Things you’d do for a bestfriend..

..saying ‘yes’ to host her wedding - standing in the stage, holding the mic all day long without preparing any notes, trying your best to remember not to speak too fast - both in Bahasa and English (that’s the toughest part ๐Ÿ˜‰) - though I couldn’t hold back the craziness inside me ๐Ÿ˜‚

Oh well, there’s always first time for everything, isn’t it?

I’m soooo happy for you and Jeff - thanks soo much for letting me be a part of your special day! โค๏ธ

”..memang mungkin ternyata, yang akan kita rindukan tentang Ramadhan bukanlah janji surga, lipat ganda pahala atau berkah berlimpahan..

..melainkan sebagian diri kita yang lain, yang terasa begitu dekat dengan Tuhan, selama Ramadhan..”

Semoga Ramadhan tak membawa pergi apa-apa yang harusnya tetap tinggal di dalam hati. Agar ikhlas, sabar dan syukur tetap terjaga hingga nanti saat Ramadhan kembali menjumpai. Insya Allah.

Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum, shiyamana wa shiyamakum. Semoga Allah menerima amal ibadah kita, mengijabah untaian doa dan pinta, dan memudahkan langkah untuk menjadi lebih baik setiap harinya.

Selamat Idul Fitri 1435 H, mohon diikhlaskan segala khilaf ๐Ÿ˜‡

Some days it storms; some others it shines.

After all, that’s how flowers grow.

Three former bosses, the current one, and a successor slash bestfriend. Today’s souvenir of so-many-years-of-service awarding night.

Life is a journey, just so you know;
It’s you who to decide where to go.

Up a mountain or down a hill;
Go dear, wherever you will.

Whether this, that or some others;
Just as long as you’re happy,
at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.

~written for a dear friend ๐Ÿ˜Š

Like what I said yesterday, a little piece of me dies inside, when someone I felt close at heart left.

Each and every time ๐Ÿ˜”

I didn’t have the chance to take a picture with you, Tiwi.. and I don’t feel the need to;

because anyway;

I’m always just a phone call (or a whatsapp) away!

This is not farewell, this is a see-you soon. All the very best for you, Tiwi! with Pratiwi Dian โ€“ View on Path.

My dad saw me reading in my room and asked, “What’s that?”

Me, “Eerr.. Nothing.”

Showed him the book, though. He looked at a glance.

"Oh. But you only read English books or at least good quality of Indonesian literature ever since your Elementary days."

He sounded as if something was wrong.

"Oh well, Dad.. At least this is in English.. I’ve spared the serious readings at work.."

Me - trying to justify myself, feeling as if I was caught doing something wrong.

All because a book titled ‘Desperate in Dubai.’

*that’s when I decided to download TwoDots - pundung dibilang bacaannya ajaib, lalu pindah main game.. malah makin gak mutu ๐Ÿ˜ โ€“ Read on Path.

Will this Two Dots be the new addiction post Candy Crush and 2048?

..while wondering, how did eleven years pass me by just like that? โ€“ Preview it on Path.

Panic at Periplus stand!

I grabbed 3 specially priced imported books totaling 78k IDR. Like super cheap already (10-20% original price), only to learn in the cashier that it’s then again discounted 50% to 39k. Ollie paid 74k IDR for the whole stack.

*now we’re back searching for more books again! โ€“ View on Path.

My goodness, this may be a sign!

I stopped telling myself that Iโ€™m lost.
Iโ€™m not.
Iโ€™m on a road with no destination, Iโ€™m just driving with hope that Iโ€™ll find a place that I like and Iโ€™ll stay there.
Iโ€™m not lost, Iโ€™m on my way.


We forget how human we are. We lose sight of what we do and who we are. Sometimes we want love and connection so badly, we shout or stomp our feet. Begging to be heard or pronouncing that we are right. Choosing the path of love doesnโ€™t boast or tantrum, it just is. Love, in itโ€™s purity, doesnโ€™t make it its business to be heard or seen, it just is. Shaking your fist or making it your purpose to be right is not walking the path of love. Love doesnโ€™t complicate, it receives and gives at all times. Recognizing when to be quiet, when to walk away, when to hold on, and when to let go. Love is in all forms; may we remember to be human in all of itโ€™s entirety walking in love. #lovealltheway
