“Mau pergi ke mana?”

“Ke pasar, beli pupuk.”

“Beli krupuk terus, yang kemarin aja masih belum digoreng, masa udah mau beli krupuk lagi?”


Broken Chain

She used to joke, that one day we should break the chain.

It was probably my closest and longest friendship. We lived nearby. We went to the same elementary school, the same junior high school, the same senior high school. All three different schools. We were teammate for badminton games. We joined the same theatre group. We chose the same foreign language class and we sat together in class. She accompanied me in my dates, in my first public bus experience.
