Magic Cake (fiction)

My best friend Andy Showed up at my door at 07:30 am. It was strange, but what surprised me most was when he said “hey… did you eat that cake last night ? “
“Ups Andy, what are you doing here ?” I’ve just wake up from my nightmare. “What do you mean cake ? Which cake?” I continued. “That cake, last night I put a piece of cake on the dinner table” he replied to me.
“Oh … I see, yeah.. I was hungry last night. That cake was so nice. I liked it. Where did you buy it ?” I smiled at him.
“Oh gee… do you know something ? O yeah, I forgot to tell you. I got that cake from the old lady in the bar. She came to me and gave me that cake. She told me that someday I’ll understand, she left me with a lot of questions in my mind” he explained of his experience with the strange old lady.
“I didn’t care about her, I don’t believe the myth, about the mystic or something else. But one thing I remember is she told me that she’ll come to my dream and teach me about something if I eat that cake” he continued.

I was stunned and “hey… what are you talking about ? Are you talk about the cake, old lady, dream, etc.. What was that mean ?” “I don’t understand Andy! You must explain to me about it all”. Actually it was weird. I thought it was just a cake, ordinary delicious cake.
“By the way, what happened last night ? Did you have a dream ? “ he asked me.
“Yes of course. I had a nightmare. An old lady with gray eyes came to me. I didn’t know who she was. She told me that I’m her student now. She will come to my dream and teach me about my life, the truth of my life”. Totally, I don’t understand this. Andy didn’t give me any answers. He left me alone in the dark side of my room, part of my head which is always asking questions.

A long the week I lost in my activities. I had tons of jobs in the office. I didn’t have time to think about ghastly thing.
In the middle of the cold night, I slept in front of the fire place. I was so tired. I had a dream and that the old lady came again. She sat beside me and asked me to following her. She brought me to a beautiful house. “This is your house” she told me. “What do you mean ?” I was confused. But I felt familiar with that house. Every nocks and crannies reminded me of my grandmother ‘s house. She brought me to a wonderful garden and took me to a field where the yellow grass grew up. It was one of the most glorious things in this world. She took me to the water fall. I love water falls. I took all my clothes off and jumped to the river. Cold water made me felt free. I loved it … Thanks God !!

Someone voices awaken me, “hey… what are you doing here young lady ? Are you crazy ?” I opened my eyes and that’s when I realized I was standing in the middle of the airport naked

I Proud of MySelf

When I finished my lunch, my friend at office walked to me and said “I proud of myself yesterday”, he smiled at me.
“Wao… It must be something great” – I just replied.

He told me that yesterday he was speaking in English for an hour with someone. – he didn’t wanna share to me the “unknown person” ‘s name, someone special might be… 🙂

Honestly, I’m glad if someone proud of him/herself. Sometimes, we need the courage to admit ourselves is good or we are able to do something. And sometimes we didn’t know our abilities until we try. Based on my experiences, I loved to study, I loved to read books, etc… but sometimes I still felt like a fool, until someone asked me about something and I can explained it clearly and they understood what I mean. Hmmnn, wao… it was me ?? – Yes, I was 🙂
For myself, knowledge about my own self is the most important thing. Without understand about our abilities, our weakness, our strength, etc.. I’m not sure we can survive.

I proud to be my parent’s daughter, I proud to be my brother’s sister, I proud to be someone, I proud to be a Balinese, I proud to be an Indonesian, I proud to be a part of this world, I proud of those persons, I proud of eating rice every day, I proud of drinking water every time, I proud of my life, I proud of myself and I proud of you! 🙂

Dreaming of You

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you and I wish on a star
That somewhere you are thinking of me too

‘Cause I’m dreaming of you tonight
‘Til tomorrow I’ll be holding you tight
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room dreaming about you and me

I wonder if you ever see me (see me)
and I wonder if you know I’m there (am I there, am I?)
If you looked in my eyes would you see what’s inside
Would you even care

I just wanna hold you close but so far
All I have are dreams of you
So I wait for the day (wait for the day) and the courage to say
How much I love you
Yes, I do

I’ll be dreaming of you tonight
‘Til tomorrow I’ll be holding you tight
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room dreaming about you and me

Ahh ahh
Corazón
(I can’t stop dreaming of you)
No puedo dejar de pensar en ti
(I can’t stop dreaming)
Como te necesito
(I can’t stop dreaming of you)
Mi amor, como te extraño

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I still can’t believe
That you came up to me and said
I love you
I love you too

Now I’m dreaming with you tonight
‘Til tomorrow (’til tomorrow) and for all of my life
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room dreaming with you endlessly

(Dreaming with you tonight)
(‘Til tomorrow) With you tonight (‘Til tomorrow)
(I’ll be holding you tight)
(And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be) rather be
(Than here in my room dreaming with you) I’ll be dreaming of you tonight
(endlessly, endlessly)
I’ll be dreaming of you tonight
And I’ll be holding you tight (’til tomorrow)
Dreaming with you (endlessly) tonight
(Endlessly, endlessly)
(Dreaming)
