"We aren't who we want to be. We are what society demands. We are what our parents choose.We don't want to disappoint anyone; we have a great need to be loved.So we smother the best in us.Gradually, the light of our dreams turns into the monster of our nightmares.They become things not done, possibilities not lived."- Adultery, by Paulo Coelho

Day 18. Watched Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens at Supermall XXI. Not a big fan but I do follow this epic saga. BB-8 is super cute!
Day 31. Last day of 2015. I'm writing this blog at the client's office. Yep, I'm still working today and I declared a self-challenge as well: No Complaining Rule. It will be lovely to close the trip of 2015 with goodness, right?
- Ubud Writers and Readers Festival. My solo trip and a festival of writer/reader. What should I say more?
- INFINITE EFFECT in Jakarta! This is beyond perfection!
- Japan Night at Kota Kasablanka. It definitely reminds me how awesome J-Rock is (again).
After Dark by Murakami Haruki. I know it's not a new released book, but it's the best one I read this year.
Out of 26 movies I watched this year at cinema, my favorite is (surprisingly) Inside Out.
I was out of town for 233 days this year and, other than my trip to Ubud, my best days while I was not at Jakarta definitely go to my trip to Semarang.
Best TV Show:
The Genius! It's a Korean reality/variety show that I watched this year, from Season 1 to Season 4. I seriously recommend this as they don't offer simply just idols but various players and games! It's really fun.
As a K-Pop fans, BTS stole the attention easily with I Need U and, for me, Charlie Puth with his voice also gained the highlight this year.
GoDonuts! A friend recommended me this (IG: @_godonuts) and I love their Choco Mint!
And a special dedication for my grandfather who passed away this 22 September, this year is the first time I lost a close relative.
Thank you and I'm sorry.
