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

Ceplas ceplos


Be honest, I was dreaming to work in an international company since I was kid. Like being a career woman in a great company is always look amazing and great. Always wearing a beautiful clothes, shoes, and got paid very well. Well.. that was me who just seeing something by its look. Doesn’t know the essential value. I was nothing, didn’t know anything about life, about stuff and things in life. About what makes us happy. Just yeah, it like better to stay in a comfort zone. And I really don’t like being a teacher. Because when seeing my father and his whole family, are all teacher (mostly), that make me feel like “Hmm boring, having a family and most of all are teacher”.

That was when I didn’t know anything in life, didn’t know the value of life
Then few years later, when I start to think about everything more globally, I see that everything changes. Everything turn in opposite. I start to fall in love with teaching. Fall in love with students. Fall in love with the time when inform and get the students understand what I am talking about. I love it. I am really into it. And it makes me find myself in teaching.

But then, parents start to ask “don’t you want to work in a great company?”. Well at that time, I start to feel “Wow.. working as an officer is no fun at all, I guess”. But they ask me to give it a try, so I tried. Applied in a great company, international one, and got rejected. Doesn’t mean that I didn’t match with theirs but they underestimated me. Like “Oh.. you are a bachelor, we don’t need a bachelor to do this stuff. Just a high school student is enough for this job”, but when the high school student apply, they will say the opposite. When I went outside the office after the interview, I said “Oh,.. you humiliate me. Lets see in few months. I’ll get into a great company better than yours and got paid much better than yours. Will see!!”. Taraaaa.. it happen to me. Few months later I got accepted in a great company, handle international users, and it give a chance to me to improve myself in Korean. I have to learn more and more.
Then no problem, although I don’t really like working in a company, but this one give me a good opportunity to improve myself too. I try to enjoy it now, and so far so good. But still, I miss being a teacher

What I am talking about is all about “Ceplas Ceplos”. That is something that I said accidentally without thinking first. Any moral value? Yes I guess so. I hate teaching at first, but then God ask me to learn how to love something that I hate. Then I fall in love with it. Then working in a company, God ask me to like it more. Then I start to enjoy it. 2 months and well.. its ok. So the point is don’t hate something too much, because you will be asked to love it someday, I don’t know why but it happen a lot in life. Also, try to talk about something good. Because someday it will happen to you. So can you imagine what will happen if you talk about bad thing in your life?? Maybe gonna ruin your life.

Yeah.. I always tell something good in my life, because it will give me a positive energy to make it happen. Well maybe I forgot what I am just saying, I just didn’t realize that what I am doing now is always lead me to something that I just said. So… why not telling someone at least to ourselves about something good and what we want?

But still, in the end we have a highest approver for everything we do. It just God knows what is better for us. In our point of view, “This A is better for me. I wont doing that B”. But God point of view, “Hey no, this B is much better for you. I always know what is better for you”. Just… don’t be arrogant as a human. We are just nothing. Just have to do the best, try, and don’t forget to give it to the highest approver :)

*this will work out for someone who believe that there is God as our creator

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

Gojek ke bandara juanda

While waiting, jadi mending berbagi sedikit soal gojek. Karena saya adalah pengguna setia gojek, saya pengen cobain ke bandara pake gojek. Awalnya saya kira tidak bisa *itu emang sayanya aja sih yang menduga nggak bisa*, trus tanya temen katanya bisa karena dia sering ke bandara pakai motornya. Nah berarti gojek bisa dong?? Sebelum-sebelumnya kalo naek gojek selalu bayar cash, tapi kali ini pengen cobain top up go pay. Minimum top up 10ribu. Jadi saya cobain deh 30ribu dulu. Eh ternyata lagi ada promo 50% off kalo pake go pay. Haiyaaaaa kenapa ga dari dulu aja ngisi go pay hahaha. Dari kantor ke bandara juanda sekitar 8km. Kantor saya sih daerah rungkut industri. Penasarannn banget ini abang mau lewat mana ya. Tertera di layar 22ribu, tapi karena pakai go pay diskon 50% jadinya tinggal 11ribu. Bayangin tuhh... pake bis damri aja 30ribu hahaha. 11ribu udah nyampe bandara. Biasanya 15ribu ke royal plaza dari kantor haha. Lagi untung. Bagus deh. Nah sepanjang perjalanan, saya mikir ter
