“Wow,wow,wow” for President Obama, he’s such global phenomenon, support around the world, while some of them turned out to be peculiar response 😛
In Indonesia, people got so excited and made sensation by the chance of this selection. What’s that? I guess, you have correctly answered it. Obama ever stayed in Indonesia around 1969-1971 and during his stay, he lived in Jalan Taman Amir Hamzah No 22, Menteng from 1970-1971, paying monthly rent to the owner, Tata Aboe Bakar. And the 1,200 sqm house now became so expensive, was offered to 150billions Rupiah (abt 15 mios USD). It’s in the media that in the last six months, the Dutch, American enterpreneur and a Native Indonesian who confessed as US embassy representative were interested in buying the house, OMG.. Can you believe it??
And hereee… there’s one city in Japan also really take interest in US President election, just because it shares the same name to the elected President Obama. Yup, it’s Obama city in Fukui Prefecalso tture! In Japanese, Obama(小浜） means little beach, with the population about 32,000 people, fewer numbers as compared to the crowds that showed up in the campaign, but they also expressed excitement in their own way. Before the election, there’s a man who own confectionery shop, promised to share the cakes to everybody for free if Obama’s elected as President. You can find lots of covering story, posters of “I Love Obama”, also the Japanese version song of Barack Obama that’s played so frequent. haha.. It’s specially brought to you by Anyone Brothers Band( エニワン・ブラザース・バンド).
Maybe it’s nice and interesting when you first listen to it, but if you keep on finding this song in every corner of the city, I guess you’re gettin sick of what so called “catchy cute song” and then shouting “No more Obama Song, pleaseeee.. I cant stand it anymore”.. hahaha..
So what’ the moral of the story?
Please be kind to everybody, because life’s like a wheel.. You never know what will happen in the future. They can turn out to be famous, and you can be proud of knowing them, or if you have the signature or their stuffs, it’ll be pricey. Haha, no no.. I guess you’re pretty matured to make your own moral of the story behind these phenomenons. hihihi.. So, anyone wants my signature before I become public figure? hihihi..
Last but not least, please enjoy the barack obama song. It’s “awesome”!
