Lihat photo orak-arik, jadi ingat masa kecilku. Ibu-ku selalu membiasakan aku untuk sarapan pagi, sebelum berangkat sekolah. Biasanya selalu ada susu (kadang2 plus coklat), roti tawar isi meses atau kadang2 my mother bikin orak-arik, talor + kubis + potongan daging panggang.....hmmm enak.
Kenangan yg tak mungkin kembali.
