Happy Birthday, My Everything.


Happy Birthday, Mak.
I sincerely and continuously pray that Allah bless you 
with a long, healthy life, and protect you wherever and whenever.
Thank you for raising me.
Thank you for always praying for my best.
Thank you for missing me whenever I am away.
Thank you for letting me know that without a single world.
Thank you for being the best mother I could ever wish for.
Thank you for everything.
Please keep looking after me from now on and forever.

"Later,
Will I be in your position
and feel the pain you felt?
There’s bound to be times when rebellious words
Will break my heart and make me cry"

Our Love ~ To My Parents ~

IT'S BEEN A DECADE (Tsunami 26 December 2004)

It feels like just yesterday that I was a final-year middle school student preparing for term exam. It feels like yesterday that the earth shook so strongly. It feels like just yesterday that I rushed out of the dormitory only to find that building collapse minutes afterwards. It feels like just yesterday that I saw people coming to our school in the wrecked states, saying things I couldn’t understand about the gigantic sea waves that destroyed the land. It feels like just yesterday was the first time I learned a new Japanese word: tsunami.

It all feels just like yesterday. In fact, it was ten years ago. A long time measured by a decade.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY by EXILE

Today I want to tell you my feelings, straight from the heart
Just for now, just for today, I'll say those embarrassing words
I don't have anything clever to say, but with all my heart...

Happy Birthday to you
Today's your special day
Happy Birthday to you, present for you
I'll send this song to you

Look, just close your eyes softly and replay the memories
You break down crying from carelessness, but now you can laugh
You've become one year older and now I send this to you

Happy Birthday to you
Your own endless story
Happy Birthday to you, present for you
Always stay yourself and never change

What are you doing now in that bustling city?
I'll keep shouting until my voice gives out

Happy Birthday to you
Today's your special day
Happy Birthday to you, present for you
I'll send it to you

Happy Birthday to you
Your own endless story
Happy Birthday to you, present for you
Always stay yourself and never change
-------------

Karena Mereka Percaya

Mungkin, untuk sebagian orang, melanjutkan pendidikan ke luar negeri adalah hal yang biasa. Namun bagi saya ini adalah pencapaian yang luar biasa. Yang telah ada dalam wujud cita-cita dan saya nyatakan dalam bentuk usaha lebih dari enam tahun lamanya.

Hanya Untukmu, Bunda

Kulihat buliran bening membasahi 
kulit lembutmu, Bunda 
Ratapan hatimu telah mengoyak 
gendang telingaku 
Tenanglah 
Aku bersamamu, Bunda

Insomnia and Oversleeping

Assalamu'alaikum, apa kabar? Semoga selalu dalam lindungan Allah semuanya, aamiin...

Minggu lalu saya sok sibuk mempersiapkan diri untuk ujian, makanya tidak ada postingan yang panjang. Nah, karena ujiannya sudah selesai dan saya hanya bisa berdoa untuk hasilnya, kali ini saya mau cerita lagi. Singkat saja sebenarnya. Terkait gangguan tidur yang tertera pada judul entry kali ini.

"PRESENT" by Ayumi Hamasaki (English Translation)

Another nice song...

It was because I could hear everyone’s voices
That I was able to come to this place 

And it's because I’ve been surrounded by everyone’s love 
That I can send out my voice like this

There are people who always give me a smile
Even when they must be tired

And people who hurry to me
Even when they don’t have time
And you, who scolds me when I’m wrong
Thank you

祈り続ける



Karena harapan adalah kebiasaan yang sulit untuk ditinggalkan,

tidak ada salahnya untuk tetap memanjatkan doa. 

Bukankah Sang Maha Pengasih tidak pernah lelah mendengarkan permohonan hamba-Nya?

"Dan apabila hamba-hamba-Ku bertanya kepadamu tentang Aku, maka (jawablah), sesungguhnya Aku dekat. Aku mengabulkan permohonan orang yang berdoa apabila dia berdo'a kepada-Ku. Maka hendaklah mereka memenuhi (perintah-Ku) dan beriman kepada-Ku, agar mereka mendapat petunjuk."

(Q.S. al-Baqarah: 186)

On A Wooden Bench

(You may want to read Unusual Question to fully understand the story.)

One yellow maple leaf fell off its branch. It danced along the rhythm of the wind blowing and eventually landed on the green grass covering the land. The stem happened to drop right in front of a white sport shoe, as if it had grown out of the shoe.


The owner of the said shoe, Shota, a young man in his early twenties, sat himself down on a wooden bench just below the tree. He did not seem to notice the fallen leaf as he was staring at two kids playing catch ball in the other part of the park. The park itself was quite empty. Not many people wanted to spend time outdoor when the air got chillier in the beginning of autumn.


Shota zipped his jacket up as he felt the cold wind blew over his body. The day was getting dark and he had been sitting there for quite some time already.
