Don't worry, you won't know I love you
Don't worry, you won't know I'm crying
Don't worry, I won't tell anyone
Don't worry, just go away.

Again. Next Sat!

We're holding a garage sale again, this time at my dad's in hope of earning more profit. So much for making money, huh.. *sigh*

Garage Sale Day 1..

..was a blast! We had sooo much fun yelling "GARAGE SALE SIR/MAM, CLEARANCE SALE UP TO 70%!" to people. We were dancing around like a group of crazy adults while making noises to every car or motorcycle or anything passing my garage. I even yelled at a cat -__-.

Around 2pm an uber-cute kid arrived at my house and starting to please her eyes with goods we sale. She couldn't keep smiling to us and mumbling "aduuh.. lucu-lucu semua aku bingung," meaning : "I love all of it! I'm confused!". She stares at a pink shorts, pink pants, pink polo shirt, and anything pink! So then i asked "You love the color pink don't you, sugar?", "I love anything colorful" she replied while giving me her cute smile. She decided to buy my pink shorts and went home with even wider smile on her face. We love her!

Later on 3pm, she came back! "Hey! You came back!," we said. "My mom just gave me money so why don't I spend it here", "What's your name and how old are you?", "Bunga, I'm in 4th grade". A young shopper! I'm her fan! She has a good fashion sense for a girl that age since she always picking up good stuffs from our shelves. After a long hour of picking up goods while joking around with us stupid adults, she finally decided to buy one white tube top to wear to a wedding reception she will be attending, a peach t-shirt, and a yellow skirt. "15 plus 20 plus 15. Fifty! Here's your fifty thousand rupiahs," she counts herself.

"Bunga why don't you bring your mom to shop here?"
"She's bed resting. She's sick"
"Oh we're sorry to hear that. How is she?"
"She has tumor. Pretty bad"
"...." (silence), I tried to break the silence by offering her a t-shirt..
"Hey why don't you buy this t-shirt to surprise your dad?"
"He's dead"
"Oh I am so sorry.."
"...." (silence)
"...." (silence) <-- this is me feeling guilty

7pm, "HEY SISTERS! I brought my english teacher and a friend to shop here!", and she end up buying another skirt. LOL shopper kid. We fell in love with her since today. She's the most friendly kid we've ever seen! Come back again tomorrow! Freebies are waiting for you, Bungaaa <3

I'll post the pics of our garage sale tomorrow :)

Early Ages - Present.

In the picture above is me (9 years of age), Gahralsyah Aras a.k.a Gahral (8), and a orangutan grabbing my boobs :s. The picture taken in 1998 at Ancol, Jakarta. It's funny how time goes by so fast without us noticing about it. We have been friends since ages ago, since I was 4 and he was 3 i guess. Or i was 5 and he was 4? I can't really remember. We both go separate ways now, living our own adult life. He and his college are doing well eventho he keeps complaining about how my father's advice ended up making him taking a wrong major in college. We are not families and not related. But somehow i feel like we are. His family treat me as if i'm a family member and so does my family to him and the rest of the gang. Our parents are now best friends. We introduced them! I remember our fav movie, Three Little Pigs, which we can watch 3 times a day at that time. "Two little pigs watching three little pigs," his mom mocked us with that funny joke :D. Enough pep talks. Here are our present pictures as an adult.

Earth Day 2010!

What will you do to save earth? Start by doing little like using a tumbler every time you go to Starbucks to enjoy their delightful coffee or reduce your use of tissues.  Imagine how many trees you will save!! (tissue companies will not be happy seeing this blog post :s). Lots of trees, lots of less asphyxiating air. Less pollution, healthier people. It goes in circle. 

Wonderful isn't it? Let's take part in this campaign! 

Even the tiniest amount of your contribution counts!

An Old Friend

Millica Sumarno, an old friend / (ex) photographer I met on deviantArt years ago, I wonder how she's doing now. She moved to Australia to continue her study and quit the world of photography for I don't know what reason. She's one of my closest friend on deviantArt and I'm hoping that she would go back into the art world soon. I collaborated with her to make an artwork for fun once. I'll post the artwork soon.

Eventho we never met in person, we were pretty close as an e-buddy. Well, we tried to meet a couple of times but always ended failed. Anyways, I adore her as an artist, as a photographer, and as a friend. She said she'll come back to Jakarta in July. I told her "Lets meet up! I'm damn tired of being your e-buddy" and she agreed :)

Here's one of my favorite Millica's artwork.

Made in December 23, 2006. Captured by Millica Sumarno

"I see too many other wrong men dying
for stealing their dreams and buying time
i never thought i spend these nights alone
now i walk the streets trying to find my way back home
though in your eyes i saw the rising sun

still i sold myself for a badge and a gun

white linen on your back like the secrets on your mind
the past you're trying to hide and the life you looked behind
passive days and neon nights, the guilty hearts and alibis

the streets run red like an ocean drive,
but can our love survive?"
, She quotes.

I know this work is a mess cos to be honest I did this in some kind of hurry (I'm SLEEPY!)

The title "Take Me With You" comes from my mind. It tells how I want to escape this crazy life and live someone else's who never seem sad or so, ones who's in that happy balloons. And that's me on the ground, wishing I could be up there enjoying the fantastic view (well it's not literally me, I'm not that pretty :s). But what can I say, this is my life and i'm grateful for it.

"HOW THE FUCK DID HE DO THIS?," was the first thing that pops into my head when i saw his art works for the first time. "HOW THE FUH...," was the second line. "....." was the third. Okay i'm exaggerating. You may don't like this kind of artwork but to see this artwork and realize on how complex the process are made me think on how many hours did he spend doing just one picture? He must be a really patient person. If i were him, after 5 hours i would be like "BLAH.. forget it!". Fact, Tony Ariawan didn't attend any graphic-design school and started as an autodidact. Surprised? Me too. 

A friend of mine told me about how he has a digital-imaging artist friend and shares me a link to his artwork. TimeOut Jakarta's art editor, Vita, is looking for digital-imaging artists on deviantArt by chance at the moment to feature them on the magazine for next month's issue, so i showed his gallery to her. "Wow," she said. Just like i thought. Sadly, the article were already done. NO! I can't leak who's featured! No! Don't force me to do so! NO! I'll tell you when the magazine is already out on sale okay.

Tony Ariawan is now working as a freelance graphic designer, so if by chance you are looking for one, he's your man. BUT, he might be expensive since he serves clients from around the world.

Count Down to 13

I feel like i want to go back to when i was 13, when i don't have to worry about making money and just simply ask my mom or dad for it, when sex in not important and holding hands and a little kiss on the cheek was more than enough, when i didn't care which friends or foe and just blend, when school is a place to have some fun and not a place to kill myself with the tense like college, when the world is less stressful and seemed so beautiful from the eyes of a kid who didn't know what life is really.

Time changes everything.. Hmm.. No. Time doesn't change everything, people does.
