“Love is like your best friend that you don’t see a lot. You know they’re always there but they’re just hard to get hold of. And when you do finally find them, it’s just great and you want to hug them and never let them go.”—Cassie, Skins (via tilty)
“If I’ve learned anything in life, it is that sometimes things get in your path and you have a choice: you can either smash right into them, or you can adjust and move around, but you have to do one or the other in order to move forward.”—Gossip Girl (via raindropsonredroses)
“Change. It’s a wonderful thing. Look, you know how subatomic particles don’t obey physical laws? They act according to chance, chaos, coincidence. They run into each other in the middle of the universe somewhere and bang! Energy! We’re the same as that. That’s the great thing about the universe: unpredictable. That’s why it’s so much fun.”—Tony; Skins (Sid: 1.5) (via thishouseisacircus)
“Cassie: Do you know what hurts most about a broken heart? Not being able to remember how you felt before… try and keep that feeling, because… if it goes… you’ll never get it back.
Chris: What happens then?
Cassie: You lay waste to the world… and everything in it.”—Skins (via dontbreakthisheart)
“I’m actually very traditional when it comes to love. I think that - when I decide I want to get married - I have to be one getting down on one knee. Unlike some, I do attach value to this thing called marriage.”—
Q: (Joonas Partanen – Iltalehti) Kimi, it has been almost a year and a half since you last won, so did the champagne taste better on the podium compared to those times you were second and third, and then another question: some people have suggested that you won’t cut your hair until you have won again, so are you going to cut it now? KR: No, it’s nothing to do with that. There’s always speculation in Formula One and b****t as we know. It doesn’t change anything. It’s the same stuff. When you’re first or second or third, it makes no difference what is in the bottle, but of course the feeling is nicer overall. It’s good for the team and good for me, so in that way it’s nice.
Poppy:ah Freddie Kingsley. Nice to see you, when I’m not delirious or half naked.
Freddie:Don’t speak too soon. And is it wrong for me to say that I’m just a teeny bit disappointed? Come on, Trouble. Let’s hit the road
Poppy:Hey, I thought maybe we could take a romantic stroll around the school grounds.
Freddie:*laughs* and get caught? Are you out of your mind? Call me old-fashioned but I actually do quite like living
Freddie:*laughs* I thought you said you could drive
Poppy:It’s not my fault your stupid car doesn’t work
Freddie:have ever thought of changing gears?
Poppy:that’s the car’s job!
Freddie:turn right here. We drive on the left in this country
(sitting, just chatting)
Poppy:and so I threw the whole lot over the cliff. My dad went mental, as Drippy would say. Drippy says I was crazy but Kate said she would done the exactly the same in my position. Sorry, chattering away like this. Feel free to shut me up.
Freddie:well, remind me never to get to your bad side. But the thing is, I’m pretty sure that you don’t have one.
Freddie:Here you go, Trouble.
Poppy:Bread and fries, that’s my treat?
Freddie:If I affect your life in no other way, then allow me to do this honour, the humble chip butty. Here we go.
Poppy:kind of gross, but I like it. You know, this is one of the best dates I …
*Freddie kisses poppy*
Poppy:The best date I’ve ever had.
Freddie:There’s something about you, Poppy Moore. Every moment I’m with you, I catch my breath.
Poppy:Okay, leading lady, all boys’ school, awkward with intimacy. Cards on the table, are u gay?
Freddie:*laughs* err, Just English. And I'm sober and sensible, and you, my sweet friend, are overexcited and concussed. I go back to school tomorrow, but Ill be back on the 18th. How about I see you then?
Freddie:I'll make a deal. No more head-fry behaviour. I sense it might be your forte.
Poppy:I won't fry your head if you don’t poach my heart
Freddie:Deal *kissing her-well, nearly
(Charlotte clears throat)
Freddie:Crap. Tweedledum and Tweedledee
Charlotte:Fraternizing with the girls, Freddie Kingsley, as you are well aware, is not allowed.
Sleeping In on a Rainy Day – As the rain beats lightly against the window, you nestle your head deeper into your pillow. The sound is soothing and your bed feels like a sanctuary. There is no place you would rather be.
Finding Money You Didn’t Know You Had – You reach into your pocket and find a $20 bill from the last time you wore these jeans. You aren’t rich, but you are richer than you were a second earlier.
Making Brief Eye Contact with Someone of the Opposite Sex – You pass her on the street or in the subway. She glances up at you momentarily, making direct eye contact in a way that seems to communicate a subtle curiosity. For a split second it makes you think… and then it’s gone.
Skinny Dipping – There is something mysteriously liberating about being naked in a body of water. You are naked, but it feels natural, a sense of unrefined freedom.
Receiving a Real Letter or Package via Snail Mail – E-mail has become the primary source of written communication. Most snail mail these days is junk mail. When you check the mail and find a real letter or package from someone you know, excitement overtakes you as you tear into this rare gift.
