Boxing!

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

Senandung Alam Kala Nyepi

Ganesha, my favo dewa. Taken by H.

This year is my first year to experience Nyepi. As we all know, the virus is still going on and we are advised to stay home until further notice. I've been staying home since mid March and doing my work from home. Yes, I am lucky enough to have this chance.

I expected my first Nyepi would be watching Ogoh-ogoh a day before Nyepi but the festival were postponed until August. Yea, so what can we do?

The landlord texted to inform some things related Nyepi, about the do's and dont's. I thought the internet would be turned off but the wifi and my provider didn't turn off the internet. So I was lucky, I can still work and connect to the world lol.


Everything was so quiet. I left my bed at 10 am, took shower, made breakfast then started to read the news and anything to wake my mind up. I started to work a little bit then I heard some noise from the back of the house. I thought people next door were doing something. I walked closer and found out that it was the sound of trees and wind. What a new thing.

When the sun set, it started to get dark. Super dark, really dark that you won't see anything. It felt like seeing something with closed eyes. Bali without nyepi is already dark at night, Bali at night is not my favo. I was inside, did my work. Then my friend texted me, "Checked out the night sky?" OMG yea, I forgot that it had no lights pollution outside. I opened the door, walked a bit to the garden, looked at the sky, and what I did was 😮😮😮😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

Sehari setelah Nyepi.

The stars were shining so bright. Not that they usually does not shining bright, but... this is the right moment to enjoy the night sky. I can see the stars, planets even, that clear. The sky was so dark that you don't even want to leave. You wanna stay outdoor and enjoy the night sky. But it was too creepy for me. Apalagi kata orang kalo nyepi tuh leak-leak pada keluar, apa ya nggak serem bayanginnya.

Tabanan

Then I remembered that I put "Enjoying Nyepi in Bali" in my bucket list. I did not even know why I did that. Well, yea to experience new thing I believe. But it was really worth it. Spending Nyepi in Bali is definitely worth it. If you love stargazing, make sure you spend Nyepi in Bali next time. I experienced a really wonderful Nyepi here. Like you connect with the nature. It's amazing. I can still feel the butterflies in my belly thinking about Nyepi 😍

Anyway, one of my bucket list ticked, so 😊 But sorry I can't show you the pictures of the night sky. I have no reliable cam for that haha.

How's your day-X self isolation?

[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

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
