The answes is :
By doing one single act of random kindness at a time. (Morgan Freeman in Evan Almighty)

And inspires me.

Usually my goals is always about possesions...

To have this ..
To own that..
etc.

This year i wanna make a lil difference..

I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that, and something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I'll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember, so they won't forget

I was here...
I lived, I loved
I was here...
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here...

I want to say I lived each day, until I died
I know that I had something in, somebody's life
The hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference, and this world will see

I was here...
I lived, I loved
I was here...
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here...

I was here...
I lived, I loved
I was here...
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here...

I just want them to know
That I gave my all, did my best
Brought someone to hapiness
Left this world a little better just because...

I was here...

I was here...
I lived, I loved
I was here...
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here...




When i was a kid, i really love drawing ...
I even draw a comic books when i was in elementary school and i really enjoy it..

 I quit drawing when im in high school... 
And since 18 years old i got so busy pursuing my goals to be financially independent, and i forget how fun it is to spend hours and hours designing stuff.

I loveeeeee seing good designs, wether it is a product, a brochure, a website, a magazine, a room, whatever.
When i go to restaurant, i prefer restaurant with great interior design, eventhough their food doesn't taste great. I even buy teen magazine regularly (Go Girl), just because i love the page layout!

I never have the confidence to call my self a designer, but you know, sometimes i got compliment from friends and my family who see my creation.. :)

Below are my works for a friend, they order a brochure design for their new Spa company. When i show them my design, they love it.. they say it looks beautiful. ( yaaay >.< ) They just want to add a frangipani flower drawings in the company logo, and also change the white background colour on top into a cream colour background. This is my first commercial designing project by the way :p 




I really enjoy the process in making this brochure, 
And i dont care about the money , nor the compliments, to be honest : eventhough they dont pay me a penny, i will still do it anyway because it brings me so much joy doing it. :)

Well, i  think i should give graphic design a chance...
You gotta do what makes you happy, right? :)












When i was around 20 years old 
i dreamed about being an extremely successful businesswoman,
to own a big company that exist worldwide
to have a private island
to have private jet
to have fancy luxury jaw dropping million dollar sport cars..
to gain worldwide recognition as an successful womenpreneur , make it into Forbes list..


and so on
and so forth...

But, you know, since i read and decide to re-post this article about Dr Teo, the millionaire cosmetic surgeon whom pass away because of cancer, this question always pops up to my mind in the past few days....
I think you, whoever you are, who read this post .. you might wanna ask these question too to yourself.

If im about to die in .. well, let say.. 12 months from now?

Will that goal still be important to me?
What will i do differently?
Will i still doing what im doing today?
What will i do more?
What will i stop doing?

And... im quite surprised that some of my life goals, 
the goals that i thought was important and essential for me...
it's not.
i dont want it anymore.

For example :
- i dont want to build my own big company,12 months is too short to build one, and afterall , i still can make more than enough money (at least it is enough for me), just by being a small online internet marketer/business owner like i am today..

And my answer to my self for those questions are :

If im  about to die, in 1 year from now.. i will spend my last 365 days doing this ....
- Spend as much time as i can, with my son, my husband, my family, and my bestfriends, i wanna tell them that i love them, and their support means the world to me..
- To pray more, being more grateful to God ..
- Travel more..
-  Share my "money making" knowledge and experience for free to those whom interested to be enterpreneur..
- Blogging positive articles, ideas, to the world...
- Designing and creating stuff. ( i love designing, it can be designing products packaging, brochure, website layout, it makes my happy...)
- Doing charity works

And what a realize is...
I used to think , that my goals comes from my self, comes from the heart..
and im surprised, that it is not.

My former life goals when i was younger, comes from what media tells me
it comes from the book i read, advertising that i see, magazines, tv commercial, etc
That i should own this , be this, do that.. In order to be considered successful in life. Back then i was thinking, this life is precious, i have to be super serious and make my life a masterpiece!
And if im successful (financially) , it will make me happier, it make people respect me more, and that is what you supposed to pursue in life. 

But hey, when i ask deeply to my heart.. if you're going to die in 12 months, will you pursue that goals, the answers become very clear..

No, i dont want it.
No, i dont really wanna be that
Its not what important for me.
It doesn't mean that i dont need money.
I need money, i still want to be wealthy. 
But i dont need to be featured in Forbes 
I dont need to be featured in SWA Magazine..
I dont need to have million dollar sportcar or Hermes Bag..
What i achieve today, is more than enough for me.

Well, media is doing a very good job in brainwashing people to buy this, to be that, to have this and that..

I saw a video in Youtube today, how powerful advertising agency power to brainwash people, society,
The video is documentary on how cigarette company works , how they brainwash people to buy toxic that people call cigaretess.

Its the same pattern actually.. Cigaretess equals youth, energetic, it makes you cool, and by being cool, it makes you happier.
The same like other lies, that you need this and that and be this and that, to be happy, that it is the essentials in life.





