Saya Dikota (I am in The City)


Perkembangannya sangat cepat. Sehingga dunia menjadi sempit. Penuh sesak oleh bangunan – bangunan baik yang megah ataupun yang kumuh. Status sosial menjadi semakin tampak antara yang bermobil mewah dan yang bermobil jelek. Tempat yang paling nyaman adalah didalam sebuah kamar yang didesign sedemikian rupa melayani tubuh ini sehingga merasa nyaman.

Development is very fast. So that the world becomes narrower. Crowded by the building – both magnificent buildings or slum. Social status  increasingly visible between the rich with luxury car and the poor who drove fancy ugly car. The most convenient place is in a room which designed in such a way that serves body to feel comfortable.

Kota besar atau kota kecil sama saja adalah sebuah kota dengan kondisi diatas. Bahkan ada yang enggan untuk meninggalkan kota dengan segudang kemudahan yang tersedia. Kota menjadi pusat perekonomian. Pusat dari segala – galanya.

Big or small is the city is exactly the same place with the above conditions. In fact there are people who are reluctantly to leave city with a myriad of amenity available. The city became the center of economic. The center of everything.

Berjalan kaki menjadi tidak nyaman lagi oleh bau asap kendaraan dan limbah. Jalanan seperti biasa tidak ada yang lengang. Tapi jujur, dikota akan menghasilkan lebih banyak uang. Akan tetapi bagi yang kuat dan memiliki kepandaian atau skill yang dibutuhkan oleh banyak orang.

Walking became uncomfortable  by the smell of fumes and waste. Streets as usual where traffic jam always occur. But honestly, In the city, you will generate more money. But, for those who strong and has  ability or skill which needed by many people.

Sebenarnya berdagang dikota adalah suatu usaha yang tidak mudah. Banyak persaingan, dan prilaku konsumen yang berubah – ubah sesuai trend yang berlaku setiap waktunya. Saya berada di kota hanya pada saat ada kesempatan bukan karena keinginan untuk menetap disana. Orang kota memiliki prilaku yang berbeda dengan orang desa. Orang desa di kota akan kelihatan sangat jelas dari gerak – geriknya. Oleh sebab itu berhati – hatilah jika berada di kota karena disana tidak ada kebersamaan. Semua menjadi indifidual.

Actually trading in the city is not an easy effort. A lot of competition, and unstable consumer behavior – change in accordance to the trend at any time. I was in town only when there is an opportunity and It was not because of a wish to settle there. City people have different attitude with the villagers. The villagers who come for the first time to town would seem very clear from their motion. Therefore, be careful if you are travelling in town because there is no unity there.  But all became so individually.

    And because of the search of “richness” too many abandon the valleys and country side to get jammed into the crowded cities. That’s the same all over the planet… but the misery many of them found in the ghettos or favelas, are without equal! The old traditions are abandoned, the ancient capability are forgotten… for money? Still I ask myself if money can make someone happy… Serenity claudine
