It was a brainstorming when I decided to join my friend’s invitation to karaoke at that night. You know, I just went back from the office when my friend, Ledy sends a broadcast to join her to karaoke. It was a last week she had had in Pekanbaru, because she had to be back to Tanjungpinang, where she’s been working. Without think twice, I just said yes, to join her. Firstly I asked my pal, “Del Piero” to join with me, and He agreed 😀
We went at half to eight, touched down at the checkpoint and I only saw boys. There was no girl except Ledy, the croupier 😀
These are our picture,
We sang about 3 hours and made me soundless. I mean I can’t even chat with others. I lose my lovely gold voice, haha 😀
Nonetheless, I enjoyed the time with my High School mates, my unforgettable High School, Baywatch 😀
If you curious about Baywatch, why I said our school just like a Baywatch (remember the movie, the safeguards at the beach, and the sexiest safeguards), feel free to send me an email :p
1. Málaga CF
Last season it was APOEL FC, and the year before that Tottenham Hotspur FC. Málaga have continued the debutants reaching quarter-finals trend this term, after pushing AC Milan into second in Group C, before overcoming a first-leg deficit against FC Porto on Wednesday. Manuel Pellegrini’s side were watertight in the group stage and while Isco and Eliseu have provided the goals. Their La Rosaleda home has also become a noisy fortress.

2. Borussia Dortmund
The German title holders have saved their best for the European stage this season. After finishing above the champions of Spain, England and the Netherlands in arguably one of the hardest groups in UEFA Champions League history, Dortmund faced another team to have enjoyed a superb autumn campaign – FC Shakhtar Donetsk – but came through that test with flying colours. They are in the quarter-finals for the first time since 1998, when they overcame domestic rivals Bayern.

3. Real Madrid CF
Second to Borussia Dortmund in the group stage, the record nine-time winners came through a compelling round of 16 tie against Manchester United FC with Old Trafford old boy Cristiano Ronaldo scoring in both legs. José Mourinho is looking to become the first coach to win the competition with three different clubs and Madrid seem to be hitting form at just the right time, with two recent Clásico victories testament to that.
Player to watch: Cristiano Ronaldo
With Burak Yılmaz sitting alongside Cristiano Ronaldo as the competition’s top scorer, Galatasaray have moved into their first quarter-final since 2001. They have certainly come a long way from their first two games which produced no points and no goals. The acquisitions of Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder have given them a further dose of experience and their 3-2 win at FC Schalke 04 showed they can win on the road as well.

5. Paris Saint-Germain
Back in the quarter-finals for the first time since 1995 (when they defeated Barcelona), Carlo Ancelotti’s team negotiated the group stage smoothly but, after winning away at Valencia CF, were given a bit of a scare in the second leg of their round of 16 tie. Zlatan Ibrahimović – who has led the line with aplomb in his first season in Paris – will be suspended for the first leg of their next tie, though Ezequiel Lavezzi has excelled up front.

6. FC Barcelona
The four-time winners topped Group G in the autumn and, after their sensational fightback against AC Milan in the last 16, it seems that suggestions of decline emanating from some quarters are more than a tad premature. Barcelona have now reached this stage for the sixth straight season and are eyeing up a fourth European title in eight years. They are also 13 points clear in the Spanish Liga and are once again the team everyone has an eye on in the draw.
Player to watch: Lionel Messi
Perhaps the most consistent side in the competition – just the Italian champions and Dortmund remain undefeated – Juve helped depose the holders, Chelsea FC, in the group stage with a 3-0 matchday five home win. They were clinical in the round of 16, seeing off Celtic FC 5-0 on aggregate and Antonio Conte has blended a potent mix of experience campaigners (Andrea Pirlo, Gianluigi Buffon) and those reaching the peak of their powers (Claudio Marchisio, Arturo Vidal, Leonardo Bonucci) in his current Bianconeri vintage.
Player to watch: Arturo Vidal
8. FC Bayern München
Bayern were looking in ominous form at both home and abroad until Wednesday’s 2-0 home defeat by Arsenal FC. It may prove to be just a blip with their 3-1 win in north London in the first leg testament to the all-round excellence of the runaway Bundesliga leaders. Javi Martínez has given Jupp Heynckes’s side something extra in midfield and they will be looking to atone for last season’s heart-breaking final defeat on penalties in their own stadium.

