You know what made my day?
My uncle came back from Jakarta and visited our home. I haven't seen him or talked to him for..10 years.
And then I saw my cousin! I can't remember his face the last time I saw him. I can't even remember if we had ever talked before.
I recall shopping with his sister when we were young and nothing else.
But when I saw him and my uncle, my eyes just lighted up and I embraced them.
Maybe it's a little awkward, like when I hugged my cousin whom I might not have talked to in the past.
My bad, I was a super shy girl.
These years, I could only see him and his sister through Instagram, just like what I did to my other cousins in Jakarta. And I realize that we've all grown up. He is super tall. And he seems friendly. While my uncle, he's getting fatter lol. They are my family and as ridiculous as it sounds, I really want to get to know them.
Sometimes I envy people with big family and close relatives. I do. I have one brother who confines himself 80% of the time. Cousins would be nice you know...
