March 10, 2010 (10-03-10): My 20th birthday (Gosh! I’m 20 now! I’m old!!!).
The night before the day, I should have been finishing my political science paper but I preferred to sleep anyway (yeay, I need some sleep after had a long night with nanda, a single-shot espresso, and those International Political Economy handouts and reading materials. we didn’t sleep all night long just to prepare ourselves for IPE exam). I didn’t even study for the political science exam. LOL. Watta bad way to end my teenager phase.
I slept without thinking whether there would be any birthday wishes or congratulation that sent to my phone or my facebook or my twitter. I don’t know why, but I just didn’t have any interest on that. Those technology advancement, for me, really made the birthday congratulation and wishes are being less meaningful (it’s not meaningless, but less meaningful, got the difference?). Thanks to facebook for reminding people to congratulate me a happy birthday even before the day! So I already got some birthday congratulation and wishes the day before my birthday. Oh, and I got birthday wishes from people that I don’t even know! Wasn’t that cool! Even a stranger knew my birthday!
OK, back to the topic. At 4 a.m. My mom woke me up and she was the first person on earth that congratulated me a happy birthday directly and lots of kisses landed on my face! The second person was my brother who sat next to me and awkwardly congratulated me a happy birthday. After that, my mom was back downstairs and my brother back to his room. And I tried to read some political science notes in my binder. At 8 o’clock, my pop phoned me (my pop works in Jakarta) to congratulated me, and he asked whether I wanted to ask my closest friend to have dinner together (of course I wanted it, dad. But since it was on exams-week, i didn’t think my friends could have dinner with us). The rest of the morning, I opened my facebook and twitter and replied for the birthday congratulations and wishes that sent by my friends. Oh! And I was sooo flattered when I opened my facebook and saw my two beloved best friend congratulated me, not on my facebook wall, but on their status. Thanks darlo, I was so happy!! You guys are so sweet that’s why I love you guys so much!!
I went to campus at 12 o’clock and continued reading my political science notes while having my lunch alone at podjok koffiee (my favorite place to have a meal). I arranged an appointment with Mute to study political science together in order to get A on that subject. So, at 1 o’clock I went to Sentra Kampus to meet mute. Anyway, Mute is a very handsome girl (sometimes I forget that she’s a girl. LOL.). She was the third person on earth who congratulated me then 🙂 not only congratulated me but she also treated me by bought me a cup of fro-yo! kekeke. I love fro-yo so much! Then, we studied together (well, actually she taught me and I just listened to her. kekekeke).
OK, at 2 o’clock we were heading to FISIP building. And looked for the room 3303 our exam room. D’oh. We had couple minutes before the exam started. And voila, at 2:30 the exam started! The exam was OK. I finished my exam then walked out the room and hey! I met Nana and Babed!! Both of them congratulated me!! Next, we were heading to FISIP park. And I saw lots of people there: My friends. I had no idea that they had a very evil idea!!!!
I sat there with ‘em, Gladys came, Babed borrowed my macbook, Nanda insist me to lend her my germany book. But still, I had no idea that they were planing to do such a ferocious thing! Until finally, Babed called me and asked me where did I save the videos of Super Junior. And I came to her, sat next to her, but then… All of my friends moved in a supersonic speed!!! One person hugged me from my back, two persons held my hands, two persons held my legs, one person tied my hair up, one person took some rope, and the others tried to tied me tight on the chair!! Gosh! What would happen??? I got a very bad feeling about this!
What I was afraid of became reality. After I tied tightly on that chair, Bejenk came, brought a bucket full of water, and, yeah! The next thing happened to me was they bathe me! They poured the water. The water was cold anyway. That wasn’t the end. Suddenly I felt something cracked on my head and there was some viscous liquid flowed from my head. No, no, no, that wasn’t my head that cracked. It’s an EGG!!! Ewh!!! DISGUSTING!!!!! If I wasn’t mistaken, there were about three eggs cracked on my head! Was that great??? I thought I was already smell and ugly (ironic, people wants to be pretty on their birthday, but I just became uglier) but for my friends that wasn’t enough! Bejenk came (again) brought a bottle of i-don’t-know-what-is-inside-the-bottle-but-for-sure-it-seems-disgusting, and yeah, you already know what happened next. That oh-my-God-FGS-it-is-so-disgusting liquid was poured to my body!!!! Wasn’t enough with that, they scattered coffee powder to me (thanks God, at least they didn’t scattered ammunition powder)!! I didn’t lie, I looked like a monster!!!!! Finished with that. They innocently left me. And I just sat alone in the park with my limbs tied on the chair, unpleasant smell, wet and disgusting. I tried hard to released my self from the rope but it was just a useless effort. They really have scouting talent, the knot was really hard to be loosen. I was so exhausted by those useless effort in making my self released. Until finally they came again.
