Where I’ve been hiding lately. Petra’s Library! Yes, just because of thesis, I’ve been staying so long in library, even one day when it’s their closing time and all lights are being turned off I am still in front of my laptop typing and screaming like, “WTF! I just spend my last 30 minutes searching for these books (looking at a pile of maybe four books) and now they are closing?!!!”
Guess what, this camel is 100% made from date palm, so expect a sweet camel meat. Haha, this camel will also bring record from MURI (Museum Rekor Indonesia) to City of Tomorrow Superblock Mall as the biggest camel made from date palm. Cool, huh ?
Wake up with sore throat is the most thrilling thing to have today, imagine how can I sell something if I even lose my sound ! After lunch, I quickly go to buy sore throat medicine in Boston drugstore with Phel, because he is willing to go to barber, but the barber shop is still closed. The medicine feels sweet, I eat them all and fortunately it works :)
Today is Sunday and this is the most tiring day in my job that I can’t have my time to make any post. (sigh), but what good is that I am again gain back my top seller position, with total sales of 32.2% of my target within a week ! Incredible ! I hope to reach the target within the second week :)
I’m introducing Keanu! An 11-months old Himalayan Male Cat. This one is big and strong! The color is seal point, although I’m not sure what it means, but just takes a look at Keanu, he wears a perfect batman mask on his face and black socks in his feet, cool! The former owner doesn’t really know when is Keanu’s birthday, so we just put it as 1-1-2011. Keanu has beautiful eyes and also is a clever cat, hope he likes his new home :)
*Somehow deep in my heart, I miss Chiko. Thinking how sweet it would be to have him growing up to become as big as Keanu :(
Keanu | Born: 1 January 2011 | Adopted: 26 November 2011
Saturday! Today is a lovely day, Me, Phel, Steve and Amin went Aryaduta for swimming along with John and Jet. It was quite fun because we have Amin now as our new bullied target. Haha. Swimming all day is getting me tired now.. After swimming, Steve takes us to eat Tahu Tek Pak Jayen. Tahu tek is one of the special food in Surabaya, this time I order a spicy one, with 5 chillies! It tastes wonderful ! John and Steve ordered the no spicy at all one, with no chilli at all, Jet and Amin with 3 chillies, and phel with 2 chillies and he is already dying! Haha. Pak Jayen is totally a must try when you are in Surabaya, price? IDR 9K.
Today I attended a seminar title “From Local Winner to Global Competitor”. It is a seminar by Mr. Tri the regional marketing manager of Cambridge University Press. The seminar was quite attractive, he shares his bad experience during his first year of university. He finished his senior high school with the top three highest score in Jakarta and applied for scholarship in Singapore Education Minister and got the full scholarship in NUS, everything is covered in the scholarship. The first time he thinks that it will be easy for him to get his degree in NUS because he was the top three students in Jakarta, but thing didn’t turn out to be as what he expected. In the end of first semester, he even got a “F” grade in one of his subject. He said that we always think that we are already a winner, we have the self-ego thinking that we don’t have to study that much, we don’t have to ask our friend, etc. But the reality says that the local winner doesn’t always mean that we will become a global winner also, we need to cope with the changes that we encounter. A good quote he takes from Adam Smith (I don’t know whether I still remember it all) “It is not the most intelligent creature nor the strongest one that will survive, but it is the one that can deal with changes”.
