Dream Destinations in 2018

Normally, in the beginning of the year like this, me and the husband would plan ahead (and mostly dream about) places we’ll go and see in the next year. However though, since we’re moving out of the apartment we’ve been living for the past 3 years and a lot of other things… this is what…

2017… where did you go?!

Dear 2017… you’ve gone fast. I mean, seriously it’s been an eventful year. So, what have I done? I am hoping by writing this through I’ll find something meaningful to cheer about this year, and (hopefully) won’t have anything to regret.   Family Well… 2017 has become a special year for me and Pak Dodol…

Tequila Sunrise, Sunset, and Sunburns

So, to Gili Trawangan we went…. there are three famous Gili islands to visit: Gili Trawangan (for party people, apparently), Gili Air (for honeymooners), and Gili Meno (for conservation). Why Gili Trawangan? I was going to go to Gili Air but when I was browsing for places to stay in both Gilis, I fell in love with this villa we ended up staying for our three-day-two-nights escape. How…

Oldest Pub in England: Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem

Flashback to my trip with the Grandparents to Nottingham, if I could tell you something more than the castle and Robinhood, it would be the Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem. The pub claims to be the oldest in England; established in 1189 AD. The earliest part of the current building was built in 1650.  It…

Up and Down the Hill in Matlock

After my last post on Bakewell, still from the same day trip with the father-in-law to Peak District, Derbyshire I am about to write you through Matlock. From Bakewell, we headed to the north for a 20-minute drive to see Matlock, another market town which is however, is likewise beautiful. The place itself is located…

Postcard-perfect Village: Bakewell

Last summer was my third time to England and finally, my dad-in-law and his girlfriend, Charlotte, were able to take a couple of days off to take us out. Dad took us on a day trip to the Peak District of Derbyshire to visit two scenic towns: Bakewell and Matlock. In this post, let me…

One Night in Kuta, Lombok

I had never been to Lombok, and I had seen so many people I know went to Lombok earlier this year and it looks beautiful. Thus, in need of a romantic getaway with the husband, Lombok it was. Our main destination was Gili Trawangan, but since we flew in to Lombok International Airport, so might…

Entering Yayoi Kusama’s World

As I have stated in my previous post, I went on a girl weekend with my best friend Sisca to Singapore. We had no idea what we were going to do when we booked our tickets, but as our departure date approaching… I started to browse through Timeout, Honeycombers, and other weekend guide website and…

Postcard from: Gardens by the Bay

So… where have I been? On the couch with my cats and I am not even joking here, every time I meant to take pictures of beauty products for my blog, the cats always distracted me 🙂 Oh, and in respond to the my first rethorical question in a more literal-factual-and-real answer: I was in Singapore…

Eh…nitip ini, dong!

Sering nggak dengar kalimat diatas kalau mau pergi liburan? Apalagi kalau liburannya ke destinasi kuliner populer misalnya Bali, Medan, atau Jogja? Aku tipe orang yang bisa dibilang jaraaaaang banget nitip, sekali-sekalinya nitip itu karena memang barangnya nggak ada disini dan aku pasti kasih uangnya dimuka karena nggak mau ngeganggu budget liburan orang yang dititipin. Sahabat-sahabat…
