VISTA #10: Battle of The Southeners

Hey you guys!

If you read my previous VISTA, you could see that after the farewell party, I had to go to the box early in the morning the next day. That’s because our box held our first CrossFit competition and I was one of the crews. WOOOOOPPP.

So I contacted one of my friends if she still needed more help during the event but apparently they had enough crew and judges. However, one day before the event, she contacted me and asked if I could help her as the scoring team. So I said yes. I was really excited about it!

The night before I went out with my colleagues for karaoke so I was rather tired in the morning (check out the story here). I arrived at the box at 6.30 am but no one was there so I had to wait for around 15 minutes before the others arrived. Then we started to prepare the equipment and everything. Since I didnt have yellow (crew)/orange (judge) t-shirt, my friend lent hers to me. But her t-shirt was orange so I had a different colour hahaha.

After the briefing, many athletes came and registered. Then they started to warm up, while I was trying to figure out the leaderboard and scoring system. One of us brought 3 bottles of coffee. OH THANK YOU. I woke up realllllyyy early and I was sleep deprived so I was really sleepy. Ended up drinking too much, my stomach hurts hahahha.

Anyway, the event went real smooth and fast. I was so amazed by our teamwork actually. We were really efficient and fast. Right after the heat, the judge gave me the score sheet and I inputted it right away. The other crew was really fast at preparing the equipment for the next heat. WOAH. It was sooo fun. Looking at those athletes compete was making me excited!

The event itself started from the idea of one of our coaches, Coach Oka and his team member, Sofia and Adit, when they competed in Malaysia. They thought, hey why dont we create event at our box as well? And boom! The brainstormed the WOD, the event, everything! Damn it was so fun! I really want to participate in another event in the future. I guess I really am stuck in this cult huh? 😀 Once you’re in you cant go back!

Cheers

VISTA #8: Public Butt

Hey you guys!

It’s VISTA time! Oh how I love blabbering on the internet to some random people that I dont know. Hahaha. Today I am going to share a little bit of my trip to Japan.

🚋 Hiroshima Night Tram [Long caption of my blabbering awaits] I had a good time here in Hiroshima. It was a short trip but still memorable. We decided to explore the city at night, unfortunately most of the shops were closed. Can’t blame them, it was rather late. But again, my stomach just kept growling. Eh don’t blame me, Japanese food is lyfeee. . . Another thing why this short trip is memorable is because I got to see something that I shouldn’t see. Don’t get too excited guys, it was a butt. A man’s butt. 🙃 yea. So, before we went to the train station to go to Tokyo, I took a shower in the morning. When I was about to get out from the bathroom, the first thing that I saw was a man’s butt. Butt. 🍑 well my reflexes told me to close the door and said sorry. Inside the bathroom-which-lights-have-been-turned-off-by-me-since-I-have-finished-showering, I was thinking. Why the heck did I say sorry? He’s the one who took off his pants on the corridor. But again, it would be so awkward if I get out and he is still there. But it also is awkward for me just yo stay in this dark bathroom. Eh. What to do. Hahahaha. . . So I got out from the bathroom, hoping that he went back to his room or whatever. Luckily, he wasn’t there. I went back to my room, keep my mouth shut or my parents will get frantic and forbid me to travel alone 🙃 eh but I tell people on the internet. So smart Kem. . . 📸 iPhone X #shotoniphone 💻 #Photoshop #lightroom #Hiroshima #Japan #City #Night #Tram #Nippon #Asia #EastAsia #Travel

As you all know (probably not all of you though), I went to Japan last May-June. My family and I decided to go to Hiroshima because we wanted to see the Atomic Bomb Dome and also Miyajima Island, which is very very beautiful. But that’s another story to tell, now I want to talk a story before I went back to Tokyo.

So, before we went back to Tokyo we wanted to visit the Dome. So I took a shower in the morning. But because there was only 1 bathroom on each floor, I decided to went to another floor and took a shower there. Afterwards, I put on some clothes and turned off the lights. When I was about to get out and opened the bathroom door…. There, I saw it. A butt. Butt. Peach emoji. Butt. We get it Kem, you just saw a butt.

