I can’t believe we’re already in the fifth month of 2016! I wish time could slow down a bit. At the beginning of this year, I promised myself to keep track of my life progress in a journal. Ever since I moved back to Indonesia, I kinda fell off track. I lost my focus and I was so scared I would never achieve my goals. At one point I knew this kind of mindset would not help me at all. I had to wake up from all these negative noises and make a change.
A few months back I did a little experiment with some leftover veggies and tadaaa, this Barley Almond Salad recipe came up. That was the first time I ate barley (I know right?!) and despite I’m not a big fan of its flavor, this salad still came out good!
Without further ado, here it is!
I finally get around to writing a fitness post. So here I present you, my first Gym Diary!
Today I did normal (steady state) cardio, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), and abs workout. While cardio is important, I don’t believe in long steady-state cardio session (eg. hours of treadmill sesh). By far a combo of normal cardio and HIIT works effectively for me. Not only did I improve my endurance, I also improved my overall strength and got results quicker.
As the title suggests, today I will be sharing a smoothie recipe! And it’s not just an ordinary smoothie, it’s a Power Smoothie! I call it power smoothie because it gives me a boost of energy. This smoothie is very versatile, you can drink it anytime you like. For me, it’s my go-to smoothie when I want a quick breakfast or when I feel hungry during the day. It also serves as a great pre and post-workout drink. When you drink this as a pre-workout, allow at least 30 minutes for your body to digest.
This post is long overdue. I got distracted and it resulted in three off-topic posts. But wait no further because I’m back with the last Bali Vacay post (finally)! Check out my previous Bali Vacay posts if you haven’t done so (links provided at the end of this post).
I’ve done general travel tips on my first Bali Vacay post and I figured it’s best to have a post dedicated solely to tips. Traveling is fun but there’s a lot to prepare before you reach your dream destination. As for Bali, while it’s a wonderful place, it’s insanely hot. I don’t do well in hot weather and it shows on my skin and hair. While I tried to keep everything simple – from outfits to makeup – it took a bit of an extra effort to look decent there.
You don’t believe me? Just imagine this: oily hair and face, excessive sweat with chances of body odours, sticky skin, tan lines, sunburns, and the list goes on. Now you tell me if that’s not annoying. Honestly, who doesn’t wanna look good whilst on vacation?
This is why I’m doing this post. Even if you’re not planning on going somewhere tropical, I’m sure you’ll find these tips helpful.
Helloooo friends! Good to have you here!
As I promised on my last post, I’ll be talking about my Bali Vacay again! YAY! If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, please do so by clicking this link. I promise you won’t regret it 😉
In this post I’ll be reviewing some amazing places that I went to in Bali. Yesss, Bali has tons of gorgeous beaches but this island is not just famous for that (surprise!). I was lucky I had friends in Bali who recommended me some cool places that I otherwise wouldn’t have found.

Happy New Year lovelies! My apology for my long absence from the blog world. 2015 was an emotional journey for me and some days were so difficult that I felt uninspired to write. On the good note though, I have awesome stuff planned for my blog this year! YAY 🙂
In honor of 2015, I have listed some major lessons that I learned throughout the year.
