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

Do You Celebrate Valentine?

  
@HipDict - @9Gag

So today is 16 February, and this is Chinese new year. Happy Chinese new year!

Usually people celebrate valentine on 14 February. Not everyone, but most of people. I realize few things : some people really waiting for that day and seriously celebrate it, the other people use it for fun, and some people don't give a shit about it.

It is not a serious day to be celebrated for me. Well, maybe, usually when I was still 'active' outside, most of friends gave me chocolate (not only me but they were so kind and buy so many choco to share with people). But other than that, no. I never have a special celebration for valentine. Not even cute romantic special dinner, not even a flower (lol gw minta nih sama suami, gatau doi peka apa nggak).

So last year, I still remember, I was still working and spend my February 14th with my colleagues by eating chocolate that I had from everyone. You know it was like the only one who didn't share chocolate is me! And my fiance back then message me in the morning 'I know you don't  celebrate valentine hun but happy valentine'. That time I only said 'I just wish we can get married soon and have fix date to get married lol'. That was counted sweet message for me. And what I get yesterday from him was this :
 
Sweetest valentine message ever 😂  (taken from etsy.com)

It's not important for me to celebrate valentine, I never demand things to celebrate this kind of things. What is important for me is only how I spend the time with my husband (and good 'bed time' of course 😋). He definitely gave me more than just a romantic dinner or flower. But I do seriously want you to give me flower lho sayang 😋😂

Mengenal Nyai, Eyang Buyut Orang Indo Kebanyakan

  Seperti yang pernah saya tulis sebelumnya tentang darah campuran Eropa, saya pernah janji nulis tentang orang Indo dan Nyai, nenek buyut dari para Indo kebanyakan. Sekarang kita liat definisi dari Indo sendiri. Jadi Indo (Indo-Europeaan atau Eropa Hindia) adalah para keturunan yang hidup di Hindia Belanda (Indonesia) atau di Eropa yang merupakan keturunan dari orang Indonesia dengan orang Eropa (Kebanyakan Belanda, Jerman, Prancis, Belgia). Itulah kenapa saya agak risih mendengar orang menyebut Indonesia dengan singkatan Indo. Karena kedua hal itu beda definisi dan arti. Sekarang apa itu Nyai? Apa definisi dari Nyai? Nyai adalah seorang perempuan pribumi (bisa jadi orang Indonesia asli), Tionghoa dan Jepang yang hidup bersama lelaki Eropa di masa Hindia Belanda. Hidup bersama atau samenleven yang artinya kumpul kebo, tidak menikah. Fungsinya nyai itu apa? Fungsinya diatas seorang baboe dan dibawah seorang istri, tapi wajib melakukan kewajiban seorang baboe dan istri. Karena mem

[Piknik] Prambanan lagi

Salah satu pesona Jawa Tengah adalah Candi Prambanan. Saya sudah 3 kali berkunjung ke situs warisan dunia ini. Candi yang terletak di perbatasan Jawa Tengah dan jogja ini selalu menimbulkan kesan mistis bagi saya. Terletak tak jauh dari jalan raya, sehingga mengunjunginya pun sangat mudah. Berbeda dengan Candi Borobudur yang letaknya sangat jauh dari jalan raya besar.  Ok, menurut saya ada 3 cara menuju candi ini. Menggunakan bus transjogja, taksi, dan kendaraan pribadi. Bagi yang menggunakan transjogja, saya pernah menggunakannya berangkat dari daerah kampus UNY, daerah Depok Sleman. 1 kali transit, 2 kali berganti bus. Dengan harga transjogja yang kala itu, 2014, seharga 3500 rupiah. Tapi sampai saat ini masih sama harganya, menurut info dari teman. Lokasi shelter bis berada agak jauh dari pintu masuk lokasi candi, mungkin kira-kira 500meter sampai 1kilometer. Kalau jalan, menghabiskan waktu sekitar 15-20menit. Bisa juga naik becak untuk opsi yang lain. Lagi-lagi, jangan lupa men
