    Lama, lama sekali ga pernah mengunjungi Warung ini. Selepas bekerja dan mengurus usaha, entah mengapa kok pengen datang ke warung ini. Sambil menyeruput Jus Melon, saya menikmati hidangan di warung ini. Oh my God, my english is not good. Tapi, kata Bondan Winarno, “Maknyus!”.Kalo kata Benu Boelu,”Enak-enak pemirsa, markotop!”. Sajiannya, “Mmmm….yummi!”, kata Si Farah.

    Oke lah kalo begitu, saya sudah kenyang. Besok, tak ke warung ini lagi untuk menyantap menu yang lain.

    Hahahaha…saya dah di warung ini lagi. Mmmm…mau menikmati apa, jadi bingung, menunya banyak sih.

    Jangan ditanya konsisten atau tidak, pasti sudah tahu jawabannya, eng ing eng.

    Berbagai usaha telah dijalani dan dilalui, tak semudah yang dibayangkan, dan ditutup. Akhirnya, dibukalah MilzamMie, alhamdulillah sudah akan membuka cabang. Kapan-kapan dolan ke MilzamMie.

    Pekerjaan, meneruskan jejak almarhum, jadi tidak usah disebutkan nama perusahaannya, pasti sudah tahu.

    Kalau sudah di Surabaya, tak hubungi.

    Mmmm….sudah kenyang nih, lagi program diet. Kapan-kapan tak dolan kesini lagi.

    Sukses untuk semua!
