It's been long since I've been to Plinky, so here it goes.
In Indonesia, there's school holidays around June-July. I was thinking of spending the rest of the holiday on activities in front of the computer, but my mom thought else. I was sent for a swimming lesson.
First impression, the teacher's nice, but then it started going so money-oriented it scams us – me and my mom. Long story short, I'm able to finish the lesson, with two swimming styles in my hands, all without any thorough teacherly help from the teacher, only giving pointers then abandoning me to try it out myself. Curse him.
I also am now equipped with a camera so I can make a few photographies of my own. Funny thing though, my sister took control of it in the first days and a friend of mine – an expert photographer in our class in school – says her photographs are awesome, eventually doubting her that she haven't learned any photography in any class and saying her composition is awesome. Me? I have no objects to photo, but was able to create a light motion photo – or whatever it is called.
Back a while ago I also am able to learn guitar, although the guitar I have is now abandoned in the corner of my room, sitting there "forever alone". I also learned a few cooking recipes, simple one such as grilled cheese, fried rice, fried noodles, and toasting bought bread to make a sandwich, which my friends complimented when tasting it.
So there's my new skills.
Image via Wikipedia, the game I hate so much than other games I played.
First, apologize the late update of my blog. Got work to do.
Ever heard of DotA, the popular mode in the old game Warcraft 3? I know you do, especially males, and I just hate it so much I decided to make DotA to be the main topic of this post full of rants and opinions. Bear with me as I explain how this actually cool game full of wit-using and strategy-taking processes beaten to death with all the players.
Here we go.

Fifth Plinky answer. Phew, it's been so long.
HTC Desire Z
Well, it's modern age, so you know what will I answer relating to this topic. Yes, cellphone.
As I said, it's now in modern age, and I don't want to leave home without this sort of gadget. What if someone called and told you some good news that you won a lottery and must call back soon or the winner will be repicked? What if your great-grandfather died after eating an oatmeal and you've been called to attend his funeral or you'll be called a jerk? What if your girlfriend texted that in an hour you must pick him up or she'll break you up?
You wouldn't want that to happen, unless you're a nobody. Yes, a nobody. Who am I kidding, even a nobody wanted the lottery scene to be real and perfectly helding a cellphone by then.
Plus, cellphone's a time killer. I'm using a HTC Desire Z just like in the picture, and if I somehow got stuck in a queue or waiting some friend, I just take out this nifty phone and play Angry Birds. Android rocks, you know.
Another thing I don't want to leave home when I'm outside is my (obviously) clothes. Also, lately I took a headphone with me in case Angry Birds doesn't fulfill my needs.

Yes, in the early April 2011 I got myself a new smartphone to replace my old Nokia E71. Shame to see that ol’ reliable phone going to my mother’s hands after being a target of hardmodding, unlocking, application installing and such things a geek might do, but it’s time to update the technology in my pocket and hands.
I’ve been wanting an Android phone rather than iOS (iPhone), which is rather expensive. Symbian? Nah, it’s old. Besides isn’t Nokia collaborating with Microsoft so that the new Nokia will be using Windows Phone 7 rather than Symbian? So, Symbian is definitely out of the question.
Then there’s the Blackberry. What, you expect me to use a vanilla tasting phone with nothing interesting except the Blackberry Messenger? I could live without that, so it’s between iOS and Android. I choose Android since I feel “Oh, this OS’s interesting.”
Before buying, I do a little research. I have ever used some of my friend’s iPhones and a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, which is a different phone but with the same capability: touchscreen keypad. I’ve tried, including my little sister’s Samsung Star, and all ended up in realizing that my fingers are helluva big that I am getting trouble in using the touchscreen. So, keypad is highly better. I started looking for brands, and at last find out that HTC is the giant in Android phones since all their Android phones have positive feedback. There’s HTC Desire, which is only touchscreen, and Desire HD which is also touchscreen only, and at last found this Desire Z with a keypad, YAY!
Unfortunately, not many of the stores here sell Android phones except LG and Samsung plus Sony Ericsson, no HTC at all. Until I found this shop which sells the Desire Z for about $450. Bargain much, so I bought it, fitted it with Capdase hard case and a self-fitted screen protector which is actually for iPhones or iPod Touches.
So, enough chit-chat and storylines. Let’s review!
A while ago I found a Korean song from a girl who is a friend of mine, who is aslso a K-pop addict (sorta) like me. It’s titled Girl’s Day – Twinkle Twinkle.
The protagonist of the MV is cute, IMO. My friend thought the girl with his hair tied like a cowgirl (tied two, don’t really know the term for this) looks better. Heh, unsame opinion.
Then, because of that link, I also found the new album of Big Bang! Yay, welcome back you guys!
Love TOP’s sound and Tae Yang’s vocals on the chorus, really no homo.
… and that’s it. Guh-bye.
Note that this one’s a ranting based on my lfietime experiences, so I wrote all this by myself.
As a socially challenged person, I always feel this emptiness when nobody’s around when I need it, or even the emptiness when people are around and they talk about topics out of my reach. It’s weird, I know, but that’s who I am.
I… am a jerk in my primary years. Making fun of people, crying like a baby whose lollipop got stolen, even ran as fast as a turtle and “somehow” broke my brain and started lifting people’s skirts. I regret that, as now I feel like having some autism back there. Now I’m a lot more sane even though I still act as a child sometimes, making silly faces and trying different emotions.

I decided to blog about this because of my past experiences in life and to remind people that all changes – the time when we’re forced by our life to leave things behind and start a new chapter fresh – is not always bad and you could live with it, or maybe do things better. We could be a better person because of this… well, not could, ALWAYS. All we need is just a pinch of optimistism and a fresh – be able to take every obstacles – mind. After all, what could’ve gone bad?
