T: Nda, bunga bangkai tuh bau ya?
B: Iya. Bau bangettt!
T: Bangkainya bangkai apa?
B: -__-

T: Nda, we are living in a dome right?
B: hmmm
T: look at the sky, its like a dome. so we are living in a dome. just like a half-cut ball.
B: it is not the way we should look at it. the earth itself is a sphere, and the sky is so wide and limitless that is why you see it like a dome.

T: Bunda, I want to go to the moon.
B: me too. but we should build a rocket to go to the moon.
T: what? build a rocket? okay, there's a space in the backyard we can build the rocket there.
B: no we can't. we have to go to florida, there is a rocket shuttle there.
T: how to get there?
B: uhm ... a bit hard.
T: nothing is hard, you said. it is just we don't know how to do it. bilang aja Bunda enggak tau gimana kesananya.
B: -__-

T: Bunda, I want to see UFO. Why nobody ever seen it?
B: some people did. at least, they think they have seen it.
T: why can't we see it like we see aeroplanes?
B: because they are afraid of humans. because they are not humans. they are being watched if they are visible.
T: you said the universe is endless, the UFO must be hiding somewhere
B: exactly my point.
T: I know the biggest star!
B: what is it?
T: it is the sun!
B: yes, it is biggest because it is the nearest star. look at my hand (I put my hand close to your nose)
    it is big, right? but see my hand if I pull it back, it is getting smaller right?
T: uh, tangan bunda bau otak-otak!
B: there goes my scientific mood 

T: I want to marry La Luna
B: why?
T: because she is soooo cute!
B: what is marry?
T: in bahasa indonesia, it is called menikah.
B: what is menikah
T: titan enggak tau, menurut titan nikah itu barengan.
B: there's no way you can marry your sister
T: masa barengan aja enggak boleh?
B: ...

You hate spider, but you did well making the spider robot

love is love. marriage is another thing.

of all the things I ever wondered, ... I think I never wonder whom my kids will be married to. or to picture myself holding grand babies. not just a not yet, I think it is simply too hard to bear and too absurd to think of. but then I promise myself. I promise I will not ever push titan and luna to get married or even if they are married; I will not ask them when to have kids.

many times I wondered that marriage is overrated. and the only reason to get married is not love, but to realise life is too hard to bear when you are all alone. because, however, marriage is a conditional love. hubby once said, marriage is not all fancy and glitter. the lowest it can get is, to keep functioning and it will survive. how both parties can be functional one to another, is another story.

to ariawan, a guy of mine,
the one who always wake me up from my princessy dreams. love you.

Three hours late.

2 AM and I stepped in to the house. Hubby was waiting for me. This was not the first time, and not the latest hour I had ever experienced with over time.

"See you soon Bunda. Or at 8, or at 9, or at 10, or at 11 like you said you would be late." Said my son.

I smiled as I entered the house. I smelled home. I saw my beautiful mess. As I picked up some toys on the floor, I imagined what games the kids had played today. There was a drawing, mini ceramics pots, not too chaotic for kids who were left with nini and aki without nannies.

I also saw their time tables, with some check marks on the list. Those that they weren't checked was the responsibility to wash their own dishes. I saw some dirty cups piling up. I saw the microwave's door left half-opened, a baking sheet and a knife. I wonder what they have cooked.
I also saw minecraft was in active window and some search on youtube and google.

Getting home in this hour and not seeing their faces but seeing all the mess the…

Life. Just like what I wanted.

Tiga belas bulan yang lalu, saya memutuskan untuk kembali bekerja setelah 2,5 tahun jadi freelance (tapi lebih banyak free-nya sih hahaha). Satu-satunya yang bikin saya merasa harus bekerja ya cuma Apple. Sisanya, banyak project yang saya tolak-tolakin karena males aja sih intinya. Belaguk bangetlah pokoknya.

Setelah merasa udah nggak produktif lagi di rumah, otak berasa tumpul dan rasa percaya diri udah nyungsep, saat itulah saya terima tawaran untuk kembali ke advertising. Banyak yang nyinyir sih, menganggap industri itu gelap banget dan ngapain udah enak-enak di rumah kok ya balik ngantor. Alasannya cuma satu: bosen di rumah.

Enggak tahu hal baik apa yang telah saya lakukan dalam hidup, ternyata saya dianugerahi tim yang baiiiiik banget. Anaknya manis-manis, good attitude dan yang paling penting; penuh tanggung jawab. Saya ngerasa banyak belajar dari mereka. Mulai hal baru di luaran sana sampai cara pakai krim mata. Enggak sedikit juga kesedihan yang kita tanggung bareng-bareng, da…
