A Skinny Yellow Girl Named Deth-o

There is a skinny yellow girl named deth-0. She is very thin. I guess she doesn’t have any flesh covering the bones, so probably the bones cover her body. Actually, she does eat a lot of food, but in the meantime, the food just goes like that, passing the body without even going anywhere in the whole body, so that’s why she got really thin. How about a boy? She has a lot of boys, a boy who whom she likes and a boy who likes her.

Deth-o likes to drink coffee, but the habit of drinking too much coffee, makes she became sick, but even it’s getting worse, it doesn’t even make her afraid of being die soon because actually she’s afraid of being hungry rather than being dead.

She used to bother me all the times. Sometimes just to say things that weren’t important at all. So one day, I made her do some activities including learning English, just to improve her knowledge about English, but it definitely useless, do you know why? Because she hates English, so no matter how I made her study English, It wouldn’t even one step closer to become good enough. I guess it would better if she just learned Javanese, since even she didn’t take any of course, but somehow she just knew some of the Java language and speaks Javanese very well.

Then one day, she came to me said “I’m going to learn Mandarin.” I did not even believe what I just heard, but it was true. Unfortunately, it stopped in the middle just when she succeeds to say “Ni Hao” I guess even in Mandarin where I’m really bad, I’m still better than her.

After I pushed her to learn many languages, I finally gave up not because I don’t want her to be better, but because I knew that there is something else that she loves a lot. She loves art, design and many kinds of colorful stuffs. When she signed for a graphic design major in university, I thought like “this girl must be joking around.” I never see she drew something or even do some design bur then she chose that major.


She is a graphic designer. She knows a lot about art. I surprisingly see how good she is now. She helped me a lot with my project. I guess it’s true when people say “you think you know a person but then it turned you have no idea about that person at all”

I guess its right when people said “don’t judge a book by its cover, you never know what’s inside of it”

I enjoy walking around, language immersion in different places, have a cup of coffee at some unfamiliar coffee shop, embrace the history or art in many different museums. I love coming across people and blending with new culture. I like having conversations with new people, blogging the stories and inspire people.

    unless you have a gift to know how the person is without having to meet her/him 🙂 . I do have a friend who hates English so much. she is now stationed in Malaysia. I thought she would be good in English after that. I was wrong. she is in fact good at bahasa melayu than english. because it sounds like bahasa indonesia. I once taught her english to her. but then gave up because I know she won’t be able to learn it well. I concluded that we can only be good at something we love.
