happy anniversary, bloggie :)

My twin celebrating her birthday today. It's you, bloggie x)
I didn't count how many posts i've written here, how many times i've changed it's background. How many comments i've received, how many happiness and sadness i've shared you. Thank you. You made me realize that i can share my thought, feeling, and experience. It's good to me, as my foot note in life. Yeah, you, you are one of the fact that me, Gressiana Siahaan was truly exist in this world. A human, who'd had many stories in life, many dreams and many experiences. I'd shared it to all of you, as my blog reader. And if no one read mine, i'll still write, i'll still here to be your twin x)

huting dah jadi teen

Hehehe, adek bungsu saya ulang tahun hari ini, dah jadi teen deh dia, dah umur 13 tahun aka thirteen! Dah kelas 2 SMP, ntar lagi SMA, trus kuliah deh. Ntar tumbuh kumis2an, yang sedikit menjijikkan (baca: menurut saya), trus kaki dia tambah gede, secara sekarang aja dah 40, hey, mau sebesar apa kakimu di usia 23 tahun, hah? hahahaha.. Trus, dia dah pacaran ntar, waduh, saya dilangkahi dong ntar kalo dia dah mulai2 mau pacaran x)

Dia tuh dandy loh, gaya2 gitu, lebih memperhatikan penampilan. Dia suka selera saya, biasanya nanya gaya ke saya, terutama kalo saya ada di rumah. Malu kalo dimanjain di depan umum, huhhhh, ga keren ah kalo dibagian itu. Mungkin karena dia bungsu, dia mau keliatan sedikit "abang" jangan keliatan banget dia itu "adek" ya? Mmm, wajar2, lagian saya juga berusaha mengurangi keinginan saya untuk nyuap2 makanan ke mulut dia, waduh, secara kita bedanya cukup jauh (7tahun), bobo bareng trus sampe sekarang, gimana saya ga sayang banget sama dia?

Mau bikin dia happy gampang. Seperti cowo pada umumnya, buat dia senang lewat perut alias makanan kesukaannya. Jadi deh, tiap masakan saya dia itu penyicip setia, papamama masih sedikit under estimate, tapi kedua jagoan saya melahap habis semuanya. Gimana ga senang punya si buncit satu ini? hehehehe.. Trus, kalo kita nge-date berdua tripnya dah kebaca tuh, makan di Ta Wan atau Solaria (favoritnya Chicken Cordon Blue yang menurut saya amaaaatttt gede), nonton film yang sudah disepakati bersama (minim adegan dewasa, yang disimpulkan film2 superhero gitu lah ya), trus ngupi ke J.Co. Kita berdua ga ngupi, tapi ya itu, mesan minum Ice Chocolate berdua, trus makan Glazzy deh. Itu kencan romantis loh hehehe.. Kadang kita bertiga, enak ya? Meskipun tak jarang abis sampe rumah perang lagi! hahahaha..

Banyak lah yang bisa diceritain tentang huting saya yang satu ini. Huting itu nama panggilan saya ke dia. Semua orang, khususnya orang Batak, pasti nanya kenapa saya panggil dia Huting. Arti Huting sendiri itu sebenarnya kucing loh. Dulu karena dia suka ngekor2 kemana mama pergi, jadi kayak kucing yang suka ngendus2 tuannya datri belakang kan? Jadi deh, saya manggil dia Huting sampe sekarang. Nah, bukti dia ngekor saya, banyakan sih saya suka diekorin hehe, ini dia benda yang saya pilih buat ultah dia. Dia suka dan janji bakalan pakai mulai hari ini. So, happy birthday, Huting :) i miss you..

kado Huting

punya Huting dan punya saya :)

the last Earth Hour

I forgot the exact date of Earth Hour. The thing happened on that day was we had to switch off our lamps, or any electrical thingy to save earth. Well, me myself didn't do it. I just lived in 3x3metres room, without an emergency lamp, so if i switched off my lamps (there's just 2 lamps in my room, the other one is in my bathroom), i saw nothing and breathless. Besides, i didn't use many electrical thingy in room. Just AC, tv, laptop, water dispenser and 2 lamps. Not that much, right? So, i switched nothing off but tv (i am not a tv fan) on that hour. But i believe even if i didn't switch off the lamps, all over the world had done their job. Like this.

