Djajanti House, Penginapan Rasa Rumah Sendiri di Jantung Kota Semarang

Libur lebaran jadi momen yang pas untuk menghabiskan waktu bersama keluarga, begitu pun dengan saya dan suami. Di sela-sela libur lebaran kemarin, saya dan suami sempat staycation sebentar di Kota Semarang. Iya di SEMARANG aja karena minggu terakhir ramadhan sampai lebaran hari pertama ada di mertua, jadi lebaran hari kedua giliran sama keluarga di Semarang.

Jadi, penginapan yang akan saya review kali ini memang bukan penginapan yang terbilang baru di Semarang, tapi saya baru sempat nyobain nyh. Dari komen-komen di media sosial ketika beberapa waktu lalu saya posting foto soal penginapan ini juga ternyata banyak yang belum tahu. Pas deh buat direview barangkali ada yang tertarik dan mau coba juga kan ya.

Selamat datang di Djajanti House!

Gag tahu kenapa makin ke sini saya makin suka dengan hotel yang unik dan berkarakter gitu. Gag harus mewah syh buat tempat menginap, tapi yang bisa menawarkan user experience yang beda yang lebih menarik buat saya. Alhasil terpilihlah Djajanti House ini buat dicoba. Sayang sekali saya sampai di Semarang ketika sudah petang, jadi gag sempat foto suasana kamar saat masih rapi deh. Begitu sampai kamar lihat kasur langsung rebahin badan dan barang-barang soalnya.

Holika Holika Aloe 99% Soothing Gel Review

Halo!

Kali ini saya lagi pengen nulis yang ringan-ringan aja deh. Lama juga gag nulis soal produk kecantikan. Ya…secara saya bukan beauty blogger juga, cuma seneng berbagi info barangkali ada yang membutuhkan. Soal make up saya memang gag terlalu tertarik, tapi kalo soal skin care saya tertarik banget. Untuk saya pribadi, skin care lebih sering saya pakai syh daripada make up. Bahkan kerja pun saya jarang pake make up kecuali ada meeting atau ketemu orang penting. Cukup pake sunscreen kadang udah lebih dari cukup buat saya. Hahaha…kebangetan gag syh???

If you follow Korean trends in both beauty and fashion (even K-pop), you’ll find that Aloe Vera gel is a very popular product used by celebrities, gurus and normal people alike. The most famous one among all the aloe vera gels in the market would be Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% (NR). Tapi….saya gag bakal bahas si NR ini, karena saya sudah menemukan aloe vera gel yang lebiiiiih cocok buat saya, yaitu HOLIKA HOLIKA ALOE 99% SOOTHING GEL ! Telat banget gag syh baru ngereview sekarang padahal boomingnya dari kemarin-kemarin?! Sebenarnya sengaja syh baru ngereview sekarang karena saya pengen bandingin beberapa produk dulu.

Ada yang udah pernah coba Holika Holika Aloe 99% Soothing Gel?

Kenapa syh saya lebih memilih si Holika Holika Aloe 99% Soothing Gel? Hmmm….ini pendapat pribadi saja ya, semua dikembalikan ke orang masing-masing.

Young at Heart

Over the weekend (31th March – 1st April) my teammates and I, took part in the IFS Bandung Open 2018 (National Inline Freestyle Championship).  We were all representing the Inline Skate Semarang. The competition took place in Saparua Park & Sports Center, Bandung. There were teams from all of Indonesia taking part; there were teams from Lampung, Bengkulu, West Java, East Java, DIY Yogyakarta, DKI Jakarta, Palembang, and many more. We won some second places and third place. I was the eldest in senior women category to compete. Overall, I had a wonderful weekend. Enough, I don’t want to talk about skating, let’s talk about ‘age’ since I was the eldest in my category.

Happiness Boosts

Life is full of craziness. So amidst the craziness, take a little time to give yourself a happiness boost. ♥

—–

1. Work out. I know that it sounds counterproductive, but trust me- it will make you feel better once you get past the exhaustion. And remember, to quote the wonderful Elle Woods- “Exercise releases endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people don’t kill their husbands.” Hahaha…. Exercise, folks. Give your self-control a boost.

2. Write. Anything you want- just write. Write a journal entry, a poem, even an Instagram caption. Just get some words off your chest. You’ll feel lighter. Continue reading

Lately

Life is crazy, y’all.

Almost every time that I talk to someone, the conversation goes something like this-

“Hey! How are you?”

“TIRED”.

The fact that I haven’t posted here in 22 days is enough to tell you that life is starting to swallow me a bit.

I feel like I haven’t been super active here in the blogging world lately, and although you may know a bit about what I’ve been up to lately if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (there’s some shameless self-promo for ya), I thought that I’d do a little wrap-up here on the blog of what life’s been looking like lately. ♥

#BunTingStory: I Learned to Ask These Three Questions

One of the areas I truly value in my relationships with my hubby is our open communication. Even in those early dating years, we would talk for hours. We talked about our careers, our dreams, our love of music, our relationship with God and so much more. I was always amazed that we could find so much to discuss. It was then we agreed to be willing to be transparent with each other.

Years later, this continues to be one of the strongest areas in our marriage. Now, don’t misunderstand me. Although I am thankful we can talk so freely with each other; sometimes I didn’t want open communication. I didn’t want to hear what he has to say. Because to talk about and through our issues means dealing with some messy and uncomfortable areas. It means dealing with my feelings of anger because he can’t or won’t agree with my point of view. Yet, being willing to talk also meant working toward healing and growth. Meaningful communication meant working toward a healthier version of us.

Even though we talked about a lot, I realized there were a lot of assumptions I made regarding what my hubby thought, experienced, and needed. From this realization, I learned to ask these three questions. Continue reading

Adult Life: My Work and Everything in Between

Today I just wanted to write about work and some essential down time. I absolutely love my job, but technically it falls under the ‘maintenance and assurance’ sector for the telecommunication company and well, we all know that means  our busiest sector and I feel like I spend all my time at work but this means it’s even more important for me to make some time for myself.

I work at least 51 hours a week, so obviously for me, I will never find balance in terms of hours spent, but that’s a common problem, so for me it’s more about how I’m feeling and what makes me happy. I’m so lucky that I enjoy what I do, not everyone has that luxury, but having some time to unwind is key to keeping myself sane. Continue reading

On The Way

It’s so good to be back!

 

I am sorry guys for being inactive these days. Sometimes I feel like my life is a crazy whirlwind and I’m flying through the centre of it.

 

I’m a perfectionist, though not a very perfect one. I have standards and high expectations for myself in most areas of my life, and while they instigate action and are a source of motivation, they somehow tell me that I’ll never be happy until I’ve reached those goals. I must be in a state of constant unrest until I have completed the ten thousand hours, achieved a certain grade, or am earning a certain amount. My soul can never relax or be at peace because my surroundings are not the impeccable picture of my highest desires. Continue reading

Makabana Creative Space & Coffee: Work-Chill Out-Collaborate-Connect-Have A Coffee!


In modern times the café for some people is also a place of work, either in solitude, or in a practice that is becoming more common in cities— co-working — where people, often independent, get together to work in the same space as others. There are various forms of co-working and co-working spaces, from dedicated spaces that can be rented by people wishing to co-work aligned to a particular industry, to more informal arrangements such as meet-ups for freelancers organized in cafés via social media.

For those that don’t know what co-working the simplest explanation might be…
“the use of an office or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge.” Continue reading
