Lembang, Bandung

Finally we went to Bandung for the holiday~
Actually I don't think I can make it since I always hesitate to go. Then, Ssu ask us to go together~ This is my first time riding a train to Bandung and it was an amazing moment. The ticket is around 85K IDR. We get to ride a Parahyangan Train on 5am departure. I can't sleep actually because I'm afraid I will be missed the train. 

After we arrived at Bandung station, then we hop on our travel car. You can rent a car plus driver for 400K IDR per day plus 150K for gasoline and another 50K for tip of driver. 

We arrived at Bandung around 8.30am so we plan to have a breakfirst. We went to Miss Bee Providore restaurant in Ciumbaleuit. The restaurant have a really sweet ambience with vintage-ish interior. The restaurant itself built in a house and located a bit far from the main street. There are several zoning you can choose: glasshouse, outdoor, kids playground, and inside the house itself. They have two open kitchen. I'm amazed by how they utilized their front yard to be kids playground, even they have some of rabbit holes in it! The glasshouse is amazing though. The structure is clean. They open at 7am and only served breakfast menu until 11-12am. So we ordered 2 menu and believe me, they have a huge portion. That is why the price is rather expensive but worthy to a bit. I order lychee tea for about 20K++ IDR but you can fill your cup like three times I think? I really enjoyed the ambience, interior, and even I have chance to catch up with some bunnies!

So after leaving Miss Bee at 10.30 am, we go to Lembang to meet some of dutches in Fram House, Bandung. The ticket is around 10K IDR but you can have free milk or sausages. They said that the place is just opened so its a bit crowded. Selfies everywhere~ 
I love how they portayed european ambience in this place to its detail! Their mini shops is really cute tho. They have hobbit house too! (yeah I know, New Zealand and Netherland is really far hhaa) I really fascinated about how they can managed all of the flowers and plants~ Its really pretty~
They have some of animals to be display too. You can see some of birds in cage, bunnies and sheeps! The white sheeps just like you see in Shaun the Sheep hehee

After that, we go to De'Ranch. I never go to any ranch before so Its really good to see a lot of beautiful horses in one place. The ticket is IDR 10K and you can do a lot of activities in here like: riding horses, riding little pony, climbing, some water playground, etc. I think, the facilities are addressed for family who have little children so for young adult like us there are not many choices than riding horse, take some photos, and eat. We don't have chances for riding because we don't have much time there.

For total cost we spent:

Train Ticket : IDR 160K
Travel Bus: IDR 150K
Ticket: IDR 20K
Etc: IDR 100K
Total: IDR 430K

Just Imagining Happy Things!

When the round sun rises the first
thing I do is to think happy thoughts...
One, two, three get up from the bed
give a great big yawn like a hippo...
Open both eyes nice and big
stretch out ...
Enjoy the happy imaginations
Don't forget happy happy things.

In the morning with a refreshing breeze
when I'm chilling out...
When I look even better than usual
and everyhing I put on seems to be even prettier
When I walk listening to your favorite music
when I get to the bus on time...
When the rush hour is especially bad
but the guy in front of me gets up
When everything works out as expected
from now I set my own expectations
When I eat something very tasty
Oh my! Didn't even push but easy trip to the bathroom
Oh! When I leave on bonus vacation
Along with him, my love...
Just imagining this makes me feel so happy
Don't forget! Happy happy things.

When I see my friends for the first time in a while
When I just feel so good and I dance! my! ass! off!
When my brain just seems to work well
You don't say! I didn't even study but got a hun-dred
Oh! When you miss that someone
When you understand my feelings
Just imagining this will make you happy
Happy, happy things-
Something that anyone can do
if you want a happy life
Just imagining this will make you happy
Don't forget! Happy happy things.

A Post for The End of This Year

Hellooo from the other side hehe

This time I want to share my 2015 lately.. there are many things I have to be grateful for. I learned many things, I failed many too. I step closer to freedom yet I have to be struggle to be independent. I dream of being success, yet I'm not sure if I already in the right path or not. Like IU's song in 23, I spent my 23 just like irony: I have the darkest side yet I think I'm really a good girl. I want to make money but I want to be free. I want to fall in love but I want to act childishly annoying.

Fly the time to the beginning of 2015.

January. I got a job. It's not like job that you think before, I have a unique one. I am grateful that I can open one door of new opportunity, new side of my self. I studied a lot of new things, in between architecture, interior and urban matters. Real good except for I have to commute and wasting a lot of time to travel. Yet, I'm not a good worker though. I already propose to take a break for 10 days (that's a lot!) But I believe that decision I make, get me to the new interesting things. I took time to traveling with my bestfriend to Singapore and Malaysia. We stay with local people in their apartments which I never tought to try before. We got to know better the citizen plus their city, we plan our schedule by ourself, we go around in the city without problem. We save alot of money from not taking any to hotel cost. As a plus we got the new family. It changes my whole perspective about traveling. Don't have to waste alot of money to get the experience. Before this, I believe that I won't go anywhere without an important things to do and alot of people as my company. Now I think I can go anywhere by myself hahaa... Nice. Really nice~

February. I met a lot of great people. The project already started and we have opportunity to share the stories, experiences. My collagues is the best too. I learned alot about their motivation, their dreams, determination to get what they want. I kinda envy, actually. I just take things too slow.

