Bad luck or bad karma or whatever you call it. it happened to me again. this time i never expected it, didn't realize, wasn't alert, completely unaware. :( . someone took my phone? yes! it was a middle-aged lady. i don't even know how she looks like. bummer. hope everything goes 'well' for her! when i broke the news to  my parents i was practically trembling, i always need them to reassure me that its okay, still a mummy and daddy's baby at heart.

Well, actually my post is about how to track down your phone after it has been stolen. I was unlucky, as i didn't know about this before. i'm naive but slowly learning from challenges. Well, its an application that you can install in your phone with the android system. Applications called Contact owner, Where's my Droid?, AVG Antivirus, Plan B. Read on it below, as i never used it before, i'm really not sure how effective it is. I suggest try installing the apps, no harm done. read more about the apps below.

Baksos aka Bakti Sosial. Its an event where you give back to society. A group of friends and I, got the chance to be a part of this charity event, which was held recently at Purwakarta about 1 hour away from Bandung. The charity event was held in a primary school and organised by the alumni students of year 1991. It was wonderful, to think that students that have graduated for quite some time, still honor their university and give back to society. 

I gained many things during this charity event, experience from treating children and also new friends. Children are amazing, although sometimes annoying. I have learnt that we can never force a child to do something ( like to extract a tooth) but if they agree to do it, although they feel pain or uncomfortable, they brave through it. :) As there were so many little school kids that came, work had to be done at lightning speed with whatever equipments provided. Good training for dentistry work in rural areas. 
Brushing teeth twice a day, after eating breakfast and before sleeping at night, will help save your teeth! :D

Rhino National Geographic

I have always had a soft spot for animals. the ones that are 'hard' skinned to be precise. :) tortoise, turtles, hippopotamus, rhinos, whales, dolphins and so many more. the antagonistic animals. Furry animals like cats and mice are actually cuddly but i don't fancy them as i'm just afraid they will bite me, scratch me, poo poo or shi shi on my hand? Watching them, amazes me though.

A friend of mine inspired this post on a specific animal Javan Rhinoceros. These rhinos are special as they have one horn lesser and are smaller than the normal type of rhinos. I had zero knowledge about this animal this morning,but i started reading up, and felt like sharing.

Scientific Name: Rhinoceros sondaicus
Habitat: tropical and subtropical forests
Location: Western Indonesia
Population: As few as 40 in Ujung Kulon National Park, Indonesia ( distinct sub-species of Javan rhino from Vietnam has been declared as extinct in 2011) It is found no where else in the world. critically endangered.

These beautiful animals will be extinct, if we don't do something. If you have the means, try donating. As for me, i can only spread the word about these rhinos for now, and hope for a better future for them. :)

Btw, another javan rhinoceros? i don't know why, but the rhinos keep reminding me of Cera's dad in the movie Land before time, which is a anchiceratops dinasour. Don't you think they look rather similar?

oh yah~ Try visiting my previous post about a safari in South Africa, where i encountered white rhinos, amazing animals. I would love to go to another safari or a wildlife sanctuary, just to watch the animals.

p/s : ever been kissed by a dolphin? it is like taking a baseball bat and tapping it on your face, just that it isn't a bat, its a cute lovable dolphin.

once upon a time

Once upon a time, there was a girl who needed a "happy every after" :) Have you heard of the series 'Once upon a time'? My friend introduced it to me and i finished watching the whole season 1, in a week. call me crazy but the show was enchanting. Its about fairy tales like Snow White, the evil witch, Pinocchio, Red riding hood, Rumpelstiltskin, Fairy God mothers and many more. All in a single series. Marvelous! What else can  you ask for. :)
I adore fairy tales, fantasy, magic and magical creations. Maybe cause it doesn't exist in the real world, it makes my imagination go wild which involves a lot of 'what if's. what if i owned a dragon? i really do want one, a tame one to be precise. What if i had a fairy god mother who granted my wishes? What if i married prince charming? What if i owned a 'happy ever after'?

Kara-Step. try shaking your hips to the song. :) its difficult to get the tempo right. but the song is addictive and colourful.

p/s: i found this in my hostel, such a cute message :)

Lily and Rose

Ever went for a manicure or pedicure before? : D . I went for my very first pedicure recently and my second time for a manicure. Its always fun to have someone pamper you especially after working for hours in the clinic. I still feel a little awkward though, when going for all these pampering sessions, as i tend to feel bad for the workers that are doing the job especially when it involves the feet.
I have yet to try a full body massage, that will be next on the list.
My manicure and pedicure was done at Lily and Rose, a boutique cum beauty salon and reflexology. They even have a cafe. The boutique is wonderful if your looking for clothes that screams the summer, flowers, laces and ruffles. As for the mani and pedi, it was not up to our expectation actually, it was done in a rushed manner. We didn't feel it was a great experience, its not horrible either. :)

I just found Wondergirls "Be my Baby" and i love it.  i may be outdated but this song is so addictive. give it a try. :)

i think humans tend to be thankful only when something bad happens. i try to be thankful for everything but sometimes i tend to forget. today, at around 6.15pm there was an earthquake around 160km from my hostel. we felt the tremors, but it lasted only for a few seconds. its frightening enough. Everything started shaking but nothing was controllable. i was waiting and hoping it would stop. the few seconds, to be thankful for life.

the details :

scenery at Malabar *brrrr.chill right down to the bones*
seminar in Malabar
cute gummy fangs to cheer up the youngsters or maybe to scare them *evil grin*
