Romanticizing My Cooking

Bakso I have to admit that my love for cooking is growing. It's growing and I can't believe it myself. This feeling has been like this since probably two years ago. Before, cooking felt like a hard work that I had to fulfill. It still is, but the difference is I enjoy it now. So it does not feel like I am forcing myself.  Back then whenever I cooked, it's either wrong recipe or incorrect measurement. It never tasted right. So I gave up cooking just because I never found the right one. And then I started to feel that I wanna eat better. I don't want to just eat whatever, I want to know what goes into my body. If I prepare it myself, then I know it's good one.  I don't eat too much sugar, sometimes it is hard to buy one thing outside and has a lot of sugar in it. So cooking it myself will allow me to control the amount of sugar. So I found recipes and I tried to make them. As to my surprise, they taste right! Exactly how they should have tasted. That made me happy

Marathon Malang - Jakarta -Jogjakarta -Malang

I went to Jakarta by train. Here I will tell about the price that I spent for this trip. I didnt buy many  things. I just spent the money for trasportation and eat. I admit it. This is not the best price that I can spent, but it might help you who will travel like me.

Starting point : Malang
I go to Jakarta by Majapahit train. Go to Jakarta at about 6.25 pm and arrive at like 10 am. *but mine was late*. It cost about 265k because we reserved the ticket about 3 days before we go. It was economic train but it has combination of 2-2 seat possition. You know, the standart economic train seat. Its different with Matarmaja train which has combination of 2-3 seat. It is much comfortable to sit or sleep in Majapahit train. The rest room also cleaner than Matarmaja. Of course, we paid 2 times than matarmaja, so we will have some comfort things. Overall its better. *ibaratnya nih ya, kaki diselonjorin panjang itu bisa banget*

Aha! About the price list of foods in train, I will post it separately

Jakarta :
We were in Pasar Senen station. And we were hungry. The most safest food to eat in jakarta is eating in a place like fast food. Ok we are looking for Atrium plaza that is near Senen. walk only 5-10mins. And we eat in Hoka hoka bento. Ordered value set menu, the cost about 25k. Same price wherever it sold. Aman.

Kota Tua :
Next destination is Kota Tua. We went by Bajaj. They offer the price about 50k but we bargain it and we have to pay 40k. It was little bit expensive. If you want to make it cheaper, just go by bus or angkot. But I dont know the rute hehe. By bajaj, we went about 20-30mins. Enjoy the Kota Tua and we were going to Museum Wayang. The ticket only 5k. maybe the others museums in kota tua also 5k too.

My friend place :
Her place in Kwitang area. Still in Central Jakarta. Actually it is closer to Pasar Senen, only 5-10mins. We went to this place by angkot about 3k until gajahmada and then went by Bajaj again 35k. And we met our friend. We eat lalapan tempe, cost about 10k.

Hotel Grand Sahid Jaya :
Next day we have to go to hotel by taxi. The location in  Sudirman. Went by taxi about 7km, cost about 40k. And go home by taxi about 5km, cost about 26k. It was cheaper because it is closer and we were stop in KFC. Eat the original package, about 28k. Then walk less than 2km.

Next day :
Time to go back to Jogjakarta. We were supposed to go back from Jogjakarta by train. Because the ticket from Jakarta to Malang were sold out at that day, so we take the alternative way. We go by train from Jakarta to Jogjakarta at 6.45am, arrived Jogjakarta at like 3 pm. Gajahwong train, cost 165k. Its ok still, like majapahit train. Then transit there for about 12 hours. Go back to Malang by train at like 1 am and arrive at 10 by Malabar train.

Incident happened. I check my ticket and I reserved the wrong day in ticket. So we cant go back to Malang by train. Another option is going by travel car. I reserved and yes we are going back to Malang by car, cost 140k.