From now on, everytime i pursue a goal, i will ask, is it really important for me?
I wanna follow my heart..
its my life.. its me.. and i wanna make it meaningful....






PS : After reading this article below, and Gobind Vashdev in my previous post...

I think God is sending me a message
that I seriously need to 
Re- question..
Re- contemplate..
and re- design... my life goals.
And answering this question..
What do i wanna do with the rest of my life?
Why i wanna do it?
Will it make a difference for others?
Will it give me true happines and joy?



In Memory of Dr. Richard Teo (1972 - 2012)

Below is the transcript of the talk of Dr. Richard Teo, who is a 40-year-old millionaire and cosmetic surgeon with a
 stage-4 lung cancer but selflessly came to share with the D1 class his life experience on 19-Jan-2012. He has just passed away few days ago on 18 October 2012.






Hi good morning to all of you. My voice is a bit hoarse, so please bear with me. I thought I'll just introduce myself. My name is Richard, I'm a medical doctor. And I thought I'll just share some thoughts of my life. It's my pleasure to be invited by prof. Hopefully, it can get you thinking about how... as you pursue this.. embarking on your training to become dental surgeons, to think about other things as well.

Since young, I am a typical product of today's society. Relatively successful product that society requires.. From young, I came from a below average family. I was told by the media... and people around me that happiness is about success. And that success is about being wealthy. With this mind-set, I've always be extremely competitive, since I was young.

Not only do I need to go to the top school, I need to have success in all fields. Uniform groups, track, everything. I needed to get trophies, needed to be successful, I needed to have colours award, national colours award, everything. So I was highly competitive since young. I went on to medical school, graduated as a doctor. Some of you may know that within the medical faculty, ophthalmology is one of the most highly sought after specialities. So I went after that as well. I was given a traineeship in ophthalmology, I was also given a research scholarship by NUS to develop lasers to treat the eye.

So in the process, I was given 2 patents, one for the medical devices, and another for the lasers. And you know what, all this academic achievements did not bring me any wealth. So once I completed my bond with MOH, I decided that this is taking too long, the training in eye surgery is just taking too long. And there's lots of money to be made in the private sector. If you're aware, in the last few years, there is this rise in aesthetic medicine. Tons of money to be made there. So I decided, well, enough of staying in institution, it's time to leave. So I quit my training halfway and I went on to set up my aesthetic clinic... in town, together with a day surgery centre.

You know the irony is that people do not make heroes out average GP (general practitioner), family physicians. They don't. They make heroes out of people who are rich and famous. People who are not happy to pay $20 to see a GP, the same person have no qualms paying ten thousand dollars for a liposuction, 15 thousand dollars for a breast augmentation, and so on and so forth. So it's a no brainer isn't? Why do you want to be a gp? Become an aesthetic physician. So instead of healing the sick and ill, I decided that I'll become a glorified beautician. So, business was good, very good. It started off with waiting of one week, then became 3weeks, then one month, then 2 months, then 3 months. I was overwhelmed; there were just too many patients. Vanities are fantastic business. I employed one doctor, the second doctor, the 3rd doctor, the 4th doctor. And within the 1st year, we're already raking in millions. Just the 1st year. But never is enough because I was so obsessed with it. I started to expand into Indonesia to get all the rich Indonesian tai-tais who wouldn't blink an eye to have a procedure done. So life was really good.

So what do I do with the spare cash. How do I spend my weekends? Typically, I'll have car club gatherings. I take out my track car, with spare cash I got myself a track car. We have car club gatherings. We'll go up to Sepang in Malaysia. We'll go for car racing. And it was my life. With other spare cash, what do i do? I get myself a Ferrari. At that time, the 458 wasn't out, it's just a spider convertible, 430. This is a friend of mine, a schoolmate who is a forex trader, a banker. So he got a red one, he was wanting all along a red one, I was getting the silver one.

So what do I do after getting a car? It's time to buy a house, to build our own bungalows. So we go around looking for a land to build our own bungalows, we went around hunting. So how do i live my life? Well, we all think we have to mix around with the rich and famous. This is one of the Miss Universe. So we hang around with the beautiful, rich and famous. This by the way is an internet founder. So this is how we spend our lives, with dining and all the restaurants and Michelin Chefs you know.

So I reach a point in life that I got everything for my life. I was at the pinnacle of my career and all. That's me one year ago in the gym and I thought I was like, having everything under control and reaching the pinnacle.

Well, I was wrong. I didn't have everything under control. About last year March, I started to develop backache in the middle of nowhere. I thought maybe it was all the heavy squats I was doing. So I went to SGH, saw my classmate to do an MRI, to make sure it's not a slipped disc or anything. And that evening, he called me up and said that we found bone marrow replacement in your spine. I said, sorry what does that mean? I mean I know what it means, but I couldn't accept that. I was like “Are you serious?” I was still running around going to the gym you know. But we had more scans the next day, PET scans - positrons emission scans, they found that actually I have stage 4 terminal lung cancer. I was like "Whoa where did that come from?” It has already spread to the brain, the spine, the liver and the adrenals. And you know one moment I was there, totally thinking that I have everything under control, thinking that I've reached the pinnacle of my life. But the next moment, I have just lost it.

