Jujur, saya tidak setuju

Jikalau keinginan untuk mendapat SESUATU yang baik itu menjadi motivasi untuk meningkatkan diri menjadi lebih baik, bukankah pamrih sebutannya? Itu kan, yang selama ini kita lakukan? Sesungguhnya, benarkah itu jika ditilik dari niat, yang memegang kemudi arah dan seharusnya paling murni, itu?

Faktanya…

Presiden Sukarno adalah orang yang mendapatkan tepuk tangan selama 7 menit dalam pidato pembukaannya di Konferensi Asia Afrika. Ya memang beliau bukan orang yang pertama mendapatkan kehormatan tersebut. Orang pertama dalam sejarah yang mendapat tepuk tangan selama itu adalah Adolf Hitler, tapi ya oleh pasukan tentaranya sendiri.

Nostalgic Movie

So, bobsled is one of sport, winter sport, in Olympics. Maybe we rather unfamiliar with them, and so do I. I knew about this kind of sport from movie name’s “Cool Runnings”. Since I watched it soooo long ago, I rather forget the detail story. Memory that remains is the sad ending but, yet, inspirational.

***

Sanka: So what are we going to name the sled?
Junior: How about, Talulah.
Rest of team: [Laughing] Talulah!
Sanka: Sounds like a two-dollar hooker. How’d you come up with that?
Junior: Hey, that’s my mother’s name. [Team converses in agreement]
Sanka: [to Derice] What’s it gonna be, star? What are the people gonna be screaming when Jamaica takes the hill?
Derice: I say we call it, ‘Cool Runnings.’
Junior: Beautiful, I like it.
Yul: Very strong.
Coach Irv: Nice, very nice, but… what exactly does it mean?
Derice: Cool runnings means, “peace be the journey.”
Team: [Toasting] Cool Runnings.
Messenger: Excuse me…
Sanka: [Toasting] To the man in the orange suit.
Sanka: [Toasting] To the messenger.
Coach Irv: [Ashen-faced, after reading the letter] We are officially…disqualified.

Irv: Derice, a gold medal is a wonderful thing, but if you’re not enough without it, you’ll never be enough with it.
Derice: Hey coach, how will I know if I’m enough?
Irv: When you cross that finish line, you’ll know.

Another groupies

I know I know I repost it for my own post (that’s why it called repost eh, Na? -________-) And maybe it’s so last year, but I don’t care. I heart them so much, it’s one of my favorite tune. And since it’s my personal blog, I more reaaallly don’t care what is inside your head, people (like there’s people read yours, Na. haha)
