Went to a gig is one of the way for me to re-energized myself. I've been so struggle these few days at office. Been one of my hard days, if I am selfishly saying. I told to my friend that I need to watched one of really good gig/music event, and sing along in between stranger. One of the gig that I've been waiting for was MLDSpot Intimate Tour; 3 Cerita 1 Ruang. The artist are Kunto Aji, Eva Celia, and Jordy Waelauruw. I was so excited because I looked forward for another gig of Eva Celia since the first time I watched her perform on UrbanGig in Semarang, several months ago. As I didn't know that this concert is limited, and the pre-sale ticket need to buy online (and already sold out), so the only chance I got was to buy normal ticket price which is little bit pricey to me, seriously. I mean I know this one is intimate-gig-concept and the guest were limited, but no matter how I craved I was to see Eva's live perform; I would think twice to attend this event. Well.. priority :p 

But then I saw one of my friend's post on Path told that TraxFM Semarang was about to give 4 free tickets to this event. No need to hesitate, I just directly tried my luck! The question was so random hahaha then I replied with normal answer instead and it was an honest thought; that I had to bring my Tumblr on that gig because I used to felt thirsty after sang along. And that's it, that's all. 


In the next morning I had to go to office while it should be a day off of Vesak Day. Office regulation state that the day off has switched so we will had long weekend start from Friday. I was on purpose to listen on Trax that morning, hopefully it was my luck to be chosen as one those 4 lucky winner. Almost 9 am but there's no clue that I would be called. Then I decided to turn off my streaming because I'd like to had a call meeting with my Manager. The online streaming was suck, anyway. Right after call meeting with Manager, I checked on my Instagram and TADAAAAAA!! I got it! People from Trax FM DMed me! Hahahaha Alhamdulillah x) 


Long story short, I attend the event. I started my morning by dropped by to a coffee shop (didn't order coffee by the way since it make me sick haha), swimming, dropped at office, then off I go. I was literally alone until I met Mas Fajar from Trax FM and met new friend inside the venue, it was Mbak Kristin who also came alone. The event only provide around 100+ seats that are freely chosen. There're several seat reserved actually but you can pick yours wherever you'd like to sit. Lucky me I got high chair at the back so I can see clearly the perform, unhindered from another guests (you know I am a tiny girl) 


It was such a gooooood night. I really felt the 'intimate' as there are not plenty of people, not like big stage gig I used to watched. The event itself was held in Semarang Art Gallery, which is one favorite place in Semarang. So happy that my favorite track was played; Buka Buka Buka, Mercusuar, Pengingat, A Stranger Kind of Longing, Another You, Mother Wound, Romans 12:2 (favorite!!!), and Reason. To be honest, this is my first time listened and met Jordy Waelauruw. From my reserach, he once worked with Bayu Risa! Well I love Bayu Risa. I didn't expect to interested to his song but I am! It was such a different style *brb go to Spotify x) 


Well, it was one of my highlight on May this year, I count it as a blessing. Can't say thank you enough for TraxFM. I never thought I am so lucky. I am happy because it is the perfect timing for me, really :) God bless you, Trax FM Semarang! Looking forward to next gig, shall we?



Friday I am in love xx





Mas, sumpah? 
Once in a lifetime lho :p 


November 2016 must be the time that I would never forget. The month when Mas Rio-a very old-friend of mine from junior high, contacted me and told that he got tickets for Coldplay, A Head Full of Dreams Tour - Singapore 2017. It strike me so hard until my I lost my words and disconnected in the middle of conversation with my mom and her guest that we had at that time. I laugh when I remember that moment. It was so silly x) 

Gelap! Mbak nya yang nge fotoin jahat :( 

I actually didn't plan, but Mas Rio came with words "once in a lifetime" that really woke me up from a dead-faint-dream of mine, a list that I thought must be impossible for someone like me, which is; at least once before I die, I have to watch an international music event outside country. This might be a
Hi whats up? By the way I just finished design 1st draft of wedding invitation asked by my fellow office who is about to married this year, and I am now wide awake. I am so productive at night, its not fair. So, I open again my laptop and try to write something. Well, I spent my last weekend with Meta and Lucy in Yogyakarta. This was our second visit and we've planned this visitation earlier in February. It was me who came up with humble WhatsApp Group of two of them, randomly asking about weekend staycation. 



I've been sooooo stress at office. My pimples are come up I can't handle it, so did they! Shortly, they said yes. We decided to stay at Greenhost Boutique Hotel, and re-treat our last visit on 2009. OMG it been 8 years since our last visit! We were so young dan dekil abis! But before that, we plan to meet in Yogya directly on Saturday morning, since Lucy is now live in Surabaya. Once I arrived, we decide to visit Ullen Sentalu Museum. None of us have been visited that museum, as the location is far from the downtown. Good thing about this museum was; the visitor did not allowed to took a picture during the visitation. Tour guide will bring you stroll around the museum, then you'll focus on the museum and the collection itself. You have to pay 30K IDR per person for local and 50K for foreigner then you will divided into several group consist of 15 persons (if I'm not mistaken). After 50 minutes of museum tour, we decide to paid a visit to Beukenhof Restaurant. It placed right above the museum. 

Entrance 


TIPS: better use private car/motorcycle to get there. Many informations on internet said that you can get there by public transportation such as angkot, etc. But in fact indeed the Angkot will stop at bus stop (terminal) BUT it still halfway to go to Ullen hahaha the other choice is Ojek but I didn't see any kind of Ojek there. Choose GrabCar/GoCar/of private vehicle 


We headed to Hotel and check-in at 2 PM. On time! Thanks to Go-Car! Well I suggest to stay at Greenhost because I was curious with their concept of being "green-living/green-staying" other than that, the concept of the Hotel was pretty interesting. Although its little bit overexposed as you can see the pool from outside the Hotel, but that's OK because I didn't swim anyway hahahah


TIPS: if you plan to have a staycation trip like me and my friends in this hotel, and consist 3 person in total, make sure you consider about the budget. Hotel rules allows to have 3 person in one room with additional cost of 50% from public room-rate :) 

Someone just bought new phone with magic front cam that made us looookkkk waayy more bbbeeeaaauuutifulllll I can't help!

After clean up and had lunch Nasi Padang ter-enak-selama-weekend, we head up to the street to stroll around Brontokusuman (Prawirotaman, Suryadiningratan, Tirtodipuran) - the location in Yogya that known as "tempatnya bule" :) 


So, we had dinner in Nanamia Pizzeria in Tirtodipuran. So many thing to be catch up with Meta and Lucy. Its been a long time we didn't take a good time to update our life. Meta and Lucy are my kindergarten fellas. I knew them since the verrrryyyyy little. We separated during elementary and junior high, but universe meet us again on senior high! God bless us. Back to the place where we took a Pizza for diner, Nanamia Pizzeria. This place is sooooooooooooooo dope! The backyard open-space restaurant is soooo nailed! The lamp and ambiance was impressed me, really. We spent almost 3 hours there hahaha it was so cozy I can't handle it. The pizza is also gweeeddd! This crust pizza lover around here! Count me! x) Definitely will come back if I had time

The next day was our last day. We decide to visit TamanSari once again, in order to reminiscing the 2009 visit back then. We've tried so hard to re-create our picture in 2009 so we can compare hahah but since the day was so hot and we are extremely tired, we decided to check out earlier and went back home. 

Re-create our picture back then in 2009

We said goodbye to Lucy at the bus stop. She head to the East, Meta and I head back to the North

Face the office things in the next day! Salute!
