One of the Greatest Food Ever Invented: Cinnamon Rolls

Greatest food ever invented. Cinnamon Rolls!!!! oh my Gosh look at the texture of the icing on top. the delicious pastry with the mouthwatering cinnamon powder mixed with sugar... Take a bite and you're in heaven ^0^

I bought this one for a couple of days ago in Pan An (I'm not sure whether or not I spell it right). Actually this is not the real Cinnamon Rolls. I mean, I'm pretty sure they use different ingredients for the bun because the price is very cheap, about Rp.9k. Here in my place where I live, sadly, there isn't a single Cinnamon Rolls store left. T.T when I was younger, there are 'Cinnabon' and 'Cinzeo'. But they close the place I don't know maybe the taste of Cinnamon Rolls doesn't work for Indonesian taste buds. yes, I'm pissed. Anyways, this one tastes pretty close to the real one so I post it here. To those who haven't tried this, go on and take a bite. I assure you this is the taste of pure bliss. it's heaven on earth =9

Movie Review: Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (2011)

At last! a movie with non-stop action that really has a good plot in 2011 alongside X-Men First Class! I'm not a fan of this franchise, but this one is really good. Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is a thrilling fast-paced movie that makes the audience WOWed every time Tom Cruise and his team did some actions. Ghost Protocol is without doubt the best installment of the Mission Impossible franchise by far. the actions are nothing like we have seen before. Prepare to be WOWed by the stunts. but then again, you know how this kind of movie usually is. some of the things they did can't really happen in the real life. they were exaggerating. but the movie still looks awesome, it's like those stunts can really happen in the real life. that's what makes the movie worth your every penny. Brad Bird did a really great job for his debut on his first live action movie. I'm a huge fan of him as the director of Pixar's Ratatouille and The Incredibles, he made a huge success on that. With this movie, I believe he has a bright future ahead of him in the Hollywood. Maybe he can be the director of the next James Bond film? i'm so looking forward to that.

Usually, I don't really like the way Tom Cruise acted in a movie (I can't explain why because I really don't know why) but in this one, I didn't notice. I don't know maybe it's because of the movie is really intriguing. In fact, he looks pretty badass. Jeremy Renner looks damn cool too. Just like when he was in The Town.

In conclusion, Ghost Protocol is the best installment of the Mission Impossible franchise. It's worth your every penny I assure you. and even though Tom Cruise gets old, he still looks pretty badass. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Movie Review: Thor (2011)

yeaaaah the Mighty Thor! Superheroes rule hollywood this year I just realized. first the X-men, Captain America, and Thor from Marvel. and then there was The Green Lantern from DC Comics. Do filmmakers run out of ideas? I mean, they just go and make a movie adapted from a novel or comic book these days. Then I look at the review, most of them turn out pretty good and to be honest it bothers me. the only film which deserves a high rating is X-Men First Class. I have to admit they made it almost without a scratch. and most of the movie critics agree with me. what bothers me is, Captain America did earn a pretty good rating. I mean come on. I've never read the comics before and I can see that the movie itself is very disappointing. I don't know whether they make it intentionally (aimed at children), all I know is that movie could be made better than it turned out to be.

For me personally Thor is way better than Captain America. But still it's not as good as Iron Man. but one thing for sure, I'm looking forward to see them together in The Avengers cause the trailer looks promising. anyways, Hawk Eye appeared as a cameo in the movie and I reaaallyy can't wait to see him in The Avengers. 

Overall, Thor is great. but if you compare this movie with , say, Iron Man or X-men, well I have to say they are still way beyond. But Thor is not that disappointing. I like the scene when they barged in to Jotunheim and start to pick up a fight with Jotunheim race. Wow Thor and his comrades are simply. awesome. no kidding. especially Thor!!! that's why I want to see more fighting scenes from him! he fought without fear and he sure got style =p This movie is about "the Mighty Thor" right? why wouldn't they add a couple more actions I'm sure the audience won't mind. That's the thing I hate about this movie. They should add some more actions into the movie, that way, the audience can really see how mighty Thor is. right?

