Pesan Dari Bintang by Sitta Karina

Sunday, November 28, 2010

"Some people say that in friendship we share anything;
share the laugh, pain, stories, and secrets. Even the darkest one."

Pesan Dari Bintang adalah salah satu novel teenlit tentang kisah klasik persahabatan jadi cinta, tapi tidak ngoyo, menurut saya. Bercerita tentang Inez dan Niki dan persahabatan mereka yang di mulai ketika masih sama-sama tinggal di New York City sana. Inez Hanafiah, 'Paris Hilton'-nya Indonesia ini terkesima dengan seorang cowok Indonesia biasa yang tidak saja baik tapi juga tidak memandangnya seperti cowok-cowok kebanyakan mengenal dirinya hanya karena latar belakang keluarganya. Tambahan lagi yang membuat Inez selalu ingin dekat dengan Nikratama Zakrie, Niki-nya, adalah ketulusan.

Novel ini jadi favorite saya di antara semua karya Sitta Karina. Di kemas dengan bahasa yang gak ngejelimet dan mengalir begitu saja dengan mudah. Khas seperti novel Sitta yang lain.

Sitta Karina jelas mahir membuat sebuah konflik menjadi menarik dengan gaya penciteraan yang detail, sehingga pembaca dapat dengan mudah membayangkan karakter tokoh maupun tempat dengan sempurna, seakan kita bisa mencium bagaimana atmosfer sekeliling saat itu juga. Menarik bukan?

Cerita ini bakal menarik banget kalau jadi sebuah film. Itu yang selalu saya tunggu. Begitu juga untuk novel-novel Sitta Karina yang lain seperti Lukisan Hujan, Putri Hujan dan Kesatria Malam yang bercerita tentang Diaz dan Sisy, Titanium tentang Austin Hanafiah dan Romijin-Indira Singgih, Imaji Terindah tentang Chris dan Aki, dan Seluas Langit Biru tentang Bianca Hanafiah dan Aozora atau Sora, yang memang memiliki benang merah tentang keluarga Hanafiah. Menarik untuk di baca berurutan tapi tetap seru walau di baca satu-satu.

Kisah Inez dan Niki itu a modern fairy tale with a unique story. Bahasanya tidak picisan. Pesan-pesan moral yang ada di dalamnya juga tidak seperti menggurui, malah asyik sendiri untuk di simak. bahkan membaca berulang-ulang buku ini pun belum pernah menemui kata bosan dalam kamus saya. Ada saja hal baru yang saya temukan ketika saya membalikkan setiap halaman.

Penasaran ingin tahu seperti apa sih asiknya cerita persahabatan Inez dan Niki di sini? Miliki satu dan kamu akan temukan sensasi seru dari setiap halaman yang kamu buka. And trust me, this is one book that you wont want to end.

Caught between Two World

Caught between Two World

When I was child
insecure had always been my feeling
They give hands to hold.
Because I was continuously crying.

When I am an adult
its about blood and bone
I choose someone to be with
For something together to be done

Caught between two world
I'm tried to be something
I want the better life as a girl
As I was afraid of having something,instead I have nothing...

This little things about Prince of Words

Wednesday, November 24, 2010
If you think he speaks a lot, you are totally wrong. He don't.

If you think his move said anything about him, you are wrong. He don't.

If you think he tell the story like I did, you are wrong. He won't.

If you think he would tell you detail about his day or how he ends his week, when u asked, maybe... You close to the right thing.

He has all of it in his mind, didn't say much, laughing deeply. Personally I said, he's not that charming. He's not that handsome. But yes, he has point of kindness, friendly, and gentle

He has nothing particularly special, but he succeed to stole my heart

He don't have a sexy lips, but when he smiles, my heart feels like stop beating.

When everyone looking at me, only him who can't, but that's make him special.

When talks about him, anger love n emotional become one.

He's speaks about his world, without saying anything. Because he doesn't say much, he said anything with his heart and his eyes, that's why I called him Prince of Words.

A Letter of Given Up

Monday, November 22, 2010
It has been almost a year since I knew him. Close. And almost two years, I knew him, from far.
Maybe he's looking for love, or maybe not?

