New year, new header!

You read that right, a new header, yaiy!

With all the advertisement about that stupid “new year new you”, I felt like still wanting a new thing for new year, and definitely not “new me” because what’s wrong with the old me? Geez.

So I was thinking to change the whole theme for my blog, but that would be a lot of work and because I’m lazy, I only modified the header. That header only costed me 2 hours of browsing fonts and colors. I decided to go with turquoise because it has been my favorite color these past 5 years. I still love yellow though and I hope they works together.

Much blogwalking

2013 has given me a great start for blogging. Because of my laziness of writing a post, I blogwalked more often and found out so many interesting blogs. Here are my favorites:

  1. A memory Bliss. I love how Bebe writes about her husband, her life, her passion of photography (and I tell you she’s good!) and her journey to finally move to Sweden with her husband. I enjoyed reading her blog from the very beginning. Her photos are high-res and well edited and she posts some good recipe once in a while complimented her her good food photography skill. =)
  2. Me and my stories. Rifi was working in Singapore and met the love of her life, Bayu online and moved half way across the globe to Arkansas. She’s witty, funny and has a weird sense of humor (which mostly I got). I always love to read romantic and dramatic stories from the perception of a strong woman, and Riffi is one of them. =)
  3. Tantri’s little corner. I’m not sure whether that is the right title of the blog but I thought I read it somewhere. Tantri has a dream to travel Europe (just like me!) and she’s an Enid blyton’s fan (just like me again!), which got me reading her posts on and on and on because they’re just as interesting as the writer herself.
  4. I do the Journey. I never get her name, but I remember she always write about Utin, her nick for her husband. So everytime I got a notification about her post, in my mind went “It’s Utin’s story” so yeah, I never got to know her name, but I love to read her posts. She started the blog as a journal of her wedding, but she kept writing after the wedding itself (thanks god for that) and now the posts are not only about wedding but stuffs that seem boring but amazingly interesting. She writes everyday’s stuffs that everyone would like to read! How cool is that! =)
  5. The Musing Bubbles. Wulan gave up explaining how to pronounce Wulan to Americans so she just went with Wu, and I think that sounds cool. She named her blog bubbles because it’s a nick for her kid. I started to read more of her blogs after one certain of post about marriage and I must say, I love reading it, maybe as much as she loves Chicago.

That’s all for now, I hope you guys will blogwalk there and enjoy the writings as much as I did. I still have a lot blogwalking to do and maybe will post some more later. Yeah, all the blogs I love is those women talking about lovey dovey life, and hey, that’s just what perfect life is. =)

One more thing!

I decided to commit for “Post a week” resolutions for 2013. I hope I can come up with interesting posts every week, and most importantly, the diligence to write. (Yeah lately I’ve been very lazy).

Thank you for reading and cheers for life!


My first letter in 2013

I woke up this morning with a bucket beside me. I saw a digital clock, it was 6 in the morning. My head was spinning like crazy and I saw two red lines on my right wrist and one on the top of my breast. I walked out of the bedroom and realize that the furniture was rearranged. There were confetti all over the floor. Beer cans were all inside the recycle bags, while the Smirnoff bottle was empty.

SHIT. The last time I remembered seeing that bottle was still half empty. But anyone could finish that bottle. There were about 10 people last night. I remember somebody was throwing up. I remember I was blabbering about “The last time I was drunk, I called this guy” which actually happened like 8 years ago and I always talk the same thing everytime I’m drunk.

I had fun last night, at least the times that I remember. I remember counting down and screamed “Happy New Year!” I remember I hugged people, kissed my boyfriend. After that, everything was blur. Who drank the last king cup? Who won the grand prize of the movie ticket? Who scatter the beers on the beer pong table? And who puked?

I saw myself on the bathroom’s mirror, SHIT I slept with my make up on. This is a big NO NO. So I washed my face and went back to sleep. I woke up an hour later just to run to the bathroom and successfully threw up twice. I slept again for another hour, this time a very well sleep and woke up to do my first morning prayer ritual.

Then I went out to the living room, apparently already cleaned and talked to my roommates and fill in my lost memory. He didn’t fill a lot but later that night when my roommate’s boyfriend came and showed me the video from last night, I became  understood.

I still looked stupid drunk and I didn’t know why I kept doing it. There is no moral of this story. Don’t hope for that. This letter is written in the first day of the new year when people usually write their resolutions and do quality things, while I’m in front of the TV all day, waiting for my hangover to fade away. I don’t do resolutions anymore, I don’t know why. I don’t mean anything but once I stop having resolutions, all my dreams were starting to come true. However I have one resolutions this year that is very simple. To do 100 sit-ups every day in 2013. If I could do that, I would buy myself something very expensive as a gift. =)

Anyway, there are two things I would like to say…

One, my boyfriend took care of me. Both when I was drunk and when I was horribly having hangover. I love him so freaking much.

Two, my boyfriend bought me a ticket to Europe. Is there any words could describe how grateful I am to have him in my life? I’m so gonna spam this blog with my European plans!!!

So, Happy New Year 2013, everyone! I apologize for the no-quality first post and for the bragging but seriously, I’M GOING TO PARIS!!!!!
