After showing off a concept version at the Tokyo auto show events 23 October to 4 November 2009 ago, Honda Motor Co. eventually. Ltd. to market Honda's Compact Renaissance Zero, or the CR-Z coming in February specifically for the Japanese market.
Honda CR-Z After that Honda will bring it to the European variant and the U.S. in the second half of 2010.
Brochures and advertising in virtual worlds such as Honda called motorauthority explained, the car will use gasoline engines 1500 cc four-cylinder power capable of spraying up to 114 horsepower at 6000 rpm.
While maximum torque, 145 Newtonmeter (Nm) at 4.800rpm.
Conventional engine with an electric motor that tech dikimpoikan typical Honda - Honda's Integrated Motor Assist (IMA), which generates up to 13.5 horsepower. Honda hybrid sports variant of this system is equipped with six-speed manual transmission.
But Honda also offers a choice of automatic transmission technology with continuously variable transmission (CVT), a six-speed. With the technology transfer rate of acceleration of the more subtle and barely felt.
The car was called the embodiment of Honda's commitment to the environment, both as an effort to meet the market demand for Honda, as called Takanobu Ito, chief executive at the July 2009 Honda ago.
"This plan (to produce a hybrid variant-ed) was done as part of Honda's new direction change in order to meet the demand for hybrid cars continue to rise," I Ito at the time.
But unfortunately, until now there has been no official explanation how the car was dibanderol
That said, Toyota as the manufacturer behind the launch of the Lexus LFA is willing to take the loss just to release this one product. It could be true when considering so many technologies that grafted Toyota on this one car. That said, 60% more than the car is made from carbon fiber so that the total weight of this car also can be pressed maximally.
LFA Project was started in the year 2000 and five years later, the Lexus under Toyota showcase this car in concept form at the Detroit auto show. Lexus plans to release only 500 units started in 2010. Lexus will produce only about 20 cars per month until the quota was met in about two years. Not only that, Lexus is also planning to select the applicants before allowing them to bring this car home.
Just caught a glimpse of this already appears that LFA is an exotic car. There are only two seats are provided Lexus LFA. V-10 engine capacity 4.800cc placed at the front as the engine power output is transferred to the rear wheels because the coupe is not using all-wheel drive system. This machine is capable of generating power at 553 horsepower with a maximum speed of around 325km per hour.
As mentioned earlier, 65% part of this car made of carbon fiber while the remaining 35% made of aluminum. This is also the cause of this LFA project so long in penggodokan included. Lexus initially planned to create a framework of aluminum in the middle of the project but plans have changed and now the frame is made of woven carbon fiber. These decisions have an impact on the total weight of about 100kg.
The use of carbon fiber was not only lose weight because of the desire car. According to chief engineer of the Lexus, with a carbon fiber body, the angle can be made more sharply so that the level was also increased aerodynamic. In testing, Car and Driver recorded a waktu3, 7 seconds to reach speed of 100km per hour. In addition this site also mentions that in high speed, it still remains stable LFA ridden.
This site is also mentioned in the matter of control, it feels very solid LFA although fully using electronic systems. Even if there are complaints, this site just to mention a little rough on the transmission mode is more automatic and the manual suggests using a more refined system. Agreed with Car and Driver Car Magazine is the opinion although the site is also mentioned that the design of instruments in the dashboard includes interesting. CNet did not mention the fact almost none of the weaknesses of the cars that they consider the evolution of the Toyota Supra
Update looks as if nothing had stopped at the Toyota car models. In later 2010, which in turn is the Toyota Auris facelift.
That a hatchback car with a Corolla platform is going through changes not only interior but also exterior. Auris would glide in England next year it will change the shape grille and bumper. The main lights would look more dynamic and different from existing models. Similarly bonnetnya.
At first glance, if observed, the Auris is almost similar to the Toyota Yaris. Increasing more views exist on the shape and design alloy wheels. Cyclic form is more sporty wheels with multi-beam design.
On the interior, comes with new colors and a touch of the materials that have better quality, especially at the highest version. Secured passengers who sat in it will feel more comfortable.
At the circumference of the wheel there is the ease in moving an automatic transmission. Toyota Auris has been equipped with gear shifting feature on the wheel. The result?
Driver response is more responsive because the process of moving teeth easily accessible with a finger or more ergonomic. Performance 1,800 cc engine fitted with CVT technology, so more subtle acceleration.
