Bali - Jakarta // Photo Diary

7/22/14

Here I am again, failing to keep a promise to myself about the frequency of updating my blog sigh. So, I'll start off the post by telling the big thing first: I'M BACK IN INDONESIA! (since around 3 weeks ago... I know it's been quiet a time) There's nothing like home indeed (esp the ppl, and psstt food! yum). One complaint I seem to be endlessly mumbling about tho: why is it so hot like hell... & not to mention the humidity and the daily blackouts oh god. Moving on —I've been on a family trip to a few domestic places (two trips precisely) since I came home.

Well, hello again, Bali. It's been 9 years, hasn't it?
Pandawa Beach - must go! The beach was so nice even tho I don't know how to differentiate any
Naughty Nuri's ribs - yumz / Bebek Betutu / Breakfast at Rimba / Balinese cuisine - authentic taste!
Tanah Lot
Great dining atmosphere at Jimbaran - Menega Café
Rock Bar - enthusiastically waiting for the sunset while chilling out
the long-awaited sunset - stunning view!
& here's Jakarta:
all good food in my tummy now
Elder sister turned 20 - happy belated birthday! :)
Idk how to describe the taste but they were sooo good - well we waited for 1 hour for these goodness. I want more! :(
The trip was overall nice; esp the chilly weather at Bali - it must be due to the winter season in Australia. And Jakarta, well... loathe the trafficjams, always. But the foods. Yum. (I realized I 'yum' too much but whatever). Anyway, I might ever stated that I was not a fan of beaches, however after my trip ended, I strangely sorta crave for beaches. Good news?

 Stay tuned! I'll try to share the stories slash pics of my second trip soon.

SUMMER

6/23/14

Hi, the summer term is starting already; at least for those who are taking summer classes. For the non-summer-classes-takers, it is summer vacation slash break. I am still hanging around here in Corvallis until June 27th, in a house, with no wifi. My sister has moved out of her place to Eugene due to her school transfer starting in Fall term. Did I mention I moved out from the dorm already? If no, yes, I moved out. I planned on having internet service in September when I come back from Indonesia (4 days counting down to go back!) so that I don't waste any money during those three months going-back-home period. Btw, I am typing this post in the library, acting like I am coping with some serious papers.

So basically, I have been lingering around in my house with no wifi for about a week. How did I survive? Frankly saying, I almost died of boredom. I was mostly daydreaming and staring blankly on the wall for hours. I cooked my meals by myself, although most of the time it was only either pasta or scrambled eggs. I exceeded my cellular data usage plan, of which I have to pay extra $10. I freaked out so much (like many times) seeing bugs either inside or outside my house. One of the reason I loathe summer is because it is bugs' season! :'< Tbh, I am even scared of butterflies or other so-called beautiful insects. I am solemnly praying everyday not to have encounter any kind of insects. Puhleaaaaaase!

A little pic updates:
with my roommate during in the dorm; see you when I see you! :)
past few weeks':
sis' meal / attempt on making rice pudding with M / oysters! <3 / 김밥 / found this goodness in asian market c: / fried rice by M, yum! / 제육 볶음; 맛있다! / DQ's oreo cheesecake, loveee! / 떡볶이
my cooks! can't help but to be a little proud hehehe
At last, it sucks but I really need to keep reminding myself to have low expectations of everything in my life right now. Here's to every abrupt ending in my blog posts. Yep. Bye.

Bitter Lemon

5/26/14

The end of Spring Term is creeping in, and I am just sitting here being astonished how fast life is; cliché, it is. A lot of stuffs has been going on my life right now. It's either me being too stressful over little things (many ppl say I do tho) or life's just really been putting pressure on me. I have been having things slash problems clouding up my mind for a such a long time that I even forget when it actually started. I can write like a super looong list of what things I am stressing over right now, but nope, I will not cross that line. This might sound like one of those cheesy blog entry of a girl who crave for attention, well it's not.

Cheering up the blue mood, here's a few updates of my daily life:
.coping with assignments
.stressing over housing paperworks (I'm being kicked out; moving out real soon!)
.struggling to pack all my stuffs into the luggages; seems impossible...
.attempting to cook more (hopefully will *no fingercrossed HA*)
.deactivated my facebook & twitter accounts and made a new facebook one bcs of some personal reasons - see 'find me' tab on sidebar

I acknowledge that I often abandon this blog, but well... I'll always come back. Besides, I am an active user on instagram, so find me there if you want to! :)

Done two midterms and just finished my economy assignments a while ago; a slight break for my weekend now. I still have a paper to write and another midterm to study for tho, sigh... At least it's next week, so next week's task it is HAHA; typical students' procrastination (me trying to form a solidarity —psst read: excuse).

Above all that, I am now seeking for an off-campus apartment for myself for upcoming Fall term (campus housing contract ends in June!) and well... also attempting to study Korean language. I am zuper eggcited to study Korean language, perhaps because of my recent madness towards Running Man or else idk. Hopefully not just words spoken written.
