Experience dating with ICE AGE in Dufan

“World is too small for the two of us. Time is so fast for the two of us. Everything seems so beautiful for the two of us.”

Perhaps it becomes so common metaphor for couple. All couple, whoever they are, what tribe, what nationality, what religion, whatever do you want to say, they will feel the same if they are in the deep feeling of love. Everyday becomes so happy, every time always want to be together, all the things become so beautiful.

I am not going to make poetry or some new metaphor here. I just wanna share any experiences about dating things in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta. Nowadays, dating things become so flat but fancy in Jakarta. There are so many good cafe and resto, many cinemas, many shopping mall that will pamper your needs of entertainment and fun lifestyle. But, it is already too mainstream in here, in Jakarta. Every weekend you can see so many couple walk, holding hand and smiling in shopping mall, in cinema, and enjoy fancy dining or lunch in luxury place or just fancy places. We will easily find those places in seconds in Jakarta.

Getting bored and want to experience new style of dating? Well, try to visit your childhood place, amusement park, Dufan!! Yup, Dufan!! Do you still remember about your childhood, when you went to Dufan with your parents and siblings? Enjoy every attraction in there and laughing so happily or crying so loudly?

Haha!!! Try to experience that feeling again with your boyfriend or girlfriend? Or perhaps for you newlywed, it is also fun to give a little spark in your life. >o<  Perhaps many people will say you are alay (it is a term for those youths who always going around in group, so noisy, and can be found in so many public places, especially the cheap places in Jakarta) because nowadays Dufan is full with alay.

No need to worried about that!! Even though you will still fin many alay there, but, i will let you know, it is kinda entertainment thing for you, life entertainment!! LOL!! Ok, stop about this alay topics. Continue with Dufan. Don’t you know, Dufan has changed a bit. Now, you can try to compare Dufan with Universal in Singapore, wait, not at all, just one attraction. Haha!! Yup, there is one new attraction, ICE AGE!! But, you have to be prepared too. Before enjoying this attraction, you have to follow the queue until at least 2 or 3 hours. Because even though i have arrived there from 11.30 and the Ice Age attraction is opened at 13.00, but the queue has reached the 2 hours waiting spot. OMG!! Could you imagine???? Really, Indonesian people, especially Jakartan knows to make the queue so long for new favorite place. Hilarious, isn’t it?

Well, The concept of Ice Age is almost similar with so many attraction in Universal, you have to ride a boat to walk through the whole of ice age attraction. But, do not think that it is similar with Istana Boneka (Doll Palace), because it is completely different. You will feel totally like in Ice Age era, so cold, you will shiver a lot there. and, not stopping only there, suddenly they will make you startled with the water spray, with the sudden move like going up up going down in fast speed, and get wet with water splash. And could you imagine, getting wet in the cold ice temperature? Yes!! Gorgeous!! You will feel the tiring of 3 hours queue is totally paid. It is the best attraction in Dufan now.

Wait, it is not finished here, LOL, in Ice Age area, there are 2 attraction that you can choose. First is the one that i told, the second is the shaking boat like Kora-Kora. You can choose which one is your preference. But, my suggestion is the first one, because it makes you feel like in Universal Studio, and especially for couple, you can have a reason to hug your boyfriend or girlfriend because of cold!! HAHHAAH!!!

I apologize i cannot really take many pictures about Ice Age in Dufan. But you can find it in Uncle Google. LOL!!

Enjoy your experience in Ice Age soon!! I bet you it is FUN!!!

Dear Universe,

I write this, not in purpose to complain or be mad with what i have got. I write this, because I have no choice anymore. Life is so good to me. There are so many choices that You have given to me.

I know there are many blessing that You give to me, to us, human, the people who life in the Universe. You give us the nature, flowers, animals, trees, water, sunshine, air. You give so many for us.

I, people, we, as human, we did the right and wrong things. We think,  we choose, we decide, and we make the action. All the things have the good and bad impacts. Whatever we did, we have to responsible for the things that follow it. As a human, i make lots of mistakes. As a human, i choose lots of wrong decisions. As a human i walk on the winding paths.

I have to face every single thing temptation, obstacle, and all of exam of the life. I did wrong, again, and again. I apologize, again, and again. I retry, again, and again. I always try to hear Your whisper, the Universe, the owner of this life. I, I don’t want to fall again and again. I don’t want to fail again and again. I don’t want to be sick every time I made a wrong decision.

