Tiba-tiba Youtube menyarankan untuk menonton kembali serial Felicity. Ah, ya, Felicity. This series holds special place in my heart because it is not only about the series itself, but also about Hawaii.
It was back in 2006 when I first started the very beginning of my life adventure and Manoa, Hawaii is the special, and beautiful place that I was destined to be. Being the first timer as a sojourn, I encountered many new things that life had to offer at that time- too many to mention and Felicity is one of them.
I don’t exactly remember how I got to know Felicity for the first time, maybe it was via my dorm friends or other means, I can’t recall. Yet, I do remember that I was a huge addict of Netflix, so much different from the today’s Netflix. Streaming a movie at that time was yet to be a norm, so I was subscribed to the Netflix program that offered me a send-your-favorite-movies or series-to-your-mailbox plan. As a student relying herself on the limited stipend, I chose the basic plan: to have one DVD on one delivery. Long story short, I got hooked on these Felicity & Ben series so I always rushed myself to finish the DVD, send it back via the closest USPS mailbox in front of Hale Kuahine and could not wait until I opened my mailbox for the next series. One time I enjoyed the series while sipping the hot tea in my tiny yet comfy room overlooking the Manoa hill. Another time, I’d watch it covering my body with some soft blanket because the rain falling in Manoa hill brought some chills with it. Ah those old days!
Now so much has changed with all the internet culture and Netflix plan and program, yet Felicity & Ben, the Old Netflix, Hale Kuahine, and Manoa will forever have some soft spots in this heart of mine.
