Anugerah Terindah Yang Pernah Kumiliki
— Sheila On 7
The first time I heard thing song was years ago when I was in my early teens (oh my I’m ancient) when my parents bought a new cellphone from Nokia and they were giving out a container with a mini CD that has a list of five songs. They had three English songs, a Chinese song, and this. Back then when CD players were a thing, I used to fit this mini CD in and just play this track. I’m not sure why back then.
But now that I am somewhat older, listening to this makes me feel thankful. The title literally means The Most Beautiful Gift I Ever Had. This song has been around for 15 years, and each time my music player randomly plays this song, I would stop my train of thoughts, listen to the lyrics, and thought of those who are dear to me. Each and every single time.
The only reason I haven’t broke down in missing home and my family is because as I caught myself thinking about them and how I miss them all, I shy away from that topic in my head, and think of something else abruptly.
