well.. I Love the fries but the burger is so so .. I didn’t try the desert though.. but it looks nice ..

utensils nya sih gak yang wow gitu ya, piringnya ngingetin gw Sama piring nenek gw, lol.. and tempat naro tissue nya adalah kaleng bekas susu rainbow yang Sama dia gak dicat lagi..tumplek plek gitu aja..  harga antara 20-50 dirham lah, jadi ya masih reasonable lah.. (untuk ukuran dubai )

the view

jadilah pas Haima dateng, gw Ibti and Haima, ate in yo sushi ! gw ordered salmon fried rice.. nyuummm… *nyeseek sih biasanya kalo makan di yo sushi airport dapet staff price.. Huhu..

the sky of Addis

we can not exchange Ethio’s money in Dubai so we bring USD with us to be exchanged in Addis.

the rate 1 usd : 21 birr ย ( my budget for this trip : 142 USD = 2984 birr )

12321163_10153725018110792_6039718655720237563_n

berasa d nuyok, yellow taxiss.. hahaaa

first day ::

we arrived around 2 pm (flight is departed late almost 1 hour from Dubai) and the immigration queue is not so long but it moves very very slow..

after exchange our money, we were trying to look out for our hotel pick up which is …. none… X_X !!!

ok then , lets make a phone call.. thats when we realized .. we can not use our roaming services! we were trying to look for public phone or sim card provider store when this guy came to us and said come come,, let me help you, — we said boldly, NO, thank you, we have pick up hotel arrangement already.. but then he said you’re coming from Dubai if it is late then the guy must be left already,you can call the hotel from landline over there (pointing on counter which i believe his hotel’s counter ) andย the public phone is not working (true!) and if you want to buy sim card it’s outside — probably he’s bluffing and not sure why , still, we follow him to make the phone call. X_x

the other guy at the counter is the one making the phone call to our hotel. his name is Elfas . after waiting for a while, our pick up arrives and Elfas said he is off tomorrow and would be glad to take us around — we pay any amount we want,,, should we trust him and say yes.. we both looked each other, kind of asking each other, ๐Ÿ™‚

while waiting for the pick up, elfas teach us some of amharic words (the language of Ethiopia)

img_4419-1

we stayed at Zola international hotel.. as booking.com review it’s a good hotel , four stars, clean and safe ! — agreed.period. alhamdulillah. our staying here is a good decision ๐Ÿ™‚

the hotel is 800 birr..

after rest a bit, we went to edna mall.. (which i keep hearing it as ednamon and thought it was some kind like african style historic place, lol)

its about 15 minutes from the hotel by car ..

the mall is kinda like a pasar jatinegara (even jatinegara is better) ๐Ÿ˜€ with the cinema that looks like wiraย …

inside the mall, i was trying to find international chain fast food , but none..

12342653_10153725112515792_8166092936962841986_n

maybe it’s KFC ethiopia’s version

in the street full of beggars .. seems scary though cause they looked at me like they want to eat me,or maybe it’s only my feeling..

after tired of just roaming around, we had rest for a while at kaldi’s coffee ,ย One of the hippest coffee shops in Addis Ababa..

at night , we had our dinner in the restaurant near the hotel and we ordered shiro.. consist of Enjera (ย ษ™nวงรคra แŠฅแŠ•แŒ€แˆซ )ย is an East African breadย with a unique, slightly spongy texture. Traditionally made out of teff flour ,ย ย it is a national dish in Ethiopiaย and Eritrea. the taste is kinda like bread vinegar for me.. (ย shiro as per wikipedia ; a stewย with primary ingredients of powdered chickpeas or broad beanย meal )

day 2 ;

we went to piassa , merkato and post office – it’s the place people usually buy souvenirs (i wanna buy the ethio’s dress for mama) and try again the local dishes..

on the 2nd day we called elfas , he took us to one of his favourite restaurant ,and i ate the raw meat ;D

img_3728

elfas orderedย Bayonet , incase we can not eat the raw meat … bayonet is a popular fasting food for Ethiopians and consists of a few different vegetarian wats like lentils, pea powder, local greens, potatoes, cabbage, carrots and more.

12391128_10153724973560792_4818399221230441478_n

*at the end i only able to eat 3 cubes of raw meat, they dont have any taste and its so cold. ๐Ÿ˜‰

*elfas asked the waiter to cook it – cooked meat , they called it tibs ..

in piassa (inside haron tower , elfas told us to buy tomoca , the leading coffee company in Ethiopia.. he said it has been open since 1953 .

coffee is in fact very popular in Ethiopia.. and elfas told us proudly thatย Ethiopia is the one of the world’s largest coffee producer .. (dalem hati, Indonesia juga keleusss… lol )

passing Bob Marley statue

how Ethiopian drive makes me thinking– salute.. most of the traffic light in the junction is not working (except this one below) and yet they still can very tertib passing the junction ;D bravoo !

ย ย 

bus nya mirip busway di kita yaa ! ๐Ÿ™‚

alpukat and mangganya kecil kecil. Elfas said “because we grow it without any chemical…”

 

Tentang perempuan


Kata2 “tergantung suami” …. it’s annoying and I’m annoyed makanya memutuskan untukย nulis tentangย ini..

saya gak setuju banged dehhh ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Akhlak baik bila suamiย … Wth !! Kenapa jadi bila suami? Jadi peranan orang tua si perempuan gak dianggep? Pendidikan ? Family background ? Helllooo ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Pintar bila suami … Ini ngaco! Kemana rasa haus si perempuan akan ilmu? Kemana lari nya ambisi diri ?

Salehah bila suami… ย Ini makin ngaco lagi,, it is the woman’s own responsibility to strive for Jannah and make herself closer to Her creator !

