The brilliance of slacker

Some colleagues of mine in a company taught a me a nice trick of using the below picture as my desktop background. They recognize that [Windows]+D or show desktop button responses a lot faster compared to [Alt]+[Tab]. Do you see the intention of using this trick? :-)

Concerning Ponds's 2007-2008 episodic TV ads in Indonesia

The woman who still loves him in all those years is pretty although her skin is not white yet. And I have a feeling that she won't be as pretty as she is right now when her skin become white-ish pale because of Ponds.. Damn consumer goods industry and their method in changing people's standard of beauty.

Anyway, I don't know whether it's just me or the woman's acting is very good. I feel like I really experience her surprise seeing him hugging another woman after being separated in all these year. I feel her pain of still loving him and knowing that he is about to be married to someone else. I feel her indecision in whether to send an SMS saying that she still loves him. I feel her bitter feeling when she actually sent an SMS wishing his happiness. I feel her depression after receiving the fake SMS from his soon-to-be-wife pretending that he doesn't want to see here anymore, ever.

Now, if I remember it right, all TV ads displayed since 2008 in Indonesia must be created by Indonesian advertising firms. I must give a 2 thumbs up for them creating such an appealing ads.

I'm sorry that I don't provide any information concerning this advertisement, yet.
