The Bavinger House!! Must SEE before you leave Oklahoma

Especially for people from outside Oklahoma or particularly for International Students!! You guys need to experience the Norman secret treasure. It's a great experience and I bet you will LOVE it tremendously Ironically, many local Norman people do not recognize the Bavinger House. That stinks man.

The Bavinger House is a MUST see before you leave Oklahoma!

I ain't joking.

Ya know, I am so glad I got the opportunity to check out the hidden treasure of Norman, Oklahoma.


I know yall raved so much about Norman the college town - University of Oklahoma with its famous football game but seriously Norman is not all about the university. There are plenty of things to see that is not associated with the University of Okahoma and one of them is the miraculous Bavinger House!

Let me explain further, again, Norman is not all about OU campus. Norman is way cooler than that.

Norman is like a jewel hidden inside a clam, heh, yah, whatever you call em. Some of you (or, maybe all of you, eh?) might be confused with my statement. But, seriously, yall are blind with the amazing ambient from the university of Oklahoma that catched your eyes and so on and so you always associate norman as part of the University of Oklahoma and there is nothing to do in Norman except to visit the beautiful OU campus. Again, NORMAN is more than that!! I just want to open your mind that there are more cool stuff to see in Norman.

Nah, I want you to give a shot for Bavinger House! I bet you will like it!

Bavinger House which is located in Norman, OK is such a strange-open-space house with a weird roof like a witch hat.

Bavinger house was built and completed in 50's and it was solely built for a private house purpose. Later on the owner decided to open the house for public. Since the owner let the house open for public, the Bavinger House has become one of the top architctures in the United States.



The owner passed away in 2000-ish (I think) so the son took over the house. As I talked to the son, he said he is currently working on the house renovation. Unfortunately, the renovation cost is not cheap and there are lot of stuffs in the hosue that need to be fixed so he wished more people come and donate so he can get done with the house renovation sooner.

So, I am writing in my blog hoping some people may accidentally visit my blog and become interested to check out the Bavinger House. I think it's important to preserve it because Bavinger House is the most valuable precious treasure that must be preserved for the sake of science, art, architecture, engineering and the future generations.

I persoanlly think that the bavinger house is the best among the best attraction I have ever seen in Oklahoma. It is beautiful yet mysteriously seductive that I want to visit again.

The cave kitchen


Anyways, to me Bavinger house is like Flinstone cave house mixed with Tarzan tree house with interior design from 60's style and some culture fusion and eco-green organic preservation.

(Let's check out wikipedia..hiihihii)

The walls are covered with rocks

I think the elements of culture have a great influence in the bavinger house interior style. For instance, I saw a chinesse round table on the first floow and I saw a mattress inside a box/floor on the second floor that if you didnt notice carefully you would have thought the owner slept on the floor without bed. It reminds me of the japanesse bedding style.

At one point you feel you were at the western part and when you walk to the other side of house, you feel that you were at the chinesse "atmosphere". When you go upstair, you feel you were visiting Tarzan's tree house.


Since, I am too lazy to write on my own words about the Bavinger House, I am going to copy and paste some whatever from the wikipedia. I know, I know, wikipedia is not the most trusted source but at least I can give you a big picture with what the hell is going on with the Bavinger House.

The Chinesse style Dining Table. You can turn around the table like in Local Chinesse Dim Sum restaurant.

"The Bavinger House was completed 1955 in Norman, Oklahoma, United States. It is the best-known building designed by architect Bruce Goff. The house was awarded the 25-Year Award from the American Institute of Architects in 1987 for being the signature building of a master architect. It was built by Nancy and Eugene Bavinger, the residents of the house, who were artists. During its construction the family opened their home to curious visitors each weekend, charging them $1 in admission, eventually making over $50,000. Eventually they decided not to let anyone see the house because they did not want to be disturbed while living there. This helped to offset the construction cost of the home. In a 1955 article, Life magazine featured the Bavinger House. The Bavinger House is now open for tours every weekend. The Bavinger House is back and Open to the public effective December 18th." - Wikipedia

Pretty much what the wikipedia said about the Bavinger House. zzZZZzzzzz

More info about The Bavinger House:

Can you find the mattress?

Open space bedroom. Yep, no privacy so you cant do any "private" stuff , ya know what im saying...

The heater. The house was still chilly although the heater was on =((

Now, let's check out more pictures of the Bavinger House. I know I suck at taking good pictures but whatever...who cares, yah?

