Life Lesson | Prioritas dalam Hidup

Seorang professor berdiri di dpn kelas filsafat.
Saat kelas dimulai, dia mengambil toples kosong dan mengisi dgn bola2 golf.
Kemudian berkata kpd murid2nya, apakah toples sdh penuh...... ?
Mereka setuju !!!!
Kemudian dia menuangkan batu koral ke dlm toples, mengguncang dgn ringan.
Batu2 koral mengisi tempat yg kosong di antara bola2 golf.
Kemudian dia bertanya kpd murid2nya, apakah toples sdh penuh ??
Mereka setuju !!!
Selanjutnya dia menabur pasir ke dlm toples ...
Tentu saja pasir menutupi semuanya.
Profesor sekali lagi bertanya apakah toples sdh penuh..??.
Para murid berkata, "Yes"...!!
Kemudian dia menuangkan dua cangkir kopi ke dlm toples, dan secara efektif mengisi ruangan kosong di antara pasir.
Para murid tertawa....
"Sekarang.. saya ingin kalian memahami bahwa toples ini mewakili kehidupanmu. "
"Bola2 golf adalah hal yg penting; Tuhan, keluarga, anak2, kesehatan.
"Jika yg lain hilang dan hanya tinggal mrk, maka hidupmu msh ttp penuh."
"Batu2 koral adalah hal2 lain, spt pekerjaanmu, rumah dan mobil."
"Pasir adalah hal2 yg sepele."
"Jika kalian pertama kali memasukkan pasir ke dlm toples, maka tdk akan tersisa ruangan utk batu2 koral ataupun utk bola2 golf..
Hal yg sama akan terjadi dlm hidupmu."
"Jika kalian menghabiskan energi utk hal2 yg sepele, kalian tdk akan mempunyai ruang utk hal2 yg penting buat kalian."
"Jadi Beri perhatian utk hal2 yg penting utk kebahagiaanmu.
"Bermainlah dgn anak2mu."
"Luangkan wkt utk check up kesehatan."
"Ajak pasanganmu utk keluar makan malam"
"Berikan perhatian terlebih dahulu kpd bola2 golf.
Hal2 yg benar2 penting. Atur prioritasmu.
Baru yg terakhir, urus pasirnya.
"Salah satu murid mengangkat tangan dan bertanya, "Kopi mewakili apa?
Profesor tersenyum, "Saya senang kamu bertanya."
"Itu utk menunjukkan kpd kalian, sekalipun hidupmu tampak sdh sgt penuh, tetap selalu tersedia tempat utk secangkir kopi bersama sahabat"

Haul & Review | Braun Epilator

Finally, I got my hands on an epilator. An epilator is basically a "shaver" with many tweezers in it. I got it at Ulta for $49.99. I haven't really use it as I just got it literally 3-4 hours ago. I tried a little bit on my under arm, it hurt so bad that I just have to stop. I did it on my legs too and it worked GOOD. It is not as effective as I think it would be; as I have to go through the same spot for a couple of times. I thought with one stroke it would swipe all the hairs away. Im satisfied about this, I dont have to go to a salon to get my legs wax anymore. I dont have  any expectation/comparison as this is the first epilator that I have even own. It is so far so good.

Haul | False Eyelashes: Model 21 Lashes

I recently place an order at (on Aug 10th) and my order arrived today!! - Very fast service/shipping. The lashes are around $6.95 to $10 for 10 pairs which is not bad at all. In addition, if you purchase 3 sets you will get free shipping, and if u purchase 4 sets you will get free shipping and additional 1 set (10 pairs) of lashes of their choice. So, of course, I ordered 4 sets and get one set for free. Here are the pictures:

ps: hahaha I steal my fiancee dslr camera, and I dont really know how to use it. So the picture quality is so bad. Focused on the wrong angle and stuffs.

#1. Its a crisscross with medium length.

#2.  Its a crisscross, and its so much longer than #1

#13. Its a crisscross and its shorter than #1.
This is the most natural false lashes of this purchase.

#19. Its a crisscross with extra volume on the middle part.
This is as long as the #2 lashes

#21. This a combination of crisscross and normal one.
This one is also has the same length as #2
I am very very happy with this purchase. Its very affordable and the service is really really good. I am not sure if this is a fake "model 21 eyelashes" or not, but these lashes are not bad quality at all.

