Happy 70th Independece Day, Indonesia!

Eventhough I am 16,000 miles away from home, but I still have my own pride to be Indonesian. I feel proud of myself tho, going to the Consulat General of Republic of Indonesia in New York, attending our ceremony and wearing kebaya. I always have goosebump whenever I heard our anthem, Indonesia Raya. Ugh, Indonesia.. Say no more, I love you.

Mini Paradise in Maluku with R

I was gonna write this post on July, since [I think] is my luckiest month of the year but I was too busy enjoying it HAHA sorry :) So.. my childhood friend asked me to go with him to Ambon, Maluku, before I got to Indonesia this summer. I was like, naaahh. You broke my heart back in the days and now you ask me to go with you to the eastern side of Indonesia? Omg, keep yourself together man. Yes, he is my ex for two months when I was 13. LOL. Vine still can't move on from that thing, little Vine loved this guy that much HAHA, yo' I'm laughing writing this..

Let's call him, R. Everybody know, he's known as the bad guy type of person. And I must say I'm impressed that he took the Indonesian Police Academy for his path, that's one brave decision. With the fortunate event of my dad is now currently positioned as the head of curriculum in Indonesian Police Academy, whenever I visit Semarang (the city where the academy is located), I stay inside the Academy complex. For the first time in centuries, I visited him during the visiting hours, and we see each other. Me and him were like.. wow. And throwback talk starts. Classic. C l a s s i c. It was only a twenty minutes talk, because I visited him late, sorry, but then I picked him up the next day on his day off and we spent our time together. I know I said no for Ambon at the first place, but somehow I changed my mind. Sparks was there yo. I didn't expect it either. It just happened. So, before I dropped him off at his dorm, he asked for my dad's permission to take me to Ambon, he said yes. Woo-hoo.

Along the way, we talked intensively than before until he got his ten days off. Right after he landed in Jakarta and dropped his luggage, he visited me right after, you miss me that much dear? hahaha. R watched me pack my stuff for tomorrow's flight to Ambon. On July 12 midnight, me, R, his mom, Nabila, Andhika, Mia, and Bobby flew to the one of the most exotic place in Indonesia. Yadda yadda yadda, he asked me to be his, and V&R gathered back togethaaaaaa! :) See the paradise has already began, at least for me :P

Our main destination was Ora Island, 2 hours cruise + 2 hours drive from Ambon City to get there. 4 hours didn't seem long when you can snuggle right? haha. I wish I could stay longer in Maluku, but it was two day trip. Nevertheless, it was so memorable as it could be. 

















Ugh.. there are so many cool pictures of six of us.. but I can't upload and share them, since the boys weren't in their unifoms. But that's fine, it taught us to keep the best only for you. #Wisdom

Robbed

Nah, I didn't get robbed as literally haha I'm fine I'm fine. Even though, we need to be extra careful in Jakarta cause people are getting crazier during this month. Holiday season is a round the corner along with the crimes. Be careful girls and guys! Always mind your belongings :)

Something caught my attention lately. It totally robbed me. My mind is full of it. What is it? Umm.. It's a good thing, a perspective to change my life to be better, I promise haha. Like right now, it's 5 AM, it keeps me up all night. My nights full of research had me thinking. Maybe it also because of Ramadhan month! My mind got clearer ever like it never been before HAHAHA Alhamdulillah yaa Allah, thank you for giving me a way to see the right path. What I learned from my sleepless nights are:

1. You can't force a period to be a comma.

2. Forgiven is not enough. People who accept, wins.

3. Ikhlas. Let go. 

Once, one of my bestfriends told me. Ikhlas, there is no school to learn to be ikhlas. You have to earn it. From who? from yourself. Start forgiving yourself, accept for who you really are, and realize that you are way valuable than before.

I'd like to thank someone I used to know too. I took his words. He used to give me wise advices that I never took hahaha naughty Vine is naughty, but I do now, so thank you, you. I know you'll say "Told ya" from up there. I thank God for letting me know him and learn so much from him. Such a guru haha. I'm sending my prayers to him in Heaven, I hope you're OK there.

Dream by B.I.Y.A.N

Sooooo... I gave my other two invitations to my other friends from ESMOD yeaay, 4 ESMOD friends with me that night. I arrived at 6, and the show starts at 7, and it was empty. Yes, it is expected in Indonesia. Due to the traffic or those pretty girls keep changing their clothes and spending too much time on make up haha, girls. I got interviewed by some media and press during the wait time. The show finally started at 8, just give them applause for the sake of BIYAN. Entering the show, we were all greated by this white gigantic tree in the middle of runway which excite everybody, you can tell. Even before the show hasn't started yet, I know the collection is gonna rock the night. And yes it freaking was. Mind blowing. Well, I wish I could sit in the front row but second row wasn't that bad. I brought my camera with me but I'm not really happy with the result, I was dropping my jaw most of the time, sorry. But here's some..
