An imperishable, spectacular and chaotically-brilliant movie. The Dark Knight possesses the essence that should always exist in the handover from comics to the big screen. Sequence after sequence, this is the absolute glory. A great movie that does not give a single frame to breathe!! A real Gotham City, dominated by fear. Christian Bale, as Batman, played his role perfectly and truly charismatic.
But of course, the real star of the show is the late and great Heath Ledger, who steals almost every scene he's in as the villainous Joker. This Joker is not like the other renditions; he is the best. Downright evil, corrupt, insane, psychotic, terrifying. In every sense of those aforementioned words. More scary than funny, he shows audiences the Joker is undoubtedly Batman's most nefarious foe and his perfect nemesis, challenging him all the way. With a cynical smile, he proclaims in a scene where Batman is a freak to the public, like the Joker himself. The Joker is downright evil, and Ledger makes this performance legendary. I agree with the critics, sign me up for the petition where he deserves an Oscar.
But unfortunately, he's no longer with us anymore, even he couldn't make it to attend the first premiere of this movie. So disturbingly sad.. :( It is completely unfair that Heath's family and the world are going to miss out on such an amazing person with some of the rarest and rawest talent I have ever seen (remember Brokeback Mountain?). My heart goes to his family and his daughter.
This film just blew me away. Well here it is, one of the most anticipated movies of the year so far. (beside Quantum of Solace). RECOMMENDED!!

where : Kopi Selasar / Selasar Sunaryo Art Space
Bukit Pakar Timur No.25 -Bandung-
It was my first visit to Selasar Sunaryo Art Space. I've never been to that place before, shame on me!! I thought, maybe some of you, Bandung-ers had been to Selasar Sunaryo. I came with Dieter, his sis & his Mom. I fell in love with this place since my first step on the gallery! Oh how I heart SS! LOL
For those whom never been to this place, here's my quick recap.
Selasar Sunaryo is an art gallery, blended with a cafe, which made this spot be a perfect place to refresh ourselves. First of all, we can take a look at Sunaryo's gallery, mostly, paintings and sculpture. (pictures below were my favorites!!)
wanna have one in my house, very classy and artistic
After amazed by the arts, then we went straight to the cafe, named Kopi Selasar : An outdoor terrace coffee shop overlooking the mountain and hills. Conveniently serving exquisite fresh coffee specialties along with special coffee companion that will give you a personal experience, escaping from the tiring fast-lane of city-living.
If you feel tired, and need a refreshment, just come to this place! I really love the atmosphere, and the fresh air, which you can't get it in a central city. CooL!
There's one more spot in SS : Cinderamata Selasar. It provides you with the exclusive art reproductions, cards, exhibitions posters and crafts. The distictive book range features fine arts, Indonesian art, design, architecture, contemporary literature, photography and exhibition catalogue. There was also Japanese art books and magazine. My sister got it for just IDR 5000! Very cheap!! But it contains loads and loads of great drawing and arts. It's ashame how art doesn't get much appreciation here in Indonesia.
Jeez I almost forget one thing that make this place is more special : there are loads of hot spot to snap a picture!! LOL. While his sister busy to look at the "Cinderamata Selasar", I also have my own activity : took a picture everywhere!! I won't post all the photos. I'm afraid it'll make you wanna vomit! LMAO!
After all.......... Can't wait for my next visit!!

OMG read this touching story
It is so sad, yet touching..
Reece Fleming was diagnosed with cancer back in 2004 when he was just 4 years old.
He battled the disease for years until this May, when doctors gave the 8 year old boy only a few weeks to live. The family decided to try and help him achieve most of his goals before he would pass. And one of those was to marry his school sweetheart, Elleanor Purgslove.
Reece's mother said "When we found out that we only had a few weeks with him we tried to do absolutely everything with him that we could. Him and Ellie had been 'special friends' for a couple of years but then they broke up. We said we'd have a pirate party, and Ellie came. She went to visit Reece a few times in hospital as well."
Then during a recent laser tag party, Reece "proposed" to his little friend.
After she accepted, their parents arranged a pretend wedding at Reece's home (not the kids pictured above).
The families went out to dinner in the mayor's limousine and organized the wedding with rings and even a fictional certificate.
The kids got married on July 4th. And Reece told his mom, "I can go now," after his wedding wish had been fulfilled.
His mom added, "He was so proud of her, and we were proud of them both."
The following day after the wedding, Reece died at home with his family. During the funeral, the mourners followed a horse-draw hearse on foot.
His mom added, "Even on the Saturday that he died, he got out of bed and walked to the sofa. He always tried walking, right to the end, so we thought if he walked for us then we would walk for him."
What an amazing little boy.
God rest your soul, kid.

Last Sunday morning I got a message from my friend. She told me that one of my friend passed away in Malaysia.. She was only 22, and was battling with cancer these 2 years. And amazingly, no one ever knows that. Later I knew that she didn't want to tell her friends her problems, cos she didn't want to make them sad and worried about her. Nobody knows until the day she had comma.
She's my high-school friend. Very kind and friendly and funny. What more can I say? Everyone loves her, and we just don't believe that God called her very fast..
Shortly, I attended her funeral. The preacher gave a very touching speech and just blew everyone away. He thought that my friend was really a tough woman, and he's very proud of her, even he want to die the way my friend died. Cos according to him, my friend died in peace, and she already accomplish her job that given by God in this world. She thought that there was nothing more important in this world than our faith. Her biggest achievement was turning her parents into Jesus Christ (her parents don't believe in Christ). How sad was that?
I hope you'll find your way and I believe that God will take care of you.
I'll never ever forget you and our relationship.
God rest your soul. Goodbye my friend..

