Selamat ulang tahun means ‘happy birthday’ in Bahasa Indonesian, and yes, it was my birthday on the weekend. I officially turned 15 on Sunday the 12th, but celebrations started before that (after all, why wait?). Rosie had a sleepover at a friend’s house on Friday night, and didn’t come home until Saturday afternoon, so Mama, Papa and I went to Ambassador Mall in Central Jakarta. It is our favourite mall ever, because it is basically a multi-story, upper-class flea market.
I’ve been having my end of semester exams for the whole of last week (and will continue to have them next week). I’m off timetable, so I’m either revising in the cafeteria, playing cards with my friends in the cafeteria or taking an exam. While I do have many hours of free time every day, things do get a bit stressful, but I’ve found the perfect tension releaser: lacrosse.
