4 Best Junk Food I've Ever Had

Even though we all know that junk food is not that good, I always have a special part for junk food in my heart at least once a month lol. I'd love to have junk food in my special day, such as birthday for example. And if I ever get married, I hope my friends would get my fave junk food on my bachelorette party. I also must be happy if my wedding menu is my fave junk food!

And here I'll tell you about my favorite junk food!

umm... yes I did collage the pictures by myself!

1) Wendy's Frost
I had never taste Wendy's before, in early 2014 I was in the middle of something in Fx Sudirman with my friends (we were still attend university back then, so we have a very limited money ahaha) and we confused about what to eat there since most of eating places in Fx serve expensive menu. Wendy's is the only junk food restaurant in Fx, so we decided to eat there. My friends recommended me to order Wendy's signature ice cream called frost ice cream. They kept telling me that it was the best ice cream they had. And yes, I agree with that. I even think that Wendy's frost is way better than Baskin Robbin or Haagen Dazs.

2) A&W Root Beer with Float
I love root beer for sure! Since it's the only halal beer even though it's not a real beer, it's just a coke lol. I've enjoyed other root beer in other restaurant (forgot the brand) and some root beers in supermarket such as Bickfords Old Style etc. But, A&W Root Beer with Float is still my favorite. 

3) Burger King Mushroom Burger
I used to think that a normal burger such as cheese burger is the best. I do not think that burger will still remain good after added with other ingredients. That's why I used to always order a normal cheese burger whenever I came to Burger King. But in the middle of 2014, I was out with my friends in Burger King and they order me a mushroom burger and wow that my best burger ever since.

4) McDonald Fries
WHO DOESN'T LOVE IT? I'm lovin it! The most expensive instant fries I bought in the supermarket or the any other expensive fries I order in every other restaurant still can't beat McD fries. I wonder how the hell does McD make it. I'd like my fries original without any seasoning such as barbeque. Just the salty fries alone :)

And also, junk food is cheap ahaha so how could I not like it?

Facing Hard Times

I always feel like I am really lucky. I never had any major hard times. I have a great life and enjoy every second of it. But something happened in 2013, a few days before I am turning 20, I got a health issue and had to deal with it for months. I guess that was my first. In the beginning of 2015, here we come to the final year of uni. I think 8th semester is enough unless we did something else important and useful, but I am not doing any so I better leave uni asap. Thesis/ final assignment process was a really hard journey. Long story short, I finished it on time.

Graduated (not officially yet), I felt miserable for the first time in my life. There was a moment I thought I need to go to a therapist because it feel like I am not mentally stable. I am not sure whether I am depressed or too dramatic? During my hard times, I did not like to meet people. I was a real strict, I rejected a lot of hang out invitations. I realized it gets worse when I started to not being happy when my closed ones ask how my life's going. I feel intimidated due to the reason I can't explain. But they kept telling me that they love me no matter what. Again, I feel bad for myself.

I told myself to stay in the present and feel grateful. My close friends told me that they are confused why do I keep feeling miserable sometimes (they do not know that it isn't 'sometimes', but it's 'everytime'). They see my life as a nice and stable life. My office mates who's mostly older than me told me their struggles when they were young. They said that I am so lucky that I do not have to face a bitter life like they did, but I can't get this feeling out of my head.

I don't know if it is just a phase or should I do a big change. But one thing I learned, so it is how it feels like to become an adult. So complicated.  Last Wednesday, I decided to take a day off from the office and let myself go back to university.  It is very nice to come back for a while and meet my friends there. But most importantly, I finally got a chance to meet my parents since I kept dreaming about them lol. I got a lot of presents from my friends, it somehow makes me sad that I can not attend their graduation next month to give them presents by myself due to office hours. Here are some snaps in my graduation.

ibu & ayah
with my scholarship sponsors, Ibu Mien and two madams from Australian and New Zealand Association (ANZA) Jakarta.

close friends since freshman year and still counting. we're taking different majors anyway, not a 'classmates gank'. i took my graduation dress off because the weather was so hot!

this person is one of my 'thoughts box' during my hard times. thank you for listening to my weird thoughts and respond it.
I did not really looking forward to graduation. I did not see anything special with graduation event. I did not buy or make any kebaya, I used my mom's old kebaya and kain songket instead. I was too lazy to going shopping. I did not use any make up artist, thanks God I get a nice skin, so even though I did not use much make up I still look okay lol. I did not sleep in the hotel, I went to Bogor right from Jakarta. I did not even get those graduation dress and hat by myself, my friend did it for me since we could only take it on work day, and I couldn't go to Bogor because I was working.

Such a disgrace and ungrateful little bitch.
A sentence which I choose to describe myself in most of my time in 2015. I thought I was going through the biggest storm in my life so far and I was not really good at facing it. I kept asking God oh why do You let me suffer? But deep down I know that it's a lesson for me and who knows in the future I'll face another bigger storm. I thank God and say sorry since I realize that it makes me stronger. But still, I don't buy "Badai Pasti Berlalu" quotes, so I have to think another way to enjoy the storm anyway.

And oh, this post is getting too personal. So, bye!

Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz

Two weeks ago, my friend reminded me about this scene when Klaus left Victoria at the altar. Okay it is another scene from How I Met Your Mother again. Please don't judge me as a fanatic one, but it has a lot of very very very great scene and super nice script. I couldn't help to post about it again.

--------------------

(I deleted some funny script to make it more focus)

Ted: Victoria seems like a great girl. Why wouldn't you want to marry her?

Klaus: Ach, okay, Victoria is wunderbar (wonderful). There is a word in German: Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz. And the closest translation would be... "Lifelong Treasure of Destiny." 

And Victoria is wunderbar, but she is not my Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz. She is my Beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand, you know? 

It means... "the thing that is almost the thing that you want... but it's not quite." Das ist Victoria to me.

Ted: How do you know she's not Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz? I mean, maybe as the years go by, she'll get Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz-ier.

Klaus:  Oh, nein, nein, nein. Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz is not something that develops over time. It is something that happens instantaneously.

It courses through you like the water of a river after a storm... filling you and emptying you all at once. You feel it throughout your body. In your hands, in your heart, in your stomach, in your skin.

Of course you feel it in your Schlauchmachendejungen. Pardon my French. Have you ever felt this way about someone?

Ted: Yeah, I think so.

Klaus: If you have to think about it, you have not felt it.

Ted: And you're absolutely sure you'll find that someday?

Klaus: Of course. Everyone does eventually. You just never know when or where.

Backsound: Band of Horses - The Funeral (hauntingly yet beautiful song)

"Do you believe that concept?"
"Hell yes."