When the credit rolled, I was entirely shocked by the director's name written there. OMG is it really  him? Kenneth Branagh? I don't know I just can't accept the fact that he is a director. the face that I want to punch so badly in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secret is actually the director of Thor??? hahaha that's just really shocking. for those who don't know, he's prof Gilderoy Lockhart in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secret. now you see why I wanna punch his face right? anyway, it's not like I hate him or anything. I was just shocked that's all.

As for the visual effects.. well, I can't say that it's bad. with technologies these days, everything seems to get easier and they managed to create the realm.

the chemistry between Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman really worked. they look cute together although they only met in a short period of time. Chris Hemsworth is perfect as Thor. He got the brave, reckless, innocent, arrogant, wise and mighty look on his appearance. 

In conclusion, Thor is definitely better than Captain America and The Green Lantern but the movie doesn't look like it's 'mighty' enough compare to X-Men and Iron Man.

Odin: Thor Odinson... you have betrayed the express command of your king. Through your arrogance and stupidity, you've opened these peaceful realms and innocent lives to the horror and desolation of war! You are unworthy of these realms, you're unworthy of your title, you are unworthy... of the love of those you have betrayed! I now take from you your power! In the name of my father and his father before me, I, Odin Allfather, cast you out!

Hail Procrastination!

Godddd I don't know what's gotten into me lately! I seemed to be very laaaazy doing my assignments! how could this happened?! I mean, obviously, I love my work. (or do I?) I'm not so sure anymore. It's like I have this kind of look on my face every single day. the I-don't-wanna-live-in-this-planet-anymore look. the kill-me-now look. the 0mg-I'm-so-bored-I-can't-stand-another-day look. the touch-me-I'll-bite look, whatever. all of my grades are on its way down (just checked my slim and like oh my gosh there goes my grades) and I'm not so sure where did I go wrong. I mean. it's not like, I didn't do it wholeheartedly. well I don't know for sure because these days I got A LOT on my mind. There are a lot of things that needs to be done. there's just too much to think of right now and I'm sure my mind's gonna explode from the intensity of it. I need a mood booster or something. ANYTHING!! I desperately need help. anybody! *shouting*

ok well.. enough drama. haha that's clearly the things I don't wanna talk about right now. as you can see, the title of my post is Hail Procrastination, which means today I continued to do it and I realized I became pretty good at it. the day before yesterday I kept telling myself. "okay this night Ima do my assignments". but then something happened and then I told myself to do it the day after. and then the day after, which is yesterday, all of sudden my dad told me that he wanted to watch movies. cmon I'm bad at this. when it comes to movies, I just can't refuse, you know. that's just something too impossible to do. and so I watched Memento. and then today!!! I was really positive that I would finish my assignment today. but then! I just remembered that I've been watching these two tv series called Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle, and today's the day they released the all new episode! how can I refuse? and so... there goes my assignments.. all hail procrastination!!!

okay btw. I wrote this post yesterday and when I was about to publish post, the wifi connection was turned off so I post it today. aaaand today is Saturday which means I gotta go watch movie in the cinema xD Warrior or The Green Lantern? have a great Saturday everyoneeee!!! =D enjoy it while you still can =p

I Can't Live Without Music =)

okay I just got the idea to write some of the epic songs I've ever listened to.. hahaha. I really CAN'T, CANNOT *emphasize* live. without. music. Music is the most wonderful thing people can have in this miserable life. Songs allow us to know that we're not alone. I mean the lyrics. The song makers often tell us a story about their perspective on life. and sometimes, there are some songs that describe our feelings precisely. That overwhelming feeling you got when you heard that song was like. wow. I'm not alone =')

And I love to play instruments as well.. I love my guitar. and I love to sing. and sometimes I play piano, though I have to admit my music skill is very poor, and so is my singing skill. but it manage to wash away my loneliness or my bad mood when I played a song.

Sooo I'm gonna share some songs I recently played on my iTunes over and over again, and I literally can't live without them. no kidding. I found myself smile for no reason when I heard one of these songs =) these 12 songs are all I can think of right now. I'm sure there are more, I'll post it next time.

