Home

Halo halo,

I've actually been in such a blogging mood these past couple of days it's weird, and should catch you all up on everything that's happened up to today :):):):):)
Am actually in such a good mood rn and I have no idea why lel
Oml, before Opa died he used to have like dozens of alarms and radios that he'd set up all over his house to like structure his day, etc. Now we have quite a few of them and they keep going off at random times and omg it's so creepy. Was literally just standing alone in the dark downstairs when all of a sudden one of the radios just went off.

ANYWAYS I got back home on the morning of the 7th after getting approx <1 hour sleep on the plane, due to both my newfound (not actually that newfound but whatev) fear of flying and the fact that I don't usually sleep till like 3 anyway and the time difference meant that it was only around 4 in Jakarta when we landed. Was so tired when I got home that I pretty much went straight to sleep, and slept for basically the whole day/night.


Birthday Dinner
Had my 19th birthday dinner the next day at Thyme 2 at Sofitel. Beforehand I went over to Diem's to get ready, and stayed the night there. The dinner was really good, especially since I hadn't seen anyone in over a month and got to catch up on everything. Diem also made this vegan dark chocolate cake that she'd had for her birthday last year (while she was vegan) and it was actually amaze




French onion soup for entree

Chicken chasseur lol got judged so hard by the waiter when I couldn't pronounce chasseur

Bracelet from dm :))))))))))


Brunch + Dinner
Since I was staying over at Diem's and Dylan was staying over at Caleb's we decided to go out to brunch at Bare Bones Society. Can't remember exactly what I ordered but it was definitely up there with the best brunches I've had. Afterwards we went back to mine for a bit before having an early dinner at Oishii (which I apparently took no photos of). Was actually planning on staying over at Diem's again that night except realised that I had a dentist appointment the next morning lol.



Diem's again
After my dentist appointment I bussed straight back to Diem's where I ended up staying for two nights. I swear I basically live there now lololololololol
On Monday she had uni so Thanh and I went with her and sat in on her maths lecture for approx 10 minutes. After that Thanh and I met up with Alice and just waited for Diem to finish her lecture before going to lunch at Shouk.

Apparently took 0 photos yesterday lol but went to lunch/bowling with Paul.

Jakarta 2

Hiiiii,

I've been back home for about a week now and I realised that I haven't finished posting about Jakarta yet, so here's what happened on the rest of our trip :)
I covered most of the trip in my last post, so this is really just what happened in our last few days there.


Fei-fei's wedding
On the 2nd of Jan, my cousin had her Jakarta wedding ceremony! She'd actually had her church wedding in Surabaya a few days earlier, so in Jakarta it was just a reception. The dinner was held at Hotel Mulia in Senayan, which was so so pretty. For the first half of the night everyone was pretty much just walking round the venue to take photos lolol. They'd done most of the speeches/etc in Surabaya so there were only a couple before dinner started. For dinner they had this huge buffet with literally like every food you could think of. There was also a dessert buffet which was amaze.






This was actually the fam at Surabaya


Pre Birthday
On the 3rd I went out to Grand Indonesia with Emily and a couple of her friends, and we just spent the day shopping and had lunch at this Italian restaurant.
It was actually Aunty Lin's birthday, and since my birthday was the next day we went out for sort of a joint birthday dinner at the Satay House in Senayan. Had soto betawi and it was so good omg, probably the best soto betawi I've had.
After dinner everyone went back to Tanjung for cake :)





Birthday!!!
On the 4th I turned 19 :)))))))))))))))) In the morning I went to Taman Anggrek with Emily where we had lunch at Fish&Co (lol 3rd time). After lunch we went across the road to Central Park where we spent a couple of hours shopping. Also found this shop that sold cronut and bought some to satisfy my cronut cravings.
That night we went out for dinner again at Pesto, before moving all our stuff out of Tanjung and into Kusuma since our flight back to Singapore was the next morning.


TA








Singapore
On the Morning of the 5th we flew back to Singapore, where we stayed for a night. 
I think I mentioned last Jakarta post how Daniel was going on about wanting to go to Fish&Co for pretty much our entire trip. By the time we left Jakarta I'd actually been 3 times and meanwhile Daniel was still going on lololololololololololololololololollolol. Anyways, there's a Fish&Co at Singapore airport so he finally got a chance to go. Ended up going the next day at the airport as well, bringing my total visits up to 5 (3 days in a row heh)
We actually did like nothing while we were in Singapore. Spent the entire day at Villa Marina, and literally the only two photos I have of our day in Singapore are of my fish lol ily fish&co



On the night of the 6th we flew back home, and arrived on the 7th. This entire trip was actually so good, even though looking back I really didn't do a whole lot lol. Since I got back I've done quite a bit, and will probably be posting all about that soon. Also kinda want to do a really belated resolutions post lols shall get round to that

2014

Helllo,
I've been thinking about doing a 2014 recap post, but rather than saying anything about any of the photos I might just put together a collection of photos of things I've done this year. It's so weird- as I'm looking through some of these photos they seem like such a long time ago, although in my head the year seemed to go by so so fast. I still can't believe it's 2015 already, when honestly it still feels a bit like 2013.

Anywayssss, here's a photo recap of the year :)