My brain told me to get back to the bathroom, say sorry and close the door. So I did that. Inside the dark bathroom, I was thinking. Why on earth I said sorry and stayed in this bathroom. I meant… I was about to go out and went back to my room. And he was the one who took off his pants on the corridor, in front of the bathroom. Yes, it was a man’s butt. I didnt see his face because I was facing the floor when that happened, hence what I saw. A butt. It was sooo awkward. I could not get out because I didnt know what to say or how to react if he was still outside. But if I kept staying in this dark bathroom, it would be so weird as well. If I turned on the lights, well… not really helping. Still a weird and awkward situation.

Fuck it. Imma gonna come out. So I opened the door and luckily he was not there. I think he was about to fix his pants or something but he never thought that someone was about to get out from the bathroom. I quickly went back to my room and get dressed before we left the hostel. I tried to keep quiet about this whole butt thing in front of my parents. Because if they found out they will get overly protective for some reason, get frantic and forbid me to travel alone again *insert upside down smiling emoji here* hahaha.

But hey, I told people on the internet instead hahaha

Cheers,

VISTA #7: Rome in The Rain

Hey you guys!

It’s VISTA time! Yea yea I know sorry I haven’t uploaded VISTA quite much now. I’m trying to post more, I meant telling story of my picture is my first reason why I’m creating this blog in the first place anyway. Thouuuughh, because i talk a lot my posts tend to disarray hahahahaha.

Roma in the Rain (get it? Get it??) ☔️ taken from inside of a bus 🚌 Luckily I was inside the hop on hop off bus when it started to rain. If I remember correctly, this is my second day in Rome. I walked around with my cousin every single day basically. I'm pretty sure this counts as Rome not Vatican 🤔you could see St. Peter Basilica in this picture (the one in the middle) 🇻🇦 Rome was hot though, I think it was around 35C? The rain was not bad though when I was there. Heh but Jakarta has trained me well hahaha. . . 📷iPhone 5 #italy #travel #rome #vatican #stpeterbasilica #sanpietro #roma #city #cityscape #sky #skyscape #rain #rainymood #mood #moodygrams #europe #visititaly #visitrome #exploreitaly #jalanjalan #photoshop #traveling #throwback #travelgram #tripagram #travelpic #shotoniphone #lightroom #iloveitaly #travelphotography

Anywaaaayy let’s continue with the purpose of this post shall we?

This picture was taken, I think, on my second day in Rome. So it was raining for awhile, a light one actually. This picture actually has been edited on photoshop. So I took this picture from inside the hop on hop off bus. I could sit at the top but since it was raining I decided to sit inside. I wanted to make this picture clearer that I took it inside the bus and edited it to make it more dramatic. But anyway let’s start with the story behind this picture okay

So I really reaaaallyy wanted to go inside the St. Peter Basilica (church) and went to the top so I could see Rome (and Vatican) from above. If you’re wondering which one is the church from this picture, it’s the one in the center of the pic. Yep, the bus passed the church and it happened to be in the center of the pic. Yeayy lucky me. Well you guys, me and morning does not go well. I’m a night owl, it’s hard for me to at least function properly in the morning. Really. Hard. So I didn’t get the chance to go inside the church on my second day.

On the first day in Rome, I just walked around the Piazza (plaza), Colosseum, etc. I pretty much did almost everything on my first day in Rome so I had more time to explore the city without any agenda.

You see, it was really hot so I was kinda glad that it was raining a bit. When I was in Rome, it basically 35C. I know it’s hotter in Europe now! Though I love warm/a bit hot kind of weather, it was still burning. Damn. I remember that at first I wore my jeans but then I just wore shorts for the rest of the trip. Hahahha it was just tooo hot for me to handle.

Rome was really beautiful especially at night. I definitely didn’t regret walking around the city in the middle of the night with my cousin.

Will I come back to Rome again in the future? If I had the chance, why not! What do you think of Rome? Leave me some comments below! 😀

Cheers
