Rani Nugraha Reader Find

By Rani Nugraha in Cool Websites on Friday 25 May 2012

Somewhere not that deep inside of me, there’s a fifteen year old girl who loves Blink 182, Airwalk treads and a guy called Bernard who hung out with his cargos around the plump rounds of his backside at the half-pipe around the corner from the footy field.

Rani Nugraha Reader Find

By Rani Nugraha in Video on Tuesday 8 May 2012
