What a Joke :)

Menurut kamus online, kata "joke" adalah :

1. something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or a prankish act: He tells very funny jokes. She played a joke on him.
2. something that is amusing or ridiculous, especially because of being ludicrously inadequate or a sham; a thing, situation, or person laughed at rather than taken seriously; farce: Their pretense of generosity is a joke. An officer with no ability to command is a joke.
3. a matter that need not be taken very seriously; trifling matter: The loss was no joke.
4. something that does not present the expected challenge; something very easy: The test was a joke for the whole class.

Tapi kalo liat di kamusku, pencarian kata "joke" akan menemukan Penilaian Final Tahun 2012 atas nama saya.

Lost in Translation

Working in a world class company means you got a lot of exposure to foreigners. Better looking but still as salesmen, they tried to sell their product persistently. A kind of determination I really needed. On meetings, they often nodded as if they understood what we were talking in Bahasa Indonesia, just to please the future client. And they took every opportunity to speak to deliver a bigger chance to succeed, to sell the product we scarcely needed.  

My favourite moment was when Mr Bule said "Can i speak in English?" before he spoke. 

Yeah sure you can, Dude. But I bet a lot of us did not understand.
