Hanya Ingin Kau Tahu

“Mau kamu apa?”
Nana menatap mata lelaki di depannya dengan tajam.

“Aku…”

“Sudah! Aku muak!”

“Tapi aku cinta…”

“Persetan dengan kamu dan cinta. Bagiku kalian sudah mati!”

“Nana, mengertilah…”

“Stop! Kamu bukanlah siapa-siapa aku lagi!”
Nana berlari menjauh, membiarkan air matanya jatuh menjadi jejak-jejak penghubung masa lalu.

‘Seandainya kamu dulu tak meninggalkan kami, tentu kita tak akan bertemu di tempat ini.’

Nana melangkahkan kakinya dengan gontai menjauhi lokalisasi. Ia hanya ingin lelaki itu tahu, bahwa sejak hari itu tak pantas lagi sang lelaki yang tengah menatap punggungnya menjauh itu dipanggil Papa.

Kota Tempat Kisahku Bermula

Bersamaan dengan mekarnya kelopak Rafflesia yang entah ke berapa?
Aku menangis terisak di dekapan ibu dan ayah
Sembari memuja Tuhan yang Maha Esa

Menghirup udara di luar rahim ibunda
Menemui matahari untuk pertama kalinya

Tumbuhlah gadis kecil pemalu
Berambut panjang diekor kuda
Tertatih-tatih didera nasib
Terbata-bata mengeja kata

Gadis manis teraneh ujar teman-temannya
Gadis kecil yang terlalu takut untuk melangkah apalagi berlari mengejar mimpinya

Hingga beranjak dewasa
Jiwa muda bergejolak
Membantah kata orangtua
Bertindak angkuh semaunya
“Aku bukan hidup di penjara! Aku manusia merdeka!” Teriaknya pekakkan telinga

Bak kisah Siti Nurbaya
Tetapi jodoh katanya bukanlah di tangan orangtua
Siti Nurbaya kini telah berubah

Berlarilah sang gadis bercumbu dengan si pemuda
Mengatasnamakan cinta dan kata merdeka
Ingin menikah tetapi malah didera
Sungguh kasihan wahai engkau gadis belia

Ingatlah Tuhan di kala bahagia dan susah
DinikahkanNya dua insan saling cinta
Secara sederhana di negeri langit
Tanpa takut kemiskinan menghimpit

Bahagialah kami di sini
Dijamin Tuhan yang memiliki segala
DicintaiNya tanpa melihat siapa

Rumah Kita

Build a home with you is a heaven
Being with you is a miracle
Spend my life with you is a present
Having a baby is awesome

There are no words that could describe how I feel
Because we explain it by kissing and hugging

Then, God complete us with His love
The greatest love we had
the best story He made

Part 1 #untukmu

Jason Mraz: I Won’t Give Up

When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well, there’s so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

Well, I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

And when you’re needing your space
To do some navigating
I’ll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

‘Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We’ve got a lot to learn
God knows we’re worth it
No, I won’t give up

I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not, and who I am

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up, still looking up.

Well, I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

English Class

“Okay, you can make your own shopping list for mother’s day celebration now!” Asked Mrs. Jane.
The students start to write, although some of them look confused.
“Mrs! I can write anything, right?” Asked Billy, suddenly.
“Sure. Anything you want to buy for your mother”
“How about Softex?”
“Huh? Oh, Billy! Come on… You can choose another precious gift”
“Well, a car?”
“That’s perfect!”
Billy then continue his shopping list.
“Mam! I’ve finished!” Tiara yelled.
“Let me check it” answer Mrs. Jane.
Tiara gives her book.
“Good. Wait for your friends” Mrs. Jane returns Tiara’s book.
Almost half of the class finished.
Don, the laziest student start to rush.
“How many thing you have wrote?” “Ten”
“Twelve”
“I’m twenty!”
Don takes Clara’s. He copies some of things on her shopping list. Then he takes Billy’s, Karen’s, Mike’s…
“Yes! I got thirty!” He screamed.
“Mrs! Don is cheating!” Told Tiara.
Mrs. Jane only smile.
Then, she writes some questions on the white board and asks the class to answer them. Every student is busying answer the question, except Don. He’s just waiting for the others then copying their answers.
“Time’s up. Harry, please help me collect the books!”
Harry, the chairman does the order quickly.

Two days later, on the next english lesson. Mrs. Jane bring a box to the class.
The students feel curious.
“What is that?”
“A gift for me?”
“Open it, Mam!”
Mrs. Jane smiled.
“Keep calm, class!”
“I have two presents in this box and I’ll give them to Don and Clara! Give applause!”
Both of them accept the gift happily.
“But, Mrs! Don cheated!” Billy protested. Mrs. Jane only smile at him. Then, she explain “I only score the answers of those five questions not the items in your shopping list. Why?”
“Because by checking the answers you will know either the students cheated or not.” Clara replied.
“That’s true! So the gifts actually for the best and the worst”

Don looks so sad. He got two in english assignment.
“Now, it’s time to discuss the best answer class! Look at your own shopping list.”
Every student pay attention to their book.

