(Still) My Best Birthday, Though…

There are some reasons why I do fvcking love January. I celeberates my bornday on 11th January is the first¬†reason. Secondly, in the spirit of happy new year and in the name of resolution of life, most of people are still think of positive things that must be achieved in a year ahead. Thirdly, because January is in between of December and February. December is month of holiday and party season so at least I can lose control a little bit. February is month of love and the shorthest based on the number of dates, means I get my monthly salary a few days faster. Haha ūüôā Continue reading “(Still) My Best Birthday, Though…”

Happy Birthday Facebook! [Edited]

In order to celebrate the 10th anniversary, Facebook already made ‚Äč‚Äča video about the moments that we shared in our account. People can check their own through this addres after log-in,¬†http://www.facebook.com/lookback/. ¬†You can check with hashtag #FacebookIs10 to see a look back movie of your friends, or maybe your idols. I¬†¬†joined in 2008 and I still remember at that time if facebook relied the members to exchange stickers (not in the form of a chat application).

The first year I joined, I often make the status and hope to get a response (positive) from friends, despite the fact that less as expected. Then, the intensity was further reduced (to make status) and facebook continue to develop its features, like¬†enable its members to play games. At first tried the game, I was like, “Oh My God, I love the innovation!”.¬†

But then, when the number of users are increasing and also the selection of the games, I was a little annoyed by some notifications in the form of a game invitation and plus if every achievement in the game also shared in the timeline. One more thing, in my country, the most annoying thing that I can find in Indonesia is a lot of teenagers who have very strange names and hard to read.

Well, happy birthday Facebook! History has been recorded you as a breakthrough.

Btw, I miss the old of your note application. The features are way more cooler than now.

A Day After My Birthday

Seharusnya kemarin saya banyak mendengarkan lagu Happy Birthday sembari memejamkan mata dan make a wish, tapi 11 Januari berlalu dengan begitu saja. Memasuki pertengahan malam kemarin, sengaja BlackBerry saya matikan. Semenjak bangun jam empat pagi menjadi rutinitas harian, waktu tidur menjadi jauh sangat berharga.

Ucapan selamat ulang tahun datang bertubi ketika ponsel hitam bertombol qwerty dinyalakan kembali. Senang mengetahui beberapa teman masih mengingat hari kelahiran saya meski sejak tahun kemarin birthday notification di facebook sudah di-non-aktif-kan. Saya berharap, rekan di kantor tidak tahu atau lupa kalau saya bertambah umur. Tapi sia-sia, ketahuan juga akhirnya. Ada rutinitas yang sudah menjadi kebiasaan kalau siapa pun yang berulang tahun berkewajiban mentraktir rekan di kantor dan itu kemarin tidak dilakukan karena belum mempersiapkannya. Saya menjanjikannya hari kerja berikutnya saja.

Kembali ke paragraf pertama. Bukan lagu bertema happy birthday yang banyak saya dengarkan kemarin. Di pagi buta ketika dalam perjalanan menuju kantor, dengan earphone menggelayut di lubang telinga sambil membuka youtube melalui ponsel. Beauty in white by Westlife terpampang di laman utama. Bukan official video melainkan fan made video. Seumur-umur tahu lagu-lagu mereka, tak pernah saya mendengarkan lagu yang tadi. Padahal lagu lawas yang dinyanyikan ulang, duh!

So as long as I live I love you
Will have and hold you
You look so beautiful in white
And from now ’til my very last breath
This day I’ll cherish
You look so beautiful in white
Tonight

Seperti tersihir, according to my¬†lastfm account,¬†lagu tersebut terputar sampai 26 kali.¬†Jika boleh mengulang waktu, saya akan memejamkan mata sambil make a wish semoga lagu ini bisa menjadi wedding song saya suatu hari nanti.¬†Jika ada yang tanya kenapa? Because….¬†Christina Perri – A Thousand Years is too mainstream.¬†

Well, happy birthday to me.

Happy Birthday To Me!
