[Ambon] Kaos Singlet dan Celana Selutut

Kaos dan Celana Selutut
Kaos dan Celana Selutut
Teman saya di Jakarta – keturunan Ambon – sering berbagi cerita tentang mudahnya membedakan orang Ambon dari pakaiannya. “Kaos singlet, celana selutut dan bisanya kalung rantai berbandul salib ukuran besar,” ujarnya sembari terkekeh.

Dan itu pula lah yang saya temui ketika sore itu, 26 Januari 2011, masuk ke kota Ambon. Udara yang panas dan gerah sering jadi alasan. Buat saya, suasana penuh keakraban dan easy-going nya orang Ambon nampaknya lebih menggambarkan ‘seragam’ laki-laki Ambon itu.

Walau didapuk sebagai kota terbesar kedua di kawasan Indonesia Timur, Ambon tak setergesa-gesa seperti Makassar apalagi Jakarta. Terlepas dari kendaraan yang sering mandek di jalan-jalan sempit berkontur dan satu arah, kota ini tetap menawarkan detak kehidupan yang lebih santai.

Island living. Hammock. Ukulele. Sibu-sibu (sepoi-sepoi) Apalagi yang lebih cocok dikenakan selain kaos singlet dan celana santai selutut?

Do You – Really – Live Your Life as A Local?

When we embrace this kind of ‘local’, it doesn’t matter what accent people speak, as long as they communicate seamlessly. It doesn’t matter who eats what for lunch, as long as they can share their dining table. It doesn’t matter who enters or leaves, as long as the community maintains, shapes and keeps redefining their locals.

Fishes Know No Politics or Religions

Somehow, I didn’t care about the menu mistakes, the #meh coffee and all the tiring talks about religions and politics in this trip, but that LOL with a stranger perfectly ended my trip to Kei Islands.
