Sayang Bumi Sayang Anak

Sharjah - UAE Gw suka banget belanja online. Ya karena praktis aja. Tentu saja gw juga suka banget belanja langsung on the spot  kalau lagi stress dan lagi ada waktu buat muter-muter. Tapi... ternyata gw jadi kesel tiap abis belanja online, gw harus berurusan dengan plastik-plastik bekas belanja.  "Dih plastik lagi." Emang, beberapa barang tentu saja perlu plastik/ bubble wrap  ekstra. Tapi banyak dari belanjaan gw yang nggak perlu itu semua. Tebel banget. Gw paham juga beberapa toko lebih milih dibungkus plastik tebel biar tokonya nggak dikomplain. Tapi bagi gw, udah kebangetan.  Gw tau kita nggak bisa sepenuhnya nggak pakai plastik. Kita masih akan pakai plastik. Konsekuensinya, ya kita harus tau sampah plastik ini harus diolah gimana biar nggak kebuang sia-sia. Mana nggak bisa terurai ratusan tahun lagi.  Masalahnya, plastik ini seringkali nggak bisa dipake lagi karena selotip yang muter. Susah lah di- breakdown lagi biar bisa dipakai ulang. Akhirnya, tentu saja dibuang pe

Fully Booked!

  

Well actually this is kinda funny when I tried to remember again about it.

A day after I got married (22 April), we plan to go to Jogja. We planned to see HJ's friend, Flavio and his gf in Jogja. Flavio is based in Jakarta since 2017. Well he will leave soon again to another country, so we use this chance to see each other in Jogja. This is my first time to see him and his gf. His gf is pregnant, 7 months, such a beautiful thing on her belly. Flavio said to my husband, 'you see the belly bump? amazing right?'. akupun merasa, 'wow, hemm manisnya'.

So... we were all talking about going there by train but all trains from Jakarta to Jogja were fully booked. So does from Surabaya. So we decided to fly. I've check train from Jogja to Surabaya were available so we went back to Surabaya by train. We were all forgot that this is long weekend. 24 April is a holiday here. We were all focused on how to get there and how to go back, but didn't pay attention on 'where will we stay'.

...my husband distract me by asking me to make him a cup of ice coffee in the middle of writing...😑

21 April night, my husband thought that we can just book a hotel in Inna Garuda on last minute, so does Flavio. But then when we checked all the hotels around Jogja, they are all fully booked. We called about 10-15 hotels and they were all told us the same 'Ohh I am sorry, fully booked'. Also in Manohara hotel, a hotel in Borobudur complex that become our first destination. We're all like 'hell! we got the flight to go there, also the train back to Surabaya, but we don't know where to stay while we are there'. Kudu ngguyu tapi yo kudu nangis pisan kok geblek tenan ora mikir turu e nang endi

'Ok we have to stay outside Jogja I think, maybe we can stay in Solo or Semarang or somewhere'

Then I found a homestay next to Borobudur, in the midnight after we called 10-15 hotels. We said yes, we book it! We didnt even care about how it looks, how it is, and this and that, what we care only 'we have to find a place to sleep'. Thats all.

22 April we flew to Jogja from Surabaya around 4, and they flew from Jakarta around 4 I guess. When they came to airport, going for check in, dengan manisnya mbak petugas bilang 'Oh... your flight was yesterday'. Flavio gf book wrong date for the flight. So they have to wait and if they are lucky they can get the ticket. They were lucky, they got ticket to fly to Jogja and finally we met in Jogja!

starving! setelah drama seharian, ditambah macet dari bandara ke Magelang, ditambah bumil yang tiap 20 menit ngeluh pipis


Kita makan malam di Hotel Manohara, meskipun nggak bisa nginep disana tapi kita penasaran dan makan disana. Kondisi restorannya bener-bener sepiiii banget dan hanya kita berempat yang makan. Karena saking nggak percayanya kalo semua hotel fully booked, kita tanya ke petugas Manohara Hotel, Borobudur, 'Hi may I ask you if this hotel is fully booked for tonight?', dan jawabannya 'yes it is fully booked till 24'. Bener-bener sepi dan kita selese makan tiba-tiba tanya lagi ke staf yang lainnya, semacem 'mas, ini beneran fully booked ya?', dan jawabannya masih sama. Fully booked menjadi tema kita selama liburan di Jogja. Mereka yang bukan orang Indonesia heran kok bisa sampe segininya pas liburan panjang. Well... Jogja is main destination for people.

Moral valuenya adalah, jangan cuma fokus ke tiket penerbangan/kereta atau apapun untuk mencapai tujuan, tapi pikirkan juga dimana mau tidur, otherwise anda akan menggembel selama perjalanan 😂😂😂😂

[Book] Dunia Cecilia

'apakah kalian membicarakan hal semacam itu di surga?' 'tapi kami berusaha tidak membicarakannya dekat-dekat Tuhan. ia sangat sensitif terhadap kritik' Yap, sepenggal dialog antara Cecilia dan malaikat Ariel. Saya mengenal Jostein Gaarder sejak kuliah. Ehhhh 'mengenal' dalam artian kenal bukunya ya, kalo bisa kenal pribadi mah bisa seneng jingkrak-jingkrak hehehe. Jadi karena teman saya mendapat tugas kuliah membaca satu novel filsafat berjudul Dunia Sophie, saya jadi sedikit mengetahui si bapak Gaarder ini. Enak ya tugasnya anak sastra baca novel, tugas anak matematika ya baca sih, tapi pembuktian kalkulus -_- Dunia Cecilia ini buku pertama Jostein Gaarder yang saya baca, karena buku Dunia Shopie sangatlah berat berdasar review teman saya. Saya sih nggak perlu baca buku itu karena teman saya sudah benar-benar mahir bercerita. Jadilah saya sudah paham bener cerita Dunia Sophie tanpa membacanya. Novel ini atas rekomendasi teman saya, dia bilang kala

Feeling Balanced

Never thought that I could feel this balanced. I now understand what zen is.  After all ups and downs that made me question my existential (probably won't be the last), I am starting to feel only love and less hate. As if love and compassion filling my heart every day. It's easy to annoy me normally, but so far, this past couple of months I feel less annoyed. So weird, crazy, yet amazing. Say, when I hear people talking about things I prefer not to talk about, like polygamy, I don't feel hate anymore. Usually, I'll say bad words, cursing them, you name it. But last night I watched a video about that and it made me feel "HA HA HA Stupid ignorant reasons" that was it. I thought I'll be emotional and angry, but I didn't. I even take pity for them. I know it's their right to do so, but the youngest wife wanted to go to college, and instead, she is married to that old guy who promised her to pay for her college. But that never happens (yet) even after 3

The Reward of Teaching

Buku belajar Bahasa Indonesia dalam berbagai bahasa. I've become a teacher since semester 9. That being said, my teaching journey started in 2013. Took hiatus for 2 something years then I came back to these exam sheets, students, books, and social interactions. Didn't even want to become one but I fell in love right after I jumped in.  I guess I need to ask to apologize to my dad. I was mad at him a long time ago because he asked me to be one lol. Well, maybe I just didn't like the idea of being a teacher in a class where your students don't even care about you telling stuff in front of the class. That actually made me realize that I prefer to teach whoever wants to learn. Although sometimes I just need to teach without knowing what's their reasons to learn, and that is also fine. I do what I had to do. That is why I hate grading because I don't mind giving them a perfect score but what's the point if they know nothing after the course ended? I never teach a
