Dear John

Starring: Channing Tatum & Amanda Seyfried

While John is on leave in his hometown, he finds Savannah, a college student visiting the town. Although love was unexpected, it doesn't mean they didn't find it. With the knowledge of John having to leave for the army, their love still lives. They write letters to each other.

Until one time, Savannah doesn't write a letter anymore to John. John is very confused, why Savannah disappears. Then he comes to her house to meet her and ask why she doesn't write or even call him. Then Savannah tells John the truth, that she is married with her friend, Tim. Tim has cancer. He has a son, Alan, who suffers from autism. "Tim was sick. He was sick and he needed me. He needed me to help him with Alan, with everything. I was alone and had no idea of what I was doing. You don't think I've tried? I picked up the phone a thousand times to try to call you."

Savannah didn't plan this. She didn't know that it was gonna happen to her, but it did. She had no choice. Looking at Savannah's kindness, John forgives her and understand the situation.

Here are some shots from the movie.

My Sister's Keeper

Starring: Cameron Diaz & Abigail Breslin

"When I was a kid, my mother told me that I was a little piece of blue sky that came into this world because she and Dad loved me so much. It was only later that I realized that it wasn't exactly true. Most babied are coincidences. I mean, up in spaces you got all these souls flying around looking for bodies to live in. Then, down here on earth, two people have sex or whatever and bam, coincidence. Sure you hear all these stories about how everyone plans these perfect families but the truth is that most babies are products of drunken evenings and lack of birth control. They're accidents. Only people who have trouble making babies actually plan for them. I, on the other hand, am not a coincidence. I was engineered. Born for a particular reason. A scientist hooked up my mother's eggs and my father's sperm to make a specific combination of genes. He did it to save my sister's life. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if Kate had been healthy. I'd probably still be up in heaven or wherever waiting to be attached to a body down here on Earth. But coincidence or not, I'm here."

That was Anna said in this movie. Yes, she was born to be her sister's keeper. Her sister, Kate, has cancer. The doctor uses Anna's leukocytes, granulocytes, and bone marrows and donated them to Kate's body, just to make Kate stays alive.

But one day, Anna's suing her parents in the aim of medical emancipation. She said that she wants to live normally, just like any other girls. Her mother, Sara, gets angry, of course. She really can't believe why Anna doesn't want to help Kate anymore.

But then the truth revealed, in the court. Kate is the one who pushed Anna to do that, because she just want to die. It is hard for Sara, but then finally she can understand and let Kate go in peace.

Here are some shots from the movie. This is when Kate try to show her despair to her Mom.

Thinking of You

Comparisons are easily done
Once you've had a taste of perfection
Like an apple hanging from a tree
I picked the ripest one
I still got the seed

You said move on, where do I go
I guess second best is all I will know

Cause when I'm with him, I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if you were the one who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I was looking into your eyes

You're like an Indian summer in the middle of winter
Like a hard candy with a surprise center
How do I get better once I've had the best
You said there's tons of fish in the water
So the waters I will test

He kissed my lips, I taste your mouth
He pulled me in, I was disgusted with myself

You're the best and yes I do regret
How I could let myself let you go
Now the lesson's learned
I touched it I was burned
Oh I think you should know

Cause when I'm with him, I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if you were the one who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I was looking into your eyes

Oh won't you walk through and bust in the door
And take me away
Oh no more mistakes
Cause in your eyes I'd like to stay...

Boss-boss Pada Perang, Gue Yang Kena Imbasnya..

Kemarin, hari Rabu, tanggal 3 Februari 2010 adalah hari tersial gue selama gue kerja di kantor gue yang baru ini. Jadi begini ceritanya..

