"It's only through writing that I've ever been able to suppress life's personal disappointments. When I can't write I feel anxious and out of sorts and am easily riled, though I'm usually able to control my emotions..."
- Pramoedya Ananta Toer (The Mute's Soliloquy: A Memoir)
["Hanya dengan menulis aku mampu menekan segala kekecewaan peribadi hidup. Bila aku tidak menulis, aku merasa cemas & tidak keruan serta mudah gusar, walau selalunya aku bisa mengawal emosiku..."]

I have been living for 32 years. Love is what I know since the day I started to collect memories. Till today I believe in love but to be honest, I'm not really sure if love really into me. Not that I never fall in love but to be exact, I never know how to be devoted to love for someone.

Lucky for those who can be in love like a pair of dove and still in love till death do them part. But for me, I have another kind of love in my personal dictionary. I love my talent, I love my job & I love people. I fancy charity work where I can help people & love them. But till today I still haven't find the right time to do such things. But I'm very grateful that my work can at least make me do some sort of charity.

Working as a writer & a comic artist makes me able to touch them without even I have to know them. They are invited to my artworks & writing. By that, I can share all of what I want to share with them. Anything that can make me help them through their life, entertain them & at the same time they are helping me by being a strong person. How is that?

What makes me able to write or draw is people's life experience. I saw them on TV, magazines & during I'm out there with public. Seeing them is like seeing myself, understanding myself. I'm just another human being, I make mistake & I make amend. How I amend? I quote people failure or success & learn from the best.

When you love what you see, that's mean you love what u get. Understanding love is simple, but defining & practice it into your life is not easy. Love need motivation, dedication & understanding. Of all that, love is where we should belong.

Maybe one day I'm gonna love someone. I believe there will be someone for me. Well, don't matter if I'm 32 & still couldn't find love. Because I'm not in a rush.

I'm 32 & still look OK. But anyway, I don't care about look. This is the perceptions that I don't like about some people. They love you because they love your look. Is that fair enough to be in love? Part of it yes.

When in love with someone, you want to look good for that someone. You want to make sure that your lover feels so proud to have you. Though maybe he/she doesn't really care of how you look, but just remember, appreciate your lover by looking good all the time.

Does that look have anything to do with perfect body or perfect hair? No! Looking good means good hygiene, good health & smells good. Don't tell me you wanna fall in love with someone who has a bad breath & smelly feet?! Well, some people have that kind of fetish. But for me, I prefer to fall in love with proper people who knows what's the meaning of 'LOVE YOURSELF'.

Love knows no boundaries. You can be black, white, yellow or even purple. When you are in love, such things don't matter anymore. Most important thing is just be yourself & they will come to you.

What else about love? Love reminds us of Valentine Day &a that falls on my birthday.
