Semarang Open 2014 Freestyle Slalom Skating Competition

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic. It takes sweat, determination, and hard work. – Colin Powell

I’m back! finaleeeeh … 😀

Life has been hectic the past few weeks.

So .. let’s talk about my competition 3 weeks ago. I took a part to national competition called Semarang Open 2014. This is an annual event, and this year is the second year that the freestyle slalom competition was held in Semarang. Time goes by way too fast; I still remember last year competition with my team, just like it was yesterday.

The day before competition there was a workshop with the guest star, Yu Jin Seong and Terence Cheung. They are top skater from Korea and Singapore. Here the video … check this out!

Every time I come back to freestyle slalom competition, I enjoy it more and more. I think part of the reason, is because I know what to expect. A couple of things were different this year, or at least seemed like they were.

Even though we went through some difficult times, we will work our hardest for this competition because we know we can do it and we will. I was up at 5 am Saturday morning; excited but I also had nervous butterflies. After 2 month in full on training mode, I’m ready for the competition. I don’t know how many times during a workout I have felt like I was going to barf, pass out, or DIE. But I did not. I kept going. 😀

I felt nervous. Semarang Open 2014 was a national competition. At this competition, I got nervous, breathing hard, my stomach churning, not being able to eat, and feeling like I had to pee every time I had a chance to cool down. Continue reading

Things that Made Me Happy this Week

Hey everyone!

Can you believe it’s nearly April already?

Seems like it was only a while ago that I wrote my gratitude on the blog. Then, I finally stopped doing it in public and decided to count my everyday blessings in private.
I believe that there is always something be thankful for.

So, this is my list:

♡ Happy loooooong weekend! I was happy that the break was finally upon me, so I took advantage of it, and well … took a break and spent the Saturday night relaxing with my boy friend and my family.

♡ Last Sunday was one of the days I was in the house all day. Take a nap. I consider this a rather productive activity; it recharges your energy level, so you can be ready for the next chapter of your life. I also made some dishes and blogging in the night. Continue reading

SAMBA 2014

What’s up with me lately?!

Last Saturday I have some spare time. So I decided to attend SAMBA “Sambut Brazil” 2014 at the mall in my city. This event was held by FIFASTRA from 22 February until 24 February 2014 to celebrate World Cup 2014 in Brazil this year.
There are dance competition, kids fashion show, games, music and dance performance, and special guest star. The guest star is Bambang Pamungkas, he is a famous football player in Indonesia. He will give a coaching clinic. Well, I’m not a soccer fan, not interested too much to the guest star or the soccer things.

So I decided to participate in the game in the second day. I choose ‘Holding the Giant Ball’ game. In Bahasa that’s mean Game Pegang Bola. The prize money is one million rupiah (it’s about $100). That’s worth!

Let me tell you, the rules for the games are quite difficult. All the participants had to hold the giant ball with their hands plus pinning the soccer ball between their legs. The craziest part is we must stand for 9 hours! Continue reading

Laporan Tahunan Blog Saya – 2013 in review

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Target to Achieve: Balance My Life !

Halo all, I’m back after a  break from logging into my blog. I have been pretty busy with my final project. uuuhh

Seems like i am constantly in search of some way to make my life matter. Hooosh hoooosh hooosh! Mencoba menyeimbangkan waktu yang cuma 24 jam agar pas untuk semua hal dalam sehari rasanya susah sekali. Saya sampai detik ini sering kali merasa belum bisa bersikap adil untuk semuanya. Untuk saya sendiri, untuk keluarga, untuk pacar, untuk skripsi, untuk sahabat, untuk teman-teman, untuk kegiatan inline saya di Inline Skate Semarang dsb. Kamu pernah merasa seperti itu juga gag? Errrrrrr

Bagaimanapun juga waktu gag akan nambah jadi 25 jam dalam sehari kalo saya ngeluh. Saya gag boleh berhenti bergerak, karena setidaknya jika saya terus bergerak maka saya akan memastikan bahwa saya sedang tidak menganggur. Menganggur akan membuat saya merasa bersalah telah menyia-nyiakan hari yang telah diberikan kepada saya. Namun begitu saya juga harus tahu kapan harus berhenti sejenak untuk bernafas dari semua rutinitas saya. Ya kan? Continue reading
