Met Baba at his office, my friend's here too. They're gonna go to the market to shopping food to make Darbat. I was looking for pharmacy so we went to the market. No pharmacy, and in groceries have no medicine. There has the clinic but today was close!
Baba just moved to Nagarkot several years but as he's Baba and friendly so he knows everyone. He stopped at every houses to hello people. Friend and I became more interesting for Napaleses. (Baba's followers haha)
Baba doesn't go to the market often, this was for the party so he shopped by himself. Punda came, from nowhere. Then Baba and i went to shop but my friend and Punda was hanging aroun there. Baba asked me 'do you eat meat?' I asked 'what meat?' (afraid that he means buff.
I met Dipa again, today she's more cute than that day. I told myself that i will do something for her before i left Nagarkot. Bye bye mother, she said. She called me "mother" since the first day after i said "You are just 11? I am 31, wow, you could be my daughter!!" :D I never ask her where or who is her real mama, I only met her brother and sister in law. I let she called me that because actually i am glad to be her mom if i was ready to be one :D She asked me one thing which made me laugh "My sister in law is 18 years old and she already has one baby but you are 31, why don't even get married?" Hahahaha, I don't know .
I walked back home (Nirvana) with Baba. He stopped at his office to close it. Actually he doesn't has to close it because it has only his photos of taking people to Everest. Baba has never stayed at the office more than one hour a day but he always opened it. I asked him "why did you open it if you're not stay here?" He said "In case someone wants to see me" Me "Will they see you if you're not here?" He laughed. I think this office is not for business, it's more like a hobby. Baba's slogan is "Everything is possible" I asked him "Really? Everything's possible?" He said with a low tone, "With baba, everything is possible but .... love" Awwww....
I asked my friend later that can baba has girlfriend? Because "Baba" in Nepal is like a monk.
I still wonder could he get married? Baba has talked to me about love but i dare not ask him. It's personal.
A Darbat party which at first i thought it was for the kids. I asked him do you have a party every Sunday? He said No. I asked "why today?" He said "It's a party for you" ... Oh, my honored. Thanks brother. "And for Djimbe guy too You both will go tomorrow, right?" ... Yes, that's sad.
After reached home "Just sit inside that help me a lot.
Baba please enjoy this new stuff instead of that coca cola!!! We're happy that he loves it! :D
Besides us, there had the other 5 japanese friends, one of them came from another town. He brought a Nepal dessert which was like a mashmellow but made from Buffalo milk!!!! It's preserved in sirup. Everyone had to tried. I gave my friend a half, it was very sweet!!!!!!! But when i bit it, in my head had only a picture of Buffalo breast! Ahhhhh.
One hour later Japanses friends went back to bed. Only my friend, i , Rio and baba were still there.
I wish i could show you a Baba's room but it's too personal. It's a small tidy room with many painting by himself and lots of souvenirs from his friends. I have nothing for him so he took my Thai cigarrete box and kept it as a souvenior from Thai friend, funny. Rio excused herself to go to bed, she'll leave here early morning. Only me, Baba and my friend left. With the dim light from candle and cold weather but inside our hearts were so warm with good feeling that three of us have given to each other.
Baba handed me an apple, i started taking it. My friend was so happy to see me take care of it haha.
Then he whispered, "Today is for both of you" .
