The Man Behind the http://ndobos.com/

A quotes which suit pak dhe (uncle) Mbilung description is taken from one of my favorite  movies, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin:

“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.”

  1. sumringah! *ngelanjutin mbakdos*

  2. Dia orang baik. Dulu begitu semoga sekarang juga.🙂

    • …dan konon katanya juga agak sedikit cerdas.

      • Agak lumayan sedikit cerdas? Ah jangan merendah. Harus pede dan congkak. Kemarin ada teman, namanya Wi, mau berangkat sekolah. Lantas ditanya kenapa sekolah, dia jawab biar pintar. Saya garis bawahi, “Biar pintar seperti Antyo.” Seumur-umur saya belum pernah sekemlinthi dan sedusta itu.

  3. Mas Paman, Dik Wi memang kodratnya begitu. Walaupun dulu itu dia tidak pandir, tetapi dia perlu didustai agar sedikit lebih pandai. Celakanya, hanya dusta Mas Paman yang dia percayai sebagai kebenaran. Tak apa, toh itu membuat Mas Paman bahagia. Tidak ada yang dirugikan.

  4. bocah tua yang nakal, begitu kami biasa menyebutnya. ga usah pusing dengan label membingungkan “bocah dan tua”😀

  5. nah yaaaaaa!!!
    *dubber mode on*

  6. wooooogh percakapannya paman dan pakde di atas sungguh menarik. Cuma mereka yang bisa bercakap-cakap seperti itu! *hail*😆

  7. Wonderful blog! I definitely love how it’s easy on my eyes and also the data are well written. I am wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which need to do the trick! Have a nice day!
