Wild Monkey

Sometimes my mind just like a wild monkey. Uncontrollable, noisy, and crazy. The more I let it free, more crazy it is. Sometimes deep breathing and trying to focused on something else helps to control this wild monkey, but sometimes it drives me crazy!

I'm a human being and still learning to control my body and mind. Keep learning, be patient, and persistent.

God please lead me...

Linkin Park: The Hunting Party

Posted by engi at 1:24:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post

I like Linkin Park since I was in high school. It was their first album, Hybrid Theory. Now you can guess how old am I from this timeline, lol.

In my house we only had one TV, and that time our TV was broken. So for me the only source to get music update back then was only from radio. How about internet? Man.. it was 1999 in a small town in Indonesia, internet was something new and very expensive. So I couldn't afford it, radio was free ;) One of my friend mentioned about this band, Linkin Park. She said their song was amazing. So I stayed tune in front of my radio waiting for this band. And my first song was "In The End". I was hypnotized, feel amazed with their song, a beautiful rock song. And since that day I became their fan. I bought their albums and always follow their news update.

I was a teenage and I thought they are able to understand me through their songs. Their songs was heal my soul at some point. I love them!

Hybrid Theory always be my favorite album, while A Thousand Suns is my least fave one. The Hunting Party is their sixth studio album, it reminds me to their first album. It has more rock touch, which I like and also has a little bit slow beat touch that reminds me to Minutes to Midnight. Overall I love The Hunting Party, although when I played it next to my mom she said, "Why is he (Chester:p) keep screaming?" LOL.. poor mom! I think must use my head phones!

Mudikkkkkkk...... (lagi!)

Posted by engi at 11:14:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post


Baru bulan April kemarin Engi mudik karena ngurusin transkrip n ijazah untuk ngelanjutin studi. Eh.. tanpa diduga and dinyana awal Agustus mudik lagi, yay! \^_^/

Awal cerita dimulai saat Engi lagi berkelana di Chiangmai bareng my hubby. Hari itu hari terakhir puasa alias malam takbiran. Karena puasa di jalan cuman dengan suami tanpa emak and adek di Indo, tiba-tiba hati merasa merana. Walhasil mewek tanpa sebab. Si hubby jadi bingung nanyain kenapa mewek. Aku bilang tiba-tiba ngerasa sedih nggak bisa barengin Ibu lebaran di Indo. Sedangkan nggak ada budget buat pulang mudik lebaran karena sudah pulang bulan April. Hubby bilang "udah kamu pulang aja sendiri ke Indo, ntar aku pulang ke Cina naek kereta biar still on budget". Tambah mewek lah aku jadinya mendengar kata-kata suamiku yang baik hati ini. Yang rela naek kereta dari Bangkok ke Cina biar irit ongkos. Aku bilang nggak mau, karena emang kita musti irit tabungan and mungkin aku cuma sensitif sesaat karena ini malam takbiran. Hubby bilang "aku tau rasanya kangen ma ibu, jadi kamu mending pulang kasian Ibu sendirian. Biarin dah duit habis, yang penting kamu n ibu bahagia". Mewek lagiiiii... sambil bilang gak usah...

Setelah jalan-jalan sebentar balik lagi ke hostel karena mulai turun hujan. Capek, akhirnya ketiduran. Eh bangun tidur si hubby bilang, "aku udah beliin tiket pulang ke Indonesia tgl 3, udah bilang ibumu biar dia hepi" - sambil tersenyum manis. Huwaaaaa... mewek lagi deh aku sambil meluk si hubby! I feel so lucky! Hepi karena hubby udah beliin tiket mudik tapi sedih karena tiketnya mahal, sekitar $400. "Kan mahal..." Aku bilang gitu. "Tabungan makin habis dong..." Hubby bilang "Biarin duit habis, asal kamu hepi. Kamu adalah hidupku, kalo duit bisa cari lagi" I hugged him so tight, still sobbed. Bersyukur pada Tuhanku yang Maha Pemurah, yang memberiku suami yang sangat mencintaiku!

So, tanggal 3 Agustus mudiklah aku ke kampung halamanku. Bertemu dengan ibuku, yang sangat bersyukur akan kebaikan Tuhan dan suamiku. Mudik... bahagia rasanya!! ^_^
