Collect Memories

Wow, it’s been more than 5 MONTHS since the last time I post on this blog?
*hush hush dust*

Ok, I’m not gonna give some lame excuses like busy and such.

But lately, writing in Instagram story feels more fun than in blog because I can interact directly with the readers. And more rewarding too, because statistic shows that my Instagram story reader number for a day equals to my blog reader   number for a year!

Anyway, it still feels good tho to re-read my blog post.

I just reminded about it when I shared about our superwoman domestic helper, #MbakTransformer in Instagram story. I looked up my blog archive about housemaid and glad I once wrote down my past experiences so not only I can learn from it, but my readers too.

My life is such an open book, anyone can read and learn from it.

So I told myself, hey, why not keep writing and documenting my life, no matter how trivial it is, no matter how short or long it is, no matter how few the blog reader compared to the Instagram story viewer is.

Because I supposed to write not to impress, but to capture memories, thoughts, and everything that comes to my attention, so I can revisit it anytime, just like old times.

Collect memories, not things? Yes, please.

Well here are some memory collections from January to June 2019:


-       Got ankle injury after fell down at home’s toilet and it brought a blessing a disguise: during bedrest I have plenty of time to share on my Instagram story, started from a follower’s question about financial. One thing to another, came to a topic about our struggle in the first years of marriage. I gave it a title: The Real Marriage Life. Since so many people dm me about their marriage and struggles too, I made an additional account @therealmarriagelife to answer similar questions.


-       Held our very first Couple Workshop in KawanMain where we shared about our lessons learned in marriage life about understanding family tree, managing expectation & reality, assertive communication, and MBTI. What supposed to be only 2 hours turned out to be 4 hours :)
-       I also held semi-private MBTI Assessment based on request of my follower from Sumatera with an instant preparation in a sudden. Thank God it turned out very well :)
-       Invited by Bekraf for Orbit Event, where I shared my knowledge about investment as acquired from VC Unlocked 500 Startups in UC Berkeley last year and enriched with my own experience in startup investments.  
-       Must-waited event of the year: Big Bad Wolf Books 2019. Like previous years, I helped them again in distributing VIP invitations to my friends and followers.

-       Host iftar with my family in our home with the background of Christmas tree, as we all live in harmony :)
-       Beside iftar with family, we also did iftar with our extended family from ex and also with our small town house neighborhood. Love it.
-       FINALLY MADE MY DREAM COME TRUE: CELEBRATE OUR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY IN SANTORINI !!! Of course this one deserves one special post. I’m now finishing full episode video of our trip. Will recap it here soon! Meanwhile, you can check the videos on my IGTV here :)


-       Right after our 14 Days Greece Trip to Santorini, Naxos, Mykonos, Piraeus and Athens, we went straight to my mom’s hometown Bangka Island in Sumatera for celebrating Idul Fitri with my family.
-       I lost count on how many happiness I’ve got during this month because I enjoyed it so much in real life that I didn’t care to share it much on social media. PLUS, I have a tendency to keep our beautiful pics for myself quite some time before I finally post it, just like the pic on this blog header, hehe.

Ok I think that’s pretty much sum up my memories during the first semester of 2019. This post has been on my draft for a couple of weeks, and just now I got the time to finish it in the middle of dizziness of studying Masoretic in class, LOL. Guess I should document AND post it more often so I could share it with you all.

How was your first semester of 2019? Hope it was great too!

End of June 2019,
