Serial Jadul

May 30, 2011

MacGyver. Masih inget ga? Hohohooho,, cowok dengan segudang akal. Waktu ngetop-ngetopnya thu film, sampe pisau ala MacGyver jadi buruan.

Jadul? Ya emang siy,, tapi nyatanya film ini masih menarik buat ditonton.

Beberapa minggu lalu si Babe nemu channel TV lokal yang menayangkan MacGyver. Wah, bener-bener nostalgia. Sayangnya, teks terjemahannya ngaco parah. Sampe-sampe orang yang namanya Bill diterjemahin jadi tagihan. Itu waktu masih awal-awal, sekarang siy uda rada bener itu terjemahannya walo kadang telat nongol.

Jadi ceritanya si MacGyver ini ditayanginnya tiap hari kalo ga salah. Jam 7-8. Karena TV lokal, jadinya ga ada iklan komersial, yang ada iklan acara tayangan di TV itu. Hehe,, asik deh bisa liat aksinya Richard Dean Anderson ^^

Ada beberapa serial lama yang sebenernya pengen gw tonton lg.

  1. Knight Rider
  2. Viper
  3. Serial penyihir P3 *gw lupa judulnya 😀

Hehe,, begitulah kira-kira…

*postingan ini juga bisa dibaca di sini.


Wish List Movies

May 29, 2011

  1. Kung Fu Panda 2
  2. Pirates of the Caribbean 4
  3. Harry Potter part 2

Yah, itu wish list movies gw.

Sejak ada pengumuman kebijakan pajak yang baru, distributor film Hollywood jadi ogah menayangkan film-filmnya. Yah, pastinya para movie mania jadi kesel dan keputusan itu menuai banyak protes. Masalahnya, film lokal kita belum bisa bikin film yang bermutu [bagian ini opini gw dah]. Banyak banget film bergenre horror-hantu pake bumbu-bumbu semi porno. Hei!! Ga perlu lah nunjukin itu paha sama pdd [u know lah what pdd is :D]. Jujur aja siy gw jadi muak, uda males banget mau nontonnya.

Kalo gw orangnya emang ga terlalu maniak nonton film. Bukan movie geek. Emang ada beberapa film yang pengen banget gw tonton, cuma kayaknya ga tayang di bioskop karena terhalang kebijakan itu.

Apa sekarang gw harus beralih ikutan beli DVD bajakan ya?? Dari dulu ga pernah gw beli DVD film bajakan. Selain karena gw ga hobi, gw juga orangnya cepet bosen. Jadi mending nonton sekali di bioskop. Kalo toh kapan-kapan mau nonton lagi, mending pinjem aja di tempat persewaan. Beres.

Sekali pernah gw beli DVD bajakan karena gw pengen banget nonton film itu tapi ga tayang di bioskop di kota gw, dan ga ada yang download. Ada 2 DVD yang gw beli:

  1. Black Swan
  2. Burlesque

Dulu aja tukang dagang DVD bajakan digerebeg polisi. Emang udah sejak dulu siy tukang dagang DVD itu jadi favorit orang-orang yang hobi ngoleksi film tapi ga sanggup beli yang asli. Nah, sekarang karena ada kebijakan itu, jadinya gw yang dulunya ga pernah ikutan beli DVD bajakan jadi ikutan memburu film di tukang dagang itu. Menurut gw itu salah satu alternatif yang murah meriah dan paling gampang.

Jadi sekarang ini gw sedang menunggu-nunggu apakah wish list gw di atas bakal terpenuhi. Kalo ga tayang ya, dengan sangat terpaksa gw bakal beli bajakannya lagi.

Oh iya, kenapa gw mendadak nulis wish list movies ini? Karena gw mupeng banget. Tadi baca status salah satu temen kalo beliau lagi nonton Kung Fu Panda 2. Beruntunglah beliau yang stay di Singapura. Huhuhuhuhu…..

Anyway, kalo ada movie yang pengen gw tonton bakal gw tambahin ke wish list gw.

I bet we’re all realizes that cost of health is very expensive. The cost of seeing doctor one time could be for about 50 to hundred thousand, not including medicine.

Take example my friend, A. A goes to see doctor for headache cost her lots. Then she must take advance exam to the hospital for CTs cost her more. Let’s say she spent more than 500 thousand rupiahs.

