"Waalaikummussalam" he replied instanly
"sudah makan siang? ( did you had lunch today?)"
"hihi belum mas (not yet boy)"
" udah dua hari ga makan ( I never eaten for 2 days)"
"kenapa? (why?)" silly question just popped from my mouth
" Ini, aqua gelas nya masih belum cukup" his Aqua cup still not enough for today.
Mr As, around 40, collect used plastic cup for recycle every day, so he can sell it
for a food.
continue to live. He came from Jawa Timur (east Java) to Jawa Barat (west Java),
to find a new hope, a new job and to change his life. He has no family.He was quite
indifferent to the world running with accelerated speed around him.
As if he has nothing to do with anyone or anything. It seemed that he has not
even bathed for many days, nor has changed his clothes.
He had not shaved for months and hair had also got dirty.
He did look almost like a beggar but made no sign of begging from others.
And he knew "EVERYDAY DO SOMETHING THAT WILL INCH YOU CLOSER TO BETTER TOMORROW".
It is sad because I'm still incapable to help this poor guy.
I gave him some green paper so he can have lunch.
But, what about tomorrow?
