Red and White III: Freedom of Hearts, Meet and Greet

Ini sebenernya cerita lama, tapi berhubung gw baru bikin blognya sekarang, gw certain sekarang aja yaaaaa………

August 17, 2009. I went to Senayan City with a friend of mine to watch Red and White. Actually, I didn’t really into it for the first time. But after I watched it, I become a crazy fan of the movie and also Darius Sinathrya and Donny Alamsyah because of their handsomeness #ups, and Rahayu Saraswati because of her wonderful acting. Thanks to my friend for asking me out to watch Red and White.

June 11, 2011. There was a promo of Red and White III: Freedom of Hearts at Mega Bekasi XXI.
I knew it from twitter by 11 o’clock. Then I told my mum, I begged her so I could come to Mega Bekasi XXI by 6 o’clock. And my mum let me go! Yeay! I asked my friends to accompany me, but no one wanted to come with me. But I didn’t surrender, I called my cousin and asked him out. Thank God, he wanted to accompany me! Unfortunately, he was late to pick me up. So, I called my neighbor to drive me to Mega Bekasi XXI. I was late. My cousin was late too.

As soon as I arrived, I ran to XXI. When I entered the door, I didn’t see any crowd. I started to think, sh*t I was late! Because of my cousin! And now they’re gone! But somehow, suddenly I saw a girl who really looked like just Astri Nurdin. I watched her again and again. Then suddenly, I saw Donny Alamsyah. Yeah! They were there!!! I called my cousin again to make sure that he’s here. When I want to talk to them (Red and White casts), they’re gone. I was like… OH NO!!! WHERE WERE THEY?? Really, I wanted to cry because that was the first time for me, chasing my idols like crazy. But I guessed they were on the theater to watch the movie. So I bought the tickets and entered the theater. Thank God they were there!

“Kak, boleh minta tanda tangan ga, kak?” gue nanya ke kak Rahayu Saraswati. And she said, “boleh.” Terus gue tanya lagi, “boleh foto bareng ga, kak?” dan kata doi boleh. Suddenly, I felt like… HEAVEN. Then we (me, kak Rahayu Saraswati, kak Donny Alamsyah, pak Yadi Sugandi) went to the outside of theater and taking pictures! THAT WAS SO GREAT!!!!! Then we went inside again and watched the movie. Tapi mereka cuma nonton bagian depan karena mereka masih ada acara dan kak Donny belum lihat bagian depan filmnya. But that’s okay. I felt happy already.

Lalu…….. terjadilah keributan fans-fans Darius yang pada ngambek karena Darius gak datang ke promo di Bekasi dan di Bintaro. Akhirnya…. Untuk menebus fans-fans nya, Darius bikin acara nobar sendiri di PIM. He told us on twitter. Langsung saja gw sign up supaya bisa nobar. And thank God, gw dapet urutan nomor 3. HAHAHAHAHA. But again unfortunately, no one wanted to come with me. Poor me, eh? TAPI GW GAK NYERAH. Then I asked Dimas if he could accompany me. And he said OKAY. WOHOOWWW!

June 20, 2011. Me and Dimas went to PIM buat nobar bareng Darius. Kita sampe sekitar jam 3-an terus muter-muter di PIM. Gw dapet SMS dari yang pegang tiket, katanya jam 4 tiketnya udah bisa diambil di XXI PIM 1. Terus kita ke XXI. Pas gw tanya sama satpam & mbak-mbak tukang tiket, mereka gak tau bakal ada nobar. Kagetlah gw takut diboongin. But I thought, gak mungkin lah ya Darius boong? Bisa habis nanti dia sama fans-fans nya. Akhirnya gw sama Dimas jalan-jalan dulu. Terus pas udah jam 4-an kita balik ke XXI dan ternyata yang megang tiket itu lagi duduk. Dan ternyata tiketnya FREE. Gw kira bayar. WUHUW.

Terus sekitar jam 5-an, suddenly kak Darius showed up with his blue shirt and jeans. I was shocked. Totally shocked. Dag dig dug seeerrrrrr. But I was just too afraid to talk to him. Dia ramah banget loh nyapa fans-fansnya. Terus dia ke pintu depan. Dan kalian tau dia ketemu siapa? Ranggani Puspandya Banuarti. WOW. Makin kaget aja gw. Kirain Darius doang sendiri, ternyata ada kak Arnie. And thanks to me! Kalo waktu itu gw gak nanya kak Arnie soal nobar di PIM, mungkin doi gak akan dateng. Terus mereka pergi makan bareng.  Mereka lamaaaaaaaaaaaaaa banget gak balik-balik. Gw duduk nungguin udah kaya orang apaan tau degdegan, cengarcengir. Akhirnya gw bilang ke Dimas, kita tunggu di depan aja biar bisa langsung ketemu ntar pas mereka balik.

