camera bag


After getting few extras for my dslr, one thing left was the camera bag. Of course it's impossible for me to hand carry or hang the camera on my neck to wherever I go, so I need a decent bag to ease me plus keep the toy safe from knock/ scratch. But looking for it wasn't as easy as looking for an everyday handbag cos all of them were mostly black and looked like bento-bags.. I intended to buy something like my friend's at first but after check it on the store, it didn't suit my taste hehe.. :P




This one from Lowepro is called Passport Sling Bag and as soon as I saw it on the web, I immediately wanted to buy this. Reasons are it looks like a 'normal' bag and doesn't scream like, "Hellooo I'm hiding something expensive here.. Steal me!" like this one....


This one from Vanguard is better cos the cushion is thicker, lining is bright-colored, and has removable rain cover too. Sure better protection, but...... VERY BULKY, damn fat, plus I don't like the hand strap and the clasp.. Fugly.. :P

Unfortunately, the local stores here doesn't have Passport Sling Bag and I'm only left with a pile of square-shaped ones.. T_T

So, I picked this one..

Also from Vanguard, but it's more sleek and not as bulky as that one. The downside is it uses velcro for closure instead of zippers, but I think it doesn't matter as I will never flip my camera bag upside down (insane already mah?) Plus, it still looks like a normal messenger bag, doesn't it? :P

na na na louder


Mad happy! Over ecstatic!
Spent my money on a new toy yesterday and now I become very poor. Poor but happy cos it's like fulfilling a long-awaited dream!



I now own a dslr!!


Been wanting it since Dec 2008 walaoo... so long ago,when EOS 450D was still the newest model from EOS three digits line?? And now when I get mine, the 450D model is already discontinued by the manufacturer LOL~ Seems like I take forever to make a decision, to buy - not to buy - to buy - not to buy... it went like that till last April haha.. But I didn't get 450D of course, mine is the more handsome EOS 550D hehe..

Give you box picture only while I'm still trying to find a nice mirror to camwhore with it haha.. I bought it with 18-55mm kit lens from Sentradigital at IDR 7800K, but in fact I spent more than IDR 8500K for screen protector, air blower, a lenspen, UV filter, and an 8G SanDisk Ultra SDHC Card.. o_O

A big lump of money, but do I care??

Of course I do la.. Afterall, it's not a cheap toy leh, but everything it delivers are just paid off. Picture outcomes are awesome and VERY SHARP AND CLEAR AND JUST PRICKING INTO YOUR EYES!! Haha.. I know I sound lame to most advanced DSLR users, but hey.. I've just upgraded from a P&S camera so it's natural for me to boast about the picture quality, right?

Here I'm taking some novice shots haha..

Don't mind my picture compo, it still sucks haha.. and I still can't handle manual settings properly. Everything on the screen looks so confusing, but it's just a matter of time, isn't it?

I must learn and practice a lot. To every DSLR master, I beg your guidance.. :D

akhirnya :))


Setelah lima tahun kuliah kedokteran gigi, yang mana tiga tahun terakhirnya hampir setiap hari ngomel2, caci maki (dosen & pasien), tachycardia karena deg2an nungguin pasien ini dateng apa enggak, smokel bakal ketahuan apa enggak (hehe :P), masih ditambah dengan birokrasi kampus yang ancur2an, nasib terkatung-katung dan diping-pong ke sana kemari.. Akhirnya lo, saya bisa lulus dengan resmi juga..

IMG_1226

Perjalanan yang melelahkan, penuh dengan pengalaman traumatis ~lebay~ Eh, tapi beneran la, traumatis, soalnya saya disuruh ngulang ya ogah! Cukup sekali saja la.. Sekedar flashback ya, kalo taon2 awal kuliah sih asyik secara belum masuk klinik gitu.. Isinya cuman kuliah atau praktikum, kalo bosen ya langsung cabut.. Ke Galaxy Mall lah, ke Bu Kris lah, ke TP lah.. Gak ada beban pikiran, pun klinik semester 5-6 masih oke punya. Memang udah mulai cari pasien, tapi overall gak sampe jadi pikiran tiap hari..

