hello again, bloggers! fresh from Jogja, I'll tell you about my "mudik" journey on 2010. well, this is it!
Of course you've known that I stayed at my Dad's office before going mudik. Then at 7 PM, we got to Mom's Office at Mega Kuningan, then went to Jogja. Tapi, kita baru berangkat sekitar jam 9 malem, karena plus plus macet di kuningan, nyari jalan tembus, and waited for my mom (she was busy with her works -_-) Akhirnyaaa kita berangkat! jeng jeng jeng!
Well, actually, at the most of the journey I fell asleep hehe. Just for you to know, I hate toyota car's smell. the smells really makes me sick. Baunya bener bener kecampur tau ga sih. Dulu, pas ke Bali tahun 2007, pulangnya kita bawa durian, dan itu bikin mobilnya bau banget. Next year, bawa salak, dan baunya kecampur. aje gileee, durian + salak + bau toyota = mual. belom ditambah bau bakso pesenan yangti, itu bakso bau bawang putih banget. makin eneg aja saya -,- I was in dreamland, until in the middle of the night suddenly I woke up. pas bangun denger lagu SUSISnya Sule lagi. Susis oooo susis.. suami sieun istri *gedubrak*
uhuy, udah aja saya nerusin tidur lagi. ngelurusin kaki lagi. nendangin kardus lagi (inilah enaknya mudik tanpa sanak saudara wkwk) Ibu ngebangunin saya pas jam 4-an, katanya sahur. oiya iya. Well, ternyata udah nyampe cirebon. yeah, kok masih jauh? kirain udah nyampe tegal ato mana gitu -_-" karena males makan, akhirnya saya asal gigit aja apel yang dikasih ibu. terus cepet cepet makan chiki gitu, udah mau adzan lagi hahaha. dan shubuh pun tiba, berhenti sholat subuh di suatu mesjid-yang-saya-lupa-namanya-dan-dimana
And, suddenly I saw these. I saw a SUNRISE! the best sunrise ever! well, enggak sih, best sunrise itu waktu ke Bali tahun 2007, waktu sunrise langitnya warna pink -lagi lagi saya lupa dimana- langsung aja, check this out!
sunrise, sunrise.. looks like mornin' in your eyes
oya, let me introduce my partners in this journey ;
Bapak! (: the best driver ever on the earth! Schumacher aja kalah :p
Ibu, as the navigator for Bapak. Yeah, she navigated traffic from twitter with her glossy onyx, of course.
We passed through many small cities, just like Tegal, Temanggung, etc. In Tegal, I found a beautiful sky just like pictures above. I started to update facebook status oftenly, for prevent some headache (you know, all of that strange smells make me dizzy) but the most annoying things is :
yea, when we were at Temanggung, the signal suddenly gone. the GPRS is SOS. what the hell. I've tried to reload it, but it doesn't work at all. annoying -__- but after several minutes, the signal is back! yeah!
setelah menempuh perjalanan selama 14 jam, finally we arrived at Jogja. It was raining out there. but my dizzy started to gone. I felt so happy! Rasa kantuk pun hilang *iyalah, berapa kali coba saya ketiduran di mobil? wkwk. then, it's my grandparents's house, TADAAA!
it may looks like ordinary house, but wait until you see this :
yep, di bagian belakang rumah eyang saya, ada kos kosan! dan atapnya bolong! of course lah, kalo nggak bolong dari mana tumbuhan di tengah itu dapet cahaya? I really misses this house soo badly. I grew up in here, spent most of my holiday there. Love the weather there. It's always warm at my grandparents's house, believe or not.
