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.
Post Selasa Indonesia kali ini sebenernya sudah lama nangkring di draft saya tapi nggak selesai – selesai karena satu dan berbagai hal. 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.
We were chilling at home when I received an email from an event tickets marketplace. The email basically saying that HAIM concert would be tonight and prompt me to check out ticket prices. It turned out that we were lucky (wait, let me rephrase – I was lucky because R doesn’t really listen to them), we managed to score 2 tickets for 50% off!
The concert was held in a small theatre about 45 minutes away from where we live, in Pomona. With a few clicks, we purchased the tickets, got ready, and left.
Baru – baru ini saya baca beberapa artikel soal nikah dari media di Indonesia. Artikel pertama dari website feminis dimana si reporter menggabungkan dirinya ke dalam grup yang diprakarsai oleh gerakan Indonesia Tanpa Pacaran. Masih berhubungan dengan artikel pertama, saya kemudian baca artikel soal selebgram beridentitas Muslim yang ramai mengadvokasi soal nikah muda dan nggak pakai pacaran. Terakhir, saya ngikuti sekilas soal “keramaian” di Instagram yang terkait dua selebgram ibukota soal nikah dan punya anak.
The trip actually happened during last Christmas break but I haven’t had the chance to write about it until now.. so.. yeah :)))
Although we just got back from Indonesia, R suddenly realised that his office would be closed from Christmas until New Year so we decided to have a mini-vacation. We initially wanted to go to New York but obviously, it was not a good idea because we didn’t plan it in advance so flight ticket prices were skyrocketing!
We then decided to go on a road trip to nearby state and this time we chose to go to Utah. We had 4 days and the trip was super unplanned and I feel like we could’ve planned it better, but anyway it was a fun trip and memorable because it was our first one.
