Oh my god. This is something that can decrease my mood. The only thing I really hate from Jakarta is the TRAFFIC JAM.

BOY dad Alfie Patten yesterday admitted he does not know how much nappies cost — but said: “I think it’s a lot.”
Baby-faced Alfie, who is 13 but looks more like eight, became a father four days ago when his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman gave birth to 7lb 3oz Maisie Roxanne.
Wohoo, this couldn't be right. I was so curious so I clicked on the link and realized that NO WONDER THIS WAS THE PREGNANCY THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD. The dad was 13, and the mom was 15. Whoaa, what a strange ages! And you should see his face, he was an innocent looking boy and the worst part was, he looked more like an 8-year-old boy. Imagine an 8 year-old-boy was holding a baby. No, it wasn't his newborn sister, it was HIS DAUGHTER! Oh gosh. And the news itself were widely published. Were their parents proud of their kids? Oh my god, if I were them, I would be so ashamed and banned the stories from public. Dang. There were lots of articles about them all over the net. How famous were they? Ckckckckckck.
OK, 13 years old father, and 15 years old mother. Have you guys ever thought about your life? What would your youth days be when you had a baby at a very young age? Imagine this, your friends were preparing for the disco party while you took care of the baby on your own. Your friends were spending their money for fashionable clothes while you spent your money for crib, diapers and hospital fees. Geez, those were nightmares! Beside that, giving birth to a baby is very painful. Hiii. OK, so I pledge this:
I DON'T WANT TO HAVE A BABY YET!
I'm 16 and I don't want to have a baby yet! Having baby takes a lot of responsibilities. Having a baby=Being a mom. And being a mom at 16? Geez, you must have been joking. Have you ever thought about your future? And the presence of a baby of your own will ruin all of your grown-ups' plans. So why having a baby, when you are still young and still want to enjoy the precious moments in life?
PS: Another youth pregnancy article. This one is even more troublesome. They are having twins at the age of 15. For the full story, click here.
See, think twice before you decided to have a baby!

Yaaay! I'm back after weeks of abstinence from my oh-so-beloved blog! Yihuuu after the whole deeds about Jakarta In Global and so on. OK, first I want to talk about Jakarta In Global! The whole deeds about Jakarta In Global are finally finisheeeed! Yaaaayyyy finally I can sleep at 9 pm and go home at 3 pm from school. Well, it isn't fully finished actually because the winners haven't received their prize money yet because the national gas company haven't transferred the money yet. And did I mention that Prof. Arif Rahman, (a famous Labschool and educational figure who served as the head of UNESCO in Indonesia) praised this year's Jakarta In Global because he really loved the theme 'Save Our Culture'. Thank God. Oh don't forget the certificate for the judge who did a very good job (for those who thought that we were cheating because the winners were mostly from Labsky, think twice! We had qualified judges from Wall Street and FIB UI!). And I have to make activity report too. But, those things are easy-peasy for me. The best thing is it was already over, just it. Huaaaa I'm free, at last!