Gue sebelumnya ditempatin di Dept. Produksi. Udah enak-enak disitu, tiba-tiba Manufacturing Director gue nyuruh gue pindah ke Dept. PPIC (Production Planning and Inventory Control). Gue masih belum punya ruangan di departemen gue yang baru, jadi gue masih "numpang" di ruangan Plant Manager gue. Yang namanya numpang yaa pasti gak enak lah. Apalagi numpangnya di ruangan Plant Manager. Gak leluasa banget. Setelah kira-kira sebulan gue numpang di ruangan Plant Manager, akhirnya Manufacturing Director gue nyuruh gue pindah ke sebuah ruangan yang masih kosong. Ruangan itu nantinya bakalan jadi ruangannya Dept. PPIC, dan bakalan diisi 4 orang, termasuk gue. Tapi karena yang 3 orang itu masih sibuk sama kerjaannya dan belum bisa pindahan, makanya gue duluan yang pindah kesitu. Dan alhasil, gue duduk sendirian di ruangan itu.

Terus, pas sekitar jam setengah 1 siang, tiba-tiba orang-orang sales&marketing pada masuk ke ruangan gue. Gue kaget donk, koq tiba-tiba mereka pada masuk ke ruangan gue rame-rame. Terus reaksi gue langsung berdiri dan nanya ke mereka, "mau dipake ya ruangannya?". Terus mereka jawab "iya". Terus tiba-tiba boss mereka masuk dan ngomong ke gue dengan nada tinggi "MBAK, INI MASIH RUANGAN SALES&MARKETING. JADI MBAK SAYA MINTA KELUAR!". Gue makin kaget donk, koq tiba-tiba gue diusir, padahal yang nyuruh gue pindah itu kan Manufacturing Director gue langsung. Emangnya dia gak tau apah? Terus gue langsung beres-beres, dan gue nanya ke dia, "Tapi saya boleh ninggalin sebagian barang-barang saya disini kan, Pak?".


Gila! Gue langsung pucet pas dia ngomong gitu. Langsung pengen nangis! Mana gue diliatin lagi sama semua orang sales&marketing di ruangan itu. Akhirnya gue angkut semua barang gue, terus gue keluar dari ruangan itu. Terus, gue langsung ke ruangan Plant Manager gue. Plant Manager gue kaget, koq gue balik ke ruangan dia lagi, dan bawa barang-barang gue semua. Terus, gue ceritain deh kejadian yang tadi. Terus, kata dia, "Ya udah, kamu disini aja dulu". Akhirnya gue duduk di ruangan dia dengan tampang masih shock. Ya iya lah shock, gue gak salah apa-apa, tiba-tiba dimarahin.

Hmm agak sedikit flash back nih yaa, dulu itu kantornya sales&marketing masih jadi satu sama manufacturing. Dan ruangan gue yang tadi itu dulunya salah satu ruangan punya sales&marketing. Tapi akhirnya sales&marketing dipisahin kantornya di satu gedung sendiri di daerah Jakarta Selatan. Jadi ada Head Office (Manufacturing Site) dan ada Sales&Marketing Office.

Dan kemarin itu, orang-orang sales&marketing dateng ke Head Office buat meeting bareng sama bagian Manufacturing. Tapi, ternyata, pas lagi meeting, mereka berantem karena suatu masalah. Dan katanya sih berantemnya parah banget, sampe keluar kata-kata kotor. Terus, mereka gak mau kalo ruangan itu dipake sama orang lain selain dari bagian sales&marketing. Dan Manufacturing Director gue juga belum ngomongin ke bagian sales&marketing, kalo ruangan itu sekarang jadi ruangan PPIC. Jadi yaa jelaslah sekarang, kenapa gue diusir dari ruangan itu.

Setelah kejadian itu, boss-boss gue, termasuk Manufacturing Director gue, langsung pada nanya ke gue, "Kamu tadi diomongin apa? Kamu gak apa-apa kan?". Mereka kayaknya gak enak sama gue, karena gue jadi korban. Yaa gue sih jawabnya gak apa-apa, padahal mereka gak tau aja, tadi gue udah ketakutan banget.

Ckckck.. Begitulah kalo boss-boss lagi perang. Jangan deket-deket deh mendingan. Kalo gak, bakalan kena imbasnya kayak gue.
