Legend of Mana, Playstation 1

The World Map

Finally, after almost over 10 years, I have managed to finish Legend of Mana, one of the fantastic games from SquareSoft. Yeeee!! :D

Wait... Wait?! 10 years?! Seriously, dude?!
Actually, we only need 2x24 hours to finish this game, but because I played this game when I was in junior high school and I was not really good enough in Role Playing Games (RPG), thus I was failed at that time, bored, and changed to another game.

Home: We're here only because we like staying here.
Many people hold the opinion that playing video games is just a waste of time, power, and mind; however I disagree with that point of view. In fact, video games really help me to improve my English skill, especially vocabulary and general grammar. With the help of my mighty English dictionary, I added English words to my little precious brain little by little in those good old days.

Furthermore, playing video games also train my brain logic to solve puzzles, quizzes, or problems. Video games which I really recommend for this are Final Fantasy the Series, Resident Evil, Alundra 2, Dino Crisis, and Midventure of Tron Boone.

In short, playing video games is very FUN! But we also have to balance our time for our family, friends, and works. Don't let video games become the player of our life!

Happy Second Anniversary to Me and GF

Happy Second Anniversary
Yesterday, on 11.08.11 is my second anniversary with my girlfriend. The collage above is the summary of events that we spent from the first year to the second year. Although we have separated for almost 1 year, but it turns out we have so much photos which I cannot put in that collage. Haha. We might have to reduce our activities in the third year. *just kidding*

Got Problems?! Just Shut Up and Smile!!

Shut Up and Smile
"Take a good look around. Does life really suck or are we just complaining?" - Bowling for Soup
It's almost two months since I have lived in Germany. In my daily life, there are some parts of activities which are very different from my life when I was in Bangkok and Jakarta. For instance is cooking!

I am not comfortable with cooking because I don't like to touch oily or sticky stuff when we usually have to handle in the process of cooking. Thus, I constantly wash my hands even I have not finished my foods.

Furthermore, I also have to do *daily* chores; which are: washing dishes, swept my room, and washing my clothes. Gosh! I am sick of those house duties! Those are the reason why when somebody asks for my conditions in here, I spontaneously answer them with "kidnap me to Jakarta", "I miss my home than ever" and so on.

But, I also realized that I still have to stay in Germany for more than 10 months. I cannot avoid those chores and run away from my responsibilities in here. Then, I understand that I cannot be like this anymore, grumble would not change anything!

I promise to myself to just "shut up and smile" in any condition that I have to face in Germany.
