Just got home from my East Java trip (again) 3 weeks ago, a quick trip to relieve all the stress and pressure. The reason why I went to Surabaya is because I have to attend my cousin’s wedding which is actually on the 7th and 8th of February. I couldn’t come on the 6th February because I still had one final exam to be done, so my sister, my sister’s boyfriend and I booked the tickets on the 7th of February. Too bad I couldn’t come to witness their special day, but the second day of the wedding party was amazing too. Even though the wedding was only two days, but we stayed for a week to explore East Java and stay away from the hectic city life, Jakarta. It was really a great time, where I could enjoy my days after a stressful and tough semester, and celebrate my 21st birthday which is on the 1st of February. Sooo, the wedding party is just an excuse. LOL.
So, my sister and her boyfriend organised a surprise to me on the 1st of February. That night, I was checking my phone and I screamed when the clock showed 12:00 AM on the 1st of February as it means I’m officially 21! (yes, the beginning of a new age should be celebrated in an exciting way, such as: screaming and smiling with uncertain reasons. I’m that weird, I know). And suddenly the light went off, my sister and my parents came into my room and sang me a birthday song. I was out of words! Such a beautiful surprise. Well, they always give me surprise every year and each year was so magical. And I got lots of presents from my friends, and my family, lots of sweet and kind wishes from all the lovely people. And what make it even more incredible is, when I woke up on my birthday, I got a chance to talk to my all time favourite modern-poet and super talented production designer, Lauryn. I am such a big fans of her. She said she wants to send me a postcard all the way from California. As I love all of her works, so that was SO epic!
I took almost 500 pictures during the trip from East Java to Central Java :”) So here ‘s at least some of them!
Well, that’s all. Another tick off to my bucket list. I am so proud to say that Indonesia is heavenly beautiful. From Sabang to Merauke, this amazing country is filled with so many beautiful beaches, mountains, and another beautiful landscapes. I cannot wait to explore those exotic islands, breathtaking mountains, and all the gorgeous landscapes.
(On a side note, I have an instagram account where I usually post my holiday pictures and lately, it becomes a platform for me to write down my feelings into poetry, here’s the link if you care enough to see ’em: https://instagram.com/fefianist/, and these are some short videos I took on my way from Tuban to Central Java: here andhere) Till next journey, my friends..
