You are my home...


Mengutip sebuah tulisan lama:
"it's amazing how life can play tricks on us."

Ketika waktu terus berjalan tanpa henti, hidup - melalui jalannya yang terus bercabang - juga terus bergerak. Dan di atas jalan hidup kita berdua terus berjalan, terkadang berdampingan tapi terkadang berjauhan, menuju arah yang sama.

Semua berawal dari tahun 2003. Dan semenjak itu berbagai kejadian telah kita hadapi, berbagai kejutan hidup kita lewati, dan entah seberapapun jauhnya kita berjalan kita selalu saling menemukan lagi di tikungan-tikungan kecil yang kita lewati. Sepanjang waktu dan hidup yang berjalan mata dan hati kita tampaknya memandang terlalu jauh ke depan, tanpa melihat ke kanan ataupun ke kiri, melupakan banyak hal yang ikut berjalan di sekeliling kita, dan selalu gagal menghindari lubang yang menganga di depan langkah kita. 

"life is beautiful with all its tricks and surprises."

Tahun 2010, hidup lagi-lagi memberikan kejutannya. Di saat kita sama-sama terpuruk di dalam lubang, setelah kita sebelumnya berjalan saling meninggalkan, tikungan itu muncul lagi. Dan kali ini kita baru menyadari, bahwa kita selalu tetap berjalan searah namun berlari terlalu kencang dan melupakan satu sama lain.

Akhirnya perlahan-lahan potongan demi potongan puzzle yang selama ini kita cari itu pun terkumpul. Dan kita dapat melengkapinya bersama. Kemudian pada tahun 2012 kita memenuhi beberapa potongannya bersama mereka yang telah menjadi saksi kejutan-kejutan kecil kita. 

***

Ada sebuah potongan puzzle dari hari itu yang terlambat untuk dibagi, tapi selama waktu dan hidup masih berjalan tampaknya kata 'terlambat' terlalu tabu untuk diucapkan.

Untuk kalian yang telah lama ada di sekeliling kami dan selalu ada untuk berbagi, silakan menikmati...


World's full of strangers
You're the only one I see
No matter how far I'm lost
Always coming back to you I'll be
Life tells us nothing
They make what we believe
Wrote down words to a story
Full of flashes of memories
 
This has been a nice, nice dream
Don't fade as I wake
For I'll be here for you to take
 
You are a piece of my surprise
Hidden beneath all mysteries
It's you who I want to keep and to keep me forever
 
I know I've gone too far for too long
I'm coming home
 
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
To you
 
I'm coming home

-HOME-

A Short Getaway

Last week I went to a short trip with my husband on his company's one day tour. The company where my husband is working at held this short trip for their employees to West Java, starting the tour at Carita Resort, then to Tangkuban Perahu and then finished the tour at Lembang. All of the destinations were at the mountains area on West Java, so it was actually quite refreshing since Jakarta's weather was extremely hot.

We didn't take any photos at Carita, but my husband (and everyone else, of course) had a lot of fun bathing at the steamy hot pool. The resort that we went to at Carita was a huge area of public pool and baths with hot water. The natural mountain water was mixed with sulfur that came from the deep mountain that cause the water to be really hot, and they also said that bathing in the water could cure a lot of sickness.

We took more photos at the next destination, Tangkuban Perahu. It was really awesome to be back there again since my last visit many many years ago, which I took with my family back when I was a child. It's really crowded now but the view was really beautiful. Too bad that only after about 15 minutes that we got to the crater (which is located at the peak), it immediately started to rain and the fog got so thick that we couldn't take any photos of the crater. The weather was so cold but fresh. I was grateful that I wore a thick cardigan on the trip.

What I wore: Apricot Striped Tribal Asymmetric Hem Cardigan Sweater from SheInside, Brown Top from Shopatvelvet, Logo Jeans, CottonInk x TLTSN Flat Shoes




Though we didn't take any photos of the crater, we did take photos on the scenery. And we also noticed that the forest surrounding the crater site and the forest that we passed along the way looked really awesome, both mystical and beautiful at the same time. Here are some of the photos that I posted on instagram from the tour. 

 



The photos of the surrounding forest I postes on Instagram.
My husband took this with camera that we brought at the tour.
See how serious my husband looks trying to look at the crater through the fog :*
Taken from my husband's Instagram. Looks so mystical with the wet earth and the fog. Love it so much...
The one day tour really reminds me how I miss travelling with my husband. Hope we can have another travelling trip together again soon.

Until next time!