First Floor with mini fish pound

Close up picture of the rocks cover the house wall


Nice crystal clear blue (glass flakes). they are everywhere in the house.artsy

The roof resembles a witch hat, aight?

The access to the wooden bridge was close for temporary due to the major renovation in that area.

I love the view. a rock in the middle. stunning.

As I said in previous pic, the crystal blue thingie are everywhere in the house. I wonder if I can have some for my necklace pendant.

I photoshoped! random pic.

I dont know what these are but they look like head of bears. Yo know the scary fury animal. Bear.



Gosh, I miss my blog sooo much

*smoochies my pizookie blog, hugs and kissess...mmmuuahhhh!!!

I am busy doing nothing LOL. LOL. LOL. Oh, yeah, I was wondering why people used "LOL" and "WTF" in like every sentence in their blog. Hmm??? Are these people running out vocabulary? or, maybe "wtf" and "lol" are like salt and pepper. You feel something is missing without "LOL" or "wtf".

You know what Im saying. You need salt and pepper whatsoever on your meal coz you dont want to taste ol' plain on your plate.

Speaking of vocabulary, you know, I took some time to practice pronouncing "vocabulary" word. Yo know what I am saying like I can say "vocabulary" word perfectly like other english native speaker. Seriously, tt's hard to say it for the first time and it was emberrassing coz people though I was saying " Fuck a Berry ?:)


What the hell man, I was saying vocabulary, man, you shall fix em your ear. Your ear may have some shits that you need a drill man coz they are hard like rocks--hardcore ear wax. Eh, ear wax sounds funky, I like too call em earpoops or earshits coz they sound awesome.

Anyways, my friend taught me how to say "Vocabulary" like normal english sounds,


Anyways, let's get back to our business. Whew.Let's started. Dude, come on dude, stop humping the horses. wtf.

Hhahha, so random.sigh. I am supposed to write about the Bavinger House!! I promise to that old man that I will upload the bavinger pics on my blog. sigh. Oh well...

Shall we continue to pursue the mysterious bavinger house???

stay tuned dude, hola, hola^^

Btw, I took the picture!!!!

Sigh, I need Botox!!!

Looking at myself in the mirror.

and, ..sob..sob

I can't believe I already have wrinkles on my forehead. GAhhh..I am blaming the sun. Sun is the culprit...*sigh. Eh, it's my fault too not applying sunscreen. *sob *sob

Yo yo yo know, I am soo emberrassed when people staring at my face. I was like..."Umm..are they staring at my wrinkles or, hence, my fresh pimple going to erupt...golihhh...",

Yawn, I know, I should accept my imperfection and let people stare at my wrinkles and my tremendous bumps endlessely. Yawn, I know I am far below stunning category. whatever leh. You know what, I pledge myself to accept the way I am as long as Santa Claus gives me Botox ^^

Anyways.....................But, the major problem is the fine lines on my forehead...=((

"Ya'll out there whos complaining too much about little zits appear on yall chin, please, look at around yall, HELLO, stop complaining about your tiny bits that can be covered by BB cream coz mine, my damn wrinkle is sooooo visible. The goddess BB cream magic, max studio foundation, mineral powder magic whatever wont cover my wrinkle!! Frankly, you can see the super fine lines on my damn forehead from the planet mars. Yo yo happy yo."

I am 23 and I have wrinkles. I have tried every wrinkle lotions exist on the planet earth, from the cheap one such as the one from walmart to the fine pricey medicated one to reduce the appearance of my wrinkes but none of them work. so sad leh. whatever the commercial promised.whatever man.

I am still blaming the sunshine for the super delicate fine artsy wrinkles on my face. Sincerely, I regret to spend so much time outside under the sun heat and not apply sunblock. Stupid me!! I prefer to have fair skin like Xiolongnu from The return of the condor heroes (check out Xiolongnu so fair so pretty..) rather than have olive skin, deep tan and wrinkly face.--emberrassing. Seriously, have you ever seen chinesse heroine with tan skin tone and wrinkles on their forehead?

Noooo.. they are goddesss and have dewey look because they only came out at night. nonsense. nonsense yawn. Eh, I know Xiolongnu is already dead but whatever, I want to have fair skin and glowy...(dang this woman is wayy too much to handle..golih!)

Ahemm, almost forgot,

"I still dont get it why people here are very obsessed to get tan. Tan is equal with the risk of skin cancer/wrinkles/fine lines/disclorotion. I used to love sun and sun tan and run outside under sun shine but not anymore. Sun is my enemy!! If sun is my son, I will disown sun for being my son..? heh..what the ffffff???"

