Merry Christmas

One of the way to show your loved-ones your heartfelt gratitude

I know it's 27th, but here is the thing that there is no way it's late for saying Happy Christmas, if we really mean it from our heart, as a moment of us to be a new person, reborn and therefore it is everyday.

Last 25th, I went to church with all family members - and it feels so different compare to last year when I was in my grandparents' house in Frankfurt. That night during the mass, I feel my heartfelt gratitude to celebrate Christmas with my family again, father, mother and brother I love you.

Get ready for the upcoming New Year 2011!


Especially for my mom, she deserved a present with a special card

Home is where your Friends are.

This kid is funny and has the most beautiful legs.

Me and the big boss, the celebrity on campus. She is going to be mad if she sees the caption I guess.

First time went out with favorite girls on Earth, my high school people. It has been just 3 months since last summer we met, but however it always nice to meet them - and there are zillion things to talk, 3 hours ain't enough. Before I left home, I found a serious problem on what outfits should I wear since I left my whole wardrobe in Duino, I just completely forgot to bring them all back. I went home with only 3 tops, 2 pairs of trousers a dress and some heavy clothes that I never wear there, fortunately I left some clothes last summer. Anyway, we went to this shopping street in Tebet, to have lunch and talk about life after fully never met for 3 months. I ate this very spicy fried duck, which I could not find in Italy, , man I am loosing the skill of eating spicy food.

The good news is everybody's home. Apart from one our loveliest friend, Nini who studies in Canada. But all the "American" students are home this winter. Tutti, tutti, anchi'o! Yeah, it is going to be a bit awkward seeing all my friends in universities and I am just applying this year - but the good thing is that I feel motivated to meet them next year in United States! Another good news is we are meeting again this 23rd December - at a Christmas lunch held by one of our good friends.

I love to be around with friends, even in this busiest and most needed-writing-essays-time like this. And that's the point of going home, spending time with people you love, righty righty?

There are always thousands things happening in that small little gadget.

At the end we went to another sushi restaurant, after eating the duck and durian gelati!

People love to be noticed. I love it too, but it is more than just being noticed - being confident and comfortable. They can get along. You wear something that makes you feel comfortable, your soul feels good and yourself indeed feel good too, it will at the end boost your confidence.

I need two stuffs that will make me feel that way, not that help me, because I think I already feel those ways but, never get enough. Let's call it wish list for Winter 2011.

I have a pair Oxford shoes, only a pair and that's not enough! I need more. I just love Oxford shoes, geez! You have no idea how I always stop whenever I see any kind of classy oxford, I gotta connection with Oxford shoes.

And the other one is furry coat. I have not found the one that really "calls" me - still trying. Hope am getting one this December, next week I gotta go round mia citta, Jakarta and find them. Me likey when it is about hunting things that I have craved for!

Hey you later!

Something That is Needed

Hello, I am finally home for winter break. This time I just need to be home to finish my university ,unlike last year I stayed in Europe, and I enjoyed it so much, Europe is the most wonderful land during Natale . It gets me excited (college life!) yet nervous - I need to start working on my essays and supplements, I need to finish these supplement as soon as possible. Talking about essays and supplements, I need to make an art supplement even tough I am not applying to any schools of design, but I think it is really a great chance to tell the colleges your talents. I found my self connected with photography. It is new tough, since last year I got a SLR camera from my father, however in JHS and SHS I was famous as this girl who always walks with her pocket camera. And as I entered a higher education level especially in this international school so called United World College, I get lot of chances to enhance my hobbies. What makes me happier, as a beginner, I got so many credits and compliments from people loving my photos. It motivates me more and more. I think I have this artistic potential, but for now I haven't thought of focusing on it - since I want to do so many things and I still need to learn a lot!

I have been working on my art supplement since this morning. I make kind of fashion pages on from my photo shoot with my Slavic twins, two of my best friends in the college. Fashion page is a real good combination of showing your skill on photography, concept making, styling, design and words-play, all together - and moreover combining them as an eye catching pages. Very interesting! One of my another best friends who is pretty artsy and is applying to art schools told me that I should consider to take Photojournalist in the college, since she saw me capable of taking picture and giving a suitable title on it, it is indeed considerable since I would love to learn more about Journalism with a combination of Political Science and Economics - see I just want to do so many things in life. And this is also why colleges in the USA such a perfect destination for me since we are allowed to learn as much as we want not specifically to a major at the beginning.

Later in this post, I will show you some of 300 photos that have been selected to fill the fashion pages, but not the page. I don't think it is quite proper to put it here, it is like putting your personal statement on your blog, ridiculous. Apart from it, I have issues with originality, I feel like lately some of my styles and ideas were copied by some people that have common interests like I do - so you know, it is indeed unpleasant knowing someone kind of steal my fruit of thoughts again.

The general theme of the pages is about something you need. Something you need in life in order to make you survive; love, friendship, happiness and also education! Have to tell you something that one of my photos won the UN Chronicle Picture Education Photo Contest 2010. And it makes me proud, obviously it is a UN people who decided it.

All right, if I got accepted to one of seven universities that I am applying, I will send post the photos. The notification will be on March tho and you know, time's ticking so fast.
Bye for now.

I like the way she smiles in this photo, and how the sun projects to her hair.

I love her laugh. She is the toughest and kind-hearted girl in the college!

This photo remind me a lot of Gossip Girls.

p.s: I will try to make more photo sessions if I have time, since so many other things interest me .
