After i arrived at home on Sunday, I really wanted to update about this but I was so tired and sleepy, hehe. okay, here’s my story!
last Sunday I finally went to Tanah Tingal! after for almost 10 years i lived nearby that outbound-area, I was there for attending White Shoes & the Couples Company live concert with the title was “Berjalan-jalan Vol.1”
ticket and cassette, got from the event
the ticket cost Rp 80.000, including their new single tape/cassette and also the entrance-ticket for Tanah Tingal. The ‘concert’ theme is actually not really concert, but they (the event crews) made a picnic-day which opened for all family members (child under 12 years old was free).
There was many food stalls on the pool sides which sold any kind of foods and drinks. we need to exchange our rupiahs into money-vouchers if we want to buy anything from food stalls.
since it was a family-event, there was many kind of kids programs, like face-painting or making handicraft from used-materials, both of them was free from any cost. Another kid’s activity was story telling that held by APISI (Asosiasi Pekerja Informasi Sekolah Indonesia) or Indonesian School Information Association. APISI was also solds very-low-priced-books, and they open book-donation which later will distributed to libraries around Indonesia, with their ambitions was to broaden child’s knowledge through reading.
At first i only want to check what kind of books that APISI sold, and if there were kid’s books that contains more picture than text, maybe i would buy some. Surprisingly, yes of course, they sold some kid’s books that full of picture and it cost only Rp 10.000, there were two books that caught my eyes, Lion Kings and Binatang Menakjubkan dalam Al-Qur’an (Amazing Animals which Told in Al-Qur’an). After i looked on the side of book’s table, there was rectangular carton with a hole in front of it, and at the carton’s top there was written "Buy the books and donate them to these children" (yea it’s not the exact sentence, but sort of) and i was confused and i asked the seller, if i might buy the books and bring them home, or i should put the book which i bought into the carton. I told her that i want to buy them because I want to donate them to Komunitas Menara’s library. And then, the seller was surprised and she ask about my activity on Komunitas Menara, she thought that I’m a librarian hahaha. She gave me her contact and she ask mine either, she want to invite me to their activity someday. i was so happyy! this is a life that i want to live in.
