Shortly before everyone is going out for holiday, we have our annual year-end dinner at usual place, Maya’s apartment. Serving the very delicious western food from Beef Bang!, the usual agenda is held: reviewing achievement of this year’s resolution, sharing our resolutions for 2018, and of course, cross-gift ritual with “pantun” (poet in rhyme) as added spice.
Finally I bought a bike. This is part of my year 2017 resolution – which is to have regular sports activity. As running is not (yet) my thing, riding a bike is a more feasible option.
I used to have Dahon folding bike before. But I have not used it for long time, so when my maid asked for it, I had no hesitation to give it away. And I’ve been eyeing Brompton bike for about some time. Well it was love on first sight when I tried my friend’s Brompton bike during my stunt act as Jokowi couple of month ago. “I got to buy this bike”.
Our friend Novy is celebrating her fifty birthday at Hotel Dharmawangsa Jakarta. It’s a grand party, and a fun one, as a chance for us to meet many old good friends. Congrats Novy! May you have a blast for the day and the future shines so bright for you!

Intrigued by their complex song writing, yet with catchy melody lines, I joined the band wagon of my friends in Jogja, to buy the cassette. And honestly, I consider the album as one of the best rock album of all time. Well, take a look at the title of my blog then you realize from where I get the inspiration.That’s why when Dream Theater announced they will be playing in Jogja, celebrating the 25th anniversary of this monumental record, I wasted no time. Bought the pre-sale tickets for me and my old Jogja friends, and here we go, back to Jogja, the city where we listened to Dream Theater for the first time. Continue reading →
Our Pukpuk Arisan is back! This time, the theme and activity is indoor virtual golf at V-Golf Lotte Avenue. Well, while swinging golf club is an alien concept for some of us, but we did have fun and look natural in our golf outfit, did we? 😊
Yes, the big reunion is over. But the great memory lingers. The traffic of our whatsapp group spikes significantly the past two days. Many of our long lost friends reappear. Friendship is rejointed. Feeling is reconnected.
Let us rejoice this moment, when we suddenly live in time capsule where time stands still.
Meanwhile, here are some leftovers from the reunion. Some of nice pictures with great friends:
