Subject: [Puterakembara] Thank you from Kevin to All of you

Rekan-rekan,

Ini dia speech thank you "spontan" dari Kevin yang ternyata bukan sekedar thank you, tapi curhat juga.....hahaha.. Maaf dalam bahasa inggris, karena Kevin udah kesulitan merangkai kata-kata dalam bahasa indonesia. Tapi bahasa inggrisnya gampang kok... bahasa sehari-hari..... (ini saya copy-paste dan tidak saya edit sama sekali).

NB: Ucapan terima kasih dari Kevin ini sekalian mewakili saya untuk rekan yang belum saya respon.

Salam,

Leny

Hi Puterakembara,

This is my first time I'm writing to puterakembara.

First I would like to thank puterakembara for wishing me a happy birthday.

All of you, thank you very much, but you should really know that my birthday wasn't the one I expected, you know, not too spectacular like a party with friends and all that. What I had in mind is that me and my family siting in one table, cutting the cake and all of us having fun. We sang happy birthday, I made a million wishes to the cake and of course opening my presents. Instead, you know what birthday came to me? The night before my birthday, I don't know why and it's not because I'm excited, I can't sleep. I tried and tried but I just can't. Guess what? I slept at 3:30 AM. The next morning usually I was up and ready for my birthday but...come on, come on guess...... give up? I got a terrible flu that made me feel like a wreck with a blocked nose and a huge headache. I tried to have fun that day but I can't. I had to go to sleep so that I will feel better. So I slept all day bored, at my birthday! and I had to cancel my plans with my friends to the movies.

I had lunch and then we started to eat the cake. That was probably the only time I enjoyed my birthday. Then when things just couldn't get worse, I opened my present and it was a MP3. One of my best presents and you guessed it... IT BROKE! You know what? I cant believe it broke! I don't know why. That day I thought was the worst day, my worst birthday ever! But you know what? I shouldn't complain about all this. Sure I got sick that day but come on, It's just a flu. You get that often, any time, I mean, tough luck. That's life! I should be able to have fun at my birthday. Sure my MP3 broke but Dad's going to replace it with a new one. I shouldn't worry. I have a family that still wants to celebrate my birthday. That day I was learning a new experience about life. Life can sometimes bring you down with whatever horrible things it carries but you cant let it get you down forever. Well actually I already knew that from a TV show but who cares?

And there is a lot of people I like to thank. I'd like to thank my Mum And Dad.

Mum: For giving birth to me and taking good care of me till my 14th Birthday.

Dad: Helping Mum give birth to me, buying me a MP3 (Thanks Dad) and everything else he has done to make me happy.

And I know they both love me very, very, very, very, very, very much. My Brother and Twin Sisters for supporting me all the way through my birthday. I'd like to thank my grandpa, I know he's wishing me a happy birthday and wishing me a good life, good heath, to be smarter and work harder at school ( cough :} ). I would also like to thank my late grandma and I know she's up there somewhere looking down at us. I would also like to thank God for blessing and protecting all of us and giving me this great gift known as my family, friends, relatives, a house in Australia, a good school, Puterakembara and of course my asperger.

After all this experience, 2 days later my mum asked me to do this speech. At first I thought that I didn't need to do a speech but know that I know I should for this terrific birthday.

PS: This will probably be my first and and maybe last speech I will probably write. (Joking :p)

Subject: [Puterakembara] Hello dari adik Kevin (Stella & Stasia)

Lihat Kevin, kakaknya bikin speech, adik2nya tidak mau kalah juga.

Mereka (2 adik perempuannya) ikutan kasih kesan2 jadi Kevin's sisters.

Bagaimana perasaan mereka jadi siblings seorang Aspie.

(ini juga spontan dari si kembar, Stella dan Stasia, 9 tahun).

Kesan dari Stella :

---------------------------

Hello Puterakembara. My name is Stella, Kevin's sister. Having a brother

with Asperger is Okay. A couple of years before, Kevin is very different

from today. It seems that Kevin is normal now. But sometimes, he can be

angry but he can get over it really quickly. Kevin has a sense of humor that

can make my sister and I laugh. On weekends, in the afternoon, Kevin, my

sister, and I can go outside and play some games like soccer or basketball.

Sometimes we even make up games that turned out really well.

