Inspiration From Traveling

As Peter Hoeg said, “Traveling tends to magnify all human emotions.” And it’s totally true, especially when you are traveling alone. Traveling alone has given me many lessons and made me a different person inside.

“A home is when you leave it, there’s that feeling that you can’t shake. You just miss it.” [Neal Cassidy – Once Upon A Time]. (Haha yeah I’ve been watching quite a lot of this series. :p) Ohhhhh.. How I miss traveling a lot, how I miss exploring again. I miss the excitement, being who I truly am, free.

It’s memories that is always there, that’s always you have when the moments are not there anymore to feel. But memories help you remember the feeling once you had. And now I’m gonna share 23 things I felt while I travelled… in which I think, if you felt some of these things, I’d say, welcome to my world! 😀

  1. Expensive food in restaurant is not always tasty (gratis food is tastier)
  2. You don’t think you could wear the same jeans for the whole week without washing them
  3. You think many times before buying food in restaurant when you see the price but end up buying one for yourself and you feel poor after that
  4. You cannot explain the happy feeling when you find a tap drinking water
  5. You don’t care about your hairstyle, if you do, you just comb your hair with your fingers or tied your hair without combing them
  6. You bought a lot of things in supermarket when its tagged “discount” even if its not useful.
  7. You take your breakfast/lunch/dinner late sometime to save the food in your stomach to have 1 meal time for 2
  8. It’s ok to stop & sit & daydream sometime
  9. You like walking so much as its giving you time to enjoy the place while your brain are wandering around
  10. You don’t know how, when or where, you get the miracle of becoming a wiser person
  11. It always feels good to find “free wifi”
  12. You don’t want anything anymore except eating ice cream in a hot sunny day (a) or chocolate would be fine too.
  13. You feel stupid when you realize you bring so much things in your bag you don’t use/need.
  14. You feel so cool to be in the local public transport
  15. You learn how to say thank you in local language and wish you know how to speak more
  16. You cannot remember the name of the days or date anymore
  17. A comfy bed or hot water shower are the most luxurious things you’ve ever wanted
  18. You find a place that might interest you, you don’t really know where it is, but you keep going there anyway. (because it looks easy on the map)
    18(a). but it was not and you end up getting lost, so you go to another place that takes you, and you don’t feel any regret in the end.
    18(b). or regret, so you decided to go back, and start all over the journey to reach the first place you want to visit.until you finally find it, when you realized it was so damn easy to reach.
  19. You want to buy something you really need in the store, but it was too expensive and decided not to buy it, then after you feel big regret and wish to turn back the time.
  20. Even though the children can’t speak your language, you understand each other and its always good to speak with them.
    20(a). Smile and laugh from children are enough to coolen your heart and turn your bad mood into good.
  21. Having good pair of shoes = awesome journey!
  22. You don’t mind spending more time in a public transportation just to save some bucks
  23. You miss talking with your own language.

So there they are. Do you feel the same or have any things in common? I’d really love to hear your travel experience too! Sharing is caring, isn’t it? 😀

Lombok – Quiet. Magical.

It takes around 30 minutes from Bali to Lombok by plane. When we just arrived at Lombok International Airport, we seemed to get a greeting from greyish clouds, and soon after that, the little rain showed its greeting to us as well, but thank God we were already inside the car. We were picked up by the guy, our homestay sent for us. He told us about Lombok on the way to our homestay.

20160105_181501

I just knew that Lombok got a title as a city of 1000 mosques as well as 1000 thieves! Why?

Okay, I am going to explain a little bit about it. 1000 mosques because the majority of the people in Lombok is Muslim. Lombok is also nominated for one of “Halal Tourism” destination in the world. No wonder if Lombok got that title. So for you, don’t worry about finding halal food here 🙂

Now, why 1000 thieves? No, don’t worry, it’s not the thieves like what you have in your mind ! It’s in their culture/tradition before marriage! The groom-will-be has to kidnap the bride-will-be. So, girls be careful if you are being kidnapped! 😉 as somebody wants to marry you.

So apart from the Mosque and the “Thieves” XD I would like to point out things that make Lombok unique.

  • House

The traditional / Sasak’s tribe houses are really unique. The roof is made from hays, the wall is from bamboo, and the floor, mix between clay, dirt, and buffalo’s feces. Surprising? ^^ yep, but it is to make the floor strong and to shuu the mosquitoes away.