This is a CT scan of the lungs itself. If you look at it, every single dot there is a tumour. We call this miliaries tumour. And in fact, I have tens of thousands of them in the lungs. So, I was told that even with chemotherapy, that I'll have about 3-4months at most. Did my life come crushing on, of course it did, who wouldn't? I went into depression, of course, severe depression and I thought I had everything.

See the irony is that all these things that I have, the success, the trophies, my cars, my house and all. I thought that brought me happiness. But i was feeling really down, having severe depression. Having all these thoughts of my possessions, they brought me no joy. The thought of... You know, I can hug my Ferrari to sleep, no... No, it is not going to happen. It brought not a single comfort during my last ten months. And I thought they were, but they were not true happiness. But it wasn't. What really brought me joy in the last ten months was interaction with people, my loved ones, friends, people who genuinely care about me, they laugh and cry with me, and they are able to identify the pain and suffering I was going through. That brought joy to me, happiness. None of the things I have, all the possessions, and I thought those were supposed to bring me happiness. But it didn't, because if it did, I would have felt happy think about it, when I was feeling most down..

You know the classical Chinese New Year that is coming up. In the past, what do I do? Well, I will usually drive my flashy car to do my rounds, visit my relatives, to show it off to my friends. And I thought that was joy, you know. I thought that was really joy. But do you really think that my relatives and friends, whom some of them have difficulty trying to make ends meet, that will truly share the joy with me? Seeing me driving my flashy car and showing off to them? No, no way. They won’t be sharing joy with me. They were having problems trying to make ends meet, taking public transport. In fact i think, what I have done is more like you know, making them envious, jealous of all I have. In fact, sometimes even hatred.

Those are what we call objects of envy. I have them, I show them off to them and I feel it can fill my own pride and ego. That didn't bring any joy to these people, to my friends and relatives, and I thought they were real joy.

Well, let me just share another story with you. You know when I was about your age, I stayed in king Edward VII hall. I had this friend whom I thought was strange. Her name is Jennifer, we're still good friends. And as I walk along the path, she would, if she sees a snail, she would actually pick up the snail and put it along the grass patch. I was like why do you need to do that? Why dirty your hands? It’s just a snail. The truth is she could feel for the snail. The thought of being crushed to death is real to her, but to me it's just a snail. If you can't get out of the pathway of humans then you deserve to be crushed, it’s part of evolution isn't it? What an irony isn't it?

There I was being trained as a doctor, to be compassionate, to be able to empathise; but I couldn't. As a house officer, I graduated from medical school, posted to the oncology department at NUH. And, every day, every other day I witness death in the cancer department. When I see how they suffered, I see all the pain they went through. I see all the morphine they have to press every few minutes just to relieve their pain. I see them struggling with their oxygen breathing their last breath and all. But it was just a job. When I went to clinic every day, to the wards every day, take blood, give the medication but was the patient real to me? They weren't real to me. It was just a job, I do it, I get out of the ward, I can't wait to get home, I do my own stuff.

Was the pain, was the suffering the patients went through real? No. Of course I know all the medical terms to describe how they feel, all the suffering they went through. But in truth, I did not know how they feel, not until I became a patient. It is until now; I truly understand how they feel. And, if you ask me, would I have been a very different doctor if I were to re-live my life now, I can tell you yes I will. Because I truly understand how the patients feel now. And sometimes, you have to learn it the hard way.

Even as you start just your first year, and you embark this journey to become dental surgeons, let me just challenge you on two fronts.

Inevitably, all of you here will start to go into private practice. You will start to accumulate wealth. I can guarantee you. Just doing an implant can bring you thousands of dollars, it's fantastic money. And actually there is nothing wrong with being successful, with being rich or wealthy, absolutely nothing wrong. The only trouble is that a lot of us like myself couldn't handle it.

Why do I say that? Because when I start to accumulate, the more I have, the more I want. The more I wanted, the more obsessed I became. Like what I showed you earlier on, all I can was basically to get more possessions, to reach the pinnacle of what society did to us, of what society wants us to be. I became so obsessed that nothing else really mattered to me. Patients were just a source of income, and I tried to squeeze every single cent out of these patients.

A lot of times we forget, whom we are supposed to be serving. We become so lost that we serve nobody else but just ourselves. That was what happened to me. Whether it is in the medical, the dental fraternity, I can tell you, right now in the private practice, sometimes we just advise patients on treatment that is not indicated. Grey areas. And even though it is not necessary, we kind of advocate it. Even at this point, I know who are my friends and who genuinely cared for me and who are the ones who try to make money out of me by selling me "hope". We kind of lose our moral compass along the way. Because we just want to make money.

