what’s on, Ophelia?

i have a lot in mind. i need paperwork. need something after me. need a project to be done.

lucky me, a friend of mine -who’s also a storyteller for young children- asked me to join him and write a story. ouuu won’t say no to such offer. so there… a head of a story is waiting for its tail to be found.

then, i’m on a hunt for Kwaliteit 2. ever heard of it? hahahaha… mwahahahaha… even the title makes me go gaga. Dennis Adhiswara wrote, directed, and produced the film in 2004. if you get to watch it, you’ll know that it’s really personal. it’s very ‘Dennis’. you know the feeling when you have this disturbing thing in mind and need to get it out of the system? that’s what it is. he probably wasn’t thinking of the commercial post. plus, Fauzi Baadilla is in it! man, he’s hot :p i watched the rented VCD in the same year and quickly made everyone in the house watched it too. even my mom. and she LOVED it. mwahahaha. we laughed our heads off together and told everyone to watch it. go and take a look on YouTube. you’ll probably find the taste of Stephen Chow in it. if you feel like you need to relax, watch Kwaliteit 2. although the moral is simple but ngakak is guaranteed!

then, Java Jazz Festival is on again. and i’m missing it again. this year, if i could be there, i’d go for Jane Monheit. oh yes i love her. very much. that smoky vibe of her voice is so relaxing. so lounge-y. beautiful voice from a very beautiful lady. to cure the absence of myself in the event, i have her filled my playlist from top to bottom. one of my favorites is More Than You Know from the 30’s that she resurrected with her own style. oh it makes me sigh…

Whether you are here or yonder
Whether you are false or true
Whether you remain or wander
I am growing fonder of you

Even though your friends forsake you
Even though you don’t succeed
Wouldn’t I be glad to take you
Give you the break you need

More than you know, more than you know
Man of my heart, I love you so
Lately I find, you’re on my mind
More than you know

Whether you’re right, whether you’re wrong
Man of my heart, I’ll string along
I need you so
Much more than you’ll ever know

Loving you the way that I do
There’s nothing I can do about it
Loving may be all you can give
But baby I can’t live without it

Oh how I’d cry, oh how I’d cry
If you got tired, and said good-bye
More than I’d show
More than you’d ever know

and, for the last weeks, i find that cooking is very delightful (though the result is not so spectacular😀 ), and everytime my hubby told me they were yummy, i went seventh-heaven but played it cool😀 nothing beats the feeling that you’ve brightened your beloved one’s day with your cooking🙂
