Waking Up On The Wrong Side Of The Bed

Ever go through that moment where from the moment you wake up, you have that dreaded feeling that either everything is going wrong or eventually will screw up your entire day? That’s today for me.
Waking up heavy-headed after a weekend of late nights and irregular sleeping, the sometimes too-short-for-a-vacation weekend jolted me so that it felt that it had been a long time since I woke up early and went to the office. Perhaps it’s my car problems; apparently the battery went dead (again) and I might have to buy a new one (again), all because of my carelessness. Maintaining an antique car has its prices, apparently. But somehow, it’s just not that…
On the bus ride, things looked gloomy and my body didn’t feel like 100% percent. I felt tired, did not enjoy eating breakfast too much, and felt like there’s a 100 ton load in my chest ready to burst. Calling Saski didn’t help because the connection was bad and only made me more anxious (thanks for trying, dear).
Last resort would be going down to get a bar of chocolate, but I don’t think my body has the will to move great distances.

So, anybody got a surefire recipe to cheer oneself up? I’m open to suggestions.

Krayola on the Prambors Nubuzz Chart!

It may not seem like something significant, but for our first single to be played on the radio and getting some recognition on one of the charts, it’s something for us!
Keep your eye on this link, and cross your fingers with us to see how far the song goes! Of course, request the song frequently to Prambors 😀

Happy Birthday, Sas!
Hope today is the first special birthday for many to come, dear 🙂

What I Really Want

Testing Something While I Type This…

Finally, since I have been able to clear up some of my work and hand it over to more capable people, my workload has diminished (only juuuust a bit) for me to focus on what I’m supposed to do: create new business and make it profitable. Wish me luck ya…

I would also like to extend my sympathy to the victims of the sinking of the KM Senopati off the coast of Java, and the lost Adam Air flight, accidents involving a lot of lives and only happening within 2 days of each other…
Something is inherently wrong, because as most Indonesians here think, obviously the accidents still had strong roots from rampant corruption and ignorance occuring on various levels of society. Nobody cares about others anymore, let alone the well-being of the country. The people that we should look to to lead or give example consistenly disappoint us; but nothing we do ourselves try to fix the problem. Nobody wants to start.

I will start. This I promise. I will care more for my people and my country. As long as I can get my full of meals, have a nice place to stay, get a steady supply of CDs, drive my car around everywhere…. ah, forget it. I’m just like the rest.

The least we can do, for now, is ask: what can we do differently?

Back To The Real World, And The Endless Stream Of Paperwork

After living almost the past 2 weeks in dreamland, and not really touching on work issues, today is my last day in blissfull holidaze, and tomorrow I must return and pay my dues to the real world to make sure I have a paycheck waiting for me later this month.
The family trip to Pulau Umang, although not entirely memorable, was much cherished because of the company than the place itself. I’d recommend the place to people, but I’d also recommend they spruce up a little bit, heheh. I got to do a lot of reading (and sleeping; a staple activity on holiday), and even got to swim in the sea (and actually see the sand you’re walking on while wading). The rest of the holiday was almost spend driving around, considering the combined schedule of me and Ari, and the distance between Serpong and Jakarta.

I’m a bit dreading at the issues I have to handle tomorrow (I have no idea what, but I’m sure it involves a lot of paperwork), but I want to come in early and start detailing the plans for 2007. Anyway, bad or good, a fresh start (and a fresh attitude) is always important, and part of me actually can’t wait to get back to work and clear all the ruckus currently hovering in the industry.

Happy new year, everybody! Don’t know if it will be a great year or not, but I’ll sure as damndest do my best to make it so…
