Okay. Today I’ll share my personal life story about my friendship.
First, let me introduce my amazingly-indescribable-crazy-bestfriends!
For short, we met at our elementary school (except for Syifa and me, we’ve been friends from playgroup). We read a book, Agatha Christie’s “The Big Four”. ‘The Big Four’ in Agatha Christie’s book is a group of 4 smart and dangerous criminals : Li Chang Yen -number 1, the Leader-, Abe Ryland -number 2, the Investor-, Madame Olivier -number 3, the Smart Liar-, and the last is Claud Darrell -number 4, the destroyer (for more information about the book, click here!). So we named ourselves as The Big Four, because we are four and we are.. somehow, have a little lot similarities with the real The Big Four. We are four, we must admit that some of us are smart like Li Chang Yen -we don’t mean to be proud, we are kinda crazy and dangerous, and so on.
Here is the members of our ‘The Big Four’!
1. Atika Nur Rochmah (Tika) a.k.a. Li Chang Yen v.2 or Number 1
She’s very smart just like Li Chang Yen. A big fan of Agatha Christie, Hercule Poirot, cats, and physics.
2. Marida Sari Pangestu (Dida) a.k.a. Abe Ryland v.2 or Number 2
She’s a cute girl who adores cat. Easily angry, sometimes, but she’s kind-hearted. I think there is nothing similar about her and Abe Ryland
3. Cut Alima Syarifa (me, Alima) a.k.a. Madame Olivier v.2 or Number 3
Me. Just describe me as your own wish. The only reason why I chose to be named as Madame Olivier is because she’s the only woman in The Big Four and because she is a Frenchwoman (I’m addicted to France a lot, especially at their language and accent).
4. Azzahra Asysyifa (Syifa) a.k.a. Claud Darrell v.2 or Number 4
She’s a smart girl and I think she doesn’t have a criminal thinking like Claud Darrell. Nothing similar between her and Claud Darrell. She’s addicted to biology and being riddiculous.
Because we aren’t in elementary school any more and we missed each other, we held a meet up. Actually we have held 5 meet up. This holiday’s meet up were in Syifa’s house.
We were invited by Syifa just a few days before Christmas but thanks God we could gathered at Syifa’s house. Our first plan was to make a Turkish Pudding, but Syifa and Tika said it took a long time to be setted. Fortunately we had the opportunity to grill satay to fill our time. Satay is Indonesia’s traditional food of grilled meat (with some nut sauce, sometimes). It took a long time to grill it, but it was really worth it.
From left to right : Syifa, Tika, and Dida..
We sliced the meat into small pieces..
..then we gave some soy bean sauce, salt, and else..
..and finally, the satay was ready to be grilled!
This is me hugging Tika when we were waiting for the grill to be ready..
Those are Tika and Dida..
I, Tika, and Dida when we were grilling the satay..
The satay before it was done..
And this is the grilled satay! You must be jealous 😀
And this is us, The Big Four plus Syifa’s brother, Akbar.
Actually, there’s some pictures of us when we ate the satay and soto (another traditional food from Indonesia), but something went wrong with the file and I don’t know what to do 😦
And yeah, that’s what I really want to show you this past weeks, sorry for making you to wait, especially Tika 🙂 (I really want to post this as a New Year gift for us but the internet connection was so lame so I must delay it a little longer)
Thanks for reading, Readers 🙂
