Through Every Dark Night, There’s a Bright Day After That

The clock strikes twelve on March 27th, January and February just left so fast and will followed by March in 4 days. Oh God, didn’t expect I’ve been here for almost 1.5 years. Life is getting hard, but I never forget to always gratefull for all the things You (Allah) have given to me.

In this midnight with my Ebooks with me I have to keep awake to finish this chapter.

Night……, It’s started getting cold, quiet night, silence……., the moon is hiding behind the building, the street begin to empty, people are asleep. Try to keep awake with music, but this get me distracted I can’t concentrate, running around and stretching ? it won’t help, i don’t drink coffe, i don’t have any soda. God help me to stay awake. keep my eyes open don’t let me fall asleep.

For the good living, for the people I care and I love. “through every dark night, there’s a bright day after that”. No matter how hard it gets.

Abu Dhabi – The Capital City of UAE

Its been over a month, i never update my blog again, i do wanted to share my story but part of my job makes me little bit lazy to write even to open my blog. First of all, i would like to say happy ramadhan, happy fasting time, minal aidzin wal faidzin for all the moslems people in the world. may this month be peaceful month for all, amien.

Actually…I haven’t much story to tell you about, but the best moment i had when we were visiting to one of the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates. July 3rd 2010, that was my first time went to Abu Dhabi,  since i’ve been here 11 months ago, the distance from Sharjah to Abu Dhabi the capital city of UAE (about more than 2 hours by car) makes me little bit lazy to go there, instead some friends said that Abu Dhabi also isn’t very interesting to visited.

There is no many place we could visited in Abu Dhabi, especially when the weather is not friendly, that time its almost reach 45-50 degree celcius during day time. Qornish is a loved one but it’s very hot and seems not a good way to have fun in open place. So we were deciding to go to Sari Rasa, one of the best indonesian restaurant in Abu Dhabi.

Sari Rasa is one of the best indonesian foods in UAE, beside Sari Nusa (Dubai) and Kafe Betawi (Dubai). as i have posted on my blog about Kafe Betawi, Sari Rasa is the good ones more delicious i think than Kafe Betawi. I served some indonesian foods like sambal ati kentang, kikil, tahu isi and es teler.



After finished our lunch we went to Al Zayed Mosque, according wikipedia Sheikh Zayed Mosque was named after Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founder and the first President of the United Arab Emirates, who was buried at the Mosque site after his death on 03 November 2004. The Sheikh Zayed Mosque is the third largest in the world according to the General Secretariat Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC), the Research Centre for Islamic History, Art and Culture in Turkey. The two mosques in Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia are larger. you may search on google if you want to know more about the history of Al Zayed Mosque :).

Burj Khalifa – The Highest Tower in The World

Buhamra Building Room 401

2009 was a good year. I think each year my life has been better than the one before it. I’m sure there have been a few exceptions, but I always find myself at the end of the year thinking I am happier than I was the year prior. And as long as I think that, who really cares if it’s true or not? I can only say Thanks to You God for what you has given to me..So yes, 2009 was a good year. And yes, I expect 2010 to be better. Amin !!!

New year is not so special for me, its not because I dont want to celebrate the day, its just because i’m not used to celebrate New Year’s eve, if I want to i can do it, but i prefer celebrate it with my family rather than do something that wasting my time, so sad, iam far away from home :(…Yap the turn of the year on early January I was busy looking for an apartment and moved into a new apartment.

Looking for a new apartment is little bit difficult, especially for those who want to have better place to live, About living cost ? of course each emirates have different offers about the cost living. how much money you will spent and saving per month is depends on the rent you will have to pay, how many persons living in the apartment, how much water and electricity will be used, AC consumer, and your life style of course.

Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the most expensive city in the Middle East. Many people think rents in those both city would be less, for me that’s not true. I think people who living in Dubai and Abu Dhabi are the people who have more income or facilities from their company. A one bedroom apartment in Abu Dhabi or Dubai costs around Dhs 40.000 to Dhs 60.000, without any furniture.

In Sharjah, rent for a apartement its about 25.000-30.000 AED for a year, thats only for studio without room with size aproximately 6x6m, if we want to get apartement with one room or two rooms, furnished or semi furnished.of course the more money we have to spent for this.

The cheapest cost living we can find in Ajman its about 15.000-20.000 AED a year for studio, but i think u understand the reason why living in Ajman is quite cheap . one of them because its far from others emirates. In Sharjah we just need only 15-30 minutes to get to Dubai.

My New Apartment

My New Apartment

Finally, after searching several apartments, actually its only 2 apartments LOL, we decided to rent apartment in Sharjah with various of reasons, I Think this is still expensive for us because previously we shared the room with 4 others people now its only me and Firman.

And guess where we are choose to living in? ya in Buhamra Building, the same apartment building where iam living before but now iam moving to room 401, and this is the second apartment I live in since four months ago i was live on the same apartement in 606.

The apartment where iam living now i thinks is quite comfortable, the balcony faces parking area, down here at the same building is almadina supermarket, soo i dont have to go too far to buy something, and the mosque is about 50 meters from here.

I live here with my friend Firman, he is from Indonesia too, living with other people we already know or at least behave better, more is needed in UAE’. Lived alone in a apartment would be very quiet. Life here is dry and very individualistic. Every person every day just busy with work and other consumer lifestyle, shopping, clubbing, and other entertainment activities. For singles who live in Dubai, a very severe test hee .. especially for the boys. xixi

It all Goes Wrong !!!

Dear A and R

Sory since you called me that time i never hear about you again, even when i decided to go to UAE, i was never even in a few words to say goodbye to you. i just surprised when the last time you called me and you said “i don’t know we can meet again or not” that day i just feel like u don’t need our friendship anymore.

For A, you know when I have a crush on R, since high school, u always support me to get closer to her, but the thing that I don’t understand why you lied to me about this, why you are lied to yourself that you have the same feelings about her, why dont u tell me about this earlier, because it was so paintful for me to hear that.if i knew this before i would give up for you bro.

bro, i never mean to do bad things to you, i do care about you bro, actually it took a several month for me to feel myself again, and to risk my heart to you bro. By the time I had done that, I felt I had learned one more lesson about myself. I also felt more compassion toward others from whom I had, myself, disengaged in my lifetime. when i miss u bro i just dont have an encourage to reach on you.

For R, you are the special one in my heart too, you’re the only girl I want to meet when I came back to my hometown, i knew from the start that we are different, i knew my heart for you is become this far. my mind is always told me to stay away from you, but my heart always cry out, finally after all of this i realize that we only be
just a friend. thanks for what u have done for me for all your kindness. i hope u will find your truly soulmate. A or whoever he is.

For both of you. forget Everything that ever happens to us, A this is not your fault, neither do R, this is the biggest mistake i ever done in my life. iam the only one who must responsible for all of this, I feel guilty about it especially when I read this message iam kind of speechless and my heart was so paintfull, I just realized that
I miss someone who i have promised him to always support each others when one of us fall down. forgive me for what iam doing in the past, I’m sorry because iam so selfish with the two of you.

i hope someday the three of us will be together again in the same or different line, no matter with who we are belongs to, because this friendship’s so much more is cheap, friendship’s more deep for me.

whatever happened with the two of you in the future, both of you always and always be my best friends, This is the journey of our life,,, one day we will smile and laughed at all of this.

Best Regards
