Morning Question

What should I do today to make myself happy?

Good foods.

Quite & calm commute so I can listen to a podcast.

I can read novel. Must finish my work first tho.

What else..?

[Update]

I made this post to remind me to create happiness for myself. Because I think, i’m not supposed to expect others to make me happy. ☺

Weekend: Birthday, Crazy Rich Asians, Great Foods

We had a dinner at Tamani Cafe to celebrate my mother’s birthday.

No, it’s not my birthday.

The crown supposedly for mom. I voluntered to wear it because this remind me to an entertaining novel I read: Crazy Rich Asians. See pic below. Handsome, right? #eh Haha!

Btw, the full trailer comes tomorrow. Can’t wait for the movie!

Other highlight for this weekend is my favorite snacks finally available in go-food! It’s siomay and lumpia from Bubur Ayam Jakarta, Kemang Pratama Bekasi.

Another highlight is I tried baby shampoo and baby bath soap because my skin is very dry these days. For my skin, I haven’t feel significant improvement (still gonna use it to see more improvement). For the hair, I can see a result. The baby shampoo does make my hair shinier though not as soft as conditioner does to mine. Btw, I wonder if it’s ok to use conditioner after baby shampoo? Because from what i know, conditioner can remove shampoo residue.

Personally, I believe that this baby soap and shampoo are good for my skin because it has less soap than adult soap. Because I already prove that with my face wash. My skin feels better when I used soapless facial wash (mine is from sensatia botanica, the unscented one). The face wash does not dry out my skin!

The Hometown

Used to love & hate the city. Love it because my home is here and the foods. Hate the heat, traffic jam, & flood 😂. Now that the city’s facility getting better (trotoars, benches, and little parks along the road) it’s more liveable & enjoyable (for holiday :p )

Cheers! :p

Today I Made

 

Finally a new post!

Hi All, it’s been a long time. Phew~

I tried to blog from WordPress mobile app, sadly, the images were often failed to upload (i don’t know why)

Anyway, I do have some stories to share and finally some motivations to live up this blog again (yeay!)

Truth is the last 2 months were not the easiest time. Life has its ups & downs, after all. I was sad, cried (had meltdown) easily, a bit lost. However, I’m currently progressing toward the better me. I decide to just do what makes me happy: live by my own rules :)) LOL

 

Maybe I should write down my rules until I have rules like Gibbs’ (NCIS) :p

Highlights of January (Part #1)

Haha last week, I wanted to create weekly highlight post and ended up not making one. Hence, this post title is to cover up the last week and this week this month highlight. Haha.

Why do I write this kind of post? I don’t know, I just think it will be fun. At least for me. So, later when I feel bored, I could look up to these posts and get inspired to do things that make me happy.

Well, as a start, I may not write much. So, basically, this post will only contain pics and a little bit description.

1. Singkong Thailand (A Savory – Sweet Dessert)

I really like this dessert because of the savory yet sweet taste has a good combination. The savory taste comes from the coconut milk vla (the white layer) and the sweet taste comes from the cassava. A simple dessert, yet very tasty

It costs only Rp7.000 and is available in a traditional market near my house in Bekasi. I prefer to eat this when the dessert is chilled. I also bring 2 cups of this when I returned to Bandung, just because I really like it 😆

2. Help Ibu with Go-Food registration

Last week I helped Ibu to take photos of the food which Ibu want to sell in Go-Food.

Nasi Kucing

Nasi Pecel

We sell nasi bakar, nasi pecel, nasi kucing, nasi gudeg, ayam bakar. You can contact me if you want to buy these foods! Haha #imserious

3. Lemon & Honey

The weather was uncertain these days. Hence, I need to improve my body with vitamins. A supplement that I like is lemon & honey in warm water. I feel better and fresh after I drink this. My skin is also less dry. 🍋🍯

Honey Lemon Drink

4. A good novel: Resign! By Almira Bastari

I like this novel since I read this in Wattpad. It’s light, fresh, entertaining & lovely. Also maybe I read this book because I feel related (to the corporate life part, not to the romance part obviously) :))

Riddle

Disclaimer: this post might be a cheesy one, it will be more about ka Emil & me haha.

On the last Saturday of 2017, Ka Emil and I went to Marugame. After finished our meal, I opened my senior high school group and found that my friend gave a riddle. Since I was waiting for ka Emil to be ready to our next destination, I worked on that riddle. I worked with paper (Marugame receipt to be precise) and pen which I borrowed from ka Emil. I counted it manually, just because~ After I finished the riddle I gave my answer to the group. Then, ka Emil asked me what did I do? I showed him my draft, my manual problem-solving. Turned out, he was interested in the riddle and asked me to show him the riddle.

After packed our belongings, we walked from Marugame to Merdeka street (Yes, walked, by foot) We kept silent for a while and suddenly ka Emil said about the riddle, to confirm on how the system in that riddle work, what my answer is, and how to solve it. “Oh, my… I know you’re so silent because you’re thinking about it!!” Hahaha, I did not know that he would be interested in the riddle. “Yes. However, I try to solve it inside my mind.. by creating a mathematical formula of it ” he replied and told me some mathematical solutions he thought of, I didn’t remember exactly. I just laughed. He’s so funny!

Then we went to the brownies place, I told him to wait somewhere while I was buying the brownies (for myself, in case you want to know :p ). When finished, I met him at the restaurant part of the place. Turned out he’s still working on the riddle in his mind haha. Suddenly I had this feeling that I made a wrong calculation on my answer, then I checked my draft (the receipt) and yes I made a wrong calculation. I revised my solution and showed it to ka Emil. I made it neat enough that he could recognize the pattern. I knew there’s a pattern too. However, made it to some mathematical formula was too much work for me at the time hahaha. He recognized the pattern from my draft and voila! He made the mathematical formula easily (like less than 5 mins maybe). Then we exchange our answer and the answer from my draft/receipt and his formula was same, yeay haha. He’s so happy finding out the formula that he even open my group to answer the riddle and happily provide the mathematical formula explanation to the group!!! Hahaha

 

Here are some proofs of evidence.
This is the problem. Thanks, Hime!

 

My manual solution.. (on the back of receipt)

 

His solution…

 

He happily explained his solution in my group and astonished my friends 😂 #imsosmart #noguys #itshim

 

Here is the funny guy, so happy finding out the formula 😆

The smart guy, he’s so happy! #imhappyforyoutoo #LOL

Life as INTJ: Read, Archive

There are some days when I don’t feel like talking or interact with anyone except family and ka Emil. Then I think how to make myself feel better. It turns out that archiving chats can do that. I feel less overwhelming. No, I never have hundred or thousand chat notification haha. However, as an introvert, sometimes looking at too many chats (even the read ones) overwhelms me. Having too many chats on a chat list is like being in a crowded room even though I’m talking to no one.

Based on this psychology junkie article (https://www.psychologyjunkie.com/2016/08/09/12-stress-busting-techniques-intjs/) “Too much noise or sensory input” is one of the things that cause stress to INTJ. I consider the crowded room metaphor too much noise. LOL.

I know this sounds weird. Nonetheless, it works for me haha.

This is what’s left on my WhatsApp after I archived other messages. I did this to my Line, too, which most of its chats are from official/promo account LOL.
