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

Days Without Phone

Iya nggak nyambung, tapi ini juga diambil dari hape

My old stupid phone has shown me so many signs of being a dying phone. But of course I ignored it. I never bought phone unless I really need to change it or it is really dead. I can remember how many phones I had. My first phone was Nokia 3310. The big hard phone that you can use to hit someone with it. The second one was a gift, Sony Ericsson the first camera phone. Then the third was Samsung Galaxy Mini (lol! this is epic. New beginning of smartphone). Then I bought iphone when the Samsung officially dead.

Until this old iphone (I used it for 3 years), apparently can't update things anymore, insufficient memory, crash here and there. So yesterday, he dead in peace. He dead when my friend send me bunch of pictures of her holiday and then it dead. Just like that. It's time.

So technically I can't be reached that easily since thursday. I am only on FB messenger and skype, but only when I log on into my computer (and will be for some more days). Only depend on those two applications, in case somebody need me or whatever it is. TBH I feel so peaceful 😁. I don't need to rush on my phone checking my whatsapp (you know how crazy whatsapp groups when they are on, thought something important came up), or instagram, or whatever it is. Smartphone nowadays automatically make you addicted to it. Sometimes you don't even need to check your phone, but this addiction push you to check it as if something came up. You know, I ever felt that my phone is ringing or vibrating, so I check it but nothing show up there. Anyone felt like this?

I remember a series about alien that lived in earth and never wanted to get a phone. Now I know why lol

There are several discussions about how smartphone effect us daily. One reason it's not good for life, but on the other hand smartphone helps us in every possible way that I don't need to walk to ATM center to send money or pay my bills.

Have you heard about phubbing? It's kind of new term that means you ignore people who talk with you (or together with you) by playing on your phone. It is that actually happen nowadays right? A family together in same dining table, instead of talking to each other they are on their phones. Friends hanging out together like "hey let's meet up. I miss you all", but instead they still on their phones. I think it because smartphone is really addictive, in a way. That is why I reduce the usage of my phone when I am with my husband because time we have is limited. Why waste time on phone if we are together?

Funny fact, when I am with him, some friends or family will text me like "ARE YOU ALIVE?" 😂

But on the other hand, smartphone helps a lot in life. Pay the bills, order taxi, foods, transfer money, pay everything by scanning the bar code (cashless is amazing), and this and that. So you do also feel those convenient functions smartphone offers us.

It's just like a coin, two sided. Just, stop when you tired. That's all! (otherwise your phone will stop its life lol)


And by today, I miss my grab and gojek app! Especially when I can't order cheeseburger midnight!

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

Dapet Visa UAE (Dubai) Gampang Banget

Dubai creek Beberapa waktu yang lalu, kita pusing berat karena H dapet libur kali ini cuman 10 hari. 10 hari dari yang biasanya 14 hari. Akhrinya diputuskan untuk tetap mengambil libur tapi nggak ke Indonesia.  Ternyata, beberapa hari kemudian, dia bilang, kalau liburnya malah jadi 7-8 hari aja. Mau ga mau saya yang harus kesana. Maksudnya terbang mendekatinya. Udah milih-milih negara mana yang harganya rasional, yang ga banyak makan waktu buat terbangnya H, dan tentunya ga ribet urus visa buat pemegang paspor hijau yang ga sesakti paspornya H.  Btw warna paspor Indonesia jadi biru ya sekarang?? Pilihan jatuh ke Dubai. Pemegang paspor hijau harus bikin visa, ya pusing lagi deh cara bikin visa Dubai nih gimana. Apa iya sesusah bikin visa schengen, visa US, visa lainnya. dari persyaratan sih standar ya, termasuk  record  bank account selama 3 bulan. Emang nggak pernah bikin visa Dubai sebelumnya ya, apalagi H yang paspornya super sakti kemana-mana (hampir) ga perlu visa, dia ga pernah ad