Making the Yellow Light - It’s one of the most common simple pleasures, the act of beating the pack. As you blaze through the yellow light you glance in your rearview to see all the cars behind you stopping at the red light. Yes! You made it!
Telling a Funny or Interesting, True Story - One of the most enticing roles you lead in life is that of the storyteller. You love to share stories, especially those that will captivate your audience with deep curiosity and humor. There are few things more satisfying than telling a true story that others enjoy listening to.
Seeing a Friend Stumble Over Himself – As you walk across the street with your friend, he fails to accurately address the curb on the other side. He trips and stumbles around momentarily before regaining his footing, then swiftly attempts to play it off like nothing happened. This can be a hilarious sight if the moment is right.
Hearing the Right Song at the Right Moment - It doesn’t matter what the setting is, hearing the right song for that moment is one of those simple pleasures in life that instantly lifts your spirits. You could be driving home from work, hanging out at a bar with friends, or jogging. When the right song rattles your ear drums the entire meaning of life seems crystal clear.
The First Sip of a Beverage When You’re Thirsty – You just finished mowing the lawn or taking a long jog. The only thing on your mind is an ice-cold glass of water. When you are really, really thirsty, that first sip of any liquid beverage is sheer bliss.
Catching a Glimpse of Bare Skin on the Opposite Sex – For guys, it’s when the waitress bends over a little too far. For girls it’s seeing that buff guy in a Speedo. Either way, when you see a bit more skin than you were expecting on the opposite sex, you can’t help but to smirk on the inside.
Saying the Same Thing Simultaneously – There is a moment of silence. Then all of the sudden you and your friend blurt out the same exact set of words simultaneously. This rare occurrence is something to smile about.
The Pull-Through Parking Spot – You pull into a parking spot and are delighted to see the availability of the parking spot immediately in front of you. You pull through to the spot in front so that when you return to the car you can drive forward out of the parking spot. Why? Because driving backwards is a pain in the butt.
Realizing You Have More Time to Sleep – Something abruptly awakens you and you think it’s time to get up. Then you squint over at your alarm clock and realize you still have 2 more hours to sleep. A warm euphoric feeling shoots though your body as you glide gracefully back to your dreams.
People Watching – Sitting there on your bench you can see people in every direction. Tall people, small people, thin and plump. Blond, brunette, and redhead alike. Each of them has a different stride and a unique expression. As you drift from body to body you are mesmerized by what you see.
Putting On Clothes Straight from the Dryer – As soon as the dryer buzzes, you pull out your clothes and put them on. They feel soothingly warm on your skin and emit a fresh-scented aroma into the air. A sentiment of ease comes over you as you head out to conquer the day.
A Familiar Smell – You just pulled into your parent’s driveway and opened the car door. You haven’t been home in a long while. You smell familiarity in the air, the scent of a large pine tree in the neighbor’s yard. As you head through the front door, more familiar smells consume your senses. Gosh, it feels good to be home…
The Feeling You Get When Your Idea Works – You have been struggling to resolve a complex problem all day and you just can’t seem to get it right. Filled with frustration, you decide to exercise one last idea before calling it a night. You’ve had many ideas before that failed miserably… but this time it works.
Fresh, Clean Bed Sheets – You yank at the corner of the bedspread to create just enough space to slide your body under the freshly cleaned sheets. The sheets feel cool to the touch. Everything seems so clean, like nobody has ever slept in this bed before.
A Beautiful View – As the car veers around the side of the mountain you gaze out the passenger window. It’s a clear, sunny day and you can see the entire valley below filled with wild flowers and bright green vegetation. The scenery reminds you of something you once saw in National Geographic. But here it is live, right before your eyes.
Reminiscing About Old Times with Your Closest Friends – Pink Floyd once said “the memories of a man in his old age are the deeds of a man in his prime”. There is no simple pleasure more satisfying than recounting the greatest moments of your life with your closest friends who lived these moments alongside you.
Receiving an Unexpected Compliment – It’s been an average day. Nothing really great has happened, but nothing terrible occurred either. This monotonous day has put you in a dreary mood. Unexpectedly, an older, attractive lady taps you on the shoulder, calls you “handsome” and says she loves your shirt. The day just got a whole lot better.
Having a Good Laugh – Laughter is the greatest cure of all. Life is extraordinary in the moments when you are laughing so hard you can barely breathe. These moments of deep laughter are divine in the sense that they cleanse your mood and set your mind on a positive track.
The Feeling After a Healthy Workout - It’s a giddy feeling of self accomplishment; the one true activity that actually makes you feel better and look better simultaneously. When you walk out the front door of the gym you are on top of the world.
The Celebration in the Instant Something Makes Sense – Even now that it has explained to you for the third time, you just don’t understand how it works. Everyone else seems to understand but you. Then out of the blue the dots connect in your mind. You finally get it, and it feels great!
Relaxing Outdoors on a Sunny Day – As you relax sprawled out in a lawn chair, the sun warms your skin and a light breeze keeps the temperature comfortable. Birds are chirping merrily in the trees behind you. You are at complete peace with the environment.
