Nge-sushi malem-malem …

Saking stressnya ama kerjaan, jd banyak deh yg mesti gue bawa pulang .. PR buat gue malem2 .. bukannya asik nonton tipi, malah mesti kerja … hiks ..

Jd abis nonton Germany Next Top Model (itu tuh yg dipandu sama Heidi Klum), gue br ngeh ada kerjaan nanggung yg mestinya gue kelarin di rumah .. (knp gue kelarin di rumah ? Gara2nya td ngabur n jalan2 ke Mariahilferstr jadinya kerjaan belon beres dehh hehehe ! shopping emang nomor satu !)

Akhirnya baru nyadar belakangan, baik gue maupun Matth belon sempet makan malem .. hiihhi untung ada ikan2 salmon jelek di kulkas (jelek ? iya .. abis gue ga doyan seafood2an !). Jadi deh gue nyoba bikin sushi … ancur tuh nasinya ga bisa dikepel2 bentuk bola (bukan bola sih, tp itu tuh biar kaya gumpalan2 peyang .. ). Jadinya yah untuk menyamarkan nasi jelek yg bentuknya ga jelas, ditutupin ama salmon segede2 gaban … Dicocol pake kecap asin Kikkoman (kl ga Kikkoman, ga berasa Japanisch Food .. iklan banget yaks !) heheh

Dan gue ? Gue yah nyeruput miso suppe aja dehh … Miso supnya bukan buatan ndiri (ngapain gue cape2 buat cuma buat gue sendirian 200ml ??) … Jadinya pake yg instan n tinggal tuang air panas dehh …

Udah ahh .. capek .. mau tidur … besok mesti kudu bangun pagi2 .. n kerjaan gue msh belonan kelar … huaa …

btw ps : ada yg tau nyari icon yg berbau database ? di Google banyakannya Shareware, mesti bayar gitu …

The Wish List

The book proceeds at a frantic pace, detailing the trials and tribulations of pals Lucy, Meg, Chloe and Tom. Main character Lucy is a sassy, witty, struggling actress with a weakness for shagging Tom. This would all be very well if Tom was more committed to Lucy, but Tom is a cynical kinda guy, and finds it hilarious to buy Lucy appalling flowers. Meg is a confident corporate lawyer, known for her no-nonsense attitude and cutting comments. She’s the original loner, and is quite sure that she doesn’t need a man in her life. Sweet Chloe is having trouble exercising her authority at work. She helpfully decides to sign the whole gang up for a team-building weekend, on a camping trip with new age guru Hank and a few random campers. This leads to side-splitting interactions with some of Australia’s top weirdoes around the campfire. There’s another hilarious scene in the book when the girls crash Tom and his “man’s night out”. Tom gets all prissy and uptight, while the girls get rowdy and start drinking the boys under the table. There is a lot of (understandable) lust for fellow Australian Hugh Jackman throughout the book. Lucy laments to Tom that Deborah Lee Furness is the owner of the meaning of life. This is because Deborah is married to Hugh Jackman, and he IS the meaning of life as far as Lucy (and La’Brooy) are concerned. La’Brooy’s style of writing is incredibly easy to read. She’s obviously got a wicked sense of humour, and has a fantastic turn of phrase. I particularly liked the bantering between characters in The Wish List. I loved Lucy’s reaction when she finds out Meg and Chloe have been placing bets on her sex life with on again/off again Tom. Lucy snaps, “Stop talking about me like I’m a greyhound”, to which Meg replies; “Lucy can’t be a racehorse. Tom will be riding her and he’s too tall to be a jockey”. Comments like these make the book a memorable read. The main character, Lucy, was great. Despite viewing the world through rose-tinted glasses, she does go through a transformation of sorts towards the end of the book. She has a neat perspective on life, even though she has a morbid fear of curtains. Overall, The Wish List is a guaranteed smile fest.
