The Croods is a comedy adventure that follows the world first modern family as they embark on a journey of a life time when the cave that has always been their home is destroyed. Travelling across the spectacular landscape, The Croods are rocked by generational clashes and seismic shifts as they discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures, and their outlook changed forever.

I'm so into The Croods. It exactly has a good point in viewing life, and also about family things, arguing-fighting-make up. Teach us how to survive through bad situation. I love the parent-child issue which so close with ours. Dady's little girl is growing up, fall in love, confront her vigilant father. They successfully mix slapstick humor, action and drama. Effortlessly fun! Each characters along with their daily conversation could evoke a whole story, made it alive. Some characters were named uniquely, out of the box, like "Belt" for a monkey, a pet that used as a belt occasionally, "Gran" for granny, and "Guy" for a nomad guy. I was barely laughing like crazy all the time. The visual oh-so-sophisticated in 3D! I bet you'll love it! After all, it's the best cartoon movie ever! 5 from 5 for The Croods!

Girls Talk

Friend: "There are many fish in the sea, dear."
Me     : "The thing is I just want Nemo! The one and only over the sea!"

When I look back through conversation (unfortunately I can't reveal in detail) with a lovely friend of mine, Shinta, I've captured a very silly part of me. As that kind of thought was popped on my mind, I wonder if I will be waiting Nemo for the rest of my life. Isn't it sounds tickle? Though this is harder to do than it sounds, there is a certain limit even for the things we are actually excited about. Keep in mind!

Review: Warung Orange

People in Solo have been talking about Warung Orange on social media and give a good review about the food. For the very first time I came to this place and saw the ambience, my respon was, "You don't be serious!". Despite the place itself looks so shoddy, their food has a statement. That is-so-called fine dining and moreover in a low budget. Warung Orange is located at Semanggi, Solo, near Kustati Hospital. They have Italian, Mexican and American cuisine on their menu. The price range for the meals starts from 15 K - 40 K, and 7 K - 18 K for the drinks. Recently, I finally had the time to come back for pleasing my tummy with one of my partner in crime Nanda Bagus . We ordered Beff Patty Steak (27 K) which served with salad, baby potatoes, and BBQ sauce and topped with three layers of cheese, and Chicken Parmegiana (20 K) as main course. Mine was tasted oh-so-delicious! We also picked blackcurrant ice tea (8 K), strawberry ice (7 K), and peppermint hot chocolate (8 K). As a dessert they offered Ebony & Ivory cake (18 K), definitely I said "Yes!". This cake has a richness chocolate tastes indeed! Dear chocolate lover, you gotta try this one!

Tik Tok

As time goes by, life was going to be more complicated than before. Sooner or later I should confront the fact that I desperately need a job. I'm a kind of person who can't bear waiting for uncertain things too long. I'm looking forward to having a job interview since I was graduated. Therefore I do many efforts, spent a lot of money and times, but I get nothing after all. It occasionally makes me very exhausted. Once, I had blamed God. Why was He hiding from me when I seek? However I found myself too boastful eventually, picturing me as if I will be able to reach my dream with my own hands.Then I put my tears in His hands, ask Him for give me a strength to through these hard times. For every prayers, He has made everything beautiful in its time. We'll have been receiving a bunch of happiness in return.

Finding The Key

When-klompen-meets-Eiffel's keychains
I have figured out there are so many ways to reach happiness. I'm happy just by chit chat with my relatives. I'm happy by brewing coffee. I'm happy while my bangs look stunning. I'm happy by seeing the picture of rain. I'm happy by having an intens communication with God. It's close when you realize. You should just simply find the key itself, open the door then enter into it. As simple as it is. Don't push yourself too hard for something you want the most or someone you want to be with. People say, what belongs to you, comes to you.


Step Forward

My heart beats a little more rapidly whenever I visit this blog. There are too many memories here. Yes, I have blogging off over broken-hearted period. However I'm back right now, leave it behind, and step forward :)
