Kendaraan andalan gw untuk bepergian kemana-mana adalah motor. Gw jarang banget menggunakan kendaraan umum untuk berpergian apalagi untuk pergi ke kantor, gw sama sekali belom pernah naek kendaraan umum ke kantor😛 Tapi ada hal yang sering mengganggu dalam kelancaraan gw berkendara motor minggu ini. Apakah hal yang mengganggu tersebut? yak benar sekali paku ato benda-benda tajam lainnya yang tersebar di jalanan Jakarta ini.

Parahnya minggu ini adalah minggu tersial gw berurusan dengan paku. Sudah 4 kali gw harus berurusan dengan tukang tambal ban. Hari senin ketika pulang kerja di sekitar Pasar Mainan perjalanan gw harus terhenti karena ban bocor. Hal yang paling bikin males adalah waktu itu sudah malam sekitar jam 19.00. Setelah diperiksa ternyata tidak ada masalah dengan paku, analisis sang penambal ban menyimpulkan bahwa ban dalem gw pecah. Entah kualitasnya bagus atau tidak, asli atau tidak karna sudah malam dan tidak ada pilihan lain lagi akhirnya gw putuskan untuk diganti dengan ban dalam baru yg dia tawarkan. Tapi disini hal yang paling bikin gw males adalah orang yang masang ban dalem sepertinya masih noob. It took about 15 minutes for them (yes there are 2 persons) to install the wheel.

Hari kamis kemarin gw mendapatkan combo bocor. Ketika perjalanan menuju kantor, ban gw bocor di Cipinang. Eh pas di kuningan ternyata ban gw bocor lagi. Puncaknya terjadi hari ini. Setelah nganterin adek gw ke sekolahnya, ga lama kemudian ban gw bocor lagi T_T karena sudah lelah dengan semua ini *halah* akhirnya hari ini gw putuskan untuk cuti dadakan untuk ganti ban belakang gw dengan ban tubeless. Karena sudah waktunya untuk di-service, sekalian aja gw service juga. Ditempat gw beli ban tubeless, engkohnya nawarin cairan yang dimasukin ke ban untuk menutup kebocoran kalo-kalo bannya kena paku. Tadinya gw menolak, karena untuk beli ban tubelessnya aja udah mahal, tapi mengingat peristiwa bocor yang sering menghantui gw minggu ini akhirnya gw beli juga tuh cairan.

Pada intinya jalanan di Jakarta itu sangatlah tidak nyaman. Selain kemacetan yang harus dihadapi, ranjau yang ada di jalan juga sangat banyak. Ranjau disini bukan hanya paku saja, tetapi lubang dan juga orang-orang bodoh yang suka menyebrang di jalan raya dengan brutal. Oleh karena itu jangan lupa berhati-hatilah dan jangan lupa berdoa sebelum berangkat agar selamat sampai tujuan😀

Yes, my first blog this year xD eh ternyata ngga deng😛

Btw, kenapa kalo ban bocor itu seringnya di ban belakang yah? kan dia belakang, err.. maksudnya ya taukan?😀

Setelah selesai menonton Jason Mraz pada hari pertama JJF 2009 di Exhibition Hall gw beristirahat sebentar di depan Hall yang lain. Di dalam Hall itu sedang ada pertunjukan yang lain yang cukup ramai juga. Gw duduk deket pintu masuk Hall tersebut. Tiba2 ada 2 orang yang bertanya kepada panita yang lagi duduk jagain di pintu depan Hall tersebut.

Mba2 Penanya 1: “Mas.. kalo Jason Mraz show-nya dimana yah”
Panita Dodol: “Oh disini mba.. masuk ajah…”

*duengg*

Kelemahan utama dari acara ini sepertinya adalah setiap panitia tidak dibekali oleh informasi jadwal acara dan tempatnya dimana aja. Okelah emang acaranya dalam satu hari itu banyak banget, akan sangat sulit bagi setiap panita untuk menghafalnya. Kalo emang sulit kenapa ga setiap panitia dibekali dengan rundown acara dan peta lokasinya. Pas gw dateng kesana gw juga sempet nanya ke panitianya dimana kah letak pertunjukan Jason Mraz. Dari 3 panitia yang gw tanyain semuanya ga ada yang tau -___-‘ padahal itu kan special show..

But overall, gw salut banget ama Panitianya bisa mengadakan acara skala internasional kayak gini selama 5 tahun terakhir =)

Dear Friends,

I just changed my GSM No to Telkomsel – 0812 10 950 XXX (see my facebook profile for more details). Please remove my old no 0817 9941 XXX and update it with my new one. The reason I changed it because I can’t stand anymore with the quality of service which was given by XL. It seems that they just concern on making new customers and don’t pay attention to their services.

Once again don’t forget to update my number. Thanks =)

Yesterday I went to wedding ceremony at BKOE on Raden Inten Street. I accompanied my mother to the wedding because my father was not in Jakarta. I was hoping to enjoy the food there because neither the groom nor the bride is my friend or family. So I thought, I wouldn’t meet any of my friends or families there.

