Cousins Conversations

1. Di rumah, Sheung Ling Pei.
6 yo: /speaking Indonesian to her 22yo cousin/ Kak Iin, sekarang jam berapa?
22 yo: /speaking Indonesian/ Sekaraaang, jam 2 lewat 37 menit.
6 yo: /whispering to her 10 yo sister/ what does that means?
10 yo: /whispering/ it means two o’clock past thirty seven minutes.
22 yo: ….

2. Cuaca agak mendung ketika kami berangkat naik kapal ke Peng Chau Island. Di sana kami berencana main ke pantai. Tiba di sana, hujan turun lebat, selebat-lebatnya. Kami -bersebelas orang- hanya berlindung di bawah deretan pohon sambil memegangi sleeping bag untuk melindungi satu-satunya yang kering = kepala. Hujan lebat di pantai itu berlangsung sekitar 15-30 menit. Setelahnya, matahari bersinar terik bukan main, sampai-sampai baju kami yang basah kuyup jadi kering sama sekali. Dua remaja muda itu jadi terlihat bete, padahal buat saya ini pengalaman yang lucu, susah senang rame-rame bersama keluarga itu tetap saja sebuah hal yang patut disyukuri :)
13 yo: Kak, you look very happy.
22 yo: because I am. aren’t you? happy?
13 yo: you’re like, “oh my gosh I don’t understand bad things in life, I just don’t get it.”
22 yo: Well, is it bad being happy?
13 yo: Omg kakak, you are so innocent.
22 yo: what? why?
14 yo: just leave her like that, 13 yo. Kakak emang gitu, nanti kita gila sendiri kalo ngomong sama dia. LOL.
*ngakak berjamaah*

3. Di jalan ke Public Library, Tung Chung.
