bung ve, your tweet is the best. very witty and true. Nunggu-nunggu tweetmu tiap hari, bisa bikin senyum-senyum sendiri pas bosan di kantor I really adore your writting skill! Kemarin beli elle yang fashion blogger itu, mau baca tentang evita si bocah ajaib itu, agak kecewa, sedikit banget ulasannya, tapi kutipan dia aja bisa ngalahin yang gede-gede ya, jujur and to point. she's like mini version of you. Dulu pernah baca tweetmu mau tampilin interview lengkapnya, ayo dong. penasaran soalnya.If she can draw smile in Ve's face it must be something good.
