Roxy Milano Pasaribu

Her name is Roxy, 3 month years old
The lady next door gave her to my dad, well frankly all of us were fell in love at the first sight towards her. She's just so cute and appeared innocent, UNTIL we got to know her deeper.
It only took couple of days to figure out several things:

1. Hyperactive. Lincah ga ketulungan.
She leaps, she jumps, she runs back and forth around the house. She bumped to chair, sofa, etc but she kept running like no pain at all.
  2. Naughty ass.
BANDEL! NAKAL! None of us is powerful enough to forbid her, It's kinda impossible to yell "No Rox,you can't do that" or "No Rox, stop it!!" She ignored each of us, ergh!!

3.She Bites
Crazy, she bites everything. I mean everything.
She bit my cheek, my ear, my thigh. It left mark :((
Roxy sudah merusak BANYAK di rumah ini! Alkitab, kabel piano, Dompet LV, my panties, my sister's bra, lemari kamar, mouse cable, dan masih banyak lainnya.

4. She's a cutie.
But it's undeniable that she's a cutie, we do crazy in love with Roxy apart of her insane energy.When she sleeps, she sleeps like a baby. No matter how loud you scream, she won't move and up. nevah evah.
This photo was taken right after she got busted chewing the cable of my sister's favorite laptop optical mouse. She was mad, yelled outloud and spanked her. I couldn't stand it, Roxy's face was so innocent yet I know that Roxy needs to DIHAJAR!!
5 menit setelah dihajr, lalu dipeluk lagi, lagi dielus2, daaaan BOBOK aja loh dia... tidur tak berdosa

5. BULE!
Anjing Bule! Her hair is golden brownish, her eyes are hazel-gold, her paws are big. She has a big head and pretty much a big headed PUPPY!!

Celine, reads my mind.

Celine:"I mean,I always feel like a freak because I'm never able to move on like.."click"..this!You know.. People just have an affaire, or even... entire relationships...They break up and they forget! They move on like they would have changed a brand of Cereals!
I feel I was never able to forget anyone I've been with. Because each person have...you know, specific qualities".

You can never replace anyone.




I see in little details,
so specific to each other, that move me, and that I miss,and..will always miss.
What is lost is lost. Each relationship, when it ends, really damages me. I haven't fully recovered. That's why I'm very careful with getting involved, because... It hurts too much!
Celine: "I'm a strong independent woman in my professional life. I don't need a man to feed me, but I still need a man to love me, and that I could love,you know. So..." "People that are the most giving, hard working and capable of making this world better, usually don't have the ego and ambition to be a leader.They don't see the interest in superficial rewards, they don't care if their name ever appear in the press,they actually enjoy the process of helping others"


















C:"I mean, desire is the fuel of life. I mean, it's healthy to desire, right?"
But, sometimes I worry that I'll get to the end of my life feeling
I haven't done all I've all I wanted to do.
J:Oh, what do you wanna do?
C:Oh, I want to paint more,I wanna play my guitar everyday,I wanna learn Chinese,I wanna write more songs.There're so many things I wanna do,and end up doing not much.

The Shack



A fiction. A story of a man who had personal encounter with God.
I wish they would make a movie based on the book.


This book will bring you to the basic point of knowing who God is, His power,and His personality.
It sends a great message like what an unconditional love is all about, what a forgiving means and benefits you, the colors of friendship, answering the life questions such as "Where is God when shitty things turn to be "The Great Sadness" happened?".
You'll be mesmerized of how sincerely incredible God sees us. He knows us by our names. I loved this book and I've been telling others to read it. I found it very moving and know many people whose lives have been transformed for the better by reading "The Shack".This is probably the most profound and best book I've ever read in my entire life. It has brought me totally back to God. I completely identified with Mack and the Great Sadness which has been in my life also.


Here's the review:
Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack's world forever. In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant "The Shack" wrestles with the timeless question, "Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?" The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. You'll want everyone you know to read this book!

Psalm 139


13 For you created my inmost being;  you knit me together in my mother's womb.
 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made your works are wonderful, I know that full         well.
 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together   in the depths of the earth,
 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for m were written in your book
       before one of them came to be.

"....iyaaaa..mirip Tere kan?......"

Nggak tau harus bangga atau senewen kalo dibilang mirip Tere. Sampe wikipedia-ing nyari kayak apa sih yang namanya Tere.


A: "Mbak..em...mbak kalo dilihat-lihat embak mirip..."
R: "Iya..saya tau, saya mirip Tere.."


Secara harafiah sudah 3 tahun terakhir ini saya hitung ada 21 orang bilang saya mirip Tere. Yang terakhir Mbak Nanie, client kantor.