and there is some unique things at my grannie house :
It's my mommy's trophies. And all of that trophies is for pageant things. See the first and second trophies from left? It's for event "Si Nok dan Si Tong". "Si Nok dan Si Tong" events are just like "Abang dan None Jakarta" events. But the differences is, it be held at Kabupaten Brebes (near Tegal) . My mom attended this contest 2 times. First, at 1985, she rewarded as "Favorite Winner". Second, at 1986, she won the first place!! I'm proud of you mom. (saya heran, kenapa saya ga ada turunan kemayunya Ibu, malah slebor cenderung slenge'an gini, CEKA) and the last trophies, it's from "Pemilihan Putri Citra Indonesia 1992". and again, my mom won favorite winner. what a great achievement. lah saya sebagai anaknya? boro boro jadi gadis sampul, jadi feminin aja kayaknya udah alhamdulillah -___-
HAHAHA lol, it's my uncle's old KTP (ID) I dunno his reaction if he found out that I was snapping this. sorry Om Ook :P hehehehe
i was trying to do some "indoor-fashion-photoshoot" , but my kukung teased me. he tickled me, as always he does. and I started to laugh. below is foto gagal, wkwk. just info, there's never been a grandchild that can resist my kukung's tickling. all of my cousins always running when kukung started to tickling us, hahahaha. meskipun kayak gitu, I'm proud and glad to have grandpa like kukung. you're the best grandpa on the earth! :)
well, in this aidil fitri, I met many nice little buddies too (if they aren't nice, I'll smash them all. HAHA i'm just kidding) and this is Diksa (the girl) and Caca (the boy) they look like little-soulmate, right? aaah they're so sweet, i just envy them :3 but then I found out that they are cousins. aaah :O *dissapointed*
Well, a day after Aidil Fitri Day, we went to a city named Salatiga (there are my relatives live there) it took about 3 hours to get there from Jogja. Fortunately, we're going early, precisely at 7 o'clock, so we didn't faces any traffic ^^ I sat on very behind chair. huhu, udah panas, bikin mabok lagi. but I saw a great view in front of me. yep, apalagi kalau bukan my Uncle and his iPad, forever and always.
uncle oo and his iPad
Finally, we arrived in Salatiga at 11 o'clock. The weather in Salatiga is pretty cool , I'd love it. Just so you know, my kakek-buyut-or-something-like-that was a pilot at Independence war, so he receives many medals, certificate and pins like this :
I met nice friends again in here, he's Afif! he's so friendly, and I remember, the last time I've been there, he likes to play with his Happy Holly Kids doll which can sing, and he sing-along too. He's really cute until now. Now he's a little bigger and smarter. He knows a lot about planets and solar system, even I dunno much about that. Love ya Afif!
when we about on the way back to Jogja, we faces traffic in prambanan -___- fortunately I brought my earphones, so I can listen some song. Entertained enough. Tiba tiba saya denger Ibu, Yangti dan Om oo yang duduk di depan saya ngobrol tentang sesuatu bernama "Kembang Goyang" . pertamanya saya kira "Kembang Goyang" yang dimaksud seperti ini bentuknya :
terus saya denger Ibu bilang, "Tempat beli kembang goyang yang enak dimana sih?"
"Ibu, orang di Bogor banyak. yang deket mcd lodaya itu looh. harganya ada yang 20-an, 12.000an, banyak deh!" kata saya, polos banget sumpah.
"ha? emang ada ya?"
"Iya, orang Anjing Goyang Goyang juga ada..."
"BAHAHAHAHA kembang goyang itu beda sama bunga goyang goyang."
yup, i was thinking that "Kembang Goyang" is similar with "Bunga Goyang Goyang" dasar aneh -__- gara gara nyambung kayak kabel listrik sih. mana waktu itu konsen ke earphone, jadi asal ngomong aja -_-" think before you talk! till now, I still smiled when I remember that silly conversation :)
this is the real "Kembang Goyang"
The next day, I'm going to Jepara. There are my relatives from Kukung there. Went to Jepara took longer time, for about 5 hours. We're leaving home early, at 6.30 AM, because we need to pick up our ice cream (Yangti--my grandma, ordered Ice Cream for my relatives at Jepara) The view where the Ice Cream made is kinda fresh and looks good.
pemandangan deket pabrik es krim
On the way to Jepara, I saw Merapi Mountain too, not from near, but clear enough. See the pictures above. By the way, don't know why I started to think about silly things, just like ; uuh kayaknya romantis banget ya kalo misalnya camping di atas gunung, berdua doang sama belahan jiwa kita (eaaaaa asik dah ngomongnya belahan jiwa) terus bikin api unggun berdua, terus entar ada backsound-nya "Love Me Tender" by Elvis Presley
Love me tender... love me sweet.. never let me go...