Tapiiiiiiiii.... begitu masuk semester 7-8-9-10, maaakkkk... Nangis darah bok!!


Senin pagi: Mempersiapkan diri buat kerja pasien hari Senin.

Senin sore: Mikirin apa yang mau dikerjakan hari Selasa pagi.

Selasa sore: Mikirin besok harus kerja apa lagi.. kira2 keburu nggak ya... trus telpon pasien buat Rabu pagi. Kalo pasien bilang bisa dateng, oke. Kalo gak, duh...berarti bakalan nganggur lagi.

Dan begitu seterusnya sampai.....

Jumat pagi: Horeeee.. sudah Jumat. Kerjaan klinik buat hari Jumat terasa sedikit lebih enteng. Di otak sudah kebayang weekend mo jalan2 ke mana atau mau istirahat di rumah..

Sabtu pagi: Ayo bersenang-senang. Tampang masih ceria.

Sabtu sore: Ada yang masih ceria, ada yang sudah sumpek.

Minggu pagi: Tampang sumpek semua mikirin pasien buat Senin pagi hiks... T_T


Encore
Tiga minggu menjelang klinik berakhir: Matiiii peekkkk.... masih banyak yang belum dikerjakan. Duh keburu gak ya? Ini kok belum dikerjakan juga ya? Haduuuhhhh.... Tuhan Yesus, Bunda Maria... gimana ini??? *Doa Novena, Doa Rosario, segala macam doa dilakukan deh..*


Apalagi saya termasuk orang yang males jemput bola cari pasien hehe... :P Biasanya mengandalkan pegawai kantor orang tua atau pas dapet dari kamar terima (tapi jarang..) Kalo masih gak dapet juga, yah.. ngemis2 sama kakak kelas atau temen seangkatan yang kebetulan punya pasien lebih hahaha.. xD Gimana lagi, habisnya saya males disuruh keliling kampung siang bolong door-to-door kayak salesman nanyain, "Permisi Bu, saya dari FKG Unair lagi cari pasien buat bla bla bla bla.. Ibu mau dirawat gak??" tapi ujung2nya ditolak.. Kalaupun ada yang bilang oke dan mau diminta contact numbernya, tapi entar pas kita butuh dia datang ke klinik, ada aja alasan dia.. gak ada yang nganterin lah, gak ada yang jaga anaknya lah, malu lah giginya rusak semua.. grrrr!!!! Mundur lagi deh jadwal kerjanya.. sampe akhirnya gak sadar, klinik tinggal 2 bulan lagi, kerjaan belum mulai.. Panik deh! Eh, tapi masih mending begitu, daripada perawatan sudah terlanjur jalan sampe 50% lebih, trus si pasien mendadak gak balik... Disuruh dateng, gak dateng. Ditelpon, gak diangkat. Didatengin rumahnya, kosong! Yep, dia lenyap!! Kalo kejadian seperti itu, ya berdoa yang banyak saja ya, hahaha.. Gitu lho, masih ada dosen yang dengan sok ngatain, "Jadi, kalo kamu gagal, yang salah pasiennya?" Pwehhh.. Gaya amat lo dok, kayak gak pernah kuliah aja. Saya jadi inget ada satu teman yang pernah bilang, mending diputusin sama pacar daripada 'diputusin' sama pasien. Parah....

Makanya, waktu ada seorang bidan di klinik yang bilang, "Enak ya sekolah dokter gigi, kan santai, masih bisa dandan rapih rapih gitu kan?" saya langsung pengen nonjok dia. Santai pale lo?? Dandan rapi dari hongkong??

