My mom came into my room yesterday morning and gave me an envelope. Apparently it's a letter that I wrote to my older sister, Lia, back in January 1984; 24 years ago. I laughed to see it's written that I gave her 200 rupiah. I believe I gave that as 'uang jajan' for her. Sweet, eh?
I suddenly realized that I do love writing letters. I'm still keeping some boxes which have letters in it. I wrote letters to some of my class mates, school mates, and even my best friend's cousin. And when I graduate high school, I still wrote my ex school mates letters. Hand writing ones. But most of them doesn't like to write me back. They usually call me soon as they got the letter.
Nowadays, I never write handwriting letters anymore. I write any message through e-mail. It's simple, cheap, and easy. But if I have a chance, yea, I'd love to write some, again. Oh, my handwriting is much better now, for sure :)
