Korean Barbeque

Ssam (쌈) also meaning wrapped. Typically Korean wrapped stuff to eat. I remember I post about my experience of eating kimchi for the first time got the highest view of all time here. It's kind of weird but it is.H never wanted to eat K-foods. He said that it doesn't look so appealing (how can he said that? 😣). I kept trying to lure him to try out K-foods. That when he wanted to eat some meat and then we chose a Korean bbq restaurant. He surprised that it came with so many side dishes and more importantly is the way they eat the meat with green leaf, mixed with kimchi and ssamjang.  Boy, look at the odeng and other side dishes! Ssamjang is the one next to the garlic. It's kind of similar to sambal but different. Japchae is the one that looks like bihun goreng.
The first day we ordered galbi and japchae. I really like japchae but it was very big for one person. We thought that the barbeque set will be less big for two, but it didn't. It was just enough for both of us. So, …

Tahun Ketiga Kami

I can feel the butterflies in my belly whenever I think about being married to someone I love. 
There's always room for agree to disagree, different opinions, bad times, rough times, pains, and any other unpleasure times. But there are always more and more space for pleasurable times.  Marriage is always challenging since day one. How can it be not challenging when you try to communicate what's in two different heads into one compromise that both can accept? But that's the beauty of commitment, I guess.

I am grateful for what we have now. Nothing can beat it.

Dear myself, thank you for always trying harder and not giving up easily to make it work. I know you can do it. You're a tough one. 
Dear us, let's make it work for many years to come. Let's grow old t…

Anjloknya Saham, Nanjaknya Emas

Aduh portofolio saham gw anjlog men, gara-gara covid-19. frangipani
Sounds familiar? Itu yang gw dengungkan sejak akhir Februari!! 😂

Sejak covid-19 menyerang, itu virus bener-bener ganas banget. Bukan cuma manusia yang disasar, tapi juga pasar saham di seluruh dunia. Gw lagi pantau akhir-akhir ini pasar US dan Kanada karena urusan kerjaan, eh nggak jauh beda juga nasibnya. IHSG sampai berdarah-darah tak terkira hingga pasar sempat ditutup karena turun 5%.

Dulu waktu krisis 98, gw masih SD kelas 1. Yang gw tau saat itu, yang gw ingat saat itu, TV rame protes dan kekacauan. Mamak gw ngeluh karena harga beras jadi super nanjak banget. Tapi yaa apa sih yang anak usia 7 tahun pahami tentang krisis moneter kala itu? Toh gw masih tetep jajan, masih tetep main, makan enak.

Nah, waktu kemarin IHSG seanjlok itu, gw tiba-tiba galau mikir duit cadangan ada berapa, aset ada berapa, hutang ada berapa, stok beras, stok indomie, segala-gala gw itungin. Ya ampun, mungkin ini yang dirasain nyak babe gw…