Another good news is the people of Europe, especially England would rather be in determining the type most interested in the Toyota Auris. The reason Toyota also intends to offer a hybrid version.
Hybrid Auris scheduled to be made in assembly plants in the UK, but the new Toyota will officially announce the end of this year. Santer news came Auris Hybrid will use the same technology with the Prius.
To monitor the extent to which the European community responses to the most environmentally friendly version of this, Toyota Auris will conduct tests with the Hybrid was the first time in England later in 2010

Even a special site about 125 cc Yamaha Xeon already appeared on the official site of Yamaha.
And what about this Xeon motor specs? Well, this time to give clarity specifications detikOto scooter Yamaha Mio Yamaha Mio 125 cc or 125 cc.
As quoted from the official site of Yamaha, Wednesday (04/28/2010) Yamaha 125 Xeon adopt cooled liquid that serves to control the temperature so the temperature at Yamaha claimed the engine remains stable.
Yamaha Xeon compression pressure is higher and more maximum power. But not explained whether the compression is higher than its competitors or scooter variants lower class below him.
For that detikOto try to compare with the Yamaha Mio Soul. As a comparison, 113.7 cc Yamaha Mio Soul, or variants of Yamaha's scooter highest current compression is 8.8: 1 with a maximum of 8.9 ps energy in 8000
rpm. While torque is 7.84 Nm at 7000 rpm. But if Yamaha claims 125 cc Yamaha Xeon higher, means it can be imagined how much compression Xeon Yamaha 125 cc.
In addition Xeon Yamaha 125 cc Cylinder DiASil also adopted a working quickly to keep the engine in order not to wear and machine condition remains stable.
Cylinder DiASil technology can also maintain long-lasting Forged Piston. Technology DiASil Forged Piston Cylinder and also immersed in Jupiter MX 135 cc.
Yamaha Throttle sensor pin on the Xeon 125 cc, so in addition to fuel economy, acceleration is also better because it fit with the opening of the carburetor, and RPMs.
While for the exhaust, 125 cc Yamaha Xeon contain elements of sportiness. Where pinned protective heat shock and the use of catalysts which function to reduce excessive exhaust emissions. Given that Yamaha claims 125 cc Xeon very friendly environment.
While the watchlist detikOto some time ago, the body size of 125 cc Yamaha Xeon is not far different from the big body of Suzuki SkyDrive almost the same alias. And for a fancy, Xeon also uses the cover of dusk light handlebar.
Add curious huh? Patiently waiting on the game later on Friday, April 30, 2010.
The wheelbase of the 8 500 has been stretched by 13 centimeters to ensure that corporate honchos and / or world leaders in the back aren't left wanting for leg room. However, BMW stretched its 7 series by one centimeter more, 14 to be precise, in the 750Li. 80 let's delve a little deeper, shall we - to see if the 8 500L can once again profess to be the 'best car in the world,' and reclaim the top spot on the sales charts for the coveted three-pointed star?
From the outside
The current generation S class was introduced in 2005-in India in 2006-and preceded the svelte W220, which, in appearance, was the epitome of understated elegance. The W221 grew to be far more aggressive and shapely, while finding a happy medium between the tank-like S class of yesteryear and the sleek Mercs of today. In 2009, Mercedes tinkered with the S Class in an effort to bring its appearance up-to-date by adding an array of now customary LED lights-both front and rear.
The front end looks more purposeful with added chrome and a redesigned bumper, as well as a more pointed edge. At the rear, this Mercedes flagship wears its S 500 badge proudly. It also has a massive set of rectangular dual exhausts that hint at the serious firepower under hood. The design, on the whole, has just the right combination of curves and creases-the end result is a car hat looks a dominant force going down the road, which of course, is the point.
From the inside
At the recent launch of the S sooL, Dr. Wilfried Aulbur, MD & CEO, Mercedes Benz India, pointed out that this particular model is the most expensive car ever made in India, as it's being carefully assembled at their new state-of-the-art facility in Pune - unlike its Bavarian compatriot, which comes in fully assembled as a CBU. And you need only set one foot inside the cabin of the S 500 to see that it is, indeed, money well spent. In fact, even as you open the doors, you notice the individual shockers in each door to ensure that you don't expend any more energy than absolutely necessary to open and close the soft-close-doors - should your chauffeur be slow to react for some godforsaken reason.
