Hari Minggu yang lalu saya dan R pergi ke La Pride Parade di daerah West Hollywood. Disini, West Hollywood memang terkenal sebagai kota yang permisif terhadap gaya hidup LGBTQI. Biasanya, daerah ini selalu ramai kalau akhir pekan, karena banyak bar yang sering didatangi orang – orang dengan gaya hidup tersebut. Pride Parade nya sendiri berlangsung di hari Minggu siang bolong, dari jam 11 hingga 2 siang.
Oh iya, sebelum lanjut, kalau kamu merasa tidak nyaman dengan topik ini, silakan skip aja bacanya ya dan sampai jumpa di Selasa Indonesia berikutnya 🙂

Wow, where did the time go? Without I even realized it, it’s already the last week of Ramadan. This Ramadan marks my first Ramadan after I got married and moved to the US. It means it’s also our first Ramadan together, R and I 🙂 I was inspired by Deny’s blog post about her Ramadan experience in The Netherlands so I decided to share my story too.

Before I moved here, R told me that there’s a library nearby the house. Although he never been (He’s not much of a reader…), he said that the library seemed to be popular.

R finished work early yesterday and we had to go to a relative’s house in the afternoon. The house is located in Huntington Beach, approximately 15 minutes away from where we live. Though I’ve been to Huntington Beach many times, I actually have never been to the part where the house is located, near Huntington Harbour. It’s a nice area, full of nice houses and the sight of yachts.

Sampai suatu hari Aggy ninggalin komen di post saya yang ini dan nanya apa awalnya susah nggak hidup di kota kecil, karena dia tau kalau saya anak kota banget alias big city girl, hehehe. Jadi, tanpa panjang lebar, saya ceritain yah 🙂 Continue reading “Pasca Jakarta”
Being away from the family sucks especially during festive times like the upcoming Ramadan. All my life except for the year I spent studying abroad I lived near my family and I have a big family from both sides of my parents.

My bridesmaid is visiting from Indonesia and I got to have a mini-holiday by staying in West LA for 5 days with her. It was fun! In case you are wondering, I’m not actually based in Los Angeles. Instead, I’m about 45 minutes away, in the suburbs area 🙂 Being the city girl that I am, I always love going to LA because I got to see many kinds of people, a contrast from my simple suburban life.