Jangan bila suami,, jangan tergantung suami,, suami memang tugasnya memimpin tapi biarlah tergantung pada diri sendiri… Sama sama memantapkan diri masing masing..

how i become Indonesian in Dubai

Penang, Malaysia – Aprilย 2010ย 

She laughs so loud when i told her I’m thinking to apply for a job in Emirates, told me don’t dream so high, and be realistic. (that moment when air asia cancelled the route to Abu Dhabi and the fact that i feel career link in Emirates’s website is blinking, lol )ย 

She left me stoned. In my mind running the question, aren’t dreams made to be high so that we can aim higher? and again, WHY. is there anything funny? aren’t you my best friend who just asked me what am i gonna do during my jobless period, who i think suppose to just listen to me and support me mentally in any way you can?ย 

she still cant stop laughing when she finally told me “if my husband who can speak four languages and so much national dialect can’t even get into emirates,why can you ? ” I just sealed my lips. in my heart i whisper, she is wrong God, let me prove it.

after that incident, my days are like other job-seeker, sending email, going to job fair, asking person to another person if they have any connection reading newspaper , browsing and the list go on.ย 

Jakarta, Indonesia, August 2010

it’s more than half of the year that I’m unemployed. been kicked out from my friend’s house ,been treated like you have no value, been humiliated by your (used to be colleagues). just mention it, i’ve been there.

I start to feel like I am a big loser when i applied everywhere, and no reply even one.

I start to disappear from anyone. set status to hiatus.

I know God is listening, I asked HIM many times.

I know God is aware of my pain, I’m trying my best to keep my faith.

I cried to mom, dad , I cried to HIM, I cried for the feeling of failure. for the feeling my life is having no sense. I cried for HIM letting me down so long. I cried until I cant even cry.ย 

my mom told me to not let anyone convince me that i donโ€™t deserve what i want . she said hold on to God, life is a wheel . that’s one of the sweetest song to my soul. I think she saved me by saying that.

on October 20 2010 , exactly, on my birthday, I received an email. when I even not hope for it, when let’s say i forgot about it. I’m glad God hear my prayer and since then i keep my card close to my chest.

I’ll never forget the day i flew for the first time with emirates, I’ll never forget the moment i was so excited to see stars above the ceiling of the plane, I’ll never forget the moment i did my first eye scan. I’ll never forget the moment i first arrive in Dubai airport which will be my workplace,i’ll never forget the shocked i am knowing the toilet can be flush by putting your palm on the sensor. Never forget the day i experienced my first sand storm (i think one of the greatest achievement for people living in Dubai is to walk outside during the storm) and the day i had my first summer (the first time i feel like i’m a grilled meat) the first time i saw Burj Khalifa, go top of it just to scream my name , the day i am able to touch the camel , ride the camel and eat the camel. ^.^

there is sentencesย that i always keep in my dream board and scrapbook

I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it โ€” I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes.

I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me. I am me, and I am Okay.โ€ย 
Denis2005 Virginia Satir quotes (American Psychologist and Educator, 1916-1988)

In life, when God leads you to the cliff, only one of two things will happen. God will either teach you how to fly or catches you when you fall. And things happen for a reason, and itโ€™s definitely for the betterโ€ฆโ€™

I’m a salary-woman in Dubai and a dreamer. I like backpacking and daydreaming. I wanted to learn and get trained.
I’m enjoying myself and eager to pursue a career in this country wholeheartedly.
I would like to have an opportunity as my learning platform to be a better travel-writer .
the idea that my writings and my pictures will be somewhere on the media is just makes my day. ^.^

im pretty sure that this post is there on my draft quite long ! hahhahaa..ย 

you CANT guess life :)

last week is been a hectic week for me and i was feeling a bit down due to the neediness of change in terms of “job” as you are aware that I started to feel bored and fed up(again) of my life, c’mon!ย ive been in the same position for more than 4 years man.. (goin to be five!!! )

soo, yaa,, mungkin cengeng and lemah bgd kdengerannya but that night, i did cry a river. sampai aku lelah dan bahkan sempat berfikir lelah hidup. (God,forgive me! T_T) then without i realized, morning came.. the sun is up and i am awake. my eyes wide open, I watsapp Vina,she also felt down and was crying the whole night too..hmm.. sorry, we are girls! :D..so we agree to just go out .. to anywhere,,,,

that afternoon, we decided to just roaming around festival city,from the abandoned theme park till the helipad,randomly snap pictures and try our best to feel relax..

then, this man came, told us that if we took in the middle of helipad, the view would be nicer, and then he opened the fench for us. (wow,so kind (y) ) we continue our photo session till sunset and nights. and then this man, came again, he turn on the lights and we were so amazed by the view. it’s just beautiful ^^

DSC00427

after we finished,when we walked back to our car, we said thank you to this man. and he introduced himself as Captain Anas, and he is the owner of the helipad. we were like oohh.. WOW.. OKAY… and he gave us the business card and we had a small chat when he suddenly said, so you want to see the view from the helicopter? when are you free ? saturday ?

we were really cant believe what we hear, so we were like hmm.. but we don’t have that amount of budget. that’s when he continue saying “it’s FOC on me” and we both were like “it’s like a dream for us, woww.. is it for real ?” and he straight away took out his phone and called his secretary,, “hey,please book two seat for the helicopter ride on saturday, VIP, FOC on me”

I just cant believe of what i heard and what had happened to me.. imagine, i was crying and feeling down the night before and got this life time chance to ride a helicopter in Dubai the next day… I swear,I really cant guess life…

the ride is for 22 minutes. our pilot that day is thiego, from Brazil.

the view ? it was AMAZING.. “mewah kalo kata Andi” ย 

but well, I will not deny that i prefer more fresh greenier view for my eyes right now.. ย ๐Ÿ˜ก
