I'm Lovin' It

     Hello everyone. So sorry for late posting. It's electricity blakout season in my town. Annoying. Let's just forget it and continue to the blog post. LOL. Last Thursday, my friends and I visited Grand Opening of 1st McDonalds store in West Sumatera. Call me katrok or ndeso or kamseupay or nerd or looser or something or whatever, I dont' care, but seriously, I was really really really happy visiting Mcd for the first time...

     It's located near my campus. So, when my friends and I got break time, we went there! when we got there, it was filled by crowded visitors. Fortunately, some of my friends already booked place for us ^^ Btw, I tweeted something when arrived there...


     Unexpected thing. some minutes after that, McD official responded my tweet...
     Funny. Oh, you know what. I just realized that this store sells varied menus, and not expensive. Then my friends and I choosed our favorite menus to eat, excitedly..

 

We all love this McFlurry and Sundae Ice Cream So much!
Congratulations for the new branch, McD!

See yaa everyone!
Toowhit Toowhoo!

Yogie and The Shiny Land - Part #6 (Final part)

     Hello everyone. Jadi mungkin ini adalah bagian akhir dari serial "Yogie and The Shiny Land". Terkesan terlalu cepat? LOL. Yaa, waktu itu redaksi koran hanya membolehkan cerbung/cerita serial maksimal 6 bagian saja. Karena banyak penulis lain yang ingin cerbungnya dimuat juga. hehe. So yeah. Jangan protes kalau cerita ini tamat dalam 6 bagian.
     Oh iya. Terima kasih kepada teman-teman yang telah memberi komentar. Cerbung ini nanti akan saya jadikan E-book yang bisa didownload, dan tentu saja komentar teman-teman akan saya masukkan juga. Terakhir, terima kasih juga untuk teman-teman semua yang sudah membaca cerita ini. Tanpa pembaca, tulisan ini tentu saja hanya file terabaikan, hehe. Enjoy! :)

(P.S. Cerbung ini telah dipublikasikan di Harian Umum Singgalang, terbit dan beredar di Sumatera Barat, edisi Mei-Juni 2011)

*Catatan: Ini bukan foto Shiny Land, okay?
Ini hanya gambar dari google (click here) yg kebetulan mirip deskripsi ciri-ciri nya.

Belum baca edisi sebelumnya? Click-click!
Ringkasan cerita sebelumnya:

    Perang benar-benar terjadi. Raja dark Kingdom dan seluruh pasukannya berhasil  menyerang sekaligus mengalahkan Shiny Land. Yogie serta Gutanana terdesak hinga ke atap istana. Cahaya terang lagi silau menyelimuti seluruh penjuru saat Yogie menggenggam kristal di ekor Grumpie biru dengan penuh harapan...

  -----Yogie Series #6 - Happy Ending??-----
 oleh: Aul Howler
 


      Yogie membuka matanya. Perasaan aneh sejenak menusuk ulu hatinya saat renda-renda, hiasan-hiasan berkilau, suara nyanyian dan lain-lain secara ajaib sudah berada di jangkauan inderanya. Dan ia sedikit heran, karena mendapati dirinya tengah duduk tersandar di sebuah kursi empuk.

“Untuk Yogie Sang penyelamat, barra” Kepala suku mengangkat gelas di tangannya.
“Untuk Yogie Sang penyelamat, barra” Sambung Raja dan Ratu.
Petinggi-petinggi Shiny Land tak mau kalah. Kemudian mereka semua saling menyenggolkan gelas. Yogie boleh jadi tak tahu kenapa bisa berada di sana, tapi ia tahu bahwa mereka semua bersulang untuk dirinya.

“Kalian berlebihan,” Ujarnya.
Ratu melotot, “Berlebihan, barra??
Bahkan ini masih sangaaat kurang, barra!”
“Ya. Kami seharusnya mengarakmu keliling Shiny Land, barra” Tambah Raja “Hanya saja kau pingsan di puncak istana, dan kami pikir mengarakmu tak akan membuatmu lebih baik, barra.”
Yogie melongo. “Tapi tak perlu berpesta seperti ini hanya karena aku dan Grumpie biru mengalahkan mereka… “

Kepala suku tertawa mengikik, menampakkan giginya yang nyaris tak ada. “Kami tak merayakan kegagah-beranianmu anak muda. Kami merayakan pertunanganmu, tentu saja, barra…”
 “APAA?? AKU… AKU… APA??”
“Reaksimu persis dengan orang itu, saat Ayahku berencana mengadakan pesta pertunangan untuk kalian. Itu, yang berdiri di sana, barra” Ujar Gutarara sambil menunjuk ke sudut ruangan.

Yogie menoleh. Gutanana sedang mematut diri di cermin antik yang menggantung anggun di dinding istana. Ia mengenakan gaun seperti para putri impian di film-film fantasi.

