A Notepad

#nowplaying Adele - Make You Feel My Love

You told me I was pretty in pink.
I don’t like pink.
But I’d love to wear pink again whenever we'd meet just to have my ears hear “lo cantik deh, pake pink” once again.

You told me you haven’t packed your bags yet because of me.
I haven’t close my eyes to sleep because of you.
Well, I’d stay awake to have a talk with you.

I know everything has its price.
I’d buy everything to have the night with you again.
I’d pay expensive—I’d pay more if that’s how I can get to you.

I like, I love every sweet words came out from you.
Though I knew already it wasn't real at all.
But I still like it. Love it.
Never been a man done something really sweet that I might be dying inside the sweetness.

I built a fortress all over my heart.
I tried to saved it from your sweet-killing words.
And somehow I failed.

It was a very short time, but you did me right.
You got me into your gravity.
And I started to feel comfort in your gravity.
Until you said you're joking.
You're ONLY joking.

Don’t play games with me, kiddo.

I like your jokes, you might take it as something fun, but I unfortunately fall for it, happy with it, and take it seriously.

And maybe you might wanna know, that I don't care, I really don't care.
I'd stay awake till the morn.
I'd pay everything.
I don't care about the ending which I already knew.

But I don't care.
I just wanna be happy.
I'm happy with you.
And I just wanna be happy with you.

I am happy with you.

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true.
Nothing that I wouldn't do.
Go to the ends of the Earth for you,
To make you feel my love

Charity Event to Al Haniifiyyah: Review

So people, this post will be a review about the charity event that we held at Panti Asuhan dan Pondok Pesantren Al Haniifiyyah, Jatiluhur, Bekasi Selatan on August 22, 2011. By the way, "we" here refers to me, Hanny Rufaida and Cantik Mudia Ramadian as the organizing manager and also those of you who helped us along the way to make this event succeeded.

For Mahesa Matin Antasya, thanks for the transportation help and also for helping me having all the gift wrapped. And to family and fellas who helped us by donating some of your cash, or your old clothes and accessories or prayers of good luck. Thank you so much. Your help meant a lot.

The total amount of cash donation we received was Rp1.430.000. This total amount exceeded our previous target of only Rp1.000.000. The usage of the cash was to buy gifts that are given to the orphan kids:

A gift contained of books, pen, pencil, ruler, eraser, milk, and some snacks.

80 gifts were packed.

Packs of gifts, clothes, cups of pudding, quiz presents, and cakes.

Besides gifts, we also spent them to buy some special gifts. Oh by the way, we managed to have some quizes and games for the kids and that's why we spent some cash to buy some special gifts (books, muslim cap, pashmina, sarong and muslimah prayer cloth). These are the winner kids of the quiz:

Also, besides all those, we donate some of the cash as shodaqoh to the orphanage. :)

And these were our crowd :p

Perumpamaan (nafkah yang dikeluarkan oleh) orang-orang yang menafkahkan hartanya di jalan Allah adalah serupa dengan sebutir benih yang menumbuhkan tujuh bulir, pada tiap-tiap bulir seratus biji. Allah melipatgandakan (ganjaran) bagi siapa yang Dia kehendaki. Dan Allah Mahaluas (karunia-Nya) lagi Mahamengetahui." (QS. Al Baqarah: 261)

Maka nafkahkanlah sebagian harta yang sangat engkau cintai di jalan Allah :)
