Aku Memanggilmu Ibu

A few months ago, aiming to join a short film competition, I sent my movie script to one production house in Bali. At first, I was only expecting to get a half sponsorship in producing the movie. Fortunately, the company agreed to do a full one. 
To share more, the movie script was an adaptation of my two short stories combined: Aku Memanggilmu Ibu and Mencari Bapak.

Sleepless nights and double hours, and 24*3 hrs of shooting time then become my additional routines for one month long. Not to mention the post production work. I cannot tell you how much I have learned from the experience. Film makers are exceptionally talented!

After waiting for a month after submitting the movie, I finally received the letter. "Aku Memanggilmu Ibu" (I Call You Mother) is shortlisted as Top 10 Finalists!

Three's a Charm: Three Current Obessions

Moving a few steps away from heavy topics, I want to ask: What are your current obsessions? Other than trying to keep my frizzy hair in sane shape, my current obsessions are as follows...

Yes, you've guessed it. "The Jungle Book" got me. I fell asleep watching "The Notebook" and I did not shed a tear over "PS. I love You". But I sobbed like a hungry baby during the scene of when Mowgli leaves the pack.
Kudos, Jon!

Obviously, my recent trip to Tanjung Puting has elevated my adoration over Dr. Birute Galdikas. And guess what is coming for me soon? My boyfriend has ordered the first copy of Reflections of Eden for me. Signed by the Dr. herself!

I am probably the last person who purchased them, I know! But it was so hard to find the right size for me. It took me almost a year! So at the moment, I am looking forward to wear them in as many events possible.
Here are some of styling tips I'd like to try: Stan Smith Styling Ideas.

Tell me yours, lovelies!

Tennis Club after this?

May is Gray

This is a coincidence that I am not happy about. 
As we are entering the month of May, our family received a horrifying news. My uncle is diagnosed with late stage brain cancer. He is a Junior high teacher, who spends his weekends leading the church's vocal group.

May is "Brain Cancer Awareness Month."
May is Gray.
May... suddenly becomes this sickening month that feels so relevant and so close with us.
May... becomes so real. May is now numbered for our family.

I cannot dispense any details on this subject just yet.
But if you are reading this... May I ask a simple prayer from you, please?
Just for my uncle. So that he will stand by God's grace with his wife and children to get through this.

That's all for now.

Three's a Charm; Three Easy Tips

We all know that health (physical and mental) is key to absolute happiness. But honestly it took me years to realize it!
Therefore, as someone who is determined to continue learning, I am sharing a few fun facts/tips that may be useful for others to read.

But first, need I remind you that this is nothing like a fashion blogger post. Because judging from my pose here... I cannot be one.

How to Look Chic
"Forget following the trend and stick with what is working for you." is the oldest trick in the book. And I love to obey. But throwing a little bit of trend here and there wont hurt. As long as  know how to carry yourself with it. If you do not have the body for a high-waist jeans and not sure if you can wear them, do not bother trying. BUT, if you want to wear them anyway, be confident about it. The way you stand will reflect in how comfortable you are and that should result in how chic you look. Or not. My friend Judith Kirana does not have that "Ideal size 10" but boy was she a stunner at all times!

Mother of an Angel Baby


Sometimes it makes me angry that my partner has a healthy, smart and beautiful daughter. 
Perhaps that’s a harsh statement.  But it's the truth. 
And if you'd like to know why I said that, I will need to take you to travel to seven years ago.
 
I remember my frozen feet.  The painkiller had worked numbing my back and belly. The cramp had disappeared. Leaving just me. And my feet.
I remember the doctor telling me: "Please pray according to your beliefs, Ma'am. I am sorry you may have lost your baby."

I remember looking at him trying to find something wrong with his words. I told him he was wrong.

He was.

And the next morning, I gave birth.
