RIP: Sherlock, The Coolest Cat in the World

Last week we lost a beloved family member.

His name was Sherlock. And he was our lovable beige bullseye-tabby cat.

Even though Sherlock had been ill with kidney and respiratory problem since the second semester of last year. We were quietly confident that he can live for the next two or three years. The vet ordered us to change his diet to low protein in order to prolong his life, which we duly oblige. And after a while he seemed okay, and adjusting well to the new diet. There was no indication that we also faced a parasite in his blood, a fact only we made aware just a few hours before he died.

Pilkada DKI 2017, dan 3 Orang Kandidat Gubernur

Perlu ditegaskan di awal, bahwa saya sudah bukan warga Jakarta. Sejak Januari tahun lalu, secara resmi sudah menjadi warga Depok. Tapi saya jelas masih punya urusan dengan Jakarta. Lha wong nyari duitnya di sana kok. Hehehe.

Nah, soal pilkada DKI, ijinkan saya beri penilaian untuk ketiga kandidat – kebetulan, saya pernah bersentuhan langsung dengan kinerja dua dari tiga kandidat yang ada. Yaitu Pak Ahok, dan Mas Anies.

Keduanya orang baik, saya yakin.

Review: Paddington (2014)

Mrs. Brown: Perhaps you’d like an English name?
Paddington: An English name?
Mrs. Brown: Paddington!
Paddington: Paddington? I like it!

Jadi, saya termasuk beruntung karena dapat tugas jadi perwakilan MovieXplorers buat media screening Paddington di Kemang Village XXI (yang kebetulan cuma 5 menit dari rumah). Masuk ke dalam dengan harapan yang biasa-biasa saja, tapi keluar theater dengan senyum lebar. Hehehe.

Stop Merokok (lagi)

Biar gue jelaskan di awal, bahwa gue bukan quitter yang lantas jadi snob. Each to his own. Dan blog ini gue tulis khusus buat orang yang mau/sedang berhenti merokok. Gue tau kok “enaknya” merokok. Gue merokok lebih dari 15 tahun. Jadi gue ga akan nguliahin orang, betapa berbahayanya rokok, atau betapa perokok merampas hak-hak orang yang ga merokok. You smokers know the danger, but you choose to ignore it 😉 Continue reading “Stop Merokok (lagi)”

Winning Eleven: Best movies 2012

It’s almost a new year, and my plan to write at least one entry per month is ruined. No particular reason, other than I’ve got nothing interesting to write. As simple as that.

But I thought a tradition of writing some of the best movies I’ve watch in a year should continue.

I must admit, that I wasn’t able to watch as much movies as I wanted to. Even as I wrote this entry, some movies that could be a contender in this list – I haven’t yet to watch – like the Hobbit for example. Or Cloud Atlas, Django Unchained , etc.

But alas, here’s the list – and I hope you some of it fits in yours as well.
