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. "No we did not order this, yet" Apparently the neighbor ordered their service but they got the address wrong. The next day, the same guy came again, brought his empty composting bin f

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. Even weirder that I vividly remember that even now. 

I used to say that I can't live without my sammy (that old samsung laptop) until it stopped working like I wanted due to the ... well... it got to 9 years of usage so he served me well.

Years gone by, I learned to accept the fact that something will be coming and going. Something or someone will be coming and going in and out our lives to simply teach us something. I have my favorite people coming and going in my life. We had great memories together, sometimes bad memories that I keep remembering and trying to take the lessons out of it. 

Sometimes when I think about the great memories that passed, it crossed my mind that "Yes, we had fun together. I had so much fun with them, I learned a lot of important lessons along the way, but the time has come for us to grow apart." Growing apart is not always bad. Of course I sometimes feel that "What would happen if we're still together now? Would I be good influence for them, or bad or the other way around?" We never know. 

But one thing I also learn is sometimes we will reconnect with people who were in our lives. And see if it is gonna be different or the same like it was. Sometimes you find comfort in the stillness that you both have together, but sometimes it can be discomfort too. Some people will try to bring things like it used to be, some will find the changes on someone is too much and bringing discomfort, while some others will connect better with the new you. People can grow apart or grow together towards the same goal. 

Some people love to challenge their own beliefs, their own morals, their own values, until they find that some of them fit them well or need to be changed. Some, will be comfortable enough staying the same and deal with no changes in their lives. 

Well in my opinion, you have to change to be better person. Not the better person than other people but the better person than you were. How can the now-you be the same as the 10-years-you? 

There are things that we can change to be better, at the same time there are things we can't change too. In the end, that's when we learn to accept things as it is. That some people will be coming and going. That they will learn from you, you will learn from them, and move on when it's time.

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

[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
