Simon P., a.k.a Metromad, who usually appears in your Sunday’s Jakarta Post, is a proof of life that you should never make a big decision when you’re still under Bintang Beer influence. Under a mysterious spell, he went to the music shop, saw the poster of our president’s album, Rinduku Padamu (My Longing For You), and decided to purchase it. My my. He was surprised to find out that the CD copies of the rising star has all sold out, so he had to buy the old-fashioned casette copy (he should try The Presidential Palace, since they sell souvenirs like black t-shirt with the presidential logo, they might have SBY’s CD copies there).
On the other side of Jakarta, Unspun was stuck in traffic jam and found some consolation when he heard that the Presidential motorcade was also stuck somewhere. He then imagining the President was sitting uncomfortably in the car, ready to burst, impatience, restless, just like Unspun himself.
But after reading Simon P.’s posting, I bet SBY is more than happy to get stuck in the middle of the road so he has extra minutes to practice his singings. Unspun might be lucky the next time he was stuck in traffic and has the president singing next to him….
