I'm officially 21 years old since November 23, 2010

As usual, we always have something to share on our birthday
I wanna share mine too.
I called my birthday as the unpredictable day

Why unpredictable? because everything happened on my birthday was beyond my prediction

I started the day by a midnight surprise from a friend
Unpredictable, karena secara saya sedang tidak berpacar jadi tidak mengharap siapapun di tengah malem.
Ternyata ada temen gue yg mau aja dateng bawa kue plus ngasih hadiah.
Unpredictable karena hadiah yang dikasih luar biasa : lukisan muka saya
semoga saya bisa segemuk ini amin :p
Dan bulan lalu gue abis jalan2 sama temen2 gue ke Blok M, trus ngeliat abang2 tukang pelukis emperan rasanya pengen bgt dilukis. Alhamdulillah tercapai juga :)

After that, everything was going normally
Got so many birthday greetings and wishes from friends, had a breakfast and chit chat with my parents, then I went to campus in a super good mood to finish my group assignment.
Unpredictable, karena di tengah - tengah "asik curhat" gue sm temen gue
Jeng Jeng, di belakang gue ramailah temen2 kampus yang imut - imut itu singing happy birtday and brought a special cake. Why special? becaus it was frozen, I couldn't even slice the cake, ahhaha.
Bahkan temen gue yg berbadan besar seperti bakpau motong kuenya sampe keringetan (hai Bobi, thanks anyway! :D)

kibo, rana, bobi, ria, ayu, ichy, resty, gue, nda, indi, icha, dan jaja yg foto
the supercake
Seharian ultah gue sebenernya cuma di kampus aja kumpul sama temen - temen, dan malemnya sekedar makan bebek di daerah Tebet. But I really did enjoy my day.
Hanging out with some friends so I didn't have to be alone on my day.

I felt unpredictably happy, gue termasuk orang yang justru sangat tersentuh sama hal - hal kecil seperti :
  • Birthday greetings dari banyak orang, bikin gue ngerasa gue diingat sama temen - temen gue, apalagi ucapan dari temen - temen yg ngga gue sangka bakal notice ulang tahun gue (walaupun gue tau jaman sekarang tinggal buka twitter / facebook pasti tau siapa aja yg ulang taun di hari itu). Actually, I planned to put some captures of the greetings here.. tapi gue putuskan agaknya terkesan dangdut :p
  • Status BBM temen - temen gue yg diganti jadi "happy birthday ega".. bahkan dari temen - temen yang sebenernya jg ngga deket - deket amat atau malah hanya kenal..
  • Dapet cemilan kampung "kuping gajah" dari temen2 gue *kecup ichy&dinda*
Hal - hal kecil kaya gitulah yg bikin super good mood saya awet seharian.
I truly deeply heartily appreciate it :)

I came home at late night with a smile.
I discovered something clise yet true on that day :
Boyfriends come and go, but best friends don't know how to go :)
Thank you for the gifts, thank you for the joy, thank you for the greetings, and thank you for making me unpredictably happy :)

Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you've found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for.- Lawrence Block

Have you ever watched this movie called Serendipity?  Staring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale, this movie made in 2001. It was not so popular in Indonesia but was one of the best romance movie I've known after Love Actually, He's Just Not that Into You, and A Walk to Remember.

I write about this movie, because it tells you what signs, faith, destiny could give you. The opportunities, possibilities that can happen or not happen in your life. As it written in my blog's line, it shows you when expectation meets reality.

Quoted from imdb.com ,this is the storyline:
Jonathan Trager and Sara Thomas met while shopping for gloves in New York. Though buying for their respective lovers, the magic was right and a night of Christmas shopping turned into romance. Jon wanted to explore things further but Sara wasn't sure their love was meant to be. They decided to test fate by splitting up and seeing if destiny brought them back together... Many years later, having lost each other that night, both are engaged to be married. Still, neither can shake the need to give fate one last chance to reunite them. Jon enlists the help of his best man to track down the girl he can't forget starting at the store where they met. Sara asks her new age musician fiance for a break before the wedding and, with her best friend in tow, flies from California to New York hoping destiny will bring her soulmate back. Near-misses and classic Shakespearean confusion bring the two close to meeting a number of times but fate will have the final word on whether it was meant to be.

