Sustainable Way to "Dump" our Waste

Sticker from eco-bali recycling October is funny month. We have this crisis of burning landfield in Bali, and they haven't pick up my trash for 2 months. Probably over two months now. We're like "Okay it's time to swap to the sustainable options" Yea we've been thinking about composting, but I do not know where to start. Because, you know, when you did it wrong it can be stinky and worm-y and not working out well. Turns out, they have composting company that provide the bin, the pickup, and even got the compost back monthly or per 6 months. I did not know that but of course my husband found it and planned to sign up for it.  The week where we had that plan on mind, suddenly in the morning there was a guy from this company came to our house delivering the composting bin.

I Have Found the Joy of Cooking

Coming and Going

Be it something or someone, they will be coming and going, in and out your life. I believe that something/someone has their own period to be in your life.  I used to be so attached to something, rarely to someone though. I remember the first time I felt that I lost something important in my life was when I had my favorite hair tie with me. It was part of the dress that I had, it was blue, nice dress. I loved it. That happened when I was around 10 I think. I had that hair tie on, then took it off when I took shower after beach day.  When I take it off, I told myself to remember to take it back with me. But of course I forgot it, I remembered that I left it when I was already in my grandma's house. I was so sad because it was my favorite.
