Finally that day was come!! On that first day, i went to Juanda Airport to pick up our guest. Me feel so nervous. Some bad minded was like a ghost on my mind, like “ How if the guest was not kind? How if they act ike evil? and many others that i couldn't explain” . I arrived on Juanda Airport, International Arrived. Waiting for them are like waiting nghhh, they got a delay!! wattaaaaaaaa
9.40 finally they came! First one i saw was big-tall people with his grey-mustache and you know? He's just like an old Bollywood actor, Amitabh Bachan! :D We acquainted and i know his name was Kirtee Shah, but i ask " You're Amitabh Bachan's twin, don't you?" he laughed out-loud and say "No mam" i teased him again "NO, but you're Amitabh's lost-twin i think, Sir" he was laughed again. And the others, Mr. Om Prakash Mathur ( Professor from a University ) , Mr. Vinay Lall ( his face just like my grandpa :P ), Mr. Rajendrakumar Valley ( a Municipal ), Mr. Assish Deosthall, and the last the one who stayed on different hotel, Mr. Sunandan Tiwari ( he's the handsome one, I think :P )
On that first day, Mr. Prakash was asked us to brought him to buy some Batik. We took him to Mirota and Danarhadi. On second and third day, they have roundtable meeting.
But on third day, Mr. Prakash didn't attend that meeting and ask me to took him back to Mirota to chances her clothes and buy some batik again :D
PS : He said that he loves batik so much ;D. Along the way to Mirota on taxi we talking a lot about anything. About ourself, about our country like the culture, food, weather.
Ohya, i've been come to India Restaurant on Surabaya, the name is "Sitara India Restaurant" which located on Hayam wuruk street 54a. I'll tell you the direction, if you wanna go there :)
