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.

I know it is not easy but you always surprise me in an unimaginable way.  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 c

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 dirasai
