Kacang yang lupa kulitnya

Well, I wrote "kacang yang lupa kulitnya" as the title because I don't know what the English is hahaha...

Begini ceritanya..
Today, I had appointment with my best friend at Menzies Building. I don't want to mention his name as people who read this blog would be able to identify who he is *GR aja klo ada yg baca blog aneh ini hahahaha*. We had fantastic discussion, discussed about my course, the lecturers (whether they are racist too or not), and my assignment.

On the middle of our conversation, he said that he was sad because of someone did not communicate with him anymore. Pretending that her name is A and she is a female. And we know the person whom we talked about and absolutely I know what exactly happened *might be*. His implicit words convey his dissatisfaction or dissapointed feeling to A and it seemed to me that A just contacted him when she needed him. Whenever my friend has already helped her and she succeed, A forgot what my friend has done to her.

Then, my friend said, "I don't know why she didn't contact me anymore. maybe she hates me.." and I spoke over him and said, "No, that's impossible. Might be she is busy preparing documents to come here". At that time I didn't want to talk a lot as I didn't want to create another problem within them. After that, he changed the discussion and came back to our previous discussion.

For me, he is not only a best friend, but also a teacher and advisor. Thus, I really respect him. However, one thing that makes me dissapointed is the way people approach him whenever they need his help. After getting what they want, they are gone like the wind. This kind of attitude will give bad stereotype to other Indonesian people or students. There will be bad image of Indonesian people as people who cannot show their gratitude towards someone's help.

I don't know what to say, but I feel pity for my friend and I feel dissapointed with A. She is like kacang yang lupa kulitnya or we could say like a peanut who forgets the skin hahahaha.. *what a silly translation*. Therefore, I promise to myself that I would not do the same thing as A did and promise to keep in touch with him even though I have graduated from this campus.
