Five months before our wedding in Jakarta, me and danna-san finally found a time to do a pre-wedding photoshoot. At the end of November 2019, we gathered in Tokyo.

I started watching Ghibli movies during my time studying in Japan around 2015. My first movie was Mononoke Hime, followed by Spirited Away. Personally, I think Ghibli stories were sort of deep and often unusual. Certainly not categorized as "anime for kids" only. Studio Ghibli, of course, is well respected in their home country, Japan.… Continue reading The World of Ghibli Jakarta

後いう間に２０１６に別れた。Compared to previous 2015 and 2014, I can say that 2016 was a quiet one. 2014 ; after extensive consideration of thinking what did I want to do with my life, finally decided to 留学 in Japan (best life decision by far). 2015 was the year I lived my dreams. 東京の生活が最高だったね！さらに一人具らしいのおかげ多くの大切なことを大変勉強になりました。I enjoyed and learned so much about… Continue reading 2016 // 2017

Starting from little things like wake up early in the morning and do routine morning exercise, strict healthy eating, or as simple as posting regular article on blogs.
