I came across with Cee’s blog and found out that there are so many challenges or I should call it “regular events” that I am so interested in joining. I had joined Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge here and this time, I am tempted to join her Share Your World challenge.
To be honest, when I read the title Share Your World, it reminds me of one of Tohoshinki’s song Share The World. I am a TVXQ fan (Tohoshinki is their name in Japan) so it’s only apt if I include this video on my post.
If you are an anime fan, you might recognize this song as One Piece OST 😉
What made you feel good this week?
I’m writing this on a Tuesday and so far nothing unpleasant happened in my week, which also mean nothing too exciting happen either. Work is monotonous, the work atmosphere is good as usual.
If we count week starting on Monday, the most time I’m enjoying so far is my Japanese language class. I am so into learning this language that I love every minute I spent in my classes. We re-viewed last week class, we learn some new kana (Japanese alphabet) and new grammar.
However, if we count one week back, there’s this simple gesture of care from a friend that touched me the most.
I am not sure if I can share too many details in public blog, considering that this friend is a very private person, I won’t share much on here. But overall, it’s probably the one that made me feel best in the last week(end). 😀
For potlucks or parties do you cook it yourself, buy from a grocery store, or pay for catering?
Well, potlucks is actually not very popular in Indonesia. However, our office sometimes have this “rujakan” – Rujak is like salad with sweet peanut sauce (sometimes spicy sweet peanut sauce) which consist of fruits, friend tofu, crackers and sometimes few select vegetable (usually cucumber).
2 weeks ago, we have rujakan at work and I brought fried tofu. I prefer to prepared it myself rather than buy it on street vendor. I quite like cooking, and if we have potlucks (me and my work colleagues have been talking the possibilities of doing this) most certainly I would prefer to cook myself. 🙂

What is your favorite part of the town/city you live in. And what Country do you live?
I live in Surabaya, it’s the 2nd largest city in Indonesia so it is pretty crowded. I used to go to University in West Surabaya area and after I finished my university, I move to South area which is less crowded.
Traffic wise, I can say I prefer the south area, but entertainment wise, I can say that west area has far more options. But… if I had to choose my favourite part of the city…. I’m not sure I have any.
However, I have once joining a “city tour” held by a local church (I’m not a Christian and this is certainly not my church, I was invited by a friend and it turned out to be a fun event), and on this mini tour, we have a chance to visit a navy base and their museum and it enable me to saw this grand view.
Best sunset I’ve ever seen in Surabaya. and yes, that’s navy’s ship right there 🙂

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world…..
My room. Alone. And at home with my family.
I’m not a hermit, I do enjoy going out, but I like it best when I’m alone in my room. Sometimes I feel like outside world are just to noisy and solitary can give me some peace and I always enjoy accompany of myself.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
hmmm.. from last week..
well, the care gesture from my friend last weekend, I was grateful for. Also, we celebrated 2 colleagues birthday at work last week. It was another fun day at work that I thoroughly enjoyed!
I don’t particularly looking forward to anything this week or next week, but I will be going home for a long weekend in the next 3 weeks!! :)))
