I initially wanted to write this right after last weekend, so then I would title it “Last Weekend”.. but then I got caught up with work and without me realising another weekend is almost gone! Whew!
Anyway, I just want to share with you some stories of my weekend..

Now that I have started to think about getting married, last weekend I went to a wedding fair in outskirts of Jakarta to browse around and find inspirations.
The fair was huge! It took place in a big hall with over 100 of vendors. They came from different categories too, ranging from venues to hand bouquets (Yes, I found one vendor which specialises on hand bouquets only!)… basically everything that you need for a wedding.

Last Ramadan I have been spending less time online and more time trying to get a deeper understanding of my faith. As an Indonesian Muslim in today’s society, I often feel like I don’t really belong to the community. The things I saw in the popular media, the things I heard from my extended network, none of them are in line with my values and beliefs. Then it got me thinking. Have I been losing my faith? How could they be saying things that seem to be contradictive with the Islam that I was brought up in, the things that I believe in? What is wrong and what is right now?

So I’ve recently reclaimed my old hobby, that is creating playlists. Music has always been a major part of my life, especially during my teenage/early adult days.

Halo, balik lagi di Selasa Indonesia 🙂 Minggu ini saya mau cerita soal jaman kuliah. Saya kuliah S1 nya di UI, di kampusnya yg hijau dan luas di daerah Depok. Masuk UI waktu itu sebenernya karena ngga ada pilihan lain, abisnya Almarhum Ayah saya lulusan UI terus dia bilang ngga mau bayarin kuliah kalau kuliahnya nggak di UI.. Hahahaha segitunya yah. Untungnya berhasil masuk dan lulus, walau sayangnya dia udah keburu nggak ada waktu saya lulus-lulusan :’).

Guys, I have been scammed. So recently I took on a freelance job that I found online and agreed to work on a project. I finished my work but then the client just vanished after I sent the invoice. I have no idea how to trace the client because all I have is her email, skype, and her profile on a freelance portal where I met her.

This morning I met a special friend. His name is Rizki. I’m not sure how old he is, most probably no older than 10. Rizki is one of the kids from a special needs school that I met this morning in my high school. I was paired with him for a fun walk with kids from the school during our alumni sports day.