Exploring his world is the one I liked. It's not being a stalker. But to know what he thinks is the one thing I wanted to know also.
I wish I had that ability. Read minds! and he was the first person I wanted to know, what was passed in his mind.

Maybe he's looking for love, or maybe not?

Dear, Prince of Words :
Do you have that feeling for me?
Will you belong to me?
Do you miss me, when I feel the same?
Is there something wrong, with my feeling to you?
All that question still spinning around on my mind, when I come alone.

You know what, people have been told me all the time, that my feel to you was something impossible to be come true. That you won't ever love me back, or at least looking at me.

You know what, Dear Prince of Word, I tried to keep telling my self that maybe have some miracle would happen here, when I have faith in my life, and someday, you could see me just as a girl who like you most.

Am i looks like a crazy girl? Hey, but I'm just a girl. Who like someone very much. Did I do something wrong? Did I say something wrong?

Maybe, next time I would have courage to say it to you. Directly.

Maybe, this time is my time to turning back, to another life, and without you standing there.
I need my time back.
Maybe my friends rite, I just need to be alone.

For a while.

Mr. Grey
(Peri Hutan Cat)

Today, Peri Hutan face is not shinny. At all. Her soulmate leave without saying goodbye. One of her best friend, even disappear without waving his beautiful tail. Mr. Grey missing!!!

Since Mr Grey the cat, was gone, it was makes Peri Hutan sad and housemates as well. No one knew where Mr. Grey walked away, no one knows also when Mr. Grey will back home.
She doesn't like this. She was used to hear the cat snores everyday, and now even none at all.

Mr. Grey is too precious. Its not money, but love.
Although all fairies busy looking for him, Mr Grey is still not coming back.

Peri hutan only could pray, Mr. Grey is safe wherever he is.
And may God protect him.
And hopefully he can return as soon as possible.
Peri Hutan miss him.
She missed his snoring.
She missed his beautiful tail.
She missed his naughty smile.
She missed her lovely cat.

Wish he come home, anytime soon. T_T

Tanah Mentawai & Gunung Merapi

Monday, November 08, 2010
Sudah lebih dari sepekan, isi surat kabar dunia Peri di hebohkan dengan gambar-gambar yang bahkan tak berwarna. Gambaran Peri-Peri di Tanah Mentawai dan sekitar Gunung Merapi sudah tak bercahaya lagi. Tawa dan canda mereka lenyap seketika tersapu oleh getaran bumi yang menggegar, dan sapuan air laut yang tak bersahabat ke pinggiran pulau yang membuat rumah mereka tak lagi berdiri. Membuat mereka tak lagi beratapkan sebuah rumah. Membuat mereka tak lagi bertempat tinggal.

Daerah tenang nan indah sekitaran Gunung Merapi pun sekarang malah sudah menjadi daerah abu-abu. Tanahnya tak lagi berwarna hijau. Hanya abu-abu. Kecil, halus namun tajam membunuh tak nampak. Tanahnya tak lagi berpenghuni jiwa yang hidup. Jiwa-jiwa peri-peri melayang di mana-mana. Meninggalkan sang jasad yang tak sempat berpesan dengan mereka yang tercinta.

Kali ini berita nya lain lagi.
Tapi bukan berita yang menggembirakan pula. 22 gunung di Indonesia tercinta mengumumkan dalam kondisi aktif, dan waspada. Tidak ada yang berani membayangkan bila mereka memuntahkan isi perutnya dalam waktu bersamaan.
Mungkin Indonesia kami yang indah hanya tinggal cerita.
Mungkin jadi bencana terbesar abad ini.
Mungkin korban yang berjatuhan akan jutaan.
Mungkin tanah kelahiran kita akan banjir air mata di mana-mana.

Tapi sebagai Peri-peri di bumi, mereka bergotong royong. Bantuan meluncur dari segala penjuru. Dunia turut bersimpati. Doa pun berdatangan tak putus-putus. Mengalirkan permohonan maaf kepada Sang Kuasa, kepada alam. Tangisan kehilangan sudah meraja lela.

