Sisterhood of Friends: Hear From The Rahajeng Twins and The Widira Sisters About Their Friendships!
29 Jul 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

Happy Friendship Day! As the famous author C.S. Lewis puts it, friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, "What! You too? I thought I was the only one!", and we found a lot of similarities between these quartet: the twins Maria and Elizabeth Rahajeng and the sisters April and Summer Widira.

While doing their latest photo session with SweetEscape for Marc Jacobs Indonesia, we talked with them about what it meant to be sisters and best friends, the qualities they look for in a friend, and what friendship moments they think should be captured by SweetEscape!

1. You’re raised together, but what are the things that are really different between the two of you?

Maria and Elizabeth Rahajeng (ME) : Maria is much calmer, while Eliza is more outgoing and outspoken. Eliza is adventurous and would try anything once spontaneously, while Maria is more of a goodie-goodie girl, so it would take her a lot of thinking before deciding to try something new or do something adventurous. People usually ask "who takes the longer time to get ready?" and we can definitely say that Eliza takes longer, while Maria gets ready in a flash.

April and Summer Widira (AS) : Summer is less active than April. When April want to do something she'd do it on the spot, like when she sees a cake in instagram that she wants to make then she'd make it right away spontaneously. Summer–on the other hand–likes writing and drawing, likes to plan and organize properly before doing stuffs.

2. What made you enjoy each other's company as sisters and friends?

ME : We love to travel a lot together, and Eliz is happy that Maria is always with her because she can be her 'personal photographer' that knows all her good angles. They're also Netflix buddies! The Rahajeng Twins are both TV junkies so they enjoy watching TV shows together.

AS : April enjoys Summer's company because she can keep a secret; when April tells Summer something she wouldn't tell anyone else. April and Summer also relate to each other so much and can talk with each other for hours without getting bored.

3. What are the qualities that you seek in a friend?

Elizabeth : Loyalty. I'll seek for someone who'll always has my back. Maybe because I'm a loyal person and I'd have my friend's back all the time so I'd expect the same from my friends. Maria : I want to be able to be 100% myself without any judgement when I'm around my friend, so that's the one quality I want from them.

The Widiras : We always seek someone who's open minded, loyal, understanding, compassionate, relatable, and most importantly, they need to have a lot of things in common with us, so we can talk about things that we like together!

4. If there's one MOMENT that you want a professional photographer capture, what would that be?

Elizabeth : When one day someone proposes to me, I would like a proper, professional photographer to document the moment for me! Maria : I think yes, I would like to document why love journey, but also something as simple as when I'm having a sleepover with my girl-friends! I think that would be fun to capture into some beautiful photos.

The Widiras : April would love it for a photographer to capture me when I'm baking! But also, we are both football fan and we love playing football, so it would be nice if there could be a photographer taking pictures of us in action!