This time, they brought a small turtle-cake (it wasn’t a cake made from turtle. it’s a cake in the form of turtle) with three candles on it. They sang happy birthday for me and asked me to blew the candle. But they still didn’t let me go. I still tied on the chair! Poor me.
But after I blew the candle, and they fed me with that turtle-cake. I finally released! Errrr, not really anyway. They just released my hands but then let me loosed the rope by my self. While I loosened up the knot, they calmly sat couple meters from my place. But when I finally released my self, they were all running like deer!!!! SO FAST!!! I tried to catch them (even though I wouldn’t be able to catch them all, at least I got one!). The first person that being caught by me was Gladys. Once I caught her, I hugged her tight and made some dirts on her cardigan (I’m so sorry about that, dear). But, unlucky-me. The others locked them selves in the bathroom so I wouldn’t be able to catch ‘em! While I got so confuse on how to catch the other, I saw Bejenk came toward me and I quickly changed my aim and chased him! He ran so fast! Everybody ran so fast! Even Lisbeth and Bejenk locked them selves in MPM room. Don’t you think it’s unfair??? They locked them selves so I couldn’t catch them!!! But I didn’t give up! I kept knocking on the MPMs door and mimicking ghosts. LOL. I enjoyed it anyway. Kekekekeke.
OK, at the end, I gave up. I ran out of stamina. Carla, Babed and I walked to URS to cleaned me up. Babed walked right in front of me without suspect me doing anything. But she just did a very big mistake because at that time I suddenly jumped and hugged her from back. Hey, I’m a nice friend who loves to share anything including the dirts on my clothes and on my whole body!! Gotcha, dear! OK! I got 2 persons!! Hihihi.
Next, I took a bath in URS bathroom. Without soap nor shampoo. I just cleaned up with water. And finally Nanda came to URS and voila!! I hugged her!!! Gyahahahahahah! Yes! I caught 3 persons!!!! Hihihihi.
Enough with playing. I must prepare to go to Goethe. I had German course at that day. And birthday is not an excuse to miss the class. So I cleaned up (this time using soap and shampoo). But, the next problem was about to come. I didn’t bring change clothes (don’t judge that I am prepare-less! but, hey! once again i repeat: i had no idea that they’d do such a thing!). Maaaan! What should I do? I didn’t even bring any underwear!
So, I really had no choice. I stayed in the bathroom for about an hour. Freezing. Shivering. Waiting for Nana who kindly back to her boarding house to brought me some pair of clothes. Finally here she came! But the bad news was: SHE DIDN’T BRING ME ANY BRA!!! Whaaaa??? I’m not an exhibitionist who loves showing their tits to people!!!! No way! I’m not gonna get out of this bathroom!!!! But, my friends had successfully persuade me to get out from the bathroom by giving me 3 layers of clothes so my nipples would not be shown.
For God’s Sake. It was my 20th birthday. And on the first day being 20, I have to go to my German course without wearing bra. Watta great experience on the first day being 20!
Anyway, being braless was not the end of my day :). I still gotta go to Goethe. I shared some risoles for the whole class and teachers. My Mom and my Pop (who asked for a day-off from work) delivered 3 packs of risoles to Goethe. My friends congratulated me. And Herr Bambang, my German teacher played a happy birthday song for me in class. Danke Herr Bambang :D!!
After the class ended. My Dad, Mom, and My Bro asked me to have dinner with some closest friends. But, like what I said before, it was exams-week. So, most of my friends couldn’t make this. So, it was just Me, Nanda, Babed, and Nana who joined the dinner at Nyonya Rumah.
After the dinner, on my way back home. I received a phone call from: SYENI! Gosh! I missed her like hell! And she phoned me to congratulate me a happy birthday. We talked a lot that nite. I really missed her :(.
Finally we arrived at home. Babed, Nana and Nanda had a sleepover at my home. When I hit my room, guess what I found? A wrapped-small-box on my bed. I excitedly opened the box and. Voila!!!!! A NEW BLACKBERRY FOR ME!!!!! Gemini white!!! I really want that phone badly! So, my blackberry would suit my macbook! It’s all white!! I was so happy. I quickly went downstairs to say thanks to my parents and gave em kisses on their cheek.
Watta great birthdaaaayy!!! I love it!!!! >.<
