  • Одна история...
«Сын у меня месяц назад привёл домой девушку.
— Мама, это моя Зойка. Мы любим друг друга и будем жить вместе.
А я что, против что ли? Как любая мать, я желаю счастья своему ребёнку. Хотят жить вместе — пусть живут.
— Конечно, сыночек. Вы пока идите на кухню. А я вещи твои соберу.
— В смысле — вещи соберешь? — уставился на меня сын.
Да, иногда мне кажется, что сын умом явно в отца своего пошёл, пришлось разжевать:
— В прямом. Я сейчас соберу твои вещи и вы идёте жить вместе. Вы ведь этого хотите?
— Хм, мам, понимаешь, дорого снимать, да и не на что — мы с Зоей учимся, ты ведь знаешь. Мы у тебя думали пожить. Нам много не надо — уголок в комнате, мы тебя не стесним, обещаю.
Ага, плавали — знаем. Сама со свекровью жила, десять лет её терпела, пока мы с мужем квартиру не получили. Отношения у нас с матерью мужа, естественно, испортились. Это сейчас они сладко поют
— не стесним. А через месяц-другой полетят в меня тапки: не люблю, гноблю, выживаю невестку. Не надо мне такого счастья. Эх, Зойка, ты ведь даже не представляешь, от какого ада я тебя избавила.
— Нет, сын. Если ты считаешь себя достаточно взрослым, чтобы решить жить с любимой девушкой, будь добр обеспечить вам условия для совместной жизни, будь взрослым до конца: переведись на заочку, найди работу и сними квартиру. Хотя, квартиру не потянешь, наверное. Снимешь комнату — и живите вместе, сколько душе угодно.
— Мама, да ты что?! Жить в коммуналке с чужими людьми? Мы не хотим.
Вот так. То есть, мою квартиру в коммуналку превратить и чужого человека подселить — мы хотим. А сами с чужими людьми — не хотим. Хитренькие какие.
Зоя, Вы ведь испытываете к моему сыну чувства? Хотя, глупый вопрос — вы ведь согласились жить вместе, значит испытываете.
— Да. Я люблю Вашего сына. Очень. — еле слышно пискнуло воздушное создание.
— Слышишь, сын — она тебя любит. А с любимым рай и в шалаше. Правильно я говорю, Зоя?
— Да, правильно. Я и на коммуналку согласна, лишь бы вместе.
— Ну вот, сын, как хорошо всё получается. А уж как тебе девушка твоя за моё отсутствие благодарна будет, словами не передать. Давайте, взрослые, устраивайте свою жизнь. Не переживай, не поедете вы в комнату...⏩листаем карусель⏩

  • Atasan vs Yang di atas

Sebenarnya ini bisa diversuskan tidak sih..?
Dari segi mana pun Tuhan sama manusia memang tidak bisa dibandingkan, ini sudah difirmanlan Allah lewat surat Al Ikhlas ayat 4 yang artinya "Dan tidak ada satu pun yang setara dengan Dia". Di sini saya memang tidak mau membandingkan Tuhan dengan manusia, tapi membandingkan perlakuan manusia terhadap atasannya dan juga terhadap Tuhannya.

Pada kenyataannya, walaupun tidak semua, manusia cendrung lebih takut kepada atasan dibanding Tuhan.
Contoh simpel saja ketika mendengar suara azan, ada sebagian yang bergegas memenuhi panggilan itu, tetapi ada juga sebagian besar yang cuek.
Kerja jalan terus, makan ga berhenti, yang tidur makin tarik selimut.

Berbeda ketika yang memanggil itu atasan, pasti langsung bergegas, apapun yang sedang dikerjakan dihentikan dulu.
Yang sedang tidur pun ketika pak bos menelpon tengah malam tetap dijawab dengan suara yang dibikin senatural mungkin seperti tidak sedang baru terjaga.

Lain lagi adab ketika bertemu, jika yang akan ditemui bos, otomatis penampilan dibuat serapi mungkin, wangi, sopan, pokoknya performa kita tidak boleh kelihatan jelek.
Nah giliran menemui Allah, pakaian seadanya, mukena sudah butut padahal beli baju mampu 3 stel tiap bulan.

Ketika gajian muka berseri-seri, apalagi kalau plus bonus.
Kebaikan si bos di umbar-umbar, padahal itu kan hak kita setelah menunaikan kewajiban sebulan penuh, kalaupun dapat bonus juga karena kerja kita bagus, coba kalau jelek tidak bakal dapat bonus, jadi bukan karena kebaikan atasan.

Sehari-harinya menghirup oksigen, badan sehat, seluruh indra berfungsi, tapi masih jarang tuh mengingat kebaikan Allah.
Padahal semua itu bukan hak kita, kewajiban apa coba yang sudah kita lakukan sehingga kita berhak dengan nikmat sebanyak itu.
Kalau saja Allah mau hitung-hitungan, satu rakaat sekali nafas, maka seluruh waktu kita mesti hanya untuk shalat, kalau tidak ya terima resiko nafas terhenti.