1. Anywhere But Here - Safetysuit

Is this a natural feeling
Or is it just me bleeding
All my thoughts and dreams
In hope that you will be with me or
Is this a moment to remember
Or just a cold day in December?
I wonder
If maybe
Maybe I could be
All you ever dreamed, Cause you are
You're beautiful inside
You're so lovely and I
Can't see why I'd do anything without you, you are
And when I'm not with you, I know that it's true
That I'd rather be anywhere but here without you

2. What If - Safetysuit

What if it makes you sad at me
And what if it makes you laugh now but you cry as you fall asleep
And what if it takes your breath and you can't hardly breathe
And what if it makes the last sound be the very best sound

What if what I want makes you sad at me
And is it all my fault or can I fix it please
Cause you know that I'm always all for you
Cause you know that I'm always all for you

3. All We Are - One Republic

Every single day that I can breathe, you change my philosophy
I'm never gonna let you pass me by
So don't say your goodbyes you know its better that way
We won't break, we won't die
It's just a moment of change

4. For the First Time - The Script

Oh these times are hard,
Yeah they're making us crazy
Don't give up on me baby

5. Nothing - The Script

And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over the town
I'm swearing if I go there now
I can change her mind turn it all around

And I know that I'm drunk but I’ll say the words
And she'll listen this time even though they’re slurred
Dialed her number and confessed to her
I'm still in love but all I heard
Was nothing

6. Trading Yesterday - Shattered

Who I am from the start
Take me home to my heart
Let me go and I will run
I will not be silenced
All this time spent in vain
Wasted years, wasted gain
All is lost, hope remains
And this war's not over

there's a light, there's the sun
Taking all the shattered ones
To the place we belong
And his love will conquer all

Yesterday I died
Tomorrow's bleeding
Fall into your sunlight

7. The Script - Science and Faith

You won't find faith or hope down a telescope
You won't find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything down to chemicals
But you can't explain a love like our

8. One Republic - Good Life

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life 

9. Anberlin - Fin

We're not questioning God.
Just those he chose to carry on His cross.
We're no better, you'll see.
Just all of us, the lost causes.

Aren't we all to you just lost causes?
Are we all to you lost?
Lost causes

10. Saosin - You're Not Alone

You're not alone
There is more to this, I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell

11. Tokio Hotel - Don't Jump

I scream into the night for you
Don't make it true
Don't jump
The lights will not guide you through
They're deceiving you
Don't jump
Don't let memories go
Of me and you
The world is down there out of view
Please don't jump
Don't jump

I don't know how long
I can hold you so strong
I don't know how long

Just take my hand
Give it a chance
Don't jump

12. My Chemical Romance - Disenchanted

If I'm so wrong
(So wrong, so wrong)
How can you listen all night long?
(Night long, night long)
How will it matter after I'm gone?
Because you never learned a goddamned thing

You're just a sad song with nothing to say
About a lifelong wait for a hospital stay
And if you think that I'm wrong
This never meant nothing to you

<3 <3 <3

Movie Review: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

Drink up me hearties yo ho! Finally I get to watch this movie. This tax problem going on is really frustrating I've missed WAYYYY TOO MANY movies.. esp. summer movies. grrrr
anyways. Ima write a review about the adventure of Capn Jack Sparrow in the Fountain of Youth.

soooooo... I don't know why they decided to make another Pirates of the Caribbean movie.. I mean.. the three previous films are great as a trilogy. I thought At World's End was the conclusion of the epic journey of Capn Jack Sparrow.. Now they make another one.. I didn't think that that's a good idea.. without Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley? and. Without Gore Verbinski?!?!? cmon, what makes you guys think that this'll work? I mean.. It's PotC!! They need Verbinski, he's the best. Please don't screw it up.. At first, that was the way I was thinking.. please don't ruin the trilogy, don't ruin my fav character etc..