Worse, I can tell you, over the last few years, we bad mouth our fellow colleagues, our fellow competitors in the industry. We have no qualms about it. So if we can put them down to give ourselves an advantage, we do it. And that's what happening right now, medical, dental everywhere. My challenge to you is not to lose that moral compass. I learnt it the hard way, I hope you don't ever have to do it.

Secondly, a lot of us will start to get numb to our patients as we start to practise. Whether is it government hospitals, private practice, I can tell you when I was in the hospital, with stacks of patient folders, I can't wait to get rid of those folders as soon as possible; I can't wait to get patients out of my consultation room as soon as possible because there is just so many, and that's a reality. Because it becomes a job, a very routine job. And this is just part of it. Do I truly know how the patient feels back then? No, I don't. The fears and anxiety and all, do I truly understand what they are going through? I don't, not until when this happens to me and I think that is one of the biggest flaws in our system.

We’re being trained to be healthcare providers, professional, and all and yet we don't know how exactly they feel. I'm not asking you to get involved emotionally, I don't think that is professional but do we actually make a real effort to understand their pain and all? Most of us won’t, alright, I can assure you. So don't lose it, my challenge to you is to always be able to put yourself in your patient's shoes.

Because the pain, the anxiety, the fear are very real even though it's not real to you, it's real to them. So don't lose it and you know, right now I'm in the midst of my 5th cycle of my chemotherapy. I can tell you it’s a terrible feeling. Chemotherapy is one of those things that you don't wish even your enemies to go through because it's just suffering, lousy feeling, throwing out, you don't even know if you can retain your meals or not. Terrible feeling! And even with whatever little energy now I have, I try to reach out to other cancer patients because I truly understand what pain and suffering is like. But it's kind of little too late and too little.

You guys have a bright future ahead of you with all the resource and energy, so I’m going to challenge you to go beyond your immediate patients. To understand that there are people out there who are truly in pain, truly in hardship. Don’t get the idea that only poor people suffer. It is not true. A lot of these poor people do not have much in the first place, they are easily contented. for all you know they are happier than you and me but there are out there, people who are suffering mentally, physically, hardship, emotionally, financially and so on and so forth, and they are real. We choose to ignore them or we just don't want to know that they exist.

So do think about it alright, even as you go on to become professionals and dental surgeons and all. That you can reach out to these people who are in need. Whatever you do can make a large difference to them. I'm now at the receiving end so I know how it feels, someone who genuinely care for you, encourage and all. It makes a lot of difference to me. That’s what happens after treatment. I had a treatment recently, but I’ll leave this for another day. A lot of things happened along the way, that's why I am still able to talk to you today.

I'll just end of with this quote here, it's from this book called Tuesdays with Morris, and some of you may have read it. Everyone knows that they are going to die; every one of us knows that. The truth is, none of us believe it because if we did, we will do things differently. When I faced death, when I had to, I stripped myself off all stuff totally and I focused only on what is essential. The irony is that a lot of times, only when we learn how to die then we learn how to live. I know it sounds very morbid for this morning but it's the truth, this is what I’m going through.

Don’t let society tell you how to live. Don’t let the media tell you what you're supposed to do. Those things happened to me. And I led this life thinking that these are going to bring me happiness. I hope that you will think about it and decide for yourself how you want to live your own life. Not according to what other people tell you to do, and you have to decide whether you want to serve yourself, whether you are going to make a difference in somebody else's life. Because true happiness doesn't come from serving yourself. I thought it was but it didn't turn out that way.

Also most importantly, I think true joy comes from knowing God. Not knowing about God – I mean, you can read the bible and know about God – but knowing God personally; getting a relationship with God. I think that’s the most important. That’s what I’ve learnt.

So if I were to sum it up, I’d say that the earlier we sort out the priorities in our lives, the better it is. Don’t be like me – I had no other way. I had to learn it through the hard way. I had to come back to God to thank Him for this opportunity because I’ve had 3 major accidents in my past – car accidents. You know, these sports car accidents – I was always speeding , but somehow I always came out alive, even with the car almost being overturned. And I wouldn’t have had a chance. Who knows, I don’t know where else I’d be going to! Even though I was baptised it was just a show, but the fact that this has happened, it gave me a chance to come back to God.

Few things I’d learnt though:
1. Trust in the Lord your God with all your heart – this is so important.
2. Is to love and serve others, not just ourselves.

There is nothing wrong with being rich or wealthy. I think it’s absolutely alright, cos God has blessed. So many people are blessed with good wealth, but the trouble is I think a lot of us can’t handle it. The more we have, the more we want. I’ve gone through it, the deeper the hole we dig, the more we get sucked into it, so much so that we worship wealth and lose focus. Instead of worshipping God, we worship wealth. It’s just a human instinct. It’s just so difficult to get out of it.

