Yesterday, my mother land was celebrating another year older, she’s 71. Happy birthday for yesterday, Indonesia!
I’m not such a patriotic person that can be a role model. I left my mother land almost 18 years ago, to follow my heart and love. I’m adjusted well in my adopted country. But I still feel like I belong much to my mother land. My love for her is still the same, my disappointment of her still there, and my hope for her to be better and stronger is always always there. One thing for sure, I always love love the food she has! It’s true that you can take an Indonesian out of Indonesia but you can’t take Indonesia out of an Indonesian!
I wish Indonesia all the best for the future. Selamat ulang tahun, dirgahayu Republik Indonesia, stay wonderful as always!