Another example, B. She got toothache. She goes to see a dentist and spent about 250 thousand. She’s not cure yet, then she’s advice to see her usual dentist that cost her 700 hundred for two hours treatment.

As two examples above, and I have experience myself that I want to keep my healthy as good as I can. I do some common tricks.

  1. Eat breakfast before work, even if it’s just two spoons of rice. Keep my pattern of eating well-organized.
  2. Not drinking coffee when my stomach is empty. Two cups of coffee is enough for a day since I have maag.
  3. Drink enough water each day, prevent me from dehydration.
  4. Since I don’t like jogging, I find another or two ways keeping my body healthy.
  5. Take supplement if I need to.
  6. Not making my body too tired. Take a rest for a while to regain my stamina.

You might covered or join health insurance. But if you’re not, it’s much better to do a healthy life. You might have other tricks to keep you healthy. I’m so thankful that I rarely sick.

Last time I sick, I’m covered by insurance. But now, I haven’t any insurance on my side. I’m intended to join insurance personally, just in case.

So friends, let’s do the good thing for our health sake.

What will you choose??





My Latest Reading

May 26, 2011

I like reading so much. I’ve bought many novels once I’m in college.

About few months ago, when I still at my old office, I found a title that attract me. Makes me curious what the story is. The title is Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.

Since I’m so interested in vampire story, include Dracula story, I really want to read this Vampire Academy novel. Then, suddenly I made a decision to buy it. And as my guess, the story is amazing. It was only the first of the series is translated into Indonesian.

For about 3 months or so, I forgot that I ever buy that book. While I’m in Surabaya and go to the bookstore to buy new readings, I saw the 2 series had been released, book 2 and 3. From a sudden impulse, I bought those 2 series. Unfortunately, the first series is back in my home in Bekasi. But it didn’t lessen my affection to read the next two series. I found myself can’t stop reading them.

I read until the last page of book 3. It makes me so curious that I don’t want to wait for the next book. Then, I try to find the pdf file [sorry about this part, I have no intention to abuse your copyright Mrs. Mead]. My hunting has been a long journey surfing the Internet. Yet, I only got 4 pdf from 6 series. Still 2 series left. I start to read the pdf of book 4 as soon as I downloaded it. And when it’s over, I feel messy that I still can’t find the last two series. Oh God, I really want to read it.

The journey, I said journey because it is so interesting in finding these last two books, for book 5 is end at the midnight of day when finally I type the correct keywords. I try the same keywords for book 6, but still can’t find the good source.

It’s not that I don’t want to spend much money buying the books, but I still won’t give up searching. Yet, my back up plan is bought the original from one of online bookstore site. But it cost me too much if I have to buy two books. I compromise of just bought the last series. Once I decided and transfer the cost, not so long, I found the trusted source for pdf book6. Ahhh,,, it’s just like a game.

I really recommend these Vampire Academy series. Especially for you who like adventure stories.

Book 1 – Vampire Academy
Book 2 – Frostbite
Book 3 – Shadow Kiss
Book 4 – Blood Promise
Book 5 – Spirit Bound
Book 6 – Last Sacrifice

The stories began with explanation of two different kind of vampire. Good vampire called Moroi, and the bad one called Strigoi. And there is also Dhampirs.

The main characters of the story are best friends like sister, Vasilissa Dragomir and Rosemarie Hathaway. Richelle write the story from Rose POV. How the two best friends running from their school and after two years living as school’s fugitive, finally captured by school’s guardian. How those two girls have to pursue their education which is not so easy. Lissa is finding her specific ability, Rose is including the theory of how to protect Lissa and much more skill to fight the Strigoi.

This story isn’t kind of a lot of others. Rose POV is quite unique. Her anger, suspicion, and attempt to protect Lissa were a wonderful chain of plots.

Many plots came to this story. Not to mention love part, the conflict is interesting, provoke you for asking how could this happen? Rose journey to protect Lissa, dealing with her own problem, dragged to other problems. All are dangerous. But still, Rose Hathaway is a tough girl. The toughest girl of all. And she got a boyfriend who really badass. From start to the end, you will enjoy the surprise Richelle given to you. When you think it’s over, then it is not until you read the whole series.

So, enjoy the story.