Jadilah kita nunggu di depan XXI. Terus ada yang ikut-ikutan gitu ih nyebelin banget. Gw duluan kaleee woooo. Dan tepat seperti prediksi gw, pas mereka muncul, gw duluan yang kesampean ketemu mereka. HAHAHA. Dan hebatnya mereka mengenali gw kalo gw itu Amanda Alethea. HIHIHIH SENENG GILA PARAH GAK LOOOO???! Terus gw minta tanda tangan dan foto bareng. Terus ngantrilah itu cewek-cewek dibelakang gw pada mau foto sama mereka juga.

Lalu kita nonton bareng deh…… gw di seat A, kak Darius sama kak Arnie di seat C. berhubung itu gw nonton yang k3 kali, jadi gw sambil mainan hp. Gw twit aja ke kak Arnie, “boleh ga kak abis nonton mau ngobrol bareng?” dan kata kak Arnie boleh.

Setelah selesai film, gw keluar duluan buat ke wc segala macem terus gw nunggu lagi di tempat tadi gw nunggu. Bareng Dimas. Gw ngiranya kita cuma bakal ngobrol-ngobrol gitu aja, tapi ternyata…… *ini bagian serunya*
Kak Darius & kak Arnie akhirnya keluar theater terus yaaa masih ada juga yang pada minta foto-foto bareng. Tapi pas kak Arnie keluar duluan, pas doi ngeliat gw, doi langsung kasih isyarat ngajak gw sama Dimas makan. Gw nya yang melongo, kaget heran surprise seneng nyampur jadi satu. Gw datengin aja kak Arnie, “SERIUS KAK NGAJAK KITA MAKAN? GAK PAPA?” terus kata kak Arnie, “tadi katanya mau ngobrol, sambil makan aja, kalian pasti laper kan?” gw sama Dimas yang cuma diem dan ngangguk aja, saking bingung mau respon apa. Terus kak Arnie bilang ke kak Darius mau ngajak kita makan dan doi setuju-setuju aja.

Akhirnya kita makan di Bakmi GM, tempatnya udah kaya private gitu. Dan sambil jalan ke Bakmi GM, semua orang ngeliatin gw sama Dimas. Gw yakin tuh pasti pada mikir, gila nih siapa mereka bisa makan sama Darius & Ranggani? Gw sampe kicep diliatin. Malu. Takut. Tapi yasudahlah yaaaaaa……….. sambil makan kita juga sambil ngobrol-ngobrol. Asik banget lah! Terus kita diceritain cerita-cerita dibalik layar pas syuting Hati Merdeka. Asiknyooooooooooooooo! Dan kita udah tau duluan kalo kak Darius mau bikin band namanya D’Bandhits. Hahaha asik kan udah tau duluan! Selesai makan kita foto lagi terus pulang deh.
after dinner. kak Arnie, Me, Dimas, kak Ius
three of us, after dinner
REALLY. THAT WAS SUPER GREAT TIME. HAHAHAHA. SUPERB.

Lunch From PIM to PI

Last Friday, I had my 18th birthday ahahaha on July 8th....
Last month on June 20th, I asked kak Ranggani Puspandya if she could eat with me to celebrate my birthday. And she said okay. I thought it was just only me and her because I was just too afraid to asked kak Ius, but suddenly she asked me if kak Darius Sinathrya could come or not. I thought, kirain gw doang berdua ternyata ada kak Ius hihi baiklah. And I said okay that's fine. It'd be fun though.

Before I tell my story, do you guys know Ranggani Puspandya Banuarti? People call her Arnie, She's a beautiful young woman. She's half sundanese-balinese. She's SO TALL *hiks, gw kalah tinggi parah*. She's a model, actress, tv presenter, news reader, freelancer, etc. She is known as Dayu at the movie 'Red and White Trilogy'.


And you guys must be know Darius Sinathrya Kartoprawiro. Am I right?. ahahaha. Well, some people call him Ius *just like what I've heard from kak Sara & kak Arnie*.

HERE WE GO!

