Being Freed from Cage (and Doesn’t Like It)

Hello! It’s July already and my timeline is literally full of people talking about Game of Thrones S07. So fed up with it—not because I’m that “hey I don’t watch GoT, you basic” kind of snobs, but because I’ve only watched the first two seasons I couldn’t keep up with the updates. LOL. For now let’s…

[Writing Challenge] #3: 10-Things-that-Make-Me-Happy List.

As I start this blog post, a deep feeling echoes: all these twenty years, have I ever been happy? To be frank, listing ten things that make me happy is not as easy as I thought it would be. Despite the temptation to write a long ass predicament about that aformentioned thought, I’m going to…

[Writing Challenge] #2: Welcome to My Playlist

Put your music player on shuffle. Write about the first five songs that play and what your initial thought is. Before we go any further, please hold back your “why the fuck do you download a song you don’t listen to” question whenever you feel like it. よろしくおねがいします. So, welcome on board! Initial thought: “Ah, this song!! It’s been…

[Writing Challenge] #1: The Place I’d Like to Move to/Visit.

The first thing that ping my brain when I read the prompt is the land of the rising sun, 日本. The idea of visiting, or even moving to Japan has enchanted me ever since. I am very aware that this part is going to be ridiculous, but talking about Japan is not complete without talking about…

Now I’ve stopped watering the dead flowers

I am so fed up with my current uni life. Everything becomes a mess because of things called group projects. As far as I know, group projects are actually meant to lessen the amount of works to do and to ease the burden. On the contrary, what really happens to me is the exact opposite….

Never Been Your Fault; It’s Mine

This afternoon I realized my misjudgement: you did not change. You are still you, the endearing guy who never ceases to spread the benignity. As I realized that, I felt so bad for accusing you. Little did I know that I was the wicked one. Have always been, will always be. Here I write something for you, if you care enough to read….

#BookReview Flowers for Algernon [A Novelette] by Daniel Keyes

One year ago when I was still an avid reader of YA/romance fictions, a friend of mine recommended a book titled Flowers for Algernon. When I read the title, I was excited because I thought it was a book about love story or something like that. So I typed ‘Flowers for Algernon’ on Google search tab; turned…

Racauan Sang Pesakit

Sejak kecil aku bukan seseorang yang sepenuhnya sehat. Ketika teman-teman seusiaku menghabiskan sebagian besar masa kecilnya di tempat rekreasi—Dufan, Taman Safari, you name it, aku lebih sering menghabiskan waktu menunggu giliran bertemu dokter di rumah sakit. Radang tenggorokan adalah sahabat karib yang tak pernah absen bertamu setiap pergantian bulan. Salah makan sedikiiit saja berujung pada dua sampai tiga hari…

Brabbeltaal #009

The hopeless romantic side of me was grateful for the 104 degrees fever during the last three days; for the high temperature had burnt away all the thought of him.
