Life Goes On, Moving On

23 08 2015

As old as time, the wall clock been in Bilik Oranje for as long as I stay here. A gift from Dewi and few other friends for the new room back then.

Today it finally stop before I replaced with new battery. I think this is the sign that life goes on. Moving forward from my comfort zone.

Will be leaving this room soon and pursue a new dream elsewhere.

A dream that we both believe will become our new fun world that full with challenge.
Wish us luck… – with Dewi, Monica, and Irma at Bilik Oranje Toean & Njonja

Pohon Cinta

Kala cinta itu datang diuji…

Getah pencobaan cintanya begitu pahit.
Dan kulit sabarnya sudah carut disana-sini.
Tumbuh dalam bayangan ego. Dan kencangnya terpaan angin cemburu.

Namun pohon cinta itu akar kasihnya semakin kuat. Batang pengertiannya semakin besar dan kokoh.

Karena dua hati ini saling berpegang kuat pada dahan harapan. Dalam rimbunnya lindungan daun asmara.

Menanti dan mendambakan sebuah cinta yg tetap semanis dan sesuci niat dalam doa mereka.
Karena dua tangan ini yg sepenuh hati menggenggam sabar didalamnya.

Coffee & Tea

2 08 2015

The Italian espresso and the English breakfast.

The both are strong kick of the day to some.

The personalities that specifically somehow can be hard to digest, probably may be misinterpreted. The both stronghold of characters and way of cultures that are different to another.

The heart and mind of both are unique.

Espresso said everything bluntly and acidic yet straight forward. English tea said it sharp and bitter yet takes a while to understand each taste symbolize for.
Italian espresso says to take the bitter satire shot straight-on like a man of « Hey dude! Here’s how I slap you to empower you! »
English breakfast says to understand the melancholy of acidity sip-by-sip like the nobility told « Pardon, can you read-between-the-line of how I require you to treat me? ».

I still learning how to take shots of my Italian espresso the way it want to teach me the hard way, while saying the English breakfast way to be understand.

In all of us, I guess there are the Italian Espresso and the English Breakfast. Love the good taste of love of both.

I miss you…

25 07 2015

There’s a hollow space in my heart when you’re not around.

There’s something missing in my day when you’re away.

I miss you…

I know you’d coming back home soon.

I know you bring my love everywhere you go, like I do too. I love you.





Ujar Aku dan Kamu Pada Malam

1 07 2015

Dan pada setiap kantuk merundung malam

Memelukmu dan kubisikan kata cintaku padamu

Kau balas berujar: « Jangan pernah kau pergi dariku… »

Ketika Tanpa Mu

25 06 2015

Screen Shot 2017-07-23 at 07.12.18Tanpa kamu, saya hilang keseimbangan.
Karena kamu, saya berpengharapan.
Karena tanpa kamu, saya bersandar pada angin.

Dengan kamu, saya tahu ada pengingat masa depan dari keluhan saya sekarang.
Karena tanpa kamu, saya entah ada di ruang waktu yang mana.

Kamu dan saya, kita saling ada untuk satu dan lainnya.
Karena aku tanpa kamu dan kamu tanpa aku, kita sama-sama kehilangan.

Rindu Dendam, [1934 – Y.E. Tatengkeng]

10 06 2015

Serasa manis sejuknya embun, selagu merdu desirnya angin.
Demikian rasa, datang semasa.

Membisik, mengajak, aku berpantun, mendayung jiwa ke tempat di ingin.

Jika kau datang sekuat raksasa, atau kau menjelma secantik juwita.
Ku sedia hati, akan berbakti.
Dalam tubuh kau berkuasa, dalam dada kau bertahta.

Rindu Dendam, 1934 – Y.E. Tatengkeng
