Time-killing

I made this out of my father's jeans.


Bukan, bukan berarti Aya suka pakai jeans ijo mentereng untuk jalan-jalan, he got these jeans as a compliment years ago and never wore it even once, eh tapi nggak tau juga sih.
Trus kenapa tasnya agak miring? Karena jeans yang sudah gue potong sesuai pola masih dipotong lagi dengan sotoynya oleh si abang permak lepis sebelum akhirnya doi jait. Emang nggak ada wise words yang lebih wise dibanding "Trust no one".

Gue baru selesai baca Ksatria, Putri, dan Bintang Jatuh-nya Dee sama The Fault in Our Stars-nya John Green, dua-duanya kece sekali. Supernova jelas mind-blowing, sementara John Green nggak tanggung-tanggung untuk jadi anak perempuan 16 tahun.

And these papertoys were made of canvas-textured paper and watercolour pencils.


For mouths can tell the lies eyes cannot tell, I prefer not to draw them on.

Selamat sahur, selamat puasa dan selamat yang lainnya.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

It was around 6 pm. The sky was so bright that I got a bit curious then took a look outside. There was a rainbow upon the sky.

Here is the simplest way to know how much you love someone: you'll know you love them that much if you see something that makes you happy and they are the ones you want to share it with. That was what I did. When I saw the rainbow, I took him to the balcony. He had never seen the real rainbow before.

"Itu pelangi, Dek, kayak yang Adek suka liat di buku."
He was impressed. His big eyes grew even bigger. He was standing next to me while I was sitting near, staring at his innocent face on where the sunshine was reflected.
"Mangi," said he, tried to imitate 'pelangi' but failed.
"Iya, bagus nggak pelanginya?"
"Bagu.." still in a big amazement.
While he was mesmerized by the beauty of the nature, I was overwhelmed with gratitude for having him.

"The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky, are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do

They're really saying 'I love you'"

-What a Wonderful World

"Stay hungry!"

I just registered myself into a classical guitar class again. YAY! Luckily, the tutor is still the one who gave me the lesson when I was a 10th grader. Today I met him in his classroom around 4 pm for chatting around. It had been four years since our last meeting. And fortunately, none of his students came today, so the meeting lasted for about two hours. (Sebenernya mah itu udah kayak les geratisan, mengingat tadi gue belajar beberapa lagu baru.)

It's a great pleasure to be back in that building again. It really is. Jangankan untuk belajar lagi, sitting around the receptionist desk and enjoying the sound of some instruments vaguely in the air already turn me on. Eh?

Eniwei, ini sepotek hasil 'reunian' gue dan Kak Banu tadi. Turn down the volume first!

When I See You Smile & I Will Fly
Kalo ada genjrengan & petikan yang salah, nah, itu gue! Masalah fals mah.. ehe ehe ehe :$

And the best part is, I paid the fee with my own saving. Emang berasa langsung super-kere-banget sih, apalagi liburan masih laaama dan paaanjang, but it's totally worth it. Even it motivates me to have a good job so I can pay more and more classes or buy myself some instruments with my own income.
"Stay hungry!"
