What a Joy, what a Life, what a Chance! October 28, 2008

So I say
Thank you for the music
The songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it?
I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance, what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

From Mamma Mia! – Thank You for the Music

jco-ing, sushi-ing, swim-(m)ing June 18, 2007

Filed under: me — ayumurti @ 6:16 pm

The weekend started on Friday night. Went to J-Co to eat yummy donuts at Citos with friends. So good to think it was finally weekend while munching the donuts and chatting. On Saturday, as usual went to choir practising. After that, I went sushi-ing at my favorite sushi place, Poke Sushi. Super yummy! We chose the ‘all you can eat’ program and ordering sushi/sashimi all the time. On Monday, woke up late in tne morning err… it actually almost noon, doing this and that, and went swimming. So so good. I haven’t swam for couple of months and this one definitely triggered me to swim more often. I need it too to increase my lung capacity (for singing). Less than 2 months to the choir competition. Semangat!

 

these couple days June 15, 2007

On my birthday night, I & my family went to see French Contemporary Circus 9.81 at Amphitheater Erasmus Huis. It was a delightful performance. One man show doing climbing movement in a beautiful way. It’s good to see that a human body could move so softly yet powerful to do that. The music was good too. Sort chill out music which went nicely with the body movements. After seeing the show, we went to have late dinner at our favorite ayam goreng stall in blok m. It’s good to get together, eat dinner, and talk about things. I had a good time and I’m happy :)

Last night, I went to the opening of “Camouflage” the artworks of Hamad Khalaf at Cemara 6 Gallery. The artworks use the idea of connecting War and Archaeological Artifacts from Greek mythology. Khalaf who originally from Kuwait, painted them on big size fiber plates and artifacts from war, such as helmets, boots, gloves. It’s quite amusing to see them as if they were truly Greek mythology artifacts.

I’m sorry I don’t have pictures for the stories above. I hope the links will do. Have a good weekend everyone!

 

Don’t Stop Me Now June 13, 2007

Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive
And the world I’ll turn it inside out yeah
I’m floating around in ecstasy
So don’t stop me now
Don’t stop me
’cause I’m having a good time
Having a good time

(Don’t Stop Me Now – QUEEN)

Today is my birthday! The good thing about birthday is when your family and friends whose dear to you could share it with you. Also the good vibe of the day makes me smile all the time since I woke up this morning, err corrected…, since last night :)

Last night I went to see Riri Riza’s newest film 3 Hari Untuk Selamanya at Blitz Jakarta. Before we saw the film, we listened to the live performance of Float, the music group for the film soundtrack. They played good. I know their music since 2005 and really enjoy listening to it. The film was good, especially the script. It was a kind of festival film type, yet we could relate with the story. The story itself is extraordinary for indonesian people since it tells about sex attraction in a straightforward way, beatifully made ofcourse. Ah, I should write a totally different blog entry to review the film, hehe.

Anyway, I spent the first hour of June 13th on the way back home after seeing a good movie, went with good friends, had a good sleep. I plan to have a good time today and I will :)

 

Time Capsule November 10, 2006

Filed under: me — ayumurti @ 9:34 am

I sent a picture and it got approved by Yahoo Time Capsule :D

The time capsule consists of words, pictures, videos, sounds, and drawings from people around the world. With ten themes from human experience. They are: Love, Sorrow, Anger, Faith, Beauty, Fun, Past, Hope, Now, and You. This time capsule has been sealed and entrusted to Smithsonian Folkways Recordings based in Washington D.C., officially taking its place in history. It became a digital legacy of our times.

This project is created by Jonathan Harris, an artist working primarily on the internet. I really like his idea about creating legacy, keepsakes for the future. Mementos to represent our life in the human history.

I choose “You” as the theme. Describing ‘who are you?’. And this is what my contribution look like.

Oya, today is my late father birthday. Miss him so much :)