  • Food

Lombok people love spicy foooood! So if you are spicy food lovers, you will love it here! You can google for more information about Lombok food, but there are four foods that I would recommend.

  1. Plecing Kangkung. Lombok is famous for its Kangkung, I am not sure the English word for Kangkung, but it’s Spinach’s friend.
  2. Second is, spicy chicken. Ayam Taliwang. For me one portion of this chicken is big. I thought they would prepare one part of the chicken, but I got one body haha 😀
  3. Third is Tahu (Tofu)! Oh I love this one most. The texture, the taste. It’s just so yummy.
  4. Forth is, Sate (Satay). I haven’t tried Lombok Satay, but I tried Balinese Satay. Sate Lilit, and it’s yummy. You should try both Bali and Lombok’s Satay.

  • Tenun (Weaving)

In Lombok, each house owns one weaving machine. The result of the weaving we call it as “Tenun”. What’s unique in it? Well Lombok’s Tenun is famous and really special, and here, the women who can not weave are not yet allowed to get married.

If you want to get married, 😛 you can learn how to weave in Desa (village) Sukarara. Seeing the women weaving, it seemed easy at first, but looks can be deceiving sometimes. After 2-3 times of trying, I finally made a good sound of weaving, and our guide said, “Now you are ready to be kidnapped” XD

Beside learning weaving, you can buy some of Kain Tenun (Tenun’s cloth) as a souvenir from Lombok. 🙂 Many choices are available, starting from cloth, shirt, sarong, scarf etc.

Below is the example of Kain Tenun and how to weave, and don’t mind about the models XD

 

  • Beaches

Magical. One word I’d choose to describe Lombok’s beaches, especially Mawun beach. Clear blue water surrounding by greenish hill with white soft sand and clear blue skies, making Mawun Beach looks so magical.

20160106_141008

Apart from Mawun beach, we visited other three beaches. They are : Selong Blanak, Kuta Beach and Tanjung Aan.

20160106_160609

There’s a swing in Tanjung Aan,but I realized it too late 😦 Anyway, if you have the chance to visit Tanjung Aan, do find the swing! Tanjung Aan is also a nice place to see the sunset, as there is this little hill to climb, and from here, you can sit to see the beach from above.

Beaches in Lombok are quite different from beaches in Bali which are free. In Lombok, you need to pay the entrance fee for some beaches. The entrance fee is IDR 10,000/group.

 

  • Buffaloes

Last but not least, is buffalo in Lombok! Why unique? Because you can see buffaloes on the street! So if you are driving, please be careful of buffaloes passing by.

20160107_105448

So those are things that make Lombok different. Lombok is another paradise if you like village and quietness. 🙂 As it’s very quiet place, I find it difficult for the transportation. So little tips is, find a nearest place to stay, and rent a bike. Otherwise, it takes long journey and you might not want to tire yourself.

Beside renting a bike, other option to commute is using a car. You can use travel services which rent a car including the driver and somehow the driver is a guide too. (But this is expensive, that is why it is better to travel to Lombok in group)

So planning to travel to Lombok? I hope this article gives a slight information to prepare your Lombok travel better 😉 Any more things to add? Please feel free to do so! 🙂

If you are already in Lombok, you might not want to miss out Gili! 

And I will write about it next!

Bali – Fall in Love All Over Again

My goodness, it has been a year, eh, since the last time I wrote here. Happy New Year, 2016! haha. I know 2016 has been going for 26 days now, but the new year’s atmosphere is still here, right? *please say yes, please say yes!* hehe. So anyways, how has NYE been treating you? Did you celebrate it good? You can always share with me your NYE or your traveling stories. I am all ear for you! :’)

I am going to share with you the place where I spent my first two weeks of 2016. Some of you may know this place already, as I already put it as my title XD okay yes, it’s Bali!

I never think I could love Bali as much as I do now. The last time I visited Bali, it was not as special. So tourist. But when I came back again last January 2016, I could not help myself from falling in love with Bali! *sounds exaggerating, I know, I am a drama girl ho ho ho ho* XD

It takes around 1h20 to reach Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali, from Soekarno-Hatta Airport, Jakarta. And for your information, Bali’s time is 1h ahead from Jakarta’s.

