A journey to remember

Pasar Malam Pinggir Jalan

Posted on: June 10, 2017

Beberapa kali dalam sebulan, ruas jalan di depan kosan gue langganan dipakai untuk menggelar semacam pasar kaget. Pedagang pakaian, aksesoris, mainan, jajanan pasar, dan bahkan ada juga wahana sederhana untuk anak-anak kecil. Pasar malam di tengah kota Jakarta yang sangat sederhana tapi tidak pernah sekalipun tampak kekurangan pengunjung.

Suatu malam, gue melewati pasar dadakan itu di perjalanan pulang menuju kosan. Dari dalam taksi, gue melihat keluarga kecil berjalan bergandengan. Si anak terlihat gembira dengan balon merah di tangan kanannya. Begitu pula raut wajah ayah dan ibunya. Mereka bertiga tampak sangat bersemangat melihat-lihat barang dagangan yang digelar di sepanjang jalan.

Hanya begitu saja, hari gue saat itu menjadi lebih baik dengan sendirinya. Gue masih saja sering lupa… bahagia itu sederhana. Sesederhana menikmati malam bersama keluarga. Atau sesederhana berbahagia melihat kebahagiaan orang lain.

Sejak malam itu, perjalanan melewati pasar malam yang awalnya terasa menjengkelkan saking ramainya, berubah menjadi terasa menyenangkan. Gue seperti menemukan satu lagi alasan kecil untuk bisa berbahagia.

Find your happiness, start from the little things.

The beauty of diversity. I'm glad that I met them along my career path at Lazada. Just a little help like this could mean everything to me and The Lens Story. Many thanks! ❤️

#friends #friendshipgoals #diversity #photography #photooftheday #canon #snapseed #thelenstory Find someone who loves you properly.
The one who never intentionally let you wait for him.
The one who never makes you have to wonder how he truly feels about you.
The one who will definitely catch you and hold you tight as you fall for him.
The one who gives you all he has to be a better man, to fix what goes wrong, to fight for you and to never let you go.
You are too old for another Mr. Wrong, reward yourself with the right one.
Love yourself enough to leave your past, you deserve better.

#love #life #quote #photography #photooftheday #thelenstory I'm not perfect. I make mistakes. I do the things I'm not proud of. I give up, sometimes. I hurt people, mostly the ones that I actually care about. I have a lot of flaws, but at least, I'm trying hard to be a better person. I'm no saint nor angel, but I'm not a pure evil either. I'm simply a human who is trying to be the very best that I can be. I'll never stop learning, until my very last breath.
