Bartega Painting Class 02/05/19

Hello, everyone! I am sad say that this year I didn't have birthday photoshoot. I have my own tradition of doing birthday photoshoot just for fun and post it on my birthday no matter what and no matter how I feel. This year I didn't because many things that have happened just too overwhelming I guess haha (bitter laugh)
Anyways, I am now 23 and I feel so old already. I thought I'd be married by this age but I am soooo single now. But a week before my birthday, my best friend and I joined one-day painting class held by Bartega. It was placed at WeWork Astra Tower. I knew this one-day class because it was once held at my work place so I thought I'd give it a try and it was sooo much fun!
I usually just hang out at the mall or stay in on day off but this is a really nice activity. You don't need any basic skill or tools. They will give you the steps from which object to paint, which color first, etc. They will also give demonstration from the start and they will tutor you. You just have to come and enjoy it. It costed IDR350,000 (US$24.30) for painting class only or IDR450,000 (US$31.24) with wine sipping.
Beside the fact that I like drawing, it is such a good way to release stress. For a moment, I can focus on doing something I like without having to think that I have the clean up the tools and stuff after that--I'm so lazy at cleaning.
I think I'm gonna join this class once a month or maybe try other classes such as pottery or cooking or others.
Actually this is my first EVER painting!

Sparks Fly

what is with you and sunflowers he asks

i point to the field of yellow outside
sunflowers worship the sun i tell him
only when it arrives do they rise
when the sun leaves
they bow their heads in the mourning
that is the sun does to those flowers
it's what you do to me

- the sun and her flower

 Hello, everyone! Happy belated International Women's Day!
I took these pictures more than a year ago. I was trying out my new beret at that time. Now I have no idea where the beret is. I took those pictures in my sleeping dress and I am actually wearing that now.
It is past 3 pm here but I am still in my pajama dress. Guess, I'm really enjoying my day off.
Have you ever been struggling on spending your day off? There are so many things I wanna do on my day off. I wanna clean my room, I wanna go out, I wanna read, I wanna draw, I wanna blog, I have to do laundry, I have to go grocery shopping but by the time you're thinking about it, time has been flying and it's suddenly almost 6 in the evening and your day off just ends.
That happens to me all the time!
Have a great week ahead, people! <3 br="">

Bali (Part 2) 17/12/18

 Let's continue on the second part of my Bali post, shall we? The hotels where I stayed in were actually really good. I always prefer leisure hotel/resorts than the business ones (of course). The gardens and parks around the hotels were all pretty and it makes me wanna go back there. How long has it been? It is almost around 2 months since my latest Bali visit. Please take me back there now!!!
I went to Cat Cafe in Ubud that I visited when I was an intern in Bali. That has been my fave cat at the cafe named Candy. He is half maine coon and half angora breed. The reason he is my fave is because when I first visited there, he always came to me. He is so fluffy and cute. I wanna have my own cat but it is not allowed in my place.
I also visited my friend in Bali and met her baby girl. She is so cute like a doll and I really wanna take her as souvenir. The day before I left back to Jakarta, I visited Water Blow at Nusa Dua. It needed patience to see the water blowing.
And the last picture is--of course--the famous Tegalalang Rice Terrace.
Hopefully I can go back to Bali this year.