Turns out that, the movie is not that bad and not that good either. the good thing is, at least they succeed in creating the pirate atmosphere. without Keira and Orlando, they still can make the adventure of Capn Jack Sparrow quite interesting. The setting as well. and I enjoyed the movie until the very end. I didn't feel the urge to get out of the cinema, and I managed to stay awake. and the other thing I love from this movie is the Mermaids! wow they're simply. beautiful. first they looked like a bunch of fallen angels, and at once, they looked like a vampire sea creatures. I mean. They succeeded in capturing the beauty yet vicious sea creatures. Astrid Berges-Frisbey, I'm a fan! Pic of her:

No matter how good they build the atmosphere, still, Verbinski's PotC is a hell of a lot more better than Marshall's. And the screenplay as well. I miss the witty Jack and Barbossa! I mean, the whole pirate's negotiation just don't work anymore. I didn't say that there were none, well, there are 'some' witty convos, but there are not as many and as witty as the three previous films.

As for Johnny Depp, well, I don't have to doubt him. He still got it. of course. haha and Geoffrey Rush as well. I like him as Barbossa. He's just the right actor to play that character. and I love Barbossa! he's just as crazy as Sparrow but unfortunately, not as witty =p I love to see them both side by side, but, well. they never stick together for long. one minute they're cool, the next they want to snap each other's neck. that's the interesting part of them, though, I have to say. haha

About the score soundtrack, I have to say I expect more from Hans Zimmer, but this one's not bad. He can build the mood. The thing I like about him is, he always keeps the movie alive, no matter what genre the movie is. I'm a big fan of him, he's a genius!

In conclusion, I think this movie is entertaining. I had a laugh, I didn't fall asleep, but still it's not as good as the three previous films. the storyline, the screenplay, the direction, the visual effects.. all hail Gore Verbinski!

Barbossa: [to Jack about how he lost the battle against Blackbeard] Taken, not lost. We were off the coast of Hispanola when we came under attack. No provocation nor warning or offer of parley. We were peppered with cannon fire. And then the sea beneath the Pearl began to roil. The Pearl was pitching and yawing so violently and every rail and spar all at once began to creak-the rigging had come to life! Our own ship turned against us. Tangling the crew, wrapping them like snakes... and wrapping around my leg! But my arms were free and my sword was still in my hand. I am the master of my ship, not Blackbeard. I am the master of my fate, not Blackbeard! So I did what needed done... I survived

Movie Review: Centurion (2010)

hahaha Centurion! can you guess who's in it?? yeah that's right. Michael Fassbender! Again. LOL. Yesterday I felt the urge to watch one of his movies, and I thought of Centurion. Since I got the dvd and I haven't watched it yet, so... I watched it!!!

I think I don't have to brag about how good he is in the movie. I mean he's Michael Fassbender, need I say more? there's this thing about him that makes the character seemed to be very charismatic and charming. I don't know, is it just me? or.. haha the thing is, when he played a role, he really sank into the depth of his character. I just thought that that's the most important thing an actor should do in a movie.

As for the movies. well, the story itself is a bit flat I think.. they're just a bunch of soldiers and survivors from an ambush, running for their lives and hunted by their enemy. they just wanted to go home, but they can't do that because their enemy is hunting them like predators hunt their preys. their enemy is a ruthless tribe, a really sadistic one. they gave no mercy for the Romans. it's some kind of something The Romans did in the past that makes them hate the Romans so much.

I can't stand the bloody violence that filled the entire movie. haha. really. it's like the blood comes splattered from the screen and I can taste the blood myself. Well, for me personally, I don't like barbaric action movies as such, so... this movie isn't one of my favorite movie. and as I've mentioned earlier, the story isn't so good as well.

