Something You Should Guard

with 17 comments

The sun has left from the top position, it was almost 2 o’clock. I was waiting my friend for doing lunch together. I was so hungry since I did not have my breakfast.

And I started to make plan. Hmmm, roasted chicken at Kantin Bu Olis seems to be delicious meal at the afternoon. Or maybe spiced meat with kangkung, superb. Ah, no I just have 15 thousand Rupiahs left in my wallet. It will be bad if I spend it too fast, i still have dinner time. I thaugt the best option is having lunch with an omelette and soup, those are cheaper. Yep, omelette plus soup.

Ibun, my kos mate has done with his “morning” bath. Time to go. But bad, when we reach Kantin Bu Olis, all the dish have ran out. Just one little piece of roasted chicken left. Of course that won’t be enough for us both. Then we decided to find another place. A small debate on Ibun’s motor. He wanted to eat at someplace on Gerbang Belakang. But I didn’t, I have a bad experience with that place. At last we choose a ‘warteg’ at Tamansari.

There weren’t any omelette at this place. Several dish interesting me just teri fish and tempe. Ow, I forgot the kangkung. Then I ate that, rice with teri fish and kangkung. Not too bad.

While finishing my meal, I was thinking what a great Tegal is. It has many canteen everywhere in Indonesia. Who never known warteg? I guess almost every Indonesian knows that word, warteg : warung tegal. I wonder why there isn’t wargor, warung gorontalo. Hehe…

It’s just few spoons after starting my meal when I found something wrong with it. I found a hair inside my kangkung. Ah, just a hair, no problem. Just need to remove it then I can continue my lunch. My heart’s almost stopping. Unfortunately that’s not a hair. It’s a… oh my god, it’s a cockroach antenna. Jack pot… Bad… bad… bad… but my mouth’s still chewing the rice.

No… no… there are several people. And if I start to blow up, that will effect the other. That’s bad for just a small warteg like that place. It’s not a big fast-food restaurant like McDonald’s, it’s just a low profile of a small place to eat. They can be bankrupt if did, that’s what I thaught.

Then I continue chew my rice. Slowly… slowly and disgusted. I saw my friend beside me, he has finish his. I decided to swallow the rice. Finish, I ended my meal. I follow my friend pay the meal. I’m out of that place. One thing I know, I won’t be back there anymore. They just lost what should they guard, a customer beliefs.

  11. hahaha..bodoh..

  12. Don’t worry ray, i thought you knew that “somewhere” (i’m sorry, i forget where it was. but i sure i have read about it) eating cockroach was just ordinary thing that the community do. they said that cockroachs contain such a good protein :p
    maybe we’ve just already fulfill our head with thinking that cockroachs are disgusting, that’s why we can’t see the good side of them 😀
    so, not only help the author of warteg, you also have a “healthy” lunch
    p.s. is it part of my fault that you didn’t eat properly? oops!


    30 May 08 at 11:01 pm

  13. @vienz: untungnya blm sempat kemakan vin, antena kecoa itu cuma menyembul dari balik kangkung (seperti rambut)… tapi hueeex

    @echi: hehehe, gak juga kok…

    @sindyallrani: siapanya nih yang bodoh? daku atau wartegnya? 😦

    @anis : iya nih masih menunggu mashed potato dari anis… hehehe
