New Year’s Holiday

Day 1 & 2: Arrived in Jakarta

Bought Beard Papa’s. My favorite is eclair puff with vanilla filling 😋

Obviously it becomes one of my comfort foods!

Trees and tall buildings…

Day 3: Arrived at Home

Colorful plants by my mom. I hope I could grow some lettuce or kale by myself this year haha

Chizprek.co , please open in Bandung! 😋

Soto Seger Boyolali for breakfast, near home.

Quality time with lil bro. Sorry for the blurry picture :p

My mom, lil bro, and I made baked mac n cheese.

The Sims 4: Yeay!!!

Being introvert is easy. LOL.

Day 4: New Year’s Day

Family dining out. Alhamdulillah all of us could gather on that day. Also alhamdulillah for Sate Maranggi H. Yetti Cibungur being open on new year’s day. FYI, they are only closed in Idul Fitri day and open since 8 a.m. (info from their whatsapp business, you can get the number from their instagram here : https://www.instagram.com/satemaranggihajiyettycibungur  )

Besides the satay, I would like to recommend their fritters (a.k.a gorengan). I think you should order each of the fritters because they are so tasty especially with their chili sauce!

The fritters and sauce deserve a picture 😋

This short holiday is full of tasty meals. Alhamdulillah 

Taylor Swift Reputation Tour

Another highlight from this holiday is Taylor Swift’s Reputation Tour in Netflix !!

The Double Decker Bus

How we went to Madiun: double-decker bus!

It’s indeed an interesting experience! The bus was comfy. I could sleep well haha. The cost for one person is Rp325.000 if I’m not mistaken. And the most important thing was I could charge my phone in bus haha #noworryforbattery

I traveled from Bekasi around 3 p.m. and arrived in Magetan (my grandpa’s village) at 6 a.m. the day after.

The height compared to the Mixer car…

See you on the next post! 😆

Foods & The City: Mom’s Bakery & Madam Potato

“White tall building in Bandung and the greeneries~” 

Mom’s Bakery

If you go to Bandung and looking for food that’s guilt-free, very tasty, and healthy you should try Mom’s Bakery (https://www.instagram.com/momsbakeryindonesia). Besides the delicious cake, pastry, bread, they also serve salads, omelet, sandwiches, smoothie bowls.

My favorite is the sandwich. The concept here is we can choose what bread, fillings, and sauces we want. In the sandwich picture above, I choose croissant for the bread, smoked beef for the protein, and homemade barbeque sauce. For a smoked beef sandwich, it costs me Rp45.000. They also have vegetarian options for the sandwich (falafel sandwich, tempeh/tofu sandwich)  

Recommendation time to visit: In the morning around 8-9 AM. Why? Because at this time you can smell the bread being baked…. and it’s soooooo goooood! Isn’t it delightful having a nice breakfast accompanied with the smell of bread being baked? 🙂

Madam Potato

I bought this potato snack because I like french fries and it has cheese sauce (and seaweed sauce). It cost me Rp30.000 for a portion. A unique thing about this potato snack is it’s very long, probably 25-30 cm each. The portion is quite large, probably for 2 or 3 people. Crispy outside, soft inside. Taste good and worth the price. 

I think that’s all for now, see you in the next post!

Take Care of Our Mental Health

So yesterday was World Mental Health Day. That explained the many posts about this topic these days. Here are my favorites

From kak Affi (Female Daily)

Thank you ka Affi for the words. I’m doing that, the “taking temporary break”, more like shifting my center of life actually. I need some breaks for the shifting and still progressing..

And this quote

Be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the best you can

Walk to Work

My 2nd time walking to work. Today with mba Ika and Nanda. I took a walk not because the public transportation (angkot) is not operating (because my dad thought so), but for exercising 💪💪

A great thing of working in Bandung, I can walk to work in cool weather and see the greeneries 🌳

Not bad haha

Hopefully we keep consistent doing this walk to work~

Hello!

Hello again hahaha it’s been so long. Sorry I have been busy with the wedding preparation (and tried as much to keep the wedding news secret until near the day) Phew~ I have been wanting to write (the draft) so much about the wedding preparation since long. However, that may have to wait because I have not made any draft hahahahaha.

If you know me and have questions about wedding preparation, feel free to ask me through Whatsapp (since some of my friends already did) :p

Today I want to write about today or maybe the last 24 hours or maybe about career. LOL.

I feel great today despite only getting 2 hours of sleep zzzz. Why? Because yesterday night, until 4 a.m. today I did a UX task which I have not done for some months (calm, let’s not cry, there’s a story behind this). If you know me well or know how my sleep habit was in boarding school, you know how I cannot stay awake all night. Last night I made it! I didn’t sleep until 4 a.m. working on the presentation, no music, no tv. The task I did yesterday, it’s like a wake-up call of what should I do as my profession :p

I feel like that kind of work is the kind that I want to put my heart into it… well, I did try to love what I do… and that’s a different feeling.. with the last night task, it feels easier to put my heart into my work (whatever the result is)

Perhaps doing things-that-I-want-to-put-my-heart-into give me more energy instead of making me tired. 

Well, I still need to sleep tho.. but, I feel in a great mood today because of the work. I hope I can experience more of this kind of feeling in the future days~ 

Praise be to Allah 🙂
