Embracing the British Winter

Longing to embrace another winter season would be my best reason why I decided to come back to the UK this year – especially in December.

Nothing can beat the feeling of mine to touch the snowflakes *i wonder if snow will come in the UK*, to feel the winter breeze and especially just to wear coats, boots, mittens and muffler for the most right reason.

Most of my friends would say things like; “why winter?”, “winter is gloomy!”, “not enough sunshine” – up to the point…”i can’t put on my sexy dress in winter!” …
well me? i don’t care…i love the cold *Indonesia is full of sunshine and hot and humid…got enough of it!* – everything looks sparkle and festive!

well hello winter! 🙂

a bit of Jogjakarta

So…here we were…went to Jogjakarta – which once was the capital city of Indonesia (before Jakarta). It was a bit cloudy, but somehow we managed everything well…

Bukit Bintang

Bukit Bintang

Bukit Bintang or in English would be “Star Hill” – where we could see Jogjakarta the city and as well as the outskirt. Before sunset would be the best time to come here – so, the changes between day and night would be obvious.

Hotel Tentrem *****

Hotel Tentrem *****

My favourite hotel in Jogjakarta – “Tentrem” means calm and soothing – and these are what they giving you.
Huge room, great facilities and friendly staffs – those are things that may be needed during travel!
I do love how the hotel put my name on the big screen TV! – feels so welcoming…

Aloha! Hello 2014…

Here i am – still the same *well physically – not getting slimmer anyway ~

Some updates…
I left the year of 2013 as it is – no regret, no need to feel sorry to myself, too relieve to grieve and some things remains not to be understood.
Nevertheless, I love 2013!
From my countless journey – Japan then Singapore then the UK, my uncountable memories – Ayumi Hamasaki’s concert then the first time ever visit to Wales, my priceless lessons of life – how to appreciate others then how to accept the truth about love, my valuable friendships that across the countries and continents – met my best friend in everywhere I travel to…
those are not to be count like 1…2…3 – because all of them are incalculable…

Therefore…
I am still me – nothing change…still have a huge desire to travel;
..love to chat, love to talk, love to argue…*proud being a Gemini
..love to smile yet quite often to cry;
..fancy Disney Princess and Barbie – and oh…Princess Jasmine is my favourite one!
..fancy Polar Bear *was a big fan of Knut;
..like anime – my favourites are Tennis no Oujisama, Rozen Maiden, Uta no Prince-sama, Meitantei Conan and Kindaichi;
..like a 15 years old girl despite of my real age ~ *having no shame about it

2014
I do still want to do something amazing – go in a different path than before…
…I don’t have an exact resolution …I just wish everything would be better for me, you and every soul in this whole wide world…

WELCOME TO MY LIFE dear 2014!

welcome to Tokyo #Japan

arrived in Tokyo on Friday ~ i was happy into tears…i just can’t express the value of the happiness for being here again. since this is my 3rd visit to come here on my own – so, i decided not to stay in a hotel, not only because of their bloody expensive price but also i have this desire to live on my own in a small Japanese apartment…

so…here i am, staying at Shibuya-ku – around 7 minutes walk to Shibuya Station that is always full with teenagers and tourist, especially at the Hachiko statue area…
the apartment is small – only 20sqm, but its nice, cozy and clean – honestly, i can’t ask for anything better than this.
