Gonna Sleep Now

Many things have been going on in my mind, though they are random and vague it feels difficult to describe what they are. I feel exhausted and anxious, and I guess S has been hearing this a lot from me. Thank God he is as patient, understanding and calming as I want him to be whenever I tell him about all this.

I guess whatever I do, whatever I achieve, I can never forget that feeling back in May. The moment when I lost my baby and played the strong-woman who said "I'm okay". Maybe I am, but maybe a part of me isn't. I have fully accepted the reality and understand that God has the best plans for us. I'm just scared. Was it my fault? Was I too tired? Did I not consume enough vitamins? Will I ever get that chance again?

I'm getting to understand the beauty of motherhood. Everyday I babysit my nephew Keenan and no matter how tiring it is, it's simply..beautiful. I guess I just want to experience that too, but with my own child...:')

Running a business is very exhausting too. Even more than working in the corporate world no matter how scary your boss might be or how demanding your client is. Running your own business requires full focus, passion, determination, persistence and the need to always be ready for changes, heartbreaks and failure.

Anyway, I love Allah and I am grateful for everything Allah gives me in life. Insya Allah everything will be okay because good things always come to those who love life.

Good night! :)

Goodbye London!

It has been an awesome experience here in London, and I will surely miss this place and everyone I met here...thank you so so so much for this opportunity, British Council! :')

Here in London, I met with a lot of entrepreneurs, creative people and business investors from around the world. It was an honor for me to present my business, Up, to an audience of more than 250 people at the Minibar event and simply here their feedback about it. It's always great to learn from as many people as possible, yes? :)

Anyway, now heading to Scotland with S hihih....yay! :)

Blue Skies Make Me Happy

I'm trying my best to adjust myself to London because so many things seem to shock me heheh...took the black cab (naive, I know) and it was SUPER MEGA EXPENSIVE, took the tube and still learning all the routes but I managed to did it right today hehehe, don't know what exactly to wear because all the outfits I brought just doesn't keep me warm enough, and the cold weather (in addition to the jet-lag) is making me sleepy the whole day hehehe...but despite all that, London's awesome! :)

I'm so happy to be meeting new friends from other countries...listening to what they do and how they contribute to their country makes me motivated to do more for Indonesia...:)
