This week, my heart felt full. You know, to have meetings with everyone.
A meeting with Miwa last Saturday. We talked about our dreams, put thoughts on the concept, unique point, approaching strategy. Continued with topics of life, enlightenment where we put our heart into. It started from Twitter, which led us to be brave on starting “the game”. She’s an inspiring one. She manages to be in the industry, she has been loving since JHS. It’s her story.
On Monday, I had a meeting with the CEO of Tolongin, Mas Kamal, to know more about his company’s LINE@ usage for finishing my freelance website project. It was great to know him and his vision on Tolongin. He has a sincere reason to make it bigger than just an online delivery service in Jatinangor. His mission is outstanding, to make a connection between local people and the college students in a harmonious and profitable way, which never happened before. His background was from Political Science but end up to get a big role in the business management field. Started from simple reason to get extra money as a student, he was changed into an #AgentOfChange to help the less fortunate. For the further story, I’ll have it serve on a single post under the Stubborn-Hearted category.
On Tuesday, a phone call with Udes was beyond. I missed her laugh and jokes. Though it was short, she helped me to make a decision on quandary from afternoon phone call I had not wait anymore. Whatever it was, it felt great to hear her voice.
On Wednesday, Aldwin picked me up at WTC to have a dinner (Bubur Barito FTW!), then we took a way to try newly-opened-but-half-finished Desari (Depok-Antasari) Toll Road. It’s fun to talk to him, as he always has topics that pop out from the corners of his brain. He asked opinions, gave fun facts, talked about future, values, headline issues, etc. Even we talked about a sensitive topic I never thought will have the courage to talk with a guy. But since he seemed okay (well, the car was quite dim so I wasn’t sure I couldn’t see his eyes but he kept on talking then I assumed it was okay). It’s so fascinating to meet an open-minded and smart one. So bad we didn’t have time to take a walk and visit his JHS (I acted like I don’t care because I was so tired, but honestly I was curious to see an old building at night).
On Thursday, Demi visited me at WTC. Last week, I asked her whether she’d come to Jakarta or stay in Cikarang. Luckily, this whole week she was assigned to work at the representative office of Schlumberger in Jakarta. We agreed to meet and yay she came. I called her “My Former Prospective Company Mate” and she was like “Stop it, I was sorry- not-sorry you didn’t get the acceptance letter. But you gotta be grateful because I have something to tell you and this would be a topic I never talked to anyone except my parents and boyfie” I was like “whoa, could you please be hurry picking your BB Cream but take your time but not too long because I can’t hardly wait to hear it! And please, who’s Dicki by the way? Where’s *peep*?” “Well, that’s another story.” “YES PLEASE!” We had dinner at Jalan Penjernihan I, a medium-sized street between Mayapada Tower and WTC Office Complex Area. Guess what! I felt blessed, really. For some reasons, with me being in this company and not in her company is the best deal I can get for now. Then about Dicki, my heart was full of excitement to hear about how Dicki has treated her these past months, compared to her last ex. Glad to hear she’s finally free from a guy who has a bad temper, uncontrolled manner, harsh verbally and physically.
On Friday, I barely met Fifi who turns out being an intern in the building I’ve visited almost everyday this week. Yup, she works in WTC 3 building. So sad we couldn’t find a time that day. Lol Mankom graduates being consultants’ slave but I don’t care, it’s fun! Perhaps we should welcome Qio next week as she will be starting his Marcomm Intern position in the same company with Fifi. Fifi works as an HR Intern btw. In Commuterline, Yn also asked me to meet at Sama Dengan near Duren Kalibata Station but I already promised mama to be at home right away. So, we planned the meeting on Sunday morning.
On Saturday, Yn told me her InyiMinyi updated her photo and added a caption “Thanks for always be there” like, I know how she loves this person and his InstaStory proved that he still cares with my super duper close creme de la creme best friend. After heard about Demi’s story, Yn’s story made me more blessed to feel this full. To witness a confusing yet cute relationship, where they fought for each other, suppressed their ego, being honest with each other, helping in every circumstance, etc. As Sunday morning felt so long and she’s better to use a whole day relaxing her flexes, we changed it to Saturday evening. The meeting was super fun. I forgot when was the last time we shared a laugh that hard. We talked about her work and my first week, the refugees and snob people she met, her accomplishment in funding team, how she works with new people and their distinct backgrounds. Then, we hopped to Ayam Babeh, a legendary fried chicken known for its chicken innards and special sambal. We continued talking about family, kebaya for the graduation ceremony, graduation robe fitting date, and so on. Glad to have her in my priority lists.
I often opt to talk one on one or three in max and happens for hours. The depth of topics that shared usually widen as the time rolling.
