"never mind i'll find someone like you!"

30 Oct 2011

With all respect, I don't really like Adele's voice. I have some reasons, but I don't wanna to tell you right here. However, I'm so much in love with her song, Someone Like You. This morning, I tried to look up for the official music video for the song on YouTube but couldn't find any. (Is there an official music video for the song?) Instead, I found these covers for the song. They're all awesome! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do :)









Which one is your favourite?

Sincerely,
Putdar.

i'm officially 20 years young now

28 Oct 2011

On October 26, I woke up to this note lying on my door:


Yes. That day wasn't only my 2nd anniversary with Mr Boyfriend, but also my 20th birthday. I'm so thrilled that I'm already on my 20s right now. Man oh man, I'm no longer a teenager. Haha!

The day was quite normal. I had to go classes and BlowUP! weekly meeting. Little did I know, my friends from BlowUP! and Mr Boyfriend had planned a surprise for me. I was talking on the phone with Mr Boyfriend's mum, and when we finished talking, I turned around and they shouted "Happy birthday!" They had this little cake with a candle, and two presents: one from BlowUP! and the other from Mr Boyfriend. The gang gave me an elephant and Mr Boyfriend gave me a batik shirt, which matches his own shirt. Haha!



Thank you, guys! I love you!!!

Sincerely,
Putdar.

PS. I got another award. I'll post about them as soon as possible :D

a confession: i fall in love again

26 Oct 2011

For all the twenty years of my life, I have never felt this way before. I have told myself a million times not to put myself in big trouble, to just play safe and carefully. But right now I feel like I'm not me anymore. I'm not the one I used to be. And now I have a confession to make:
I fall in love again.
With the same boy.
I fall in love again and again.
For the past two years.


Happy anniversary, Ayek! Two years of laughters. Two years of adventures. Two years of love. Two years of togetherness.
Two years and going strong.
I love you. 
 

Sincerely,
Putdar.

I cannot say that I was 100% happy during my trip to Lampung for the Nationwide E-Fest 2011. The competition itself sucked a lot and I hate the committee of Scrabble Competition (I don't want to say a name). But the city tour was quite fun! We went to a beach in Southern Lampung and my skin got a bit darker (which is fine. Haha!)

So, how was the blogosphere while I was away?

Sincerely,
Putdar.

PS. I'm trying to take my time to reply to your emails and comments. Please be patient :)

so this is goodbye

12 Oct 2011


Whoa! 56 followers? Really? I haven't checked my dashboard for the last few days and now I find out that I have 56 followers now. Yay! Oh and hello, by the way... My name's Putdar. Thanks for following my blog :)

In this post, I'd like to tell y'all that I'm leaving for Lampung tonight. I'll stay there for 6 days. I'll be back next Tuesday. See you! ;)

Sincerely,
Putdar.

PS. I'm going to reply to your comments as soon as possible.
PPS. I got an award! :D

this saturday through retro camera

8 Oct 2011


If you have an Android phone, then you should have Retro Camera installed on it. Why you might ask? Because it's totally awesome! Oh and PS, it's freeeeee... *die*

Today, my family went to Lembur Awi to visit a relative of my dad. Usually, it only takes an hour or so to get there, but there was traffic jam everywhere, so Dad decided to take a longer route, via Soreang. We got to see beautiful scenery all the way to Lembur Awi and I couldn't stop myself from taking pictures. And boy is Retro Camera so amazing!

How is your weekend so far?

Sincerely,
Putdar.

tumblr, please...

7 Oct 2011


This morning, I got up at 4.30am and took a bath. At 5am, I already dressed up. But then I thought I might need another hour to sleep (as I only got 4 hours of sleep last night since I stayed up until 12.30). As stupid as I was, I forgot to set up my alarm. I woke up at 7.47. I had a class at 8.50 and I needed at least 30 minutes to dress up (again) and an hour to go to campus.

Long story short, I arrived at 9.53. I knew the teacher's assistant would let me in, but I decided not to even try. Everyone in the class would laugh at me for showing up that late. I couldn't take it. So there I was, sitting next to a big window, looking at the parking lot.

I really have to stop my bad habit of staying up late at night, Tumblr-ing. Please set me free from your spell, Tumblr!

Sincerely,
Putdar.

it's ok thursday

6 Oct 2011

Its Ok Thursdays


After weeks of only being a reader of this link up feature in Neely's blog, I finally decided to give it a shot. So, yeah...

I think it's ok...
+ to try to join this link up
+ to still try even if you don't have any idea of what to write, actually...
+ to want to be a model even though you don't have a 'camera face'
+ to send your pictures to an online model hunt to pursue said dream above
+ to keep a secret to yourself
+ to keep clicking 'next page' on your Tumblr dashboard even though you know it's already past your bedtime
+ to stalk a friend's photos on Facebook just because you love her style

I think that is all for this week. Do you link up with Neely too? If so, please leave a link to your post in the comment box. I'd like to check yours out ;)

Sincerely,
Putdar.

guess what day it is!

4 Oct 2011

Yesss, baby... It's my blog's birhtday. Yaaay!!! :D


Exactly two years ago, I created my very first post. I started this blog to fulfill the requirement in Bahasa Indonesia class so at first I wrote it in Bahasa. I abandoned it as soon as I got my A on the subject (circa January 2010). But, I resurrected it from its death in September 2010, so the hiatus was approximately eight months. Its name has changed from "Putdar di Sini" to "Sincerely, Putdar." and finally to "The Nerdy Elephant".

Some of my headers during the two years (I love headers!)

Unfortunately, I can't throw a party for you, little blog. But of course this calls for a toast:

So, once again:
Happy birthday, love!
Thanks for being a place to share my silly everyday life. You are wonderful. I am working on making you even more wonderful. I love you! <3

Putdar.

an update on a small part of my ambition

3 Oct 2011

(Please excuse the lame title. I didn't know what to write. Haha...)


Hi! It's Monday again, guys. Can't believe how fast the weekend ended. This morning I had to do a microteaching. I think I did very well. Let's just hope for the best. I want to get my degree as soon as possible, so it's very important for me to get good grades :)

Anyway, this morning I also received a text from the students' choir telling me that I failed on the audition. I'm a bit disappointed. Half of my heart says that it is unfair since I wasn't in my best condition when the audition was conducted. I had cough and influenza back then. But the other half tells me that my voice is really not that good. I might still not get it even if I were in my best condition. Perhaps singing isn't my stuff.

And because of that, I have to find another extracurricular activity to put on my CV. Any idea?

Sincerely,
Putdar.

money (+some other) issues

2 Oct 2011


I know it would sound like an old song if I told you that I need to be more strict about my spending spree, but God knows I do! I really do. I could spend more than IDR20,000 for food per day. You see, I don't live in a dorm, so that's a quite big amount of food money. It happens because I rarely eat at home. If I force myself to have breakfast before leaving for classes, I think I could save IDR5,000 per day more or less.

I also need to be more organised at stuffs. I have to create a weekly schedule for doing the laundry. I have to tidy up my burrow. I have to rearrange my college stuffs (I can't find my little notebook and that's depressing!). I have to tune my guitar. I have to clean my netbook's desktop from unnecessary icons.

Most of all, I need to reformat my mind.

Yeah. Let's try this.

Sincerely,
Putdar.
