Vintage Print Ads

Okay so, I love old stuffs. Check! Unconsciously have a separate folder for old photos in my iPhoto. Check! Love Mad Men? Check! ---> you really have to watch the Mad Men series to understand my last statement. And yes, I love Mad Men series. Totally unrelated statements for random people but me. These vintage print ads below convinced me that Indonesia had its own "Mad Men" even before declaring independence day in 1945.

Seven Wonders of the World

Sharing is caring.
"A group of students was asked to list what they thought were the present “Seven Wonders of the World.” Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most votes:
1. Egypt’s Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter’s Basilica
7. China’s Great Wall
While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The girl replied, “Yes, a litte. I couldn’t quite make up my mind because there were no many.”

The teacher said, “Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help.” The girl hesitated, then read, “I think the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’ are:
1. To see
2. To hear
3. To touch
4. To taste
5. To feel
6. To laugh
7. And to love.”
The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop. The things we overlook as simple and ordinary, and that we take for granted, are truly wondrous! A gentle reminder that the most precious things in life cannot be built by hand or bought by man."

We Saved Lady Genit

ew days ago my mother, husband and myself went for groceries shopping then in the parking lot, we saw this poor cute puppy was kicked and meanly harassed by this security guy. It only took few seconds for us to decide that we're going to take the puppy home with us. The pitch black puppy is a girl, half labrador half local dog, around 1.5 months old. She's a very cheerful and playful puppy, I couldn't help but wonder why people could possibly have the heart throwing away a puppy like this? 

However, as soon as we got home we had an unpleasant event. My huskies didn't take the adoption very nicely. My husky girl went hysterical and howling like crazy and have this killer look. Twitter came in handy, I tweeted about her and asked whether anyone wants to adopt her. Miracles happens (Thank you Lord Jesus). Long story short, puppy officially adopted :) Yay! 

The next day, we brought her to her new home, this lovely family warmly welcomed her. I couldn't be more happier and relieved! And what a small world it is, my father is actually friends with the head of that family. Wow. God is good. 

If one day I cross path with another stray puppies, I'd definitely wouldn't hesitate to take them and try finding them a family. Doing it over and over again? No problem! It feels so good helping animals in trouble, somehow it makes me feel like a very useful person :) And it makes me happy beyond belief. And oh, if you want to adopt stray dogs, or found stray/abandoned dogs, please contact below:

And oh, yesterday, the new owner, Tasha Asmarini that is, posted this on my facebook wall: "The pup is doing good.. playing all the time.. eat a lot.. we call her lady genit". Oh I'm so happy for you Lady Genit! 

Lady Genit, the night we found her

Let me out of this box!









On her way to her new home! :)

Wally Hermès Yachts

My father is a yacht enthusiast for many years, just because he had a swell time yachting with his friends in Monte-Carlo back then. And no, we're not billionaires and we do not own any yachts, we could only wish for one and admire beautiful and extravagant yachts. My father subscribes to "Asia Pacific Boating" Magazine (yes, he makes us all glance at the magazine, all.the.time.) long story short, we're love-strucked by this prototype of a very stunning new yacht by Wally Hermès Yachts. We immediately head over heels in love with ... this... 

*blogger is now daydreaming and unable to get back to reality for couple hours now...