Once inside, there's acres of room in the rear, and every surface has a quality feel to it - even the buttons look decidedly decorative, and feel just as good. There was a time in the recent past, during the days of the Daimler-Chrysler merger, when you could in fact find fault with certain pieces of interior trim in a Mercedes - even in an S Class. But such asuggestion is unequivocally banished into the dusty pages of the history books by the current models.
It's eerily silent in the cabin - ideally suited, I suppose, to plan strategy for your next corporate takeover and / or military coup, depending on your line of work. This car is meant to soothe its occupants. In fact, legend has it that Mercedes actually strapped heart rate monitors onto occupants of the S Class, as well as cars made by rival manufacturers, in an attempt to prove that the heart rate of those in the S Class was, on average, roughly five beats-per-minutes less than that of people in other cars.
And it's the little touches that achieve this, such as seat massagers that truly provide the illusion that there are a team of masseurs hiding in the seatback, and head rests that are so soft and fluffy that they truly cradle your head - so that you can do your best thinking presumably. And while it was very business-like in the all-black interior of our test car, the panorama roof was brilliant, and it made the already expansive interior feel even bigger. However, if you are feelingbusinesslike, there are exquisitely moulded walnut tray tables that fold out of the seat backs. On the contrary, if you'd like some R&R, simply recline your seat, and pull out a bottle of your favourite beverage from the fridge in the back - accessed from in between the rear seats.
You can also watch a DVD on the two screens mounted on the back of the front headrests for added entertainment. In fact, even the front passenger can watch a DVD while the car's on the move - courtesy of 'Splitview' technology incorporated onto the 8-inch high-definition TFT screen in the center console, which allows the driver to view vehicle functions from his vantage point, while, at the same time, the front passenger can watch a movie from his. You also get a now customary USB input in the glove box that allows iPod connectivity quiteeasily - unlike in the 7 series, which requires a proprietary cable from BMW. The Harman Kardon Logie-r surround sound system delivers eoo-watts of absolutely astonishing sound quality from its 14 speakers for your choice of media, whichcan range from an iPod, USB stick, SD card, to CD / DVD, or even 2,500 of your favourite tunes in MP3 or WMA format saved in a 7.2 GB in-built hard disc.
And for the driver, there's the Command system that navigates through vehicle functions via a screen on the center console, as well as a multi function steering wheel that controls a myriad of other functions, including Bluetooth connectivity - all of which is displayed on the instrument cluster in direct view of the driver. In order to display all the requisite information, the S Class has a digital speedometer projected on an LCD screen - complete with faux speedo needle. The good thing is that all these various bits of technology work extremely well together to keep you both well informed and relaxed at the same time. Oh, and you can also change the colour of the mood lighting in the car to suit your present disposition - ranging from Solar (yellow), Polar (blue), To natural (white).
On the road
The S 500 doesn't feel propelled so much by an engine, as it does by an invisible force. The 5.4 litre V8 that produces 370 horsepower is sublime-as is the 7-speed automatic transmission to which it's mated. The engine really is incredible smooth-it feels exactly the same at 1500 rpm as it does at 6500. The gearbox, meanwhile, has similar qualities, as shifts are instant and indistinguishable. That being said, there's nothing subtle about how the S class thunders down the road-leaving on-lookers and passengers in absolute disbelief that something this large can move quite so swiftly.
The S 500 gives up about 40 horsepower to the BMW 745Li, and while you do feel the deficit on occasion, it's only because the motor in the BMW appeared to be stolen from a rocket launcher. Nevertheless, Mercedes claim a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of, brace yourself, 5.4 seconds! Step on the acceleration pedal, and the whole car shrinks around you in a manner that you don't quite expect. If you imagine that the current S class will feel large and lumbering to drive, you're in for either a rude shock or a pleasant surprise-depending on your point of view.
Nevertheless, the rate of progress you can achieve in this car is staggering.150km\h is achieved in the smallest of open spaces with consummate ease-in case you're running late for a board meeting that is, And, based on how far behind schedule you really are, you can choose between three driving models-comfort, sport, and manual. Comfort, as the name suggests, ensures that engine and suspension are ideally suited to waft you from place-to-place. Sport mode, on the other hand, readies the suspension for some hooliganism, and the engine revs considerably freeier as well. In manual mode, you can change gears via paddles mounted behind the steering, which means you can hold higher revs in lower gears and burn a barrel or two of oil quicker than in a jet plane. Of course, since the S Class is engineered in Germany, these different engine and chassis setting actually do work.
