Insanity

We are living in a world where common sense is no longer common,

where people defend their religion more than humanity,

where people blinded by their own interests more than other well-beings,

where people judge others by physical appearance more than their true characters…

 

where money, power, and positions are more important than love, family, and relationships…

 

where people are busy envying others’ life which can be seen from the window of social media instead of being grateful of the abundance that they have,

where people feeling proud of their success by celebrating on others’ failings,

where being sane and righteous will make you look weird and stupid.

What a crazy world we are living.

Belitung, An Enchanting Island (Part 1)

It’s always been my desire to bring my family to a vacation as a simple gesture of my gratitude towards them. I’ve been growing up witnessing all of my parents’ struggles and sacrifices for my sister and I. I am fully aware that nothing we can do to repay their kindness, but at least, I wanna do something to make them happy and proud. God answered my every-night-prayers. On May 2016, I had the opportunity to bring my whole family to a simple vacation and Belitung Island was chosen as our destination. That was such a short, yet meaningful trip. I’ve got the chance to have a real quality time with my family.

Siem Reap, the Ancient City

Last year, I’ve got the chance to visit one of the most ancient city in the world: Siem Reap, Cambodia. I went there for a business purpose and didn’t get much excited at first because Cambodia was never been in my wishlist when talking about travel destinations that I want to visit. However, after two and a half days spent there (mostly for business meetings and sneakingly made the most of the rest of time to go around the town), this city left such a great impression to me that I wouldn’t mind to go back there again someday!

Midnight Trip to Mount Bromo

Are you a mountain or beach person? As for me, I do enjoy to cluster in a quiet mountain escaping from the buzz of everyday life, better than go to beaches which are typically noisier filled with a bunch of people. Therefore, one of the highlight of my travel during 2015 was when visiting Mount Bromo, an active volcano which is also one of the most popular tourist haunts in East Java, Indonesia. When looking for destination, one-minute Bing-ing the images of Mount Bromo was enough for me to decide that I would definitely go there.

Glamping at Gunung Pancar

Have you ever got sick of being a mall-rat, jumping from one mall to another during the weekends? Getting trapped in a heavy traffic jam and being surrounded by heaps of crowds in the mainstream routines by most of Jakartans? For an introvert like me, it’s surely far away from any comfort. Many times I got bored and sick, to the point I prefer spending my weekends at home, doing something that I enjoy the most.

Luckily, I have this bunch of people who felt the same way and wanted any other alternatives to spend our weekend in a fun way. We decided to go Glamping at Gunung Pancar Sentul.

2016 Resolutions

How many of us made some resolutions in the beginning of New Year, but failed to accomplished many of them at the end of the year? It happens to me most of the time too. Maybe, we just need to do something differently this time.

After all, I still think that making resolutions or something that I want to accomplish at the end of the year is very important thing to do. It makes me to be able to really focus on what should I do and prioritize during the whole year and gets less-distracted on any other things that come up along the way.

If all this time you have been struggling (like me) to make your resolutions into reality at the end of the year, maybe we need a different strategy that can keep us ‘on-track’ with our commitments on our resolutions. What I do this year was: involving other people in my resolutions!
