My sister and I are 2 years apart. She only came into this world when I was already 2, all princess-y and demanding.
So we grew up very close to each other. Apparently we have similar taste to everything.
Football (But she doesn’t follow football anymore nowadays. Boring. Sigh)
But except for boys. Hehehe.
Mom would put us in matching clothes and I loved it! I would be so proud holding my sister’s hand, and she would smile too. You guys, I can tell you in 10 different posts about my sister and I. Secretly, I adored her and wanted to be her. When she is working in Cepu, I’d sneak into her room and just steal one of her pens to feel close to her. Funny, the more weirdo you are to one another, the more you love each other.
Fine. I was an idiot. Haha.
Anyway, blood is thicker than water. And like most siblings, we grew closer and closer as we grow older and realize we needed each other to cover up when one is sneaking off to a mall with her friends.
“Where’s Regi?” My Mom would ask.
She’s really in somewhere having fun with her friends.
“Where’s Astry?” My mom would ask.
“I don’t know anything! She is NOT at a mall.”
Not such a good liar, my sister.
With my sister and I, we really got closer when I went off to Kuala Lumpur. I missed her so much that I would call her everyday when I was walking to the tube station to go to work. And then when I got off the tube station, I’d continue our call until I got to the office. And then again after office. I don’t know how we have so much to say to each other everyday. Until now!
I’ll let you in on a little secret. My sister and I have a “Sister’s Day”. First week of every month, it would be our day to spend time together, sleep together at the same room and stuff. It’s silly but it brings us closer. We’d get excited. When we getting married, we’re going to have our Sister’s Day every 1st of June, sleepover and stuff. *wink wink*
Today is our Sister’s Day. She is having a field break from work for one week. Arrived home at 6.30am yesterday, instead of slept, we talked for hours. About love, life, career, make-up, everything in the bedroom. I cooked her favorite dish too! Well, technically I cook everyday.
(I’m wearing my new everyday necklace, with nude top and batik pants. They’re so simple and elegant!)
With all those food in our stomachs, my sister and I even made a pact to go to become runner and swimmer buddies and go for a run and swim every morning after Subuh. We paused for a second, laughed at our wishful thinking and ate some more. Run? Swim? hahahahah. You really say the silliest things when you’re full.
I love you Regi. I was forced to say that as a child, but now, the love is somewhat there and it’s totally my choice! It’s always been just the two of us and I’m so grateful I have a sister like you (wouldn’t be saying that 10 years ago). Happy Sister’s Day!
