I woke up with a phone call this morning. From my mom. The message was more important. Nana was coming to my house in five minutes!
For those of you who are a constant blogwalker, you may have come across her blog. She has become quite a celebrity among Indonesian bloggers. With her wittiness in her postings, she has tackled some interesting and debatable issues in her blog and offered an interesting perspective to those issues.
But, Nana for me is not just a blogging fellow. In fact, blogging came along just recently into our friendship. I’ve known her for about 15 years, ever since we formed a circle of very jolly, smart, unique bestfriends in our second year of senior highschool in Salatiga. In fact, if we trace back, we probably have known each other since we were in junior highschool for we went to the same school back then. Nana and I even went further to the same department in college. The circle of bestfriends: me, Nana, Lolita, Lily and Tyas, were practically sisters. We always felt comfortable in each other’s house and we knew each and every member of each other’s family. No wonder she could just came very early in the morning (about 6 AM this morning) to my parents’ place and they welcomed her warmly because practically she was present in most of my teenager life.
So, of course, we exchanged stories, shared the happenings in our lives, gossiped about the whereabouts of the other members of the gang and our acquintances. It was just like the old times, when we could just talk for hours. It felt so good to be with her, who knew me since the very beginning. In the afternoon, we decided to go to Ada Baru supermarket, where Lolita, the other gang member, works. We haven’t seen each other for a very long time, ever since Lolita graduated from college (that must have been seven years ago!!!). And of course, we shared even more stories, pastime naughtiness that we did in senior highschool. And we kept laughing, and laughing, remembering how silly and carefree we were back then.
My point is no matter how silly and carefree we were, that was probably one of the best chapters of my life. With two of my very bestfriends, I cherish those times and I thank God for giving me the chance to relive those moments again.
Thank you, Nana and Lolita. I’m looking forward to seeing you guys again!
