2010 was another great year for me, I will tell you some milestones or interesting parts of this year instead of telling all things I’ve experienced in one post. This is the first post, proudly , introduce you with “THE GANGS”. 😀
*bahasa mode on*
Agak lupa sebenarnya bagaimana kelompok ini dibentuk, tapi konon suatu siang setelah hampir semua murid pulang ke rumahnya masing-masing ada beberapa guru yang bosen gila. Malas buat bekerja (loh?) akhirnya ada tiga guru memutuskan untuk mengganggu seorang guru yang lain which is our Head of Upper School- Mr Strickland. Nah kita bertiga kaya orang gila jumpalitan membentuk gerakan-gerakan aneh di depan ruang kelas yang dipakai Mr. Strickland buat ngasih tutor tambahan Biologi. Setelah tidak berhasil membuat dia tertarik ama gerakan-gerakan pagan kita, kita menyerah and mencari korban berikutnya. Mr Borg –guru Bible gila- yang giliran dapat jackpot kali ini. Kita segera ke atas dan melakukan hal gila lainnya buat ngegangguin ini guru. Tapi sekali lagi gagal, Michael ga bergeming sama sekali. Kita semua berkonsolidasi untuk memikirkan langkah-langkah selanjutnya demi keberlangsungan kelompok kita. Akhirnya kita putuskan untuk membuat kelompok gangster supaya kegiatan gila kita lebih terorganisir. Dan terlahirlah The Gangs (baca : jalan-jalan kecil :p) yang masih beranggotakan Susie Huang (aka “The Don”), Adit, and Yoel (aka “The Demolition”). Ketika rapat rahasia sedang berlangsung Joseph tiba-tiba lewat, demi memperbesar pengaruh, kita putuskan untuk mengajak dia ke dalam the Gang dengan nama resmi “White Monkey King” (aka Raja Monyet Putih). :p Tindakan illegal kita tampaknya tercium ama kepala Upper School, and Mr. Strickland berhasil memergoki kita sedang kasak-kusuk . Agak terkejut, secara spontan gw ajak dia buat masuk ke keanggotaan kita. Gratis! Tanpa harus membunuh siapapun sebagai syarat keanggotaan. Even gw uda siapin nama buat dia “The Jawless Fish” – mengingat kegemaran dia akan biologi. Sayang seribu sayang dia menolak.
Setelah kejadiaan itu anggota kita beberapa kali bertambah –walo perlu ditekankan kalo kita selektif dan tidak menerima semua orang!-. Keberhasilan pertama ketika kita berhasil merekrut High School Principal aka Ms. Memey. Pertamanya dia menolak nama “Xena” tapi dia tetap mau join gang kita. Then, Mr. Chandra aka Pican jadi anggota terakhir yang bergabung untuk taon ajaran 2009/2010 waktu itu. Awal tahun ajaran 2010/2011 kita menahbiskan Nathan Weinbaum sebagai anggota terakhir kita. So inilah the Gangs lengkap dengan skillnya masing-masing untuk menancapkan pengaruh di Cahaya Bangsa Classical School and misi utama untuk menggulingkan mr. Teg*h suatu saat dari posisi Head of School suatu saat (loh?). Khusus buat blog ini gw bakal kasih tau identitas sebenernya mereka, super secret! Akakaka. These are the complete list of The Gangs 7 Member :
Ms. Susie Huang aka The Don aka History Teacher (10-12th Grade)
Ms. Memey aka SOR Principal
Mr. Adit aka History Teacher (7-8th Grade)
Mr. Yoel aka “The Demoliton” aka Math Teacher (10-12th Grade)
Mr. Chandra aka Pican aka Math Teacher (7-8th Grade)
Mr. Joseph Mikler aka “The White Monkey King” aka LA/Rhetoric Teacher (11-12th Grade)
Mr. Nathan Weinbaum aka LA Teacher (9-10th Grade)
Kegiatan rutin kita cukup menyeramkan and sadis (Ssst! This is another super secret information) mulai dari makan-makan, jalan-jalan ke kota lain, party, atau bahkan sampai jalan-jalan ke eko mart buat membeli barang-barang rahasia. Akakakak. I really enjoy spend crazy time with them. Each of them has their own uniqueness.

Susie is a snack lady, she always bring a lot of food to school everyday. She is always hungry and eats a lot of food. Make me feel jealous when I see her slim body. World is not fair. Married to an Indonesian rich man, actually she works in school not for living/money, I think she just wants some activities and friends. She got it! But she is always reluctant to live in Indonesia (she always complains about Indonesian environment, government, systems, etc) and always want to come back to State. However, she is really fun woman, very expressive , and full of passion. She has a big heart toward her best friends (us!). Thank you Susie for all of your love and snacks of course :p.
Ms. Memey is our principal. She is like a mom for us. Susie is the one who always teasing her to find a husband. Once, I match her with one of my friend. Akakakaka. She really likes travelling and trying a lot of food. She is quite wise when she must handle students’ problem and encourage her faculties to do excellent job. She is also very generous. treat me many times! Hehe
Adit is our new couple. He just married last year. Congrat dit! When I can be an uncle for your offspring? (Offspring? Emank pet..:p) He is quite CRAZY (literally and explicitly) and I enjoy to share some craziness time together with him. He is the only member of the Gangs who I can speak Javanese in our conversation because He comes from Semarang. Sometimes he seems cranky, but we as his friend has been already used to with that. Hheheh.I love to have some conversation with him, bcoz he is quite mature and inspiring (sometimes..akakak :p). Love you dit! Sayang lu udah bukan bachelor lagi, ga bisa gila2an lagi. akaka.
Mr. Chandra is my old friend. We have been a friend for quite a long time, maybe 5 years since I studied at Bandung. I should admit that we have a lot of difference, in our style of working, in way of thinking, and how to respond things. However, I think we are in the stage when we just know it and respect it because that what a family is, I think. Every morning I always have breakfast in his classroom –sometimes with additional krupuk and pork floss- hehe.
Joseph is a unique man. He is very clever –in an unique way- and creative –in an unique way also-. I don’t know, I cannot describe it. I always tease him as an emo man because once he told me that he just went to Lembang to see a sunset. Akakka. He always joke me as a Chinese man.”Hey Chinese! Have you eaten noodle, played badminton, and learnt kung fu?”. His laugh is also unique, his imagination is another thing. Generally he is a super-duper one of a kind.
Nathan is the last member. He is very friendly and cooperative. As 10th Grade homeroom teacher (he is 10B HR Teacher, I am 10A HR Teacher), he usually the one who very get in to the school event. Heheheh. He likes music so much and somehow likes to dance also. First, when I saw him I wonder why his style is so unique. One of my friend said it is a New York style. Akakak. Yes, he comes from New York and maybe we can say the he is a “cool-guy-from-New-York”. It is really fun to know how crazy he is. Last New Year Eve he did a crazy thing. Celebrating New Year, he and some of his friends dressed like polar bears and run crazily to the sea. Crazy! Rolling Stone Magazine (CMIIW) captured his crazy picture in that suit (Why Polar Bear? Not a Santa Claus or Uruk Hai).
It is a honor to know them. I really enjoy each fun activities with them. School without them is not complete. I am looking forward for another crazy activity with them. (Our Next trip will be on mid semester break on March, we will go to Thailand! This time I will become a real backpacker not like my previous trip. Heheheh). Thank you for everything guys!
