Reasons to be missed

Rrrrrttt. Rrrrrttt. Rrrrrttt.

Ponselku bergetar, membuyarkan lamunanku. Sudah lama rasanya aku tak melamun, kemudian secara tak sengaja sebuah lagu favoritku saat dulu terputar di pesawat radio. Ku tengok ponsel, sebuah panggilan yang sebenarnya tak begitu kuharapkan. Betapa dua manusia bisa saling terhubung, Semesta. Aku takjub. Bagaimana bisa Dia mengatur semua ini begitu saja dengan alasan “kebetulan”.

“Halo, bisa bicara dengan Cinta.” Sebuah suara yang amat ku kenal.
“Pret!” Jawabku singkat yang langsung disambut suara tawa yang dulu pernah amat kusuka. Biasanya kucubit pipinya kalau sudah begitu. Dulu.

Pembicaraan itu tipikal basa-basi yang cukup membuatku tak peduli akan yang sebenarnya kami bicarakan. Yang kuingat hanya kalimat yang aku lontarkan tanpa pikir panjang, “Jangan buat gue jatuh cinta sama lo lagi. Please.”

Jeda sejenak, dan seingatku aku mulai tidak suka pembicaraan yang mulai serius itu. 

Forgetting all the hurt inside
You’ve learned to hide so well

Si Gadis

Sore itu, di ujung trotoar, seorang lelaki duduk di atas motornya sambil memainkan telepon genggam keluaran Denmark yang sudah terlalu uzur. Bermain “Snakes” sepertinya. Entah sudah berapa level yang telah ia taklukan sembari menunggu.
Dari ujung trotoar satunya, seorang gadis dengan setelan kaos dan jeans, lengkap dengan jaket hijau lumut dan tas kanvas datang berjalan ke arah si Lelaki. Tepat di hadapan si Lelaki, si Gadis memasang senyum lebar, menutupi rasa bersalah. Mereka memutuskan untuk segera beranjak. Peluit kereta api dan besi yang beradu menjadi iringan kepergian mereka.

Tak banyak yang mereka bicarakan selama perjalanan sore itu. Cuaca dan kabar sudah dari tadi mereka tamatkan. Si Gadis memilih larut dalam semburat senja. “Terlalu sunyi, aku tidak suka,” pikir si Gadis, “Tapi untuk saat ini, biarlah sunyi.”

Do you feel the way I do? Right now

Tak lama, sebuah kafe kecil menjadi persinggahan mereka. Wangi kayu dinding kafe dan setangkup roti bakar terlalu menggugah untuk diabaikan lama-lama di antara senandung lagu hujan. Tapi mereka tetap harus bicara, apapun kecuali tentang kabar dan cuaca. Mereka mulai tergelak tawa pada hal-hal yang entah apa. Si Gadis tak suka sunyi, sunyi hanya boleh untuk sendiri. Apapun, mereka harus tetap bicara, termasuk kisah-kisah mereka.

Risik

Aku suka berisik ini.
Semilir angin yang terkadang melaju,
derik jangkrik yang saling beradu,
dan gemericik air pancuran
yang walaupun palsu,
cukup meramaikan malamku,
dan mendamaikannya di satu waktu.

Ada engkau di ujung satunya.
Setidaknya aku tahu itu engkau di sana,
tergelak pada laku bodohmu sendiri,
yang menjadikan hatiku ramai,
dan risik itu yang menjadikannya damai.

NOT my wedding :)

I find a post by 9gag said that, "You know you're old when you have more wedding invitation than a birthday party." and yeah, I know I'm old. It's my lifetime best friend's wedding!
It's a very late post btw, but who cares. It's Anda's wedding. \(^o^)/

beautiful isn't it?

I was very surprised when she mentioned about her boyfriend, which is also my high school and college friend, coming to her house, along with his parents. I thought there would be some engagement thing first, since Anda herself hadn't finish her medical school yet. But her parents said there's no need such engagement, "If you two really want to get marry, just marry then," that's what they said. Furthermore, Anda said that she would have her Co-Ass soon, so I really guessed that it would be the next year thing. I was totally wrong!!! She said that they would hold their wedding before her co-ass in September, which means it's in this year. *shock* While there's Ramadhan month in mid-July, and she said that the wedding should be held before Ramadhan. *double shock*
Just to make it clear, that conversation of us was in early April. So I was not exaggerating things when she said all of those things. She just had less than 3 months preparation. For a wedding!! I felt sorry I couldn't be much help for the preparation, I was still in Bandung at that time. But I helped as much as I could do, gave her some suggestions here and there when she needed. She told me about her wedding theme that mostly about fairy tale so she made it a garden party. Not a total garden party as you usually saw in movies, but it's still beautiful. I was asked to make an invitation wording for her. It's kinda hard to match the theme, but thankfully she satisfied with my works. :D

My dream to be Korea trip

Okay, first, I wanna give you an alert. This post is actually a post I made to win a gift. I don't know since when I became such a bounty hunter. hahaha. Well, who's on earth that didn't even want free stuffs? :p
Moreover, it's a Korea trip gift for 4 days and 3 night by Korean Tour Organization (KTO) together with Korean Air!! How tempting is that?? Well, actually, no matter where the trip is, I think I'll still take part of it. And it's Korea!! A country that (so far) just can be seen (by me) in its dramas, or movies, or MVs, or even just a picture. Oh, btw, it's called Asian On Air Program. :)


It's dreaming tiiiiiimeeee..... \(^o^)/
Why I said "dreaming time"? Because it's pretty clear that I am still here, typing this post, wondering what will I do IF I can be one of those lucky bloggers. Now, if you may, I would present you: things I want TO DO, if I get to visit Korea. Drumroll please... :D

1. EAT
Okay, if you think I'm kidding by stating that, no-no, you're wrong. I'm very serious about it. Honestly, I think the next Korean wave to spread all over the world after K-Drama and K-Pop is K-Cuisine. I want to eat as many Korean food as I can try. Call me a pig whatsoever, but. Oh, wait, I don't wanna be called as pig. Okay, how about passionately-food-loving-girl? Yeah, that's better.
Call me a passionately-food-loving-girl whatsoever, but in fact, Korean foods are all tempting! Bibimbap (비빔밥), ttokpokki (떡볶이), samgyetang (삼계탕), jajangmyun (짜장면), kimbab (김밥), or tofu stew (순두부찌개), you name it. Even my friends were all like drooling over a variety show just because there's some eating scenes, which I'm pretty sure, it's involving what so called food. They even loved my home made kimbab! :D
