When you visit hotels in Bali, you'll often come across this flower art 🌼 🌸 The red and white ones are called plumeria/frangipani or "jepun" in Indonesian 🏵 For the Balinese people and Hindus, these flowers are frequently adorned in the hair and used in offerings 💛🙏 They are highly popular in Bali and can be easily found all over the island – even in the yards of Balinese homes 🏡 The meaning of these flowers is to symbolize the purity of the heart during prayer white ✨️ The orange one is called marigold or "gemitir" in Indonesian 🌼 This flower is commonly used for offerings, crafted into garlands, draped around the necks of statues, and is also a warm welcome present for visitors arriving at Ngurah Rai Airport, Bali 🧡 Both of these flowers are easily encountered in Bali 😁 So, don't forget to enjoy the beauty of these flowers when you visit Bali ♥️ #balilife #baliculture #balibliss #baliguide #balilivin

Today is a national holiday in Indonesia 🇮🇩 as it's an election day 😁 I don't have anything special planned for today, but I'm excited to step outside and enjoy the fresh air 😌 ✨️ I've noticed a lot of promotions being offered today by local businesses, providing discounts for today only 😁😄 It's always enjoyable to explore new places, especially when there's little traffic 🤗 #wednesdaythoughts #balilivin #electionday #exploreindonesia

For some people, there will be a time when they want to take a break from the busy world😓 But, at times, we are afraid to rest or disappear for a bit🫥 We fear missing out on the latest things out there😥 leading us to focus only on what is not a priority🤯 IT'S OKAY🩷 Sometimes you need to take a moment to disappear and focus on yourself and what you want to do 😁 #introvertthoughts #tuesdayfeels

Hey Monday! 🤗😁 How's your weekend? I wanted to share my weekend story🤫🫣 Saturday was an unlucky day?! I woke up around 6 am to a dark house🕶 even my dog was startled🐶 The power went out💡 I looked for an electrician and they said the water pump caused it, then I called the water pump repairman💧⚡️ the repair process took almost 3 hours😥 After that, I cleaned up the mess in the house😵 Saturday turned out to be a very exhausting and mentally draining day!😞🤯 But Sunday was a lovely day!😆 I cleaned up my room, sorted through makeup packages (will exchange for points later)☺️, organized my wardrobe, work desk, and stationery❤️ It's been a while since I did such a thorough room cleanup😁 Feeling refreshed and accomplished😝 I even managed to iron a big pile of clothes👚👖 and had a nice dinner! Loved this Sunday! Hope your weekend was great!😊 Ready to kick off the new week!☺️ #mondaythoughts #mondaymindset #positivethought

Introvert vibes: when hurt, we don't seek revenge or drama. We gracefully step away, choosing peace over chaos. No fights, no scenes—just quiet strength 🌿💙 #IntrovertWisdom #ChoosePeace #saturdaythoughts

𝙃𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙮 𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙚 𝙉𝙚𝙬 𝙔𝙚𝙖𝙧 🧧🎉🎇 Wishing you continuous good fortune in the New Year, not only in your career but also in a harmonious and happy family life, with good health and boundless joy 🧡 #chinesenewyear #gongxifacai #lunarnewyear

Introverts: silent but strong. They choose when to speak up, especially if they care. If you're on their radar, they'll share what's on their mind. Ignore? Nope, they'll just gracefully fade away. No bad vibes here – introverts thrive in positive solitude 🌿 #IntrovertStrengths #SilentButStrong

Ice cream, anyone?🍦 Who can resist the sweet charm of ice cream?🍨 Well, it's okay if it's not everyone's cup of scoop. Totally get it!✌️✨️ We all have our flavor quirks ☺️ Personally, aside from vanilla, I'm all about embracing the flavor rainbow😁 Cheese, milk, and vanilla – not my scoop of choice🥲 Had this amazing, unique ice cream from @massimo_theoriginalsince1996 last time😍😁 A small cup with two flavors set me back around $1.5🍧 They've got over 20 flavors, and I'm stuck in a flavor dilemma😍 Can't wait to swing by again for another round of flavor exploration🤗 What's your ultimate go-to flavor? 🍦✨ #icecreamtime #gelatotime #icecreamday #baliisland #baliguide #balistyle #sanurvibes

Introverts don't seek quarrels; they see beyond the surface, understanding mistakes, and choosing peace over pointless battles. Their silence speaks volumes, not of defeat but of the strength to maintain peace 🕊️💙🤫 #IntrovertInsight #weekendvibe