Okay so, I arrived at Bali in the afternoon, and went straight ahead to my friend’s place. I guess this is the first reason that made my Bali experience becomes wonderful. I mean, if you can share the experience of traveling with someone, rather-than-alone, it is mmm heart warming. *Depends-on-your-travelmate-tho* So, *coughs* choose your travel partner wisely 😉 to enjoy your travel-ride fully! Ho ho ho. *It’s still winter in some part of the world so Santa is still wandering around!* XD

Okay enough XD. Seriously, I need to thank someone from giving me this link. Because of him, I could go to most amazing places in Bali! That link is like my guide book, so if you plan or if you are in Bali, you really should check that link out! 😉

Oh well here it is, my first sunset in Bali :’) lovely, is not it?

20160101_183751

Kuta Beach

Seeing wonderful sunset and sunrise is my favorite of all. I can just sit all day long to watch the sunset, but not the rise as it’s really shiny xD

So.. during my stay in Bali, we (my friend and I) managed to go to these places :

  • Bukit Asah Bug-bug

20160102_135240

Seriously, it’s super wonderful to see the sea beneath you from Bukit Asah Bug-bug. All I can say is just wowww all the time. We sit under the trees, and listen to some music. Mmmm super relaxing. What more could we ask!? –Oh yeah we ask more food and drink haha!– If you plan to picnic here, bring your sheet (to sit) along, and happy sea-gazing! :3

Location : Karangasem, Bali
  • Chocolate Factory

IMG-20160107-WA0063

Oh well, I put swing picture, as apart from my love for swinging around, but you actually can find this swing here! Yes here, and yes you can see the ocean too!

Well, the chocolate is not really a thing I recommend. Hearing chocolate factory at first, I thought I could eat everything all about chocolate and find or even buy some chocolate for myself, my family, and my friends. But, ermm I would not call it as a “factory”, as the place is ermm relatively “tiny” for a factory, but the house is really cute tho :3 and if you fancy swing and seeing the ocean in front of you, this is one of the place for you!

Entrance Fee : IDR 10,000 (and you will get a soap)
Location : Karangasem, Bali
  • Water Blow

20160103_145940

In Nusa Dua beach already? Just walk a bit and you’ll find this cool place! I enjoy seeing the blue ocean here, and watching the waves hit the rock and turn high. And the rock is another story! They have really cool shape. Another way to enjoy what Bali, especially Nusa Dua offers for us. The only “too-bad” thing is, we really can’t do anything except watching and foto-ing 😀 but you can always come back to Nusa Dua beach! Worth visiting while you’re in Nusa Dua 😉

Location : Nusa Dua, Bali
  • Hidden (Tegal Wangi) Beach

At first, we were like “so just it?” “what’s special in it?” but more and more our feet step closer to the edge to see the ocean closer, we found a way to get down. As we get more down and down, we were like OMG! WOWW!

20160103_164632

We see a beach “hidden” here with broken white sand. When we saw some caves, we chose the furthest one, as we really wanted to enjoy the beach for ourselves, but as time passed by, there were 2,3,4,5 people coming. But hey, even with my fingers alone could still count how many people were there!

20160103_161907

Fancy a beautiful scenery with calmness and excitement? Here is the place! You can just sit, watching beautiful blue water in front of you under the cave, (well I recommend you visit here with your loved-ones :P) or you can play with the waves and let your voice shout all the time when the waves hit you! Just like what we did. 😀

Location : Jimbaran, Bali
  • Bali Zoo

20160104_133106

Aum! I just know the dutch word for calling a cat is similar like ours, which is PUS! XD

I went to this zoo, with two (kind and super sweet) Belgian guys. When we were at the tiger place, they called the tiger, “Pus, pus” xD

Oh well, it’s ZOO! what can I say about it? Mmmm maybe I better give you a link of Bali Zoo, so you can have a better and detail look 🙂

Oh right, there was a bird show! And it was great :DD, they also involved the guests to participate, so if you happen to watch a bird show here, do participate! They won’t attack you, *only take your money and screw your hair* 😛 NOH, I am kidding XD but seriously, participate participate! 😀

One more, there was also a photo session in the restaurant, but they based on the number. So take your number quickly, so you can get the photo faster.

