The Essence of "sapimalas"

To quote Sartre's, "existance precedes essence", would sounds like I am being a pompous
philosophical ass who hang out in a cafe all day, wearing all black from head to toe and puffing smoke everytime I talks. Believe me, I'm not. I am also not an atheist either for having a belief upon those existentialism jargon. I only adore the thought that claims human being create the meanings of their life, by their choices. As opposed to the belief that human was created in a pre-destined way and so they only can be that way.
Blogging, for me, is one way to exist. To choose something and let the world know about it. Proving existance that in our mundane daily life would not have been noticed except if you are an imprissoned skanky heiress. sapimalas means "lazy cow" in Indonesian. Why? It is who I am :-)
From now on, I promise myself to type and to think more, to let all the voices in my head find their way out through my tapping fingers so it wouldn't get lost or blow up in my chaotic cabinet of curiosities. sapimalas will be about what I think, choices that I made, what I see in places that I live and visit and anything in between.