We are all professionals, and when we go into private practise, we start to build up our wealth – inevitably. So my thought are, when you start to build up wealth and when the opportunity comes, do remember that all these things don’t belong to us. We don’t really own it nor have rights to this wealth. It’s actually God’s gift to us. Remember that it’s more important to further His Kingdom rather than to further ourselves.

Anyway I think that I’ve gone through it, and I know that wealth without God is empty. It is more important that you fill up the wealth, as you build it up subsequently, as professionals and all, you need to fill it up with the wealth of God.

If you are a new year resolution freak like me,
and especially if you always measure and review your achievement year by year (and feel like a failure if you dont achieve your target ....)
 i think you should read this beautiful article below.



Mendekati akhir tahun seperti saat ini, banyak sekali muncul review tentang perusahaan sampai dengan skala negara,.
Dari ratusan atau ribuan variabel yg tersedia, perhatian manusia modern lebih tersita pada pertumbuhan ekonomi.

Kalau sebuah negara bisa bertumbuh + apalagi lebih dari 5% artinya sukses. Dan sebaliknya seolah nista bila pertumbuhan ekonominya negatif. 

Kita seolah ingin membatalkan 
hukum alam , bahwa apa yg naik akan turun , yg tumbuh akan mengkerut dan yg muncul akan lenyap dan kemudian sebaliknya akan terjadi.

Saat ini setiap negara mempertahankan "mati-matian" agar selalu dan selalu bertumbuh, bahkan mengorbankan begitu banyak hal yg seringkali lebih berharga daripada kenikmatan yg didapat dari pertumbuhan tersebut.

Bila kita mau menaikan leher kita lebih tinggi sedikit, kita akan melihat sebuah konvoi besar yg berjalan berlawanan dengan apa yg mereka inginkan, yaitu Kebahagiaan.
Ketika seseorang mengingatkan mereka bahwa mereka menuju arah yg salah, jawaban yg di terima 
"Diam kau,kita sedang bertumbuh 6% pertahun"
sebagian kecil sadar namun tak berani berbalik arah, karena yg berbalik di bilang tak waras.

lihatlah,
Amerika pernah di kenal dan di kenang sebagai negara dengan pendapatan perkapita terbesar tuga menjadi jawara dalam penggunaan obat penenang 

China yang ekonominya bukan hanya menanjak tapi meroket dalam 20 tahun terakhir ini diikuti dengan angka bunuh diri tertinggi di dunia.

Disisi sebaliknya negara-negara yg penduduknya relatif lebih berbahagia, seperti Islandia, dimana kegagalan diterima bahkan dihormati. Bhutan punya istilah "Gross National Happiness is more important than Gross National Product" yg di tempel di sekolah2.

Dunia ini bukanlah stadion tempat kita berlomba untuk mengeruk pundi harta sebanyak mungkin, namun sebuah rumah dengan taman bermain yg selayaknya kita rawat untuk anak-anak kita dan syukur2 bisa lebih indah sewaktu kita meninggalkannya.

Winston Churchill pernah berkata " kita hidup dari apa yg kita dapatkan dan kita bahagia dari apa yg kita berikan"
Bukan seberapa banyak yg kita dapatkan yg membuat kita bahagia tapi seberapa besar yg kita kontribusikan.

Selalulah ingat, bahwa diakhir hidup, kita tidak dinilai dari berapa banyak uang yg kita telah kumpulkan, besar rumah yg kita tempati, bagus mobil yg kita kendarai tapi berapa banyak jiwa yg kita sentuh selama kita menggunakan tubuh manusia ini.

Sahabat, Tetap akhiri tahun ini dengan merancang sebuah target yg fantastis untuk tahun depan, bukan target besarnya pengumpulan tapi banyaknya kontribusi.

berbagilah maka anda akan berbahagia

Please Share :) _/\_

His best joke was when one of the finalist was introduced, she is an online shop owner,
Dave Hendrik immediately said " Hi sista... PO sist?"  
I was like.. Bwahahahahahha LOL

The show was good, but for honest, Oriflame Gala Dinner is wayyyy better 
The next day i go to Oriflame Head Office for meeting about this new project that my company will launch in 2013




After meeting, i met my Financial Planner to do final review of my financial plan execution.




That's a sneak peek on my financial review..  I grow my asset 33% vs last year *yay*
But.... I have VERY LOW Liquid assets, i need to have liquid assets, minimum IDR 300 million for emergency fund 
And also, buy health and life insurance *not unit link* Deadline : January 2013


So that was my 2 days in Jakarta......... :D Finally.. Its a wrap everyone!





So currently my home is on renovation, and its been 2 months.
And yesterday i have a chance to choose my wall paintings!



I told my husband that, i own the prerogative right to do home decoration, and decision is on me. Mwahahaha

So here's the decision :
- My bed room  :  lime green. *cheers*, and the interior will be in white, will do a make over for the furniture. I wont buy a new expensive stuff but i think i will paint my old furniture. We'll see how it will look like.
- My son's room : orange. And i want to paint a tree in his room, also buy a car shaped bed if i can find that fits my budget O_o
- Other room : chocolate. well its not the dark one, more like a coffee latte colour.