Entrance Fee : IDR 110,000 (for local) IDR 378,000 (for foreigners)
Location : Gianyar, Bali
  • Uluwatu Temple

20160111_140022

It’s another place in Bali that made me go WOW again and again. Gosh I am really easy to be impressed. But seriously, the scenery here is just wonderful! I can watch the waves underneath for hours. When I first saw the walls which goes all the way from the top, I thought it looks like Chinese’s great wall, (even though I’ve never been to China lol). They said to be careful with the monkey, but, there was no monkey when I was there. Anyways, it’s one of touristic places in Bali, and it’s worth to visit.

Entrance fee : IDR 20,000
  • Tanah Lot

20160110_183545

I think this is like the most popular place-you-must-visit-in-Bali. So, expect the quietness? Well you should try another place then. I am glad I have my “tour-guide” friend :D, as she knows exactly the time to go here. She said it’s super better and it’s true, to visit Tanah Lot in the afternoon. And look what I catch, mmmm very beautiful sunset :’)

There was Fire Dance show here! It cost IDR 50,000. While the entrance fee to Tanah Lot is around IDR 10,000.

  • Turtle Conservation 

Hahaha look at the baby turtle there, he is posing like a model xD, well yes, he indeed is a model, I put his picture in my blog so.. he is a model, right? XD A turtle model with a cute pose! 😛

IMG-20160111-WA0012

In here we can’t touch the turtle (penyu) in the conservation as it’s written it will make the turtle stress, we don’t want to stress the baby turtles, do we? But we got another chance to feed bunches of hungry tortoise (kura-kura) ! 😀

Entrance Fee : IDR 10,000 (for donation)
Location : Denpasar, Bali

 

So there they are, the places I visited during my holiday in Bali 🙂 I visited Lombok and Gili toooo! I will write about it in next chapter. Hope you like this one, though! 😉

Office in Memory

OMG it’s been a while since the last time I touched my blog. Things have happened a lot during these days, and now I am going to write a summary.

August 4th 2014, my first day entering a new life as a REAL EMPLOYEE! I have applied for a job since a month earlier, and I got three call for interviews. First was in Belgian Trade Office ! Hmmmm.. it was going pretty well actually, but I must say I have a tiny regret in my heart, why hadn’t I been much prepared for this interview. I got a question who was the Minister of Trade in Indonesia at that time, and I have no clue at all. 😥 I did not pay much attention to the Ministers *sobs* but the rest, I was so sure I nailed it ! but too bad they only needed one person, and you know what? That time, they have been calling the peoples for interview since two weeks continuously. Gosh! Look how competitive to get a job in here. *sweats*

Second, I got an interview in Kindergarten School ! Okay, this time I think I really did it well! The interviewer, a man.. even introduced me to his cousin ! He said he has a cousin who is studying in Germany, and in holiday time, I could meet his cousin ! hahahah.. but too bad, I knew I got a call from this school one day after my interview, but I was out.. and just realized they called me but the time was too late too call back. I planned to give a call the day after, but omg.. my phone got broken ! and I just lost his and the school’s contact.

The third, was my OFFICE FINALLY! I worked in a TV station, a local one. This TV station is really good.. I might need more space, a special space, little-separate-page, just to tell its profile ! Anyways, I am going to post my photos while I worked there, hahah..

22 November 2014 – DAAINIGHT

22 December 2014 – LAST DAY, Present from friends :’)

I was very grateful to work in here, moreover I was and am and will be gratefuuuul for the beloved friends I met here. Thank you guys so much for filling my working life with wonderful colors :’) ❤

ROME! – Part : It was not as good as I expected –

Maybe it’s true if you expect less, you will get surprise! and if you expect much, sometimes the things turn not as good as what you expected and sometimes it could make you feel dissapointed. It’s like this quote : expect for the best but prepare for the worst, because when your expectation is so high that it cannot turn into reality, you need to prepare your feeling not to be, down.

Oh well, I was so happy that Switzerland, especially Geneva; is pretty much near with the other countries. I always dream to visit Germany, and I never expected it would come true!

But I am not gonna write about Germany today, I am gonna write about a country where Buffon, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Pizza, Gelato come from .. hehe SI! it’s Italy, but unfortunately I just got the chance to visit this country’s capital city. Rome.

Image

 

I spent (supposed to be) 3 days, but I ended up staying there for 4 days. That I had to spend my precious money that has hardly been saved *cried* on unimportant things!! -I will write about the reason later-

We apologize to inform the passangers of Ea*y J*t that your flight from Geneva to Rome has been delayed..”

