A few months ago, I attended the book launch of @Generasi90an and brought a copy of the book to the office. As everyone at FDHQ grew up in the same decade, we love how this book brought so much laughter by letting us reminisce about the past. Grouped into six chapters, the book instantly took us down the memory lane of what Generation Y watched, heard, wore, read, and played. It illustrates nearly everything we thought we forgot about, from memorable scenes on the silver screen (remember how Atun got stuck on Engkong’s tanjidor in Si Doel Anak Sekolahan?), to our favorite gadgets (“Tidit.. Pagerku berbunyi…”), to hot catchphrases of the day (Main gembot bikin pusing, dulu gembrot kok sekarang langsing!), to fashion styles that you used to love.
Who here used to tie plaid shirts or parachute jacket around their waist? It’s time to ‘fess up!
The It-watch: Baby G! A quoted from the book, “Ini jam ibaratnya kaya naik haji bagi generasi 90an. Wajib punya bila mampu!”.
And that ‘sinful’ tattoo choker necklace! I actually owned two of them! *blushing*
If reading the book wasn’t enough for you to recall the heyday of the 90s generation, then you mark your calendars for this most awaited event.