 "In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, piss and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet" -Centurion-

Sleepy, but I have class in an hour

okay I'm sooooo sleepy. I'm on campus now and I got nothing to do! omg is this real? mid test is going on and here I am, sitting in front of my laptop, blogging? HAHA tell you this, this is one of the advantage if you took art major on univ. in mid test like this I usually just make my assignments at home and then I just come to campus and submit it. done. you don't have to study any theories or memorizing all those shits about design as well. well, actually it depends on the lecturer, but mostly they just gave us some work to do and we did it as homework. but still. that doesn't change the fact that sometimes, being in an art major is a bit frustrating. you have to open your mind all the time, looking for ideas, fresh ones, etc etc. and sometimes you even need to stay up late to work on those works so that you can get it done on time. well I enjoyed most of the time i'm doing my assignments so, usually I just cope with it...
okay anyways, since I got nothing to do, I think I'll write a review about a movie I watched yesterday ;)

Movie Review: Jane Eyre (2011)

This is a little review of Jane Eyre, the film I just watched for the last couple of days.
So, this is an adaptation from the famous literature fiction novel written by Charlotte Bronte.
This film is perfectly cast with Mia Wasikowska as Jane Eyre and Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester. This movie is directed by Cary Fukunaga.


The first scene captures Jane Eyre all on her own, wandering through the hills, depressed and looked like she's in need of shelter because she runs away from something. The plot itself is flashback. So, the watchers don't quite know what's actually going on in the first scene. And then the next scene tells us about Jane's life as a child. She's abused by her cousins in a bad way. All she's doing is always wrong in her aunt's eyes. At the age of 10 she's finally sent to a school owned by Mr. Brockwurst. He's been told by Jane's aunt that Jane is a troubled young girl and that she's deceitful. Her life in school is not so pleasant either. They love to punish their students physically when they did something wrong. Then at the age of 18, Jane got a job as a governess in Thornfield Hall, a place where she's going to meet the love of her life.

Here's the thing. I've always adored Michael Fassbender ever since I watched X-Men First Class. He's just. Magnificent and gorgeous (not to mention his sexy british accent =p) When he played this character, he looked so charismatic and devastatingly handsome. He depicted Mr. Rochester perfectly. Enough said (I need to compose myself before I fill this entire blog just to talk about how gorgeous he is =p)
Mia Wasikowska isn't so bad either. She managed to capture the plain and intelligent Jane Eyre with just the right spices.
The other thing I love from this movie is the setting. Fukunaga succeeded in capturing the amazingly beautiful England's landscape and castle, and we can all feel the gloomy and dark feelings in the story as well.
In conclusion, This movie is one great romantic movie with just the right spices =)

"Do you think because I'm poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless? I have as much soul as you, and full as much heart. And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you..." -Jane Eyre-

SHIT Happens for a Reason

Had. A. SHITTY. Day. OMG how could this happen to me?! T.T 

On my previous post, I did mention about Liberal Arts. Well, it's kind of related with what I just went through today. 

So here's the situation, I've planned to attend a fashion workshop by Elle magazine at my univ today on April 8th. And there's this styling contest that I wanted to participate SOOOOO BADLY. You're free to mix and match many kinds of clothes with one of your friend (each group consist of two people). And so, I asked a friend of mine who has the same passion and interest in fashion as mine whether she would join me. And she said YES! I was ALL EXCITED about it! I finally take part in a competition! And omg how I LOVE FASHION! So I started filling out the form last week, began to mix and matching some clothes on  with her. 

Here's our work. Theme : Be sexy and Spirited with Your Blazer

We were sooo thrilled! We considered the name of our group and we finally came up with an idea, 'Head Over Heels'. Actually we thought about some names like FABULOUS, EDGY, SPOTLIGHT, CHIC, NOIR ET BLANC, etc etc. hahaha it was a lot of FUN! We were so excited back then. We prepared everything, and then we emailed our work, and waited for the result. Couple of days later we received an email that has the subject "CONGRATULATION!"!!!! we were like, WHAAATTT?!? We squealed like crazy! We didn't see it coming! We're actually one of the contestants!

And then... Here's what happened. The day after, I got informed by my group in Character Development class that we will do our service learning project on the exact same day as the styling contest. APRIL 8th ...... 

How great was that? I've prepared for everything, I want this SO FREAKIN BAD, it's a big deal for me and suddenly KAPUT! My dream shattered just like that.. It's like someone just kicked me to the ground and I don't have the will to get up at all. Plus, the fact that many other people didn't get the chance to take part in the competition seems to sadden me even more. It means that me and my friend are one of the chosen ones T.T fyi they selected 16 people.

