AMSTERDAM: Second Day


It was a chilly yet sunny Sunday where I spent my second day in Amsterdam with my dearest friends. I think it was the 28th of April 2013, two days before the country’s last Queen’s Day. I cycled and walked around the city. Love love love!

In the morning Mandy, Drew, and I visited Lindsay’s new place, Lindsay is Mandy’s little sister. The place is lovely, I imagined if I have my own place I would spend weeks to decorate it, nyahaha…

Lindsay, Drew, Mandy

Ladies!

Then we went on with the bike to the city center! I captured some pictures, of course!?????????? ??????????

??????????

?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ??????????We parted ways for a few hours ’cause I had to meet up with Mbak Yoyen and Oppie, but after that I chased them back at the Museumplein (Museum Square). I love that square or should I say… big park in the center of Museumplein, so many people just lied down and chill, enjoying the sun and the breeze. Mandy even managed to get a nap! What was kinda interesting, I took a tram to the Museumplein and on my way I chit chatted with the driver, he was super friendly and perky, he talked with everyone who just got into the bus, and guess what? As soon as he asked me where did I come from, he started to speak Indonesian! Yes I know he looked rather Asian slash Indo-ish, but he could come from anywhere. He said he was originally from Malang but has lived in Amsterdam for 45 years, yet he still managed to speak our language fluently. I was really happy to finally be able to speak in my own language, even only for a few minutes. What a warm person he was, typical Indonesian! Hihi…

?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ??????????

Okay so after I met up with Mandy, Drew, and new addition to the group, Chris, what did we do? We went for another (long) walk, I really got to see the city by doing this, which was great, and I felt really healthy ’cause I walked a lot (BUT HALOH TUKANG PIJET I MISS YOU 😆 ).

Free stuff!?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ??????????

We were looking for a nice place to have dinner, and ended up at a crowded pasta place called Vapiano, food’s very good though! And then after we got some ice cream at the very famous… McDonalds! Nyahahaha… Ice cream on a chilly night, what a match… NOT. 😆

??????????

?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ??????????

McDonalds time!

But.. as it was bloody cold at night, we finally got some coffee and tea… and uhm, beer 😆?????????? ??????????

??????????Ice cream on a cold night. We love having a challenging life! 😆

And then we closed the night by doing another walk, heading back to Museumplein where we parked our bikes. Brrr… so cold! But it was a great day, I really loved it. And I think nobody understands how I miss this city… *brb cari beasiswa S2* 😆

??????????

Public toilet for men… yes… an open air one, careful before you drop your pants or we might have to check out your ass 😆

?????????? ??????????

Then I’ve been really really bad 😆

??????????

I love Drew’s t-shirt so much I just had to take a picture of it

Until next post, baby!

      halo Natiq! itu boneka beruang itu hadiah, dan oranye itu warna kesukaanku… karena aku sering traveling sendiri, jadi beruangnya sering kubawa untuk kufoto (alternatif foto muke sendiri atau foto spot wisatanya aja), buat lucu-lucuan aja, hehe…

What is #Starbucks Reserve? What's the difference with the regular #Starbucks? I went to check out the #vibe at Plaza Senayan, Plaza Indonesia, and Pakubuwono. Head to my blog (address on bio) to read my "report" 😄 #blog #blogger #blogging #coffeeshop #coffeetime #coffeecorner #coffeereview #teppyscoffeeshoplist #starbuckscoffee #starbucksindonesia #starbucksid #starbucksreserve Menurut gue utk ukuran sebuah kota, #Adelaide itu biasa aja. Kecil dan sepi, agak kebanting sama #Melbourne, #Sydney, bahkan #Perth (again, in my opinion). TAPIII... Kalo nyetir ke luar kota alias #roadtrip, banyak tempat-tempat seru dg pemandangan cantik yg bisa kita eksplorasi, apalagi kalo suka ngewine 😍 Salah satunya #BarossaValley ini. Barossa Valley adalah daerah penghasil #wine terkenal di #Australia selatan, sekitar 1-1.5 jam dari pusat kota Adelaide. Paling seru sih #lunch sambil nyobain berbagai macam wine dari berbagai #winery di sini, atau sekalian beli bawa pulang, harganya terjangkau (kalo dibandingin Indonesia yaiyalahya 🤣), misalnya ke Seppetsfield atau Pensfold 💃 terus sambil road trip berhenti-berhenti buat foto gini 💃💃💃 #LiveAwesome #LiveMoreSociety #DBSxKartupos #travel #visitaustralia #southaustralia Heart cracks open... From the upcoming #book: "27 days of heartbreak" by my talented friends:

Stella (@konnyaku) the writer. Marisa (@marzland), the illustrator.

SO PROUD OF YOU, GIRLS ❤

#the27days 
visit:
www.27daysofheartbreak.com 🌟🌟🌟 If you wanna try to #LiveSmart, for example: #traveling near and cheap for a quick #weekend getaway (esp. peeps in Jabodetabek in this case), Curug Barong in #Bogor can be one of the easy choices.

Lokasinya nggak terlalu jauh dari #Jakarta. Tinggal keluar tol Sentul dan mengarah ke Jungleland lalu belok kanan menuju Desa Babakan Madang, terus tinggal #offroad dan #trekking ke sana, deh. (won't take too long). Di jalan menuju ke sana jg banyak curug lainnya yg aksesnya bahkan lebih mudah, tapi gue suka si Curug Barong ini karena agak "pelosok," air super jernih, dan pemandangan ketika trekking baguuus 😍 Belum lg udara segernya. Biaya parkir dan biaya masuk curug jg nggak akan lbh dari 20rb. Kalo laper, ada warung mie instan murah meriah. 💃

TIPS: Kalo weekend lbh baik dtg pagi banget (jam 6an udh di sana) biar gak keburu rame, kalo #weekdays sih bisa siangan dikit. Jgn lupa jg tetep jaga kebersihan, krn kecenderungan turis lokal yg ke sana kdg msh suka buang sampah sembarangan di pinggir sungai 👊 #LiveKind and take care of our environment 😄

#LiveMoreSociety #DBSxKartupos #travel #LiveWell #LiveAwesome #waterfall Some jobs. #citylife #jakarta #candid #snappingjakarta #candid #photography #streetphotography My favorite page from @the27days (27 Days of Heartbreak, the #book). I used to read the #blog religiously 5 years ago and I remember this sentence.

That phase when a heartbreak is no longer a fresh wound and you start to forget his/her face... not exactly the feeling, though.

Can't wait for this book to be published (SOON) 😍