Btw, I just purchased Baby Face sunscreen spf 50. I know my face is not baby face but at least the sunscreen is compatible for my delicate wrinkle surface..whatever leh. Yawn, I know leh my face is soo "messy" looking not pretty leh, but I am a human too with wrinkles and wrinkles need some love too and the love comes from Botox Dear.

Whatever ah, I just don't like sun and I dont want my skin to get tan. I want to be see...mmm...maybe like korean or japanesse fair skin. Aren't their skin so lovely? I adoree their glowy dewey clean smooth skin.

I keep saying "Dewey'.egeheh..what is the fuss about it? !#$%^&ewiugvhsrghgz;bzr d nlxbgj

And bronzer is supposed to imitate the dewey look of natural sun kiss, isnt't it, right?? Yeeaahhhh,, lets rock the sunkisss...muaahhh!

You can pick any bronzer that is suitable for your face. Bronzer wont give you a cancer, just make sure when you pick a bronzer, it doesnt contain bismuth whatever because this bismuth whatever can enlarge your pores and accumulate the whiteheads and blackheads on your nose and below your lips.

"Many mineral powder brands contain bismuth watch out before you decide to buy 'em. I have problems with bare minerals because after the aplication my pores are more visible and more whiteheads appear around my mouth--just nasty look. The ugly duck is much sexier."
Anywayz, let's get back to business!!

Sun is the cause of all the wrinkles epidemic. I regret to spend so much time with sunshine. Sorry, sunshine, gotta ditch you for the sake of my face.

In conclusion, Botox is the ONLY life saver that can rescue me from the darkness of the wirinkles epidemic. Botox will be my christmas wish next year.
coz botox is soo expensive and I cannot afford it.

"Ho..ho..hoo... sweetpie, you are such a lovely girl (*whisper inside heart :egad, this woman has tons of wrinkles and acne--so gross) tell Papa Claus what do you want for christmas?" said Mr. santa claus.

Imitating the cute voice sound from japanesse anime mari chan soso chan voice kawaiii whatever,

" Papa berryy Santa Claus Kun, I want BOTOX.."..(=^.^=)

AAaHHiiyyayhahahahhaa...what the Fff..?

Anyways, loveeee the soundtrack

The Return of the condor heroes soundtrack translated to Indonesian language.

dumm..drumm.dumm duu dummm...

Dear John

I was sooo bloody disappointed yesterday because my friend cancelled the plan at the last minute. Ugh. Ayaya.

See, I spent the whole friday night just to clean up my apartment. I cleaned up all the grease that accumulated on my kitchen stove top. I wiped the sink basin and the counter. I also washed all the dirty dishes.

I vacuumed the carpet and sweeped the dust and pick up my hair that scattered everywehere on the floor.

I also spent some hours to scrub the bathtub and toilet bowl and the sink. Anyways, I found black stuff on my bathtub. Dunno what it is but its looking gross. I sprayed with clorox but it is still visible like before. Whatever.

At least my apartment is clean and neat, and I am so ready to receive compliments from my friend.


and, my friend cancelled the plan at the last minute.

Sigh. Fine.

It's alright because I have to learn how to tolerate people in any possible circumstances. Indeed, Bloody Maria still loves him and I have no plan to cast a spell that can turn him into a rabbit.

Ahem, Just kidding.

He got really busy on Friday and he got to work on Saturday too because the whatever software he was working on must be ready to use on Monday.Working on Saturday must be pain in the arse--

I hope he can visit next weekend because I really want to go to POP's at Arcadia, OK. I heard POP'S burger, milshake, and soda are famous.

Enough complaining. I still had some fun on the weekend. Dunno why, but the late night supper at raising canes indeed was really good. The chicken finger and the sauce were heaven. God bless Raising Canes.


I am definitely going to watch Dear John. The trailer is very demanding to see esp. for people of my age. Unbelievable...Channing Tatum is BLOODY handsomeee!!! HOT! We want CHANNING TATUM!!! Super tan and nice six pack...the only factor that triggers me to see Dear John (=^.^=) Sorry, Michael Bolton, I have to ditch for the sake of Channing-oh-my-so-sexy-Tatum.

and My fav. song from Dear John Ost.
by Joshua Radin & Schuyler Fisk - Paperweight

such a boring blog...^^

So weird some people still visited and commented on my blog. They must be bored to the max haha..and to kill the boredoom, they aimed to read my tedious and super lame blog entry. Hhaha...*sigh I have never had any intention to publish my blog for public consumption. The only reason I can think of is to share my story with my brother. Indeed, I am too lazy to set my blog to private. Oh well, whatever.

