When in Rome, do as Romans do

When in Rome, do as the Romans do...that's how the saying goes. Unfortunately, it doesn't apply to some people. My sister recently went to Melbourne for some work. The 1st few days she was so excited about it. After 2 weeks, she told me she missed Jakarta already. I asked her why? She said all is nice here, but somehow I feel I don't belong here. She feels comfortable in her own territory. Among  4 of us (my sisters n my self), I guess I'm the only one who dare to venture out further. Maybe I got it from my father. He always dared us, whether it was as simple as riding a bicycle or to let me go and work faraway from home and eventually married and settled in India.

My MIL, used to tell people that I'm courageous. Well, maybe I am. Grew up in a nuclear family and working in big cities, I finally chose to settle and live with joint family in this nook (if I can say so) of India which even some Indians don't even realize that it is part of India..pun intended :d. I

If you asked me how do I manage? I don't know..but I guess God has sent me here on a mission which I'm yet to discover. Well, life after all is a never ending adventures and discoveries.

Just a rambling thought...


  1. Well life is always an adventure & we don't know what the future hold ;) If we're not adventurer (read= nekater wakakak) we won't manage to live in India that's still takes years to be called as developed country. For what we have to discover, don't you think you've discovered already? The answer is buying, selling and smurfing all the beautiful and ethnic Indian fabric :D

  2. senangnya bisa berkelana di negeri orang.. tiap orang emang jalannya beda-beda dan itulah yang terbaik diberikan untuk kita

  3. @Agnes: you got fact, I never knew I'm a fabricoholic until I came to India..LOL

    @Dheeny: you're right, dear..come to India sometimes..:)
