1. The heat
As we know, Surabaya is a city with high temperature. I had lived in Surabaya for 22 years in hot atmosphere, literally. I’m the one who has sensitive skin type feel suffer due to the heat. It has made my skin more redish and dull. I’ve lived for 2 years in Jakarta. That affects my skin a lot. Most of my friends and family tell that my skin look brighter. But whenever I come home my skin is gonna be redish and dull again. No wonder Surabayaneses have darker skin than The Jaks. Sometimes I wonder it influences the characteristic of Surabayaneses. High temperature means high temper?
2. Lack of credit card promo
During in Jakarta I often use credit cards, either mine or my friends’, for shopping. It doesn’t mean I’m a shopaholic. It’s a big no no to be shopaholic. I use credit cards in order to get benefit from promo such as buy one get one free, discount 50% in some restaurants, etc. Besides, I can get reward points. Who knows I can win grand prizes such as cars 😉 Unfortunately that kinda promo in Surabaya is less than in Jakarta.
3. Boyfriend stuffs questions
Last but not least, I know people (even people that just meet me) will ask the same old boring questions: “So….where does your boyfriend come from?” or “You do have a boyfriend, don’t you?” or “Wina, you gotta have a future hubby” and stuffs like that. If I answer the truth, the questions evolve into the serious ones. Gee…zzzzzz why can’t they leave my privacy alone?!