I can tell that Kevin is really good at drawing. He draws when he's bored.

On school days, when I have trouble with math homework I call Kevin to help

me. In a park, we play sport games like soccer. Or Kevin, he likes to

explore the park and finds really interesting things.

Having a brother like that is really interesting and fun. I don't really

complain about how he's acting. Sometimes I do but I know he has Asperger so

I'm fine with it

Kesan dari Stasia:

--------------------------

Hello rekan milis of puterakembara. It's me, the youngest one of the

family, Stasia. Living with Kevin has been an interesting story.

Kevin has become more like a normal boy during the past few years. He has

helped us with our work and he has quite a humor. Sometimes he can overreact

when we don't do things the way it's supposed to be (Only sometimes). Yet

when he's not, he joins us (My sister and I) with the activities we are

doing like hide and seek, paddleball, soccer and practicing our

eye-coordination. When he's bored and desperate he asks us to play hide and

seek with him.

At car trips we always play games like Guess Who, blinking contests and the

ABC game. But Kevin usually never liked going out of the house. Kevin only

likes to go to places such as basketball courts, out somewhere with his

friends, exploring nature or to a party. Kevin also likes to make crystals

out of crayons for us. He also likes to make swords out of paper. What I'm

trying to say here is that Kevin has been a great (and fun) brother to my

family and me.

Stasia, xoxo

Bu Leny,

I am speecless to read all these. What a fantastic family! Another inspiring side of Bu Leny.

Agak merinding saya membaca tulisan Kevin, terutama bagian ,"I would also like to thank God for blessing and protecting all of us and giving me this great gift known as my family, friends, relatives, a house in Australia, a good school, Puterakembara and of course my asperger'. Orang dewasa saja belum tentu dapat bersyukur dengan keadaannya. Adik2 Kevin juga sangat pengertian dan mampu bersyukur dengan kakaknya yang Aspie.

Semoga kami mampu mengikuti Bu Leny yang mampu membimbing anak dengan

baik. Selamat Ulang Tahun, Kevin!

Salam,

Darman

Wah... Terus terang, saya belum sempat baca, baru terima & hanya skip2. Tapi

kesan : Hebat Kevin... Terutama krn speechnya dalam bhs inggris (& saya gak

bisa spt ini, he he he). Tapi tersirat : sebenernya pribadi yg sederhana ya?

Gak neko-neko. Ini juga barusan lihat ada dari kembar Stella & Stasia (nama2

yg cute & lutcu).... bhs inggris juga. Hebat adaptasi anak-anak, dlm berapa

tahun (belum 5?) sdh bicara & berpikir dlm bhs sana.

Bu Leny, just when you think that they don't take things the way we think...we are hit with surprises smile The problem is that it takes perseverance to see the progress they made. Proficiat!

meaning of the life itself.

Ibu Leny dan keluarga,

Walaupun sudah terlambat saya mau mengucapkan Selamat Ulang Tahun untuk

Kevin dan Puterakembara. Saya terkesan sekali dan senyum-senyum sendiri

baca tulisannya Kevin yang cerita tentang "hari naasnya" tapi dengan

kata-kata yang lucu. Kayaknya Kevin bisa jadi penulis yang oke tuh.

Komentar-komentarnya si kembar Stella dan Stasia juga menarik sekali.

Pasti bu Leny bahagia ya punya keluarga yang rukun dan saling mendukung

walaupun setiap hari sibuk mengurus rumah dan anggota milis yang "rewel".

Bu Leny sekeluarga,

Membaca tulisan Kevin dan juga Stella dan Stasia, reaksi yang spontan

terlintas pada saya adalah berupa campuran dari macam-macam pujian yang

bagus-bagus, seperti: Hebat, Salut, Bagus Banget dan yang semacamnya.

Bukan saja isinya, tapi cara dan kemampuan mengungkapkan pikiran serta

perasaannya demikian menarik dan matang.

Hubungan yang terjalin di antara anggota keluarga seperti yang terungkap

dari tulisan-tulisan itu, sungguh begitu menyejukkan.

Selamat atas perkembangan anak-anak yang sudah mencapai tahap yang

sedemikian bagusnya.

Salam,

Stanley

Bravo Bu Leny, Kevin bisa sampai begini juga dikarenakan maminya yang hebat.