Dear Universe,

Every single mistake that I made, It hurts you. Every single wrong decision that I made, It makes you cry. Every time I think of that, I know that I am the one that always hurt you.

I have tried to fix everything. I know, You are the one who gives everything to me. I know, You are the most aggrieved by every mistakes that I did.

Dear Universe,

This is my silent regrets for everything that I have done.

Sincerely,

Little Green Frog

The Second Chance

 

I have given a chance to trust you, but i missed it..

I have given a chance to hold you, but i ignored it..

I have given a chance to stand beside you, but i went away..

 

There is a time when i feel empty..

There is a time when i dream of you..

There is a time when every single thing remind me of you..

There is a time when i miss you so much..

 

I know it is my fault..

I know i did wrong in past..

I know i have disappointed you..

I know every thing has been changed now..

 

Suddenly, it comes..

The second chance for me..

I try to grab it..

I try to have it..

I try to use it..

 

but,

Every thing is not as easy as before..

The universe seems want to punish me..

There are so many temptations coming..

There are so many obstacles facing..

 

I have struggled to achieve the best..

I have sacrificed for  getting the best..

 

Is it what the universe wants from me?

Struggling, Sacrifice, Make Efforts??

 

What should i do now?

I made lots of mistakes in my past..

I chose the wrong path and failed..

 

I apologize for everything..

I don’t expect the second chance..

What i want is simple, don’t punish me like the universe did..

Give me your forgiveness and i’ll let you go..

 

The second chance, does it still exist for me?

 

Married or Not

It is a nice story that i found.. I want to share it because it is a good and very touching story..

【 Marriage 】
When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes..

Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?

I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn’t talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn’t love her anymore. I just pitied her!

With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn’t have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane. When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.

In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn’t want anything from me, but needed a month’s notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month’s time and she didn’t want to disrupt him with our broken marriage.

This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day. She requested that every day for the month’s duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request.

I told Jane about my wife’s divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully.

My wife and I hadn’t had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don’t tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.

On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn’t looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.

On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me. On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn’t tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.

She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.

Suddenly it hit me… she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.

Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it’s time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day.

But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn’t noticed that our life lacked intimacy. I drove to office…. jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind…I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore.

She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won’t divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn’t value the details of our lives, not because we didn’t love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart. Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away. At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I’ll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.

That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed – dead. My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push through with the divorce.
— At least, in the eyes of our son — I’m a loving husband…

The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves.

So find time to be your spouse’s friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage!

If you don’t share this, nothing will happen to you.

If you do, you just might save a marriage. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.. .

You can’t always get what you want!!!

I have a dream..

I have a lot of wants..

I have so many expectations..

 

I try my best to achieve them..

I do a huge effort to make them come true..

I sacrifice a lot to get everything in my hands…

 

But,

Sometimes there are God’s wills..

Sometimes there are choices..

Sometimes there are ego that will hamper everything..

Sometimes there are many reasons that make it is so hard to reach that dreams..

 

The point is!!!

We cannot always get what we want!!!

Trust me!! It happens in everyone’s life!!!

Do not expect too much!!

God will give the best one!!

The one and only that will make us amaze Him and His bless..

 

So,

don’t let yourself down too deep!!

don’t let yourself cry too long!!

don’t let yourself  shatter to pieces!!

 

Remember!!

There is a big plan from God only for you!!

There is an unexpected gifts from God only for you!!

There is a secret that you will know in God’s time!!

 

So, be brave, folks!!

Keep asking the best from God!!

Face everything smartly!!

And wait for His time!!

 

Because, you cannot always get what you want,

But, someday, you will realize that you have got what you need..

 

L.O.V.E

Do you believe about love?

Do you believe about pure friendship between man and woman?

Or, do you believe about true love?

Well, love is wonderful…

Love is beautiful…

Love is also powerful..

We can do anything because of  L.O.V.E

but,

Love is painful..

Love is all about courage..

Love is all about sacrifice..

Love is all about choice…

Love is all about loyalty…

It won’t be love when you don’t have courage..

It is not love when you don’t want to sacrify..

It is absolutely not love when you cannot choose to be loyal..

Love is..

When two heart become one..

Love is..

When two people have trust each other..

Love is..

When you throw away your ego..

Love is..

L.O.V.E