I went out from my house by 11 AM. I went to TIS. Traffick jack hit me. I was like kyaaaaa oh shoot traffick jam aaa!!! It was like that. Finally I arrived at TIS and I bought Caffe Misto from Starbucks and waiting for kak Arnie to pick me up. Finally she showed up and we went to PIM.

Firstly, I asked kak Arnie to eat at Plaza Indonesia. She's fine with it because she had to meet a friend of her. But, suddenly we changed the place. Why? Because... "Ada yang manja nih." kata kak Arnie, yang tak lain dan tak bukan ada kak Ius. hahaha well, it's okay though. But unfortunately, I didn't know where PIM was because last time I went there on June 20th and it was like the first time for me and my friend accompanied me to there. Then I asked kak Arnie if she could pick me up and thank God, she could. We talked and laughed a lot. We shared about our experiences, about our high school time, about human racism, etc.

As soon as we arrived at PIM, we went to food court or whatever it was called, I didn't know. And we chose Bakerzin. I ordered Aglio Olio pasta. It was really hot and spicy. huh hah huh hah damn it! And finally kak Ius showed up. Then they started to talk about jobs which I didn't understand. I felt intimidated though hiks hiks. Kak Ius told us about his restaurant, his band, politics, etc. He told me to be careful for I have chosen the Faculty of Law as my study. They both gave me some advices which was really helpful *thank you kakak2!*.

Three of us *self camera by kak Ius*


After the lunch, kak Ius went to get back to work, kak Arnie and I went to Plaza Indonesia because she had to meet her friend. While she was driving, again we talked a lot. She told me about her funny mother. Haha. She made me wanted to see her mother and father. :p *you guys should hear her story!* Then we arrived at PI. while they were hanging out together, I went to Aksara and searching for Persuasion which kak Sara told me to read it. But they didn't have it. I confused. Too much books I wanted to buy. Well, finally I chose 'Sejarah Perempuan Indonesia' by Cora Vreede-de Stuers. Oh! I also buy Starbucks' Smoked Beef Quiche for my dinner ahahaha. Then, kak Arnie and I went home.

Sejarah Perempuan Indonesia: Gerakan dan Pencapaian by Cora Vreede-de Stuers

On our way to home, again we shared and talked a lot. About her best friend, my friends, anything lah. That's so much fun! I got a lot of stories and information.

kak Arnie, Me, kak Ius

And that's my story yesterday.. ;)

Waterbom PIK

Last Tuesday, me, my mum, Cheyenne (my fatty girl cousin) and friends went to Waterbom PIK.



L to R: Akew, Khrisna, Dan-gun, Radhit, Cheyenne, Me, Tya, Erin

my fatty cousin. guess, how old she is?
We played A LOT at Waterbom. HAHAHA. *masa kecil kurang bahagia, eh?*
We played Hair Pin, Twister, etc. *actually, I just remember both of 'em*
You guys should play Twister!!! That's the best slide I've ever tried!! Especially with the fat kid, wuiihhhh, you would feel "it".

Ah, me forgot. Yeyen was mad at Khrisna because of his late to Waterbom. HAHA. Not that mad, she was just kidding.
And Yeyen told the boys that they were ugly just like monkeys. What the hell! Six years old girl could say that! Amazed, eh? And she always splashed the boys and hit them. AHAHAHA. I didn't know why, because she didn't do any thing with us, the girls.

I enjoyed it so much, going around the pool with the swimming tire, leyeh-leyeh.... sorry I didn't know the translation of leyeh-leyeh.

When we took a rest, of course we did photoshoo! Wohoow!

Tya, Me, Erin
Akew, Radhit, Dan-gun, Khrisna


And this was the HAHAHAHAHAHAHA moment.......



Do you guys see that? Khrisna's face was SO PERVERT! HAHAHAHA The girls posed with him. It was like, he was the pervert guy and we were the slaves, OMGosh +.+ ahahah but that's funny!

And that's the story of our little swimming time :p

UNFORGETTABLE BIRTHDAY DINNER

Last Friday (July 8, 2011) was my birthday *again* haha, I had a dinner with kak Rahayu Saraswati to celebrate my birthday.
People call her Sara. Do you know her? Well, this is a little information about her...
She's a beautiful young woman, actress, dancer, singer, enterpreneur, philanthropist, and the follower of Jesus Christ. She's the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Hashim Djojohadikusumo. She's known as Senja at the movie Red and White Trilogy.



