i (still) wanna be a..

i have just watched history channel on tv with my mum. thank you iptv, we all can watch our favourite tv shows whenever we want and repeat them all over again :D

we watched my mum's favourite show: hidden cities. this show brought us to see the hidden, ancient places all over the world. in this episode they brought us here, to our beloved Indonesia, precisely around central Java. 

the adventure started with exploring hidden bunkers and fortresses made by Japanese (not literally 'made' by japanese of course, Indonesian romushas built them when we were still being colonized), then we had an great trip in a really old train from the Dutch colonial era (it's amazing  how the old engine still work till today) from ambarawa to semarang, the city where we found the house of thousand door (indeed it is the translation of the words lawang sewu -_-, oh here is the link, i once wrote it on one of my post --> lawang sewu). lawang sewu was once an train office made during the Japanese occupation, which have a large dungeon as a place for torturing the prisoners of the japanese. leaving semarang, we were guided to see a former palace in kotagede, before we continued to the palace that is still working till now --> keraton yogyakarta.

the last parts of the show brought us to explore the temples, the ruined ones and the restored ones. started with ratu boko temple and ended with the famous prambanan temple. these last parts of the episode reminds me of one of my dream when i was a kid:
i wanted to be an archaeologist. i really did.

i thought it'll be real satisfying to dig those soils and crash those rocks to finally found ancient building that buried deep hundred years ago and bring them up to the surface. or maybe we can found the skeletons of primordial humans, or even a treasure trove. yeah who knows. haha.

you know, i still wanna be an archaeologist. i still wanna be a cook, a pianist, and an astronomer too, deep, here *pointing to my heart*.

our childhood dreams were always more colourful than ever, weren't they?
