To start off this letter...

I want to say I'm so proud of you. I don't know where to begin with, but all I know is you made it so far and there are so many chances, life-changing experiences, joy and happiness that are waiting for you. Life is not always easy for you, but you managed to fight and stand up and keep going. Look where you are now! You live in Melbourne, nearly six months now and you're experiencing your first winter! Life is full of surprises, isn't it? 

More than just what you have achieved and of course, those you're going to, I am proud that you can put those demons inside your head in silence. It is not easy, you put a lot of effort to fight that darkness - those days when you thought you'd never smiled again, when you had to smile and pretend everything was okay when truly, nothing was okay at all. 

The way you show people that you care and cherish them, in a way that probably not common and that's okay. You are being you and that's very brave. Not everyone is going to understand, but hey, you don't have to be what everyone asked you to be. You don't have to explain everything to everyone. The most important thing is you're not hurting anybody. You are you and that's your power. You have no obligation to be everything to everyone, but it is compulsory for you to be yourself and you're doing it. 

I am so proud that you choose to put other people's feelings as a priority - you treat them nicely, but honey, sometimes you need to stop hurting yourself. Those people you protected might be not going to do the same thing. 

I know you are not perfect, but you don't have to be, so stop being too hard on yourself because you are perfectly imperfect. It is okay to be a work in progress, it's fine to take baby steps. Your feelings are valid. Your heart is beautiful, please take a good care of it by knowing when to let go things and people that are not meant for you and accept things as they are. Accept you as you are and be proud of it. 

Your sky is your limit. You can be everything you put your mind to. So take a deep breath, reevaluate and evolve. 

You deserve a world, even a little more. You are beautiful. 

You are enough. You are everything. You are all.

Love always,

and then
I met you and it feels the same

Selamat Hari Raya Idulfitri! 

Hari lebaran tahun ini berbeda jauh dengan hari lebaran tahun-tahun sebelumnya. Kali ini untuk yang pertama, aku merayakan hari lebaran di Melbourne bersama keluarga keduaku. Kami, para guru bantu di Victoria, Australia, orang-orang yang saling menitipkan diri pada satu sama lain, saling menjaga dan menyayangi, pada akhirnya mengerti seperti apa rasanya merindukan momen. Mengatasi rasa rindu pada keluarga masing-masing, kami pun membuat momen yang tidak mungkin bisa dilupakan. 

Selamat lebaran dari Melbourne!

We went to Bendigo this weekend to visit Cheri's house! As usual, we had everything planned but as we got there, we didn't do much actually. We went to the art gallery, walked around for a bit then just stayed at home, had a quality conversation, played games... 

Here are some pictures I managed to capture on our weekend gateway!

Our tired face!
undereye bags are so lit!

Akhir pekan lalu saya dan teman-teman Language Assistant Victoria 2018 menjadi sukarelawan untuk acara Sayembara Lisan dan juga simulasi konferensi PBB. It's such a great experience!

Sejak menjadi language assistant, saya mendapat banyak sekali pengalaman yang luar biasa di Victoria dan saya di sini baru lima bulan! Bisa bayangkan berapa banyak pengalaman yang bisa saya miliki selama setahun disini? 

Seperti biasa inilah sekilas dari akhir pekan yang penuh pengalaman bersama keluarga LA ;)
