Third Sequels All The Way

This month is going to be a blast. there are three movies that I'm planning to watch with my hunny, and all of them are the third sequel of their own collections. namely the first is Spiderman 3, where the great ol' Spidey will meet and hit with New Green Goblin, Sandman and the everlegendary Venom. can't wait to see it soon. the movie is set to launch at 4th of May but from info from cineplex said that at 2nd of May the movie has already begun to show everywhere. and most of all, the tickets are sold from today!! you can buy tickets for this weekend's show. it's going to be wild I tell ya hehe..

OK, secondly there is Shrek the Third. he's back with princess Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots, Prince Charming and many more. the story will revolve around the battle for the throne of the land of Far, Far Away. a battle? in a movie like Shrek? ho boy.. must be a funny battle scene then. although I'm not really into Shrek, my hunny is. so I guess it'll be fun if I watch it with her, since I can see her happy face ^^ can't wait for this one either. oh and the movie is set to launch at 18th of May. we'll see by then.

And last but surely not the least, Pirates of the Caribbean, At World's End. what ever happened to the slick, cunning yet somehow attractive and charismatic (not always though) Captain Jack Sparrow? after he's swallowed by the hideous beast pet of Davy Jones (I think it's a kraken or something) into the depth of Davy Jones' Locker, the rest of his crew now has to find a way to rescue him, and after that, the world itself. a spectacular battle will involve Jack Sparrow and the gang, Davy Jones and his henchmen, the Royal Navy, and the East India Trading Company at an enormous whirlpool. scheduled at May 25th, this movie is surely a must-see!! ^^

Blue Night

by Michael Learns to Rock

Lately you have been asking me
if all my words are true
Don't you know I'll do anything for you

Sometimes I haven't been good to you
Sometimes I've made you cry
And I am sorry for everything

but I promise you girl
I promise you this

When the blue night is over my face
on the dark side of the world in space
When I'm all alone with the stars above
you are the one I love

So there's no need to worry girl
My heart is sealed for you
And no one's gonna take it away

cos' I promise you girl
I promise you this

When the blue night is over my face
on the dark side of the world in space
When I'm all alone with the stars above
you are the one I love

Your voice is calling to me in my dreams
My love is stronger than it's ever been


A nice song. it's easy to listen, easy to learn and easy to sing. typical of a pop song by MLTR. but what I like most is the lyric of the song, which kind of similar to my condition now with my hunny. I may not be the best lover in the world, but I'm trying to be the best for you my love.

So quoting MLTR, I'm saying this to you. My heart is sealed for you and you are the one, only one if I may add, that I love. *mwah*

Between Nightmare and Reality

- A letter of a tattered and torn lover -

Woke up battered, lost and confused this morning. I could hardly get any sleep last night, well I slept at 5 though. now I don't really know what to do, with lack of sleep and self confident, I'm starting to believe that my world is slowly but surely crumbling down.

Is this a dream, a hallucination of blurry mind, or is this reality, bites as hard as it hits? if this is a dream please wake me up, and if this is reality please pick me up.

Dunno whether I should say this or kept it inside, but I love you, I really do, and I miss you.

So Dang Careless..

Another wrong entry at MAX's blog. I forgot to check which blog it was when I wrote the entry. oh well, it's like hitting two person with one stone I tell ya. anyways, below is the entry I wrote there which is supposed to be here in the first place. so there.

Gonna start on using Torque this Mon. in the mean time, gotta finish the XNA slide and demos for this Sun's MAX gathering. quite a short entry this time, although it's been almost a week without entry. really sorry for that, and will try to make up to it soon.

For now adios amigos. mucho gracias for the reading and comments.

Microsoft In JHCC

This morning I went to JHCC with Ricky and Kukuh to attend an event by Microsoft. they are launching Windows Vista, and along with that are other seminars. each of us attended one different seminar as there are a lot and the rule is that a person cannot exchange seminars in between the time the seminar is held. I entered for the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and later on Ricky tagged along since he said the MCF (I rather forgot, is it Microsoft Compact Framework or Microsoft Communication Framework) is rather boring.

After three speakers, namely Risman Adnan, Agung someone (sorry I forgot >_< ) and Zeddy Iskandar, had their share of time and presentation, we finally went back to office. on the way back, we stopped near Permata Hijau for lunch. me and Ricky had Baso Pak Kumis, while Kukuh ordered some satay from a stand nearby. after some munching and talking, we finally left. some useless info btw, I bought the newest Zigma.

Arriving at office, I started to fiddle more on XNA and HLSL. still lots of pain and confusion hanging around. oh, I'm not teaching tonight since the students said so. guess that means more time to fiddle? or for rest? only God knows. -____-

A Quickie

Not much to write today as I can't really think of something to put in here, other than the fact I'm starting to learn HLSL more. quite a language it is since it's starting to confuse me more and more.

Not to mention the deadline that's drawing near. aarrrrgh.. the pain.. the agony.. *urgh*

Signing off for the moment. be right back tomorrow, hoping with something to write here.

Looooong Weekend

Yup, what a long weekend it turned out to be. well not really that long since it's only a day more than the other weekends. hmm, let's see. for start, at Fri I just stay at home playing games and having a nice rest. but then my bro starts talking about how he wanted to make a suit for his friend's weeding this Sat. so off I go with him and my mom to Ciputra Mall, or should I say CL. there we went to M.J. Textile and there we ordered 2 suit, which I chose the black color while my bro picked the greyish black one. the clerk there said that it can be done by this Sat and it only cost 400k. cheap? on the average? not really sure but at least now I own a suit. ^^ pretty neat eh? at least I got something to wear at Ricky's wedding party later.

