Do not choose both.
by Taufan S Chandranegara.
I just returned home from a shopping center (mall). Largest Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta, Indonesia. There are a lot of people enjoy the holiday with family in the mall. Nation India, Korea, Japan, America, Britain, and others. In selling various types of food, Europe, Latin America, Indonesia, China, Japan and many more options. Nothing is cheap. Expensive. One glass of coffee costing between 18,000 Rupiah, varied up to the most expensive, depending on the type of coffee to taste.
They are preoccupied with the chatter and bustle respectively. I see Korean men were raising their children, the boy's mother and nanny, seems to be gone for a while. I look around. I see a couple of teenagers, from their accent seems to come from the continent of Australia, not far from where the teenager, India couples were enjoying refreshments. The food court was the name of the place, crowded by the sound of joy.
They are very peaceful. There was no problem in their life, it seems all fine. So why should I pay attention to them. Come alone on Saturday night to the mall. For what I came here for. Running memories come repeatedly. "Looking for inspiration for my second book."
I've published the first book. Monologue anthology titled: "Babad Raja Tega - How could the King Chronicle". In 2005. The story of man to man. The second book, I have not found the right title. Actually not quite right when I said "... looking for inspiration at the mall ...". There are things that are not honest with the phrase sentence. Exactly I was looking into it not honesty. Life there are only two choices. Be true to yourself and others. Or vice versa. But I decided not choose both.