On Thursday, I attended TOEFL social club in Wall Street. It was such a good social club and I got bunch of informations about TOEFL test and how to make you practice the most important aspects in TOEFL. I won't spoil those tricks to you guys (hahahahaha call me smug, but I'm certainly not. I'm just making a strategy. You can't always share secrets to everybody right?)
- TOEFL score > 600
- Report card score >=70
- International Faculty of Medicine University of Indonesia/Monash University
- Faculty of Dentistry University of Indonesia.
- Jakarta In Global (JIG) is going to be held next week peopleeeee! Yaaaay wish me a happy-go-lucky day!
- Is there anyone who would like to swap their saturday daily pass java jazz festival 2009 ticket with friday daily pass? Contact me ASAP
- Study hard, there are lots of exams coming
- Study hard for TOEFL and English stuffs
- Write two fan mails, one for JONAS BROTHERS and the other one is for ZAC EFRON. I'm going to do it with my friend so we can pay together for the postage stamp. So call us freaks, but that's just the way we roll (That's Just The Way We Roll-Jonas Brothers)
- Useful link: www.bagborroworsteal.com. It was mentioned on Sex and The City. A very useful link for those women out there who want to look stylish with affordable price. If I lived in USA, I would definitely use that link so much!
- Favorite song at the moment: Lady Marmalade (Moulin Rouge version), I Got Nerve (Hannah Montana), and Broken Strings (James Morrison feat. Nelly Furtado)
- Valentine's coming and I definitely don't care
- I've just read my friend's graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi titled 'Chicken with Plums' (Indonesian version) and it is actually very good, although it contains some mature contents. I'd love to buy the English version of Persepolis and Embroideries.
- JONAS BROTHERS' PERFORMANCE ON THE GRAMMY WITH STEVIE WONDER WAS SUPERB!!! I just can't stop to watch the video. Nicholas Jerry Jonas rocks! Can't get my eyes off that video. Huhu. Two thumbs up for Jonas Brothers!!!!

Let's talk about yesterday first. Yesterday I played bowling with my friends at Superlane Bowling in Pasaraya. It was such a fun because I know I'm very crap on bowling, but I think yesterday was my lucky day. I had gutter for the first two rounds, but after that I had splits (or spares? I already forget about bowling vocabs, so basically I knocked off all the pins on the second roll). And finally I came up as the third winner. Hooraaay! Hahaha. Credit photo: Dreamstime. com
OK, so I went to Pondok Indah Mall to attend my auntie's birthday, actually it wasn't a birthday party, sort of some birthday treat. But, I wasn't be able to receive the treats because I already planned to attend the Social Club at Wall Street and then headed into the Complementary Class at 2 pm. So I had to pay my food's bill with my own pocket money. The social club itself was a lot of fun because it was basically about environmental vocabularies such as deserts, icebergs, and swamps (actually it was the title of the social club itself) and there were many new words came up into my brain. And then at the complementary class, we had an australian teacher, which is great, because I found Australian accent as one of the hardest English accents to understand. And we had a great fun there because I could learn more about grammar by doing fun activities. Hahahaha and guess what, Wall Street opened the chat corner about TOEFL and IELTS, just like my needs! Hahaha that was why I went directly to the SO to book for the activity, because I knew it would be full if I didn't book it first. The chat corner will be held on Thursday though. Hahaha I used the word 'though' a lot because yesterday I had social club with the same Australian teacher and she liked to use the word 'though'. And today she was the teacher for the complementary class. What an Aussie day!
Well as you remember, I've got a new munchie again. And it is the same product though. But different taste and different brand, for sure. I like this one better than J.Cool, but of course this one is a little bit more expensive than J.Cool and the size is rather small than J.Cool. But it's OK, because they have wide selection of toppings. And I like the place though, because it is filled with pink and strawberry background, so sweeeett! It is a Fro-Yo called Heavenly Blush. I tried it for the first time yesterday and today my auntie bought me another cup. Too bad it is located on PIM 2, so I have to walk a little further to take a sup. My favorite is Twist Fro-Yo (Pomegranate flavor and original flavor) with Strawberry/Peach/M&M toppings. Hmmm, delicious. Check them out on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Heavenly-Blush-Energy-Yogurt-Bar/53535867805
Well right now I'm more into my MacBook because it is so damn faster than my computer. And the DVD player is better than my computer because it can read the damaged or scratched DVD. But unfortunately I can't find a way to resize a photo for blogger's blog post. And beside that I have been using my MacBook for less than 1 year, so I still have so much time to learn more about that. By the way, my paper work for Year 12 is about Mac OS X Leopard and Windows Vista. So I'd better learn about that quickly to make a good paper work. In my opinion, Mac OS X Leopard is better, faster, and stronger (for virus). Hahaha it's Daftpunk's song by the way. Harder, better, faster, stronger. But I can't find anything harder from Mac OS X Leopard compared to Windows Vista. Hihi
By the way I'm doing my Biology homework. And I think I'd better post that here too to warn you about the danger of smoking. Check these out:
Healthy lung (left) and unhealthy lung (right) because of smoking. That's terrible, isn't it?
This picture is taken from Oprah on Dr Oz's segment. I really like Dr Oz's segment. He taught us much about our body and health without making us feel dumb about our body or health. He also has a good communication skills, which is very essential for the doctor. He really make me want to be a doctor (a dentist, specifically). He also has published national bestseller book about health. For god's sake, Dr Oz's is very smart and a perfect role model for the doctor-wannabe! Here is the description about the pictures:
So, please quit smoking for your own goods! It's getting late already, so I'd better be off, Tomorrow I'm going to have my second encounter and Civics exam. Wish me luck guys! Finger crossed. TTFN.
If you're trying to quit smoking, this could be the day you go cold turkey. The healthy lung (left) is generally pinkish and healthy, with a bit of damage from living in an urban area. The unhealthy lung (middle) comes from a smoker, and is riddled with dark tar from cigarettes. What's even more worrisome than tar, according to Dr. Oz, is cancer. A cancerous lung (right) will have nodules of cancer cells that grow and spread, invading into everything around them.(Oprah.com)
Xoxo Denita. You know you love me
(Euuuuuhhhh some kind of Gossip Girl wannabes. Hahaha I'm slightly desperate for the upcoming episodes of Gossip Girl. The last episodes that I've watched was Episode 13. Huuuu sooo saaad)

