If Money Wasn't The Problem, What Would You Do?

In this extraordinary life, I would be a teacher still.  Helping people to understand even some little things to make them feel worthy and understand themselves better. It seems that teaching has become a calling for me. Not about teaching such specific subject like mathematics or so, but more like... I like to give new perspectives for people, and having them saying "Oh.... I see..." is satisfying for me. Of course, by teaching I can learn so many new perspectives from different people too. It's like the more I teach the more I learn, and that is so true. Maybe more like a guide. I like giving guidance to people who needs it. No, I don't like giving unsolicited guiding. I like to guide people who wants to be guided. I'd teach them how to love, love themselves first. Yea sure when we are talking about things, they would say "do useful things like engineering, plumbing, this and that" but they tend to forget that we need some balance in life. Not saying t

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?

Ujian hari senin

Kejadian ini terjadi tepat senin minggu lalu. Baru kali itu aku merasa 'WOW.. ini senin yeay'. Karena biasanya 'haduhh udah senen lagi'. Kebayang kan kalo seneng begitu dihari senen menyambut pagi dan hari itu rasanya langka banget. Otomatis pengennya hari itu berlangsung indah. Jam setengah 9 pagi, seperti biasa ke pantry ambil minum bareng sama temen sebangku. Dia bikin teh, aku nyuci botol sekalian ngisi dong. Seperti biasa juga, kadang aku males sih nyuci botol dengan ritual lengkapnya, akhirnya cuman bilas pake air panas. Ya mungkin nggak sampe 50 ml juga. Dikit banget deh. Temen juga selalu bersihin gitu gelasnya pake air panas. Pic source is here Eh lakok lakok... si bapak pantry yang serem itu tiba-tiba bilang 'Gak bisa ya gak nyuci botol pake air panas? Tiap sore itu banyak komplain gara-gara airnya abis'. Yakaliii air abis tinggal isi aja, ibu yang dulu aja nggak pernah ada komplain. Ya aku bilang lah ini cuman dikit, lagian yang ngelakuin ini

Jumat ceria

Hari ini memang bukan hari jumat, tapi cuman mau bilang aja sih kalo hari yang paling aku tunggu-tunggu itu hari jumat. Why?   Karena jumat itu selalu ceria, kalopun ada meeting besar pasti di hari jumat dan banyak cemilan, orang-orang pada berangkat sholat jumat, yang nasrani juga mengikuti misa di kantor, bisa pake baju bebas dan bebas berekspresi sepuas-puasnya, dan..... bisa video call sepuasnyaaaaaa kapanpun karena dia libur kerja 😍😍 gambarnya lucu 😁  taken from internet

[Piknik] Prambanan lagi

Salah satu pesona Jawa Tengah adalah Candi Prambanan. Saya sudah 3 kali berkunjung ke situs warisan dunia ini. Candi yang terletak di perbatasan Jawa Tengah dan jogja ini selalu menimbulkan kesan mistis bagi saya. Terletak tak jauh dari jalan raya, sehingga mengunjunginya pun sangat mudah. Berbeda dengan Candi Borobudur yang letaknya sangat jauh dari jalan raya besar.  Ok, menurut saya ada 3 cara menuju candi ini. Menggunakan bus transjogja, taksi, dan kendaraan pribadi. Bagi yang menggunakan transjogja, saya pernah menggunakannya berangkat dari daerah kampus UNY, daerah Depok Sleman. 1 kali transit, 2 kali berganti bus. Dengan harga transjogja yang kala itu, 2014, seharga 3500 rupiah. Tapi sampai saat ini masih sama harganya, menurut info dari teman. Lokasi shelter bis berada agak jauh dari pintu masuk lokasi candi, mungkin kira-kira 500meter sampai 1kilometer. Kalau jalan, menghabiskan waktu sekitar 15-20menit. Bisa juga naik becak untuk opsi yang lain. Lagi-lagi, jangan lupa men
