24: Season 8 - fin

Oh nooo!!! I just read it on the internet, fox confirmed that Season 8 is 24's last season. They're stopping my 24! *crying out loud*

Read the article below:

'24' Canceled -- Jack Bauer's Last Day!

After eight seasons, Fox has decided to cancel 24!!!
Series star Kiefer Sutherland reflected on the show’s run: “This has been the role of a lifetime, and I will never be able to fully express my appreciation to everyone who made it possible. While the end of the series is bittersweet, we always wanted 24 to finish on a high note, so the decision to make the eighth season our last was one we all agreed upon. This feels like the culmination of all our efforts from the writers to the actors to our fantastic crew and everyone at Fox. Looking ahead to the future, [executive producer and showrunner] Howard Gordon and I are excited about the opportunity to create the feature film version of 24. But when all is said and done, it is the loyal worldwide fan base that made it possible for me to have the experience of playing the role of Jack Bauer, and for that I am eternally grateful.”
Gordon told Variety, “Kiefer and me and the writers had (a decision to make). What’s the creative? What do we do? Is there any more story left to be told in this 24-hour format? We turned over every stone, and really determined that the story has come to an end in this 24-hour format.”
24 regular Mary Lynn Rajskub confirmed the news, tweeting, “Just found out we got the word officially. This is 24’s last season.”
The final two-hour episode will air May 24. Sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Jenson Button #1


Jenson Button won Australian F1 Grand Prix Melbourne. I cannot help but blog about this. Jenson Button has always been my favorite since he raced for Benetton back in 2001. Everybody was making fun of me back then, "What the hell? That guy's a loser. Why him?" The most common reaction everytime I stated/answered that my fav F1 racer is Jenson Button. Okay so, back then when he was still with Benetton, he usually finished 9th / 12th. It's the car!!! I have always known that if he gets the right car, he'd be number 1. Everybody usually just laughed at me everytime I said that, especially you, my little brother! :D Took 8 years to prove that he is good. As soon as Brawn GP appointed Button as their driver along with Barrichello, he started to prove the world that he is the world champion. You can't really imagine how satisfied I am, like beyond! I was right all this long. Now that Button is with McLaren team, I am more confident that he's going to win this season's F1 :) You go Jenson baby!!!

Kora Kora and Bora Bora

via Google/imagesearch

I'm so in loove with St. Regis Bora Bora. Like insanely in love. I've always wanted to go there, but after seeing "Couples Retreat" movie few weeks ago... I've been dreaming about going specifically to St. Regis Bora Bora. Bora Bora is a very beautiful place, unbelievably gorgeous. And St. Regis? Oh I know St. Regis. Been to St. Regis Bali before, stayed there for a couple of days. It was definitely my best hotel experience. Amazing hotel interior, villas, pool, excellent food, superb service and I'm confident to say that it's the best hotel in Indonesia, today. Having that kind of experience in St. Regis Bali, do I need to doubt St. Regis Bora Bora? I'm sure it is beyond amazing! Oh somebody pinch me, I'm daydreaming while blogging.

So I told my dad about my desire of going. I did the usual stuff everytime I want something pretty big. Did a nice presentation, showed him the photos from the website and told him how much I wanted to go. In the end, he teased me by saying this: "Oh... why go to Bora Bora when we have Kora Kora?" Erghhh I hate it everytime he does that!!! Let me tell you, Kora Kora is located in Minahasa. Been there but NOT AS STUNNING AS BORA BORA! And of course, way a lot cheaper (read: affordable).

But tell you what dad... you owe me a birthday gift. Not necessarily some time soon, one day dad. I don't mind taking it next year or the year after that. But I know exactly, what I want.

note: when writing this post, blogger was not in the sanest form. blogger suffers an acute obsession with islands, beaches and holidays. the only way to cure her is by granting her wishes. Dad, I hope you read this. :D

We're Back

OK so, we're back in town. Life's great there yet it's not worth risking important things. Truth be told, I'm really not particularly happy about coming back. Yes, I'm happy being with most of my friends and family, but deep down, I wish it were just for a visit. Just try to be a little understanding, and don't keep on saying how happy I must be to be back. Because I am not, and if I could, I'd still be back there or somewhere else. Then I've been spending massive amount of time with my precious dogs, Chewy and Lowy. Oh boy, here comes change of plan. I used to long to live abroad with my husband, make a little family out there. But now, I cannot leave my dogs. I just can't. I'm just gonna stay in the city, work my ass off and go abroad for vacations every once in a while (pretty often would be better though) :)

Will I change my mind again? I honestly don't know. Life in the city isn't that bad afterall, I'm just gonna try to get used it. Life is about moving on. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about taking chances. Because I know that the truth is, every time you take a big risk in your life, no matter how it ends up, you’re always glad you took it.

Flip Flops

I think everyone remembers each of their precious pairs of Havaianas. I bought my first Havainas in Bali, They were yellow Havaianas brazil flip flops and although they have seen better days before my dog Lowy chewed on them, I still have them and know that I will never have the heart to part with them.

Then few days ago, my other pair of Havaianas just broken. The white slim Havaianas bought in Melbourne, Australia. After 4 years, they decided to stop functioning. Just looking at them I remember all the adventures and showers that we’ve shared. Traveling through Hongkong and Singapore, countless trips along the coast of Bali and Manado, and just way too many memories in Jakarta. I'm keeping them for sentimental reason.

Although I will move with the times, and now have found that Ipanema flip flops are much more comfortable, my Havaianas pairs will always have a special place in my heart. What's your favorite flip flops?

Loving family, husband, good health and great friends :) I love you, Lord Jesus. Keep your blessings and love shining down on me and everyone. Guide my life, for every step I make, protect me.

Chewbacca & Lowbacca

These are my babies. They're mine. They are the bestest huskies ever to me & my hubby :) We love them to death.

Ms. Cathie


Meet Ms. Catherine, probably the cutest maltese i've ever encountered with! (this isn't even a matter of favoritism) Truth be told, I'm a fan of large breed dogs. Alas, this little girl got me. She is only 4 months old and she is already learning tricks! She sits and shakes hands; the cutest thing imaginable. She is the sweetest puppy, always cuddling with everyone and giving tons of kisses and has the greatest personality ever! She is very playful and loves to jump around. Very friendly pup. She always sleeps in my arms at night every time me and my husband visit my in laws' house. Putting her head on my right arm, like, all the time. Cathie belongs to my sister in law's bestfriend, Anty. Anty lives there too momentarily, I guess I'll miss Ms. Cathie once Anty moves out of the house. Anty's getting married sometime soon and will move out eventually, and will bring Ms. Cathie with her. I'm so going to miss her, but in the meantime, I'm gonna enjoy my moments with her.

She & Him

My Favorite Duo, EVER!

Pre-ordered their second album few weeks ago, should be arriving some time next week. Oh gawsh, I'm so excited! I just heard its entirety, this morning, a week prior to its release. I love the songs already!
