Life Update: July 2018

I've been pretty busy for the past month, it's driving me crazy. Here's a summary of the things I did:

My brother and a few of my cousins went to Bali during their summer holiday. They stayed at a hostel 7 minutes away from my place, by bike. I was pretty busy at that time, but I made time and was able to spend most days exploring parts of the island with them. We went to Batubolong and explored the whole street, which included The Love Anchor market, Old Man’s weekend market, Batubolong Beach, Warung Bu Mi and Crate Cafe. It was pretty exciting because I rarely explore North Kuta. We went swimming in the beach at 5 pm. The next day we rented a car and went to Hidden Canyon for a river trekking adventure. The trail took around 2 hours to finish, but it was all super worth it because of the beautiful rocking sceneries. We went to Ubud for lunch, visited a temple, and ended the day by eating Massimo Gelato at Sanur. The next day I had to go do some uni work, but all of us went out to get grilled fish for dinner at Kedonganan Fish Market. They flew back to Jakarta the next day.

The Week After

During the week after Eid, I spent the days lingering around Jakarta, here and there. The currently constructed infrastructure around Jakarta is blocking some streets, making it even more traffic-y. But since it was Eid and everyone went back to their home town, Jakarta's traffic was beautiful. If only Jakarta will always be this empty.

I know Jakarta isn't everyone's ideal location for a holiday, but it can be if you know where to look.

Yayoi Kusama

A few days after I arrived in Jakarta, I went to Yayoi Kusama's Life is the Heart of a Rainbow exhibition at Museum MACAN. You can say that Museum MACAN is relatively new, but is definitely making its way up to the top by bringing Kusama's artworks to Jakarta. The only thing I knew about Kusama was her passion in polkadots. Polkadots, polkadots, polkadots, everywhere. So on June 12th, my brother and I decided to visit Kusama's exhibition and see her polkadots of artworks.

Being a Busybee

At this time last year, my seniors told me that semester 6 was boring. A non-busy, lack-of-tasks kind of semester. Fast forward to today, me as a semester 6 student, cringing to fact that two weeks ago I had over 10 tasks due by end of May.

An addition to the uni busyness, I was part of a faculty organization and a community, as well as an assistant coach in swimming. My semester 6 was a race against time.

A thought today:

The more often people get to see each other, the less appreciative they are of that person. So it's okay to be a part some time. And soon when reunited, they'll be able to appreciate the other person even more. 

I guess that's how I'm feeling lately.

In The Sun: Perth 2017

I created a short video on the time I was in Perth, back in 2017. Here's the earlier post of the trip.
