The City Column

Mari kita jujur akan satu hal: apakah kamu seorang pendosa? Saya rasa jawabannya semua orang selalu berbuat dosa. Tidak ada pengecualian. Bawah, menengah, sampai atas. Dari rakyat jelata sampai presiden. Dari penganguran sampai pengacara.

Dosa awal bermula di Taman Eden, oleh Adam dan Hawa yang memakan buah terlarang. Satu buah nikmat yang membuka mata manusia akan sebuah kesalahan fatal. Akhirnya mereka sadar akan kesalahan, lalu meninggalkan Taman Eden yang indah yang selama ini menjadi rumah mereka.

Adam dan hawa bertahan hidup, beranak-cucu, dan berkembang. Hingga mereka menemukan ‘rumah’ baru yang modern, kendaraan mewah, dan memakai setelan Armani, Prada, dan tidak lagi bertelanjang. Selamat datang di Jakarta. Dimana pohon hijau sudah semakin jarang, gedung semakin mencakar langit, dan keturunan-keturunan Adam dan Hawa yang semakin memadati. Sebuah Taman tidak lagi cukup untuk berdua. Jakarta adalah Taman Eden yang Metropolis.

So anyone that knows me knows I love a thick sassy woman. It’s like I have an innate gravitation to them. I didn’t notice this until I realized that most of my closest female friends and even my best friend was this archetype. When I really took an inventory of all my the women in my life that I either befriended or had an attraction to, it was thick sassy type. Now don’t get me wrong I think my slim sisters are beautiful but something about a woman with curves from head to toe is just amazing to me. I remember as a kid my first girlfriend when I was in preschool was a girl named Ivy Phillips..

Where she is now? I have absolutely no clue.

She was healthy toddler though. I can’t remember her face anymore but she was thick and it’s so funny my mom knew I…

Hong Kong is a fantastic city. A perfect blend of Chinese culture with western capitalism creates a lot of contrast when walking down the streets. Glamorous and glitzy skyscrapers cast a shadow over the back streets where a totally different life takes place. Here are a few impressions…