Jadi masih lebih penting atasan atau Yang Di atas nih..

  • I did this for you...
.
One day, when my big kids are older I no doubt will get the question: 'Mum, why did you and Dad break up.' I've already conjured up the spiel in my mind in preparation for that question... age appropriate of course.
.
My big boys were 1 and 3 when I got away from their Dad. It was the BEST thing I have ever done for my kids. Their Dad and I had a toxic, volatile relationship. Which created horrendous living conditions for the kids and I. Getting away allowed me to detox my mind of all of the negativity that had become ingrained in it, it allowed me to find myself again and set me free... which in turn gave my kids a happy and healthy home life.
.
I know they sometimes struggle with living in two homes, half the time and sometimes they miss the other parent. However, this way is so much better than trying to 'stick it out.' .
What's something that you do for your kids that they may not understand just yet?

  • Mie Gomak

Ini merupakan makanan khas orang Batak Toba, Sumatera Utara, namun tetap menjadi incaran perantau yang sedang berada di tanah orang.
Ya, makanan lezat nan istimewa ini kerap disebut "spaghetti" nya orang Batak. Mie kuning yang direbus lalu dicampur dengan bumbu kuah yang lezat.
Oh iya, jangan lupa bahwa spaghetti istimewa ini juga punya bumbu khusus yang tak dimiliki oleh suku lainnya, bahkan untuk bule2 Eropa sana!
Namanya bumbu Andaliman. Salah satu rempah yang sangat terkenal dan hanya ada di tanah Batak, Sumatera Utara. Kalaupun ada di kota2 lain di Indonesia, pasti akan sangat sulit mencarinya! Termasuk di Kota Solo ini, saya sangat beruntung dapat menikmati sajian istimewa yang dimasak oleh salah satu rekan gereja. Dengan campuran cabai rawit dan merah yang pas, bertambah pulalah kenikmatan yang tiada tara. Uhmmm, rasanya luarrr biasaa. Andalimannya bergetarrr di bibir (cara baca 'e' harap dikeraskan seperti logat orang Medan ya 😂)
Nah, tentu saja Mie Gomak ini sangat berbeda rasanya dengan Mie dokdok yang ada di Pulau Jawa. Begitu pun dengan spaghetti yang kita kenal di pasaran. Ada ciri khas andaliman yang sangattt sulit dideskripsikan dengan kata-kata.

Lalu, bagaimana dengan masakan khas Mie di Kotamu? Ayo berbagi kisah 😉 .

  • An interesting thing happens when you shout 'YES!' to the Universe.

It fucking delivers.

This year, my intentions were to incorporate more joy into my life, write, and travel.

What came in once I had set those intentions? An artist residency in Skopje, Macedonia.

TBH, I had completely forgotten I was accepted into the program (back in Aug. 2018 but deferred it until May 2019). And imagine my surprise when I received an email asking me to confirm my attendance. I was blown away. Here was an opportunity to a). travel, b). write completely undisturbed, and c). add more joy into my life!

I'm so grateful for this opportunity and know that it'll only serve me in my highest good in the end. I'm so excited to meet all the other artists in the program, get to know some locals, learn the language, and create a project that'll impact the community overall.

May can't come soon enough!

Are you saying 'YES!' to the Universe? If not, why not? Believe me, you'll create magic when you do. ✨

  • Received it today. Guess that even China has already celebrated New Year, but this one is not about dates, it's about miracles.
Christmas is where miracles dwell, or this is what we all crave to believe in at the bottom of our hearts.
Didn't want to have children for years. The idea had frightened me until I turned 25. And then it dawned at me, 'I'm ready'. They say it happens with a woman when she meets her true love. So it happened with me. And blessed are those whose love shares their dreams. I wish I were among them. 
This Christmas I held my breath for another one time. I was wandering in labirynths of countless 'maybe', thinking probable scenarios over and over again.
That is a special feeling of being on the brink of becoming something more than what you are.
Beware: your dreams do come true, but when you least expect it.

  • So another dream of mine has now manifested itself into reality.
.
I am now officially a published author.
.
I was kindly  approached by Lyn Thurman about taking part in her book the  Monday Morning Soul Missives. It is  now available now on Amazon (and to pre-order for Kindle/ebooks). .
I have wrote a mini version of my life story in there and also how my Monday mornings used to be like.
.
So, if you wake up on a Monday morning feeling dread at the start of the week, get this book.  You'll find hope, inspiration and throughout, the realisation that however bad things may be, life is worth living (even on Mondays). .
There is a Kindle/ebook version too that's available for pre-order (due out 1st March). But if you buy the print version on Amazon, the Kindle version should be free.
.
I am still in the process of working with Lyn about getting my full life story published so watch this space.
