BaliSeries (1): Makan di Bali Itu Murah

Gw tinggal di Bali udah hampir 2 tahun, jadi pengen bikin tulisan #BaliSeries. Bukan tentang Bali yang umum diketahui orang, tapi hidup di Bali sebagai orang biasa dengan biaya hidup yang masuk akal. Orang-orang taunya Bali mahal. Padahal nggak juga hey! Tiap kali ada yang tau gw tinggal di Bali, orang pasti bilang "Eh, hidup di Bali kan mahal banget!" Hmm... nggak juga sih. Jadi gw akan tulis harga-harga di Denpasar ya karena gw tinggal di Denpasar. Denpasar yang ibukota dan bukan tempat tujuan utama turis buat plesir.  Gw sering keliling Bali tapi karena gw nggak tinggal di sana jadi gw nggak bisa bilang mahal murahnya. Tapi kalau untuk ukuran turis, harga di daerah utara dan timur bisa gw bilang lebih murah daripada Denpasar, Ubud, atau daerah pantai barat. Oke, tulisan pertama ini gw akan bahas hal yang gw demen. MAKANAN.  Gw secara personal lebih suka makanan Jawa daripada makanan Bali. Makanan Bali cenderung penuh rempah, rasanya kuat. Yaa setelah hampir dua tahun sih g

You'll Be Missed, Grandma

  I took this flower-picture a few minutes before you leave us. That was the only time I leave you out of my sight. It's been a week, you are not around. Usually you open my door in the morning while holding Molly the cat, and said "Wake up, don't be late to work" Haven't heard that for a week now.  All of sudden you can't walk, you can't lift your arm, you can't talk properly you got a speech problem, you got a severe headache. Well it was not easy to bring you back to your room from the kitchen since you were well.. heavy. But I see it now as a kind of chance you gave me (and my lil sister) and I am thankful for that. It was a stroke and you had more than 50% blockage blood vessels in your brain. It was weird since you felt nothing before and you were fine. Nothing different physically. We really hoped that you'll recover. We even got plans how to take care of you when you leave hospital. But God knows better, right? God took you back
