My laboring days of not-so-hard-enough work in third term finally paid off with a valuable holiday. I'm in Batam now and the days which i spend here are fantastic. I have been here for two weeks and will be for the next two weeks. I learn new lessons every single day!!!
Funnily enough, eventually I found out that this so-called holiday doesn't feel like a real holiday. Well it just feel like I have much leisure time to do things that I used to want to do but I just couldn't because of time's limitation.
I've got like tons of stuff to do, mostly having to do with my new hobby: cooking and start learning to play guitar.
I actually cook. Well, the right one is HELP my aunty when she cooked. She is very good in cooking, so she already covered up every foods. I just help her to peel onions or something. I don't even think to cook by myself. Jadi di batam ini pembantu tante gw kan seumuran sm gw. Dia jg ga jago2 amat masak, tp jago ngulek. Nah berbekal kejagoan ngulek dia yg udah tingkat dewa dan sedikit pengetahuan gw ttg cara ngupas bumbu2 dapur yg bener, kita nekat aja deh ngobrak ngabrik buku2 resep tante gw dan dgn sotoynya nawarin adek sepupu gw yg masih kecil, (priskila) mau dimasakin apa. Pas priskila liat bukunya, langsung lah dia cr yg lucu2 gambarnya. She wanted us to cook her sandwich!! Sandwich doang mah gampil. Jadi, enak, dia suka. Besoknya kita makin norak lagi. Bikin masakan yg agak tingkat dewa: sambel kering kentang tempe, perkedel soun, sayur oyong tahu, spagethi, pepes tahu udang, sayur kcg panjang tempe dan semuanya sukses, pujian pun berlimpah ruah!! hahahaha emang bener gw kagak bs ngulek, tp gw bisa baca dan ngikutin resep dgn baik dan benar. Emang bener gw di malang cuma ngupas bawang, tp itu kan krn tante gw uda bs ngecover smua masakan. Di batam gw explore bakat masak gw, dan ternyata ga ancur2 bgt, asal ada asisten buat ngulek aja :p Besok kita mau bikin sayur bayem telur puyuh sama kailan tofu. Bulan depan ganti menu ah jd masakan eropa smua. Sadaaaaaaaaap!
Oh iya, KHS was announced two weeks ago and well I just feel satisfied with the result, but obviously not that happy. 3.94 is very good GPA for me, but i just feel regret, kenapa gw ga dpt 4 aja... hahahaha ga deng. Gw nyesel krn pas tau score itu, gw langsung announce di status fb & twitter. haha norak abs emang dan baru sekarang gw menyadari kalo I exaggerated all the things! Gimana dong yaa kan seneng.. Tapi lebay ah. Tapi kan pamernya cuma mau ke ussi aja perihal hasil semester 2 kmrn. Tapi ga penting tau. Tapi tapi tapi it exactly is a grace, not my power! Sorry for not being good in attitude, people :(
Another thing I learn during holiday is how to play guitar. Yeah! I always wish to have good skill in playing guitar and now I have an opportunity to take guitar course during holiday. And yes, I am in! Berhubung selama di batam kerjaan gw cuma masak, siangnya gw menawarkan diri buat dimasukin les gitar dan setujulah si tante. Gw kira mau dilesin di tempat les musik pada umumnya lah yaa, you know lah yg punya produk motor sm alat musik itu hehe.. Tapi ternyata dimasukin ke tempat les keyboardnya priskila. It is called impArt, it's like a Gospel music course. And I am so glad to join them. Karena tujuan awal gw pingin bs main gitar adalah buat Tuhan. Sounds too religious? That's me! Pengen jadi pelayan altar pas persekutuan atau doa malem. Dan di impArt lah yg paling pas. Besides the songs, which I learned, are praise and worship songs, little thing during the course (like praying before and after course, close relationship between trainer and trainee) make me very comfortable to be there :D The thing is, kak Jo (my trainer) taught me about playing Romance D'amor, a song which I love the most when it is played by guitar. Masih Romance D'amor yg paling simple sih, tp sumpah excitednya ga ketulungan :p I hope these 8 of meetings can make me know well the basic about playing guitar and the rest is my responsibility to learn it deeper. Wuenaaaaaak!!
Valuable enough, right? The point is I WILL NOT overspend in this holiday ay ay ay!
