16 February 2013 23:57:06 Dibaca : 176

I do like this song very much. Maroon 5 as the one of biggest band was made this song is very beautiful. They show their capabilities in this song. Adam as the vocalist sang this song as well. I think Maroon 5 lovers have same opinion that Adam has a unique voice or he has different characteristic of voice with other vocalists. Their collaboration of music that depends on their position in this group was very nice. This song is a song in their album “About Jane”.

This song tells about the complicated relationship. The girl is not going as well in their relationship whereas the man has more feeling about love. It is explained by

“She said good bye to many times before”

“Her heart is breaking in front of me”

“And I have no choice cause I won’t say good bye anymore”

It is so deep for me. But, it does not mean I have the same situation of relationship with the song, honestly. Today, I learn more the tutorial of acoustic version, a lot and I did. I hope one day I can sing this song with my beloved guitar in front of my friends.

Bentor is a kind of transportation in Gorontalo. This transportation makes this province different with another. Bentor is the evolution of Becak. We know Becak is the transportation that combines of bicycle and cart. But Bentor is created by motor cycle and cart (the combination), that is why it called Bentor or Becak Motor. Now, there is a community of Bentor driver, “Ikata Pengemudi Bentor” or most Gorontalo people say “IPB”. They are spread almost in all traffic line. Usually, the community (IPB) is organizing the members for each traffic line. The cost is depend of distance of the place that passenger will go to. Usually, I pay Rp. 4000,- to go to Campus from my home in Asparaga. I would like to suggest you that you should make a deal with the driver before the journey. Because, sometimes I heard some information from my friends that they paid more to the driver than another day even though the distance is not far as they think before. And they realized that they did not make a deal before about that.

Hujan

10 February 2013 23:07:37 Dibaca : 154

Sebuah fenomena alam yang lazim terjadi dimana saja. Tak jarang menjadi hal yang sering diielu-elukan sebagian orang seperti petani. Namun bagi sebagian lain malah menjadi hal yang tidak diinginkan seperti para pembuah gerabah.

Senjaku yang ditemani hujan. Kilas pengalaman yang terkenang kembali. Setiap tetes yang kian mengukirnya menjadi lebih nyata dimataku. Kadang mengundang senyuman kecil mengingat jilbab hijau yang dikenakan wanita itu terasa sesuai dengan dirnya. Lirikan yang mengundang tanya. Terus mengigil dalam duduknya. Kudekati dengan keterbatasan diri ini. “Wa kaifa khalluk?” tanyaku. Hanya tundukan teduh mata yang memberikan isyarat sebuah sakit yang teramat sebagai jawaban. Raga yang cukup kuat tuk menunggu masa 20 menit atas sesuatu yang dapat menyelamatkan hidupnya, walaupun hal itu sebenarnya tidak cukup bagi dirinya. Lama kutatapi, tiba-tiba, “Sukron” yang terucap dari bibirnya yang sedikit terlihat kepayahan menunjukkan sebuah senyuman. Tak pernah terlupa oleh ku, sebuah sungai kecil yang terukir pada wajahnya saat kan pergi ke sebuah tempat yang dia pun tidak begitu yakin kan menetap lama di sana. Ku balas dengan lambaian tangan. Ya, perpisahan yang lebih dari yang kuharapkan. Kesan yang begitu tidak biasa menyapaku saat itu dalam senjaku. Keadaanmu yang baik selalu menjadi harapku walaupun kita sama-sama tidak mengetahui "hal itu".

Dan hujan pun berhenti seiring kenangan yang tersimpan di dalamnya. Terkadang begitu banyak persepsi yang muncul atas “Hujan”. Sangat relatif, tapi ku yakin semua orang kan mendapat sebuah kesan dengan kehadiran “Pelangi”. Thanks a lot rain, you will make me much better from this time.
