The Sunday Stealing

1. Lots of pillows or just one? Describe your pre-sleeping rituals.

The Cure

“Monday you can fall apart, Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart. Oh, Thursday doesn't even start, It's Friday I'm in love”
Do you have a certain day of the week for particular meal, such as pizza night or a family night, such as Game night?
I don't think we have such a thing. But, we always spend the weekends (Saturday and Sunday) together as a family. Hubby and I will take our daughter to visit places she loves such as playground or have dinner in our favorite restaurants.

“We should have each other to tea huh? We should have each other with cream, Then curl up by the fire And sleep for awhile”
What is your favorite brand of tea (or iced tea)?
Tazo Tea will be my favorite. You can find it in every Starbucks store. I love it for it's various taste/scent. My favorite one will be Chai. Hmm...

“Another girl, Another name, Stay alive but stay the same. It's just the same, A stupid game”
Have you ever joined a dating service or used personal ads to find a date?
Nope. I don't think people will ever take this service seriously. I mean, if you need to build a relationship with someone, why don't you join other social network or activities in "real world" instead of "virtual world". People can camouflage themselves in virtual world in order to look good and I call that as cheating. Meet the real people, meet more people, make new friends. That's all you need.

“However big I ever feel, It's never enough. Whatever I do to make it real, It's never enough. In any way I try to speak. Never enough”
What is the last project you worked hard on, only to get knocked down with friends /family insults about it?
Nothing as far as I can remember.

"Show me how you do that trick, The one that makes me scream" she said. "The one that makes me laugh" she said. And threw her arms around my neck . "Show me how you do it And I promise you I promise that I'll run away with you "
What’s your best trick?
What kind of trick do you mean? If you're talking about magician stuff, then I'm not the right person to answer LoL. I don't know any trick.

“Yesterday I got so old I felt like I could die. Yesterday I got so old It made me want to cry…”
When was the last time you felt old or were told by someone else that you were too old to do something?
No one has ever told me that I'm too old to do something since I'm only 29! But some of my high school friends told me that I look different now. Well, of course I look different. My body is not as delicious as I used to be LoL. I'm getting older every year, and that's so natural. I will accept that condition with a smile :)

“Everything you do is irresistible. Everything you do is simply kissable Why can't I be you?”
What would you say to your favorite celebrity if you met them in person?
"Hi. You look good and I love your song" I said to Bon Jovi.

“I lift my eyes from watching you to watch the star rise shine onto your dreaming face and dreaming smile you're dreaming worlds for me “
What is the nicest thing about sleeping with someone else, or sleeping alone?
Of course I will prefer to sleep with my hubby better than sleep alone. It feels nice to have somebody in your side and accompany you in your sleep. I miss him so much now...

“The innocence of sleeping children Dressed in white And slowly dreaming Stops all time Slow my steps and start to blur. So many years have filled my heart I never thought I'd say those words”
What do children do that amuses you most?
Laughing. I can see angelic bright on their faces every time they laugh..

“Under the strip light, And I'm sitting. In the kitchen sink, And the tap drips , Drip drip drip drip drip drip drip drip”
What was the last appliance or household item you fixed?
None. I'm not good at fixing anything LoL. I always asked someone else to help me with it.

“I would say I'm sorry If I thought that it would change your mind. But I know that this time I've said too much Been too unkind “
What was the last thing you said to someone that you wish you could take back?
Yup, I have something in mind about this. But I'd rather to keep it for myself. Sorry

“You flicker And you're beautiful You glow inside my head. You hold me hynotized I'm mesmerized Your flames The flames that kiss me dead “
What is your favorite insect?
I HATE INSECTS!! But I hate Cockroaches the most! Yaikkkss....

“Sometimes i'm dreaming Expressionless the trance. Sometimes i'm dreaming So many different names Sometimes i'm dreaming The sounds all stay the same “
What era in history would you like to visit for one day?
Victorian. I want to see those big and marvelous gowns directly. And how women arrange their hairs so high complete with the Victorian style's accessories.Hmmm....

