bisa wrap sendiri setelah 2 bulan Akhirnya gw nggak cuma mendambakan, "Ahh pengen boxing deh" tapi beneran bayar buat boxing. Udah beberapa bulan ngintip instagram tempat boxing deket rumah gw, udah berbulan-bulan disuruh H buat berangkat, akhirnya gw mantapkan hati "Yaudah lah cobain dulu sekali" yang ternyata gratis trial ya. Karena baru pertama kali, ya gw mau coba yang basic aja.  Setelah satu jam, penuh keringat, gw langsung aja "Mas, bayar dong bulanan".  Gw bener-bener orang yang nggak bisa olahraga sendirian. Karena kalo sendirian, gw pasti boongin diri gw sendiri "Ah kan ga ada yang liat, udah ah nggak kuat" konyol. Tapi kalau ada minimal, pelatihnya, kita udah engap pasti mereka teriak-teriak "10 MORE SECONDS! AYO AYO BISA!!!" Kek malu lah kalau nggak lanjut, yekan? Plank dari cuma bisa 10 detik, jadibisa 20 detik, 30 detik, jadi 40 detik, gara-gara "AYO KAK BISAAAAAA!!!" Antara sebel, kesel, tapi ya seneng 😆 Jadi m

Short Visit to Bentoel Museum


This is part of improving my photography skill. So my friend, Sunan, will be included here.


It was a sudden decision. So we decided to visit Bentoel Museum in Malang. It's like House of Sampoerna (which I never visit and only plan to visit but no action). Why did we want to visit this museum? Because the museum is actually the house of Bentoel's founder. Our mission lately is snapping pictures of old buildings and such around the city, as well as learning how to take beter pictures.

he is just happy and allow me to put his photo on my blog or another website and I like this shoot

There is no fee to visit this museum, it is enough to sign the guest book. And then you can explore what's inside. Actually, there are not many things inside. But the objects inside tell you about the history of the Bentoel brand and how it was founded. Ong Hok Liong used his own house as the first place to produce the cigarettes and it is located in Jalan Wiromargo (around pasar besar Malang).  He sold the cloves and tobacco that are ready to use (kretek), turns out people love it because they only needed to prepare the paper to smoke (klobot). The name of the company was Strootjesfabriek Ong Hok Liong.

When he used this old name of the company, the business was not so profitable. Then he went to Gunung Kawi to find a better name for this company and changed it into Bentoel. Bentoel brand grew bigger as it is always in the top 10 of tobacco company in Indonesia. (This is written in Panduan Jelajah Kota-kota Pusaka di Indonesia - Emile Leushuis, as well as written in the big board in Bentoel museum)


There are so many photos of old times, and how this company grew up from a scratch to becoming part of British American Tobacco in 2009.

But what interests me more was the building. It is definitely the old building, old house, and how much I love old architecture like this. Why do I like old architecture like this? Because reminds me of the first ten years of my life when I used to live in a colonial-era house, similar like this. I was really sad when they sold our old house. So I keep looking for old architecture to get me back to my old time. Crazy huh?


I had this kind of windows with double protections


the door and window

This house is a typical old house with a big yard, big door and windows. I like the floor, the old design of the floor. Although for so many people this kind of houses are always scary but for me, it is so appealing. They always have a story in every corner of the house. Maybe, maybe if I have money I would love to build this kind of house 😍

I Thought I Hate People, but...

Sanur ... but I actually don't! That I realized when I had dinner with H and he asked me, "Do you think she's married? The seller, she looks young but not too young."  So I said, "Uhmm I don't know and I don't care."  He then said again, "Yea I know, but I am curious about people. I am curious about what they're doing in life." That's when it came to my mind, "Wait a minute! I am also curious about people, but not their personal life like marital status, how many kids they have, what religion they believe in. I am curious about what they think about things! Ah that's why I love talking to people, no matter how introvert I am but talking to people still excites me." Then we finished our big nasi goreng together.  Looking back at it, I never really like people randomly talking to me when I was in the zone... Like zoning in and out talking to myself. But actually no, maybe it was only that we didn't sync so I went &qu

[Book] Dunia Cecilia

'apakah kalian membicarakan hal semacam itu di surga?' 'tapi kami berusaha tidak membicarakannya dekat-dekat Tuhan. ia sangat sensitif terhadap kritik' Yap, sepenggal dialog antara Cecilia dan malaikat Ariel. Saya mengenal Jostein Gaarder sejak kuliah. Ehhhh 'mengenal' dalam artian kenal bukunya ya, kalo bisa kenal pribadi mah bisa seneng jingkrak-jingkrak hehehe. Jadi karena teman saya mendapat tugas kuliah membaca satu novel filsafat berjudul Dunia Sophie, saya jadi sedikit mengetahui si bapak Gaarder ini. Enak ya tugasnya anak sastra baca novel, tugas anak matematika ya baca sih, tapi pembuktian kalkulus -_- Dunia Cecilia ini buku pertama Jostein Gaarder yang saya baca, karena buku Dunia Shopie sangatlah berat berdasar review teman saya. Saya sih nggak perlu baca buku itu karena teman saya sudah benar-benar mahir bercerita. Jadilah saya sudah paham bener cerita Dunia Sophie tanpa membacanya. Novel ini atas rekomendasi teman saya, dia bilang kala
