birthday wishes

saturday 21 march was Ar Ir's birthday. I didn't make or buy any birthday cake and candles. but Dan had a surprise for them. a stay in a hotel.
sabtu 21 maret kemarin ultahnya Ar Ir. tidak ada kue ulang tahun dan lilin. tapi Dan punya kejutan: menginap di hotel.

they were so excited. when we first got there, Ar asked me, 'do they have computers here?'
I said, 'no they don't'. so it was the first wish of Ar: 'I wish hotels have computers I can play with...'
anak-anak seneng banget. saat pertama kali tiba, Ar bertanya padaku: 'di hotel ada komputer ngga sih?'
aku bilang 'tidak ada...'. jadi inilah harapan pertama Ar: 'andai saja ada komputer di hotel, jadi aku bisa main..'

in the evening we went for burgers and milkshake. when we went back to the hotel, they satisfied them selves almost an hour in the bath tub, then off to bed.
that was when Ar said his second wish: 'I wish this was my home...'
and Ibit replied: 'oh yeah, off course...'
sorenya kami pergi cari burger dan milkshake. waktu kembali ke hotel, anak-anak puas-puasin berendam di bath tub hampir sejam lamanya. lalu pergi tidur. itu saat Ar mengucapkan harapan keduanya: 'andai saja ini rumahku..'
kata ibit: 'yang bener aja..'

so when it was time to check out, I told the kids to get ready. and Ar said his last wish: 'I don't want to go home. I love hotel. I wish I could stay here forever...'
ketika tiba waktunya check out, aku suruh anak-anak bersiap untuk pulang. dan Ar berharap untuk terakhir kalinya: 'aku tidak ingin pulang. aku suka hotel. andai saja aku bisa tinggal di sini selamanya...'

well I don't know what to hope about that, boy. but this is the wish at least I could make come true for your birthday presents...
wah, ga tahu ya nak, bisa ngga ibu mewujudkan harapanmu itu. tapi ini harapan yang paling tidak bisa kami wujudkan sebagai hadiah ulang tahun kalian...
