Christmas Dinners

This post was originally posted on my Dayre on 26 Dec 2016
Merry Christmas!! Well it's past midnight already but it's okay. 

This year has got to be my most happening year, with the never ending Christmas lunchs and dinners.
It all started with a Christmas Lunch with one of my disti in Nomz πŸŽ„ Black Christmas it is!
Followed by a Christmas dinner with another disti in Sushi Tei. Another Black Christmas πŸŽ„
And then a not-so-small reunion with ex colleagues. Well this is not a Christmas celebration though haha.
DCG White Christmas dinner @ Shaburi. Love the team ❤️ 

Sorry I am too lazy to make the picture into square had to cut two people here πŸ˜‚
Christmas getaway to Bali with the gurlzzzzz 😍😍😍😍😍
We did not really plan to wear all white but sisters think alike πŸ˜‚
Hehehehe I supa love this picture πŸ’ƒπŸ»
Another picture that I like so much too 😍 everyone looks stunning 😍
Still in Bali with #coachella theme πŸ˜‚
Work hard play hard ❤️😌
After Bali it's then another series of Christmas celebrations πŸ˜…
The annual SMB x Marketing Christmas celebration. Sorry had to cut some people too πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Still the SMB x Marketing team πŸŽ„
The "berlima+satu" gang supposedly-blue-but-look-black-instead Christmas dinner also celebrating Ci Lisa's bday πŸŽ„
Sosialita's dinner (Socialite in English) hahaha
The real work hard play hard gang. We literally have something happening every month πŸ˜‚ 

October was trip to Thousand Island
November was trip to Gunung Pancar
December is the Christmas Dinner

In between we often had impromptu dinner/karaoke/chilling πŸ˜‚
We booked a karaoke room for our gift exchange πŸ˜‚ seriously the most memorable Christmas celebration this year. We somehow are able to make everything laughable haha
Lunch with ex colleagues again.
Christmas celebration in one of the partner's office πŸŽ„ I am their annual guest πŸ€— with different company every year coz people keep leaving 😭 and I am still here 🀣
Another lunch with one of the disti in Signatures @ Kempinski. This is my third lunch on that day πŸ˜… have to rush like mad from one place to another hahaha. 

End up cannot really eat a lot of things. 😭
At night another Christmas dinner with my high school friends. Have to bring clothes to change coz different dress code with the lunch πŸ˜‚ 

I really feel like an actress that day with all the busy schedules haha.
I like this picture so let me post it here too hehehe. 

I am drained though. Although I loveeee meeting people and all these parties and celebrations and all, I still need my me-time. 

A time where I can sit still and focus on the real meaning of Christmas. Feeling gratitude and overwhelmed with joy and blessed and gratitude again that Jesus sacrifice everything, come and save us. 

He left His throne, He gave His only son, He went through great pain -that He can choose not to- just for us.
Where else can I find such love? ❤️

Words can't describe how grateful I am. Thank You for coming into this undeserving world. Thank You for Your love ❤️
Also thank you to some great friends who had me on their thoughts! 

It was ci Ipii's bday but she sent me this on her bday. My real role model of generosity!!!
Thank you ci Vony the Mama Santa
The partner who always had me on their thought πŸ€— can't be more grateful!
Also someone far away but still managed to send me some surprise! Thank you dear There. ❤️
And also thank you, a women I proudly call her my non-biological sisterπŸŽ„ it's a sister by heart ❤️

That's me and my two high school buddies, Teddy and CS, last night. (3 Dec 2016)

Funny how we feel like it's been quite some time since the three of us meet up and have a long chat. Therefore the three of us spared our time yesterday night.

Saturday night has always been CS's family's time. I always remember we can't really hang out with him on Sat night coz he will always go out with his family. But he excused himself yesterday night to meet us.

Saturday night is supposedly Teddy's dating time. It's Sat night! And if he doesn't go on date, he will go out with his family as well. But he excused himself yesterday night to meet us.

Yesterday my soul sister Nia was staying over at my house and I intended to bring her to our meeting too, but she did not feel very well so she just wanted to stay at my home. I felt bad for leaving her alone in my room while I went out but I made a promise to both of them and so I went.

It's about priority. It's about making time. It's about sacrificing. It's about the effort of maintaining this friendship.

The truth is..

Teddy is working in the same company with me so we can actually see each other THAT often in the office. Teddy and CS go to the same church so they basically see each other every week. Me and CS is merely one call away. The last time I caught up with him was few weeks ago when I had training in his tower, so we had coffee together, and we still chat up now and then.

I am grateful for these two.

Hello again...

Hello, my abandoned blog.. that I have sort of forgotten.. blame dayre please! It's easier to post there lololol. Although I rarely write something there too. Ok sorry my blog, it's all because of me, I have forgotten you T_T

Thanks to Opa who sort of reminding me that I have a blog haha.

