Part 1: She Knows He Knows

He touched her finger that was still pointed at his chest, "Still manage to scare the day out of me, I see." She smiled. Too sweetly. "Are you trying to get us killed? Not a good day to die, you say?".

How To Cross Road In Margonda

Somebody should publish this kind of booklet long before I even got enrolled in University of Indonesia. Duh! 1. If there's eventually a traffic light for passerby, please DO pay attention. It's not there for decoration purpose (only).

Dream High

Once upon a time, in one particular high school, lived one particular girl student. Let's call her Suzy. Not only that she got the looks, she also had the wealth and singing talent and lots of antis. All things other girls could only imagine.

Story From Far Java

On my last visit to Jogja (seriously this city has something captivating), I happened to visit Kraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat and Kraton Surakarta in one-day-trip to Solo.

Letting Go

The big question of letting go bugged my mind around these last couple of months. Some things.. are they worth to keep, or should I let them go. Think I'm pretty good of letting things go, but when inputs and comments started to coming in, I'd have to reconsider my decision.

Just a quick update

It's only days before I turned 30. The sacred number, or like one of my friends like to put it, the wizardry age..

"There's a legend in the internet if you stay virgin on 30, you're becoming a wizard."
Huh O_o
Anyway, apparently since the last time I checked in to this blog, I've been to several places, traveled to see new people and experienced new culture.

Let's see.. some of my notable journeys
  • Hong Kong and Thailand in November 2013
    An enjoyable trip, mostly doing girly things, we shop, we eat, we laugh, we got lost.. HAHAHAHAHA.. Hong Kong is a nice place, we met with a couple of old people, took pictures of them, listened to their stories, exchanged kisses on the cheek multiple times (why??), tried every single means of transportation, love it. Macau is as amazing as Hong Kong, cooler and fancier of course. I didn't dare to step into the casinos for the fear of getting rejected at the front door due to my youthful and innocent face (yuck!)
  • Bali in January 2014
    Somebody is getting anxious for being 30. So off we go to the island of gods. I always like Bali, dunno why but I always enjoyed its different ambiance. I cannot swim but I still love its culture, its beach, the story of gods..I'm supposed to meet some people while I was there but alas, next time maybe..
  • Tokyo in April 2014
    My first solo trip overseas. Yay. I arranged SO MANY meetings with strangers (mostly from couchsurfer, don't get your panties twisted) I barely have time to be sorrow and lonely. I love this city a lot. It's so damn clean, the people are so helpful, the culture is splendid and its landmarks were amazing. I met with interesting people, I went to karaoke with them, hunt for fresh sushi with an Israeli girl, even meet with one of my high school friend unprecedented. Amazing things happened when you traveled alone, I guess.
  • Belitong in May 2014
    To balance things out, let's visit our own land. Belitong, the super rich land for anyone could simply grab some sands and found the dark of tin. I love the beach and its stones, although the underwater is not as amazing as ones in Sulawesi, I still love the place. The tour guide is excellent, yes.. me, the cheapo traveler decided to use tour guide.. because this is princess-trip. Hahahahaha.

I think that's it.. I have no other trip planned for the rest of the year.. oh wait.. maybe Jogja (yay, multiple trips) but that's basically it. *sad faces*

On the bright side, I'm gonna go to Japan again next year, HURRAY! This time I successfully make my three other friends join me, muahahaha, sumimasen minna-san... i'm gonna be bothering you again in no time.

What else? Ah, love life... okay... bitter topic.. when am I gonna go to Europe? Italy! Hahahaha. Please my dear boss let me take unpaid leave of two months.

These last few months were the months of dispirited, lack-of-enthusiasm and the most unproductive thinking in my life. I'm super galau because basically I don't care anymore with my job, I spent so many times trying to make things stay afloat yet it all slowly crumbles. I'm getting bad review, bad feedback, yet false compliment from some other people. Weird.

I even nearly got a panic attack since I have no idea what to do with my life. Never before in my life I have such a lousy mindset. Never. I talked with some strangers, and basically all I did is to make short-term goals. Making goals helped me to clear my mind and to focus. That's actually fun.

Here are my short term goals:
  • learn to swim
  • apply for scholarship, this time I'm gonna choose something that I actually have a passion in
  • learn to drive a car
  • enroll in a gym
  • go to Italy
  • get certification
  • start my online business
Yep.. that's pretty simple.. but that helped me go through the days. Wish me luck, dear people!
