Dear My New Stranger

I don’t hate you or love you

I don’t even miss you or long for you, not anymore

It is just indifferent



I wonder how come something that started beutufully ended up tragically

All the excuses, blamming, hurting and repenting



You think it was a mistake, I have to agree with you this time

Because sadly you are not as important as you used to be when we were just friends

Probably because all the bad memories

And all the hurts you caused in the name of ‘protecting my heart’



I thought you know me better? I was wrong,

How fragile and instable me could made such a bad decision,

Is not it clear?

You Can’t Have Your Cake And Eat It



Maybe one day I will recall this memory again and think how funny it is

Maybe when the day comes, you will be long gone or I will be long gone.

Vanish with only a few glimpse of imagination to recall



I thought you are a water, I was wrong

We both are fire

And that’s why it was never compatible



I don’t hate you or love you

It does not even matter if we talk or not

Because life goes on and I am in betterment without you.

Taking Care of My Mental Wellbeing

I was wondering about life lately.
There is no particular reasons I have to be upset about.
28: Healthy life, lovely family, loyal friends, 3 properties of my own, double master degrees.
But everything could just vanish in a second.
Because life is full of unpredictable factors.
It could be flipped upside down anytime.
That is why I think it is important to focus on the present moment
To live your life for the moment, being mindful.
Instead of doing a never ending planning about future.

That is also the reason why these days I am trying to train myself to be emotionally strong.
I have been focusing on mental well being for the past weeks.
I exercise, practise yoga, meditate, pray, listen to good vibrant sounds (chanting and mantras).
Instead of searching for achievements and gratitude from other people, I am trying to find inner happiness.
To be loving myself and to spread the joy of happiness to other people.
It is important to have a meaningful life.
To make your life useful of others.
At the same time, I think it is also important to build a positive character and to be emotionally mature
So when life hits you, you could rebound quickly and learn from it.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017 FROM SUMATRA, INDONESIA!

IT'S A WRAP! 2017 will be the number that we all need to write often in official documents for the next 365 days of so. This new year, I decided to celebrate it in my hometown in Sumatra with my family. Instead of staying at home, I went for the celebration in a rooftop restaurant with my sister and her fiance. The Sirroco restaurant & Bistro is located at the top of Hermes Medan Hotel. Since it is located in the city center, it has a spectacular view of Medan city with fireworks from all corners of the city during NYE. My sister and I even went to the stage to dance with the performance while my sister's fiance sang a few songs just before the countdown to entertain the quite boring audience 😜.

After the celebration, we went to a cafe that has a very artistic decoration. The Kito Art Cafe has a very lovely decoration, good price and quite tasty foods. I was impressed! I ordered a Thai Tea and a Chilly Fried Noodle, a very typical Asian combination. The DJ was still playing the mix until 2.30 am in the morning although there was not so many crowd. Overall we had a good time and a great conversation!

These are photos taken in the Kito Cafe, look how beautiful the decoration!