Holding Hands with Someone You Love – Every time she grabs your hand you are overcome with an awareness of how much she means to you. Holding hands is sensual and physically intimate, yet subtle. There are few people you allow to hold your hand, so when it happens you can be sure that the moment is special.
Playing in the Water – Water marvels people of all ages. From jumping in puddles as a child, to doing cannon balls in the pool as an adolescent, to enjoying a cocktail in the Jacuzzi as an adult… water is enjoyable.
Making Someone Smile – You notice that your colleague has been under a great deal of stress with meeting a deadline, so you take it upon yourself to complete one of her indirect responsibilities for her. As soon as she realizes what you did, she comes into your office with a big smile on her face. “Thank you”, she says. You just hit two birds with one stone, because making her smile just made your day.
Finishing What You Started – You just finished up a big project you’ve been working on for the last few months, or maybe you just finished your first marathon… Either way, you finalized what you set out to accomplish. The feeling of self accomplishment you get when you finish what you started is by far one of the most rewarding simple pleasures life has to offer.

Suatu pagi di Bandar Lampung, kami menjemput seseorang di bandara. Orang itu sudah tua, kisaran 60 tahun.
Si bapak adalah pengusaha asal singapura, dengan logat bicara gaya melayu, english, (atau singlish) beliau menceritakan pengalaman2 hidupnya kepada kami yang masih muda. Mulai dari pengalaman bisnis, spiritual, keluarga, bahkan percintaan hehehe..
“Your country is so rich!”
Ah biasa banget kan denger kata2 begitu. Tapi tunggu dulu..
“Indonesia doesn’t need the world, but the world needs Indonesia” “Everything can be found here in Indonesia, u don’t need the world” “Mudah saja, Indonesia paru2 dunia. Tebang saja hutan di Kalimantan, dunia pasti kiamat. Dunia yang butuh Indonesia !”
”SINGAPORE IS NOTHING.WE CANT BE RICH WITHOUT INDONESIA . 500.000 orang Indonesia berlibur ke Singapura setiap bulan. Bisa terbayang uang yang masuk ke kami, apartemen2 dan condo terbaru kami yang membeli pun orang2 indonesia, ga peduli harga yang selangit, laku keras. Lihatlah rumah sakit kami, orang Indonesia semua yang berobat.”
“Kalian tahu bagaimana kalapnya pemerintah kami ketika asap hutan Indonesia masuk? Ya, benar2 panik. sangat terasa, we are nothing.” “Kalian ga tau kan klo Agustus kemarin dunia krisis beras. Termasuk di Singapura dan Malaysia, kalian di Indonesia dengan mudah dapat beras”
“Lihatlah negara kalian, air bersih dimana2.. lihatlah negara kami, air bersih pun kami beli dari malaysia. Saya pernah ke Kalimantan, bahkan pasir pun mengandung permata. Terlihat glitter kalo ada matahari bersinar. Petani disana menjual Rp3000/kg ke sebuah pabrik China. Dan si pabrik menjualnya kembali seharga Rp 30.000/kg. Saya melihatnya sendiri”
“Kalian sadar tidak klo negara2 lain selalu takut meng-embargo Indonesia?! Ya, karena negara kalian memiliki segalanya. Mereka takut kalau kalian menjadi mandiri, makanya tidak di embargo. Harusnya KALIANLAH YANG MENG-EMBARGO DIRI KALIAN SENDIRI. Belilah dari petani2 kita sendiri, belilah tekstil garmen dari pabrik2 sendiri. Tak perlu kalian impor klo bisa produksi sendiri.”
“Jika kalian bisa mandiri, bisa MENG-EMBARGO DIRI SENDIRI, Indonesia will rule the world..”
NAH SADAR GA LO SINGAPORE THAT YOU ARE NOTHING?kalo mau ngejek negara orang liat2 dulu negara lo kaya gimana.indonesia gede meeeen,budaya melimpah,singapur kecil tiny miny looks like my shitty
If time was still The sun would never, never find us We could light up The sky tonight I would see the world through your eyes Leave it all behind
If it’s you and me forever If it’s you and me right now That’d be alright Be alright If we chase the stars to lose our shadow Peter Pan and Wendy turned out fine So won’t you fly with me
Oh yeah Gotta fly with me now
Now the past Has come alive And given meaning And a reason To give all I can To believe once again
If it’s you and me forever If it’s you and me right now That’d be alright Be alright [ Jonas Brothers Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ] If we chase the stars to lose our shadow Peter Pan and Wendy turned out fine So won’t you fly with me
Maybe you were just afraid Knowing you were miles away From the place where you needed to be And that’s right here with me
If it’s you and me forever You and me right now I’d be alright If we chase the stars to lose our shadow Peter Pan and Wendy turned out fine So won’t you fly with me
If it’s you and me forever If it’s you and me right now I’d be alright Be alright If we chase the stars to lose our shadow Peter Pan and Wendy turned out fine So won’t you fly Fly Fly With me