Bukan saya mau bilang kalo sekolah kedokteran gigi tuh paling susah....menderita.....penuh perjuangan.... Gak. Tiap bidang studi pasti ada tantangan masing-masing lah. Tapi jangan seenaknya ngomong dong. Mau nyante gimana wong setiap saat yang ada di pikiran itu pasien, pasien, dan pasien. Belum lagi kalo ada jadwal diskusi, tugas bikin paper karena gak bisa jawab waktu ditanyain.. Padahal kalo dah nyampe rumah, textbook jadi kayak barang najis. Jangankan baca, nyentuh aja malesss euy..
Trus dandan rapi ya?? Ya ada beberapa sih yang masih bisa tetep kelihatan cantik walaupun dah kerja seharian. Tapi kalo saya kok susah mempertahankan penampilan ya?? Secara lari ke sana ke mari nyari dosen minta acc pekerjaan, naik turun tangga, bolak-balik rute klinik-ruang rontgen, nggendong tas yang gendut karena bawa textbook buat diskusi kasus dan toolbox kayak orang mau minggat, nge-cup2 kubikel yang jumlahnya sangat terbatas, jalan ke parkiran yang jauhnya ajubilah di bawah sengatan matahari, antar jemput pasien (kalo pasien anak2) dari sekolah dia ke kampus, dibikin emosi sama pasien Pedo yang gak mau buka mulut dan malah mewek2 gak jelas di dental unit, anterin dia pulang ke rumah atau balik ke sekolahnya, eh.. begitu sampe di depan pintu kelas masih dimarahin gurunya, "Aduh Mbak, mbok ya Ida ini jangan dibawa terus-terusan, pelajarannya ketinggalan semua padahal anaknya nggak terlalu pinter. Emang perawatannya masih belum selesai tah? Masih lama tah, Mbak?"


Toeeennnggggggg.....segitu hecticnya, siapa yang peduli wajah jadi berminyak dan rambut kusut?? @_@ What a nightmare!!

Berita bagusnya, sekarang saya sudah terbangun hehe.. :P Jangan sampe deh ngalamin kayak gitu lagi. Memang saya pengen lanjut ambil spesialis, apalagi saya bosen juga kalo kerja doang gak sekolah dan gak bisa ketemu teman.. Tapi, toh kuliah spesialis pun kadang masih harus cari pasien juga meskipun gak sesulit jaman S1. Jadi, sementara ini masih pengen santai2 dulu, menikmati gelar baru, ngumpulin pengalaman dulu.. Enjoying life~


Cheers!

na na na


這幾天一直想著一件事.. 連吃飯時, 工作時, 睡覺時, 開車時都想著那件事.. 不是, 不是那個畢業事阿..

Hmm.. 我不會等太久啦!!

快快來阿~~ even though you make me so poor haha.. :P

我好想跟你玩兒~~

sorry :(

It's not that I want to be rude.. It's just that I can't explain it to you without being emo especially because you already have your judgement set in your head and the way you talk to me is kinda offensive. So I just cut it off, for simplicity's sake.. It's my choice and I don't like people interfere with my decision, I think you already know that.

I am sorry if I hurt you. I really am.

bridal shower 13.05.10


psstt.. Imil had posted this, but I also wanted to post one hehe.. :)





Last night was maddddd fun!!!!! I love I love I love! :D
Sixteen of us (minus Erlin & Luci) was having a mad dinner in Hare & Hatter to celebrate the upcoming five weddings in this year!!

bridal13

the gorgeous 2010 brides to be :)

bridal15

showing off their wedding month

I never heard of bridal shower before, so when Grace came up with this idea, I had to look up in Google. The actual party should be women-only but since this was only for fun and there were only few guy friends (dentistry field lacks of guys), they got invited too..

the bridal shower mc

MC

Choosing Prita as the 'program director' was no wrong, basically because she's born crazy so she always came up with crazy ideas haha. The game was a bit chaotic last night, thanks to Camel who kept interrupting, complaining, and protesting haha.. xD But it was reaaaalllyyyy fun!!

the loser group :P

the losers ;)

Losers must take punishment. Camel and Chater chose to do truth whilst Vitha dared to take the dare! And because Kurniawan was a good boyfriend, he must escort Vitha doing the challenge.

dare couple

He had to wear the veil as well HAHA... and together with Vitha, they made a wedding walk procession followed by us singing the wedding song from our table to one table of five strangers and announced them that they're gonna get married in 2011.. xD

harry me putri

with Harry & Putri, I teamed up with them last night

All pictures here are stolen from his facebook haha.. Tried his D5000 several times last night and it felt heavy with the flash mounted.. But this won't discourage me hehe :P

Early picture of us plus Harry (being the photographer). Prita & Ardi came later.

