Twenty Three

Wait guys, did I just make a post about my birthday here? Oh, wait... it was last year! And now I am twenty three! 

Time flies reallyyy fast when you're enjoying every minute of it. There were plenty of memories and surprises since the beginning of 2014, now we're closer to a new year again (like two months to go!). My birthday this year was kinda special. Yesterday it's Jesrisoles first time joined a local event at Kuta Beach. I was in charge to take care of our booth for whole day. The night before my birthday I was so grumpy, later I knew that I got PMS (yes, girl. I was dealing with PMS, on my birthday, how cool is that). It was really exhausting day, but I can't stop smiling receieved birthday messages from friends at the same time (thank you guys for the wishes!), plus, I earned some money on my birthday, ehehehe. Long story short, the event went pretty well, I got a chance to meet some new local friends too (thanks for coming by yesterday friends!), and also enjoying a beautiful sunset scenery! I was so thankful for a dear helping partner yesterday on the event, Nini! She's a really nice person. We just met each other on that day and we had a nice conversation. Thank you so much Nini for your help, we couldn't make it without you!
Thank you so much Nini, you are such a great partner!

It was almost 11:00pm when we arrived at home. My mom picked me up and I found she bought a cheese cake for me! Despite of the tiredness, I was very happy because a birthday cake was on my lap and can't wait to eat it up! We didn't have time to cute the cake and blow the candles yesterday, so I just blew the candles today! I was very happy, my belly is the happiest one.

The... best... cheese cake... EVER! The bottom part is brownie cake!

Well, I have something to say actually, I even have the draft post that I wrote a week before haha. I was planning to post it on my birthday. But I changed my mind to save it for another right time. It's a story that deserve to be told. I'll give you a hint: Something that I decided to make it official. Aha, you guys probably guess what it is already? No? Please staying here with me for the next story. Have a great Sunday everyone, stay awesome!

20 Facts About Me

After my dear friend shared her #20FactsAboutMe on her blog, now it's my turn. I have posted this on Instagram, but I thought it would be fun to share it here too. I changed some points and it still a real fact about myself. So here you go:

1. I'm wearing glasses since eight, trying to wear contact lenses now even sometimes I feel weird about my round face and uneven eyes. However, thanks to makeup! 

2. I feel my best while I'm wearing comfy tee, jeans, and flatshoes.

3. I can't drive and I don't have driver's license. But I do ride motorcycle and I have license for that.

4. I have a big big big crush with Hello Kitty. She had received rumours about what she really is. You know what, I don't care either she is a girl or a cat, my love for Kitty is real.

5. I hate yellow colored veggies/fruits. I hate pineapple, I hate durian, I hate jackfruit, I hate corn. But I love lemons, bananas and mangoes! Wait, is mango yellow or orange colored? Never mind.

6. Grumpy faces happen to me when I don't find my coffee in the morning. Lately, iced brewed coffee from McDonalds is my favorite. It's cheap, it's hot weather-friendly and it's iced coffee.

It might looked little bit watery, but it tasted niceee

7. I don't go to amusement park. If I do, I only ride merry-go-round... and flying elephants.

8. I quit drinking soda since high school, I guess. Now I'm trying to cut drinking Teh Botol.

9. I always want to dye my hair! Once I bought a hair color foam from Etude House, because it doesn't cause a big damage for my hair. I was planning to dye my hair when I got back to Guangzhou. I was so excited until guilty feelings came to me for not telling Mom about my plan (my Mom said I supposed to be proud of my black hair, and Raissa said so hehe). Long story short, I confessed to my Mom and she was mad and warn me never dare to try this again (':

10. I love everything that goes with cookies' n cream or Oreo things. Ice cream, milkshake, chocolate, cakes, anything!

11. Wednesday is my favorite day in week.

12. I'm totally a family-girl. I love hanging out with my family, Sunday is our day. We usually go for casual lunch or dinner after church. Little informations about my family members: A serious yet humorous man Dad ever, a Mom who loves to laugh until she cries, and also two young brothers who like to share awkward and silly jokes.

 Old picture taken by my granny last December. We were almost tanned!

