I wondering pluuusss have a big big question, what is the benefit of my country for paying my manager for the rest of his life in this National oil and gas company?? because in my point of view, that old man job description is just walk around from one room to another. And talking about nonsense, such as "what are you doing?" <--- he asks this in the morning "why do you keep on that project?"<--- he asks that in the afternoon and rewiiiiiiind for the next day. He always take a look at under your desk, wondering if there is build up documents and if there is, you have to clean it up. And he always nag on our breakfast (if we have it in the room)  "Never use bag plastic for your breakfast, don't put it on a paper, take a plate in the pantry, the coffee machine is run out the coffee...make a call to general support..bla..bla..bla..." OMG! what is wrong with that man! it's almost a year and I got sick when I saw him, I always stick on my ear phones on my ears. and every body feels the same. 

As I remember my ex manager never do that, he got more responsibilities to handle, I think so...

Eeerrghh....that guy is in front of me right now, feels like I wanna throw something on him! But I remember of my mom ( who really happy because I work here) and my daughters ( I don't wanna get fired). By the way,  I got my knee is aching because yesterday I had to replace someone for marking signs of transportation in another part of my company office building, can you believe that?! I'm an interior designer! I never playing on the street! I am too good to do that...(haha..no just kidding!!) I did WALKING, that around 2 km (thank God no high heeled) and almost midday (thank God no fasting), but I don't have the heart to let my friend did that alone.

My friend, who sits in front of my desk send me a massage on my YM just now, he asked me to make a pray for him, he had a plan to go abroad next year (it's about a couple months later) well, that is a good opportunity for him, he is young, and talented. Well, at least not like me, but just like I said before life is about choice, I have once took master in architecture after graduated from bachelor, but I never make it done because something happened on my pregnancy, and I had to take bed rest, and after gave a birth, I have so many complicated problems that make the story line of my life was not that perfect!

My parents kept supporting me to stand up and faced the reality, and also my siblings.. I feel so jealous see my brothers live and studied in Netherlands and Australia, and my sister live and study in Japan, they all always supported me, send me emails, give some calls to keep my spirit always on. I really thankful of that.

So I took Australia once as my destination of study, because Australia is not far enough from Indonesia, I can give a visit to my daughters oftenly, or my parents and my daughters can have a vacation there.  And then after my daughters are growing up, and more independent, I applied for a university there, I got acceptance letters from some qualified universities there, the tickets are on my hands plus I have my strong eagerness and all the supports from all. I am ready for a new adventure and scenario of life.

But then my dad passed on, it was hurting me so bad, it was not ruined everything, but I won't leave my mom ever...She is the only one I got. It's time for me to take care of her. I love my mom...I love her so much!

That is why I really really support my friend to make a better future... go around the world if you have a chance never wait till tomorrow, make your life like a story with a happily ever after ending, not a happily never after one.

Jika ada yang bilang ku lupa kau jangan kau dengar ..

Jika ada yang bilang ku tak setia jangan kau dengar ..

Banyak cinta yang datang mendekat ku menolak ..

Semua itu karena ku cinta kau ...

Jika ada yang bilang ku tak baik jangan kau dengar ..

Jika ada yang bilang ku berubah jangan kau dengar ..

Banyak cinta yang datang mendekat ku menolak ..

Semua itu karena ku cinta kau ..

I think the most of managers is stupid and this problem is common anywhere! Be successful

Hi Arlene..thanks for the comment, my sister live in Japan, my second brother who lives in Australia, yeah...but that is not all that simple Arlene...My mom loves Indonesia, she loves socialized, I can't imagine if she have to live abroad. But the case wouldn't be the same if my dad was here, he is more international and modern minded, he really good in English, and everything is always under control with him. He can takes care of my mom very well.

My mom once live in Japan with my sister but she always wanna go home, haha..because she can't stand the weather, and she always missed my daddy.

Firstly, I feel sorry for your dad, but don’t worry friend, I have a feeling that you will reach all your dreams. Why don’t you send your mom first to your sister in Australia and then you and your daughters can go after her as soon as you finished processing your requirements. You know what? Australia is also my plan to go to, hehe. My sisters are living there too; perhaps we can see each other there.  Who knows, right? Well we will just pray each other to reach our dreams. Cheers!
