How's Life?

Hi, all!

I know I’ve been abandoning this blog  for a long time. It’s not I’m too busy to write. But I kinda don’t have the subject to write plus I don’t have much photos to share with you. Before, I wanted this blog to be a some kind of ‘event related’ blog, turns out I don’t attend as many  event as I hope I would be. Though, I named it ‘journal’ which I can write everything I want like my daily life, ‘diary’ posts, or anything that related to journaling ended up I didn’t take proper photos for it. Ugh, so this is what they called writer's block.

Maybe, you guys can suggest me any kind of post you want to read from me? Oh, actually I write a journal and I decorate it which I update every week. Is it interesting for you to see? I would consider it.

A little life update. It’s been 11 months since me & my sis opened up a cafĂ© which we named it “WICKED COLD” why? We make the ice cream with Liquid Nitrogen which make the ice cream colder than the other. Wicked, like the cold is so cold. Hope you get it ;) Well, the business is growing slow I don’t know if it’s because the market there isn’t high or what, because there were so many restos closed in the end. We give promos, adding some other menus than ice cream & frozen yogurt, and those. Maybe we’re a lil bit ambitious took 3 years straight rent and didn’t think about the pros and cons. Me & my sis found out that we two got a free personality which we hate doing the same thing, same routines and being at the same place for a long time. So, we end up boring going to the same place like everyday. We need a ‘constantly moving’ business like online business where we can go everywhere we want, still replying those messages, and sent them the day after. We realized that running cafes or restos business is such a BIG RESPONSIBILITY. But I’m glad, now I learned how people struggling their business, I know how drained those F&B’s workers, I learned to be more patient because there’s a lot of weird customers, and how much money they spent just to promote their business. I hope me & my sis can survived this field. HAHA. 

I thought, that there are some people that born to be in business field, but some aren’t. Building offline business needs patient, strategist brain, and an extrovert personality. It’s like passion. Now I don’t  think that I’m tht kind of person. Thank God, that we finally learned something from it.  But it’s good to ever experienced it, I thank my uncle a lot lot lot to spent such money for us. And God told me to ‘JUST DO YOUR BEST’ cause everything is already done and run. SO I HAVE TO!

Until next time, hope you’re still with me!

For procrastinators, there’s always today in another day. Raise your hands if you’re with me.

So, here are my ultimate few tips for fighting it. Hope it helps J

[] Plan your activities

Having a planner helps me a lot. And also, I do decorate mine. Plus, making a key color really helps you to organize which activities/plans that has to be prioritized. The point is, when you know what you have to do each days, you’ll be get ready to do it. E.g. on Wednesday, I need to deep clean my bathroom, so on Tuesday, you’ll buy some things you need for cleaning up, or sleep earlier. Tips from me, plan every the end of the week.

[] We don’t know what will happens tomorrow

THIS.IS.IMPORTANT. We don’t know what will happen next. It might be there’s important event we need to attend or any force majeur we can’t avoid even sudden bad situations. If your plans really really important, please do it now, do it that day. E.g. Today you have to booked a flight for next week, but you ended up booked it the next day and it was already sold.

[] Mom’s yelling

THIS.IS.THE.SECOND.IMPORTANT who wants to hear Mom’s grumblings? No one wants. Count me in!

[] Do it today!

“Just do it”

Biblichor took me back to 1 year ago as I experienced the first great book sale. As for me, books are lifetime adventures. You can re-visit your most favorite places in a second, or run into your favorite persons forever. Because they kept all of our dreams inside. They kept all the distance near, they offer you great explorations all around the world, and they brought surreal and imaginary world right upon your eyes.

I'm so happy that I got a chance to be their VIP customer. This year, they gave VIP tickets for new members (you can register yourself through their website on their pre-sale date) or by sending your blog/vlog account to their email and they sort you. So, I took option 2 as I can't re-regist to their web :( too bad. But it's okay.

BBW held from April, 21st 2017 'til May, 2nd 2017 with total 280 hours non-stop! WOW! What a great offer, rite? They really serves bookworms well. They had Mrs. Susi, Indonesia's Marine Minister for the opening speech. 

Because I came too early here, I can't pass the main door until the ceremony end, so I took the side one. As I walked in, they surprised me with a lot of food trucks and grand kid's play area! I thought, "What an amazing improvement!" yes, they got it all to calm down your hunger and supply your kids boredom. This year's BBW took about 3-4 halls to support your demands.

Then, I headed towards the heaven! Booooks! I welcomed with the "sorting area" where people can sort out their books, or just take a rest for a while. Tho, BBW facilitate sorting area, but I don't know why people likes to sort their books here and there (oops, including me), maybe it's because of well, to save their time.

and, there was a lot of books.... boooks.... books....

Cheap imported books of course. Start from IDR 30k to about IDR 400k and also there's a lot of kids activity stuffs too!

Plus, you can find all your favorite genres of books! They have it all, ganks!

 This section is JOURNAL SECTION. Ultra cute journals! 

All genres of books got different color sections and tags. There's non fiction, fiction, romance, general, Young Adults, with sub-genre from References, Cookery, Design, Architecture, Science, Graphic Novels, Kids, and so on. The main genre hanged upon the ceiling, so people can find 'em easily. And the sub one, was on the 'table'. 

You can find various visitors from kids to adults.

One thing that disappoints me the most, was it's such a packed VIP PREVIEW SALE. We supposed to experienced the privilege to be the VIP holder. I thought, they should've distribute the limited tickets. Not everyone who registered could be the vip holder. I queued along the line to the cashier for 3 hours. Tho they got fast track, but it's only for Mandiri's customer or you can sign up for the credit card and get the facility. But I appreciated their fast action to apologies and covered up all the cashier queue mess the next day. So, we don't need to queue for hours. Yes, they still need to learn and discover customers demands and needs. But this year's improvement was highly appreciated.

GOOD JOB BBW TEAM! Can't wait to see you next year! Looking forward to it.

The Low Maintainance Friend

I found this tweet and bam it hit me!
I can’t describe what type of friend I was before. And, well, this one suit me well. What is Low-Maintainance friends? Based on her tweet, it was an easy going type of friend. An ignorant one. Though you rarely talked to them, nor you asked them to going out, or forget their birthdays, not throwing any special acts, or give them presents. Well they’re the same in the heart for you.

I’m pretty much that one type of friend. Even if you forget me for a long time or you talk to me when in need, as long as you didn’t torch my lighter I’m the same person you used to know. Just a little bit awkward sometimes. I’m an ISFJ, I’m also sad after all if you abandoned me. But as an ignorant B, I can take it pretty good. For such a reserved person like me, I won’t take the first step to talk to you unless I have to in particular conditions. Well, it’s hard to get along with some people when they don’t open up with me at first or having the same personality as me (which is reserved). It’s like awkward vs awkward. the result will be silence in the air. But I can become such a talkative and cheerful and loyal and I would buy anything for you, if only you moved my heart just a lil bit. Nonetheless, I’m learning not to attached to someone I barely know because everytime I did, they broke my heart or I’m taking it way too emotional when they not treat me like the way I did.

There once a quote : “I usually give people more chances than they deserve, but once I’m done. I’m done.” That’s exactly what I’m trying to tell you. Once I’m done, you’re not on the list anymore. I forgive you but I’m not making another relation with you anymore. Moreover for some plebeian peoples or guys which really can’t handle and take place their cheesy humors or words. I’m so fed up. So please, know your words, humors, or lines when you talk to people cause not everyone can take it.

Guys, did you have that one kind of friend? A low maintainance friend. Keep em close, cause you’re blessed.
