You said you love me. There’s no other but me. You lied!
You’re in love with yourself, and you don’t even care about me.
Those words above was really expressed by me, when I and my ex had a fight. I said it several times, since the problem we faced was always the same: taking me for granted.
Oh it’s a crazy long story, I’ll just cut the chase: he loves himself too much that I had no space in…
Okay, so we’ve learned the first reason why I fell in love with my boyfriend D. Simple: he was a good friend in one of my worst time. He gave me necessary and logical advices of what’s right and what’s not.
Secondly… when I finally, officially, divorced, it actually made D sad. He kept asking, isn’t there another way? Is it really that terrible that the two of us can’t fix it? Such questions were…
Despite of some people’s negative opinions toward my life, there are legit reasons why I fell in love with my boyfriend, D.
First of all, he might not like me calling him as a boyfriend for it sounds “so teenagers”–well, it sorta does indeed, since I am now 36 and he’s 41. *LOL* He liked to consider us as soulmates. So, It’s not a simple relationship.
Soulmates are two people who share mutual…
Few days ago, my boyfriend phoned me, specially to discuss about how my look have changed. He said, the first time he met me, I didn’t look too attractive, even for him. I looked gloomy and it darkened my skin.
That’s why, it’s kind of hard for him to “read” me, in order to get to know me better. I mean, sure I naturally look *ahem* pretty, but gloomy. I looked stress and unhappy, even though I smiled and laugh all the time. Hmm.. Let’s see. Did I?
Here below is the pic of me when I’m on duty to Papua Barat (West Papua). Well, you can’t ignore the sun shine there is more “vicious” than Jakarta, even though the atmosphere is a lot cleaner than Jakarta.
I looked fine, I think. Hahaha.. Here was the pic of me and my colleague Ari Paputungan (Training Specialist) with the children of Kampung Udopi, Manokwari Barat District, Kabupaten Manokwari, Papua Barat.
I think I looked happy. I WAS. I felt so excited being assigned to this land. The beautiful black pearl of Indonesian archipelago, the eastern of our beloved motherland. Manokwari is the town where my late grandparents lived during 1975-1995 (the day they died). My uncle and aunt are still living there though. Some lived in Jayapura (Papua province).
It’s been 20 years since my Oma (granny) left the land, gotten ill, passed away, and buried in Bandung (her hometown). So, visiting this land is like a reenactment of the steps of Oma. A dream come true! Not all of her grandchildren can visit this town since the flight cost here is incredibly expensive. My Oma, named Jamningsih Jazir, was the head of magistrate of Manokwari in 70’s era. There, she built a school (institute) of law, because she believed Irian—the former name of Papua—needs one.
Anyway, that’s the pic of me when I was in Papua. Do I really look that “dark”??
Now, below is the pic when I’m in Makassar. After meeting my boyfriend. Uh-huh, yeah, he’s originally of Makassar ethnic. People of Makassar are famous with their determination, high etiquette, tough character, and most of all SIRI’. It means pudency and it’s associated with their personal/family reputation. In short, they’re honorable people with respectable culture.
Anyways! Here is the pic of me when, and after, visiting Makassar:
Ooohhh.. Look at that! I think my boyfriend was right.
But wait.. Perhaps there’s a difference in lighting and angle? Let’s upload another pic…
The last pic was taken at a friend’s house and its lighting was not so bright, and yet my face did look fresh and clean. I’m glowing.. Wow..
And you know what, it was my boyfriend who made me glow. ^_^
How?? Just guess. hehehe..
Ooooh.. I love how his dimples (!!) show every time he sings. And this song, I LOVE! ^_^
One of the sexiest songs I ever heard.
“Locked Out Of Heaven”
One, two, one, two, three | Oh, yeah, yeah, Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, | Ooh! | Oh, yeah, yeah, Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah | Ooh! || Never had much faith in love or miracles | Ooh! |…
