Another weekend gone... too soon....  
Well if I hadn't been sick I probably would have made it a little bit more productive, but yes, I stayed home again. Well I went to Costco yesterday, and got a little groggy/dizzy since I wasn't 100% yet, but I managed to load up on all the stuffs I really wanted to get, veggies and more veggies.

Today I watched Rafa play against Nole at the Sony Ericsson Open final in Miami. It started out great, but then he kept making mistakes, dropping double faults here and there while Nole was just perfect. So he lost, with a 3rd set tie-breaker. He looked exhausted. Both of them did, but I think Nole got a second wind towards the end, as he could taste his victory was near.







S'okay, Rafa, we'll get him next year, all right? I have to remember next year to try to make the trip because I think this would be a good change from the US Open. Not that I don't like the US Open and NYC and all that, but it gets a bit monotonous after a while.




Also watched Eat Pray and Love. The movie does not flow well at all. And although supposedly she achieved all these things that she wanted to when she set out for her trips, I didn't feel moved enough. Just when she was in Italy maybe, because I can relate with the food. Hahaha.... In Bali, I wasn't really sure what she was seeking for. Maybe just a recap of everything and trying to get ready for her trip back, because she knew she was going to come back. Here's what I don't get... I hate when people can do that. Just take off for a year, and do something they really want to do. In another country. I'm already thinking what kind of documents will these people at the consulates need in order to let me stay at their country for more than a month? Without a place to stay first, without knowing the full itinerary? There's no way they're going to let me do that. And it's so unfair. I have the means to do it. Stay someplace for a month or more. But will they let me? And the only difference is that because I WAS BORN in Indonesia?? It's such bullshit. Americans and Europeans who have less money than I do could just pack up their bags and passport, and enter a country for at least 90 days, with no guarantee whatsoever. Me? I have to give them my bank statement, my employment letter, my health insurance. There is something totally wrong with that picture, don't you think?
