Here It Comes Again

First of all congratz for young indonesian writers who can make me buy their books. At least there are few local writers who have a fanatic fans like me 😀 I just finished reading Gege Mengejar Cinta, a story with fireworks climax, said one of the reviewers. Many details are not rational, but somehow the writer could bring them smoothly without making them gross. And here it comes again… After a month of heart to heart chatting *dan membuat gw 2 hari gak bisa nganalisis kerjaan*, i finally cried.

The story of Gege Mengejar Cinta is about love triangle *thanks ya mit.* among one man and *of course* two women. Singkatnya, yg cowo kocak luar dalam cinta mati ama cw cantik, baik, anggun, pinter, putih, rambut lurus *pokoknya yg menunjukkan ketidakadilan duniawi*. Sedangkan there is another woman who trully in love with him. A sweet ordinary woman with curly hair. So, who is he?

Gege bukanlah orang tertampan di muka bumi. Dia juga bukan orang terkaya di bumi. Dia bahkan juga tidak lebih ganteng dari beberapa spesies ayam hibrida. Dia juga bukan Einstein. Tapi satu yang Gege miliki adalah kemampuan membuat Tia nyaman berada di sampingnya.
–quoted from the book

I love the end of the story. They don’t meant to be. There is no a person who get all of the miseries and there is no couple *diantara mereke bertiga* live ever after.

And which part could touch my heart so deep? It’s not the main story but there are details who remains me that Tia *the second woman* is close enough to me. She always keeps her reputation, so she has to drink many bitter pils while saying they are sweet. She has curly hair and there is part in the climax where someone tells her to comb her hair. Well, almost all of human being i’ve ever met say the same thing to me. She does mean thing to keep her love, which i was much much worse than her. Gege named her Nenek Lampir in his phone book, and other named me ‘sadis’ or ‘jelek’, and i think it’s worse than nenek lampir. In the end she puts all of her reputation and masks to fight for her love. I did the same, and i failed, i lost him, so is she. When she *Tia, if you become confuse* fight getting Gege, Gege rejects her and praying for Tia’s happiness. Someone prayed me the same and his words were almost the same with Gege’s words. He prayed wish me get a good guy who will be accompany me for worse and good time. Good guy who will be the father my children. The last scene is Tia meet Gege to say sorry and tell Gege she will be married with a man who thinks Tia is the center of his life. Tia is moving on and i am moving on. I told you sorry too, although it was on my gmail chatt and your meebo window.

This is the last foot note in the book:

When you have a lovely but bitter past with someone and happens to meet them. Keep it light. Keep it short. Most of all, keep them, away

So this is words i haven’t said: *deleted* i don’t need say those words. I have confessed, you’ve told things i wanted to know.

Dari film The Interpreter, gak dapet conversation aslinya secara utuh, tapi bahasa indonesianya gini *yang intinya ikhlas itu bagus dan balas dendam tidak baik*:

Di Suku Ku, apabila ada seorang anggota keluarganya dibunuh, maka keluarga itu punya satu bulan masa berkabung. Di akhir bulan, ada festival menenggelamkan orang ke sungai, yaitu pembunuhnya. When the killer is caught, he is taken out in a boat, along with the victim’s family. He is then thrown into the water to drown. The aggrieved family then can let him die or they can rescue him. If they let him die, they will have their vengeance but they will grieve forever. If they rescue him, he will live but they will have peace. It is their choice. Terkadang di dalam kehidupan ini kita tidak bisa selalu mendapatkan keadilan.

  1. cuma menjawab pertanyaan pertama elu di atas Juk, bahasa Inggris-nya cinta segitiga itu love triangle.

    that. and i just wonder why she had to do mean things to *cough*keep her love*cough*. i mean, what are the odds. with all do respect, i just don’t understand.

  2. hmm…gw juga jadi gak ngerti mit. Maxudlu itu kenapa tia harus jahat ama gege ato perbuatan itu wajar2 aja?
    Karena lu nanya what are the odds, berarti menurutlu itu sah2 aja karena namanya juga usaha? Sorry kalo gw salah. Yah, itu reaksi yg wajar si, tapi kalo gw si akhirnya cuma nyesel.

  3. ahh kalian ini … make bahasa inggris pula.

    hmm…quoting from you: “… , and other named me ’sadis’ or ‘jelek’, and i think it’s worse than nenek lampir. …”. hmm.. you did not mention about the “juki” thing 😛 well … at least, for me, “jelek” or “sadis” is much more better than “nenek sihir” .. coba deh bayangin orang “jelek”, orang “galak”, dan “nenek sihir” … pasti yang baca ini bayanginnya tetep elu-elu juga 😛

    gw becanda juk 😛 btw lagi … tia itu bukannya rambutnya “ikal” ya??? kan kalo elu … keriting 😛 … dan… cie juki .. melo melo g jelas juk? :p

    gw pinjem dongs bukunya …

  4. well secara gw belom baca buku ini, jadi gw gak ngerti being mean di sini maksudnya apa, but im assuming she (we’re talking abt Tia) does things to hurt him. which i dont understand why. im not even talking abt kewajaran here karena ngerti aja nggak. and by asking what are the odds, maksud gw adalah apa kemungkinan2 yang akan terjadi kalo dia berbuat seperti itu. apakah terus si Gege bisa jadi lebih tertarik sama dia gitu. itu gw gak ngerti. well most probably ill find the answers if i jst read the book which because one thing or another im not really interested in. at least for now heheh.

    ~Cheer up Juk 🙂
