Matahari bersinar terang, hari sudah pagi! Putri Lula menguap dan memaksakan diri bangun dari tempat tidur dan pergi mandi. “Semalam aku tidak bisa tidur nyenyak. Aku masih memikirkan sepatu biruku yang hilang,” gumamnya. Dia menarik tali bel untuk memanggil dayang supaya membereskan kamarnya. Sementara itu, Putri Lula bersiap untuk sarapan dan pergi belajar. (The sun is shining bright, the morning comes! Princess Lula yawns and makes her way from bed into the shower. “I didn’t sleep well last night. I kept thinking of my missing blue shoes,” she mumbles. She sounds the bell to call her servants to clean the room. Meanwhile, Princess Lula prepares for breakfast and studies.)

 Si dayang terkejut melihat kamar Putri Lula. “Berantakan sekali! Barang-barang berserakan di mana-mana. Aku tak tahu letak asal semua ini. Kalau salah menyimpan, Putri Lula marah,” gerutu si dayang. Karena bingung, si dayang pun tidak membereskan kamar Putri Lula. (The servant is surprised to see Princess Lula’s bedroom. “What a mess! Everything is lying around all over. I don’t even know where they were. If I misplace them, Princess Lula will be upset,” says the servant. Confused, the servant ended up not cleaning the princess’ bedroom.)

 Di negeri peri, Ratu Peri memanggil Mimi si peri kamar. “Putri Lula harus membereskan kamarnya sendiri,” perintah Ratu Peri. Mimi mengangguk patuh. (In the land of fairies, the Fairy Queen calls Mimi the room fairy. “Princess Lula must clean her own room,” commands the Fairy Queen. Mimi nods in obedience.)

 Sekembalinya dari pelajaran, Putri Lula marah karena kamarnya belum dibereskan. “Si dayang akan kumarahi!” serunya. Tiba-tiba, lilin di kamar Putri Lula padam dan Mimi pun muncul. “Aku Mimi, peri kamar. Kau tidak boleh memarahi si dayang, Putri Lula. Membereskan kamar tidurmu adalah tugasmu sendiri. Kalau kamar berantakan, kau tidak bisa tidur, kan?” tanya Mimi. (As she return from her studies, Princess Lula is upset because her room has not been made. “I will yell at the servant!” she says. Suddenly, the candle in Princess Lula’s bedroom blows off and Mimi appears. “I am Mimi, the room fairy. You mustn’t be mad at the servant. Cleaning your bedroom is your responsibility. If it is a mess you won’t be able to sleep, can you?” Mimi asks.)

 Putri Lula pun mulai membereskan kamarnya sendiri. “Ah! Ini sepatu biruku yang sudah lama kucari! Kukira hilang!” seru Putri Lula senang. “Kalau kau membereskan kamar sendiri, kau akan tahu letak semua barangmu. Dan tidak akan ada barang yang hilang,” nasihat Mimi. (Princess Lula then starts cleaning her own room. “Ah! Here are my blue shoes I’ve been looking for! I thought they’re gone!” says Princess Lula in excitement. “If you clean your own room, you’ll know where all your belongings are. You won’t lose any items of yours,” Mimi advises.)

 Akhirnya, Putri Lula bisa tidur dengan nyenyak. Keesokan harinya, dia bangun dengan badan segar dan perasaan bahagia. “Mulai sekarang, aku tidak akan menyusahkan dayang-dayangku lagi. Aku akan membereskan kamar tidurku sendiri,” ucap Putri Lula. (Finally Princess Lula is able to sleep well. The next day, she wakes up feeling refreshed and joyful. “From now on I won’t give much trouble to my servants. I will clean my own bedroom,” Princess Lula says.)
