Filled to the Brim
I think I'm in love with Bowral. These 2 days have been much needed. You have no idea how much affection I'm filled with for all these people I just met.
Opa Sutanto and Oma Jill's house is so cozy and the view is gorgeous! They've got so many beautiful flowers and trees and the house is situated at the top of the hill. You can actually hear the cows mooing in the pasture below. :D
Tante Trace's house is also awesome. She's got a huge plot and her house is filled to the brim with crafts. I swear it's like a museum!
The town itself is very lovely with its quaint shops and numerous cafes.
There was another Indonesian family staying over for the weekend there. Tante Tuti, Om Dodi and their 2 kids, Sarita and Desi. They're such wonderful people and they all made me feel so welcome there. It didn't feel like I just met then for the first time. They even gave me a lift back home. Hee Hee.
Because I helped out with some of the housework and because the food we got was neverending, it seriously felt like home to me. And the people were so nice. Sigh. I should've accepted their invitation last year. At least I could've destressed better then.
This trip is probably the highest point of the past month or so. Even if it was only on the weekend and with people I barely know. And you know what? This is the ONLY reason that makes putting on weight justifiable. You know, like going home? Man, I miss my own Oma.
Okay, off to report to my mother. :D
