Although I don't celebrate Christmas, but some of my family members are Catholic. So there's always Christmas party in my relative's house. But that was long time ago, before my parents divorced. Since the divorced, our family was separated between Surabaya-Jakarta. I haven't seen my other family members for ages!! Especially my grandma, Oma Nel.
Oma Nel was good at cooking. She specialized in cakes and pastries. During Lebaran and Christmas, she always prepared various cookies. I used to helped her, although only sprinkled the tops hehehehe. But that was fun activity for a little girl. But that activity ended after my parents divorced. One thing that made me sad, Oma Nel had a diabetes and already took one of her kidney and her sight. So she can't make any delicious cookies years ago.
I just called her today, just to say hi. Well tomorrow is Christmas and those memories suddenly came up. She's 86 now, very fragile age. I thanked God that in this age, she still have spirit, still able to talk clearly, remember clearly. Despite her treatment for her crushed hipbone because she fell about 2 years ago, she's in good condition, not ill. I'm very sad because the last time she saw me when I was in elementary school. Now I'm 25 years and she couldn't see me in my graduation pictures, or my brother's. She couldn't see how me and my brother grow up. I'm sure she only have the image of us as a little boy and girl, not a grown up man and woman.
Finally,,, I received my Super Junior Super Show 2 DVD and poster. Yes, it's Super Junior!!! So here's the story,,,
At the end of October, I was reading some threads in Super Junior forum, SJ World, about the pre-order of the upcoming DVD Super Show 2. I was excited!!! Without further thinking I logged on to YesAsia website. But there's one problem. I don't have credit card... I approached my colleague to borrow his credit card and promised him that I will pay him back as soon as I received my salary hehehe. He said okay. So I registered his credit card and submitted my order. Since it's pre-order, the price only $49.99 because the original price is $69.99 and not with poster. The pre-order version got bonus 1 poster hehehe
The next day, I received confirmation email from YesAsia that my purchase has been approved. My order will be shipped out on 6/11 and expected to be arrived around 14 working days. I looked at calendar and it will come around 22/11 or 23/11. All I have to do just wait the DVD.
Last Saturday 27/11 my brother called me and said that my DVD was arrived at 23/11. The receiver was my grandfather because the whole week my brother stayed at our cousin's house because he must do some treatment for his injured knee. So the package was delivered to my grandparent's house. Yeah we live in same neighborhood. Thank God for that hehehe. I was literally jumped all around my office (yes I was overtime because there's guess speaker in my campus) and shouted with all my heart. I can't wait to be back home for my DVD.
Sunday morning 28/11 I went home with excited feeling. Can't wait to see my DVD hehehe. When I arrived at home, my brother gave me the DVD and the poster. I ripped the plastic and... VOILA! The DVD along with photobook in front of my eyes. I was squealing!!! Then I opened the tube, and there's my poster. All 13 members of Super Junior, very handsome, is in front of me!!! My brother just shook his head. Yeah, he always teased me. But I'm sure one day he will get his karma. But that's another story hehehe. I watched the DVD, it has 2 discs, and very satisfied. All members were HOT!!! I can't stop myself dancing throughout the concert hehehe. I envy Korean ELFs (stands for Everlasting Friends, fandom of Super Junior).
I took the photobook back with me to my rental room. I showed it to my colleagues in the office, especially to my friend that lent his credit card (oh I already pay his bill for this purchase hehehe). For the poster, I decided to bring it to Pancoran around next week. I can't wait to go back home this week to watch the DVD again hehehe
Just an ordinary girl that living the extraordinary life with her extraordinary family and friends
