Besok hari terakhir boleh kampanye lho, puas2in deh share segala macam baik buruk capres! Mulai hari minggu kena sempriit kartu merah📕ya!
Dan INGAT, proaktif cegah kecurangan dengan langkah sesuai gambar..
Saat perhitungan, kalah atau menang, semua saksi tetap harus berani laporkan segala kecurangan, jgn cuma yg kalah yg teriak2!

Dan setelah itu, bagi siapapun Presiden terpilih haruslah :
Independent memilih menteri bersih dan berkompeten,
Selesaikan kasus korupsi Century dan bus berkarat,
Transparansi penggunaan APBN,
Tegas berantas ormas anarkis,
Bongkar dan hukum seluruh mafia termasuk mafia migas sampe ke akarnya,
Jalankan pembatasan BBM bersubsidi,
Tegaskan kebijakan LCGC untuk daerah tidak padat penduduk,
Terapkan pendidikan dan kesehatan gratis untuk seluruh anak dan rakyat tdk mampu,
Turunkan konsumsi rokok dalam negeri tapi siap tingkatkan cukai dr komoditi selain rokok,
Giring Lapindo tunaikan ganti rugi,
Kembalikan netralitas media penyiaran dan cetak,
Dan terakhir yg terpenting, tuntaskan kasus orang hilang dan pelanggaran HAM masa lalu!

Kalau bukan kita, siapa lagi yg mendukung orang baik menjabat dan tegakkan hukum..!
Kalau bukan sekarang, kapan lagi orang jahat lepas jabatan dan dihukum..!

Demi masa depan bangsa ini! Demi anak cucu bangsa Indonesia!

-peace-

Maroon5 Overexposed-tour Song List

Just watched on youtube the full concert of Maroon5 in Sao Paulo (26 Aug – 97min) part of their Overexposed tour. Five songs were from Overexposed album, while the rest would still be catchy in your ears & ofcourse melt your heart down when you’re about to see them back live in Jakarta. They also played Gym Class Heroes’ Stereo Hearts and jammed a bit of Justin’s Sexy Back. So despite the bad review of their latest album, the live show might still have a place on any fan’s heart.

Below are the song lists in Sao Paulo :

  1. Payphone (overexposed)
  2. Makes Me Wonder (IWBSBL)
  3. Lucky Strike (overexposed)
  4. Sunday Morning (songs about jane)
  5. If I Never See Your Face Again (IWBSBL)
  6. Wipe Your Eyes (overexposed)
  7. Won’t Go Home Without You (IWBSBL)
  8. Harder to Breath (songs about jane)
  9. Wake Up Call (IWBSBL)
  10. One More Night (overexposed)
  11. Hands All Over (hands all over)
  12. Misery (hands all over)
  13. This Love (songs about jane)
  14. She Will Be Loved (songs about jane)
  15. Stereo Hearts
  16. Daylight (overexposed)
  17. Don’t You Want Me Baby/Sexy Back/Moves like Jagger (hands all over)

If you feel you shall not miss this year’s performance with above list even if you have watched them 18months ago (which I think they had a better list), so hassle no more, go find a ticket while available.
And by the time you’re watching them, be sure you will have heard those new singles couple of times so you will not feel aside.


March in Europe : Fixing the Itineraries

In early February, Garuda announced that they will be reducing the flight frequency to Amsterdam due to some financial reason, from 7 times a week becoming 4 times a week, starting March 1st, 2012.  Since that date, GA 088 (Jakarta to Amsterdam) will only run every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, while GA 089 (Amsterdam to Jakarta) will run every Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. This new policy make our flight on March 1st (which is Thursday) as NO FLY status. If I didn’t read the news in detikcom, I would not know this information because Garuda has not informed us. I then came to Garuda office to confirm this issue and follow up the solution for our flight to Amsterdam.

Garuda gave us several options to choose, whether to be rescheduled to 1 day after, 1 day earlier, or transferred to another flight (SQ, direct flight from Singapore). After thorough consideration and discussion, we then chose to reschedule 1 day earlier to February 29th, to keep fly with Garuda flight scheme (which is transitting in Dubai after 8 hours). Luckily, after quite long negotiation, Garuda also gave us a room to stay 1 night in Novotel Amsterdam Airport in effect of arriving 1 day earlier than planned. Even we would be happier if Garuda could upgrade the class to business, but it’s enough to cure our complaints.

We also got a complimentary room in Crowne Plaza Zurich Hotel from my uncle living in Switzerland. We then changed the place of stay in Barcelona to NH Belagua Hotel that have better location but more pricey than Putxet Hostal.  Hopefully, there will no other change in last minutes.