ps : i am amaze and promise in the next Earth Hour, i'll switch off my err.. AC, tv and lamps (i'd already had an emergence lamp now)

have an ACE day

This huge store will never make me bore. Guess what, it's cool to find it out on Puri Indah Mall, and it also connected with INDEX Furniture. It doubled my willing to go there again, hopefully on this year. Yeah, hopefully this year, because i'll have hard days after mid exams, gonna do some observations and method research that will be ended with final session (read : SIDANG - i'll have my first sidang this year!). Besides, i have to go with car or taxi, so i can put many things i (will) buy safely. Well, yesterday, i decided to go with public angkot, because it's my first time to go there, because it's better for me to know the exact location of this mall, so i won't get lost if i go with taxi. Err... the other important part is, i also need my daddy to help me to pay all things i wish for in ACE hahaha.. Just like yesterday, i just bought some room decor, to put on my wall. I haven't put it yet, due to many tasks to do today, maybe i'll put its pictures after i put them.

I told Loloy, who'd accompany me, that i don't mind if my future husband (say Amen!) won't give me any "mas kawin" BUT he have to let me choose anything i want in ACE hahaha.. I wish i could full my future home (say Amen again!) with its stuffs. This shop is really watering my mouth, and it even doubled my saliva (it used in dog's in my text book, so please read it : liur - in Indonesian) because they also had Index in the upper floor. My God, i have to bring mama to this mall. Highly recommended, especially for me, who'd always go to the big malls in Jakarta. This mall isn't that big, it's just have 3 floor (just 3, i won't be wrong with the floor number). Guys, you can count (because i can't) malls in Jakarta which only have 3 floors, but it's completely full! I could name some stuffs you could find there : XXI plus premiere and 6 studios, Celebrity Fitness (i'm not sure the name, or is it Gold's Gym?), their food court, and Puri Land (children's area, they even had roller coaster) and a Carrefour outside. I heart this mall :)

Another things that made me happy from ACE is : They've already sold Christmas thingyyyy!!!

I couldn't take the picture closer to the store, so shy to do it hehehe.. But, it's just some of the stuff, big ones especially, like the trees. Inside the store they also sell many cute stuffs. Suddenly i remember my Christmas tree in home. Mom always change our Christmas tree's theme every year, and also our dress code, in the other way to say, the color of our dress has to be the same color with the tree's theme color hahaha.. So, i have no idea what kinda stuff should i buy for mama, because she haven't told me the current theme for this Christmas. I felt so much bless when remembering Christmas time. It's family time, can't waitttt... Christmas, please don't be late, okei? x)

late post : last celebration

While waiting for my sister to upload photos of Sintong's birthday celebration last night, i searched my old photos also. I found these photos, taken on my birthday celebration last year. As i said that we could choose the place to eat out, i chose Sedona Restaurant to had these fancy lunch. Daddy was a bit shock to see the total price *giggles. But, overall it's good, to served any Western food in Manado. Here's what we ordered :

Sintong's and my main courses


the best part : the desserts :)

Can't wait for my next birthday celebration on the next two months *giggles over and over again while dreaming of a great birthday celebration.

my SOS's bday

Today is my oldest brother's birthday. In one post i wrote his name, it was an uncorrect name actually, because i mixed both of my brother's name. His real name is Sintong Oktavianus Siahaan. That's why i made it short with SOS. He also used it as his yahoo account, if i'm not mistaken. And today, he is seventeen! Time flew so fast, suddenly he's in his last year in high school and will enter college next year. He'll be on the same life stage with me, as a college student! My God! I gotta finish my college soon,or he'll catch me or leave me. Well, i guess it won't happen hahaha..

So, as our usual tradition in home, when one of us has birthday, we can choose to eat wherever we want. Me myself, haven't celebrate birthday with friends, just once, with my bestfriend and ex boyfriend. Overall, due to my birthday date is a strange date, i can't make any party, no one will come but families hehe.. My brothers too. It's not a tradition to celebrate birthday with friends, so today they just wanna had lunch and dinner out. Some of his close friends will join the families tonight. Mom called me after they got home after lunch and Sunday service, she don't want me to envy Sintong hehe.. Well, mom, i am not that childish, though i miss you all a lot! But, i know you'll remember me in every celebration in Manado:) I am okay here, and still have one more exam, and i even haven't touched it hahaha.. I hope i can manage my exam tomorrow before have some fun on the next day. Oh, God bless me.. Bless also my brothers and parents. I am about helping my brother to enter his dream college, i hope i can get any replies really sooner. I just can't wait until i get it hehe..