Di depan FX (pinggir jalan) lagi mau masuk, 2 tukang parkir di luar teriak "Tere.. eh ada Mbak Tere..eh cantik aslinya.." (HEBOH BOK). Jujurnya saya spontan panic, kaget, karena mereka mendekat ke arah saya. Panic,saya malah lari ngibrit. Guess what? MAKIN DIKEJAR! "Tuh kan bener itu Tere..soalnya dia kabur" gilaaaak.. saya pun makin ngibrit. Sampe di FX ngos2an, beberapa satpam mengernyitkan dahi "Mbak Tere,knp lari?" 
GRrrrRrRR!@#$%^& TAMBAH KUSUT!










Well, Point to ponder is: mestinya saya nggak usah pusing ya dibilang mirip Tere. GR amat. Belum tentu si Tere nya seneng dibilang mirip Ruthia.
Tapi tetep saya keukeuh "MIRIP DIMANANYA SIIKK?"

Yes I'm blogging now.




Twitter timeline (May 11th 2010)
"You're blogging??????? a good start!" @unyil_13
"Wah @RuthieRich ada blog jugaaaa- langsung bookmark" @missviona
"A truly inspiring blog. No kidding! @SueBoen
on and on @... @... @...


Yes Everybody I am Ruthia Pasaribu is officially blogging now. Not that "just now" actually, It's been 5 months since last Jan. But yeah, I blogged just for fun, I take it as a pleasure and training ground to exercise my writing skill which is emm zero, eh?


Should I blame or thank @SueBoen ? That's what I tweeted earlier. As I checked on my Twitter account, numerous tweets mentioned of RT and reply asking about that matter "Blogging". Frankly I was kinda shy to publish publicly that I actually blog now. Why? because of the limited skill, vocab, and..earggh...yeah u know..
But then I tried to recall what was the major reason why I started blogging.
Here they are:
1. Once I made a pledge to God, that one day I'll write a book titled "How to survive a broken heart"
I went thru a major pain of broken heart experience 6 years ago. A mess that God turned into a message. If it isn't for God, i don't think I could ever get healed. A big turning point for me. I'm not the same person as I used to be ever since :)
2. Too many stories to tell and too many miracles to testify. I'm a dreamer. I have a lot of things in mind. Saya banyak maunya! Have you ever heard "Watch out of what you ask for, They might come true"? The problem is I A.L.W.A.Y.S get what I want. I am well loved by people. I have the best parents&siblings ever, I have a fantastic life, I'm a people person and I have numerous friend lists .What could I ask for more? I want people to experience what I've had, I want to tell the world that there's cure for broken hearts, there's more to life than just money,love, fame, power, and sex.  THERE IS MORE TO LIFE. I'm the living witness.
3. I'm naturally born love to cuap-cuap verbally-non verbal. I wrote diaries since I was 8 and I kept writing as I grew older. Now that there's a blog, I decide to make ones,and pay my vow :)

I'm not always right of course, I love to share and I open for critics. People, feel free to leave comments. I could learn more while your thoughts appear to benefit my aging process :)

Dear my girl bestfriend forevah Susan Boen. i LOVE you. Thank you for helping me believe that I CAN. And thank you for kick out the "T" out of the word "can't". Susan is also experiencing the (worse) major broken relationship. We believed that the ultimate healing from love comes with reunion of self and God. 
Let's write the book even sooner and help the current generation knows what the real "love".  This is the kind of legacy I want to leave behind.

One more thing, This popped up from my father's mouth:
"Ruth I'm proud of you. You have a great life and run it well. You stand strong of what you believe in. I think you have to write a book. I treasure the values of your life. Tell the youth generation that they don't have to follow the trend to be cool, they don't have to give in their body for the sake of love, tell them that they should know what they exactly want and go get it. Even better i would like to financially&mentally support you to be a motivational speaker"
I had goosebumps right after. it's kinda impossible my dad would humble enough to admit such things.
oh Papah.....You must have been touched by the Lord Almighty :)

"How to be happy like you,Kak Ruth?"

"How to be happy like you,Kak Ruth?"

