Love (part 5, 6, 7)

Standard

Related to my previous post…….. I skipped part 5 and part 6, because we met only a few times and I thought we didn’t take any photo at the time hehe.

 

Part 5 : Aji returned from the sites on 26 January 2018 in the morning. However, we just met at dinner time, because I was in Semarang at the time, and my return flight was in the afternoon. We had dinner @ around Airy Rooms. On 27 January, we had breakfast also @ around Airy Rooms, then had lunch @ Bopet Mini (Jalan Bendungan Hilir Gang II No.1A, Jakarta Pusat), watched Australian Open final between Caroline Wozniacki and Simona Halep, and had dinner @ Ayam Gepuk Pak Gembus (Jl. Taman Setia Budi I No.36, RT.3/RW.2, Jakarta Selatan). On 28 January in the morning, Aji went home.

We met again on the night of 11 February, we had some chit-chat, and ordered McD for dinner via GoFood. On 12 February, I accompanied Aji to the airport. I introduced him to my favorite beverage : macchiato @ KOI – T3 and had brief conversation before he should go to waiting room before board the aircraft which will depart to Balikpapan at around 2 pm.

 

Part 6 : Aji had 2-week-workshop-training @ Cileungsi. When he arrived in Jakarta (on the morning of 18 March), he rode taxi from the airport along with his friends, who also joined 2-week-workshop-training. But, he disembarked at Setiabudi One, and came to my boarding house, while I was at home 😀 he forgot that I went home at the time hehe. Since I felt sorry for him, bummed around Jakarta alone, then I returned to Jakarta not long after. We met @ Sarinah, had Aji’s favorite meatball @ Jalan Sabang for lunch, and watched A Wrinkle in Time @ Setiabudi One. After had ordered Eatlah via GoFood for dinner, Aji headed to Cileungsi.

During the weekend (24-25 March 2018), I was in Singapore, while Aji had a lot of tasks to do. Hence, we met again on 29 March, we had dinner @ KoKas. On 30 March, after had late breakfast @ Ayam Lengkuas (on Jalan Setiabudi Tengah No. 1, Jakarta Selatan), I accompanied him to the airport, and met his friend there 🙂

 

Part 7 : Aji returned from the sites on 29 April 2018. We had lunch @ BK – Setiabudi One, strolled around and watched Avengers @ Pacific Place. Then, we had dinner @ Pancious. On 30 April, after office hours, I directly headed to his RedDoorz, and we ordered Carl’s via GoFood for dinner (eat burgers everyday haha). 1 May is public holiday (Labour Day). We had breakfast together @ McDc – Plaza Festival, before Aji played futsal @ Citos and went home afterwards.

Aji was in Jakarta again on the night of 4 May. He came to my boarding house for a while and we had brief conversation at the time ❤ On 5 May, Aji took part in ITB Alumni Futsal Tournament @ Citos. I watched him play futsal from around 11 am – 6 pm. Alhamdulillah his team won the tournament! Buuut, Aji was ill after the games wkwk, thus he returned home and I headed to my boarding house, after we had dinner @ Pepper Lunch – Citos.

félicitations!

On 10 May, we met in Bandung :

we had Bakso So’un & Mie Ayam Lodaya (Jl. Veteran No.3, Bandung) for lunch, c’est bon!

then, visited our friends’ coffee shop –> Bahagia Kopi @ The Saparua (Jalan Ambon No.15, Bandung)

 

Aji’s matcha | my es kopi bahagia (café au lait with honey) tasted good :9

and had dinner @ Se’i Sapi Lamalera (Jalan Bagus Rangin No. 24A, Bandung), c’est délicieux!

I returned to jakarta on 13 May. Then, we met again on 15 May, after office hours, in Jakarta. We watched Deadpool @ Plaza Indonesia. On 16 May, I accompanied Aji to the airport. We had lunch @ Marugame – T3 and had some chit-chat before he should go to waiting room and board the aircraft to Balikpapan at around 2 pm.

I had a business trip to Bogor on 6-8 November 2017, and I went back to Jakarta on 9 November. Simultaneously, Aji returned from the sites, but he had to come to the office in Pulogadung first. After he finished his business in the office, we finally met each other. Alhamdulillah, I am super happy because the last time I saw him was 3 months ago :””” we had dinner @ Foodprint – Grand Indonesia. At the time, I chose Kibo cheesecake for my dinner, while he preferred KFC chochicks. Aji said that chochicks is not good haha.

