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 We Need To Use A Plastic Straw?

 
Both I bought in Bali, the stainless was bought in Menjangan, the bamboo was bought in Little Talks Ubud

As we all know, plastic is one of the best inventions in the world. Unfortunately, this is becoming our main problem now. Too many plastic wastes that threaten the future of this earth. Here I am relying on people who work for biodegradable plastic. I hope that will works.

There are mostly two arguments about the usage of straw. Some people said that they use straw for medical and hygienic reasons. Some of them say they don't need to use the straw. For those who said that they need a straw for the medical reason, I can understand it. I can also understand how people need it for hygienic reason. They don't trust people enough that they clean the glass properly. As well as they might not clean up the spoon, fork, knife, and plate properly.

Everybody has their own reason. The thing is can they replace the plastic straw with something reusable if they can't live without straw?

When we went to Menjangan, this resort provides a very eco-friendly resort with less plastic usage. I don't need to explain how bad the plastic waste recently right? I just want to encourage people to use the reusable straw if they really need the straw. It could be stainless steel straw, could be the one from bamboo (I have them all). One straw cost at least 15k-20k. Such a cheap price for a lifetime straw.

How to clean up the straw? Put a little bit more effort to do that because when you use it for drinking thick yogurt, and not directly wash it, believe me, you will need to put a little bit extra effort to clean up. Could use some hot water or boil the straw, and use the brush for straw (which I just ordered today, cost 15k-40k depend on how beautiful the package is). But this isn't the problem right? You also wash your spoon and fork, then why not with your straw? (I start to imagine bringing my own spoon fork knife to eat in the restaurant 😯).

From the economic perspective, it might bring some lost for entrepreneurs who use plastic as their main sector, but self-awareness is also needed. Aware of how using plastic too much is threatening the world. It is happening now.

Two options: Let your kids suffer in a very bad world in future or try to save it now!

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
