One of the most eagerly awaited movie on 2017 is the Critical Eleven. And it was really worth waiting for. Critical Eleven is actually a movie based on a mega-best-selling novel with the same title by Ika Natassa. A lot of talented people were hired to make this amazing movie, including Ika Natassa herself as the scriptwriter along with Jenny Jusuf, Chand Parwez Sevia as the producer, both Monty Tiwa and Robert Ronny as directors, Isyana Sarasvati's 'Sekali Lagi' as the original soundtrack, and so many gifted people as the casts, such as Refal Hady (as Harris), Hannah Al-Rashid (as Tara), Astrid Tiar (as Agnes), Mikha Tambayong (as Renata), and even Hamish Daud (as Donny).

But above all of them, people's (and also mine) most favourite couple on screen were hired to be the main characters in the movie. Those are---of course---Reza Rahadian as Aldebaran Risjad, and one of my favourite role model, Adinia Wirasti as Tanya Baskoro. On this post, I will be explaining not-so-m…

Indirect Speeches!!!

Hi, everyone! ^^)/

It's been a long time since the last time I posted something on this blog. I've been through some hectic and thrilling (well, mostly boring and full assignments) experience in my current school. And right now, I'm writing this post just to fulfill one of the tasks that needs to be done for the final exam.

This assignment is based on the conversation from page 28.

Rudi met Ben and greeted him warm-heartedly. He asked Ben how were things going on in his life. Ben replied the greetings and told Rudi about how great he looks in his black jacket. Rudi thanked Ben for saying so. Ben asked Rudi whether the outfit was new or not, for he had never seen it before. Rudi said that his sister had bought the jacket when she went to Singapore.

Rudi then complimented Ben about his new hairstyle. He asked Ben where did he cut his hair, since he liked it a lot. Ben thanked Rudi for thinking so, and told him that it was his brother that had done it for him. He also stated that…

The Glorious Komodo Dragon

Gambar
We all have our own special someone, who is somehow really contagious towards us. Ever since we know them, suddenly, whether we realize it or not, we started to like doing something we've never done before, or maybe eat something we don't like, just because these special people love to do that.

I had my special someone, once (he's still my special ones, tho). He loves animals so much, particularly fishes and giant lizards. And apparently, his love towards those reptiles has influenced me, who used to hate animal so much, to love and to care about these amazing creatures. And today, although I really hate to do this, I'm going to share a little part of him that dwells somewhere between my mind, which is one of his favorite creature, the Komodo Dragon.

2. Could you give me my brand new-black-Indonesian-rubber bracelet, Dear? It's on the cupboard. I want to wear it when I go to the party today!

3. This is a spectacularly-breathtaking-huge-modern-rectangular-colorful picture you draw here, Hon! So fantastic!

Anyways, have a nice day, guys!

A Moment to Refresh My Soul -pt.1-

*the trilogy was written based on my 3-days-experience when everyone celebrated the "Rachnandyaguna"* 
September 8th, 2017
I received my Physics test result with a bitter smile painted on my face. It was the second time I had the lowest score so far throughout my life within a week, 37.5. I felt really down, devastated, and disappointed. Everytime I looked at my paper, I started questioning myself. "Why am I studying here? Why didn't God put me in the same school I used to attend? Does He know that I'm struggling so bad here?" That moment, the only thing I know was that I'm a failure. I was too tired. Tired of the school, of my family, and of my life. I didn't think I'll survive even longer if I stay there. 

But little did I know, that what would happen in the following three days, will eventually change how I feel when I look at the paper, and my perception of my life's meaning.
