And, it's just nice to feel special, sometimes."

204

Saya memang tidak terlahir dan besar di kota ini.
Keturunan suku yang merupakan mayoritas di kota ini pun bukan.
Pernah menuntut ilmu di kota ini pun belum.
Namun ada begitu banyak memori yang membekas di hati #ciegitu



Sempat ada masanya serutin itu bertandang ke kota yang satu ini.
Mungkin bisa dua kali dalam sebulan.
Bukan, bukan karena punya pasangan seperti yang dipikiran kebanyakan.
Entah untuk apa. Lari dari kenyataan di ibukota, mungkin.
Yang jelas, kalau diibaratkan pasangan, kota ini tipikal yang bikin sulit move on setelah putus.

"Dan Bandung bagiku bukan cuma, urusan wilayah belaka,
lebih jauh dari itu
Melibatkan Perasaan, yang bersamaku ketika sunyi
Mungkin, Bandung diciptakan
ketika Tuhan sedang tersenyum
Mungkin"

Untuk segala kenangan yang telah dan akan tercipta, saya ingin mengucapkan:
Selamat bertambah usia, Kota Bandung!
Usia 204 tahun bukanlah usia yang muda lagi.
Semoga terus berkembang ke arah yang lebih baik.


Salam sayang,
Salah satu warga berplat B yang jatuh cinta dengan kamu

***

 

I wasn't yours and you weren't mine,
Though I've wished from time to time
We had found a common ground
Your voice was such a welcome sound

How the emptiness would fill
With the waves and with your song
People find where they belong
Or keep on

Jazz Gunung // Mt. Bromo

Last June, some of my high school friends and I attended this annual event, Jazz Gunung, which took place in Java Banana Inn near Mt. Bromo. That was my second time visited Mount Bromo, and it was still as magical as if it was my first time.

"You should have seen that sunrise with your own eyes, it brought me back to life"

It was still dawn and we could see nothing but the light from our hardtop on our way to Pananjakan. The epic part was when we were on our way back and realized that we were actually crossing a desert. There are some interesting spots beside Mt. Bromo itself, such as Pasir Berbisik and Bukit Teletubbies. And again, the scenery was so breathtaking I could say nothing but wowza.


Listening to good tunes with great companions with awesome sunset in the back of the stage in Jazz Gunung, wandered around Mt. Bromo and its surroundings, my friend and I blew our birthday candles at the crack of dawn, had Surabaya city-tour even for a short period of time; obviously a delightful weekend getaway. Let's have another trip to explore the beauty of Indonesia, shall we?

The Comeback

 

Good morning, good people.
How are you guys doing? Hope each and every one of you are doing great today.

I know it's been a while since the last time I wrote on this blog. It was on 2013. Wow.
I suddenly realized the importance of reading and writing your thoughts into a sentence, because lately I feel like my brain becomes so dull, especially when I want to express something. I sometimes feel confused picking words to say.
And because of that, I promise myself one thing in 2014: to write regularly, whether on this blog or maybe just random rambling on my notes.

So today I basically got nothing important to do and I just stumble upon here and there from one to other websites. Meanwhile, a friend of mine is having a trip to Komodo Island and sent the teaser of his trip to this one group chat, which brought the envy of me and my other friend who stuck at our office. So ironic.

Oh, and since today is Friday, I am going to Bandung this evening after the office hours with some of my friends. Earlier, we had the plan to go paragliding in Puncak, but the weather was not really good in the past few days, so the paragliding instructor told us to postpone it to next week.
Have you guys got any plan for the weekend?

So, yeah I guess I'm gonna have my lunch in a few minutes.
Have yourself a great day. Cheerio!
