humbled and blessed

Hello Everyone!

I am back. And I am sorry for being gone so long. My management, under my strong protest, cuts down my activities to bare minimum which include my commiting to stop reading and writing this blog (since I do have tendency to stay in front of the computer for a long time:). I know they meant well, so I agreed.

Hence, I practically have not read this blog for over three weeks and I am trully humbled and touched by all your comments wishing me well. I also thank you for the hundreds of emails I've received as well!

I learned two things during my "resting period". First, even though I don't feel sick, I should listen to my body better. Warning signs were all over the place before my "crash and burn". Second, I learned that when I am sick, I didn't just ruin my own personal life, but also people around me who worked so hard for my sucess. Yes, that include all of you who were dissapointed that we postponed my exhibition in Bali. For that I am sorry and I promise I will do better. (Doc.. are you reading this? I am going to listen to you from now on :)

Going back to all of you who are kind enough to wish me well via comments and emails, I am still in awe of the kind of positive energy you guys are sending me. I believe in that. When I started this blog, I couldn't have imagined that we would turned out to become a small and caring community like this. I may not know many of you personally, but I think this episode have convinced me that all of you are my family on the net :) For that, again, I am humbled, touched and feel blessed.

So now, please wait here, come back often, because I have to make it up to each and everyone of you. I am back, alive and kicking. I am excited to enter a new phase in my career. A new phase with you next to me. Even those who call me names and hoped that God would curse me. Even them.

I am here to stay for as long as you are still reading this blog and -soon- watch TV in Indonesia ;)

Tiara

PS: Being away from this blog makes me feel a bit creative. How do you guys like the new look of the blog?

    WELCOME BACK TIARA!!!
    You sound great. Glad to hear it.

    I'm actually an old friend of an old friend of yours.
    Someone you knew from Minnesota....??
    I'd love to contact you through email if that's alright.
    Please let me know.
    I'm curious about our mutual friend, and wondering how he's doing.
    Hope you'd be ok with helping me out with that. If not, that's ok too. I would understand.

    Thanks, and take care!
    Sooooo glad that you're back!

    ps....the new colors look great!

    Welcome back! Good to have you again in here :) Nice, soothing colour on the new look.

    I heard you're moving the exhibition to Jakarta & will permanently reside back in here. Is it true? I read an article in detik a while ago.

    Anyway, I hope you're keeping your eating right and exercise enough so you stay fit. Take care now ;)

    Well, it's about damn time.

    Viva la Tiara!

    Tiara ... just wondering, do you always wear wig and hairpieces because you have thinning hair? Some of your pics did show that the wig looks too rigid. Hope you don't find this comment offensive. But sometimes your hair look too big for your face.

    I'm glad you're feeling better now. Are you going to do your photo exhibition again? Looking forward to reading the new Tiara posts.

    Tiara,
    thanx for dedicating yrself to create yr blog.
    u opened up my mind.
    i always have bad prejudice
    about models.
    if i hear or read about models, especially indonesian, it's automatically make rough pictures about anythingelse except that they are inteligent human being.
    I saluted u, Tiara.
    Keep up the good work

    It's good to have you back. You are an amazing lady. Just keep on going Tiara, many in this country love you and will back you up.

    The new look is quite okay, but i prefer the old one, since it got more character in it. Blue is a sturdy color and it builds your brand personality as a cool confident individual.

    This color is warmer and friendlier, it suggest that you open your door to friendship and reflect happiness in you. Somewhat, it might lessen the barrier for others to visit and contribute toward this blog.

    Whatever it is, it is you as a person who counts. Good luck girl!

    be Tiara!
    that's Tiara!
    God and luck will follow you always!
    regards,

    kalo mau telanjang, kumpul kebo dkk silahkan aja cuma ngga usah pake publikasi, ya...dan tanggung sendiri..
    jelas sekali ini hanya orang yg aji mumpung untuk duit dan publikasi. baik fotomodelnya, penerbitnya, pemilik,...khan lagi rame nich pornoaksi dan pornografi.
    bung, ini indonesia...negara yg punya nilai2 moral dan agama. kalo kalian ngaca sama negara barat...yg katanya demokrasi...yaaa ngga sama lllaaahhh dan sangat2 keliru...di sana nilai2 agama sdh ditinggalin, mrk cuma pake moral yg dikarang2 sendiri sesuai kebutuhan/kepentingan..malah mereka belajar nilai2 agama dari asia spt dr india...kalo mau belajar dr mereka ilmu pengetahuan boleee, d....cuma kalo moral dan agama, orang2 barat suruh "kiss my ass"....jadi jangan ditelan bulat2, ya...dan jangan telanjang bulat apalagi ditonton orang....aaaddduhhh kacciiaannn dech luuuu....

    Seni, bagaimanapun menurut filsafat estetika dari jamannya Aristotles sampai sekarang adalah education melalui keindahan. Pendidikan apa dari sebuah poto telanjang. Kita adalah korban2 dunia kapitalis. Seni telah disalah tafsirkan dinda. Kamu hanya digunakan dan dilenakan oleh uang, hati hati dinda, essensi hidup bukan pada angka angka, tapi pada jiwa yang terpusakan pada ketika kita sanggup melawan diri sendiri.
