The path I’m on right now

I want to tell you something about my experience. I was thinking about it while I was writing the story I made. What I want to tell you is about the south town square of Yogyakarta. People call it Alkid (Alun – alun kidul, alun – alun selatan). In that town square there are 2 big bayan trees. people believe if you able to walk through the path between the trees and pass, all your wishes will come true.

That day, on July 2011, I went there and tried the challenge. I didn’t pass, but struck the tree. One of them. I write it in my story with a little editing of course. Citra as some people around me and i’m Isabella. although i didn’t pass the trees but I hope I could be like her who pass the burden in front of her.

… Isabella feels like she already walked for ages, but she hasn’t reach the spot. The feeling of doubt and fear start to rise up in her heart. Some moments later, she hits something and she spontaneously stop moving. It’s the bayan tree’s roots she hit..

“Don’t stop, Keep walking, Bel.”, Citra shouted .

“I can’t. I think I’m stuck”,Isabella replied.

“No. Just keep moving.”..

Isabella follows Citra’s words. She keeps walking, pushing forward and her steps were troubled because her body, specially her head was struck by the piles of roots. When she thinks she can’t move anymore, she feels the burden in front of her became less. .

“Yes. Keep walking. Just a little bit more.”, Citra shouted again.

Isabella walks forward until she doesn’t feel the roots anymore. ….”.

Fullmoon Freak ?


I have a weird hobby, if you call it a hobby. Every month there are at least two phase in the moon cycle. You will find the crescent moon and the fullmoon. I love to see the crescent moon, especially at the day of Eid Mubarak last month. As a newly born – moon, it was very beautiful to see with 2 stars near it, the Venus and Jupiter people said.

What i love the most is fullmoon. If I am walking back home after work, I would stop a little while just too stare at the moon or I will stare at it while I’m walking. I had just came from the rooftop of my boarding house, just to see the fullmoon.I took a picture of it, but it’s not as good as the profesionals did. If you stare at the sky tonight, the moon is actually surrounded by shining stars. Actually. We couldn’t see it clearly because of the city lights.

I still remember when I was a kid, I also love to stare at the night sky with the shining stars all over it. At that time, I still can see it clearly even though I live in the city because there are not as much city lights as nowaday’s. I even found fireflies at that time. Hhh… I miss that old time. What I want right now is lay down and enjoy the view of the moon
