This pictures are taken mostly from Jakarta Daily Photo, it shows us that even those who has limited capital can use their right brain to sell….eerrrrr…..everything that they can sell!
An image of a guy who sells water. I guess now we should really think twice before wasting too much water for useless purpose….
A guy who sells balloon! Although there are less than 20 balloons displayed, this man still has tons of determination!

There are so many things in life worth fighting for, so many things that we want to enjoy yet it requires tons of work and effort. Sometimes, even after we fight as hard as we can, we are not able to get a satisfying result. Failure has an extreme bitter taste. I’m a kind of person who actually believes in hard work but sometimes it is still not enough.
Facing failure makes me wonder sometimes, is it happen because of insufficient effort, is it happen because we simply don’t deserve achieving something, or its just one bad episode created for us? However, for the past few years I realize that sometimes failure leads us to a better result. Sometimes its just a medium which can leads us to another option which suites us more.
During my first semester in high school, I desperately wanted to get accepted in science major. However, no matter how hard i studied it seems that all the effort is useless (and i got a lot of bad scores). Sure it felt so bad to know that after fighting for months it’ll be impossible to achieve what i wanted, but since then I tried to look for positive sides of other major. Turns out that i fall in loooove with social major, and since the second semester I tried to put more attention for social studies. At the end of the year, I was accepted in the social major and i would say that it was one best decision I’ve ever made.. and it wont happen if it was not started by failure for entering my first option. At the end of the day, for me what really matter is not only about winning or loosing, achieving something or failing, but what is also important is to accept failure, deal with it, and turns it in to something which may gives us better result!

Simon Cowell is insanely creative! Don’t you love to watch shows like American Idol or America’s Got Talent? Those star-maker shows are created by this British-guy who loves to give spicy comments. Simon Phillip Cowell (born October 7, 1959) is an English artist-and-repertoire (“A&R”) executive and television personality/producer, best known as a judge on such TV shows as Pop Idol, American Idol, The X Factor, and Britain’s Got Talent. He is also the owner of the television production and music publishing house Syco.
His father’s connections originally got him rehired as the assistant to an A&R man. From there onwards, Simon worked his way up and eventually got promoted to a music publishing position but left during the early 1980s to form E&S Music with his boss at EMI, Ellis Rich (later Chairman of the Performing Right Society). The company had several hit records at one point with five singles in the UK top 40. The offices were in a converted gentleman’s washroom in the NCP car park on Brewer Street in London’s Soho district. Simon left by mutual agreement a few years later! Two thumbs up for this entertainment genius!

I loooove Grey’s Anatomy! I think that it’s the show with one of the most creative script of all time! When we think about hospital and doctors sometimes we just thought about pain, bored, nerds, static, and stuffs related to disease.
Grey’s Anatomy is such a good show, it can change your image about hospital and all of the medical-people! It shows that in hospital, there can be a lot of drama, affair, and tons of fun. And it shows us that even doctors can give insane comments and they can also have blonde-moments. I think I shall admit that I’m just so addicted to Grey’s Anatomy!!!

Piracy has recently become a hot issue. Especially when people from other countries are trying to claim our national heritage as something belong to them, and even registered a patent for it in their names. I just have huge heartache while reading about an article about accessories designer from Bali who can not export her products anymore because her accessory designs are already claimed by people from England. She felt so angry because the design was actually an ancient traditional Balinese design and it belongs to the people of Bali. Well, she is not the only victim. Each and every time there are just more and more traditional heritage “stolen” from our country. Creating traditional songs, fabric, design, and other heritage sure to be a very creative thing. It proves that Indonesian people can already extent their creativity since hundreds of years a go. I just felt that we should have another creative idea to protect what is actually belong to our country, created by our country. It’s just a shame when we have to face facts mentioned above…

These past few days my friends (which happen to be on the same CI group with me) and I are having a new obsession. Well this is not actually an ambitious obsession but it’s more like a guilty pleasure for us. It’s the Tarot card! Ha-ha, I’ve told you it such a guilty pleasure. Recently one of my housemates bought a tarot card along with tarot books and we just keep playing with it. Anyway, I realize that the whole card (even the devil one) is actually has some positive meanings behind it. Makes me wonder, the one who created Tarot must be very creative! There are a lot of cards and each has different meanings, pictures, and representations. Playing with it can also gives us certain kinds of confidence so even though I’m not a Tarot believer I just thought that it’s just so fun when I picked good cards!

For days and days i’ve been watching the trailer of HEROES over and over again in star world. Sure I get bored watching it but then it makes me think about what kind of super power do I wanted to have if i could choose. Well it’s true that sometimes I could be such a lazy person, therefore I would choose the ability to transform from one places to another within seconds! Besides reducing energy to walk or drive we could also travel to places all over the world, it also save a lot of time and money! I’d really loooooove to have that ability!
