I owe my blog a lot of stories ;; so here's the first to come from last August's Bali trip. We (Keshia has a blog now!) visited the Instagram-worthy Angelita Tea Salon and Patisserie.
To be honest I forget how the cake tasted like so I can't talk much about it. But I hope those baby blue wall and pretty tea set make up for the review haha.
These days I mostly busy enjoying all the free time I have. For 2 weeks I had my laptop repaired (hence the delayed post..) and despite all the hardships I felt during the internet detox (uuugh not really actually, I still have my cellphone hehe) I found more time to sleep, practice my skills, and contemplate on life.
I admit I haven't gotten rid of this internet addiction of mine since, um, 6 years ago. Real hard, I must say, especially with the addition of social media storm coming few years ago.
I'm easily distracted which makes it worse, aaand concerned of what would become of me and my deadlines, I deleted some of the apps from my phone few months ago guess what, my life has become much more peaceful!
I feel like the older I am, the less information of me I want to reveal to people. I don't find it's comfortable with the idea of kaypoh strangers knowing what's really happening in my life (other than blog readers of course thanks for sticking with me huhu). I guess that kind of thinking helps a lot in releasing myself from updating a personal status filled with emotion like, once, every hour which I did a lot in the past :x
Well that leaves Instagram, I think. I'm still struggling in holding the urge to check my feed all the time. The 'OooOoOoh I must share to show people I have a really gooood life!!11!' feel is far more tempting than the urge to finish my to-do list.
But at least instead of checking what people are doing now I spend more time pampering my inner mind over Rumi's poetry, consoling Tumblr post, finding music gems or watching useful (or not...) tutorial
By the way this Tiny Buddha article helps me a lot in dealing with social media negativity. Just in case you need it? :)
