this used to be their playground

my grandmother from my mother's side used to live in jakarta, but because of this and that, she has decided to move in with her sister, who lives alone in an old house in bandung.

generation to generation has been living in this house. the last generation who lives here were my grandmother's sister and her husband. but after her husband passed away last year, she then lives alone in that old-style big house. a house which has many rooms with high ceilings, you know those kind of old-style houses. both my grandmothers decided to sell the house because of the high-maintanance, and moving into a smaller house. but they haven't found a buyer yet nor a new house.

meanwhile, they're already starting to pack and give away old things that are scattered all over the house. me? instantly happy to explooore the house looking for goodies to steal. hahaha. like these chairs ;) i'm sure no one would like to have these. see.. :))

this is the current living room of the house, which is daily quiet (no one's around). the picture was taken on Idul Adha day, when the family gathered around after the morning prayer.


and i got these from exploring! ;)
