Looks like not so many people know that "Teristimewa" was written by my dear husband, Abenk Alter. Aside from being proposed in a public place, this single of Andien Aisyah is one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. It has a special meaning for my husband and I. Not only since it is sung by Abenk’s childhood friend, but also because Abenk said that the song came to a realisation inspired by me. At first I thought that he would introduce the song in his solo album, but he didn’t. Instead, he let Andien sings this beautiful song of ours. She even shot the music video in New York with Fimela!
Speaking about love life, I actually haven’t told mine much in this blog. Abenk and I first knew each other from a friend of ours, Deri, during the times when Soulvibe prepared their debut album. He told me a lot about Abenk until we finally met each other at Soulvibe’s photo shoot (we didn’t talk much back then!). Two years passed and God knows why we accidentally met at Pacific Place, and since then we started to contact each other through Blackberry Messenger after I first mentioned him on Twitter. Every time we’re hanging up, my heart would always went BOOM; first because he’d always smelt sooo good and second, the way he looked me in the eye—he’s got a set of beautiful eagle eyes!
After a month of getting to know each other, we’re officially dating. Though the relationship we had was not the so serious one, I later found out that I had a different feeling to him than what I had on my past relationships.
But I can now say that I’m a lot happier than I was before we’re married. Abenk makes me happy. He makes me have a person to get a daily motivation from, and the most important thing is, he comes as a great partner to spend my life with, through ups and downs. Every time I wake up, I’m always thankful for having Abenk beside me. Never I forget to kiss and give him a hug while whisper, “I love you” (though he doesn’t seem to listen since he’s usually still sleeping). Sometimes I pray for us to die together, thus there would be none of us being left alone :)
I wouldn’t deny that we had our bad days and I dare to say that even though we’re married, we’re not always see everything eye to eye. But those were nothing because we went through it together. We complete each other. There’s the fun thing about us: Abenk is a Pisces and I’m a Libra, which according to our zodiac signs, we’re totally not made for each other!! Just like, “I don’t get you” hahaha. But whatever the zodiac says, that has no proves since we’re in love and have commitments and that is all.
To me, my husband is not only a husband who leads me or pays the bill. Mine is my 24-7 partner, or I could say that he is the bestest friend that I could ever ask for. Abenk is my Teristimewa besides my parents.
So, how about you? Who’s the person you consider as "teristimewa" besides your parents? :)
