Farewell Friends..

*Friendship is a flame that burn our heart forever..
_________

When I first came to Australia, I didn't have any friends. For a typical indonesian person like me, an independence situation is not my middle name.. (what ashamed...) 
That's why I often cried alone by myself, next to the wall in my small room. 

Lucky in Mullumbimby, there was a casual teacher, I called him Al. He's the same age as my boy friend. He's a surfer so really opposite to me who really afraid of water or sea. He's got a girl friend, we called her, Millie. Millie is a beautiful woman with a beautiful heart. She's funny and both of them are very romantic! However, our real name, three of us are started  with letter A, that's why we called our friendship triple A. 

Al - Me - Mil



When my teacher, Linda went away to Europe for seven weeks, automatically, I only hanging out with Al and Mil. I was grateful, that they took really a good care of me. They introduced me to their friends, had a party, barbie on the beach.. Besides Al gave me a lift everywhere I wanted, took me everyday to school. We were a great teaching partner!! It's so special. Our friendship grew beautifully.


This morning, I went to a cafe to have brekkie with my home stay parents, I invited Al along, because I didn't know when I'll meet  him again. He's going to Tassie to celebrate Chrissy with Mil, while I head back to Bali - though I knew I'll meet him again sometime in Bali. "At least we have to say goodbye.. "That was the sentence that Al said to me yesterday. 


Breakkie was finished at 10 am this morning, and Al and I had to say goodbye... In Aussie, people hug and kissed the cheek of each other. But, Al and I never did it. Well, I hug him when he had his bday - one day after my bday! (Can't you see why we are really a good friend?? and so special??)  We only shook our hands. He knew I've got a boy friend, and I didn't want Mil got jealous.. :) - even that's only a friendship hug! hahaha.. 


He said many things about me, how wonderful friend was me, how amazing our friendship was, how open were we to each other, our sharing moments, our teaching moments, everything. I felt that I couldn't resist my tears. I never had a friend like  him, who really appreciated me, who really knew me well, who really helped me for everything.. then I became very sad to say goodbye to him. I felt that I didn't want him to say farewell to me.


I just shook his hand and said " Sampai ketemu di Bali ya.. " and he said, "Hey, come on, give me a hug..." We hug each other, and it did feel a good farewell for good friends. I was really tried not to cry in front of him, though I could feel that my voice changed. Lucky I wore my sunglasses, so he couldn't see my tears.
Until I wrote this, I still cried, hahhaa.. 


Hey Al, if you read this, you must be laughing at me.. hahaha!
I will miss our chatty time in your car, 
Our time on the beach with Jhonno, Millie, Mandy. 
I'll miss the funny Owi, 
Our teaching *serious moments.. haha..and teasing the year 7 kids.. 
Our latte and mocca time.. 
Hope we can be friend forever, you're my best Aussie friend!!


Farewell, Al. Miss you already! Send my kisses to Milli. Happy Chrissy. :)

*hugs.