Huaaawhhh I really envy my friend who won a ticket to meet her idol Valentino Rossi a.k.a The Doctor, the champion of MotoGP, on Monday. Huuuuuuuu I really want to meet my idol toooo. OK, so I've made up a bunch of names that I'd like to meet someday. Here we go:

I have just finished my piano lesson today, and as usual, my teacher, I called him Kak Yudha asked me to discuss few topics out of the piano lesson. First he asked me about my school's events, Sky Battle and Sky Avenue (coming soon!). And then we discussed about the upcoming event called Java Jazz Festival 2009, which was going to be held on March 6,7,8. The point was, he was included on the show's lineup, with his band. But, if Indra Lesmana's band wasn't be able to play, then neither was his band. And I told my failure from getting Jason Mraz's ticket. I already got the daily pass ticket, as regards that I still could buy Jason Mraz's until Feburary 2009. So I still had time to collect my pocket money to buy Jason Mraz's. But....right after I bought the ticket, I found out that the tickets were already sold out. Few days later, I ascertained that Jason Mraz's show would be held TWO days, because of high demand and the Friday show tickets were sold out (Jason Mraz was scheduled to play on Friday). Duuuuuhh I already bought the Friday daily pass and if I bought the Saturday daily pass, it was already too late because the Student Price promo was already closed and my saving were not adequate either. So I had to splurge more than 500 thousand rupiahs to watch Jason Mraz, and my friend only splurged about 350 thousand rupiahs. Huuuuuuuu ;(. OK, I still could watch New York Voices, Afgan, Elfa's, David Garfield or Alex Ligertwood, Prasanna, and other jazz musicians indeed.