I am excited to see the result!

Photo updates soon !




Agnes Monica is truly inspirational...

The main reason that i adore her, is not about her music, but her courage to pursue her dream.
This is her video from her speech at Global Youth Conference in Bali *yay thumbs up for Bali*, where her latest single with Timbaland will be the theme song for this Global Youth Movement. Yep, Timbaland, the producer who works with Nelly Furtado, Justin Timberlake, etc.

*jawdrop*

Her speech is sooooo awesome, each of her sentence are like a three point in basketball game. *bam bam bam* Im quite sure if im watching her speech live, i will give standing ovation and clap my hands for hours.



My Favorite quotes :
- Haters gonna hate no matter how good you are. So be the best instead.
- People think that im arrogant, because i dream to win my first grammy. People was like, what do you talking about? you're just Indonesian. Some people hate me because i know what i want, and im not afraid to pursue what i want. For some people knowing what you want in life is arrogance, but for me its confidence.
- When i was dreaming about going international, i bought this huge pink folder, and i start compiling, who i wanna be working with, dancer, singer, songwriters, producers. And the first page on that folder is Timbaland's name. And in 2010 , i have that chance to meet and work with Timbaland, and today 2012 i can release this song with him and this song will be part of this particular global youth movement about making a chance. #awesomeness!!!!!
- Do more than what it takes to make it happen.
and the closing sentence :
Miracle was called miracle because its once, not believed.

BRAVOOOOO *standing ovation*

Im not an expert, but im pretty good at being curious and googling around :p
Enjoy this basic tutorial on how to make your own website.

Step 1.


Sewa domain dan hosting dulu.
Aku langganannya di Mongkiki , atau di Bali Orange
Alasan sewa disana, karena yang Mongkiki itu kenal sama ownernya , trus kalau Bali Orange karena pernah main ke kantornya, jadi kalau ada apa-apa dan butuh technical support, deket dari rumah (paling gak sama2 di Bali ;p )
Domain itu : alamat website , contoh : www.websitekunih.com
Hosting itu space penyimpanan data untuk menyimpan data, kalau diibaratkan kayak rumah virtual tempat numpukin itu file2 website biar bisa dilihat ama pengunjung *pardon me if im wrong, im not an expert, okay #galak *

domain murah , biasanya 90,000an per tahun, hosting tergantung kebutuhan...
Tips milih hosting sih katanya temen kalau web targetnya untuk pasar Indonesia pilih server Indonesia dan seterusnya. Tauk deh bener apa enggak LOL

Habis order domain, bayar, biasanya dikirimin tuh nanti file keramat berisi username dan password cpanel.
Cpanel itu ... Control Panel, tempat buat ngelakuin hal2 penting seperti bikin email, install script, bikin subdomain dan lain sebagainya, *masih belum mahir nguprek2 cpanel sih*
SIMPAN BAIK2 filenya , trus login ke cpanel pake username and password yang ada di file tadi.


Step 2.


Instalasi CMS.
CMS itu Content Management System, software buat ngutak ngatik itu website.
Untuk bikin blog, web e-commerce, website affiliate,  bisa pake wordpress. Enak ngutak ngatiknya karena pluginnya banyak (plugin itu semacam addons kalau di mozilla atau aplikasi deh simplenya)
Untuk bikin website forum , pake PHP BB
Untuk bikin web e-commerce bisa pakai Prestashop..
Dst.. banyak banget , ga apal T.T"

Nginstall yang gampang pake auto installer yang namanya softaculous,
biasanya udah ada di cpanel 
tinggal klik mau install CMS apa, di domain apa... Jreng.... Kelar..

Kalau mau manual bisa pakai FTP (File Transfer Protocol) yang paling ngetop sih  FileZilla...
Rada ribet kalau masi newbie tol, kalau ngupdate blog aja masi bingung pake softaculous aja.


Nah...
Udah deh , Rangka website udah kelar..
Tinggal nguprek2 isi dan themesnya..

Selamat pusing mencoba :-*
Kapan2 tutorialnya dilanjutin kalau ga males :D









Since im not an employee, im blessed with freedom to choose when to work, and when to get lazy all day ;p
I choose Monday as my day off in a week ( on the other days i usually work  8-9 hours a day)
simply because  (almost) everyone else is working on Monday and it's nice to hang out whenthere's not too many people around.

Today is more special because last week has been a rough week for me, and its really nice to finally refreshed :)

I spent today with my besties, hanging around in BeachWalk, with my new car. Err... I dont like to brag, but  i finally buy my dream car. I named it Black B. Awesome driving experience. Totally!  >.<



Ratih and her cousin Endita 


Erta - Eva - Yulia - eating high GI and lots of calories.  ;p


Watching Breaking Dawn part 2. Not a die hard fans of this series but overall i think the movie is pretty good!