 

Since returning from the sites until almost the end of November, Aji worked at the office in Pulogadung. It means that we can see each other more often than usual Alhamdulillah. So that, on 13 November 2017, after office hours, I headed to Arion Mall – Rawamangun to accompany him finishing his works @ McD. It reminds me of my college life 😀

 

Then, on 16 November, after office hours, we planned to meet @ Quiznos Sub – Rawamangun, since Aji still have some works to be finished at the time. Buuuut apparently someone is tired to do his works, thus he asked me to watch Justice League at Arion XXI hehe.

 

I turned 26 on 21 November 2017. After office hours, Aji invited me to come to his room @ Airy Rooms Setiabudi. When I arrived, he had showered, consequently I had to wait outside the room for a while until he finished his shower. Long wait is finally over *lebay* he opened the door, and as I walked through the door, he welcomed me with happy birthday song and a box of cupcakes. Thank you!!! Not long after, we headed to Genki Sushi – Grand Indonesia for dinner, as I was already starving~~

 

sorry for the blur, it’s a proof of Aji is not a selfie experts fortunately :p | my birthday cake ❤

 

On 22-24 November 2017, Aji went home. Then, on 25 November, he came to Jakarta again. We had dinner @ Thai Street – Plaza Senayan and watched Thor for our Saturday night date. Its been more than a month since the release, we were soooo oudated hahaha. On the next day (26 November), we had breakfast @ Carl’s Jr – Grand Rubina, Kuningan. Then, we had lunch along with Fudel @ Yoshinoya – Plaza Festival. Fudel is Aji’s super best friend, who is also majoring in Geological Engineering (ITB 2008). After that, we headed to Grand Futsal Kuningan, since Aji and Fudel had futsal practice there. After they finished their practice, the three of us chose Wingstop – Setiabudi One for dinner and had chit-chat @ Starbucks afterwards.

 

6 December 2017. Aji came to Jakarta again, as he had to go back to the sites on 8 December. We had dinner along with my brother @ Ta Wan – Setiabudi One. Last few days, Aji was ill 😦 Alhamdulillah he was getting better before the due date. After my brother returned home, Aji and I intended to watch Murder on the Orient Express. But unfortunately, the only seats which are still vacant were front-row seats, therefore we postponed the plan until tomorrow (7 December). On the day, Aji also gave me birthday present yaaay. The gift is a pair of shoes which I wore to Museum MACAN. Thank you Jiii!

On 8 December, I accompanied Aji to the airport. We had lunch @ Marugame – Terminal 3 and had brief conversation before he should go to waiting room before board the aircraft which will depart to Balikpapan at around 2 pm.

 

Currently, he is already on his 2 weeks off sequence, Alhamdulillah he only spent 7 weeks on site. Buuut sadly, he is ill (again) now huhuhu. Get well soon, Jiii….. Please send your prayers to him too :3 I hope you, your family, myself, my family, him, and his family are always in good health and doing well, insyaAllah. Aamiin.

 

Look forward to tell you the next stories, xoxo

This is the third episode of our romantic rendezvous (ceileh!) after around 2.5 months we didn’t see each other. Aji (yes his name is Aji, I just thought that I never mentioned his name before) finally returned from the sites on 30 July 2017 and he came to Jakarta on 5 August yay. At around 5 pm, I appeared in his room @ RedDoorz Setiabudi and brought a gift and cupcakes for him, because he recently celebrated HIS 28TH BIRTHDAY 😀 When I arrived, he had watched Moana hehehe.

happy birthday!

After the film finished, we went out for dinner @ School Food Blooming Mari, Lotte Shopping Avenue, because he wanted to have Korean food. Afterwards, I followed him to meet his PS’s friends (PS = ITB’s Football Association) @ Starbucks, Setiabudi One.

On 6 August 2017 around 11 am, we headed to Puri Ardhya Garini to attend Ira’s wedding reception. Ira is my high school friend @ Insan Cendekia Serpong. Happy wedding day Raaa!

😀

Then, we planned to watch Despicable Me, after changed into casual style. But unluckily, the schedule didn’t suit us, because we had to attend Bella’s wedding reception @ Masjid Sunda Kelapa at night. Therefore, we cancelled the movie date. Bella is Aji’s friend who is also majoring in Geological Engineering (ITB 2008).