- i post it from my phone, i'll edit and post some pictures after my exam.. See yaa:)

hard exams, hard week

Hai everyone..
About a week ago, i gave this blog to my super girl, to have it retouched, but, unfortunately it still unfinish. She's about having mid term exams too, i guess (i lost contact with everyone this week). While me, i was about posting some posts this week, but, i didn't know how! She said she will fix it, display some bg for me to choose, so, let me here, wait till it finish :)

I just had a very hard week for me. No need to tell here, i'm just tired of being 5th semester student, huhuhu.. Still i have one more exam, next Monday. I hope i can finish them, so i can continue my interview and observation tasks. Ah ya, a 3-pages translation to be finished also. God, i am so tired..And it even worse because i got my period this week! It made me ate a lot now. I could named them (my friends during my period, but the picture will be uploaded later, guys). They are Kripik Pisang Lampung, Stik Keju Mamiku, Pocky Choco Banana, Twister and Yan Yan - hahahaha, i thought i gained weight now :p

Today, Jakarta had a 6,4 SR earthquake. I was in Ciputra Mall, alone, when it happened. I ran myself after the security told me it was earthquak-ing. I just didn't realize it, really. TV said, it only happened for 10 seconds. But, i lost my will to shop in the outside, so i walked in rush in to my kost. When i asked my friend, they just didn't feel the earthquake too, so, what more can i say? I watched TV and had my self relieved when i knew it hurted no one, thanks God! But, my parents wasn't know about it yet because they hadn't called me, though i had inform them. Yeah, maybe tomorrow they will call me. I am wishing actually. No more earthquake, pleaseeee..

It's getting late actually, but i still have to continue my homework, whuahhh.. I am crossing fingers now, for something great tomorrow hihihi.. Errr..., maybe it's better for me to sleep now, i am so tired. So, good night, bloggie :p

Davon :)

Call him Davon (from my Tulang)

But me and mom love to call him Raka (his name from my mom)

No matter what you call him, one thing for sure, he's too cute to be true! We heart you, Davon :)

Chopsticks and Coffee

the personils of Chopsticks and Coffee

Two things that i used as this post's tittle describe how i spent my previous week. I have almost a full week with my family and relatives from my mom's side. My cousin was married last Saturday and it made all of us gathered in Jakarta. So, mom was in town! Yippieee! But i couldn't be that happy because i have mid semester exams, started this Monday. Say it i abandon my exams, because in fact, i went travel with my family hahahaha.. Though it's still in Jakarta, but i was so happy and it means i found this two things : chopsticks and coffee.

Just like last Monday. After i finished my exam, i went to my uncle's home in Kebon Jeruk then we picked my sister up on Cempaka Putih to have lunch together anddd we chose Chinese Food because we all love Chinese Food Restaurant and their menus. Ta Wan was our numero uno in Chinese Restaurant, especially my family. If i go back to Manado, mm, at least once at 2 weeks we'll have dinner in Ta Wan. But on that day, i had Apollo Hainam Rice than having Ta Wan. Why we all love Chinese Food? It became a habit. Bakmie or even a simple nasi goreng tasted better than Indonesia Food in our tongues. Maybe the closest connection was there are many Chinese people in Medan (as our homeland) and they made great Chinese Food. So, we all loved Chinese food, no need to ask why, it's been our main course for a long time :p

After that, we went to Pacific Place and had coffee and a long chitchat. Yeah, another habit from my family was drink coffee. Starbucks was the one and only choice for us. And for me, will always be Green Tea Frappucino while others had their own coffee. Oya, i just found that PP had ak.'sa.ra bookstore, next to Starbucks. I was eye-d things and books there, but, i wasn't sure enough to buy them. Not because the prices, but their functions to me. So, i decided not to buy things there, but get into adult conversation and get bored suddenly. It's not a good topic, about marriage life, hadehhh.. How can i enjoy to talk about marriage while now i have a bit doubt on it since someone cheated on me this year. But, i have to listen to my mom and aunt carefully and wishing i can find someone "normally" really sooner in God's time, for He knows the best for me and all my relatives. Amen!

Then, we went to have Ta Wan afterward (finally!) before strolled Kelapa Gading at night. Almost mid night, they drove me home (mom slept over on my uncle's home before went to Lampung to visit Davon -see him in the next post- in the next day). And, i have no time to studyyy, but it's okay. God bless me so much in the next day because i could answer the exams, eventhough i slept a while yet study a while hahaha.. Now, i am waiting the next Chopsticks and Coffee combination with my family. Maybe i just can have them with my sister, i hope it will come before Christmas. I am wishing it so much :p

sorry bloggie

I am sorry bloggie, i destroyed you. I guess i can make you prettier than before. I am sorry because i've never touched you up. And even abandoned you sometimes, many times. Now, you back to a simple one. I wish i can make any good improvement on blogging stuff, but i failed. I knew nothing, huff.. But, i promised you i will make you better, maybe not me, personally, but i'll have someone to to make it to you. I am sorry. I lose my writing spirit suddenly, and i still have many exams in the further days. But, i'll post something if i can, i promised. I am sorry, bloggie :(

Anggaplah dia bus.
Bukan sekedar bus.
Bus ini hanya datang sekali seumur hidup.
Semua orang ingin menaikinya.
Tapi harganya mahal.

