[EF#28] The Otang

Good day good people,

What is Otang? Is it an animal? a thing? a name of new found planet?

When I tried to search in Google, I found it was a brand of a board’s wheel. But, this Otang is different from it. Otang is a word that only knew by my family. It is a secret word and now that word is not a secret again. Why it can be a secret? Is it such a spell? I hate to admit, but yes. It is a magic spell that can throw me back to the past time, many years ago when I was a little girl.

I didn’t remember exactly, how that word can be found. I was about 4 or 5 years old at that time when I learn to sing a song. But, this little girl was not like the other cute girl that sang “Twinkle-twinkle little star”, “Pelangi-pelangi” and another kid song. This little girl sang a bit hard and thoughtful song of Iwan Fals : Bongkar!

It is not a surprise since my father is a big fan of Iwan Fals. So my childhood’s songs are the full collection from Iwan Fals’s song album. So, when my little ears heard the song, and my mouth repeated it, instead of saying “Bongkar”, I said “Otang”. So the song that actually:

“O-o-ya o-ya o ya Bongkar, O o ya o ya o ya Bongkar”

became :

“O-o-ya o ya o ya Otang.. O-o-ya-o-ya-o ya Otang”

That was the true meaning of Otang.

“I Wanna Run”

here.. I come again to run away.. from some human complicated problems, from heavy minds, from the darkest slope of human heart.. I wanna run, I wanna run, I wanna run..


Good evening good people 🙂

I thought that i would be productive in my blog since this holidays, but ya. I can say that I’m still productive in my medical blog and of course in my house, like sweep the floor, clean the house and any home task but not cooking. Haha.

Oh ya, a few days ago my father found this blog. Maybe He read this too. (say hello to Dad). So, I think I should write carefully haha. He will criticizes if there are any mistakes in my grammar. The most important thing is..(maybe the most dangerous) I can’t write any personal topic here. So, should I move on and make another unknown blog? Seriously. Hahaha.

Anyway, he said to me, “How about if another people read it?”. It remind me about the consequence of your post in any social media.Ya. Everyone can read it unless you block them. Hm. Should I ask Yahoo how to block your father from reading your blog? Hahaha.

Honestly, thanks to my Dad. At least, my father will be the “forever reader” to my post and maybe the most loyal reader, even I posted unimportant thing, hahaha.

Oya, may I promote my sister? She is a bass guitar player with her band “Young Guns Bali”. I like song “I wanna run” the most. Please enjoy.. 🙂

You can download the song here 🙂

with so much of love,

Saturday Story

“Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.”
Markus Zusak, I Am the Messenger

Terkadang kita terpaku saat melihat bahwa diri kita ‘mungkin’ tidak sebaik, secantik ataupun sepintar yang lain. Hal ini kerap terjadi, bahkan pada diri saya, dulu, hingga akhirnya saya menemukan cerita ini.

Ada sebuah permainan di masa kecil. Permainan batu, kertas dan gunting. Permainan ini sangat sederhana, jika lawan mengeluarkan gunting dan saya mengeluarkan kertas, maka saya kalah dan dia yang menang. Hal yang sebaliknya akan terjadi bila saat saya mengeluarkan kertas dan lawan mengeluarkan batu, maka sayalah pemenangnya. Begitu pula saya akan menang bila saat lawan mengeluarkan gunting dan saya mengeluarkan batu.

Peraturannya sederhana : batu akan kalah dari kertas, kertas akan kalah dari gunting dan gunting akan kalah dari batu.

Tak ada satu yang paling unggul diantara dua yang lainnya. Saat satu unggul dari yang lain, maka ia juga bisa kalah dari yang lain. Saya kagum pada pencipta permainan ini. Ia bisa membuat peraturan yang sederhana tetapi membuat kemungkinan bahwa apapun bisa menang, baik itu si batu, si gunting maupun si kertas.

