"Bunga tersayang...jauh di negeri orang membuat hati menjadi sedih dan terharu, terutama pada momen indah idul fitri. Papa dan Mama ingin berkumpul dengan Bunga, tapi keadaan tdk memungkinkan. Mudah-mudahan tahun depan Bunga sudah dapat berkumpul kembali dengan keluarga di Yogya. Bersama ini Papa titipkan *......censored* untuk membeli yang Bunga inginkan, hitung2 untuk beli baju atau kue lebaran. Salam sayang dari kami di Yogya untuk Bunga dan teman-teman"
That's the letter from my father i found along with my Mom's package (*forget about the "censored part", OK? ;p). I always know that my father can be very poetic^^. That's why he always becomes my homesickness's reason. Well, in the "regular situation", i will definitely burst into tears while reading that kind of letter. But because Komir, the one who brought me that package, gave the package when i was in Tainan (when i'm staying at NCKU dorm, to be exact), means there were a lot of people, so i thought i couldn't cry (freely) there. Hehehe. Sorry, it's not correlated with my PREMAN-image nor pride. I just feel insecure crying in front of others. But then, something funny happened. Febby and Dessy, -Edo's friend and fiancee (*hihihi, peace, Ner ;p), catch red handed me accepting the package, and then they were rudely snatched my letter away and read it out loud. After read a sentence...THREE OF US ENDED UP CRYING TOGETHER! Hahahaaaa...
Honestly, i'd rather accept letters than phone calls from my family, especially from my father. I mean, listening to their voice directly, surely hard. It's getting better now. But still, it's not good for my mental state (*it's not like i have some "mental" problems ;p). Despite of that, i'm glad that i can experiencing this kind of "long-distance" relations with my family. Everyday, i have to figure out how to survive and detach myself from an acute homesick disorder. It's a great challenge for a home-girl like me. Yet, i don't want to feel mellow all the time. There are plenty of things we can do to distract us from feeling so blue. We just have to find those things out.
Well, for my case, i just have to keep it up for some more months^^. Meanwhile, GANBARIMASU^^!!
*PS : For the ones who are living far away from their family : Guys, we will get through it for sure^^!!!
