unruly kids or unruly parents? -- part two


... Who knows that the chance to take revenge came real soon? But at that time I decided not to seize the opportunity! :(

The 7 Dwarfs is an animated movie of which plot wasn't thought througouhly, I suspect. A main character that's so awkward to the point that it became annoying. Inconsistent drawing style. Stereotypes. Lame joke. Add to that slow pace. And I mean slooow I could just sleep on my chair.

But you know what? About half of people in the cinema were adults. Seeing from experience, I'd anticipate at least some children whines now and then, and if I got lucky, one or two top-of-the-lungs screams.

... Instead I experience silence. Peace. Not a single mouth spoke. They are too mesmerized by the jolly characters on screen.

Yes children can behave when it's a show dedicated to THEM, not some R-rated or PG-13 movies.

... I still regret not getting back to the kids by covering the projecting window on the back with a gum or something. >:)

unruly kids or unruly parents?


I just witnessed children's bad behavior escalated to a whole new level. During a movie, they utilize two mini-kentongans as swords and began running up and down the aisle, fighting.

Let me tell you about kentongan. A kentongan is a traditional noisy wooden instrument native to Javanese people that has can be used in many ways, none of them is to disturb movie-goers. It can be used as genre-specific music instruments, but it usually is used to alert people in the event of natural disasters, robbery, etc. If there's nothing wrong, night guards will just hit the kentongan to indicate the time of the night.

Yes you read that correct, there are parents who let their children slip into the cinema carrying things equivalent to loud alarm clocks that wake us up every morning. One for each child. One. For each child.

Whole cinema has been shooshing them to be quiet, but they do not listen. And no one of the parents got up from their seat to discipline their children.

What imb*cile parents bring their 4 and 5 years old, respectively, to watch a Taken sequel, anyway? It's a movie full of violence!

There were more or less 30 men and women who were harnessing ourselves from being completely savage to other people's children. Sitting among them, I had a strange idea to follow that stupid family home and make noises when those children are trying to watch their favorite show, as a revenge.

carlo rino for the first time


I just bought Carlo Rino Exchange shoes from their oultet in Tunjungan Plaza. They gave me 75% discount. Can you believe it? Me neither!

I'm so happy right now I could fly! n__n

By the way, why do lines (usually clothing lines) use 'exchange' in their brand names? I mean, it's not like they'll accept salt or turnips in exhange of a pair of pumps. Or do they actually accepts them and I'm the only one who doesn't know about it? o.O

bittersweet for the first time


Fishing for 70K++ from my purse, I'd never felt this cheated upon my whole life.

Rice and chicken karage, the chicken tasted bland, the sauce is scarce. Ice cream with such posh name: Lady in White tasted like McDonald's vanilla one. Lemon tea was over-diluted, no taste of lemon or tea whatsoever. Nasi lemak with fried chicken, my tastebud only recognize its hotness, no flavor at all. Top that with longest serving time in Sidoarjo. Definitely not coming back.

some curious questions about redmi


So I did bought a RedMi. Two questions:
1. How do we turn off auto rotate in RedMi's Gallery?
2. How do we turn off RedMi's auto correct in Notes?

the downside of marriage life -- part three


The decisions made by your partner affects you! Especially when your partner is a procrastinator, or at least slightly better at procrastinating than you do.

Let me tell you a story. A man promised his wife that he will do something, for example paying an electricity bill, but he kept stalling. The wife's waking up from nightmares of the deadline of the deed passed. If an electricity bill's particular deadline is passed, the home will not be supplied electricity anymore.

No, it is not because the money's too tight, I've told you the husband procrastinates and the electricity bill is just an example. What do you think the nightmares will affect the wife's health?
