Anto
Hi Man. Fancy meeting you here. Where have you been?
Maman
Great to see again, An. I’ve been fine. What about you?
Anto
Good, too.  Where do you live now. I heard that you had moved to Bandung. Are you on holiday now here in Jakarta?
Maman
That’s true.  I am here accompanying my wife. She is visiting her relative who is ill.
Anto
Did you move to Bandung to get promoted?
Maman
Well, in fact, I resigned and looked for a job in Bandung. My wife’s uncle runs a small business and I have been accepted there to help him.
Anto
That’s good. Is there any vacancy there?
Maman
Are you still jobless?
Anto
Yes. I’ve been trying hard to get a job here in Jakarta but found nothing yet that suits my qualification.
Maman
Keep trying, bro. Hope you'll be successful. Well, I’ve got to be in a hurry now, An.  I’ll keep in touch with you again. May I have your phone number?
