Friends: new friends, old friends, good friends

Inspired by Farika's writing (tuh Friks aku tulis nama kamu hihi) about old & new friends.

I can proudly say that i have many friends as long as i live, beside the fact that i'm a loveable person (hehe) also the fact that i have live in 3 different cities. Yes, i was born in Jakarta, then move to Tangerang until i was in 1st grade of senior high school, then move to Tasikmalaya when my dad passed away and back to Jakarta for college until now.

When i was in Tangerang, i have 2 friends (Diki & Devi) that always go to school (from kindergarten and elementary school) together by Becak back then, they are siblings that live next to my house. We are so close until the day we went to different junior high school.

And then when i was in junior high school i become member of a cool gank (yes girls gank, such a trend back then), they are Heni, Nena, and Annie. We always go together and we even support each other when we have 1st crush on boy. And again we become separate when we went to different senior high school, new friends, new environment, new activities, new excitement has slowly break us apart eventhough i went to the same school with Heni.

In senior high school i have new gank with Adjie, Evan, Esti, Elni & Ria. We were at the same class back then and i was head of the class. Adjie & Evan are sit together, Esti & Elni together and me & Ria together, we are such a perfect combination. We are so click, we always hang out together even during the weekend. If there is boy who approaches one of us, they have to get Adjie & Evan's approval vice versa with them. And then i have Evi, Reni, Ani, Riris, Rika, Sugih, Dewi as my new gank when i was in Tasik.

College was different story, as i have to move to Jakarta for college. My new friends are Aee (still in touch until now), Esther (she's in Hawaii now), Ria & Icha. And now i have Noni & Eko, Febi, Pitroy, Aimi & Bang Oji, Bamby, Sam, Egi, Evi & Devim, Sam & Yuli, Melly they all are Aee's friends from junior high school. What a big circle ya...

I met Febi when i start working at Bates, Febi is Aee's friends from junior high school. I also met Fanny & Dina, we become inseparable, we always go clubbing together, yes we have something in common :). I also met Iin, Ncus, Farce, Grace, Lee-a, Cinta, Lupi, Deli, Truli at Bates newer era. Until today we manage to hang out together once in a while to update about our live.

I would say that McCann was my great era, coz i met so many friends there. Dini, Keke, Farika, Sisi, Miranda, Sanny, Telly, Sari, Mia, Gaby, Joyce, Lilian to name a few. They gave new color to my life, coz from these girls i can understand more about life and married life of course he he he

FCBers are so crazy, they are "banci tampil", they always do creative pose for photography. Laugh and bitterness colide and become the glue that make us together. I met Wenni when i was working at FCB, she was my client who apparently become gosip friend, late night SMS friend :)...
Friendship after profesionalism is to explain my relationship with her.

Thanks to Asti, now i have new circle of friends: Anita, Melly, Prila & Dinar. With these new circle i have widen the opportunity to meet new people as Anita & Prila are not agency's people, it's good to go out side of agency's environtment sometimes hehehe...

I wouldn't categorized them in certain groups. I wouldn't say my friends from kindergarten to senior high school as my old friends, and my friends from college to FCBers as my new friends. I would say they all are my friends and they all good friends of mine.

With them, i have been thru so many things and thanks to them i can be here at the moment and somehow they have helped me to be who i am now.

I love you all...