The thing is, this service learning project is for my Character Development final exam. So basically there's no way out of it. There's nothing I can do about it. Maybe it's the matter of priority. I finally chose to go with them. My friends were sorry about this and I told them it's fine. Well actually I was aching inside. Well, it's not anyone's fault. I got no one to blame. It's just bad timing that's all.

Actually the service learning thing doesn't have to be done today, but we couldn't find any other day more suitable because we got deadlines that we had trouble arranging our schedule.  

So that's it. That's why I hate Liberal Arts so bad. Every time I wanna do something, they always come in my way. Well, shit happens for a reason. Or so I thought.. or so I hope.. whatever.

I just hope that Elle Magz would come again someday to my univ and make another styling contest anytime soon that would be great =)

My life as a Graphic Designer Wannabe Part 1

I took art major in univ because art is my passion. I really love art, all kinds of art, name it, paintings, sculptures, handicrafts, drawings, photography, etc etc.. The thing is, I always thought I'm pretty good at drawing, you know.. I got an A in drawing in the first semester, I love to draw, and in my spare time I usually did some drawings back then when I was still in high school. It turns out I was wrong. Now, that the classes I took are starting to get more serious, I found myself having a difficult time in drawing. I was like, "omg how to draw this, how to do that" and so on. I'm the kind of person that, when I love to do something and then failed in it, I'll hate myself. I don't know, it's like.. come on, this is what you love doing.. why do you fail?? Am I not good enough? those questions kept on swirling on my mind which is starting to get on my nerves. and that's why these days had been hard for me =(

Another thing that bothers my mind, body and soul is, there's this thing with my univ that really PISS ME OFF. My univ requires all the students in every major to take Liberal Arts. I mean, what the heck?!? I took this major because I want to focus on THIS major. It's high school all over again!!! Back in high school, I tried to endure all those pressures, frustrating moments that I have to take the major I'm not really into (science). And now? I have to deal with it all over again? What's the point in going to univ then? kill me instead!! I'm tired of all this.. I know, maybe some of the lectures are important for our lives, the real world is a cruel place to live, you need to know this and that, whatever, but please.... it's too much!! I just want to draw, I just want to paint, I just want to make as many artworks as I can.. what's so wrong about that? My sleeping time is less than 5 hours everyday.. I have trouble hanging out on weekends, and you CAN'T IMAGINE how huge is the pressure in Visual Communication Design class. There are A LOT OF requirements (I'll try to list it next time). One of them is Ideas. Ideas are really hard to find, and in order to find it, you must spend a lot of time just to think about it, you know.. If you want a BRILLIANT one. Well, Liberal arts classes are starting to get FRUSTRATING. I'd rather spend my time looking for ideas, or doing hundred pages of drawing in order to improve my drawing skill than spend my precious time doing things I don't even know what is it for. Because of this liberal arts thingy too, when I got home, I felt tired physically and mentally so I usually just do things to refresh my mind instead of doing my assignments... *sigh*

Okay that's a little peek about my life as an 'art' student.. I'll post another next time (did you guys notice the 'part 1'? =) ). gotta go do my assignments, hoammmmmm -__________-  TTFN x

Yellow World!

Hi, I'm Cindy! FINALLY I wrote my own blog after a few friends encouraged me to do it! Okay first of all, I wanted to apologize if my english is mediocre. Well yeah I know I'm not really good in english, but I'm willing to try to write all my blogs in english! The thing is, I'm an Indonesian (half chinese you could say), but I love english! I don't like Indonesian language. and believe me, I tried to, but I just don't like it! Anyways, this is my first blog and my first post ever!! I just wanted to say hello to the world! xD I'll keep posting when I'm not busy.. I got tons of assignment!! Well FYI, I'm a graphic designer wannabe, so I took art major in univ and everyday is a busy day for me *sigh* hahaha

well, enjoy reading my posts! =)))