𝙃𝙀𝙇𝙇𝙊 𝙁𝙀𝘽𝙍𝙐𝘼𝙍𝙔! This month is going to be very busy 🫣🤫 In two weeks, Indonesian citizens will hold general elections to elect the President, VP, and more 🗓🇮🇩 After that, the Balinese will celebrate Galungan, Kuningan, and Nyepi Day (Silence Day) - for three consecutive weeks until the second week of March 🌼 It's quite unusual for everything to happen in sequence like this😵‍💫🤯 I feel very bustling and need to prepare myself for all the hustle and bustle🫨🫡 Then, hopefully, my very first trip abroad will come true this year! ☺️ I can't wait to see a different world, beyond my island 😊️✨️ Enjoy the moment 🍃🌼 #hellofebruary #februaryflowers #thursdayvibes✨ #lifeisbeautiful #enjoythelittlethings #seeingtheworld

For introverts, self-time is soul time 🥹 Whether it's a peaceful walk🚶‍♀️, a Netflix marathon🎬, or late-night contemplation🧐, every moment alone is like a sip of energy for the soul🌙 #IntrovertRecharge #SoulfulSolitude

Eating fruits every day🍓🍊 One of my goals this year is to make a greater effort to reduce oily, floury, and fast food intake to have healthy skin🫠 It's easy and challenging, especially for this face that is sensitive and prone to acne🥲 It's indeed difficult because when working from home, the menu tends to be like that 🫣, so I need to be determined to achieve healthy skin🧐 Stay healthy, everyone! 🌸✨️ #healthyliving #healthjourney #loveyourself

I've already shared this on LinkedIn and now want to post it on Instagram ✨️🧡 It marks one of the greatest achievements and most memorable experiences in my five-year career as a translator🥹 I had the opportunity (along with passing a test) to provide Indonesian subtitles for @amazonprime @primevideoid series 💫 There were two TV series with different genres: one centered around fantasy🧙‍♀️ (family drama, supernatural fiction), and the other focused on crime drama🤬 (mystery, dark comedy). Both are exceptional works!🎬 Since I hadn't watched either, this was a fantastic chance to translate while enjoying the series🤭🤗 I collaborated with several translators for about two weeks.🫡 Each episode, lasting 40-60 minutes, took 8 hours to complete😵😴 On a typical day, I worked on two videos from 8 am to 10-11 pm (with a 2-hour break)🧐🤓 You know, the series or movies we watch are translated meticulously, adhering to numerous complex rules (Amazon guides or Netflix guides)😵‍💫😲 High appreciation is owed to audiovisual translators who help us overcome language barriers👏 Despite a lack of sleep😪, I managed to complete around 25 videos🥳, maintaining good health to meet deadlines🙂 A month later, seeing my name in the video credits was immensely satisfying🤩 Truly a valuable experience!😆😁 #freelancetranslator #translatorlife #subtitleindonesia #subtitler #freelance #indonesianlinguist #amazonprimeseries

1️⃣ MONTHLY REVIEW - JANUARY 2024 January tends to be a slow month for freelancers🧐👩‍💻—perhaps because clients or companies are still in a holiday mood or just getting back to work, organizing their tasks📖✍️ I've taken several translation tests🤓🫡, experiencing both victories and challenges💃, working on marketing materials (updated CV, websites, rates, etc), making it a promising start to the year 2024🤔✨️ Not much exciting happened in January🫣🤫; I focused on a few small projects and updated some old articles💻 I also tried to start mindfulness eating and improve my English through movies (@netflixid @primevideoid @wetvindonesia) 🎬 Well, I've been doing quite a bit of online shopping, mostly for organizers. I def need to cut back in the next couple of months😅 I've increased my activity on both IG and @linkedin 🤗 Although I'm not very active on X, I plan to re-engage starting February and beyond. These three social media platforms—LinkedIn, Instagram, and soon X—are my go-to spaces for connection and enjoyment 😁✌️ "Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned." - Peter Marshall #merrysari_monthlyreview2024 #januaryreview #dryjanuary #januarydump

Sometimes, introverts just crave the company of walls, bed, and the world within 🛌💤🌎 No need for extravagance; the simplicity of solitude is where they find their peace🌙 #IntrovertHaven #SolitudeComfort #introvertthoughts