Poor you, in 2008 I wrote 124 posts. 8 years have passed and I only have 2 posts this year. Gonna be 3 with this one. The past two years also only 3 posts a year. Now come to think about it.. basically since I started working, this productivity level of writing has dropped to its minimum level. =O

My top priority now is working which takes up most of my time. Followed by socializing with friends. I rarely opened up my laptop when I am home, except for working. Now if I wanna browse anything, I will just use my phone. That's why if I wanna post anything, I did it on dayre. But I should not. I should have written it here. All my thoughts, my trips, my journey. I should have poured them all there so I can look back and see how myself change and grow. It's sad that I can't review my past 3 years because I didn't put anything here.

It's a great feeling when I look back to my old posts and laughed at myself for being so alay hahahhaa. But those bring back the good old memories. Now, what was happening in 2014 - 2016 again?? T_T


I think I will TRY to write my 2016 trips, and all the stuffs that I remember, and if I find the pictures in my phone.

Now, I have to finish up my work first and when I am done, if I am not lazy, I will, really, I will try to recap my trip.

Sydney Last Day // Reinhart is One!

Originally posted on my Dayre on 28 August 2016

Continuing my Oz post… Lol.. From Hayman Island, the next day we went back to Sydney. We were supposed to go back to Jakarta on that same day but there's no more flight on that day (4 Aug) so they let us stay one more night. #dayretravel
Luckily we had that one day extra so me and mommy got chance to shop souvenirs since our first two days we mostly stroll around the city and did not get to buy souvenirs at all.
We only have one hour before they all closed the shop at 6 πŸ˜­
One lady even asked me to faster settle what I want to buy coz she is closing in 5 mins πŸ˜­
Me and mommy did a very quick shopping and then after we're done, met back again with my boss and she was so surprised we managed to carry a lot of bags already πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
If there's any shopping race I think me and mom will win already πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Finish shopping, I sent my mom back to the hotel coz she's tired and she wants to pack and my friend came and see me again.
We joked saying now it's no longer 4 years once but then again we're not sure when we will be able to see each other again. Long distance friendship is hard πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
My face after flight from Hayman Island to Sydney and super quick shopping and did not even get to bath πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
We did not know what to do, I have had my early dinner at 5 with my mom and he had his before he met me. So dinner is off the list. At first we just walked around, and I went to get my Calipo ice cream πŸ˜ and then he suggested to go sing karaoke.
I was like karaoke?
He's like, yea u keep humming when we walk…
So we went to sing K.. Lol..
Not ur typical tourist activity πŸ™ˆ
Then we continue strolling around the city, he then brought me to the other side of the bridge?
The view from the place he brought me. And we went back by walking pass the bridge.
Really not ur typical tourist πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
And my pedometer hits more than 20k again that day coz of walking πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚luckily I got massage already the day before πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
And this was my last day before the next morning we had to go back to Jakarta. πŸ˜­
And that's the end of my Sydney – Hayman Island trip πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­
I really love my experience in Sydney particularly thanks to this guy and Elin for bringing me around πŸ’• it has been an amazing blessing, like super amazing. It's an all out blessing. Like I got the best of everything and I couldn't be more grateful πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­
For God's plan is greater than my plan πŸ’•
I know my mom is super happy too with the trip πŸ˜
I'll definitely come back for Melbourne, Gold Coast and Sydney again!!
Reach Jakarta and right away went to Emporium Mall and had dinner with these girls πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ They all say my battery never runs out πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­
I think I got more energy after meeting people πŸ˜¬ geez I can never decide whether I am an introvert or extrovert but on this I believe I am an extrovert coz I love meeting people and even got more excited after seeing them rather than tired πŸ€”
Reinhart is turning one today πŸŽ‰
So my nephew Rein turns one today! He shared the same birthday with one my of Malaysian friend whom I got to know from work but we clicked and he is now one of my best bro who I really look up to. He is one of the most selfless person I have ever met and I have so much to learn from him on this topic alone!
Anyway Rein's bday party is today at 3PM. But me and my bro together with my cousins reached there at 12.45PM to start decorating the place πŸ˜
My sis didnt use any EO or pay any decor team and leverage us instead. Hahaha my bro even become the MC lol.
The dessert table that we set up! I love the back drop! The glitter is manually done by my bro in law with the help of my bro hahaha but it's stunning!
The word Reinhart is I got one from UK. I originally wanna get the letter R only, then I show my sis and she asked me to get all Reinhart lol but not bad also coz cannot find here.
The cake! Made by Rowena as always. It's fake btw hahaha
Oh and the theme is Little Prince! My sis baby shop is named after it.
I even got her a rose to match the theme and when I was in Aussie I got her the book with the thought it can be a good additional decoration.
Funnily when I was in UK, she asked me to get the book (I have not gave to her the book I got from the Oz) for decoration purpose.
Sisters think alike πŸ˜‚
Prince closed up! And got a rose there lol
Three sisters πŸ’• nah, that's my mom on the left πŸ˜‚ with the little prince. He is so grumpy today coz he did not nap! He refused to let anyone touch him only want his mama πŸ˜’
Sisters πŸ’• my #ootd we are wearing Penny Heels from @pumpkinglassshoes
I look like a china girl they said πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚
@pumpkinglassshoes πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• Penny Heels meet Clover πŸ˜
The weather was nice so we took a lot of photos outside lol
If I am posting this on instagram I am supposed to insert any happiness quotes on the caption, but since this is dayre….. "My face" will do
Play around with the balloons when party's over hahaha. Try to take the "ala-ala" picture πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Spam some more pictures okay πŸ™ˆ
My pretty cousins πŸ’• they all are much younger than me πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­ sad
This one even 9 years different with me πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­ why am I so old duh πŸ˜­πŸ˜­and i love this girl so much πŸ˜πŸ˜
Penny heels πŸ‘ 
Last one πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