The Active Body control courtesy of the air suspension ensures that the car remains defiantly flat through the corners. In fact, you can even turn off the traction control and have a little fun-in a two-tone S Class! Go into a corner too fast, and the car will understeer, but not in a way that's recalcitrant. Instead, the chassis communicates what it's doing in an effort to keep the driver informed of the physics defying feat that's being attempted. And if you're a little more clever, you can use the power being driven to the rear wheels to enjoy lurid power slides-I use the term lurid loosely of course, since the traction control cuts is despite being turned off if it feels like you're having a little too much fun.
The S Class, in keeping with its pioneering spirit in terms of technology, also has a battery of technological feats, such as adaptive cruise control, which even has the ability to bring the car to a complete halt by itself, parking guidance, which is optional, but can park the car largely by itself, infrared night view assist, also optional, but useful, pre-safe, which braces for an impact if things go pear shaped, and adaptive headlights, which, of course, are fantastic. you can even manually raise the ride height if you're going over some exceptionally bad roads-of which we have plenty. The brakes and ABS are phenomenal, which goes without saying really-we did test them nonetheless.
After experiencing the S 500L,let's just say our suggestion would be to appear magnanimous, and allow the chauffeur extended paid leave.
The competition may be treading on its toes, but you have to admit that there is something about the allure of the S Class that plays into its image of being an automotive icon, which has been carefully created over all these years. It still feels like the right car for the ruling elite. And if you're lucky enough to be able to write a check for one, you're still buying into that heritage. The 7 series BMW is by far a more serious drivers' machine - whereas the S Class does astonish you from behind the wheel, the 7 series simply blows you away.
But that also plays into the hands of the Mercedes somewhat, since being less driver oriented means that the ride comfort, and therefore rear seat comfort, in the Mercedes is unparalleled - it does seem to spoil you a little bit more than the BMW. The S Class may have become the predictable choice to demonstrate to the world that you've arrived - but it's by no means the wrong one.
Introduced all-new for the 2006 model year, the V8 Vantage was first seen at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005. The two seat, two door coupÃ© has a bonded aluminum structure for strength and lightness. The 172.5 inch (4.38 m) long coupe features a hatchback-style tailgate for practicality, with a large luggage shelf behind the seats.
The V8 Vantage is powered by a 4.3 L (4282 cc) quad-cam 32-valve V8 which produces 380 hp (283 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 302 lb-ft (409 NÂ·m) at 5,000 rpm. Though based loosely on Jaguar’s AJ-V8 engine, this engine is unique to Aston Martin and features race-style dry-sump lubrication, which enables it to be mounted low in the chassis for an improved center of gravity. The cylinder block and heads, crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, camshafts, inlet and exhaust manifolds, lubrication system, and engine management are all unique to Aston Martin. The V8 is assembled by hand at the AM facility in Cologne, Germany, which also builds the V12 for the DB9 and Vanquish.
The engine is front mid-mounted with a rear-mounted transaxle, giving a 49/51 front/rear weight distribution. The V8 Vantage can accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in a manufacturer claimed 4.9 seconds (62 mph (100km/h), 5sec) and reach a 175 mph (280km/h) top speed. As a testament to the car’s performance, handling, and endurance, an almost-stock Vantage entered and completed the 2006 Nurburgring 24-Hour race finishing 24th overall at the race, among a field of largely motorsport-homologated cars. The only modifications to the car were a roll cage, racing fuel system, fire protection, racing seat, and hydraulic jacks. The car was otherwise completely standard, including a regular production engine, transmission, suspension, and bodywork.
The V8 Vantage retails for Â£79,000, US$110,000, or â‚¬104,000, and Aston Martin plans to build up to 3,000 per year. Included is an exclusive interior with leather-upholstery for the seats, dash, steering-wheel, and shift-knob. A two-tone full-leather interior is available as an option, as are heated front seats, navigation, rear parking sensors, and xenon headlights.
There is expected to be a V8 Roadster in early 2007.
