Pengumuman UMPTN, SPMB kami…

Agustus 1994

“Uni diterima..uni diterima.. Uni diterima di kedokteran UI” Ajo gadang lari-lari masuk rumah sambil membawa koran yang dibelinya. Nama dan nomer itu sudah dilingkari olehnya…

“Mana…mana…” Ayah Ibu jadi ikutan ribut… “Mana… ga keliatan..!!!”

Huruf di Koran begitu kecil untuk mata orangtua… belum lagi.. melihatnya sambil berlinang air mata…

Jadi oleh Ayah, koran itu difotokopi dan diperbesar..  lalu ? dikirim lewat pos ke kakek nenek di padang dan di lampung… kata ayah di kampung mereka bawa-bawa fotocopi koran itu, jadi kalau ditanya orang-orang.. mereka akan bilang “cucu den nak jadi doto (cucu saya akan jadi dokter).

Agustus 1996

“Iga diterima Yah” .. Ajo gadang masuk rumah dengan percaya dirinya…

Yang ada.. Ayah malah nanya “mana korannyaaaaa?????”

Agustus 2000

Di Stasiun Gambir, sambil menunggu adik ipar yang tiba subuh di Gambir, Ayah melihat orang sedang membaca Koran “maap pak, boleh pinjam korannya ?, hari ini pengumuman ujian anak saya” orang itu malah bilang “oooo iya pak.. siapa namanya ?” lalu mereka berdua malah sibuk mencari nama Ajo “ada Pak.. ini ada nama anak Bapak”.

Sampai Rumah “Mizu mana…mizu mana…” langsung dipeluk dan diangkat ayah…

Agustus 2002

Tengah malam udah ga bisa tidur…

Telepon bunyi interlokal dari Bandung, siapa lagi kalau bukan Ajo Gadang..“Ayah, Mira diterima di Bandung”. Ayah segera naik ke lantai 2 “memeluk sambil bilang “Alhamdulillah..anak ayah jadi dokter lagi”

Agustus 2005

Kata Ibu “diterima lah Ti… ibu tadi siang berdoa… pas mengusap wajah muncul “Farmasi ITB”.

Percaya ga percaya….

Malam itu.. kembali menunggu internet… dengan hasil…“diterima”.

Agustus 2010

“Anak siapa dulu… Anak Ayah.. Anak Ayah…”

“Orangtua sering tidak terwujudkan impiannya..karena terlalu sibuk menyiapkan impian anak-anaknya…”

teriring doa semoga ketika impian kami (anak-anaknya) terwujudkan..pada saat  itu.. impian kedua orangtua kami telah terwujud pula…

Teringat masa kecilku… Kau peluk dan kau manja….. Kau tuturkan segala mimipi-mimpi serta harapanmu… Kau ingin ku menjadi yang terbaik…”

“Ku trus berjanji, takkan khianati pintamu.. kan ku buktikan.. ku mampu penuhi mau mu… Tuk wujudkan.. segala yang terlewati..” –Yang terbaik –Ada Band- Gita Gutawa-

my School holiday

July.. is the month for school holiday,

School holiday,

Nowadays, I lives in Bandung, how many traffic jam during weekdays..  Aaah this week is school holiday, so mostly from outer town such as Jakarta. So some thought crossed my mind “was the parents also took a holiday when their children got school holiday ?”

When I did recall my school holiday, during my elementary school..

These was my school holiday..

06.30 Early in the morning… “Bye..bye Mom, I’m going with Dad, to his Office, so no need for the breakfast” –almost everyday, I always ate my mom’s cook for breakfast.

Dad : “do you want toast bread  with peanut butter jam, at my office canteen?”

Me : “Sure do, Dad” –my chances for not eating rice like always..!!!-

07.30

Dad : “wait here, I have to report that I’m already here”

-later I know after 20 years working… my dad never been late to work, He even elected as best employee for never been late-

Dad : “let’s go to the rooftop.. you can see Jakarta from 33th floor”

-and I thought a view is a must from a place you call puncak, or hotel room, or sky observation , but

With my Dad, I see from the rooftop of his office, where you can find antenna and lots of cable

08.00 – 09.30 : I was left alone.. my Dad go to work.

09.30

Dad : “the Mall just open, you can play there, when lunch time we’ll meet at the loby again”

Me : “No thanks Dad, I just wanna go to the book store, I’ll just read there”

12.15

Dad : “I waited you at the lobby .. yet you are still here, let’s go for lunch”

Me : “aaa.. sorry dad, didn’t notice the time”.

13.00 – 16.30 : I was left alone again, so I continue waiting for my Dad, at the book store.

16.30 :

Dad : “let’s go home, Are you happy today ?”

Me : “ofcourse Dad, I can eat my peanut butter toast bread, read a lot, got a chance to see from rooftop”

Tomorrow morning…

We did it again…

When I was a high school student, I didn’t go from early morning…

Sometimes my Dad went home during breaklunch, than I go with him to his office (the same office when I was still an elementary student).

Dad : “where do you want to go ?”

Me : “still the book store, Dad”

15.00

Dad : “here’s the shopping list from your mom, go to the Supermarket and buy our monthly need”

Me : “Okay, Dad”

18.00

Me : “Mom, here’s the groceries…”

My school holidays, didn’t mean my father’s holidays…

I just simply accompanied my Dad to his office.

Even my Dad office was a great holidays place for me

Father can change an ordinary place into adventure place…

-father can change a boring trip from home to office, into a nice adventure walk