 

7 August 2017. We had breakfast together before I headed to my office @ Gambir, and he headed to Pama headquarters @ Pulo Gadung. When his ‘things’ in the office done, he returned to his hometown. Bye Ji, see you on Thursday………………………

 

10 August 2017. Aji was in Jakarta, as tomorrow he will return to the sites again. After office hours, I came to his room @ Airy Rooms Setiabudi, and after prayed Maghrib, we went outside for dinner @ Holy Smokes, Lotte Shopping Avenue. OMG my sirloin steak was so damn delicious, it is much more delicious than H*lyc*w :”””” When our belly was already full, we left the restaurant and strolled around for a while @ Lotte.

my sirloin + spiral sausage :9

 

On 11 August 2017, I accompanied him to the airport. Currently, it’s been almost 2.5 months since the last time I saw him, can’t wait to see him again……

byeeeee 😦

But unfortunately, until now, he still don’t know when he will return from the sites, since he still have an assignment to be finished before go home. I hope you get it done soon Ji, so you can come to Jakarta soon~ aamiin.

 

Look forward to tell you the next stories, xoxo

こんにちは!

Continue the story from the previous post, in this post, I will tell you some stories when we were together for around 4-5 days during his 2-weeks-off on May.

Our first rendezvous after about 2 months of LDR (Long Distance Relationship) is an after-office-hours-movie-date on 12 May 2017 @ Senayan City! We watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2 which had already released since April hehe. Finallyyy, we met again, I’m sooooo happy!!!! Before we got into the cinema, we had early dinner @ Bakerzin (on Lower Ground), since I was already hungry because I only had bubur sumsum for lunch.

 

14 May 2017, we met @ Gambir Station at around 8 am to rode Argo Parahyangan Train to Bandung at 8:45. When we reached Bandung, we had lunch @ Sop Buntut Dahapati (on Jalan Cipaganti No.146), because he was a bit ill after yesterday futsal tournament……..

appetizing oxtail soup @ Sop Buntut Dahapati

After had prayed Maghrib, we stopped by @ Kedai Ling-Ling (on Jalan Sukajadi No. 157, near Paris van Java). Then, we strolled around PVJ (Paris van Java) for a while before we went back to the room.

We were hungry before bed huhu, so that I ordered yangzhou fried rice, while he picked chicken noodle with meatballs @ Yami-Yami Noodle House (on Setrasari Mall) via GoFood 😀

15 May 2017, he wanted to have Bubur Ayam Serbu Rame (on Jalan Cisitu Lama, near Cisitu Baru) for his breakfast hehe, therefore we headed there after we took a bath and got ready.

Next, we strolled around the campus of ITB for a while, and headed to the Lodge Maribaya not longer after. Had finished @ the Lodge Maribaya at around 3 pm, we had late lunch @ Steak Hotel by Holycow! TKP Bandung 2 (on Jalan Cipaganti No.150).

In the night, we went to Cihampelas Walk, Teras Cihampelas, and had dinner @ Kambing Bakar Cairo (on Jalan Cihampelas No.123).

 

16 May 2017, I wanted to have Nasi Kuning SSC (on Jalan Sumur Bandung) for breakfast, hence we headed there after checked out.

Then, we went to Bandung Makuta (on Jl. Van Deventer No.2), a very happening gift shop in Bandung nowadays. We arrived there at around 9.30 am, and all I can see is a long queue weeew~ their product sold out quickly. But eventually, I can bring home makuta caramel and makuta extra cheese, Alhamdulillah!

Next, we ate again 😀 we decided to have his favorite meal : meatballs! Luckily, Bakso So’un & Mie Ayam Lodaya (on Jalan Veteran No.3) is situated across the Bandung Makuta, so that we went there afterwards.

I returned to Jakarta by Argo Parahyangan Train at 4:10 pm, thus we walked to Blackbone Coffee (on Jalan Panaitan No.22) to have lemonade and mojito (not coffee obviously hehe) and sat inside to kill time until around 3 pm. After I had boarded the train, he went to bus station to go home.

23 May 2017. He was in Jakarta, as tomorrow he will return to the sites again. After office hours, we had dinner @ Kawasan Kuliner BSM (on Jalan M.H. Thamrin No.7) along with some of his friends at his former office. The last but not the least, on 24 May 2017, I accompanied him to the airport……
