I went to a internet cafe in the morning to surf the net (as you know, my computer was broken down and I had to get i serviced >> but now it's fine, yaayy.... :D). While I was browsing the net, my mum called me and she asked me to go to Jakarta the next day (last Sunday) to go the the Scholarship Expo at Sampoerna Tower, I said yes and she reserved the tickets.
That afternoon, my friends and I went to Plaza Ambarrukmo. We went there at 2 PM and planned to watch The Da Vinci Code at Cinema 21. We arrived at 2.30 PM and went directly to Cinema 21, but unfortunately, there were so many people there who also wanted to watch some movies!! Ok, then we had to stand in line for 45 minutes (it was still 2.5 hours to the show, and we almost didn't get any seat.. :( ). Then, while we were waiting for the film, we ate at Qua-Li Restaurant (waa, sorry I forgot to take the food's pics (again)). The film started at 5 PM and it was good. Although if we haven't read the novel yet, we probably won't understand the story, but for me it's still good. The film was 2 hours 15 minutes long, and after that we went back home. Then I watched Indonesian Idol, and again, Indonesia got it correct. Alice (the worst female contestant this season) and Brinnet were voted off.
I got up pretty early at 4.30 AM in the morning. At 5.15 AM my mum and I went to the airport (the plane took off at 6.30 AM). Well, the plane (Adam Air) was a little late that morning, and we took off at 7 AM. At 7.50 AM we landed at Soekarno-Hatta Airport Jakarta and had breakfast at KFC there (actually I had already been full at that time but because it was still 1.5 hours to 10 AM, so that's okay). At 9 AM we went to Sampoerna Tower in Kuningan, and unfortunately there was labour demonstration in front of The MPR-DPR Building in Senayan. There were so many people wearing white clothes riding some trucks or cars and then blocked the road (my taxi was in the freeway, so the traffic was still normal). Then, we arrived at 9.30 AM and still had to wait until the expo started, but becasue the demo, the expo started at 10.30 AM, 30 minutes late... :( Well, finally it openned, and what was inside?? I was disappointed, below my expectation. It was juts like the expos here in Yogyakarta, nothing different, just the place... :( I got nothing there... :( (actually nothing is a very strong word, at least now I know that there are so many scholarships for the post-graduate degree). Then we went to Plaza Semanggi until 2.40 PM, and went to the airport. We arrived at 3.30 PM, and actually our flight departed at 5.20 PM, but because there was one other flight to Jogjakarta which departed at 3.50 PM, we asked to change flight, and it was granted. So, we ran to the gate (we just had only about 10 minutes to run from the check-in area to the gate which was so far away from the check-in area) and we arrived on time. But the flight was late again... (if we had known that, we didn't have to run to the gate). It departed at 4 PM and arrived at 5 PM in Jogjakarta (Jogja was raining at that time, and the runway was wet, because of that the plane didn't land smoothly...).
P.S: Tomorrow I'm going to Bali, so probably I won't be online for 1 week...

Aku pergi ke warnet pagi harinya (semua pasti tahu deh kalo komputerku rusak dan aku harus nge-servis nih komputer >> tapi akhirnya sekarang dah gapapa... . Yeeesss... :D). Waktu aku lagi di warnet, aku ditelpon mamaku kalo besoknya (hari Minggu kemarin) aku disuruh pergi ke Jakarta untuk pergi ke Scholarship Expo di Sampoerna Tower, aku bilang iya, dan trus dipesenin tiket pesawat.
Siangnya, aku sama temen-temenku pergi ke Plaza Ambarrukmo dan berencana untuk nonton The Da Vinci Code di Cinema 21. Kita sampe jam 2.30 sore adn langsung pergi ke Cinema 21, tapi sayangnya, ternyata ada banyak banget orang yang juga mau nonton film disana!! Ok, trus akhirnya kita ngantri tiket selama 45 menit (masih 2,5 jam sebelum show mulai padahal dan kita hampir nggak dapet tempat duduk... :( ). Trus sambil nunggu filmnya mulai, kita makan di Restoran Qua-Li (waa, sorry aku lupa ngambil foto makanannya (lagi)). Filmnya mulai jam 5 sore dan bagus koq. Biarpun kalo misalnya kita belum baca novelnya mungkin kita nggak bakalan ngerti jalan ceritanya. tapi untuk aku bisa dikatakan bagus koq.Panjang filnya 2 jam 15 menit, dan habis itu kita pulang. Trus aku nonton Indonesian Idol, dan kembali, Indonesia memilih dengan benar. Alice (kontestan perempuan terjelek musim ini) dan Brinet tersisih.
Aku bangun lumayan pagi tuh jam 4.30. Jam 5.15 pagi aku sama mamaku pergi ke airport (pesawatnya terbang jam 6.30 pagi). Hmm, pesawatnya (Adam Air) agak terlambat kemarin pagi, baru berangkat jam 7 pagi tuh. Jam 7.50 mendarat di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta Jakarta trus makan pagi deh di KFC Bandara (sebenernya aku dah kenyang sih pas itu, cuma kan masih 1,5 jam sebelum acaranya mulai, jadi gpp deh). Jam 9 pagi kita pergi ke Sampoerna Tower di Kuningan, dan syangnya ternyata ada demonstratsi buruh lagi tuh di Gedung MPR-DPR di Senayan. Banyak banget orang-orang pake baju putih-putih naik beberapa truk atau mobil menutupi jalan (taksinya di jalan tol sih, jadi ya gapapa, lalulintasnya masih normal). Trus kita sampai jam 9.30 pagi dan masih harus menunggu sampe pamerannya dibuka, tapi karena tuh demo, jadi pameran baru dibuka jam 10.30, terlambat 30 menit... :( Akhirnya dibuka tuh pamerannya, dan apa yang ada di dalam?? Aku kecewa berat deh, di bawah harapanku. Cuma kayak pameram-pameran biasa di Yogyakarta, hampir nggak ada yang berbeda, kecuali tempatnya... :( Aku nggak dapat apa-apa disana... :( (sebenernya nggak dapat apa-apa adalah kata-kata yang keras juga sih, paling nggak kan aku tahu kalo banyak banget beasiswa untuk pendidikan S2). Trus kita pergi ke Plaza Semanggi sampe jam 2.40 siang, habis itu langsung pergi ke airport. Kita sampe jam 3.30 siang dan kan sebenernya pesawatnya bakal berangkat jam 5.20 tuh, tapi karena ada penerbangan lain yang jam 3.50 siang, kita minta ganti pesawat, dan ternyata bisa. Jadi, kita lari-lari tuh ke gate-nya (jarak dari gate ke tempat check-in kan lumayan jauh juga tuh, padahal waktunya tinggal sekitar 10 menit) dan kita sampe tepat waktu. Tapi pesawatnya telat lagi... :( (tau gitu kan nggak lari-lari). Berangkatnya jam 4 sore dan jam 5 sampe di Jogjakarta (pas itu Jogja lagi hujan, jadi landasan pacunya juga basah, dan pesawat nggak mendarat dengan mulus...).
P.S: Besok aku pergi ke Bali, jadi mungkin gabisa ol selama seminggu tuh...
