Her Big Day

Got information from Ivan that his third sister will get married on March 5, 2011. Woooww!! We only have a month to prepare everything. Ok, first thing first is book flight to Dumai. We have to book it earlier, so that we can get cheaper price. hehe..
Book flight, done! Now, it's time to think about wedding dress. Ivan's sister named Amel,  wants to wear Indonesian national dress called Kebaya. Last Saturday, we (me and all of Ivan's sisters) went to Pasar Baru. We bought fabric to be sewn into kebaya. She chose cream for her kebaya. And for me...i got shocking pink! Oh Gosh, it's so eye cathy! i will wear the same color with two of his other sisters.

my kebaya will be like that.
Well, only for color but different model
i'll give you the pic when it's done =)

For the dress..done? Nope! I have to wait until February 27 to see it for the first time and fitting. I hope my kebaya will be just  like what i want. I spent a lot of money for it! -___-" 

Hmm, what's next? I think that's all for now. I'm very happy knowing that Ivan's sister will get married. Congratulation to you sis! =)

Happy Monday all!!

My Little Dream

Since i was a little girl, i love to dance, especially Indonesian traditional dance. As we know that Indonesia has so many traditional dance, one of my favorite is Bali dance. The question is..can i do the Bali dance? Nope! haha..

Once, i practiced Bali dance, but it's sooooo difficult! At the first practiced, i feel pain on all of my body, especially on my my waist and thighs. *sigh.. Ok, that's all, i quit! oops, just kidding. hehe =P but it's true, i didn't continue practice Bali dance again. Because the place to practice is sooooo far from my house. -____-"

Well, i decided to find another place nearer to my house. But i haven't found it yet..eeerrrrr..actually didn't look for it. hehe.. Yeah, that's me, i'm a very moody person. Once i really want to practice Bali dance, but then i'll forget it. =P

Now, i'll tell you about Bali dance. One of the easiest for beginner is Pendet dance. I also practiced it at first. For Balinese dancer, Pendet maybe very easy, but for me...it's very difficult. I'll give you some information about Pendet dance below

Indonesia is a cultural paradise, this is proven by the thousands are dancing on this island country. more then one the traditional dances are in various areas Indonesia, one of the famous dance is Pendet from the Bali island. Pendet initially a worship dance that was exhibited in Pure(Hindu temple in Bali, Indonesia). This dance symbolizes the welcoming of the gods fall into the natural world. Along with the times, the Balinese artists change Pendet be “a welcome to the tourist who visit Bali”, but still contains elements of the sacred-religious.

“Pendet” means  a statement of  Bali peoples in the form of ceremonial dances. This dance is feminine, because it’s so requires the movements graceful and dynamic. There are some embedded philosophy to the younger generation (especially the women), young girls follow the movements of the older woman with the intention of the older women are responsible for providing a good example to the younger generation. Later, Pendet dance is claimed by malaysia, dance Pendet already hundreds of years old, is a native dance from Indonesia. Ni Ketut Reneng and I Wayan Rindi in 1950  modify the Pendet as welcoming guests with a special name Pendet Astuti Puja. These modifications consisted dance four dancers as part of the show turistik in Bali Hotel, in 1961 the dance was modified by I Wayan Beratha with five dancers. and in 1962 with 800 Pendet dancers exhibited at the opening of the Asian Games in Jakarta.

The Bali  dances are performed for the purposes of religious ceremony called the Wali dance, while for performances outside Pure called Balih-balihan.

Maybe one day i'll make my dream come true. Besides being a professional secretary, i wanna be a professional dancer too. Is it possible? Well, nothing is impossible, right? =D

Yesterday, i chit-chat with one of my best friend. Her name is Mayrina. We're friends since we were in primary school. In high school, we met again in the same school. Then we went to the same university, majoring in Secretary. That's why we became a very close friend. =) 

Ok, now back to chit-chat.. i really miss her so much. Long time no see and hang out with her. And i was very surprised when she said that right now she's in Russia. Wooooww!! What are you doing there May?? She's working as a small ambassadors to promote Indonesia. It's AWESOME!! Oh, i forgot to tell you this, after we graduated from Tarakanita Secretarial Academy, she continued her study majoring in International Relations....or something like that, i don't know for sure. hehe... And now, she already finished her study and working at Russia. How lucky she is and i'm so proud of her!

End of March she'll come back to Indonesia. I can't wait to see her and listening to her story about her job. Hmm, i'll arrange a schedule to hang out with her and Merda (one of my best friends too ^^) in the middle of April. So girls...please prepare your time! =)

New Year = Bad Luck

Aaaaarrrgghhh!!! Why this new year brings a lot of bad luck to me!! One of my bad luck is...i got CHICKENPOX! So, yesterday is my first day back to office in the new year. In the morning, after i took a bath, i saw some small red spots on my body. I thought it just red spots, and nothing wrong with that.

When i arrived at office, i saw new red spot on my hand. I asked my friend what kind of red spot is that. She said that it's chickenpox. Are you kidding me? But how? She suggested me to go to the doctor in our office. So, i went to meet doctor. I told him that i have some small red spots on my body. He checked it, and he said.... "Yes, it's chickenpox". 

In the evening, i decided to go to another doctor just to make sure it's chickenpox or not. The second doctor also said that it's chickenpox. I don't know when, where and how it's happen to me. Well ok, i got chickenpox and i can't avoid it. Now i have to take a rest for 3 days. On Thursday, i'll go to doctor again just to check my chickenpox.

Oh, for this post, i won't take my picture with chickenpox. =P I just hope and pray that i can get well soon, and can go to office again soon. huft...
