Same Stuff, Different Year?

I hope not!

So I actually have created another blog (I know......) for me to randomly write specifically in Bahasa Indonesia but guess what? It's almost March 2017 and I haven't got anything written on it yet.

I can give you all the excuses in the world, but let's not making me do so, ok?

The thing is.... my time management sucks. (There, I said it. I wanted to blame the time for ticking too fast, or the gloomy weather, or all the time consuming projects, or even the stupid internet connections, or whatnot, or whatnot - but I didn't. Well I kinda did lollll, but it's OK la?)

Let's not talk about it or else I will feel intimidated and feel depressed soon. It's too early to be in such despair, for 2017 still have 10 months to go. Right? You damn righty.

You might not care about what I write now but you know what, it's OK. I'll get back to this blogpost one day and glad I did this.

I was sick. But I do remember I went outside with mom during the firework parade and had some chit chats with my neighbours blahblah and gulped another dose of cough syrup and sincerely hoped it would be gone the next day (but it was not).

Mom went to Surabaya for my cousin (from dad's side)'s engagement day - and visited my brother and sis-in-law so I was given quite a huge task of taking care of both of my dad and my little brother. Health wise, I was getting better until my elder brother told me that mom was ill and can't get to the plane to go home. We were crazy worried and before I knew, my cough came back harder, trying to kill me. 3 days after, she flew back home, healthy. Thank God!

Ah, a cousin (from mom's side) of mine came to try her luck finding job in Jakarta. She stayed with us several times for one day or two for job interviews and to cut the story short, after many trips and efforts that she made, in the end she didn't get the job. Sigh.

The waiting game and struggle is real for the job hunters ya. I almost forgot how it feels to be honest. Conclusion: I AM OLD, WHY THANK YOU.

Bff's second child was having her 1st birthday party and I helped them being the photographer. Lousy but still helpful, I perhaps.

One of the highlight of this month: LA LA LAND. Ryan Gosling I can not. I still listen to the song up until today. It is crazy. Some people said it's OK-la, but I guess it's just my cup of tea. Today's note: the Oscar's fail to La La Land is ridiculously stupid.

And CNY. I swear it was the craziest CNY I've ever had in my life. From all the cookings and feasts and visits. I like the red envelopes and also the feasts but boy it was tiring as hell.

My January just went like that. It was overall a slow month, but very fast at the same time. I hope that makes sense for you lol. Now move on to my fave month of the year!

I am not a birthday-craze kind of person. It's just another number added to our age to me. It is never a big deal for me, even if you forgot mine, it's fine, really. When you know, or remember, please pray for me and that would be more than enough.

But the people surround me are crazy. I've got too much love this year and despite the fact that my birthday is just another day to me, I was happy. Thank you everybody! May God bless you and family too.

Nothing much on Valentine's day. The sweetest thing I received on that very day was "Happy Valentine's day........ Can you do this this this (work related)...." lol. Thank you.

My younger baby brother's birthday was a different thing tho. We got him a sushi birthday "cake" with candles to blow. We also gave him a Cajon as he always wanted it for so long. Happy brother happy family happy me! He received so much love as well... I sincerely thank you.

Another work work.
Probably another opportunity to serve again.
Still longing to have a new 'home'... Looking forward for the doors God will open for me the next 10 months ahead.

Now I gotta work again. Tired but oh well.
Have a good night errrrbody! God bless.
not gonna proofread and fine tune the writing cos life is short, my friend. Plus... ain't nobody got time fo that!

#30DAYSWRITINGCHALLENGE DAY 30: Highs and Lows of the month


Will finish it right, with actual writings and not just some ketikketikformalitas.

You know how time flies even faster this year, right?
It feels just like a blink of an eye and then.... December already, isn't it?

When I realised this year is gonna end soon, it got me a bit panicked, really. It feels like I haven't done anything meaningful this year to anyone.

But that's what I thought. Hopefully not.

This year runs too fast, I can't remember some of the details tho. But I made sure I remember all the fun parts and some deep lessons by writing it down in my book. It won't be perfect but I guess it's OK. Better than nothing, right?

The lows of this month would be........
1. I feel like I haven't do anything meaningful and useful this year :( I just feel I didn't try hard enough. Sigh.
2. My time management is so awful this month due to crazy weather and it's kinda hard to feel well and be all healthy. When I don't feel so well, I tend to procrastinate and.... you know the rest. Work is  piling up, deadlines are coming closer.... and WHAT? Christmas is just 4 days away? GOSHHHH!
3. Hearing some bad news from close friends, acquaintances, or whoever. I just feel like... gosh how fragile this life is. One day you have it, the other day you lose it. I hate goodbyes :(
4. I had instant noodles 2 days in a row. FAT.
5. It is a stressful year for me, really. It started really smooth tho, and things were just falling apart in the middle of the year and going downward spiral. Sigh.

The high of this month would be:
1. I know I hit the rock bottom and I've been trying to climb back with my Best Buddy, The Owner of my life, yes you know who He is.... JESUS!
2. I've been praying about this one thing and He had answered me. I don't have to be wondering around anymore.... time to move on.
3. I have done a service again.... in the place I have never imagined before. Thank You Lord!
4. To actually have my "motor" working again. It makes me feel alive. God makes me feel so alive again.
5. My Banoffee Pie was such a huge hit. Hope they all liked it :)

This month could be better but I couldn't ask for more. I am grateful (trying to always be grateful, I mean) for this month! I still have 10 more days until December (and also 2016) ends... I'll make it worth while.


OK, challenge is done.
I don't think I'm gonna do challenges again any time soon!

#30DAYSWRITINGCHALLENGE DAY 29: My goals for the next 30days

Today is Dec 21st.. so 30 days from now means until Jan 2017, right?

My goal is...... not to gain weight becos of this year end holiday.


#30DAYSWRITINGCHALLENGE DAY 28: 5 things that made me LOLd

This is hard cos I LOLd too much in real life.

1. Whenever I *judge* or make fun of someone with my mother.
Yes. She is the best of the best.

2. The inside joke between me and my BFF.
We talk about everything, everyone in the nicest, silliest but also crappiest way. Some of them still funny when I think about it.

3. This Ryan Gosling won't eat his cereal video. LOLLLLLL

4. Some other things on the internet.
Gosh People can be so creative and hilarious nowadays. Kudos to all of them!

5. "Internet itu udah kaya keluarga. Kalau mati rasanya sedih banget."
Roughly translated to: "Internet nowadays is like a family. People will get sad if it's dead." LOLLLL My Mom and I had a good 1 minute laugh from this one. #happinessshouldbesimplebruh

#30DAYSWRITINGCHALLENGE DAY 27: what's kicking ass (conversely)

To be honest......

I have no idea what's the command all about.
So.... I'll skip la.
Why not, right.

#30DAYSWRITINGCHALLENGE DAY 26: Which area in my life i'd like to improve

So many things. I guess.
I want to improve in writing.
Also drawing.

I recently miss the feel of playing keyboards, tho.
So maybe I want to improve in playing keyboard as well.

I really want to improve my concentration.
The older I get, the harder it is for me to concentrate.
Oh well.

I also need to pray better.

#30DAYSWRITINGCHALLENGE DAY 25: Think of any word, google image.

The original command was: think of any word, google image and write something from the 11th image.

I was thinking straightaway to the word "Luck", and I know exactly what I wanna say about luck. But then I need to google image so I did...... and here was what I got.


Let's just say I am lost for words now.
So........ nah. Imma skip this post just like this.
