kamu gak boleh berhenti karena kamu seorang Legend


Dalam kamus bhs Inggris, Legend artinya: kisah / orang yang memberikan inspirasi dalam hidup. 

Dalam keseharian, kita bisa melihat dan sekaligus belajar dari orang-orang disekitar kita yg secara konsisten telah memberikan banyak inspirasi hidup. Saya  akan bercerita tentang seseorang yg bagi beberapa Engineer muda adalah merupakan seorang legend. Seperti yg sudah kalian ketahui, untuk bisa sampai pada posisi puncak dalam corporate world, tentu membutuhkan determinasi yg kuat, tapi perjuangan tidak hanya sampai disitu, karena bila sudah berada pada titik puncak, seorang leader baru bisa dikatakan a legend tentunya setelah berhasil bertahan memecahkan tiap masalah yg dihadapi & keberadaannya memberikan banyak manfaat bagi lingkungannya. 

Saya banyak bertemu dengan Engineer muda yg bekerja di sekitar Heng dan mendengar banyak hal tentang apa yg bisa didapat/dipelajari oleh mereka setelah mengenal sosok Heng. Semua rata-rata mengatakan hal yg sama: Heng telah menginspirasi mereka untuk pushing the boundaries, to work the extra mile, selalu melakukan yg terbaik, dan tak pernah mengenal kata menyerah. Menjadi kaum minoritas, tidak punya back-up dari atasan, dianggap remeh, dan semua hal negatif lainnya sudah tidak lagi menjadi penghalang bila mentalitas seorang legend telah terpatri dalam diri kita. Karena yg selalu ada hanyalah memberi diri pada totalitas pekerjaan. 

Tentu saja ada masa ups and downs, dimana kadang Heng sering merasa "galau", ini sifat yg manusiawi tetapi setelahnya akan selalu ada proses berpikir kreatif yg dibiarkannya mengalir dan bermain dalam pikiran sehingga menghasilkan pemecahan masalah yg berguna di saat yg tepat... 

Dan setiap kali Heng merasa tak berdaya, saya selalu mengatakan hal ini kepadanya: 

"Tidak masalah kalau kamu bingung atau sedih atau galau, yg jelas kamu tidak bisa berhenti, this is a point of no return karena kamu seorang legend, and legends don't stop ;) " 

Seorang Legend akan selalu bergerak maju, melangkah kedepan dan keep doing the right thing. Coz they're a true inspiration... 

----

Begitu juga kamu... Kamu juga merupakan a legend in the making, a legend untuk keluargamu, ponakanmu atau bagi temanmu... Kamu harus tetap semangat karena legend gak boleh dan gak bisa berhenti begitu saja...

White Teacups Collection


On previous post I talked about my teacups collection with chutney theme (colorful fruits on the side of the teacups), now I would like to show you my white teacups collection that I've been using in an abusive way #lol ;) Heng and I are using these teacups everyday and even though they're not from Corelle but they're a pretty much durable or should I say: tahan banting ;) 

We have 2 size of teacups, the bigger ones usually for our tea party and the little ones are for Heng's cappuccino & it's from Ritual collection that a friend bought us from Paris. You know how hard to find a perfect cappuccino cup here in Indo rite! So no wonder that Mr Busyman is extremely excited with those petite cups... 

I'm so obsessed with teacups and glassware, I might gonna steal some of my mom's collection in Cijantung and bring those cuties to our Kamoro home! Now, tell me what's your fave teacups series? Are you collecting those pieces? 

Meantime, please enjoy mine!

Corelle Chutney Teacup Collection


Teacup playing begins at age 5 and never truly ends ;) 

--- 

I would like to show you some of my favorite teacup that I've been using on our sacred high tea time at our Kamoro home. Heng and I spend most of our evening with a cup of hot tea, cake & endless conversation before bed. We're kinda make this tea time thing as one of our guilty pleasure ;) 

Ok, so now I'm gonna show you my vintage teacup collection from Corelle. This is a special teacup for me coz I bought it on a thanksgiving sale back to 2008 where Heng and I still living in Phoenix, AZ ;) So it's been quite a while now and I like the design, texture & color of its teacup. Corelle is known for its durability and it is made from America so it is always reminded us of our honeymoon time ;) The product itself are vintage and named as "chutney" with apple, pear and some leafs displayed on the side of the teacup.

Seattle Love







a good friend of mine just got accepted to Washington University at around Seattle area. I'm so proud of her cause not many gals would take such a big risk to stick on their goal and to pursue their dreams... I wish her best of luck and I couldn't wait to meet her again in Seattle. Ohh gosh it seems like I can't get enough of this town ;) I have lots of wonderful friends living there. Law of attraction, I believe in you!