My Health And Beauty Stuff

This week topic for Girls Topic is about shopping, girls especially about Health and Beauty. Well, I usually shop for our grocery monthly. I will spend at least two hours visiting section every section with a long list in my mind. I hate to go back over and over again just because I missed one thing. So, I will buy everything including some of my Health stuff and Beauty shop at that time.
One thing for sure, I will stop by in health section to buy some daily vitamins for me. I consume vitamin C regularly to maintain my healthiness. I also buy non fat milk for me and hubby.
In the beauty section, I usually buy my facial wash along with the face scrub. I’ve been changing my facial wash and scrub couple of times until I find one which obviously the best for me. At first I choose Olay before replacing it with L’oreal until now. This is also the time for me to buy my hand and body lotion. As I mention before, I always love Vaseline. I will buy the biggest bottle every month LoL. Then for soap, I pregfer Dove. And that’s all.
For my other cosmetics such as powder, foundation and lipstick, I seldom buy them during grocery shopping. I will take special time to visit the official stores of brands I like. For skin care products I prefer Clinique and for cosmetics such as powder, lipstick, etc I usually go to Ultima II or Lancome stores.
And that’s my story, girls.. What about you?

On A Burning Fire

1. You are stranded on a desert island. There is only one match left in the matchbox. What would you use it for?
To light the fire obviously. Well, what else you can use it for anyway? Give me a volley ball then I will make a "William doll" person for me. LoL

2. Do you burn bridges in relationships?
I think I do. I tend to end relationship completely with my ex-s. I want them to disappear for good. Well, that's me

3. Name one thing you'd like to set on fire today.
How about houses of those greedy corrupt-ors in my country? Those thieves have stolen so many for their own benefits and left nothing for those in need. I wonder whether they will survive or not if they have to live like poor people after they lost everything on fire.

4. Have you ever burned a cupcake?
No? Have you? What will it taste like then?

5. If you had your choice and could change nature's ways, instead of smoke and lava, what should spew out of volcanoes?
Something to make the soil more fertile for plants and clear the air at the same time. That's what we need to live comfortably in this earth and defeat the global warming issue.

6. When is the last time you used a Fire Extinguisher?
Never used one of it until now. I'm lucky enough to be spared of stuff like that. Thank God.

7. Have you ever known anyone with a fiery uncontrollable temper? How did you handle it?
I know I can't handle it at all since I can also lost my temper at the same time. So, it's better for me to stay away and keep my distance from that kind of people. There are so many nice people out there to talk to.

8. You are with your significant other. What song are you singing around the campfire?
Definitely our anthem LoL. "Till Death Do Us Part" from White Lion

9. What is the one thing you'd gladly leave IN your house in case of fire.

Years ago, when I was still work in my office before getting married. I want to forget it.

11. Do you believe in hell?
I believe that hell is there every time we feel devastating. Hell is also exist every time we lost someone we love. Hell is exist when human must struggle so badly in order to survive. I believe that situations are similar to hell.

12. Do you or have you ever smoked? 
Nope. I don't smoke and I will never smoke :) It's bad for me and people around me

Jugun Ianfu-Beauty Leads to Disaster

Have you ever heard about the term “Jugun Ianfu” before? I think most of you who live in Asia will at least ever heard about this once. Jugun Ianfu (JI) has a similar meaning with prostitutes. But the most general term for this is Comfort Women. The difference is that prostitutes get paid for their “services” while JI works involuntarily. In fact, they were forced to leave their houses (most of them were kidnapped) to become prostitutes for Japanese troops in Asia during war 1942-1945 for FREE! Bottom line is these women were forced to be Japanese troops’ sex slaves.
The victims of Jugun Ianfu come from many countries in Asia, such as Indonesia, Philippine, Taiwan, and Korea. Maybe there’s a different about the term/name used for these women in several countries, but actually they have similar meaning. There’s no specific numbers which able to describe the exact numbers of JI, but some researches found 20.000-30.000 victims and some others found 50.000-200.000 victims. It’s difficult to get the exact number because most of these women choose to keep silent and stop talking about their extremely embarrassing experiences in their young ages. Ex-Jugun Ianfu grows old in shameful way and must bear with mockery and insulting from people around them for what they’ve faced through. They were stamped to be Japanese troops’ prostitutes even when the reality ensures that they were actually victims of foreign military rape. That’s why they choose to be silent and conceal their past experiences; it’s to avoid mockery and judgments from other people. There’s no way Japan can pay for what these women had in their young ages nowadays.
But there’s a movement from Jugun Ianfu victims in many countries who decide to break the silence and seek justice for women victims of foreign military rapes. On 1995, Japan Authority made a fund institution called Asian Women’s Fund to help these women. But we both know that no money in this world could make all victims of troops’ sex slaves forget about their dark experiences. They condemn the beauty of their young faces and bodies since it only lead them to disaster like hell! Sometimes beauty won’t give you nothing but dark ages.

