Japan Travel Journal 03: Osaka

Image
Setelah kemarin puas banget di Disneysea, hari ini kami mau berpetualang di kota lain. And as easy as you guys has guessed already, yes we're going to Osaka!   
Kami memutuskan untuk cukup satu hari aja di Osaka. Sayang banget yah cuman sehari di Osaka. Karena kami cuman punya waktu 9 hari di Jepang, dan kali ini ingin lebih lama di Tokyo. Kapan-kapan, kalau ada kesempatan lagi, mau direct flight Jakarta-Osaka. 
So here we're gonna take you with us to explore another beautiful place in Japan!

Japan Travel Journal 02: Tokyo Disneysea

Image
Setelah sehari kemarin agak nggak bertenaga, hari ini siap tempur ke tempat paling bahagia di bumi (kok aneh ya kalau bahasa Indonesia hahaha). 
Salah satu kenyamanan pergi jalan-jalan sendiri bukan berarti molor sampai kebablasan ya. Waktunya jadi lebih santai dan fleksibel aja. Because today we're so much ready for Disney trip dan nggak mau kesiangan sampai di sana, kami bangun agak pagi, supaya bisa tiba di Disney resort sekitar pukul sepuluh.

Japan Travel Journal 01: Shibuya and Harajuku

Image
I was planning to make this journal on the blog right before we arrived in Tokyo (yes, I was too excited!), simply because years later I can look back how we spent good times here in Japan. One of the greatest experiences in life! 
Karena judulnya travel journal, jadi kalian nggak akan menemukan yang namanya travel guide, travel tips (cara menyusun itinerary, cara apply visa) dan sebagainya. Sebelum berangkat ke Jepang, aku sendiri nemu banyak banget hasil googling pembahasan lengkap mengenai hal-hal itu. Dan memang jalan-jalan ke Jepang udah lumayan hits ya dari dua tahun yang lalu, apalagi sejak disahkannya free entrance visa dengan e-passport. Aku ini termasuk telat banget. Cuman telat nggak telat, yang penting super happy bisa main ke negara sakura ini. 
Langsung aja cus, kita bahas dari hari pertama kami sampai di Tokyo. Mundur dikit pas di hari keberangkatan aja deh.

Hello everyone! 

Sorry been away for too long, we just came back from an unforgettable week!

Eat in Bali: Seniman Coffee Studio and Naughty Nuri's

Image
We went to Ubud again last week! Rencana ke Ubud kali ini cukup spontan. Sepulang dari Jakarta bareng papa dan Andreas (yeay!), mama tiba-tiba ngajakin ke Ubud untuk spa. Kayaknya kalau udah pernah ngerasain spa enak di Bali, pasti ketagihan untuk kedua kali, ini berlaku untuk my mama. Mama nemu satu tempat spa enak dan not pricey at all (katanya 2 jam dua ratusan ribu ajah) di Ubud, namanya Putri Bali. Lokasinya sederetan, bahkan sebelahan dengan Naughty Nuri's. Sesuai post title, bisa ditebak lah ya, post kali ini mau bahas apa? :D
Let's talk about another place before we had amazing pork ribs for late lunch that day. Abis drop papa dan mama tersayang for having their nice spa-time, me, Andreas and my little brother decided to go some place for coffee or snack, while we were waiting my parents. Sempet bingung banget mau ke mana, soalnya kita nggak begitu familiar dengan jalanan Ubud, walaupun udah beberapa kali ke sana. Udah gitu kita bawa mobil, jalan raya Ubud paling ribet…

Beauty Love: Tips On Getting Ultimate Summer Glow

Image
Summer is winding down, but I'm sure some of us are still looking forward for those days where we can spend time at the beach or just having a good time at outdoors. Today I would like to share my most easy and simple tips for getting a summer glow, and of course we stay on low budget. Here they are:

Super Foods

 Grapes  If people have an apple for their on-the-go fruit, I have grapes. I don't really like the other berries like strawberry or blueberry, but I love grapes. If you want to eat it in different way, you can mix grapes with plain yogurt. The grapes give some flavors when you eat them together. It's my perfect healthy snacks, it's light, healthy, less calories, you have no worries!

Lemons Who doesn't love lemons? It doesn't only give a crisp taste for some dishes (especially Chinese dishes, you know, sweet and sour lemon pork? *drooling*), lemons are rich source of vitamin C, which is in my case, my body needs more for it. Most of the time, I just cut …

Do You Have Enough For Today?

I love reading Bible. If I could say this, Bible could be my most favorite book in this world. I'm not kidding. Sometimes the words in it are confusing, but most of the time, the words make sense to me. 
For this whole month, I have been reading Proverbs again and finished it this morning. The author of Proverbs book should be given a Nobel for his powerful wisdoms. I found many times of life quotes on the internet, has taken from Proverbs book. It means, the words are applicable in our daily life. 
Here's one of my favorite verse from the book and has became my daily prayer in the morning. This verse below is in Easy-to-read version.
"Don't let me tell lies. And don't make me too rich or too poor- give me only enough food for each day.
If I have too much, I might deny I need You, Lord. But if I'm too poor, I might steal and bring shame to the name of my God."  -Proverbs 30:8-9
If there's only one first problem in my life (I…

Brought Back From The Old Hometown

Image
I was back to Jakarta weeks ago and I haven't shared any pictures from the town yet. Despite some wedding stuffs to deal with, I had so much great times with some dear friends too. I couldn't be more blessed knowing that God has sent these people for me.
I would like to snap more pictures for posting in this blog, but the other side, I didn't want to be overly busy taking pictures with camera, because I just wanted to enjoy every minutes and "be there". So, I just snapped everything quickly without any attemps to take better shoots.
I leave a description for each pictures below. Some faces who made appearance here, maybe they belong to some people that you guys already familiar with ((: 