I was like, WHAAAT!? NOWAY! COME ON! This is my first flight! :”””( I have told my host that I would arrive at 10 pm in Rome, but now I did not know when I would arrive, I did not know how long it took for me to get on the plane. I could not do anything except sitting, waiting. .

The flight was delayed for one hour. Okay, I talked to my heart, it’s not that late. Kind of hopping I was.

____________
Finally after one hour of waiting, I could get on the plane.
It was very cool! As that was my first time on the European Airlines. They speak 4 languages on the plane : English, Italian, French, and German. Maybe for you it’s not a special thing, but for me. IT IS A BIG WOW , I feel amazed myself inside the plane hahah xD

The steward, boy-flight-attendant, offers food and ticket bus from Rome Airport (Fiumicino) to Rome Station (Termini). I bought it and it costed me about 10-11 Euro round-way.
I asked him whether I could pay with Swiss money or not, because I have not changed my money yet. He asked his mate about the currency from Swiss money (Swiss Franc) into EUR. They both speak Italian I guess.
He was so funny, after he knew, he came to me and said,
“okay, so you will pay with Swiss Franc?”
“hmm, yeah..”
“Well it cost 15 million Swiss Franc :)”

I was like hahah.. and then I gave him 20, I said “here is twenty million Swiss Franc :)” and he laughed back at me . . .
He explained to me, about the ticket, I should wait in T3, find bus no.1, he repeated it, bus no.1 and it would take you to Termini !! I said thank you. Wow it’s cool, I got the bus, so I should not be worried to go to Termini.

BUT IT TURNED OUT… T____T

Okay, so here LITTLE BIT ADVICE from me:

I was too rush. . I mean, this bus no.1 had time schedule which is 11 pm, and I had to wait again, for 1.5H from this bus after I arrived in Fiumicino Airport. You know what??? There ARE A LOT OF OTHER BUSES to go to Termini from Fiumicino. T_______T
I was like wasting my time there, huhu. Well, I don’t know about the price thou, but I think it’s kinda same.. so advice, don’t worry on how will you go to Rome from Airport, because there are a lot of buses/trains which will take you there.
——-
Come back to the story,

After 1.5h waiting, finally my bus came. I was really late :”””'( I should apologize to my host.

But when I got into the bus and saw the street of Italy, I felt so amazed again! so happy and so WOW! I wanted to shout : MAMAAAA I’M IN ITALYYYY! I wanna shout it to the universe. hehe.
Well, it took me 50m from Fiumicino to Termini.

—-
INFO :
If you are in Rome and you want to take Metro. There are only 2 lines of Metro in Rome, which is A and B. I think it’s very simple :’) you just need to know the route of Metro A and Metro B.

My host said, I need to take Metro B, destination Rebibia, and stop in Pietralata  . I was happy he did not mind picking me up there :”””(

 

Oh I will give you little bit advice again

so about the metro line A and line B,

If you want to go to TREVI FOUNTAIN, take metro line A, and stop at Barberini, and you need to take a walk to be there, just ask for the direction.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA IMG_20131007_005927

If you want to go to Colloseum, take metro line B, and stop at Colloseo, once you get out, you will see COLLOSEUM! :”)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

If you want to go to VATICAN CITY, take metro line B, and stop at Cavour, then you have to walk along the street, and you will find many shops there where you can buy souvenirs :3

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Don’t forget to visit Italian’s Piazza (Square) too ! 🙂 It’s very great to walk around while you can enjoy “Rome” city at the same time. You must visit Piazza di Spagna(Spain). Take metro line A and stop in Spagna, and you will find the others Piazza too!

Lalalala, I have not posted about my journey in here, yet ! I will post it later, in the next part.

See you in the next part then ! 🙂

The Soundtrack of My Life.

Happy new year! 🙂 Errm this is my first post in 2014. Yeah? ;p

I actually have been thinking to post my New Year Resolution right here right now, but I have something on my mind that I want to write firstly hehe. No, it’s not about my journey nor a boy neither my dreams. (I will post them later on, of course!) But yeah, as you can read on the title I put for this post, yap! I would like to write about SONGSSS!!! ❤ Not my songs xD but the songs that have captured my heart :’)

I have been listening to many songs at this moment, *well, I am on the process of writing my thesis, so only songs are my best friends now *sobs* Well yeah its true I cannot live without music!

So.. Are you ready to see what’s on my Playlist? that is so-me, I mean so-suitable-with-my-life-now.