“Okay, the first question is ‘What kind of text is it?”
“Shopping list!” The students answered together.
“Correct!”

“Number two, ‘What is the most expensive thing in your shopping list?’ Err… What is your answer Billy?”
“An airplane, Mam!” Billy replied.
“Wow! Fantastic! How about you Nana?”
“The most expensive thing is a gold necklace”
“Very nice!”
“Mam, mam!” Koko raise his hand.
Mrs. Jane let him to answer.
“I will give my mom a house with a pool and a garden inside.”
“Marvelous!”

The third, fourth and last question had been already answered. Don knew now, why Mrs. Jane gave him bad score.
“I’m sorry for being cheated, Mam. I promise you, I won’t do that again”
“I’m happy finally you realize that cheating is not good for you and also for the others” Mrs. Jane look at the students.
“So, this is a gift for you, I hope you will study harder, dear”
Don receive then open it.
“A pocket dictionary! Wow! Thanks Mam!” Don looks so happy. Start from now he will do the task and homework by himself.

Senja di Pantai Panjang Bengkulu

Sedikit berbagi hasil jalan-jalan hari ini setelah shopping-shopping sama adek-adek, lanjut liat sunset (niatnya) tapi ternyata ga terlalu jelas. Tapi sore yang cukup indah untuk dinikmati kan? 😀
Ini foto dari salah satu objek wisata di Kota Bengkulu: Pantai Panjang (Long Beach)
Beneran panjang sih kalau jalan kaki di sepanjang pinggiran pantai lumayan buat kaki lemes 😛
Pasirnya putih, sepanjang pantai ditumbuhi pohon-pohon cemara.
Kalau jalan-jalan terus lapar, ga perlu khawatir di pinggiran pantai banyak kios-kios pedagang makanan, bahkan penjual keliling. Mulai dari makanan ringan sampai makanan berat atau hasil laut itu sendiri. Kepiting, lobster, udang goreng… Yummy (˘ڡ˘)
Yang namanya ke pantai sih di mana-mana asiknya pagi atau sore hari. Soalnya bisa jogging atau sepedaan, banana boat juga ada loh di sini, sekali waktu ada juga slalom contest. Pasalnya di sini ada yang namanya sport center, jadi ada gedung khususnya juga buat main bulu tangkis, tennis, futsal atau go kart. Asik kan?
Buat yang malas keringatan, bisa olahraga mata alias ngadem di Mall, shopping! (hihihihi :P)
Masalah penginapan atau hotel, banyak kok tinggal pilih mau kelas apa, mulai dari hanya menginap atau mau clubbing sekalian. Sesuaikan dengan kebutuhan dan keuangan.
Jeleknya sih yang paling parah satu: SAMPAH! Sedikit berserakan, padahal beberapa gerakan pemuda atau perkantoran sudah mulai melakukan gerakan bersih-bersih pantai. Tapi… Ya gitulah, susah membiasakan membuang sampah pada tempatnya, apalagi kalau susah ditemukan di sepanjang pantai.
Gitu sih sedikit cerita, kalau ke Bengkulu jangan lupa kunjungi Pantai Panjang ini. Boleh hubungi saya kalau mau teman jalan 8-D
Masih ada objek wisata lainnya seperti Benteng Marlborough, Danau Dendam Tak Sudah, Bunga Raflesia, Rumah Bung Karno, dan lain-lain.
So, visit Bengkulu- visit Indonesia

Aku Diam-Diam Suka…

“Aku diam-diam suka…
Kucoba mendekati…”

Ah! Aku tak punya cukup keberanian. Padahal ia sudah sangat dekat dengan ayah, ibu, juga kak Rino. Bisa apa aku dengan ketakberdayaan ini?

Wujud mungilnya, harum tubuhnya…

Aku bahkan tergila-gila sebelum menyentuhnya.

“Ayo, makan malam sudah siap” ajak ibu dari ruang makan

kuletakkan smart phone di atas meja. Sementara ayah melipat koran pagi yang beritanya hampir basi.

“Kak, Rino!” Teriakku.
“Iya, sebentar. Lagi teleponan sama Dara.” Jawabnya tak kalah kencang.

Ayah memimpin doa. Kami makan dengan lahapnya. Nikmat Tuhanmu yang mana yang mampu kau dustakan?

Makan malam selesai. Masih ada beberapa lebih makanan di atas meja. Kucuci semua gelas, sendok dan piring. Beres!

Kulirik lagi di atas meja.
Hap!
Mulutku mengunyah perlahan, lidahku merasakan lezatnya.
Enak sekali! Rasanya air mataku mau menetes. Terharu dibuatnya. Menyesal selama ini terlalu gengsi.

“Ehm…”

Suara Kak Rino!

“Ciyeee… Yang diam-diam makan petai… Suka ya?”
