One Day Museum Visit

When you hear the word ‘museum’, what’s the first thing that pops in your mind?

You might find it boring and no fun, right? Last week, Quincy ( @quincyfans ) asked me and Nita ( @nitaadoria ) to visit a museum on Wednesday, 27th of August 2015 and also to take some insta-able photos for our instagram's feed. We agreed and planned to meet up at Tsu Zhi, PIK at 10 AM. Because the Museum is located in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, we thought because it’s far in distance and we believed that there would be some traffic at noon so we just went earlier.

But when morning came, I overslept because I didn't have many time to sleep. It was 12 PM and I had about 10 miscalls from Quincy and Nita. After I woke up, I just jumped from my bed and called them. Quincy was very upset with me at that time lol. After we talked on the phone, I ordered a taxi by phone. Then, I rushed to the bathroom to take a shower and prepared myself. I remembered that our intention was to take many photos, so I brought 2 different clothes. First, was my black basic tee and an unbuttoned white shirt, and the second one was my shirt from my birthday, it's a two-coloured shirt, it's white from the top part until the chest part and then it goes denim blue till the ends.

After my taxi came, I took my iPad because I thought my iPad's case would look good with my clothes. An hour and a half later, I finally arrived at Tsu Zhi and then the girls picked me up there. It was really hard to please them since I was late for about 3 hours. But as we joked and played around, everything seemed okay. 

We drove while using waze as our gprs. For the first time, we just realised that Kemayoran is quite near from Pluit ( my dorm's location ), we thought it's gonna be far but we actually arrived in just 30 mins. Moving on, the museum that we were visiting named Art:1 Museum & Art Gallery.

As we arrived, we headed up to the entrance stairs and then, we entered the building. This museum is really spacious. You can see their gray floor and white walls that would fit our instagram's feed.

First Level

At the first level, you'll see some lovely white tables and chairs that you're allowed to sit on, there'll be some artistic clay too on the left side. On the right side, there'll be some graffiti on the wall and a hand painted picture about butterfly's metamorphosis that I really like.

[New Semester]

Getaway to Pari Island

How y'all have been doing?

Holiday is almost over. As for me, this week is my last time to enjoy and do something for my holiday. Yes, next week is the beginning of new semester, same routine, daily lecture and bla bla bla..

So, to spend my week really wisely, I asked my friend to do a trip to Pari Island.
I've been planning to visit some island since last year, and finally I've got a chance now. First I personally asked one of my friend and the rest is her work.

My trip was quite short, it's a 2 days and 1 night trip. There's 6 of us, me, Bryan ( @bryan_aristaa ), Brazelton ( @brazelton2296 ), Nathan ( @michaelnathanielb ), Maria ( @memarielle3 ), and Cindy ( @cindyusuf ). We started it at Wednesday, 5th August 2015. First of all, I'm walking from my dorm to Bryan and Brazel's dorm at early morning, it was 4.45 AM when I've got there. Their dorm is not far from mine and it only takes 5 mins walking there. I already bring my backpack and stuff. In there, there was Maria and Nathan who already there. After 5 of us met up, we took Bryan's car and drove it to Cindy's house. Bryan parked his car in front of her house and we moved our bags and things to Cindy's car. Her mom drove us to the port in Kali Adem, Muara Angke. It's quite near from our area so we didn't worry about getting late. We used the travel package from a local guide there called Muji Travel and we must paid IDR 410.000,00 each person and we got a homestay with air conditioner, breakfast, lunch, dinner, a BBQ set, and snorkeling. So at that morning I've got a message from Mr Muji that we need to look for Mr Buthong at the port to take us to the boat.

What will you do in Bandung for 2 days?

If you're asking me, I'l tell you how I spent my last short getaway in Bandung.

17th July 2015,
I had a nice dinner and short quality time with my friends from senior high school. They asked me to join them for a small trip for about 7 people to Bandung. It takes a lot of time to Bandung from Jakarta ETA 3 hours at ordinary days, and since it's Eid, I think there'll be so much traffic and could be 5-6 hours to get there. So they decided to go there at 4 AM. 

Well I haven't got my parents permission, I rushed to home after they gone, and ask if I could join my friends or not, they said they will pick me up too. My dad, he said it's okay to go since it's just 2 days and one night. 

After I told one of my friends that I could go, not so long after that, he said they've canceled their plan because just a little of them who could join. Well, I'm a bit disappointed because I already planning where to go and what outfit I should wear. well it broke my heart a little so I just fell asleep that day.

Saturday, 18th July 2015
I woke up so late today, I think it's about 1 PM ( LOL I'm so good at sleeping ), and then my dad suddenly came to my room and said "let's go to Bandung" and I was like "Really?" and I'm panicked at the moment and packed all of my stuff like clothes and and charger etc. 

So the story began now.

Since it was too late, I already predicted we'll arrive at late night. my grandma is in Bandung too with my relatives, They stay at some nice villa called Villa Teratai at Lembang ( it's like the highland part of Bandung ). Since she's there, my family first destination is to meet them.

At first, the road is not so crowded, but when we drive about 30 mins, we stuck at traffic and we just accept the reality, it's so looooooongggg journey until we arrive at Bandung, I remember it's 10 PM when we arrive at Lembang and we ate some dinner in there at Ayam bakar brebes. Near that restaurant, there's so many nice street snack stalls at the side road.
