Classic and yet, Romantic.


Classic and yet, Romantic.

When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine, birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I’d been out ‘til quarter to three, would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I’m sixty-four?

You’ll be older too
Ah, and if you say the word, I could stay with you

I could be handy, mending a fuse when your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside, Sunday mornings, go for a ride
Doing the garden, digging the weeds, who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I’m sixty-four?

Every summer we can rent a cottage
In the Isle of Wight if it’s not to, dear
We shall scrimp and save
Ah, grandchildren on your knee, Vera, Chuck and Dave

Send me a postcard, drop me a line stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say, yours sincerely wasting away
Give me your answer, fill in a form, mine forever more
Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I’m sixty-four?

so, will you?



i used to be obsessed with dolphins in elementary school. i wanna be a marine biologist so so so so much! 😀 i know the physiology, behavior and all sorts of thing from this animal. then I moved back to Indonesia and realize a life as a marine biologist in here isn’t as great as in Florida. so i kinda forgot about it. 🙁 but i still wanna swim with dolphins so bad. anyone?


Kalau Kau Tak Sanggup

Kalau kau tak sanggup menjadi beringin yang tegak di puncak bukit, jadilah saja belukan, tapi belukan terbaik yang tumbuh di tepi danau. Kalau kau tak sanggup menjadi belukan, jadilah saja rumput, tapi rumput yang memperkuat tanggul pinggiran jalan. Tidak semua jadi kapten, tentu harus ada awak kapalnya. Bukan besar kecilnya tugas yang menjadikan tinggi rendahnya nilai dirimu. Jadilah saja dirimu, sebaik-baiknya dirimu sendiri.

– Soe Hok Gie (1942-1969)

No relationship is perfect, ever.

No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.

– Sarah Dessen (This Lullaby)

#Funfact About IPB


Hi IPB’ers. Tahukah kalian kalau di kampus kita tercinta ada prasasti? Walaupun nilainya belum sampai ratusan tahun tapi cukup menbanggakan karena prasasti kita merupakan salah satu penelitian IPB oleh salah satu dosen Agronomi Hortikultura. Penelitiannya bertemakan uji daya simpan dimana di dalam prasasti tersebut terdapat empat jenis biji diantaranya padi dan jagung beserta komoditas palawija lainnya yang disimpan dalam kotak kaca dan lapisan beton sejak tahun 1984 hingga rubungnya gedung tempat penyimpanannya. Jadi generasi ke berapakah benih yang tersimpan akan lanjut diteliti?


I know this one cha. they’re gonna see how long can the seeds last. It’s kinda cool. 🙂 I don’t think people outside of our department knows about it though. Not that well publicized.
