Beach Harassment

Went to the beach alone. Had 3 different men bother me in 10 minutes. One of them asked me to join him to go to another beach and basically wouldn't walk away until I made up a fake story about my (fake) husband in Lombok.

Kaget & Takut Banget

Saya jalan bersama teman saya. Sekitar jam 8 kurang selepas Adzan Isya. Dijalan yang memang sepi, tapi biasanya jam segini tidk ada apa-apa. Ada seorang cowo naik motor terus megang pantat saya. Saya diem saya kaget takut banget. Dia ga ngomong apa-apa. Tiba-tiba kayak gitu. Dia matiin lampu motornya. Jadi saya ga sadar kalo ada motor diblkg saya. Saya ga bisa teriak karna saya kaget banget. Ini pertama kali. :(
