Last weekend, I cleaned my family old photographs, 20-30 years old printed photographs that require photo-album then a drawer to place them. How I bless digital life! I threw away many old pics, mostly pictures of my parents’ acquaintances, less likely my dad wants too see those pictures again.
My favorite old pictures, of course, our family vacation! I do realized where “ada rejeki lebih kepakai untuk liburan” gens comes from.
Extra money always went to a trip…in my dad case. He took us for annual vacation. At least once a year. We already went to Gili Trawangan in early 90’s when the island was very very quite and isolated.
I remember asking dad why he kept our old family car Suzuki Esteem for almost a decade while our neighbors changed theirs every 2-3 years, he said he better used his bonus to take us around. Priority then.
Even he could afford another family car, he choose not. Saya disuruh naik Kopaja kemana mana. I use to hate it, but somehow that explains why sampai saat ini ngga suka nyetir :)) Unlike any other commuters living in big cities, I don’t enjoy being inside the car, both as a driver and passenger.
Anyway, Of coursee….like any trip, taking a photo is A MUST! Since it was a camera-rolled film era, harus irit pakai Fuji film isi 36-nya! :)) we had to save those film! Hence, for me having self portrait was really a privilege at that time.
Then I found these pics. It was taken during our trip to Perth. I was 17-18, I guess.
To save film (camera), I had to take a picture on the same frame with my sister, while my brother —- being the only son in the family had a privilege having a self portrait! Duh! :))
Dan sekalinya dapat kesempatan bisa foto sendiri-sendiri, it was Chao Praya at the background! Ngga ada beda sama Sungai Batanghari-Jambi! :)) :))
Dan yang namanya lihat foto foto lama, seeing pictures of your old relatives who no longer around us gave shivers.
My late mom and us in Colorado.
My eyes some-what get wet, everytime I hear this song.
We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
And time’s forever frozen still
