Eat well, live well, and be merry!

A Typical (Healthy) Weekend

This year I feel even more “mature,” in a sense that not only I keep doing what I love (read: eating, being alone, writing), I feel like I am in my default mode of keeping my life balance, especially these days.

I keep meeting friends and will be by myself if I want a me-time. I skip early morning work out because I want more sleep so that I would not be cranky the whole day at work. I drink veggie + fruit juices, wheat bread, oatmeal, ditch white rice and all that, but sometimes when I want pizza, ice cream, bubble tea, you name it, I just go for it.

I go to gym almost every night (pretty obsessed :lol:), after work, or after dinner with my friends if I still can make it. Thank goodness my gym is very close to my place and opens until late. I could just walk home at 10.30 pm and be there 10 minutes after.

Weekend is also (healthy) and interesting. Most of the time I list down the places I want to visit, restaurants/cafes I wanna try, friends I wanna see/have sleepover with (typical Aries, everything must be listed and carefully organized in an effective manner :lol:). And of course, aside from all that, spend some time at the gym, pool, or on the road during car free day. When I’m ambitious I’ll do all of those three and have meals in between. Last week I got to spend some time with Ibeth’s kids when she and her sons were spending weekend at Intercon Hotel, so I stopped by with Naniet and soaked up a bit. It was really nice, I even got some kisses from Nino, hihihi… After that we had lunch and coffee with other friends, but I’ll write the review on another posts later.

Yesterday I also spent my weekend with my dear ones. My bestfriend, Opie, stayed over at my place. Whilst we indulged ourselves with ice cream and sea food on Sat night (and gossiping the whole night before we went to sleep, hihi), we spent the next Sunday morning running during Car Free Day. It was my first actual run, because I usually cycle. We ran and walked about 5km. Not too bad for beginners. After that we had breakfast at QQ Kopitiam FX. I just knew yesterday that they opened early, it was only about 8.30am and the place was already packed. Oh, do you also know that FX rents lockers and shower room for only IDR 25k?

Anyway, right after breakfast we met with my other weekend partner&Β  her high school bestie, Naniet and Septi. Talk about telepathic. Even when we did not make any appointment, we always meet πŸ˜†

At noon, Opie and I went for tea time at Collette & Lola, it was really nice, we ordered the right stuff πŸ˜† A tip though, don’t visit the place later than 12pm, the place is TOO FULL of people, some even willingly wait outside just to get in. I mean, it’s not even a restaurant that serves real food, the biggest meal you can get is a birthday cake. Why make special effort for a little cake shop? Oh well.


Right after cake, before running some house chores, I went to the gym, again πŸ˜†

I feel really good and happy though, despite work stuff and all other things I should deal with on the side (sometimes it’s just pure shitty things), I still have time for my friends, myself, and also my body. I think I will never have my early 20s body back, ’cause I feel that my body and metabolism change, but I feel really fit someho. And when you feel fit, you feel good.

So let’s eat healthier, have more sleep, but never forget to let loose sometimes πŸ˜€ May we always have pleasant weekend times! πŸ˜€

The famous independent English-language #bookstore in #Paris that has been featured in films such as #BeforeSunset, #Julie&Julia, and #MidnightinParis. It is located at Paris' Left Bank (La Rive Gauche), opposite of #NotreDame (so it'd be easy to find πŸ˜‰). The bookstore was originally founded by Sylvia Beach (American) in 1919 where both leading French writers and expat writers at the time used to gather (including #Hemingway and #Fitzgerald!). It was then closed in 1941 due to German occupation. In 1951, an #American named George Whitman opened a bookstore called "Le Mistral" and renamed it to "Shakespeare and Company" in 1964 to pay tribute to Sylvia Beach. He even named his only child Sylvia too, who in 2006, was appointed to take charge of the place.

That's a lot of #history right there, but I'm always fond to know how a certain place can stand still and be fully operative until today after sooo long. Anyways, these pictures are from 2013. In 2015 they opened a #cafe just right next door! A bookstore and a cafe altogether, what more can you ask for 😍 Definitely one of the places I gotta go back to. ❀

Why does this #glicoman billboard seem like such a big deal? Ternyata papan iklan ini udah dipasang sejak tahun 1935! Segitu lamanya sampe udah jadi #icon-nya #Osaka, jadi semacam nggak sah kalo nggak foto di sini. πŸ™ƒ Gambar pelari yang ini adalah instalasi ke-6 dan instalasi pertama dalam 82 tahun yang pake lampu LED (140,000 lampu LED!). Instalasi ini dipasang di tahun 2014, 16 tahun setelah instalasi ke-5 dilakukan di tahun 1998. Lima instalasi sebelumnya masih pake lampu neon. 
By the way, satu hal yg gue sadari, #traveling jadi salah satu cara untuk gue belajar/mengetahui banyak pengetahuan umum... setelah mengunjungi tempatnya. Biasanya kalo mau jalan-jalan gue nggak pernah cari tau terlalu banyak soal tempat yg mau gue datengin sih (efek menua, 3 tahun terakhir ini niat riset sblm berangkat berkurang, liat ntar aja pas udah sampe 🀣🀣🀣). Gue jg jarang ikutan tur setempat, paling cuma browsing-browsing sekilas (ada temen gue yg kebalikan gue, semua dibaca dan dicari tahu sebelum berangkat). Kalo gue biasanya setelah ngeliat/dateng ke tempatnya langsung, baru kemudian nyari tau/baca lebih banyak dari #internet. Semacam nyocokin apa yg udah gue liat sebelumnya sama informasi yg gue temukan #online.

Either way, I love that traveling allows me to learn and #discover so many things. This usually helps when we're socializing in daily lives 'cuz we'll have so many stuff to talk/exchange about πŸ™Œ

#osaka #japan my bebe chanelling me: thinking of what to do this #Sunday. (actually, I have a lot of stuff to do, but zero will power 🀣🀣🀣) A #landmark so iconic it's worth romanticizing about. 😍

I hopped off my friend's car and snapped this #view right before we walked into the main complex. It was almost dark but I got some #sunset "leftover" which made it perfect, 'cause I always love purplish #sky. Not long after it went dark and the tower lit up. So I thought... why not chill for a bit, albeit turned out it was more like "chillin' in a chilly weather" 🀣

Oh, in case you ever wonder (like me) on how #iconic this tower can get, #Wikipedia even has its own #section called "Eiffel Tower in Popular Culture" that list down all the #films that have made Eiffel (named after engineer Gustave Eiffel whose #company designed and built the tower in 1887) part of their #scenes... from any kind of plots!
