movie reviews: nikita

well, since blockbuster movies are still being banned from Indonesia's cinema, i have no option other than watching series.. (no way i'm giving up watching..hahahaa..). so, since after couple disappointment in "The Cape" and i forget what's the series' name.. , being agreeed to buy Nikita is such a pleasure. This is another heroine movie. The main character, Nikita, was an assasin in a government black-op which is now gone rogue. After fled from the organization, instead of hiding, she decided to fight back and make sure that every mission the organization had, failed. And she had a mole inside, whom she has trained before. a russian heir whom never knew that nikita has killed her parents. nor how dangerous and tricky it is being inside of the organization.

this movie kinda so-so. a heroine with a plan of saving the world. well-trained assasin, highly skilled but a moral killer. a usual plot of tricking each other. and also, being falling in love with your enemies. although it same old, new fashion way of spy movies, it's okay to fill my day. not to boring, and pretty complicated. since you can never know who's the real villain. but at the end of the first season, which is kinda surprising, i can't see it coming. although no one being killed, but sadly, nikita parted from her partner. after gaining another partner beforehand. kinda saving me from my boredom since there were many twists in the series. although i still rooting for my criminal minds. hoping next season will come soon...

after a year and a half

hmm..ndak kerasa aku udah setahun setengah di mitra ini. many experiences, many ups and downs during those times. many cases, many incidences, but i survived  though. some may come and go, but i found new friends here. not just among peer doctors, but also from nurses, paramedics and administration clerks. i do like the work environment. although sometimes the schedule is insanely hectic, but since we worked with people that we're comfortable with, it's enjoyable. many funny stories too... let's review some..

comments and questions i heard most in the hospital (since i'm the all-rotating doctor --> ward, icu, emergency room, clinics, even both hotel clinics.. hahaa..talking about being greedy... ):
1. hmm.. u looked new.. i never saw u before: errr... i've been here a year...
2. u look young, how old are you? : errrr... i'm 26 now.
3. u do look young, are u an intern here? nope.. i'm officially a doctor, legal and under oath since october 28th, 2010.
4. are u really have graduated? errr... yeah.. i won't be able to be here and be your doctor if i don't have a license
5. what school? i've graduated from unair. (at this point, some showed awe .. now they're starting to believe that i'm a REAL doctor.. hahahaa..)
6. are u married? nope.. not yet
7. any boyfriend? yes.. we've been engaged (don't think that some will stop at this point, knowing that i've been engaged. a few keep going by saying anything could happen before i'm married.. hahaa.. pretty bold)
8. u're pretty.. don't look like a doctor.. : well, i'll be damn if i have to be ugly to become a doctor. don't judge a book by its cover people...

comments i heard most in the hotel clinics:
1. where r u going? clinic.. (they looked puzzled.. and i kept going..hahaa..)
2. which department are u in? i'm not an employee here.. i'm the doctor (ooooo... that's the most replies i got)
3. hey..u haven't check log! mmm.. i don't have one.. i'm the doctor..
4. r u here to collect debts? errr... do i look like one? hahaha..
5. which trainee are u? i'm not a trainee.. i'm a doctor (please.. u've already saw my white coat.. what do u think it was? a cook's coat?)
6. u look young.. (here we go again...)
7. i haven't seen u before... (again... since i'm just filling the blank schedule, it's probably they don't always meet me when they come to the clinic)

and lately, i've been asked for my card.. hahaa.. i don't have one. probably i'll make one soon.

lesson for ever after - continued

yesterday, after skipped the class for several weeks, finally we had time to do the consulting again. hahaa.. this time, since it was a short notice and both of us are in a hurry, so the lesson kinda in pieces. whatever comes to om han's mind, he talked to us and then we will discussed it. wekekeke.. melencengggg..

okay, the first lesson is about having the principal ground in building a family, which is in God. although some family claimed that they're Christian, it don't necesserily grant them happiness. even some non Christian could be happy since they are defining their own happines standard. so if we wanted happiness in our family, we have to put God first and do everything according to His law and surely happiness will follow. perhaps it wouldn't come instantly, but later we will see His plan is never wrong for us.

and being closer to God is important since it also will make us closer to our spouse as well. just like Jeffrey Rahmat said in one of his sermon, like a triangle with God on the peak, if we came closer to God, if our relationship with God grew stronger, it will also draw our spouse closer, as the gap between the base and the apex of the triangle are become closer. and the parents have strong relationship with God, the children will see that example and follow unconciously. and also if there were any problems along the way, as long as we ask God to intervene, there will be a solution.

the next lesson is about changing our spouse. how can we change them? although it seems impossible, it was proven possible in God. the first step that we have to take is to change ourself first. then bring it in prayer so that God may intervene in His way to change our spouse.

and the most important lesson is about how to communicate. communication between two person could be tricky. some obstacles in communication : rock-headed, cocky, unwilling to listen, egoism, and etc. so the most important key in communication is the willingness to listen. the most dangerous thing is if we acted like we listen but in fact, we didn't listen. it could back-stabbed us. and other things that play part in communication besides words are gesture and intonation. same words that was spoken in different intonaton could bring different effects. so i guess, another lesson to lessen the ME inside of me, open our ears as wide as we could, and change first.
