Fajar’s Last Bodyjam® Class

It’s April 30th, 2012 – Monday, The last day of April – Fajar’s Bodyjam® Last Class. We’re having class in Fitness First Taman Anggrek. He also did some Bodyjam® Last classes in another clubs. We all want to feel the moment with him before he leaves the stage.

We’re wearing colourful outfit and arrange a cool Bodyjam® playlist for the members. I did the first block and Fajar did the second block. The class is going well although there’s no mic. I feel great with it. The members have changed. A lot of new people don’t know who is Fajar, some of them might be the first and the last time join the Fajar class. But they seem happy and enjoy the class.

At the end of the class when Fajar’s presenting the last track (groove down) from Bodyjam® 40 (I don’t feel like dancin’- Scissor Sisters)-> he chose it on purpose grrr!, I gave him the surprise! Wah! I melted and face down on my knees, haha can’t help it, cried.. >Cough< >cough<

Fajar opened the gift, He’s happy! He loves it! I’m glad 😀 . All members come to the stage and greet him, wish him a good luck and asking him why he quits Bodyjam®. They’re now feeling close with fajar. We’re taking pictures together. I love to see all the happy faces.

I also gave him the original sketch. He was surprised with the detail especially the cupcakes with the love heart icons (Thanks for Astrid :D). Til now I’m still hoping he’ll back again on the stage.

Good luck, Fajar! 
Thank you 

Gift for Fajar’s Bodyjam® Last Class

Fajar Kusumaputera is a Bodyjam® instructor of the 3rd generation in Fitness First Indonesia. He pass as trainee with Bodyjam® release 39 in 2007 and be a great superstar Bodyjam® instructor in Fitness First Indonesia.

For me he is a great role model in Bodyjam®, a great dancer, a leader, a cute and funny friend. When I’m in the part of Bodyjam® team. We shared in creativity to makes the Bodyjam® BOOM!! That was fun! And I like to ask his suggestions and critics on the Bodyjam® event (Example: The Bodyjam™ Musical and The Turbulence).

He is also my ex-Bodyjam™ Headteacher. I love to be part of Bodyjam® team together with him. All the fun and creativity that we’ve been through. Now he decided to resign as Bodyjam® Instructor that shocked the team. 😦

I think he has his personal reasons to decide it. He said he’ll keep dancing with us but not as instructor.. April 2012 is his last month of teaching, his 5 years career of Bodyjam®. From Bodyjam® 39 to Bodyjam® 60.

Days before the end of April 2012, suddenly I heard that Fajar was doing the Bodyjam® Last Class. The idea was from Fitness First Pluit Village members requested him to come and teach with Anthony. I WANT!! I check my schedule and YES! At the very end of April – 30th April 2012 is Monday. I have a class. I contact Fajar and Maria (The GXM) for the Special Class with Fajar. She approved and Fajar agreed.

I’d like to make something for him, Just a few day before Monday. I browsed the facebook to secretly download his photo. I’ll draw an illustration for him. Always a great challenge to draw face. Feel worry if the drawing is not look the same like the model/photo. I try my best to scratch and shade it. Voila! I think it’s good. Then the next challenge is the body. I’m not good at it. Actually I’d like to make him jumps or some dynamic move, failed 😦 . Then end up just standing + pose with our Bodyjam™ jacket and holding a cupcake. Why cupcake? Fajar has started a business, “GUILTY PLEASURE – It’s sinfully delicious!. He bakes and makes cupcakes and cakes. I’ve tried the cookies, It’s delicious! This is the progress of my gift. I have some friends to discuss when I’m working on this gift, Thank you for Debby, Astrid and Rudi who give me the critics and data that I need.. *hugs

The last day in Medan. I’ll go back to Jakarta at 8.00 pm. My sisters were going to work, so I’ll spend my time with my mom. Meet Mr. Sarman again for the wedding organizer stuffs. Then the topic continued to the dress/night gown for the wedding reception. Mr. Sarman suggested it’s better to make the dress than rent it. Rent a dress is expensive and sometime it’s hard to find a good design and size that fit the body. Making or design a dress/gown can be more comfort, satisfying and own the dress itself.

I just remember I had a friend who works as Professional Fashion Designer. His name is Fonti Ferryza. I call him Ferry. He’s also a close friend of Mr. Sarman. So we’re going to see him. Just a short introduction, then Ferry starts to sketch a design for my mom. I think it’s a beautiful dress. I can see my mom loves the design. She asked to make 1 more design. She’ll look great with it.