Jonathan: This is the ultimate blend to drink. How'd you find this place?
Sara: I first came in because of the name: Serendipity. It's one of my favorite words.
Jonathan: It is? Why?
Sara: It's such a nice sounding word for what it means: a fortunate accident

The movie begins with Jonathan and Sara accidentally meet in a store and share for a pair of gloves they bought on that store. That night they had a very good time, but when Jonathan asks for Sara's number, she refused. So, she write her number on a book and sell it to a random store, and Jonathan write her number on a dollar bill and spend the bill randomly. Sara believes that if they meant to meet each other again, they'll find out theirselves. Jonathan knows nothing about this girl. He only knows that her name is Sara, and he falls for this interesting girl.

Jonathan: If fate didn't want us to be together, then why did we meet tonight? Got you!
Sara: I don't know, it's not an exact science. It's a feeling.
Jonathan: What if you're wrong? Huh? What if it's all in our hands and you just walk away? No names, no phone numbers, what do you think's gonna happen? Do you think good ol' fate is gonna deliver my information to your doorstep?
Sara: You know, that's the best idea you've had all night
Sara: Here you go. Write your name and number down.
Jonathan: On this $5 bill?
Sara: Yeah, just do it.
Jonathan: You are a strange and interesting woman

I love the characters in this Movie.
Sara, with her belief in fate. When she already forgot about this Jonathan guy she met in a store and finally engaged with the man she loves, some signs that reminds her about Jonathan just keep coming back to her. Though, she doesn't just sit and wait for the time to come and tell her who will be her future man. She makes some efforts, she acts by the following signs. She flied from California to NY to meet Jonathan until she finally find out that Jonathan could have been getting married.

Sarah: Just have faith
Jonathan: Faith In what?
Sarah: Destiny 
Jonathan: My name is Johnathan, doesn't that make you want to tell me something?
Sarah: Yes, It does. Merry Christmas Johnathan.

Sarah: I'm the man Eve. Staring into the sky, thinking. Not about my fiancee, but about some mystery guy I met a million and a half hours ago. It was only a moment, a fragment really. But it was like, in that moment, we were supposed to be together. That's why I'm here Eve, that's why I'm going to let destiny take me where it wants to. Because when all of this is over, at least I'll never have to think about him again. Let's just hope he's some bald fascist who picks his nose and wipes it under the car seat."

Jonathan, with his realistic way of thinking. He doesn't really buy about such things like destiny, until he meet Sara. One night he found his glove he bought with Sara,he decided that it was a sign to get her back again. He keep looking for other signs, he come to every places related to Sara like the store where they bought gloves, her favorite restaurant, an ice skating park, etc. But then when he just give up searching for sign that is not exist, on the night before his wedding, his fiance give him an old book, exactly the same book where Sara write her number on.

Dean: What's wrong? You all right?
Jonathan: Her name's Sara Thomas.
Jonathan hands Dean the book]
Dean: How?
Jonathan: Halley gave it to me as a wedding present.

The moral of the story is:
You know the old saying "Kalau jodoh ngga akan kemana",
For me it's more than that. We don't just find our future partner in a blink of an eye.
There would be pebbles that interferes, survival things, there would be ups and downs until you finally get the happy ending. So, for me.. "Kalau jodoh emang suka dipersulit"

And my saying is not only in the context of love.
It could happen in your career, your hobbies, anything you're reaching to is not necessarily be the best for you.
That's why I believe such things like sign, destiny does exist.
That is what happen when expectation meets reality.
But it would be meaningless if you don't do anything.
When love feels like magic, it's called Destiny. When destiny has a sense of humor, It's called Serendipity

Here it is, watch the Trailer ! :)
