ocean of butterflies

I was searching on my computer, and i found this bunch of pictures i haven't uploaded for a long time. This was taken in last 2009. I helped my prof decorating a lobby of theater house with lots of butterfly made of colorful papers.

US Higher Education Fair 2011

Last wednesday, I went to an Education Fair held by US embassy, located in Hotel Kartika Candra. After finishing the so-called undergraduate school, I went to this event to look for chances of studying abroad, specifically in the US. Well, I've been looking around and asked if their school offered Masters degree in Art and design. Unfortunately, not all of them offer art  and design for Masteral and if they do, some of them don't offer a scholarship for, again, Masteral. It's so unfair that, us, artists are somehow being discriminated and forgotten. They only offer scholarships for those chemists, biologist, politics, et cetera. What i am trying to tell is that, artists are also brilliant, smart and bright, so give us scholarship too!

Well, on the bright side, going there and actually stealing brochures, pens and bottled water is actually fun. Thanks to my Partner in crime for taking and accompanying me all the way there.

I had quite a long discussion with this Troy University guy. My friend and i thought that his booth had the best logo design which made us come and asked for the brochures. (He took it off already in this picture) 
me: Hello, can i please have the brochure?
him: unfortunately, i cant.
me: huh? why?
him: Because i'm running out of brochures and tomorrow i still have to go to a school in Bandung.
me: that's too bad for me. (giving a puppy eyes)
him: if you want, you can go to airport because i have the whole box of brochures. The custom took it and won't let me get it.
me: huh?! how come? 
him: I have no idea, i have no problem in other countries, only in here. well, if you can get it for me, i'll give you a free t-shirt.
me: I don't want a free t-shirt. If i can get it for you, i want a free scholarship! (evil face)
him: -___________-"

That's why my Chinese friend called me a Chinese too, because I bargain or haggle like one (which i'm not). He didn't give me either a brochure or a scholarship, but he did give me a bookmark. 

Here's some brochures and pens i took home. I even took home fresh milk brochure.

Dog's Day out

Last Saturday morning, i got an invitation from a friend to attend his club gathering. I was really excited when i knew it was sort of like a dog lovers club. He knew that i am also a dog person. I was born and raised with at least a dog in my house, so how could i not be a dog person. We all know and love one of dog's famous characteristic which is loyal to its owner. For me, dog is not only a pet. It is also a friend who always be there for me in my best and worse. That kind of characteristic is a gift for all dog owner. 

The club i was invited to called Dog's day out Indonesia. The event was held in Kota Wisata Cibubur and all dog lovers are welcomed to join and bring their dogs. It was actually really fun to meet other people who have the same interest as me. Not only the people, their dogs are also incredibly awesome too. I had a really great time there as i brought my dog, cindy, with me. 
Cindy is a Japanese Spitz girl i bought when i was in the Philippines. I had no regret at all adopting and bringing her here to Jakarta. She's like best friend for me and another daughter to my parents. We all love her and she loves us too. We have a bit of problem, she seems quite protective and that makes her can't socialized with other dogs. She shows her teeth every time other dogs try to get close to her. Maybe that's what it's called insecurity, I'm not quite sure. Well we all have some attitude problem, but she seems having fun during Dog's day out.

Indonesia is a Muslim majority country and that is why not much people like to pet dogs. Most people prefer cats, rabbits, and fish. i was actually surprised by how many people who came to the Dog's day out last Saturday. It seems they have as much enthusiasms as me despite of their religion. I'm glad that Indonesians nowadays are more open minded than before.

So here's some picture i got from Dog's day out Facebook. Funny story, i was ready with my camera when i was on my way to Kota Wisata. But when i clicked my camera, i realized that i have a camera without a memory card on it. what a waste!

Cindy and me

Can u spot which among these people who's holding a doll dog instead of a real dog in this picture?
