The Very First Post on The Very First Day of The New Decade

Well, hello 2011. Nice to finally meet you :)

First and foremost: happy new year! May the year 2011 brings happiness, joy and better weather to all of us.

I am very proud to announce that I am re-activating Let The Beast In today, exactly on 1-1-11. Tanggal cantik! As Indonesian likes to call it. 

The main goal for this blog is to talk less about myself, and more about interesting things that the world has to offer, especially about the 7 topics I love the most: travel, visual art, movies, fashion,  literature, inspiring affairs, and plain weird things which will mostly be FAILS! Will try to be consistent in writing in either just English, or just Bahasa. I used to deliver thoughts better in English, but I turned out to be funnier in Bahasa. Sekarang kok jadi susah kalo ndak di miks-miks dikit gitu lho, seus -- with all due respect to alm. Ida Kusumah wat hepen aya naon?!

Of course, I will also throw in some stories about myself and maybe Mr. Husband, but mostly me :D

And so for the very first post on this very first day of the new decade, I'm gonna ask the compulsory question: what did you do for New Year's Eve?

Ours was less than exciting (mohon abaikan seorang lelaki yang pules sekali terlelap bagai mati, dengan penampakan seperti seonggok lemak pelumas wajan Hanamasa. Rrrrrr)


We had dinner with my parents and went back to our pad by 10 pm. Probably sounds pretty lame, but when asked if he's sorry that he did not spent NYE by partying like he used to, back in his bachelor days, he said, "I would be more sorry if I spent it by partying. I'd rather sleep." Age don't lie!

On a brighter side, I think this is the first time I've ever viewed a NYE from a tall building (i.e. our apartment), so it's also the first time I watched a fireworks shower from above the ground. It turned out to be very pretty, ya...

Another shot of the room, with the lights off. Keep your eyes off of the sexy man, and check out the view outside the window. Prettyyy :) Another lovely thing about our already much-beloved apartment.

The pictures and video's qualities are crappy, but the fireworks were not, I swear.

But enough about the celebration (or the lack of it). I'm gonna ask the second compulsory question: what's your New Year resolution?

Like always, I don't have any, but if yours is to forget an ex, here's a little help:


Had a rough break up? Can't seem to keep yourself from Googling your ex's name? Tired of refreshing your Facebook feed until you see their updates, hoping they post something that alludes to how miserable they are without you, only to find that they have become hotter, travel more, and eventually find someone who looks like a sinetron star? This New Year's, resolve to knock off the social media masochism with Ex-Blocker. Once you enter your ex's name, Twitter handle, and Facebook link, he / she'll disappear into the ether, even from your Google searches.

If the dreaded target does pop up on your daily radar, you'll see her info blurred out with the words EX-BLOCKED preventing you from any spying.

No more feeling sorry for yourself, stalking the profiles of their new love interests, and you can finally say to his/her face, "You're dead to me!" Well, digitally.

Have a great year!
