Morning Notes

Thursday, February 26, 2015

Lately I feel that God has taught me a lot about being patience, less worrying about life and surrender all things to Him. Now I become less grumbling and complaining, and surprisingly I found myself simply enjoying my days. Finding yourself in another (better) version of you, sometimes, it feel weird but feel great too. I believe in process. We somehow never knew where God leads us to, as long as I follow Him through His plan, everything is gonna be fine. Perhaps it will turn out so much better than you imagined before.

This Song Stucks in My Head

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

It becomes my cardio playlist, it becomes my morning jam, it becomes my mood booster, it stucks in my head like forever. Someone has said to me, EXO's songs are totally eargasm. I agree.

College Years: Story and Some Tips

Sunday, February 22, 2015

I rarely (or never) talked about my college years in this blog. It was almost two years since I've graduated, everything was changed ever since. The transition being a college student into an adult-life, seriously has driven me crazy. Here some lessons and tips (and pictures!) that I would like to share to with you all about my college years.

Yeah this is me on my first year in college. Literally, a freshman!

The Year of Ram

Thursday, February 19, 2015

Happy Chinese New Year for those who celebrate! This is our second time, spending Chinese New Year without our big family members, since we moved to Bali. It's weird feeling because here in Bali doesn't celebrate Lunar's Day, except for the local Chinese. But it's great and I feel blessed, I could spend time at home with family, enjoy our feast together and of course... receiving hóngbāo, a.k.a the red pockets! 

Since the morning, we have been busy caliing our family and friends to greet them. We were so busy passing over our phone to say new year's wishes. My favorite part when I called my grandma. She always sounds cheerful and happy, asking how's everyone going. Back then before we move here, when it comes to Chinese New Year, I'm always looking forward to my grandma's cooking. Her speciality of course something made from pork, I totally forgot what it calls haha. But I hope next time I could taste her cooking again.

I hope everyone of you having a great time today. Once again, may the new year brings many good things and blessings to us. Stay awesome!

Fine Sunday

Sunday, February 8, 2015

Hello universe. Last week, I got friends came here for their honeymoon. Yes, they are newlyweds! Since they didn't plan anything for the honeymoon, they asked me to join with them. This was my second time joining a friend's honeymoon in Bali, should I proud of it? Haha. But this time was really really a great one.

Let's just straight with some pictures, shall we?

I didn't bring my camera that day, so Ci Dinda was in charge to take the pictures. And of course, Ko Steve was in charge to take our pictures and he was like "foto lagi?", every time the food arrived on the table then us girls began to take food photos. Namanya juga peyempuan, Ko! :P

Can you guess already where we had our dinner? Yes, it's a tiny little nice Greek restaurant called Souvlaki Greek Restaurant or Warung Souvlaki. I love the ambience and the blue colored theme helps us to release. The food was okay, 7,5 from 10, since I am not a fan of Greek culinary. I never tried Greek before, but I guess they are pretty close to Italian (I guess?). I ordered something looks like a lasagna, surprisingly it was great. The cheese tasted differently from regular cheese and they served it with fruits salad on the side. For the price, you have no worry, darling. We only spent IDR135 (it's around 11 dollars... like what??) for three different kinds of menu and beers. Cheers for that! I definitely come back on another day with Andreas, because I'm sure he'll like it here.

About the location, is not really hard to find, but you have to walk in from Kuta Beach street (Poppies Street, near the Kuta Bex). I didn't find any local tourists here, mostly are foreign travelers.

 This one that I ordered. Totally forgot what it called. 

 This one is Ko Steve's favorite. Sorry it looks messy but trust me it tasted very good. Basically it is beef meatballs with mashed potato and cheese on top. Again I'm clueless with the name of this food.

After our Greek dinner, it's time for dessert! They took me to Flapjack's, which is one of the most popular dessert place in Bali. People come to Bali, they definitely take time to sit here. I never been here before, so when they knew it was my first time, they were like, "Seriously, Che? You live here!". Yeah, this kid seriously need to go out more.

Flapjack's almost like in everywhere, Kuta, Seminyak, Sanur, etc. So you don't have to worry to find this place. We chose Tiramisu waffles with Ferrero gelato flavor on top. They also have pancake and other gelato flavors. I saw Oreo flavor that time, I will come back for that soon.

One of the best hearty food, at least for me hehe.

I just realized Ko Steve was holding knife hahaha. I guess he was pretty tired that day, taking all us three here and there, plus helping us for pictures ((:

The day ended up in The Bistrot, a vintage boutique cafe located in Seminyak. We just ordered some drinks. Cappuccino for me, iced latte for Ci Dinda and apple martini for Ko Steve, which actually was ordered by his dear wifey but ended up with him hahaha. We only spent minutes here then they drove me home.

I love spending day with them. They shared lots things especially how they planned their wedding. Ceritanya sekalian minta wejangan dari yang baru nikah gitu, deh! Fun fact, I met Ko Steve for the first time on their wedding day, but I was like meeting an old friend. He is nice and friendly, a brother figure indeed. Thank you so much you two, took me to new places, told me stories and of course treated me (my belly) so well. I hope we can meet again soon. Please take care! 

I'm quite relaxed tonight, knowing that tomorrow will be a day off. I'll have my Zumba class in the morning so I better sleep now for extra energy. Good night loves and stay awesome!

This is gonna be a longggg post without any (pre-wedding) pictures.

Kenapa pre-wedding, karena aku pengen sharing apa aja yang aku pelajarin dalam hubunganku dengan pasangan, khususnya menjelang wedding day kami. Buat yang udah nikah, pasti ngerti banget fase sebelum merit itu hebohnya kayak apa. Bukan cuman ngurusin detil dan konsep pesta itu sendiri, tapi lebih ke persiapan mental masing-masing pasangan. Okay, should I start now? Here we go.
