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. If I prepare it myself, then I know it's good one.  I don't eat too much sugar, sometimes it is hard to buy one thing outside and has a lot of sugar in it. So cooking it myself will allow me to control the amount of sugar. So I found recipes and I tried to make them. As to my surprise, they taste right! Exactly how they should have tasted. That made me happy

Are you an introvert too?

Sanur

Introverts are yearning for deep talks and always exhausted for small talks. Small talks can be fun, but only when it's not too much. Deep talk is always energizing. I didn't know back then. It was weird for me that I can't jump into society as smoothly as my friends. I can't do small talks with my neighbors. I tend to stay at home and enjoy my own battle in my mind. I felt that people think I am a quiet person. 

When I start to have my own ideas, opinions, and such, I told myself that I am not someone who can't talk. I remember my English teacher gave us the task to find foreigners to have small conversations with. I didn't live in Bali so I can't just randomly bump into foreigners so we did it from the internet. I guess I am addicted to it because I found some great people to discuss with and we're still being friends today.

Don't you worry, introverts make some friends too. Fellow introverts 😂 No, I mean, I have some extrovert friends and we are working hard to understand each other in the beginning. Once you understand how you roll, everything will be fine. Introverts are not lonely, we're just... enjoy our time alone that much compared to extroverts. 

The conversations I have are getting more interesting because obviously, I am not a high school student anymore, life hit you so damn hard, you need some insights from neutral sides about everything. Sometimes we can't see what's in front of us until someone tells us. 

our favorite spot to go, an empty space.

Someone told me that simple is harder than complex. So I understand that my thoughts are pretty complicated, I tend to think about (almost) everything deeply, if I want to let people know what I think about without simplifying those then they won't understand what I mean. Because when I can be too lazy to explain, whatever comes from my mouth would be "Yea whatever, up to you. It's okay, it's not okay"

My brain is so crowded, I was born that way too. This is also the reason why I blog. Blogging helps me to put everything down in its own boxes. Sometimes you'll read something interesting, sometimes you'll read a piece of my personal thought that probably bore you 😝. I feel so overwhelmed when I did nothing. When I have nothing to do then I start to over-thinking. So I always keep my mind busy. It's how I cope with recent situations lately. It's not fun I can say, but I have to. 

I am quite a talker when I meet interesting people. I am a quiet person when I feel they're just talking nonsense. This is not about who's wrong or who's right. It's only about what I prefer to have. 😉

Slowly but sure, I have to make sure that I fit into society. I don't mean that I need to please people, no. I never do that. I just mean, I know where to put myself if I am in the middle of the crowds. This is not so easy task to do. I tried my best to do it until a friend of mine said "I want to be like you. You can always get to know new people easily, you can jump into something smoothly, you don't feel awkward in the middle of people you don't know, you always have something to talk about." That got me thinking actually, "Oh wow, I am working that hard to put myself in a place where I can still enjoy it but not make someone else feel awkward too"

Hey, I don't say you need to follow what society expects you to do or to have, eh? Nah. Just be yourself. Knowing where to stand will help too! 

Of course, after I do all of that, I'll come home exhausting and need to charge my energy all day all night by myself. 😓

Anyway, are you an introvert too? 😎

Cerita Karantina di Hotel

Cerita karantina selanjutnya 2 kali di hotel. Kali ini, semuanya berjalan lebih terkoordinir. List hotel karantina bisa dilihat di sini . Jadi nggak ada lagi drama nggak diladenin karena ina inu. Tinggal pilih hotel, hubungi hotel via WA atau email, kirim dokumen yang diperlukan, lalu kita dapat QR code yang nantinya ditunjukkan ke pihak bandara.  Karantina pertama kali di hotel gw bulan September kalau nggak Oktober 2021 dan bulan Januari 2022. Gw pesen di dua hotel berbeda. Karantina di hotel pertama dapet rejeki cuma 3 hari, jadi biaya yang dikeluarkan juga nggak sebanyak kemaren yang 7 hari.  dipakein gelang rumah sakit, dilepas pas check out. Nah, alurnya secara detail ada yang berubah sedikit tapi secara garis besar masih sama. Begitu datang, urus dokumen ini itu, lalu kita di PCR di lokasi. PCR ini hasilnya didapat dalam waktu 1 dan 2 jam karena ada dua lab yang berbeda. Waktu pertama kali gw karantina, gw harus nunggu hasil di bandara sebelum diangkut ke hotel. Tapi karantina k

Gojek ke bandara juanda

While waiting, jadi mending berbagi sedikit soal gojek. Karena saya adalah pengguna setia gojek, saya pengen cobain ke bandara pake gojek. Awalnya saya kira tidak bisa *itu emang sayanya aja sih yang menduga nggak bisa*, trus tanya temen katanya bisa karena dia sering ke bandara pakai motornya. Nah berarti gojek bisa dong?? Sebelum-sebelumnya kalo naek gojek selalu bayar cash, tapi kali ini pengen cobain top up go pay. Minimum top up 10ribu. Jadi saya cobain deh 30ribu dulu. Eh ternyata lagi ada promo 50% off kalo pake go pay. Haiyaaaaa kenapa ga dari dulu aja ngisi go pay hahaha. Dari kantor ke bandara juanda sekitar 8km. Kantor saya sih daerah rungkut industri. Penasarannn banget ini abang mau lewat mana ya. Tertera di layar 22ribu, tapi karena pakai go pay diskon 50% jadinya tinggal 11ribu. Bayangin tuhh... pake bis damri aja 30ribu hahaha. 11ribu udah nyampe bandara. Biasanya 15ribu ke royal plaza dari kantor haha. Lagi untung. Bagus deh. Nah sepanjang perjalanan, saya mikir ter