- I'm very busy with all the Jakarta In Global 2009's thingy. It is going to be held on February 20-22, 2009. The technical meeting is due next week, so we have to work utterly fast. Come on, I can work this out. Hahahaha wish me luck guys, finger crossed!
- I'm very ambitious and passionate about my future. I want to be serious and 100% focus on my school subjects and English course. My grades are waaaaay too low last semester so I have to work really hard for the recurring semester. I also want to work out on my English, especially my vocabs and grammar. Those are very essentials yet crucial for the TOEFL test. That's why my schedule for the week is very full because I'm having school lesson course and English course. But it's for my future, so I'll take it. Remember London, remember Harvard! Aaaaargghhh :)
- My appetite is turning very disorganized. I usually have dinner at 8/9. I know it is not healthy, but I'm too lazy to take my meals and sometimes I've got a lot of things to do. And sometimes I don't have lunch either.
- My MacBook is turning into my personal dictionary. There is an application called Dictionary and all I have to do is type some difficult words and voila! the results appear on the screen as fast as a bolt. Woaahaaaa. It is faster than finding the words using the conventional way a.k.a using the big and dense Oxford dictionary. Duuuh!
- I've just starting my own new blog. The old blogs are sort of crap and also embarrassing. So, this is my newest and active blog account. Enjoy! FYI, I named it tittle-tattle-chit-chat because I love to do the chit-chat and gossip! Tittle-tattle means gossip. And flibbertigibbet means a silly or talkative person. Yes, I am. And I'm proud of being a flibbertigibbet. Hohoho :)
This is Jakarta In Global 2009's publication poster. It has 8 competitions for high school students, such as Speech, Spelling, Story Telling, Debating, News Casting, Short Movie, Presentation and Smart Quiz. It is going to be held on February 20-22. The registration still open until February 13, 2009. Technical meeting is going to be held on February 14, 2009 (a.k.a Valentine's Day, btw, who cares? duh). Sooo, register immediately. Contact me via my gmail if you need any further information, ok?

I've got a new munchie and right now I'm very craving for it. It's called J.Cool, a 100% fat free frozen yoghurt from J.Co. It's not that expensive, or cheap if you can say so. It only costs 15 thousand rupiahs, single size with one topping. And the taste is veryyyyy scrumptious! And it is very easy to get because I'm going to visit their outlet in PIM (Pondok Indah Mall) very often because I have my English course there. So it's very easy to get rather than Sour Sally. Sour Sally is a frozen yoghurt brand from US. Their nearest branch from my house is in Sency (Senayan City), but Sency is further than PIM, and beside that, Sour Sally is more expensive. But J.Cool hasn't widely available in J.Co branches all over the country. For example, when I went to Jogja, I went to a J.Co branch and when I asked about J.Cool, it hadn't available yet. Huuuuuu I wanted it so badly when I was in Jogja. Tomorrow I'm going to PIM and I'll buy it after my course. Huuuuhuuuuu :)
my new scrumptious munchie, don't forget to sup it when you have a chance. Satisfaction guaranteed. Hahaha :) By the way, do you realize that there is something wrong with the spelling above, can you guess what? Haha it's very obvious though

I've just surfed through www.art.com, the most amazing website I've ever seen (not that much, actually). I always attracted by some kinds of artsy things, although I can't make something like that, but I always love to stare at it. Here are some pieces of art from www.art.com that I found very beautiful and interesting! Enjoy
PS: I wish I could afford something like those, there are not that expensive, but I won't be able to buy it in a short period.
Singing Butler by Jack Vettriano
Exit Eden by Jack Vettriano
Another masterpiece from Jack Vettriano, Waltzers
For further information, please check out http://www.jackvettriano.com, you can check out his upcoming painting exhibitions, posters, and catalogues.
I also found few interesting paintings by Jamie Edwards, I tried to scroll up his name on Google, but his name was very common, so I didn't find any official webstite from him, but you can still browse through http://www.art.com/gallery/id--a43715/jamie-edwards-posters.htm. Based on his paintings, I reckon he is a fan of cat or dog or both. Although I'm not a fan of cat or dog (or any animals, basically), I still find his paintings very interesting.
Corner Cafe by Jamie Edwards
Cats On Grandma's Chair by Jamie Edwards
Tux Cat Goes To The Vet by Jamie Edwards
Aaaarrrgggh I wish I could make or create or paint something like that. Huuuuuu I want to have my own art gallery like Rufus Humphrey in Gossip Girl. Maybe if I earn my own pocket money, I can save it to buy some paintings like those, then collect them and open a gallery. They only cost below $70, FYI. Duuuuhhh