Review | Revlon Photo Ready Foundation

I just got these foundation at Ulta, I bought 2 shades; medium beige (006) and nude (004). I bought 2 because they are having a deal buy one get one 50% off.
Overall, this is pretty good foundation. I applied a light amount of foundation and it covers my acne scars pretty well. It is probably at least a medium coverage. I mixed the 2 colors and I think it matches my skin color pretty well. It didnt broke me out. There’s a little scent to it but i dont mind it.
I applied the foundation with my fingers. Personally, I like to apply liquid foundation with my fingers because I think it blends easier, and when I use a brush i tend to use more product that it needed. Moreover, I am too lazy to clean my brush every time after I use it and I feel disgusting to use the brush over and over again esp. for liquid foundation.
The packaging is way better that the “Revlon ColorStay Foundation” because these have pumps on it. The advantage of having a pump is that; its more sanitary and you also have control on how much product you are going to use.
I am very happy with this foundation!!

Cinnamon + Honey

I had a haircut today and they serve me with a "spice tea", I really really liked it. Theres a sweetness to it (more like after taste), so i thought there must be cinnamon in it. So I went home, make some tea, and I put cinnamon powder to the tea. I tasted it, but theres no sweet taste to it. So i added honey. It doesnt taste the same, but it tastes good!! Then I researched for its nutrition facts. WOW! it turned out to be something interesting. Heres some of the benefits that Cinnamon and Honey have:

01. Weight Loss: Drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup water first thing in the morning (empty stomach). If taken regularly it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also drinking of this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body, even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

02. Longevity: 4 spoons of honey, 1 spoon of cinnamon powder and 3 cups of water are boiled to make this tea. The prescribed amount is to drink 1/4 cup, 3 times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and slows down old age.

03. Immune System: The daily intake of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks.

04. Reducing Cholesterol: Take two tablespoons of honey, three teaspoons of cinnamon powder and mix in 16 ounces of tea, when given to a cholesterol patient, reduces the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10% within 2 hours.

05. Acne: Mix honey with cinnamon powder and apply paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash away the next morning.

There are a looooottt moreeee... but these are the ones that concern me :P.

Life Lesson | Kepuasan Manusia

Di Afrika, menjumpai sebuah oase ditengah padang belantara.

Didekat danau itu banyak batu2an dan terdapat sebuah papan bertuliskan :
"Yang mengambil batu akan menyesal.
Yang tidak mengambil batu juga akan menyesal"

Heran dengan kalimat itu, ada yang malah tertarik untuk mengambil beberapa butir batu2 itu untuk melihat apa yang akan terjadi selanjutnya

Beberapa yang lainnya tidak terlalu menggubrisnya. Jadi mreka tidak mengambil batu2 itu dan lebih tertarik untuk menikmati segarnya air di oase itu.

Setelah kembali ke Eropa, mereka menyuruh ahli batu2 untuk mmeriksa batu2 an yang mereka bawa itu. Ternyata batu2 an itu adalah sejenis Safir yang dari luar tampaknya jelek tapi didalamnya merupakan permata yang sangat indah dan mahal harganya. Yang tidak membawa batu itu jadi menyesal karena tidak membawanya, tetapi yang membawanya pun akhirnya menyesal karena tidak membawa lebih banyak.

Found Myself: I Don't Like Details

A few days ago, I was "researching" my own horoscope; one of my traits is Sagittarians don't like detail. So I began to recall my past, and observe myself. Surprisingly, I found out that I really dont like details: either telling the details when I say something, or even listening to somebody else's details.

That's why sometime people dont really get the point that I am trying to make because there are too much detail that I dont really tell them. Vice versa, when somebody is telling me something, I always missed a lot of details because I tend to pick the most important part of the story.

So do when I am at school, I picked up the things that I feel thats important. Even the way I dress, I like very simple clothes, with no details. I like simple food. I cant really think of anything else. But I understand now why I am the way I am.

Movie: Valentine's Day

Its been out for a week or so.. but the theater is still crowded.

Overall I think its an okay movie, there are a lot of famous actors/actresses. but I think it is not that impressive. There are too many stories going on to tell in a short period of time.

A little disappointing; two of my fav. male actors have a very bad role in the movie. Patrick Dempsey: He cheated on his wife in the movie, and Bradly Cooper: He's gay -_-"

I love the story about the old couple. so touching and i can feel the pure love! :)

Cant really say much about the movie caused as I said too many stories going on, that each stories doesn't go deep. I will rate it 3/5.

Found myself: Saying No.

i just realize why is it hard for me to say 'no' when somebody asked me to go somewhere, or do something even when i know that i wont be happy doing so.

after going to whale watching, we planned to watch a movie right after, but all of us were tired so we decide to go home and take a rest. and i dont feel like going to movie because i feel so comfortable at home.

my friend asked me to call the other friends to ask them that they are still up for the movie. i hesitate myself because i am 90% sure that they are going to give me excuses. but i did it anyway and i got the respond that i am expecting. truthfully i dont like rejection thats why i was hesitant to ask them.

then i realized that i dont really feel like going to movie. im so tired. and i think i am still dizzy from the sea sick. but its so hard for me to say 'no' because i dont want people to feel the same way like i do when i rejected them.