After that, we’re just spending time meeting aunt and close friends. Go back to home and take a bath. Then buy some Bolu Meranti for my friends at Jakarta. Go to the airport.. And depart.

Go back to Jakarta. Go back to the routines… I’ll be back again in July 2012, for my Brother’s Wedding day. See you again..

Love you, Mom, Wie, Min, Ben..

After a few weeks, My mom took my sisters to meet Ferry again. Ferry will also design dress/gown for my sisters. I can’t wait to see them wearing the dress.

All designs are own by Fonti Ferryza.

It was a happy time last night. The next day, my mom, sisters and me are going back to Medan. My sisters have to work  and I’ll go back to Jakarta on Monday. We have one day to spend together. And my sister suggested to go to Brastagi, Tanah Karo – a city on the hill.

It’s been along time, the last time I remember that I’ve been there is when I was in the high school. I wanna go there. Yes decided! It takes about 1-2 hours to reach there from Medan. I’m so excited! Feel like a little boy going to a vacation. Love to see the trees and monkeys.. Feel the cool air.. I’m so happy.

Arrive!!! Then we’re having lunch.. A restaurant that specialist of roasted pork. They sell by amount of weight. 1 kg roasted pork cost only IDR 60.000,- It’s enough for 4 of us. It tastes good! Especially with the cool air and hot tea. It’s perfect!

After lunch, we went to the temples. Brastagi’s temples are so beautiful. The first one is Vihara Dharma Shanti. Nice temple with a lot of beautiful ’round ball’ flowers, mountain lilies, Buddha statues, and Buddha quotes. Love it!! We took some pictures and pray for blessing. As usual, some silly pictures… and cool picture when we put our glasses on!

Hey! We’re the secret agents!

After that, we’re going to the 2nd temple, Taman Lumbini. We kinda lost to find it. Driving through the strawberry and vegetable farm, and finally we saw a tall Golden Thai style pagoda, that’s the temple! Wow! It’s magnificent! *Jaw dropped! I don’t feel like I’m in Indonesia. Feels like Thailand! When we arrived, the temple’s almost close, we only have 15 minutes before 5 pm. We rushed in and took as much pictures as we can. We don’t have time to enter inside the temple. Sigh~ Lucky to visit the temple.

My Favorite spot, A cabbage farm.. They’re growing fresh, big, green and natural.  Thanks a lot for my sister, Min who took this pictures for me.. I love it so much !!

After that, we’re on our way back to Medan. It’s raining! We’re stuck, it took about 1-2 hours then we finally knew that there’s trees fell on the road. And the people were stopping the cars to collect the money instead of moving the trees first.

We’re hungry, I was craving of Dim Sum Babura (Ayong) – (I’ve mention it in my previous post). Fortunately, It’s still open when we got there at 9 pm, but actually it’s feel better to eat Dim Sum in the morning. Ather that, It’s time to go home and rest…

Good morning! I woke up and had my breakfast, Mom’s Homemade Ba Cang, Ahh this is my favorite food. Usually I bought it but now finally I can eat my own mother’s handmade after waiting for so long. So delicious !!

It’s a good cloudy weather. We have to go to the cemetery for Qingming Festival. There’s a lot of offerings, fruits and foods to bring there. We prayed our father and ancestors. Burning paper gifts for the departed. It’s an oppurtunity to remember and honour them.

After finish, we’re back home and go visiting our relatives. Then we’re going to the marketplace to buy the ingredients for dinner. My mother’s going to cook seafood for me. She knew I loved seafood. She bought some fishes and prawns. We saw ‘Udang Galah’ (Big headed prawn / King Prawn), It’s very delicious (especially the head). We seldom eat this king prawn. It costed IDR 150.000/kg. My mom asked me Did I want it ?, too expensive.. I said no, but they knew I want it because they notice whenever I called them I always mention King Prawn for dinner when I’m in Jakarta, so my sister kindly buy it for me. Wew.. I’m touched! For 1 kg, we got 5 Great Prawns.

Go back home and my mom’s starting to cook. We also invite Ben’s fiance, Dewi and our close friends. Hmmm, what do we have here ? Check it out!

And it’s also the perfect time to enjoy the delicious durian pancake that I bought from Medan… mmmm~

The best part is the family gathering, dinner at the same table, chattering and take a lot of silly photos. It makes us feel young and happy. A lot of laughter and joy. Delicious foods, Happy Family..
