My Waitressing Gig

I probably was about 17 or 18 at the time I started looking for a part-time job during school. It was cool, to think that I was able to earn my own pocket money and do something useful during a long break.It would be nice if I had so much break and just as much... Continue Reading →



I know even from early on in life, I've been really lucky, protected and secluded from many ugliness of the world. I have a wonderful childhood, my family is not rich, but we are doing ok. As a child, you don't really think of these things. You think everyone else has the same things you... Continue Reading →

I’m a Class Nerd

Since young, I've always loved writing. My mum has neat handwriting that I always admired as a child. We would try to plagiarise imitate her handwriting and signature. (Every kid does this, right?) Uhm, anyway. I think because of mum too, I had pretty neat handwriting and I always had diaries and journals; and my... Continue Reading →

People Change. Memories Don’t.

(I found this unpublished draft in my blog recently, and so I thought I'd share it. I wrote this quite a while back actually. It's interesting to read what my younger-self was thinking.) So I was on my way back a couple of nights ago after a movie-night with my friend, and I was just... Continue Reading →

Productive Day-Off

Yay! Who doesn't love a public holiday on a weekday! Okay, you may disagree (but I don't think so..) but don't you think that one of the best (underrated) feelings in the world is going to bed at night and not having to set an alarm! Hey, we gotta be thankful for the little things,... Continue Reading →

Not the best.

Today is just one of those days that I'm just too tired to fight this internal stress that's been clouding my mind. I'm normally my own best cheerleader, I tell myself I'm thinking too much, I psych myself up and I create my own excitement. However, today I just don't feel like fighting it. I'm...

Home-Bound Weekend

For today's post, I feel like writing about my recent trip home. Last month my sister and I flew back to Jakarta for the weekend. It's been a year since I went back home and it's a much-needed getaway. I really miss the friendliness of Indonesian people, the familiar sightings of the neighbourhood that I... Continue Reading →

Adulting is hard.

Hello Saturday! Unlike other weekends, I woke up relatively early (okay about 12 noon but hey! I said relatively.. and I'm known to sleep way past noon on my days off.. yes, I'm a bum..) for an appointment at a bridal studio to look at gowns. It suddeny dawned on me that my wedding is...
