Sejak pertama kali memiliki handphone iPhone 5 beberapa tahun yang lalu, saya mendeklarasikan diri sebagai pengguna iOS sejati. iPhone 5 saya sukses bertahan selama 2 tahun hingga akhirnya harus rela dicopet orang ☹ . Setelah itu, saya menggunakan iPhone 6 yang masih awet saya gunakan hingga saat ini.
Walaupun banyak handphone dengan sistem operasi Android yang kelihatan menggoda, tapi hingga saat ini saya masih belum mau pindah haluan dan masih pengguna iOS setia. Apalagi ketika baru – baru ini iPhone 7 sudah diluncurkan di Indonesia. Aduh, rasanya tergoda sekali untuk “naik kelas” dan mengganti iPhone 6 saya dengan iPhone 7!

Hello and welcome back to my Surprising Shanghai series. Before we start, have you read part 1 and part 2 of this series? Do have a read if you haven’t! 😉
So, at the end of part 2, I ended my third day in Shanghai by walking around East Nanjing Road. I was so tired from going out all day so I decided not to wake up too early the next day, which was happen to be my last full day in Shanghai.

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. Back then, I like to create playlists in the form of cassette mixtape for various occasions. I was fortunate to have a stereo system that comes with dual cassette deck, making it easy to record songs! I would religiously listen to radios almost every day and patiently waited for my favorite song to be played… and felt so annoyed when the announcer started to speak in the middle of a song, hahaha. #90sfirstworldproblem

This is another overdue post of my trip to Shanghai. You may read the first part here.
My third day in Shanghai started with a nice stroll around my hostel. I woke up early in the morning and decided to quickly get ready and leave the hostel because I felt excited to wander around. It was around 7 in the morning and although there was not much to see in the area that I was staying in, I managed to grab some delicious breakfast on the go!

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 :’).

Last week I went to Bali with my family. By family, I mean not only my mum and brother, but also my cousins and aunt. In total, there were 3 families that went. My family, my cousin and his wife, my aunt, another cousin with his wife, and little daughter. We used to go on a family holiday at least once a year when our dads were still alive, back when we were kids. But as we grow up, we rarely go on a holiday together due to various reasons. So, this holiday was the first in many many years. We were so excited!
