Menyambut Ramadhan

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

“Hai orang-orang yang beriman, diwajibkan atas kamu berpuasa sebagaimana diwajibkan atas orang-orang sebelum kamu agar kamu bertakwa.” (QS: Al Baqarah 183)

Enfin, le Ramadhan est venu. Dire, bienvenue!! Sebuah bulan yang benar-benar ditunggu oleh umat islam di seluruh dunia, tak terkecuali kaum-kaum fasiq seperti saya. Ramadhan memang selalu menyisakan banyak cerita-cerita indah, seperti halnya harus membiasakan diri makan sahur jam 3 pagi (meski buat saya sudah biasa, berhubung saya hobby begadang), membiasakan menahan lapar dari terbit fajar hingga terbenam matahari (inipun saya nyaris sudah biasa, terlebih kalau akhir bulan).

A Whiz Kid Speaks Out

When I was on Trevi Fountain, Roma couple of months ago, I think I was being a part of the Italian myth that believe by throwing three coins into the fountain, then our wish will come true. I knew, there were going to be harsh critics on my action but I didn’t give a damn what anybody thought about me. “At least, you’ll be still praying for your God” the devil whispered it to me. Then I threw three 2 cents coins and made a wish for each ones. Sure, I also wished for my yearning uptown girl despite I’ve never personally attempted to attract her since I have absolutely no idea to do it till now. Hahaha, what the fuckin’ loser!!!

You’re not afraid, so what?

Kami Tidak Takut!! (We're Not Afraid!)After the JW Marriott & Ritz Carlton blasts, Indonesia Unite’s slogan “We’re Not Afraid” has been getting popular. “We’re not afraid” actually is an outlet for the global community to speak out against the acts of terror that have struck London, Madrid, New York, Afghanistan, Bali, etc. It’s also aimed to hail against the atrocities occurring in cities around the world each and every day. So, it’s a worldwide action for people not willing to be cowed by terrorism and fear mongering. In Indonesia, it’s aimed to encourage Indonesians to be no longer repressed by the fears about any terrorism threats. That’s it, that slogan seems show to the world that everything’s okay though the bombs have killed more than 10 victims and injured dozens others. Hmm.. sounds good, right? They try to stick out our strength and make the terrorists quiver.

Happy Birthday, Gita Gutawa

Gita Gutawa

It’s your birthday, sing aloud, you will surely make us proud.
If your voice, cracks in half, we shall all, have a laugh.

Don’t be shy, pick a song. Just make sure, it’s not too long.
Old or new, all the same. Aging, we should never be ashamed.

If you choose, something old. My blue suede shoes, prepare to behold.
Let us dance up, a wild storm. Until our spirits, are joyful and warm.

Happy belated birthday, princess!! Our love for you, we wish to extend.
Experiences filled, with joy and laughter, special memories, we shall recall after.

Ferguson Must Ready For Their Title Drought

“That has always been the case here at the club. When you lose the last game of the season you have two or three months to reflect on the disappointment. We have not enjoyed that. But we will cope and bounce back.”

Sir Alex Ferguson

Sir Alex FergusonThe summer transfer window has yet to close. We still have about three weeks left to come to the deadline. Many hot transfers have been signed. The world transfer record even has been broken by 80 million pounds Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid & Manchester City (till I wrote this article) is the club with the most expenditure to sign new comers. Serie A has again lost their super star Zlatan Ibrahimovich due to a swap deal for Samuel Eto’o. Flamboyant striker Andrei Arshavin promises a bright future to Arsenal who have lost Emmanuel Adebayor to Manchester City. David Villa can leave Mestalla in the right price. Again, it’s a very great movement in the current economic climate, where many lower league clubs are struggling to even survive, let alone compete in the transfer market. I really enjoy it!!! It’s none of my business if all the big arrivals won’t improve the quality of players in the domestic country. However, La Liga as the most stunning domestic league after Kaka, Ibra, & Ronaldo’s arrivals is no longer part of RCTI sports programs next season. So sad!!

The August Deep Sorrow

WS Rendra (Left) and Mbah SuripI think all people in this world will agree when I say death and sorrow always be missing you in every tomorrow. Yeps, look at the first week of this August. Indonesia surprisingly has lost two famous artist named Mbah Surip and WS Rendra at such a near future. Mbah Surip’s career cut shockingly short due to the heart failure in the age of 60. Meanwhile, renowned Indonesian poet W.S. Rendra, died at a hospital last night after undergoing treatment for a month for conorary heart disease in the age of 74. It’s been really hard to loose at the drop of a hat, but it’s been a God’s fate. Both two of them have wonderful stories during their life until their doom.

It’s been really hard

It’s been really hard to practice something named ‘Ikhlas’.
It’s been really hard to give and understand only.
It’s been really hard to get forgiveness from someone hurt.
It’s been really hard to keep in mind positively.
It’s been really hard to love someone who loves you not.
It’s been really hard to get back and make a new life.

It’s been really hard to do all…