Lagi romantis romantisnya, tiba tiba sang lava terkutuk keluar dari dalam gunung, mendekati pasangan romantis itu. Kedua orang itu pun sibuk menyelamatkan diri. Backsoundnya ganti jadi "Boom Boom Pow" by Black Eyed Peas
Boom boom boom, gotta get get...
Dan tiba-tiba, si cowok tenggelam terseret lava. Si cewek narik narik tangan si cowok, mereka nggak mau melepaskan diri. Backsoundnya ganti lagi jadi "Titanic" by Celine Dion
Near.. Far.. Wherever you are.. I believe that the heart does go on...
*mau niru aksen nafas celine dion malah kedengeran kayak nahan kentut wkwk*
Si cowok mati tertelan lava terkutuk. Si cewek yang stress ditinggal sang belahan jiwa berubah menjadi hulk, lalu bermutasi menjadi gorilla.
oke saya tahu ini ngaco abis wkwkwk, kelamaan di mobil sih! :p
Waktu di jalan, di Ambarawa, kukung sempet ngasih tau bahwa rumahnya Syekh Puji ada di Ambarawa. Saya surprised gitu langsung fresh "mana mana?" eeeeh taunya kelewat -__- aaaaaaaaaah gagal deh gatot! gagal total. Then we arrived at Demak. Ibu sama Yangti mau beli pisau, jadi berhenti sejenak di Demak, di kota wali. awalnya saya aneh, ha, beli pisau kok di demak? tapi ternyata pisau yang kuat emang belinya di sini -.- aneh aneh aja deh wahaha.
My mom said "kata orang nih, belom berasa ke kudus kalo belum nyicipin nasi pindang ayam dan kerbau." that's why, at 11 AM we stopped for a moment in a place at Kudus, just for eat. well say it as BRANCH (breakfast and lunch) because we haven't eat a breakfast while the times already near to lunch time. We have branch at Kedai Pak H Sullichan (it's recommended by Jalan Sutra--Pak Bondan mailing list) Spesialnya di sini itu Nasi Pindang Ayam & kerbau sama Soto Ayam & kerbau. We ordered Nasi Pindang Ayam and Soto Ayam.
Well, I loveee Nasi Pindang Ayam and Soto Ayam the most. Nasi Pindang Ayam got a unique taste, it taste sweet but still delicious. The taste of Soto Ayam just like the taste of Sarimi Soto Koya or Mie Sedap rasa Soto. Only one word, maknyoss. thumbs up!
We arrived at Jepara :) this town could be called as the town of woman, yaa because this is Kartini's hometown. By the way, I met another little buddies, her name is Shefa, 6 months year old. onyuuuuu what a cutie! ^o^
New daughter of Ibu, Shefa :))
this is... I forgot his name! hehehe I should ask Kukung first,
Those all made by Kukung's older sister (gilee ga capek apa ya bikin sebanyak ini, ckck)
Kukung met his old friend
Outfit? branded. Sandal? branded. Cellphone? iPhone (branded, of course) Style? unbranded wkwk
going back home, the sky was amazing! (satu sisi gelap, satu sisi bener2 terang)
Monday morning, I packed my suitcase because I will going back to Bogor at the afternoon. Before going home, I took a walk with my mom. We ride a motorcycle together, and went to Karita, Traditional Market, Beringharjo Market, and of course MALIOBORO!!
traditional market @ mataram street
When we were about to went back home, suddenly the rain started to fall. Dead us, we went by motorcycle, mana mau ambil pesenan bakpia lagi. kalo bakpianya basah gimana? mati mati matiiiiii. udah aja itu nekad nembus ujan, padahal ga bawa jas ujan (dan kayaknya emang ga punya) dan abis dari bakpia citra, kita pergi ke toko bakpia agung. disitulah ujannya mulai deres sederes deresnya (untung ga berpetir, ga kaya di bogor) yaudah aja berteduh di bakpia agung. dan akhirnya kukung dan om oo jemput, karena ga mungkin bawaan sebanyak waktu itu dibawa motor sambil ujan ujanan. I was going in the car with Kukung and my uncle, my mom drive the motorcycle.
Karena ujan nyebelin itu, akhirnya kita baru bisa pulang jam setengah 8 malem, and arrived at bogor jam setengah 7 pagi, hari selasa.
welcome homeee :D
well, how about your "mudik" journey? ;D
