helping you out
when you think everything’s gone wrong and
everything blows up in your face"

Will you end up living a better life worrying about how things will not turn out fine?

It got me thinking about expectations and experience. In services marketing, the feeling of satisfaction comes about when a customer experiences better than what he expects, and vice versa.

After all, is life merely about meeting your expectations? Say, I’m picky about men when it comes to relationships – thus I’ve been single, and I don’t seem to be satisfied.

But does it mean I should start worrying about that, in essence reducing my expectations so that the chance of being satisfied will increase?

Seputar Kedodolan, tukar pikiran


Last night during coffee with a good friend, it occurred to me how in life while one thing leads to another, sometimes one person also leads to another.

When I first moved to Jakarta, I got to know him (Boy A) online who happened to live live nearby and had just returned from studying in Sydney. We decided to meet up in person, and he quickly became the first friend in my new friends circle. What followed was man A introduced me to yet another overseas Boy B, whom six months later brought a visiting friend out (Girl C). Six months later after returning home Girl C introduced me to Girl D online, yet another passer-by in Jakarta.Pc2kihmyr0q

Surely people meet people through their friends, or friends’ friends. In my case, it took three individuals and a year to meet Girl D. Had either Boy A or I decided not to log online for chat that day, all the twists and turns, all the encounters during my time here would not have eventuated.

It got me thinking; we go through everyday like a pinball machine. Once the ball drops to one side of aspects, it’s almost impossible to shift to the other side – it may only try to shift as close as luck and gravity dictate. Well what can you do? As they say, live with it.

So after all, what did the Girl D experience entail? Boy A, B and Girl C have since become good friends, there hasn’t been any Boy or Girl E and the pinball has almost reached the bottom hole.

Maybe time for another go.



Weeeeeeell….. Welcome back Mr. Jack Bauer!!!!!
wooooooooo hooooooooo….

As a fans of 24 series since the 1st Season, I’m freaking waiting for this season for about 20 months after last season’s shocking finale, when Jack Bauer was captured by Chinese government agents and taken, battered and bloodied, to points unknown. After a series of horrific terrorist attacks, USA President and his team of advisors, as well as Jack’s CTU colleagues, begin an unthinkable, nail-biting day.

24, it may not always make sense and people tend to heal fast in a 24 hours period, but it always keeps you guessing and excited. This season looks like it will deliver. The Non-Stop New Season of 24 picks up 20 months after the Chinese kidnap Jack Bauer! Without ruining a thing I beg you all to show this episode. It’s best TV show on Television. Each week I sit on the edge of my seat like nervous belly stunned and shocked with what the writers come up with next (Great works… Mr. Sutherland…!!!). This 6 four hours season premier lives up to its expectations!! You will poop yourself during the last minutes of episode 4 just like I did!!!


PS: as Macintosh user, I think Jack and CTU should ditch their smart-phones and use iPhone. Why? It has the most secured OS installed and it’s built by a company that’s more secretive than the CIA… huehehehehehehe… =P

An Inconvenient Truth

Yes, I saw the movie. Did I like it? Yes… I liked it. Did I love it? Not so much. I think it’s because for me, Gore was preaching to the converted. A lot of it I had heard and seen before. The evidence isn’t new for those of us already in the thick of it. I’m a lawyer, not an atmospheric scientist. I’m just interested in science and lends to scientific study. The movie was powerful because it SHOWED people what is happening while keeping the actual science jargon to a minimum. I think that aspect of it was amazing. What I felt the movie lacked was direction. Okay Gore…yeah…there’s all these problems; now suggest to me what the hell I’m supposed to do. Turning off a few lights is not the answer. When the movie finished I found myself kinda feeling like, "hmmm… interesting and amazing… so what are some ‘action items’ I can take away from that film". The movie could have provided a platform for change rather than a mechanism of promoting fear (but …on a positive note… awareness is there).

I’m happy I saw it and I do think it is something that everyone should see. It does make you think. But how many people have already watched this movie…and two weeks later have forgotten about it? Action and long-term messaging… it was missing it, who’s going to pick up the slack?

PS : I still looking for these Al Gore’s book. Can anyone help me find those book here???
