#BunTingStory: Why We Didn’t Go On Our Honeymoon After Our Wedding

16-10-03-14-11-17-305_deco-01

In our first week, we didn’t fly off to the honeymoon. Hangus deh hotel dan tetek bengeknya yang udah dibooking online jauh-jauh hari. Rupanya masih ada satu sesi tradisi jawa yang kudu kami lalui setelah menikah, belum boleh pergi kalo belum ‘sepasar’. Sepasar itu itu apa saya juga gag begitu paham. Agak konyol syh memang menurut saya, tapi yasudahlah saya berusaha menghormati tradisi. Salah saya sendiri juga kenapa gag tanya sana sini sebelum merencanakan liburan. So…we spent time unpacking, opening wedding gifts, and merging our lives together. Yah…tung-itung istirahat karena badan masih capek habis nikahan. We ate leftovers from our reception on the floor of our living room, while sorting through gifts. We we went back to work on Wednesday. Ppfftttt….

Gagal honeymoon ini sebenarnya bikin sedikit kecewa, tapi setelah saya pikir-pikir ada sisi positifnya juga kok diskip dulu honeymoonnya. On a financial note, I am so glad that we didn’t embark on a trip right away. As any current or past bride knows, getting married is expensive! Additionally, a lot of the cost creeps up right at the end of the process, and even on the day of. It was a relief.

Semarang Open 2014 Freestyle Slalom Skating Competition

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic. It takes sweat, determination, and hard work. – Colin Powell

I’m back! finaleeeeh … 😀

Life has been hectic the past few weeks.

So .. let’s talk about my competition 3 weeks ago. I took a part to national competition called Semarang Open 2014. This is an annual event, and this year is the second year that the freestyle slalom competition was held in Semarang. Time goes by way too fast; I still remember last year competition with my team, just like it was yesterday.

The day before competition there was a workshop with the guest star, Yu Jin Seong and Terence Cheung. They are top skater from Korea and Singapore. Here the video … check this out!

Every time I come back to freestyle slalom competition, I enjoy it more and more. I think part of the reason, is because I know what to expect. A couple of things were different this year, or at least seemed like they were.

Even though we went through some difficult times, we will work our hardest for this competition because we know we can do it and we will. I was up at 5 am Saturday morning; excited but I also had nervous butterflies. After 2 month in full on training mode, I’m ready for the competition. I don’t know how many times during a workout I have felt like I was going to barf, pass out, or DIE. But I did not. I kept going. 😀

I felt nervous. Semarang Open 2014 was a national competition. At this competition, I got nervous, breathing hard, my stomach churning, not being able to eat, and feeling like I had to pee every time I had a chance to cool down. Continue reading

Things that Made Me Happy this Week

Hey everyone!

Can you believe it’s nearly April already?

Seems like it was only a while ago that I wrote my gratitude on the blog. Then, I finally stopped doing it in public and decided to count my everyday blessings in private.
I believe that there is always something be thankful for.

So, this is my list:

♡ Happy loooooong weekend! I was happy that the break was finally upon me, so I took advantage of it, and well … took a break and spent the Saturday night relaxing with my boy friend and my family.

♡ Last Sunday was one of the days I was in the house all day. Take a nap. I consider this a rather productive activity; it recharges your energy level, so you can be ready for the next chapter of your life. I also made some dishes and blogging in the night. Continue reading

What Is The Connection Between Water And Human?

It’s me again.

Bonjour à tous! Comment ça va?

So, I’m super inspired to blog again!! This kind of feeling normally won’t last long. The weather recently is so bad. Almost every day is rain and the wind is so cold enough to make me sick. Even in the several cities in Indonesia was attacked by flood. Pray for the victims.