After I congratulated the groom and the bride, I started to find my first target of food. I decided to eat empek-empek first. I stood before the line which looked like the queue at empek-empek booth. But it turned out that there’s another new line which was formed by some old men and women and tried to get into the queue. Well at least I thought they still waited on the line. But when the turn was on me, there’s this one old woman who suddenly came up right in front of me and took the food without waiting on the line. There’s nothing I could do about that I just took my food and went.

Then my next target was ice cream, I chose that because it’s less crowded. There’s no queue at the ice cream booth. People just gathered around and gave the cup to the person who served at the booth. I just waited patiently to get my turn. But as the time goes by, the booth was getting crowder and crowder. I was even thinking to cancel the ice cream. But when I saw my surrounding It was full of hungry people and I was stuck -___-‘ So I continued to struggle for the ice cream. The crowd became more brutal and brutal when there are 2 or 3 person took spoon and grabbed the ice cream by themselves. Luckily I was able to get out from there after i got my ice cream.

Almost all this brutal people are old women. I really hate when waiting on the same line with old women. They usually want to be treated exclusively just because they are old! May be it’s O.K. in some part like giving your chair in the train or bus to old women but not in the line case. I get a story from people who usually use trans Jakarta everyday. They said old women like to push or menyalip (ini bahasa inggrisnya apa yah) the line. In the end, I just hope this kind of attitude won’t be done by all of women that I know.

Yesterday I watched Iron Man in Setiabudi One. I don’t want to make any review about the movie because there are already many reviews about this movie on the internet. I just want to tell you story about annoying couple that sat next to me while I was watching the movie. Btw for you that have already watched Janji Joni might remember about 10 characteristic of movie viewers inside the studio. One of the characteristic is the noisy couple type where the girl always ask the guy about the things happened on the movie. Well I never think that this kind of type was exist until yesterday I saw and heard by myself.

Here are some quote from the noise couple:

The girl: “Loh itu orang yang tadi yah”
The guy: “Iya”

The girl: “Loh kok dia masih idup”
The guy: “Iya”

The girl: “Injaction itu apa sih”
The guy: “ga tau”

The girl: “itu kok bla.. bla.. bla.. bla..” (nanya dengan pertanyaan yang sangat panjang)
The guy: “hmmm..”

And many more…

I really amazed with the guy because he really was so patient and answered all his girlfriend question. Although he might just answer with yes or no =P

When I watch movie in the studio, there are few things that I really hate related to the viewers. First I hate if there are too many children inside because they can really make some big noise. Either they cry or laugh to much. Second I hate if there any teenager groups (especially when they all women) around my seat. They tend to always make not important comment about the movie. Third I hate when people come late and they cannot find their seat. After yesterday, I think I should add one more. I hate to sit next to the noisy couple.

Kali ini gw ingin memperkenalkan Sate Kambing Klaten Bapak Tulus. Sebenarnya sudah dari 2 minggu lalu pengen nulis di blog buat nge-review tempat ini cuman baru ada mood-nya sekarang =P Tempatnya sendiri terletak di sebelah kiri pinggiran jalan dari arah fly over deket mal citra ke arah kolonel sugiono. Disitu ada 3-4 tenda makanan yang berbeda. Tempatnya baru mulai buka dari sore hari sampai malam (ga tau tutupnya kapan, cuman gw pernah dateng jam 10 malem dan tempatnya masih buka)

Harga yang ditawarkan agak sedikit diatas rata-rata yaitu Rp. 16.000 per 10 tusuk sate. Namun jika dibandingkan dengan rasanya dan ukurannya cukup sebanding. Ukurannya tidak jauh lebih besar dari sate-sate kambing biasanya hanya sedikit lebih besar. Tentu saja yang menjadi unggulan dari sate klaten ini adalah rasanya. Gw jarang sekali bisa menemui sate kambing yang tidak tercium bau kambingnya ketika gw memakannya. Nah di sate kambing klaten ini gw hampir tidak bisa mencium bau kambingnya.

Karena pada postingan sebelumnya gw membahas dombrut, maka disini gw akan membandingkan head to head sate kambing klaten vs dombrut.

Harga

Sate Kambing Klaten: Rp. 16.000

Dombrut: Rp. 25.000 – 30.000

Tingkat Kebauan Sate (skala 1 – 10 dimana 10 adalah yang paling bau dan 1 tidak bau sama sekali)

Sate Kambing Klaten: 2

Dombrut: 4

Kualitas cara pembakaran satenya (skala 1 – 5 dimana 1 yang paling bagus)

Sate Kambing Klaten: 3

Dombrut: 1

Ukuran sate

Sate Kambing Klaten: Lebih besar sedikit dari sate kambing biasanya

Dombrut: Lebih besar sedikit dari sate kambing klaten

Kalo menurut pendapat gw sendiri sih gw lebih suka sate kambing klaten dari pada dombrut karena baunya itu. Lagipula harganya lebih murah dan tempatnya lebih deket dari rumah gw =D

Selamat mencoba =)

The effects of internet viral marketing throughout blogs are very huge nowadays. Last Friday, Maya asked me to join her and Bima to try Sate Marrangi in Duren Tiga. Since I already read kuya’s review, I became really interested to visit the place. At first I rejected Maya offered, because I knew that it was not a good idea to go to Mampang Street on Friday night. As we know the traffic jam at Mampang on the weekdays is so bad moreover on Friday night. But because of the effect from the review, finally I accepted Maya offered and the journey began =D

The meeting point was in Bima’s house. I told Maya to go to my office in Landmark so that we could go together by my motorcycle. But on the way Maya went to my office, she met Dikey. Long story short, Dikey joined our Kuliner Team and they went to Bima’s house by taxi as I rode on my bike there alone. Just like what I had been predicted, the traffic was like hell. It took 50 minutes for me to reach Mampang from Sudirman but it was nothing compared with the girls since they almost spent 2 hours.

