Back to my nir-faedah kinda post.

I was on page 184 when a good friend of mine texted and she suddenly poured her mental state. I was frozen for a moment before picking up my self and texted her back with some rational-encouraging words that I wish could help.

This is a tough time for us, especially her, with all burden on her shoulder and the recent loss that we've experienced. It's not easy and never getting any easier, so we just have to face it now, embrace the fact that she's gone and feel the stings for a couple years.

I finished two books today, one that I read from weeks ago, and one that I just read and not really have much information that I need. When I decided to go on the third book, only when I was halfway distractions started to come. Alright, I put my book aside and try to attend to the only thing I should attend: life.

It's been a week since I shut myself in the house. Not going outside, let alone spoke to another human being. I feel weird doing that especially when I used to talk to my neighbor a lot for the past couple of weeks. But another good friend of mine said that I could do that without asking for permission and its not selfish. A couple of video calls, group chat, or whatever, Instagram chit-chat, and then there was an online class I regret taking. Life, has finally turned back to 'normal' for me. The definition of my new normal has begun long before the media start to speak about it. I realized about this change since day one of self-quarantine, that life will never be the same and I decided to make it as my normal.

Here I am, happily back to the digital world, and forgetting the world exists.
I really miss the outside world now, one that requires one flight or two. The airport, the waitings, the snack between car ride, I miss packing though I used to hate it so much..

There are things that come so quickly without any sign nor warning and change our lives forever. Sometimes its the depart of the loved one, sometimes its the arrival of love, an engagement, marriage, then comes a baby. All of us would go through stages of life, that's been promised since thousand of years ago, written in the sky. But we're too busy to wait for another stage, and forget to live the current stage we're standing.

Humans are made with a little bit of fear and hope. Those two are the fuels to live and yet life is all about controlling them. There are people out there who love to control other people, and they got mad when they got rejected. I understand those rages, I understand how insecurity and the need of being recognized can turn a human into a scary monster.

So what is my point, exactly?
I don't know.. maybe I dont have one.

Travel Through Time to Raijua

Menuju Raijua.. bahkan perjalanannya adalah petualangan tersendiri. Kamu harus terbang ke Kota Kupang (atau Waingapu), tapi saya memilih Kupang, lalu berlayar dengan kapal cepat selama 5-7 jam untuk menuju Pulau Sabu. Sebenarnya ada beberapa pilihan untuk ke Pulau Sabu dari Kupang, yaitu dengan naik pesawat Susi Air selama kurang lebih 55 menit dengan harga sekitar 1,3 juta, atau naik kapal Ferry lambat dengan waktu tempuh selama 12-13 jam seharga Rp 80 - 120rb per orang, atau naik kapal Ferry cepat yang berangkatnya malam dan sampai di Pulau Sabu pagi (jadi kurang lebih 8 jam juga). Kapal cepat harganya berkisar di 200rb-an, saya sendiri memilih naik kapal Cantika Express kelas VIP seharga Rp 262 ribu. Di dalam kelas VIP Kapal Express Cantika, tapi jendelanya terlalu tinggi untuk bisa duduk lihat laut Tenang, ada jaket keselamatan. Tadinya saya mau bawa sendiri karena takut menyeberang selama tujuh jam. Tapi rupanya yang harus lebih dikhawatirkan itu menyeberang dua jam

About being a strong woman.,

My product(s) are a means to show people that we could and should be happy in wherever we are, in whatever the circumstances. As a single person battling with all the worryness of who am I gonna end up with while dealing with work and life, I must admit that I am strong enough to do it all alone. Including being obedient to difficult father and grandfather. I am strong. But at the end of the day, when I got home after a very long Sunday and clean my self with cold water.. I still wish that I have somebody in this house... to open the hair serum for me. :( Kenceng banget 15 menit nyoba buka tutupnya gabisa2