Congratulations all the brides to be.. I pray that God bless your new journey :D
Sure if I get married someday, I'll throw another party like this hehe. Major FUN, mates... I love you all ♥

random updates

Today feels so weird.. I made two mistakes on facebook. The first one, I sent a happy birthday message to a friend whose birthday was still on May 13. Then I congratulated a senior for having a baby son whilst the baby was still in the womb! My gawwddd... =.=

Anyway, I got a special request from Anne. Few days back we caught up on msn and we were talking about this post. She asked me to write more about our high school stories here.. So well, I went to look up for something on my diaries but I ended up giggling non-stop-ly reading story after story.. I didn't always remember interesting moments during that time so I often stopped reading just to memorize whether it really had happened or not.. And my dear girl, I know I promised you I'd write a lot but now I am really not sure since most all of stories are super embarrassing, tacky, scandalous, rebellious, and involves a lot of our puppy loves haha.. I almost felt ashamed I was like that during most of my high school year, but everyone in has their own embarrassing high school story, right?? *please nod head*

The graduation ceremony is coming closer!! It's on May 20 btw, but I don't feel as excited as normal students do. Heaven knows it takes a bloody looooooooooonnnnnnggggggggggg way to go and I'm tired of waiting already. I've had the kebaya custom made cos I can't wear any common-cut kebaya as my torso is long and straight and they make me look like a spring roll. I'm gonna do make up by myself and perhaps ask a mom's friend to help me with the hair. I don't book a photo studio to shoot a family portrait on my grad's day. Grace suggested me to bring along a photographer (like she did), but I don't think I'll do that. I think I'll just bring along my IXUS 200 IS and take a lot of pictures with my friends and my parents and then photoshop 'em later haha... Told you I'm not excited with the party, but I am very excited to be officially graduated as a dentist!! :P Mommy also starts nagging about my study plan but it's now only wait-and-see for me. I might have to go for plan B instead of plan A cos currently plan B is the most make-sense scenario for me (plan A needs huge amount of money and years to spend). Or, I can go for plan B while keep trying to work out my plan A. Confused?? Me too! Haha.

Choosing sucks, don't you think so?

eyeing a new toy again


Yessshhh.. wanting another new toy again hehe... :P But I won't talk about it till I get it on my hand. Who knows next two weeks I change my mind for the umph times? Haha. But no lah.. I'm quite sure this time I am sure about that (what's that??)..

I hope I can get it much sooner, but must be patient until June I think.. :D

horizon is the limit

Tanjung Benoa


I know life's possibility is limitless. And it drives me nuts.

new theme

I am changing my blog theme again! The old one was very boring and ridiculous with white, orange, and yellow hue.. This one is still simple and perhaps looks so boring to you as well, but at least the color suits my current liking :D


How do you like my new banner???

I am loooooving it to bits, hell I am loving my own picture hahaha.. xD Took that in mom's bedroom cos my room's lighting sucks.. Over 80+++ photos, only this one looks good and goes well with the design I've planned.. The rests are either cropped at the lower part or too dark or too ugly, major failure =.= .. Still, I need Photoshop to make it look more pleasing..
Overall, I think the picture and the banner design give more feminine and mature feeling to this page, don't you think so? I included some Chinese words cos I just felt they should be there, but didn't really know what to write so added the simple ones.. if you can suggest more philosophical sentences, of course I'd love to hear that hehe :D