Watching The Wheels Go Round

1. What do you see when you are watching the wheels go round?
I feel boring. I will try to find another thing to look instead.

2. Do you watch reality shows? Which ones?
I'm not a fan of reality show actually. But I wonder if the "Next Top Model" shows are reality show. If so, then yes, I watch it regularly--everyday-- LoL And they're the only reality show I watch.

3. What's your favorite all time reality show?
See number #2

4. Do you feel "reality" shows are real or are they faked?
Though they may look real, I think script writers and creative directors will take part of this show. That's why the viewers can find these shows attractive. There's a bit of drama in everything.

5. What does your personal neon sign say to the world?
Happy mommy is in the house!

6. Ever seen a neon sign with certain letters burned out so that it said something unintended?
I think I saw that kind of neon sign somewhere before but it was a long time a go and most of them are in Indonesian. You will enjoy this picture below instead LoL

7. What gives you a headache? Could be a scent, a sound, someone's actions - anything.
A terrible scent could give me a headache but terrible sound could give me the worst one. I like quietness where everybody talks in a proper tone and volume.

8. What song, artist or album in your music collection would you pull out and play if you wanted to give your roommate/neighbors a huge, head-splitting headache?
Aha! I think every rap songs will be juussssttt perfect for this occasion! LoL

9. What do you do to relieve stress?
Sometimes I feel sleeping will reduce the stress but then I think spend some times in an open space and enjoy natural scenery will be the perfect choice.

Billy Joel

Today we picked Billy Joel. The song's lyrics are in bold.

1. PIANO MAN… “Sing us a song, you're the piano man, Sing us a song tonight. Well, we're all in the mood for a melody, And you've got us feelin' alright”
What is your favorite Karaoke song to sing with?
I definitely love country music to sing in karaoke. I love country.

2. CAPTAIN JACK…”Saturday night and you're still hangin' around, Tired of livin' in your one-horse town. Like to find a little hole in the ground, For a while”
If you grew up in a one-horse town, are you still there, or did you try living somewhere else?
I don't get it. What is a one horse town meaning anyway?

3. NEW YORK STATE OF MIND…”It comes down to reality-and it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide, Don't care if it's Chinatown or Riverside, I don't have any reasons, I've left them all behind- I'm in a New York state of mind.”
What is your favorite New York food?
LoL this is totally out of my experience. Never been to this city before.

4. SHE’S ALWAYS A WOMAN TO ME…”But she'll bring out the best And the worst you can be, Blame it all on yourself, Cause she's always a woman to me”
Has someone else ever brought out the best or worse in you?
My hubby will be the perfect one for this. He completes me :)

5. MOVIN OUT…”Workin' too hard can give you a heart attack ack ack ack ack ack, You oughta know by now. Who needs a house out in Hackensack? Is that what you get for your money?”
What is the most annoying line from a song lyric of all time?
I hate most rap songs lyrics. Somehow I can only find mockery, insulting words and stuff like that.

6. ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG…”They say there's a heaven for those who will wait. Some say it's better but I say it ain't. I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints …Sinners are much more fun...”
What would heaven be like for you? A shopping mall? A forest? Mansion? Do tell…
"Sinners are much more fun?" I'm not with you with this, Billy. We definitely have a different version of heaven here. So, I don't think you will ever understand my version of heaven, just like I will never understand yours!

