Sorry to keep you waiting, readers. Due to the slow internet connection, I couldn’t post for some time. But fortunately WordPress is accessible now, so I can publish a post :).
Besides the bad connection, my activities also became the cause of this hiatus. Many things turned out these days, which includes my new blog registration last September. I named it Fluttering Walnut. It’s my first blog on Blogger, and it’s also the first blog I write using Indonesian. Just like in Snow Footprints, the posts I made there are also about my daily life. And, of course, the content there is different from what can be found here. Everyone is welcomed to that site to read my entries in Indonesian.
But aside from that, I have another interesting experience to tell. A wonderful thing happened on last 20th October—I met my old friends :D! Thanks to Kathy; earlier she had invited me to the open house held at St. Nick (my previous school’s name for short). My sister was also invited by her old friend, so we went there together.
In the morning before going to St. Nick, both my sister and I had our reports. Not bad, except for PE. Then I noticed I wasn’t the only student with unsatisfactory mark on that subject; some girls in my class didn’t reach the passing score. We had to accept the truth that just by adding a little mark to our scores, we would have passed on that subject ;).
After having our reports, I and my sister went home to prepare ourselves. We arrived there around ten o’clock. And guess what? I was really touched by the time I reached my old school. It’s been a year since my last visit, and at the moment that building stood in front of me, with many people swarming over it. That nostalgic scenery made my heart pound, meaning I couldn’t wait to meet my old schoolmates…
Firstly I met Gresiella, Kathy, Velda and Jennifer. They were selling iced soy milk, so I bought one from them. Then grade 9A at their shop, selling foods like fried chicken. 9A’s shop was called Warung Te9Al—a modified form of Warung Tegal which means a kind of foods stall, if I’m correct. 9B also sold foods, and just like 7C in the last two years, they included suikiaw in their shop. I tasted the suikiaw, and it’s as good as before!
While I was wondering the whereabouts of my other old friends whom I didn’t met in the moment, my attention was distracted to the stage. The two MCs, Ms. Thessa and another female teacher, proclaimed that the dancing contest was about to begin. It’s a group dancing contest, and the first contestant was the representatives from St. Nick junior high school. To my surprise, they were Marcelline, Silvia, Shella, Angela and Fiona :D! I don’t know why did they performed in their poker faces, but their performance was great.
Even now I’m really thankful that I paid a visit to St. Nick during that day. All my old friends, including the boys, looked so glad by the time they met me. The same thing occurred to me—I was also pleased to see them again :D!