13. I'm a typical blood type A and also proud to be an INFJ.

14. I love grey and black for my outfits. But I try to wear bright color sometimes to cheer up my mood.

15. My money mostly goes for books and coffees... also bubble drinks.

16. I used to work at Starbucks for seven months. Now I work from home, running an online shop business, tutoring Chinese, and helping Mom to organize her culinary business.

17. This is how Andreas describes me: tough, organized, grumpy, a cry-baby, "chubby belly". (Really honey? Chubby belly? Really?)

18. My favorite movies all the time: The Devil Wears Prada, Freedom Writers, Julie and Julia.

19. I am an ugly when I got really sick. I don't want to go anywhere except my bed.

20. I always believe one of verses in Bible: A man reaps what he sows.

5 Pictures of Tuesday 07

 (1) It was my first time hit the gym in the early morning. I finally took a big decision to take a membership for gym class two months ago if you guys wondering. I was sweating much and feeling so gooood on the entire day. That's the best way to begin my day!

(2) After gym, I deserve a cup of nice morning coffee. Excelso the only coffeeshop they have in the plaza building so I don't have other choice. I was about to order iced latte but the breakfast menu that I was going to order comes with free coffee, so... yayy for that! This is my first robusta house blend coffee from Excelso. I was thinking to drink it black. However, a little bit sugar won't hurt.

(3) And here you go the breakfast! Sorry for not-so-appetite picture, trust me they taste nice. The baked tomato almost melted in my mouth! 

(4) This picture was taken few weeks ago, also in Tuesday. This is me while working in Jesrisoles (remember the culinary business that we run last year?). I take the responsible for social media promotions, so I take lots of pictures for daily updates. Please have a look of our risoles house business on Instagram, @jesrisolesbali. Come visit us when you are around!

(5) It has been a long time, say hello to our dear furry friend! She is almost 11 years old (it's 77 in human years!), she loves to play hide and seek with you, she loves cereal for breakfast, and we love her very much!

Monday Favorite Links

Happy Monday everyone. Another great links that I found and I hope they will inspire you through the day. Well, I mean for the next day, because I meant to post this in the morning but yeah whatever. You can read them before you sleep and feel good on the next morning. Have a great night and sleep well.

1. "Less is More: Tips on Living Minimal" by Pale Lily
I have been thinking about "simplicity" lately in every aspects of my life, and my mind was blown by reading this beautiful post. Everyone of us could live a simple life, but we normally turn it to a complicated one instead (I said normally, because.. it is!). I don't know why since when I feel like that I take my life as a competition. That makes me sometimes I am afraid that I am not good enough to be a better person. When I see people do better than I do, I start to compete. Sounds bad I know, but thanks God I realized everyone owns different life. If I won't live my life, then who will. Stop comparing myself is definitely my first step for living minimal.

Anyway, please do visit Pale Lily, Sofia writes beautifully in every post. A plus for the clean layout.

2. "10 Things You Need to Learn to Start Living The Life of Your Dreams" by Grease and Glamour
There's only one word to describe this post: fancy. I am not a girl who really likes or eager to travel around the world, but I always find in such an amazing way when people learn about life through a journey that they take alone. Again, it still related to living minimal, if you guys take a decision to live your dreams, let's doing these 10 things together. Scare yourself enough, push yourself enough, then let your future surprises you.

3. "How to Breath" by Zenhabits
In case you suddenly forget how to take a breath, this post is for you.

4. "Healthy Iced Coffee Protein Shake" by Simply Taralynn
I have a seriously relationship with coffee (in case you don't know about it). Since I haven't get my coffee maker yet, I always go for instant coffee and that's not really good. I am so glad to find this genius recipe from Taralynn (known as Undressed Skeleton). It's great recipe because I had my very first protein powder already and I can't wait to mix it with coffee. Sounds like this will be my next favorite drinks, we will see.

5. "Breakfast Hacks: 17 Ways You're Eating Breakfast Wrong"
My dear friend Sastika sent me this link, because she knows me that well about breakfast *wink*. Some of them I've been following right, the rest of them just blow my mind. And you're so wrong when you don't have your breakfast in a day.
