    Cuando Me Enamoro

    I love reading but when it comes to the Bible, it’s difficult for me to keep a routine reading the word of God daily. Oh, let me correct the sentence. It’s difficult for me to keep a routine reading the Bible from the beginning ’till the end. Honestly, I get lazy after a few days esp when I can’t relate the message to the modern world problem. Therefore, I feel so grateful to Nicky and Pippa Gumbel who created the Bible in One Year app! Now, I’m not a very religious person but I do believe in Him, pray and go to the church. Peace be with me when I…

    Beautiful Budapest, Where I Left My Heart in 2015

    I’ll never forget the joy when I starred at my very first Schengen visa in 2015. After all, it was granted by the German Embassy in Kuala Lumpur with much effort! That year, I embarked on my first Europe trip and lost my heart to Budapest. The inspiration to write this post came after I booked my 2020 Balkan trip. Due to my financial limitation, I never want to return to the same country until I travelled to all of the countries in the world. But, my beloved city turns out to be on the list! When you visit Budapest, you’ll understand why it’s easy to fall in love. The…

    Romeo, Juliet & the Most Opportunist City

    “Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?” Imagine Juliet standing on the balcony in a white dress, waiting for the love of her life… But in reality, they’re not real – including the balcony! I remember watching Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes as the 1996 version of Romeo & Juliet. The movie is so captivating and I still have clear picture of some sequences although I only watch it once. If you’re a fan of the Shakespeare’s love story, you should include Verona in your bucket list. The small city in Northern Italy has been a popular destination among hopeless romantics and Shakespeare’s fans as it’s the home of the lovebirds.…

    I’m Not Snobbish, Here’s Why I Avoid Jakarta

    If you think by earning Ringgit you’ll live like kings/queens in Jakarta, you’re wrong. On top of the surprise, be prepared to sit for hours in the car thanks to the traffic jam. My aunties and uncles often ask me why I seldom return home, don’t I miss the food and so on. As someone who has only 14 days annual leave, I choose my travel destination wisely and the capital city of Indonesia is, to be honest, a place I avoid. Don’t get me wrong. I’m from Jakarta and with the statement above, I hope you won’t think I’m snobbish. I just prefer to use my annual leave and…