Late Night random thought

According to "a survey", people prefer to have sex with someone who has an STD rather than with obese people.


I need to do research to check the validty of the survey but i'm too lazy, so forget it. Anywayzzz...

Well, actually, that "unreliable" survey is right in some ways.

It is impossible to determine if someone has an STD/HIV from outside view. However, being an obese is a different story because obesity is very well recognized in the public eye. Similar issue to someone who has tons of pimples covering their face, blotchy red, or the acne white stuff going to explode. People will recognize those immediately.

Ah, come on don't pretend you don't judge people by their physical appearance. When you met somebody who have "issue" in their appearance, you automatically made a judgment although you didnt say it out loud. But, you did it, right. Don't lie to me.

To make it clear, if you were given the option whether you can "sleep" with a very attractive human being (with a hidden STD and you don't know about it) or with an overweight with full of blotchy red pimples covering face (no STD but you still don't know), which one are you most likely to go for? hence, you also forget to bring condom.

Hey, my question has nothing to do with people IQ, personality, etc. Just solely the physical appearance.

Be honest, please.

Fine, fine, don't tell, don't ask.

But, you see my point, aight? Don't get me wrong, I was not trying to discriminate. But, if some people got offended, well sorry, this is all my opinion.

Anyways, obesity is not my interest topic to discuss in further. I wanted to focus more about sexual transmitted disease.

So here we go...

Regardless of the extensive sex education campaign, some people don't dare to check upon their partner or even themselves whether they are free from STD/HIV. Frankly, some people fail to apply safe sex based on word-of-mouth trust.

"As long as you say you are clean, I believe in you", said the partner.

You never know that the young well attractive man/women you just met at a public place and ended sleeping with might have STD/HIV/herpes.

"Oooops, I forgot to use a condom, but you are clean, RIGHT?" ---nervous

Think twice before you are so excited to risk your own health. If you aim to spend the rest of your life with your partner on the same bed, you and your partner shall voluntarily see the doctor, better safe than sorry later.

Some people claimed they are genius but they are so irresponsible for their sexual action. One of my male friend argued if you ask/persuade/force your partner to see a doctor, it means you don't trust your partner sincerely. He also added that we have to trust our partner based on "his or her words-of-mouth" if we really DO love him/her.

What a statement! For heaven's sake, we are not talking about trust, we are talking the matter for being safe.

The moral of the story: mm..nothing. Just be safe. I guess.

Domino's Pizza is Superb!!!

Kudos to Domino's Pizza Customer Care!!!

They take care of their customers !! They listen to the criticism even the harsh one!!!

I was not expecting that they would contact me via e-mail. Well, I posted on their twitter that I was completely disappointed with the new hand tossed pizza whatever they advertised in I had been deceived and chated by their exaggerated Advertising!!!!!

Here is the story,

After watching pizzaturnaround in youtube, I decided to order Domino's pizza and I said on the phone explicitly that I wanted to get the new robust sauce, tasty cheese, and new crust pizza with beef topping. I was so excited waiting for the delivery guy that I couldnt control my saliva....

My expectation was so high and I demanded the new improved tasty Domino's pizza!!


Aha! The delivery guy. I opened the door with a big smile, so excited seeing Domino's pizza box. Yay!! So Happy!! Yummy, yummy!!! Happy happy fun fun!!

So, I opened the pizza box with full of joy. I took one slice and *silent ....................

My heart immediately dropped.

I was soooo effing mad (plus my struggle in math problems) that resulted into a huge volcanic eruption. The pizza was tasteless. The sauce still taste like the old Domino's. No improvement at all. I had been decived and cheated by Domino's Pizza new Ads!! Effing Liar!!! I demand my 9 dollars back!!! ROOOAARRRR.

So, I wrote on Domino's twitter regarding my big disappointment and threatened them that I would never ever visit their website nor order their shitty Domino's pizza. Like I said, I was not expecting they would reply my twitter.

They responded to my complaint via twitter. They also asked for my e-mail address. Here is below the conversation between me and Domino's.

Domino's Pizza:

"Hi, moving this here from Twitter so we can have full conversations. Can you tell me what happened? You never got your pizza? Have you contacted us before?"