In their 2006 readership survey, readers of Car Design News voted the Aston Martin V8 Vantage as the best current production car design. The survey results were based on over 1000 responses, most from working automotive designers and students of industrial and automotive design. The vantage was also voted one of Automobile magazine’s 2007 “All Stars” for it’s performance, road manners, and design. The V8 Vantage is also one of the only two cars to be added to “the fridge” â€“ reserved for the super-”cool” â€“ on the BBC’s Top Gear (on which it is described as the baby Aston to differentiate it from the V12 powered DB9). The program rates cars from seriously un-cool to sub-zero. The fridge was an extra category added when the presenters deemed the Aston Martin DB9 too cool for the sub-zero category. In the 2005 awards, Jeremy Clarkson declared the V8 Vantage as the best car of the year, while the award winner was actually the Porsche 911. This resulted in Richard Hammond (“Hamster”) eating the piece of paper. The noise created by its V8 engine has been described by Clarkson as, “Like Tom Jones being mauled by an alsatian”.
During the 2006 British Motor Show, Aston Martin revealed a variant of the V8 Vantage that was set to go racing in the Nurburgring 24 Hours endurance race. The car, now known as the V8 Vantage N24, was driven by Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez, development engineer Chris Porrit, development driver Wolfgang Schuhbauer and Hans von Saurma in the 24 hour race and finished 4th in class and 24th overall, before being driven home on public roads. Modifications to the car include extensive lightening and strengthening, the addition of a front splitter and extended door sills for aerodynamic efficiency as well as equipment to make the car race ready (roll cage, racing fuel tank, etc.), the engine is left relatively untuned from the regular V8 Vantage, with most of the performance coming from the lightening and revised settings. The N24 is considered Aston’s rival to the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and both cars share similar performance figures, both reaching 62 mph from a standstill in 4.2 seconds. Unlike the rival Porsche however, the N24 will not cost any more than the regular car (price is currently set at about Â£82,000) as Aston does not believe in the Porsche strategy of charging more for a car with less equipment. Only around 20 or so examples of the N24 are expected to be built.

Japanese cosplay has only recently become popular in the US, boasting some 20,000+ individuals of every race, creed, and color. Yet Western cosplay does deviate from Japanese cosplay in that there's masques (masquerades), cosplay competitions that occur at conventions where cosplayers will display their costume(s) for judging and/or perform a skit on stage by themselves or with others. Prizes consisting of money, dvds, etc. are offered to the winners, varying on the category of difficulty the cosplayer entered. Many cosplayers also attend conventions for panels on various topics, Cosplay Chess (Human Chess in cosplay), and the Anime Dating Game. Japanese cosplay has even become common at movie theaters on opening nights for popular science fiction and fastasy films (like Lord of the Rings and The Matrix).
popularity of cosplay customes in the US
popularity of cosplay customes in the US is no doubt that this trend originated from the land of the rising sun, especially when people see the Tokyo Game Show on G4, but my opinion on why there is an explosion of popularity of cosplay customes in the US this trend is.... well, they don't just want to be themselves, but rather an expansion of themselves in an alternate reality, which isn't really all that bad. Escape is very much needed in today's society, and in all actuality, all of us need to join into this trend at one time in our lives, and that's what makes this trend so popular: the need to escape from ourselves and be something else. In brief terms, cos-play is so popular because people have a need to get away from themselves and have a little fun before going back to real life

Akhirnya topik kita jadi tentang itu. Kebetulan dia juga emang blom dapet cowok. Dia agak minder gitu lah, katanya “emang susah ya jadi orang gendut mah gak laku2!”
Melas banget gitu dia, gw jadi bingung juga mau ngibur gimana. Trus gw ceritain lah tentang kisah pacarannya temen2 gw. Tentang perjuangan pacarnya yg mau balikan lagi sama dia, sampe pontang-panting bahkan bikin video testimoni! Banyak dari mereka yg ‘gak bertampang’, tapi dapet2 aja tuh. Ada lagi temen gw yg
“mungkin karena temen2 lo kaya?”
Yah! Gw jadi kepikiran tentang itu. Mungkin gak mereka dapet cowok seandainya mereka gak kaya? Disini seakan2 status sosial jadi masalah juga buat dapet pacar! Terus terang gw jg sbenernya meragukan yg namanya cinta sejati itu. Bener omongan temen gw tadi, seandainya gw gak kaya, seandainya gw gak cantik, seandainya gw bodoh, seandainya gw gendut, dan masih banyak kata seandainya yg lain.
Memang, kita harus bisa terima kenyataan tentang diri kita sendiri. kita harus tetep PD, dan gak boleh minder! Gw sih yakin, semua orang punya kekurangan dan kelebihan masing2. Apapun itu, ya tetep hrs disyukuri. Tapi kalo pun kita udah nerima diri sendiri, apa mungkin pasangan kita juga mau nerima kita apa adanya? Jawabannya BELOM TENTU!