Arrive in Jogjakarta in Tugu station, we were looking for the mosque to pray. We going there, walk in enjoy jogjakarta afternoon, and finally we found mosque and pray there. We walk in Malioboro street. You know what is Malioboro right? Its a paradise which sell very unique things very cheappppp. It jst about 25k each. When they say 40k, just bargain it. They will let you take it with only 25k. Murce ciinnn

I havent much time to stay in Jogjakarta like we supposed to do. So I just enjoy the atmospher there, take some pics, and waiting for our travel car. We call the drive many times and he told us about where we should wait. He said "mbak nunggu di sebelah selatan stasiun aja ya" or "nahh itu kan mbak dari arah barat, mbak jalan aja ke selatan". Hellk hello anyonghaseyo I hate when people tell me about the route using "NEWS" Or north east west north. Helo gue cewek. Mana tau arah pake gituan. Pake aja kanan kiri.

We ask people about the route and finally we met the driver even we were doing much efforts to met him haha. Kinda good person. And it is a comfy car. I sit in front. I can relax. At least if I cant sleep, I can look at the road in front of me. Not beside me hehhe

*attach the pics later

If Money Wasn't The Problem, What Would You Do?

In this extraordinary life, I would be a teacher still.  Helping people to understand even some little things to make them feel worthy and understand themselves better. It seems that teaching has become a calling for me. Not about teaching such specific subject like mathematics or so, but more like... I like to give new perspectives for people, and having them saying "Oh.... I see..." is satisfying for me. Of course, by teaching I can learn so many new perspectives from different people too. It's like the more I teach the more I learn, and that is so true. Maybe more like a guide. I like giving guidance to people who needs it. No, I don't like giving unsolicited guiding. I like to guide people who wants to be guided. I'd teach them how to love, love themselves first. Yea sure when we are talking about things, they would say "do useful things like engineering, plumbing, this and that" but they tend to forget that we need some balance in life. Not saying t

Cerita Karantina di Hotel

Cerita karantina selanjutnya 2 kali di hotel. Kali ini, semuanya berjalan lebih terkoordinir. List hotel karantina bisa dilihat di sini . Jadi nggak ada lagi drama nggak diladenin karena ina inu. Tinggal pilih hotel, hubungi hotel via WA atau email, kirim dokumen yang diperlukan, lalu kita dapat QR code yang nantinya ditunjukkan ke pihak bandara.  Karantina pertama kali di hotel gw bulan September kalau nggak Oktober 2021 dan bulan Januari 2022. Gw pesen di dua hotel berbeda. Karantina di hotel pertama dapet rejeki cuma 3 hari, jadi biaya yang dikeluarkan juga nggak sebanyak kemaren yang 7 hari.  dipakein gelang rumah sakit, dilepas pas check out. Nah, alurnya secara detail ada yang berubah sedikit tapi secara garis besar masih sama. Begitu datang, urus dokumen ini itu, lalu kita di PCR di lokasi. PCR ini hasilnya didapat dalam waktu 1 dan 2 jam karena ada dua lab yang berbeda. Waktu pertama kali gw karantina, gw harus nunggu hasil di bandara sebelum diangkut ke hotel. Tapi karantina k

Ujian hari senin

Kejadian ini terjadi tepat senin minggu lalu. Baru kali itu aku merasa 'WOW.. ini senin yeay'. Karena biasanya 'haduhh udah senen lagi'. Kebayang kan kalo seneng begitu dihari senen menyambut pagi dan hari itu rasanya langka banget. Otomatis pengennya hari itu berlangsung indah. Jam setengah 9 pagi, seperti biasa ke pantry ambil minum bareng sama temen sebangku. Dia bikin teh, aku nyuci botol sekalian ngisi dong. Seperti biasa juga, kadang aku males sih nyuci botol dengan ritual lengkapnya, akhirnya cuman bilas pake air panas. Ya mungkin nggak sampe 50 ml juga. Dikit banget deh. Temen juga selalu bersihin gitu gelasnya pake air panas. Pic source is here Eh lakok lakok... si bapak pantry yang serem itu tiba-tiba bilang 'Gak bisa ya gak nyuci botol pake air panas? Tiap sore itu banyak komplain gara-gara airnya abis'. Yakaliii air abis tinggal isi aja, ibu yang dulu aja nggak pernah ada komplain. Ya aku bilang lah ini cuman dikit, lagian yang ngelakuin ini
