Matt Corby - Resolution

I'm giving up, this whole lie is on me
Call it out like a family
Instead I bide my time, get a ride
Until the rubber leaves the road

You said don't lie so I made the truth
Seemed like a lie to even you
Control your fear, it's clear
That you did not know where you're going to

So don't you worry
You'll be my resolution
Characters of no illusion
You'll be my resolution

One month down and it's in sight
Oh I'm guaranteed to lose my mind
It's dangerous to speak and sigh
You might know what I'm trying to hide

So from the cradle to quarter age
Oh I bought the book but didn't flip the page
Oh readiness is near we steer
As far away from the coming of days

So don't you worry
You'll be my resolution
Characters of no illusion
You will be my resolution
Characters of no illusion
You'll be my resolution

Turn around put it down and see
That this is really the place to be
I'm not you, nor you me
But were both moving steady

The write your own story pen

Check out the new pen I got from Winters as a birthday present. It's obvious from this blog gesture how I appreciate the gift, so thank you to you. I'll try to write amazing stories with it. If I don't, at least I have my name on it. And for you readers, if you ever wonder about the writer behind the writings, just find the man with this pen. Chances are, if you notice someone scribbling on a notepad with this pen at a coffee shop or some random unthinkable place, you've seen me. Just remember to smile and say hi.
Unless of course if I decided to strike a deal with Parker and mass produce this Windchills Spring pen with additional fancy glamorous features for their newest collection so that people can get their very own Windchills Spring Parker pen at their favorite local store, which is at this moment very unlikely. Unless of course, if someone powerful from the higher levels of Parker management happens to read this and decide it's a good idea to contact me a.s.…

Ka Mate Haka

In anticipation for the 2011 Rugby World Cup Final match this coming Sunday, France against New Zealand, I'm tempted to put up the Ka Mate here in the blog. 

If you've ever seen a Haka performed by the All Blacks -the New Zealand rugby team, you'd probably think it's kinda barbaric somehow with all those gestures with the hands and feet, tongue sticking out, eyes piercing as if trying to eat out the hearts of their opposite number. You'd instinctively think that they're going to war, and that's also what I thought. Well in a way, yes.

iPhone won't restore!

This beginning of August 2011 will go down in history as the time when my iPhone 3GS has gone dead on me and refused to restore. I've been trying to resolve it for the past hour but have given up for the day. I'll be back tomorrow, with good news. I hope.
I'm back with a newly restored iPhone 3GS. Here's what happened:
I was trying to upgrade to iOS 4.3.5 when the iPhone just went dead and iTunes ended up suggesting to restore. Why exactly it went off like that I don't know and it still remains a mystery to me. At the time -like most of the time when troubles come your way, it matters little why and how it had happened, all that is important is how to resolve the problem, to get my iPhone up and running again. So I went on with the restoration process in iTunes.
It appeared that all was going well as it should when suddenly during the restoration, the process halted. I tried to restore again but having the same result: it stopped during the process. I searched …

Sting - Why should I cry for you?

Under the dog star sail
Over the reefs of moonshine
Under the skies of fall
North, north west, the stones of Faroe

Under the Arctic fire
Over the seas of silence
Hauling on frozen ropes
For all my days remaining
Would north be true?

All colors bleed to red
Asleep on the ocean's bed
Drifting in empty seas
For all my days remaining
Would north be true?

Why should I?
Why should I cry for you?

Dark angels follow me
Over a godless sea
Mountains of endless falling,
For all my days remaining,
What would be true?

Sometimes I see your face,
The stars seem to lose their place
Why must I think of you?
Why must I?
Why should I?

Why should I cry for you?
Why would you want me to?
What would it mean to say,
"I loved you in my fashion"?
What would be true?

Why should I?
Why should I cry for you?

Jakarta Weekenders: Monolog

It's that wonderful time of the week again, when everyone seems to have that extra eagerness to just hangout and chill immediately right after the bell rings at work. Yes people, it's Friday night. And Jakarta Weekenders was no different.

From the last time we got together a couple weeks back at the birthday party, last night was kinda the follow up meeting to the JakWeek idea, and Monolog Senayan was chosen as the rendezvous point. A place that somehow resembles a Melbourne-like lane way cafe which appropriately sets the mood for some private walk to memory lane.

For those of you who somehow kinda just know me in the surface would suggest that I'm not really good with memories. That's one of the reasons for this blog actually, besides of course as a showcase for all the beautiful pictures ^ ^ ...and umm to think it over again, last night wasn't really quite the follow up 'cause I missed out on last week's meet up to sing your heart out at the karaoke. Bu…

IIMS 2011: sustainable green technology?

The Indonesian International Motor Show this year boasts the go green theme as it sets to promote sustainable green technology. But really?

Very true if you mean sustainable "green" revenue stream. How is it not so if you set a target of 2.7 trillion rupiahs worth of transaction during the 10 days exhibition. A 200 billion rupiahs increase from last year's IIMS. Not bad, huh. But where's the green technology in the automotive industry which this year's theme brags about?
