Californian_Fruit_Salad rujak_buah

American fruits salad and Indonesian fruits rujak

There are some differences and a similarity between American fruits salad and Indonesian fruits rujak such as the kind of fruits,the sauce and the serve.American salad mostly combined by many kind of sweet fruits like grape,strawberry,orange and etc as the main ingredients.In indonesian rujak usually use more variation fruits between sweet and sour taste like papaya,mango,rose-apple,star fruit,pineapple,kodondong,bengkoang and melon.Beside that,the American salad always include mayonnaise-based sauce,yogurt or mustard as a dressing and that’s why the taste is yummy(mixed between sweet and sour).In Indonesian rujak, it use peanut sauce as a dressing and the sauce usually use chilly so that,the taste is hot(it would make we want to eat again and again for people who love hot).Anyway,people in America or in Indonesia serve salad or rujak as an appetizer,dessert or even snack in their free time.It’s so delicious and health food to eat but,however i think Indonesian rujak is the best for me.How about you?… mayonaise rujak

Balanced Self-Confidence by:Dewi

June 11, 2009 at 2:24 pm (Uncategorized)

Tip: Balanced Self-Confidence

Self-confidence is about balance. At one extreme, we have people with low self-confidence. At the other end, we have people who may be over-confident.

If you are under-confident, you’ll avoid taking risks and stretching yourself; and you might not try at all. And if you’re over-confident, you may take on too much risk, stretch yourself beyond your capabilities, and crash badly. You may also find that you’re so optimistic that you don’t try hard enough to truly succeed.

Getting this right is a matter of having the right amount of confidence, founded in reality and on your true ability. With the right amount of self-confidence, you will take informed risks, stretch yourself (but not beyond your abilities) and try hard.

So how confident do you seem to others?

Your level of self-confidence can show in many ways: Your behavior, your body language, how you speak, what you say, and so on. Look at the following comparisons of common confident behavior with behavior associated with low self-confidence. Which thoughts or actions do you recognize in yourself and people around you?

Self-Confident Low Self-Confidence
Doing what you believe to be right, even if others mock or criticize you for it. Governing your behavior based on what other people think.
Being willing to take risks and go the extra mile to achieve better things. Staying in your comfort zone, fearing failure and so avoid taking risks.
Admitting your mistakes and vowing to learn from them. Working hard to cover up mistakes and praying that you can fix the problem before anyone is the wiser.
Waiting for others to congratulate you on your accomplishments. Extolling your own virtues as often as possible to as many people as possible.
Accepting compliments graciously. “Thanks, I really worked hard on that prospectus. I’m pleased you recognize my efforts.” Dismissing compliments offhandedly. “Oh that prospectus was nothing really, anyone could have done it.”

As you can see from these examples, low self-confidence can be self-destructive, and it often manifests itself as negativity. Self-confident people are generally more positive – they believe in themselves and their abilities, and they also believe in the wonders of living life to the full.

The Popular Mall in Jakarta

June 10, 2009 at 1:39 pm (Uncategorized)

Jakarta is a town with many malls. From the new malls until the old malls. For examples, Taman Anggrek Mall and Citraland Mall. They are the old malls in Jakarta. But, they have similarity in same location but they have differences too in the guest and the products in that Mall.

Taman Anggrek Mall and Citraland Mall are located in Grogol. But, from the guest Citraland Mall always be visited by teenagers and children. But Taman Anggrek visited by all ages. Maybe because Taman Anggrek’s product and Citraland’s Products is different. Taman Anggrek’s product is relative expensive than Citraland’s. Besides, Citraland has many childrens and teenagers complexities than Taman Anggrek. That’s why Taman Anggrek and Citraland has different guest although in same location.

Indonesian Entertainment World by yolanda

June 8, 2009 at 5:57 pm (Uncategorized)

Entertainment industry seems like a big magnet that attracts everyone and there are newcomers every single day that results in several bad effects. The first one, not everyone of them is a real entertainer. They cannot really act, sing and direct. Leave alone giving good performance. Their only concern is being famous, which does not come true. Only some of them are well-known by the public. Second effect is bringing the quality of Indonesian entertainment down. More and more Indonesian movie are coming, but only several of them gives something worthy to watch. It is the same in music industry, there is a new musician every week. These new bands or singers are famous today, but tomorrow they are gone as their only-one-famous song fades. For example, Astrid who sang “Jadikan Aku yang Kedua” is like gone by the wind. The most serious effect is that giving a bad lesson for everyone that being a celebity is as easy as blinking our eyes. People will have this thought that every actors cannot act, every singer do not have beatiful voice and every director are only thinking about making money without trying to give a good movie as a messenger. I, as an audience, can only hope that Indonesian entertainment will be better. I hope there will be an Indonesian movie that is as big as ‘Harry Potter’ or ‘Transformer’.