Dear Phil,

I dont have any particular problem with the pizza. However, my big concern is to try out the new crust and new robust sauce and tasty cheese from Domino's pizza. That's all I want no more, no less.

So, I ordered the new crust pizza (hand tossed) with beef toppings after I saw the video of new pizzaturnaround in youtube. I had a big hope. Unfortunately, It turned out not like what I expected. It was completely tasteless. After I ordered, I was like.."Oh well.." and I never visited the website nor order Domino's pizza because of a big disappointment.

But last night, I dont know what driven me to visit your website again and I found that some people were experiencing the same disappointment* like what I had with Domino's Pizza in Norman, OK. The problem is some Domino's franchise do not fully understand how the taste of pizza is so important.

Some people have witnessed the new handtossed pizza is sooo delicious and taste like heaven. Nah, I am so jealous with these people who got to try the real new hand tossed pizza.

My hope is to order the real new hand tossed with new robust sauce and tasty cheese crust pizza by next week. Please ensure the new revolution in pizza and robust sauce and awesome cheese are available in Dominos Norman, OK.

I am not asking for your free marchendise or free dominos coupons whatever but all I want is to experience the new rigorous tasty pizza.

*Accroding to twitter

Domino's Pizza:

Thanks for sending over, I’ve passed this on to our customer care team. So sorry for this.

Alright, I will give Domino's Pizza one more shot. I am planing to order the "real" new Pizza on the weekend. Why on the weekend? because my friend from Tulsa is coming over. I know it's not related to my issue with Domino's. I will keep yall updated. Who ya'll? haha nobody...just for myself. I will keep myself updated with Domino's pizza.

Final Decision

I have been juggling to make the right decision for myself.

I am not really happy with my score although I can still apply to a very limited graduate school. To make it worse, one of the university advisor wanted me to re-consider to take GMAT again. FML. And, she mentioned in e-mail about applying for a scholarship.HUH? Are you kidding me?

I cannot grab the meaning attention behind her interest by convincing me to take GMAT again so I can apply for a scholarship. Is this the sign of sort of a positive attitude or indirect way to say, "sweetie, you are not qualified to apply to our university."


With my current GPA, me granted with a scholarship? That is so far beyond possible. I have a doubt. Considering a scholarship? For me to get accepted is a miracle. I spent freaking 1.5 month to work out on my fugly GMAT. Happy news to all my haters, the result was below my expectation. Yeah, go laugh and smile and shag the hippos.

I discussed my issue with my dad. As it is always, Dad wanted me to retake it and if it doesnt work I shall go back to Indonesia. I told him there are some school willing to accept me. He insisted I shall take it again.

At this point, I just wanted to cry. What I hate the most in my life is to touch GMAT books. Every single day I spent hours on dining table writing questions with a big gulp, hair loss, wight gain, and pimples covering my forehead. Every single night I prayed. This is what I got. What have I done wrong to myself?

I am ashamed of myself. =(

I suffer from GMAT. If soomeone ever mentiones about people suffering from earthquake, please let me punch his or her face and taste the blood because I am so bloody mad. I dont give a damn pennies to listen to all people crap.

I have no interest with pep talks that I have to be grateful because there are some peope out there whose life are much worse than mine. I have enough. Period. You want to talk about earthquake survivor, clean water, poverty, HIV/Aids, children famine, well sorry dude, this is not the place to start the discussion. This is my blog--the best place ever to complaint.

Stop whining* slap my face

I will give another two-month-shot and see how far I can go from there. Only God knows my future. Gear up the lazy brain and stretch it out.

Anywyas, for God's sake, I hate my neighbor and his friends who like to peep my apartment thorough the window. I hate them. What are they looking for? to steal some of my stuff or plan to molest and rape me?? Perverts. I shall call cops but I cant coz I dont have the evidence and they probably will be angry at me for wasting their time. I am hoping these two things (stealing and molesting) wont happen otherwise f**k my life. Thou shalt be brought down to Hell.

One more reason to move out from Oklahoma.

As far as for the action, I covered up the window with my awesome green-red sari sarong. I have no interest to buy a curtain and yes I need to save money so I wont spend for things that I will regret by the end of july.

Alright, two month shot. Whatever the result I will move on and ignore the vixen evil who is laughing celebrating my failure.

To make it clear about my previous entry, I am not obsessed with older males. However, I admire older men or women because of their outstanding performance (eg. promiment senator, famous singer). So, don't get me wrong if I am fascinated with John Edwards or Michale Bolton.
