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

Sunbathing, Why?


Growing up as an Asian, in a tropical country, make me want to avoid the sun as much as possible. Well... you obviously need the sunlight still, in the morning - but not during the hottest hour of the day. 

We’re taught to cover our bodies under the sun lol. Doesn’t really matter how, but fully covered by a jacket, long sleeves, or long pants while driving a scooter is definitely a normal thing to do in Indonesia 😌😎. 

On the other hand, foreigners find it funny. Because “It’s too hot to cover yourself like that under the sun”. Well... we have two things here in Indonesia. Humidity and high temperature. You’re so right about "it’s too hot to cover like that" because we have very high humidity. But when you don't cover yourself like that, the sunlight will “bite” you, and that way you'll get sunburn. 

Moving to Bali, I see too many foreigners driving the scooter nakedly. Yes, well, in a bikini or topless and very short pants. Like, almost naked. It always makes me think “OMG you’ll get a massive sunburn! Cover yourself ffs”. In the middle of the day.

This sunny, hot, it was 35 degree, without any shade 😑

As well as sunbathing on the beach, directly exposed to the sun, on its hottest day. I usually go to the beach around 1 PM as well, but I always find a shade. I can’t let myself get direct exposure like that. In Sanur, we have a lot of trees for shade. I went to Jumeirah beach in Dubai (not a lot of trees there, or should I say there is none?) and I was the only one who was fully covered. The others? Enjoyed sunbathing in their bikinis and swimming pants. 

Long pants, jacket, cover my head and neck too because it was just too hot and sunny. 

I know, that they live in 4 seasons countries and really appreciate the sun that much. I know how happy I was when I got the sunlight during winter. But... the sun in tropical countries is dangerous during the daytime. Besides, if you wanna get as much sunlight while you’re here, just do it in the morning. It’s a lot safer than in the middle of the day. 

Though I still have the same unanswered question, “Why are you doing that?” If you're a foreigner and love to do that, let me know why.

Have a good day, people! 💜

[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
