The Dance – Didik Nini Thowok

On our company annual gathering last week, there was a special performance by Didik Nini Thowok. I’ve been heard and seen his performance from TV a few times since I was a small kid but that night performance was really something amazing, membuat terkesima deh. Even when I sat on the table behind, far from the stage, I’ve never seen such a person dance so smooth, the body movement swaying following the music tune. He gave the soul to the mask he was wearing when he dance. The way his body swing and move following the jazzy, pop and ethnic tune make all of us speechless (secara kita para wanita perkasa yang suka sradak sruduk ga ada anggun-anggunnya, anggota ragunan sih iya kali ya? He..he..he..). All of us give him a standing applause for his performance at the end of the show, tapi sayang banget pas ngudek ke belakang panggung dah gak keliatan lagi padahal pengen banget foto bareng Mas Didik (hikz).

 

Honto ni arigato for such a beatiful performance Mas Didik, its really inspiring.

Tebengers Conversation

Start my day to my office with so many dialogs cutting between two dominant womans from the red car. The conversation start like an interactive channel responded from the radio, celebrity gossip, politic & internal gossip.

 

Nah pagi ini ibu-ibu itu kebetulan membahas tentang rencana annual gathering, mulai dari dress code-nya – transportasi – siapa aja yang ikut – termasuk hadiah door prize. Gini ceritanya… dahulu kala… (halaaaaahhh)

 

Jeng A  : “Masa MP4 dijadiin doorprize sih?” 

Jeng B   : “Eh gitu-gitu barang mahal tuh jeng”

Jeng A  : “Iya sih, lumayan juga kalo dapet mah”

Jeng B   : “Iya lah”

Jeng A  : “Tapi teknologi kae gitu tuh yang bikin orang jadi egois”

 

*Jeng B  mangut-mangut sambil nungguin kalimat selanjutnya sementara jeng A yang merasa mendapat angin (emang layangan kaliii…) semakin menggebu-gebu ngungkapin pendapatnya.*

 

Jeng A  :  “ Lah iya, coba aja liat, anak muda jaman sekarang kalau naik bis, naek kereta, pasang MP4, colok kuping kanan kiri terus baca Koran sampe di tujuan. Kalo dulu kan gak begitu, orang-orang kalo naek kendaraan umum pada ngobrol loh”.

 

*GUBRAG deeehhh*

 

*Jeng B dah melirik-lirik ke belakang tempat gue yang lagi duduk anteng, baca Koran sambil dengerin musik dari MP3 merah kepunyaan gue (dipikirnya gue ga denger karena memang 2 kuping dicolok tapi kan volumenya bisa diatur huahaha, lagian kuping gue masih bagus, masih bisa denger jelas apa yang mereka omongin, cuman keseringan suka belaga tulalit kalau males nanggepin obrolan yang ga jelas. Udah berangkat pagi, belom sarapan masa mau adu mulut sama orang tua, cape deeehh)*

 

 

That morning conversation make me think, wether the young generation being a selfish kah? Menurut gue sih, hal itu sih tergantung didikannya dong, selain itu emotional intelegence setiap individu kan memang berbeda… masa maen claim orang egois cuman gara-gara pake MP4 sih?

 

 

Then on a way back home…

Topik siaran radio Delta sore hari dengan Mba Ida di mobil menceritakan tentang hobi shopping. Ceritanya ada seorang ibu yang siaran live yang menceritakan bahwa dia hobi shopping barang bermerk, bahkan pernah membeli suatu tas sampai menghabiskan 35 juta rupiah. Jeng A langsung berkomentar “aku benci topik ini, ibu ini gak peka banget sih? jaman dulu beli tas sampe 35 juta, ya ampuunnn….padahal masih banyak orang yang gak makan di luar sana”. Kali ini jeng B yang sepertinya sudah pening setelah bekerja seharian tidak memberikan komentar apa-apa lagi. Mungkin sudah ikutan pusing seperti saya yang sudah kehilangan cara untuk menghindarkan “siaran khusus” dari jeng A karena earphone saya rusak.

 

 

Cape deh dengernya, sudah macet harus mendengar komentar yang menurut saya gak mutu pula (maaf jeng, kenyataan memang kadang menyakitkan hahaha). Harusnya biarkan saja ibu itu beli tas, toh gak minjem uangnya jeng A ini, lagian ngapain juga pake acara marah-marah dan ngedumel di mobil (orangnya yang didumelin juga ga sadar — nah ini persis seperti apa yang saya lakukan sekarang, menulis dumelan saya hahahaha) yang ada hanya menaikan tekanan darah dan bikin kepala sakit aja kan. Jeng jeng …….

