Happiness is Homemade

First of all, I’d humbly say Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil ‘alamin. I’m so grateful that ‘Happiness is Homemade’, book written and illustrated by me has officially been published by Bentang Pustaka.

Apa Benar Bahagia Itu Sederhana?

Waktu main, sambil senyum-senyum saya bener-bener mau mengucap, “Bahagia itu sederhana ya.” Namun saya nggak enak sama suami yang sudah repot-repot berburu mainan-mainan ini sepulang kantor sampai ke beberapa gerai McDonalds. Pulang kerja, capek, inginnya buru-buru pulang minum teh hangat eh ini harus mampir-mampir dulu, terus sampai rumah harus makan ayam dan kentang McD lagi. RIBET YA. Kasihan suami saya, harus bersusah-susah untuk mendapatkan apa yang akan saya kasih hashtag #bahagiaitusederhana :’) Jadi apa betul bahagia itu sederhana? Seberapa sederhana yang kita sebut sederhana?
