Hey, I Am Turning 30!

I always thought that wherever I go, August will be the hottest month of the year. Because it is summer for most people. August is my favourite but I always hated it for being the hottest month. But hey, if I move my ass to Australia, I'll be having August in winter!  I forgot that Australia is different. Although it is considered winter, the weather seems good between 15-22 degrees. It's the best temperature ever. August is my favourite month of the year.  Anyway, I am turning 30 today. A new milestone. I am feeling anxious lately. Some people said, "You're a young adult in your 20s but you became an adult when you turn 30" yea that definitely didn't help my anxiety.  When my mum was 30, I was already 10. So yes I had this in my mind, "30 is serious age, by that time I am probably married, have one of two toddlers." Everything was planned traditionally just like how I saw my mum. Graduate, job, married, having kids, living like a normal family. Turn

[How we met] Me and Maya



She is one of my best. Call her Maya. Teman seperjuangan lah istilahnya ya, dari jaman SMP, SMA, Kuliah bahkan setelah lulus. We met when we were 14. Sorry, I mean I was 14 and she was 15 (she will get mad if I mention about the age difference hahah). Age is just a number anyway. 

First time I knew her when we were classmate in 8th grade of middle high school. At that time, that was the best class. Yea I can tell I was smart (even now hahaha), and she does. So we were a classmate since then. Almost everyone knows her since she is really good at English. Always ‘on duty’ for English debate or something like that. But ok, first impression wasn’t good for both of us. Really. 

My first impression when I saw her like ‘hmm, can you shut up?? You are so noisy’. But her for me ‘hmm she is the daughter of teacher here, she must be so arrogant. Ihh I don’t want to make a friend with her’. Nah not so good for both of us. Both of us never want to be a friend each other. Till something happen. I will write in Indonesian so I can get the feeling hahaha

Suatu ketika ada PR matematika kelas 2 SMP. Kebetulan mata pelajaran itu ada di jam setelah istirahat. Jadi masih ada waktu sebelum istirahat untuk mengerjakannya. Kebetulan lagi, dia belum mengerjakan dan saya sudah mengerjakan. Banyak yang nyontek PR saya, terus dia nanya ke saya, pengen nyontek juga, ehhh saya bentak-bentak dia. Akhirnya dia juga ngerasa marah dong. Ngerasa kayak nggak dihargai gitu, dan saya juga waktu itu bad mood banget, eh ditanyain begituan sama dia. Yawes kita nggak ngobrol banget dan nggak saling tegur sapa akrab. Sampai ketika suatu saat kenaikan kelas 3, eh kita sekelas lagi. 

Feels like ‘ehh why we are in same class again now?’. But yeah, seems that destiny of us is started. That time, we both already forget about the things happen in last year, but still we can’t be a friend yet. I sat next to other friend and she was my classmate since 7th grade. So we were 3 years in the same classroom in middle high, call her Novia but I call her Dora (she is one of my best friend as well, will write about her next time). I choose to sit next to her since I know her better than knowing Maya. She sat down next to other person but they didn’t have a good conversation since that time, her friends only talk about having boyfriend while she is not really into it. So she came to my group, me and Dora. Actually we are 5. Me, Maya, Novia, Radin, Dina. This friendship is began when we were 14.

Time runs so fast. We were preparing for studying in university. Novia choose to be a midwife, while Radin choose to study English, Dina choose to study psychology, but Radin and Dina wasn’t so sure that they will be accepted in good university in Malang. The same university that we choose. Maya actually doesn’t really sure if she can study at university but I don’t know why, that time I told her  “hey, don’t worry, we will be accepted in same university, we will live in same house in Malang. Trust me. Just believe we can make it”. And finally we saw the announcement and we both got accepted in same university. Me studying mathematics and her studying Deutch.

That is why I believe why we have to be so optimist, positive and really sure that we can make something happen. Dan terkadang omongan yang asal ceplas ceplos itu kejadian beneran lho.

Finally, for another years we were living in same roof, in Malang. Yeah, know each other for years already and then for another years when we were studying at same university. It just like a miracle. Where I could find someone (and some people actually), who doesn’t have a blood ties but feels like family more.
No no, our relationship is not as smooth as we can imagine. I mean, even we are very close to each other, but we are normal people who have problems as well. We were mad to each other, were crazy to same thing together, were doing every things together, were having bad and good times together, we all feel it. Smile, laugh, confuse, crazy, tears, we all feel it. Yes yes we feel it together. It doesn’t like ‘oh you both so close to each other, but why you both feel angry to each other? You have to be nice to each other’. It is life and we live our life. We don’t have drama in life (she likes to dramatize it sometimes, but that’s her and that’s the reason why she have me hahaha).