(1) You probably know her already, yes... meet my childhood bestfriend, aka the future maid of honor, Kina! It was almost impossible to arrange our meet-up schedule, every time I was in town. This time, we finally got each other! We grabbed Japanese lunch together with Andrea…

Monday Favorites #5

Blue-ish scene at Sanur I snapped when we missed our speedboat off to Nusa Penida last month *sobs*
(1) "A Month Without Coffee" by Zen Habits Since last week, when my brother was off for a week from his duties at hospital, everytime he found out me drinking coffee while I was working, he started to give me speech about why-drinking-coffee-everyday-is-not-good-for-health. I give my defense from articles that I've read but I think it's useless since I was talking with a doctor-wannabe, right? But I guess he's right, and I hope this report by Leo from Zenhabits, helps me commit to stop drinking too much coffee. Start tomorrow. *glancing to my cup of coffee this morning*
(2) "The Top 4 Cities to Get A Cup of Coffee" by Nerd Wallet (Levo.com) While I should stop drinking coffee, I think this article is amazing. I always wonder how typical Americans have their coffee-break in a fancy coffee shop. I always think it must be cool. 
(3) "12 Rookie Decorat…

Think About This And That

Image
A: "What are you planning today?"  J: "Hmm nothing much. I want to blog, still looking for inspirations." A: "What are you thinking lately?" J: "A lot. Hahaha." 
So, here we go. I just make a list about things I'm thinking about lately. Please don't bother my thoughts.
1. Recently I met people who often ask me about what I do for living, and when they found out I don't do 9 to 5 job, they are quite surprised. It's not like a 'good surprise', I believe. I was more like 'jobless' for them just because then. I could read their mind, somehow. When they 'try' to make conversation to know more about what I really do and to convince me that I 'should' do other job for living, and what I'm doing right now is not enough, blah and blah, this question came up: what's wrong with things that I do?  

Sometimes I just think people care way too much about other people lives. They think they know the bes…

Music Love: PARTY - Girls' Generation (SNSD)

Totally my favorite summer (holiday) jam for whole month! The song lyrics describes perfectly how we feel (and crave some more!) about summer break, right? Let me know if you love this song as I do. Cheers!

Eat in Bali: Home Mate

Image
We just finished our workout and decided to have some nice breakfast that day. Live in Bali for almost two years, I rarely visit some places that people has mentioned alot on Instagram, such as little cute cafes or restaurants. I live not so far from Seminyak area--where popular cafes or restaurants located and most people talk about it, so we decided to make a visit there. Thanks to my random-search on Instagram, I found this cute place called HOME MATE from fellow blogger, Rosalinda Tjioe.

It just a little tiny cafe as I expected. When you enter the place, it feels like you're entering someone's kitchen at home. I suddenly smell fresh fluffy baked pancakes and strong brewed coffee like what my dad always does every morning, homey. 


We ordered "breakfast for two" menu that they offer (Rp150,000, ex tax), it's pretty affordable since it just two of us. "Breakfast for two" serves three kinds of meals (toast, eggs, pancakes) and beverages (coffee/tea). To…

Pantai Batu Bolong, Canggu

Image
Nggak tau kenapa, holiday season tahun ini seru banget! Liat feed Instagram dan Path para teman juga seruuu. Rame-rame nge-post#summerholiday, #familytrip #beachtime, pokoknya everything about summer holiday. Walaupun aku nggak bener-bener liburan (soalnya tinggal di Bali tuh every day is holidayyyy *truestory*), tapi aku tetap kosongin satu-dua hari untuk full dayjalan-jalan ke tempat yang belum aku pernah kunjungi.
Kali ini, aku dan Andreas pengen coba explore ke daerah Canggu. All I know about Canggu itu suasanannya tenang, adem, banyak kafe kecil yang lucu, dan hidden beach. Kami nggak sempat explore sampai gimana banget sih, soalnya waktu itu bawa mobil, jadi agak ribet kalau mau parkir, apalagi jalanan di Canggu lumayan kecil, kebanyakan jalan tembus lewat gang kecil.
After we had our nice breakfast at Home Mate, kami langsung capcus ke destinasi yang udah di-search Andreas yaitu, Pantai Batu Bolong. Liat gambar di Google, pantai ini cantikkk banget! Di tengah pantainya, ada k…

Bali Pulina Agro Tourism

Image
Just arrived from our excited holiday plan and decided to post this as soon as possible! This morning we headed to Ubud, for visiting Luwak coffee plantation. Pertama kali tau tempat ini dari postingan blog-nya Sonia Eryka, she mentioned a place that we can see plantation of Luwak coffee and tasting different flavors of coffee, that sounds nice already! So here we go for our first experience in Bali Pulina Agro Tourism!
Jujur banget nih, salah satu alasan aku ke Pulina, is because this place is kinda popular on Instagram. Aku coba search pake hashtags #balipulina, #balipulinaagrowisata, dan hasilnya banyak banget foto kece di tkp tersebut! Aku pernah baca di majalah Cleo, mereka melakukan survei terhadap 100 responden wanita soal update liburan di medsos, ada 57% responden ingin mengunjungi tempat liburan yang sedang populer di media sosial. So, aku fixed korban medsos banget yaaa, hahaha.
Tadinya aku kira Pulina ini semacam agro wisata pada umumnya, masuk nggak bayar dan bisa coba l…
