new Iowa City resident

I am now a new resident of..........*drumroll* Iowa City, Iowa!!!!!
We love this place! It has basically everything (my favorites are organic grocery stores and farmers' market for fresh fruits and veggies). Above is the picture of downtown Iowa City.

Dreamy Pads

Those who knows me very well know my secret. I like things that are either impossible, very very impossible, immortal, fattening, addictive, or expensive. Thinking about future house, I like the house above and also these houses below...

Have a fantastic weekend!

I really miss living in Bali. I miss celebrating Nyepi with my friends, or spending the silence day at my grandparents house in Ubud. I miss eating street food and drinking cold beer at the beach.
Anyways, this weekend is going to be fantastic! On Sunday, my friends and I will be representing my college at the Education Fair. And then on Monday, we will be having a dinner with my Director of International Office at my favorite place, Kafe Betawi. I am excited!
Meanwhile, I'd like to share some of my favorite things this week...

Singapore - Take 4

On my fourth visit to Singapore, I finally discovered a small and cozy place for brunch. B Bakery at Bussorah Street. It's such a cute little place with clean and simple furniture. We were hungry and wanted a nice brunch so we decided to walk from our hotel for about 15 minutes to find this place. It was totally worth it! We ordered BLT Sandwich, I had Ice Chocolate (The BEST I ever had in my whole life! Creamy and not too sweet. Perfection). Then we had Tiramisu for dessert. Everything was delish and perfect in portion.
Unlike other places, we didn't have a food coma :)

Ingrid Michaelson

I'm about to pack for our short trip/visa run to Singapore next week. It's gonna be our second time and my fourth time. I just wanna scream, "Oh man packing is so hard! I just wanna bring everything!" :)
Anyways, I just found out about Ingrid Michaelson through Anthropologie's Facebook page. I love her style and her music! Check it out...

Have a magical weekend!

Packing for Spring Break


When I was little, my parents took me on a road trip at least twice a year (sometimes even four or five times a year!). At least once or twice a year we went on a road trip to Bali. I have a cool dad who loves road trip :) My parents also let me chose which place I wanted to go to with one condition: Good grades, only B's or A's. It motivated me a lot!

I love rice! As an Indonesian, I've been eating rice all my life, mostly white rice. Recently, it got me thinking... White rice is so nice and clean, easy to eat and good with most of Indonesian dishes, but what's inside the white rice?
