Of Mice and Men on Broadway!

Let me repeat: Of Mice and Men on Broadway!

I did regret the fact that I read the book tho because it made me... cry like a baby. Embarrassing. Steinbeck is not only an amazing author, but a man with a gold heart, witty, prudent and I am sure; the kind of person that is filled with discernment and foresight you would find hard to understand at first. They are all portrayed in all of his work, including in his letter to his son.

New York is in my bucket list, obvs. And tho I know I would not be there for this play, this kinda give me more reasons to go. Who knows what will be on the stage when I am there someday?

ps: Do not get me started with James Franco (heart)

A woman is a reflection of her man. Not.

Have you read this story that has gone mental in social media platforms?: Read here.
Some claimed that the story is not originally from the Pitt-Jolie couple. But, that is not my point of phrases here.

I would be doomed if I said never get butterflies in my tummy when a guy do sweet things for me. Oh how I love being treated like a princess. I do. And for Brad Pitt (or whoever the real person is) to do those acts in supporting the love of his life to be back on track is utterly amazing. 

However, I can only hope that "A woman is the reflection of her man." quote does not get translated and absorbed in such ways that women started to search for men that will define them. Love and support of a loving man surely can make a great impact in a woman's life. 

But, a wise lady once taught me that we should avoid searching for that first. 
Your man's being should be an addition to who you are, not a reason. A glitter to your "Not flawless but perfect." reflection, not the core of it.

So with my imperfect understanding, I should say... A woman, is a reflection of her dreams and hopes, her faith and her unbelief, her victories and her failures, her accords and her struggles... 

And only a damn good man can be part of that reflection of hers.

Close Your Eyes

I may not be the one standing for his concerts. But this one particular song has cast its magic spell and the last 2 lyrics is haunting me. In a good way.

To imagine that I will be able to say that someday to someone, is beyond my understanding. But, I'd like to think that it is possible :-)

Good job, Bublé.

All You Need is Less

How many of you have actually done this? I dare you to detach some stuffs, instead of getting more... Maybe this way, you will end up feeling even more content.

This is what I want to try to do:

Less judgment.
Less society drama.
Less hook with with social media platform.

Less self-centered mind.
Less clutter. Get rid of all those clothes I am no longer wearing since the past 6 months.
Less chats. 
Less... worry.

What's lurking in the back of your fridge?

It's pop quiz time again! Inspired by Emily McDowell, one of my favorite illustrators; What's lurking at the back of your fridge?
My confessions below;
  • Pack of Cheddar. And at least two cartons of soy milk.
  • Half-of-bottle of white.
  • A jar of sambal terasi that's like a year old (because I am one busy Indonesian lady with serious Asian taste bud and I just have no time to make my own sambal) Ha!
  • Three bags of denta stix for my babies.
  • Puckered limes. As I think every fridge must have them.
  • Cabe rawit. They look like this and is a perfect condiment for instant noodle for midnight snacking. Snacking? Yeah...
  • Two loafs of white bread and one loaf of brown bread.
  • Frozen peas. And one can of baked beans.
  • Serious amount of jelly beans. And I am not a sweet tooth. I think one of my friend gave it to me months ago... I cannot remember who!
  • Butter. Butter. Butter.
  • Grapefruit juice. 
  • Half-opened tonic water.
  • Aspirin
  • My lipstick. It was melting the other day because I left it in my friend's car. I really love the pop effect the color brings so I am trying to frozen it back. Dummy. 
Below is Emily's.
