Amazing Twenty Two

Friday, October 25, 2013

Excuse for my little bit-tired-face. Trust me, I am so happy about turning a new age! 

When I was hitting the number 20 two years ago, I made a promise to make 25th October more special, at least for myself. Special means less care about how many gifts that I would recieve (yes I love gifts, especially surprises, but that's not the point on my day), but more have time for monologue and talk with God, how I am so thankful that He makes me alive and be able to walk in a new path every single year.

Everyone deserves to feel special on a birthday, so pardon me because this post is dedicated just for myself *booo*

I never imagine about how my "twenty-something" looks like, the only thing I knew when I was a teenager, the twenty me could be a successful career woman, because that is I was always dreaming about. But I found my twenty years were beyond of my imagination. I graduated from college on time, I've known so many amazing people, I do blog, my family start a business and I decided to take a part, and the most important thing, I am currently on my way to pursue a passion.

Being older is great, because I know the fact that I am still growing up and God never stop pouring His graces into my life. And I am so grateful that God let me know and have some amazing people around me. Mom and Dad that always support, comfort and pray for me. Brothers that always being my best companions and reminds me when I do something wrong (a story of a big sister have brothers to learn from). Then Andreas, the one who suddenly becomes the most important person in my life. Thank you and I love you all. 

Last, being 22 is not opening a new leaf, but keep continuing and keeping the best in this life. Be happy, because today is my day. Happy birthday to me!

My most favorite thing on my birthday this year is because I can spend the day with my family! Too bad Dad and little brother cannot join us, but it still okay. This morning Mom came into my room and said "happy birthday my baby daughter" and kissed my cheeks. It was really a sweet morning! I am not a party person, I am not throwing a birthday bash. I simply treat Mom and brother to have a dinner in our favorite chinese restaurant. We ordered some special dishes that we rarely to order. This is a special day, we can eat whatever we want! Best thing is, the restaurant have a special 30% discount, wohoo! Here goes some pictures that probably you want to see. 

Special birthday cake for a special day! I tell you, this cake is WONDERFUL! 
Thanks Mom and Bro :D

Little member of our family wants to appear in a picture too, tehee!

 Special surprise came on my day! This thing was driving me crazy! I cannot stop smiling when I opened the box. Thanks a bunch for my two members of JJK! You guys are d best, wish I can hug you two now (":

 Remember these books on my #bookswanted list? Again, special thanks for my bestfriend for sending me these babies, one week before my day, haha! Seriously, thanks (: 

One fact about my twenty two day, I got some Hello Kitty presents, this is the one of them. I think they forget that the fact I am growing up? Molla. Can you guess what's inside this cute box?

Yeay I am 22! 
Thanks my dearest God (:

Pandawa Beach | You are gonna fall in love

Monday, October 21, 2013

One day, if you come to Bali, you have to visit this place. Because guess what, you are gonna fall in love just like me. 

This wonderful and beautiful beach called Pandawa Beach. I have been here two times in a week. Last Monday I came here with friends Andre. I heard from Mom and Dad before about Pandawa Beach, they said it's really beautiful and different from the other beaches in Bali. I was so curious and then the day after my friend took us here. Gosh, this beach looks hot! People come this place usually for relaxing, you can rent a couple seat, you can read a book, sunbathing (like most of people do!) or maybe sleeping. If you want to just take some beautiful pictures, it's okay too. And oh, you can also rent a canoe with your friends, bf/gf, or anybody, just for two person in one canoe. Romantic, isn't it? I told my boyfriend when he visits me back, we should do this :P Sadly, I don't have so much time to spend, so I was just enjoying the lucent sands and water.

The second time was just few days ago. I got a sudden job to be a guide plus translator for a Chinese tourist. She came Bali alone and she can't speak English either. When I knew we would come to Pandawa Beach again, I was extremely happy! I told Kelly (yes, Chinese people have an English name which they give to themselves) this is the most beautiful beach in Bali I ever knew. When we arrived, she just couldn't blinked an eye, her eyes rounding up and she ran to the beach happily. We spend some minutes here to enjoy the view. Kelly took some seaweeds and they look like a toy, it was so elastic. She wanted to take them home but at the end she decided to let them go again in the sea. Yeah, we cannot steal what belongs to the nature, kids! 

