Randomness That Made My Day

by Amalia

I didn’t plan to go anywhere today as I had to do my take-home exam. But then at the end of the day, I realized I didn’t have any foods left in the fridge, so I decided to do my last-minute grocery shopping.

On my way to the supermarket, just a few meters away from my house, I saw a huge bear-shaped balloon placed in front of a house. The bear balloon was so big!!! It’s twice higher than the entrance door! Then there were also many pink decorative balloons in front of the door, with a VERY BIG sign:


In English, it translates to: Hurray! It’s a girl!

Somehow it made me laugh! I could  definitely understand the happiness of an arrival of a new baby, but to put a big sign and many huge balloons in front of your house, located on a busy street?! Hahaha. I didn’t know what to say. Ok, the street isn’t as busy as the city center, of course. But there are many people passing by, as the red light district is located just few meters away.

Suddenly, I felt like going to that house to congratulate the parents. LOL. I wanted to take a picture of the house, but there were just too many people there and I didn’t want to attract attention hahaha.

Thank God I went out of my cage.
