Series of thoughts

I dont even know what 4th of July is supposed to mean. Independence Day, sure. But the more I read, the more I begin to question.

I don’t understand Indonesians’obsession with uniform. “Oh, here’s a matching kitchen towel for you, it will look nice”. “Let’s all buy this pink kaftan to our cousin’s wedding”. Why does it have to be the exact same pink kaftan? Why can’t I wear my own pink kaftan that I brought from Indonesia, one that I’ve prepared for special occasions like these? I can understand dress code and color code.. but uniform?

I miss my family and friends so, so bad. Of all the things that are happening in Indonesia, nothing I want more than being able to see them in person. So until then, I can only pray for their health and safety. Until then.

I feel like I’m at this weird position where I feel really blessed to be able to write this post while enjoying my brunch at a coffee shop, but at the same time I am holding down my tears because as soon as I start to think “aaah this is nice” while sipping my coffee, I thought of my mom and brother who hasnt been really out from their home for 1,5 years now. That was a weird sentence, but I guess it represents my thoughts lately. Cluttered.

I feel bloated lately but most days I dont have the energy to exercise or even go out. I just want to leyeh-leyeh all day.

I am obsessed with Jang Kiyong and Hyeri in My Roommate is a Gumiho. The series is so unrealistic (it’s a fantasy romcom anyway), but it makes me smile, it’s light and filled with fluff, exactly what I need this time.

Thank you for reading my thoughts. I’ve finished my coffee and I’m going home. We’re making Bakso for lunch, my inlaws are coming over. Stay safe and healthy, friends!

  1. Hang on in there, Christ. I feel you, it feels so good here to finally be able to go places without worry, and it’s summer! But at the same time, too much bad news in Indonesia, I couldn’t shake it off. Hang on in there, people. >> This is me talking to myself.

    1. Diiit, senasib ya kita kayaknya. Di satu sisi seneng udah bisa ngopi2 tapi tiap ngopi pengen nangis jugaa bayangin Indonesia :(((( hugsss, semoga kita dan keluarga semua sehat yaaahh…

  2. Indeed Chris, the same here. It feels nice that things start to open up here, but the news from Indonesia doesn’t help as it’s pretty much in the other direction for now. Let’s hope things get under control soon there.