Last week has been so hectic yet fun for me. I was tired but feel great too. Dad and little brother also my boyfriend came again, we spend quality time together, I got this job as a guide (even I am not an official tour guide) and knowing some new people. It's Monday again and back to work! A post without pictures absolutely nothing. Have a good Monday and stay awesome (:

 Yes, this is her, Kelly! 

I am not sure what supposed to call these, isn't it seaweed?

Books Wanted

Sunday, October 6, 2013

(from top left-bottom right)
I am planning to buy some books for welcoming my "twenty two", wohoo! Well honestly I want MORE than these, but I cannot remember the title of the books. I should make a list later whenever I am stumbling in a bookstore. I just realized when I'm writing this, the books I posted above are actually related each other. Two books are about "growing up" things and the others are about happiness (fun facts). Anyway, "This is What Happy Looks Like" is a novel.

So, how was your half-Sunday? Mine was pretty good. Sunday is a perfect day for me to press pause after work-days. I can watch movies, I can do a little exercises and the most of it, I can eat everything I want.
By the way, last Wednesday Mymorningroutine tweeted me that my morning routine finally up on the website! It's really weird but yet fascinating they introduced me as a writer and so entrepreneur. Wow. You can read the article right here, not really different with the one I wrote here before. Thank you so much before if you click the link and read it (: 

Happy Sunday everyone and don't forget, stay awesome!

What's in my brain before I sleep.

Saturday, October 5, 2013

1. Remember when we was a kid, we like to read our storybook while lying on the bed, then our Mom would start to yell and told us it was really bad habit because that will damage our eyes. But now, it seems sooo casual to do in front of our Mom. Like what I did last night. She didn't complain at all..

2. I was reading "Don't Sweat The Small Stuffs" last night before bed, and I was thinking teenager phase is the most short phase in our life and being adult is always be a scary thing. Being teenanger is really a wonderful thing and how lucky we are, have been living as a teenager once in our life!

3. We had an appointment yesterday in a local hotel. Either me or Mom don't know where the hotel's location. We both suck on reading maps (even sophisticated map like Google has *duh*) so yeah.. we went around and around and around again in the city. But that was good, because now we are getting know more about Denpasar, since we live here, we have to more explore, right?

4. I miss sushi-date );

5. My Mom calls me 阿姨 (a-yi), which means "aunty". Because I am always getting sleepy around 11 PM, while Mom still getting up and like to watch tv shows. This is weird because seven years ago, when the clock just striked at 10 PM, she would come into my room and start babbling why I am still up. And I still remember she always tells me that young girls have to sleep early and you will get happy skin. Right, Mom? 

Feeling super excited about nothing today. I don't even know why. I am getting my dinner now and gonna watch Freaky Friday with Mom at 8. Happy weekend beautiful people, stay awesome!

5 Pictures of Tuesday 04

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

(1) I know I have to grow up and I am going turn to twenty two very soon *spoiler spoiler lol*. But I cannot give for this cute Kitty. Sometimes, my boyfriend forgot that I am a grown-up little girl so he bought me this when he came back from China. Of course I cannot be excited anymore when I got this! Anyway, this Kitty's style reminds me to Kak Diana Rikasari, because of her big hearted-glasses :P

(2) This is a sweet gift from my friend, Etin when I turned 21 last year. I never read classic novel like this but since she knows (and have read) lots of them, she bought this for me and I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH. I don't want to spoil much about the story and maybe some of you have read this book. Two weeks ago I watched the movie version on FOX Movies. The film was great also! 

 (3) This is last week picture, when we went to Hard Rock Cafe
Our friends from Hong Kong visited us here in Bali for short escape. They wanted to go to Hard Rock and since me and Mom never bumped into this place so we went in :P
This is a sweet tooth we ordered, apple pie something, which was very good but very SWEET also.

(4) We are going outside today for work! I need something refreshing and since today it's #Octoberfirst, I asked my Mom to go outside. We are here right now in KFC, the place is wide and high speed Wi-Fi connection (this is the most important!). But the ironic thing happens. The place where we are sitting right now is no-smoking room. There's a sign in this room but the people still smoking like a boss. When Mom asked the waiter why they can smoke he just said, "There is a big window there, so they can smoke. You can move to other place there if you want." I was like "WHAT?". Oh, please..

(5) Another reminder that I got last week (:
ps: I got this on Tuesday, but I sticked to my diary entry on the nexy day, which was wednesday