1. 22 –  Taylor Swift!

It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters
and make fun of our exes :DDD a aw a aw.
It feels like a perfect night for breakfast at midnight
to fall in love with strangers :$ a aw a aw.
YEAAAH

We’re happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time
It’s miserable and magical, Oh yeaaah
Tonight’s the night when we forget about the deadlines! It’s time!

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22!!
Everything will be alright, if you keep me next to you.
You don’t know about me, but I bet you want to
Everything will be alright, if we just keep dancing like we’re 22..22!

yeah everything will be alright (: lalalaa..

it seems like one of those nights, we ditch the whole scene, and end up dreaaaaaming, instead of sleeeeepingg!

tonight’s the night we forget about the heartbreaks! it’s time!

Totally love this song!!! It’s gonna be my song when I turn 22. :’)

2. I know you were trouble – Taylor Swift, Again!

and he’s long gone, when he’s next to me,
and I realize the blame is on me..
I knew you were trouble when you walked in…. so shame on me now.
No apologies, he’ll never see you cry. pretend he does not know, that he’s the reason why.
You’re drowning.. you’re drowning.
..
He was long gone, when he met me, and I realize the joke is on me.
I knew you were trouble when you walked in, so shame on me now.
….
When your saddest fear, comes creeping in, that you never loved me.or her.or anyone.or anything!!

YEAAAAHHHH…

Another Taylor Swift’s song that successfully squeeze my heart as I wanna squeeze somebody’s face too right now! haha. ;P

~I KNOW YOU WERE TROUBLE WHEN YOU WALKED IN!

3. Eveything Has Changed – Taylor Swift ft Ed.Sheeran

Easy listening song! So Lovely and so Love it!! (:

“I just wanna know you better. know you better. know you better.now
All I know is you said hello, your eyes look like coming home.. all I know is simple name, everything has changed.

All I know is you held the door, you’ll be mine and I’ll be yours, all I know since yesterday is.. everything has changed.

Come back and tell me why.
I’m feeling like I’ve missed you all this time.

4. True Love – P!nk ft Lily Allen

Sometimes I hate every single stupid word you say.
Sometimes I wanna slap you in your whole face!
There’s no one quite like you, you push all my buttons down

I know. Life would suck without you.
At the same time, I wanna hug you, I wanna wrap my hands around your neck.
You’re an ASSHOLE but I love you, and you make me so mad I ask myself

Why I’m still here, or where could I go? You’re the only love I’ve ever known
But I hate you! I really hate you! so much I think it must be… true love?
Lalalala

Errrrr.. LOVE this song so much, and the lyrics!

5. Vanessa Carlton – A Thousand Miles

And I need you . . And I miss you And now I wonder….
If I could fall Into the sky
Do you think time, would pass me by
‘Cause you know I’d walk, a thousand miles
If I could  just see you … tonight

It’s always times like these, when I think of you
.. and I wonder,
If you ever  think of me??

6. Owl City – Gold

You’ll never be far, I’m keeping you near..
Inside of my heart, you’re here

Go on, it’s gotta be time you’re starting to shine

I don’t need the stars in the night,
I found my treasure
All I need is you by my side, so shine forever ♥

7. Joe Brooks – Superman

Oh, God, it’s so frustrating.
So why do I disappear when you come near?
It makes me feel so small.
….
If I could be your superman, I’d fly you to the stars, and back again.
….
But I can only write this song, and tell you,
That I’m not that strong.
Cause I’m no superman, I hope you like me as I am.

No it ain’t no lie, I have to tell you how I feel.
But each time that I try, It gets a little more unreal.
You say my name, Oh, God, I can’t stop shaking.

8. Cher Llyod – Love me for me

A doll house is all that you could see, but it’s so far from my reality
I got problems, I got issues. Sometimes it’s all too much for me
….
I been trying, trying.. Hold my head up high
I been lying, lying.. Keeping it all inside
…..
I’m done, I give up .. I don’t wanna pretend no more
….
That ain’t the way you oughta live
Cause I don’t want you to love me.. If you don’t wanna love me for me

9. Hunter Hayes – Wanted

You know I’d fall apart without you, I don’t know how you do what you do ‘Cause everything that don’t make sense about me, makes sense when I’m with you

lalalalala…

Cause I wanna wrap you up, wanna kiss your lips. I ..wanna make you feel wanted
And I wanna call you mine, wanna hold your hand forever.
And never let you forget it. Yeah, I, I wanna make you feel wanted

