What’s so special about Asia? Apart from smiley faces and low prices (sometimes ridiculously low prices), it’s food! I have been to few countries here (while currently living in China) and would like to show you what the local Asian food looks and tastes like. Every country has its own unique dishes and flavors. From fried rice and spicy sausage rolls, through dumplings and dim sum, to momos and noodles – come with me for a culinary journey around Asia!
Oh well.. What can I say? 2013 has been so exciting yet challenging for me. It is The Year of Travel, if I can give an award to it. But of course I have my dark hours too.
After all, life is not always full of sunshine and smile, isn’t it? But I’ve also learned, that even if you have the most bitter cake in the world, you can always sprinkle an amount of sugar and cinnamon on it. Well at least, to make it tasted better.
November used to be my favorite month of the year. Since it’s always raining here in Bandung and the weather is just perfect. But it didn’t rain as much as last year. Instead, I found that this year, the rain never stops pouring on December.
So I guess December is my new favorite month. It’s even better when there are Christmas tree, the carols, the cake, the warm greetings, the weather, the idea of Santa and his gifts. I love it. I somehow thinks that they are magical.
Everyone has a story. A story that makes them who they are today. This is mine…
I was raised in a small city, where everyone knows one another’s families. And if you do something disgraceful, we all will notice and talk about it. There’s definitely a lot of social pressure to keep your nose clean, as everybody knew your family and will talk about it. Once one person finds out, the rest of the town will know within minutes. But that’s part of the community. And this is too why, I guess, the bullied kids will forever be bullied until they get themselves out of the town, and change. A lot of my friends did changed after attending university in another town. They even have a lot of new good friends now – which is good for me.
I’m Sharon Loh from Indonesia. I travel and eat a lot during weekend or during my holiday. And finally I decided to create this blog on October 2012. Although I had no idea what I’m going to go through, I keep writing. And thank God my blog’s readers are growing, real strong. I’d love to hear what you think about my blog and what I may do to make it even better. I love you guys.
Think of holidays to Greece and what springs to mind? Long sunny days, pristine beaches and picturesque coves? Ancient pillared ruins and rocky outcrops jutting out over glorious turquoise seas? Or whitewashed towns and hidden villages serving up lashings of Grecian charm? You can expect to enjoy all of these things and many more on a holiday to Greece.
I’ve just received my very first postcard about 2 days ago. A lovely friend of mine sent this from Tokyo, Japan. It takes about 2 weeks to reach Indonesia. That’s pretty fast, don’t you think? I mean, I sent the same thing 2 days earlier before she sent this one. But there’s no sign of my postcard arriving in Japan. So… I guess mine got lost along its way so it won’t even reach Japan before my friend go back to Indonesia. I think I better send another one. Lanjutkan membaca My First Postcard!
Yes, I know this is a little bit too late for posting a 2012-review. But I don’t care. Better late than never, isn’t it?
Well, 2012 has been a great eventful year for me. I traveled a lot (compared to 2011 when I went to Bali and Pattaya), I ate a lot, cooked a lot, rest a lot, study a little and unfortunately, I understand the lesson even less. The weird thing is, I’m completely okay with that.
I started the year off with a few travel resolutions, involving food and fitness (which turned out that I only did the exercise twice), and some others like ‘getting a summer internship’. Well this one worked. Lanjutkan membaca A Year in Review : 2012
