"We change our dreams, but we never change our friends" - Nela

At the end of this year (last year actually), was very lucky to enjoy this small town again. The city where I spent most of my teenage years, has changed a lot. Yap anything could changed, no exception, and at the beginning of this year, I want to make a change for the better. But for sure, I do not want to change my friends.
Wearing my dad's caramel shirt, which must be oversized on me. But I felt comfy with that. Especially with pale green Converse shoes which always be there for me, hahaha. Met up with my bff, Nela, enjoying the fresh air, the memories, while trying the iconic Ronde Jago. A very fine day, to remember how our past and present. Life lessons that make people changes.

Randomly found old picture of Salatiga small town from Salatiga Photo Archives
Seeing the "old" us, then we realized that we had a lot of changes. So interesting.
