Magelang - The City of Hope6:49:00 AM
So, I spent my weekend at my hometown, Magelang, and for the first time in my entire life, I was able to capture some landmarks here in town while walking around spent the Saturday night with my bestie, Aira. But maybe I'm not too good capturing moment, since I ended up regretting why I'm not taking this and that when I'm home. Hiks.
When I was a kid, Magelang called as "The City of Hope" formerly, but it changes into "The City of Million Flowers" few years back (which I don't know the reason behind the changes). I personally love the former named (sounds cooler, no?), its like the town brings positives spirits for everyone inside town, hangs people's hopes when other city can't, and as an escaping place for those who seeking of peace.
I love this town so much, not just because I was born and grew up here, but for every pieces that this town offered to. Clean and fresh air, two mountains as view, clean and large roads, good pavements, and others that many big cities and towns can't offer. Not that I'm not loving my current place to live, but hey, I think it's a good sign if you still love your hometown even when you're not around :)