TIPS BUAT PENCARI GAJI TINGGI
Besarnya gaji yang kita dapat dari pekerjaan kita merupakan salah satu pertimbangan utama untuk memilih pekerjaan. Namun ada beberapa saran agar pencari kerja bisa menemukan profesi yang benar-benar tepat.
- Jika kita adalah sarjana yang baru lulus kuliah (fresh graduate), jangan jual mahal. Lulusan perguruan tinggi manapun posisi tawarnya masih rendah. Jika menulis besar gaji yang diharapkan, jangan terlalu tinggi. Sesuaikan dengan standar perusahaan yang dilamar.
- Saat baru pertama bekerja, jangan melihat besarnya perusahaan dan gaji yang ditawarkan. Sebaiknya bukalah kesempaytan selebar-lebarnya untuk mencari pengalaman. Setelah berpengalaman, kita bisa pindah ke perusahaan lain atau level perusahaan dengan standar gaji yang lebih tinggi.
- Bekali diri dengan dengan sikap dan perilaku yang baik, misalnya memiliki integritas, bisa bekerja dalam tim, tahan terhadap tekanan, dan sejenisnya. Semua perusahaan dengan standar gaji tinggi pasti punya standar tinggi dalam hal ini.
- Ini merupakan saran oldish, tapi masih relevan. Bekali diri dengan kemampuan berbahasa inggris yang baik, written and oral. Hampir semua pekerjaan dengan gaji tinggi menuntut pekerja untuk sering berkomunikasi dalam bahasa internasional.
- Saat melamar pekerjaan di sebuah perusahaan, pelajari terlebih dahulu segala hal seperti visi dan misi perusahaan, budaya perusahaan, sistem pengembangan karir. Satu hal yang penting, walaupun pelamar bukan yang terbaik dalam psikotes, ia bisa saja menjadi kandidat yang dipilih jika ia menguasai hal-hal di atas.
- Ketika melamar kerja, pahami betul deskripsi pekerjaan tersebut. Beberapa pekerjaan yang sangat mirip bisa saja memiliki tugas yang sangat berbeda
- Jika mau pindah kerja, pahami etikanya. Pindah kerja jelas tidak dilarang, tapi terlalu sering pindah malah membuat seseorang tidak diminati. Batas yang dianjurkan, sebaiknya pindah kerja setelah tiga tahun.
- Apap pun latar belakang pendidikan kita, kita berkesempatan menempati posisi-posisi dengan gaji tinggi.Memang beberapa jenis pekerjaan membutuhkan keahlian spesifik, misalnya geologi, accounting, teknik informasi, keuangan, hukum, dan sebagainya. Namun, fakta di dunia kerja banyak menunjukkan bahwa sarjana pertanian menjadi manajer pemasaran atau penjualan, sarjana teknik menjadi manajer keuangan, arsitek menjadi presiden direktur, dan banyak lagi.
- Terakhir, jangan memaksakan diri meraih profesi tanpa kompetensi. Ukur kemampuan diri sendiri . Jangan semata-mata melihat pekerjaan gaji yang ditawarkan, tapi lihatlah profesi itu secara menyeluruh sebagai sebuah paket yang bisa membuat kita berkarya dalam kinerja terbaik.
Disadur dari “intisari”
So, menurut saya bekerja itu bukan soal berapa gaji yang akan masuk ke bank account anda, tetapi apa yang dapat anda berikan kepada perusahaan. Kemudian lingkungan tempat bekerja, kenyamanan, teman-teman dan tantangan yang akan membuat anda lebih baik lagi. Syukuri pekerjaan anda sekarang dan jangan pernah mengeluh. Last but not least, entrepreneur is the best. Someday I have to be Carlos Slim or Bill Gates! 😀
Well, I am not adhering to Real Madrid strictly, but that is the most club I like in Spanish La Liga. How about you? I think if you are not pick Real Madrid as your favorite club, I guess you are a Barcelona fans, right?
Real Madrid 2-1 Barcelona
As my thought about el clasico in 26th jornada, Real Madrid won although Mourinho played his rotation, save the key players to confront Manchester United in 2nd leg Champions League, such as Ronaldo, Ozil, Di Maria, and Khedira. They intended to get at least 1 point, because their gap to Barcelona is 16 points. It’s almost mission impossible for them to grab the top of the table.
Real Madrid has defeated Barcelona 2-1 with goal from Benzema and Sergio Ramos. Messi equalised first after Benzema’s goal. I think the second half si more dreadful than the first half despite two goals ocurred. After all, I enjoyed the whole game! Hala Madrid!
Manchester United 1-2 Real Madrid
I couldn’t say, what a classy match! Real Madrid goes throuh to quarter final after beat Manchester United 1-2 at The Old Trafford. It was full of drama, brilliant tactic from the both of coach, and referee’s decision that change the game.
Well, in the starting line up, Sir Alex left out Wayne Rooney and Japanese hattrick scorer last match against Norwich City, Shinji Kagawa on the bench. He was favouring Luis Nani and “the giggsy” Ryan Giggs to play his 1000 matches on the flank, Ferdinand and Vidic on the central defense. Meanwhile, Madrid played their best XI, except Gonzalo Higuain was upfront rather than Karim Benzema.
In the first half, the game such a bored game. Madrid can’t open the United’s defense, even a through pass or close range shot. Ryan Giggs played so courageous and he did a much better defensive job than Rooney in Santiago Barnebeu. Xabi Alonso stuck tightly because Wellbeck always preventing him getting anytime on the ball and forcing him into simple negative passes out to the full backs.
Manchester United took the lead after Sergio Ramos’ own goal. He misunderstood to clear Nani’s crossing. But at the 10 minutes earlier in the second half, Turkish referee, Cuneyt Cakir gave Nani a red card for high challenge on Alvaro Arbeloa. A bit controversy, because Nani’s eyes on the ball, not the opponent, and he was trying to control rather than win it from Arbeloa.
Credit must go to Mourinho. He reacted intelligently and quickly. Mourinho directly changed Arbeloa, replaced by Luka Modric. Khedira was going to the right side. It was proven, because Modric equalised with a brilliant long range strike. Real Madrid winning goal presented by United former, CR7. He decided not to celebrate his goal. After referee blew a final whistle, Manchester United was eliminated 1-2 over Real Madrid (aggregate 2-3). Mourinho admitted his team played didn’t well, the best team wast lost.
Hi Football lovers,
I know you are can’t wait to watch the BBVA Laliga Espana tonight (me actually) 😀
Yeah, you’re right, El Clasico! We’ve just watched this clash in the midweek, it was in Copa del Rey 2nd leg semifinal. Real Madrid successfully dumb off The Catalans at Nou Camp 1-3 with the brace from CR7 and the French young energetic Madrid’s savior on the 1st leg, Raphael Varane. Barcelona just scores from Jordi Alba at the end of the match. But tonight, it is in La Liga, and I think this game not important to Madrid because they left 16 points behind El Barca. Moreover, in the next midweek, Real Madrid should be confront to Manchester United at 2nd leg UEFA Champions League. So, it’s just about prestige which team is the best in Spain. And for Barcelona side, they will try to get back their confidence since Tito Vilanova is in surgery.
