Pendakian Cinta – Merbabu

Setelah penetapan tanggal keberangkatan yang labil akhirnya diputuskan perjalanan kami dimulai tanggal 21 Desember 2013. Aku berangkat pagi dari kosan di Bandung menuju Jakarta Barat, dan sesampainya di terminal Kalideres, sudah berdiri di sana seseorang dengan senyumnya yang hangat menyambut uluran tanganku. Dialah kekasihku, bang Majid. Dia menunggu terlalu lama, sebelum masuk tol Tangerang bahkan dia sudah standby untuk menjemputku, walau disengat teriknya matahari Jakarta, dan sumpeknya atmosfer terminal tapi dia masih bergairah untuk tersenyum kepadaku. Mendengar perutku yang keroncongan dia menawarkan diri untuk mengisi perut dengan mie ayam pedas-manis di sekitar minimarket, rasanya nuampol rek, enak tenan… karena kebetulan sedang lapar.

Everything settled rapidly and all i need to do just to follow my sweetheart’s rules. He was worried i would be tired so i am asked to go earlier and stay at his home. I have no choice but agree it. :p

I spent about a week for vacation with them. Bang Noonk as the driver, bang Iwan as guide leader, Bang Dani, Bang Eky, bang Rey (rosani), and also my sweetheart. At first we fetched bang Roy (another my sweetheart’s friend) at Bumi Ayu. He is the most handsome among the other. Then we were heading Desa Saradan, Pemalang, Central Java to attend bang Bakray’s wedding. Bang Bakray is one of abang’s friend who is in Virapala (Pinggir Rawa Pecinta Alam) too. Unfortunately, I, abang, and bang Noonk couldn’t see their akad/ijab qabul cause i heard that the headman (penghulu) was in hurry. He started it without waiting for the whole family get together.
