A Letter to My Sister - Happy Birthday!

 So annoying this girl is.
Lol, jk. Actually I was the annoying one when we were kids.

 I can barely remember our childhood, but I do remember it was a happy one.

We played A LOT. Our parents kind of spoiled us with toys and such, and there were many times we played along with our cousins too. We played so many games that often we invented our own games (with our own rules) because hide and seek or tag&chase were not that much fun anymore.

 You loved drawing since as far back as I can remember. And you were very good at it. I mean, a 7 yo kid who can draw Dewi Kwan Im with watercolor is really something right. You also loved to draw Sailor Moon from head to toe, while I couldn't even draw Doraemon, and I found it really cool to have an ability like that, so I followed you around everywhere, to the point that made you annoyed hahaha..

I remember there was one time when mom bought us dolls; rabbit for you and bear for me. And after a few minutes of playing with each other's toys, I began to think that your rabbit was cuter than my bear (I couldn't recall what you did with the rabbit that made me think that way), and then I asked you to switch it, and you big-heartedly did. Then, we continued to play with the switched toys, but I selfishly asked you to switch it again because now I think the bear was cuter! And with a slight feeling of resistance, you agreed once more. Then after only 5 to 10 minutes of re-playing, I ungratefully asked to switch it again wtf! But this time you had your limit and you slammed your rabbit to the floor and yelled,


I guess I deserved that.

 We fought a lot when we were kids. And when we fought, we fought hard. We clawed, we kicked, we pulled hair, we pinched (using nails wtf). It happened until we were about 15-16 years old. But the fight was always short-term, and then we played and laughed again.

We were close, but not that close. There were times when we were distant; I think it was around Junior High School? We mostly spent time with each other’s friends and we rarely talked about private matters. Sometimes I saw you were making troubles at school, and I knew you were so angry about something. But I chose not to ask, because we did not do that. It would be awkward, I thought.

You were a very grumpy teenager, yet you’ve always had a kind heart and loved to help people without expecting anything in return. I love and respect you for that. I will never forget how you helped me with my art project until 3 o’clock in the morning while you had to wake up at 6.

I will also never forget that one time when you kicked that boy who’d disturbed me when I was in the kindergarten haha.. You’ve always been protective of me.

  Anyway, we began to really “share” our thoughts and feelings around High School. I was so happy when you finally decided to open up to me! I felt like at last you saw me as an equal whom you could trust. And after that first time, you basically cannot stop sharing, cos I am such a good listener right hahaha..

With you opening up to me, I slowly began to open up too. And as time went by, we’ve become this super close and unbreakable sisters who share everything haha.. Every little thing that we experienced, we can’t wait to share it with each other. Except our friends’ secrets lah, don’t worry :))

 I think GOWIGASA (our online clothing store) has also played a big role in our relationship. It’s made us a team. We have a common goal and there have been a lot of unique experience, and doing it together has made our bond even stronger.

But come to think of it, if we hadn’t had a strong bond before, we would’ve hated each other by now haha, because when it comes to doing business with family, blood isn’t always thicker than water. We still fight, except this time we just won’t talk to each other for several hours hehe..

So, now you, our lovely readers, know why GOWIGASA means so much to us :)

 I’m also glad that we share similar hobbies and interests, character, mindset, sense of humor, and also the same taste in art. But luckily we never fall for the same guy. But if it happens someday, I’m 1000000% sure it won’t be a problem for us. Always sisters before misters! :)

 Now you’ve grown into a beautiful, independent woman with so much to look forward to. I’m so happy that you’ve matured so much over the past few years; you are more positive and less grumpy now hehe. I’m sure a bright future is ahead of you. :)

Looking back, I guess what really drew me to you was your high self-confidence and spirit.
I hope you will never lose them. :)
But if you do, I will always be by your side to remind you just how strong you really are, and nothing could break us down as long as we have each other.

Happy birthday once again, the best sister in the world! I miss you so much!!

Your annoying little sister.

  16. Ci Elle and ci Jess..
    i really love this post!
    And i want to let you both know that i actually inspired *and envy* by your sister-relationship.
    i once said to myself in 2011 : "i wish i have a sister who can get along with me just like these yamada's sisters."
    i have a sister but i didn't really know her and we didn't get along together tho. then by envying you guys, i came up with a decision that i will make my own yamada's sisters kind of relationship.
    so i tried to get along with my sister. until i finally think my relationship with my sister is now as good as yours. i can even tell whats on her mind, and she even can tell what i want in a store. she's now more than just a sister to me. she's my best friend too!
    do you know how big your positive impact is?
    i always wanted to tell you guys this but i never had the right moment to. so i guess now is.
    i want to take a moment to thank ci Elle and ci Jess, for being my role model. thank you so much!
    God bless you both abundantly! i'm so grateful to have the chance to know yamada's sisters on the internet. xx

  17. ahh, really a sweet post baby! i really enjoy this post
    nice to know you anyway :)

  18. Awww lovely post and very quirky sweet images of both of you.