After Maya and Dikey arrived at Bima’s house, we went to Maranggi by Bima’s car. Duren Tiga was not far away from Mampang but unfortunately the place already closed when we arrived T_T so we decided to go to Dombrut, the place that also being reviewed in kuya’s blog. Fortunately the place is not too far away from Duren Tiga. Dombrut is stand for Domba Garut and located in Ampera Street right in front of Medco Office.

This photo below is the first ordered food that we made =D

In this picture below were the specialty from Dombrut. Dombrut Satay Special with Fat (left upper side) and Dombrut Satay Special (right below side). What makes it special because they use has dalam (ini inggrisnya apa yah) for the special one which means the meat is more tender than the usual one. If you don’t like the fat you can just order Dombrut Satay Special.

The taste was just like the look. The meat was so tender and the way they roasted the meat was just perfect. They served the satay with ketchup. But too bad I still can smell the lamb. And for the tongseng and sop sumsum taste were also good but not that good. Nothing special from the taste.

What odd from this dinner in Dombrut was Maya ordered Indomie Goreng with Dombrut Topping -____-‘

The price is kinda expensive for me, but if I think again from the size of the meat and the taste I think is quit worth it. This are the price list of the food in Dombrut:

Dombrut Satay 25.000 IDR

Dombrut Satay Sp with Fat 27.0000 IDR

Dombrut Satay Sp 30.000 IDR

Sop Sumsum 20.000 IDR

Tongseng 21.000 IDR

In summary I think dombrut is one of the best satay in Jakarta that you should try *viral marketing detected* well see you on the next place, hopefully next time we will not become the follower of other review =P

There was no single lesson that I could get in this task. Usually in every single episode Apprentice I watch, I always try to digest the key word that really prominent in the task, but not this one. There is no challenging part in this task. The type of the task was almost the same like in the 1st and 4th episode.  

The task itself was really straight forward, they must ran horses and carriages in central park and the team who made the most money wins. Both teams already learned from their experiences in the previous task. They didn’t need to worry about the complicated things to win this task. All they had to do was, called their contacts and asked them to help them in the name of charity.

One thing that really interesting in this episode was no body got fired. This was the first time in Apprentice history. Donald Trump really had a difficult time when he had to eliminate one person from the group EMPRESSARIO because there was no single flaw in each person job.  They really could get along on each other as a team and each person did a great job. So because Donald Trump was felling charitable, he didn’t fire one person. In my opinion, he did that just because he could not find any reason to fire someone.

I hope the next episodes, Donald Trump will not give this kind of task anymore. This type of task can not show each person skills and knowledge. They might also already run out contacts =P For the last, I also hope Piers and Omarosa are on the next line to be fired xD

Wow I am really amazed with the men team, HYDRA in this task. After Donald Trump gave the task of creating a living window display for the new Vera Wang mattress product, my opinion was the same with Trace Adkins, they completely screwed. They didn’t even know who Vera Wang was until they have given this task. Fortunately, they successfully managed to follow the clue from Vera. The task itself was judged based on three things which are creativity, brand imaging, and entertainment value.

HYDRA managed to think outside of the box compare with EMPRESSARIO. They able to show the romantic things with showing Cleopatra and Marc Anthony live in the modern world. EMPRESSARIO itself was kind of playing safe and got the wrong direction. The bride thing was kind of giving the impression of playing safe and of course it wasn’t so creative. I think they got the brand imaging part and entertainment value, but not the creativity (oppose with George opinion that they only got the brand imaging part only).

From my opinion, there are two strong players in HYDRA. The first is Piers Morgan. Even though I don’t like his leadership in the previous episode (5th), but he gave a great contribution to his team. In this task for example, he able to get what kind of symbolic thing that this product wanted to emphasize from the interview in the executive meeting. And the second is of course Trace Adkins. He always can get a great and strong slogan. He is the creative brain of HYDRA. No wonder if he can make so many hits single on the top of the country music chart.

In summary, the key word that really prominent in this episode was creativity. Try to think outside of the box, and the men team did.

Sebenernya yang salah itu si penumpang apa supirnya yah? kalo si penumpang ga ngeberhetiin di tengah jalan, si supir juga ga bakal berhenti sih. Harusnya sih nunggu di halte, tapi haltenya mana? Apa lagi-lagi ini salah Pemerintah? Haiyah 5 tahun lagi Jakarta kayak apa yah..