Jadi, masih percaya lo sama cinta sejati? Makan tuh cinta! Kalo cinta yang lebih luas, misalnya cinta ama Tuhan, keluarga, negara, mungkin gw masih percaya. Bahkan gw lebih menjunjung itu drpd cinta ke pasangan. Tanpa pasangan pun gw yakin hidup gw bakal BAHAGIA! Bukan berarti gw gak mau cari pasangan jg lhoo, mungkin stelah dewasa, pemikiran gw berubah? Hahhaha, who knows?
I previously did not pay attention to character, but when I saw this picture, the picture is very similar to the original characters. and I decided to put it on my blog. good cosplay.
I found this image while browsing, I think this picture was made for commercial purposes, and I display this image without permission. ^ ^ I hope not a problem, this is a cool cosplay. This is the original site where I found the picture in. www.intlwota.com
The ABT Sportsline Audi R8 V10 is powered by a tuned 5.2-liter FSI V10 engine that produces 600 hp (441 kW), an increase of 75 hp from the stock 525 hp (386 kW) and 530 Nm of torque.
With the increase of power, ABT Sportsline equipped the R8 with an adjustable sports suspension system.
ABT’s DTM division designed the body kit featuring an ABT front grille, new front air dams, new side skirts, a rear apron and a rear spoiler.
Other features include a 4-pipe exhaust system and ABT AR and BR 20-inch wheels.
Di postingan sbelumnya,
gw bilang pengen posting tentang tema ‘PERTAMA’ (bukan kaskus lhoo!). Oke, gw bakal nulis itu!
gw, menjadi anak PERTAMA! Mungkin ada enaknya juga, karena lo gak akan pake barang
bekas kakak lo, atau nge-bully waktu kecil. Ortu lo juga pasti lebih sayang ke
anak pertama nya, walaupun perbedaan nya mungkin cuma sedikit! Seenggaknya ortu
bakal lebih menyadari kalo anak pertamanya itu lebih cepet dewasa.
itu lah yg besar. Gak gampang megang kepercayaan yg diberikan ortu lo, buat
ngejagain adek2 lo yg bandel, buat jadi panutan di keluarga, buat “bahan
percobaan” awal. The point is, not easy
become an oldest sister! Karena kita
punya tanggung jawab yg lebih besar!
contoh yg baik. Kata mami papi sih,
adek2 kamu pasti mau ngikutin. Nah, kalo kakak nya aja udah gagal, gimana bisa
jadi contoh buat adek2 nya? Makanya kamu jadi anak pertama musti yg bener,
kasih contoh yg baik buat mereka!”
ngangguk aja. Padahal gw sendiri
juga butuh motivator! Masa gak ada yg jadi contoh buat gw? Kadang gw ngerasa
ini gak terlalu adil. Walaupun agak bangga juga jadi panutan, seandainya nanti
gw bener2 jadi orang yg hebat! Tapi
smua gak harus berawal dari THE
dan pemikiran yg maju! Malah kadang adek jadi jauh lebih sekses dibanding
keluarga. Misal nih, adek lo ada yg bertindak salah (apa itu sering keluyuran,
bergaul dgn temen2 yg gak bener, pacaran kelewat batas, atau adek lo jadi
pembangkang). Yah, you must become a detective in here. You should know
why they were doing that, and what’s the problem? And then you’d tell your
parents about that. It’s all your responsibility! Bukan bermaksud ngadu, tapi
lo sebagai kakak harus tau apa yg dilakuain adek lo diluar
apalagi kalo adek lo masih kecil2! Mungkin awalnya lo gak perlu ngadu dulu,
cukup dinasehatin aja kali ya? Tapi kalo kita yg ngomong dia gak mau denger?
harus lapor ortu jg ujung2 nya!
bukan gak mungkin lo bakal dibenci adek2 lo. Dibilang tukang ngadu lah, ikut
campur lah, cerewet, ribet, daaann berbagai juta alasan adek2 lo. Padahal kita
gitu buat kebaikan dia juga
Because we love them, we do this. But we must show our authority! Jangan
langsung takut! Masa takut sama adek sendiri? Ihh, gak level amat! Hahhahaa..
They understand and always respect me. Jadi, gw juga gak terlalu kewalahan sih.
But I don’t know what they think! Siapa tau cuma pura2 aja
Padahal diluar mah
aja gak begitu lah, gw percaya mereka kok..
