Ogilvylympics

Another old video from when I was still working for Ogilvy. This one was taken a while back when Ogilvy Indonesia held a New Year's Party. I have explained on one of the previous posts that Ogilvy really knows how to throw a party, including the celebration of 2014.
On 2013 New Year's Party, they literally booked the whole X2/Equinox Club for the entire office. Free flow for the whole night and full of crazy yet fun performances from each division. No difference this year, except the venue was at The Foundry 8 this time. Still with free flow booze of course, obvi.
This year's theme was kinda lame at the first time I heard about it, but I did grow to like it tho. It was inspired by the Olympics so sporty kind of theme. Therefore, all the performances were angled to match the theme. But mostly we all did some sort of dance/aerobic routines because it was the best thing we could come up with for a show that involves many people at the same time. Including my division, Ogilvy Public Relations.
Since I was one of the most energetic employees of Ogilvy PR, my bosses delegated me to lead the team to perform a super insane thing to do. Well, being a terrible dancer that I am, I couldn't say no to choreograph an easy routine for my team. So I mixed the songs and came up with some generic yet lunatic steps.
It was fun, we were all drunk, another amazing night with Ogilvy! (Great, now I miss them haha :")

My trip to Tiger Island


I'm a beach person. I always love the feeling of the sea breeze through my hair, the white sand between my toes, the crystal clear water, and the warm sun. I just can't get enough of those feelings in my life. Therefore, I successfully managed to squeeze in a super quick trip in the middle of my work to the infamous Tiger Island.

Pulau Macan (literally means Tiger Island) is one of the little islands in the archipelago of Jakarta's 1000 islands. They made it as an independent resort and ran the entire island by themselves. I went there just for the weekend but it's worth everything! Given the fact that it's just a couple of hours from the city.

I didn't do much there besides chilling, snorkelling and kayaking. Well, it's basically the point of the island, it's a place for people to unwind from their busy life in the city and merely enjoy the nature. I needed that so badly at that time, so it was a major treat.

The highlight were probably I learnt to paddle a kayak and learn about a the horrendous stonefish. That mofo can kill you in a couple of hours time by injecting the venom through its super pointy fins. And the most frightening thing is that you can't see them because they freaking pretend to be stones! So watch out when you casually walk around the beach.

Overall, it was such a lovely time staying at a beautiful island with huts everywhere that directly face the sea. Definitely will try to visit more islands!

Dance Cover: Tinashe - 2 On (ft. SchoolBoy Q)


New video! Yay! :D Finally I got back to the iron-land to lift some weights. I have been signed up for a gym at Fitness First for 3 months now. So stoked! Not only can I get back in shape, but I can also get in dance classes... for free. :)

Although it's kinda annoying that the gym provides only 1 hour per session, I'm still able to dance again. That's what matters the most because dancing has been one of my passion since I was little. Probably I'll just write a letter to the management to add more classes in a week and put it in the little box they provide in each club.

Anyway, the song is "2 On" by Tinashe ft. SchoolBoy Q. Never heard of her nor the song, but I kinda dig the chill, slow R&B vibe out of it. The choreography is by Kho Franky. He's the one wearing blue in the video. I like his style and I have a strong feeling there will be lots of dance cover videos coming up. :)

Ogilvy Bunny

I know perhaps it's kinda odd to write a farewell letter to your previous company on your personal blog. And I know it IS very odd to write it after you resigned for more than 4 months ago. It's not like I didn't write anything back then. I did, one day before my last day. With the famous email-blast method haha. And also the hugs and hand-shakes I gave and received from my colleagues. However, I reckon that I still need to make a writing on my blog solely dedicated to my former chic, multinational employer. So here it is, an ode to Ogilvy.
Hmm... Where do I begin? Probably let's start from the moment I knew about the name, Ogilvy, itself. So throwback to when I was still in my last year of uni, I met my good friend Ari and caught up about what she had been doing lately. She was like, "Oh yea I work as a PR (Public Relations) at this advertising agency called Ogilvy." I honestly still didn't get what she said at that point, because my final thesis was the only thing floating in my head. Fast forward to the period after I graduate...

Happy Birthday

I walked down full of uncertainty
Searching for a form of a remedy
Then when you looked at me
It's the second I knew exactly

We build this fort hand in hand
Trying to figure out what is God's plan
I predicted our future like a mad man
You brought me down on my own stand

I, then, finally came to a sudden conclusion
A conclusion that wasn't meant to be a finale

I lost
You found me
And I thought I found you
But not really
I keep blinding myself
Although the answer is 'eventually'

It hurts
I can feel the pain
But I know
This won't come again

You make me happy
You're a burst of joy to me
I cherish every moment with you
And yes, I enjoy to roll with you too

So let's fly
Together to the sky
I'll go with our flow
Till the time for us slow

And until then
This isn't the end
I merely want to say
Hey, Happy Birthday

New Vlogs and Tag Videos

Recently I have been editing old videos containing some vlogs (video blogs) I did in several occasions. Also, I tried to shamelessly participate in a 'video tag' that has been going round on YouTube for years now.

Here they are:

"Mother Nature is a serial killer. No one's better. More creative. Like all serial killers, she can't help but the urge to want to get caught. But what good are all those brilliant crimes if no one takes the credit? So she leaves crumbs. Now the hard part, while you spent decades in school, is seeing the crumbs for the clues they are. Sometimes the thing you thought was the most brutal aspect of the virus, turns out to be the chink in its armor. And she loves disguising her weaknesses as strengths. She's a bitch."
