Big Shot Deal? Big Deal...

Mr Kim Jae Su is a big shot deal in this Milking Cow Co. I have to respect him, yes. About his heir is another story. This is an absolute fictional plot I have in mind if I met Mr Kim's Junior. Why? Because Junior has an irritating introduction, a strong statement in advance which informs that he is Mr Kim's son.

Junior : (lame hand shake) Hello, I'm Junior, Mr Kim Jae Su's son.
Matahari : (firm hand shake) Nice to meet you, I'm Matahari, Mr Soe The Tio's son.
Jr : And who that might be?
Matahari : Oh he is just Mrs Soe Lin Poe's husband.
Jr : And she is?
Matahari : She is Soe Tie Qi's mother.
Jr : Dude, I don't really need to know all of your family member.
Matahari : Same here, Dude. Same here.

Ordo Ab Chao

Seperti ruang sempit tempatku bernaung saat ini, kemarin luluh lantak berantakan namun hari ini perlahan menemukan bentuknya. Mungkin dimulai dengan susunan mosaik di pojokan ruang yg nantinya akan terpasang dapur. Kemudian menyusul sofa mungil berwarna abu-abu di ujung ruang tengah, lalu menyusul entah apalagi. 

Tentu saja akan terasa perih mengingat apa saja yg harus aku gadaikan untuk sebuah perasaan ini, namun aku tak risau dengan apa yg akan terjadi. Karena aku sangat menyukai "saat ini", saat ketika waktu berjalan seolah selamanya. 

Bahkan tak mengindahkan pertanyaan mereka mengenai akankah aku menemukan kedamaian setelah semua kekacauan ini berakhir. 

Terjatuh, tergulung ombak, menelan bergalon air asin, namun ketika seorang peselancar mencapai pantai, ia akan kembali ke tengah laut mencari ombak. Aku terlalu muda untuk beristirahat. 

Saat ini terlalu dini untuk menyerah kepada waktu.

Let Love be Your Energy

I have 3 days workshop at Padalarang, 15 minutes from downtown Bandung via toll. I stay in Bandung because the Workshop Organizer told me that there was no good hotel arround Padalarang. But one of my colleague chose to commute, Jakarta - Padalarang. It takes 2,5 - 3 hours of driving from Jakarta to Bandung.

Lawni : Dude, aren't you tired?
The Dude : Not really, it was a joy ride.
Lawni : It is like 6 hours of driving every single day!
The Dude : Well, a husband's gotta do what a husband's gotta do.
Lawni : I envy you, Dude. I envy for lacking that kind of love to endure the journey.

Then I put my music on and play Street Spirit for the Awesome Dude :

Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out

This machine will, will not communicate
These thoughts and the strain I am under
Be a world child, form a circle
Before we all go under
And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs, dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see its beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out again

Immerse your soul in love
Immerse your soul in love

Prestasi

Scene : Kamar bayi di acara akikah putri kedua seorang teman baik. Si bayi sedang di gendongan Ibu Mertua.

Law : Boleh saya gendong, Bu?
Ibu Mertua : Silakan, Nak. Biar ketularan ya?
Law : Wah, jangan gitu dong doanya, Bu. (langsung selangkah mundur)
Ibu Mertua : Lho, kenapa begitu? Kalo dikasih sama Allah gak boleh nolak. Kan itu namanya anugerah.
Law : Kalo saya sekarang, gak bikin bayi adalah prestasi, Bu.
Ibu Mertua : (heran) Kok prestasi?
Law : Saya masih single. (nyengir ear to ear)

If you know what I mean.