March. Project getting busy and busier. Its not that I'm asking "do we have to do things like this?" but at that time I don't know if it really make me learn much or not. I feel so down at this time. A lot of rejections, surveys, presentations, and yet I can't predict anything about this project.

April. I joined Komunitas Inspirasi Jelajah Pulau. You can say its an escape from working, but actually I always devoted my time to do something beside my usual activities. Moreover, its about kids, education, and rural community. Island, beach and the sea is a big bonus! Why, why... I can't refuse to not to join. Its turn out to be my precious opportunity to connect with another great fellow. I get to know a lot of professional from many fields. Later I get to know Rumah Harapan, Save Payon Campaign, Bogor Traveler from KIJP~ so happy~

May. I met great friends from Bogor traveling community. You know, joined Komunitas Inspirasi Jelajah Pulau give me chance to connected with people who have the same hobby. Actually I really want to travel more. But sometimes, waiting your friends to make some time and traveling with you is not that easy. This is the place where we can join travel, and we will make it even just 3 people who is going, feel free to join or make plan later. No hard feeling at all! I already wandering to Ujung Genteng, Gunung Salak, and Gunung Padang. Hopefully will make another trip to the great place

June. Not much things happened. I think I starting to doubt about my choice. Really, I don't know anymore about things I want to do actually hahaa. Maybe its because of 20 something life crisis, right? When you think you already feel free from college and got a job then you don't know what kind of job you really want. Honestly I always want to be enterpreneur. But I like to learn anything so I actually enjoying academic things like research, make paper, competition, etc. If I'm not mistaken, at this month, I have to complete my paper for engineering international seminar research at Lombok.

July. Hemm.. I don't know if I have any decent memory or not about this month..but I feel so sad because studio will be empty soon. All of internship student will be back to their home when I feel we already really close. This month is Ramadhan if I'm not mistaken. A lot of events for breakfasting. But I can't fulfill my target this Ramadhan. Kinda sad...

August. Alot of things happened. Just. A. Lot. hahaha.. This month got me to a really painful memories yet I have the most pleasing news and event. Painful memories? Its a secret though but it hit me in my deepest heart. For all people's sake, I think I will take this matter with me down to my grave. Yet I got announced that 2 of my design product already curated and allowed to be exhibited in Glasgow, United Kingdom! Two products! Can you imagine? Happy tears! Oh yeah, I presented my paper too so at this month I fly to Lombok and get a chance to touch beach and sand again~~ oh yeah, because of the paper at Lombok, we have opportunity to be a speaker for JKTWS 2015 and it means I have to presented my paper in front of Japanese professor and students. So much feels. One more things, because of the graduation of my best friends, I have chance to illustrated Dr. Seuss' book: Oh The Places You'll Go and give it to them as present. I hope in the future I can illustrated more books.

September. New project. New responsibility. Honestly I think its a bit annoying. Oh I don't know why but I don't know what to do. Its like they are dragging me before I make decision. They give me no choice to left. Oh why. But dearrr in this month I have the most pleasing experience everrr. We have a chance to exhibit our products at Glasgow, United Kingdom. You know, its always my dream to be surrounded with old buildings, red mapple leaves, autumn feels~ moreover, you go there because they appreciate things you make. This is my first time go accross the continent. Then I believe someday I will go there again. I will. Definitely.

October. I joined KIJP again as inspirator! What an experience! I always join as a photographer before because I don't have a proper experience of being a professional. Then, I was recommended for join as inspirator. It means I have to teach a class and its much more difficult than I think before. For bonus, Pari Island is really beautiful! I enjoyed every inch of this island.

November. Last month of one project. It give lot of feels. At the same time I feel happy and annoyed lol. I'm happy finally this is reach to the end, but not so smoothly so I'm kinda sad. I learn more about community. I got chance to fill in a psychology class, and maybe I have interest in tutoring hahaa. But this month really give me a nerves. Lot of things to do but all of people are missing already. Busy but there are just plenty of us who still left.

December. Hemm.. I'm not sure but I think I really need a better plan fot the next year. 2015 was awesome yet I still have  alot of things to do left. Actually I have a lot of drawing commisions, sewing commisions, design, writing, etc, but I have to do it one by one. I'm sorry to dissapointed you all.. I don't have intention to hold the project but juggling to one another is much more difficult now. I'm thinking of have a new job next year. I'm about to resign because I don't think I can do the commute everyday.

So, I still have many things to do until the new year come. I will work my ass off to finish all.
I have many plans in my head for 2016 and I can't wait to do it already. My birthday coming so soon. Good bye my puzzling 23~ I hope I can manage all of things better in the future. Next year target I want to apply for some of university so that I can learn more. I want to do my business too. I will go to Korea XD. Hope it will going well.