“Jadi aku dan… dia… Ya ampun! Seharusnya ada yang meminta persetujuanku dulu!”
“Tak perlu. Karena kau yang telah terpilih oleh takdir, barra. Bagaimanapun kau menolak atau membantah atau mengingkari atau apapun yang terjadi, takdir akan mempersatukan kalian kembali, barra.”

“Kukira Aku sebagai anak sulung akan bertunangan lebih dulu, barra. Ternyata adikku yang kampungan itu yang lebih dulu. Bahkan dengan sampah asing macam kau”  Ujar Gutarara mengedipkan matanya, angkuh. Sifat centil dan kasar nya pun ternyata persis dengan Ciara, gadis yang disukai Yogie di dunianya. Tapi sekarang, ia merasa tak yakin lagi bahwa ia masih menyukai Ciara. Ya, entah kenapa, ia membenarkan perkataan kepala suku. Dirinya adalah pasangan Gutanana. Artinya ia sebenarnya menyukai Gutanana.
“Tutup mulutmu dan jaga sikapmu. Jangan rusak kebahagiaan adikmu sendiri, barra” Ratu mengomentari ketus.

“DHUARR!!!”
Sebuah ledakan mengahncurkan dinding istana. Lalu beberapa dhuar dan dhuarr lagi menghancurkan dinding-dinding lainnya. Rakyat Shiny Land yang mengira perang telah usai menjadi ribut. Kini semua dinding telah hancur, dan semua orang berkumpul menyudut di sisi kanan dan kiri Yogie. Yogie, tentu saja hilang akal.

 “YOOOOOGGIIIIEE!!!”
Sebuah suara terdengar dari langit. Yogie menggigil.
Apa-apaan ini?

“Kau dipanggil dewa, barra.” Ujar Gutanana, membuat semua orang melongo.
“YOGIE…!! YOGIEE…!!”
 Suara itu bertambah keras, memanggil-manggil.

 “Kau harus pergi, Yogie. Terima kasih untuk semuanya, barra” Gutanana menarik tangan Yogie ke halaman istana. Sebentar ia mencium pipi Yogie, dan ia berlari kembali ke puing-puing istana. Sekujur tubuh Yogie gemetar, ia meraba pipinya. Ia dicium! Dicium!

Gutanana telah berdiri di antara Ratu dan Raja. Mereka semua melambaikan tangan. Yogie ingin mengejar, tapi kakinya masih lemas dan gemetaran. “Tidak Gutanana! Aku… aku tak bisa! Ini terlalu tiba-tiba!! Aku tak bisa!!”

“YOGIE…!! YOOOOGGIIIEEE!!!”
Suara itu makin keras, dan tiba-tiba saja pancaran air yang begitu keras menghantam Yogie dari sisi kiri. Lalu kanan, lalu belakang, lalu depan. Yogie shock, tak tau apa yang terjadi. Ia basah dan kesakitan. Satu lagi pancaran air, dan paling kuat, dari bawah menghantam tubuhnya yang terlentang. Ia terlempar ke udara, dan ia melayang. Perlahan ia merasa dirinya di antara sadar dan tidak sadar, dan semua menjadi gelap.

“YOOGIEE!! BANGUN DOONG!!?”
Seorang gadis menampar-nampar pipi yogie dengan keras, dan menyiraminya berkali-kali dengan air dari botol plastik, dan satu siraman terakhir membuat Yogie terlonjak kaget.

“FFHUUAAAH!!!” Yogie berdiri, dan mengibas-ngibaskan bajunya yang basah. “Dimana ini?”
“Di lapangan, anak manja!” Ciara berteriak dari sudut lapangan. “Idih, jatuh dari sepeda aja sampai pingsan segala! Huh! Aku benci sekali dengan anak laki-laki manja!” tambahnya, kemudian ia mengayuh sepedanya pergi.

“Jangan hiraukan Ciara. Kau tak apa-apa?” Ujar Hanna, sambil mengelap wajah Yogie dengan handuk kecil. “Jangan marah kalau aku menamparmu sampai sekeras itu. Aku tak bermaksud jahat kok. Habis, kau pingsan lamaaa sekali. Hampir dua jam! Aku kira kau geger otak.”

Yogie melongo.
Pingsan? Dua jam?
Benarkah…?

“Maafkan aku.” Hanna bicara lagi. “Kukira rencana kita untuk membuatmu memenangkan balapan sepeda dengan Ciara itu akan berhasil, dan bisa membuat Ciara menjadi suka padamu. Tapi ternyata ia tambah tak menyukaimu… Ah, aku menyesal. Maafkan Aku” Bisik Hanna lirih.

“Lupakan Gutarara! Aku tak suka lagi padanya!” Ujar Yogie.
“Haaah? Gutarara? Siapa? Ciara maksud kamu?” Hanna bingung.

“Pokoknya lupakan Gutarara. Yang Aku sukai ternyata adalah kau, Gutanana!”
Hanna menepuk-nepuk dahi Yogie. “Hei, kau benar-benar geger otak rupanya? Aku Hanna! Oh, kurasa lebih baik kita ke rumah sakit saja.”
“Iya, benar. Aku suka kau, Gutanana.”