After that, I went to Citra 21 to buy a couple of tickets for the TMNT movie. yeah, the turtles are back in actions. this time they are fully animated in smooth 3D. for me, it's like childhood times all over again, the excitement in seeing them fighting, the fearless Leonardo, smart Donatello, anti-hero Raphael, and the clown Michaelangelo. Shredder is not around though but that doesn't mean there aren't any mean enemies. okay enough for the movie, i don't want to end up spoiling things. after the movie, it's go home, take a bath and play games while talking on the phone. with who? none other than my one and only hunny ^^ *mwah*

At Sat, I woke up at 12 and ate lunch after a short bath. and after that it's the usual Saturday routine where I talked to her at phone and went to Medit with Jun for basketball session. played until it's dark (around 7 that is) then went home just to found out that the water from PAM is so dang dirty, I skipped bath that night. can you imagine? skipping bath even after I played basket. boy I felt so dirty and itchy but what can I do? finally after a short talk with my hunny, I cooled myself at my mom's room. going to bed at 1 after watching American Idol.

Sunday. hmm, woke up with sores almost everywhere. I went to office to finish up some works I forgot. and after that went to CL again at noon. ate at McD and then going around window-shopping. my sis joined me for a while and after that she went elsewhere with her bf. so at 3 I wanted to go home but it's raining real hard. so I got no choice but to wait until the rain stopped, and finally at 5 I was able to go home. took a few detours since there are some areas flooding because of the rain. got home at 6, took a bath, and talked to her until it's time to dinner. and then talked to her again until sleepiness came. it's nite nite and sweet dreams time.

Monday morning came (and with it, a lot more sores *ouch*). woke up, took a bath, breakfast, and then off to office. talked to her all the way since she slept early last night and as the result, woke up early this morning. arriving at office before 8 and now it's working time. later then.

PS : told you it's a long one, right? oh, i didn't? well, now you know ^^

How Quick Time Flies

Been a couple of days without any entry. I'm beginning to get lazy again. hmm.. anyways, this past few days was quite confusing and mind-taking for me, since I'm still searching for good tutorials to learn about effects (fx) files for our game. well all I need is lighting and shadows for the moments, but still nothing found on the web. quite frustrating though.

On the other hand, I happened to try a few MMORPGs lately. they are free and quite fun to play, but at the cost of me being addicted? hopefully not. well, the first one is RF Online, which I played on a private server and guess what? the morning I started playing it and at the very same day, it was shut down. apparently Lyto being the true legal owner of RF Online wasn't very happy about the fact that there are people already playing the game, and worst, freely.

Next, there are Heroes and Scions of Fate. both are games which I played using international servers, since they are not available in Indonesia, and I guess they're never will. Heroes is a game which focused on Chinese traditions. nice graphics, movements and such. too bad I can't create my own character.

While Heroes can't create your own character, Scions of Fate can. in Scions, it's quite a fantasy world, eventhough more or less it still takes the looks of Asian cultures. the characters are in SD mode so it's more like a cute game. but the leveling is so hard, you'll practically need a party to do leveling starting from level 15 i guess.

Well, I'm not really an addict to MMORPGs anymore, although sometimes it itches me to go and try some games. but ever since I quitted RO, MMORPGs are more or less the same to me, be it Tantra, Seal Online, RYL, WOW, FF XI or the three I just mentioned above, or even the others that I may have not known yet.

Well, to me it's all just about leveling, choosing a job, collecting stash to make money so you can buy stronger weapon and armor so you can go to places with stronger monster to level up evenmore, sell stashes that are more expensive, and so on and so on. maybe sometimes forming a party so you don't die quickly, doing quests to get unique weapon or armor so you can show it off to some n00bs, being pestered by amazed n00bs afterwards. oh and most of the games now have something called pet system, some have marriage system. but then again, maybe it's just me being too lazy to do leveling since there are so much bots and cheaters lurking around.

Gamers these days. pah..

PS : not quite the entry you would expect when you read the title eh? ^_^ luv ya hun <3 *mwah*

I Like Monday

So another beginning of a week. Just for a recap, last Sat I went to basket at Medit as usual, and then go home and get some rest while talking to my hunny. I did go online for about 15 to 20 minutes for checking up my bank account for the donations.

At Sun I went to the elder house with my hunny and the IC guys. it's fun there, we sang, we laughed, and we gave hugs to most of the old peoples there. I can see the happiness in their eyes by our visit. hopefully what we've done will give them happiness and strength for the days to come.

After that, me and my hunny went back to my place for some chit chat and game. she went back home at three. spent the rest of the day playing games and talking to my hunny by the phone. by the way, it's our another yet happy monthlyversary. five more to come before our real anniversary. really looking forward to it hunny. love you verily machily *mwah*

Monday comes, and when I arrived at office, Candra gave me the installer for RF Online. tried and played for a couple of minutes, I guess the game is ok. maybe I'll invite my hunny to play together. maybe that way, it'll be more fun.

Anyway, those are just some intermezzo. time to get back to work now so later then.