Basically, our love won't always be as sweet as candy, sometimes we have to face the sour and bitter taste from love. I'm truly grateful that I love a man who make me know all different taste of love! YUM!17 Signs you love someone.SEVENTEEN:You look at their profile constantly. ( My boyfriend barely updates his account, so this one is a "NO" )SIXTEEN:When you're on the phone with them late at night and they hang up, you still miss them even when it was just two minutes ago. ( Non-Sense. Come on, have you ever miss someone who just hang up the phone for just two minutes??
I think an hour would be more realistic )FIFTEEN:You read their Texts and Ims Over and over again. ( Erm... No)FOURTEEN:You walk really slow when you're with them. ( I disagree with this! My boyfriend is a pretty fast-walker! So am I. The only reason I walk a bit slowly is when my eyes point in a latest shoes collection at my fave store!)THIRTEEN:You feel shy whenever they're around. (Big N and O. Never been so shy when I'm with him. Thankfully, I can be 100% myself when he's around. So no need to feel shy. But if you do feel shy, I think you have to reconsider your relationship. You can't be all yourself when you're with the one you love? OUCH, that's painful darling. )ELEVEN:When you think about them, your heart beats faster but slower at the same time. ( Is it mean that I can easily die when I fall in love? I do not have an heart attack. Everything's normal and goes as the way it is. My heart beats faster and slower at the same time when I lied. I'm not a well-trained liar, however :P )TEN:You smile when you hear their voice. (Not only I smile when I hear his voice, I also laugh when I see his face, touch his hand, and pinch his chubby cheek. These are the reason why I love a man who have a very great sense of humor.)NINE:When you look at them, you can't see the other people around you, you just see him/her. (I'm not that paranoid I think. We live in a big big world. I also see someone else when I'm with him. )EIGHT:You start listening to slow songs while thinking about them. ( No no no. We're not a big fan of slow music. It's hard to recognize one slow song that remind me of him. Songs that pop up in my mind when I'm thinking about him are : Incubus, Foo Fighters, 30 Seconds to Mars, LP, and all. their friends )SEVEN:They're all you think about. (Am I going crazy then? No, not like that.)SIX:You get high just from their scent. (Does this mean he could be my dope? LOL. Of course nope. Can you imagine if you can get high for just only smell your lover's scent? Then all drug dealers would be face bankruptcy )FIVE:You realize you're always smiling when you're looking at them. (50 - 50.)FOUR:You would do anything for them! (Depends on the terms and condition. LOL. Don't get me wrong. I love love love him, but it doesn't mean I'd do anything for him. If I would, then my Love would gone all wrong. )THREE:While reading this, there was one person on your mind this whole time. (Purrffeecct!! Finally, 1 answer "YES" )TWO:You were so busy thinking about that person, you didnt notice number twelve was missing (Another "Yes". I don't think it's important so I didn't notice that)ONE:You just scrolled up to check & are now silently laughing at yourself. ( Nope. I'm not laughing at myself. I'm laughing to the person who write this TT. Can you just make something more useful, relevance, and closer from the truth ? I mean, your words are too dramatical and based on fairy tales! )
here are my own version "SIGNS U LOVE SOMEONE (and they love you too!)"
- Just one look from them, you can instantly know what's buzzing on their head. You just can read their mind.
- You can be 100% yourself. Cos if they love you, they wouldn't force you to be someone they expected. Despite they force you to always be yourself, and be a better version of "you". Love brings good influence.
- You devoutly accepted them the way they were and receive all their plus and minus.
- Love needs sacrifice, but you still can use both your heart and your head.
- There's no more secret between both of you.
- You'll still love them although they're getting fat or you find wrinkles on their forehead.
- Good time, bad time, you'll always be next to them for giving some supports and lift them up whenever they down and weary.
- You love their family just like you love yours.
- Comfortable when you're with them.
- It's hard to describe their position in your life, cos you consider them as your best friend, family, and lover at the same time.
- You can freely share all stories with them without even thinking that they will leak it.
- They are the first person you remember when you get up in the morning.
- When you miss them and try to make a call, they'll call you first. It means you both miss each other at the same time!!
- Your name tattooed in their finger! Aww isn't that sweet?

just saw this Angie's new flick, WANTED.
The action scenes were amazing... I was sitting on the edge of my seat on more than one sequence. Of course some of it's a bit far fetched but come on... Aren't MOST action movies like that? James McAvoy did an amazing job playing the average job who is suddenly told he has the ability in him to be a "wolf among the sheep". Angelina was very great. She does very well in roles like this and even though she doesn't have too many lines she pulls off her character who TRULY believes in what she does very well. Plus, she's hot. I mean, I'm a woman who doesn't particularly even like tattoos and I have a crush on her.. ;-) In all I highly recommend this movie. Great summer entertainment!

Well, yesterday on July 2nd, I was turning 21! Hmmph, what can I say?
I just feel lucky, cos I always surrounded by people whom I really love and admire, and most of all, they love me too :)
That's the greatest feeling in the world. ^^
Being 21... Nothing special, instead I've to be more responsible to myself, to my future, to my family, cos I already 21 now and I'm ashamed cos I haven't achieve anything special through my whole life ;(
My wishes are ..................................................................... (psst that's a huge secret!!!)
I've got three celebrations. There was an interesting story at Laos. I dined there with my mates, and they brought me a cake (thanks!!). When they sang a "happy birthday" song to me, few strangers who sit in front of us was singing that too. They're from Netherlands, very kind people, and they pray for me too!! So I slice my cakes and gave it to them. One of them ask me to took a picture with him, and I couldn't help but say yes. LOL.
Anyway, seriously, I really have a great time on my birthday. Thank you thank you thank you once again for all your greetings, your wishes, your cakes, your gifts, your prays, and all!! I really really appreciate it.