Tidak ada manusia yang 100% sempurna, masing-masing manusia memiliki kelebihan dan juga kelemahan.

Jadi, mungkin saja saat ini kita memiliki beberapa kelemahan, tetapi Tuhan juga melengkapi kita dengan kelebihan. Mungkin kita tidak secantik atau seganteng yang lain, mungkin tidak sepintar yang lain, mungkin pula kita tidak semampu yang lain dalam ekonomi. Bagaimanapun kita diciptakan, bagaimanapun bentuk kehidupan kita saat ini -yang tidak mampu kita rubah seperti ras, jenis kulit, dan sebagainya)- kita pasti memiliki sesuatu yang lebih dibandingkan yang lainnya. 🙂

Jangan tinggi hati atas kelebihan, tetapi juga jangan berkecil hati atas kekurangan.

Bersyukur atas kehidupan, Tuhan menciptakan kita “sempurna” dalam diri kita sendiri.

Happy weekend to all of the good, beautiful people. “You are worth more than Gold ” 🙂

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh

You were walking on the moon, now you’re feeling low
What they said wasn’t true, you’re beautiful
Sticks and stones break your bones, I know what you’re feeling
Words like those won’t steal your glow, you’re one in a million

This, this is for all the girls, boys all over the world
Whatever you’ve been told, you’re worth more than gold
So hold your head up high, it’s your time to shine
From the inside out it shows, you’re worth more than gold
(Gold gold, you’re gold)
You’re worth more than gold
(Gold gold, you’re gold)

When everybody keeps score, afraid you’re gonna lose
Just ignore they don’t know the real you
All the rain in the sky can’t put out your fire
Of all the stars out tonight, you shine brighter

This, this is for all the girls, boys all over the world
Whatever you’ve been told, you’re worth more than gold
So hold your head up high, it’s your time to shine
From the inside out it shows, you’re worth more than gold
(Gold gold, you’re gold)
You’re worth more than gold
(Gold gold, you’re gold)

So don’t let anybody tell you that you’re not loved
And don’t let anybody tell you that you’re not enough
Yeah there are days that we all feel like we’re messed up
But the truth is that we’re all diamonds in the rough

So don’t be ashamed to wear your crown
You’re a king you’re a queen inside and out
You glow like the moon, you shine like the stars
This is for you, wherever you are

Oh, oh, yeah, yeah, oh, oh,
You’re gold

This, this is for all the girls, boys all over the world
Whatever you’ve been told, you’re worth more than gold
(So hold your head) So hold your head up high,
It’s your time to shine
From the inside out it shows, you’re worth more than gold
(Gold gold, you’re gold)
You’re worth more than gold
(Gold gold you’re gold)

So don’t be ashamed to wear your crown
You’re a king you’re a queen inside and out

How to be a Dragon Master


Good Day Good People,

I just watched “How to Train Your Dragon 2” and that movie was amazed me, not only the story but also the characters, the dubber, the effect, the music, all of them. When I thought it was a fantastic movie, I would look for who was the author of the story. Cressida Cowell was the person who has the root of this imaginative wonderful story and of course, Dean DeBlois who was the writer of the script and director, Bonnie Arnold p.g.a as producer had made this story alive.

This story start with prologue from Hiccup, about the Berk, a viking village after 5 years they have made peace Dragons. On first scene, it is showing a Dragon racing by all of Hiccup friends. Hiccup himself is going on adventure with his best friend, Night Furry-Toothless, to discover some new lands. I love the part when Hiccup is flying with Toothless in the sky full with white cloud, blowing by the wind, oh it make me want to do so.. If I have a dragon :).

Hiccup falls and had a little argue with Toothless about the naughty boy who always jump and fly without Toothless and it dangerous him. Astrid come and see what her boyfriend has done. Ya yaya, as the boy with his beloved and trustworthy girlfriend, Hiccup tell Astrid why he run away from the dragon racing. Hiccup just had a big talk with his father whether Hiccup will be a chief. Still confuse about his passion and his father’s wish, Astrid said to Hiccup

“What are you searching for is not out there Hiccup, it’s in here”

said Astrid appoint to Hiccup’s heart.