Anggaplah dia bus.
Bukan sekedar bus.
Dia belum akan datang sekarang.
Seperti aku pun yang belum siap bertemunya.
Aku belum bisa membayarnya.

Anggaplah dia bus.
Bukan sekedar bus.
Dia menawarkan keindahan di dalamnya.
Tapi bukan perjalanan yang akan terus mulus.
Dia hanya berjanji, tidak akan menurunkanku di tengah jalan.
Terlunta-lunta, seorang diri.

Anggaplah dia bus.
Bukan sekedar bus.
Aku tahu berapa harga untuk menaikinya.
Dan perlu waktu bagiku untuk mempersiapkannya.
Aku pun tahu, dia sedang mempersiapkannya juga.

Anggaplah dia bus.
Bukan sekedar bus.
Dia hanya membuka 2 kali seumur hidupku.
Hanya untukku dan dia.
Penghuni sejati bus itu.
Kami akan duduk bersama disitu.
Karena itu bus kami.

Kami tidak ingin berada di bus itu
dalam keadaan hampir jatuh.
Kami tidak ingin berada di bus itu
berpegang pada besi di pintu.
Berusaha agar tidak jatuh seumur hidup kami.
Kami tidak akan menyadari bahwa kursi itu tidak sempurna,
rusak seiring usia kami dan bus itu.
Yang kami tahu, bus itu untuk kami,
kami pemiliknya. Kami hidupnya.

Sekarang aku disini.
Tidak tahu kapan busku tiba.
Kapan dia akan menemaniku menunggu bus
dan menaikinya bersama-sama.

Kapan aku bahkan sadar bahwa dia bus itu.
Agar aku tidak kehilanganya.

Yang aku tahu.
Dia bukan sekedar bus.
Sebutlah dia sebuah analogi.
Dari sesuatu yang indah.
Yang menghidupkan.
Pelajaran pertama dan terakhir dalam hidup,

Welcoming the tenth month, October :)

I'll list ten things i've thought about this month, they are :
1. My brothers will celebrate their 17 and 13 birthday, and i thanked God i've already known what they want (as they've asked me about a week ago) and both of their present are expensive! Well, i know that birthday is a right time to ask mamapapa to buy you something worth (as i did also) and my brothers knew it well, so, let us see. But i'm sure it will be theirs soon hehehe..

2. I'll have my mid term exams, started this Sunday. I still have 2 important observations to do, and still don't know where to find the perfect subjects. Though i've thought about it already, i'm still curious, hadehhh..

3. I will start a new thing, yeah, i've started yesterday and i guess i'll keep on doing that things:p

4. I have to cut my fringe, it looks terrible now hahaha..

5. I'll do my foot treatment more often, and also take a bath with warm water, or in other way is doing my own spa at home hahaha, thanks to my kost, i have a big bathroom my own, it helps a lot to do "relaxation".

6. I'll have two wedding receptions this month and i'll have fun with my high school friends there, though the bride and groom aren't my friends in high school hahahaha..

7. I've been canceled to be "something" in UNTAR, but i still wanna congrats UNTAR who'd celebrate it birthday today. My campus looked so pretty now, especially in the night. They made many lampions there, and now it looked more like my room hehehe. I love lampion, and i planned to use lampion in my future home.

8. I'll buy many books! (it a must, at least one book for one month, err.., maybe one book for two month if i have no time to go to Gramedia for a month)

9. Promising myself not to buy new clothes until December (hahaha, i'm laughing myself while writing this point, can i do that?? hahaha). Oya, don't forget to wear Batik tomorrow, i'll wear first Batik shirt tomorrow.

10. Before i pass exams, observations, and many hard days, i'll have holiday starting tomorrow, yippieee.. That's why i write a post today, while studying for exam. I can't wait. I know it will be great *blinking eyes

So, have a great welcoming October. No more cry and sadness (for me). I felt glad today, i used my tubular shawl, felt happy in bright blue also, wah, i know it will be a great month for me. God bless people, have a blessed day :)