After that, chillin' in Kitchenette with twitter friends from Jakarta who come for a short holiday here..
Super Lazy Lovely Monday!
Feel refreshed and ready for a great week ahead!

Now, lets get back to work people! YEAH!







This week my energy was drained, both emotionally and physically...

Food poisoning, and also a fight with someone who constantly bullied me verbally for the past 2 years.

But, eventhough my energy was super low... I am so grateful that i have my dearest husband , my family, friends, they always support me no matter what :')

What i learn this week ..

1. Family and bestfriends is everything..
2. I choose the right husband and am so grateful for that. ;p
3. If someone cross the borderline and abuse you verbally or phisically, give them high five , in the face with a chair   get a help.

Btw, this David Guetta feat SIA is the perfect soundtrack for this week for me. *headbang* LOL :)))





You shout it out
But I can't hear a word you say
Talking loud not saying much
I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet
Shoot me down but I get up
I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
Cut me down but it's you who has further to fall
Ghost town, haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
Talking loud not saying much
I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium (x3)
Stone hard, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone hard, this bulletproof mess
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium (x4)
I am titanium.



Jadi pulang dari Jakarta kemarin Ibu habis ngikut event Success Seminar Oriflame (will write about this soon on kusumadewi.net) ...
Dijemput sama keluarga dan lihat kepala Tu Gus udah isi perban dan jahitan :((

Kejedot di dapur waktu main sama Tu Niang .

Tapi habis dijahit ga ada diemnya tetep Tu Gus minta jalan-jalan melulu T.T"



Karena dijahit Tu Gus tidurnya miring-miring nak..
Seneng pake jam tangan hadiah dari Mama dan Kak Dimas ya

Tasnya hadiah Mama nanti disimpen buat dipake ke sekolah ya nak.



I really adore Michelle Phan , she is a genius! She started from this video below 4 years ago...





And when i saw her last uploaded video... My jaw just drop , this is exactly what im imagining for my own company! Awesome!





From a simple girl uploading home made videos, to a multi millionaire internet sensation, lancome video make up artist, and a company owner. Superb!



Dulu banget, pernah beli buku The Power of Kepepet, saking berkesannya sampe dibikin blogpost di blog kusumadewi.net Februari 2009 ( 3 years ago )
 Lucunya adalah, beli bukunya tapi gak ngeh yang nulis siapa. Sampai suatu hari di twitter, entah gimana ceritanya follow akun @jayayea .. Udah lama follow baru nyadar, lah ini ya yang nulis buku The Power of Kepepet :-|

 Twitternya menarik banget, bermanfaat, ilmunya daging semua deh di twitter Terus diceritain sama si Mbah @webmasterID .. Katanya Mas J baik banget dan kalau bagi ilmu itu bener2 tulus.. Sampe kepengen ikutan e-camp (program enterprenurship training) nya yang bulan November ini.. Tapi karena bentrok schedule (plus ga dikasi suami karena suami suka sebel kalau aku ikut seminar yang juta juta) hmm hmm... ya udah, ga jadi

 Eh tapi ternyata rejeki ga kemana yah hihi, ternyata Mas J ngadain kopdar di Bali, GRATIS, karena beliau lagi ngisi training e-camp untuk mitra binaan PT Free Port di Bali, acaranya di Pecatu.. Gosh gosh gosh. Bener-bener beda yaa belajar sama praktisi dan sama MotiPaktor ;p

 Jadi .. apa aja intisari yang dipelajarin hari ini sama Mas Jaya Yea... Let me sum it up in my words.

1. About the cashflow quadrant.

 Bagi pengusaha apalagi orang MLM *like me* kitab suci nya sudah pasti tentunya cashflow quadrant nya Robert T Kiyosaki lah yaaa...

Cetar banget deh masukan dari Mas J tentang si Cashflow quadrant ini. Jadi sebenernya banyak orang yang kuadran S.. keukeuh pengen masuk kuadran B, bikin business yang punya sistem, dan kejer passive income dari sana , trus baru masuk ke I..

 no .. no .. no...

 Everyone is unique, dan for honest bikin business yang sistemnya rapi, yang saat ditinggal ownernya bisnisnya growing terus, bukan bisnis yang pas ownernya ada bisnisnya jalan pas ownernya ga ada bisnisnya ga berkembang, ga semua orang bisa.

 Ada orang yang natural talentnya mungkin jadi self employee , tapi jangan ciut juga.. self employee itu bukan berarti jelek. You can make huge money too by being a self employee.. Let say jadi selebriti, atau jadi make up artist, or whatever lah.


Yang penting pinter2 ngatur uang yang masuk tadi aja . Saat business mu yang masih ada di kuadran S berkembang pesat (lagi di fase Sapi perah kalau menurut BCG (Boston Consulting Group) Matrix *jadi inget jaman kuliah manajemen pemasaran* , duitnya banyak hasilnya...

