On to a new blog!

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.

To those of you who might notice, I have already been on blogger.com for about 8 years. I started writing on this blog since the second year of high school, and it has been going on until now. Having been continuously doing something for a long time is actually quite an accomplishment for itself, since I get bored really easily, and I work on so many little side projects which can be huge distractions for me to actually do something persistently. But then, here I am, been writing on my blog for 8 years, so I suppose I can do a pat-myself-on-the-back kind of thing for that.

But you know, sometimes doing something consistently is not enough. What is it that I have achieved over the last 8 years of writing? I am not someone with any meaningful content in my blog. This blog has always been a self-healing kind of place for me to write things that I have been worried about, things that I can never actually share verbally to anyone, or things related with love or compassion, and really just little thoughts on various matters. But it has never had any connection or certain theme in between them except that there is one writer to all those: me.

So, a few months ago, I started doing a little project: writing another blog which actually has a theme to it, travel. I have always enjoyed travelling (as most people do, really), and I want to be able to remember things I have done in my travel, by writing them. Along my life, I have also had to a point where I realized that I have a certain passion with photography (and cinematography), and those so-called passion can also be channeled with the help of my travel blog.

So, here I am, starting everything over ever since last March, writing several starter posts with very low number of views; even lower than most of my posts in this blog (lol). And I am hoping that you would care to take a brief stroll to it, and tell me what you think. Here's a picture with the link:

Spoiler: it is in Indonesian so... sorry to anyone interested who does not speak the language. Well, I do have the intention to write the posts about places in Indonesia in English language though, and I will let you know if I have any of those posted.

And yeah, as usual, wish me the best of luck and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Wassalamualaikum wr. wb.

Kagami Seira!!! (yeah, apparently dating Yamapi)

I wanna share some info about my brand-new IDOL!! hahahahaha!!! well, as you can read on the title, i said that she's apparently dating yamapi, right? well, maybe that's true, hahaha. it's an a bit out-dated news though. the rumor spreads widely about in september '09. because of that rumour, i searched for any info regarding their relationship. and of course, her personal info, hahaha. and then i saw one of her music vid, titled 'kaleidoscope'. in that vid she was so cute. and then i saw her other music vid titled 'first sight ft. ryohei', and i fell in love with that song! hahahaha! it took a quite long time for me to search for her mp3, and i ended up downloading her full single which includes 'super special' in it. and yesterday, i downloaded her first full-album titled 'celebration' and i don't regret it, hahaha. because her songs are cool. well, not all of them, but overall they're still cool. her voice is beautiful too, be…

Soundtracks of my life :)

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.
If this were a Facebook status, I'd write "I'm feeling nostalgic". 
I am currently listening to old songs on my laptop; the songs I used to download as mp3s long before Spotify existed. Songs which I used to listen throughout the different stages of my life, each of those subconsciously linked to certain memories. On this post, I'll list them all in an orderly manner, just for fun. (Feels like it's been such a long time since I did something "just for fun", haha).
Here we go!
Junior High School
Start of Something New - High School Musical We Are One - Lion King Koko Dake No Hanshi - Prince of Tennis
I used to be obsessed with Lion King (don't think the obsession ceased up until now) and listened to its songs almost everyday after school. Since I did not have fast internet connection and couldn't download any mp3s at that time, I listened to the songs on my tape by playing the movie's VCD. I knew exactly at which minu…

Things That I am Grateful for in 2017

Assalamu'alaikum wr. wb.
Today marks the first day of 2018, thus 2017 had officially ended. 
I think it feels great to have a feeling of starting anew again, since 2017 was not that great for me. I personally think that I didn't accomplish that many things last year, and it really made me feel bitter; empty and unsatisfied. However, as life goes on, I need to move forward and turn the bitterness of 2017 into lessons, while still being grateful of the little things in 2017 that made me feel happy. So, here comes the list of what I am grateful for, and in the next post I will share the things that I wish I did differently in 2017.
I am grateful that I was engaged. Back in early April 2017, my boyfriend told me that he would like to talk to my dad and ask him if he can marry me. This did not come off as shocking to me because I knew that one day that time would come, but I did become a little bit emotional when I actually saw him talking earnestly to my parents about wanting to m…
