Merah Putih

Gw sama Indonesia itu ibarat dua sejoli dalam love and hate relationship. Gw terlahir di tanah yang diperjuangkan orang-orang terdahulu. Nggak keitung berapa juta nyawa hilang untuk itu. Gw bersyukur gw nggak perlu lagi bawa bambu runcing untuk merebut negeri ini dari tangan penjajah. Sejak sebelum nikah gw mulai "berteman" dengan birokrasi dua negara. Birokrasi dari Belanda, tentu saja tidak seribet birokrasi di negeri ini. Segala macam email akan segera dibalas dan dibantu untuk dihubungkan ke pihak terkait atau yang menangani itu. Bahkan untuk permintaan Schengen visa tipe kunjungan keluarga di masa pandemik ini diberikan high priority dan email dibalas dalam sekejap. Sedangkan di Indonesia, aaahhh yaaa gitu dehh.

Tapi, nggak akan pernah gw pungkiri tiap kali gw denger lagu Indonesia Raya gw selalu mewek. Tiap kali liat bendera Indonesia, gw diam sebentar  berterima kasih atas nikmat bisa tinggal di negeri ini tanpa perlu memegang senjata. Gw bener-bener marah saat suami g…

Series I watch

Let's put Korean drama aside, because that doesn't count. That is still the first list hehe

But, I watch another series. Here are the series I watch :

Friends.

buzzfeed
It is old but I don't know why I love this series since I was at uni. It was once on TV. But recently I watch it from season 1. Now I am on season 4 of it. This series is just crazy. Like a real life and show me a lot of things that I feel it just happen now but actually it already happen years ago. I just simply like it and I slowly like Chandler and Joey haha. And of course the 'I'll be there for you'. What is crazy thing is they got paid USD 21,000/episode in their first season and the last season they get paid USD 1 Milion per episode. Crazy huh?

The Flash.

I am in love with Barry Allen. Well the one in this series, not the one in Justice League. I was kinda disappointed by that because that is not Barry that I want to see lol. Season 1 and 2 was great for me, now I am on seas…

Gagal Diving

I was doubting for awhile to take diving course because : I can't swim properly, I am afraid of deep down underwater (because it is dark), and I am afraid of accidentally meet the sharks.

But then I said yes for that. Why? Because this experience you couldn't take when you have babies lol. At least I tried to open to a new thing that I was so afraid of. Lebih tepatnya parno sih.

We spent our first day watched video about diving, explanation and this and that. Dry. Well.. I mean you sit down for hours, watching and listening to diving theories and stuff. Dry, tiring, and make us sleepy after lunch. Kinda slow for that... because we stop it when we saw deer approaching us and focus on taking photo of them 😜 and also it consist of 5 parts and loonngg.



So first day, exhausted and fun 😛

Second day, supposed to practice in a pool for whole theory we watched, but end up only 2 parts (incomplete pula). Why? Again, here, it is me, slow slow.

Well.. first she taught us to install the…

Menyatu Bersama Menjangan

Hore! Udah ketemu suami, udah fully charged. Hmmm nggak ding, nggak full banget soalnya saya sakit 😢

Tanggal 11 kemarin, HJ pilih untuk terbang langsung ke Bali. Dubai - Bali, rencananya sih pake Emirates tapi jam yang masuk akal itu Singapore air, jadilah pake SQ.

Stopover singkat di Singapore, dia berburu tas yang udah lama diincar di Dubai ternyata sold out, nemu di Spore. Thanks to Desi dan Andri yang udah mau muter buat ngecek availability nya tas itu. Nah saya nyampe Bali jam 10 pagi, HJ nyampe jam 11. Kata dia antri customnya panjang banget, jadi nunggu gitu, sejam kok ndak keluar-keluar ya... ternyata kopernya ga kebawa. Dua jam ditunggu tetep nggak ada kopernya. Akhirnya dia bikin laporan ke SQ kalo kopernya nggak keangkut. Yaudah deh saya nunggu lamaan lagi ya, eh tiba-tiba dia nongol geret kopernya juga. Untungnya kopernya diangkut penerbangan dari Singapore ke Bali yang nyampe jam 12. Tapi karena delay itu dia dapet kompensasi 500ribu, sembari bilang '…

Merinding di Basilica Cistern

lonelyplanet
Basilica cistern has become one of the spookiest place for me. If you see the pictures on google search, you will think like 'Oh wow nice.. yellowish inside'. In fact, it is dark. DARK. For me who have a bad sight, it is dark. Imagine you are having a candle light dinner (atau nyalain lilin sebiji pas mati lampu demi menerangi satu rumah gede).

I went there two times. First with HJ, second time with parents in law. Ticket was Lira 20.

First impression was 'wow... great... wow...' and then 'uhh why is so dark here?' then 'pakkkkkkk auh my feet hit something. I barely see anything' (Lebay sih). But it was like that. Did you watch Inferno? This place is on Inferno's scene. (I didn't watch Inferno actually, I knew it from HJ lol).

It is impressive inside. A water tank, uhmm yea let say water tank, underground water tank was built around 3rd and 4th century. It is located close to Ayasofya, around 5-10 mins walking. Especially the exit i…