Hiccup finally find new land and with Astrid, they meet Son of Eret on the fort encased with enormous green ice formation. Eret blames them for the destruction of the fort and suspect them as the ally of Drago Bludvist. Hiccup and Astrid then back to the Berk, give warning to Stoick, chief of Berk. When hear about Drago Bludvist, Stoick orders to fortify the island and prepare for war. But, as usual, the non-listen-to no one boy, Hiccup refuse to do  a war and want to find Drago to change his mind. Hiccup and Astrid go find Eret in purpose that Eret will lead them to Drago, but Stoick suddenly comes and interrupt. Hiccup, again refuse to return to the Berk and fly with toothless to find Drago Bludvist.

While flying, they are captured by a masked man who also fly with a giant dragon. At first, I think that he is the Drago Bludvist, but famble. The masked person is Hiccup’s mother, Valka. Then, the meeting of mother and son after separated for long time….yah, you know how a woman like me will react. :’) Valka then shows Hiccup to her sanctuary in the safe beautiful land covered with green ice and there lived so many Dragons and the huge one is bewilderbeast white Dragon, Alpha, who protect and command of all the dragons.

Another shot that makes me :”).. Stoick comes and find them. A family gathering :’) and when Stoick ask Valka to become her wife once again.

In the other scene, Astrid and the other riders kidnap Eret to find Drago, but they are also captured by Drago. Drago, with his bewilderbeast hypnotic all of the Berk’s Dragon then go to Valka’s sanctuary. A great battle ensues between white Alpha and Black Alpha-Drago’s bewilderbeast. unfortunately, the black one wins. the night furry was hypnotized and in command to kill Hiccup with its blue plasma fire. Stoick pushed Hiccup, and he get hit by the plasma fire.. The chief of the Berk is gone.

Drago leave them with grief and took the Night furry. Hiccup was so regret of losing his father and his best friend, and such a sailor lose his compass, he doubt his self. but then Valka encourages him.

“You come early into this world, You such a wee thing, so frail, so fragile. I afraid you wouldn’t make it. But your father, he never doubted. He always said that you will be the strongest of them all. and he was right. You have the heart of the chief, and the soul of the dragon, only you can bring our world together. That, is who you are son.”

Inspired by her words and his fathers’ Hiccup decides to return to Berk to stop Drago.

“a chief protect his own”

On this scene, i see how a boy becoming a man 🙂

Hiccup, Valka and the others fly back to Berk with baby dragons, as the babies are such immune to the Alpha’s hypnotist. At Berk, they find that Drago’s Alpha has already attacked the village and taken control of the dragons there. Hiccup fly near the Drago and a influence, brainwashed Toothless while the others  try to distract the Alpha.

Drago orders Alpha to make Toothless attacked Hiccup, but Hiccup succeeds in disenchanting Toothless and make Toothless conscious from hypnotist. Drago then orders the Alpha to attack them. The Alpha blast the green ice to Hiccup but Toothless protect him. Hiccup and Toothless covered with ice, at first I thought the they were died, but then, suddenly Toothless reveal the blue plasma in its body and blast the ice. Toothless challenging the Alpha, attack the Alpha until the bewilderbeast loss its control to the other dragon. The other dragons help Toothless and attack bewilderbeast until it broke its left tusk. Drago was defeated and with his Alpha retreat in the ocean.

The vikings celebrate victory and… Hiccup, finally become the chieftain of Berk. The film ends with Berk being reconstruct

This is.. Berk. a bit trumpled and busted. and covered in ice but its home.

Those who attacked us was relentless and crazy. But those who stop them, oh even more so!

