Annoying People Part 1

September 27, 2005
I think this year I travel to Africa a lot.
Been to several airports as well.
This happened on the way to Jakarta. Sehabis transit di Lagos, kita sampe di JoBurg.
Di JoBurg, kita harus nunggu 5 jam sebelum boarding. 

Airportnya?
For me, much better than Charles De Gaulle. Emang sih ngga terlalu gede juga, but at least… loads of shops! hehehe… ada beberapa cafe, kios makanan ringan, parfum, kosmetik, CD, suvenir khas Afrika Selatan, massage, toko buku, perhiasan, jam tangan, apotik, asesoris & money changer.

Sama seperti kebanyakan airport, smokers ngga bisa ngerokok dengan bebas.
Ada tempat khusus, tapi beda banget sama di Changi, CGK atau di CDG. Dimana kalo mau ngerokok tinggal masuk ruangan khusus dan silahkan merokok dengan tenang.

Nah kalo di airport JoBurg, kita harus masuk ke sebuah lounge… and of course you have to pay
for drinks or food. Secara halusnya, you cannot smoke for free here.

Lounge-nya bagus. Dominasi merah – abu abu. Bahkan asbaknya aja tinggi (50 cm).

Ada internetnya juga, bayar 60 rands.

When I wait more than 30 min at the airport, gua selalu bawa sabun cair.
You know… perjalanan jauh, sometimes the nature calls.
And when I arrived at 6 am at JoBurg, I felt that the nature called me.

Tapi ada kebiasaan buruk… gua harus minum kopi untuk memperlancar panggilan.

So we went to a cafe.
“I want a cup of hot cappuccino, please.” That’s what I told Adit.

What happened next?
He arrived with a cup of hot cappuccino and a tall glass of ice coffee latte.
Of course I thought that the hot cappuccino is mine, but Adit said that I ordered ice coffee latte.
Noooo honey, I never drink cold drinks in the morning. It was you, who loves it.

I was suffering when he drank my hot cappuccino… uhuhuhuhhh…

Anyway… I was still on a mission to answer nature calls.

Then I went to the public restroom at the airport.

It’s clean, I’m glad.

I spent almost 11 minutes there. It’s not easy to do ‘the business’ terutama when someone drank your hot cappuccino yaa…

So… in the toilet… gua berkonsentrasi penuh.
Sambil…
Contemplating…
Mencari arti hidup…
Mencari inspirasi…
Singing any songs from Hamdan ATT
Konseeeeen… sampai this annoying lady came, terrorizing me.
Dalam proses menjawab panggilan alam… The cleaning Lady knocked the door several times!!!

ARRGGGHHH!

I didn’t do anything, Lady! Just a normal thing that others do when they’re in a public restroom.

She said something in a language that I don’t understand. I know I’m a total dumb in french, but at least I’m familiar when people swearing in french. But this lady, have no clue.

Pas gua keluar toilet, cepet-cepet, krn gua takut someone bener-bener udah ngga tahan dan toilet lain penuh…
TERNYATAAA… toilet lain kosooooong!!! arggghhh!!!

But the cleaning lady… dia ngeliatin gua dengan penuh hostilitas.
I didn’t do anything, Lady! Just a normal thing that others do when they’re in a toilet.

Then I had to wait another 11 hours to do it at Changi.

I love Changi!
Besides free internet and book stores, you can do a normal thing that people do when they’re in public restroom.