First, I went to Ruko Permata Senayan, behind Senayan City. She was taking photoshoot for a magazine, iCreate. When I entered the photo studio, she smiled at me and said, "Happy birthday!" I felt so happy though :D She looked so pretty. You guys should see her on her photoshoot!! She was stunning and gorgeous. And she could control her face so good. I was so amazed. Really. While waiting for her, I was starring at the stylist of her make-up named Billy. He was so funny!!!! And I guess he loves to dance. He danced for every song for even just a bit. Hihihihi. And because of him, now I'm addicted to Britney Spears' Till The World Ends. Oh boy.... but that's okay, I enjoy it :p
After the photoshoot, we went to Plaza Senayan. We talked a lot in her car. I told her about my dirty birthday surprise and she laughed so hard. HAHA. She said that's the moment which I could never forget. And she has never felt it.


Then we reached Plaza Senayan and went to Sushi-Tei. But as usual, we had to wait before we could take a seat, so we went to Disc Tara. I searched for Stan Getz but they didn't have it and kak Sara bought 3 CDs, one of 'em is Charice Pempengco's newest album.


We got back from Disc Tara and finally we got our seat. She confused about the food. She didn't know which food should she pick. Not because she never ate at Sushi-Tei, she was just confused. She ordered Negitoro-don but unfortunately it ran out of its sauce. hihihi. Bad luck. Then she ordered mini salmon don and I ordered mini tekka don. oh ya, she also told me about a soup which I had never tasted it until that day. And that was good! I liked it so much. Before we started to eat, I asked her to pray for me. Then we started to eat....


And suddenly kak Mala came, she's a friend of kak Sara and I like her. She's so much fun and talkative, just like kak Sara. She asked kak Sam (kak Sara's manager) to accompany her, looking for some stuff.


Me and kak Sara talked A LOT. She told me about Reverend Karina, and everything. I got so much advice and information from her, which was really really helpful.
In the middle of our talking, the waiter came and gave me 2 presents. I didn't know the person who gave me that. I thought Sushi-Tei gave it to me for free, kak Sara thought it from my secret admirer. w00t w00t.


Again, in the middle or our talking, the waitress came and told me that my mum called me. So I went outside to call her and suddenly.... 


Gracia: It was 6:30PM and we went to Sushi Tei again, to make sure that Thea and Kak Sara were there. So, we asked the lady for the name Thea. It turned out that Thea was already inside. Lalo then look inside for Thea, so we know where she's sitting. Lalo almost got busted, but good thing Thea and Kak Sara were praying. Lalo ran back outside and we decided to leave the present and the birthday card with the waiter. We went to grab dinner, while they had dinner.
I wasn't in the mood to eat, I just wanted the bday surprise to go smoothly.
When we got back to the waiting room, the waiter whom we gave the present to, said that they were eating. Knowing that it was taking a long time, I decided to go around and also look for a trash can. When I was walking back to Sushi Tei, there was Thea running outside towards me. Right that moment I wanted to run away, but she was opening her arms and it would be kinda weird if I ran. So, I checked if Lalo was still with the muffin. There she was sitting next to the muffins and looking as shocked as I am. Thea was trying to call her Mom and she asked if I wanted to meet Kak Sara. I was feeling so confused, guilty, and nervous at the same time. Confused, cause it seems Thea doesn't know that we're giving her a surprise. Guilty, cause if I didn't walk around, there's a slight chance I would ruin the surprise.

kak Sara and I, how beautiful she was (is) :")


Gray, Lalo and I


Lalo, Me, kak Sara and Gray


SUPERCREATIVEBirthdayCard from Lalo and Gray, how sweet :")
After all, we had a great timeAnd that's the sweet little story of my birthday dinner and my silly birthday surprise. What a priceless moment! Me love you guys so much!!! <3

Dirty Birthday Surprise

Last Friday (July 8th), was my birthday. That was the best birthday EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we go...


In the morning, I was lying on my bed, I didn't feel like doing anything. I didn't expect my friends would come for I had told my mum to not let them come. I was listening to U Fm 94.7 Radio Station. And suddenly...

"Thea!"
I heard my friends shouted outside my house. My heart beat fast. Omgosh. I didn't know what to do. I went downstairs and opened the gate for them.
Well, I felt so... kyaaaa my friends, they came for my birthday :")
Suddenly, Venny got my eyes closed and told me to blow up the candles. But I didn't feel the heat from the candles nor the smell of the cake. But, I smell flour!!!!!

Venny closed my eyes, Radhit held the flour +.+