Dan sebelum Hanna menepuk dahi Yogie lagi, Yogie mencubit pipi Hanna. “Ini balasannya! Awas kalau kau mencium pipiku lagi, sayang!” Ujarnya. Dan ia mengayuh sepedanya.

“Haaah…!!? YOGIEE!!! APA MAKSUDMU!!??” Ujar Hanna, lalu ia mengayuh sepedanya pula, mengejar Yogie secepat yang ia bisa.

Sore mulai malu-malu, merangkak ke barat bersama matahari merah jambu. Rumput-rumput di lapangan bergoyang, dalam pelukan sisa angin sore yang hangat. Langit yang tadi biru mulai memerah, semerah wajah Hanna dan Yogie saat sampai di rumah.

Bunkasai [Japanese Cultural Festival]

     Hello everyone. As what I told you here, Cobie-kun's [my cell phone] camera was in the trouble and I could not use it to take pictures. It was too bad, because I see many cool things almost everyday, and could not capture 'em makes me feel like something is missing. So, when I visited Bunkasai / a Japanese cultural festival held by my campus some weeks ago, I borrowed Nando's cell phone as camera [I've been in the progress of saving money to buy a new camera, if you didn't know] to capture the moments. So, don't be angry if you see many blurry pics. Okay? ;-)

I'm sure you ever saw something like this in anime / japanese cartoon.
It's a classical decoration of Japanese's house. Hearing it makes people relax

Cherry blossom (Sakura) replica, made from paper.
That tissue doll is very similar with Izzue, right? Cool

Japanese fighter
Origami. Art of folding paper
Catching-Koi-Fishes games
Foods area.
They sold Mochi, Ramen, Sashimi, Dango, Takoyaki, Dorayaki, etc.

Anime drawings and paintings by students
Japanese dolls and souvenirs.
     I actually didn't want to visit this festival. But, three girls (my friends) asked and forced me and oddie to join them too. They didn't know it would be embrassing for boys (me and oddie)You know why? Because there were so many girly things there. I'm sure it will be full of girls. well, there were boys too. only some.
You see?
     And the most embrassing moment was when they also asked and forced me and oddie to pay ten thousand rupiah to take pictures while wearing yukata [traditional clothes from japan]. Arghh!!! But lucky us. There were some yukata for boys too. so the clothes DID NOT make me and oddie looks like girls. Fiiiuuuuuhhhh...!! [Syukurlah]

Up: Oddie and Me
Yanee, Fafa and Opha

Oddie, Yanee, Fafa, Opha and Me.
Fafa, Opha and Me.
I like the last photo.
Not too bad. I looks cool. hehe ^^

See you in the next post!
Toowhit Toowhoo!
~[u,u]~


P.S.
Actually, there were many events there. Cosplay, dance competition, etc. But I could not capture the photos. Because... Nando's cell phone was off because of low battery.
AAAAAAA!!!
Wish me wish me wish me wish me get a new camera Soon!
really need it!!

Senja Menangis

Mulanya, pilu.

Garis-garis langit memerah dalam sendu.
Lalu pilu.
Bumi merintih-rintih dalam kelu.
dan pilu.
Senja basah dalam haru.
pilu

Carving Exhibition

     Hello everyone. Some times ago I attended an exhibition (pameran karya seni) by a community of art student. They exhibited art objects in the form of carvings, which were made using materials of wood, wire, and light bulbs. Here are some snapshots..



 I wore: Black-red VOLCOM old sweater, Skinny jeans, and black sneakers.

     Cool carvings, right? I bet their hands are made from gold. Such a brilliant handmade-maker! I actually wanted to buy some of the carvings for my bedroom. Unlucky me, that art objects were not for sell. LOL. It's okay. I think I would not buy it although it was for sell. My money was not much. I'm an ordinary student, remember? hehehe..

See you in the next post!

Too Bad! Too Bad!

     Hello everyone. So sorry for late posting. I actually would update this blog 2 days ago. But what we plan to do is not always running smooth as what we hope, right?

     yep, I was decorating bulletin board at the Campus when earthquake happened. It was the first earthquake of the year, perhaps. Nobody thought it would happen. Shocking. wow.. You know, Sumatera island has history of many big earthquakes in Indonesia. It happens almost every year in Sumatera, especially at "Aceh" and "West Sumatera" regions. And... the earthquake 2 days ago made the wireless connection at my campus in the trouble. That's why I'm late to update this blog. Too bad!
source
     Another problem. Cobie-kun's (My phone's name) Camera was error since last week! Guess what? I could not take photos as usual. I could not take nature photos, my self photos, or random thing photos or my self photos or... my self photos! Urrgghhh... as a narcissistic-man, could not taking self portrait made me really sick! Too Bad! Too Bad! :))

Now, I try to save my money as much as I can.
I wish I could buy a new camera this month.
Wish me luck, everyone!
See you in the next post!
