Reaching Semarang

DSC_0341 DSC_0371 DSC_0342
Busy morning!
That night, I slept over at friend's house and woke up early to catch the morning train. I honestly felt anxious of the thought that I'd miss the train because usually travelling with parents, if I oversleep there will always be someone who does the job waking me up from dreaming.
Countless of what ifs ran through my mind (what if we lost our way/our belongings got stolen/us girls got scammed?) and I remember kept assuring myself there is the fun of travelling-to let yourself go into the unknown and see how many spontaneous itinerary changes you can do to save your holiday (I'm a Perceiving type anyway), but still...
anyway at the end of the trip, turned out every scenario of misfortune only existed in this overthinker mind

It was my first long train ride, and the moment I saw the view from the window, I was sure it wouldn't be the last. Alongside watching scenery and play with our phones, 80% all we did was sleeping hahah no other entertainment 'cause the TV in front of us played this dance movie repeatedly for 8 hours straight (!!!)
Oh, and the train has charging socket available at every seat row, woohoo!

Arrived at last. Semarang's Tawang station looked historical, and it really is!
After dropped our luggages at the hotel we'd stay in the next 3 days, we had lunch at Chinatown area.
Then meeting the son of my tutor; the childhood friend of mine who has painstakingly come from Ambarawa, only to go back to Ambarawa again bringing 2 lost children haha.
By the time we arrived at our Ambarawa guest house, it was already evening. We were really exhausted from the 2 hour bus ride (the bus has natural wind-powered air conditioner huhu) + whole day public transportation travel and rushed to the bathroom after. I think it was one of the greatest shower I've ever had!

Life Lately #2

DSC_5033DSC_5519
1 2 as a consolation for my crumbling body and mind this harsh week, yesterday I left class early with few friends to find refreshments. While strolling around the shady park we realized that we were surrounded by lizards (they seem to breed a whole generation there...), walked off in a rush from the area and found this koi pond

3 4 after years of not visiting game centre, I finally did; only to meet these kiasu gamers who thought their family own the place so they could monopolize a particular machine and spend a handful tens of thousands Rupiah for building my claw machine maneuver skill. Had enough with being scammed by rigged machines after dozens of tries, at last I won my first UFO catcher plushie. Perfectionist never gave up! (¬‿¬)

9 10 I...'m sort of, being in a position which requires me to lead people. And with this much storm (still) going in my life, to lead myself alone is already an agony, let alone others.
Well I realize whining or cutting isn't going to bring me any improvement or lessen my responsibility so lately I've been absorbing myself in watercolor painting. The idea of pouring my emotion into transluscent colors soothes me.
It's pretty hard to maintain the practice frequency because of works and whatnot. But slow progress is a progress. yeah?

11 12 13 14 another lunch date ended by taking the newly-bought balloon a visit to the book store

Last week a close family member passed away. It upset me badly that I couldn't be present during her last hour, neither I could make it to see her face for the last time.
Grief made the last 6 days spent with pretending passed in slow motion. Last night I distanced myself from others (gosh how I hate LINE chat), ate to my heart content, and watched The Changeling.

Today I feel a bit better. :)

It seems as if it's meant to be

Hello! How I miss filling on this blank post.
With assignments piling up and another title aside from regular student to hold, all these months I've been missing in action surely is one of my busiest moment in life. Blogging seems not to be on my priority list right now (oh how I want to!) because I have bigger responsibilities in line ( ᐛ )و but no worries, all things including my mind seem to be in place.
Maybe a few short updates in the future won't hurt will it?
See you when I see you~! (hahah not even have the gut to make any blog post promise)

On a day when the wind is perfect,
the sail just needs to open and
the world is full of beauty.

Today is such a day

If the sunlight covers us, it’ll melt

Almost a year (!) ago I visited this rooftop bar who provided beautiful tone for my pictures,
not a big fan of lounge bar or beach club and such (which evolves well in Bali I know), but after a visit I find myself enjoying the atmosphere when it's not crowded. Plus with the view, what can I say more?

Funny tidbits (bananalace do you remember this?) before finally we decided to go upstairs, we were waiting at the hotel lobby, taking obligatory touristy photo until a guy walked closer and offered to help us with the photo-taking, added by a self-proclaimed description by his friend that he was a Nikon photographer.
I handed my Nikon dslr to him, followed by a question where the flash button is...(ノ_<。)
After few snaps, us girls were running out of poses so we turned to each other asking for ideas. That's when the guy's friend shouted to him, "Indonesia juga, bro!" (Indonesians too, bro!) meaning they thought we were foreigners all along...as expected after another shot those not-so-good Samaritans left with red face and probably broken heart hahaha;

Untitled-2
but at least we got pretty picture of us three.
Thanks, Nikon photographer!
