Hari Minggu yang lalu saya pergi ke sebuah festival di Jakarta, namanya We The Fest. Ini bukan kali pertama saya hadir sih, tahun – tahun sebelumnya saya juga hadir, maklum festival semacam ini menarik sekali buat saya karena bisa nonton banyak musisi dalam satu acara.
You might have read this post about my recent experience when dealing with Make Up Artist for my engagement party. Long story short, I was disappointed with one when I wanted to book her. I ended up having had to find another one that suits my budget (note: it’s relatively easy to find a MUA in Jakarta if you have unlimited budget but that’s not the case for me…).
This weekend I did something that I haven’t done in a long time. I spent my weekend like a true Jakartan!
Jakartans – Did you managed to go to The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Jakarta 2016?
Well I did, twice! 😀
The first time was on Sunday the 1st of May, we arrived at approximately 9 PM and left the building just as they were closing at 11PM. 2 hours did not seem like a long time, the book fair was hugeee! Oh btw for those who are not familiar with the event, Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is a book fair held in a convention centre where you can find tons of books with discounted prices. When I say discounted I mean VERY MUCH. Books (mostly English, imported) were sold for as low as IDR 30,000 (~US$ 2). They have a lot of genres as well, ranging from novels – self help – business – health – kids books – cook books, etc.
If you know me IRL, you’d know that I change my hair style quote often. By hair style though, I mean length. Sometimes I grow my hair long, and when I think it reached a certain length, I decided to cut it short. Long-short-long-short. But that’s about it. I never color my hair, and I can’t live without a hair straightener.
It started as an ordinary Friday night. I left the office not long after 6PM, with a plan to meet my long-lost friend from college, A.
On becoming a guest lecturer
Earlier this week I had a chance to become a guest lecturer in a private university in Jakarta. It was not my first time though, but my second time. The first time was last year, where I was given the opportunity to give a lecture about my previous work for a undergraduate Marketing class. It was pretty basic – at that time I was still working for a company which brand is in the top 5 of world’s most valuable brands.. so all I did was shared some successful marketing campaigns which I was involved in, and had a Q&A session.
