Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends

flight from Jakarta to Bali
welcoming myself back to Bali.. excuse the dirty window :)

Another week gone by and we are getting closer to the end of 2020. 

I have been focusing a lot on works as we have big events coming this December. The fact that the meetings will be conducted in hybrid mode,- in this case, a combination of offline and online event,- does not make things simpler or easier. We still have to prepare everything from scratch and the administrative arrangement as well as the substantive issues have to be thoroughly managed. At some point, it is much more tiring! Working from home makes us work around the clock somehow. But I have set my boundaries and I make sure I don't work overtime so it will affect my healthy and my wellbeing. Do you also have similar situation with regards to Work from Home?

The kids have been continuing their online classes and they have their tests again. December will give a break to many of us, particularly heading to the end of the year. You can smell the holiday season in the air already! Frankly I look forward to it and hope that I can benefit from the extra holidays provided by the Government in lieu of the usual holiday that we are supposed to get during Idul Fitri or Eid el-Fitr in May during the beginning of the pandemic. But I fear that others will have similar plans and people will flock in many tourist destinations. So much for having a safe and peaceful holiday. Well, we'll see about it. 

Welcome to Bali
we might go back to Bali again..

Last week, right after Bali, I visited Bandung, the capital city of West Java, for works. Bandung is always fun indeed. We have so many lovely memories in this city.

It was just me and my hubby so we stayed for 3 days there. It's good to walk down some memory lanes but since it's still the pandemic, we didn't really go out that much. We just enjoyed our time in Hilton Bandung as much as we could.

We tried one of the famous culinary spots in Bandung, Se'i Sapi Lamalera. Well, this food is originally coming from East Nusa Tenggara but this smoked beef has won people's heart even as far as West Java. My hubby enjoyed it very much and I did too. And that's one of the perks of visiting Bandung, never ending culinary experience!

have you tried Se'i Sapi Lamalera in Bandung/

WW: Dago Highland Resort, West Java

We are welcoming ourselves back to Bandung.
As you have probably been aware of, my sister-in-law just got married a week ago and we are now taking her to Bandung to meet her new family.

It was my hubby's family who are traveling from Lampung, stop by in Jakarta for one night then travel together to Bandung. It was the 9 of us in total. Good thing we didn't experience traffic except by the time we reached Pasteur toll gateway, the entrance of Bandung. In less than 3 hours, we have arrived in this Paris van Java city.

Welcome to Dago Highland Resort
This time, we decided t stay in Dago Highland Resort.
We visited the house of our sister-in-law new family house in Dago and therefore we chose this area to stay the night.

The resort is located at the top hill of Dago Pakar.
As you can imagine, the resort is okay, just average unfortunately, but the view is amazing.
The joy of listening to the sound of birds chirping, inhaling fresh air, and enjoying wonderful vista is priceless!
Here are some photos I took during our 2-day stay in this place.

Swimming session by the hill..

Fresh flower for you all..

Good morning..

Let's just relax here..

Join us un (almost) Wordless Wednesday and join the link party!

Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends

Enjoy the beauty of Indonesia :)
Hello again and happy to welcome you back on another round of our weekly link party.

Just a little update from my corner, where live has pretty much continue in its usual pace.
Meetings, draftings, reports, and more meetings are pretty much in the horizon.
But I's super excited as I will be back to 'school' in a way and join the senior diplomatic training.

I have probably mentioned it to you before and I have formally submitted my application.
I am happy to have a good TOEFL score as well.
647 out of 677.
Well, not that bad at all I suppose, after being away from school fro quite some times and the last time I did the test was probably 6 - 7 years ago.
I was a bite nervous I had no time at all to prepare but I crashed the night before reading the old book of TOEFL preparation and ended up sleeping faster LOL.
All in all, I guess I am ready now and I still have series of tests before I can formally join the program.

Meanwhile, my son is getting ready for the final test.
They also have so many tests in between as well, including cooking test!
So the boys, my son and 3 of his friends, came to the house last weekend to practice cooking nasi goreng, the famosu Indonesian fried rice.
It was hilarious to see them learning how to cook when they don't even know different types of onion nor never peel an onion before. It went well son was pretty much do everything as he's quite a cook hehehe. Their nasi goreng tasted good and I sincerely hope they will produce the same thing during the real practice/test at school.Too bad I didn't take pictures of their work. I should have, shouldn't I?

I am spending some times in Bandung, the capital city of West Java, for meetings and this time, I took the train to go here.
It's always fun to take the train and I love the wonderful view we can definitely enjoy along the way.
