Don’t trust your dream

…like I never do, except for last night.

It was an unusual sunny day in Copenhagen, last Saturday. I went to second hand shop “loppemarked” in Frederiksberg in the morning and felt drained and exhausted. Stuffing my new owned clothes and cosmetics, I cyckled to my part time job together with my friend. And we decided to have BBQ at Island Brygge after finishing my work. It was such an enjoyable day, but we ended the day almost dried of over heating. Then… I got the dream.

The news caught me by surprised. Here, in the 21st century world of lies, deceits, false hope and promiscuity exist a living fairy tale story of a man named Ethan Renoe.

Ha!

When I read this post from one of my friend’s facebook, I was sceptical and just about to enjoyed the shirtless scene of an american jogging in a damp weather. All what girls really want to see. It turned out to be something amuzing.

Budget-Waldhotel Unspunnen, Switzerland

The next country to visit after France was Switzerland. It was a last minute change of a plan hence one day only. What a shame!

We took a train from Gare De Lyon train station as early as 7AM. Thank God that the train station was close to our hotel and that we had been in and out and around that train station. We arrived at Interlaken Ost train station around lunch time. We decided to put my huge bag in the lugage deposit in the station an bring my sister bag to the hotel. It was a wise decision since it was hilly and a bit work out walking from the train station to the hotel.

5 cm

with 3 comments

It all started on New Year’s Eve. I was writing my blog,  Vallaura Awards. I was shocked to know that I did not read a lot of books in 2011. So much for a person who claim to be a bookworm. So, I got some gears and started reading again. 5 cm was the first book I finished in this 2012.

It’s an Indonesian book and I borrowed it from my friend. I found the book not really have that wow factor but it was not a disappointment as well. It was about 5 friends who like to hang around until they decided to have 3-month break of seeing each other. And after the 3-month period they set a time to meet and go for Mahameru trip (Mahameru is a name of the tallest mountain in Java, Indonesia). The Mahameru trip was described interestingly vivid. So, it was a good part of the book. But that’s all.

The writer also spiced up with his thoughts through out the pages, as if he was reading with us. Some of the spices, I admit, keep us going for the sake of curiosity. while the 5 cm philosophy, it’s a bout dreaming. In essence, if you have a dream, hang it 5 cm before your forehead, so you will always see it and determine to pursue that dream until you make it happen. A good one.

Here I quote original writing from the book, it’s in Bahasa Indonesia (but have similar meaning with what I’ve told you before). Read the rest of this entry »
