“Oh, I really do miss you, Indonesia.”
It’s too quiet here. I didn’t celebrate Christmas, but still it was too quiet. Different to Indonesia, South Korea has only a few of believers. Yep, I still don’t know why, but it makes the nuance here is not that colorful as in Indonesia. Christmas eve is just like another Sunday. I don’t know. I just didn’t get any soul of Christmas Eve here.
I miss the chaotic in my country. Indonesia is not a developed country, still a developing country. Indonesia has many problems. Indonesia is not clean. Indonesia is not safe as South Korea or other developed countries. But, Indonesia is the place where I was born. Indonesia doesn’t have snow or spring, but Indonesia has its unique greenness. Indonesia always has the smile. Yes, Indonesia has some tolerance problems. However, I always feel that there’s always a great feeling in every big holiday whether it’s related to religion, nationality, ethnic, and so on. Oh, yes, I really do miss you, Indonesia.
I hope Indonesia could have such a great urban planning as South Korea has. I hope Indonesia could have the free museum for all people. I hope Indonesian could be orderly and organized. But, the more that I want, the more that I miss Indonesia itself. I don’t want Indonesia which has snow. I don’t want Indonesia that has many malls. I just miss the way you are, Indonesia.
#just another random post; another way to treat my yearning for home.
