We’re Engaged, Now What?

Without us realising, it’s been 4 months since our engagement day. In other words, It’s been 4 months since I became someone’s fiancée! Whew, how time flies.

In Indonesia, especially within Indonesian culture, it is not that common to have a long engagement period. Usually couples got formally engaged just few months, or even weeks before the wedding day. Well my case is a bit different.

An Afternoon in Bandung

The date was December 24th – Christmas Eve. I woke up early, and rushed to catch a bus to Bandung that was scheduled to leave at 6 AM. I managed to get to the station on time and jumped into the bus. Not long after the bus departed, I fell asleep but only to woke up again not long after due to the uncomfortable seat. Repeat for about 10 times until I finally made it to Bandung.

The first weekend in 2017

The first weekend of 2017 is a good one, I can say. Here’s how my weekend goes :

Saturday

On Saturday I met my high school best-friends as they were on a playdate. Playdate here is a new term that I just got used to, which sort of shifted our regular weekend brunch sessions to a brunch with babies and toddlers involved. Being the only one single in the group, I have the privilege to call myself ‘the cool aunt’ and had a lot of fun being surrounded with their giggles.

Seputar Blogging

Halo, kembali lagi di Selasa Indonesia pertama di tahun 2017. Kali ini saya mau ngomongin seputar dunia blogging.

Saya aktif ngeblog sejak jaman SMA (ngga usah tanya tahunnya ya, hehe), dimulai dari blog asal – asalan di Pitas.com (sekarang kayaknya portalnya sudah tidak aktif), kemudian pindah ke Blogspot, dan sejak 2014 pindah ke WordPress.

Sejauh ini, nge-blog di WordPress sih yang paling serius. Saya secara berkala menerbitkan tulisan, rajin blogwalking, dan juga saling meninggalkan komen antara teman – teman blogger.

DON! DON! Pondok Indah

That one Saturday afternoon, I was doing some errands in Pondok Indah area when I found this restaurant, located almost hidden in Pondok Indah Plaza 2.

You can instantly tell that DON! DON! is a Japanese restaurant just by looking at its door. They placed a menu board outside the door so potential guests can have a peek at their menu, and that’s exactly what I did.

Goodbye 2016,Hello 2017!

To me, 2016 was full of mixed emotions. In some parts it was amazing, but in contrary it also brings me down to the point where I could not even believe. There were so many turmoils happened in my life until when I tried to look back to reflect on 2016… I somehow lost my memory.

Really, I could not recall clearly what happened each months, perhaps simply because some months were so hard to be went through. But anyway, despite what had happened, I’m still thankful as I am alive, well and breathing, surrounded by my loved ones. They say what does not kill you makes you stronger, right? 🙂

My 30th Birthday

I turned 30 last Sunday, and it was the best birthday I’ve had in several years! So, here’s the story…

For as long as I can remember, my birthday eve was always spent at my aunt’s house with my extended family (except the one year I spent in England), and this year was no different. When the clock stroke midnight, everybody wished each other Merry Christmas, and a happy birthday to me. We then sang happy birthday and I blew my candles. We ate some cake, spent some more time, until finally it was time to go home.
