He makes me laugh.

He sees me like there's no one else.

He stands by me.

Despite of all our differences, he chooses me.


Engagement Day

Dear Brainwave,

Thank you for coming back.
Thank you for accepting everything about me even when you don't feel like it.
Thank you for making me believe that I'm deserved to be loved.
Thank you for not giving up on me.
Thank you for willing to be with me for the rest of your life.


Marriage is

Let’s admit it. When you are in early 30, settled, and you are still single and alone, it probably means something is wrong with you.

People around you will rise one and only question: when will you get married?

As if getting married is as easy as changing songs on our iPod.


I, myself, think that getting married is a big thing. There are many things we should consider before we decide to do it. It’s not a cheap thing. It’s not only about two people love each other living together. No. It’s not only about I love you and you love me so let’s do it. No.

It needs long term commitment. It takes a hundred years responsibility, patience, sincerity, hardworking and forever and ever compromise.

But it doesn’t mean that marriage is scary and horrifying. No. So many friends of mine finally found their meaning of life after they have family to take care of, husband and children to raise. Marriage is the peak of man and woman relationship. Once they reach the peak, there would be so much hurricane they have to survive. If they don’t, they will fall apart.

The key is sticking together.

P.S: I found this note in my folder, I can’t believe I wrote this. I can’t believe I sounded so expert in this thing while I’m not married, yet.



Apa yang membuat suatu hubungan menjadi kuat melawan waktu? Menurutmu?
Apa yang membuat misalnya Papi dan Mami sanggup menjalani pernikahan puluhan tahun hingga sekarang.
Apakah karena cinta?
Apakah karena komitmen?
Atau apa karena hal-hal lainnya?

Lalu apakah karena suatu hubungan tidak memiliki hal-hal diatas, maka hubungan tersebut akan berakhir?



I remember that one of my considerations not to choose him was about his work. I know him. I know that he loves working and I feel that I can't accept his work hour which is sometimes pass midnight or maybe until 2 am.

But now that I have committed to him, I care about him so I feel sorry. I'm worried about his overwork will affect to his health. He was complaining that he's got headache and the best thing I can do was nothing. I feel bad.

I'm looking forward to the nights I can caress his head every time he's home and needs my hand. I'm waiting to the days I can take care of him and remind him about how important he is to me so he must pay attention to himself.

Now that we are miles apart. I hope our heart is near.
