Dearest Madame _____;
Dearest ladies of diplomatic community in
First of all, allow me to convey my deepest
appreciation to Madame _____, and all of you for hosting and arranging this
lovely farewell lunch. It is a very nice of you making this wonderful gathering
to happen, amidst your busy days preparing for Christmas and the new-year
The term of assignment of my husband will end
on 31 December 2011. We are now preparing to return to Jakarta on 3 January
My husband and I will enjoy our time there.
We will watch over our children and grandchildren, taking the pleasure of
observing them growing at close distance.
I have been living a fantastic 3.5-year life
in Sri Lanka. I am surrounded by pleasant people offering friendship to
everyone equally. I have lived far from my relatives in Indonesia, but I found warmth
of a new family here. I fervently hope that this friendship can last even if I
am not around any longer. Like my husband. I will cherish forever our memories
in Sri Lanka.
Whenever you visit Indonesia, please remember
that you have me, your friend, to meet there. Thank you.