That's exactly what a friend asked me this morning.
Sebutlah namanya Bella. Datang dengan latar belakang anak tunggal, cantik, langsing, kaya raya, sekolah Fashion. Pulang pergi diantar supir dengan piihan mobil Volvo,Lexus,Mercedesz semuanya sedan.  Aktivitas? selain sekolah, ya ke mall. Hangout, nonton, makan,dan makan.
Bersamaan pula dia suka makan, dan kalo makan nggak tanggung maunya yang mahal. Hmm atau mungkin bukannya dia mau yang mahal tapi emang pilihan dia ya nggak nanggung (aduh saya ngomong apa sih)
Umur baru 20 tahun, dan baru punya pacar anak orang kaya juga. Kalau dinilai dari facebook, dan penampilan luar, dan apa yang dikenakan, saya beranggapan bahwa dia bahagia. Ya dalam arti nggak ada hal yang bisa membuat dia susah tidur karena kuatir.
Kemarin malam saya nginap di rumah mewahnya. Saya tau dia senang (ngefans-red) dengan saya, it has always been a pleasure for her if I sleep over at her place, she herself told me bukan keGRan nih :D
We had a girl night fun time, beli martabak Holland dan nonton DVD on the bed using my MacBookPro. The next morning, as I put my make up on she suddenly asked me "Kak Ruth, how to be happy yah? how to be happy like you, you seem very positive and excited about life. I wanna be like you". Saya terperanjat seketika, terperanjat karena saya merasa istimewa dibilang bahagia. Bingung? sama dong, saya juga bingung. Lagi bingung tapi kan saya harus tetap tampak "dewasa" di depan dia dan dia pun menunggu jawaban saya. Spontan saya menjawab "To be happy is to be grateful for life, do everything with your maximal capability and never compares yourself with other people". Begitu jawaban saya dengan senyum sumringah. Dia diam,tertunduk, dan menggigit bibirnya. Karena suasana hening, saya ambil kesempatan itu untuk bicara lebih dalam "Bella, you are young, pretty, rich, having a boyfriend, you can HaveBuyEatGet everything you want.What could be worse/better than that? Hidup memang tidak pernah memuaskan sampai kamu bisa bersyukur atas hal-hal kecil. Barusan kamu bilang mau bahagia seperti aku, nih aku cerita sedikit. April has never been worse than ever. I lost a bestfriend, I barely lost my dream, barely lost a job, barely lost a partner and contract deal, and i just lost a love chance. semuanya dalam 1 waktu,pas lagi PMS pula. Selama seminggu makan cuman sekali, ngga bisa tidur dan badan lesu bawaannya. What choice do I have? I've gotten to the point where my mouth was sealed and I freezed since I had no idea what to do. Dan semalaman kita ketawa-ketawa seperti nggak ada apa-apa. Bukannya aku pura-pura nggak ada apa-apa tapi aku harus tempatin diri, nggak mungkin aku jalan kemana-mana bawa "tong sampah" dan lemparin sampah nya ke semua orang yang aku temui.Bau dong.. Bella, semua orang punya masalah. Nah pintar-pintar kita deh membuat masalah itu membuat kita jadi orang tolol nggak berdaya,atau bikin jadi semakin bijaksana dan kuat. Mau bawa-bawa sampah bau terus atau bikin sampah itu jadi bahan daur ulang trus kita jual dan menghasilkan uang"

Begitu penjelasan saya, dan Bella mendadak sumringah. Dia mengakui bahwa memang nggak ada hal yang salah dengan hidupnya, dia hanya bosan. (Cuman bosan kok bisa bikin stress?!?!)

Sepanjang hari saya kepikiran. Bukan kepikiran Bella, tapi kepikiran diri sendiri. Saya pikir saya adalah solusi buat Bella dari Tuhan, tapi ternyata Bella lah yang jadi solusi saya. Hikmat dan wejangan yang saya bagikan ke Bella itu sebenarnya lebih tepat buat saya sendiri. Saya harus belajar bersyukur lebih lagi. Bersyukur bukan ketika akhir bulan gajian bisa belanja, pesta meriah dengan teman, gaji double. Tapi bersyukur di "tempat sampah", dalam badai, dan kamar gelap gulita.
Ketika kita bersyukur, hati kita lebih damai. Ketika kita damai, kita bisa memiliki iman, nah iman  itulah yang membawa kita kepada mukjizat dan penyelesaian masalah-masalah dalam hidup ini. Damai di hati itu yang menjadi tiang kekuatan untuk percaya bahwa mukjizat itu nyata.

Sisi lainnya, saya senang ketika orang lain melihat saya seorang yang bahagia dan positive. Itu kebahagiaan buat saya, bahwa senyum dan keramahan saya membawa kebahagiaan buat orang lain.
Point saya adalah, banyak-banyaklah beryukur sama Tuhan. Di luar sana banyak yang lebih bokek, sakit-sakitan, nggak dicintai, nggak dipeduli'in, lebih kelaparan daripada kita. Juga, tetaplah berbuat baik kapanpun, dimanapun dengan siapapun, kadang kita tidak sadar jalan hidup kita "ditonton" banyak orang. Nah yang jadi permasalahannya film hidup kita mengsinspirasi orang lain atau mengiritasi mereka. Sekali lagi, hidup adalah pilihan.

Have a good day, people! Stay positive! Mourning may endures for a night, but Joyeth comes in the morning