7. JUST THE WAY YOU ARE…”Don't go trying some new fashion, Don't change the color of your hair. You always have my unspoken passion, Although I might not seem to care…”
Have you ever changed something about yourself to please somebody else?
Sometimes I change my hair color, but I did it to please myself LoL

8. STILL ROCK N ROLL TO ME…”Should I try to be a straight `A' student?
If you are then you think too much. Don't you know about the new fashion honey? All you need are looks and a whole lotta money. It's the next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways , it's still rock and roll to me…”
What besides “looks and a whole lotta money” would you require in a mate?
Love and Respect

9. YOU MAY BE RIGHT…”You may be right, I may be crazy. But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for…”
Do you like bad boys (girls) or good boys (girls)?
No. I don't like bad boys or good boys. Everyone has good and bad inside them. Just be yourself.

10. WE DIDN’T START THE FIRE… “Wheel of Fortune, Sally Ride, heavy metal, suicide, Foreign debts, homeless vets, AIDS, crack, Bernie Goetz, Hypodermics on the shores, China's under martial law, Rock and roller cola wars, I can't take it anymore”
List 13 things for a Billy Joel verse in this aggravating song…
Will come back with this one later :D

11. TELL HER ABOUT IT…”Tell her about it. Tell her all your crazy dreams. Let her know you need her, Let her know how much she means…”
Have you told your significant other or dearest family member recently how much
they mean to you?
Everyday. It's something that I always do

12. UPTOWN GIRL… “I’m in love with an uptown girl, She's been living in her white bread world. As long as anyone with hot blood can, And now she's looking for a downtown man. That's what I am…”
Have you dated someone above or below your “level”? (richer or poorer). Did you feel comfortable with them?
I think most of the richer will never look at the poorer for relationship. It's nature. That's why I've never wished to have a richer significant other, since he will try to find the one who (at least) with the same "wealth"

13. THE LONGEST TIME… “Who knows how much further we'll go on. Maybe I'll be sorry when you're gone. I'll take my chances, I forgot how nice romance is, I haven't been there for the longest time”
What is the longest you have gone without a love relationship?
I don't have a relationship during my college. I had a boyfriend when I was in high school then right after I finished from university.

Dolly Parton

1. "I hated school. Even to this day, when I see a school bus it's just depressing to me. The poor little kids."
What was your worst year in school? Why?
Funny. I can't remember my worst year in school now. I have one for sure, I just can't remember. Guess I'm getting older now. LoL

2. "I still close my eyes and go home - I can always draw from that."
Tell us about YOUR home.
My home is where my family are. Been moving to several different towns these past two years and I consider those places as home. But my favorite one is still Medan.

3. "I'm not going to limit myself just because people won't accept the fact that I can do something else."
What have you been told that you couldn’t do, but proved them wrong?
Some pathetic people speculated that I won't be able to enter university due to my parents' financial issue. But God show us all His Grace and Mercy. I manage to finish my university finally.

4. "I'm old enough and cranky enough now that if someone tried to tell me what to do, I'd tell them where to put it."
What was the last incident where you were told what to do and were insulted?
I'm sure you know kind of people who consider themselves as superior just because they're older and they always tell you what to do. I have some of them in my family. These people are such a pain in the ass!

5. "If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one."
Have you ever reinvented yourself? How?
This is a serious question for me and I won't able to answer it in just few words now. Sure, I have.

6. "If you talk bad about country music, it's like saying bad things about my momma. Thems fightin' words."
Is there a type of music that you hate?
Well, I won't precisely name it, but I hate any music where the singers shout like crazy people and yelling words like mocking people. What kind of music is that?

7. "It's a good thing I was born a girl, otherwise I'd be a drag queen."
Have you ever crossed dressed for Halloween or just for the hell of it?
We don't celebrate Halloween here

8. "My weaknesses have always been food and men - in that order."
What are your weaknesses?
Food-shoe-bag - in that order LoL. Thank God I'm not a fan of jewelry.

9. "The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain."
Tell us about something that you did that required patience, but was worth it.
I love a designer purse I saw on a retail shop. As usual, designer stuff means money. I save my money for about six months before I finally bought it. And it's really worth to wait.

10. "We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails."
When was the last time you made a major change in your life
Marriage is the major change in my life. It's the most important decision I've ever made in my whole life.
