“akhirnya semua akan tiba
pada suatu hari yang biasa
pada suatu ketika yang telah lama kita ketahui
apakah kau masih berbicara selembut dahulu?
memintaku minum susu dan tidur yang lelap?
sambil membenarkan letak leher kemejaku”
apakah kau masih akan berkata, kudengar derap jantungmu. kita begitu berbeda dalam semua
kecuali dalam cinta

4 months ago, i climbed Pangrango mountain with Novi Kurniawan, Diaz, Rangga Rifa’i, Fitra and Bhagas. We departed from jakarta Friday Night, and we arrived at Saturday morning, we started to climb around 8 am.

Ready to climb

firstly it’s not hard for me but after 4 hours i felt so tired, actually in the first plan we went to top of mountain directly but some members’s energy was not good enough to continue expedition. So we broke in kandang badak and we planned to continue expedition in the morning. After we felt good, we continued the expedition. On the way, we met another team who had same destination, so we walked together. Actually another team gave us some motivation because they’re strong so we felt “don’t want to slow down”. Finally around 5 am we arrived at mandalawangi, so beautiful and peaceful

Mandalawangi

We are

Smile 🙂

Sunday afternoon, we went back to Jakarta. One lesson that i got from this expedition

When you tired and your position’s in the middle of the mountain, you only have 2 choice, go forward or go back. If you keep quiet, you’ll “die”. So take decision soon 

NB about Pangrango :
1. severe terrain, so you must be in good condition.
2. Long journey to the top of mountain : around 12 hours

(kabut tipis pun turun pelan-pelan di lembah kasih, lembah mendala wangi
kau dan aku tegak berdiri, melihat hutan-hutan yang menjadi suram
meresapi belaian angin yang menjadi dingin)
“apakah kau masih membelaiku semesra dahulu
ketika ku dekap kau, dekaplah lebih mesra, lebih dekat”
“apakah kau masih akan berkata, kudengar derap jantungmu. kita begitu berbeda dalam semua
kecuali dalam cinta?”
