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

Let's Spend 50K Rupiah in Sanur!

Accidentally normal moment

Let's imagine you're going to Sanur with me, and you have only 50K Rupiah to spend there. What would you do? Is 50K enough for that? 50K rupiah is about hmmm $3-$4 I guess.

Well... let's find out! 


Alright, since I drive my own scooter, so I need to spend 2K for parking fee at the beach. 2K is nothing. Then I'll leave my scooter and start to wander around the beach. 

Low-profile Sanur is actually a lovely place to spend some time in. It may not be something fancy or hype like beach clubs in Canggu area, but... at least you'll spend way less here lol. 

Alright, shall we start from the 5K lumpiyang for a simple breakfast? This is a real gem. It tastes better in the morning because it still piping hot! The sellers are everywhere. They usually start to sell around 7am. They come from many places, not only from Sanur. Some from Karangasem, some from Gianyar. Pretty far. Oh btw, there are also some sellers who come every afternoon so it's also still good in the afternoon. You just need to know which one is which.

The product and the seller

If you're still hungry with that small portion of morning snack, then let's get nasi jinggo for 5K! This one is rice with a mix of chicken shred (or squid or beef or pork, your choice), noodles, tempe tahu, egg, serundeng, sambal. It's actually anything they want to include in that small pack of rice. Don't imagine this as a very big portion of rice. No no, it will be very small but enough to help you survive the morning. How to eat this? Mix them all! 


Oh btw, they usually sell something small like snack-one-bite I'd say. Price? Only 1K. Of course, you won't be completely full, but it's enough to keep you away from getting hangry. [Important].

The mini sandwich is 5K with a real piece of chicken. Not a nugget or fake chicken.

Are you thirsty yet? Let's get some hot tea or coffee for 5K, or if you want a bottle of water then it will be the same price.


Alright... what do you want to do next? You're probably not feeling grumpy anymore since you have eaten. So what about... strolling the Sanur area by renting a bicycle for 15K? This is the price per hour. Well actually, you still can ask for a cheaper price if you rent for two or three hours. Usually 25K/two hours. Well... your call.


Or if you wanna chill in a swimming pool, sure you can pay for 15K to swim in a swimming pool. Should we just swim on the beach instead? Then it's free! Or maybe let's rent some kayak for 15K too!

 

Do we still have some money left? 

My possible stuff to do in the morning there would be buying lumpiyang, nasi jinggo, a cup of tea, renting a bike then relaxing, sitting by the beach. In that case, I would spend only 30K. Yea I am a lazy person who loves to enjoy her day sitting for hours by the beach and just... relaxing. Grounding.

What would be your choice?

Tips Membeli Buku

Ada duitnya wkwkw! Ya maksud gw, harga buku di Indonesia bisa dibilang nggak murah terutama buku yang berbahasa asli misalnya Bahasa Inggris. Buku cetakan versi asli biasanya harganya bisa 2 kali harga buku terjemahannya, atau dua-tiga kali harga e-book. Ini e-book yang original ya, bukan yang bajakan. Kayak semacem beli di kindle atau books-nya google itu.  Kadang emang sering pengen beli fisik bukunya tapi kok harganya sampe 300ribu banget, sedangkan hasrat ingin membaca ini tinggi sekali. Nah, kalau skenario yang begini yang terjadi (dan paling sering), gw biasanya cek toko buku bekas dulu. Di Bali ada beberapa toko buku bekas yang reliable , meskipun koleksinya kita nggak akan tau ya karena ya random juga. Satu di Sanur, satu di Ubud.  Ini karena kapan hari gw udah beli bukunya Madeline yang Song of Achilles di Periplus, 200ribuan. Lalu nemuin bekasnya dengan sampul yang gw mau, cuma 25ribu. Jadi gw udah beli yang baru, beberapa hari kemudian gw ke toko buku bekas dan nemu itu. Set

Mendaftar Pelatihan di Prakerja

Sanur Jadi dulu program ini diluncurkan pemerintah untuk kasih insentif orang yang di PHK atau tidak bekerja pas pandemi. Jadi ya gw tentu saja nggak punya hak tho. Sebagai orang yang nggak punya hak, ya gw nggak ikutan lah. Trus temen gw beberapa bulan lalu bilang, ikut aja soalnya ini buat yg kerja yg mau nunjang skill juga lho.  "Hah masa sih?" Yaudah pas liat oh ya bener juga, jadi gw daftar. Daftar pertama di gelombang 20 nggak lolos. Trus ya udah patah hati dah lah gausah daftar. Eh tiba-tiba minggu lalu temen gw lolos gelombang berapa gitu, lalu bilang kalau gelombang 29 udah buka. Yaudah deh ikutan aja. Eh lolos dong. Pembukaan gelombang ini termasuk cepet. Hampir tiap minggu selalu ada gelombang baru yang dibuka. Jadi daftar di gelombangnya itu selama 3 harian, pengumumannya 3 hari kemudian, lalu 3 hari kemudian udah bukaan baru. Bener-bener cepet banget. Nah temen gw yang lagi S2 nggak bisa ikutan padahal dia juga kerja sebagai pengajar. Alasannya KTP sudah terdafta
