Classic Ice Cream

21 Aug

One day, I entered an ice cream café and ordered a cup of coco-ice cream. When I tasted the coco-ice cream, there was a funny experience. Suddenly, this ice cream reminded me about my childhood. How come? Did you ever have the same experience? When you found ‘something’ that you didn’t see for a long time, it made you remembering about your activities in the past and you miss it so much. That’s what happened to me.

I remember when I was a child, my mom always fill out the refrigerator with my favorite ice cream, Manna Ice Cream, because she knew that I love this ice cream very much and so did my friends. After school time, my friends came to my house to eat ice cream together.

Manna Ice Cream is a local brand, and it was a famous brand. Every store used to sell this ice cream. It produces many kind of ice cream taste, such as chocolate, coconut, durian, strawberry, tutti-frutti, etc. Now, I can tell you that the taste of ice cream is so very ‘classic’ and so 90’s! Lol. Yea, when I tasted this ice cream, I remembered about that time. My little friends, my old neighborhood, my yard, and ‘pong-pong’, my cat…

Overall, I surprised to know that this ice cream still exist in this time, because for a long time, I didn’t see this product anymore. I know, there are many brands of ice cream products, and it might be tough in rivalry. The seller told me ‘Now, Manna Ice Cream only can be found at this place’.

Lovely Family

Family….
What do you think about this word? And what are you wish for? Currently, I’m learning this word after I watched serials movie, Parenthood. I really love this serials movie and very recommended to watch. This movie tells us about ‘what a family means’? It’s not a simple thing because every family has their own problems, but the main point is how we solve the problem? Surely, family support has a big role to solve problems in daily life, and the Braverman proved it. Day by day, problems always come in their life, and this family shows us how they handled the problems and so amazing! It’s all about ‘take and give’ and also ‘honesty’. Well, nobody’s perfect, we know that, then? Respecting between parent and their children is an important thing, whatever he/ she is.

First time, I surprised to know that Braverman still keep their relations among the family members as family’s tradition, because I thought that this extended-family’s relation only appears in East (Is that true that most of the families in West still maintain the idea of extended-family?).

Every week, they do ‘a family meeting’, share their daily experiences, and discuss together. I think that this is an ideal family type 😉
I wish that someday I found this family type.