Dunia memang prihatin, namun itu mengajarkan kita untuk lebih menghargai alam sekitar.
Mungkin lautan marah...
Mungkin gunung pun marah...
Mungkin ada perlakuan kita pada mereka yang salah...

Dunia masih menjalankan hukum karma.
Mungkin ini salah satu peringatannya.
Mungkin kita harus berpikir ulang, untuk lebih bijak pada alam.
Mungkin kita harus lebih bijak dalam bersikap.

Itu karma.
Saat semua perilaku kita dapat membawa kita ke jalan yang baik, atau sebaliknya.

Mungkin apa yang terjadi di Tanah Mentawai dan Gunung Merapi memiliki arti. Mereka membawa pesan.
Tuhan selalu melakukan hal baik untuk mahluknya.
Mungkin kita masih di beri-Nya kesempatan untuk berubah.
Lalu berubah lah. Pada jalan baik yang sudah di persiapkan-Nya.

Ia masih memberi waktu...
Selama masih ada waktu...

Cerita sang Peri Aceh dan kedatangannya

Langit sudah mulai gelap. Peri-Peri sudah dari tadi mengepakkan sayap tipis mereka pulang ke rumah.
Bahkan si Peri bermata Elang yang biasanya berburu di kala malam menyapa, memilih pulang ke sangkar lebih awal.

Peri Hutan kedatangan lawan. Peri lain, dia berasal dari ujung Indonesia. namanya Peri Aceh.

Peri Hutan tak tahu namanya sebernarnya, hanya memanggilnya saja begitu, karena ia tahu yang lawan berasal dari Aceh. Bukannya ia benci pada sang Peri Aceh, hanya tidak suka. Pilihannya lah ia memutuskan menyukai atau tidak.

Mereka berebut piala yang sama. Pangeran Kata-Kata.
Kabar dari istana mengatakan, Pangeran Kata-kata sempat meminangnya. tak lama cerita itu bersambut, mereka berpisah.
Satu hari Pangeran Kata-kata mendongeng, namun tak menyebutkan asal muasal cerita. Sukses membuat Peri Hutan menebak-nebak dalam gelap.

Peri Hutan tak benci dia. Hanya tidak memilih untuk menyukainya.
Peri Aceh membuat hatinya terluka. Bukan Pangeran Kata-kata yang melakukannya. Tapi Peri Aceh merebutnya.

Mungkin Pangeran Kata-kata silap.
Mungkin Peri Aceh tak tahu.
Mungkin Peri Hutan hanya tak sengaja mematahkan sayapnya sendiri, ketika memutuskan pergi mencari dan meminta sang cupid memanahkan panahnya paksa antara dirinya dan sang Pangeran.

Ia hanya ingin rasa itu tersedia untuknya.
Rasa yang dapat menyembuhkan luka sayapnya, dan membuatnya indah seperti sedia kala.

Langit malam datang, sang rembulan menyapa. Namun Peri Hutan tak bersemangat membalas. Pikirannya melayang jauh.

Andai Pangeran Kata-kata tau, ia tak perlu berlari jauh.
Andai Peri Aceh pergi saja kembali ke kehidupan lamanya dan menenggelamkan kisahnya di laut lepas.
Andai itu terjadi, mungkin Peri Hutan akan membalas senyum cerah Nyonya Rembulan malam ini.

Stupidly Clumsy In Love

Sunday, November 07, 2010
For past a year, I've been in love.

To you :
My prince of word.
My charming and brownies skin prince.
My kind and good friend prince.
My.. Oh My..

I admit. It was blind. It was hurt. But at the same time, it was fun. I enjoyed every second I can see ur eyes.
To be in love for whole time (see, its not a part time job), brought me a lot of to think about.

Try to focusing my heart and mind just for him (Prince of Words) and got a lot of rejected feeling wasn't easy for sure. But its like my heart, teach me, to do not just give up.

It's like they saying, you still have a lot of time, to be in love and to be in hurt.

I called, for my case with him is "Stupidly Clumsy in love". I called it stupid, and its clumsy. In love in the wrong time, on the wrong place. Is there any possibility that I've been in love just with the wrong person?

It's been a year, same person, and get nothing.. What I called by stupidly clumsy ~~~ in love with you...
