Nyepi Day

  Setting off on a journey is not just about planning the date of departure, booking the hotels, or arranging the tours, but also checking what will be going on at your destination while you are there. In my case, I forgot the last step. Some years ago, in 2014, I was off to Bali with my husband in March to celebrate his birthday. Recklessly, I forgot to check when the Balinese would celebrate Nyepi that year. You might think that I'm exaggerating, or that it's not really that important to check. That’s your opinion, but I assume that it will be clearer to you after reading…

The X-files

Mulder and Scully are coming back! But note that although I am a novice X-phile, I am not a total newbie!  In Indonesia, one of our TV channels would turn every Thursday night into an investigative nightmare by showing this epic series. It was eerie watching the episodes alone (even though my mom was sleeping beside me that time), but I was too curious not to look. So once I peeked from behind my blanket and suddenly the room got dark! I suppose it was because I fell asleep. Unfortunately, when I had conquered any fears about watching the X-Files, that channel stopped showing the much-loved series.…

Passengers

My husband and I really love watching movies, especially if the movies are about space or something like that. When I lived in Indonesia, I didn’t watch movies very often. It was because, at that time, I didn’t have enough time for watching. And, also my internet connection wasn’t so stable. Moreover, we didn't have access for downloading movies. I know that this is forbidden in many countries. But, sometimes the rules are made to be broken, aren’t they?  I started ‘my journey’ in ‘space by watching Interstellar. It was a really good movie. I could raise even my 4 thumbs up (2 of them are big…

TEREMOK, A TRADITIONAL FAST FOOD

Don’t lie to me; don’t say that you don’t love fast food. I understand that healthy people can easily survive without consuming any fast food. They even consider this food to be a serious threat to human health. But still, people don’t care (myself included sometimes) and keep funding, aiding, and supporting some giant's fast food kingdom (you-know-what-they-are). Eating fast food has become a part of our modern life, a part of entertainment that you can hardly get in your busy day. So having this food available sometimes is not a big sin, is it? I don’t think that it is a sin, especially when you know that…

Waterfalls in Northern Part of Bali (Singaraja)

  To be honest, this was my first time visiting the waterfalls. It’s a shame, because I live in a country where you can find magnificent scenery such as waterfalls everywhere. If I may be blunt, Indonesians are not very fond of travelling. I'm afraid we love buying exclusive items, spending our money on sophisticated electronic devices, or buying two cups of coffee in Starbucks whenever we get the chance. At the same time, some just don’t have enough money to go travelling. Those are the answers I usually give when a foreigner asks why we don’t enjoy our natural surroundings, or why we don’t explore our…