We maybe small in numbers, but we stand for something. Bigger than anything that the world can pit against us. We are the voice of the peace. and bit by bit we will change the world.

and Hiccup proudly declaring

We have something they don’t. Oh sure they have armies, they have armadas. But we, we have.. Our Dragons!

That’s Hiccup, brave, adventurous and leader. 🙂

and That’s all How to train Your Dragon or at advance, how to be a dragon master. 5 stars from me. Oh yups, the movie has the vagabond, adventurous  song by Jonzi and John Powell. When hearing this song, I feel like I fly at the sky with my dragon.. Can I have a dragon?

Let the wind carry us
To the clouds, hurry up, alright
We can travel so far
As our eyes can see

We go where no one goes
We slow for no one
Get out of our way

I’m awake when up in the skies
There’s no break up so high, alright
Let’s make it our own,
Let’s savor it

We go where no one goes
We slow for no one
Get out of our way

We slow for no one
We go where no one goes

We go where no one goes

Fight for Your Dreams

“Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.”
Lao Tzu

Setiap orang pasti pernah punya impian, apakah itu tentang pendidikan, relationship, pekerjaan dan tentunya segala hal yang berkaitan dengan hidup itu sendiri. Saat kita memiliki impian, kita akan selalu berusaha melakukan yang terbaik, melakukan segala macam usaha untuk mewujudkan impian kita itu. Tetapi, kadang di tengah jalan kita menemukan kesulitan, rasa sakit dan kadang ingin menyerah.

I am sure everybody have had down. It is okay if you feel tired. It is okay.. but then you should wake up and stand up and try to reach those dreams.

“it is not important how many time you fall, but how many time you rise” – Nelson Mandela

I hope today that you are in a good spirit to achieve your dreams, if you are not, I hope some of this songs will inspire you. Here are my favorite song that lift me up, to fight for my dreams. 🙂

I hope you enjoy the songs 🙂

1. Glory – Yui

Lagu ini diberikan oleh salah seorang teman terbaik saya, Shuma Hime. Salah satu peristiwa yang cukup menyakitkan bagi seorang pelajar adalah mendapat nilai yang kecil dan tidak lulus. Ah, sudahlah.  Inilah video yang menginspirasi saya  untuk belajar lebih rajin dan lebih tekun.



Yang ini lagu dari Yui lagi dan lagi-lagi disumbangkan oleh Suma. Intinya, dalam setiap kehidupan kita, apa pun itu, teruslah berjuang.

3. Strong and Be Brave – Arie & The Project

Saya suka liriknya. Coba deh dievaluasi setiap kalimat di liriknya, dalem banget. “strong and be brave, what ever it takes, waktu kan menjawab..”. tetap semangat, berjuang, bagaimana pun itu. Hari ini kita mungkin belum jadi apa-apa, tetapi dengan upaya dan doa esok kita pasti bisa.

4. Jangan Menyerah – D’Massiv

Tak ada manusia yang terlahir sempurna. Kita pasti pernah dapatkan cobaan yang berat. Syukuri apa yang ada hidup adalah anugrah. Tetap jalani hidup ini, melakukan yang terbaik. Tuhan pasti kan menunjukkan, kebesaran dan kuasanya. Baginya hambanya yang sabar dan tak pernah putus asa. Jangan Menyerah 🙂

5. Kanzen Kankaku Dreamer – One OK Rock

Ini adalah band Jepang favorit saya. Rock, just another side of myself 🙂 Lagu ini juga pemberian Shuma. “Bermimpilah, jangan pedulikan apa yang orang lain katakan tentang mimpi kita. Jika kau ingin membalasnya, balaslah dengan jabat tangan saat impian itu menjadi nyata” – Novia

6. Superhero – The Script

Ini adalah lagu yang selalu saya putar minggu-minggu ini. Seorang teman mengupload liriknya di blog dan ketika saya mencarinya di Youtube, awesome.

Okay, Good People. That’s how a superhero learns to fly… Fight for your dreams!
