Do you have a cherished childhood toy, figurine, or other object that you still keep? Why is it so important to you?
I have this dog-shaped stuffed animal that's been in my house since my brother was only 9 years old. (Now he's 32; so that means this buddy is already 23 years old). His name is Broni, taken from his brown color → "Brownie" → Indonesian spelling. My mother bought it for him because he always wanted a pet; and why he wanted a pet because he wanted a younger brother/sister (he was an only child for almost 11 years so I guess he was a bit lonely at that time). But plot twist: I was born a year later after she bought him Broni.
So at the end, he gave Broni to me and I still keep it as my companion in bed department. I always bring him with me every time I have a trip to countrysides (as a pillow, of course).
Writing about my brother makes me kinda miss
his cute 16-months old son aka my nephew. I once tried to make him playing with Broni but he's scared with stuffed animals :'''D
