After all these years, there’s still just this part of me where if there’s even the slightest chance something I do could make Robin smile - I don’t even think about it, I just do it. I mean, If I could make that locket magically appear, I would! I would open a vein in my arm if I could bleed that locket out just to make her happy..
“Oh come on it’s not fair. If you told Barney that you needed him, he’d be here in a heartbeat.”
“I didn’t have to tell you. And you’re here. You don’t even know why.”
A revolutionary new traffic system without traffic lights
It’s sad because ‘shared space’ concept won’t work in Indonesia. Movement negotiation between road users is almost not exist. Especially with the local public city transport drivers. Watching this and witnessing the real examples in Europe make me sad. I might strive hard to become a great urban designer, but to change our people’s behavior? What do I do? What can we do?

Postcard from Barcelona (part 2)
Di lokasi foto terakhir saya sempat tertegun sebentar karena merasa seperti sedang berada di Komplek Keraton/Taman Sari, Yogyakarta. Ternyata peninggalan kekuasaan kerajaan islam di Spanyol masih terasa. Pengaruh arsitektur islam dianggap inovasi tersendiri pada masanya, contohnya penggunaan batu (lupa namanya) sebagai penutup permukaan berfungsi untuk menjaga kesejukan lingkungan. Teralis digunakan utamanya untuk menahan sinar matahari. Kalau disesuaikan jaman sekarang, mungkin berguna untuk penghalang maling juga ya.. Dan tentunya cat dinding warna putih.
Suatu hari saya akan kembali lagi ke Barcelona. I haven’t seen much of Europe. To my surprise, Paris is not my favorite - you know how almost every girl in the world must be dreamed of going to Paris because in the back of their head, they think it would be pretty and romantic and blah blah blah.
Barcelona definitely is (beside London of course).
Postcard from Barcelona (part 1)
Notice the last four pictures are from Sagrada Familia. Construction details. This is what I like about physics in building (though I had a hard time understanding it - also, I’m not a fan of numbers). The last picture is a hanging model of Sagrada Familia. Not only a hanging model, wait for it, it’s an inverted-hanging-model.
Can you imagine how everyone involves in this project feeling? Working on a cross-century project. Wow.
hah! boong banget ini pasti aaa
Sometimes I wish I can cook. I mean, really cook.
But then again, kebayang ribetnya, males sama dapurnya, males nyuci-nyucinya, males motong-motongnya. Ya males…
Dateng-dateng ngomong begini: “Laper, Lex, belum makan.”
Me: “Aduh lagi nggak ada makanan, aku telepon delivery aja, ya? Kamu mau makan apa?”
Reaksinya: “Kamu nggak masak, ya?”
Me: (doeenggg! gimana jawabnya?) “Engg… aku kan nggak bisa masak. Selalu makan di luar.”
Gue: (langkah penyelamatan diri) “Tapi di kulkas ada telur sama nugget sih. Mau aku dadarin telur+goreng nugget?”
Dia makan dengan lahap diakhiri dengan ucapan: “Makasih ya, enak.”
Dalam hati gue: “cinta beneran berarti orang ini sama gue hehehe.
