What's your colour?



Believe it or not.. my true hair colour was light brown. Not BLONDE! But not as black as Asian hair.. : ( 

Yap. I’m truly Indonesian, but don’t blame me for the 1% Chinese blood that my great grandmother gave me. Also, I couldn’t blame the sun which burned my hair diligently when I was a kid. 

I’ve got an old photo that showed how “light brown” is my hair. My family knew it, and it was a very smooth, thin layer, but thick quantity, and straight hair. It wasn’t a problem at all, when I was at primary school. My dad put me in a private school, which made me able to have friends who did not really care about physical different. They just assumed me as another stranger. 

The problem came when I was at Junior High School. The school deputy often did a “general check up” for the students. One day, he came to my class and asked me to go straight away to the principal office. He said that “Who do you think you are? You think you can colour your hair at this age?” I kept saying that, “THIS IS MY REAL HAIR” “I NEVER PUT ANY COLOUR” “I WAS BORN LIKE THIS” 

Then the teacher said.. “When all the thieves are as honest as you, the jail would be full. The world will be peaceful..”  I sat down in the corner, and cried. Until my Dad came to my school, and told my teacher that it was my real hair colour. 

I was sent home that day. Afterwards, my Mom took me to the salon to dye my hair into black. Then the story of new colour begin…. Every now and then, I used to dye my hair into black. However, as you know.. the colour will last only for three months. When my mom was busy then she forgot to take me to the saloon, then my hair would turn into light brown.. Aloe Vera was my savior that time. I used it to make my hair darker, and it worked! Cool!

When I graduated, I played a lot with my hair colour. The last time was last year, I dyed my hair to “Purple Rose” it was red, not purple. Inside the room, you’ll see my hair a little bit dark red, but outdoor, you’ll see a brave red. Everyone loves it, including my hubby. 

As usual, it’s been six months and my hair colour wash out. It turns to be light brown (again) with a little slice of red. 

One day, I brushed my hair in the office’s toilet and my boss came.
“Oh, Gek, Did you dye your hair? IT’S A GREAT COLOUR!” 

I starred bluntly to her and  said.. “I didn’t dye my hair… “
“Didn’t you?” She frowned. 

“Nope” I smiled. “It’s my wash out hair colour, it was purple rose, last year I guess...”
She just stunned, and passed me then said, “It’s really nice colour, anyway… ” 

I smiled again while brushing my hair, “Thank you!” 

I love my light brown hair!
All photos mostly were taken by my BlackBerry Camera. The 2009 photo was taken after I came from Saloon. :D 
So, what’s your colour, Angel Lovers? ;)

nice day :)
Bermimpilah tentang apa yang ingin kamu impikan,
pergilah ke tempat-tempat kamu inginkan,
Jadilah seperti yang kamu inginkan,
karena kamu hanya memiliki satu kehidupan
dan satu kesempatan untuk melakukan hal-hal
yang ingin kamu lakukan
