The Miracle

August 30, 2005
Do you know… ah! of course you don’t… That’s why I’m telling you now

Adit is usually back from the office at 7.00-8.00 pm. Then we have dinner. After that, he’s smoking while checking mails or reading or watching television.


Washing plates, cleaning the kitchen, ironing at night (sometimes) and watering plants.

The funny thing is, I have to be in the same room as he is. He doesn’t care what I do, as long as I’m in the same room.

The problem is…
I love to clean this that here there at night. I’m used to clean everything before I go to bed so when I wake up in the morning, everything is clean and tidy.

Adit doesn’t like it. Sometimes he’s so upset because of my routines.

So, ok… now I’m married that I have to be more sensitive. Then, I try to clean everything as fast as I can so I can relax with him.

Yesterday, he shouted from the living room. A bit upset coz I’m still ironing his shirt. He wanted me to accompany him watching a movie from a television.

Ok… so I was there. Sitting next to him and watching movie. The movie is called Runaway Jury (starring Gene Hackman). I haven’t watch it and I was in the middle of it. So, I started to ask questions.

“Itu siapa A?”
“Oh jadi yang jahatnya yang ini?”
“Kenapa jury-nya pada diteror?”
“Itu tuh siapa yang main di Rain Man?”

Maybe… like Indra Birowo’s wife in Janji Joni. I asked many questions.

The miracle is… for the first time, Adit let me continue ironing. Hahaha…

Hey talking about Janji Joni… do you know that Joko Anwar, the director of Janji Joni has a blog? this is the URL of Joko Anwar’s blog

My editor at The Jakarta Post called last night. Saying that senior editors didn’t want me to review movies anymore for the paper since now I’m a filmmaker myself. Funny because I just wrote about not giving up my column a few days ago. I told my editor that the world would be a better place if all film critics also made movies. It’s also gonna be interesting because then they could bitch about other people’s movies and other people whose movies got bitched about could bitch back. My editor didn’t say anything but I knew he was covering his mouth for not laughing out loud. I think it made him he peeing in his pants.

Wait, I have to go to the toilet again.

Ahhh… I love reading his blog!
