I feels like it's been long time since my last post. I am sure we all have special friend who has been there for us even at our lowest, now i would like to invite you guys to share your stories on comment below about "THE SWEETEST THING YOUR FRIEND DID THAT COMPLETELY CHANGED YOUR LIFE"
For me, it was long time a go when my BFF saw how broke i was after my father passed away, and he signed me up for a therapy workshop that cost him 12mio! it worked and helped me find peace. and for that i would eternally be grateful.
And then another story when i was going to celebrate my birthday this year on last july after so many years i skipped it, jet like typically indonesian and asian culture that someone who celebrate birthday has to treat colleagues and friends to a dinner or drinks. then i invited my friend, she is Australian, and she told me " Nabiel, No fucking way, where we come from if its your birthday, your friend will celebrate it by taking YOU out and paying for everything, not the other way round," and so she lead by example and took me out for dinner and booze, one of best birtday of my life.

So guys please tell me your story in the comment, can't wait to read your story.
Let's spread love and good words.
