and the July ends...

"By al-'Ashr. Verify! Man is in loss. Except those who believe (in Allah) and do righteous deeds. And recommend to the truth, and recommend to the patience." (Al-'Ashr: 1-3)
So, another month has passed by and soon Ramadhan will be leaving us too...
Let's ask ourselves, "What have I done so far?"

Flower of the Day: What's Its Name?

Photos time!
Pinkish Purple
These are the flowers of the day. I was caught by their beauty when I arrived home this afternoon. The flowers have always been there but I've never paid a close attention to them. However, I know by now that these flowers will present full blossom on sunny days when it's only little rain in weeks. 
(Summertime, maybe? :P)

Beautiful, isn't it?
Can anyone tell me what the name is? Either English or Indonesian is fine. You can also tell me what it's called in your language because I only know the name in my native language! LOL

Well, scroll down for the pic spam! :)

Future Planning


Akhir-akhir ini -kira-kira sejak beberapa bulan yang lalu- ada suatu hal yang mulai mengganggu pikiran saya. Saya mulai memikirkan 'masa depan'. Iya, apa yang akan saya lakukan bulan depan, tahun depan, dan seterusnya. Aneh kah?

Pertanyaannya, berapakah usia saya sekarang? Insya Allah September nanti hitungan kehidupan saya akan menggenapi angka 23. Kombinasi angka yang -mungkin- tidak lagi dianggap remaja -apalagi anak-anak. Meskipun begitu, saya tidak memiliki bayangan akan berada di mana saya esok hari. Alasannya jelas. Saya tidak punya rencana. Saya belum punya target. Saya belum tahu apa yang akan ataupun ingin saya lakukan. Parah, ya?

Mari berbagi mengenai hari
bersama cerahnya sinar mentari
dan tawa langit yang terhias pelangi
selalu ikuti suara hati

Mari berbagi risalah masa
semua cerita yang tertera
selaksa rasa yang mungkin ada
pernah tersimpan di relung jiwa

Namun inginku,
mari berbagi tentang waktu
pada torehan jejak yang kau padu,
adakah rindumu untukku?

Tonight I wanna cry...

Do you know how it feels to wait for something that probably won't come?
I do.
Do you realize how tiring it can be, when you have to wait over and over?
I do.
Do you have any idea how painful your heart can be, when something you really wish just cannot come true?
I do.
Do you understand how it feels when you want to cry, but you cannot even shed a tear?
I do.

But then, do you have any suggestion of what I should do with the pain in my heart?

The Ramadhan Story (Day 11): Buka Puasa Bareng A Plus

Berikut kegiatan saya hari ini:

Seperti biasa, jadwal saya hari ini adalah ngajar jam 10.15 pagi. Sejak jam delapan saya sudah siap-siap: beresin tempat tidur, beresin isi tas, beresin... apa lagi ya? Berhubung malam ini saya akan menginap -yang tadi pagi masih belum tau di mana- jadi kamarnya harus di-stel 'serapi' mungkin, meskipun nanti diacak-acak lagi sama lil sis and lil bro.

カイラ の お好み焼き

Trying to cook okonomiyaki for the second time and alhamdulillah, it turned out quite well ^^

Makanan khas Jepang ini tidak memerlukan banyak bahan dan membuatnya juga tidak sulit. Saya tadi hanya pakai satu butir telur, sedikit kecap manis dan kecap asin sebagai bumbu, tepung beras, dan segenggam irisan kol.

The Ramadhan Story (Day 5): #FLPMengguncangRamadhan

So, it is a must do project and I still get no idea what to write. I have intended to publish The Ramadhan Story series since the first day but for some reasons, I just haven’t. That’s it, I’ll just give it another try. Bismillah…

Unusual Question

“EEEH???” Yuki jolted in surprise when she fully understood the short message shown in her hand phone. She then covered her mouth with her palm, realizing she had just shouted out loud. ‘Geez, Shota, you just give me a heart attack.’
She immediately dialed the number, “I need to talk to you right now,” without waiting for the reply she ended the call. Leaving someone there no choice but to obey her saying.
“Why all of a sudden?” the girl questioned as a guy appeared before her eyes. Not even giving him a proper welcome.
Shota found himself a nice seat before replying. “I’ve known you for such a long time. So it’s not sudden,” he said calmly.

The Ramadhan Story

First tarawih of the year. Drizzling. Cool. Many people come to the mosque.
However as usual, kids were being noisy and there were some blanks in the shaff. Not much has changed.
That's it.

"LA TAHZAN" a movie by Danial Rifki (August 2013)

Will be released on August 2, 2013
This morning I happened to glimpse a trailer of Indonesian movie advertised on a private TV channel. I usually don't have much to say about Indonesian movie but this one caught my attention. It's like I saw something familiar. I sat down in front of TV and watched the trailer thoroughly and I was excited. No other reason but due to the Japanese thing in it.

Title: La Tahzan (Jangan Bersedih)
Director: Danial Rifki
Casts: Atiqah Hasiholan, Joe Taslim, Ario Bayu
Genre: Drama
This is a (love?) triangle story between the three main casts. Viona (Atiqah) is an Indonesian student and part-time worker in Osaka. One day she accidentally met Yamada (Joe, seriously, I thought he was Richie Ren at first!), a Japanese-Indonesian freelance photographer and they soon became close. Yamada had a heart for Viona and proposed to her, even said he would convert into Islam, Viona's religion.

It's true I'm a bit disappointed but that just can't be helped, right?
This is the path I've chosen.
It's not like I haven't known from the start that things like this are gonna happen.
Well then, nothing to worry about.
Just live on!

Hey! Say! BEST - SCRAMBLE (Romaji/English Translation)

BEST's latest song, yay! Another cool song with cool lyric written by Yabu Kouta and of course, another "ス" (su) song XD. Hopefully they will release a "ス" album one day... For all their recorded songs' title begin with that letter...

Ah, here is the romaji and English trans... credit goes to kodochalover@lj for kindly allowing me to re-post her translation^^.


Tachidomaru boku wo azawarau you ni susumu
Toki no naka ni anata wo sagasu no
Tsunaida hazu no chiisana sono tenohira no kanshoku wa
Ito ga hotsurete iku you ni nagareta

Mada honnori to netsu wo motsu sono koukei ijiwarude yasashii egao
Senobi shi sugi ne to boku ni sasayaki nagara
Itsumo jibun de kakato wo ageta ne

Saenai hyoujou no uchigawa wo
Ano hi shitteita noni
Kotoba ni suru no ga kowakute
Kimochi ni kagi wo kaketa
