Last month, Mum has informed me that she and my Dad could not come to attending my brother’s graduation day inYogyakarta because they cannot leave my grandmum whom need a lot of attention than us, then she ask me to go. I agreed and excited. It has been a log time since tha last time I visited Yogyakarta, it was on 2009 btw. The graduation day carried out on 25th August 2016. I have bought the train ticket two weeks earlier before departure, because the price is cheaper than we buy it on the spot. I have bought Taksaka Malam for IDR 290k, an executive class–but unfortunately the economy class are sold out, so there was no option. Purchasing ticket is way too simple nowadays. When you need a ticket to go somewhere, you can order it online through the internet or contacting the travel agent by phone. I made a phone call to PT KAI (Kereta Api Indonesia) to order one way ticket. To order ticker, the customer service need our personal identity to process the ticket. After that, they will give you the booking code and limited time to pay. Simple isn’t it?
I’d prefer to use tran than plane because it simply I don’t like flying. Hahaha..
On the day I arrived–it was 4.20 am approximately, my brother picked me up at Tugu station. I did not take some pictures of it because we were in a hurry and he need to get ready and preparing some stuff before the graduation ceremony begin. He dropped me off at my friend’s home, Kiki. Kiki is one of my best friend since we were in high school. She is married to a Javanese guy and has a three weeks old son names Russel. She names his son based on a little lad names Russel in UP the movie. She wish that her son will be like Russel in the future.
Hasna–she is my little brother’s gf picked me up at 7 am sharp to attend the ceremony. It was not only my brother who will graduated on that day, but also my cousin who finished his study for D4–the same stage as bachelor degrees, and his parents were coming too. The opening ceremony began at 8.30 am sharp. It took two hours or more for ceremonial of the cadets, the opening speech, the pledge and speech of the Minister of Agrarian that made us almost fall asleep. My brother got surprised when he saw Hasna were coming too. After we took some pictures, we went to get some food for lunch.
On the second day which I have to check-in in the hotel I have booked, but my brother couldn’t pick me up due to there is an event he has to handle, so I have spent the whole day at Kiki’s home, because I felt a bit tired too and got lack of sleep. Kiki and I were just talking and remembering about the memories we have gotten when we were in high school–while she carries her baby all the time of course. There are a lot of things you have to do when you become a Mother such as feeding the baby, change the baby’s diaper, to bathe the baby and another baby stuff that makes you got lack of sleep just like a zombie. I got amazed that she is a mother now.
