Selamat Pagi, Siang, Petang, Malam!

Saya namanya Ramadhan Putera Djaffri. Sekarang bekerja di Samuel Aset Manajemen. Sebelumnya berkuliah di Fakultas Ekonomi Universitas Indonesia, menempuh pendidikan IPS di SMA Labschool Kebayoran, pulang-pergi naik sepeda saat bersekolah di SMP Al-Azhar 8 Kemang Pratama, seorang anak jemputan saat belajar di SD Bani Saleh 1, dan pernah dihajar rantai sepeda motor saat menghabiskan masa balita di TK Mini Pak Kasur.

Segala tulisan di Volgorian Cabalsette ini seharusnya sih hasil kreasi saya, kecuali yang saya sebutkan sumber lainnya. Karena itu saya harap Anda juga bisa menghormati dan selalu meminta izin atau setidaknya memberi saya kredit tiap kali mengutip. Ayo hindari plagiarisme sejak mula!

Soal sejarahnya sendiri, yang bisa saya ingat ada tiga semboyan Volgorian Cabalsette hingga kini. Pertama adalah "The Safest Place On Earth" yang sekarang jadi milik Volgorian Nopales. Kedua adalah "Berpikir Subjektif Tidak Membantu", yang kemudian berevolusi menjadi "Pemikiran, Ucapan, Tindakan" karena menurut saya tanpa aksi tidak ada realisasi.

Pun setelah sekian lama menggunakan semboyan ketiga, nampaknya saya harus kembali kepada semboyan kedua, karena lebih orisinil dan lebih saya. Terlebih lagi setelah semboyan itu sempat disebut-sebut kembali oleh rekan seperti Mirza dan Aditya.

Lainnya, saya akan sangat bahagia jika Anda memberi donasi uang kepada saya. Tidak bersedia? Kalau sekadar kesan, pesan, komentar, keluhan, cacian, dan makian mau kan? Tidak perlu banyak, saya hanya ingin tahu apakah memang ada yang membaca.

Terima kasih telah berkunjung. Nikmati dunia saya!

Monday: Tell Me Why

There she comes. She's a bit early, it's only 12:40. Anyway, now I'll tell you about this girl.

Her name was Martha and on Mondays she comes alone. The first thing she - always - does is washing her hands at the sink on the left of the entrance. Then, she would walk steadily to the counter to order two cups of hot cappuccino - one for her, one for her fiance. I know it's for her fiance because once she happened to talk on the phone and saying a guy name, Rod, passionately. And that's it. Two cups weren't that much a waiting, so it won't be long until she disappears. See you tomorrow, Martha. Sometimes I wish she would lose her balance and spill the coffee so I could help a bit, but I guess she's better than that.

The rest of the hours was uneventful, until the sun went down. The Blue Hogs were supposed to be playing tonight, but it's already 8.00 and not even their most punctual member, Brad, the bass player, was there. As the result, some drunken gentlemen in suit stepped to the stage and started their own show. At first, I thought it would turn out to be a disaster, but it's quite good actually. All was alright except for the dude on drums who fainted after a 6-minute solo at the end of the show.

"Ben, we're closing. Heh."

That was Vince. Well, I guess that's Monday. I hope the next Monday will be better.



P.S. Martha didn't wear a skirt today. Tell me why?
