Manual and Mr. Postman (still Rock!)

It’s a Digital age (sms, email, text, e-card etc) everything is heading to paperless and electronic but manual still rocks! I received two beautiful cards from two beautiful persons. First and Ied Mubarak card sent all the way from across the ocean made by Dian who created the card by herself, all manual (Two Thumbs up!). The other card is Chris, he and Rennie sent us a thank you note for attending their wedding, a humble card (as humble as Chris :D), with a candid photograph of Me and Ita chatting to the happy groom. Thanks guys! You all rock! Manual Rocks! and off course Mr. Postman you still rock also!

Typo? I don’t think so …

“Never too late to Action”

Prepositions..momok banget

What makes it lamer:
COMICSANS!!! Man, it’s NOT a DEFAULT comic font, even it has COMIC in it as a name! You should’ve use THISISDAREALCOMICFONT.ttf . You can download it for free anywhere at the internet. (if you know that there is a technology called Internet) D’oooooohhh…

And a tribal/inca fireman…nice effort…not bad laaaaah…

Note:
Harusnya

Never too late to act

or

Never too late for action

Action is a noun, you can’t use a noun with a “to” preposition because to are usually for verbs. Who ever the copywriter is..nice try, dude!

Simplicity?

Ternyata… Hidup Ini Sederhana…

Ada seorang anak kecil menjadi murid di toko sepeda. Suatu saat ada seseorang yang mengantarkan sepeda rusak untuk diperbaiki di toko tsb. Selain memperbaiki sepeda tsb, si anak ini juga membersihkan sepeda hingga bersih mengkilap. Murid-murid lain menertawakan perbuatannya. Keesokan hari setelah sang empunya sepeda mengambil sepedanya, si adik kecil ditarik/diambil kerja di tempatnya. Ternyata untuk menjadi orang yang berhasil sangat mudah,cukup punya inisiatif sedikit saja.

Seorang pelatih bola berkata kepada muridnya:
“Jika sebuah bola jatuh ke dalam rerumputan, bagaimana cara mencarinya?”
Ada yang menjawab: “Cari mulai dari bagian tengah.”
Ada pula yang menjawab: “Cari di rerumputan yang cekung ke dalam.”
Dan ada yang menjawab: “Cari di rumput yang paling tinggi.”
Pelatih memberikan jawaban yang paling tepat:
“Setapak demi setapak cari dari ujung rumput sebelah sini hingga ke rumput sebelah sana.”
Ternyata jalan menuju keberhasilan sangat gampang, cukup melakukan segala sesuatunya setahap demi setahap secara berurutan, jangan meloncat-loncat.

Katak yang tinggal di sawah berkata kepada katak yang tinggal di pinggir jalan:
“Tempatmu terlalu berbahaya, tinggallah denganku.”
Katak di pinggir jalan menjawab: “Aku sudah terbiasa, malas untuk pindah.”
Beberapa hari kemudian katak “sawah” menjenguk katak “pinggir jalan” dan menemukan bahwa si katak sudah mati dilindas mobil yang lewat.
Ternyata sangat mudah menggenggam nasib kita sendiri, cukup hindari kemalasan saja.

Ada segerombolan orang yang berjalan di padang pasir, semua berjalan dengan berat, sangat menderita, hanya satu orang yang berjalan dengan gembira.
Ada yang bertanya: “Mengapa engkau begitu santai?”
Dia menjawab sambil tertawa: “Karena barang bawaan saya sedikit.”
Ternyata sangat mudah untuk memperoleh kegembiraan, cukup tidak serakah dan memiliki secukupnya saja.