Elizabet Browning – Sonnets from the Portuguesse

Caught my eyes to her poem, dari pada stress, mending kita baca puisi cinta nih biar hati adem gitu…. sambil ngayal sedikit boleh dong gubrak !!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Barrett_Browning

Her most famous work is Sonnets from the Portuguese, a collection of love sonnets. By far the most famous poem from this collection, with one of the most famous opening lines in the English language, is number 43:

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday’s

Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.

I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;

I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use

In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose

With my lost saints!—I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life!—and, if God choose,

I shall but love thee better after death.

o0(^_^)0o Duh, jadi kangen deh….  *sok romantis mode on* sayangkuuu (huff huff) kau dimana ??? Aku padamu nyet…..

HAP HAP HAP

This morning was quite okay, I’m still alive and wake up at the right time. The water is on the right temperature, not raining and the sky was bright. Except for no coffee early at this morning since my water heater is broken and I havent found the new one.

Then my mind start getting cloudy when I get the phone call asking for one box of boots drawn out from the ware house , its not even 7 am yet and I gotta draw the box from there before lunch time. Usually I required that all requirement involving third party should be inform one day before not in such a hurry like this, ruin my schedule and other’s schedulle. Visual documentation such an e-mail play a big role in here, and what RC did, he called, damn…..

Then in the middle e-mail hecticity between me and the warehouse section, another caller asking why I turn off my internal communicator, uggghhh… of course that to stop people like you contact tante google hunny (say it aloud in my head of course) ….bla bla bla…could I get the information about the antibiotics, the acid role for the medicine efficacy bla bla bla… a.s.a.p dong soalnya buat besok. Another homeworks for today deh. Padahal leptop ade, konek iye, onde-onde kaga lah, males sih kemungkinan besar iya banget.…abis knapa kudu minta mulu sih? Cari sendiri napa ya ???  

Been discuss and complain a lot about this because this is not including in my main job, so guys if you read this (I do hope you read this), you know why I upset and close my room for the whole day then ya……and you keep doing the same thing huw… sementara gue mulu yang dikumplen babe kalian (double huw huw & manyun mode on). Terus kayak gini juga lama-lama jadi kaya simbiosis komensalisme alias rugi di aye sementara yang laen jadi tuman, kebiasaan alias ketagihan maunya ditolongin terus. Kadang rasanya diomong juga percuma sih, like talking to da wall aje… Its okay, kalo saling bantu, lah ini? gue terus yang diarepin ngebantu sementara kalian pada ngilang kalo gue kebingungan ma dokumen yang bejibun itu, boro mo minta bantuin translate dah.

Biasanya sih masih think positive aja, selama bisa dikerjain, sikat terussss…. tapi kalo gue kudu bantuin kalian mulu, gawean gue kapan beresnya dong? Trying to think positive don’t help me much today, all I want to do is eating someone… emang dah laper kaliii hihihihi….

Uuuuhhh lega, lumayan juga bisa nempelin nih uneg-uneg di sini biarpun bahasanya kacau balau acakadut….kekekeke protes??? GggggRrrrrr……. bikin blog sendiri sana ;p 

A (grumpy) Monday

Just another busy day at the office with so many thing to do in a short time. Bunch of e-mails to be replied, documents and laboratory methods to read, to be understanding and to be translated into a summary in bahasa Indonesia. Here we go again….a hectic day after 4 days off. Mana bulan depan ga ada tanggal merah satu pun argghhh……what a grumpy monday deh pokoke “sigh”.

PS. o0(>_<;)0o Don’t take it too serious, this is just another version from the I hate monday syndrome  he he he…

Suzanna Tamaro’s Book

I’ve just read the Suzanna Tamaro’s book that I bought at the Gramedia book store yesterday, I’ve just hangin around there trying to find some thick novel to spend my weekend… and suddently this book is there (its a thin book! dont know how I got hypnotized to it) hardly to remember the real title since its in Italian language bowww…
in English it was something like: Follow where your heart lead you
in Indonesian : Pergilah ke mana hati membawamu
but at the end i was glad that I found this one.

