Betel leaf


From  June 2 to 3, 2011, Kelor arrival of 19 guests from Singapore. A total of 17 Victoria Secondary School’s students (equivalent to junior high school) and 2 teachers. On the dinner, one of student choking to nosebleeds. One of our people named Ms. Niken with alacrity trying to help by looking out for the betel leaf. Multiple sheets immediately obtainment from about dinner location. Our other people asked ‘Would such a use of betel leaves as a cure nosebleeds?’ The thought that crossed was Singapore is the country where the  Indonesian officials get a treat. Logically, Singapore’s people when  they sick a little bit, they must go to the doctor. How could he want to use betel leaves as a cure nosebleeds? Ms. Niken confidently answered “what’s the other alternative beside with the betel leaf? In the village usually use the traditional way. ‘Unexpected, he welcomed the assistance with happily. Some of the betel leaves are still he asked to carry. ‘Gelem ngono kok, nek arep nulungi yo nulungi wae rasah mikir pindo, ora-orane nek dadi kisinan’  (He wants so anyway, if you want to help with it, do not think twice, it’s impossible would embarrass us), whispered Ms. Niken to the other. So? Shall we think twice to do a favor, though a little?

================================Daun Sirih==================================

Tanggal 2 – 3 Juni 2011, Kelor kedatangan 19 orang tamu dari Singapura. Sebanyak 17 anak adalah siswa sekolah Victoria Secondary School (setara dengan SMP) dan 2 orang guru pendamping.

Saat makan malam tiba, salah seorang siswa tersedak sampai mimisan (hidung mengeluarkan darah). Seorang warga kami (mbak Niken) yang ditugaskan di lokasi makan malam dengan sigap berusaha membantu dengan mencarikan daun sirih. Beberapa lembar segera didapatkannya dari sekitar lokasi makan malam.

Warga kami yang lain bertanya ‘maukah tamu tersebut menggunakan daun sirih sebagai obat mimisan?’ Bayangan yang terlintas adalah negeri Singapura merupakan negeri tempat berobat para pejabat Indonesia. Logikanya mengatakan, orang Singapura sakit sedikit pastilah berobat ke dokter. Mana mungkin dia mau menggunakan daun sirih sebagai obat mimisan? Dengan mantap mbak Niken menjawab ‘lha mau diobati pakai apa kalau bukan daun sirih? di desa adanya ya pakai cara tradisional.’

Tak diduga sama sekali, ternyata tamu menyambut bantuan tersebut dengan suka cita. Beberapa lembar daun sirih yang masih ada dimintanya untuk dibawa. Gelem ngono kok, nek arep nulungi yo nulungi wae rasah mikir pindo, ora-orane nek dadi kisinan’ (Mau gitu kok, kalau mau menolong ya tolong saja, tak usah berpikir dua kali, gak mungkin akan mempermalukan kita), bisik mbak Niken pada yang lain. So? Masihkah kita berpikir ulang untuk melakukan sebuah kebaikan, meskipun sedikit?