Private: Hayman island day 2

August 16, 2016
Jetlag is real… Damn.. It's 3AM and I don't feel sleepy at all πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­
My fault coz I let myself slept until afternoon yesterday πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­ should have got myself to wake up early and start the day but really too tired to do that. πŸ˜­πŸ˜­
Luckily tomorrow (today) is a public holiday so I don't have to work yet.. Gonna spend the day having fun with the girls, really cannot wait πŸ™†πŸ»
In the mean time, I guess I will update my oz post again lol. #dayretravel
Hayman Island day 2
Dinner time was garden themed! They funnily have this set near our dinner garden, so guests can try acting like they surf lol.
They invited the indigenous to entertain us. He played didgeridoo- some sort of wind instrument and have a game for the guys, the best didgeridoo player wins one. When they play, they used the same didgeridoo so they indirectly shared saliva???? I was like ewwww hahahahaa
Momsky and one of the decoration. All out!
Woke up early morning the next day to play Katamaran Sailing πŸ™†πŸ»
Get ready πŸ™†πŸ»
Each boat can only have max 3 person, so we split 3-2. And we got lucky the cameraman put the go pro on our boat hahaha so we will be in the video yo!
Managed to catch Weezing in the island! Not bad! #pokemongo
After that we just walked around the island to see what we can see lol. Saw a lot of bats!!!
And then the beach πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜ I super love!!!!
1. Perfect weather, it wasn't too hot nor too cold
2. NO PEOPLE YO. I can literally roll on the sand if I want to. And take loads of this kind of photo till I get the best one. And I simply chose one for dayre coz the display is too small lah, I can't see which one is the nicest one hahaa.
I want every morning to be like this leh πŸ˜’
Really stress free moment, just look far to the sea, lying on the beach, having my me-moment, being grateful and happy and appreciative. I miss those πŸ˜­ and I am going back to work and traffic jam real soon πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”
Mom took 25 pics of this LOLLLLLLLL
Sigh. Life's good.
No filter, just by my iphone camera.. πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜ I instantly fell in love.
And what's best is they have wifi all over the island, I don't know how they managed to put the router in the outdoor lol but even in the beach, I got connection!
Dozen of photos πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
The ultimate jumping pose with uncle photobombing me πŸ’πŸ»
Random pic.
More random pic.. But look at the color πŸ˜»
This is the coolest yo! My room balcony is just a balcony facing to the pool. These rooms have their own pool attached to the room pls how can it be any cooler!! Like if you're bored, just open the balcony door and jump without having to go thru all the trouble walking around half naked from the room to the pool. Wah life's good hor. But too bad we didnt get this room lolol
I randomly checked the room price on, and found the cheapest for two nights is Idr 20mills?? That's like $1600 πŸ˜¨ and somemore it's the normal king size room or twin room. Mine was family room which I think will cost higher.
Guess how much the one with private pool? πŸ˜
Almost double the price yo! $3000 for two nights of the super cool room.
I guess I would not want to splurge that amount of money for rooms πŸ˜¬unless I become super rich like I can get anything everything d then ok hahaha. But now probably I will want to spend that for bags instead hahahahaha
Then i randomly google Maldives, like thinking honeymoon maybe u can get this type of holiday, but I rather go Maldives than Ausi? And found out Maldives cost the same too.
Now come to think about it, I should prefer Ausi coz they have cities for me although the city sleeps early. In Maldives, I will be coach potato only, although that should be the whole point of honeymoon? πŸŒ
Hahahaha why am I even thinking about this πŸŒ
But the food sucks πŸŒšπŸ˜­
The night view.. Guess $3000 is worth it after all…
At nightttttt, we have blanc party aka white party, on the beach. I think they were inspired by our Indonesia team kick off party, where we had our dinner by the beach too, white themed too.
The only difference is on the weather. That day it gets a little bit windy. I mean, a lot windy and it freezes all of us lololol.
Seriously man, it's like 15 degrees? With wind. And we're all like dressing prettily in white and freeze to death hahahaha
It was so fun on our kick off in Indonesia.
It's literally killing in Hayman island that night πŸŒš most of us (or me) ended up just sit on my chair coz it's freaking cold and I don't bother to do anything except holding my arms all together πŸ™ˆ
The organizers realized it's very very cold, they brought us blankets and shawls. It's hardly enough for everyone so BATHROBES came to rescue πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
And bathrobe is white too so it matches the dresscode πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
And after that we looked like some kind of disaster victims with all the blankets and bathrobes πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ super fail πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
It's 4:28 AM shyt.. I might as well not sleep today πŸŒš
