Bahwa pertemuan dengannya adalah selalu yang terakhir. Setidaknya, aku selalu memperlakukan pertemuan kami seperti itu. Dengan demikian, aku selalu menikmati setiap detik yang kami habiskan bersama, meski hanya duduk diam tanpa ada percakapan apa pun. Aku menikmati keberadaannya di sampingku. Karena setelah itu, tidak akan ada lagi. Mungkin.
Saat ini masih pukul sembilan pagi. Ombak menggulung-gulung datang ke pantai dari tengah laut. Tapi hujan sedang tumpah, jadi kami membereskan alas duduk kami dan berteduh di warung terdekat. Setelah memesan dua gelas kopi instant, kami melanjutkan kegiatan sebelumnya; menikmati laut.
Maybe it’s stupid things (for some people) to read a book while we’re on the beach. But for me and one of my travel soulmates, it’s ‘a little heaven on earth’ thing. Sands, sound of waves, and softly wind; Just a perfect place to hide with books on our hand.
We bought those books while we sat on Made’s Warung at Seminyak, ate our lunch. Yes, you can buy books there, since they have Periplus inside the restaurant. My friend bought a novel from Nicholas Sparks – her fave writer, while I choose The Help from Kathryn Stockett. I dying to read this novel since I watched the movie.
My family and I spent Christmas week in Jogjakarta. My sister did not get off her job and my nephew and his dad went to Hong Kong with his family from Ciledug. So, it’s just the three of us: me, daddy, and my brother. In Jogja, other family members already waiting; aunties, uncle, and cousins. We don’t celebrate Christmas with some party, just get together and pray. The next few days daddy spent time with his sisters, while my brother chose to go to the Klithikan market searching something for his Nikon. I personally spent time with a friend. Since my brother miss beach so bad, we stopped at some beach on the way back home to Jakarta.
This last week of 2011 is the happy week to close the year 🙂
