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

Finding The Sun in Borobudur

 

We made plan to see the sunrise in Borobudur. Well.. Sunrise always good for making photos. Since we didn't stay in Manohara hotel which is FULLY BOOKED, we plan to join the sunrise borobudur next morning through this gate. Including ticket from this hotel.

The price for sunrise is quiet expensive than the normal one. I think it is always like that right?



We planned to wake up early, around 4 to get the Manohara entrance. Those guys are not morning people, but they have to wake up for the sunrise.

At 4 am in the morning, we met in front of our room and then we walked to Manohara hotel (about 10mins walk). Not so many people there (but the hotels are fully booked!), maybe because we came too early. Queue up to get the ticket, and the staff asked me 'Are you still Indonesian?, marrying foreigner doesn't mean make me automatically become foreigner huh!

So I paid Indonesian price for me, and he paid for foreigner price. We bought some snacks and tea/coffee to warm up the body, then we got the torch and then we go to climb the temple. After 15 mins on top of the temple, a lot of people coming.




tik tok tik tok tik tok..... at 6 am and the sun not coming yet. Where the hell the sun is???

Then HJ said that you have to wait at least till 6.30 or 7 to get some good photos because the mist will always be there. Okay we wait for awhile. Looking around the temple, try to digest what is the meaning of the relief there although for me it's like 'hmmm apa ya iniiii?', but still ok. I like it.

Flavio and his gf going down first to get the snacks and coffee that are provided from the hotel (ticket). Then his gf back to our hotel since she felt something wrong with her body. Well.. it can happen for pregnant women. And Flavio back to Borobudur while HJ and I tried to capture in some spots. We got some good photos and we walked down for the snacks. Flavio follow us after.





Well... for me, I love temples. Temples are always cute. Ok cute here on my own definition. The temples are magic, you know. Like Something magical that always make me think, 'how could they built something like this? how to put the stones here?', and many other questions.

But for Borobudur, it is good to come and see it at least once in your life. So stunning with the combination of stones and sun. But, this is always be the main destination for travelers, or for students who are on holiday. I remember, this also become our destination when I was at 6 grade. Like I said, after 7 am, this temple is gone. I mean, what will you see isn't the stones or the temple, but the students or little kids who try to take selfie in the top of temple haha!

Good to wake up early huh?

all photos are taken by me

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
