Last week, I made Kimbab for my lunch box's trip to Yogyakarta with my friends. it's my second time making this. I was in my holiday (actually everyday seemed like holiday for me though), and my friends that had been lived in other cities were coming home, so we made a plan for a little trip. And there I was, making a Kimbab in my kitchen. :)

Kimbab is a Korean food that use kim (김, seaweed) and bab (밥, rice) for its ingredients. It's like sushi-roll in Japan. It's a very simple food to make. Here's the recipe -modified by me-

Tools:
- Kimbal (a tools for rolling the rice, made from bamboo)
tip:
If you don't have kimbal, no need to buy it, just use a transparent plastic. It works the same. I used it. :p
- Cooking brush

DISGUISE
by Lene Marlin

Have you ever felt some kind of emptiness inside
You will never measure up, to those people you
Must be strong, can't show them that you're weak
Have you ever told someone 
Something that's far from the truth
Let them know that you're okay
Just to make them stop
All the wondering, and questions they may have

I'm okay, I really am now
Just needed some time, to figure things out
Not telling lies, I'll be honest with you
Still we don't know what's yet to come

Have you ever seen your face,
In a mirror there's a smile
But inside you're just a mess,
You feel far from good
Need to hide, 
'cos they'd never understand
Have you ever had this wish, 
Of being somewhere else
To let go of your disguise, all your worries too
And from that moment, then you see things clear

Are you waiting for that day when your pain will disappear?
When you know that it's not true what they say about you?
Couldn't care less 'bout the things surrounding you
Ignoring all the voices from my wall

I knew this song when I was in junior high school. It's the ending theme song for a Taiwan drama called Senorita or here, people knew it as Twins. When I finally knew the lyrics, I love it even more, one of my favorite songs. And last night, this song just came across my mind. Hope you enjoy it. :)

Adios! ^^

let it remain Untitled

God... I know you've always been good to me. Thank you for giving me such a wonderful life with wonderful people inside it. I'm happy for my life of course, nothing happier than this life you gave, although sometimes you teach me in the hard way. I just don't know how to say it to you, but that one person you sent to be existed in my life, why I still hold my curse to it? Is there any reason? I knew, there always be. Yeah, I'm fully aware of that. That I'm going to find the answer later.
God... I know that goodness is the things you love. I'm trying to be one, I'm trying to be good, ignoring what I'm struggling with inside. I'm gonna wear that mask. Just please help me to put it much much longer till I can free from everything bad inside. Please keep me smile, so that everyone that see me, will smile eventually. Will you?

It's a psychological test I've got from "Seminar Vacancy : Get Excited, Guide Your Carrer" by CDC IT Telkom last monday, December 12th, 2011. There were three speakers: Mr. Oscar Marino from ePROTEA FINEXUS Malaysia; Mr. Wirawan Winarto from Microsoft Indonesia which also one of IT Telkom's alumnus; and Ms. Sukmayanti Ranadireksa, M. Psi, a psychologist.

Mr. Oscar presented on how our job won't be depend only in our past education. He himself, was a civil engineer student in college, but now he's responsible in IT department in Finexus. How that can be happen? or how that can be related, civil engineer and IT? None. He's in civil engineer major indeed, but he found his passion in IT. And now, he works in the name of IT, not civil engineer.

I have a post on my previous blog -or should I call it my "galau" blog? hehe- with the same title. But the difference is, that post was dedicated to Chuck Bass, a cast on Gossip Girl series. And this one, is dedicated to Barney Stinson, a cast on How I Met Your Mother series. In case you don't know about those characters or series, well, they're all jerks, playboy that didn't believe in the existence of love and relationship. Maybe some pictures will help you picture them clearly.

Ed Westwick a.k.a Chuck Bass
Neil Patrick Harris a.k.a Barney Stinson 

Out of topic question: "Who's hotter?" hahaha...of course ignore the fact that Neil is a gay. Well for me, of course Ed is hotter!! He's young and has this evil-cold face, another "Ian Somerhalder". gyaaaaa.... >.<