Permohonan Visa Schengen untuk keluarga dengan anak balita

Untuk keperluan liburan keluarga ke beberapa negara di Eropa bulan Maret 2012, hari ini saya bersama istri dan anak datang ke Royal Netherlands Embassy di Kuningan untuk apply Visa Schengen untuk saya, istri dan anak saya (2.5thn). Minggu lalu, saya telah booking jadwal untuk hari ini (5 Jan) jam 8.30 melalui online bookingnya di http://jakarta.embassytools.com.

Sistem bookingnya pun sedikit menarik. Booking dibuka untuk jadwal selama 2 minggu ke depan, dan pada awalnya hanya dibuka untuk jam 8 pagi (15 aplikasi) dan 8.30 pagi (15 aplikasi). Saat saya booking seminggu sebelumnya, kedua jadwal tsb masih open. Tetapi saat saya cek sehari sebelumnya, ternyata quota sudah penuh sehingga embassy membuka shift selanjutnya (jam 9 pagi) dgn quota 15 aplikasi juga. Berarti memang kita diwajibkan mengisi dulu jadwal terpagi hingga penuh. (Jadilah kita harus nginep ke rumah mertua yang lebih dekat ke Kuningan dibanding rumah kita di Bambu Apus, kalau ga, mesti berangkat jam brp kita dr sana untuk hadir pukul 8.30 pagi di Kuningan??? :))
Pada akhir proses booking, kita mendapatkan lembar undangan embassy yang harus kita print sendiri. Continue reading


Some Trailers for 2012 Movies

Superheroes and sequels will have a major and on-going presence on the big screen in 2012. Only a decade after shattering opening weekend box office records, Sony will reboot the Spider-Man franchise with Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker in 3D. Nicholas Cage will return as Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance in February. The Marvel superhero team, The Avengers, will introduce themselves to audiences worldwide in early May. The highly anticipated 3D film will crossover the characters from several Marvel superhero films including Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger. Christian Bale will reprise his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, the third installment in the renewed DC Comics franchise and likely the last from Nolan.

Hollywood’s love affair with sequels (and prequels) continues practically every month of the year. During the spring, audiences will see Sam Worthington reprise his role as Perseus for Wrath of the Titans (the sequel to 2010’s Clash of the Titans), as well as see the return of the American Pie gang in American Reunion and more outlandish horror-comedic spoofs in a new Scary Movie. In late May, Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith will revive their poular roles as Agents K and J in Men in Black III, which will be directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, who helmed the first two installments. A secretive project perhaps related to 1979’s Alien, G.I. Joe 2 (with Dwayne Johnson), Step Up 4, The Bourne Legacy (without Matt Damon though), Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days and The Expendables 2, will also all be released during the summer months.

Indonesian Records on 2011 Palm Challenge

All Indonesian finalists have made their best on this most anticipated Subaru Palm Challenge. Most of us were dropped out because of the untolerated stiffness of feet/leg/arm, while I was unable to hold my stomach ache any longer..

Below are the complete records of Indonesian team :

Antony 18h
Mirza 20h12m
Agi 20h20m
Dicky 24h58m
Sularno 27h57m
Hardy 30h25m
Beni 33h
Yatna 40h
Mario 55h
Frendy 62h

Frendy is still holding the title of Indonesia’s Country Winner he held since last year challenge, even with 6 hours shorter than his own record.

As I post this, the challenge is and has been running more than 72hours, with only 3 remaining contestants, all Singaporean, with no more 5min breaks will be given.


The awards of Subaru Palm Challenge final

I’m on my way to Soekarno Hatta to join the rest of Indonesian team to compete at the 10th Subaru Palm Challenge in Singapore with total of 400 contenders from 10 countries including Kamboja, Macau, China, Malaysia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Philipines, Thailand, Singapore & Indonesia.

The last person standing will be awarded as the Winner & entitled a Subaru Impreza WRX. Besides that, there will be other rewards for the Asian (non Singaporean) Winner, Country Winner, & Country-Team Winner.

Asian winner is the last non Singaporean standing while Country winner is the last person standing from each country. Asian winner is entitled of SGD 5,000, while the country winners are entitled of SGD 1,000 per winner as the prize. The Country-Team Winner is country whose accumulated time of the team stands out the longest. This category is giving SGD 10,000 per country as the prize. It makes every team supporting on each other member to stay up in the competition.

Hopefully I’ll get any of the prize otherwise I have to be satisfied with the given SGD 360 cash allowance being the Indonesian finalists.

The event will start at 1PM tomorrow in Takashimaya outdoor area, & I won’t be tweeting since no gadget allowed, so follow my wife @deepermana to get the updates because she will be supporting me on the spot.

Wish me get rid of my cold..
Wish me not having bad metabolism..
Wish me my skin not too burnt..
Wish me luck!!
