~ marriot bomb ~

05 August 2003

this afternoon:

some australian guy: “hey thalia, did you hear about the bomb just exploded in Jakarta?”

thalia: “yeah, i read it in my.yahoo.”

a few minutes later:

some austalian girl: “did you hear what happened in Jakarta?”

thalia: “yeah, i read it in my.yahoo.”

some australian girl: “omg, i’m so sorry about that…”

thalia: “me too…”

later on:

some indonesian guy: “oy, udah denger ada bomb di…”

thalia: “yep, udah. baca di my.yahoo.”

some indonesian guy: “… rupiah turun lagi deh nih… “

so, my.yahoo is good, bomb is bad. and some people in indonesia are just being extremely stupid to do all this terror to their fellow indonesians. how dissapointing.

ps: i think enda’s third paragraph of his entry is best describes my feeling towards this idiotic event (in indonesian).

updated news: from msnbc news.

Thal, I’m still speechless. Thanks for the rapid news, nevertheless. My first source was you. It’s pathetic. It’s sad. Semua2nya deh.
