13th Day of February

Cuaca diluar mendung. Daun-daun melambai mengikuti angin yang menyentuhnya, mereka menyapa dengan riuh rendah. Rintik hujan semakin berlomba menyentuh tanah lebih cepat.

Saya tersenyum melihat kedamaian ini, melalui jendela kamar saya.

Dengan mengucap bismillahirahmanirahim,

saya kenakan baju yang menutup aurat,

dan mengulurkan jilbab.

Kemudian dengan mantap saya melangkahkan kaki menyambut hujan, InsyaAllah.

“Hai Nabi, katakanlah kepada istri-istrimu, anak-anak perempuanmu, dan istri-istri orang Mukmin, hendaklah mereka mengulurkan jilbab mereka ke seluruh tubuh mereka. Yang demikian itu supaya mereka lebih muda untuk dikenal, karena itu mereka tidak diganggu. Dan Allah adalah Maha Pengampun lagi Maha Penyayang”

Q.S Al Ahzab : 59


No Doubt

I met a girl from Manila today. She spoke randomly to the store keeper while I was trying to choose between the red, aqua or black cardigan. She was waiting for her sister who went to the nearest atm machine.

I greeted her warmly, asked her what she was goin to say to the store keeper. Yes, I did this because I couldn’t stand not to giggle watchin her trying her best to ask how much the black legging was.

The Filipinos repeatedly and rapidly increasing her voice as she goes “How much is this??”

The Indonesian answered, “Yes, yes, itu bahannya stret,” showing her teeth to The Manilan.

Now you know why I couldnt helped it.

So, her name is Angelica. She was on a business trip, she’s like the ambassador of what-consultant. She teaches about life and -i don’t know- some kind of a consultant to make someone’s life better. I don’t know, really, I didn’t pay that much attention when she talked about her business here, hehe.

When we were about to say goodbye, she took her diary, noted down my email and our ‘anniversary’ date. While she was writing her thing, out of the blue, she told me;

“Anti, you’re doin great. If you’re sure you’re doin the right thing, don’t doubt it. Let go off your fear. We met here, is not a coincidence. Everything’s happened for a reason. And here, my friend, you taught me how to say ‘berapa’ ‘duduk’ ‘tolong’ and ‘silakan’, and I wish you will figure out the reason why God send me to you today. So, it’s very nice to see you, I hope to see you again someday, ok?!”

She shook my hand and gave me her business card and left.

..wait wait, what did she just say?!?! hahahaha..

very true indeed.. Yes Angel, God sent you to me to tell me the exact words you just said to me. Thank you.. :)

She reminds me of Mr. Carlito, dosen gue di tarki. Sama ramahnya, sama bawelnya, sama baiknya. :) and the best part is, each of them taught me something precious. :)

Mission Failed

Old necklace, repackage.

Me myself, not satisfied with the result.

I was lacked of materials.

So, here goes, you just need :

1. Rope

2. Glue (I shouldve used Glue Gun, but yeaaa, I don’t have any), in this case, I used Fox Glue

3. Beads or any other materials you’d like to be attached to your old but new necklace

4. Rarely worn necklace

5. Some creativity or ngasality (hehehe)

this is the old one look like..

and….please welcome, hasil kalung yang sudah di surgery! Maap kalo gatot..hehe

well actually you can change the chain with a red ribbon or black ribbon, but i can’t find it anywhere in my room. So i left the chain as it is.

Oh, seharusnya yang ada dibayangan gue, ini bukan pake beads, tapi pake kain tebel (bukan flanel) gue ga tau apa nama kainnya, and after the fabric is attached to the rope-covered ring, I can spray some ‘frozen color’ to it. So they will have the same color but at least it wont look this CHILDISH.

Oh Gosh. Disaster.


1st February Mission report : FAILED.

Alright, gona make something a little less disasterous next time.

’till the end..

No, it’s not because it’s February.

No, it’s not because of Oscar.

No, it’s not because of the heavy rain that keeps me mellow these days.

It’s just because, this song is very sweet and sad at the same time.

I like the movie.

I practiced to play this song, but there’s no way i’m gonna upload my video playin the song with my guitar, bisa-bisa ngabur ke kamar mandi gara-gara mules denger gue nyanyi. :))

I love you till the end..