 Go go go sisihkan buat beli asset (jadi masuk ke kuadran I), beli deh properti yang bisa ngasilin duit sewaan per bulannya, atau reksadana yang untuk pensiun, beli franchise yang udah paten yang pasti jalan.., etc) Bayangin kalau hasil kuadran S yang berkembang pesat tadi bisa didistribusiin ke 100 jenis investment, 100 investment yang kasi profit 3-5% per month. Risk distributionnya udah cukup aman deh kata Mas J..
 yah rugi 20 investmentnya masih ada pasif income mingkem tiap bulan.

 Bukan seberapa banyak uang yang masuk. Tapi seberapa pasif. *NOTE THAT*

 2. Dunia bisnis itu beda sama jadi agen MLM.

 Tadi sempet nanya, boleh sharing ga tips untuk achieve 1 M per bulan. Jawabannya menarik dan membuka mindset, bahkan goal tahunanku untuk 2013 pasti kena revisi karena jawabannya mas J tadi. "kalau dunia bisnis, itu beda sama jadi agen MLM atau asuransi, dimana incomenya bulanan. Kalau bisnis, bulan ini profit 1 M, bulan depan bisa rugi 1 M. "

 Kalo kesimpulanku sih jadinya yang penting jadinya adalah setiap dapat profit, buru buru lariin ke investment deh. (seperti dibahas di point 1)

 Hmmm nice nice.
 Setelah dapat input seperti itu , jadi keinget ilmunya Pak Tung (kalo ga salah)
Ada massive income (income besar tapi ga pasif)
Ada massive passive income (income besar dan pasif)
Ada juga passive income (income pasif tapi ga segede massive income)

Dari MLMku yah buat running kebutuhan bulanan dan bisa invest beberapa bisnis yah..
Terus dari company sendiri (yang masih diprepare ini) nanti selama masih di fase cash cow, bisa jadi massive incomenya, syukur syukur jadi massive passive income.


3. Keep your balance.


Trus yang sangat bagus tadi adalah... mau jadi millionair yang seperti apa?
 Mau yang tiap hari sibuk meeting sana sini, urus macem-macem,
atau yang nyantai... atau yang punya banyak waktu untuk keluarga. Bangunnya siang2.. habis bangun siang online, main ama anak, trus keluar rumah cuma 2-3 kali seminggu (ih ini aku banget sik)

 For me of course lah yang punya banyak waktu untuk keluarga dan bisa nyantai.
 Intinya : KEEP YOUR BALANCE. jangan sampai bisnis terus sampai keluarga bubar...



 4. Keep good relationship with others.


  Pesan penting banget buat agen MLM Jaga relasi baik-baik sama sesama teman di MLM mau upline, downline,crossline, karena pertemanan dan link is everything. (sama pesannya kayak coach nyoman).. Yes true. Walau crossline di MLM, ga nutup kemungkinan bisa partneran di tempat lainnya, yes?

So thats it the keypoints from me!






















Xoxo

Aku dengar ada yang bicara

Papa mamaku punya cita-cita
Dia baru berusia lima
Tapi semangatnya sungguh
sempurna

Never in your life, let them talk to you like you cannot
Yes, you’re young but you’re right
Walk your miles, do your part with a smile
’Cause you’re young
You’re young
You’re young

Hidupku itu adalah aku
Bukan kamu dan ragumu
Jangan sama-samakanku
Hidupmu itu adalah kamu
Bukan kata tidak mampu
Tak peduli usiamu
Aku muda, aku bisa

Tak perlu ragukan yang kau lihat
Orang ikuti kupunya jejak
Kamu yang nakal bikin kubosan
Mulut setan bicara tak karuan

Never in your life, let them talk to you like you cannot
Yes, you’re young but you’re right
Walk your miles, do your part with a smile
’Cause you’re young
You’re young
You’re young

Hidupku itu adalah aku
Bukan kamu dan ragumu
Jangan sama-samakanku
Hidupmu itu adalah kamu
Bukan kata tidak mampu
Tak perduli usiamu

Hidupku itu adalah aku
Bukan kamu dan ragumu
Jangan sama-samakanku
Biar kuberlari pakai hati
Tak berhenti sampai mati
Aku muda aku bisa

Le o Le o Le o E
Le o Le o Le o E

Kuberlari pakai hati
Tak berhenti sampai mati

Le o Le o Le o E
Le o Le o Le o E

Kuberlari pakai hati
Tak berhenti sampai mati

Hidupku itu adalah aku
Bukan kamu dan ragumu
Jangan sama-samakanku
Hidupmu itu adalah kamu
Bukan kata tidak mampu
Tak perduli usiamu

Hidupku itu adalah aku
Bukan kamu dan ragumu
Jangan sama-samakanku
Biar kuberlari pakai hati
Tak berhenti sampai mati
Aku muda aku bisa

Le o Le o Le o E

Kuberlari pakai hati
Tak berhenti sampai mati