After reading the Indonesian version, I wish to find the english version……..(different language katanya different vision of life gituu… tapi kalo soal bahasa Itali bisa keriting otak gua, belom pernah ngeh seumur umur he he he….pizza, lasagna, mama mia…gitu gitu doang ngehnya nih…gawat)

Well at the end…its just a simple book with a lots of meaning, reminds us of our own life, about being honest to yourself for all the decision that you’ve made, that everything is happen for a reason, and that you always have an option in life though you might not always knows it.

Anyway different people means different point of view so….just take your time, make a cup of capuchino and relax before you open the first page…. good luck in reading guys!

Me & My Monday Morning

It’s early in the morning when my first phone’s alarm woke me up. Automatically my fingers looking for it and snap on the side button to turn it off. I open my eyes a bit., My fluorescent stars has lost it glow, its still dark and and its raining out side…. good signs to sleep again though, so I pulled up the screwed blanket, curlied under and gone to the world one more time.

It feels like I just close my eyes when the recurrent alarm rang again every ten minutes, La Camisa Negra from Juanes sound softly, then louder, louder, and getting louder. Argghhh…. Okay okay…I wake up and drag myself off the bed, turn on the lamp and the water heater, grabbed my coffee cup, pouring 2 spoon of black coffee and a half spoon of sugar inside of it. Watch the dripping of the soft rain through the window, zipping the mineral water before I go to the bathroom and get myself another arggghhh from the cold water that touched my skin. I dried and dressed myself fastly then mixing my coffee. Sniffing and inhale the smell before I took my first zip. Fully awake with the caffein flow through my body. Suddenly I jump out when I remember that there is no red car for today, it’s a bus day. Damn… those 47 ronin uuugghhh…. Stealing a glance at the clock, I send the sms to Ginting, hoping that he’ll go to the ofis this morning. If he’s not reply in 5 minutes, that means bus. I stood up from my corner, open my green bag, throwing my cell phones, the mp3 player and my ofis shoes in there, take my coffee on one long glug, grabbed the jacked and lock the door. I was stepping on my sandals when I get the reply. Hip hip huray….its definetelly ofis day for Ginting  

I start to smile and feeling so lucky becoz  I got 45 minutes extra, so I grab the ruby grapefruit juice box from the refrigerator, take another gulp from the box. Pull out my music player from my tote bag and soon Driver’s High from L’Arc-en- Ciel screaming on my ears. I open the gate out side. Hmmm…the air smell so good, the smell of the soil after the rain, humid but refreshing. With no urgency to rush, I walk slowly through the neighborhood, watching the hurried junior high school students, climbed up the stair behind the mosque to Taman Kencana. Watch the trees along the park before I wave my hand to stop one of the green angkot to take me to the plaza.  

What a one beautiful morning to start a Monday for a chronic patient with “I hate Monday” syndrome like me.

Waiting to go home …. from office

“Why does the time slip by so fast…

Why cant it just stand still…”

Many times I ask myself that question, thinking about bunch of crazy thing I havent do while the times keep running…keep chasing on my dreams one by one. I kept myself unsatisfied for more knowledge and experience, steppin onto the new exciting journey. Try to make my life worth, enhance the value of life. Want to feel humble by sleeping under the sky below the shinning stars and listening to the sound of the wave catching the sands (o0(T T)0o miss the monkey island so much, miss the fishy-smelly ocean), not only sleeping on my bed staring at the fake fluorescents stars surround the wall (hallaaahhh…..couba kalo tante kouse eike tau ya… ^ ^; )

Roald Dahl a writer of a children story imagining himself just like a candle burning on both sides. 

“The time might be short but the light is much more beautifull than the candle burn only on one side.”

Try to listen the Bryan Adams “18 till I die” or Arkarna song ya…”so little time so much to do….”

The young spirit captured on the growing figure, physically attached, you might growing old but you might not getting wiser all the time hehehe i’m the living proof of the story, because I always consider myself as a child with so many dreams to reach but so little time…. Good to know I’m not the only one who feel that way.

“Why does the time slip by so fast…

Why cant it just stand still…

For us this night will always last…

With every breath until…

And if you find you were all alone..

Remember you have wings

As long as there is air to breathe & music left unsung..

You know that in the darkest night..

The dawn has just begun…

So think of us, we’ll think of you…

Together we’ll take flight..

For we shall never say goodbye…

We only say goodnight…

(Goodnight by Air Supply, sang at the 30th Anniversary in Canada)