Anyone can tell you you’re pretty, yeah
And you get that all the time, I know you do
But your beauty’s deeper than the make-up

And I wanna show you what I see tonight…
When I wrap you up, when I kiss your lips. I ..wanna make you feel wanted
And I wanna call you mine, wanna hold your hand forever

:’) a sweet song by a sweet singer! ♥

So.. now you know the soundtrack of my life 😉 I still have many thou. but I listen to them the most. because they are good representatives of my feeling! hehe

Do we have any similar songs in our playlist? 😀

Autumn in Europe – Part : ..on that Dinner

“What can I do to help?”

“Oh you can wash tomatoes, chilies, and Paprika, I will prepare the rest.”

I took out all of the things we have bought from the plastic. “Nutella oh my I really loved it, and Ferrero!!” I am like a child who just got a cotton candy, over-excited. He looked at me and smiled. Geez! stop smiling or I will fall ..haha.

“Where could I cut them?” He then opened the cabinet and took the plate. “you can use this”

After we cut all the things we needed, we then started cooking. Uh it wasn’t my best cooking, but when I asked him to try, “hmmm.. its okay” he said with a little nod. Ah atleast he seemed like it, -I hope-

We ate our dinner. I kinda explained him a little bit what I have cooked, “mmm, you could find much more yummy-er fried rice in Indonesia..” I knew it, he hide his little laugh while we had our dinner.. “hey why are you laughing!!” he could not hide his laugh anymore “hahaha, this food is good, but why you think its not good??” I felt ..so lucky! I am so lucky I met him, I was so lucky I could be in that moment with him that night.

He ate all the fried rice I cooked!

“its healthy food”

“you think so?”

“you don’t think so??”

“mmmm…”

“tomatoes, paprika, chilies, and chicken and rice, atleast better than junk food!”

“hehehe”

He really know how to made me happy. I wanted to wash the dishes after that, but he said not necessary because he got this dishes-washing-machine. That’s one of difference between my country and his. another one? he separate the waste! bio, degradable, non-degradable, while us? we put all of the waste in one bin.

“Is that you?” I looked at the picture in the wall, so many pictures there put in one frame. like ..”yeah, I am. when I was in Australia:)” I could feel that he really loved, enjoyed and treasure his moment in Australia. He said it was 4 years ago, “the best moment in my life.”

I WANT TO GO TO AUSTRALIA! I yelled that in my heart.

He offered me to watch TV, then we watched TV, it was like guessing game, they played some instrument and that girl and the boy on TV had to guess what’s the title of that melody and who’s the creator. It was nice TV show. Damn I really want to see Opera in real.

“I am sorry I didn’t really prepare..”

“No, its fine! I am happy you allow me to stay here.”

“you are my first surfer”

“wow really?oh i felt so honored”

“yeah, that’s why I don’t know what to do”

Gosh. they said Germany people are cold. NOWAY! they are so WARM! soooo ..warm.

“You can sleep if you want”

“yeah I think I will” I then go to the washroom, brushed my teeth, washed my face, change pants and shirt, and I was ready to sleep.

“Do you want a sleeping bag”

“eh?mmmm”  he then went away from me and in a few secs,

“here you can use my sleeping bag, it is so warm, i used it when I slept outside in the sand under the stars, and it kept me warm.”

Ah its very memorable and important sleeping bag for him! and I could use it, yeah I will use it, because at night in Europe must be so cold. I slept in a couch-bed he prepared for me.

When will you sleep?”

“I want to watch this first, but I will sleep later”

“okay, gute nacht”

I ..knew he went away five minutes after I said good night, I was thinking he did not want to disturb me by the TV noise while I was sleeping. I could not sleep.. I was thinking what had happened to me today. I got several offer after I said S.O.S, one guy messaged me, but he would be available around 10 pm. One guy texted me, “if you still need a place to stay, you can stay at my place (mention name)” but I forgot his name. lol, one guy called me, but he was speaking Deutsch! he is so nice, but too bad, I choose Stephan already. Oh once in my life I didn’t regret that I made a right decision.

I could sleep after that. I guessed I slept smiling.

Next, I will tell you what Stephan and I were doing in the next morning.

And more about what I was doing in Swiss. My Journey in Italy, France, and Austria as well!!

See you and thanks for reading<3
