My First Cinema Exp in Thailand – Respect for The King

•March 24, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Yesterday night i watched my first movie in Thailand with my office mate Khun Jack and Khun Chum . SUCK SEED is the movie title , it’s a really great movie about love, friendship and dream.  It features all the famous band in Thailand such as Body SLam with Toon as its vocalist.

Its my first time watching cinema in Thailand, while everything is almost the same with common cinema in my country and every where else , there’s one special thing that i’m surprised. Before the movie started , all the people in the cinema must stand up for 2 minutes to pay respect for the KING (Majesty), it’s my first time to see a country who loves its king and respect him until in the level of respecting the King in the movie. I instantly compared it with my own country , Indonesia which always bring up demonstration to bring down the president frm its time to govern. It’s an irony. Sad Irony.

Anyway, it’s really great experience for me and refreshing one . While waiting for thour movie we happen also to eat Thai original home made ice cream Brand , jack told me . I- berry. I thought of Iphone and blackberry combined for ice cream name :p.  I ate my favourite taste Durian one, it taste really good because it made of the real fruit.

We happen to eat Ramen also. lol. We eat a lot because we come too early from the scheduled time. Its mine SpicyPork Ground Noodle

So, when you come to Thailand don’t forget,go to the cinema and prove it yourself :  )

I should say my love of Thai music gone up after watch this movie. I think i really like Thai music , altough i dont understand what the lyric means : (

my favourite quote of the movie ” some people born to lose , but not born to give up “

an Hour for EARTH – Lights OUT W.o.r.l.d !!!

•March 24, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Everyone knows earth hour, last Saturday of March annually celebrated by turning off all the lights , that’s what people know. But what most people do, they turn off light , turn on their laptop , putting up status on Facebook , Twitter, etc,  “Earth Hour baby”. So it’s better to make commitment to put all electrical appliances. But why is it once a year only ? that’s the question

But beside all of its limit, it’s a good to see all the full of blizzard building just darkened out for one hour. One hour give so much effect for this planet I guess..so how about we make it 2 hours a year ? that would be great isn’t it ?so you can put 120 instead on 60 on the posters , I’m sure no one will complain bout it, and we can doubled the great effect.

What we need is everyday consistency ,when we do energy saving little by little every day, it saves our planet, in the same time saves your electricity bill as well.

Its just the right thing to do. Interesting event that in one hand can also save the earth..

Everyone will get involved on something good like this.like many people make their resolution like selling the car, plan more trees , etc. Some people just get involved for taking picture and video, but its cool as it counted as promotion I guess. But I cant imagine how much electrical power wasted also on the publicity of this , but its count as an effort to save our lovely planet earth.

So now counted. 2 day 5 hour 7 minutes left.

Lights out baby !!

“You don’t need to be expert , you just need to be you and do your part !”

Here is the great video about earth hour 2011. I love it so Much…

Elephant Massage, what do you think ***?

•March 23, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Found my another Phuket -to do list .. Thai Massage , normal. Elephant massage , what the ?!? Can you imagined being stepped by this giant creature like this picture that i found on google ? Weeeww… i gotta try that !!

Elephant are said to be sacred animal on Thailand, but i can’t understand why people use it to make money. Elephant using tourism has been growing rapidly for jungle tracking, circus and also this massage thing.

Back to the topic, now what the elephant will do is usually play with you first with its trunk . and it will do soft massage on your back and front body. Dont worry , it will not step on you with all its weight. Just with one feet.

So there’s no harm to try. its absolutely will be unforgettable. These elephants are really smart when they like you they will play with your body more. Beside that they also can do attraction such as painting and acrobatic.

i would say ”  Thailand. If the ladyboys don’t get you the elephants will do it for ya “

Here’s funny video of Elephant Massage.

I don’t know what I’m thinking right now yet I’m only 20 and I’ve got so much deep thinking about life. What to do next what with later, all the worries just come to me. I don’t know what the future will bring, but no one know

No one can see the future, there is still plenty of posibilities. There’s time to be lost, There are dream or hopes, youth is real freedom. ^ ^ Don’t decide your future already, enjoy your time now, love,  studies,  friendship…

I’ve always like the quote of don’t take life too seriously, but when I put thinking on it, as time goes by I’m afraid I will forget all the value that I treasured for my life, all the dreams that I carried on my heart. All the goodness that we ever been, holy , innocent heart inside us.

We are on the time where we will decide where will be in the future, what kind of adult are we becoming. Our time is running out, I want to get married soon, I want to settle down, i want to make more money are what we might think about . People always try to play it safe, but I don’t know why I never want it to be safe and constant. I want it to be unpredictable. Where’s the fun knowing anything that will happen to your life. Maybe some of you will call me crazy or stupid  but I’ll walk my own path but ill never forget no matter what kind of person I become ill never forget school life. I’ll never settled down until I find what I really loved.

I really wants to make my parents happy but in the same time, I want myself to be happy as well. So please wait until I find that things that I’ll love to do for my life .

Sometimes I wonder what I’ve done in the past, when you remember all embarrassed things you have done in the past ,all that out is just a small smile hoping you can go back to that time again, doing all the silly things over again. Youth is the thing you not gonna wanna miss my younger friend, enjoy it make good memories without regret. Going to school every day is not something to complain about, maybe you will say why there’s exam assignment but when it all finish and you ended up as an adult sitting on the office working 8 hours a day you wonder if its better life as student ,you will always want to go back, where you have classmate, competition. School is just the best thing that can ever happen. Friendship, love, memories, knowledge we gain most of them on the school.

School is fun. Why do people learn? Is some question out of your mind sometimes…but for me learning with friends is fun…all the memories I ever had with you my friend from SDK2,SMPN1,SMAN1, MMUMelaka, MMU Cyber, Hanyang University ,all the trips, silly talks, laugh, tears that we share together I will treasure forever.

So to all my friend out there. No matter what …be a good adult ..

i wish we can grow up wiser and be better person than we ur now

Go confidently in the direction of your dream. Live the life you’ve imagined.

Until next time we meet again . Live your life to the fullest without regret. ^_^


 

Until next time we meet again . Live your life to the fullest without regret. ^_^

HOW TO STAY HAPPY!


1.  Throw out nonessential numbers.

This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay ‘them’

2.  Keep only cheerful friends.

The grouches pull you down.

3.  Keep learning.

Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s.

4.  Enjoy the simple things.

5.  Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6.  The tears happen.

Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love

Whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.

8.  Your home is your refuge.

9.  Cherish your health:

If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

10. Don’t take guilt trips.

Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

11. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:

  • Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
  • Please share this with someone. It’s easy, just use one of the “Share” button below
  • We all need to live life to its fullest each day!!
  • Worry about nothing, pray about everything!!!
  • hearses don’t have luggage racks … you can’t take it with you!

Peace, love, and living each day,
