I got an offer to work out of town, to be an editor in a national media. It excited me, really. However, unfortunately I said no.
I can’t leave Makassar again. I don’t want to.
Years ago, I wanted to go out from this city so much. Every place somehow reminded me of the memories I want to forget.
But then I came back and I met Akbar and I turned to love this city so much. My family is here either. My Mom also forbids me to leave home before I get marry.
I start to make beautiful memories here and make it as homey as I could.
Ah, anyway, I am going to teach again on Monday! It’s a small office in Haji Bau Street, near Wisma Kalla. Different challenge, different place.
Allah knows best.
