A Conversation

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim

Pada tanggal 16 august kemarin kantorku mengadakan buka bersama di Hotel Mulia. Setelah selesai, saya (bersama teman) mengantri taksi di lobby hotel. Di belakangku ada seorang perempuan (bersama temannya) yang tampak ingin menunggu taksi juga, lalu kutanya, “are you waiting for taxi?, you can stand here, this is the waiting line”. Oya, dia berwajah kearab-araban, makanya saya ajak dia bhs inggris, dan ternyata dia faham beberapa kosa kata indonesia namun lebih lancar berbicara dalam bahasa inggris. Lalu kami pun ngobrol, rupanya dia berasal dari Arab Saudi dan sedang kuliah Master di Australia. Dia hendak pulang ke Saudi dan pesawatnya transit di Indonesia dan Singapore. Well, we talked much, about 10 minutes before my taxi come. It was a nice conversation. And I think that it is interesting and great that a woman from Saudi is eager to travel that far, from Saudi to Australia, to study.

Then I remember my own willingness to go to Europe. I wanna see UK, I wanna see London. I love hear them speak, I like their accents, terdengar lebih sopan, lebih bertatakrama, lebih terstruktur, and mainly because it sounds very posh and sophisticated. Sometimes I’ll go there InsyaAllah. But firstly, saya mau berkunjung ke negara teman baruku diatas, Saudi, it’s in my first priority now. As my mother told me to prioritize umroh then travel to Europe. We’ll see, insyaAllah, semoga semua dimudahkan, dilancarkan, dan diberkahiNya.

Wassalam.
