thank you bubu, i love you

You gave me new perspective

this is how ariawan make bed.
i never did it before, pulling off the corner to the other side.
not a big thing, but i kinda like it.

You taught me small things that matter

this is how ariawan rearranged things in the kitchen.
he folded the kitchen cloth in such a way to become a table cloth.
he also taught me that sea salt and kosher salt can help us tender the meat. 

You fixed things in my life

stairs to the second floor has been dark all along.
he put a light on, and so i won't get stumble he said.
and so malicca won't get scared if he has to go upstairs alone. 

You gave enlightenment to  things I don't understand

what happened every time i bake was that I have to pull off cables to get the lights on.
here and there, sometimes malicca got stumbled because of the lying cable in the floor.
as ariawan comes to my life, i got it all built-in. 

You cooked for me

ariawan is good with grilling and baking.
his oxtail soup is super awesome and his steak is comparable (or many times, better) to the ones we usually eat in a resto.
we love to invite our close friends and dine together.
but all in all, even though they were not as good, it is always good to have a guy who cooks for you. am i right or right? 

You supported me to discover new things

Ariawan always supports me, no matter how stupid I invent things or when they are out of my hands. he helps me with bebikinan, helps me with domestic errands, he simplifies my life.
and get them easier for me to chew. 

You time traveled me to childhood

this is my wrist watch when i was in high school and its been abandoned for years, because it was broken (at least i thought it so).
but as ariawan came back into my life, he fixed it.
the watch remained me how i met him the first time when we were young.
some things are built for timeless.

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…
