PES 2017: The New Season is Here!

Bought the latest installment of PES/Winning Eleven today. First impression: can’t think how PES can leapfrog FIFA in sales department. There are even less clubs with proper license for authentic name, jersey and stadium.
Manchester United is back to Manchester Red, with default shirt nowhere near its real world counterpart. This was not the case for the last 3 years.

Worse, Real Madrid is called as whatever “Whites”. I suspect this is because of exclusive deal with Barcelona. And many other famous teams which was featured with proper licenses in last year edition received the same fate. Sigh.

On the graphic and gameplay, honestly I don’t see significant improvements. Maybe I haven’t played too long. But for time being, despite internet review score favors PES 2017 to FIFA 17, I found the latter with its interesting “Journey” story mode and newly used Frostbite game engine will take more game time for me.

Let’s see!

Jangkrik Boss!

Had HR Movie Night with my HR BER team at Lotte Avenue. As long time fan of Warkop DKI, I find the movie is very entertaining! And with such inspired casts (especially Vino Bastian as Kasino), and excellent mix between classic scenes and today’s jokes. Well done. Can’t wait for the sequel!

HSBC Golf Tournament

Well, I can tell you my ball landed on the green, but had no chance in beating the nearest to the pin award. Made par anyway🙂

Participated in office’s golf tournament at Pondok Indah Golf Course. Played solid off the tee only to find balky putters on the green. Had 4 or 5 three-putts, which is really disappointing as I played quite well. In the end, played at my handicap, but obviously could’ve been better. 

My foursome today, with Bank’s clients and one Indonesian Tour pro. Geez, this guy is good!

Ella’s Wedding Party

So happy to witnessing Ella, my long time friend and colleague, finally tie her knot with her man, Eri, today. May Allah bless you with happiness and barokah for your new chapter of life. Aamiin.

RIP Rey…

My cute little cat is gone today. My car accidentally ran over her. I’m beyond heartbroken. Devastated and sad. Regret it so much, and wish if only we could turn back the time.

But then I realized it’s Allah’s wish. She was meant to be with us for just two months. Nothing else we can do. Innalilahi wa inna ilaihi roji’un.

I love you dear Rey. It’s just last night you slept beside me watching football. It’s just this morning you happily ran all over the house with your joy and energy. And now our house will not be the same without you. We’re gonna miss you a lot. Play with Shaman in heaven, will you?

We love you. You’ll always be remembered 😢😢😢

Prasetiya Mulya Business Economic Strategy Challenge

Right away after landed in Jakarta, we went straight to Prasetiya Mulya Campus at BSD, to attend gala dinner of Business Economic Strategic challenge, which Aya and her team made it as finalist representing her school.

It was a 2-days and 1 night event where these high school students were in camp to study a business case and present it to the judges.

While her team did not win the competition, but surely this was great experience for Aya and her friends. Hopefully will help her to cast herself into successful entrepreneur or business women in the future. Aamiin!