I didn’t have boyfriend when I live in Malang. Had it when I was studying at university but then broke up and wasn’t in a relationship for years. So we always be together all the time. At university, when we were hang out, even when we are teaching together in same institute. Well…doesn’t mean I don’t have any other friends. We both have, and we know almost all our friends, but yes I am with her all the time till our friends and colleagues asked “ARE YOU BOTH LESBIAN????? I NEVER SEE YOU HAVE BOYFRIEND AT ALL”. Oh no!!!! I don’t have boyfriend but doesn’t mean I am lesbian. Even if I am lesbian, I will chose someone better than her hahahah!!

We both enjoy the time together. Also become crazy together, learn everything together, we have the same thoughts together till it’s like when we saw something, we knew what’s on our mind. It must be the same things on mind. I don’t know why and how, but it like the ties getting deeper, since I consider her like my own sister (OLDER SISTER). She is wise person (but sometimes I am wiser hahah). I know her well and so does her, knows me well. Yes like a family.

We had quarrels a lot but we also have a good and crazy time together, even more often. We all just a human being. Always try to be nice and respect to each other. And of course, love to each other as a best friend.

You know how I always make you upset, make you questioning things, but I never have any intention to do that.

I am sorry for always make you worry, and thank you for always loving me as your family.

Dedicated to my beloved friend, Maya.

Ujian hari senin

Kejadian ini terjadi tepat senin minggu lalu. Baru kali itu aku merasa 'WOW.. ini senin yeay'. Karena biasanya 'haduhh udah senen lagi'. Kebayang kan kalo seneng begitu dihari senen menyambut pagi dan hari itu rasanya langka banget. Otomatis pengennya hari itu berlangsung indah. Jam setengah 9 pagi, seperti biasa ke pantry ambil minum bareng sama temen sebangku. Dia bikin teh, aku nyuci botol sekalian ngisi dong. Seperti biasa juga, kadang aku males sih nyuci botol dengan ritual lengkapnya, akhirnya cuman bilas pake air panas. Ya mungkin nggak sampe 50 ml juga. Dikit banget deh. Temen juga selalu bersihin gitu gelasnya pake air panas. Pic source is here Eh lakok lakok... si bapak pantry yang serem itu tiba-tiba bilang 'Gak bisa ya gak nyuci botol pake air panas? Tiap sore itu banyak komplain gara-gara airnya abis'. Yakaliii air abis tinggal isi aja, ibu yang dulu aja nggak pernah ada komplain. Ya aku bilang lah ini cuman dikit, lagian yang ngelakuin ini

Jumat ceria

Hari ini memang bukan hari jumat, tapi cuman mau bilang aja sih kalo hari yang paling aku tunggu-tunggu itu hari jumat. Why?   Karena jumat itu selalu ceria, kalopun ada meeting besar pasti di hari jumat dan banyak cemilan, orang-orang pada berangkat sholat jumat, yang nasrani juga mengikuti misa di kantor, bisa pake baju bebas dan bebas berekspresi sepuas-puasnya, dan..... bisa video call sepuasnyaaaaaa kapanpun karena dia libur kerja 😍😍 gambarnya lucu 😁  taken from internet

[Piknik] Menjejakkan kaki di Bromo

Puluhan tahun hidup sebagai warga Jawa Timur, namun baru pertama kali menjejakkan kaki di Gunung Bromo. Bertepatan dengan upacara Kasada yang terjadi satu tahun sekali dan bertepatan dengan bulan purnama (semoga nggak salah kasih info), sekitar akhir bulan Juli tahun 2015.  Gunung Bromo merupakan gunung yang bertetangga dengan gunung Semeru. Jika kita pergi kesana, maka akan melihat banyak tulisan BTS -yang saya kira Behind The Scene-, ternyata adalah Bromo Tengger Semeru. Tidak hanya melihat gunung Bromo seorang, disana kita akan disajikan jejeran gunung-gunung kecil disana. Ok.. first of all mari dimulai dari berangkat ke Bromo. Menuju Bromo bisa menyetir motor sendiri, bisa juga menyewa tour dari titik keberangkatan (seperti yang saya lakukan), bisa menggunakan ojek seharga 100ribu per ojek sepuasnya, bisa menyewa jeep dari titik mula menuju Bromo (dengar-dengar sih harganya 600ribu/jeep, satu jeep bisa untuk 4-6 orang tergantung ukuran badan orangnya heheh). Jeep yang saya
